Self concept and school achievement by William Watson Purkey( Book )

10 editions published between 1970 and 1992 in English and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to help make what is known about self concept an important part of what goes on in schools. "Self theory" is neither an established fact nor an all-inclusive theory of human existence. Some students who esteen themselves highly do not achieve highly in school, and some researchers have thus not found an inevitable relationship between self-esteem and scholastic success. However, the overwhelming body of contemporary research points consistently to the relationship between self-esteem and academic achievement, and suggests strongly that the self concept can no longer be ignored by parents and teachers. In Chapter One, an overview of theories about the self is presented, which provides a brief history and some important characteristics of the self. In Chapter Two, the strong and persistent relationship between self concept and academic achievement is explored, and it is shown why there is deepening discontent with the notion that human ability is the overwhelming factor in academic success. Chapter Three is concerned with how the self begins, how it develops in social interaction, and what happens to it under the impact of school. In Chapter Four, ways are suggested for the teacher to become a significant force in building positive and realistic self concepts in students. (Author/JM)

Invitational learning for counseling and development by William Watson Purkey( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph describes the theory and practice of the invitational learning model as it applies to school counseling and development. Invitational learning is a paradigm for personal and professional functioning, and for organizational restructuring, based on four values regarding the nature of people and their potential and the nature of professional helping: respect, trust, optimism, and intentionality. Part I of the book develops the theory of invitational learning in five chapters which: define invitational learning (chapter 1); discuss foundations of invitational learning (chapter 2); identify four levels of functioning (chapter 3); explore the five "powerful P's" of places, policies, programs, processes, and people (chapter 4); and explain the "Four Corner Press" of being personally and professionally inviting with oneself and others (chapter 5). Part ii surveys the practice of invitational learning through seven essays by separate authors describing their experience in institutions or programs that employ the invitational learning model: (1) "The Baltimore County Guidance and Counseling Experience" (Donald E. McBrien); (2) "The Furman University Center for Excellence Experience" (Judy Lehr); (3) "The East Davidson High School Experience" (Debbie Chance); (4) "The Kansas Elementary School Curriculum Experience" (John H. Wilson); (5) "The Affton School District Experience" (Gary C. Benedict); (6) "The University of South Carolina Adjunct Instructor Experience" (Cheryl French Stehle); and (7) "The Sugar Loaf School Experience" (Joel Blackburn). Forty-eight references are included, and the inviting school checklist is appended, along with an Honor Roll of inviting schools. (Te)
The inviting school treasury : 1001 [i.e. 1024] ways to invite student success by William Watson Purkey( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains over 1,000 ideas for implementing inviting school practices. The book is based on the theory of invitational education, which is designed to create a total school environment that intentionally summons people to realize their potential in human activity. Five basic propositions characterize invitational education: (1) education should be a cooperative activity; (2) process is as important as product; (3) people are able, valuable, and responsible and should be treated accordingly; (4) people possess untapped potential in all areas of worthwhile human endeavor; and (5) potential can best be realized by places, policies, processes, and programs specifically designed to invite development, and by people who are inviting with themselves and others personally and professionally. The suggestions center on the areas of student achievement and evaluation, student activities, at-risk students, attendance, student recognition, discipline, cultural diversity, community/family outreach, computers, counseling, professional development, and teaching techniques. An index is useful for cross-referencing. (Lmi)
