This book discusses the anachronistic nature of the graded school structure and the practices that accompany it and proposes the alternative of a nongraded structure. The incompatibility of the graded system with present insights into child development are the the emphasis of the first chapter. Chapter 2 examines the effectiveness of nonpromotion in reducing the discrepancy between grade standards and the realities of pupil attainment in conventional elementary schools. The third chapter refers to the emergence of the nongraded school, citing the need for facilitation of the progress of each pupil. Chapter 4 looks at the nongraded school in operation, with examples from communities and references to administrative considerations. Chapter 5 discusses developing theories of curriculum planning in reference to nongraded schools, focusing on classroom practices. The sixth chapter examines the reporting of pupil progress to the parents. Chapter 7 discusses the mental health of the child in the classroom setting. Establishment of the nongraded school and factors contributing to its successful development are the subjects of the eighth chapter. The final chapter focuses on the elementary school of the past and suggests improvements for the school of tomorrow. A comprehensive bibliography and index are included. (Wth)
In praise of education by John I Goodlad( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book about the relation of education to society has as its thesis that the proper context for education is a politically and socially democratic one. The first chapter considers what education is and is followed by chapters discussing the relationship of education to democracy, community, schooling, its conditions, and the self. Throughout these chapters eight concepts are stressed in various contexts. These are: (1) education as an individual experience development of the self; (2) the role of culture in development of the self; (3) education is environmentally ubiquitous; (4) the mutual instrumentality of education and democracy as they nourish each other; (5) education as an inalienable right; (6) the necessity for the entire community to be educative; (7) the need for schools to serve a common public purpose; and (8) the importance of national ends not dictating the educational journey of self-transcendence. The book addresses conditions necessary to the advancement of these interrelated concepts especially the necessity for a curriculum for development of an ecocentric environmental ethic. Also addressed is the comprehensive educational improvement initiative conducted through the National Network for Educational Renewal. (Contains 250 references). (Db)

Educational renewal : better teachers, better schools by John I Goodlad( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 1,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What comes first - good schools or good teacher education programs? The answer, according to John I. Goodlad, is that both must come together. In his new book, Goodlad picks up where he left off in Teachers for Our Nation's Schools - providing the vision and rationale behind "centers of pedagogy" that can bring schools and universities together in a close, renewing relationship. In Educational Renewal, Goodlad proposes a redesign of education that is grounded in a mission of enculturating the young in a social and political democracy. He details his vision of centers of pedagogy and answers many of the questions raised by his earlier work. Why have centers of pedagogy? Who are the faculty? How protected are the borders of centers of pedagogy to be? And how do partner or professional development schools fit into the scheme? True educational renewal, Goodlad says, requires the continuous examination of institutional purpose, roles, and responsibilities in order to avoid the stagnation that has all too often characterized teacher education. New curriculum development, the establishment of school-university partnerships, the transformation of school and university cultures, and collaboration with outside agencies are just a few of the examples Goodlad includes to illustrate his extensive research on improving teacher education and schools

This paperback book by staff members of the ucla University Elementary School describes and interprets an observational study of childhood schooling (k-3) in the United States.

Education for everyone : agenda for education in a democracy by John I Goodlad( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Agenda for Education in a Democracy proposed by the authors is more than an effort to simply revitalize a faltering civics curriculum. It is about restoring a shared humanity to the educational process. It is about the need to make caring, compassion, freedom, dignity, and responsibility central to the mission of schooling. It is about placing power and responsibility - a concept more demanding of the individual than is accountability - in the hands of those who need and deserve it. It is about taking the idea of excellence seriously. It is about taking democracy seriously. It is about having real faith in real people to do what is right, just, and honorable."--Jacket
