The purpose of this book is to help you, the parent, grandparent, or guardian, help your child thrive in the classroom. There are seven years of business training experience and twenty-one years of teaching experience behind this book to help you do one thing. That one thing is to help you prepare your child for his or her educational journey through the formal school experience. This is your first best chance to take active control of your child's education. Despite a long history of pedagogical techniques and initiatives that started before John Dewey and included Common Core, Cooperative Learning, New Math, Outcome Based Education, Race to the Top, and No Child Left Behind the fact remains that American education needs an effective overhaul. As parents you do not need to know all of these initiatives, this is for teachers; but you do need to know the constant state of change teachers' work within and how it affects your child. Parents can no longer leave educating young minds solely to the professional teacher or policy makers.
Breaking in to the Movies brings together Henry A. Giroux's best-known essays from the last twenty years, centering on important subjects on the cultural studies and pop culture agenda, including violence, race, class, gender, identity, politics, and children's culture. The volume charts his career as one of the most astute observers of the Hollywood tradition, from early reflections on Norma Rae and Looking for Mister Goodbar to ground-breaking analyses of more recent movies such as Pulp Fiction, Dead Poets Society, Dangerous Minds, and Fight Club. By addressing the profound pedagogical role of film in contemporary society, Giroux demonstrates how it dramatically shapes the way young people come to terms with today's most charged social issues.
