Re-Thinking Reason
Re-Thinking Reason (September 1994)
New Perspectives in Critical Thinking
Kerry S. Walters - Editor

For two decades, colleges and universities have regularly offered, and in some cases required, courses in thinking skills. Such courses generally have focused on training students in the basics of informal and formal logic, the assumption being that good thinking is logical thinking, and that instruction in critical or "good" thinking consequently should emphasize logical procedures. This "logistic" assumption is clearly reflected in both critical...(Read More)

Literacy, Ideology, and Dialogue (August 1994)
Towards a Dialogic Pedagogy
Irene Ward - Author

This is the first scholarly examination of the use of dialogic theory and pedagogy by scholars and teachers of writing.

Given the fact that the same kind of pedagogy is being prop...(Read More)

Dedicated to a transformation of education so that it becomes an instrument of liberation rather than oppression, Freire discusses in unprecedented depth the implications and consequences of his pedagogical theory concerning three main problems faced by contemporary higher education: power and education, curriculum and social reality, and the role of intellectuals.

Inquiry and Reflection
Inquiry and Reflection (April 1994)
Framing Narrative Practice in Education
Diane DuBose Brunner - Author

Inquiry and Reflection shows how stories of schooling can elucidate difficult, and unexamined problems facing teachers. While professional texts tend to raise issues of power and its distribution and questions of culture and ideology, often the manner of presentation is abstract, and pre-service teachers have difficulty making connections. Yet literary, film, and video materials illuminate problems and suggest ideas to which teachers can act...(Read More)

Curriculum for Utopia
Curriculum for Utopia (July 1992)
Social Reconstructionism and Critical Pedagogy in the Postmodern Era
William B. Stanley - Author

This book examines the relationship between contemporary forms of critical theory and social reconstructionism, as they relate and contribute to the construction of a radical theory of education. 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)
