    Helping Educators Grow: Strategies and Practices for Leadership Development, with Eleanor Drago-Severson (2012)

    Writes Eleanor Drago-Severson, Associate Professor of Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, "How can we help aspiring and practicing leaders develop the internal capacities they need to teach, learn, and lead in the increasingly complex environment that constitutes the field of education today?" In Helping Educators Grow: Strategies and Practices for Leadership Development (Harvard Education Press, 2012), Drago-Severson presents a new learning-oriented model of leadership development that draws on twenty-five years of teaching and research with educators from around the world. Favoring the creation of professional learning environments that fully support adult growth, she presents and elaborates on a valuable conceptual framework based on the core elements of care, respect, trust, collaboration, and intentionality.

    Building Mathematics Learning Communities, with Erica Walker (2012)

    Building Mathematics Learning Communities, with Erica Walker (2012)

    Dr. Erica Walker, Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, will discuss her book, Building Mathematics Learning Communities: Improving Outcomes in Urban High Schools (Teachers College Press, 2012). "Drawing on perceptions, behaviors, and experiences of students at an urban high school?both high and low achievers?this timely book demonstrates how urban youth can be meaningfully engaged in learning mathematics. The author presents a 'potential' model rather than a 'deficit' model, complete with teaching strategies and best practices for teaching mathematics in innovative and relevant ways." Dr. Walker also examines societal perceptions of urban students, including their effect on teaching and learning, policies, and mathematics outcomes.

    Making of the Sea: Journey, Doubt and Nostalgia (2010)

    Making of the Sea: Journey, Doubt and Nostalgia (2010)

    Makings of The Sea, is an inquiry into the makings of the Mediterranean imagination in the 20th century. It is prompted by a strong interest that developed from a case of 'personal accident' (being Mediterranean by birth and upbringing) to an academic interest in how the Mediterranean comes to signify a narrative horizon of cultural and political particularities that have often been glossed over by generalised paradigmatic terms such as Oriental and Occidental, Modern and Post-modern. This volume is now published by Gorgias in hardback and paperback.
