Pedagogies of With-ness
Students, Teachers, Voice and Agency

Across the globe, students are speaking up, walking out, and marching for social and ecological justice. Despite deficit discourses about students, youth are using their voice and agency to call forth a better world. Will educators respond to this call to stand with students in relational solidarity as co-constructors of a new tomorrow? What is possible when teachers and students engage together in new ways? Pedagogies of With-ness: Students, Teachers, Voice and Agency offers insight into the transformative possibilities of education when enacted as the art of being with. Driven by student voices and their experiences of marginalization, this text takes a clear ethical stance. It asserts that students are both capable and competent. Taking a narrative approach, this book honors academic work that is rooted in educational practice. Expanding beyond traditional conceptions of student voice, chapters engage in meditations on three themes: identity, pedagogy, and partnership. This book is an exploration of with-ness, a way of knowing, being, and acting. By centralizing the all-too-often suppressed wisdom of youth, teachers and researchers engage in new forms of critique and possibility-making with students. Editors reflect on this central theme, exploring the dimensions of such pedagogies of with-ness. Through this book, teachers are invited to imagine pedagogy under this new framework, actively committed to students, their voice, and mutual engagement.

Let's Chat—Cultivating Community University Dialogue
A Coffee Table Textbook on Partnerships

2019 SPE Outstanding Book Award Honorable Mention

From the home of the Paulo Freire Democratic Project and non-profit community organization Padres Unidos, the Chapman University Padres Unidos Partnership presents this truly unique coffee table textbook, Let’s Chat: Cultivating Community University Dialogue – A Coffee Table Textbook on Partnerships. The volume presents a collection of community stories, concepts and analyses that highlight the journey of border crossings between two co-existing neighbors: a non-profit community organization and a university. Stories from community residents and faculty members represent how they disrupted the barriers that typically divide us by reconceptualizing how universities and communities can work together to reshape the intellectual landscape and reconfigure power differentials.

Written with and by the community, this book represents a break-away genre that privileges the “voices of the people” (Freire), accompanied by academic voices, in a format that is accessible, aesthetic and attractive to both community and university audiences. Cafecitos punctuate each chapter to elicit dialogue, reflection and action towards defining and developing community university partnerships.

This book will be useful to:
• academics interested in partnerships, public pedagogy, and community-based research
• students involved in community engagement/service learning
• community organizations
• immigrant families who reveal their wisdom in stories about self, others, and community building within the Chapman University Padres Unidos partnership

Let’s Chat presents valuable content in a new and unique format that makes it perfect for courses in: Service in Action; Leadership, Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility; Community-Based Research Methods; Introduction to Asset-Based Community Development; Community Service Internship; Community Leadership of Tomorrow; Becoming and Agent of Change; Cultural Diversity in American Education; Diversity and Equity in Education; Social and Philosophical Aspects of Education; Education and Economic Development.
