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

29 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,398 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
Measured lies : the bell curve examined by Joe L Kincheloe( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,277 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 553 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

12 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 447 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)

What you don't know about schools( Book )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together leading scholars of education to analyze different ways of looking at school. The 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. Twelve ways of looking at school gives professors, students of education, and teachers new strategies and goals for the future of schooling in the United States. INHALT: - What You Don't Know about Schools Is Hurting You and the Country - How Did This Happen? The Right-Wing Politics of Knowledge and Education - What You Don't Know about Standards - What We Don't Know about Evaluation - The Cult of Prescription -- Or, A Student Ain't No Slobbering Dog - School Leaders, Marketers, Spin Doctors or Military Recruiters?

Key works in critical pedagogy : Joe L. Kincheloe by Joe L Kincheloe( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 86 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
Praxis of English language teaching and learning (PELT) : beyond the binaries: researching critically in EFL classrooms( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition of Critical New Literacies: The Praxis of English Language Teaching and Learning (PELT) begins with an examination of bricolage as a way to engage in critical research in TEFL/TESOL teaching and research. The volume considers the quality of ℓ́ℓencounterℓ́ℓ needed in the global and intercultural classroom. The authors address validity, reliability and an authentic need for research which has at its heart ethical practice. Disenfranchisement of the co-participants in research, which is usually not considered, is reviewed in the volume. The manner in which quantitative methods can be used to deliberate on ℓ́ℓpraxisℓ́ℓ is also explored. Self-reflexive practice is at the heart of EFL research and remains central to this volume. The authors are all praxis based research practitioners and make the work of research accessible, equitable and socially just. This series has at its core the need to state that equitable research is about shared authority and shared power. These nine authors address the periphery and in doing so contest the way the world sees research. The PELT series has a disruptive quality as its raison dℓ́ℓetre and Steinberg et al are asking us to revisit; review and re-assess the notion of our life work as researchers in EAL, ESL, TEFL and TESOL. These nine authors are all global leaders in research inquiry and the provocations offered here are unified in the parading by questioning the more traditional field of research inquiry. The ethic of care and courage is encapsulated in this edition
Boy culture : an encyclopedia( Book )

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

"Boy Culture: An Encyclopedia serves as a resource for those interested in developing a broader picture of [the] practices and complex identities captured in a particular boy culture that, in varying degrees, has come to be understood as a representation of times, places, practices, and people among boys. We have produced what we consider to be a broad-reaching though admittedly incomplete set of entries to define boy culture. What we anticipate is that this encyclopedia prompts the discussion and the debate necessary to reconsider and possibly reconfigure our understandings of masculinity and boy culture in particular."--Introduction
Through White Noise : Autonarrative Exploration of Racism, Discrimination, and the Doorways to Academic Citizenship in Canada by Shirley R Steinberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through White Noise is structured around poetry and personal stories about living in liminal space that requires and encourages cultural sensitivity, awareness, and commitment for a just society. A prominent theme in this book is the challenge of reconciling the ideal of Canadian multiculturalism with experiences of marginalization and stereotyping. Before her arrival, Khalida imagined her new homeland as a multicultural rainbow arched over a diversity of races, beliefs and practices. Entering Winnipeg in the middle of winter, she was greeted with a white world: white people, white, snow-covered ground, white trees and a pale blue sky. Jon is a Caucasian professor from England who has a privileged position as an academic citizen. He felt responsible for enhancing his students? awareness of their perceptions, and the role they have in their teaching practices. Reena is a South Asian professor living in Quebec whose voice is combined with other educators as they address different racisms. The book inspires readers to embrace teaching and learning relationships that respect the dynamic spaces we live in locally and globally.

Discourse, Power, and Resistance down Under by Shirley R Steinberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited collection is an eclectic and provocative volume taken from presentations that reflect the scholarship of the inaugural AQR/ DPR Down Under conference that was held in Cairns in 2011 in Australia. This was a ground-breaking conference that brought together scholars, researchers and practitioners from across Australia, UK, Japan, Italy, Finland, New Zealand, Luxembourg, South Africa, Vietnam, Malaysia, Tanzania and Mexico. The theme of the conference represented at the conference and in this volume was that of: Politicizing Qualitative Research. Delegates presented papers that sought to challenge research practices that too often can delegitimize Other ways of knowing. Confronting, disrupting and resisting the epistemological 'common sense' way of doing research within the academy can be a risky business and is often a fraught and contested endeavor. However, as the papers in this volume illustrate, contestation promises opportunities for re-perceiving, re-interpreting, and productively disrupting the orthodoxies of disciplinarity. - 'Many thanks to Ignacio Rojas whose patient assistance and expertise as an artist in designing the cover proved invaluable in bringing this book to print.'
