7 editions published between 1971 and 1980 in English and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses, in novel form, the question of whether or not the traditional system of grading in American schools is the most educationally useful system of evaluation. Within the dramatic framework of a controversy over grading at Mapleton High School, the authors examine various issues related to the traditional grading system, including the history of grading, arguments for and against traditional grading, research findings on grading, and alternatives to traditional grading. The appendix contains an annotated bibliography of research on grading and a brief discussion of eight alternative grading systems. (Jg)
Helping your child learn right from wrong : a guide to values clarification by Sidney B Simon( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Colin McGinn presents his latest work on consciousness in ten interlinked papers, four of them previously unpublished. He extends and deepens his controversial solution to the mind-body problem, defending the view that consciousness is both ontologically unproblematic and epistemologically impenetrable. He also investigates the basis of our knowledge that there is a mind-body problem, and the bearing of this on attempted solutions. McGinn goes on to discuss the status of first-person authority, the possibility of atomism with respect to consciousness, extreme dualism, and the role of non-existent objects in constituting intentionality. He argues that traditional claims about our knowledge of our own mind and of the external world can be inverted; that atomism about the conscious mind might turn out to be true; that dualism is more credible the more extreme it is; and that all intentionality involves non-existent objects. These are all surprising positions, but he contends that what the philosophy of mind needs now is 'methodological radicalism' - a willingness to consider new and seemingly extravagant ideas

Degrading the grading myths : a primer of alternatives to grades and marks by Sidney B Simon( Book )

7 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is introduced by Sid Simon's discussion of the "Wad-Ja-Get?" Syndrome--society's obsession with grades--and where it has led. Simon also explains each author's strong identification with the grading issue, and presents seven major questions that the authors, in the book, attempt to answer. His overview provides a perspective for considering all the material to follow. Part I presents the problem, beginning with Art Combs' stage-setting comments about the nature of learning and his discussion of four criteria for determining procedures in grading. Later in this section, Sid Simon looks at the many ingenious methods of cheating that students use in grade-getting. Part ii provides a quick review of what research has to say on the subject of grading and offers references. The pros and cons of several alternative grading/evaluating schemes are also reviewed. Although most of the research presented confirms the fact that grading is, indeed, a problem, much attention is given to the typical humanistic concerns. Five successful alternative (non-common) grading procedures are presented in Part iii. These case studies range from a personal report about procedures in a college classroom, to notes on a computerized grading system, to a faculty-developed evaluation plan for an entire school district.

Composition for personal growth: values clarification through writing by Sidney B Simon( Book )

6 editions published between 1971 and 1983 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A program designed for teaching composition to students in grades seven through twelve is presented in this book. The approach advocated attempts to promote the student's awareness of self, his ability to relate positively to others, and his ability to translate his values into meaningful actions through guided activities of reading and writing. Chapters address themselves to such issues as composition, identity, interpersonal relations, values into action, personal growth, implementing the "composition for personal growth" approach, general techniques and activities, ongoing activities, and personal-growth activities for teachers. Also included is a list of suggested readings for the teacher. Although the book was originally intended for use in English classes, the program has been used effectively by teachers in drug education programs, group counselors, social studies teachers, religious educators, foreign language teachers, and leaders in youth programs.
