The mind at work : valuing the intelligence of the American worker by Mike Rose( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 1,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Mind at Work is an reassessment of American labor. Testimonials to physical work have always celebrated the dignity, economic and moral value, even nobility of blue-collar labor, but rarely the thought required to get the job done right. The lightning-fast calculations of the waitress, the complex spatial mathematics of the carpenter, the aesthetic and diagnostic acumen of the hairstylist - our failure to acknowledge or respect these qualities has long undermined a large portion of America's working population. Mike Rose sets the record straight by taking a long, hard look at the intellectual demands of everyday work." "The Mind at Work raises basic questions about the way we define intelligence, determine what counts as valid knowledge, and classify each other by the work we do - all of which have important implications for economic and educational policy and for the kind of society we create for ourselves."--Jacket

Writer's block : the cognitive dimension by Mike Rose( Book )

9 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writer's block is more than a mere matter of discomfort and missed deadlines; sustained experiences of writer's block may influence academic success and career choices. Writers in the business world, professional writers, and students all have known this most common and least studied problem with the composing process. Mike Rose, however, sees it as a limitable problem that can be precisely analyzed and remedied through instruction and tutorial programs. Rose defines writer's block as "an inability to begin or continue writing for reasons other than a lack of skill or commi

Back to school : why everyone deserves a second chance at education by Mike Rose( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It's a statistic that's sure to surprise: close to 45 percent of postsecondary students in the United States today do not enroll in college directly out of high school and many attend part-time. Following a tradition of self-improvement as old as the Republic, the "nontraditional" college student is becoming the norm. Back to School is the first book to look at the schools that serve a growing population of "second-chancers," exploring what higher education-in the fullest sense of the term-can offer our rapidly changing society and why it is so critical to support the institutions that make it possible for millions of Americans to better their lot in life. In the anecdotal style of his bestselling Possible Lives, Rose crafts rich and moving vignettes of people in tough circumstances who find their way; who get a second ... or third ... or even fourth chance; and who, in a surprising number of cases, reinvent themselves as educated, engaged citizens. Rose reminds us that our nation's economic and civic future rests heavily on the health of the institutions that serve millions of everyday people-not simply the top twenty universities in U.S. News and World Report-and paints a vivid picture of the community colleges and adult education programs that give so many a shot at reaching their aspirations"--
Public education under siege by Mike Rose( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Proponents of education reform are committed to the idea that all children should receive a quality education, and that all of them have a capacity to learn and grow, whatever their ethnicity or economic circumstances. But though recent years have seen numerous reform efforts, the resources available to children in different municipalities still vary enormously, and despite landmark cases of the civil rights movement and ongoing pushes to enact diverse and inclusive curricula, racial and ethnic segregation remain commonplace. Public Education Under Siege examines why public schools are in such difficult straits, why the reigning ideology of school reform is ineffective, and what can be done about it

Why school? by Mike Rose( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Why School' is a little book driven by big questions. What does it mean to be educated' What is intelligence' How should we think about intelligence, education, and opportunity in an open society' Drawing on forty years of teaching and research and "a profound understanding of the opportunities, both intellectual and economic, that come from education" (Booklist), award-winning author Mike Rose reflects on these and other questions related to public schooling in America. He answers them in beautifully written chapters that are both rich in detail and informed by an extensive knowledge of history, the psychology of learning, and the politics of education. This paperback edition includes three new chapters showing how cognitive science actually narrows our understanding of learning, how to increase college graduation rates, and how to value the teaching of basic skills. An updated introduction by Rose, who has been hailed as "a superb writer and an even better storyteller" (TLN Teachers Network), reflects on recent developments in school reform. Lauded as "a beautifully written work of literary nonfiction" (The Christian Science Monitor) and called "stunning" by the New Educator Journal, Why School' offers an eloquent call for a bountiful democratic vision of the purpose of schooling
Questionnaire for Identifying Writer's Block (Qiwb) by Mike Rose( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Designed to identify students with writer's block, this measure is an attitude questionnaire of 24 items separated into five subscales: blocking, lateness, premature editing, strategies for complexity, and attitudes. If teachers or researchers wish simply to identify blockers, they can administer only the items within the behavioral subscales--blocking and lateness. If further cognitive diagnosis is desired, then the items in the cognitive/behavioral and cognitive/attitudinal subscales can also be administered. Validity, reliability, and normative data are included. (This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (trip) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts, Volume 2," published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the eric Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. The trip review, included here as an introduction to the instrument, describes the instrument's category (writing), title, author, date, age range (senior high through postsecondary and adult), purpose, and physical characteristics.)
