Learning often begins with an experience in the body. Our body can tighten or feel expansive depending on different learning contexts. This experience of learning in the body is crucial to holistic education. This book explores embodied learning from several perspectives. This first section explores how psychology can inform us about embodied learning; for example, the work of Carl Jung and Wilhelm Reich devoted much of their thinking to how energy manifests itself in the body. Meditation and movement are also examined as ways of embodied learning; for example, Dalcroze, a form of movement education, is presented within the context of whole person education. The book also presents schools where embodied learning is nurtured. Waldorf education is discussed as well as a public school in Toronto where the body is central to holistic education. The book also presents visions of embodied learning. John Miller presents a holistic vision of teacher education and Tobin Hart, who has written extensively in this field, writes about the embodied mind. Embodied learning is an emerging area of inquiry in holistic education and this book presents a variety of perspectives and practices that should be helpful to both scholars and practitioners.

This accessible text provides a roadmap for producing a high-quality literature review--an integral part of a successful thesis, dissertation, term paper, or grant proposal.

Also featured are excerpts from peer-reviewed quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods articles. This is the first book to focus on crafting different types of reviews (systematic, traditional–narrative, or hermeneutic–phenomenological) that reflect the writer's research question, methodological choices, and approaches to knowledge. It describes what all reviews have in common and highlights distinct characteristics of each type. The book includes dos and don'ts for evaluating studies and constructing an argument, and software suggestions for locating, organizing, and arranging sources. Pedagogical Features *Checklists and "To Do" activities that break down key steps to take. *Boxed examples, graphics that organize and visually illustrate key concepts, and summary tables. *Group activities that invite students to further explore and apply the methods discussed in each chapter. *Detailed directions for using four different organizing strategies: synthesis matrix, summary table, mapping, and topic outline. *End-of-chapter summaries and "What's Next" sections. *Assessment matrices for reviewing and refining the completed literature review.

Die Adoptivmutter, eine Pfingstlerin, hatte Jeanette Winterson zur Missionarin bestimmt. Doch mit 16 verliebt sie sich. In eine Frau. Als Jeanette auszieht, um mit ihrer Geliebten glücklich zu werden, stellt die Mutter ihr die Frage: „Warum glücklich statt einfach nur normal?“ Viele Jahre später trifft Jeanette Winterson auf ihre leibliche Mutter und fragt sich, was aus ihr geworden wäre ohne die hungrigen Stunden im Kohlenkeller, ohne die stets dräuende Apokalypse, vor allem aber ohne das allgegenwärtige Wort der King-James-Bibel. Wintersons scharfer Witz und die kraftvolle poetische Sprache machten bereits ihren autobiographischen Debütroman zum Bestseller - hier übertrifft sie sich selbst.

Holistic education is concerned with connections in human experience – connections between mind and body, between linear thinking and intuitive ways of knowing, between academic disciplines, between individual and community, and between the personal self and the transpersonal Self that all spiritual traditions believe exist beyond the ego. First published in 1988, The Holistic Curriculum examines the philosophical, psychological, and social foundations of holistic education, provides an outline of its history, and discusses practical applications for this type of learning in the classroom. This revised and expanded second edition concisely describes how holistic thinking integrates spiritual and scientific perspectives, drawing on romantic, humanistic, and other radical alternatives to the atomistic worldview of the modern age. The role of the teacher, the issue of accountability, and strategies for implementing the Holistic Curriculum are also discussed.
