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.

Evaluation without Tears: 101 Ways to Evaluate the Work of Students

Author: Selma Wasserman
Abstract: Evaluation Without Tears provides teachers with specific examples of how they might provide evaluative feedback to students that is enabling and affirming, rather than punishing, respectful of the learner and protective of the learner’s dignity, recognizing that one person’s judgment is not truth.

Exploring Cultural Competence in Professional Development Schools

Editor: JoAnne Ferrara
Editor: Janice L. Nath
Editor: Ronald S. Beebe
Abstract: This book examines the ways in which PDSs build cultural competence for various stakeholders including pre-service teachers, classroom teachers, school leaders, college faculty, and K-12 students. Given the increased national attention on the opportunity gap present in underserved marginalized communities across the country, the authors in this series identify a combination of research-based practices and institutional changes that increase student attainment and develop educators’ capacity to serve a range of diverse learners. We are certain the timeliness of the topic will provide educators with context for understanding the role PDSs play in the creation of culturally responsive schools.

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.

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.

Four Chinese ELLs: Their School Experiences and Journeys in Pursuing the American Dream

Author: Nan Li
Author: Michael Meng
Abstract: Traditionally, Chinese students are perceived as the model minority in American schools who are academically successful. Yet, this book provides a new perspective by documenting the life journey and school experiences of the four Chinese ELLs. The book gives a detailed account of the four ELLs in transition from Chinese language and culture into American school and culture. Interview, observation, and documentary data at their homes and American school reflect this transitional journey. The book helps K-12 teachers and educators understand that Chinese students also come from different family backgrounds and have different previous schooling experiences. This will help teachers and educators better working with Chinese and all ELLs who adapt the new school environment.

Good Reception: Teens, Teachers, and Mobile Media in a Los Angeles High School

Author: Antero Garcia
Abstract:

Schools and school districts have one approach to innovation: buy more technology. In Good Reception, Antero Garcia describes what happens when educators build on the ways students already use technology outside of school to help them learn in the classroom. As a teacher in a public high school in South Central Los Angeles, Garcia watched his students' nearly universal adoption of mobile devices. Whether recent immigrants from Central America or teens who had spent their entire lives in Los Angeles, the majority of his students relied on mobile devices to connect with family and friends and to keep up with complex social networks. Garcia determined to discover how these devices and student predilection for gameplay, combined with an evolving "culture of participation," could be used in the classroom. Garcia charts a year in the life of his ninth-grade English class, first surveying mobile media use on campus and then documenting a year-long experiment in creating a "wireless critical pedagogy" by incorporating mobile media and games in classroom work. A year in the life of a ninth-grade English class shows how participatory culture and mobile devices can transform learning in schools.

Helping Parents Understand Schools: A Different Perspective on Education and Schooling in America

Author: Lyndon G. Furst
Abstract: There is a great deal of misunderstanding about how schools in America function and what goes on in the typical classroom. Parents, even relatively young parents, perceive that public schools are just like when they attended. This faulty perception is held by a large portion of the general public. In addition a number of aspects of schooling have come under close scrutiny by critics of the public schools, resulting in a heated debate throughout the nation. It is the purpose of this book to provide parents and others who are interested in the operation of public schools an alternative way of looking at publically supported education and the issues surrounding better educational practice. The framework for this volume is the published articles of the author over the past 20 years in his weekly newspaper column, A Different Perspective. While no attempt is made to be comprehensive, the 13 chapters cover a broad range of issues facing the schools. The reader is treated to a fascinating look at the viewpoint of an experienced observer of these public institutions. The author has changed his perspective over the two decades on only a few issues. The book was written with the average reader in mind. It does not contain a large amount of educational jargon, although the issues are approached with enough depth to be useful to the professional educator. Throughout the entire volume the author maintains strong support for public schools.

Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) in Practice: Defining "Servingness" at HSIs

Editor: Gina Ann Garcia
Abstract: This edited book, Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) in Practice: Defining “Servingness” at HSIs, fills an important gap in the literature. It features the stories of faculty, staff, and administrators who are defining “servingness” in practice at HSIs. Servingness is conceptualized as the ability of HSIs to enroll and educate Latinx students through a culturally enhancing approach that centers Latinx ways of knowing and being, with the goal of providing transformative experiences that lead to both academic and non-academic outcomes. In this book, practitioners tell their stories of success in defining servingness at HSIs. Specifically, they provide empirical and practical evidence of the results and outcomes of federally funded HSI grants, including those funded by Department of Education Title III and V grants.

How Schools Really Matter: Why Our Assumption about Schools and Inequality Is Mostly Wrong

Author: Douglas B. Downey
Abstract: Most of us assume that public schools in America are unequal—that the quality of the education varies with the location of the school and that as a result, children learn more in the schools that serve mostly rich, white kids than in the schools serving mostly poor, black kids. But it turns out that this common assumption is misplaced. As Douglas B. Downey shows in How Schools Really Matter, achievement gaps have very little to do with what goes on in our schools. Not only do schools not exacerbate inequality in skills, they actually help to level the playing field. The real sources of achievement gaps are elsewhere.

