Während der erste Band von »Kultur - Geschichte - Behinderung« die kulturwissenschaftliche Historisierung von Behinderung thematisiert, liegt der Schwerpunkt des zweiten Bandes auf bildungstheoretischen und didaktischen Perspektiven: An der Schnittstelle von Geschichtsdidaktik, Erziehungswissenschaft und Disability Studies fragen die Autor_innen nach Möglichkeiten der Vermittlung und Aneignung von Geschichte. Im Zentrum stehen dabei Menschen mit Benachteiligungen und Behinderungen und u. a. historische Bildungsangebote für Menschen mit Lernschwierigkeiten: Wie müssen sich aktuelle fachwissenschaftliche und fachdidaktische Modelle der Geschichte verändern, um inklusiven Ansprüchen gerecht zu werden? Kann auf einem sehr basalen Niveau noch historisch gelernt werden? Mit welchen curricularen Konsequenzen ist die Berücksichtigung der Perspektive der Disability Studies im Geschichtsunterricht verbunden? Wie können Konzepte einer Geschichtsvermittlung aussehen, die konsequent die aktuellen, gesellschaftlichen Heterogenitäts- und Alteritätserfahrungen berücksichtigen? Und was bedeutet es überhaupt, sich Kultur und Geschichte eigensinnig anzueignen?

Shape and Shape Theory D. G. Kendall Churchill College, University of Cambridge, UK D. Barden Girton College, University of Cambridge, UK T. K. Carne King's College, University of Cambridge, UK H. Le University of Nottingham, UK The statistical theory of shape is a relatively new topic and is generating a great deal of interest and comment by statisticians, engineers and computer scientists. Mathematically, 'shape' is the geometrical information required to describe an object when location, scale and rotational effects are removed. The theory was pioneered by Professor David Kendall to solve practical problems concerning shape. This text presents an elegant account of the theory of shape that has evolved from Kendall's work. Features include: * A comprehensive account of Kendall's shape spaces * A variety of topological and geometric invariants of these spaces * Emphasis on the mathematical aspects of shape analysis * Coverage of the mathematical issues for a wide range of applications The early chapters provide all the necessary background information, including the history and applications of shape theory. The authors then go on to analyse the topic, in brilliant detail, in a variety of different shape spaces. Kendall's own procedures for visualising distributions of shapes and shape processes are covered at length. Implications from other branches of mathematics are explored, along with more advanced applications, incorporating statistics and stochastic analysis. Applied statisticians, applied mathematicians, engineers and computer scientists working and researching in the fields of archaeology, astronomy, biology, geography and physical chemistry will find this book of great benefit. The theories presented are used today in a wide range of subjects from archaeology through to physics, and will provide fascinating reading to anyone engaged in such research. Visit our web page!

This important book provides a unique merging of disability studies, critical multiculturalism, and social justice advocacy to develop both the knowledge base and the essential insights for understanding and implementing fully inclusive education. Although inclusion is often viewed in schools as primarily serving students with disabilities, this volume expands the definition to include students with a broad range of traditionally marginalized differences (including but not limited to disabilities, cultural/linguistic/racial background, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and class). Chapters provide 12 key principles important to developing and applying a critical perspective toward educating diverse students and promoting equity and inclusion. Book Features: Personal stories that make concepts accessible to new and pre-service teachers. Application exercises ideal for courses and professional development workshops. Highlight boxes that raise additional questions for discussion and debate. Interactive, multimodal instructional activities to use with many kinds of learners. Additional activities and resources available online at Contributors: Subini Annamma, Laura Atkinson, David J. Connor, Elizabeth Z. Dejewski, David Feingold, Ana Maria García, Kathryn Henn-Reinke, Jodell Heroux, Kathleen Kotel, Elizabeth B. Kozleski, Valerie Owen, Susan Peters, Julie Ramirez, Maryl A. Randel, Janet Sauer, Stacey N. Skoning, Graciela Slesaransky-Poe, Robin M. Smith, Jeannie Zeitli “A powerful call to challenge rigid school practices that attempt to sort and level students. This extremely clear guide helps us move from critique to action, interweaving difficult matters of income disparity, language and religious marginalization, racism, and gender expression and identity. The authors inspire us to engage in the hard work of justice- and equity-oriented pedagogy and to do so collectively, with humor and with passion.” —Celia Oyler, professor of education, Teachers College, Columbia University “Condition Critical offers a critical framework for valuing and responding to student differences grounded in an expansive view of social justice, equity, access, and excellence. Accessible and engaging, each chapter skillfully weaves together first-person narratives, opportunities for self-reflection, and practical examples of key classroom practices. The result is a thoughtful and inspiring book that does more than critique the status quo, it points the way to transforming classrooms and schools for all.” —Beth Ferri, associate professor, School of Education, Syracuse University

What are the obstacles in the way of effectively solving the environmental crises of our time? What can we do to overcome them? These may be two of the most important questions heading into the 21st century. Organized human societies have the ability to completely change the world. While we have excelled at building, destroying and rebuilding, we have not succeeded at conserving, preserving, and sustaining. Priviledged Goods: Commoditization and Its Impact on Environment and Society suggests that our propensity toward environmental destruction - a tragic flaw of the modern economy - can be understood as a result of hidden economic forces. These forces drive social and economic development towards increasing mobilization of energy and material beyond what is actually needed to achieve general prosperity and meet basic human needs. The author explains the complex concept of commoditization using examples from key sectors of society. Interdisciplinary in scope, Privileged Goods: Commoditization and Its Impact on Environment and Society will appeal to a wide variety of environmental professionals. It explains the key concepts, discusses the history of public policy, analyzes the "appropriate technology" movement of the 70s and compares it to the sustainable development movement of today.

No topic sparks an argument faster among the American public, even with relatively apolitical people, than how their children are taught. In schools across the country, school boards, parents, teachers, and students themselves debate issues ranging from charter schools, to the first amendment rights of students, to the efficacy of the No Child Left Behind Act. School districts in Georgia and Pennsylvania have seen battles over the teaching of evolution; places as diverse as Colorado, Washington, and Kentucky have had debates over how best to protect children while at school. Battleground: Schools provides an in-depth, balanced overview of these controversial topics and enables teachers, students, and their parents to better understand the foundations of these conflicts.

Preschool and kindergarten classrooms are unique settings that differ from the elementary and high school classrooms students experience at a later age. They are designed to help children learn about learning. In pre-K and kindergarten classrooms, playing, moving, and creating are all integral parts of daily lessons. Teachers are charged with designing learning experiences that keep young students engaged, allow choice and freedom, and connect learners to one another. Meeting the needs of diverse students in today's early childhood classrooms requires careful and targeted differentiation of curriculum, instruction, learning objectives, and environment. This six-page laminated guide by Paula Kluth and Jaclyn Beljung provides recommendations for creating careful designed and thoughtfully orchestrated inclusive classroom environments for children in pre-K and kindergarten. It includes a variety of ideas and strategies for >Setting up the classroom >Designing instruction for students with different needs >Creating positive behavioral supports >Making learning active >Establishing productive collaborative relationships with families and colleagues
