Education in Popular Culture explores what makes schools, colleges, teachers and students an enduring focus for a wide range of contemporary media. What is it about the school experience that makes us wish to relive it again and again? The book provides an overview of education as it is represented in popular culture, together with a framework through which educators can interpret these representations in relation to their own professional values and development. The analyses are contextualised within contemporary, historical and ideological frameworks, and make connections between popular representations and professional and political discourses about education. Through its examination of film, television, popular lyrics and fiction, this book tackles educational themes that recur in popular culture, and demonstrates how they intersect with debates concerning teacher performance, the curriculum and young people’s behaviour and morality. Chapters explore how experiences of education are both reflected and constructed in ways that sometimes reinforce official and professional educational perspectives, and sometimes resist and oppose them. Education in Popular Culture will stimulate critical reflection on the popular myths and professional discourses that surround teachers and teaching. It will serve to deepen analyses of teaching and learning and their associated institutional and societal contexts in a creative and challenging way.

In the world of screen culture, the teacher is inevitably represented as a charismatic figure, able to tackle the deprivations or problems the students face and to form special relationships with them that no other staff colleague can. But how realistic are such representations, and what do real world teachers think about their reel world counterparts? This book takes a closer look at the charismatic teacher as portrayed in films such as Goodbye, Mr. Chips and To Sir, With Love, and in television series such as Hearts and Minds, and Teachers, and notes the reactions of classroom teachers to such portrayals. It considers the eccentric, resilient or romantic - but always charismatic - teacher in inner city schools, private or state schools and contrasts them with the words of practising teachers about their work.

What is the relationship between feminism and popular culture? Has there been a "backlash" against feminism, or is feminism incorporated into the mainstream? Can feminism learn from popular culture? This book explores these questions through a diverse range of texts and sites, including: Bridget Jones, African-American music videos, news coverage, radio shows, the Scream trilogy, Sex and the City, hip hop, and more. The book does not assume that popular culture could benefit from a feminist "makeover," instead, it analyzes how different meanings of feminism have been negotiated within popular culture and how popular culture has made sense of feminism.

Annotation Explores an underexamined source of influence that affects the way schooling is experienced and understood in contemporary culture, namely the flow of symbolic forms comprising mainstream popular culture. The volume centers on the portrayal of aspects of schooling --its characteristics, participants, glories, and problems--as they are constructed and displayed in diverse forms of popular culture. The main assumption is that involvement in contemporary schooling at any level--as teacher, student, policymaker, administrator, or concerned citizen--is conditioned by the sociocultural context in which schooling is understood, a context that is in turn mediated by powerful forms of popular culture.

Bullying in schools has become an issue of major importance among educators. However interventions to reduce bullying have enjoyed only modest and limited success. This paper examines five different explanations for bullying and examines the strengths and limitations of each. It is concluded that none of them provides a comprehensive explanation for school-based bullying and that their value lies especially in suggesting actions that may be taken by schools in addressing particular bully/victim problems.

How can new and experienced teachers rethink the ways of teaching and learn to embrace and learn from the diversity they encounter among their students? Rather than preparing teachers to follow prescriptions or blueprints, Katherine Schultz suggests that we show them how to attend to and respond to the students they teach. In this book, she offers a conceptual framework for "deep listening," illustrating how successful teachers listen for the particularities of individual students, listen for the rhythm and balance of the whole class, listen for the broader contexts of students' lives, and listen for silence and acts of silence. Listening in this manner brings together knowledge of individual students, an understanding of a student's place within the classroom, and mastery of subject matter and pedagogy. This volume features compelling case studies that reveal the classroom lives of teachers who are exemplary listeners.

Wounded by School

While reformers and policymakers focus on achievement gaps, testing, and accountability, millions of students mentally and emotionally disengage from learning and many gifted teachers leave the field. Ironically, today’s schooling is damaging the single most essential component to education—the joy of learning How do we recognize the “wounds” caused by outdated schooling policies? How do we heal them? In her controversial new book, education writer and critic Kirsten Olson brings to light the devastating consequences of an educational approach that values conformity over creativity, flattens student’s interests, and dampens down differences among learners. Drawing on deeply emotional stories, Olson shows that current institutional structures do not produce the kinds of minds and thinking that society really needs. Instead, the system tends to shame, disable, and bore many learners. Most importantly, she presents the experiences of wounded learners who have healed and shows what teachers, parents, and students can do right now to help themselves stay healthy. “We need to replace industrial schooling with more genuinely caring and humane ways of teaching, and Olson clearly shows us why and how to do it.” —Ron Miller, Editor, Education Revolution magazine “Wounded by School is not merely a technical repair manual for our broken schools, it is a guide to how to revive their purpose, their spirit, and their hope.” —David H. Rose, Founding Director, CAST (the Center for Applied Special Technology) “Kirsten Olson’s book is refreshingly unlike the general run of sludge I associate with writing about pedagogy. I can’t imagine anyone not being better for reading this book—Twice!” —John Taylor Gatto, author of Dumbing Us Down “I invite anyone invested in American public schools (and I hope that’s all of us) to read this book and join hands in building schools that help every student not only heal but thrive.” —Terry Chadsey, Associate Director, Center for Courage & Renewal “Olson questions the appropriateness of school structures, norms, rituals, and routines that were set in place—cast in stone more than a century ago—that now seem dangerously anachronistic and alienating. And she asks us to consider the ways in which we might create more cherishing and inclusive school cultures that would incite learning and love.” —From the Foreword by Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, Harvard Graduate School of Education
