Students of Color and the Achievement Gap - Systemic Challenges, Systemic Transformations (Hardcover): Richard R. Valencia Students of Color and the Achievement Gap - Systemic Challenges, Systemic Transformations (Hardcover)
Richard R. Valencia
R3,218 Discovery Miles 32 180 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Students of Color and the Achievement Gap is a comprehensive, landmark analysis of an incontrovertible racialized reality in U.S. K-12 public education---the relentless achievement gap between low-socioeconomic students of color and their economically advantaged White counterparts. Award winning author and scholar Richard Valencia provides an authoritative and systemic treatment of the achievement gap, focusing on Black and Latino/Latina students. He examines the societal and educational factors that help to create and maintain the achievement gap by drawing from critical race theory, an asset-based perspective and a systemic inequality approach. By showing how racialized opportunity structures in society and schools ultimately result in racialized patterns of academic achievement in schools, Valencia shows how the various indicators of the achievement gap are actually symptoms of the societal and school quality gaps. Following each of these concerns, Valencia provides a number of reform suggestions that can lead to systemic transformations of K-12 education. Students of Color and the Achievement Gap makes a persuasive and well documented case that school success for students of color, and the empowerment of their parents, can only be fully understood and realized when contextualized within broader political, economic, and cultural frameworks.

Figuration Work - Student Participation, Democracy and University Reform in a Global Knowledge Economy (Hardcover): Gritt B.... Figuration Work - Student Participation, Democracy and University Reform in a Global Knowledge Economy (Hardcover)
Gritt B. Nielsen
R2,566 Discovery Miles 25 660 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

What role should students take in shaping their education, their university, and the wider society? These questions have assumed new importance in recent years as universities are reformed to become more competitive in the "global knowledge economy." With Denmark as the prism, this book shows how negotiations over student participation - influenced by demands for efficiency, flexibility, and student-centered education - reflect broader concerns about democracy and citizen participation in increasingly neoliberalised states. Combining anthropological and historical research, Gritt B. Nielsen develops a novel approach to the study of policy processes and opens a timely discussion about the kinds of future citizens who will emerge from current reforms.

Education Abroad - Learning Environments in a Global Context (Paperback): Erin A. Mikulec, Samantha Potempa, Kara Pike Inman Education Abroad - Learning Environments in a Global Context (Paperback)
Erin A. Mikulec, Samantha Potempa, Kara Pike Inman
R1,151 Discovery Miles 11 510 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Education abroad is an essential part of the university student experience. Initiatives such as IIE's Generation Study Abroad encourage more U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to study abroad. According to the Open Doors 2019 Report by the Institute for International Education (IIE), 341,751 students participated in post-secondary education abroad programs during the 2017/2018 academic year. This figure represents an increase of 2.7% of U.S. students studying abroad from the previous year. Research shows that education abroad provides students with opportunities not only to see the world but also to develop intercultural competence, which is increasingly crucial in the 21st century workplace. There are also numerous studies that show gains in autonomy, confidence, and tolerance for ambiguity in students who complete some type of study abroad experience. In sum, the education abroad experience in itself represents a powerful learning environment that continues to support personal and professional development long after returning home. Nonetheless, these learning environments must be cultivated along with faculty who develop and lead programs, as well as university partners and providers. Furthermore, education abroad programming and assessment is complex and must take into consideration many factors including academic goals, purposeful curricular development, and a balance between academics and leisure activities on site. This book explores the many aspects of education abroad as a learning environment, such as student learning outcomes, faculty development, and program assessment and evaluation. In addition, several chapters present education abroad experiences as a model for community engagement and activism. The authors represent a diverse range of institutions and perspectives and discuss programs around the globe. The book represents the voices of faculty that lead education abroad programs, students who participate in them, and also those of international students on a U.S. campus reflecting on their personal experiences abroad. Furthermore, this book contributes to the discussion of best practices to assist faculty and program directors in creating robust education abroad programs that meet the needs of their students and institutions.

Elizabeth M Lee, Chaise Ladousa
R3,202 Discovery Miles 32 020 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

As scholars and administrators have sharpened their focus on higher education beyond trends in access and graduation rates for underrepresented college students, there are growing calls for understanding the experiential dimensions of college life. This contributed book explores what actually happens on campus as students from an increasingly wide range of backgrounds enroll and share space. Chapter authors investigate how students of differing socioeconomic backgrounds, genders, and racial/ethnic groups navigate academic institutions alongside each other. Rather than treat diversity as mere difference, this volume provides dynamic analyses of how students come to experience both power and marginality in their campus lives. Each chapter comprises an empirical qualitative study from scholars engaged in cutting-edge research about campus life. This exciting book provides administrators and faculty new ways to think about students' vulnerabilities and strengths.

