My Incomplete Summer Reading List
Suggestions are welcome, please!
Difference in the Classroom
Claude M. Steele’s Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do. (2010)
Anything I can find on the pedagogical value of Peggy McIntosh’s “Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack.” Ideas?
Empathy & Anger
Deborah P. Britzman’s Lost Subjects, Contested Objects: Toward a Psychoanalytic Inquiry of Learning (1998) and Practice Makes Practice: A Critical Study of Learning to Teach (2003)
Ann Berlack’s article, “Teaching for Outrage and Empathy in the Liberal Arts” in Educational Foundations (1989)
Insert affect theorist here _______________.(Please. Really.)
Teaching as Emotional Labour
Arlie Hochschild’s The Managed Heart: The Commercialization of Human Feeling (1983)
*Where to begin? Does knowledge translate from pedagogical theory or fromstudies undertaken in classrooms into how teachers actually practice teaching? What is “knowledge brokering?” Can you “knowledge broker” the Humanities?
Edit (June 19, 2013): This source does not fall under any of the above areas of interest, but as a literature scholar (a student of stories), it sounds very interesting: L.K. Shadiow’s What Our Stories Tell Us: A Guide to Critical Reflection for College Faculty. Thanks are due to Maryellen Weimer, author of the Teaching Professor Blog at Faculty Focus, who reviews the book here, and whose blog is an amazing source for new thoughts, perspectives, and conversations on teaching & learning in Higher Ed. Oh man, the comments! No other blog invites such thoughtful comments as does Maryellen’s.
