Caring, a feminine approach to ethics & moral education by Nel Noddings( Book )

49 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Supplementing her rich theoretical discussion with numerous examples, Nel Noddings builds a compelling philosophical argument for an ethics based on natural caring, as in the care of a mother for her child. In Caring -- now updated with a new preface and afterword reflecting on the ongoing relevance of the subject matter -- Noddings provides a wide-ranging consideration of whether institutions and large organizations, which operate at a remove from the caring relationship, can truly be called ethical. She discusses the extent to which we may truly care for plants, animals, or ideas. Finally, she proposes a realignment of education to encourage and reward not just rationality and trained intelligence, but also enhanced sensitivity in moral matters"--Page 4 of cover
Critical lessons : what our schools should teach by Nel Noddings( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Critical Lessons concentrates on the critical, reflective thinking that should be encouraged in high schools. Taking seriously the Socratic advice "know thyself," it focuses on topics that will help students to understand the forces - good and bad - that work to socialize them. This book argues that critical thinking is necessary in both schools and society, and that it requires the discussion of controversial issues: how we learn, the psychology of war, what it means to make a home, advertising and propaganda, choosing an occupation, gender, and religion. Learning how to discuss such issues is vital for life in a liberal democracy."--Jacket
Philosophy of education by Nel Noddings( Book )

43 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy of Education is designed for general students of education who need to know something about philosophical thought and its exercise in teaching, learning, research, and educational policy. It assumes no previous training in philosophy. Ranging broadly from the great historical figures through John Dewey to contemporary representatives of both analytic and Continental traditions, it is always fair-minded, generous, and undogmatic. Attractive features are the author's nondoctrinaire feminism, her commitment to the empowerment of students, and her coverage of the most recent trends in educational thought. This is an essential book not just for teachers and for future teachers but for anyone needing a survey of contemporary trends in the philosophy of education
The challenge to care in schools : an alternative approach to education by Nel Noddings( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noddings once again envisions a school system built on the idea that different people have different strengths, and that these strengths should be cultivated in an environment of caring, not of competition. She suggests that if we make the responsiveness characteristic of caring more basic than accountability, we can accommodate both traditional and progressive preferences in one school system to the benefit of all ... especially the children. Chapters address the practical and theoretical questions involved in organizing traditional and nontraditional areas of study around themes of care. Introductory chapters focus on caring in general and on the problems of liberal education, while the final chapter offers sound advice for implementing a caring curriculum in our schools. --from publisher description
Happiness and education by Nel Noddings( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores what we might teach if we were to take happiness seriously as an aim of education. It asks, first, what it means to be happy and, second, how we can help children to understand what happiness is. It notes that, to be truly happy, we have to develop a capacity for unhappiness and a willingness to alleviate the suffering of others. Criticizing the current almost exclusive emphasis on economic well-being and pleasure, it discusses the contributions of making a home, parenting, cherishing a place, the development of character, interpersonal growth, finding work that one loves, and participating in a democratic way of life. Finally, it explores ways in which to make schools and classrooms happy places."--Jacket

Education and democracy in the 21st century by Nel Noddings( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Educational philosopher Nel Noddings draws on John Dewey's foundational work to reimagine education's aims and curriculum for the 21st century. Noddings looks at education as a multi-aim enterprise in which schools must address needs in all three domains of life: home and family, occupational, and civic. She raises critical questions about the current enthusiasm for standardization, the search for 'one-best-way' solutions, and the practice of maintaining a sharp separation between the disciplines. Comprehensive in its scope, chapters examine the liberal arts curriculum, vocational education, restructuring secondary school, extracurricular activities, national and global citizenship, critical thinking, and moral education."--Back cover

When school reform goes wrong by Nel Noddings( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this much-needed volume, Nel Noddings uses her extensive experience at every level of schooling to challenge the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Noddings invites readers to think critically about the ideas underlying NCLB, the reform movement that shaped it, and the processes it has put into play. She considers such questions as, Is money the answer to raising test scores? Are failing schools mainly attended by poor children, or are all of our schools failing? Do all students need courses in advanced mathematics, physics, and chemistry? Should special education students be expected to meet the same standards as regular students? Does one standard curriculum serve the needs and interests of all students? Does our current system of schooling undermine the democracy it should support

The maternal factor : two paths to morality by Nel Noddings( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this provocative new book, renowned educator and philosopher Nel Noddings extends her influential work on the ethics of care toward a compelling objective--global peace and justice. She asks: If we celebrate the success of women becoming more like men in professional life, should we not simultaneously hope that men become more like women--in caring for others, rejecting violence, and valuing the work of caring both publicly and personally? Drawing on current work on evolution, and bringing concrete examples from women's lived experience to make a strong case for her position, Noddings answers this question by locating one source of morality in maternal instinct. She traces the development of the maternal instinct to natural caring and ethical caring, offering a preliminary sketch of what a care-driven concept of justice might look like. Finally, to advance the cause of caring, peace, and women's advancement, Noddings urges women to abandon institutional, patriarchal religion and to seek their own paths to spirituality
Peace education : how we come to love and hate war by Nel Noddings( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a huge volume of work on war and its causes, most of which treats its political and economic roots. In Loving and Hating War: An Approach to Peace Education, Nel Noddings explores the psychological factors that support war: nationalism, hatred, delight in spectacles, masculinity, religious extremism, and the search for existential meaning. She argues that while schools can do little to reduce the economic and political causes, they can do much to moderate the psychological factors that promote violence by helping students understand the forces that manipulate them. -- Book Description

A richer, brighter vision for American high schools by Nel Noddings( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In today's high schools, education is often reduced to a means of achieving financial security, leading to an overemphasis on quantifiable measures of performance. This approach encourages academically talented students to focus on test scores and rankings rather than intellectual enrichment, and discourages students with non-academic talents from pursuing them. A Richer, Brighter Vision for American High Schools advocates instead a unifying educational aim of producing better adults, which would encompass all aspects of students' lives: intellectual, physical, moral, spiritual, social, vocational, aesthetic, and civic. Nel Noddings offers suggestions to improve high schools by increasing collegiality among students and faculty, enriching curricula with interdisciplinary themes, renewing vocational education programs, addressing parenting and homemaking, and professionalizing the teaching force. This thought-provoking book will act as an important guide for teachers, teacher educators, administrators, and policy makers"--
