AFRICAN-DERIVED DANCE PEDAGOGY IN CHICAGO AND NEW YORK CITY, 1931-1946: THE DANCE GRIOTS-READING THE INVISIBLE SCRIPT
 Sherrod, Elgie Gaynell
2022 1-4955-0988-5 516 pages
"In the chapters that follow, I illustrate the dance pedagogy created by Black dance artists in the 1930s and 1940s in America. I discuss the ways in which this dance instruction undergirded the emergence of the Black concert dance construct, which manifested in the late 1950s and took on a definitive global presence in the 1960s with the popularity of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. In this discussion, I document the dance contributions of dance pioneer Katherine Dunham and her peers, whose works blazed a trail for many contemporary dance artists." -Dr. Elgie Gaynell Sherrod

An Encyclopedia of Irish Schools, 1500-1800
 Ward, Robert E.
1995 0-7734-9050-7 272 pages
This encyclopedia is a research tool for both specialists in Anglo-Irish culture and the generalists who would like to know something about the variety of schools that existed in Ireland before the installation of the Irish state schools in the nineteenth century. This volume's importance lies in its compilation of hard-to-find materials that are in archives or in Irish regional or religious oriented journals. For example, little has been written about the suppressed report of 1791 concerning the endowed schools of Ireland, or about the Irish House of Lords' Census of Catholic schools, "masshouses" and monasteries. There is a richness of material that awaits future researchers in Irish education.

Constructing the Field of Education as a Liberal Art and as Teacher Preparation at Five Western Australian Universities: An Historical Analysis
 Gardiner, Di
2011 0-7734-1598-X 396 pages
This book examines the development of teacher education at five universities in Western Australia and note analogous historical developments in England, Europe, and the United States. The authors address the false claim that teacher education has been marginalized at certain universities, which has led to a negative attitude towards teacher preparation. Gardiner, O'Donoghue, and O'Neil analyze the structure, orientation, and content of the education programs that they describe as the ‘preactive curriculum,’ at the different universities, while describing how those programs were implemented and carried out over time. The book is an important contribution to curriculum history and offers new methodological approaches to research the implementation of teacher education.

LEARNING AND CULTURE IN LATE ANGLO-SAXON ENGLAND AND THE INFLUENCE OF RAMSEY ABBEY ON THE MAJOR ENGLISH MONASTIC SCHOOLS Vol. 2, Book 1
 Hart, Cyril
2002 0-7734-6888-9 376 pages
This massive 3-volume work describes the origin, flowering and decline of one particular monastic school during the fifty years which followed the reception into England of the Benedictine reformation which had swept Northern Europe during the middle years of the tenth century. Ramsey was endowed and established in 964, with a magnificent library, school and scriptorium. It was backed by powerful patrons, and Byrhtferth, its schoolmaster, was entrusted to cultivate in England the new learning that had become the driving force of the Continental reform. Starting with Bede’s historical and scientific works, he resuscitated the national vernacular chronicles and assembled for the first time materials for both regional and national chronicles in Latin. He also produced a number of saints’ lives. Abbo of Fleury, the most renowned Continental scholar of his day, visited Ramsey from 985 to 987, bringing with him many computistical and scientific tracts and teaching in its school. Ramsey was also at the forefront of an artistic revival, introducing important new features into book illumination. This radical and intensive study of the School of Ramsey brings all this together for the first time, shedding fresh light on the intellectual climate in late Anglo-Saxon England, with special attention to its indebtedness to Continental scholarship. The first volume is concerned mainly with the new curriculum in monastic schools and Byrhtferth’s important historical works. The second volume (divided into two books) includes a wide-ranging survey of the development of mathematical, medical and scientific studies in England before the Norman Conquest. Many basic texts are edited and translated in a series of appendices, and illustrated by 100 line drawings. Each volume has its own introduction and extensive bibliography and is fully indexed.

Socialization, Land, and Citizenship Among Aboriginal Australians: Reconciling Indigenous and Western Forms of Education
 Nichol, Raymond Matthew
2005 0-7734-5935-9 480 pages
Culturally appropriate education for people of Indigenous descent is not a privilege; it is a fundamental right. Such an education is also a powerful resource for all educators and all cultures. This book explores Indigenous Australian education, particularly over the last thirty years. The major objective is to examine issues of education and pedagogy and to suggest forms of reconciliation between the dominant Western education and Indigenous forms of education. The work is grounded in an ethnographic case study and wide-ranging interaction and consultation with Indigenous Australians. The provision of the most appropriate education for Indigenous students is extraordinarily complex and presents an enormous challenge to educators, in Australia and elsewhere. The implications are profound; continued ignorance and arrogance from the dominant cultures will lead to even greater resentment, social alienation, poverty and divisiveness. The book explores these issues and concerns in both the broad historical, and more particular localized sense, each informing the other.

The Effect of the Covid-19 Pandemic on HBCUs' Academic and Social Culture
 Smith-Ross, Camacia
2022 1-4955-0926-5 254 pages
From Abstract: In March of 2020, the world was faced with yet another life altering event that was viewed as a national health crisis. Silently roaming earth and affecting so many people, this infectious disease, caused by a newly discovered coronavirus, Covid-19, created alarming chaos and changed how the world communicated, worked, and lived. The new normal came with swift changes and challenged our mental, social and emotional state.
Business as usual looks differently at many institutions of higher learning. Having to face the realization that normalized learning was on the verge of changing its persona and wondering if black and brown students would be able to pivot and remain connected was in question. Recognizing HCBUs have always been havens of resilience, being a beacon of hope for "people of color," this pandemic would not change her position. The times would transform, but her glory would not fade. She would continue to move in haste focused on her mission.

What is the Basis of a Rabbi's Authority? Three Case Studies: Rabbi Avraham Danzig; Rabbi Yirsrael Meir Hacohen, The Hafez Haim; Rabbi Yecheil Mechel HaLevi Epstein
 Fishbane, Simcha
2022 1-4955-1020-4 56 pages
The author states, "Max Weber, the well known early sociological theorist, presents us with the three classical types of leadership-traditional, charismatic, and legal-rational. I would like to suggest a fourth, namely the written word. ...I will focus on three leading Eastern European rabbinical authorities of the 19th and early 20th century whose writings both established their leadership during their lifetime, and posthumously continued to place them in the forefront of Jewish life and halakhic behavior. ...Leadership comprehended in rabbinic leadership is that of influence especially for educators. ...The rabbis discussed in this essay were all educators and thus leaders who influenced their followers both through their frontal (oral) lectures and their written works."
