The Changing Landscape Of Hebraica Cataloging, Daniel Lovins Dec 2008

The Changing Landscape Of Hebraica Cataloging, Daniel Lovins

Judaica Librarianship

Hebraica catalogers, like other librarians, are witnessing a major shift in their profession. Catalog records for physical objects in the library are increasingly giving way to metadata for digital objects on the web. The RLG Union Catalog, a mainstay of Hebraica cataloging since 1988, has been absorbed into OCLC's WorldCat. Rapid advances in information technology are driving the development of a new international cataloging code, the introduction of multiple languages and scripts in online authority records, and the emergence of a "Virtual International Authority File." While these changes are redefining the kind of work Hebraica catalogers are engaged in ...

No Disneyland: Biography And Bibliography Of Rabbi Shimeon Brisman (1920–2004), Roger S. Kohn Dec 2008

No Disneyland: Biography And Bibliography Of Rabbi Shimeon Brisman (1920–2004), Roger S. Kohn

Judaica Librarianship

Shimeon Brisman (1920–2004), a Holocaust survivor, lived in Los Angeles from 1954 to 1988. This article focuses first on his efforts to build a strong Jewish Studies collection at the University of California, Los Angeles. These efforts began with the purchase of the stock of a defunct bookstore in Jerusalem in the early 1960s, and they continued through significant and strategic purchases that he made over the following two decades. Brisman, a very private person, is remembered by friends and colleagues, and their recollections reveal glimpses of his personality. Brisman, the scholar, is remembered via an analysis of the ...


Operating Under Erasure: Race/Language/Identity, Awad Ibrahim Dec 2008

Operating Under Erasure: Race/Language/Identity, Awad Ibrahim

Comparative and International Education / Éducation Comparée et Internationale

Based on a critical ethnographic research project, this paper is about the impact of becoming Black on ESL learning; that is, the interrelation between identity formation, identification, race, culture and second language learning. It contends that a group of French-speaking immigrant and refugee continental francophone African youths who are attending an urban Franco-Ontarian high school in south- western Ontario, Canada, enters, so to speak, a social imaginary, a discursive space in which they are already imagined, constructed, and thus treated as Blacks by hegemonic discourses and groups. This imaginary is directly implicated in whom they identify with (Black America), which ...

Learning To Teach, Learning To Play The Game: A Case Study Of A Minority Teacher Candidate Teaching For Equity, Diversity And Social Justice, Andrew M. A. Allen Dec 2008

Learning To Teach, Learning To Play The Game: A Case Study Of A Minority Teacher Candidate Teaching For Equity, Diversity And Social Justice, Andrew M. A. Allen

Comparative and International Education / Éducation Comparée et Internationale

In this article, the author explores the premise that possibilities for social change in an antiracist teacher education program might be revealed by closely examining the struggles and real life experiences of a beginning teacher from a minority background working from the margins of the educational setting. Focusing on the quality of the teaching-learning activities being negotiated and forged, this article is grounded in a study of the tensions, dilemmas and conflicts experienced by teacher candidates learning to teach for social justice. The study revealed that the inherent tensions caused by discontinuities between the intent and critical antiracist philosophy of ...

Negotiating Tensions And Roles In International Development: A Workshop For Graduate Students, Jennifer Hales

Comparative and International Education / Éducation Comparée et Internationale

This paper presents the findings from a qualitative research study involving graduate students who are studying or working in international development. The students participated in an activity-based workshop during which they reflected on and discussed their tensions and concerns about the nature of international development and their roles and positions in this work. Tensions ranged from those on a personal level, where students questioned their individual privilege and power in international development, to those on a structural level, where students questioned the overall nature of development practices.

The workshop activities, designed by the author and based on a global education ...

Globalization And Post-Secondary Education Policy In Canada:A Review Of Trends, Dale Kirby Dec 2008

Globalization And Post-Secondary Education Policy In Canada:A Review Of Trends, Dale Kirby

Comparative and International Education / Éducation Comparée et Internationale

In 2005, provincial governments in Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador each commissioned comprehensive public post-secondary education and training system reviews. While there are considerable differences between the systems and policy approaches in these jurisdictions, the final reports of each of these reviews provide an interesting repository of current post-secondary policy tendencies in Canada. The principal arguments and recommendations put forward in the review reports demonstrate the pervasive influence of economic globalization and the continuing shift to a more utilitarian and market-oriented ideological outlook on post-secondary education’s raison d'être. The policies advocated by both reviews illustrate, to varying ...

Imbedding Christian Values In The Public Education Setting: Creating A Democratic Classroom Environment, Brook N. Macmillan Nov 2008

Imbedding Christian Values In The Public Education Setting: Creating A Democratic Classroom Environment, Brook N. Macmillan

Christian Perspectives in Education

This article supports the need for Christian education in the sustainment of democracy and discusses the opportunity for Christian values to be implicitly imbedded into classroom through the creation of a democratic forum. This nation was founded on Christian principles. While the basis of today’s public education setting includes a basic understanding of the core skills (reading, writing and basic arithmetic), these skills alone are not enough for a student to achieve success. A student must also learn, through the education and spiritual process, courage, confidence and life skills in order to survive in today’s society. Furthermore, the ...


The Teaching And Learning Cycle: Integrating Curriculum, Instruction, And Assessment, Donna L. Jones Nov 2008

The Teaching And Learning Cycle: Integrating Curriculum, Instruction, And Assessment, Donna L. Jones

Christian Perspectives in Education

The philosophies of educators and government entities guide the teaching and learning cycle of curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The educator’s worldview plays an important part in developing these concepts which is demonstrated throughout history. Studying the history of the educational philosophers reveals their beliefs about curriculum, instruction, and assessments and the effects on education today. It shows the importance of integrating all three concepts in the educational process creating the teaching and learning cycle.
