DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Ever since its first edition, education professors have relied on the Sadkers for their comprehensive coverage of all aspects of American education. Teachers, Schools, and Society provides in-depth coverage of the foundations of education (history, philosophy, governance, and law) while also presenting a clear overview of what it means to be a teacher today, and including commentary on current critical topics. Most importantly, a multicultural/diversity-oriented approach is taken in every chapter to provide the most integrated and thorough coverage of diversity in any introduction to education textbook.Written in an informal and highly engaging style that appeals to students, Teachers, Schools, and Society is punctuated throughout with interesting features. The pedagogical system is expanded and refined in the sixth edition to provide extensive student support. New to the text is an interactive element that integrates reflection into all features and that links students to the Online Learning Center to perform interactive activities and to find additional resources.Combine comprehensive coverage; an engaging, interactive pedagogical system; and unsurpassable integrated coverage of diversity with an excellent author team, detailed appendices, and a complete supplements package, and you have an extraordinary resource for introductory coverage of American education.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Many teachers, schools, parents and community organisations feel that ‘standards’ education is not serving us well. It has proved ineffective at preparing many students for work, higher education and general wellbeing, nor does it keep students engaged and intrinsically motivated, capable of sustaining interest in education and learning. There is a supressed desire to transform educational outcomes, and enquiry based learning (EBL) and project based learning (PBL) are the prime candidates for achieving such a goal. EBL is education that is driven by curiosity, questions and problem solving, with the capacity to produce results that are equal to or better than standard outcomes. This new text provides a critical examination of EBL and PBL by exploring a wide range of international exemplars and considering the benefits, barriers and contradictions generated by the efforts of teachers and schools. Focusing on analytical frameworks and socio-cultural theory, areas covered include: enquiry and society what EPBL is learning through enquiry challenges for schools and teachers student outcomes and assessment teacher learning curriculum development. Enquiry and Project Based Learning offers analytical frameworks and practical guidance for students, teachers and all those interested in enquiry based learning, as well as presenting a balanced, purposeful and motivating alternative to mainstream educational practice.

In addition to a substantial introduction in which Philip W. Jackson explains why more of Dewey's ideas haven't been put into practice, this edition restores a "lost" chapter, dropped from the book by Dewey in 1915.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Drawing on current scholarship, Education and Society takes students on a journey through the many roles that education plays in contemporary societies. Addressing students’ own experience of education before expanding to larger sociological conversations, Education and Society helps readers understand and engage with such topics as peer groups, gender and identity, social class, the racialization of achievement, the treatment of immigrant children, special education, school choice, accountability, discipline, global perspectives, and schooling as a social institution. The book prompts students to evaluate how schools organize our society and how society organizes our schools. Moving from students to schooling to social forces, Education and Society provides a lively and engaging introduction to theory and research and will serve as a cornerstone for courses such as sociology of education, foundations of education, critical issues in education, and school and society.

Available:
Author: Paulo Freire
Pages: 176
ISBN: 0241301114
Release: 2017-04-06
Editor: Penguin Classics

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This text argues that the perceived passivity of the poor is the direct result of economic, social and political domination. The book suggests that in some countries the oppressors use the 'piggy bank' system - treating students as passive, empty vessels - to preserve their authority and maintain a culture of silence. Through cooperation and dialogue, Freire suggests, the authoritarian teacher-pupil model can be replaced with critical thinking so that the student becomes co-creator of knowledge. Crucial to Freire's argument is the belief that every human being, no matter how impoverished or illiterate, can develop an awareness of self, and the right to be heard.
