Summary
    Teaching without Borders: Creating Equity and Inclusion through Active Centralized Empowerment provides educators with theories and conceptual tools that they can use to de-marginalize the classroom. The text introduces readers to Active Centralized Empowerment (ACE), a critical pedagogy, paradigm, and praxis that allows educators to create a classroom environment where all voices can be included and valued, and each student has an equal opportunity to excel.

    This critical pedagogy reflects the idea that every student can learn something new and can be better and more effective when it comes to strategies of inclusion with power. It recognizes students as humans first and demonstrates how their unique attributes and strengths can be leveraged to help them move from the margins. This unique and powerful methodology can be modified for the purposes of each educator and all levels of education, from elementary to university, across all disciplines.

    Designed to help educators create equity within the classroom, Teaching without Borders is an exemplary resource for programs in education.

    "Dr. Collins invites educators to engage with the classroom in a profoundly new way, backed by deep scholarship and with plenty of practical guidance. It is simply revolutionary."

    “In Teaching without Borders, Dr. Janice M. Collins develops a paradigm of Active Centralized Empowerment (ACE) that includes a contract of responsibility and reciprocity from teachers and students. Aiming to nurture and create equity and inclusion, Dr. Collins draws on decades of experience in the classroom and the academic profession. The book is grounded in the core belief that every student can achieve if treated equitably, given power in the pedagogical experience, and recognized as a human being. This book is a must read for those committed to a democratic and liberating pedagogy.”
    Angharad N. Valdivia
    University of Illinois


    “Inclusion is not taught systematically and it is not considered systemically. It is the missing ingredient to systemic transformation in higher education. Dr. Collins offers Active Centralized Empowerment (ACE) as a pedagogical remedy to classroom spaces that exclude BIPOC, Queer and Trans, Disabled, and other marginalized students. Drawing from active and experiential learning techniques, ACE is offered as a powerful tool for all students.”
