To Be One of Us
To Be One of Us (March 1993)
Cultural Conflict, Creative Democracy, and Education
Nancy Bevin Warehime - Author

"Anyone who ventures to discuss the moral implications of a given subject matter such as education, is asking for trouble. Much safer, the 'wise' will tell us, to keep distanced from the subject matter, to be reportorial rather than involved, or to let others work on the 'implications.' Fortunately for her readers, Dr. Warehime rejects such advice. She is not only a map-maker but a participant in what is happening on the terrain she has pictured ...(Read More)

Social Reconstructionism and Critical Pedagogy in the Postmodern Era
William B. Stanley - Author

It illustrates many of the persistent issues, problems, and goals of radical educational reform, including the importance of developing a language of possibility, utopian thought, and the critical competence necessary to reveal and deconstruct forms of opp...(Read More)
The Teacher as Expert
The Teacher as Expert (January 1992)
A Theoretical and Historical Examination
Robert Welker - Author

"The question of expertise in teaching runs to the heart of what we have become as a society. Experts are everywhere. What this means and whether this is a good thing are matters that need to be debated. Welker tells us that technology is not enough, and suggests that in teaching, as elsewhere, we can never get by without human judgment and deliberation over values. Welker serves to remind us that even the advocates of specializations and techni...(Read More)
The Tact of Teaching
The Tact of Teaching (August 1991)
The Meaning of Pedagogical Thoughtfulness
Max van Manen - Author

This book is a welcome antidote to the preponderance of psychological texts that paint adult-child interactions as a series of discrete tasks and skills. While acknowledging the place of traditional skills approaches, van Manen openly, directly, and wholeheartedly addresses those dimensions of relationships that psychology cannot handle, primary among which is the elusive ability to be with children in a way that makes personal growth possible." --...(Read More)

Rebirth of Value
Rebirth of Value (February 1991)
Meditations on Beauty, Ecology, Religion, and Education
Frederick Turner - Author

"The best thing about this book is its living, stimulating power to arouse new thoughts about old issues. It has a tremendously broad sweep; from the Big Bang to the overcoming of Hamlet's Oedipus Complex and its significance for higher education and the future of the world. It is an audacious book --highly personal, a bit quirky, but full of vim and appeal. It offers what the author would call many 'brain rewards'." -- Frederick Ferre, Editor, <...(Read More)
