Kinderculture : the corporate construction of childhood by Shirley R Steinberg( )

30 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a series of entertaining and insightful essays, Kinderculture: The Corporate Construction of Childhood explores some of the icons that shape the values and consciousness of children, from Beavis and Butt-Head to Barney, from Disney movies to Nintendo. Contributors drawn from the fields of education, sociology, and popular culture analyze the profound effects and the pervasive influence of these corporate productions in a style parents, educators, and general readers will welcome. Arguing that the experience in childhood has been, with or without our consent, reshaped into something that is prefabricated, Shirley Steinberg and Joe Kincheloe bring home to readers the impact our "marketing blitz" culture has on our children - and on our beliefs about childhood

Boy culture : an encyclopedia by Michael Kehler( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Boy Culture: An Encyclopedia" spans the breadth of the country and the full scope of a pivotal growing-up time to show what 'a boy's life' is really like today. With hundreds of entries across two volumes, it offers a series of vivid snapshots of boys of all kinds and ages at home, school, and at play; interacting with family or knocking around with friends, or pursuing interests alone as they begin their journey to adulthood. "Boy Culture" shows an uncanny understanding of just how exciting, confusing, and difficult the years between childhood and young adulthood can be. The toys, games, clothes, music, sports, and feelings - they are all a part of this remarkable resource. But most important is the book's focus on the things that shape boyhood identities - the rituals of masculinity among friends, the enduring conflict between fitting in and standing out, the effects of pop culture images, and the influence of role models from parents and teachers to athletes and entertainers to fictional characters

7 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in English and held by 1,406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christotainment examines how Christian fundamentalism has realigned its armies to combat threats against it by employing the forces it once considered its chief enemies: the entertainment media, including movies, television, music, theme parks, video games, and books.

Measured lies : the bell curve examined by Joe L Kincheloe( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication of Herrnstein and Murray's The Bell Curve enraged readers with its controversial racial and intellectual agenda, which suggested that certain groups of children are genetically unable to learn because of their race and, therefore, unworthy of the educational attention and financial resources that flow from federal and state governments. In Measured Lies, the first thoughtful and reasoned reading of The Bell Curve, Joe Kincheloe, Shirley Steinberg, and Aaron Gresson have assembled some of the most well-respected educators and social theorists writing today. Henry Giroux, Joyce King, Cameron McCathy, Michael Apple, Sander Gilman, Peter McLaren, and many others respond to The Bell Curve chapter by chapter, ultimately taking apart Herrnstein and Murray's argument and exposing the measured lies on which it is based. In addition, the book contains interviews with Paolo Friere, Ellen Willis, Ivor Goodson, and Stanley Aronowitz. Measured Lies is a searing indictment of racism and the way individuals can use it to subvert truth and amass power

Contemporary youth culture : an international encyclopedia by Shirley R Steinberg( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Youth as a unique group is a 20th century idea. The changes wrought worldwide by WWII, propelled adolescence to a status and identity that coincided with unparalleled economic growth. While developmental psychologists refined their theories of normal growth and maturation, society and the media were at work constructing youth as consumers, thereby liberating them from traditional family controls. An increasingly smaller world impinges mightily on the culture of youth. An international and inter-disciplinary roster of experts shed light on today's youth culture by exploring such topics as hip hop culture; punk culture; social justice movements; video games; political activism; language and identity; post-feminism; television; rites of passage; heterosexuality and homosexuality; race and ethnicity; social class; poetry and literature; visual art; conceptions of beauty and body image; academics; sports; drugs; families; refugee youth; the Internet; youth journalism; fashion; and violence. Adults and adolescents will find this authoritative and reliable guide accessible and fascinating. In addition to excellent essays, users will find a timeline of contemporaneous international develpments in youth culture. An introductory essay places youth in historical and contemporary contexts and underscores the notion that despite their power as consumers in a market-oriented world, youth are still seen--and see themselves--in contradictory ways. In short, this work brings new understanding to the complex and fluid phenomenon of youth culture

