Inspiring new techniques for engaging students with democratic ideals
"John Dewey and the Philosophy and Practice of Hope" combines philosophical theory with a study of its effects in an actual classroom. To understand how Dewey, one of the century's foremost philosophers of education, understood the concept of hope, Stephen Fishman begins with theoretical questions like: What is hope? What are its objects? How can hope foster a new understanding of democracy and social justice?
The book's second half is a classroom study that mir-rors in practice what Fishman explores in theory, as Lucille McCarthy observes Fishman's undergraduate students reading the theorists. Illustrating students' own vital engagement with the hope literature, McCarthy reveals how the discussions deepen student understandings, simultaneously showing education's power to promote hope and turn social ideals into reality.
Ever since Horace Mann promoted state supported schooling in the 1850s, the aims of U.S. public education have been the subject of heated national debate. "Whose Goals? Whose Aspirations?" joins this debate by exploring clashing educational aims in a discipline-based university classroom and the consequences of these clashes for "underprepared" writers.
In this close-up look at a White middle-class teacher and his ethnically diverse students, Fishman and McCarthy examine not only the role of Standard English in college writing instruction but also the underlying and highly charged issues of multiculturalism, race cognizance, and social class.
Stephen Fishman has kept the techno-babble to a minimum while retaining all that is important concerning Electronics Aboard. How a device works may not be necessary to your understanding of its use, but some things are simply interesting to learn. Stephen won't bore you with the details of how a microprocessor works or the theories of resistivity, but taking a moment to learn about sine waves and radio frequencies will be worth your time. Unlike many other electronics books, you will not be intimidated by the information you read in this book. It is written in a concise, easy to understand style.If you are the equivalent of a marine propeller head, run do not walk to the shelf where you found this book and put it back. You won't like it. But if you want plain-talk about truly useful equipment that can enrich your boating experience, you have definitely picked the right book.
