The Rolling Stones : a musical biography by Murry R Nelson( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 1964 the United States had been "invaded" by a number of British bands, led by the Beatles. The Rolling Stones were seen as more rebellious and rowdy than the Beatles--they were the "bad boys" as opposed to the "good boys"--And this reputation only served to enhance their popularity with their teenage fans. The Stones far outlasted the Beatles and all the other 1960s-era British bands. The Rolling Stones not only continued, but flourished, their tours drawing enormous crowds for decades

The social studies in secondary education : a reprint of the seminal 1916 report, with annotations and commentaries( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document contains a reprint of the 1916 "The Social Studies in Secondary Education: a Six-Year Program Adapted Both to the 6-3-3 and the 8-4 Plans of Organization and Report of the Committee on Social Studies of the Commission on the Reorganization of Secondary Education of the National Education Association" widely believed to be the most important document in the history of citizenship education in the United States. It legitimated the term "social studies" to designate formal citizenship education and placed squarely in the field all of those subjects that were believed to contribute to that end. While recognizing the importance of history and the social sciences as contributing to citizenship education, the Committee's report recognized that citizenship education is something more than mastery of separate disciplines. It recognized the study of social problems as a necessary part of the education of citizens, and outlined a content for the social studies that was widely adopted and has remained remarkably unchanged to the present. This book includes annotations by Murry R. Nelson, the editor of the present document, on the 1916 report. Commentaries include: (1) "The Social Contexts of the Committee on Social Studies Report of 1916" (Murry M. Nelson); and (2) "Thomas Jesse Jones--Doing God's Work and the 1916 Report" (Stephen T. Correia). The book also contains a 35-page select annotated bibliography from the eric database on social studies reform. The table of contents of the 1915 report on "The Teaching of Community Civics" is included in an appendix. (Author/DK)

Justice Education Teaching Strategies (Jets): K-6, 2 by Murry R Nelson( Book )

14 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This teaching guide, one in a series of k-6 guides, contains classroom activities dealing with citizenship education for use with children in second grade. The purpose of the series is to promote and maintain positive student attitudes and behavior and to assist students in understanding their rights and meeting their responsibilities to help insure the safety and welfare of self and others. There are three units of study. Most of the units are self-contained. However, some of the activities do require the use of publisher available resources. In Unit I, "Understanding Self and Others," students learn about feelings, responsibility, and conflict. Unit ii, "Understanding Society," examines rules and authority. Protective strategies is the topic studied in Unit iii, "Understanding Safety and Crime Prevention." Students are involved in many different kinds of activities. Some examples follow. In the unit on conflict, the class is divided into small groups. Each group is given a conflict situation which it must role play. When learning about responsibility, the students are required to write on a "Home Responsibility Chart" tasks for which they are responsible in their homes. Parents are asked to check tasks as the child completes them. The introductory activity in the unit on rules involves students in playing the "Chalk Game." The teacher gives a piece of chalk to four students scattered throughout the room and tells them to "play the game." When students become completely frustrated, the teacher begins a discussion of why there is no game until rules have been made. Other activities involve students in viewing and discussing filmstrips, reading books and poems, listening to guest speakers, and completing dot to dot pictures. The guide concludes with a listing of print and nonprint student materials. (Author/RM)
