The reading-writing connection( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In their opening chapter, Nelson and Calfee show that the practice of separating instruction in reading from that in writing has been a dominant feature in schools in the United States since colonial times. This volume questions that separation, and suggests that instruction in the language arts can be enhanced by integrating reading, writing, and language."--Jacket
Learning and teaching the ways of knowing by Elliot W Eisner( Book )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gender and education( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A "feminist" point of view characterizes the approach taken in addressing the issues with which the book deals. Yet, as the editors point out in their introductory chapter, it is necessary today to "speak of feminisms rather than feminism" because of the different perspectives among feminists on matters relating to gender. The explanation of how this pluralism in the feminist movement has come about is one of the interesting and important contributions of the book

Bloom's taxonomy : a forty-year retrospective( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an in-depth look at issues surrounding the field of bilingual education. The focus is on meeting the needs of language minority students of Hispanic backgrounds, but the discussion throughout has relevance for those working in bilingual education in other contexts." "The book is also relevant for all who want to see all children and youth served effectively and equitably in our schools. Although the concern here is with diversity arising because of differences in language and cultural backgrounds, the authors deal with issues that are central when confronting problems linked to other kinds of diversity that increasingly characterize school populations." "The history of bilingual education in the United States is a manifestation of a persistent conflict between assimilationists and cultural pluralists. This conflict is at the root of the "politics" of bilingual education, as is clearly seen here in discussions of developments in federal and state policy." "Descriptions of practices in elementary and secondary schools with large numbers of language minority students indicate considerable variety in approaches to the problem and even in how the term "bilingual education" is construed. It is clear, however, that contributors to this volume see dual language instruction as "the best possibility for achieving the social goals of education as well as for contributing to the linguistic resources of the country." Taken together, their chapters offer a persuasive rationale for that view." "It is not easy to devise quality programs using dual language instruction. The lack of adequately prepared teachers is a major obstacle. There are important methodological issues to be considered. Problems in the evaluation of programs, including the assessment of students' progress, offer special difficulties. Meaningful involvement of parents is seen as a critical component of effective dual language programs, as is the effective use of the primary language of students "as a resource."" "Throughout the volume the authors cite and comment upon much of the significant research that has brought a new understanding of the problems and possibilities of bilingual education."--Jacket

The Arts, education, and aesthetic knowing by Bennett Reimer( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Should arts education have a more significant place in our schools? An emphatic 'Yes' comes from the editors and other contributors to this provocative volume." "They build their case by drawing upon recent developments in cognitive theory and, in particular, upon contemporary thought regarding aesthetic knowing. They contend that aesthetic knowing constitutes a 'special mode of cognition' and they see aesthetic learning as vital to intellectual growth and development. They argue that the arts should 'constitute a foundational school subject.'" "An opening chapter reviews past practices in education in the arts, thus providing a needed historical context within which current thinking about aesthetic learning can be viewed. The following chapters elaborate on the idea and value of aesthetic knowing from various perspectives to buttress the case for its importance in education." "Developmental issues are explored to deepen understanding of the nature of aesthetic growth. Studies reveal that children's art products have not changed over the years. But how has a cognitive perspective changed the way in which child art is interpreted? Can phases in general aesthetic development be identified? Or are such phases specific to each art form?" "What pedagogical issues arise in education in the arts? How are conceptual learnings important to the development of aesthetic understanding? Does the study of fine arts enrich the quality of life and shape human personality in positive ways?" "Given the long history of arts education as a peripheral matter in schools, is it now possible to envision a greater recognition of what study of the arts can accomplish by a proper focus on aesthetic knowing?" "These are some of the questions addressed in a volume that provides stimulating reading not only for arts educators but for all who are genuinely concerned about education."--Jacket
The construction of children's character( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 867 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides an analysis of approaches to moral education in the 1960s and 1970s and then moves to a description and analysis of more contemporary efforts that characterize the current 'movement' for character education. It becomes clear, however, that 'the current movement' is a misnomer, for there are marked differences today among those who are concerned with the moral and character development of children. And there are others who are critical of the idea that schools should be involved in character education at all
Education and the brain by Ill.) National society for the study of education (Chicago( Book )

8 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The brain sciences and education is the topic for this yearbook volume, which is divided into five parts. Part one consists of an introduction to the brain sciences that is a primer on the neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, and neurophysiology of the brain. Part two contains chapters on some of the basic processes of the brain: attention, cognition, motivation, language, and cerebral lateralization. Part three deals with brain dysfunction and recoveries. In part four the brain is described as triune, consisting of a primal mind, and emotional mind, and a rational mind. A theory of stages of brain development is also proposed. Part five offers a conclusion that points to the major implications for education and calls attention to the central theme--the potential for the constructive influence of education on the growth and optimal development of the brain.

The adolescent years : social influences and educational challenges( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The contributors to this book see adolescence in broad terms - as a "dynamic social construction." As society changes, it becomes necessary to rethink what it means to be an adolescent in a rapidly changing world and to look with great care for explanations of teenage behavior, which is often perplexing to adults and teenagers themselves." "A recurrent theme in this volume is that, no matter how adolescence is defined, the establishment of identity and the search for autonomy remain central developmental tasks of the adolescent years. Changes in the various social contexts in which teenagers live - family, school, community institutions, peer groups, workplace - can significantly affect the progress they make with these and other social and cognitive developmental tasks. And success with those tasks is critical to ensure a smooth transition into adulthood."--Jacket
Education in school and nonschool settings by National Society for the Study of Education( Book )

7 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Service learning( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While service learning is not a new concept, as Joan Schine points out in her preface, it is increasingly being regarded as a component of schooling rich with promise as schools seek to enhance students' classroom learning with real life experiences outside the school." "Readers will find here examples of many of the forms service can take in school programs at various levels. These examples illustrate how students can become involved in the community, be of service in ways that enrich their own lives, and add new dimensions to what they have learned in school." "The authors who have prepared chapters for this volume share a commitment to the idea of service learning. They also know that programs that combine service with learning in valid ways are the result of careful thought and hard work. The difficulties encountered in establishing such programs are not underestimated here, but useful strategies for coping with these problems are provided." "The case for service learning is made throughout the book. At the same time, it is recognized that the dynamics of how school-based service learning contributes to the development of young people has yet to be fully understood, in particular, how their lives after school are affected by their school experience. This volume, therefore, also makes a case for ongoing study of service learning programs and offers suggestions for how such studies could be carried out."--Jacket

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This yearbook offers teachers, curriculum specialists, teacher educators, researchers, philosophers, and scholars the opportunity to re-examine their understanding of constructivism, a word that is widely used today in elementary and secondary schools, in education courses, and professional journals and often conveying different meanings in various discourse communities. Section one considers constructivisim as an epistemology and philosophy of education, and section two deals with social constructivism and examines the problems inherent in the view that knowledge is entirely socially constructed. Section three presents an appraisal of constructivism as it impacts the teaching of science and mathematics. Section four examines the impact on researchers and final section, a science educator considers how constructivism applies not only to students but to teachersand researchers
