Overview

This book, the first comprehensive, critical examination of the theory and pedagogy of the field of social foundations of education and its relevance and role within teacher education:

*Articulates central questions in the field--such as "What is social foundations?"; "Is there a social foundations canon?"; "Is it possible to teach for social justice?"; "What is student resistance?";

*Explores the limits and possibilities of teaching social foundations of education;

*Provides strong arguments for the continued relevance of the discipline for teacher education;

*Features a variety of clearly presented, theoretically grounded models for teaching social foundations within teacher education programs--including aesthetic education, critical theory, and eco-justice perspectives, the use of community-based oral histories, and experiential learning activities;

*Provides concrete examples, actual syllabi, and a host of additional resources to help faculty teach, publish, and do research; and

*Proposes new directions for research and dialogue within the field.
