Transcendental learning : the educational legacy of Alcott, Emerson, Fuller, Peabody and Thoreau by John P Miller( )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transcendental Learning discusses the work of five figures associated with transcendentalism concerning their views on education. Alcott, Emerson, Fuller, Peabody and Thoreau all taught at one time and held definite views about education. The book explores these conceptions with chapters on each of the five individuals and then focuses the main features of transcendental learning and its legacy today. A central thesis of the book is that transcendental learning is essentially holistic in nature and provides rich educational vision that is in many ways a tonic to today's factory like approach to schooling. In contrast to the narrow vision of education that is promoted by governments and the media, the Transcendentalists offer a redemptive vision of education that includes: (1) educating the whole child-body, mind, and soul; (2) happiness as a goal of education; (3) educating students so they see the interconnectedness of nature; (4) recognizing the inner wisdom of the child as something to be honored and nurtured; (5) a blueprint for environmental education through the work of Thoreau; (6) an inspiring vision for educating women of all ages through the work of Margaret Fuller; (7) an experimental approach to pedagogy that continually seeks for more effective ways of educating children; (8) a recognition of the importance of the presence of teacher and encouraging teachers to be aware and conscious of their own behavior; and (9) a vision of multicultural and bilingual education through the work of Elizabeth Peabody. The Transcendentalists, particularly Emerson and Thoreau, sewed the seeds for the environmental movement and for non-violent change. Their work eventually influenced Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. And it continues to resonate today in the thinking of Aung Sang Suu Kyi and the Dalai Lama. The Transcendentalists' vision of education is worth examining as well given the dissatisfaction with the current educational scene
Spirituality, religion, and peace education by Edward J Brantmeier( )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spirituality, Religion, and Peace Education" attempts to deeply explore the universal and particular dimensions of education for inner and communal peace. This co-edited book contains fifteen chapters on world spiritual traditions, religions, and their connections and relevance to peacebuilding and peacemaking. This book examines the teachings and practices of Confucius, of Judaism, Islamic Sufism, Christianity, Quakerism, Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism, and of Indigenous spirituality. Secondly, it explores teaching and learning processes rooted in self discovery, skill development, and contemplative practices for peace. Topics in various chapters include: the Buddhist practice of tonglen; an indigenous Hawaiian practice of Ho'oponopono for forgiveness and conflict resolution; pilgrimage and labyrinth walking for right action; Twelve Step Programs for peace; teaching from a religious/spiritual perspective; narrative inquiry, Daoism, and peace curriculum; Gandhi, deep ecology, and multicultural peace education in teacher education; peacemaking and spirituality in undergraduate courses; and wisdom-based learning in teacher education. Peace education practices stemming from wisdom traditions can promote stillness as well as enliven, awaken, and urge reconciliation, connection, wisdom cultivation, and transformation and change in both teachers and students in diverse educational contexts. In various chapters of this book, a critique of competition, consumerism, and materialism undergird the analysis. More than just a critique, some chapters provide both conceptual and practical clarity for deeper engagement in peaceful action and change in society. Cultural awareness and understanding are fostered through a focus on the positive aspects of wisdom traditions rather than the negative aspects and historical complexities of violence and conflict as result of religious hegemony. Following "Introduction: Toward an Integrated Spirituality for Peace" by Edward J. Brantmeier, this book contains the following: Part I: Great Wisdom Traditions and Peace Education: (1) Confucius' Teaching of Virtues: Implications for World Peace and Peace Education (Jing Lin and Yingji Wang); (2) Islamic Sufism and Education for Peace (Michelle Ayazi); (3) a Jewish Perspective on Peace Education (Reuben Jacobson and Moishe Steigmann); (4) How Christianity Addresses Peace and What This Means for Education (Rebecca L. Oxford); (5) Peace Education and the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) (Mary Lee Morrison and Ian Harris); (6) Hinduism and Peace Education (Priyankar Upadhyaya); (7) a Tibetan Peace Perspective (Jia Luo); (8) Indigenous Spirituality as a Source for Peaceful Relations (Four Arrows aka Don Trent Jacobs); and Part ii: Peace Education, Teaching and Learning, and Spirituality: (9) Contemplative Practices in Counseling and Education: a Course in Nonviolent Intervention for Counselors and Teachers (Nathalie Kees); (10) Finding Peace via Reconciliation and Awakening: 12-Step Programs and Education for Religion, Spirituality, and Peace (D. Brent Edwards Jr.); (11) The Place of Spirituality in the Life and Work of Ismaili Teachers of Central Asia (Sarfaroz Niyozov and Zahra Punja); (12) Daoism, Narrative Inquiry, and a Curriculum of Peace (Xin Li); (13) Peacemaking and Spirituality: Bridging Faith, Values, Understanding and Life Skills (William M. Timpson); (14) "Self" Re-Education for Teachers: Gandhi, Deep Ecology, & Multicultural Peace Education (Edward J. Brantmeier); (15) Educating for Wisdom (John P. Miller).

