Emergent paradigms in the physical sciences are combined with
deconstructionist methods and Vygotsky's theory of speech and
thought to formulate new mind-sets for society and education, which
will promote nonlinear, nonpatriarchal, nonviolent,
anti-authoritarian worldviews on which to build stronger
individuals and societies. E. D. Hirsch and other establishment
education "reformers" are shown to be dangerously noncritical and
bound to old paradigms that advocate simple solutions to complex
problems. Gannaway contends that the nature of contemporary
American society is unique and must be creatively analyzed before
the educational system can be effectively reformed. She shows
teachers how to use familiar texts from popular culture to develop
habits of critical thinking that will protect students and citizens
from insidious mass media myths.
