9780131702813: Cultural Foundations of Education (4th Edition)

Cultural Foundations of Education is designed to provide a foundation for thinking about curricula and pedagogy. The authors believe that educators must be equipped with the knowledge and understanding necessary for effective analysis of educational issues. The foundation of the new edition is that this book will contribute to more thoughtful dialogue about education in its cultural context. A number of significant changes have been incorporated into the fourth edition, including chapter-opening vignettes, concepts of "private" and "operating" cultures and syncretism, and a discussion of the role of history in understanding cultural foundations of education.

From the Publisher:

The long-awaited revision of this thought-provoking text combines the concepts of anthropology, education, schooling, teaching, and learning into an insightful introduction to the study of the cultural basis for education. Through this unique interdisciplinary approach, the authors explore the full range of culture-education interfaces and their influence on teaching.

From the Back Cover:

This thought-provoking book examines education as a cultural phenomenon and explores the implications of this perspective on schooling, multicultural education, educational development, and the process of teaching and learning. The authors combine the concepts of anthropology, education, schooling, teaching, and learning into an insightful introduction to the study of the cultural basis of education. Key topics include conflict between core and youth values, minority languages in the classroom, contemporary analysis of the IQ issues, recent school reform efforts, a new look at approaches to multicultural education, the postmodern conception of childhood and its educational implications, a discussion of performance assessment, communication and learning styles, and intercultural communication and competence. For teachers or any individuals interested in the relationship between social context and educational issues.
