Learning as a Way of Being: Strategies for Survival in a World of Permanent White Water (J-B US non-Franchise Leadership)
Peter B. VaillOffers a thoughtful critique of the roots of management education and argues that institutions of higher learning must teach managers how to integrate the discipline of learning into their very being. Such learning must be marked by strong self-direction, willingness to take risks, and integration of the learning that life teaches outside the classroom.

Practical Approach to the Study of Form in Music
Peter Spencer and Peter M. TemkoLearning music's organizing principles . . . Approaching the study of form as an exercise in perceiving the interaction of a number of discrete musical events, Spencer and Temko's book embodies much more than a search for visual clues. Students of form develop perceptual tools that allow them to proceed from the aural experience to an understanding of the arch-principles upon which music is organized. The authors hold that the organizing principles of a given piece of music may be gleaned from studying: the internal attributes that give a section its specific identity; the functional relations between sections; the ordering of those sections.
Arts with the Brain in Mind
Eric JensenHow do the arts stack up as a major discipline? What is their effect on the brain, learning, and human development? How might schools best implement and assess an arts program?? Eric Jensen answers these questions C and more C in this book. To push for higher standards of learning, many policymakers are eliminating arts programs. To Jensen, that's a mistake. This book presents the definitive case, based on what we know about the brain and learning, for making arts a core part of the basic curriculum and thoughtfully integrating them into every subject. Separate chapters address musical, visual, and kinesthetic arts in ways that reveal their influence on learning. What are the effects of a fully implemented arts program? The evidence points to the following: $ Fewer dropouts $ Higher attendance $ Better team players $ An increased love of learning $ Greater student dignity $ Enhanced creativity $ A more prepared citizen for the workplace of tomorrow $ Greater cultural awareness as a bonus To Jensen, it's not a matter of choosing, say, the musical arts over the kinesthetic. Rather, ask what kind of art makes sense for what purposes. How much time per day? What kind of music? Should the arts be required? How do we assess arts programs? In answering these real-world questions, Jensen provides dozens of practical, detailed suggestions for incorporating the arts into every classroom.
Children, Language, and Literacy: Diverse Learners in Diverse Times (Language & Literacy Series)
Celia Genishi and Anne Haas Dyson''Contemporary early childhood educators find themselves in contexts that are fundamentally inimical to the time-honored wisdom in our field. Children, Language, and Literacy speaks to all of us with a commitment to the very young and strengthens our collective resolve to work in increasingly more effective ways with children, families, and the next generation of teachers.'' -- Mary Renck Jalongo, Editor, Early Childhood Education Journal ''Genishi and Dyson animate sociocultural theories of language learning by inviting us into the intimacy of children's worlds. This book will become a treasure on the required reading lists for early childhood, ESOL, and language arts courses.'' -- JoBeth Allen, University of Georgia, Athens''If our standards-based economy requires us to make all children the same, to drain the joy out of learning, and to move lockstep through a set curriculum, we have forgotten what early childhood classrooms are all about. Genishi and Dyson remind us.'' -- Beth Graue, Interim Director, Wisconsin Center for Education Research''Celia Genishi and Anne Haas Dyson call on us to rethink children's language and literacy instruction in the changing and diverse landscape of U.S. education. That call must be answered, and they help us immensely understand how to do so.'' -- Eugene Garcia, Vice President, Education Partnerships, Arizona State UniversityIn their new collaboration, Celia Genishi and Anne Haas Dyson celebrate the genius of young children who are learning language and literacy in our diverse times. Despite burgeoning sociocultural diversity, many early childhood classrooms (pre-K to grade 2) offer a one-size-fits-all curriculum in which learning is too often assessed by standardized tests. In contrast, Genishi and Dyson proclaim diversity as the new norm. They feature stories of children whose language learning is impossible to standardize and teachers who do not follow scripts. These master teachers observe, informally assess, respond to, and grow with their students -- some of whom are rapid language learners and some of whom become speakers, readers, and writers at ''child speed.'' Much of this learning, regardless of tempo, is found within the language-rich contexts of play. Chapters focus on children's ways of communicating through varied modes, including the use of nonverbal expression; languages such as Spanish, English, and the variant of English known as African American Language; and multiple media. Throughout the text there is a resistance to labels such as ''at risk'' and a much-needed advocacy for child-sensible practices in a world where diversity is indeed the ''new norm.''

A History of Western Music (Eighth Edition)
J. Peter Burkholder, Donald Jay Grout and Claude V. PaliscaThe Eighth Edition of A History of Western Music is a vivid, accessible, and richly contextual view of music in Western culture. Building on his monumental revision of the Seventh Edition, Peter Burkholder has refined an inspired narrative for a new generation of students, placing people at the center of the story. The narrative of A History of Western Music naturally focuses on the musical works, styles, genres, and ideas that have proven most influential, enduring, and significant—but it also encompasses a wide range of music, from religious to secular, from serious to humorous, from art music to popular music, and from Europe to the Americas. With a six-part structure emphasizing the music’s reception and continued influence, Burkholder’s narrative establishes a social and historical context for each repertoire to reveal its legacy and its significance today.

Releasing the Imagination: Essays on Education, the Arts, and Social Change (Jossey-Bass Education)
Maxine GreeneNow in Paperback"This remarkable set of essays defines the role of imagination in general education, arts education, aesthetics, literature, and the social and multicultural context.... The author argues for schools to be restructured as places where students reach out for meanings and where the previously silenced or unheard may have a voice. She invites readers to develop processes to enhance and cultivate their own visions through the application of imagination and the arts. Releasing the Imagination should be required reading for all educators, particularly those in teacher education, and for general and academic readers."--Choice"Maxine Greene, with her customary eloquence, makes an impassioned argument for using the arts as a tool for opening minds and for breaking down the barriers to imagining the realities of worlds other than our own familiar cultures.... There is a strong rhythm to the thoughts, the arguments, and the entire sequence of essays presented here."--American Journal of Education
