Landscapes of learning by Maxine Greene( Book )

9 editions published between 1973 and 1989 in English and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The commitment of educators to human development goals is a major theme of the booklet's 17 essays. Compiled from lectures written by the author during 1974-77, the essays explore individual potential, the cultural significance of various life situations, and personal fulfillment within each individual's particular landscape of work, experience, and aspiration. Section I examines the relationships among critical reflection, self-awareness, and morality. Contrasts are drawn between those individuals who strive to think and act in reasonable and scientific ways and those who view problems of modern society through magic, ancient myths, and mysticism. Section ii focuses on social issues and assesses their implications for education. Issues discussed include social inequality, the rising number of dropouts, bureaucracy, violence, and the dehumanization of mass society. Section iii presents arguments for including arts and humanities in the curriculum at all levels. The final section concentrates on predicaments of women in education and society. These include sexism in schools, exclusion of women from equal education throughout most of American history, and lack of self-confidence among women. (Author/DB)

Reading and teaching the postcolonial : from Baldwin to Basquiat and beyond by Greg Dimitriadis( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book seeks to bring to the field of education the critical momentum of interdisciplinary theories and postcolonial art and aesthetics. The book explains that postcolonial art means artistic work engaged in the radical reassessment of center-periphery relations, produced in the crucible of colonization and its aftermath of independence and postindependence movements and struggles. It focuses attention on a number of exemplars (C. L. R. James, James Baldwin, Arnaldo Roche-Rabell, Gordon Bennett, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Wilson Harris, Toni Morrison). These exemplars offer transdisciplinary interpretations of the human condition. Following the Introduction, chapters in the book are: (1) "Art as Theory, Practice, and Reflection: The Radical Dimensions of the Postcolonial Imagination"; (2) "Postcolonial Critics and Public Intellectuals: Toward a Richer Democratic Dialogue/Redrawing the Boundaries of Disciplined Pedagogy"; (3) "Wilson Harris and the Pedagogy of the Carnivalesque"; (4) "Toni Morrison's Pedagogical Vision: History and the Ethical Dimensions of the Performative"; (5) "Three Postcolonial Painters: The Pedagogies of Bennett, Roche-Rabell, and Basquiat"; (6) "'Dangerous Crossroads' of Performance and Pedagogy in Global Youth Culture"; and (7) "Beyond Postcolonial Aesthetics: Facing Educational Challenges in the New Millennium." (Contains 180 references.) (Bt)
Volatile knowing : parents, teachers, and the censored story of accountability in America's public schools by Kaia Tollefson( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Volatile Knowing refers to the potential for positive change that can result when parents and teachers discuss the politics and policies of externally defined accountability mandates in education. Kaia Tollefson tells the story of twelve teachers and parents who breached the unofficial but deeply inscribed home school divide to discuss the current accountability-for-uniformity movement that has overtaken the nation's educational agenda at federal, state, and local levels. This kind of volatile knowing offers hope that - together parents and teachers can ignite a new, child-centered movement for accountability and creativity in America's public schools."--Jacket
