Culturally sustaining and revitalizing pedagogies : language, culture, and power
edited by Cathy Coulter, Margarita Jimenez-Silva
Bingley, UK : Emerald Publishing Limited, 2017
"Today's schools compartmentalize children and curriculum. Standardization dictates curricular content and assessment, narrowing the focus of classrooms and schools that serve diverse populations from varied geographical backgrounds. Against the backdrop of the western-derived, institutional framework of schooling are cultural ways of knowing that are place-based, holistic, experiential, and connected to oral storytelling. In the current movement toward acknowledging and understanding cultural knowledge, teacher education programs need to work in collaboration with cultural communities, honoring traditions and epistemologies and seeking to revitalize and sustain (Paris, 2012) language and culture. Such initiatives inform the big picture of educational reform and enrich mainstream university teacher education programs. This book highlights the journeys, challenges and unfolding stories of transformation that reside within university/community/school partnerships focused on cultural and linguistic revitalization through schooling."--Book cover.

The struggle for the soul of teacher education
Zeichner, Kenneth M., author
New York, NY : Routledge, 2018
The struggle for the soul of teaching and teacher education in the US / Kenneth M. Zeichner -- Competition, economic rationalization, increased surveillance, and attacks on diversity: neo-liberalism and the transformation of teacher education in the US / Kenneth M. Zeichner -- Venture philanthropy and teacher education policy in the US: the role of the new schools venture fund / Kenneth M. Zeichner and Cesar Pena-Sandoval -- Beyond knowledge ventriloquism and echo chambers: raising the quality of the debate in teacher education / Kenneth M. Zeichner and Hilary G. Conklin -- Independent teacher education programs: apocryphal claims, illusory evidence / Kenneth M. Zeichner -- Democratizing teacher education / Kenneth M. Zeichner, Katherina A. Payne, and Kate Brayko - Opportunities and pitfalls in the turn toward clinical experience in US teacher education / Kenneth M. Zeichner and Marisa Bier -- Engaging and working in solidarity with local communities in preparing the teachers of their children / Kenneth M. Zeichner, Michael Bowman, Lorena Guillen, and Kate Napolitan -- Developing professional capital in teaching through initial teacher education: comparing strategies in Alberta, Canada and the US / Kenneth M. Zeichner and Jesslyn Hollar -- Advancing social justice and democracy in teacher education: teacher preparation 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 / Kenneth M. Zeichner.

"The Struggle for the Soul of Teacher Education is a much-needed exploration of the unprecedented current controversies and debates over teacher education and professionalism. Set within the context of neo-liberal education reforms across the globe, the book explores how the current struggles over teaching and teacher education in the US came about, as well as reflections on where we should head in the future. Zeichner provides specific examples of work that moves teacher education toward greater congruency between ideals and practices, while outlining the basis for a new form of community-based teacher education, where universities and other program providers, local communities, school districts, and teacher unions share responsibility for the preparation of teachers. Ultimately, Zeichner problematizes an uncritical shift to more practice and clinical experience, and discusses the enduring problems of clinical teacher education needed for this shift to be educative" --

The probabilistic foundations of rational learning
Huttegger, Simon M., 1976- author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2017
1. Consistency and symmetry; 2. Bounded rationality; 3. Pattern learning; 4. Large worlds; 5. Radical probabilism; 6. Reflection; 7. Disagreement; 8. Consensus.

"According to Bayesian epistemology, rational learning from experience is consistent learning, that is learning should incorporate new information consistently into one's old system of beliefs. Simon M. Huttegger argues that this core idea can be transferred to situations where the learner's informational inputs are much more limited than Bayesianism assumes, thereby significantly expanding the reach of a Bayesian type of epistemology. What results from this is a unified account of probabilistic learning in the tradition of Richard Jeffrey's 'radical probabilism'. Along the way, Huttegger addresses a number of debates in epistemology and the philosophy of science, including the status of prior probabilities, whether Bayes' rule is the only legitimate form of learning from experience, and whether rational agents can have sustained disagreements. His book will be of interest to students and scholars of epistemology, of game and decision theory, and of cognitive, economic, and computer sciences"--
