This book captures one teacher\'s journey through the first three years of teaching science and mathematics in a large urban district in the US. The authors focus on Ian\'s agency as a beginning teacher and explore his success in working with diverse students. Using critical ethnography combined with first-person narrative, they investigate Ian\'s teaching practices in four contexts: his student teaching experience, his work with students on a summer curriculum development project, his first year of teaching in a small, urban high school, and his second year of teaching in a large, comprehensive high school. In each field, the authors describe the structural changes Ian encounters and the ways in which he re-utilizes the practices he used successfully in previous fields. Specific practices that helped foster community and led to the increased agency of his students as learners are highlighted.\"--Jacket.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
