Joe L. Kincheloe

Twenty years after the publication of Howard Gardner’s Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, Joe L. Kincheloe and the contributing authors of Multiple Intelligences Reconsidered critique and rethink the theory in new frames of reference. Initially drawn to multiple intelligences (MI) theory because of its self-proclaimed challenge to the psychology establishment, the authors delineate their disillusionment with its evolution over the last two decades. The critiques provided here open exciting new doors to innovation in educational psychology and pedagogy, and move the fields in the direction initially promised by MI theory. Each intelligence presented by Gardner is examined and critiqued, while larger concepts in the theory are identified and assessed.

Getting Beyond the Facts

Teaching Social Studies/Social Sciences in the Twenty-first Century

Joe L. Kincheloe

In this second edition of Getting Beyond the Facts, Kincheloe presents a comprehensive view of complex-democratic social studies in the 21st century. He argues that the reform of social studies education requires a corps of rigorous social science scholars who understand the historical origins of the social studies, the conceptual foundations of the field, its strengths and weaknesses, and modes of social theoretical analysis and takes students through numerous intellectual encounters in social studies and the contexts that inform it. Focusing on the importance of knowledge production and interpretation, Kincheloe calls for the education of social studies teachers as researchers who can critique and reconstruct curriculum as they expose the covert, ideological functions of contemporary educational reforms and top-down standards-driven social studies subject matter. In an era of depoliticization and induced political illiteracy, Kincheloe calls for a new form of social studies/social sciences scholarship to counter such alarming trends.

Joe L. Kincheloe

The Critical Constructivism Primer introduces education students to the study of knowledge; how it is inscribed by particular values and produced in problematic ways; whose interests it serves; and how it shapes the identities of those who consume it. Critical constructivism is an epistemological position that examines the process by which knowledge is socially constructed. Joe L. Kincheloe takes readers through the basic concepts and alerts them to the dangers of objectivism, reductionism, and the pathological views of self and world that emerge if students and educators are unaware of the construction of knowledge by dominant power interests. The book is essential reading for individuals who want to become researchers and educators.

Critical Pedagogy Primer

Second Edition

Series:

Joe L. Kincheloe

The second edition of the Critical Pedagogy Primer not only introduces the topic but also provides a vision for the future of the critical pedagogy. Kincheloe’s notion of an «evolving criticality» makes sure that critical pedagogy will continue to be a vibrant and creative force that makes a powerful difference in education and in the world in general. As it prepares readers for the challenges of the future, it focuses on the traditions and individuals who have helped construct the discipline. This attention to the past and the future provides readers with an introduction unlike most initiations into academic disciplines. In a richly textured but direct manner, Kincheloe captures the spirit of critical pedagogy in a language accessible to diverse audiences. Both the uninitiated and those with experience in critical pedagogy can learn from this unique and compelling perspective on the field.

Regenerating the Philosophy of Education

What Happened to Soul?- Introduction by Shirley R. Steinberg

Joe L. Kincheloe and Randall Hewitt

In this volume, Joe L. Kincheloe and Randall Hewitt have gathered an impressive and scholarly group of authors who argue for the continuing importance of the philosophy of education. Reviving the notion that philosophy is an essential foundation in the study and research of education, contributors to this volume directly confront the evisceration of the topic by those who are interested in commercializing learning. Contrary to the current shift away from foundations courses, this volume proves that pre-service teachers need an intense awareness of the subjects that comprise the core of their knowledge. Philosophy of education is central to this concept. Regenerating the Philosophy of Education is an excellent classroom resource, and is essential reading for all undergraduate and graduate students in schools of education.

Art, Culture, & Education

Artful Teaching in a Fractured Landscape

Karel Rose and Joe L. Kincheloe

While the authors of this book were team teaching a course called «High and Low Art: Good and Bad Taste», the «Sensation» controversy at the Brooklyn Museum broke out. This controversy not only shaped their course, but had larger implications for art, culture, and education in general for the twenty-first century. By asking serious aesthetic and cultural questions about art and teaching, this book explores the power of art to shape both our emotions and our intellect.

Teaching City Kids

Understanding and Appreciating Them

Kecia Hayes and Joe L. Kincheloe

This book examines the maligned students who populate urban schools and finds a talented group of resilient young people who deserve the support of the larger society. The editors and authors explore the ways such students are undermined, in the process developing new ways of teaching based on an understanding and appreciation of them. Contemporary political leaders have used the fear of the poor, non-white, and immigrant «city kids» we study here to push racist and class-biased social and educational agendas. This book challenges these tactics, while laying out a pedagogy of respect and hope.

Peter McLaren and Joe L. Kincheloe

Our educational system is in turmoil. Many would argue that it has been assaulted and oversimplified by the right. There is growing concern that we are becoming a liberal nation-state with an increasingly anti-liberal population and an electorate that is disinterested in politics. In this globalized world, the power of capital is so great that opposition to it is often discouraged and disheartened, leaving many citizens few political precepts by which to consider their institutions. This contemporary failure of vision has opened the way for the unimpeded return of the philosophy of the free market. As a result, social and educational policies are debated almost solely in terms of how they fit with the needs of the market. Social and ethical understandings are replaced by a failed economic theory that requires a radical constraint of our political and economic choices. Compassion for the poor, the market lets us know, is wrong-headed because any interference with the labor market will always result in unfortunate economic and social consequences. Moral issues are eclipsed by market needs. In Critical Pedagogy: Where Are We Now? the contributors discuss how the field of critical pedagogy should respond to such dire conditions in a way that is theoretically savvy and visionary, while concurrently contributing to the struggle to improve the lives of those most hurt by them. Critical Pedagogy is essential reading for every classroom teacher and pre-service teacher. It is also a valuable tool for use in undergraduate and graduate-level classrooms.
