Gutman Library Book Talk: Hope and Joy in Education: Engaging Daisaku Ikeda Across Curriculum and Context
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.
This event will be live-captioned! Please contact Myanne Krivoshey (myanne_krivoshey@gse.harvard.edu) with any accessibility questions or requests. Please note that all of Gutman Library Book Talks are open to the public.