How to End the Reading War and Serve the Literacy Needs of All Students: A Primer for Parents, Policy Makers, and People Who Care

Author: P.L. Thomas
Abstract: The twenty-first century Reading War is, in fact, nothing new, but some of the details are unique to our current culture driven by social media. This volume seeks to examine the current Reading War in the context of the historical recurrence of public and political debates around student reading abilities and achievement. Grounded in a media fascination with the “science of reading” and fueled by a rise in advocates for students with dyslexia, the current Reading War has resulted in some deeply troubling reading policy, grade retention and intensive phonics programs. This primer for parents, policy makers, and people who care confronts some of the most compelling but misunderstood aspects of teaching reading in the U.S. while also offering a way toward ending the Reading War in order to serve all students, regardless of their needs.

Ideating Pedagogy in Troubled Times: Approaches to Identity, Theory, Teaching and Research

Editor: Shalin Lena Raye
Editor: Stephanie Masta
Editor: Sarah Taylor Cook
Editor: Jake Burdick
Abstract: The chapters, reflections, and poems within this volume, thus, effect a collective ideation on how specific cultural politics and deleterious ideological formations – racism, colonialism, homophobia, ableism, to name only a few – persist and mobilize. The authors seek to expose and name some of these injustices, asking readers not only see and hear these experiences, but to inhabit our complicities in their promulgation. It is important to acknowledge that these named social troubles do not exist in isolation, and will enmesh, weave, wind, and entangle with one another. The section headings parallel Ahmed’s (2013) own ideations: testimony, recognition, and wounds, not as a formula to follow as an activist call, or as a model for a means to a more just end, but as a way to engage in these issues as a trope of activist confrontation of readers who are, as many of our authors suggest, complicit in maintaining many of these social troubles.

Igualdade e diferenças nas políticas educacionais: A agenda das diversidades nos governos Lula e Dilma

Author: Denise Carreira
Abstract:

O livro aborda as chamadas políticas de diversidade na educação brasileira desenvolvidas pelos governos dos Presidentes Lula e Dilma entre 2004 e 2014. Em especial, a obra trata das provocações e dos tensionamentos gerados pelas agendas das diversidades para o desenho, funcionamento e institucionalidade das políticas educacionais e sua influência nas concepções de qualidade educacional em disputa nas políticas federais. Essas disputas estiveram presentes nas políticas implementadas pelo Ministério da Educação, nas Conferências Nacionais de Educação e no processo conflitivo de tramitação do novo Plano Nacional de Educação (Lei Federal n. 13.005/2014), analisados neste trabalho.

Com base nas vozes de gestores/as públicos/as e ativistas da sociedade civil, na análise documental e da execução orçamentária e na experiência política da pesquisadora, é apresentado um balanço sobre os dez anos de existência da Secretaria de Educação Continuada, Alfabetização e Diversidade (Secad), órgão do Ministério da Educação criado no primeiro governo Lula, em resposta à demanda de movimentos sociais, e extinto em 2019, no primeiro mês do governo Bolsonaro.

Improving School Board Effectiveness: A Balanced Governance Approach

Editor: Thomas L. Alsbury
Editor: Phil Gore
Abstract: Improving School Board Effectiveness offers a clarifying and essential look at the evolving role of school boards and how they contribute to efforts to improve student learning. It examines how board members can establish effective district priorities, and it explores those board policies and actions that result in shared, districtwide commitments to heightened student achievement.

This book arises out of a critical need for a better understanding of school boards and the development of helpful tools and guidelines for school board members. At its heart is the notion of Balanced Governance, a principle that most generally “balances the authority of a superintendent to lead a school district with the necessary oversight of a locally engaged and knowledgeable board.”

Abstract: Inclusive Education: A Systematic Perspective explores the theoretical implications of inclusive practice as well as illustrative case studies and evaluation findings from states, educator preparation programs, districts, and schools that have reframed their work around the principles of inclusive practice. Whether these organizations position the work as "social justice education," "culturally responsive teaching," or "inclusion," their efforts lead in the same direction--toward higher quality and more equitable education for all. The chapters will be relevant to graduate students, faculty members, and education leaders, at all levels, who seek a comprehensive overview of the commitment and practice of "inclusive education".

Indian Education for All: Decolonizing Indigenous Education in Public Schools

Author: John P Hopkins
Abstract: In his new book, John P. Hopkins examines recent efforts to reform Indigenous education in public schools. Hopkins centers his critique on Montana State’s innovative and bold multicultural education policy called Indian Education for All (IEFA), and demonstrates why Indigenous education reforms must decolonize the curriculum and pedagogy to address the academic inequalities facing Native students. Using tribal critical race theory and culturally sustaining and revitalizing pedagogy, Indian Education for All proposes a shift in the ways teacher candidates learn about Indigenous education and instruct Native students. It explains why teachers and schools need to privilege Indigenous knowledge and explicitly integrate decolonization concepts into teaching and learning to address the academic gaps in Native education. This book will also help non-Native educators engage in productive and authentic conversations with tribal communities about what Indigenous education reform should entail.
