Social Environment and Adult Learning.
Fellenz, Robert A., Ed.; Conti, Gary J., Ed.
This monograph contains papers from an institute on the theme of adult learning in the social environment. "Bill Moyers' Journal: An Interview with Myles Horton" provides excerpts from a televised interview that discusses Myles Horton's life, work, and association with the Highlander Folk School. "Myles Horton's Views on Learning in the Social Environment" contains Horton's comments on his view of learning and responses to questions from a group that viewed the edited tape of the Moyers interview. "Radical Pedagogy: Constructing an Arch of Social Dreaming and a Doorway to Hope" (Peter McLaren) is theoretical in nature and shares some perspectives on social context from the viewpoint of an educator working within the critical educational tradition. "Learning in the Social Environment: A Crow Perspective" (Janine Pease-Windy Boy) reflects on the process through which the Crow Indians integrated their culture into a modern educational institution, the Little Big Horn Community College located on the Crow reservation in Montana. "From an Adult Educator's Perspective" (Lloyd Korhonen, Chere Coggins Gibson) contains immediate reactions to the two preceding presentations. "The Arch of Social Dreaming: Teaching Radical Pedagogy Under the Sign of Postmodernity" (Peter McLaren) expands on McLaren's earlier paper. (YLB)
