Motivating students to learn by Jere E Brophy( )

66 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written specifically for teachers, this book offers a wealth of research-based principles for motivating students to learn within the realities of a classroom learning community. Its focus on motivational principles rather than motivational theorists or theories leads naturally into discussions of specific classroom strategies. Throughout the book the author focuses on and expertly synthesizes that portion of the motivational literature that is most relevant to teachers. Key features of this expanded new edition include: Focus on School and Classroom Realities - The selection and treatment of motivational principles and strategies is constantly tied to the realities of schools (e.g., curriculum goals) and classrooms (e.g., student differences, classroom dynamics). Integrates Intrinsic and Extrinsic Principles - The author employs an eclectic approach to motivation that shows how to effectively integrate the use of intrinsic and extrinsic strategies. Covers Expectancy and Value-Related Topics - Full coverage is given to both the expectancy aspects of motivation (attributions, efficacy perceptions, expectations, confidence, etc) and to value-related topics (relevance, meaningfulness

Children's thinking about cultural universals by Jere E Brophy( )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on interview data, the authors describe K-3 students' knowledge and thinking about basic aspects of the social world that are addressed in the elementary social studies curriculum. The interviews focused on human activities relating to nine cultural universals that are commonly addressed in the elementary social studies curriculum: food, clothing, shelter, communication, transportation, family living, childhood, money, and government. This volume synthesizes findings from the research and discusses their implications for curriculum and instruction in early social studies." "Children's Thinking About Cultural Universals significantly expands the knowledge base on developments in children's social knowledge and thinking and, in addition, provides a wealth of information to inform social studies educators' and curriculum developers' efforts to match instruction to students' prior knowledge, both by building on already developed valid knowledge and by addressing common misconceptions. It represents a quantum leap in the availability of information on the trajectories of children's knowledge about common topics in primary elementary social studies education."--Jacket
Teacher-student relationships: causes and consequences by Jere E Brophy( Book )

15 editions published between 1974 and 1976 in English and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the kinds of individual differences in students that make differential impressions on teachers, the ways that such differential impressions lead teachers to form differential attitudes and expectations regarding different students, and the ways that these differential teacher attitudes and expectations begin to affect teacher-student interaction patterns. Attention is focused on several interrelated investigations by the authors and their colleagues, although the general literature relevant to these topics is reviewed and discussed. In the first chapter evidence is cited showing that teachers behave quite differently toward different students in their classrooms, and that the treatment of some students is so consistently inappropriate as to erode their general confidence and aspirations. To understand the psychological impact of schooling on individual students, it is necessary to observe teachers and students during their day-to-day activities in schools. This book brings together much of the psychological research that has been conducted in classroom settings, and in particular almost all of the available research on intraclass group and individual differences among students as they affect classroom interaction patterns.

Teaching and learning history in elementary schools by Jere E Brophy( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the teaching and learning of history in the elementary grades. The literature review in the first two chapters presents an overview of scholarship in the field and provides a context within which to interpret the research in subsequent chapters. The remainder of the book presents and discusses research on the teaching and learning of U.S. history in fifth grade. Included are detailed case studies of U.S. history units taught by three contrasting fifth-grade teachers. The contrasts of the teachers are found in their goal priorities and approaches to curriculum and instruction. The research concluded with a year-long study of developments in one group of students' historical knowledge and thinking as they experienced their first chronological survey of U.S. history. The seven chapters are: (1) "The Place and Importance of History in the Elementary Curriculum"; (2) "Teaching History"; (3) "Storytelling: The Case of Mary Lake"; (4) "Qualitative Analyses of Students' Developing Historical Knowledge and Thinking"; (5) "Scientific History: The Case of Ramona Palmer"; (6) "History as a Tool for Reform: The Case of Sara Atkinson"; and (7) "Implications for Curriculum and Instruction." (Contains references and an index.) (Eh)

A learning community in the primary classroom by Jere E Brophy( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This richly detailed description and analysis of exemplary teaching in the primary grades looks at how a teacher establishes her classroom as a collaborative learning community, how she plans curriculum and instruction that feature powerful ideas and applications to life outside of school, and how, working within this context, she motivates her students to learn with a sense of purpose and thoughtful self-regulation. The supporting analyses, which ground the teacher's practice in principles from curriculum and instruction, educational psychology, and related sources of relevant theory and research, are designed to allow teacher-readers to develop coherent understanding and appreciation of the subtleties of her practice and how they can be applied to their own practice

Social constructivist teaching : affordances and constraints by Jere E Brophy( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a sympathetic but analytical and critical view of social constructivist teaching, considering both its affordances (what it offers to students when implemented well in situations for which it is well suited) and its constraints (enabling conditions; situations in which these conditions are absent and other forms of teaching are more appropriate). Contributors were asked to explain what social constructivist teaching means in the areas of teaching in which their scholarly work has concentrated, to describe the forms that such teaching takes and the rationale for using them, assess their strengths/areas of applicability and their weaknesses/areas of irrelevance or limited applicability, and talk about how the approaches would need to be adjusted from their usual forms in order to match the affordances and limitations of certain students, instructional situations, etc. The authors focus on theory and research relating to social constructivist teaching, not merely social constructivist ideas about epistemology or learning. Taken together, the contributions encompass most grade levels and school subjects and include attention to small-group as well as whole-class settings and to selection of learning activities as well as scaffolding of discourse. Most currently available scholarly writing on social constructivist teaching is limited to consideration of propositional knowledge (defining it and identifying its key characteristics) and procedural knowledge (describing its implementation in detail). This volume also includes much-needed conditional knowledge (specification of when and why it would or would not be used)
