Critical Lessons by Nel Noddings

Book Description

Critical Lessons concentrates on the critical, reflective thinking that should be taught in high schools. Taking seriously the Socratic advice, 'know thyself', it focuses on topics that will help students to understand the forces - good and bad - that work to socialize them. This book argues why critical thinking is necessary in schools because it requires the discussion of critical issues: how we learn, the psychology of war, what it means to make a home, advertising and propaganda, choosing an occupation, gender, and religion.

Nel Noddings advocates a unifying educational aim of producing better adults and presents strategies to achieve this in high schools.

Caring by Nel Noddings Caring, Paperback (October 2013)

With numerous examples to supplement her rich theoretical discussion, the author builds a compelling philosophical argument for an ethics based on natural caring, as in the care of a mother for her child. She discusses the extent to which we may truly care for plants, animals, or ideas.

Peace Education by Nel Noddings Peace Education, Paperback (November 2011)

An approach to peace education designed to help students understand the psychological factors that push people into war and violence.

Maternal Factor by Nel Noddings Maternal Factor, Paperback (April 2010)

If we celebrate the success of women becoming more like men in professional life, should we not simultaneously hope that men become more like women - in caring for others, rejecting violence, and valuing the work of caring both publicly and personally? This book answers this question by locating one source of morality in maternal instinct.
