If the coronavirus does not get us, our ignorance might. The COVID-19 pandemic exposed serious gaps in Americans' education. Did education cause the outbreak? No. Did our assumptions, false narratives about the world, and our willingness to blindly accept whatever our partisan poohbahs said contribute to our woes? Perhaps. Could education be improved so we can better understand the world, nature, public health, economics, and our own government? Absolutely. During the pandemic, thousands of teachers flocked to the silicon sanctuary as shelter-in-place mandates forced schools and universities into the digital classroom. Instructors urgently wanted to know which boxes to click in their learning management systems. The "how to" literature proliferated, and much of it walked a fine line between reasonable adjustments and outright abdication of high standards of academic achievement and intellectual development. A case is made here that education was in trouble long before COVID-19 appeared, and that if we do not make substantial reforms in our schools and colleges--whether online or not--we will be at the mercy of our own ignorance, as the problems of the twenty-first century crash into our lives.

Joseph M. Marshall’s thoughtful, illuminating account of how the spiritual beliefs of the Lakota people can help us all lead more meaningful, ethical lives. Rich with storytelling, history, and folklore, The Lakota Way expresses the heart of Native American philosophy and reveals the path to a fulfilling and meaningful life. Joseph Marshall is a member of the Sicunga Lakota Sioux and has dedicated his entire life to the wisdom he learned from his elders. Here he focuses on the twelve core qualities that are crucial to the Lakota way of life--bravery, fortitude, generosity, wisdom, respect, honor, perseverance, love, humility, sacrifice, truth, and compassion. Whether teaching a lesson on respect imparted by the mythical Deer Woman or the humility embodied by the legendary Lakota leader Crazy Horse, The Lakota Way offers a fresh outlook on spirituality and ethical living.

This book about teaching virtues is based on a fundamental American Indian view that sees the universe as intimate relationships of living things that are vitally affected by attributes called universal virtues. These virtues cross all boundaries and cannot be "taught" in isolation. They are woven into all subjects that are worth learning. Part 1 provides psychological perspectives that underpin the book's approach. Part 2 shows how various pedagogical strategies can turn subject matter into significant relationships. Since teaching virtues is ultimately about relationships, a natural way to embed awareness of virtues unfolds when there is a consistent commitment to teaching virtues daily. Chapters introduce the lesson plan format and the conceptual model, explore the meanings of vital terminology, and discuss assessment strategies. Part 3 realizes the actual interconnections between virtues and content knowledge, with chapters that address social studies, language arts, science, physical education, mathematics, and the arts. These chapters show how the process works to truly integrate content and character education. Part 4 offers an opportunity for profound reflection on the issues and challenges surrounding effective character education. (Contains 75 references.) (TD)

"Lakota Storytelling" interprets transcriptions and translations of Lakota (Sioux) autobiography, oral narrative, and oratory in the context of published ethnography and from the perspective of literary criticism. Separate chapters examine various expressions of Black Elk, especially the unedited interviews exclusive of "Black Elk Speaks." Also discussed are representative stories from Ella Deloria's "Dakota Texts" and the oratory of Frank Fools Crow. The transcribed texts are closely read to reveal symbolic patterns which evoke Lakota history, customs, and ceremonies. Two themes predominate: kinship relations among the people and to the spirits, and cultural survival as an historical phenomenon in the face of governmental repression.

"The five narratives in this book, the third in Julian Rice's examination of the work of Ella Deloria, demonstrate Deloria's artistry in portraying the central values of Lakota (Sioux) culture. The introductory stories illustrate courage in three extraordinary women and Deloria's ability to subordinate her voice to that of different narrators. Another tale, "The Prairie Dogs," explains how the warriors' and chiefs' societies, the strongest forces for social cohesion, came into being." "The longest story, "The Buffalo People," concerns the origin of tribal identity based on such ideal qualities as the strength and generosity of the buffalo and the resiliency and grace of the corn. Following the noted storyteller Makula (Breast or Left Heron), Deloria improvises upon the poetic conventions of oral performance, from simple asides to traditional set speeches of the Buffalo Woman ceremony. Blending careful observation with creative skill, these stories offer new and often surprising perspectives on Lakota culture. They will entertain and instruct any reader with an interest in Native American societies of the past and present."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
