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

11 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 1,033 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

In praise of education by John I Goodlad( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 809 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)

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

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 583 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

Romances with schools : a life of education by John I Goodlad( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Romances with Schools, John Goodlad steps out from behind the public persona of distinguished scholar and advocate for public schooling to offer a moving personal account of a life devoted to educating the young. He deftly interweaves fascinating personal details with reflections on many of the larger issues in education that he has explored throughout his career." "John's early encounters with formal schooling begin just before the Great Depression in Canada with the humble North Star School. From there we are taken through sixty-plus years in education, starting with John's first teaching job as the sole instructor of a one-room schoolhouse in a farming community in British Columbia, through his years as an education activist and founder of the famed Englewood Project, to his decision in the 1980s to step down as dean of the UCLA Graduate School of Education to return to his first love, teaching. Along the way, he treats us to vivid characterizations of the men, women, and above all, the children who shaped him as a person and inspired his thinking on education. And he explores important themes at the center of his philosophy, such as the pernicious influence of tracking and standardized testing and the need for perpetual reevaluation and renewal in pedagogy." "Offering a compelling view of public education in North America as seen through the prism of one extraordinary person's life, Romances with Schools is both a poignant memoir and what may be John Goodlad's most persuasive argument yet for the need to change public education to fit the demands of a free society."--Jacket
