A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Maintaining that urban teaching and learning is characterized by many contradictions, this work proposes that there is a wide range of social, cultural, psychological, and pedagogical knowledge urban educators must posses in order to engage in effective and transformative practice. It is necessary for those teaching in urban schools to be scholar practitioners rather than bureaucrats, who can only follow rather than analyze, understand, and create. The ten major sections cover: context of urban education; race and ethnicity; social justice; teaching and pedagogy; power and urban education; language issues; cultural issues of urban schools as seen in the media; doing research in city schools; aesthetics and the proximity of cultural institutions; and, education policy. Sixty-one essays - written by specialists in teacher education; public policy; sociology; psychology; applied linguistics; forestry; urban studies; school administrators; cultural studies; evaluation, and linguistics - provide a blueprint for scholars, teachers, parents, urban politicians, school administrators, policy professionals and others seeking to understand the situation of urban schools across America today.

Critique:

"[T]he Handbook reveals the lack of research and abundance of anecdote that marks knowledge production in this field...[t]heir descriptions or a critical urban pedagogy are an important contribution. New teachers in urban schools need to understand the children they will teach. They need also to question their assumptions, and, for many, they need to be willing to acknowledge that they are not in Kansas anymore." - MultiCultural Review "Sixty one essays written by specialists in teacher education; public policy; sociology; psychology; applied linguistics; forestry; urban studies; school administration; cultural studies; evaluation; and linguistics provides a blueprint for scholars, teachers, parents, urban politicians, school administrators, policy professionals, and others seeking to understand the situation of the urban schools across America today." - Library Media Connection "Written by a mixture of education school faculty, graduate students, and practicing schoolteachers and administrators, this work is aimed at urban teachers and the faculty who teach them; both groups usually come from very different socioeconomic backgrounds than their urban students. Many of the topics range well beyond the traditional boundaries of education, and reflect the major force for socialization that schools have become for today's children. Included are articles on street vendors, parenting styles of low-income African American parents, Saturday remediation programs, globalization's impact on urban education, the media's portrayal of city schools, and the role of cultural and art institutions in the life of a city. The underlying message focuses on the need to improve urban education through fundamental rethinking and reshaping. Most essays have extensive bibliographies. Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." - Choice "Emphasis on urban education is sorely needed, and this two-volume series of readings is more than adequate in filling that need and shifting the paradigm of educational theory to current concerns in the urban context...The articles engage readers in examining theory and practice with a grounding in democratic education, often with critical theory or postmodern thought...This is essential reading for not only urban educators, but also for educators, as well as administrators and others invested or interested in the current educational terrain of this country. Recommended." - Library Media Connection "The articles in this set cover a wide range of social, cultural, psychological, and pedagogical topics providing educators with essential background information on the issues relevant to urban education. The No Child Left Behind Act, race and ethnicity, social justice, and language are some of the subjects addressed. Well-organized and concise." - Curriculum Connections School Library Journal
