Dynamic of Paradox
THE conceptual framing for this critical historiography emerged after my review of the literature of the academic fields I saw as related to my research topic, the relevance of the domain of spiritual development in a developmentally responsive model of middle grades education. I drew three overlapping circles, with each circle representing the three large academic fields related to my topic, developmental psychology, middle grades education, and spiritualty. When these circles are arranged in a Venn diagram, the areas of overlap illustrate the ideas, positions, beliefs, values, and assumptions of each of the significant interrelationships among two fields at a time: the middle grades concept, spiritual development, and holistic education.
