Quick Overview

This is a profound look at learning, language and literacy. It is also about brains and bodies, And it is about talk, texts, media and society. These topics are all part of one highly interactive process - human development. Gee argues that children will need to be resilient, imaginative, hopeful and deliberate learners to survive the deeply complex and unpredictable world in which they live. In a world beset by conflicting ideologies that give rise to hatred and violence, Gee urges us to look to a broader set of ideas from seemingly unrelated disciplines for a viable vision of education. This book proposes a framework of principles that can be used to reconceptualise education, specifically literacy education, to better prepare students to be collaborators toward peace and sustainability.
