Gender influences in classroom interaction by Louise Cherry Wilkinson( Book )

6 editions published in 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 11 chapters comprising this work focus on the interactional influences that may be related to differential classroom experiences for males and females. The effects of contextual factors, teacher characteristics, and student characteristics are investigated. Addressed primarily to researchers, this information should prove useful to teachers, educational policymakers, and others who want to insure that every child is offered educational opportunities regardless of gender. Chapters are the following: (1) "Overview" (J. Lindow, C.B. Marrett, and L.C. Wilkinson) which introduces the topics of gender and teacher-student interaction, gender and peer interaction, and research on gender in the classrooms; (2) "Autonomous Learning Behavior: a Possible Explanation of Gender-Related Differences in Mathematics" (E. Fennema and P. Peterson); (3) "Listening to Adolescents: Gender Differences in Science Classroom Interaction" (L.W. Morse and H.M. Handley); (4) "Race-Gender Status, Classroom Interaction, and Children's Socialization in Elementary School" (L. Grant); (5) "Classroom Experiences and Student Gender: Are There Differences and Do They Matter?" (J.S. Eccles and P. Blumenfeld); (6) "Interactions of Male and Female Students with Male and Female Teachers" (J. Brophy); (7) "Gender Differences in Preschool Classrooms: The Effects of Sex-Typed Activity Choices" (A.C. Huston and C.J. Carpenter); (8) "Some Determinants and Consequences of Sex Segregation in the Classroom" (M.E. Lockheed); (9) "Sex Differences and Sex Segregation in Students' Small-Group Communication" (L.C. Wilkinson, J. Lindow, and C. Chiang); (10) "Gender Differences in Small-Group Interaction and Achievement in High- and Low-Achieving Classes" (N.M. Webb and C.M. Kenderski); and (11) "Gender, Classroom Organization, and Grade Level as Factors in Pupil Perceptions of Peer Interaction" (G. Morine-Dershimer).

What legally constitutes an adequate public education? : a review of constitutional, legislative, and judicial mandates by Martha M McCarthy( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the law governing the definition of educational adequacy is still evolving, partial definitions can be gleaned from various state and federal laws and regulations prescribing standards for schools and from judicial interpretations of constitutional and statutory provisions. This document presents the results of such an analysis. After delineating the research questions and procedures guiding the study, and the definitional distinctions between the closely related concepts involved, the report examines relevant litigation. The cases reviewed affect state school finance schemes, the rights of students with special needs, and parental control over educational choices. State legislative and regulatory activity defining adequacy and establishing adequacy standards is described next. The nature of school funding laws, eight states' statutory definitions of adequacy, and the application of program requirements, accountability mandates, and minimum competency standards are covered. The federal role in defining and establishing adequacy standards is addressed last, with special attention paid to regulations regarding handicapped students, bilingual, compensatory, and vocational education, and research, development, and dissemination activities. A final chapter summarizes the findings, discusses obstacles to defining adequacy conclusively, and comments on prospects for the 1980s. Appendices list relevant court cases and pinpoint pertinent provisions of state constitutions. (Author/PGD)

Work, youth, and schooling : historical perspectives on vocationalism in American education by Harvey A Kantor( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the product of a conference on the historiography of education and work that was held at Boys Town Center, Stanford University, on August 17-18, 1979. The central purpose of the conference and this report was to evaluate existing research and to develop and assess new interpretations of the historical development of linkages between education and work. Included in this report are the following seven papers, which were presented, critiqued, and discussed during the conference: "Enduring Resiliency: Enacting and Implementing Federal Vocational Education Legislation"; "The Adolescence of Vocational Education"; "Education and the Labor Market: Recycling the Youth Problem"; "Making It in America: Work, Education, and Social Structure"; "Marry, Stitch, Die, or Do Worse: Educating Women for Work in the American Republic"; "The Historical Development of Black Vocational Education"; and "Observations on Selected Trends in American Working-Class Historiography." An introduction summarizing vocationalism in American education is also included. These papers focus primarily on the social, economic, and political context of vocationalism in American secondary education rather than on the details of particular programs and on the broader strategies of linking school to work rather than on tactics. Certain questions are presented in the preface which emerged from the conference as a common agenda for research. (Author/BM)

