Dear Maxine: Letters from the Unfinished Conversation

Paperback
Robert Lake has brought together the various pieces of Maxine Greene's life in these pages: Here are teachers, dancers, graphic artists, educational philosophers, and others. No one in these pages is content with things as they are; we have learned from life and from Maxine that there are always unanswered questions. -From the Foreword by Sonia Nieto, Professor Emerita, University of Massachusetts, Amherst. This collection brings together a prestigious group of individuals who have wondered, looked at, revised, acted, questioned, and changed their world because of their connection to American philosopher Maxine Greene. Teachers, students, colleagues, artists, and others, such as Gloria Ladson-Billings, Herb Kohl, Mike Rose, Deborah Meier, and William Ayers, have written edgy, thoughtful letters addressed to Greene about her work, their own, and the spaces in between. Rather than just thanking this master philosopher/teacher, each sets out to discover what they have learned from Maxine Greene and to discuss the continued relevance of her work in aesthetics, education, and social imagination.| Robert Lake has brought together the various pieces of Maxine Greene's life in these pages: Here are teachers, dancers, graphic artists, educational philosophers, and others.
