OK, HOW'S ABOUT SOME FAVORITE BOOK TITLES?

SOME INFLUENTIAL AUTHORS


These are some of my guiding lights. From critical pedagogy to useful classroom and counselor's office use, they are thought-provoking and can give you many ideas about education. Would love to read about some of yours......
  • Teaching As A Subversive Activity, by Neil Postman and Charles Weingartner, 1969, A Delta Book (Dell Publishing Company), New York. One of the old classics.....
  • Lives on the Boundary: The Struggles and Achievements of America's Underprepared, by Mike Rose, 1989, The Free Press (A Division of Macmillan, Inc.), New York. Very interesting & powerful! Rose was running a Writing Lab at ULCA at the time. He describes his own cultural evolution coming out West.
  • Multiethnic Education: Theory and Practice, second edition, by James A. Banks, 1988, Allyn and Bacon, Inc. Boston. Excellent scholarly work.
  • The Tao of Leadership, by John Heider, 1985 Humanics New Age, Atlanta. Tao statements inclined to wisdom for gentle leaders. Beautiful graphics, too.
  • The Managing Diversity Survival Guide: A Complete Collection of Checklists, Activities, and Tips, by Lee Gardenswartz and Anita Rowe, 1994, Irwin Professional Publishing, Chicaco. Chock full o' resource ideas and how-to's.
  • Proverbios de todo el mundo by Axel Scheffer, 1997, Maxmillan, Editiones Destino, S.A. Barcelona. Fun and colorful.
  • Experiential Activities for Intercultural Learning, Vol.1, H. Ned Seelye, Editor, 1996, Intercultural Press, Inc. Yarmouth, Maine. One of many such availaible.

I hope these give you a context for some of my interests, and I'd like to share yours regarding education in a multicultural world where technology itself is transforming our communications as much as our experiences. Comment below!
