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.

Culturally Responsive Pedagogy

Author: Dennisha Murff
Abstract: In Culturally Responsive Pedagogy: Promising Practices for African American Male Students, I take us on a journey into teachers' perceptions of the impact of implementing culturally responsive pedagogical (CRP) practices on the student learning outcomes of African American male students. The book also helps to identify teachers' perceptions of the CRP strategies needed in the elementary school setting to address the diverse needs of African American male students. I share the story of educators from a large, diverse elementary school in an urban school district, who have made it their mission to provide African American male students with culturally responsive learning environments where they can thrive. Throughout the book, I make it clear that the implementation of CRP practices has a direct impact on the student learning outcomes of African American male students.

Degrees of Difference: Reflections of Women of Color on Graduate School

Editor: Kimberly McKee
Editor: Denise Delgado
Abstract:

University commitments to diversity and inclusivity have yet to translate into support for women of color graduate students. Sexism, classism, homophobia, racial microaggressions, alienation, disillusionment, a lack of institutional and departmental support, limited help from family and partners, imposter syndrome, narrow reading lists—all remain commonplace. Indifference to the struggles of women of color in graduate school and widespread dismissal of their work further poison an atmosphere that suffocates not only ambition but a person's quality of life. In Degrees of Difference, women of color from diverse backgrounds give frank, unapologetic accounts of their battles—both internal and external—to navigate grad school and fulfill their ambitions. At the same time, the authors offer strategies for surviving the grind via stories of their own hard-won successes with self-care, building supportive communities, finding like-minded mentors, and resisting racism and unsupportive faculty and colleagues.

Editor: Gregory L. Samuels
Editor: Amy J. Samuels
Abstract: The contributors to this volume situate a variety of discussions within the context of the crossroads and explore how to negotiate, translate, and reconceptualize our own beliefs and positionings in ways that positively influence and empower students, teachers, teacher educators, and education policy makers.

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 Effective Special Educators: Building Bridges Across the Profession

Author: Alice Tesch Graham
Author: Gia Anselmo Renaud
Author: Martha McCann Rose
Abstract: In this readable, research-based guide, the authors outline a program of collaboration to enable novice teachers to gain insight from their more experienced colleagues. The book argues that “epistemic empathy” is a core attribute to develop in practitioners at all levels of experience in order to apply principles of special education practice in thoughtful and innovative ways. The authors show how to develop the dispositions and repertoire for successful teaching by building bridges across the profession. This dialogical approach is the foundation for sustained growth at all levels of practice, and for deepening the kinds of practical wisdom that comes with time.

Digital Divisions: How Schools Create Inequality in the Tech Era

Author: Matthew H. Rafalow
Abstract: Rafalow finds in his study of three California middle schools that students of all backgrounds use digital technology with sophistication and creativity, but only the teachers in the school serving predominantly White, affluent students help translate the digital skills students develop through their digital play into educational capital. Digital Divisions provides an in-depth look at how teachers operate as gatekeepers for students’ potential, reacting differently according to the race and class of their student body. As a result, Rafalow shows us that the digital divide is much more than a matter of access: it’s about how schools perceive the value of digital technology and then use them day-to-day.

Educação e tecnologias: Abordagens críticas

Author: Giselle Martins dos Santos Ferreira et al.
Abstract:

O e-Book bilíngue (Português/Inglês) Educação e Tecnologia: abordagens críticas (Education and Technology: critical approaches)congrega textos que questionam a hipotética neutralidade da tecnologia e promovem a desnaturalização de sua presença em contextos educacionais. Os capítulos que o compõem abordam questões de poder e consideram especificidades contextuais e históricas, escapando da usual euforia em torno das tecnologias digitais e da perspectiva “solucionista” que tende a obscurecer a diferença e a diversidade. Publicada em 2017, esta coletânea de 12 textos escritos por autores de diversos países, incluindo pesquisadores internacionalmente renomados, se mantém uma fonte relevante e atual para pesquisadores na área. Complementarmente aos textos, o livro inclui 24 imagens gentilmente cedidas pelo artista polonês Pawel Kuczynzki, conhecido por suas sutis, porém profundas, críticas a aspectos da contemporaneidade relacionados à expansão das tecnologias digitais.

Educações, culturas e hackers: Escritos e reflexões

Author: Nelson de Luca Pretto
Abstract:

Educações, Culturas e Hackers: escritos é reflexões é composto de duas partes, sendo que na primeira – Escritos – o autor faz um reflexão sobre a perspectiva plural que deve acompanhar a educação e a cultura, propondo, ao fim, a ideia de uma educação (ou educações) com um jeito hacker de ser. Para o autor, importante considerar que “os hackers são aqueles que fazem apaixonadamente e de forma aberta e colaborativa aquilo que gostam e, dessa, forma, é isso mesmo que deve ser um professor e a educação, sempre pensada na perspectiva plural.”

