The Teacher as Expert
The Teacher as Expert (January 1992)
A Theoretical and Historical Examination
Robert Welker - Author

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.

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.

Issues in English Education

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)

An Inquiry
Richard Wisniewski - Editor
Edward R. Ducharme - Editor

In The Professors of Teaching nine scholars pool their insights and their divergent experiences within the profession to discuss and elucid...(Read More)
