DOBSON, Darrell. Transformative Teaching: Promoting Transformation Through Literature, the Arts, and Jungian Psychology. With a Foreword by David Booth. Rotterdam / Taipei : Sense Publishers, (2008). Pp (6),vii-xiii,(1),1-242,(4). 8vo, illustrated red card covers, lettered in white. "This is a book that supports teachers, teacher educators and educational researchers as they strive for ways to make their work more authentic, more meaningful, and therefore more spiritual. Dobson describes the practices of exemplary teachers, offers a theoretical framework for transformative teaching, and includes useful examples that the reader can readily include in her own teaching and/or research. Dobson offers two innovative methods of teacher reflectivity (Interacting Narratives and Archetypal Reflectivity) and an original methodology of teaching literature and the arts that draws on the insights of depth psychology. Interwoven throughout the book is Dobson s own story, that of an at-risk student who was deeply affected by his high school experiences with drama and literature. The book will be of interest to teachers in all fields but particularly in literature and the arts. It will appeal to teacher educators, educational researchers, those interested in analytical psychology, those interested in narrative approaches to teacher education, and those interested in narrative approaches to educational research. It will be useful in courses that focus on the construction of teachers professional knowledge and reflective practices as well as methodology classes in literature, drama, and all the arts. The book will also be of interest in qualitative, arts-based research methodology classes." (from the back cover). Very good. 40.00
