about this item

?This co-edited volume addresses the professional and personal influences of Joe L. Kincheloe’s scholarship to the teacher and curriculum educator. Scholars from the various areas in the social foundations discuss the impact that Kincheloe’s work had on their thinking and consequently the possibilities for the critical nature of their critical classroom pedagogy and critical research in social foundations of education geared toward social praxis. The volume provides a lens into the crevices and corners of the field where practitioners labor to provide their students the inspiration to believe in democratic educational practices, to know that the personal is political, and that finding voice through written and spoken discourses are the ways in which we enact democracy. It attends to the implications of Kincheloe’s scholarship for the curriculum overburdened with value added and testing measures and contrasts Kincheloe's high intellectual spirit and his populist and democratic approach to working with young and aspiring scholars in the field as critical educators informed by foundational disciplines.
