Dismantling the Disabling Environments of Education: Creating new cultures and environments for accommodating difference

Peter Smagorinsky, Joseph Tobin, & Kyunghwa Lee

This book challenges assumptions that view people of difference to be "abnormal," that isolate attention to their difference solely in the individual, that treat areas of difference as matters of deficiency, and that separate youth of difference from the mainstream and treat them as pathologized. As outsiders to mainstream special education, the authors of this collection take a more social and cultural perspective that views the surrounding social environment as at least as problematic as any point of difference in any individual. Most of the scholars contributing to this volume work with preservice and inservice teachers and grapple with issues of curriculum and pedagogy.

Developmentalism in Early Childhood and Middle Grades EducationCritical Conversations on Readiness and Responsiveness

Kyunghwa Lee & Mark D. Vagle

In this book, the contributors challenge dominant discourses and practices in the fields of early childhood and middle grades education that are based on the last century's grand developmental theories. Instead of assuming universal stages and age norms, this book facilitates a dialogue about the ways in which the universal and linear notions of development reinforce each other across fields and how the fields can be continually reimagined using multiple perspectives–post-structual, Buddhist, Bakhtinian, etc.–on growth and change.
