Self-directed behavior; self-modification for personal adjustment by David L Watson( Book )

67 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and held by 2,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By providing a general theory of behavior, 'Self-directed Behavior' is designed to help students achieve whatever life goals they set for themselves. The authors guide students through exercises for developing skills in self-analysis, and they provide scientifically-based instruction in the principles and practices of self-applied psychology. The authors provide abundant strategies, based on theory and research, so that once students have applied these principles to one particular behavior or in one setting, they'll learn how to use these skills for different behaviors or in different settings."--Publisher's website
Rousing minds to life : teaching, learning, and schooling in social context by Roland G Tharp( Book )

28 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing widespread discontent with contemporary schooling, Roland Tharp and Ronald Gallimore develop a unified theory of education and offer a prescription: the reconstitution of schools as 'educating societies'. Drawing on studies from the family nursery through the university seminar, and on their own successful experiences with thousands of students over two decades, their theory is firmly based in a culture-sensitive devellopmental psychology but seeks to integrate all the recent work in the Vygotskian tradition with basic concepts in cognitive science, anthropology, and sociolinguistics. One of the authors' primary resources is the Kamehameha Elementary Education Program (KEEP), generally regarded as the world's outstanding research and development program for elementary schooling

Delta theory and psychosocial systems : the practice of influence and change by Roland G Tharp( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Delta Theory establishes the foundation for a true scientific applied psychology, a theory of how human influence induces change in others. Delta Theory is unified and universal, applying to all cultures, historical periods and goals for change. It integrates concepts and research from psychology, sociology, anthropology, evolution theory, philosophy, psychoneurology, cognitive science and cultural-historical-activity theory. Yet Delta Theory is clear, economical and elegant, with a full exposition of tactics for its practices. Rich examples are drawn from professional practices, but also from the creation and operations of criminals, healing ceremonies of indigenous peoples, and cross-species comparisons. This book ultimately seeks to describe how influence works, how it could be improved and how it can be resisted

CREDE's premises, mission, principles, theory, and research design are outlined, and the scope, range, and scale of its activities are noted. Crede was established to assist the nation's diverse students at risk of educational failure to achieve academic excellence. The Center works to move issues of risk, diversity, and excellence to the forefront of discussions concerning educational research, policy, and practice.
