Planning and assessing the curriculum in English language arts by Stephen Tchudi( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resisting the notion that there is a single English language arts curriculum that all schools can or should follow, this book focuses on processes for designing, implementing, and evaluating curriculums suited to the needs of individual schools and students. Part 1 of the book (The English Language Arts Curriculum in the 1990s), provides the theoretical underpinnings for this approach to curriculum. It begins with a historical overview of the evolution of English language arts programs. It then describes the origins of a "new English" that has been emerging over the past 3 decades and outlines its most promising characteristics. Part 2 of the book (Successful Curriculum Development in the English Language Arts), presents current curriculums and patterns of development. One chapter reports a survey of national Centers of Excellence in English in which curriculum makers describe the processes that led to their successful programs. A second chapter presents first-person narratives by four curriculum leaders from around the United States, describing a range of curriculum problems. Part 3 of the book (a Curriculum Developer's Handbook), offers a variety of tasks that individual curriculum developers and curriculum teams can undertake. Chapters discuss an assessment base for English programs, the curriculum framework, development and implementation of an English language arts curriculum, and (re)assessment of the skills and standards of the English language arts program. A postscript discusses the English language arts curriculum of the future. Appendixes include: "The English Coalition Report" by the National Council of Teachers of English (ncte) and the Modern Language Association (mla); "Criteria for Planning and Evaluation English Language Arts Curriculum Guides" by the ncte; "Evaluation Policy" by the Canadian Council of Teachers of English (ccte); and a list of survey respondents.

Explorations in the teaching of English by Stephen Tchudi( Book )

6 editions published between 1981 and 1989 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new literacy : moving beyond the 3rs by Paul J Morris( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, authors Paul J. Morris II and Stephen Tchudi explore what it means to be a literate person in the real world. Using interviews from a broad range of people, they reveal the gulf between what is taught in most schools and what is used in everyday life. In compelling stories, a college English teacher, a police officer, a newspaper journalist, a street sweeper, a fifth grader, and others tell in their own words how they learned the necessary skills to function at work, in school, and in their communities. The authors identify the common characteristics in each of these stories and suggest ways in which these skills can be fostered in school classrooms and literacy programs. Morris and Tchudi make the case that successful literacy education demands the development and nurturing of complex cognitive skills, which in turn yield the ability to think critically and analytically and to communicate thoughts and ideas clearly and coherently. Through the use of thought-provoking dialogue, they demonstrate how to promote literacy and offer reform strategies, curricula, and teaching innovations that can be adopted by public schools, colleges, and teacher education programs

The interdisciplinary teacher's handbook : integrated teaching across the curriculum by Stephen Tchudi( Book )

3 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No matter what you teach or how long you've been teaching, The Interdisciplinary Teacher's Handbook will help you inspire the curiosity and motivation at the heart of students' best learning experiences. True advocates of localized, exploration-based methodology, Tchudi and Lafer present a thoughtful approach to interdisciplinary teaching and offer lots of advice on developing your own program and curriculum." "Rather than reduce the interdisciplinary education to either "theory" or "practice," Tchudi and Lafer offer a full explanation of how the two areas can work together. They provide a rationale for interdisciplinary teaching that lets you understand the "why" before you accept the "how." Since the teacher's attitude is as important as the student's, they include brief exercises that ask you to reflect on your most powerful learning experiences so you can discover ways in which interdisciplinary methods match your natural thought processes. These "intermusings" enable you to introduce new methods with an experiential understanding of how the underlying theories work." "The authors never lose sight of the day-to-day difficulties teachers and administrators face. They offer practical information on several levels. The second part of the book is filled with "interdisciplinary jumpstarters," ideas for organizing interdisciplinary projects on a number of topics, complete with lists of additional materials. Throughout the book, Tchudi and Lafer suggest resources for interdisciplinary teaching that are commonly overlooked - local businesses, government agencies, people and places with histories and stories to tell. Administrators and teachers from all disciplines, at all levels, will find inspiration and practical support in this book."--BOOK JACKET
