More Description

The Cinema of Small Nations is the first major analysis of small national cinemas, comprising 12 case studies of small national--and sub national--cinemas from around the world, including Ireland, Denmark, Iceland, Scotland, Bulgaria, Tunisia, Burkina Faso, Cuba, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and New Zealand. Written by an array of distinguished and emerging scholars, the case studies provide detailed analyses of the particular cinema in question, with an emphasis on the last decade, considering both institutional and textual issues relevant to the national dimension of each cinema. While each chapter offers an in-depth analysis of an individual cinema, the book as a whole provides the basis for a broader and more properly comparative understanding of small or minor national cinemas and their increasing significance within the international domain of moving image production, distribution, and consumption.

Teaching What They Learn, Learning What They Live: How Teachers' Personal Histories Shape Their Professional Development (Hardcover) By Olsen, Brad Review Reads like a fast-paced novel revealing layers of complexity Brad Olsen's intelligent book takes on the growth and development of beginning teachers, focusing on a broader view of what counts as teacher knowledge His analysis is grounded in two years of investigation providing us with a cogent, interesting and provocative explanation of the significant questions that he poses. His book enriches us all about the work that needs to be accomplished to improve teaching, teacher education, and, ultimately, our schools. from the foreword by Ann Lieberman Product Description Teaching What They Learn, Learning What They Live explores the multiple social, political, and epistemological domains that comprise learning-to-teach. Based on a study of eight beginning English teachers at four different university teacher preparation programs, this book examines how beginning teachers personal dispositions and conceptions combine with their preparation programs professional knowledge and contexts to form their subsequent understandings of, and approaches toward, teaching. Brad Olsen recasts teacher learning as a continuous, situated, identity process in which prior experiences produce deeply embedded ways of viewing the world that go on to organize current/future experience into meaning. Since experience shapes learning and everyone acquires different sets of experience, no individual teacher s knowledge is exactly like another s. Yet Olsen also shows that the process by which teachers construct professional knowledge is common: the what of teacher knowledge varies, but the how remains the same.
