Teaching Toward Freedom: Moral Commitment and Ethical Action in the Classroom

by William Ayers

Ayers (education, U. of Illinois at Chicago), who has taught for 30 years, feels that teachers are "moral actors," that teaching involves "moral commitment and ethical action," and that these elements are at the core of real education. He advises teachers to accept their calls as instigators of freedom and enlightenment, and act as coworkers with students. Using examples from the academe, including poetry, history, and fiction, as well as popular culture, he examines what can go right, and wrong, and how teachers can be liberators or tyrants, depending on how they perceive their core missions and on how well they understand their students as individuals. Ayers includes neither a bibliography nor an index. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)

Teaching What You're Not

by Katherine Mayberry

Can whites teach African-American literature effectively and legitimately? What is at issue when a man teaches a women's studies course? How effectively can a straight woman educate students about gay and lesbian history? What are the political implications of the study of the colonizers by the colonized? More generally, how does the identity of an educator affect his or her credibility with students and with other educators? In incident after well-publicized incident, these abstract questions have turned up in America's classrooms and in national media, often trivialized as the latest example of PC excess. Going beyond simplistic headlines, Teaching What You're Not broaches these and many other difficult questions. With contributions from scholars in a variety of disciplines, the book examines the ways in which historical, cultural, and personal identities impact on pedagogy and scholarship. Essays cover such topics as the outsider's gaze as it applies to the study of non-white literature; an able-bodied woman's reflections on teaching literature by disabled women; and the challenges of teaching the Western canon at an African American college.

Those who seek a deep, thoughtful examination of strategies for active learning will find that here as well--in abundance. Dr. Bruff achieves a marvelous synthesis of the pragmatic and the philosophical that will be useful far beyond the life span of any single technology." --Gardner Campbell, Director, Academy for Teaching and Learning, and Associate Professor of Literature, Media, and Learning, Honors College, Baylor University

The Teachings of Master Wuzhu: Zen and Religion of No-Religion

by Wendi L. Adamek

The Record of the Dharma-Jewel Through the Generations (Lidai fabao ji) is a little-known Chan/Zen Buddhist text of the eighth century, rediscovered in 1900. The text relayss a fascinating sectarian history of Buddhism refracted through the progressive philosophy of Bao Tang founder Chan Master Wuzhu (714-774). The Lidai fabao ji illustrates Master Wuzhu's reinterpretation of the Chinese practices of merit, repentance, precepts, and Dharma transmission. These aspects of traditional Buddhism continue to be topics of debate in contemporary practice, making the Lidai fabao ji a vital document of its struggles and compromises. Wendi L. Adamek's translation brings Master Wuzhu's experimental community to life and situates his paradigm-shifting teachings within the history of Buddhist thought.

A Team for America: The Army-Navy Game That Rallied a Nation

by Randy Roberts

One of the greatest stories in American sports history: how the 1944 Army team beat Navy, captured a championship, and inspired a nation at war."There never has been a sports event, perhaps never an event of any kind, that received the attention of so many Americans in so many places around the world." So wrote a reporter on December 2, 1944, about the greatest Army-Navy football game in the long history of that storied rivalry. World War II raged; President Roosevelt was seriously ill, only a few months away from death; and Americans on the home front suffered through shortages--including, just days before the game, a Thanksgiving without turkey or pie. But for one day, all that was forgotten. Army's team was ranked number 1, Navy's number 2. Army's years of football misery had been lifted by a wartime team and a brilliant coach who made them a contender. If they beat Navy, they would be national champions. For a few short hours the war seemed to stop, as U.S. soldiers around the world tuned in to a broadcast of the game and turned their thoughts toward home. Randy Roberts has interviewed surviving players and coaches for nearly a decade to bring to life one of the most memorable stories in all of American sports. For three years, Army football upperclassmen had graduated and joined the fight, from Normandy beaches to Pacific atolls. For three hours, their alma mater gave them back one unforgettable performance.

Team Geek

by Ben Collins-Sussman Brian W. Fitzpatrick

In a perfect world, software engineers who produce the best code are the most successful. But in our perfectly messy world, success also depends on how you work with people to get your job done. In this highly entertaining book, Brian Fitzpatrick and Ben Collins-Sussman cover basic patterns and anti-patterns for working with other people, teams, and users while trying to develop software. This is valuable information from two respected software engineers whose popular series of talks--including "Working with Poisonous People"--has attracted hundreds of thousands of followers. Writing software is a team sport, and human factors have as much influence on the outcome as technical factors. Even if you've spent decades learning the technical side of programming, this book teaches you about the often-overlooked human component. By learning to collaborate and investing in the "soft skills" of software engineering, you can have a much greater impact for the same amount of effort.

Team Human

by Justine Larbalestier Sarah Rees Brennan

Just because Mel lives in New Whitby, a city founded by vampires, doesn't mean she knows any of the blood-drinking undead personally. They stay in their part of town; she says in hers. Until the day a vampire shows up at her high school. Worse yet, her best friend, Cathy, seems to be falling in love with him. It's up to Mel to save Cathy from a mistake she might regret for all eternity! On top of trying to help Cathy (whether she wants it or not), Mel is investigating a mysterious disappearance for another friend and discovering the attractions of a certain vampire wannabe. Combine all this with a cranky vampire cop, a number of unlikely romantic entanglements, and the occasional zombie, and soon Mel is hip-deep in an adventure that is equal parts hilarious and touching. Acclaimed authors Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan team up to create a witty and poignant story of cool vampires, warm friendships, and the changes that test the bonds of love.

Team Interpreting

by Jack Hoza

This book is about how interpreters work together in teams. Much has been written about the process by which an interpreter determines equivalent meaning in the target language, and how interpreters manage their work and make important professional, ethical, and meaning-based decisions. Although team interpreting is commonplace in interpreting assignments that are lengthy, complex, or particularly challenging, little study has been made of this important feature of the interpreting profession. Teaming has the potential to enrich the interpretation, provide additional support for the interpreters, and enable participants in the interpreted interaction to better achieve their goals. This book represents the first major published volume that addresses team interpreting.
