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

37 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,753 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
Philosophy of education by Nel Noddings( Book )

47 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,281 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
Critical lessons : what our schools should teach by Nel Noddings( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,207 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
Happiness and education by Nel Noddings( Book )

24 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 917 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

Awakening the inner eye : intuition in education by Nel Noddings( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1998 in English and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the meaning, importance, and uses of intuition. In the first chapter the development of the conceptual history of intuition is traced from the ancient seers, religion, art, psychology, and philosophy. In chapter 2, work which has contributed to the development of intuition as a philosophical and psychological concept is reviewed. In the third chapter, the domains and range of intuition are explored. In chapter 4, a framework is established, built on the notion of "intuitive mode," and intuitive thinking is differentiated from analytic thinking. In chapter 5, ways of enhancing intuitive modes are considered. In the sixth chapter, a variety of specific suggestions are offered for intuitive arrangement and presentation of subject matter, together with rationales for their acceptance and implementaiton. In chapter 7, "Intuition, Love, and Education," it is emphasized that intuition is active in the teacher-student relationship and that teaching may enhance both moral and intellectual sensitivity in students. The eighth chapter deals with recent writings on intuition and their implications for creative teaching. A final chapter on "Conclusions" completes the book. (Jd)
The challenge to care in schools : an alternative approach to education by Nel Noddings( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educating moral people : a caring alternative to character education by Nel Noddings( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An alternative to character education is care ethics. The ethics of care can be seen as fundamentally relational, not individual-agent-based in the way of virtue ethics, and the ethics of care is more indirect than character education. After an introductory chapter that outlines the similarities and differences between character education and care ethics, part 1 discusses moral education from the care perspective. Chapter 2 considers care and moral education. Chapter 3 examines learning to care and be cared for. Chapter 4 examines care and critical thinking. Chapter 5 explores the care tradition. Part 2 looks at the historical and philosophical issues of comparing care ethics with virtue ethics, utilitarianism, and Dewey's pragmatic consequentialism. Chapter 6 explores character education and community. Chapter 7 outlines thoughts on ethical principles underlying education. Chapter 8 contrasts caring for and caring about. Part 3 considers the practical implications of care theory. Chapter 9 offers a moral mission for schools in the 21st century. Chapter 10 examines the educating of moral people. Chapter 11 discusses conversation as moral education. Chapter 12 gives examples of the use of stories and conversation in schools. Chapter 13 looks at the past and future of care ethics. (Contains 128 references.) (Rkj)

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

7 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 708 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 )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 603 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

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

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 526 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"--

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

8 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 471 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
