"In an era in which alternative certification, increased state regulation, and high-stakes testing impinge on effective teacher education, Lucy W. Mule provides us with a positive and convincing perspective on the potential of teacher education to prepare teachers for diverse classrooms. Drawing on work carried out in the education programs of small liberal arts colleges, Mule describes how student engagement in community partnerships contributes to preservice teachers' ability to recognize, respond to, and become a part of diverse approaches to living and learning."---Lisa Smulyan, Swarthmore College
