Description :


A dynamic and inspiring exploration of the new science that is redrawing the future for people in their forties, fifties, and sixties for the better—and for good. There’s no such thing as an inevitable midlife crisis, Barbara Bradley Hagerty writes in this provocative, hopeful book. It’s a myth, an illusion. New scientific research explodes the fable that midlife is a time when things start to go downhill for everybody. In fact, midlife can be a great new adventure, when you can embrace fresh possibilities, purposes, and pleasures. In Life Reimagined, Hagerty explains that midlife is about renewal: It’s the time to renegotiate your purpose, refocus your relationships, and transform the way you think about the world and yourself. Drawing from emerging information in neurology, psychology, biology, genetics, and sociology—as well as her own story of midlife transformation—Hagerty redraws the map for people in midlife and plots a new course forward in understanding our health, our relationships, even our futures.

"The current pause in the traditional structure of schooling (due to the 2020 COVID pandemic) presents an opportunity for openness on many different levels: openness to the science of learning and what it tells us about the impact of constructivist education; openness to changes in instructional practice that align with this research: openness to new structures and ways of thinking about success; openness to greater teacher and student agency; and openness to schoolwork centered around big ideas, design theory and authentic problems to solve. The authors make the case that this is the perfect time to do this work and they exhibit how it can be accomplished. They further discuss the importance of schools making normative and structural shifts to enhance the likelihood that constructivism, a theory of learning, will be embraced, not impeded"--

Description :


An illuminated tour of Walter Benjamin's ideas; a graphic translation; an encyclopedia of fragments. Walter Benjamin was a man of letters, an art critic, an essayist, a translator, a philosopher, a collector, and an urban flâneur. In his writings, he ambles, samples, and explores. With Walter Benjamin Reimagined, Frances Cannon offers a visual and literary response to Benjamin's work. With detailed and dreamlike pen-and-ink drawings and hand-lettered text, Cannon gives readers an illuminated tour of Walter Benjamin's thoughts—a graphic translation, an encyclopedia of fragments. Cannon has not created a guide to Benjamin's greatest ideas—this is not an illustrated Walter Benjamin cheat sheet—but rather a beautifully rendered work of graphic literature. Cannon doesn't plod through thickets of minutiae; she strolls—a flâneuse herself—using Benjamin's words and her own drawings to construct a creative topography of Benjamin's writing. Phrases from “Unpacking My Library,” for example, are accompanied by images of flying papers, stray books, stacked books—books “not yet touched by the mild boredom of order”—and a bearded mage. Cannon takes the reader through different periods of Benjamin's writing: “Artifacts of Youth,” nostalgic musings on his childhood; “Fragments of a Critical Eye,” early writings, political observations, and cultural criticism; “Athenaeum of Imagination,” meditations on philosophy and psychology; “A Stroll through the Arcades,” Benjamin's unfinished magnum opus; and “A Collection of Dreams and Stories,” experimental and fantastical writings. With drawings and text, Cannon offers a phantasmagorical tribute to Benjamin's wandering eye.

Although readers and filmgoers are strongly familiar with Disney’s sanitized child-centric fairy tales, they are quick to catch on to reworkings of classic tales into a contemporary context. The rise is such retellings seems to indicate that readers are hungry for a new narrative, one that hearkens back to the old yet moves the storyline forward to reflect conditions of the modern world. No mere escapist fantasies, the reimagined fairy tales of the late 20th and early 21st centuries reflect social, political and cultural truths. Sixteen essays consider fairy tales recreated through short stories, novels, poetry, and the graphic novel from both best-selling and lesser-known writers, applying a variety of perspectives, including postmodernism, psychoanalysis, Marxism, feminism, queer theory and gender studies. Along with the classic fairy tales, fiction from writers such as Neil Gaiman (Stardust) and Gregory Macquire (Wicked) is covered.

Description :


In Black Feminism Reimagined Jennifer C. Nash reframes black feminism's engagement with intersectionality, often celebrated as its primary intellectual and political contribution to feminist theory. Charting the institutional history and contemporary uses of intersectionality in the academy, Nash outlines how women's studies has both elevated intersectionality to the discipline's primary program-building initiative and cast intersectionality as a threat to feminism's coherence. As intersectionality has become a central feminist preoccupation, Nash argues that black feminism has been marked by a single affect—defensiveness—manifested by efforts to police intersectionality's usages and circulations. Nash contends that only by letting go of this deeply alluring protectionist stance, the desire to make property of knowledge, can black feminists reimagine intellectual production in ways that unleash black feminist theory's visionary world-making possibilities.

Description :


Veteran teacher and author Dan Feigelson raises an important question about the larger goal of reading instruction: while it's our job as reading teachers to introduce students to new ideas and comprehension strategies, shouldn't we also teach them to come up with their own ideas - without teacher prompting? In Reading Projects Reimagined, Feigelson shows us how conference-based, individual reading projects help students learn how to think for themselves. He provides a concrete picture of what reading projects look and sound like in the classroom with: step-by-step guidelines on how to conduct a productive conference categories to help teachers narrow down possible directions a conference could go examples of student work and teacher-student dialogue. When readers go beyond simple comprehension questions to extend their own ideas, they're on their way to becoming independent, critical thinkers who can read any text with depth and thoughtfulness. Praise for Reading Projects Reimagined: "Dan Feigelson is one of our shrewdest and most versatile thinkers in the field of literacy, a guy who can draw from his experiences as classroom teacher, staff developer, principal, and superintendent. In this fascinating book, Dan gives a new vision for the reading conference in which teachers can help students name their own ideas, and use them as tools for deeper comprehension."-Ralph Fletcher "This book contains some of the best writing about conferring with children that I've read."-Carl Anderson If you have ever wondered how to bring more substance, more gravitas, to reading conferences, this book will provide you with an array of possibilities. Dan Feigelson is absolutely clear that he is not offering a set of scripts for conferences; instead he shows us how to help each child develop a sense of the possible."-Ellin Keene "In Reading Projects Reimagined, Dan Feigelson reminds us of a radical and grounding premise, that a truly effective reading conference, one that can change a reading life, prioritizes the reader, not the standards or test prep. Dan shows us how to shine a light on children's words and intentions in ways that can increase their engagement with texts and inspire investment in their own text-based ideas."-Kathy Collins

Description :


Winner of the American Sociological Association s Distinguished Book Award in 2012, Chandra Mukerji offers with this remarkable new book an explanation of the birth and subsequent proliferation of the many strands in the braid of modernity. The journey she takes us on is dedicated to teasing those strands apart, using forms of cultural analysis from the social sciences to approach history with fresh eyes. Faced with the problem of trying to understand what is hardest to see: the familiar, she gains analytic distance and clarity by juxtaposing cultural analysis with history, asking how modernity began and how people conjured into existence the world we now recognize as modern. Part I describes the genesis of key modern social forms: the modern self, communities of strangers, the modern state, and the industrial world economy. Part II focuses on modern social types: races, genders, and childhood. Part III focuses on some of the cultural artifacts and activities of the contemporary world that people have invented and used to cope with the burdens of self-making and to react against the broken promises of modern discourse and the silent injuries of material modernism. Beautifully illustrated with over 100 color photographs in its 10 chapters, MODERNITY REIMAGINED is not just an explanation, an analysis of how modern life came to be, it is also a model for how to do cultural thinking about today s world.
