Description - Teaching Justice by Kristi Holsinger

Teaching Justice explores the role that teaching and learning in higher education can play in solving problems of social injustice. Examining a range of approaches to education, it considers the challenges that exist in teaching about justice, drawing on extensive empirical data gathered amongst college lecturers and professors, as well as the author's own experience. With an analysis of the strategies commonly used this book will shed light on the manner in which students can be engaged in activism and concerned with issues of social injustice. By overcoming apathy and engaging students with social problems, education can thus address matters of injustice and begin to effect change. Presenting extensive international research and insightful analyses, Teaching Justice reveals the classroom and the lecture theatre to be important sites in the pursuit of social justice and will appeal to teachers and researchers with interests in social problems, education and educational methods, and criminal justice, as well as community engagement and service learning outside the classroom.
