America's undergraduates truly represent a mind-boggling diversity. Today's College Students: A Reader looks at a wide variety of student groups and identities, which sets it apart from other texts on contemporary college students that do not cover such a broad spectrum. The editors and contributors also invite students, their instructors, and other college/university practitioners to be mindful of the crucial, yet sometimes overlooked, connection between extra-curricular campus activities and learning. Sustaining educational moments throughout the undergraduate experience, in and out of the classroom, is why colleges exist. This volume thus reminds us that both social interaction and individual critical reflection are vital collegiate processes, especially in an age of consumerism and the McDonaldization of higher education. Ultimately, the text seeks to reinforce and augment the rich diversity that can make college more rewarding for us all. It is especially useful for courses devoted to today's college students and diversity, the multicultural university, college student development, and student affairs administration.
The Idea of the University, the first book in a set of volumes from Michael A. Peters and Ronald Barnett, provides readings of central texts in the philosophical discourse of the organization and development of the modern research university. Since von Humboldt's reforms at the University of Berlin in 1810, the early influential model of the university was intended to achieve a unity of teaching and research in providing students with an all-round humanist education. Emerging from German idealist and Romantic philosophy traditions, the Humboldtian university reflected the central importance of philosophy and the notion of academic freedom-the freedom to teach and to learn. Over the next two hundred years, scholars developed this discourse, so establishing a canon of texts which are presented in this reader: Kant's The Conflict of the Faculties, Newman's The Idea of the University, Heidegger's The Self-Assertion of the German Universities, Jaspers' The Idea of the University and Ortega y Gasset's Mission of the University. Also included here are contributions from other major figures such as Sedgwick, Whelwell, Stuart Mill, Arnold, and Leavis from the English tradition; and Hutchins, Clark, Kerr, and Bok, among others, from the American tradition. The collection concludes by presenting writings from Lyotard, Derrida, Bourdieu, MacIntyre, Said, and Readings who were all concerned at the many limitations being imposed by modernity and, in their different ways, held out for an idea of the university built around critical reason. With a full-length opening essay by the editors and introductory notes on each of the readings and their authors, this volume constitutes a unique text in the literature on higher education and the university.
The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive historical and contemporary view of the education of Latinos in the United States. It is unique in that it provides readers with accurate information that will deepen their understanding and knowledge about Latinos from preschool to higher education, as well as in special education, gifted education, and migrant and urban education. Topics such as bilingualism and teacher preparation are an integral part of this thorough and eloquent book.
Among culturally and linguistically diverse groups in the United States, the Latino population is the largest and fastest growing. Thus, to prepare for the growing numbers of Latino children and to make the most of their education, educators, researchers, and policymakers must recognize and build on the invaluable resource represented by Latino students. The information provided is based on current research and practice in the field. Our school system continues to underestimate the cognitive and socioemotional potential of Latino students by its limited awareness and representation of the Latino cultural characteristics, social dynamics, interests and abilities, bilingualism, as well as confronting socioeconomic challenges and educational needs. This situation clearly demonstrates a need for a reformulation of educational practice at all grade levels and for the provision of accurate information to assist practitioners and researchers in their knowledge and practice.
