(Re)Designing Programs: A Vision for Equity-Centered, Clinically Based Teacher Preparation

Author: Jennifer Jacobs
Author: Rebecca West Burns
Abstract: The purpose of this book is to support individuals in designing clinically based teacher preparation programs that place equity at the core. Drawing from the literature as well as our experiences in designing and coordinating award-winning teacher education programs, we offer a vision for equity-centered, clinically based preparation that promotes powerful teacher professional learning and develops high-quality, equity-centered teachers for schools. The chapter topics include policy guidelines, partnerships, intentional clinical experiences, coherence, curriculum and coursework, university-based teacher educators, school-based teacher educators, teacher candidate supervision and evaluation, the role of research, and instructional leadership in teacher preparation. While the concepts we share are research-based and grounded in the empirical literature, our primary intention is for this book to be of practical use.

Author: Dalila Andrade de Oliveira
Author: Marcio Pochmann
Abstract:

A recessão econômica de 2020 é uma das mais graves na história do país. A crise sanitária imposta pela pandemia da covid19 impactou o mundo, mas no Brasil diante do desemprego, da subocupação, da instabilidade do rendimento e da perda de representação e direitos sociais e trabalhistas, a situação é ainda mais preocupante. Este livro busca trazer a lume a marcha da devastação do trabalho no Brasil, especialmente quando a crise pandêmica da covid19 revela as entranhas do neoliberalismo pelas quais a classe do labor sofre e busca resistir. As contribuições contidas nesta obra são resultado do esforço intelectual coletivo de estudiosos, pesquisadores e gestores públicos que procuraram desvendar o movimento da devastação do trabalho imposto pelo neoliberalismo no Brasil e aprofundado pela pandemia da covid19.

A pesquisa como heurística, ato de currículo e formação universitária

Author: Roberto Sidnei Macedo
Abstract:

Faz-se necessário afirmar que a pesquisa como heurística, ato de currículo e (trans)formação universitária se realiza como uma especificidade vinculada à universidade, sua história e cultura acadêmica. Essa obra tem como objetivo a construção de um conjunto de explicitações sobre a proposição heurístico-formacional  da pesquisa universitária. Argumenta como a experiência da construção de saberes vinculada a currículos universitários, porta singularidades próprias. Compreende, ademais, que não se faz pesquisa e nem se forma com ela com um cérebro separado da complexa experiência de quem aprende na universidade e sua biografia formacional.

A Symphony of Possibilities: A Handbook for Arts Integration in Secondary English Language Arts

Editor: Katherine J. Macro
Editor: Michelle Zoss
Abstract: In an educational environment that privileges scripted curricula and intensive preparation for high-stakes tests, the arts offer a more hands-on approach to learning and problem solving, challenging students to approach course material in personal and interactive ways. In A Symphony of Possibilities, experts in their fields explore in detail arts-based pedagogies for secondary teachers of English language arts, focusing on drama, music, poetry, public art, and visual art and sharing proven methods of instruction. Through the arts, we see teachers and researchers who explore and expand on comprehension, memory, issues of identity, and culturally relevant pedagogies, and we see students excited by their active learning. Editors Katherine J. Macro and Michelle Zoss and their contributors provide creative approaches that help teachers accommodate the diversity of their students and their needs, as well as move their students into innovative and thoughtful learning spaces. This book goes a long way toward answering the question, What is the role of the arts for English teachers?

Analyzing Children: Psychological Structure, Trauma, Development, and Therapeutic Action

Author: Edward Kohn
Author: Christie Huddleston
Author: Adele Kaufman
Abstract: This book closely examines the analyses of two little girls. One began analysis having already achieved the transition to a more enduring and reliable psychic structure, a cohesive self. Because she had several experiences that overwhelmed her emotional capacities prior to entering the oedipal phase of development, her oedipal experience was filled with anxiety and overstimulation. At the start of her analysis , the second child contended with anxiety about loss of the object and abandonment, and she struggled with the process of separation/individuation. Her psychic structure, her self, was not cohesive, and she was vulnerable to fragmentation. During her analysis, her stymied development was freed up, and the authors trace the changes within her as psychic structure consolidated and oedipal material took center stage.