8 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What you don't know about schools( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together leading scholars of education to analyze different ways of looking at school. Steinberg, Kincheloe, and a group of contributors argue that the goals of education are reduced by a superficial public conversation. Simplistic political views and strategies for reform ignore the complexity of the educational process. The debate over the purpose of schooling is lost. This dynamic produces an impoverished debate about the role of schools in a democratic society, the nature of learning, what constitutes good teaching, diverse ways of evaluating educational excellence, and a myriad of other pedagogical issues. What you don't know about schools gives professors, students of education, and teachers new strategies and goals for the future of schooling in the United States. --Publisher description

14 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides alternative answers to those questions about the American educational system that have been answered until now by an outmoded, conservative educational agenda. Following the introduction that describes the rationale for a postmodern deconstruction of educational narratives, 13 chapters present essays on the following questions: (1) What are the basics and are we teaching them? (2) Who decides the form schools have taken and who should decide? (3) Is it true that teachers are not as good as they used to be? (4) Do students misbehave more than they used to? (5) What good is teaching and how do we teach people to be good teachers? (6) Should the fact that we live in a democratic society make a difference in what our schools are like? (7) In what ways does gender affect the educational process? (8) In what ways does race affect the educational process? (9) In what ways does class affect the educational process? (10) What role should religion play in the public schools? (11) What have been the effects of the attempts to improve education over the last decade? (12) What's missing in the public conversation about education? And (13) What are schools for and what should we be doing in the name of education? References accompany each chapter. (Lmi)
Key works in critical pedagogy : Joe L. Kincheloe by Joe L Kincheloe( )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Key Works in Critical Pedagogy: Joe L. Kincheloe comprises sixteen papers written within a twenty-year period in which Kincheloe inspired legions of educators with his incisive analyses of education. Kincheloe was a prolific thinker and writer who produced an enormous number of books and chapters and journal articles. In a career cut short by his untimely death, Kincheloe led the way with an approach to research and pedagogy that incorporated multiperspectival approaches that examined a wide range of topics including schooling, cultural studies, research bricolage, kinderculture, Christotainment, and capitalism. In these works Kincheloe used accessible, elegantly produced language to capture his emotional yet scholarly ways of engaging with the world. He was a champion of the disenfranchised and his writing consistently examined social life from the perspective of participants who were often treated harshly because of their marginalization. The articles in this book were selected to encompass Kincheloe's impressive scholarly career and to draw attention to the necessity for educators to take a critical stance with respect to the enactment of education to reproduce disadvantage. Among the theoretical frameworks included in the works are critical pedagogy, research, hermeneutics, phenomenology, cultural studies, and post-formal thought. Key Works in Critical Pedagogy is a comprehensive introduction to the scholarly contributions of one of the foremost educational researchers of our time. The selected chapters and associated scholarly review essays constitute a reference resource for researchers, educators, students of education -- and all of those with an interest in adopting a deeper view of ways in which policies and practices shape education and social life to produce privilege and disadvantage simultaneously in ways that are often hidden from view. The critical perspective that permeates these works constitute ways of thinking and being in the world that others can adopt as a framework for analyzing their engagement in education as researchers, teacher educators, policymakers, students, parents of students, and members of the community at large. Responding to each of Kincheloe's chapters is a scholar/teacher who is intimately familiar with the works, theories, and epistemologies of this unique scholar."--Publisher's website

Thinking queer : sexuality, culture, and education( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thinking Queer takes up the challenges of queer theorizing for education by interrogating the effects of representation through voice and visibility, the interplay of social and academic knowledges and ignorances, and the performative aspects of queer identities and practices. Engaging ethnography, philosophical policy, and social analysis, cultural and media studies, and theoretical stances from psychoanalysis to complexity theory, the essays in this volume challenge readers to move beyond the logic of identity politics in order to consider the limitations and possibilities of cultural and institutional policies and practices in K-12 and higher educational contexts. This volume offers analyses of queer subjects that frame possibilities for new forms of inquiry into queer politics and practices and suggests tactics for educational change."--BOOK JACKET
