Book Title: Rituals and student identity in education: Ritual critique for a new pedagogy

Author: Richard A. Quantz

Book Description:

I had the pleasure of studying with Professor Richard Quantz during the first semester of my master's program. The course was called "Introduction to Multicultural Education," and it was the first time I had encountered ideas that made critique the very enterprise of schooling. Richard made a point of encouraging my writing, and I decided then and there to eventually pursue a doctoral degree. His respect for the nonrational aspects of schooling has helped me think about mathematics teaching and learning in new and more hopeful ways. By building on Richard's scholarship I have made progress in reconciling competing paradigms. This has helped me rediscover the joy and wonder of conducting inquiry in the field of mathematics education.
