Educationists and their vanities : one hundred missives to my colleagues by George F Kneller( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects 100 short essays written from 1957 to the present on the study of education and the training of teachers. The essays appear in the order in which they were originally written because they deal with issues and events that occurred at the time they were written. They embrace a range of themes including the art of teaching, the human sciences, multiculturalism, egalitarianism, postmodernism, and particularly the study of education itself. Throughout, the aim is to recall the university to its true mission: to seek knowledge and pass it on, to teach as well as to research, each process stimulating the other. A balanced, discipline-based undergraduate education is advocated as opposed to a mix of electives common on many campuses. Throughout, there is a focus on the large problems facing education and a critique is offered of schools of education which are held responsible for many of those problems. In particular, it is charged that schools of education use their lock on teacher training to promote naive reforms of little or no demonstrated value to public education. As a corrective, it is encouraged that educators draw on history, philosophy, and literature along with cultural anthropology to use the tools of interpretation that have in the past served the student of human nature.

The proper study of education by George F Kneller( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of education is such an important undertaking it should be a regular part of the curriculum for all students, not just those preparing to be teachers. An ideal syllabus would comprise four main areas of education, interconnected with aspects of four disciplines. The areas would be: education's relation to the culture and subcultures; educational control and administration; curriculum theory; and teaching and learning. The disciplines would be history, philosophy, anthropology, and literature, together with selected information from the human sciences. The first unit would focus on history, in order to supply the background for the topics of units to follow. The second unit would include educational aspects of such topics as acculturation, cultural change, and ethnicity, all treated largely within cultural anthropology. The third unit, drawing mostly on philosophy, would provide the skills needed to analyze concepts and arguments, and would be concerned with aims, values, and the constituents of knowledge. The final unit would center on human development, treating theories of human nature as they bear on education, and drawing principally on philosophy, literature, and psychology. (Jd)
