This book seeks to clarify postcolonial Indigenous thought beginning at the new millennium. It represents the voices of the first generation of global Indigenous scholars and converges those voices, their analyses, and their dreams of a decolonized world. -- Marie Battiste, Author.

The essays in Reclaiming Indigenous Voice and Vision spring from an International Summer Institute held in 1996 on the cultural restoration of oppressed Indigenous peoples. The contributors, primarily Indigenous, unravel the processes of colonization that enfolded modern society and resulted in the oppression of Indigenous peoples.

The authors -- among them Gregory Cajete, Erica-Irene Daes, Bonnie Duran and Eduardo Duran, James Youngblood Henderson, Linda Hogan, Leroy Little Bear, Ted Moses, Linda Tuhiwai Te Rina Smith, Graham Hingangaroa Smith, and Robert Yazzie -- draw on a range of disciplines, professions, and experiences. Addressing four urgent and necessary issues -- mapping colonialism, diagnosing colonialism, healing colonized Indigenous peoples, and imagining postcolonial visions -- they provide new frameworks for understanding how and why colonization has been so pervasive and tenacious among Indigenous peoples. They also envision what they would desire in a truly postcolonial context.

In moving and inspiring ways, Reclaiming Indigenous Voice and Vision elaborates a new inclusive vision of a global and national order and articulates new approaches for protecting, healing, and restoring long-oppressed peoples, and for respecting their cultures and languages.

Four undocumented Mexican American students, two great teachers, one robot-building contest . . . and a major motion picture

In 2004, four Latino teenagers arrived at the Marine Advanced Technology Education Robotics Competition at the University of California, Santa Barbara. They were born in Mexico but raised in Phoenix, Arizona, where they attended an underfunded public high school. No one had ever suggested to Oscar, Cristian, Luis, or Lorenzo that they might amount to much—but two inspiring science teachers had convinced these impoverished, undocumented kids from the desert who had never even seen the ocean that they should try to build an underwater robot.
And build a robot they did. Their robot wasn't pretty, especially compared to those of the competition. They were going up against some of the best collegiate engineers in the country, including a team from MIT backed by a $10,000 grant from ExxonMobil. The Phoenix teenagers had scraped together less than $1,000 and built their robot out of scavenged parts. This was never a level competition—and yet, against all odds . . . they won!
But this is just the beginning for these four, whose story—which became a key inspiration to the DREAMers movement—will go on to include first-generation college graduations, deportation, bean-picking in Mexico, and service in Afghanistan.
Joshua Davis's Spare Parts is a story about overcoming insurmountable odds and four young men who proved they were among the most patriotic and talented Americans in this country—even as the country tried to kick them out.
Teacher education is at the base of all educational systems. To make it effective, it is necessary to put in place an education system which equips the trainee teachers with the skills needed to enable their students to be successful. This book discusses how to train teachers, improve teacher education programmes and impart quality education. The book is divided into eight parts. Part I takes a detailed look at the various stakeholders of teacher education. Part II focuses on micro-teaching, interaction analysis and practice teaching, which is a natural progression of the teacher trainee’s skill development. Part III addresses the issues and modalities of pre-service teacher education. Part IV concentrates on methods of teaching and techniques adopted.Part V covers the performance and evaluation of teacher education, with reference to the Indian context. Part VI discusses professional practice and ethics. Part VII highlights the importance of research as well as the use of action research in teacher education. Part VIII dwells on the current issues and trends in teacher education. The book is meant for the postgraduate students of education (M.A., Education), B.Ed. and M.Ed. Besides, teacher educators, distance education personnel, school-based administrators and policymakers will also find the book quite useful. KEY FEATURES : Provides a comparative study of teacher education of several countries to put things in the right perspective. Uses flowcharts and diagrams extensively to make the understanding of the topics discussed easy.
