John Taylor Gatto’s radical treatise on public education, a New Society Publishers bestseller for 25 years, continues to advocate for the unshackling of children and learning from formal schooling. Now, in an ever-more-rapidly changing world with an explosion of alternative routes to learning, it’s poised to continue to shake the world of institutional education for many more years.

Equipped with cultural tools like cell phones, computers and video cameras, youth are called upon to improvise and construct themselves symbolically in a continuously connected world; yet new teachers and students are still expected to learn and deliver standardized, placeless forms of scripted curriculum. This volume argues for improvisation as an approach to curriculum that recognizes the fundamentally creative aspects of learning that are often marginalized in communities of disadvantage. It provides interesting possibilities for schools that are working hard to keep up with technological, economic and cultural change, and argues for an improvised middle ground between structure and creativity. This volume outlines a two-year research project performed in a Canadian middle school, where school staff used student filmmaking as a way to expand teachers’ conceptions of literacy. It analyzes the response of students and parents as well as the student teachers that brought the program to the school. The improvisational techniques used while making the films paved the way for larger benefits of curricular improvisation to be explored.

SHOCKING, BEAUTIFUL, PROVOCATIVE and WILD A big, bold manifesto covering most of our world's issues, this message feels good and positive overall because it's stacked with solutions that sandwich all problems. It reads easily and surprisingly quickly, yet it constantly challenges you and evokes a wide range of powerful emotion. Recognizing the enormous task of changing beliefs, you feel supported at times through a wild journey and the chapter A Whole World's Dark Night of the Soul offers solid footing in scary territory. This is an impassioned guide to breaking the chains that hold humanity back and an insightful, inciting examination of the juxtaposition between mankind's infinite potential and the limitations imposed by the plutocracy that will leave you vibrating with excitement! SOLUTIONS TO END THE LEFT/RIGHT DEBATE Refreshingly principled non partisan look at politics and the world Our future is our choice. Orwellian squared or freedom. This handbook ignores the rabbit holes and evidences just how moot most of these issues truly are. Taking out the trash from our conversations allows us to focus on the core issues. Socialists, libertarians, anarchists, and fans of democracy alike can all find common ground and answers to valid concerns in this strikingly straightforward set of ideas and strategy. STRIKING DECISIVENESS AND SURPRISING DIRECT ACTION Packing a lot of sense, punch and power to help freedom gain more ground and all of humanity to live happier, healthier lives, The Freedom Handbook also provides fascinating insight into the ideas and thinking of two of today's newest and loudest voices for freedom Luke Denis and Chris Hampton, co-founders of the new controversial media channel Incite Insight.