Na segunda parte – Reflexões -, estão organizados pequenos artigos publicados em jornais de Salvador e de fora da Bahia, em blogues e revistas eletrônicas, além de outros textos originais, escritos para o livro e, com isso, dão uma ideia de unidade no pensamento do líder do grupo de Pesquisa Educação, Comunicação e Tecnologias (GEC) da Faculdade de Educação da Universidade Federal da Bahia (UFBA).

Editor: Festus E. Obiakor
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.

Educational Inequality and School Finance: Why Money Matters for America’s Students

Author: Bruce D. Baker
Abstract: Baker explores school finance, the school and classroom resources derived from school funding, and how and why those resources matter. He provides a critical examination of popular assumptions that undergird the policy discourse around school funding—notably, that money doesn’t matter and that we are spending more and getting less—and shows how these misunderstandings contribute to our reluctance to increase investment in education at a time when the demands on our educational system are rising.

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.

Epistemologia da práxis na formação de professores - Perspectiva Crítico-emancipadora

Author: Kátia Augusta Curado Pinheiro Cordeiro da Silva
Abstract:

A proposta deste livro está vinculada a um estudo bibliográfico, que busca construir conhecimentos que contribuam para uma proposta de formação de professores da Educação Básica, pensada a partir da epistemologia da práxis. Essas questões surgiram para se (re)pensar a formação de professores cuja referência é a atividade humana expressa na práxis e no trabalho. Considera-se que o professor necessita, pela natureza do seu trabalho, vivenciar uma formação de natureza científica, artística, ética e técnica, de elevado nível, que impõe, portanto, suas atividades de prática e teoria. O intuito é construir o sentido da práxis como ação de conhecer e transformar, sustentada pelo conhecimento da realidade e reflexão, que fortalece o sentido histórico da ação educativa a favor da emancipação. Assim, o objetivo central da obra é fundamentar a formação de professores - inicial e continuada - com base nos pressupostos de uma educação crítico-emancipadora, em que se entende a realidade como pseudoconcreta, dialética e contraditória com vistas e possibilidades da emancipação humana tendo a escola como um dos espaços educativos para viabilizar tal processo.

Equity in Mathematics Education: Addressing a Changing World

Editor: Constantinos Xenofontos
Abstract: Following in the steps of the socio-political turn of the discipline, Equity in Mathematics Education: Addressing a Changing World emerged as a response of the editor and the chapter authors to the enormous changes that have in the last years occurred at a global level (for example, the ongoing war in Syria, the political [in]actions of powerful nations to fight climate change, the rise of far-right parties in many countries around the world, and so on). In recent years, massive migration waves from the Middle East have caused significant demographic changes to many European countries, Canada and the US, that are reflected in schools and classrooms. These observations have led this book's contributors to reconsider the concept and/or practice of equity, and its related concept, social justice, and the role of mathematics education research in addressing and promoting a fairer world. Contrary to other, perhaps highly specialized books concerned with similar topics, this book aims to provide a smooth, yet deep introduction to those who are new to this research area.

Estudos de Bebês e Diálogos com a Sociologia

Editor: Gabriela Guarnieri de Campos Tebet
Abstract: O livro Estudos de bebês e diálogos com a Sociologia, organizado pela Profa. Dra. Gabriela Tebet, docente credenciada no Programa de Pós-Graduação em Educação da Unicamp, reúne 33 capítulos de livros que abordam a temática sob diferentes perspectivas teóricas, metodológicas e do campo das experiências formativas, haja vista que os autores são docentes e pesquisadores vinculados a instituições brasileiras e de outros cinco diferentes países, além de estudantes de pós-graduação e de graduação da Unicamp e UFSCar. A obra foi submetida a Edital Público elaborado pelo Programa de Pós-Graduação em Educação da Unicamp (PPGE/Unicamp), sediado na Faculdade de Educação, e escolhida para sua publicação com financiamento parcial da verba PROAP/CAPES. Reúne textos de docentes do PPGE/Unicamp de três diferentes Linhas de Pesquisa: Educação e Ciências Sociais, Linguagem e Arte em Educação e Psicologia e Educação. E de três grupos de pesquisa da Faculdade de Educação. Expressa o trabalho desses colegas em redes de colaboração de pesquisa e formação com pesquisadores da Argentina, Escócia, França, Portugal e Reino Unido, bem como, no Brasil, com a UFPR, no Paraná; a UESC, na Bahia; a UNIFESP, da USP, e a UFSCar, em São Paulo; a UNIFAL, da UFLA, e da UFJF em Minas Gerais, e a UFF, no Rio de Janeiro. É um retrato em multiplicidades de um campo de estudos e pesquisas cujas densidades conceituais, dos processos de investigação acadêmica e dos percursos de formação na docência e na educação de forma mais ampliada, expandem significações já pensadas e que, muitas vezes, se enraízam em discursos e práticas que visibilizam a infância e os bebês como pontos de estabilidade, a fim de os analisar, interpretar e os figurar.  (Excerto da Apresentação, elaborada por Antônio Carlos Amorim - coordenador do PPGE - UNICAMP)

