Shevock, Daniel J. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020

Bradley, Deborah; Goble, J. Scott – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020
What can be done to re-orient a field of education like music, when far too many teachers teach the way they were taught using traditional procedures that stupefy and deaden students to the subject matter, rather than working creatively to invigorate and empower them to become thoughtfully engaged, independent music makers? The essays in this…

Regelski, Thomas A. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020
The Tractate was written following the first meeting of leading music education scholars in Buffalo. It was not, however intended as a scholarly essay.

Waldron, Janice; Veblen, Kari K. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020
First established in Scotland in the 1870s, civilian Scottish Pipe Bands are now a global intergenerational phenomenon. In Canada, they are a diasporic reminder of the 70,000 Scots who emigrated there in the 19th century. Currently, there are more SPBs per capita in Canada than any country outside of Scotland, with an estimated 240 civilian SPBs…

Stark, Jody – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2020
This article explores Dewey's theory of experience and its potential as a theoretical tool to notice, and make sense of, music teacher learning. Beginning with the assumption that music teachers' capacity to grow professionally is integral for change in the field of music education, I present several illustrative examples of how Dewey's theory…

Giroux, Henry A. – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019

Matias Recharte – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2019
Music, considered as a field of discourse, has important implications for how educators think and act within their classrooms. Based on the work of Ruben Gaztambide-Fernandez, Murray R.

In 1963--a racially-charged time in the United States--James Baldwin delivered "A Talk to Teachers," urging educators to engage youth in difficult conversations about current events. We concur with Giroux (2011, 2019) that political forces influence our educational spaces and that classrooms should not be viewed as apolitical, but…
