We saved the best for you : letters of hope, imagination and wisdom for 21st century educators by H.B Holmarsdottir( )

15 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As standardization and ?accountability? have continued to increase in the 21st century, educators and scholars of education have become increasingly frustrated. Yet as frustrated as we are, it is essential that we not send to our our students, children, grandchildren the message that the past was better and they ?should have been there.? Instead, we must render a clear vision of what can be. Indeed, where would we be without the vision we have been freely given to us from great scholars, philosophers, and artists, as well as our own teachers, friends, neighbors, and family? We are indebted to carry forward the legacy of these torchbearers to present and future educators. This book is a collection of letters to 21st century educators of all age levels and content areas. It includes chapters from more than 50 contributors representing leading names in the field of education, emerging scholars of education, and gifted practitioners in schools. It has been compiled with the goal of fulfilling our responsibility to share with the next generation of educators our vision of the future, just as our predecessors and role models shared theirs with us. Informed by the past but oriented toward the future, this collection aims to inspire in present and future educators hope, wisdom and imagination for addressing the educational challenges shaped by bureaucratic, economic and cultural forces. Authors such as Nel Noddings, Sonia Nieto, Sandy Grande, Riane Eisler, Mike Rose, William Schubert, William Reynolds, and many more speak directly to their readers, building a relationship with a scholarly backbone, and encouraging: ?we saved the best for you? because ?the best? is the world you will create." -- Publisher's website
Reclaiming the sane society : essays on Erich Fromm's thought by Seyed Javad Miri( )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erich Fromm's body of work, written more than 50 years ago, was prophetic of the contemporary moment: Increasingly, global society is threatened by the many-headed monster of corporate greed, neo-liberalism, nihilism, extreme fundamentalist beliefs, and their resulting effects on the natural world and the lived lives of people. Fromm clearly warned us of the peril of the misuse of technology and the destructive nature of mans perverse desire to possess, control and/or destroy. Through his theories of having vs. being, the importance of hope as active resistance, and his notion of freedom as the capacity to love self, and others, Fromm encouraged his readers to cultivate biophilic ways of being in the world that will counter and heal the impending necrophilic plunder of mans hubris. This multi-authored volume sheds new light on Fromms forgotten role in the formation of contemporary thought through an engaging variety of reflexive and historical narratives from fields of sociology, clinical psychology, political science, critical theory of religion and education. Key concepts from his body of work are interpreted and expressed in ways that offer hopeful and humane alternatives to the present global conditions of despair, greed and depersonalization
Paulo Freire's intellectual roots : toward historicity in praxis by Tricia M Kress( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paulo Freire's critical pedagogy has had a profound influence on contemporary progressive educators around the globe as they endeavor to rethink education for liberation and the creation of more humane global society. For Freire, maintaining a sense of historicity, that is, the origins from which our thinking and practice emerges, is essential to understanding and practicing education as a means for liberation. Too often, however, critical pedagogy is presented as a monolithic philosophy, and the historical and intellectual roots of critical pedagogy are submerged. Through a compilation of essays written by leading and emerging scholars of critical pedagogy, this text brings history into the present and keeps Paulo's intellectual roots alive in all of us as we develop our praxis today
Critical praxis research : breathing new life into research methods for teachers by Tricia M Kress( )

16 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text transcends longstanding debates over quantitative vs. qualitative and scholar vs. practitioner research. Instructive and uplifting, it shows that research is difficult but also joyful
Teaching towards democracy with postmodern and popular culture texts by Patricia C Paugh( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text supports implementation of a critical literacy of popular culture for new times. It explores popular and media texts that are meaningful to youth and their lives. It questions how these texts position youth as literate social practitioners. Based on theories of Critical and New Literacies that encourage questioning of social rms, the chapters challenge an audience of teachers, teacher educators, and literacy focused scholars in higher education to creatively integrate popular and media texts into their curriculum. Focal texts include science fiction, dystopian and other youth central vels, picture books that disrupt traditional narratives, graphic vels, video-games, other arts-based texts (film/vel hybrids) and even the lives of youth readers themselves as texts that offer rich possibilities for transformative literacy. Syllabi and concrete examples of classroom practices have been included by each chapter author
Using critical research for educational and social change( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume features the works of scholar-practitioners who embrace critical pedagogy and critical research as praxis in qualitative research about education. The authors take an explicit stance toward social justice through education, and they use critical research as a vehicle toward that end. The chapters critically engage with topics such as researcher role and position in critical research; collaborative research models with teachers and students; exploring visual epistemology in schools and with students; critical science education and cosmopolitanism; and developing praxis within teacher preparation courses and teacher research. Contributors push the boundaries of scholarship by presenting nuanced theoretical discussions or critical and timely educational issues via innovative forms of representation (i.e., fiction, narratives, dialogues, rich descriptions, and visuals). This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education. Publisher's note

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As standardization and "accountability" have continued to increase in the 21st century, educators and scholars of education have become increasingly frustrated. Yet as frustrated as we are, it is essential that we not send to our our students, children, grandchildren the message that the past was better and they "should have been there." Instead, we must render a clear vision of what can be.

Maxine Greene and the pedagogy of social imagination : an intellectual genealogy( Book )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Devoted to and inspired by the late Maxine Greene, a champion of education and advocator of the arts, this book recognizes the importance of Greenes scholarship by revisiting her oeuvre in the context of the intellectual historicity that shaped its formation. As a scholar, Greene dialogued with philosophers, social theorists, writers, musicians, and artists. These conversations reveal the ways in which the arts, just like philosophy and science, allow for the facilitation of "wide-awakeness," a term that is central to Greenes pedagogy. Amidst contemporary trends of neoliberal, one-size-fits-all curriculum reforms in which the arts are typically squeezed out or pushed aside, Greenes work reminds us that the social imagination is stunted without the arts. Artistic ways of knowing allow for people to see beyond their own worlds and beyond "what is" into other worlds of "what was" and "what might" be some day. This volume demonstrates Maxine Greenes profound ability to illuminate the importance of the artistic world and the imaginary for development of the self in the world and for encouraging a "wide-awakeness" reflective of an emerging political awareness and a longing for a democratic world that "is not yet."This bookwas originally published as a Special Issue of The Review of Education, Pedagogy and Cultural Studies."--Provided by publisher

Critical Praxis Research by Tricia M Kress( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critical Praxis Research (CPR) is a teacher research methodology designed to bridge the divide between practitioner and scholar, drawing together many strands to explain the research process not just as something teacher researchers do, but as a fundamental part of who teacher researchers are. Emphasizing the researcher over the method, CPR embraces and amplifies the skills and passions teachers naturally bring to their research endeavours. Emerging from the tradition of critical pedagogy, "Critical Praxis Research: Breathing New Life into Research Methods for Teachers" transcends lo
