Social Studies and Diversity Education - What We Do and Why We Do It (Hardcover): Elizabeth E Heilman, Ramona Fruja, Matthew... Social Studies and Diversity Education - What We Do and Why We Do It (Hardcover)
Elizabeth E Heilman, Ramona Fruja, Matthew Missias
R3,727 Discovery Miles 37 270 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The preparation of social studies teachers is crucial not only to the project of good education, but, even more broadly, to the cultivation of a healthy democracy and the growth of a nation's citizens. This one-of-a-kind resource features ideas from over 100 of the field's most thoughtful teacher educators reflecting on their best practices and offering specific strategies through which future teachers can learn to teach, thus illuminating the careful planning and deep thinking that go into the preparation of the social studies teachers. While concentrating on daily teaching realities such as lesson planning and meeting national, state, or provincial standards, each contributor also wrestles with the most important current issues on educating teachers for today's increasingly diverse, complex, and global society.

Features of this unique teaching resource include:

  • Volume sections that are arranged by both disciplinary organization and approach or activity.
  • Thoughtful introductory section essays that conceptualize each theme, providing a conscientious theoretical overview and analysis of each individual section.
  • Rich and concrete examples of best practice from some of the field's most diverse and highly regarded scholars and teacher educators
  • An index that identifies the appropriate teaching level and teacher education context and links the strategies and ideas that are presented in the essay to the relevant INTASC and NCSS standards for quick reference in classroom planning as well as institutional development and implementation.

A much-needed addition to the field, this comprehensive volume will be of value to any teacher interested in social studies or diversity education across age groups and educational contexts.

Reclaiming Education for Democracy - Thinking Beyond No Child Left Behind (Hardcover, New): Paul Shaker, Elizabeth E Heilman Reclaiming Education for Democracy - Thinking Beyond No Child Left Behind (Hardcover, New)
Paul Shaker, Elizabeth E Heilman
R3,696 Discovery Miles 36 960 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Reclaiming Education for Democracy subjects the prophets and doctrines of educational neoliberalism to scrutiny in order to provide a rationale and vision for public education beyond the limits of No Child Left Behind. The authors combine a history of recent education policy with an in- depth analysis of the origins of such policy and its impact on professional educators. The public face of these policies is separated from motives rooted in politics, profit, and ideology. The book also searches for new insights in understanding the neoliberal and managerialist assault on education by examining the psychology of advocates who demonstrate a special animus toward universal public education. The manipulation of public education by No Child Left Behind is a case study in the general approach to public institutions taken by the politicians and theorists in these camps. K-12 education has been subjected to deceptive descriptive analyses, marginalization of its professional leadership, manipulation of its goals, the imposition of illegitimate quality markers, a grab on its resources by corporate profiteers, and a demoralization of its rank and file. This book helps us think beyond this new commonsense of education. Recipient: 2009 AERA Division K Award for Exemplary Research in Teaching and Teacher Education

R706 R614 Discovery Miles 6 140 Save R92 (13%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Social Studies -- The Next Generation broadens the imagination within social studies education by highlighting current, cutting-edge scholarship incorporating critical discourses. Drawing on postmodern, poststructural, postcolonial, and feminist theories often borrowed from cultural studies, curriculum theory, critical geography, women's studies, and queer studies, the scholars contributing to this volume ask new questions about social studies, use different methodologies to study the field, and report findings with new forms of textualization. This book is dialogic and even conversational, ending with provocative responses from established social studies scholars and the editors and disturbs the given and the taken for granted in social studies research.
