BOOK REVIEW EXCERPTS:
"A must-read for all educators, particularly science education teachers who serve asinstructors in any STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) related fields. Although this work is geared towards scientists, those who work as social science educators can consider ways of expanding their teaching methodologies as a result of internalizing this book. Christopher Emdin is to be applauded for his unwavering commitment to improving achievement for all students, particularly minority students. "--education review // reseñas educativas (Nov 2011)
"And if I dare say so, Dr. Chris Emdin might be best described as the Godfather of Hip-Hop Education. . . He's a science educator and focuses on how to engage youth and hip hop audiences in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). Just. Pure. AWESOMESAUCE! I tell you. "--DNLee, in her blog The Urban Scientist, at blogs. scientificamerican.com
"Provides a fascinating look at some of the reasons for the disconnect between science educators and urban youths that goes beyond other works focused on urban youths. . . Emdin adds an important perspective to the growing discourse on the role of the student and student culture in science teaching and learning. As students and teachers continue to struggle in urban schools, and educational researchers probe for answers, understanding "hip-hop and its relation to science" (p. 116) can serve to make sense out of complexity and positively transform urban education.

This book clearly recommends teachers to engage in reading and interpreting the unfamiliar gestures and verbal languages of the multicultural students in the science classrooms.
