Making Meaning

Making Meaning is a synthesis of theory, research, and practice that explicitly presents art as a meaning making process. This book provokes readers to examine their current understandings of language, literacy and learning through the lens of the various arts-based perspectives offered in this volume; provides a starting point for constructing broader, multimodal views of what it might mean to “make meaning”; and underscores why understanding arts-based learning as a meaning-making process is especially critical to early childhood education in the face of narrowly-focused, test-driven curricular reforms. Each contributor integrates this theory and research with stories of how passionate teachers, teacher-educators, and pre-service teachers, along with administrators, artists, and professionals from a variety of fields have transcended disciplinary boundaries to engage the arts as a meaning-making process for young children and for themselves.

Children s Views of the Learning Environment

The purpose of this research study was to explore the concept of the environment as the third teacher and how students in a Reggio Emilia inspired school view their classroom and its ability to help them learn. The research design chosen for this study was a qualitative phenomenological approach and was chosen to give power to the participant's voice-namely the child. The participants in the study were sixteen students from a senior kindergarten classroom. Data were collected using observational field notes, photo elicitation, and photo interviewing analysis with the children. The children served as both researchers and participants in this study as they selected what is deemed valuable and necessary in the environment to help them learn. Data analysis was done using inductive reasoning through photo interviewing analysis in small focus groups. After careful analysis of the research data, it is evident that the children in this study perceive that their environment helps them learn and therefore acts as a third teacher in the classroom. Twenty of the 85 photographs in the study were taken in the math center, this tells us that there was a strong association with the group that the math center helps them to learn followed by 15 of the photos taken of the communication and building centers, 11 of the art center, 10 of the light and lastly 6 of the drama center. The remaining 8 photos were taken of other areas of the room that did not fit into the pre-existing centers and include: the nature center, the resting center, the office, and reading. The children described that within the centers they were able to learn by using the materials provided, engaging in imaginative or pretend play, making real-life connections, communicating with their peers, and by exploring the documentation on the walls of their classroom.

Rudolf Steiner

This book covers Rudolf Steiner’s biography, presented from an educational point of view and also unfolds the different aspects of Steiner’s educational thought in Waldorf Education. His point of view is unique in that it relates education to a wide horizon of different contexts, such as social, pedagogical, evolutionary and spiritual aspects. His ideas are philosophical (ethical, epistemological, ontological). However, above all, they are based on spiritual understanding of the human being and the world. In many ways, they stand in stark contrast to the views that inform present mainstream educational thought and practice. Nevertheless, there are points where Steiner’s ideas can find a resonance in more recent educational thought. Steiner was in many ways ahead of his time and his educational ideas are still relevant to many present day educational issues and problems.

The Most Holy Trinosophia and the New Revelation of the Divine Feminine

The rising interest in goddess spirituality expresses our current need to understand the feminine side of God, the Sophia (or Divine Wisdom), and her relationship to the masculine aspects of God. Offering a new perspective, the author draws on his own research and on the teaching of Russian philosopher Pavel Florensky, according to whom Sophia has a relationship to the masculine Trinity as an independent spiritual being. Robert Powell discusses Sophia as a Trinity-as Mother, Daughter, and Holy Soul- and as the feminine aspect of Divine Godhead. He connects our reawakening to the feminine aspect of God with many of the changes now taking place in the world. Also included is an introduction to the Divine Feminine by Daniel Andreev, author of The Rose of the World.

The Second Birth

To be born a second time is to be born to a new life, the life of the Kingdom of God, the life of the great Universal White Brotherhood. Two thousand years ago, in Palestine, Jesus gave us the key to all spiritual work, when he said, ‘Unless a man be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God’. Today, the Master Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov interprets these words for our benefit. The water Jesus speaks of is Love; the Spirit, fire, is Wisdom, and Love and Wisdom unite to give birth to Truth which is the new life. In his commentary, the Master Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov shows how these three virtues of Love, Wisdom and Truth, correspond to man’s psychic structure composed of heart, mind and will. Explaining that our physical bodies mirror our psychic being, he shows how Cosmic Intelligence has inscribed the secret of love in our mouths, that of wisdom in our ears and that of truth in our eyes. This volume, which is the first of a series, sets out the essential foundations of Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov’s Teaching and reveals the vast scope of his thought in which Holy Scripture, esoteric symbolism and the sciences of man and of nature meet and complete each other in one all-embracing synthesis.

Holy Terror Jesus in the Infancy Gospel of Thomas

Such similarities raise the question of why the author would want to create a doublet.84 Very possibly, he wanted to include three teaching episodes in the Paidika which would allow him to include the third teacher's praise, ...

