Excellence in college teaching and learning : classroom and online instruction by George Henderson( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will improve the quality of instruction that college students need. It makes numerous suggestions that must be tended to when teachers instruct students. For example, the authors speculate about ways teachers can present what may at times seem to be a mountain of information without burying students under it; why teachers must continually update their Internet skills; and whether courses are taught on campus or online, they should not be academic fluff or pedagogical gimmicks. Throughout the book the authors punctuate sentences and paragraphs with metaphors, similes, hyperboles, and ironies in order to adequately capture a panoramic view of the consonance and dissonance that characterizes effective and ineffective teaching. Scattered throughout the book are suggestions about ways teachers can become more responsive to students. For example, it provides suggestions on how classroom and online teachers can consciously manage sounds, movements, colors, and the other aspects of teaching as though they were like drama, music, ballet, or literature in order to keep students attentive. This is one of the few books that give equal attention to teaching classroom and online courses. Face-to-face teaching is more art than science, so the first part of the book is interpersonally expansive. Online teaching is more technology and science than art. Therefore, the second part of the book is more straightforward, less interpersonal. By reading this book, teachers will find out what will work for him or her, and it provides a lot of interesting information about other teachers, including the authors. Also provided are succinct overviews of several instructional methods, including their theoretical foundations, that can be used independently or together to enhance the education of college students. Many of the topics discussed in one chapter are revisited in later ones. This spiral approach to learning is actually repetition and supplementation for knowledge transfer. The exercises at the end of each chapter serve dual purposes: they are both self-assessments and summaries of selected data. The book will serve as an excellent resource for would-be, new, and experienced teachers as well as professional development staff and librarians

Human relations approach to multiculturalism in K-12 schools : selected issues and strategies by George Henderson( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explicit in this book is the author's belief that it is not enough to say that Americans live in culturally diverse and stratified communities in which educational opportunities are not distributed fairly; nor is it enough to reiterate that most educational opportunities are not based solely on students' academic abilities. Rather, elementary and secondary school personnel must be involved in abating these problems. The book is not meant to be read passively by teachers and teacher candidates; it is intended to be a dialogue that encourages discussion and, when possible, action. Explicit throu

America's other children : public schools outside suburbia by George Henderson( Book )

7 editions published in 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geared particularly for students who will never teach in an urban community, as well as for those who will teach in the urban schools affected by the influx of migrants from rural areas, the document describes the effects of urbanization on rural communities and their institutions, especially the family and the school. Among the rural minorities discussed in the 50 articles in the document are Mexican American, poor white, American Indian, and Negro children, and children of migrant farm workers. Since teachers of these youth are said to have a major effect upon their success or failure, it is pointed out that effective teachers must realize that they cannot overlook student backgrounds, needs, and problems because these factors affect student ability to profit from school experiences. It is believed that teachers who are insensitive to these factors can weaken a child's confidence, increase his frustration, and make his school adjustment difficult. The table of contents carries the following major headings: (1) The Rural Poor, (2) The Educational Challenge, (3) Quality Education is People, (4) Strategies and Innovations, (5) Racial Integration in the Public Schools, and (6) If We Fail.

Education for peace : focus on mankind by ASCD 1973 Yearbook Committee( Book )

9 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1973 yearbook, designed for educators, parents, and other readers, aims to inform about issues of war and peace; prod toward teaching about peace; and encourage people to seek and live peaceful lives. Major emphasis is on presenting literary references and statistical data that can form a foundation for individuals who are trying to be effective peace educators. Each chapter focuses on schools and those who administer and teach in them, but stress is on concern for students and the impact that their school experiences have upon the ultimate realization of a peaceful world order. The book is arranged into nine chapters with ten authors providing insightful understanding toward the general theme of education for peace. In addition to a brief prologue, chapters focus on factors contributing toward violence in individuals and institutions; children and young students who respond to questions about ways in which they conceptualize peace; problems and forces operative in relation to peace and education for peace; the central role of international and cross cultural experiences in peace education; the rationale and goal definition for developing curriculum trends in peace education for the 1970's; parents' roles in peace education; and the man-in-society theme as it relates to the contemporary world and as projected into the future. Appendices offer additional sources of reference. (Author/SJM)

Ethnicity and substance abuse : prevention and intervention( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a fresh interdisciplinary approach to understanding drug abuse problems within the U.S. ethnic minority community, including African American, Asian Pacific American, Hispanics, and Native Americans. It brings together a wide range of current drug abuse and health issues, research, and model practices of prevention and intervention strategies pertaining to ethnic minority populations. Although this book focuses most of its attention on ethnic minority substance abusers, considerable mention is made of their White peers, too. Thus, the authors offer cultural points and counterpoints - all of them given to achieve three objectives: (1) to make care providers aware of cultural factors that affect substance abuse and cessation; (2) to review multidisciplinary research studies in order to ascertain helpful and unhelpful health care practices; and (3) to provide practical suggestions for improving community-wide substance prevention and intervention programs. The book tries to answer three questions. What kind of treatment and services do most ethnic minority substance abusers receive in our nation's hospitals, clinics and other community rehabilitation facilities? How effective are those programs? What can be done, when necessary, to improve the quality of treatment and services? The triadic relationship between culture, ethnicity and substance use is evident in answers to those questions. Implicit throughout this volume is the authors' belief that how care is given to substance abusers is just as important as what kind of care they receive. Therefore, it is also a goal of this book to be of value to college and university professors substance abuse workshop presenters, and in-service consultants who prepare professional helpers and paraprofessionals to render quality services to substance abusers."--Jacket
