Publisher Description

Responding to Hess’ (2009) call to question the classroom and create more controversy in curriculum, an interdisciplinary team of students from Simon Fraser University (Canada) researched and designed this interactive, multi-touch eBook. Each chapter offers a critical view of enduring educational issues including: barriers to education in the developing world, the importance of maintaining teacher motivation, the need for environmental education to foster an eco-conscious future, the impact of physical education, the wealth of health, the value of healthy competition for students, learner autonomy and the development of self-regulation, common parenting follies in education, the power of empathy in the fight against cyberbullying, and more. Evocative and provocative, this text broadens the discussion around the complex and controversial matters of concern in our classrooms, schools, homes, and communities. May you be fascinated, challenged to ask the hard questions, and inspired to see new possibilities for teaching and learning in contemporary education systems.
