The moral & spiritual crisis in education : a curriculum for justice and compassion in education by David E Purpel( Book )

11 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moral education ... it comes with the territory by David E Purpel( Book )

10 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains many general and specific suggestions on how schools might deal with moral education. School personnel need to be aware and knowledgeable of the dimensions of moral education--helping people to deal with questions of right and wrong in the ways they treat each other. Most of the theoretical issues presented in the book are concerned less with basic philosophical and metaphysical questions and have more concern with rationales and frameworks for curriculum content, instructional emphasis, and organizational climates for school programs. Part I of the book offers chapters which provide a philosophical framework to moral education and which discuss the aims and methods of moral education in China, Russia, England, and the United States. It also contains two chapters on moral education in the hidden curriculum and on instructional issues. Part ii contains descriptions and critiques of the values clarification approach to moral education. Part iii is concerned with the cognitive-developmental approach and Part iv with the cognitive approach. A postscript deals with questions of action implementation. (Author/RM)
Curriculum : an introduction to the field by James R Gress( Book )

7 editions published between 1978 and 1988 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book defines curriculum; delineates parameters of its inquiry and practice; identifies its principal problems and issues; describes, to some extent, its evolution and the state of its current art; and identifies some of its contributions to professional education in general. The discussion and selected readings are organized around seven sets of problems that are the focus of most theory and practice in curriculum: definitions of a curriculum; frameworks for addressing issues; arenas and participants for curriculum engineering; curriculum planning and design; the nature and formulation of objectives; curriculum implementation, evaluation, and change; and theory and research in the curriculum field. The book is addressed to three groups--graduate students in professional education, professionals in related areas, and the interested lay person. (Author/IRT)
Curriculum and the cultural revolution: a Book of essays and readings by David E Purpel( Book )

10 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of the "revolutionary" ideas in education have been procedural changes (E.G., team teaching) or sophisticated variations on old themes (E.G., "new" math). This anthology of readings attempts to break through familiar patterns of thinking about curriculums. Three initial articles under "The Process of Curriculum-Making" examine certain underlying assumptions that have long served as guides for the construction of curriculums, and point to the need for new philosophies. In a section entitled "The School and Society," three readings examine the school as both an embodiment of a theory and as a partial replication of social reality. These articles explore the kinds of knowledge, skills, and motivation needed in a radically changing society. Under "Development of Self-Awareness and Personality Growth," six essays provide examples of educational attempts to directly and consciously intervene in the personal, affective dimensions of an individual's life. Although these articles have obvious differences in emphasis and orientation, they are all united by a strong conviction that education begins with the learner's personal attitudes, style of life, personality, and values; and that human learning involves both intellectual and emotional elements.

Beyond liberation and excellence : reconstructing the public discourse on education by David E Purpel( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors' goal is to explore how an alternative, politically viable public discourse on education can be constructed. They examine the kinds of conditions, concerns, and subjectivities that must be attended to in order to develop an effective and resonant new language that can re-focus the purposes of education in this society. The authors' agree that educational discourse must be transformed into a visible, morally and politically vital, public commentary and debate - one that can begin to address the social, cultural, and spiritual crises that now confront humanity

Critical social issues in American education : democracy and meaning in a globalizing world by H. Svi Shapiro( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Critical Social Issues in American Education: Democracy and Meaning in a Globalizing World, Third Edition, is intended to work on two levels. First, it helps readers to develop an awareness of how education is connected to the wider social structures of cultural, political, and economic life. Second, it encourage not only a critical examination of our present social reality but also a serious discussion of alternatives - of what a transformed society and educational process might look like." "The editors' goal is to deliberately engage readers in connecting the work of teachers to an ethically committed, politically charged pedagogy. The assumption on which they base the text is that educators must see their work as inextricably linked to the broader conflicts, stresses, and crises of the social world - it is not overwise possible to make sense of what is happening educationally. What happens in school or as part of the educational experience, reflects, expresses, and mediates profound questions about the direction and nature of the society we inhabit." "This third edition includes many new readings and addresses issues that have more recently emerged as especially significant - such as concerns about the implications of globalization and the post 9/11 world, commercialism, violence, and the ever-increasing influence of high stakes testing." "This text is relevant for a wide range of courses in educational foundations, educational policy, curriculum studies, and multicultural education that address the social context of education, cultural and political change, and public policy."--Jacket

Moral outrage in education by David E Purpel( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays gives the reader intimate views of the author's perspectives on topics ranging from social justice and education to service learning. The book is divided into four parts. Part 1 focuses on the general nature of the author's social and cultural critique of education. Relationships between educational policies and practices, and broader social and cultural concerns, are examined. Part 2 deals with a number of curricular approaches designed as alternatives to the conventional and stultifying programs that currently pass for education in American schools. Critiques of moral education, character education, service learning, and holistic education are offered. Part 3 is in the nature of a still deeper exploration into the possibilities of using religious and spiritual discourse in educational inquiry. The papers in this part represent the author's current focus of interest as well as the locus of his personal spiritual struggle. Part 4 consists of only one selection--an essay that is primarily autobiographical in nature--that was written for a book of collected essays on how various academics have or have not integrated their Jewish origins with their scholarly work. This book concludes with an afterword by Jeffrey Kane. (Rt)

Supervision and Curriculum: Improvements for Transition by David E Purpel( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The basic thesis of this paper is that less hassles, less interference, new cultural values, and current social trends make "now" a good time for improving schools. The author suggests that change is slow in coming because administrators are reluctant to take action while they are still in the throes of a dilemma over whether schools should reflect or try to change society. The paper discusses the role conflict confronting a professional educator who is expected to be inspirational and toughminded, idealistic and realistic, and dreamer and pragmatist simultaneously. The paper concludes with some specific recommendations aimed at humanizing the schools. (Author/DN)