Ethical Decision-Making: Cases in Organization and Leadership

Editor: Patricia A. Mitchell
Abstract:

This text provides a unique collection of case studies across a wide range of organizations (higher education, K-12 education, military, state and local government administration, non-profit institutions, and agency management, etc.). These cases examine ethical decision-making and organizational and leadership behavioral concepts that are practiced in these organizations. The cases cover topics facing our workforce today and ask the reader to solve the dilemma. Through a discussion of these cases, students apply decision making and organizational and leadership strategies to analyze each case and therefore gain a better understanding of how to effectively lead and manage within their organizations. This text challenges students to think critically and analytically. Students are encouraged to reflect on options a practitioner could use to solve the problem. All of the cases end with an open scenario and a set of questions, allowing students to offer a wide range of opinions and participate in reflective and robust discussions.

Exploring the Mathematical Education of Teachers Using TEDS-M Data

Editor: Maria Teresa Tatto
Editor: Michael Rodriguez
Editor: Wendy Smith
Editor: Mark Reckase
Editor: Kiril Bankov
Abstract:

This book uses the publicly available TEDS-M data to answer such questions as: How does teacher education contribute to the learning outcomes of future teachers? Are there programs that are more successful than others in helping teachers learn to teach mathematics? How does the local and national policy environment contribute to teacher education outcomes? It invites readers to explore these questions across a large number of international settings.  The importance of preparing future mathematics teachers has become a priority across many nations. Across the globe nations have allocated resources and expertise to this endeavour. Yet in spite of the importance accorded to teacher education not much is known about different approaches to preparing knowledgeable teachers and whether these approaches do in fact achieve their purpose. The Mathematics Teacher Education and Development Study (TEDS-M) is the first, and to date the only, cross-national study using scientific and representative samples to provide empirical data on the knowledge that future mathematics teachers of primary and secondary school acquire in their teacher education programs.  The study addresses the central importance of teacher knowledge in learning to teach mathematics by examining variation in the nature and influence of teacher education programs within and across countries.

Factories for Learning: Making Race, Class and Inequality in the Neoliberal Academy

Author: Christy Kulz
Abstract: Over half of England's secondary schools are now academies. While their impact on achievement has been debated, the social and cultural outcomes prompted by this neoliberal educational model has received less scrutiny. This book draws on original research based at Dreamfields Academy, a celebrated flagship secondary school in a large English city, to show how the accelerated marketization and centralization of education is reproducing raced, classed and gendered inequalities. The book also examines the complex stories underlying Dreamfields' glossy veneer of success and shows how students, teachers and parents navigate the everyday demands of Dreamfields' results-driven conveyor belt. Hopes and dreams are effectively harnessed and mobilized to enact insidious forms of social control, as education develops new sites and discourses of surveillance.

Foundations, Research, and Assessment of Fraternities and Sororities: Retrospective and Future Considerations

Editor: Pietro Sasso
Editor: J. Patrick Biddix
Editor: Mónica Lee Miranda
Abstract:

Foundations, Research, and Assessment of Fraternities and Sororities is inspired by continuing conversations about the enduring challenges facing fraternities and sororities on campuses across the country. The co-editors curate contributions from scholars and noteworthy practitioners from across higher education to examine a variety of issues relating to the past and future construct of these institutions. The text begins with a historical section that provides a perspective on the origins of fraternities and sororities. Other sections look at such critical areas as values, legal issues, and research. Values are described regarding the values congruence movement and acknowledging emerging areas of the individual fraternity and sorority experience. Legal issues include freedom of speech, hazing law, and risk management. Additional profiles of large, national benchmark surveys are included, and the book concludes with a final overview of the state of fraternity/sorority scholarship. This volume will appeal to a broad readership made up of faculty, administrations and alumni/ae.
