Dr. Hedy Moscovicias life on three continents and her battle with ovarian cancer shaped the unique co-learning and participative leadership perspective on science and mathematics education shared in this book. This text has multiple audiences a prospective and practicing teachers wanting to motivate their students to learn, science and mathematics educators mentoring teachers to become transformative intellectuals and critical pedagogues, parents interested in their childrenas advancement, and interested policymakers and public wishing to deepen their understanding about learning in general and educational issues in science and mathematics. Two mottos, aI canat learn from you if you canat learn from mea and ato teach is to learn twice, a summarize the essence of her message. The spotlight is on the critical interdependence of factors, specifically human ability to construct understanding; necessity of disequilibrium to spark neural rewiring; cognition-emotion (pleasure vs. pain, even science or math phobia) connections; sociocultural context; dilemma created by the absence of a clearly trustworthy alearning metera for a society valuing objective measurement of quality of learning; human relationships sustained by three Ras (rights, responsibilities, respect); and, heightened awareness of power relationships leading to a spirit of collaboration, recognition of each individualas strengths and expertise; and critical pedagogy.Playing aSus-Josa [aUp-Down ain Translation a Shnilar t0 aChutes and Laddersa Game] The Sus-Jos board game is played on a ...
