Critical Dialogues in Higher Education

Author: Nance T. Algert
Author: Clare A. Gill
Abstract: This book is designed to support individuals, particularly in higher education settings, gain knowledge and skills related to critical dialogues that support effective conflict management. Higher education institutions and its stakeholders such as faculty, staff, students, and administrators are often perceived for their proclivity to foster debate. This book is not about how to facilitate debate, but rather, dialogue, which if managed well, can lead to positive growth, learning outcomes, and increased productivity. Dialogue as a method for effective conflict management is an underutilized method of communication. Contents of the book include modules that address communication skills, conflict management styles, working in small groups or teams, how to facilitate change, and research-based resources and references for conflict management.

Critical Race Theory in Education

Author: Gloria Ladson-Billings
Abstract: This important volume brings together key writings from one of the most influential education scholars of our time. In this collection of her seminal essays on critical race theory (CRT), Gloria Ladson-Billings seeks to clear up some of the confusion and misconceptions that education researchers have around race and inequality. Beginning with her groundbreaking work with William Tate in the mid-1990s up to the present day, this book discloses both a personal and intellectual history of CRT in education. The essays are divided into three areas: Critical Race Theory, Issues of Inequality, and Epistemology and Methodologies. Ladson-Billings ends with a postscript that looks back at her journey and considers what is on the horizon for other scholars of education. Having these widely cited essays in one volume will be invaluable to everyone interested in understanding how inequality operates in our society and how race affects educational outcomes.

Cultivating Rural Education: A People-Focused Approach for States

Editor: Caitlin Howley
Editor: Sam Redding
Abstract: Rural life is more complex than it is perhaps credited. This edited volume explores several themes that highlight such complexities, particularly in terms of what they imply for rural teaching and learning. These themes include the geographic, demographic, and socioeconomic diversity within and across rural communities; the notion that rurality is not a deficit but rather a context; and the array of novel and interesting ways to build upon rural assets and overcome challenges so that rural students are not afforded fewer educational opportunities simply by virtue of their zip code. More practically, this book offers counsel for readers who may be interested in learning more about rural circumstances so that they can make informed and responsive decisions about policies and programs targeting rural students, educators, and schools.

Culturally Competent Engagement: A Mindful Approach

Author: Edward J. Brantmeier
Author: Noorie K. Brantmeier
Abstract: This book provides conceptual context for tried and true learning exercises that promote deeper self-understanding, ways to connect with people who are culturally different, and an understanding of the systems (socio-cultural, economic, political, and environmental) that circumscribe our lives. Written for organizational leaders, university instructors, students, and practitioners, this book includes typical approaches to enhancing culturally competent engagement, yet has several special features that differentiate it from approaches in other books and articles on the topic. Typical approaches to developing cultural competence focus on acquisition of communicative skills, behaviors, and dispositions needed to effectively navigate cross-cultural relationships and function effectively in multicultural environments. We include and build on these approaches by adding a layer of critical and complex systems understanding as a necessary foundation for effective cross-cultural engagement. The Self-Other-Systems approach challenges readers via concrete learning exercises that nudge one along the life-long path of culturally competent engagement.

Currículo e estética da arte de educar

Author: Janete Magalhães Carvalho
Author: Sandra Kretli da Silva
Author: Tânia Mara Zanotti Guierra Frizzera Delboni
Abstract:

O livro objetiva a abertura dos intermundos que habitam nossas infâncias e nossas pesquisas. É composto não somente de textos escritos por participantes do Grupo de Pesquisa Com-Versações, mas também congrega resultados de pesquisas e ensaios muito plurais em duplo sentido: a) pelos signos artísticos enfocados (teatro, literatura, cinema, oficinas, desenho, pinturas etc.; b) pelo número expressivo de instituições de ensino superior aqui representadas por meio de seus pesquisadores que conosco se envolveram nessa viagem atrás de um Coelho Branco que, olhando o relógio retirado do bolso do colete, continua a correr e, passando por este livro, sempre faz uma reverência e diz: — Vai começar tudo de novo! Assim, esperamos que vicejem outras ideias, outras parcerias, outros afetos e afecções que, atravessando estas páginas, potencializem novas discussões, problematizações e que, incansavelmente, sempre comecemos tudo de novo na diferença da repetição.

Currículos em redes e pesquisas com cotidianos e… Movimentos, repetições e diferença na imanência de uma vida

Author: Carlos Eduardo Ferraço
Abstract:

