"This ground-breaking book on pedagogy, research, and philosophy in teacher education expands the imagination of justice-oriented education and arts-based scholarship. Based on a multi-year study of Jones’ use of feminist pedagogies, the book seamlessly moves between classroom practice, theory, and philosophy in a way that will offer something for everyone: those who are looking for new ways of doing teacher education, those who hope to better understand philosophy, and those who seek new ways of doing inquiry and scholarship. Demonstrating through pedagogy, method, and form that we “have more power than we think” and don’t have to repeat what has been handed down to us, the creators critique the restrictions of traditional teacher education and academic discourse. This critique prompts a move outward into unpredictable spaces of encounter where a “maybe world” might be lived in education. In this way, Jones and Woglom don’t make the case for a certain kind of pedagogy or scholarly inquiry that might be repeated, but rather they invite educators and researchers to take seriously the philosophical ideas of Deleuze, Guattari, Barad, and others who argue that humans are in a constant aesthetic process of becoming with other humans, non-human life, and the material world around them. Thus, education – even teacher education – is not about reaching an already known end goal, but growing and changing through multiple ways of being and perceiving in the world. The authors call this mutant pedagogies and show one ethical path of mutating."

Covering key terms and concepts in the emerging field of posthumanism and literacy education, this volume investigates posthumanism, not as a lofty theory, but as a materialized way of knowing/becoming/doing the world. The contributors explore the ways that posthumanism helps educators better understand how students, families, and communities come to know/become/do literacies with other humans and nonhumans. Illustrative examples show how posthumanist theories are put to work in and out of school spaces as pedagogies and methodologies in literacy education. With contributions from a range of scholars, from emerging to established, and from both U.S. and international settings, the volume covers literacy practices from pre-K to adult literacy across various contexts. Chapter authors not only wrestle with methodological tensions in doing posthumanist research, but also situate it within pedagogies of teaching literacies. Inviting readers to pause, slow down, and consider posthumanist ways of thinking about agency, intra-activity, subjectivity, and affect, this book explores and experiments with new ways of seeing, understanding, and defining literacies, and allows readers to experience and intra-act with the book in ways more traditional (re)presentations do not.

This book highlights the unique and co-generative intersections of the arts and literacy that promote critical and socially engaged teaching and learning. Based on a year-long ethnography with two literacy teachers and their students in an arts-based public high school, this volume makes an argument for arts-based education as the cultivation of a critical aesthetic practice in the literacy classroom. Through rich example and analysis, it shows how, over time, this practice alters the in-school learning space in significant ways by making it more constructivist, more critical, and fundamentally more relational.

Learning strategies for critical thinking are a vital part of today’s curriculum as students have few additional opportunities to learn these skills outside of school environments. Therefore, it is of utmost importance for pre-service teachers to learn how to infuse critical thinking skill development in every academic subject to assist future students in developing these skills. The Handbook of Research on Critical Thinking Strategies in Pre-Service Learning Environments is a collection of innovative research on the methods and applications of critical thinking that highlights ways to effectively use critical thinking strategies and implement critical thinking skill development into courses. While highlighting topics including deep learning, metacognition, and discourse analysis, this book is ideally designed for educators, academicians, researchers, and students.

This book takes a close look at places of learning located outside of schools, yet deeply concerned with the experience of the learning self. It explores what it might mean to think of pedagogy not in relation to knowledge as a "thing made," but to knowledge in the making.
