The third edition of this groundbreaking text offers a powerful model for cultural ecological analysis and a pedagogy of responsibility. Authors Martusewicz, Edmundson, and Lupinacci provide teachers, teacher educators, and educational scholars with the theory and classroom practices they need to help develop citizens who are prepared to support and achieve diverse, democratic, and sustainable societies in an increasingly globalized world. Readers are asked to consider curricular strategies to bring these issues to life in their own classrooms across disciplines. Designed for introductory educational foundations and multicultural education courses, EcoJustice Education is written in a narrative, conversational style grounded in place and experience, but also pushes students to examine the larger ideological, social, historical, and political contexts of the crises humans and the planet we inhabit are facing.
Fully updated with cutting-edge research, statistics, and current events throughout, the third edition addresses important topics such as Indigenous learning, Black Lives Matter, the Flint Water Crisis, Standing Rock, the rise of fascism, and climate change, and develops EcoJustice approaches to confronting these issues. An accompanying online resource includes a conceptual toolbox, links to related resources, and more.
