The World Becomes What We Teach
Zoe Weil is the co-founder and president of the Institute for Humane Education (IHE) and is considered a pioneer in the comprehensive humane education movement that works to create a peaceful, regenerative, and equitable world. Zoe created IHE’s online graduate programs as well as IHE’s acclaimed workshops and online professional development opportunities. Zoe is the author of Nautilus Silver Medal winner, Most Good, Least Harm: A Simple Principle for a Better World and Meaningful Life (2009), The Power and Promise of Humane Education (2004), and Above All, Be Kind: Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times (2003). She has also written books for young people, including Moonbeam Gold Medal winner, Claude and Medea (2007), about twelve-year-old activists inspired by their teacher to right wrongs where they find them, and So, You Love Animals: An Action-Packed, Fun-Filled Book to Help Kids Help Animals (1994). She has written numerous articles and book chapters on humane education and humane and sustainable living and writes the blog “Becoming a Solutionary” at Psychology Today.
How can we create a more just, healthy, and humane world? What is the path to developing sustainable energy, food, transportation, production, construction, and other systems? What’s the best strategy to end poverty and ensure that everyone is treated equitably? How can we slow the rate of extinction and restore ecosystems? How can we learn to resolve conflicts without violence and treat other people and nonhuman animals with respect and compassion? The answer to all these questions lies with one underlying system—schooling. To create a more sustainable, equitable, and peaceful world, we must reimagine education and prepare a generation to be solutionaries—young people with the knowledge, tools, and motivation to create a better future. This book describes how we can and must transform education and teaching; create such a generation; and build such a future.
Educators, parents, activists, education policy people. They would overwhelmingly be women, liberal/progressive.
Book cover type
This is a book about reframing what and how we learn disciplines from primary school through college. It's aspirational and practical; it's a manifesto with examples. It should express a modern outlook, but not have a tech vibe or feature someone looking dreamily into the horizon. The book is about educating citizens not consumers, empowering kids to find solutions and be critical thinkers rather than great exam-takers and becoming obedient workers. So it's radical, but it's not hippie-ish. You can use images from Shutterstock, but don't buy them, since my company has an account with them. I've attached a file of blurbs to give you more of an idea of what the book is about.
What to avoid
Do not feature teachers in a classroom, or a child looking thoughtful. No pencils, apples, or chalkboards.
