Nongradedness : helping it to happen by Robert Henry Anderson( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Urging educators to abandon the graded system of education, this book advocates the use of a nongraded, continuous approach to education in which students are taught and assessed according to their ability rather than age. The book is divided into 11 chapters. Chapter 1 outlines the history of the graded school movement and argues that conditions are now favorable for implementing a nongraded approach. Chapter 2 discusses the Inventory of Educational Beliefs and Ideas, a list of statements used to determine whether educators' views are compatible with nongradedness. Research that shows that nongraded schools benefit children from all circumstances and in all ability ranges is summarized in chapter 3. Chapter 4 defines nongradedness in detail, while chapter 5 presents behavioral indicators of nongradedness that will help educators determine if their educational practices are compatible with nongradedness. In Chapter 6, structural mechanisms of nongradedness, including team teaching and multi-age pupil grouping, are discussed. Chapter 7 presents curriculum approaches and learning modes that are compatible with nongradedness. Chapter 8 covers assessment and reporting practices. School and community relationships in a nongraded system are the focus of chapter 9, while chapter 10 discusses administrative roles. Chapter 11 proposes practical strategies for developing and implementing nongraded programs. Appendixes include the authors' response sheet for the Inventory of Educational Beliefs and Ideas, and a chart of research studies comparing nongraded and graded schools. (Mm)
Managing productive schools : toward an ecology by Karolyn J Snyder( Book )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended for use by graduate students in educational administration and supervision as well as by practicing school administrators, this book is a guide to the most effective practices surrounding the school principalship. Ideas in the book reflect current views of good management, including systems approaches, participative and collaborative decisionmaking, and contingency theory. Central to the book is the theory that each school is an ecological system containing six separate but interdependent subsystems: leadership, management, program, organization, performance, and school development. Collaborative endeavor--a healthy relationship between the subsystems--is necessary for the school to thrive as an organization in pursuit of new knowledge and new skills. Chapters 1 and 2 provide a fresh perspective on the principalship and develop the concept of an ecosystem. The following chapters examine in detail the various subsystems: chapter 3, leadership; chapters 4 and 5, goals (concepts and methodology); chapters 6 and 7, organization (organizing and developing work groups); chapter 8, performance; chapters 9, 10, and 11, program (a learning focus, student learning, and staff learning); and chapters 12, 13, and 14, management (influence systems, supervisory influence, and quality control). An appendix provides a simulation of personal management planning. Numerous figures and tables are provided, and an extensive bibliography is appended. (Iw)

Paediatric pathology by Colin Leonard Berry( Book )

5 editions published in 1981 in 3 languages and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increased provision of facilities for neonatal and paediatric care in the last 25 years has been accompanied only in part by appropriate developments in pathology. Specialist pathologists are many fewer than paediatric departments, and details of the advances in knowledge of the pathogenesis of diseases in childhood and of ways of investigating them are not uniformly available. In many institutions an individual with a special interest rather than a special training will be responsible for paediatric pathology and it is to this group of histopathologists that this text is addressed. For this reason it is not written as a comprehensive text and is not intended for use as a reference volume. Areas which may produce particular difficulties for the individual with little specialist knowledge of the very young (e. g., the lung) are dealt with in more detail and, in general, entities in which the histopathology does not differ greatly from that of the adult disease are considered briefly. A brief account of developmental processes is included where prenatal considerations are helpful in understanding a particular entity. A number of specialist topics which are known to trouble those who work in nonspecialist departments are described fully (diseases of muscle) or with guides to investigation (metabolic disease). The value of investigation and careful description of abnormalities of development is also emphasized. The authors are from different backgrounds, paediatric pathologists (J.W. Keeling, J
Opting for openness by Robert Henry Anderson( Book )

5 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public receptivity to open education as a specific example of school reform has sometimes been less than enthusiastic. For this reason, the would-be progressive school principal faces a challenging task of inquiry, information, persuasion, and affirmative action. It is explicit in the story of British open education that the head teacher plays a vital role in the development and support of the program. Similarly, a strong assumption in American writings is that the principal will and must be an educational leader. It follows, then, that unless principals do commit themselves to the cause of open education, that cause may not flourish. Leadership in planning, provisioning, and more imaginative exploitation of the school's physical environment is one of the important contributions a principal can make. (Author)