Multiplicar-se, extravasar-se, transbordar-se... Como se jogar no mundo da escrita sem inventar um fio de Ariadne que possa dar sentido ao vivido? Como não ter uma linha molar que possa costurar os retalhos de nossos ideais, sonhos, desejos e expectativas? A proposta deste livro decorre da produção do desejo de escrever sobre alguns fios de memória enredados em diferentes processos de subjetivação que insurgem como territórios existenciais, constituindo-nos na imanência de uma vida. Ao afirmar que escrever não tem outra função a não ser se instituir como fluxo que se conjuga com outros fluxos, Deleuze nos dá pistas para não fazer da escrita algo pessoal, algo que torne a vida um segredo a ser revelado com o ato de escrever, e que não teria outro fim que não a própria escrita. Pelo contrário, a ideia é pensar a escrita como exercício de abertura para o mundo e saída de si. Se entendemos que nossos textos são sempre provisórios, não seria interessante voltar a esses textos, movidos pelo desejo de intervir neles com outras escritas, produzindo escritas sobre escritas? Velhas-novas-outras escritas enredadas por múltiplos sentidos produzidos no próprio ato-movimento da escrita? Escritas em expansão que possam atualizar virtuais e potencializar o inacabamento, a efemeridade e a fugacidade do próprio texto, de modo a corromper seu status de autoria-objetividade-verdade-neutralidade-autoridade? Foi essa a força-motivação para a produção deste livro.

Curriculum Windows: What Curriculum Theorists of the 2000s Can Teach Us About Schools and Society Today

Editor: Thomas S. Poetter
Editor: Kelly Waldrop
Editor: Kimberly Pietsch Miller
Editor: Cynthia Sanders
Editor: Andy Hatton
Abstract: The authors explore how key books/authors from the curriculum field of the 2000s illuminate new possibilities forward for us as scholar educators today: How might the theories, practices, and ideas wrapped up in curriculum texts of the 2000s still resonate with us, allow us to see backward in time and forward in time - all at the same time? How might these figurative windows of insight, thought, ideas, fantasy, and fancy make us think differently about curriculum, teaching, learning, students, education, leadership, and schools? Further, how might they help us see more clearly, even perhaps put us on a path to correct the mistakes and missteps of intervening decades and of today?

Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment: Intersecting New Needs and New Approaches

Editor: Sandra L. Stacki
Editor: Micki M. Caskey
Editor: Steven B. Mertens
Abstract: The lives of middle school students are dynamic, and their needs and desires are always evolving. They experience more complicated lives as influences of the broader society including popular media and technology, immigration and cultural diversity, amplified political divisiveness, and bullying effect their daily lives both in and out of school. These influences have contributed to the need for more socialemotional support and the desire of students and teachers alike to find and express their voices. Since the publication of the 2002 Handbook volume focusing on curriculum, instruction, and assessment, the ideas, approaches, and practices of middle school educators and researchers have also needed to evolve and change in many ways to meet these changing realities and the needs of students, teachers, and schools. This volume includes chapters focusing on varying aspects of curriculum, instruction, and assessment currently being implemented in middle grades classrooms across the country.

Defining Hybrid Homeschools in America: Little Platoons Hardcover

Author: Eric Wearne
Abstract: Defining Hybrid Homeschools in America: Little Platoons explores the idea of hybrid homeschools, where students attend a formal school setting for part of the week and are homeschooled the rest of the week. Eric Wearne observes that school choice in America typically comes in two forms: programs set up for disadvantaged students, and the more common form of choice that wealthy parents can exercise—paying private tuition or moving to a more desirable school district. While disadvantaged families in many places and wealthy families everywhere can exercise choice when it comes to schooling, a sizeable group typically gets left out of those options—the large number of families who are too wealthy to access state or local programs, but not wealthy enough to pay for private schooling or moving expenses. Wearne argues that this is a long-term weakness for school choice in America; the middle class is generally a well-off demographic, but is almost completely unserved when it comes to this large aspect of their children’s lives. However, one low-cost option has arisen to address this niche: hybrid home schools. Wearne cites existing research to argue for this model’s efficacy for the middle class as a strong example of a healthy civil society and examines how policy definitions are breaking down and evolving in education as we challenge the existing definitions of schooling.

Democratic Discord in Schools: Cases and Commentaries in Educational Ethics

Editor: Meira Levinson
Editor: Jacob Fay
Abstract: Teaching in a democracy is challenging and filled with dilemmas that have no easy answers. For example, how do educators meet their responsibilities of teaching civic norms and dispositions while remaining nonpartisan? Democratic Discord in Schools features eight normative cases of complex dilemmas drawn from real events designed to help educators practice the type of collaborative problem solving and civil discourse needed to meet these challenges of democratic education. Each of the cases also features a set of six commentaries written by a diverse array of scholars, educators, policy makers, students, and activists with a range of political views to spark reflection and conversation.

Developing Trauma-Responsive Approaches to Student Discipline: A Guide to Trauma-Informed Practice in PreK-12 Schools

Author: Kirk Eggleston
Author: Erinn J. Green
Author: Shawn Abel
Author: Stephanie Poe
Author: Charol Shakeshaft
Abstract:

Building on comprehensive research conducted in US schools, this accessible volume offers an effective model of school leadership to develop and implement school-wide, trauma-responsive approaches to student discipline. Recognizing that challenging student behaviours are often rooted in early experiences of trauma, the volume builds on a model from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to walk readers through the processes of realizing, recognizing, responding to, and resisting the impacts of trauma in school contexts. Research and interviews model an educational reform process and explain how a range of differentiated interventions including Positive Behaviour Interventions and Supports (PBIS), social-emotional learning (SEL), restorative justice, and family engagement can be used to boost student resilience and pro-social behaviour. Practical steps are supported by current theory, resources, and stories of implementation from superintendents, principals, and teachers.

