HASH(0x9f992804) von 5 Sternen Teacher from Venus, Pupils from Mars 7. Juli 2013
Von Donald L. Recker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
In Honky in the Ghetto, teacher Trudy Van Slooten takes the reader into a sub-culture of which few readers are aware, let alone will ever experience for themselves. Trudy takes us from her first day as a minority-quota-hire third grade teacher of eight-year-olds-going-on-twenty in terms of their exposure to life's rawest, toughest living enviroment, through twenty years of teaching in an environment only a few miles from the well-to-do suburb in which she had been raised, but light years away from the suburbs in terms of cultural/environmental/social privilege.

Van Slooten introduces us to a variety of pupils who, while reflecting the raw and violent practices/values of the only culture they've known, yet reflect a childlike - and oh so human - zest for life with modest aspirations for something a little better to come along to soften and bring momentary reprieve from life's daily doses of drabness, violence, and fear - even if something so inconsequential as a cafeteria baked butter cookie or something so achingly anticipated as a personal gift from the teacher at Christmas.

Never does Van Slooten cite the humorous and oft-times raw antics and quips of her pupils in order to demean them for such expression, but to expose the emotions and persepctives below-the-surface. Trudy only laughs at herself as she stumbles her way out of the self-imposed confinements and stereotypes of her "honky" perspective into the humbling realization at the end of the term in hearing one of her pupils express shock to hear her tell him that she indeed was "white." All along he had thought of her as being no different than himself, save for her lighter skin and hair!

These are the reflections of a teacher who embraces, respects, and identifies with her young pupils, who in outward circumstances alone are unlike herself and the world in which she once live but - because of what she experienced and learned from her "ghetto" students - a world to which she will never return.

I am thoroughly in awe of Trudy's ability to retell a story. Her usage of vocabulary was superb, she often straddled the line between superfluous and pedestrian without once tripping into either column. You may be asking the question: "Why does this matter?" Trudy does not change the words spoken by her students. She writes their words as spoken, often clearly as painful to hear as they are adorable. The children she taught were part of the infamous Robert Taylor homes. In the event that you were unaware as to the significance of this, let me kindly remind you of its significance. Chicago has often been labeled as the most segregated city in the country. Its South side even to this day remains a dangerous place to live. The people in this setting are quietly struggling and surviving. She tells of students who overcame the odds, but she also tells us of those that did not. It is a very difficult thing to bear witness to such unspeakably barbaric events, criminally negligent parents as well as inept bureaucracy, while also writing in such a warm way. I am proud to recommend this book, as a teacher in similar settings I can attest to its all too stunning accuracy-not having enough supplies, bull from the admin, and the non-working family phone numbers. Read as soon as possible you will not be leave disappointed.

HASH(0x9f888450) von 5 Sternen It was so good, even my husband read it 27. März 2012
Von BunnyN - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
This was the first book I've read on an electronic device. (I downloaded the kindle app onto my tablet - I don't own a kindle.) I had thought that was the reason I read the book in less than three days. It was not. This book grabbed a hold of me in chapter one when I was introduced to a human ecosystem so far removed from my comfortable surburban life that I struggle to find the words to describe the emotion felt learning of the conditions these urban children lived in. The stories within are gut-wrenching and unbelievably hysterical, they seem to be written for a movie. But what kept me up reading well past my bed time was so much more than that - the author's writing style is unique. It's the way she fully describes each character and familial situations, paints the scene with incredible details, and describes each story with wit, humor, lack of judgment and self-deprecation that folds you in and doesn't let you put the book down until you've finished.

My husband hadn't read a book in years until I practically forced him to read this once I had finished. He read it on his phone in less than 24 hours, doubled-over laughing the whole time.

My only complaint was that it wasn't longer.

HASH(0x9f888f6c) von 5 Sternen Right ON!!!! 18. Oktober 2011
Von Joyce Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
After reading Ms. Van Slootens 'book'...I must give it a 5-star rating! I couldn't put it down once I started reading!! The phonetics are especially good. I am married to a black man, and we laughed until we almost cried at some of the situations. The childrens names, were especially funny to us.
Ms. Van Slooten writes in a "visual" feel as if you are right there, experiencing the very things she writes about. Descriptions were awesome. Would recommend it all family and friends
HASH(0x9f88d0d8) von 5 Sternen Honky in the ghetto: A very well written book by Trudy Van Slooten 23. August 2013

Trudy Van Slooten has an excellent way with words: this account of a school in the inner city is very well written. It paints a very vivid picture of life in the Chicago projects and what it is like to teach there. Trudy came every day from the suburbs to not only teach these children -who live a life most of us cannot imagine-, but also to provide love, books (through grants she applied for) and education, with some fun mixed in. I learned a lot about the Chicago Public School System and the challenges teachers, social workers, principals, kids and parents alike face daily.
I would highly recommend this book.
