This book presents a unique opportunity to read many original source materials written by authors representing diverse points of view and a broad spectrum of history in the field of education. It offers a personal philosophical perspective on the work of teaching; the function of schools in our society; and the relationships between education and productivity. Unlike most introductions to the profession, the issues raised in this book bring readers face-to-face with themselves and with the challenging dilemmas they will confront as teachers. It provides exceptional coverage of community and the changing social, cultural, linguistic, and ethnic landscape of our society and its impact on schools, children, and teaching. In addition, the book answers the following questions: What are the relationships between culture, society, and education?, What are the dynamics of daily life in schools as institutions in particular organizational and community contexts?, In what ways are gender, language, culture, race, social class, and the relationship between school and work important to education?, and What orientations and strategies can teachers adopt that will enable them to become more transformative educators? For individuals contemplating a career in teaching.

Working (With/out) the System

Educational Leadership, Micropolitics and Social Justice

This edited collection of chapters from invited scholars, explores issues of social justice and micropolitics in educational institutions. More specifically, it examines the ways in which social justice workers navigate, or can navigate, (micro) political systems in their quest to promote social justice. Issues of social justice and micropolitics are particularly important in this day and age as standardizing regimes and polarizing forces continue to erode the already perilous condition of the traditionally disadvantaged. While social justice workers make it a point to acknowledge the plight of the less fortunate, their wellmeaning attempts to take action are not always successful. This requires that they acknowledge the realities of the micropolitical environments in which they work, and to take action in these arenas if they are to achieve their social justice goals. The title of the book, Working (With/out) the System, draws attention to the ways in which social justice workers/leaders (teachers, administrators, students, community members) navigate educational institutions and the wider social systems that are not always hospitable to changes that promote social justice. This volume describes the prospects, possibilities and actual practice of working with, working without, and working outside of educational organizations to promote social justice. Among other topics, the chapters probe: the manner in which social justiceminded leaders navigate micropolitical environments the ways in which social justice minded leaders promote and sustain social justice action within systemic contexts the difficulties and successes that they experience.

Beyond the Comparative

We are pleased to introduce this inaugural volume in the PSCIE Series—Beyond the Comparative: Advancing Theory and Its Application to Practice—which expands on the life work of University of Pittsburgh Professor Rolland G. Paulston (1929-2006). Recognized as a stalwart in the field of comparative and international education, Paulston’s most widely recognized contribution is in social cartography. He demonstrated that mapping comparative, international, and development education (CIDE) is no easy task and, depending on the perspective of the mapper, there may be multiple cartographies to chart. The 35 contributors to this volume, representing a range of senior and junior scholars from various CIDE backgrounds and perspectives, celebrate the life and work of Paulston by addressing issues, perspectives and approaches related to charting the future course of the field. The volume reports on new research in several genres as well as conceptual analysis. As the title suggests, authors were encouraged to go “beyond” established canons of CIDE. The cover art, The CIDE Theoretical Compass, was conceptualized by the editors and depicts that theory selection and theory generation are an ongoing and important process in comparative, international, and development education (CIDE). The image was designed by artist Natalie Jacob, which positions the CIDE Theoretical Compass over Rolland G. Paulston’s 1993 concentric circle map.

Demokratie und Erziehung

Eine Einleitung in die philosophische Pädagogik

Author: John Dewey

Publisher: Beltz

ISBN: 9783407220578

Category: Education

Page: 517

View: 9729

Ein Schlüsselwerk der internationalen Reformpädagogik. Systematisch begründet der amerikanische Philosoph und Pädagoge Erziehung und Demokratie als Formen "gemeinsamer und miteinander geteilter Erfahrung". Die Schule als Modell für Demokratie wird zur Grundlage des Lehrens und Lernens in modernen Gesellschaften. "Demokratie und Erziehung", 1916 erstmals erschienen, gilt als das Hauptwerk John Deweys und als Schlüsselwerk der internationalen Reformpädagogik. Dewey entwickelt eine moderne Pädagogik aus der Idee, "Erziehung" als demokratische Erfahrung zu begründen, wie andererseits "Demokratie" als Medium der Erziehungserfahrung zu verstehen. Erziehung ist nicht Funktion oder Instrument der Politik, sondern sie verwirklicht sich als Demokratie. Die Schule wird zur "Keimzelle" der demokratischen Gesellschaft. Deweys Forderung nach einer Schule, die sich nicht als Ort gesellschaftlicher Reproduktion, sondern als Ort gesellschaftlicher Transformation versteht, sein Verständnis von Schule als Modell für Demokratie ist auch in der heutigen Erziehungswissenschaft noch aktuell. Den zweiten Teil seines Werkes bestimmen sehr konkrete Ausführungen zur Methodik und Didaktik der Schule als Lernumwelt, in deren Mittelpunkt er den Begriff des "Erfahrungslernens" stellt. Diese Ausgabe schließt mit einer umfangreichen, aktualisierten Auswahlbibliografie.

Farbenblind

Author: Trevor Noah

Publisher: Karl Blessing Verlag

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Trevor Noah kam 1984 im Township Soweto als Sohn einer Xhosa und eines Schweizers zur Welt. Zu einer Zeit, da das südafrikanische Apartheidsregime „gemischtrassige“ Beziehungen weiterhin unter Strafe stellte. Als Kind, das es nicht geben durfte, erlebte er Armut und systematischen Rassismus, aber auch die mutige Auflehnung seiner "farbenblinden" Eltern, die einfallsreich versuchten, Trennungen zwischen Ethnien und Geschlechtern zu überwinden. Heute ist er ein international gefeierter Comedian, der die legendäre "The Daily Show" in den USA leitet und weltweit – ob Sydney, Dubai, Toronto, San Francisco oder Berlin – in ausverkauften Sälen auftritt. In "Farbenblind" erzählt Trevor Noah ebenso feinsinnig wie komisch in achtzehn Geschichten von seinem Aufwachsen in Südafrika, das den ganzen Aberwitz der Apartheid bündelt: warum ihn seine Mutter aus einem fahrenden Minibus warf, um Gottes Willen zu erfüllen, welche Musik er für einen tanzenden Hitler aufzulegen pflegte, um sein erstes Geld zu verdienen, und wie ihn eine Überwachungskamera, die nicht einmal zwischen Schwarz und Weiß unterscheiden konnte, vor dem Gefängnis bewahrte.
