Critical Issues in Education: An Anthology of Readings

Front Cover
SAGE, Apr 6, 2006 - Education - 312 pages
1 Review
Eugene Provenzo, a nationally recognized scholar in the foundations of education, has edited this collection of significant interdisciplinary documents relevant to western traditions of education. He will also provide commentary and analysis throughout in the form of original essays and head notes. After a brief essay on classical and pre-modern education, he will focus on modern and post modern ideas. The book is weighted toward the modern and post-modern because most instructors give these periods the most attention. This book will include selections from theorists ranging roughly from Dewey, Montessori and William James through such important present day writers as William Pinar, Bell Hooks, Lisa Delpit, and Henry Giroux. The book will appeal to undergraduate and graduate instructors and students from a wide range of foundational courses. Individual scholars will also be interested in adding this volume to their shelves.
