Karen Elizabeth Mundy
Canadian Scholars' Press, 2008 - Education - 394 pages
This text explores major issues in education today through international and intercultural research. Suitable both for teachers and graduate students, the book stimulates students to reflect on their future roles in education through exposure to debates about teaching and learning in diverse settings. Authors draw on comparative research from North America, Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East, and touch on themes including history and philosophy of comparative education, the right to education, teacher formation, alternative pedagogies, testing, multiculturalism, gender, conflict resolution and global citizenship. With its vivid portrayal of global educational practices, contributions from pre-eminent scholars, and suggested teaching resources, this anthology will be an excellent resource for teacher education and graduate level courses.
