toward self-instruction, homeschooling, truth, love, and wisdom. People want to be able to apply advanced knowledge

that enhance everyone's lives. Paradis Publications provides resources to meet the needs of the people

today and that will take us forward to a new, more hopeful, more just future. Check out our books

FEATURED BOOK OF INTEREST TO EVERYONE
And the Band Plays On: A Brief Demonstration and Analysis of Joe Kincheloe's Use of Music for Accelerated and Transformative
Learning-and a Better Life by Vanessa Paradis
book is for everyone who loves music. It is also for people interested in a new way of learning that incorporates music in
engaging, creative, and transformative ways to enhance and accelerate learning.
Teachers, parents, students, college professors,
researchers, scientists, and musicians will find this book of interest. Included in the book is introductory information for
students and researchers who want to learn Kincheloe's advanced and rigorous qualitative research process, the multidimensional
critical complex bricolage. It is not your ordinary bricolage and it takes research and writing to a whole new level. The
process can be applied within all disciplines.
Of interest to scientists and researchers is the introduction to Kincheloe's
critical science of complexity and how he has synthesized enactive, chaos, complexity, and other theories.
And finally, the author interprets
two songs embedded in the writings of the late philosopher-educator, Joe Kincheloe, to demonstrate how he uses music in his
work pedagogically. Following his lead by incorporating music into more facets of our lives in positive, transformative ways,
we can create a better, more enjoyable life for ourselves and a better world for us all. You will never view music in the
same light again. The author has researched the late Joe Kincheloe's work and has applied his critical complex theories for
more than seven years. (Spiral bound, 117 pages). $22
