Presenting our Faculty Publications – Summer Special

Capture

Whether you are home or away this summer, we have print books and ebooks of the latest publications written by our academic staff.


First we have a chapter written by Mary Earl available as an Ebook with your RAVEN password:

Religious literacy law and history

Chapter 13: Teaching faith written by Mary Earl

“Despite a sense that religion is in decline in the western world (Giddens, 1991), writers like Gerard Delanty (2009) demonstrate that it is not so much declining as reflexively shifting along with other aspects of culture, in the face of global modernity. This chapter, based on a two year empirical study of how beliefs and practices associated with religions are taught in schools in the UK and the US, demonstrates both the factors which keep this kind of education and vibrant and those which are likely to close it down. Religious literacy is seen, here, as a fundamentally important aspect of education in both countries. The chapter also  recognizes that religious education functions very differently in those two countries  because both constitution (law) and history frame its presence as part of the public voice differently.  As a result of this very different communities of practice have grown up around teaching faith in the US and the UK and although the twenty schools in this study shared some very fundamentally common aims what sometimes seems to push their attitude to religious diversity and difference apart is still the history, law and dogma of the traditions themselves. Whilst it is difficult, as always, to see what might happen, in five, ten or thirty years, to religious education in the UK, it is clear from this study  that the need for religious literacy is perceived across Europe and beyond. What is not so clear is what part schools should have in producing it”  (Mary Earl)


If you are in Cambridge for the summer you will find our next pick in the Library with a chapter written by Maria Nikolajeva. You can find this book in the Children’s Books section with the classmark 028/5 CAN

Cognitive-affective approaches to fairy tales. Written by Maria Nikolajeva

“In this essay I explore the ways in which cognitive-affective approaches illuminate dimensions of fairy tales neglected by other approaches.
Traditionally, fairy-tale characters are believed to be flat and subordinate to plots; however, this new approach reveals psychological complexity that possibly explains why fairy tales continue to fascinate us. The essay offers a theoretical framework and practical suggestions for discussing fairy tales, in classrooms, in teacher training and in research. The essay, and the volume as a whole, will be useful for undergraduates taking papers such as Language, Communication, and Literacies, Poetics, Aesthetics and Criticism, and Children and Literature. It will be valuable for PGCE students, and for graduate students it will provide innovative theoretical platform regardless of their topic, but particularly helpful for those working on media transformations.” (Maria Nikolajeva)

 


Finally we have another Ebook to enjoy written by Keith Taber, which can be accessed with your RAVEN password.

Taber Nature of the chemical concept

“The Nature of the Chemical Concept: Re-constructing Chemical Knowledge in Teaching and Learning” is a book about teaching and learning and the nature of chemistry. Chemistry teaching involves a great many concepts, and these are of different types. Although chemistry is about substances and their interactions, most of the concepts we teach are linked as much to theories and models as to actual chemicals, and this makes the subject abstract and challenging for learners. Added to that, concepts are mental entities so that the ‘canonical’ concepts of chemistry only exist in the mind and in such pale reflections as can be represented (as in texts and diagrams). They are shared in the same way that our ideas of mermaids or unicorns are shared without actually ever experiencing a mermaid or unicorn. The book presents an account of what concepts are, and a typology of the kinds of concepts met in teaching and learning the subject. The historical development of two concepts (potassium and acids) are offered as case studies to show how concepts shift over time, sometimes (as with acids) reflecting what chemists find useful rather than what they consider true. The books considers how concepts are presented in curriculum and teaching, and how learners construct their versions of these concepts as they best make sense of what they are taught. Whilst this book takes chemistry as its focus, similar considerations, processes, and complications are found in teaching any academic subject” (Keith Taber)
