              Educating Young Children in WPA Nursery Schools: Federally-Funded Early Childhood Education from 1933-1943 (Hardback)

              Educating Young Children in WPA Nursery Schools, the first full-length national study of the WPA nursery school program, helps to explain why universal preschool remains an elusive goal. This book argues that program success in operating nursery schools throughout the United Stat...es during the Great Depression was an important New Deal achievement. By highlighting the program's strengths-its ideals, its curriculum, and its community outreach-the author offers a blueprint for creating a universal preschool program that benefits both children and their families. This volume uncovers the forgotten perspective of WPA nursery school leaders and highlights the program's innovative curriculum for young children by incorporating both extensive archival research and neglected sources.

              Reconceptualizing Curriculum, Literacy, and Learning for School-Age Mothers offers a portrait of classroom literacy practices and learning opportunities that are provided for school-age mothers in two different schools. Through a series of case studies of school sites, teachers, ...and students, this book presents evidence of how these at-risk students use literacy in complex ways in the classroom and in their everyday lives. Attuned to the struggle for school-age mothers' access to meaningful and challenging curriculum in public schools, as well as to the relative dearth of scholarly research on the topic, this volume demonstrates how educators can rethink the issue of schooling for this population of students.

              As social contexts and demands change in the 21st century, pedagogies and policies must adapt to keep up. Increasing emphasis on global preparedness, competitivity, and holistic education alongside a fast-paced, ever-changing environment may make policy implementation difficult. ...However, Cheng asserts that it is only by understanding the current trends, vision, and issues in education policy, implementation and research that we can reflect, adapt, and improve future initiatives. To that end, Cheng elucidates the different paradigm shifts in classrooms and pedagogy all over the world. In his exploration of third wave paradigm shifts in education, he charts the rationales, concerns, and effects in topics such as contextualised multiple intelligences, integrated learning, national education in globalization, teacher effectiveness and development, school-based management, and systemic education reform. This book is a promising referential resource for any policy-maker, academic, and educator who knows that the only way to progress is to look and learn from the current issues and future trends globally.

              How can knowledge, developed in one context, be put to use in other contexts? How can students learn to do so? How can educators design for learning this? These are fundamental challenges to many forms of education. The challenges are amplified in contemporary society where peopl...e travers many different contexts and where contexts themselves are continuously changing. Designing for Situated Knowledge Transformation provides a structured answer to these questions, through investigation of the theoretical, empirical, methodological, and pedagogical design aspects which they involve. Raising profound questions about the nature of knowledge, of situativity, and of transfer, transformation and resituation, it calls for and provides extended empirical studies of the forms of transformation that knowledge undergoes when people find themselves in new contexts while relying on existing knowledge. Considering many avenues of practical application and insight, Designing for Situated Knowledge Transformation develops a coherent framework for developing learning designs for knowledge transformation that is crucial in today's educational settings.

              This book explores the complex nexus of discourses, principles and practices within which educators mobilise school-based health education. Through an interrogation of the ideas informing particular models and approaches to health education, the authors provide critical insights ...into the principles and practices underpinning approaches to health education policy, curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. Drawing on extensive literature and research, the book explores and considers what health education can and should do. Chapters examine the extent to which health education, past and present, has attended to the needs and interests of young people in school environments, as well as assess common pedagogical approaches and whether the outcomes tally with expectations. By considering the problems in teaching health education, curriculum making, health education pedagogies and porous classrooms, the book offers a knowledge base from which educators can consider how theories and models can sit together to shape curriculum and influence practice. School Health Education in Changing Times will be of key interest to postgraduate students, researchers and academics in the field of health education. It will also be a valuable resource for teacher educators, current teachers, and those on professional development courses who want to navigate the moral minefield surrounding health education.

              This volume presents a scholarly investigation of the ways educators engage in artistic and contemplative practices - and why this matters in education. Arts-based learning and inquiry can function as a powerful catalyst for change by allowing spiritual practices to be present wi...thin educational settings, but too often the relationship between art, education and spirituality is ignored. Exploring artistic disciplines such as dance, drama, visual art, music, and writing, and forms such as writing-witnessing, freestyle rap, queer performative autoethnograph, and poetic imagination, this book develops a transformational educational paradigm. Its unique integration of spirituality in and through the arts addresses the contemplative needs of learners and educators in diverse educational and community settings.

              Language is perhaps the most common issue that surfaces in debates over school reform, and plays a vital role in virtually everything we are involved. This edited volume explores linguistic apartheid, or the disappearance of certain languages through cultural genocide by dominant... European colonizers and American neoconservative groups. These groups have historically imposed hegemonic languages, such as English and French, on colonized people at the expense of the native languages of the latter. The book traces this form of apartheid from the colonial era to the English-only movement in the United States, and proposes alternative ways to counter linguistic apartheid that minority groups and students have faced in schools and society at large. Contributors to this volume provide a historical overview of the way many languages labeled as inferior, minority, or simply savage have been attacked and pushed to the margins, discriminating against and attempting to silence the voice of those who spoke and continue to speak these languages. Further, they demonstrate the way and the extent to which such actions have affected the cultural life, learning process, identity, and the subjective and material conditions of linguistically and historically marginalized groups, including students.

              Diverse Pedagogies of Place: Educating Students in and for Local and Global Environments

              Diverse Pedagogies of Place: Educating Students in and for Local and Global Environments (Paperback)

              Diverse Pedagogies of Place presents eight original place-responsive pedagogies that address a question of paramount importance in today's world: how do we educate the next generation of students to confront the challenges of global climate change and the on-going degradation of ...natural environments? Each place-responsive pedagogy is a result of innovative environmental educators' long-term engagement with particular places, and demonstrates that personal connectedness is crucial to effective environmental education. Professional learning and teacher collaboration is an important theme throughout the book, and the editors discuss how teachers could adapt the learning activities and teaching strategies found in the book in order to create their own place-responsive pedagogies. Each case study provides a rich account of how students can learn to be attentive and draws upon a common analytical framework derived from recent theorisation of place that highlights the centrality of stories-in-place, embodiment, and contestation. The authors present detailed and persuasive evidence that place-responsive pedagogies enable students to construct their own identities, as well as develop commitments and a deeper knowledge of the environments that surround them. A work of international relevance, Diverse Pedagogies of Place will appeal to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of environmental education and sustainability, place-based education, outdoor learning, professional learning and teacher development, as well as policymakers and environmental educators.
