Book Talk – Hope and Joy in Education: Engaging Daisaku Ikeda Across Curriculum and Context
October 14 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
The Harvard Graduate School of Education Gutman Library will be hosting editors Isabel Nuñez and Jason Goulah to discuss Hope and Joy in Education: Engaging Daisaku Ikeda Across Curriculum and Context on October 14.
Students, parents, and educators are increasingly frustrated, demoralized, burned out, and discontented with education and schooling today. At no time has it been more necessary to revitalize hope in the promise of education or to reestablish joy in teaching and learning. In this timely and inspirational volume, authors from diverse disciplines consider and affirm the many places across curriculum and context where hope and joy are or can be strong and vibrant. Grounded in the life-affirming ideals of renowned education philosopher and school founder Daisaku Ikeda, Hope and Joy in Education will reenergize educational research, theory, and practice. Featuring contributions from such luminaries as Theodorea Regina Berry, Cynthia B. Dillard, Walter S. Gershon, M. Francyne Huckaby, John Lupinacci, and Anita Patterson, this book reminds readers that the classroom is still a magical space, brimming with the brilliant and creative energy of young people. Hope and Joy in Education was developed by Teachers College Press in association with the Ikeda Center for Peace, Learning, and Dialogue.
