Teachin’ It! Breakout Moves that Break Down Barriers for Community College Students, by Dr. Felicia Darling, is a practical guide to research and strategies that support students in community college or other open-access colleges. While Teachin’ It! offers best practices for all students, it targets students underrepresented among those with four-year degrees including first-generation college students, students of color,  immigrant students, formerly-incarcerated students, bilingual students, LGBTQ+ students, low SES students, and students with disabilities.

Instructors will explore ed psych theory and neuroscience research that illuminate why their own classroom strategies are so powerful. They will read stories of college instructors and students that bring the research and strategies to life. They will walk away with strategies they can try the very next day in class. Teachin’ It! will encourage instructors to nurture their own equity mindset and inspire them to experiment with new moves that break down barriers and improve access for all students.

Teachin’ It! helps instructors address gaps in knowledge and create inclusive instruction. It promotes instruction that fosters engaging, inquiry-based, collaborative learning environments in which community college students from every background feel safe to take risks, make mistakes, share their unique approaches to learning, and develop identities as powerful life-long learners and professionals. Teachin’ It! is on sale now.