Didática e docência: Pesquisas atuais

Editor: Carmem Lúcia Eiterer
Editor: Nair Pires
Editor: Vanessa Regina Eleutério Miranda
Abstract:

O tema central desta obra é a construção dos saberes docentes acerca do ensino; trata-se de indagar como opera a constituição desses saberes que constituem a profissionalidade docente. Reconhecemos a profissão docente como ofício dotado de saberes próprios, específicos. Longe de uma compreensão meramente técnica dos saberes docentes que reduziria o ensino a apenas um saber como fazer, a função socioprática de ensinar requer a compreensão do saber fazer agregada ao saber por que fazer. Assim, ensinar implica a compreensão, problematização e proposição acerca do ensino.

Editor: Tachelle Banks
Editor: Jessica Graves
Editor: Anthony F. Rotatori
Abstract: To support excellence in ECE, it is critical how the knowledge about individual children and child development principles combined with the knowledge of effective early learning practices. Effective early childhood education involves an interdisciplinary collaborative process that is influenced by many factors. We present these aforementioned realities in Educating Young Children With and Without Exceptionalities: New Perspectives. In addition, we argue that general and special educators need to focus on applying new knowledge to better address critical issues that advance the field of educator preparation and improve educational outcomes for young children.

Education and Climate Change: The Role of Universities

Editor: Fernando M Reimers
Abstract: This open access volume draws on a multidimensional model of educational change, the book reviews the field of climate change education and identifies some of the areas in which past efforts have fallen short in supporting effective pedagogical change at scale.

Education for Democracy: A Renewed Approach to Civic Inquiries for Social Justice

Author: Steven P. Camicia
Author: Ryan Knowles
Abstract: Utilizing theory and research, Camicia and Knowles promote instructional methods that are responsive to changing cultural and political contexts. There is an increasing need to rethink democratic principles and how these principles might be supported in classrooms in order to teach for social justice. This requires a move away from often stated idealistic notions of deliberative democracy, toward a perspective of education for democracy that incorporates aspects of identity, interests, and inequitable power relations within society.

Educational Leadership for Social Justice and Improving High-Needs Schools: Findings from 10 Years of International Collaboration

Editor: Bruce G. Barnett
Editor: Philip A. Woods
Abstract: To commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the International School Leadership Development Network (ISLDN), this book is a compilation of the work conducted by network scholars. This volume is the first comprehensive overview of the studies conducted by ISLDN members engaged in examining how social justice leaders and leaders of high-needs schools address the social conditions, learning experiences, and performance of their students. Other international school leadership research consortia have emerged in the 21st century; however, the ISLDN is the second longest operating project, after the International Successful School Principalship Project (ISSPP). Since its creation in 2010, ISLDN scholars have delivered papers at a variety of international conferences and shared findings in research publications, including books and special issues of journals. Until now, ISLDN research findings have been disseminated separately for the project’s two strands: (a) social justice leadership and (b) leadership in underperforming high-needs schools.

Educational Research and Schooling in Rural Europe: An Engagement with Changing Patterns of Education, Space and Place

Editor: Cath Gristy
Editor: Linda Hargreaves
Editor: Silvie R. Kučerová
Abstract: This book provides authentic accounts of the effects of the revolutionary political reform experienced in the past half century on education in Europe’s considerable rural hinterland. These reforms include the liberation of the Baltic and Eastern European states from Soviet communist domination, the ‘eurozone’ economic crises, and the current and future migration of people fleeing war and poverty from the Middle East and Africa. Overshadowing these events are so-called global forces which champion economies of scale and pressurize academic performance as keys to economic success. Trapped in this distal whirlwind of change are 1000s of small and/or rural elementary schools and the life chances of more 1000s of young children. The research presented here unveils the unseen and under-reported consequences of top-down, urban-oriented educational policies on children’s and communities’ experience of place and space. Exposure of these conditions in rural Europe is long overdue, but obscured for decades by political extremes of left and right. Yet, the lived reality of peremptory and swathing school closure programmes, and poverty inflicted on rural populations in parts of Eastern Europe is relatively unreported in the western educational literature – a situation exacerbated by the virtual invisibility of rural educational research generally. The chapters in this book reveal the insights of social science scholars from 11 European countries including those from low GDP, formerly soviet bloc countries, recently enabled to present their research at western European conferences such as the European Educational Research Association.

Engaging Literate Minds: Developing Children’s Social, Emotional, and Intellectual Lives, K–3

Author: Peter Johnson
Abstract: Increasingly, educators are recognizing that for children to thrive intellectually they need socially and emotionally healthy classrooms. Conveniently, this is exactly what parents have always wanted for their children—classrooms that offer and grow positive relationships and behavior, emotional self-regulation, and a sense of well-being.

Using the guiding principles from Peter Johnston’s best-selling professional resources, Choice Words and Opening Minds, Peter and six colleagues began a journey to create just such classrooms—environments in which children meaningfully engage with each other through reading, writing, making, and discussing books.
