Hurricane Andrew, the public schools, and the rebuilding of community by Eugene F Provenzo( )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book shows how schools help people to cope with disasters and rebuild their communities. Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida early on Monday morning, August 24, 1992. Widely described as the worst natural disaster in modern U.S. history, the storm left 38 people dead in South Florida, 80,000 homes destroyed, and damage estimates of at least billion. The area devastated by the hurricane was approximately three times the size of Manhattan. Almost 250,000 people were left homeless by Andrew--roughly the population of the entire city of Las Vegas, Nevada. Garbage generated by the storm in a single night was equal to the projected landfill for Dade County for the next thirty years. Hurricane Andrew, the Public Schools and the Rebuilding of Community addresses the experience of the Dade County Public Schools--its teachers and students, administrators and staff--during the first school year following the storm. In particular, it examines the role of the schools in helping people cope with a disaster of the magnitude of Hurricane Andrew, and more specifically, with their role in rebuilding community. ...

Computers, Curriculum, and Cultural Change: An Introduction for Teachers, Second Edition is a comprehensive introduction to using computers in educational settings. What distinguishes this text from others on the topic is its focus on: *the issue of how computers are redefining our culture and society and the work of schools; *the idea of using the computer as a tool for increasing efficiency and productivity in curriculum; and *the concept of the computer as a tool not only for efficiency, but actually as a means of enhancing intelligence. This text provides students with an introduction to basic computer skills and experience, enhanced by helpful pedagogical aids, including case studies and highlighted features, such as Portfolio Development, Reflective Practice, Computing Timelines, Filmographies, bibliographical sources, and a text-linked glossary of key computer terms. New in the Second Edition: In addition to being thoroughly updated, a new section has been added to Chapter 1, "Creating an Electronic Portfolio," with activities linked to the standards for educational computing established by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). Electronic portfolio activities at the end of each chapter give students the hands-on practical skills they need and, at the same time, cover the necessary theoretical and conceptual material for an introductory educational computing course

W.E.B. Du Bois's exhibit of American Negroes : African Americans at the beginning of the twentieth century by Eugene F Provenzo( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color-line." This quote is among the most prophetic in American history. It was written by W.E.B. Du Bois for the Exhibition of American Negroes displayed at the 1900 Paris Exposition. They are words whose force echoed throughout the Twentieth Century. W.E.B. Du Bois put together a groundbreaking exhibit about African Americans for the 1900 World's Fair in Paris. For the first time, this book takes readers through the exhibit. With more than two hundred black-and-white images throughout, it explores the diverse lives of African Americans at the turn of the century, from challenges to accomplishments. Du Bois confronted stereotypes in many ways in the exhibit and he provided irrefutable evidence of how African Americans had been systematically discriminated against. Though it was only on display for a few brief months, the award-winning Exhibit of American Negroes represents the great lost archive of African American culture from the beginning of the twentieth century

The textbook as discourse : sociocultural dimensions of American schoolbooks by Jr., Eugene F Provenzo( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The central assumption of The Textbook as Discourse is this: Interpreted in the flow of history, textbooks can provide important insights into the nature and meaning of a culture and the social and political discourses in which it is engaged. This book is about the social, political and cultural content of elementary and secondary textbooks in American education. It focuses on the nature of the discourses--the content and context--that represent what is included in textbooks. The term "discourse" provides the conceptual framework for the book, drawing on the work of the French social theorist Michel Foucault. The volume includes classic articles and book chapters as well as three original chapters written by the editors. To enhance its usefulness as a course text, each chapter includes an Overview, Key Concepts, and Questions for Reflection"--Provided by publisher

Chapter 4 is an international survey of innovative playgrounds. Chapter 5 considers issues relevant to playground use by exceptional children, including mentally retarded children, emotionally disturbed children, and visually and hearing impaired children. Chapter 6 reviews research on and offers suggestions concerning playground construction and safety, while ways in which playgrounds can be used as part of nonformal and formal education are outlined in chapter 7. Chapter 8 explores the potential of playgrounds to improve the impact of education on the development of children and to extend the experience of inner-city children. The book is illustrated with many photographs, including historical photographs, of playgrounds and children. Two appendixes provide a description of the International Association for the Child's Right to Play (ipa) and the IPA's Declaration of the Child's Right to Play. (Bc)

A Comparison of individual and school level approaches to merit pay : a case study of the Dade County Public Schools by Eugene F Provenzo( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This policy study discusses two models of merit pay programs enacted in Florida: the Florida Meritorious Teacher Program and the Quality Instruction Incentives Program (quiip). Using the Motivation-Hygiene Theory (Herzberg et al.) as a theoretical framework, each program was analyzed from the perspective of how it worked as a motivator and source of satisfaction or dissatisfaction for teachers in their work. Evidence from the research was sufficient to warrant a number of general conclusions about the two programs: (1) business imposed its model of merit pay (the Florida Master Teacher Program) on the educational system; (2) quiip was implemented in response to the perceived limitations of the Florida Master Teacher Program; (3) merit pay became a confusing phenomenon for both those experiencing it and evaluating it, with two different programs being imposed on teachers at the same time; (4) the two models of merit pay functioned, in part, in different ways; and (5) merit pay in either the form of school based merit pay or individual level merit pay does not provide a solution to the general problem of low teacher salaries. Policy recommendations are suggested based on these conclusions. (Jd)
