Pedagogies of Resistance: Women Educator Activists, 1880-1960
Teachers College Press, 1999 - Biography & Autobiography - 132 pages
In this book, you will meet women who resisted the conventional wisdom of their day -- including gender roles -- to make education and society more equitable and humane:
-- Jane Addams, founder of Hull House, and Ida B. Wells, the anti-lynching advocate, who worked together in Chicago to enact their own vision of democratic education
-- Two New Jersey women: Elizabeth Almira Allen, who proposed a plan for the first statewide teacher pension system in the country, and Marion Thompson Wright, who promoted school integration
-- Helen Heffernan and Corinne Seeds, both of whom advocated the child-centered approach of progressive education for all children in California.
