Henri Wallon (1879–1962) : action pensée, pensée de l'action

Itinéraires croisés : politique, philosophique, psychologique

Serge Netchine and Gaby Netchine-Grynberg

Henri Wallon (1879–1962), éminent psychologue de l’enfant, fut aussi, à partir des années 1900, un acteur de la vie intellectuelle et politique française. Cet ouvrage parcourt les grands thèmes de ses recherches sur les enfants souffrant ou non de pathologies mentales, en les articulant à ses engagements de citoyen et à ses positionnements intellectuels. Sont envisagées, au regard du contexte politique et culturel, les prises de position et les actions effectuées par Henri Wallon au cours d’une période historique qui fut riche en événements et en retournements. De plus, cette recherche illustre la détermination d’une doctrine philosophique intégrant le résultat des controverses entre courants spiritualistes et matérialistes apparues tout au long des XIXe et XXe siècles ainsi que l’élaboration d’une démarche scientifique sur le développement psychologique qui intègre des enjeux pratiques et sociétaux.

Ce livre met finalement en lumière ce qui, du parcours d’Henri Wallon, mérite d’être souligné et d’intervenir dans les problèmes contemporains.

Serie McDougal III

The revised edition of Research Methods in Africana Studies is a major contribution to the discipline of Africana studies and social science involving people of African descent in general. The first edition was the first of its kind, offering instruction on how to conduct culturally relevant critical research on Africana communities in the American context, in addition to the African diaspora. The revised edition contains a collection of the most widely used theories and paradigms designed for exploring, explaining, and advancing Africana communities through science. The relevance, strengths, and weaknesses of every major method of data collection are explained as they relate to the lived experiences of the Black world. It stands alone as the only textbook that details empirical methods in the service of the collective advancement of Africana peoples.

Die Schienenfahrzeugindustrie steht vor der Herausforderung, die künftige Entwicklung ihres Personals zu gestalten. Eine Maßnahme, um Mitarbeiter zu qualifizieren, ist eine betriebliche Weiterbildung. Die Autorin untersucht Einflussfaktoren auf die betriebliche Weiterbildungsbereitschaft des Projektkernteams. Als Grundlage für die empirische Studie eines Schienenfahrzeugherstellers dienen verschiedene theoretische Ansätze. Die Studie zeigt auf, dass externe Kontextfaktoren und institutionelle Rahmenbedingungen im Umfeld der Schienenfahrzeugindustrie permanenten Veränderungen unterliegen. Diese werden beispielsweise durch die steigende technische Komplexität der Fahrzeuge hervorgerufen. Die betriebliche Weiterbildungsbereitschaft der Mitarbeiter steht in Abhängigkeit zu dem Verhalten des Vorgesetzten, beispielsweise im Umgang mit auftretenden Schwierigkeiten.

Forgotten Places

Critical Studies in Rural Education

Series:

William M. Reynolds

Forgotten Places: Critical Studies in Rural Education critically investigates and informs the construction of the rural, rural identity and the understanding of the rural internationally. This book promotes and expands the notion of critical understandings of rural education, particularly in the areas of race, class, gender, and LGBTQ, with conceptualizations of social justice. While there have been many volumes written on critical issues in urban education, only a small number have been produced on rural education, and the majority of those are not critical. By contrast, Forgotten Places not only discusses "schools in the country," but also expands conceptualizations of the rural beyond schools and place as well as beyond the borders of the United States. It also tackles the artificial duality between conceptualizations of urban and rural. Forgotten Places includes scholarly investigations into the connections among the symbolic order, various forms of cultural artifacts and multiple readings of these artifacts within the context of critical/transformational pedagogy. This book fills a significant gap in the scholarly work on the ramifications of the rural.

Neues Licht auf Ellen Key

Quo vadis Europa? Biographische Skizzen über eine europäische Vordenkerin

Margrit Hansen

Das Buch widmet sich der schwedischen Philosophin Ellen Key (1849–1926), die bereits um 1900 den Begriff der Entwicklung mit ökologischem und nichtzerstörerischem Wirtschaften in Verbindung brachte. Sie analysierte die Schlüsselprobleme, Gerechtigkeit, Freiheit, Sicherung des Weltfriedens und Bewahrung der lebendigen Schöpfung. Key warnte bereits vor Gefährdungen, die erst die heutige Wissenschaft nachweisen und messen kann. Sie bewog als «Prophetin der Zukunft» und «Anwältin des Kindes» den polnisch-jüdischen Arzt Janusz Korczak Kinderrechte zu formulieren und wurde von den gleichgesinnten Visionären einer humaneren Zeit, Stefan Zweig und Martin Buber, verehrt. Im Angesicht gesellschaftlicher und ökologischer Herausforderungen bleibt Keys Gesamtwerk hochaktuell.

Of late, leadership has come to include individuals in elementary, secondary and tertiary institutions who do not necessarily carry leadership titles.  Faculty in preK-16 institutions, along with other staff and community people, have increasingly begun to take on leadership responsibilities as shared leadership is articulated and practiced more and more in education.  This volume focuses on educational leadership--broadly defined.  More specifically, following several research-based thought pieces in which the authors define and discuss this new conception of leadership, contributors offer preK-16 case study illustrations of this recent conception of educational leadership.  Readers will use this casebook as a foundational text for courses in teacher education, educational leadership, business and higher education. It includes detailed chapters focused on teacher leadership, principal leadership and higher educational leadership.

Becoming a Great Inclusive Educator, Second Edition offers educators the guidance and resources to become great inclusive educators by engaging in a powerful process of personal and professional transformation.  Inclusive education continues to grow in popularity and acceptance in the United States. But most teachers – general and special educators – are poorly prepared to be successful in inclusive classrooms and schools. Undoubtedly, the challenge to professionals involves the acquisition of new knowledge and skills. But inclusion requires far more. It calls upon educators to trouble everything they think they know about disability, to question their deepest ethical commitments, to take up the work of the Disability Rights Movement in the public schools, and to leap headlong into the deepest waters of the rich craft tradition of inclusive teaching.

Uncovering Black Heroes

Lesser-Known Stories of Liberty and Civil Rights

Series:

David Boers

Uncovering Black Heroes: Lesser-Known Stories of Liberty and Civil Rights is a series of stories regarding real people who are not so well known in the mainstream of American freedom and civil rights discussions. These people have made a difference by the events of their lives and by the deliberate contributions they made. In some chapters depictions of fugitive slaves create awareness of the perils of freedom runs and of the desperate, dangerous, and terrifying life of being a hunted person. In other chapters the degree of local level blockage individuals needed to confront is exposed. Still other chapters point out major efforts by diligent, but for the most part unknown, local people that result in court case settlements and state laws to advance civil rights, in particular suffrage. One chapter takes a close look at leaders in women’s clubs and how those leaders defined women’s roles in the Black freedom and civil rights movements. Themes stand out as they all build upon each other and are seen from one chapter to the next. In the end, a subtle evolution of ideas can be realized that forms the notion that the great and recognized Black leaders in history have their important place but that freedom and civil rights advancements are made on the backs of the local unknowns who need to be recognized for what they have contributed. This uncovering of unknown players involved in crucial events of their times in the quest for social, political, civil, and personal equality and freedom provides a unique perspective somewhat counter to mainstream thinking.
