The transcendentalists by Barbara L Packer( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Barbara L. Packer's long essay "The Transcendentalists" is widely acknowledged by scholars of nineteenth-century American literary history as the best-written, most comprehensive treatment to date of Transcendentalism. Previously existing only as part of a volume in the magisterial Cambridge History of American Literature, it will now be available for the first time in a stand-alone edition. Packer presents Transcendentalism as a living movement, evolving out of such origins as New England Unitarianism and finding early inspiration in European Romanticism. Transcendentalism changed religious beliefs, philosophical ideas, literary styles, and political allegiances. In addition, it was a social movement whose members collaborated on projects and formed close personal ties. Transcendentalism contains vigorous thought and expression throughout, says Packer; only a study of the entire movement can explain its continuing sway over American thought. Through fresh readings of both the essential Transcendentalist texts and the best current scholarship, Packer conveys the movement's genuine expectations that its radical spirituality not only would lead to personal perfection but also would inspire solutions to such national problems as slavery and disfranchisement. Here is Transcendentalism in whole, with Emerson, Thoreau, and Fuller restored to their place alongside such contemporaries as Bronson Alcott, George Ripley, Jones Very, Theodore Parker, James Freeman Clarke, Orestes Brownson, and Frederick Henry Hedge. - Publisher

Promoting Successful Mainstream Experiences for Hearing-Impaired Elementary Students Through Inservice Training, Peer Mentoring, and Pragmatics Groups by Barbara L Packer( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This practicum attempted to promote teacher and student sensitivity to seven mainstreamed, oral, elementary school children with hearing impairments. It also aimed to promote more social interaction between students with impaired hearing and those with normal hearing and to effect a more comfortable transition from a special school to the mainstream school for hearing-impaired students. Inservice training was provided for teachers and normal hearing students concerning hearing loss and its communication correlates. In addition, parent support meetings were held, hearing "buddies" were provided for each hearing-impaired student, and a weekly pragmatics group was held for hearing-impaired students to allow them to practice the appropriate use of social language. Improvement was measured in pre- and post-tests administered to the normal-hearing students and their teachers. Although practicum goals were not achieved, social interactions between hearing-impaired and other students increased by 14 percent over initial observation. Appendices include student and teacher questionnaires, various forms used, and summaries of the three pragmatics groups. (Contains 27 references.) (Author/DB)

Improving Writing Skills in Speech-Language Pathology Graduate Students Through a Clinical Writing Course by Barbara L Packer( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This practicum sought to improve the clinical writing skills of speech-language pathology graduate students, through the development and implementation of a pilot course. The problem of poor or inadequate clinical report writing skills resulted in an excessive time lapse between client contact and receipt of a final clinical report documenting results and recommendations. Findings from the literature regarding problems in report writing were reviewed. A clinical writing course was then designed and implemented for 60 students. The course format utilized a combination of lecture, discussion, providing sample reports, critiquing clinical writing, microtheme strategies, and journal writing in order to bring about change in students' writing content and style. Goals included reduction in report turnaround time, fewer rewrites of clinical reports, and fewer supervisor notations for each initial report draft. Practicum results were positive, although projected outcomes were not met. It is recommended that a clinical writing course be offered for one semester as part of the master's program for speech-language pathology students and that a sample report book be made available for speech-language students. Appendices offer a course syllabus and examples of microtheme assignments. (Contains 28 references.) (Sw)
