By A Customer on November 21, 2000
Format: Paperback
Noddings, in this book, addresses some of the issues facing our students in this day and age. She looks at issues of school violence, substance abuse, sexuality, etc. from the perspective of curriculum and provides suggestions on how schools could adress these issues based on the philosophy of caring. Noddings is a reconstructionist in her views but in this book offers concrete examples of how caring could be incorporated into the existing curriculum. Her use of examples helps to clarify her concepts and spheres of caring and why she believes schools need to incorporate care into their curricula. I found her first book difficult to read and did not feel that it made her points as clearly as this book does. I would reccomend this book as an entrance into the discussion of what role alternative views, such as caring, could have in our public schools. For people interested in education, public schools, and how to change our students' experiences for the better, this is a good book to read.
