The Art of Changing the Brain: Enriching the Practice of Teaching by Exploring the Biology of Learning

Image of The Art of Changing the Brain: Enriching the Practice of Teaching by Exploring the Biology of Learning
Author: James E. Zull
Publisher: Stylus Publishing (2002)
Binding: Paperback, 263 pages
Summary:
Neuroscience tells us that the products of the mind -- thought, emotions, artistic creation -- are the result of the interactions of the biological brain with our senses and the physical world: in short, that thinking and learning are the products of a biological process. This realization, that learning actually alters the brain by changing the number and strength of synapses, offers a powerful foundation for rethinking teaching practice and one's philosophy of teaching. James Zull invites teachers in higher education or any other setting to accompany him in his exploration of what scientists can tell us about the brain and to discover how this knowledge can influence the practice of teaching. He describes the brain in clear non-technical language and an engaging conversational tone, highlighting its functions and parts and how they interact, and always relating them to the real world of the classroom and his own evolution as a teacher. "The Art of Changing the Brain" is grounded in the practicalities and challenges of creating effective opportunities for deep and lasting learning, and of dealing with students as unique learners.

Voices from the Straw Mat: Toward an Ethnography of Korean Story Singing (Hawaii Studies on Korea)

Image of Voices from the Straw Mat: Toward an Ethnography of Korean Story Singing (Hawaii Studies on Korea)
Author: Chan E. Park
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press (2003)
Binding: Hardcover, 338 pages
Summary:
From its humble "straw mat" origins to its paradoxical status as a national treasure, p'ansori has survived centuries of change and remains the primary source of Korean narrative and poetic consciousness. In this innovative work, Chan Park approaches this stylized storytelling tradition and celebrates her subject not as a static phenomenon but a living, organic tradition adapting to an ever-shifting context. Drawing on her extensive literary and performance backgrounds, Park provides insights into the relationship between language and music, singing and speaking, and traditional and modern reception. Her "performance-centered" approach to p'ansori informs the discussion of a wide range of topics, including the amalgamation of the dramatic, the narrative, and the poetic; the invocation of traditional narrative in contemporary politics; the vocal construction of gender; and the politics of preservation. Park creates a text that in many ways mirrors a p'ansori performance. Through the multiple voices of scholar, performer, student, teacher, and enthusiast, she reveals the richness of the tradition and its problematic position in Korean culture in the twentieth century and beyond. By positioning p'ansori within orality and the study of oral tradition, she offers readers an alternative to the insider-outsider, subjective-objective confines typical of ethnography, forging a new paradigm of reflexivity that interprets the workings of a tradition "in performance." As such, Voices from the Straw Mat challenges the status quo in many areas of literary studies, anthropology, and folklore beyond the confines of Korean studies.