Holy Terror  Jesus in the Infancy Gospel of Thomas

The Infancy Gospel of Thomas (or Paidika) is one of the most unusual gospels in the Christian tradition. Instead of revealing the compassionate Jesus so familiar to us from the biblical Gospels, it confronts its readers with a very different Jesus – a child who sometimes acts like a holy terror, killing and harming others for trifling faults. So why is Jesus portrayed as acting in such an 'unchristian' fashion? To address this question, Cousland focuses on three interconnected representations of Jesus in the Paidika: Jesus as holy terror, as child, and as miracle-working saviour. Cousland endeavours to show that, despite the differing character of these three roles, they present a unified picture. Jesus' unusual behaviour arises from his 'growing pains' as a developing child, who is at the same time both human and divine. Cousland's volume is the first detailed examination of the Christology of the Infancy Gospel of Thomas and provides a fresh and engaging approach to a topic not often discussed in representations of Jesus.

about Becoming a Teacher

Education activist William Ayers invites new and prospective teachers to consider the deepest dimensions of a life in teaching. Should I become a teacher? How can I get to know my students? What commitments come with me into the classroom? How do I develop my unique teaching signature? In his new book, about Becoming A Teacher, Ayers muses on 10 such questions (and a little more) to shape and structure an indispensable guide that features hands-on advice and concrete examples of classroom practice, including curriculum-making, building relationships with students and parents, fostering an effective learning environment, and teaching toward freedom. This brilliant and concise text offers a conception of teaching as both practical art and essentially ethical practice. “In your hands is the gift to help and empower students, which is the greatest gift you could ever give as a teacher.” —Kevin Powell, author, The Education of Kevin Powell: A Boy’s Journey into Manhood “Chock-full of entertaining anecdotes, great teaching and learning moments, and hard questions that help inform the highly consequential decision to become a teacher.” —Angela Valenzuela, University of Texas at Austin “I’m excited to add a new guide to my ‘must-read’ list for teachers-to-be. This is a delight of a little book.” —Eve L. Ewing, University of Chicago “Wow, do I wish I could have read this book, not only when I was just starting to teach, but every year since.” —Kevin Kumashiro, consultant

Europa und die T  rkei im 18  Jahrhundert

English summary: The contributions to this volume explore intercultural contacts and the reciprocal perceptions between Turkey and Europe in the eighteenth century. 'The dangerous Turk', one of the most antagonistic narratives in early modern times, lost impact after the Ottoman defeat in the second siege of Vienna 1683. The image of the Turk changed from the menacing, invincible terror of Christendom to that of a quaint and exotic neighbour. The result was a broad, partly euphoric acceptance and blending of Ottoman culture into the political, scientific, economic and aesthetic discourses of the eighteenth century. Conversely, the European impact on the socio-political and cultural life of the Ottoman Empire increased at the beginning of the eighteenth century. From the perspective of a variety of different academic disciplines, the contributions to this volume explore the following questions: What possibilities were there to form an idea of the other and to what extent was this idea founded on autistic self-assertion on the one hand, on curiosity and creative appropriation on the other? What forms of intercultural contacts existed and how have they been documented? german description: Thema dieses Bandes sind die interkulturellen Kontakte und die wechselseitige Wahrnehmung zwischen der Turkei und Europa im 18. Jahrhundert. Die Turkengefahr, eines der wichtigsten Antagonismusnarrative der fruhen Neuzeit, verblasste nach der osmanischen Niederlage bei der zweiten Belagerung Wiens 1683, und das Bild des Turken wandelte sich vom bedrohlichen, unbesiegbaren Schrecken der Christenheit zum kuriosen, exotischen Nachbarn. Die osmanische Kultur fand in den politischen, wissenschaftlichen, wirtschaftlichen und asthetischen Diskursen des 18. Jahrhunderts breite, zum Teil euphorische Aufnahme und Verarbeitung. Zugleich verstarkte sich zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts der europaische Einfluss im gesellschaftspolitischen und kulturellen Leben des Osmanischen Reichs. Welche Moglichkeiten bestanden, sich ein Bild des Anderen zu machen, und zu welchen Teilen grundete es auf autistischer Selbstbespiegelung einerseits, auf Neugier und produktiver Aneignung andererseits? Welche Formen des interkulturellen Kontaktes existierten und wie sind sie dokumentiert? Auf diese Fragen antworten die Beitrage aus der Sicht verschiedener akademischer Disziplinen.

Secrets from MIT  Tennis  and the Umpire Above

Driven by the love for storytelling, this autobiography was written in the form of short stories (based on true events). Each short story creatively and collectively describes the top ten most valuable life lessons or secrets that Tarick learned while growing up in Jamaica and experiencing overwhelming challenges at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Each short story is directly inspired by a unique life-changing experience in Tarick’s personal development, which has made a lasting impact on his outlook toward public service, career, family, spirituality, and the world around him. To creatively capture the imaginations of readers young and old, each chapter expresses vivid connections among film, music, and poetry, which ultimately promote the unmatched brand mystique of Jamaican culture in an exciting way. Through honest reflections of personal life-altering experiences, ranging from depressing disappointments to international accomplishments, this motivational memoir describes the full spectrum of Tarick’s navigated path throughout adolescent life. With his lifelong passion and love for tennis, which is arguably the most mentally and physically demanding single-player sport, this book highlights compelling stories throughout the history of tennis (prior to 2020) that convey how each life lesson in synonymous in sports using historical and fact-based statistics.
