Targeted Teaching

Strategies for Secondary Teaching

Author: Tremaine Baker

Publisher: Learning Matters

ISBN: 1526412101

Category: Education

Page: 208

There is no single best approach in teaching. This new text challenges the idea that there is a 'best way' to teach. Instead, the authors explain, a more pragmatic approach is required. Teachers need a range of skills and strategies to select from, work with and adapt. Every school, cohort, class and child is different. Beyond that, strategies that worked well with a class last week, may prove ineffective the next. This book: · presents a range of strategies, well grounded in research, for trainees and beginning teachers to use in their own classroom settings and contexts · presents a model of teaching that views teaching not as a profession in which there is always a single correct answer, but as a complex interaction between teacher and students · addresses common issues that beginning teachers face when developing their practice If you are a teacher wanting to find out what works best for your class, in your school, right now, this text will show you how to harness the power of small or large scale research to help you find the answer.

Political Investigations

Hegel, Marx and Arendt

Author: Robert Fine

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134554648

Category: Social Science

Page: 192

View: 3919

In this highly innovative book Robert Fine compares three great studies of modern political life: Hegel's Elements of the Philosophy of Right, Marx's Capital and Hannah Arendt's Origins of Totalitarianism, and argues that they are all profoundly radical texts, which jointly contribute to our understanding of the modern world. Fine maintains that these works are far more revealing when read together than in opposition, and draws a direct parallel between Hegel’s critique of social forms of right and Marx’s critique of social forms of value. Fine shows how fruitfully their work can and should be combined. Hannah Arendt was in turn critical of what she saw as the historicism of both Hegel and Marx, but Fine argues that her study of the origins of totalitarianism directly picks up on their insights into the modern potential for fanaticism and destructiveness. Arendt never disavowed any of the nineteenth century thinkers who prefigured the catastrophes to come, but Fine shows her indebtedness to Hegel and Marx. This fascinating book offers a re-reading of these texts as three pivotal moments in the construction of a critical humanist tradition.
