Maintaining education as a pedagogical space for human formation, this book is distinctive in looking at the crisis rather than the success of Chinese education. The editors and contributors, mostly overseas and mainland Chinese scholars, argue that modern Chinese education has been built upon a superficial and instrumental embrace of Western modernity and a fragmented appropriation of Chinese cultural heritage. They call for a rethinking and re-envisioning of Chinese education, grounded in and enriched by various cultural traditions and cross-cultural dialogues. Drawing on Chinese history and culture, Western and Chinese philosophies, curriculum and pedagogical theories, the collected volume analyzes (1) why education as person-making has failed to take root in contemporary China, (2) how the purpose of education has changed during the process of China’s modernization, and (3) what a rediscovery of the meaning of person-making implies for rethinking and re-envisioning Chinese education in the current age of globalization and social change. Re-envisioning Chinese Education: The meaning of person-making in a new age discusses among other issues: China’s Historical Encounter with the West and Modern Chinese Education Rediscover Lasting Values: Confucian Cultural Learning Models in the Twenty-first Century Rethinking and Re-envisioning Chinese Didactics: Implications from the German Didaktik Tradition The New Basic Education and the Development of Human Subjectivity: A Chinese Experience This book will be relevant for scholars, researchers, and policy makers everywhere who seek a more balanced, more sophisticated, and philosophically better grounded understanding of Chinese education.

With ever-increasing incidents of youth violence and disruptive behavior in schools across the nation, this is a critical question for every teacher today. According to studies, one of the best ways to encourage a supportive classroom environment is through effective conflict resolution and critical thinking instruction. To help teachers in grades 4-12 achieve this goal, this book provides research-backed strategies and thoroughly developed activities for effective conflict resolution and critical thinking instruction. In addition, it serves as a practical guide on how to initiate conflict resolution in schools and how to link these initiatives with the larger community. This resource can be used with existing content areas or curriculum types with minimal planning, additions, disruptions, or cost. Its curriculum overlay approach integrates conflict resolution and critical thinking into content area instruction through the communication process: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. With over 150 flexible, easy-to-perform activities _ including journal writing exercises, discussion, and self-rating exercises _ it is a valuable tool for enhancing students' academic performance and social skills, and for creating the safe community that is essential for effective learning.
