Developing Student Criticality in Higher Education

Undergraduate Learning in the Arts and Social Sciences

Critical thinking is a major and enduring aspect of higher education and the development of criticality in students has long been a core aim. However, understandings of criticality are conceptually and empirically unclear. The book combines a well developed conceptual discussion of the nature of criticality appropriate for the twenty-first century, the extent to which it is attainable by arts and social science undergraduates, and the paths by which it is developed during students' higher education experiences. Drawing upon empirical accounts and case studies of teaching and learning in different disciplines, this book critically analyses higher education curriculum and policy documentation to explore higher educational processes, encouraging a re-evaluation of practice and educational values, and enabling the development of curricula which incorporate systematic attention to the development of student criticality. This book proposes a rounded conceptual vision of criticality in higher education for the twenty-first century.

In this chapter we focus on criticality development in student writing. We start from
the assumption that the extent and nature of student criticality depends partly on
the intellectual and personal resources that students bring to university, but that ...

English in the World

Global Rules, Global Roles

Examines different conceptions of English as an international language, looking at world Englishes, native-speakers and 'standard' English. This book also covers the pedagogical implications of English as an international language; and addresses key questions with regard to the teaching of English.

It is precisely the observation of the polymorphous nature of the English
language worldwide that prompted the wish to capture this richness and diversity
in the corpus I have been compiling at the University of Vienna, the Vienna—
Oxford International Corpus of English (VOICE)? For in order to be able to
acknowledge this polymorphous nature you need to be able to perceive it, and in
order to perceive it, you need to document it. One of the most impressive insights
of corpus-based ...

The Valley

A Hundred Years in the Life of a Family

From the author of The Farm, this is the story of twentieth century working-class England through four generations of a Yorkshire mining family

She tells her mother she is going out with other friends, and if Gary and David
stay she takes them to the park as a pretext when she is meeting John there. But
even when Winnie is tipped o by friends, her opposition to John is less erce than
it was. Her confession of the aair with Alf has subtly altered her relationship with
Lynda, and working at the sewing factory has given Lynda more independence.
With Winnie's power over her daughter diminished, her hope and fear are

Planning and the Political Market

Public Choice and the Politics of Government Failure

Planning and the Political Market argues that the enthusiasm for planning as an essential component of environmental protection is misplaced. Drawing on the experience of Britain and other Western democracies, the author uses public choice theory to explore the practical experience of land use planning as an example of government failure. The book opens by outlining the institutional focus of public choice theory, examining the central questions of market and government failure and the theoretical case for government intervention in the environment. Having explored the principal impacts of planning the book goes on to analyse the institutional structures which have produced these policy outcomes. The analysis suggests that institutional incentives within the 'political market' have frequently led to policies which favour special interest groups and public sector bureaucracy. The book concludes with an assessment of the potential for a private property rights, free market alternative to increase community involvement and access.

This chapter uses public choice theory to explore the role of interest groups on
the demand side of the political market in planning. The emphasis on interest
groups and collective action problems is important given the current significance
attributed to the role of public participation within the environmental policy
literature, and collaborative planning theory in particular. In recent years there
has been a ...

Psycho in the Shower

The History of Cinema's Most Famous Scene

This is a brilliant study of one scene in one movie: the shower scene from Psycho. Every other chapter is an extended interview with someone who worked on the original film, or on Gus van Sant's remake from a few years ago. The non-interview chapters take various approaches to film criticism, and refer often to the author and his writing of this book. It's lightly done, but compelling and often very entertaining.

The Hidden Driver of Excellence

For more than two decades, psychologist and journalist Daniel Goleman has been scouting the leading edge of the human sciences for what's new, surprising, and important. In Focus, he delves into the science of attention in all its varieties, presenting a long overdue discussion of this little-noticed and under-rated mental asset that matters enormously for how we navigate life. Goleman boils down attention research into a three parts: inner, other, and outer focus. Goleman shows why high-achievers need all three kinds of focus, as demonstrated by rich case studies from fields as diverse as competitive sports, education, the arts, and business. Those who excel rely on what Goleman calls Smart Practices such as mindfulness meditation, focused preparation and recovery, positive emotions and connections, and mental 'prosthetics' that help them improve habits, add new skills, and sustain excellence. Combining cutting-edge research with practical findings, Focus reveals what distinguishes experts from amateurs and stars from average performers.
