Comparing Ethnographies: Local Studies of Education Across the Americas (2017)

Edited by Kathryn Anderson-Levitt and Elsie Rockwell

Crossing borders to compare ethnographic research across the Americas is difficult but imperative. In this volume, the editors and authors demonstrate what education researchers can learn by comparing ethnographic studies of similar problems conducted by scholars from Latin America on the one hand and from “North America” (the United States and Canada) on the other. From the volume’s case studies, readers will learn that work done in other parts of the hemisphere is significant and that it can expand the boundaries of their own research and theorizing.

Citizenship Education and Global Migration: Implications for Theory, Research, and Teaching (2017)

Edited by James A. Banks

This groundbreaking book describes theory, research, and practice that can be used in civic education courses and programs to help students from marginalized and minoritized groups in nations around the world attain a sense of structural integration and political efficacy within their nation-states, develop civic participation skills, and reflective cultural, national, and global identities. This book includes chapters that describe the problems that 18 nations around the world are experiencing trying to create and implement effective civic education programs for students from diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic groups and case studies of effective ways that teachers and other educators are working to resolve these problems.

Handbook of Research on Teaching, Fifth Edition (2016)
The fifth edition of the Handbook of Research on Teaching is an essential resource for students and scholars dedicated to the study of teaching and learning. The volume covers a vast array of topics ranging from the history of teaching to technological and literacy issues. In each authoritative chapter, the authors summarize the state of the field while providing a conceptual overview of a critical aspect of research on teaching. Each of the volume’s 23 chapters is a canonical piece that will serve as a reference tool for the field. The chapters, all broad treatments of areas of study, will help readers see how particular areas of research connect with the larger issues of teaching and teacher education. The Handbook, therefore, provides readers with a “20,000-foot view” of the current state of education research.
Thinking and Acting Systemically: Improving School Districts Under Pressure (2016)
Solving the puzzle of school district turnaround to bring about system-wide—rather than school-by-school—improvement has the potential to dramatically raise education outcomes. This timely and significant book will focus on systemic approaches to improving education by targeting the school district as the unit of reform and will argue for new theoretical and methodological strategies. This volume will explore and spotlight the empirical, theoretical, and methodological innovations that have focused on persistently struggling districts and provide much-needed practical information, based on high-quality research, for all who care about improving education outcomes.
