Contemporary Perspectives on Research in Motivation in Early Childhood Education

Editor: Olivia N. Saracho
Abstract: Researchers from different disciplines (e.g., physiological, psychological, philosophical) have investigated motivation using multiple approaches. For example, in physiology (the scientific study of the normal function in living systems such as biology), researchers may use “electrical and chemical stimulation of the brain, the recording of electrical brain-wave activity with the electroencephalograph, and lesion techniques, where a portion of the brain (usually of a laboratory animal) is destroyed and subsequent changes in motivation are noted” (Petri & Cofer, 2017). Physiological studies mainly conducted with animals, other than humans, have revealed the significance of particular brain structures in the control of fundamental motives such as hunger, thirst, sex, aggression, and fear. In psychology, researchers may study the individuals’ behaviors to understand their actions. In sociology, researchers may examine how individuals’ interactions influence their behavior.

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.

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 Issues in Democratic Schooling: Curriculum, Teaching, and Socio-Political Realities

Author: Kenneth Teitelbaum
Abstract: Focusing on a wide range of critical issues, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the linkage of different educational ideas, policies, and practices to a commitment for democratic schooling. Informed by significant, interdisciplinary research, as well as by his own extensive professional experiences as a teacher, professor, department chair, and dean, Teitelbaum examines contemporary concerns related to three broad areas: 1) teaching and teacher education; 2) curriculum studies; and 3) multiculturalism and social justice. His approach is to integrate the current and the historical, the practical and the theoretical, the technical and the socio-political, and the personal and the structural. With this volume, Teitelbaum considers how schools should be organized and funded, what they should teach and to whom, the role that teachers, students, and parents should play in school life, and the need and prospects for schools and teacher education programs that foster meaningful learning, critical reflection, and social justice.

Critical Perspectives on Education Policy and Schools, Families, and Communities

Editor: Sue Winton
Editor: Gillian Parekh
Abstract: Critical Perspectives on Education Policy and Schools, Families, and Communities offers scholars, students, and practitioners important new knowledge about how current policies impact families, schools, and community partnerships. The book’s authors share a critical orientation towards policy and policy research and invite readers to think differently about what policy is, who policymakers are, and what policy can achieve. Their chapters discuss findings from research grounded in diverse theories, including institutional ethnography, critical disability theory, and critical race theory. The authors encourage scholars of family, school, and community partnerships to ask who benefits from policies (and who loses) and how proposed reforms maintain or disrupt existing relations of power. The chapters present original research on a broad range of policies at the local, state/provincial, and national levels in Canada and the USA.

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.

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.

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).

Educating Young Children With and Without Exceptionalities: New Perspectives

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.

Education in Revolutionary Struggles: Iván Illich, Paulo Freire, Ernesto Guevara and Latin American Thought

Author: Andrés Donoso Romo
Abstract: Education in Revolutionary Struggles introduces us to the fascinating world of Latin American educational thought in the third quarter of the 20th century. It discusses the contributions of three of the most distinguished intellectuals of the period – Iván Illich, Paulo Freire and Ernesto Guevara – and more specifically their answers to the eternal challenge: What is – or should be – the role of education in the profound structural and/or revolutionary transformation of our societies? The first part of the book identifies the cultural, economic and political context of the revolutionary years in Latin America. This historical framework is of particular interest because it is the setting for the intellectual and educational debates in which these three thinkers took part. The second part, the heart of the book, expounds in depth how Iván Illich, Paulo Freire and Ernesto Guevara contributed to understanding of how education is linked to the transformation of society. The third and final part highlights the most fertile dimensions of the educational thought of Iván Illich, Paulo Freire and Ernesto Guevara – deschooling, liberation education and revolutionary education respectively – and analyses the points where their conceptions of "education in revolutionary struggles" converged, complemented one another or diverged.

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.
