Pupil-teacher adjustment and mutual adaptation in creating classroom learning environments by Robert S Fox( Book )

5 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of the dynamics of the learning situations in a variety of public school classrooms was undertaken. The project made a comparative analysis of the patterns of cooperation or alienation among parents, teachers, peers, and individual pupils. The patterns create learning cultures of different productivity in various classrooms. The data for the study were collected from questionnaires and group interviews with pupils, questionnaires and interviews with teachers, and a brief period of classroom observation for each of the 30 classrooms studied, including both elementary and secondary levels. Pupils rated themselves and their peers on several social and intellectual factors and responded to items regarding themselves, their peers, parents, and teachers. Several strong relationships were found between pupil characteristics and their parental, peer, and teacher influences. A few of the results were as follows--(1) parents who are perceived by their children as supportive of school life have more formal education than those who are indifferent or nonsupportive, (2) associations exist between actual liking status and attitudes toward self, only for pupils with high potency of involvement in the peer group, and (3) girls utilize their intellectual abilities more highly than boys. Sample forms of questionnaires used are included

Teaching of social science material in the elementary school by Robert S Fox( Book )

4 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Objectives were--(1) to utilize the working materials created during the previous year, (2) to explore the need for a set of resource materials directed toward helping the classroom teacher gain knowledge and skills to help in the teaching of social science, (3) to field-test the resource materials in elementary schools, (4) to develop and test teacher orientation and inservice education, (5) to analyze the data from the previous year's study of cross-age educational efforts, (6) to improve children's skills and attitudes toward others through a summer day-camp, and (7) to develop proposals for basic research. Teachers were oriented and a series of inservice sessions was held. Units were then taught by these 18 classroom teachers in 3 michigan schools. In the summer of 1963, a day camp was held at bethel, maine, where experimentation with cross-age relationships took place. Time seemed to be a problem with the teachers, as was their knowledge and attitudes toward the content area of social science. Children involved were not fully prepared to utilize skills that were necessary in the learning of the unit. The vocabulary was new to many, and they were sometimes bored. It is suggested that small groups be used for the study. The cross-age work used children from kindergarten through 6th grade. The older ones helped the younger ones with projects and personal relationships. Reports on many children and their interaction with others are given in detail. For example, a sixth grader helped a slow fourth grader to read. The results were favorable, and a good rapport existed between most of the children

The diffusion of educational innovation : recommendations for policy makers and administrators by Richard O Carlson( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is one of two publications that resulted from the National Seminar on the Diffusion of New Instructional Materials and Practices held at the Wingspread Conference Center in Racine, Wisconsin in June 1973. It is written for and recommends diffusion methods to those who control the resources that are used to diffuse and implement educational innovation--school building and district administrators and policy makers, persons in state department of education, and officials in federal agencies supporting education. The paper consists of a set of 24 generalizations about dissemination of innovation and examples of how these generalizations can be applied. They are grouped into four categories: educational products, adopting systems, processes of development, and dissemination. For instance one generalization about adopting systems is "School districts and schools that place a high value on evaluation are more likely to adopt new products." In most cases examples of a generalization are cited for each level of policy making--building, district, state, and national. (Author/ND)

Social science laboratory units: Teacher's guide by Ronald Lippitt( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developed by an interdisciplinary team of social scientists and educators, this program utilizes a modified laboratory approach to investigate causes and effects of human behavior. Though intended for intermediate grades, the units may be used successfully at third and seventh grade levels. The Teacher's Guide, represented here, and a companion volume, the Teacher's Role in Social Science Investigation, contain all information needed for program implementation. The first unit, Learning to Use Social Science, introduces children to the work of social scientists. It presents the basic methodology that is used in subsequent units. After Unit 1, the units may be taught in any sequence. Each of the other six units concentrates on a specific behavioral situation. They are entitled, Discovering Differences; Friendly and Unfriendly Behavior, Being and Becoming; Individuals and Groups; Deciding and Doing; and, Influencing Each Other. All seven units can be taught in one year as the social studies for that year, or one or more units can be incorporated into the existing social studies curriculum. Four to six weeks are required to complete one unit. All units feature behavior specimens for observation by pupils. Components of the program in addition to those mentioned above are: Social Science Resource Book; Project Books; and Records. (Author/JLB)
