A pedagogy of responsibility : Wendell Berry for ecojustice education

Rebecca A. Martusewicz (Author)
"Examining the deep cultural roots of social and ecological problems perpetuated by schools and institutions, Martusewicz identifies practices, relationships, beliefs, and traditions that contribute to healthier communities. She calls for imaginative re-thinking of education as an ethical process based in a vision of healthy, just, and sustainable communities. Using a critical analytical process, Martusewicz reveals how values of exploitation, mastery, and dispossession of land and people have taken hold in our educational system and communities, and employs Berry's philosophy and wisdom to interrogate and develop a 'pedagogy of responsibility' as an antidote to such harmful ideologies, structures, and patterns. Berry's critical work and the author's relatable storytelling challenge taken-for-granted perspectives and open new ways of thinking about teaching for democratic and sustainable communities."--Provided by publisher
