Theory and tradition in eighteenth-century studies by Richard B Schwartz( )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 1,801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of nine essays by senior scholars Donald Greene, Morris R. Brownell, Richard B. Schwartz, Howard D. Weinbrot, Maximillian Novak, J. Paul Hunter, John H. Middendorf, Shirley Strum Kenny, and Gwin J. Kolb. They draw from their own experiences as students and scholars to assess the past and present position of theory in eighteenth-century studies and to discuss the important areas of scholarship that remain relatively unexplored, often proposing specific projects. Some essays are controversial; all are lively and personal. The essays evolved from a 1987 conference held at Georgetown University—the first such conference to examine the state of eighteenth-century literary studies in fifteen years

Tyrannical machines : a report on educational practices gone wrong and our best hopes for setting them right by Lynne V Cheney( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This analysis of educational practices in the United States takes the position that a number of practices, including the way teachers are trained, textbooks selected, and college and university faculty rewarded, have become institutionalized and endure in spite of the reform efforts of the past decade. These practices, once established on a large scale, became both counterproductive and resistant to change. A reform agenda is suggested, establishing and encouraging alternatives. These include: (1) parental choice of elementary/secondary schools; (2) alternative paths to certification for prospective teachers; (3) alternatives to the mechanical criteria commonly used to select textbooks; (4) alternatives to the Scholastic Aptitude Test (sat) such as the National Assessment of Educational Progress; (5) inservice opportunities for teachers to study their subjects; (6) paths to recognition and reward for college faculty that emphasize teaching as well as research; and (7) well-informed choices for college selection for students and parents. The value of cultural and educational programs--"the parallel school" offered by museums, libraries, the theater, and exemplary television presentations--is discussed. (140 endnotes) (jd)
