Surmounting All Odds
A volume in Adolescence and Education Series Editor Ben Kirshner, University of Colorado Social media and digital tools permeate the everyday lives of young people. In the early stages of commentary about the impact of the digital age on civic life, debates revolved around whether the Internet enhanced or discouraged civic and political action. Since then we have seen new media move to center stage in politics and activism--from the 2008 US election to the 2011 Arab Spring to the Occupy movement. We have also seen new patterns in how different sub-groups make use of digital media. These developments have pushed people to move beyond questions about whether new media are good or bad for civic life, to ask instead: how, under what conditions, and for whom, do new digital tools become resources for political critique and action by the young? This book will provide a platform for a new wave of scholarship about young people's political participation in the digital age. We define "youth" or "young people" as roughly between the ages of 12 and 25. We include perspectives from political science, education, cultural studies, learning sciences, and youth development. We draw on the framework developed by the MacArthur Research Network on Youth and Participatory Politics (Cohen, Kahne, Bowyer, Middaugh, & Rogowski, 2012), which defines participatory politics as, "interactive, peer-based acts through which individuals and groups seek to exert both voice and influence on issues of public concern."...
50 Fantastic Assembly Stories for KS2
This wonderful collection consists of 50 assembly stories, all set in Mill Lane Junior School, a fictional school. Children will enjoy getting to know the pupils and staff at Mill Lane and will relate to the moral dilemmas the characters face. Topics range from learning from experience, listening and cooperation to achievement, determination and courage. Children will relate to the main characters in the stories as they are the same age as they are, play with the things they play with and are going through the same daily challenges as they are going through. As a result, children will be interested to find out what the characters do in different situations, whether it is confronting a bully, or admitting that they have made a mistake. Each story provides a moral dilemma for the character(s) to consider/tackle. The impact of the way in which the character deals with the dilemma is significantly greater as the pupils associate with and relate to the character. The stories can be used at specific times of the year, when issues arise, or whenever you are suddenly called upon to do an assembly. They can even be introduced into the curriculum where appropriate. Adrian Martin is the Head teacher of Greasby Junior School, an Ofsted-rated outstanding community school, located in the Wirral....
The Third World in the Global 1960s
"Historians of the burgeoning field of the global 1960s will welcome the contributions the volume makes." · Choice
"Essential reading for all scholars of the global 1960s. Christiansen and Scarlett have brought together an extraordinary group of contributors. They challenge readers to think about the vector and velocity of political change in the long Sixties era by grounding their work in the fi erce struggles for freedom in what was once called 'the Third World.'" · David Farber, Temple University
"[A]n exciting contribution to the ongoing globalization of the historical conception of '1968.' The global South has been almost invisible in the historical scholarship on this vital topic up to now, and this volume marks an important step forward in the rectification of that imbalance. The individual essays make for stimulating reading,...and fairly burst with new information and insights from histories around the world, histories whose urgency has not dimmed with the passage of time." · Doug Rossinow, author of Visions of Progress: The Left-Liberal Tradition in America
"The editors and the authors are to be commended for creating this fascinating and important volume. By giving sustained attention to the 1960s in the so-called 'Third World,' while exploring the status of the very idea of the 'Third World' internationally, the book both expands and unsettles common understandings of the 'global Sixties.' The individual essays bring to light local conflicts and struggles often excluded from narratives of the era, while illuminating the relationship between national, transnational, and international contexts. It is a vital addition to the accumulating body of knowledge on the 1960s and the means by which the world has become increasingly interconnected." · Jeremy Varon, The New School for Social Research, New York
Decades after the massive student protest movements that consumed much of the world, the 1960s remain a significant subject of scholarly inquiry. While important work has been done regarding radical activism in the United States and Western Europe, events in what is today known as the Global South-Asia, Africa, and Latin America-have yet to receive the requisite attention they deserve. This volume inserts the Third World into the study of the 1960s by examining the local and international articulations of youth protest in various geographical, social, and cultural arenas. Rejecting the notion that the Third World existed on the periphery, it situates the events of the 1960s in a more inclusive context, building a richer, more nuanced understanding of the Global 1960s that better reflects the dynamism of the period.

Immigration and Schooling
A volume in Critical Constructions: Studies on Education and Society Series Editor: Curry Stephenson Malott, West Chester University of Pennsylvania At the time of Obama's draconian anti-immigrant policies leading to massive deportation of undocumented, poor immigrants of color, there could not be a more timely and important book than this edited volume, which critically examines ways in which immigration, race, class, language, and gender issues intersect and impact the life of many immigrants, including immigrant students. This book documents the journey, many success-stories, as well as stories that expose social inequity in schools and U.S. society. Further, this book examines issues of social inequity and resource gaps shaping the relations between affluent and poor-working class students, including students of color. Authors in this volume also critically unpack anti-immigrant policies leading to the separation of families and children. Equally important, contributors to this book unveil ways and degree to which xenophobia and linguicism have affected immigrants, including immigrant students and faculty of color, in both subtle and overt ways, and the manner in which many have resisted these forms of oppression and affirmed their humanity. Lastly, chapters in this much-needed and well-timed volume have pointed out the way racism has limited life chances of people of color, including students of color, preventing many of them from fulfilling their potential succeeding in schools and society at large....
Sociology of Self-Knowledge
This Fall 2004/Spring 2005 (III, 1&2) double-issue of Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge demonstrates the extent to which the sociology of self-knowledge as advanced by this journalfrom its inception can serve as both a course topic as well as a pedagogical strategy in teaching sociology and related subjects. The issue includes student papers of various faculty at UMass Boston and a symposium of student (and faculty) papers organized by Khaldoun Samman from Macalester College. Samman had earlier taken the step of turning his senior seminar into a course on the sociology of self-knowledge and encouraging his students, all graduating seniors at Macalester, to subject their own lives and "troubles" to their sociological imaginations. The student papers included in the issue as a whole are highly demonstrative of how self and socially critical and liberating the sociology of self-knowledge can be. Authors use a variety of class and outside readings, as well as films and documentaries, to explore in-depth currently unresolved issues in their lives, while making every effort to move in-depth to relate their personal troubles to broader public issues. Contributors include: Deborah D'Isabel, Claudia Contreras, Katherine Heller, Rebecca Tink, Caitlin Farren, Haing Kao, Harold Muriaty, Rachel A. DeFilippis, Lee Kang Woon, N.I.B., Sharon Brown, Jennifer Lambert, Anonymous, Jorge Capetillo-Ponce, Khaldoun Samman (also as journal issue guest editor), Ellen Corrigan, Jeremy Cover, Jesse Mortenson, Jessica Sawyer, and Mohammad Tamdgidi (also as journal editor-in-chief). Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge is a publication of OKCIR: The Omar Khayyam Center for Integrative Research in Utopia, Mysticism, and Science (Utopystics).
