Why critical pedagogy and popular education matter today By Joyce Canaan
Paperback: $7.69

Few today doubt that English Higher Education (HE), like the wider world in which it is located, is in crisis. This is, in part, an economic crisis, as the government response to the current... More > recession seems to be that of introducing the kind of neoliberal ‘shock doctrine’ (Klein 2007) or ‘shock therapy’ (Harvey 2005) that previously resulted in swingeing cuts in public services in Southern nations. Our aim in producing this volume is that these contributions help develop a collective response to the seeming limits of these conditions. We view the strength of these contributions in part as providing palpable evidence of how we and our colleagues are acting with critical hope under current conditions so that we might encourage others to work with us to build, together, more progressive formal and informal education systems that address and seek to redress multiple injustices of the world today.< Less

...This is the second in a series of tri-annual publications on transmedia largely written by students. The use of spectacle and performing narrative is at the core of tinkering with new forms... More > especially that of human/computer interaction and mobile telematics. What is going on between the two million year old hominid development and the current 'tools' of this ape? Do al of these gadgets and protocols help us live better? What are the new ways of telling old stories? To what extent do we bring national cultures and canons into a new, global mashup of forms, expressions, formats, and resonances that might touch deep into a collective subconscious. These essays were an outgrowth out of three classes in transmedia and performance at Stony Brook University. They take a less than technophilic approach to criticizing media. What remains is a very human need to experiment, change, evolve, use tools as a means and not as an ends, and pioneer toward types of human survival.< Less

The scripts identified... More > here include the Bureaucratic Script, the Corporate Script, the Student Script, the Parent and Public Script, and the Administrative Script. The authors bring their classroom teaching experiences (over thirty years combined) along with their research base to a discussion of literacy spanning elementary through high school. The discussion offers the reader practical and research-based lenses for identifying and overcoming the barriers to best practice while avoiding the inherent pitfalls found too often in our schools. The implied answer to the subtitle is a definitive "No," but the text goes beyond criticizing the current state of the field and seeks to empower both teachers and students seeking literacy growth beyond the scripts that plague twenty-first century commitments to accountability and testing.< Less

Glue Language is as critically important as the textbook for teaching a second language. The elements in Glue Language (“glue drops”) are the supportive filler words, phrases, and... More > sentences required to “glue” the main teaching topics together in target language during a textbook lesson. These glue drops are essential in an immersion class, exposing students to vital words, phrases, and sentences far before they are addressed in a textbook. Glue Language thus supplies the “missing link” in second language learning and teaching. Additionally, the students are also enabled to assume the teacher’s role in teaching the Glue Language. Moreover, the scope of Student-Centered Learning may further be extended into textbook learning. Thus, Glue Language is the enabling tool for creating an immersion environment and for developing a winning Student-Centered immersion curriculum.< Less
