"I lettori di ossa" racconta lo scontro tra scienza e politica nel dibattito sulla preistoria australiana e di altri Paesi dove la presenza dei popoli indigeni rende profondamente politica l interpretazione del passato. Gli scienziati stanno ricostruendo la preistoria con l uso di tecnologie sempre piu avanzate mentre i popoli indigeni ne rivendicano la proprieta esclusiva. Questo rende sempre piu difficile lo studio delle ossa e dei reperti che gli aborigeni attribuiscono ai loro antenati ancestrali. Simultaneamente, altri studiosi, in genere di estrazione umanistica, sfidano la supremazia del metodo scientifica per ricostruire il passato. La situazione e complicata dalla rivalita tra gruppi di ricerca, universita e musei coinvolti in programmi sull evoluzione umana, finanziati in modo precario. "I lettori di ossa" presenta la scienza alla base delle nuove ricerche sull evoluzione umana, ma anche i protagonisti e la politica.

This book provides classroom examples to demonstrate how identity-making is integral to the teaching and learning process. Responding to school reform efforts that focus on top-down reform measures, this book proposes "identity work" as an alternative approach. The author argues that efforts to improve urban schools should recognize the importance of relational change that focuses on deepening personal interactions between students and teachers, teachers and other teachers, and schools and parents. Based on an in-depth study of two classrooms in urban K-8 schools, the book illuminates the importance of allowing teachers the freedom to make pedagogical adjustments based on their knowledge of students' needs, backgrounds, and interests. This volume reframes our understanding of urban schools and raises questions about the goals of local and federal reform and what is at stake for educational systems.