Student Lives in Crisis - Deepening Inequality in Times of Austerity (Paperback): Lorenza Antonucci Student Lives in Crisis - Deepening Inequality in Times of Austerity (Paperback)
Lorenza Antonucci
R509 Discovery Miles 5 090 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In the greatest social change of the last twenty years about half of Europe's young people now attend university. Their lived experiences are however largely undocumented. Antonucci travelled across six cities and three European countries - England, Italy and Sweden - to provide the first ever comparison of the lives of university students across countries and socio-economic backgrounds. Contrasting students' resources and backgrounds, this original work exposes the profound social effects of austerity and the financial crisis on young people. Questionnaires and first person interviews reveal that, in contrast with what assumed by HE policies, participating in university exacerbates inequalities among young people. This work is a wake-up call for re-thinking the role of higher education in relation to social justice in European societies.

Teacher as Traveler - Enhancing the Intercultural Development of Teachers and Students (Paperback, 2nd Edition): Kenneth Cushner Teacher as Traveler - Enhancing the Intercultural Development of Teachers and Students (Paperback, 2nd Edition)
Kenneth Cushner; Contributions by Martha Lash, Justine Defrancesco
R658 Discovery Miles 6 580 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The essence of this second edition, under the revised title Teacher as Traveler: Enhancing the Intercultural Development of Teachers and Students, is to examine the development of intercultural competence through various dimensions of student travel, study abroad and intercultural encounters. Cushner, who has traveled with students and teachers to all seven continents for more than 40 years, uses his firsthand experiences as the foundation to introduce essential concepts related to cross-cultural communication and intercultural interaction and to point out strategies educators can employ to enhance intercultural learning. This second edition reflects the considerable research that has occurred in recent years that has helped us better understand the impact and design of international travel experiences that have the potential to enhance intercultural development. In addition to updated research, the chapters examine new study abroad initiatives while looking closely at the critical role that guided teacher-led experience plays in facilitating intercultural growth and development.

Fawzia Reza
R1,747 Discovery Miles 17 470 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This book examines the challenges that Pakistani-American families have faced in their attempts to assimilate within the U.S. school culture since the September eleventh terrorist attack. Negative stereotyping has permeated into schools, and affected Pakistani-American students and their families. Reza examines this phenomenon from a parental lens in order to describe how 9/11 has altered the involvement of Pakistani-American parents in their children's schools, and whether or not schools are appropriately addressing these issues and concerns. Reza connects formal initiatives taken by U.S. schools to promote greater integration while encouraging multiculturalism, and relays the experiences of Pakistani-American parents to provide readers with a unique perspective on the challenges that this population faces in assimilating within the U.S. school culture. Recommendations are offered to policymakers and educators on how to promote greater Pakistani-American parental involvement in U.S. schools.

A Revolutionary Subject: Pedagogy of Women of Color and Indigeneity is a call to radical educators, grassroots organizers, and others on the left to recognize the enormous historical legacy of and potential for revolutionary praxis that exists among Women of Color and Indigeneity. This book revitalizes Marx's dialectics to challenge class-reductionism, highlighting a class struggle that is also necessarily anti-racist, anti-sexist, and against all forms of oppression.

As students begin finalizing college and career decisions, they are faced with tough choices that impact the next 2 to 42 years of their lives. While career decisions can be challenging for anyone, they seem more difficult for students who are considering careers in music. Although there are many viable music career options, there is considerable uncertainty regarding the types of jobs available, and the skills and other traits that help student musicians determine if they will be a good fit in their chosen careers. As a result, music students commonly feel lost regarding music career decisions, turning to parents and teachers who feel just as ill-equipped to provide insight. Music Career Advising: A Guide for Parents Students and Teachers answers the most common music career questions through research-based career advising strategies, a comprehensive inventory of music careers, bibliography of print and on-line music career resources, and additional information gathered through interviews with leading musicians in the field, and faculty members in some of the most prestigious university music programs in the country.

This book focuses on the struggle by Latin Americans to open and maintain Chicano/a Studies programs in institutions of higher education in California. It raises critical questions for social theory about multicultural democracy, dealing with topics such as immigration, affirmative action and civil rights. Mora explains the links between this social movement and the needs of the Chicano/a people, the changes taking place in higher education, and the trends in the overall ethnic-nationalist movements in the U.S. where Latinos have been playing an increasingly leading role.

In turn, teachers, counselors, and school leaders have deep concerns about the impact of immigration law on their students' lives both within and outside of school.

Emery Petchauer
R936 Discovery Miles 9 360 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

College campuses have become rich sites of hip-hop culture and knowledge production. Despite the attention that campus personnel and researchers have paid to student life, the field of higher education has often misunderstood the ways that hip-hop culture exists in college students lives. Based upon in-depth interviews, observations of underground hip-hop spaces, and the author 's own active roles in hop-hop communities, this book provides a rich portrait of how college students who create hip-hop both male and female, and of multiple ethnicities embody its principles and aesthetics on campuses across the United States. The book looks beyond rap music, school curricula, and urban adolescents to make the empirical argument that hip-hop has a deep cultural logic, habits of mind, and worldview components that students apply to teaching, learning, and living on campus.

Hip-Hop Culture in College Students Lives provides critical insights for researchers and campus personnel working with college students, while pushing cultural observers to rethink the basic ways that people live hip-hop.
