The manufactured crisis : myths, fraud, and the attack on America's public schools by David C Berliner( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 1,560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Manufactured Crisis, two prominent scholars, prize-winning educational psychologist David C. Berliner and leading social psychologist Bruce J. Biddle, fight back with the good news. They debunk a whole series of familiar but untrue statistics about public schools - that SAT scores have been dropping, when for many groups they are in fact rising; that illiteracy is up, when in fact the numbers have been skewed because schools are now educating the traditionally disenfranchised in ever larger numbers; that investments in public education do not pay off when, in fact, they lead to greater student achievements and life earnings; that private schools are inherently better than public schools when, in fact, the evidence does not support this charge

"This book is guaranteed to spark lively debates and critical thinking in any classroom! Two of the most respected voices in education identify 50 myths and lies that threaten America's public schools. Berliner and Glass argue that many citizens' conception of K-12 public education in the United States is more myth than reality. Warped opinions about our nation's public schools include: they are inferior to private schools; they are among the worst in the world in math and science; teachers should be fired if their students don't score at the national average, and on and on." --Publisher description

Putting research to work in your school by David C Berliner( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines and discusses educational research and its application. A collection of abridged and edited versions of original research reports is presented, intended to help teachers use research findings to inform their own practice. The research papers bring teaching methods and resources up to date; discuss the learning potential of each student; celebrate students' diversity; describe how parents, culture, and society influence one's teaching; and deal with such things as appropriateness of teacher assignments, classroom management and class time, grouping and testing strategies, and the relationship between assessment, grading, and motivation. Underlying themes of the reports recognize: (1) educational goals include more than test scores; (2) the potential for learning exists in all children; (3) a relationship exists between a student's cultural background and learning; (4) it is important to involve parents and guardians in the education of their children; and (5) cooperative and peer learning strategies and collegial relationships among practitioners are important.

If teachers were thought of as executives--implication for teacher preparation and certification by David C Berliner( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exploration of an analogic conception of classrooms as workplaces and teachers as executives is divided into five parts. The origin of the author's interest in executive and management skills in teaching is described first. This is followed by analysis of the unfortunate history of the relationship between business management and education. Presented thereafter is a description of current conceptions of management and the role of executives in today's business world. The fourth and largest section presents a review of recent research on teaching, with an emphasis on the similarities between a teacher's role and that of an executive. The compatibility of a conception of the teacher as executive with both educational thought and contemporary cognitive psychology is noted. The last section presents implications of this kind of analysis for the training and supervision of teachers. Despite the obvious dangers, it is concluded that the teaching profession could be enhanced by a serious examination of the conception of teachers as executives. (Author/TE)
Memory span and self-direction in serial learning of names by David C Berliner( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study sought to determine whether serial learning efficiency depends on the relationship between part size and the empirically determined memory span of the learners. Issues explored were the trade-off between rehearsability and effort in optimizing this relationship, and feasibility of a flexible part size. A measure of memory span was computed, and then 65 grade 6 students were randomly assigned to 3 treatment groups, 2 varying part size and 1 a self-directed (complete freedom in method of study) group. A list of last names of the first 30 U.S. presidents were presented in whole or in part on 6 trials. Scores at 3 memory span levels show a greater effectiveness of a part size substantially larger than memory span, suggesting that effort induced by stretching the learner's memory span may be more important than guarantee of immediate rehearsal. But other data presented contradict this and suggest an alternate, unknown explanation. (Lh)
The development of expertise in pedagogy by David C Berliner( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this discussion on the development of expertise in teaching, a theory of skill learning is first presented. The characteristics of five stages of skill development in teachers are described: (1) novice; (2) advanced beginner; (3) competent teacher; (4) proficient teacher; and (5) expert teacher. A review of data collected by studies on the subject of teaching expertise points out differences between the novice and the expert teacher in the areas of: (1) interpreting classroom phenomena; (2) discerning the importance of events; (3) using routines; (4) predicting classroom phenomena; (5) judging typical and atypical events; and (6) evaluating performance: responsibility and emotions. The discussion of policy considerations for teacher educators, based upon this developmental theory of skill acquisition, is aimed at helping novices become proficient in classroom techniques while evaluating them in ways approriate for their developmental level.
