Learning and Leading In the 21st Century, Yolanda Medina

November 24
3:00 PM — 4:00 PM
S-510 D

Yolanda Medina, co-editor of Critical Essays on Teaching, Learning, and Leading in the 21st century, will discuss her work on the collection.
This edited volume is a social foundations of education reader aimed at undergraduate and graduate students in introductory foundations of education classes. Most states require that all teacher education students applying for initial and advanced licensure have such a course on their transcript. Currently, there are very few contemporary readers available that provide a broad view of the issues typically addressed in an introductory foundations course. Of those readers available, most provide a generic, and typically, conservative perspective on schools and classrooms that do little to challenge students to consider the important role of critical theory and critical pedagogy in the pursuit of social justice and the creation of school environments that are responsive to issues of equity and diversity. This book provides a “different lens” through which students can view teaching, learning and leading in 21st century schools.