Comparison of these two young girls and their analyses enables the authors to illustrate and describe important mental phenomena and psychoanalytic concepts.

Belonging: A Relationship-based Approach for Trauma-Informed Education

Author: Sian Phillips
Author: Deni Melim
Author: Daniel Hughes
Abstract: Even though it is relationships that have hurt students with developmental trauma, it is known that they must find safe relationships to learn and heal. Forming those relationships with children who have been hurt and no longer trust adults is not easy. This book focuses on three important and comprehensive areas of theory and research that provide a theoretical, clinical, and integrated intervention model for developing the relationships and felt sense of safety children with developmental trauma need. Using what is known from attachment theory, intersubjectivity theory, and interpersonal neurobiology, the reader is helped to understand why children behave in the challenging ways they do.

California Foundations of Education: Educational Development within a Diverse Social History

Author: Jana Noel
Abstract:

As Jana Noel taught courses in Educational Foundations, she was constantly struck by the lack of attention to the development of education in California within the currently available Educational Foundations textbooks. As she and other teachers worked their way through traditional texts, they began asking their students questions such as the following. How has the unique, diverse social history of California impacted the development of its public schools? Did California have legalized school segregation? Is there anything about the political structure of California that may have an impact on education? How many times has California law changed to either allow or ban bilingual education? By simply raising questions such as these, Noel noticed a large increase in interest in what had often been considered dry subjects such as history, educational politics, and educational funding. California Foundations of Education addresses the lack of attention to California’s education within Educational Foundations textbooks. The ultimate goal of the book is to scrutinize how education in California has developed in relation to the unique, diverse social history of California.

Children and Money: Cultural Developmental Psychology of Pocket Money

Editor: Takahashi Noboru
Editor: Yamamoto Toshiya
Abstract: In the “Pocket Money Project,” researchers from four countries, Japan, Korea, China, and Vietnam collaborated and studied how children in those four countries were involved with money, combining various research methods and approaches. What our project tries to present throughout this book is that money is not only just a tool of exchange in the context of the market economy; but, it also serves as a tool to mediate human relationships in individual cultures; and the tool is used and mediated by norms. The structure of the norms differs among cultures, and the same action has different meanings; thus, when the structure of norms in a culture is identified, the meaning of an action in the culture becomes clear.

Convictions of Conscience: How Voices From the Margins Inform Public Actions and Educational Leadership

Editor: Brenda J. McMahon
Editor: Lisa R. Merriweather
Abstract: Convictions of Conscience: How Voices From the Margins Inform Public Actions and Educational Leadership seeks to help educational leaders to develop the competencies and capacities required to create socially just and equitable schools. It is for educational leaders interested in transforming systems and decolonizing education rooted socially, structurally and ideologically in hegemony. This edited volume promotes the questioning of assumptions embedded in neoliberal new managerialism practices that often undergird the preparation and training of school leaders. New managerialism in higher education seeks to understand the market forces in order to cater to the idiosyncratic, often self-promoting needs and interests of the few and seeks to respond with programs and policies aligned with those forces and interest.

Crafting a Global Field: Six Decades of the Comparative International Education Society

Editor: Erwin H Epstein
Abstract: The Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) is the oldest and largest body of its kind, and is a leader among the 44 members of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES). This book celebrates the CIES' 60th anniversary.
The Society grew out of a series of conferences in the mid-1950s. Those conferences were attended by a small group of scholars in the USA who were keen to elucidate and expand their field. Now the Society has over 2,500 individual and about 900 institutional members (mainly libraries) around the world.
The book explains how the Society was constructed and internationalized. It analyzes its development trajectory, its major structural components, and the programs and curricula that it has inspired and nourished. The significance of the book is not restricted to the CIES. It will certainly interest counterparts in other WCCES constituent societies and scholars from all fields who are concerned with institutional structures and their evolution.