Minority students : a research appraisal by Meyer Weinberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive review of research on minority students and desegregation. An interdisciplinary approach which covers all major approaches to the problem and which presents contrasting viewpoints on school integration and minority student education is used. Effecting change in the classroom and the schools is the central concern of this book. Beyond the usual exclusive concern with subject areas which can be manipulated statistically, this tome includes the perspectives of historians, lawyers, economists, and even non-specialists. Factors treated at some length include the historical and legal background of the education of minority groups, the ideology of racism, a continuing reexamination and questioning of prevailing views of the role of social class and race in learning, and the impact of minority communities upon the schools. Separate chapters deal with Spanish-surnamed and American Indian students. The impact of schooling is examined in the areas of academic achievement, self-concept and aspirations, and the relationships of students with their peers and with their teachers. The findings presented in a conclusion to this work indicate that desegregation works for both white and black children. It narrows the achievement gap between them. In addition, minority children gain a more realistic conception of their vocational and educational future through integrated settings. Positive racial attitudes by black and white students develop as they attend school together. This book is a companion volume to another book titled, "A Chance to Learn" which includes fuller documentation on the historical and legal materials that are cited in this volume. (Author/AM)
Teaching reading in the social studies by John P Lunstrum( Book )

2 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Approaches to improving students' skills in reading social studies materials are presented in this book. The first chapter discusses reading problems and orientations to reading in the social studies. The remaining three chapters deal with three problem areas: making a suitable match between pupil reading abilities and instructional materials, providing motivation to read in social studies classes, and improving comprehension in the reading of social studies material. Within each problem area, selected strategies, procedures, and resources suitable to different grade levels are identified and described, and where appropriate, detailed activities are suggested. The appendixes review relevant research, describe methods for assessing readability of a text, discuss the use of personal classroom journals in the social studies, present an example of a discovery episode that may be used in social studies instruction, and show how to apply Hugh Rank's "doublespeak" schema to the social studies. An annotated bibliography of related items is included. (Gw)

The teacher-researcher : how to study writing in the classroom by Miles Myers( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written for teachers who want introductions to conducting school assessments and to studying features of writing, this book is intended (1) to provide ways for teachers to analyze writing samples and the writing process for school or program assessment, and (2) to promote the development of teacher research among kindergarten through grade 12 teachers by providing examples of different ways teachers can study writing in their classrooms. The first chapter presents an overview of procedures in teacher research. The next four chapters introduce various theoretical frameworks within which researchers have been working, with each chapter discussing a different level of analysis--syntax, text, information processing, and social context. The final chapter focuses on errors, teaching practices, and student attitudes toward writing. Appendixes contain information on the results of teacher research, evaluation designs for practitioners, sampling and statistical tests, and using expressive writing to teach biology. (El)

Reading and the law by Robert J Harper( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seven articles in this book examine the complex issues raised by new laws that affect reading instruction. The following topics are discussed: the origins of judicial activism in education; the decline in support for public education and in esteem for educators; reflected by the shift in responsibility for educational policy making; the concept of a provider/consumer relationship in the teaching of reading; major issues involved in establishing reading as a graduation requirement; the usefulness and validity of three classes of reading definitions in establishing accountability; the need for state legislation requiring school districts to acquire, consider, and where appropriate, implement research findings concerning promising instructional strategies; and the lack of a common understanding and agreement about the nature of reading. The book includes an extensive compendium of recent state education codes and laws affecting reading instruction, which provide examples of the ways state legislatures are addressing the question of reading and language arts requirements through legislation.

Academic workplace : new demands, heightened tensions by Ann E Austin( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pressures that have negatively affected the work environments of colleges are identified, and research concerning the work experience of faculty and administrators is reviewed. The effect of the extrinsic and intrinsic elements on faculty members' work is considered, including their power and autonomy, their relationships to the institution, and the outcomes of their work. Extrinsic factors include workload and the opportunity structure, while intrinsic factors pertain more to the nature of the work itself, as well the responsibilities and autonomy of the staff member. Attention is also directed to productivity of the faculty member, job satisfaction, and morale. Recommendations concerning the articulation of institutional mission, task and decisionmaking structures, and career planning and staff development are offered. Appended are tables that summarize the research on the work experience of faculty and administrators (presidents, mid-level, and other). Each table is divided into sections paralleling the major topical areas of the text. Studies supporting the major research findings are also listed. In addition, tables present important issues and questions not yet answered concerning the work experience of faculty, administrators, and support staff. A subject index to the 1983 ASHE-ERIC Higher Education Research Report series is included
