About this product
- DescriptionEducation and Anarchy sets in motion a way of thinking about, questioning, and responding to what we can do in the face of chaos, which, whether we ackwledge it or t, animates and drives our relation to learning and teaching. Each chapter addresses different aspects of how we can learn to live creatively with this potential for losing control over what we would master, by providing practical examples and lesson plans involving both traditional literary approaches and also more experimental n-verbal modes of expression across the curriculum and disciplines. Education and Anarchy concludes by reaffirming that each student can provide you, the teacher, with ample opportunities to remember, and to learn from, how you learn best. In the end: education is about letting students learn. Despite pressures from above, teachers--of whatever rank and working in matter what discipline or field of study- are the ultimate guardians of this truth.
