Readings in Popular Culture, Pedagogy, and Critical Citizenship
James Schwoch - Author
Miriam White - Author
Susan Reilly - Author

"No existing work so deftly combines history and cultural analysis of the media age or embraces so wide a range of technologies." -- Cecelia Tichi, Vanderbilt University

"This volume gives critical substance to the idea that media knowledge is more than its seeming facticity, more than the insights brought to us by technologies that possess a privileged and transparent access to the real. Media literacy, as advocated by Schwoch, White, and R...(Read More)

Transforming Power
Transforming Power (January 1992)
Domination, Empowerment, and Education
Seth Kreisberg - Author

This book is about power -- power in the classroom, in our schools, and in our society. Schools, teachers, students, and teaching exist in a churning cauldron of interrelated institutions and social forces. Power relations in schools reflect these larger societal forces and the interconnections of our institutions.

This book is also about empowerment -- the empowerment of teachers and students. It explores the process through which people d...(Read More)
Framing Dropouts
Framing Dropouts (March 1991)
Notes on the Politics of an Urban High School
Michelle Fine - Author

"I think this is the most important work I have read in over a decade on the sociology and politics of school dropouts. Fine combines a narrative structure with a rigorous theoretical discourse that allows the reader to both hear the voices of those involved in the dropout situation as well as to have the opportunity to reflect critically on the ideological and material forces that structure the dropout issue as a social problem. I am convinced th...(Read More)
Curriculum as Social Psychoanalysis
Curriculum as Social Psychoanalysis (February 1991)
The Significance of Place
Joe L. Kincheloe - Editor
William F. Pinar - Editor

"I think this is one of the best books, one of the most original books, I have come across in a decade of reading and writing in the field of curriculum theory. It challenges the standard curriculum discourse's preoccupation with standardization, universalization, and objectivity." -- Henry A. Giroux, Miama University

"I enjoyed reading a book that said something concrete and that taught me something new. I was fascinated by both the thesis...(Read More)

Rejecting the apolitical...(Read More)

A Critical Study of Learning to Teach
Deborah P. Britzman - Author

Centering on the lived experiences of student teachers, this book sends out rays of surprising light towards the enterprise of teacher education today. Doing so, it transfigures what is often conceived of as a nesting of commonplaces.

"This book will make the life of the educator harder and more tonic; it will urge the reader to confront the contradictory and the tension. But it will also disclose the unexpected. Education will be viewe...(Read More)
Empowerment through Multicultural Education
Empowerment through Multicultural Education (November 1990)
Christine E. Sleeter - Editor

"This volume is a powerful indictment of our public educational system. U.S. teachers and policymakers can no longer ignore issues of race, class, gender, ethnicity, and handicap in their teaching. We can no longer afford as a nation to stick our heads in the sand and label these issues as someone else's--their--problem. Teacher educators and others centrally concerned with schooling must directly address issues raised in this book." -- Ma...(Read More)
Critical Pedagogy, the State, and Cultural Struggle
Critical Pedagogy, the State, and Cultural Struggle (July 1989)
Henry A. Giroux - Editor
Peter L. McLaren - Editor

Schools have been traditionally defined as institutions of instruction, but the authors of this volume challenge that position in order to generate a new set of cultural categories and constructs through which the nature and process of schooling can be more appropriately understood. Giroux and McLaren develop a theory of schooling that takes into account not only the more traditional relationship between teaching and learning, but also the import o...(Read More)