Models of moral education : an appraisal by Richard H Hersh( Book )

11 editions published between 1979 and 1996 in English and Chinese and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines six models of moral education: rationale building, consideration, values clarification, value analysis, cognitive moral development, and social action. The public is demanding that schools become increasingly involved in moral education. More than two thirds of the respondents to 1975 and 1976 Gallup polls on education stated that schools should take on a share of the responsibility for the moral development of their students. Because of the complexity of moral education, no one educational model is sufficient. However, the collective strengths of various models can provide the foundation for a comprehensive program in moral education. The six models described were chosen because each has been used extensively in the public schools and because they are mutually complementary. The rationale building model is primarily concerned with the realm of judging. The consideration model stresses the importance of caring as distinct from judging. Values clarification sees moral education more in terms of promoting self-awareness and self-caring than in solving moral problems. Value analysis helps students learn a highly systematic, step-by-step process for making moral decisions. The overall aim of the cognitive moral development approach is to help students think through moral controversy in increasingly clear and comprehensive ways. The social action model, which has been called the Ralph Nader version of moral education, makes citizen action for change the main focus of the curriculum. (Author/RM)
The educational spectrum : orientations to curriculum by John P Miller( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Curriculum, perspectives and practice by John P Miller( Book )

8 editions published between 1985 and 1990 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces three major orientations to curriculum--the transmission, transaction, and transformation positions--and examines the philosophical, psychological, and social/economic foundations on which they are based. Part one of the text describes these three orientations in detail and shows how they can be used as helpful tools in understanding and analyzing curriculum tasks. Part two focuses on the primary curriculum tasks--development, implementaton, and evaluation--and shows how each of these components of the curriculum process can be conducted from each of the orientations presented in part three. The purpose of this text is to help both the practicing and the future educator conduct curriculum practices from an integrated perspective, one that is consistent with his or her world view. (Jd)

Miller's engaging discussion of timeless learning reminds us that wisdom as an outcome of education is more than skills mastery and high-stakes assessments. Among the benefits to students discussed here are wholeness; a sense of purpose; improved attention, alertness, perception, and memory; and reduced stress and anxiety achieved through meditation, contemplation, and reflection." -- book cover

Love and compassion : exploring their role in education by John P Miller( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Teachers often speak about their love for their subject, their students, and their vocation. As multidimensional as love is, it can be a taboo subject relative to teachers and students. In Love and Compassion, John P. Miller explores different forms of love, including self-love, love of others, love of beauty, and love of learning, and how they can be nurtured in an educational setting to improve teaching and learning. Love and Compassion is both a practical and conceptual work, and will interest those involved in the study and practice of holistic and contemplative education. In addition to the different dimensions of love, Miller discusses nonviolent action and compassion and how they are crucial to the practice of teaching, and reflects on his own and his students' experiences with creating a loving environment in the classroom."
Holistic learning : a teacher's guide to integrated studies by John P Miller( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim and focus of holistic learning is making connections, E.G., connections between subjects or between thinking and intuition. Integrated studies implies a holistic approach to learning and a curriculum that has the capacity to combine three positions on the function of schooling: transmission of facts, skills, and values; transaction or dialogue between student and subject matter resulting in reconstruction of knowledge; and personal and social transformation. This guide outlines strategies and ideas emphasizing transformational approaches to integration and focusing on human processes and human themes. Specifically, problem solving (human process) and mythology (human theme) have been selected as vehicles for curriculum integration. Along with a number of specific strategies for classroom use, the book includes a rationale and framework for integrated studies, teaching approaches in problem solving and mythology, guidelines for writing units in integrated studies, and implementation strategies for integrated studies.

Teaching with the wind : spirituality in Canadian education by Michael Dallaire( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teaching with the Wind tackles the question, "Can education for a Canadian civic spirituality bridge the sometimes incommensurable worldviews of faith-based schools and secular public schools?" An affirmative answer is offered based on two foundations. First, that a national soul can be identified and thus serve as the content of spiritual education in Canada schools. Second, that a reconstructed approach to the contemplation-in-action method found in world religions and philosophy can provide an appropriate pedagogy for Canadian spiritual education. This book argues that education for civic s
