Perspectives on organizations : viewpoints for teachers by Ronald G Corwin( Book )

6 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication is the first volume in a series of training publications, "Perspectives on Organizations," designed to develop among future and practicing teachers an awareness of what organizations are, how organizations affect them, and how they can deal with organizations. The materials in this series were developed when Teacher Corps decided to include the study of organizations in its 1975 Corps Member Training Institute for preservice and inservice teachers. The preface underscores the significant contribution the study of organizations can make to the field of teacher education. Part I, "Teaching and Learning About Organizations," contains an overview, rationale for the study, and instructional objectives. Part ii, "Life in Organizations," is an introduction to organization theory and basic related concepts. Divided into two sections, it deals with the questions, "Why study organization?" And "What are organizations like?" The subject of Part iii, "Organizations in Action," tells how the instructors and learners might go about exploring organizational concepts. Activities in Part iii can be used to enrich the examination of key concepts and to draw on the experience of participants as a critical element of learning. An appendix includes abstracts of selected readings and a suggested film list along with a bibliography. (Sk)
Perspectives on organizations : the school as a social organization by Ronald G Corwin( Book )

8 editions published between 1977 and 1980 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document provides ideas and information for those responsible for preparation of education personnel. It includes papers and other materials expressing several views on organizational problems in schools. The problems that teachers encounter in coping with the social hierarchy within the school are discussed as well as their responsibilities to the organization itself. School systems are examined from a sociological point of view. The nature and status of teaching is explored within the framework of the school as a social system operating in the wider arena of the community. (Jd)
Perspectives on organizations : schools in the larger social environment by Ronald G Corwin( Book )

5 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of the interaction between school and social context is divided into two parts. The first section examined some environmental factors external to the school that directly influence school policies and practices. Citizen participation in school activities and the relationship of the school to the state are two of the topics examined. The second section is a series of activities designed to be used in an instructional setting, which explore the complex relationships among schools and their local, state, or federal sociopolitical environments. This volume is the third in a series examining the nature of the school as an organization. (Author/LH)

Lessons from the Teacher Corps by Roy A Edelfelt( Book )

3 editions published between 1974 and 1982 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet is a nontechnical summary of an extensive sociological investigation of the Teacher Corps, which was restricted to 10 universities and 42 schools. Data drawn from observation, questionnaires, and interviews with teachers, professors, and interns are used to present a composite picture of the program. The document includes a history of the Teacher Corps program, gives reasons for the evaluation study, and indicates methodology used. Two different kinds of information are woven together throughout the report: (a) generalized findings from the 10 Teacher Corps sites studied and (b) illustrative material drawn from two different sites--an urban university and a southern university. The summary of findings reports some intern dissatisfaction and friction with teachers. Specific characteristics of interns and teachers in the program and school changes are among the areas covered in the summary of findings. Conclusions drawn from the study are reported at the end of the booklet. (Ja)

Staff conflicts in the public schools by Ronald G Corwin( Book )

5 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several critical components of public school organization and their relationship to staff conflict were studied. A sample of 1,976 faculty members in 28 public high schools was selected for questioning and interviewing. The findings discussed were (1) typical patterns of organization, (2) associations between organizational variables and conflict, (3) departmental analyses, (4) content analyses, and (5) analyses of individuals. Staff conflict appeared to be directly related to the professional orientation of school bureaucracies. Conflict appeared to increase in the bureaucratization of more professional organizations. Bureaucratization, however, was found to be a direct response to such other conditions as professionalism, organizational complexity, and staff turnover which, in turn, were directly associated with conflict. A significant conclusion was, therefore, that conflict not only represents the breakdown of school organizations, but the cause of the organizational types observed. (Rs)
The development of an instrument for examining staff conflicts in the public schools; final report by Ronald G Corwin( Book )

5 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Described is the first year of a proposed 3-year study. Major objectives were to develop the instrumentation and measurement procedures in preparation for a larger study of the conflicts which occur among professional educators employed in public bureaucracies of varying size and complexity. Two types of conflicts were investigated--(1) friction incidents which have recently occured between teachers and their administrators, as described by a sample of teachers, and (2) conflicting conceptions of teachers' professional and employee roles as measured by likert-type status orientation scales. The general thesis is that professionalism is a militant process by which a vocation attempts to gain control over its work. This militancy is likely to be particularly evident in bureaucratic systems where work is regulated by centralized decision-making authorities, standardized rules and procedures, and specialized personnel. The questionnaire and interview technique developed seemed valid when applied to a "control" group. This implies that a further study beyond the seven pilot schools would be in order, providing a larger sample and more systematic analysis. (Appendices contain form letters, sample questionnaires, and statistical data.)
