Perceiving, behaving, becoming : a new focus for education by ASCD 1962 Yearbook Committee( Book )

16 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1962 Yearbook of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development provides bold new insights on one of the three foundations, the psychological, with related implications affecting social and philosophical aspects. Perceiving, Behaving, Becoming deals with the truly adequate person, adequate in the sense of Webster's synonym sufficient and in the sense of the authors' equivalent phrases, fully functioning and self-actualizing, rather than adequate in the corrupted usage, "good enough to get by." The yearbook describes how schools may help develop such persons. Here is no trivial contribution by scholars avoiding reality; here the authors deal with the heart of the educational process as they propose a new focus for education. If they prove to be correct in their espousal of a "third force" in psychology, neither behavioristic nor Freudian, a hopeful vista as to man's potentiality stretches ahead. The theories and applications of Perceiving, Behaving, Becoming merit intent and open-minded study by the reader"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)

Educational accountability; beyond behavioral objectives by Arthur W Combs( Book )

11 editions published between 1962 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet explores some of the issues concerning five major problems regarding educational accountability. These are problems of skills and behavioral objectives, intelligence and holistic behavior, the nature of learning and the causes of behavior, humanistic goals of education, and professional accountability. General comments about methods of assessment initiate the study of the problems. The problem of skills and behavioral objectives is presented in light of rationale for behavioral objectives and some hazards of the behavioral approach. Assessing intelligent behavior and implications of accountability are seen as major issues of the problem concerning intelligence and holistic behavior. The nature of learning presents the causes of behavior and learning as personal meaning. Self-actualization and the assessment of personal meaning are discussed in relation to the humanistic goals of education. Finally, professional accountability is observed in terms of the delegation of responsibility. The summary indicates the need for a balance of behavioral and humanistic objectives in education. (Mjm)

On becoming a school leader : a person-centered challenge by Arthur W Combs( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the significance of person-centered thinking for leadership in education. Section 1 describes why it is important for school leaders to understand how people's belief systems drive their personal and professional behavior. Section 2 focuses on the need for school leaders to understand how and why people respond to, or resist, change, and section 3 details how organizations influence person-centered leadership and how leaders, in turn, influence organizations. Chapters 1 and 2 introduce the concept of person-centered leadership and describe the kinds of data that leaders should seek and use in their daily work. Chapter 3 provides a foundation for understanding human motivation for behavior and action, and chapter 4 centers on the need for school leaders to develop a climate where learning and change can flourish. In chapter 5, the importance of a healthy self-concept for school elders is illustrated. Several examples of how person-centered leaders help develop positive self-concepts in others are presented in chapter 6, and chapter 7 focuses on why a person-centered leader must demonstrate purpose and commitment. Chapter 8 illustrates the vital role of authenticity in developing a healthy organization, and chapter 9 portrays the symbiotic relationship between leaders and organizations. The last chapter discusses needed changes in university-preparation programs. (Rjm)

The relationship of child perceptions to achievement and behavior in the early school years by Arthur W Combs( Book )

6 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research explored certain relationships between the perceptions of children and their behavior during early school years. Specific objectives were--(1) to determine if changing perceptions of self and the world are accompanied from year to year by changes in behavior and achievement and (2) to see if a knowledge of a child's perceptions can be used to predict later behavior and achievement. To accomplish this, data were collected on approximately 60 children over 3 years as they progressed from kindergarten to the second grade. Correlation analyses of all information gained on the student characteristics of perception, behavior, and achievement showed a number of general conclusive results. Among these were--(1) the feeling of personal adequacy seemed to have an all-pervasive importance in a child's perceptual organization. (2) the values held by teachers were revealed in the judgments they made in the behavior of children. (3) relationships between child perception and behavior as described by their teachers showed a positive but low correlation. (4) changes occurred in child perceptions and in behavior with progression from kindergarten to first grade. (5) perceptually oriented studies of children were used to predict, significantly, behavior a year in advance. (6) part-time observers, rather than full-time teachers, were used effectively to provide much of the significant research data. This study was essentially a pilot project. The findings were felt to suggest the need for further research and followup programs. (Jh)
