Educational Foundations, v5 n2 Spr 1991
This theme issue of "Educational Foundations" presents five articles on topics ranging from moral concern in matters such as textbook controversies to the politics of society. Additionally, three of the articles focus on the teaching and learning of adults. Kenneth D. Benne's article, "Toward a Moral Basis for Politics and a Political Basis for Morality," is the published version of his R. Freeman Butts Lecture from the 1990 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Studies Association. In "Experiencing Teaching: Viewing and Re-Viewing Education 429" Ann Berlak shares self-reflections as an "experiencing" teacher. In "New Perspectives on Community and Self: Implications of Constructing History: A Case Study" Rae W. Rohfeld and Joan N. Burstyn present a study of a cooperative, community history project that produced experiential adult learning that was instrumental, dialogic, or self-reflective. In "Teaching Social Foundations to Undergraduates: The Importance of Instructor's Educational Training" Linda Spatig and Robert Bickel report on research which indicates that faculty with foundations training orient their classes toward an interpretative, normative, and critical study of educational issues. In "Repressive Pluralism" Joseph Watras examines textbook controversies and argues that focusing primarily on the legal issues of individual rights and academic freedom produces a repressive pluralism that prevents an examination of the larger social purpose of schooling.
