  • Post-conflict education for democracy and reform : Bosnian education in the post-war era, 1995--2015 / Brian Lanahan
    This book examines the history of Bosnia and post-conflict Bosnian education in the setting of a society very much still politically divided. Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) serves as the perfect case study for examining how education evolves within the context of massive state-building efforts and mass educational reform. Focusing on issues central to successful education in a democracy, Lanahan highlights the importance of the governance structures of the Dayton Peace Accords, the split nature of education in BiH, the international community's involvement in education, teacher education, and higher education reform.
    Drawing on a wealth of research by national and international experts, this book provides an engaging and timely study of global governance, regional integration, and oversight by the international community over a 20-year period for policymakers to consider as they continue to create policy for other emerging democracies. Both academics and practitioners in the field of international education and development will find this an invaluable text.

  • Re-designing teacher education for culturally and linguistically diverse children : a critical-ecological approach / edited by Ana Christina daSilva Iddings
    LB 1707 R43 2017

    Through a critical-ecological lens, this book examines how to prepare preservice teachers to be resourceful and responsive practitioners in addressing the intellectual needs of children often labeled as "culturally and linguistically diverse." It explores a comprehensive re-design of a teacher education program grounded in research on the complex factors that affect the teaching and learning of linguistically and culturally diverse children. Re-Designing Teacher Education for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students challenges hegemonic cultural and linguistic norms, quantitative and static views of "resources," the impact of U.S. education policy, and the limited attention to the agency, identities, and strategic actions of diverse students and their families.

    LC 4031 P37 2018

    Parents and Families of Students With Special Needs: Collaborating Across the Age Span teaches students the skills they need to effectively collaborate with parents and families to ensure a child's success in the classroom. Authors Vicki A. McGinley and Melina Alexander's text takes a lifespan approach with a special emphasis on the critical transition points in a child's life. Information is provided on what can be seen at each stage of an individual with disabilities' development, and addresses concerns and needs that families may have during these unique phases of growth. Chapters written by professors and professionals who are also parents of students with special needs bring a diverse range of voices into the narrative. The authors provide an in-depth discussion of how parents and families are affected by particular disabilities, family system theory, the laws that affect individuals with disabilities, and assessments for individuals with disabilities.

  • Contemporary perspectives on research on bullying and victimization in early childhood education / edited by Olivia N. Saracho, University of Maryland
    LB 3013.3 C66 2016

  • Appropriating the discourse of social justice in teacher education / Marta P. Baltodano
    LB 1715 B34 2015
    In recent years there have been strong movements of reforms in teacher education. The most common are intended to adjust teacher preparation to the standardization demands of NCLB, Race to the Top, and CAEP to make teacher education more accountable. These reforms carried out in the name of excellence, accountability, diversity, and inclusion constitute subliminal efforts to appropriate the possibilities for real transformation in teacher education. However, in spite of the pervasive rhetoric to identify diversity and social justice with the accountability and standardization movement, there are endeavors to create transformations in teacher preparation that are authentic. These deliberate changes seek to counteract the neoliberal vision of school reform and strive to reclaim the original goals of public education represented in a vision of rigorous content knowledge, democratic schooling, and social justice. Appropriating the Discourse of Social Justice in Teacher Education is a testimony to that kind of authentic reform. It documents the transformational efforts of a teacher education program that infused the preparation of its teachers with a vision of education as a public good. This book validates the claim that the process of reproduction of social inequalities in teacher education is not a perfect, static process, but on the contrary, the real seeds of transformation within teacher education departments are abundant."

  • De l'éducation spécialisée / Maurice Capul, Michel Lemay
    LC 3965 C36 2013

  • Comparative studies in educational policy analysis / by Timothy Reagan
    LC 71 R43 2012
    This book has a pedagogical goal in mind; it is not a scholarly work so much as an applied text informed by scholarship and research. The book's goal is to provide individuals who are teaching courses in comparative and international education, educational administration, educational policy, and politics of education with a supplementary text that can be used to help their students develop skills in policy analysis, evaluation and development. As is explained in the book, the problem that we face with respect to having students engage in "hands-on" study of particular cases is that by focusing on real cases, students are faced with either virtually unlimited data, or insufficient data (or, indeed, paradoxically with both problems). In addition, students come to such cases with all sorts of preconceptions that can cloud judgment in a host of ways. By making use of fictitious case studies, though, we can carefully limit the amount of data with which students need to deal, and we can also minimize the challenges presented by the "baggage" that students might bring with them about particular real nations.
