The current educational culture of standards, accountability, and creeping educational capitalism finds teachers increasingly teaching laundry lists of facts and skills. Less attention is being paid to the 'big picture' or worldview. Author David Rigoni offers an alternative perspective. Using a shaman metaphor, he examines how the most important learning in a professional program takes place between the lines of the formal curriculum. He argues that this worldview change ought to be intentional and that all aspects of the educational process ought to work to that end. To clarify what is needed, the book then looks to educators from throughout history who worked with their students with a total focus on changing their worldviews. These educators, of course, are the shamans.

This is a diologic work that emphasizes the need for exact descriptions of people's statements, feelings, and fantasies, presenting data from individual interviews with the Sambia of Papua New Guinea. Using the ethnographic methods of anthropology informed by the clinical techniques of psychoanalysis, Gildbert Herdt and Robert J. Stoller explore the culture and erotics of the Sambia and the role of subjectivity in ethnographic research.

Addressing key dilemmas and challenges being navigated by students, academics, professionals and activists, this is a vital intellectual and practical resource.

While professional courses and how-to manuals can prepare us for expected events that will occur in the course of our careers, there remains an untapped reservoir of life experience that cannot be prepared for in training or study. These events and experiences give texture and meaning to our work and shape our character. Filled with stories of courage and inspiration, What They Didn't Teach at the Academy: Topics, Stories, and Reality Beyond the Classroom looks at experiences encountered by public safety and military professionals that were not necessarily encompassed in their training or realistically portrayed in simulations. Topics raised in the stories include: A doctor confronting her own debilitating and potentially fatal disease Cultural awareness and safe travel Suicide among law enforcement officers Departmental harassment of a new police recruit Coping with an addicted spouse Posttraumatic stress disorder Life as a K-9 handler The effect of work obligations on marriage and family Conflicts between moral beliefs and professional principles Debunking myths about Islam The book also examines coping mechanisms for stress and discusses the importance of observation, perception, and communication in facing challenging encounters. Through this collection of vignettes and philosophies, the contributors demonstrate that the lessons of life are not taught in colleges, universities, and academies but through hard experience.

Shamanism is not a religion, but a technique of achieving ecstasy through chanting, the beating of a drum and the shaking of a rattle, all with the aim of communing with the spirits and rescue afflicted souls. If poetry is a healing substance, poets are shamans of words, who journey into the magic land of art in order to bring the energy and imagery of dreams into physical reality. Shamans, the poets of consciousness, can heal the soul and thus lead the reader to spiritual rebirth and moral regeneration. The book interprets the poetry of Ted Hughes as a product of shamanic performance, the work of a mystic and a healer – the Poet Laureate who claimed that England had lost her soul which he proposed to retrieve through veneration of the Gravesian White Goddess, the embodiment of Nature.

After Western-Europeans first heard the word 'shaman' in Siberia at the end of the seventeenth century, the term rapidly acquired a remarkable range of meanings in different contexts. This book traces the long genealogical journey of the notions of 'shaman' and 'shamanism'. It starts with the eighteenth-century discovery of Siberian shamans and ends with the contemporary field of shamanism in the Netherlands. By exploring the ways in which the notions came to be constructed and authorised historically, the various interpretations and conceptualisations of 'shaman' and 'shamanism' are interpreted as outcomes of struggles within distinct milieus.

Visit any school in the United States and chances are that you will find at least one of the social studies teachers showing a film about history. Along with the textbook, movies are one of the most prominent teaching aids in the history classroom. Yet, when middle and high school history teachers look for models of the effective use of motion pictures in history classrooms, the cupboard is surprisingly bare. Teaching History with Film provides a fresh, engaging, and clear overview of teaching with film to effectively enhance social studies instruction. Using cases of experienced teachers to illustrate accomplished history teaching through the use of movies, this text provides pre- and in-service teachers with ideas for implementing film-based lessons in their own classrooms and offers a deeper understanding of the thorny issues involved in using film to teach history. Each section of the book focuses on how teachers can effectively support the development of students’ historical film literacy through topics such as using film to develop historical empathy, to develop interpretive skills, and to explore controversial issues. By developing the skills students need to think critically about the past or what they think they know about history, the lessons in this book illustrate how to harness the pedagogical power of film to provide the tools necessary for rigorous inquiry and democratic citizenship. Special features include: "Reflection on the Case," following each chapter, analyzing and discussing the strengths and limitations of the teacher’s approach as well as providing strategies for using and choosing films specific to the educational outcome Sample unit outlines, descriptions of class texts and films, worksheets, essay questions, viewer guides, and exercises for the classroom throughout Discussion of the practical considerations facing classroom teachers, including juggling time restraints, issues of parental permission, and meeting standards
