2. No University is an Island: Saving Academic Freedom
Author(s): Cary Nelson

The culture wars as played out at American universities have brought the issue of academic
freedom out of the ivory tower. Nelson, a literature professor and current president of the
American Association of University Professors, offers insightful analysis of the history and
current state of academic freedom, examining what that freedom means in the context of the
broader historical pursuit of freedom from the constraints of church and state. Directly
answering criticism from the National Association of Scholars and other conservative groups,
Nelson addresses issues from collective bargaining to research independence to emerging
threats to academic freedom, including corporate influence and religious and political
intolerance. He explores the legal, political, cultural, and social meaning of academic
freedom for the individual faculty member, the university, and the society at large through
specific incidents at campuses throughout the U.S. and in other nations. At times overly
academic, this is nonetheless a fascinating look at the roiling issues in the inner world of
academia and their
impact on a broader democratic society. -- Vanessa Bush

3. None Dare Call It Education: What's Happening to Our Schools & Our Children?
Author(s): John A. Stormer

Excerpt from the Author's Introduction

MOST OF US would like to think today's schools provide the same education we think we received.
We've heard about "dumbing down," high school graduates who have trouble reading their diplomas,
drugs, unmarried teenagers having babies, and the violence and killings in inner city schools
or in far off little towns like Paducah, Kentucky; Jonesboro, Arkansas or Springfield, Oregon.
Even so, many feel or hope that the schools our children or grandchildren attend are doing a
good job.although they may be somewhat different from those we attended. This book is filled
with examples of horrible and outrageous happenings in America's schools. The "horrible examples"
were collected from teachers and parents, state and local school board members, state legislative
files, a U.S. Senate speech about new-new math which would be funny if not so tragic, newspaper
articles about moral outrages in the nation's schools and illustrations from school textbooks.
As you read you'll understand why the nationally syndicated columnist Thomas Sowell says: "If
every parent in America knew what was really going on in the public schools, there would be
a revolution."

The societal changes engendered by the rapid technological advances of the past century underline
more than ever the crucial need to reflect on the future of our educational systems. Information
and Communication Technologies (ICT) have completely modified our living, working, spending and

teachers and politicians, have been seeking to ensure that children all over the world have
access to an education that will enable them to become masters of their own lives?

6. Ways of Learning: Learning Theories and Styles in the Classroom, 2e
Author(s): Alan Pritchard

Teachers are very good at providing excellent opportunities for children.s learning to progress.
Often, without fully understanding the reasons why, teachers encourage learning in their charges
which works very well, and is a very good approach at a particular time with a particular child
or group of children. With greater insight into what is currently known about the processes of
learning and about individual learning preferences, teachers are able to provide even better
learning situations which are even more likely to lead to effective learning. This book seeks
to provide the detail which teachers can make use of in their planning and teaching in order to
provide even better opportunities for effective and lasting learning.

The first edition of this book has been used widely and has now been revised to include updated
information in the existing chapters as well as a new chapter which covers the area of learning
difficulties and special educational needs.
