Promising Practices in Indigenous Teacher Education

Author: Paul Whitinui
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9789811064005
Release Date: 2017-10-28
Genre: Education

This book provides a comprehensive overview of navigating the on-going systemic challenges, hardships, and problems facing many indigenous teacher education programs today, helping to foster a commitment to developing quality indigenous teacher education programs that are sustainable, distinctive and excellent. However, despite a growing cadre of indigenous peoples working in teacher education, there is still a noticeable gap between the uptake of what is being taught in conventional teacher education programs, and how this translates to what we see student teachers doing in the classroom. The often tricky and complex nature of indigenous teacher education programming also means that there are multiple realities, approaches and pathways that require greater communication, collaboration, and cooperation. The very nature of this complexity, the book suggests, requires a strength-based and future-focused approach built on trust, integrity, courage and respect for indigeneity, as well as an understanding of what it means to be indigenous. The examples and experiences presented identify a number of promising practices that work well in current indigenous teacher education programs and beyond. By promoting a greater appreciation for the inclusion of culturally relevant practices in teacher education, the book aims to breathe new life into the hopes, dreams, and aspirations of indigenous teacher education programs moving forward.

Einmal auf der Insel angelangt, verbrachten sie ihre Exilzeit dort unter gegensatzlichen Umstanden und verliessen Mallorca spatestens 1936, als der Spanische Burgerkrieg anfing und sie sich gewissermassen wieder auf der "falschen" Seite befanden. Ihre Inselerlebnisse haben sie z.T. auch literarisch verarbeitet: Otten und Thelen in den Romanen Torquemadas Schatten und Die Insel des zweiten Gesichts, Blei in einem Romanfragment mit dem Titel "Lydwina" und Arendt in Gedichten. In Manns Emigrantenroman Der Vulkan und Brills unveroffentlichtem Romanmanuskript "Schmelztiegel" hat sich die Insel ebenfalls niedergeschlagen. Die vorliegende Studie setzt sich das Ziel, dieses unbekannte Kapitel in der deutschen Exilforschung aufzuarbeiten. Dabei werden die naheren Umstande der Exilzeit auf Mallorca beleuchtet und die erwahnten Werke analysiert. Zu einem grossen Teil stutzt sich diese Studie auf unveroffentlichte Quellen.
