Triple takes on curricular worlds by Mary Aswell Doll( file )

"Writing from the perspectives of medicine, elementary education, and literature, the authors examine what it is like to live and work in a multidisciplined, multilayered world.

Like letters in running water a mythopoetics of curriculum by Mary Aswell Doll( file )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 777 libraries worldwide
"Like Letters in Running Water explores ways in which fiction (prose, drama, poetry, myth, fairytale) yields transformative insights for educational theory and practice. Through a series of intensely original, powerful essays drawing on curriculum theory, literary analysis, psychology, and feminist theory and practice, Mary Aswell Doll seeks to confront a commonly held bias that reading literary fictions is "mere" entertainment (not a learning experience). She suggests, on the contrary, that fiction has immense teaching power because it connects readers with what courses within themselves, and to connect with this coursing is to attend to social, outer issues, addressed by traditional pedagogies, with greater, deeper awareness

The more of myth a pedagogy of diversion by Mary Aswell Doll( file )
5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 315 libraries worldwide
This book uses a nine-year experience of teaching world mythology to art students in order to discuss why and how such ancient stories provide significance today. Myth's weird images and metaphors recall Wyrd (Word), the goddess of the cauldron. Students can be guided into the cauldron of mythic language to feel the stirring of new awareness of what it really means to be human. Psychologically, myth offers insights into family relations, memory, imagination, and otherness. Ecological insights from myth teach the connection among human-animal-plant relations and the organicism of all life forms. Cosmological insights from myth surprisingly echo findings in new science, with its emphasis on quantum mechanics, force fields, black holes, subatomic particles, chaos, and the possibilities of time travel. Two areas often considered completely opposite -- myth and science-actually reflect one another, since both propose theories, albeit in different ways. Myth cannot be laughed away as 'mere' fabula, since, like science and psychology, it has long explored adventures into unseen, unknown worlds that yield necessary knowledge about the place of humans in the scheme of things big and small. The 'more' of myth will be of interest to teachers and students of curriculum studies, to those seeking to go beyond Oedipus and Gutenberg, and to readers who know that all forms of life (including fingernails and rocks) are wondrous, diverse, alive, capable, purposive, and necessary
