Teaching for thinking by James W Keefe( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents a variety of current efforts to incorporate thought-provoking methods into teaching. There are three sections. "Curriculum Developments" defines key curricular terms and offers a framework and general examples of teaching tactics. In this section, Barbara Presseisen distinguishes thinking from other cognitive activities and shows how "conation" (motivation and striving) and knowledge representation are being used to promote thinking. Robert Marzano discusses three domains (learning to learn, content thinking, and reasoning) assignable to specific subjects, and Francis Schrag describes how to promote deep thinking in the classroom. "Teaching and Assessment" describes new methods for teaching thinking and assessing student progress. Barak Rosenshine and Joseph Guenther describe "scaffolding" (temporary instructional supports), and Ann Brown and Joseph Campione urge incorporation of thinking into all school programs through "reciprocal teaching" strategies. Charles Letteri's essay focuses on assessing students' learning strengths and weaknesses as a diagnostic tool for guiding individualized and group programs to improve classroom performance. Robert Ennis discusses several tests and techniques for measuring thinking for accountability. "Concluding Perspectives" synthesizes research on practical methods of teaching thinking in essays contributed by Barry Beyer, Robert Sternberg, and James Keefe. Most chapters contain reading suggestions. (Mlh)
Evaluating educational performance; a sourcebook of methods, instruments, and examples by Herbert J Walberg( Book )

13 editions published in 1974 in English and Danish and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a collection of 20 articles and research reports that deal with practical, technical issues of research methodology applicable to the study and evaluation of today's schools. The evaluation techniques suggested are aimed primarily at educational reform and improvement, rather than revolutionary change. Because all the authors are currently engaged in programmatic research efforts, emphasis of the various articles is on practical rather than theoretical problems. Topics discussed include teacher evaluation, needs assessment, observation and rating instruments for assessing teaching and learning processes, evaluation of instructional media, large-scale statistical studies of educational performance and equality of opportunity, spatial analyses of educational data in a geographic area, and standardized test correlates of heredity, home environment, and schooling.

Rethinking urban education by Herbert J Walberg( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Timepiece, extending and enhancing learning time by National Association of Secondary School Principals (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication offers suggestions for making more productive use of time, a scarce and valued educational resource. The chapter authors, authorities on the use of educational time, write about how to extend and enhance learning time within and outside schools. In "Productive Use of Time," Herbert Walberg describes how learning time can be extended and enhanced by using psychological principles. In "Cycles, Rhythms, and the Meaning of School Time," Michael Connelly and Jean Clandinin suggest that annual cycles of holidays and weekly cycles (such as review and assessment) create rhythms of experience that control the intensity of instruction. Lorin Anderson, in "What Time Tells Us," differentiates among several kinds of educational time to provide insights on classroom management, instructional quality, and student learning. In "Changing the Cosmology of the School Schedule," Fenwick English discusses nonlinear scheduling alternatives. Charles Ballinger argues in "Year-Round Education: It's Time" that it is possible to introduce flexibility into the organization of the school year. Laurence Steinberg shows, in "The Use of Out-of-School Time," that extracurricular activities influence students' learning and classroom engagement. The final chapter summarizes recommendations for extending and enhancing learning time. (LMI)
Rethinking reform, the principal's dilemma : a special report of the NASSP Curriculum Council by NASSP Curriculum Council( Book )

5 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Principals can meet the challenges posed by the educational reform movement only by identifying and confronting each dilemma and exerting educational leadership amidst all the confusion. This report discusses leadership dilemmas and suggests effective strategies for resolving them. The title of each chapter is in the form of a question. The introductory chapter offers concise definitions that answer the question, "what dilemmas?" The second chapter asks if reforms are like swinging pendulums and details patterns of reaction and counterreaction in past and present reform movements. The solution is not the midpoint balance, but Dewey's method of abandoning opposing opinions and approaching the problem in a new light. Unfortunately, there has been no impartial body to speak out for American public education since the Educational Policies Commission's demise almost 20 years ago. Meanwhile, principals must learn to be educational leaders, not mere managers, and schools must rise above fads to reflect the best in society. The next chapter questions whether reforms are needed and responds affirmatively on the basis of recent blue ribbon reports and changes in public support and student demographics. Succeeding chapters explore curriculum design and integration, facets of school administration, the plight of high risk youth facing more stringent academic standards, and school scheduling alternatives. The last two chapters focus on educational quality, reviewing effective instruction elements and teachers' expectations regarding low achievers. References are included at the end of each chapter.

School choice : the findings by Herbert J Walberg( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

School Choice: The Findings is the most comprehensive and up-to-date survey available summarizing the research on charter schools, vouchers, and public versus private school effectiveness. The focus is on rigorous studies - those using randomized control groups (as in medical research), those that monitor achievement changes over time, and those based on large numbers of students. The findings reviewed here go beyond academic achievement, covering students' civic engagement, cost comparisons across school types, and public and parental opinion about schools and school choice. The consensus of this research overwhelmingly favors competition and parental choice in education

Tests, testing, and genuine school reform by Herbert J Walberg( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The pressing need to improve achievement in American schools is widely recognized. In Tests, Testing, and Genuine School Reform, Herbert J. Walberg draws on scientific studies of tests and their uses to inform citizens, educators, and policy makers about well-established principles of testing, current problems, and promising evidence-based solutions. He explains the central considerations in developing and evaluating good tests and tells how tests can best be used, covering such topics as using tests for student incentives, paying teachers for performance, and using tests in efforts to attain new state and national standards. To minimize mistaken policies and practices, the book also describes testing technology to enable readers to evaluate and make better use of tests. And because valid tests cannot be developed without clear, specific standards, one chapter is devoted to discussing standards and how they should determine the plans and development of tests and testing. In view of the continuing technical and political problems of tests and testing, the last chapter argues that, for accountability, to improve tests and testing, and to prevent fraud, the development, administration, scoring, and reporting test results should be conducted independent of traditional school authorities"--

Narrowing the achievement gap : strategies for educating Latino, Black and Asian students by Susan J Paik( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fastest growing populations in U.S. schools are minority children and youth from Latino, Black, and Asian-American communities. Multiple economic, family, and social risk factors pose challenges to these students. Not surprisingly, evidence continues to show that these children face an ever-widening achievement gap throughout their school years. Consequently, school psychologists, educators, and other allied professionals must become better informed to improve the academic and life prospects of these children. To help these children succeed in school, Narrowing the Achievement Gap: Strategies for Educating Latino, Black, and Asian Students will serve as a valuable professional tool by: Providing effective strategies from experienced scholars and professionals that can be used to improve academic achievement and well-being of minority students. Examining, collectively, three cultural groups in one concise, yet comprehensive book on themes related to diverse families, immigration issues, and teaching and learning. Conceptualizing opportunities and challenges in working with minority children in the context of the federal No Child Left Behind act, related state and local educational policies, and current social trends. Tailoring the message of voluminous research to the practical needs of professionals working with minority children in accessible terms. This volume is a must-have reference for educators, psychologists, researchers, policymakers {u2013} and for anyone who works with children. _____________________________________________________________________________ "This volume is an important and impressive collection of scholarship that addresses one of the more intractable education problems of our times--ensuring that ALL children receive a quality education."--Gloria Ladson-Billings, Kellner Family Professor in Urban Education University of Wisconsin at Madison, and 2005-2006 President of AERA "A major contribution to the field, the in-depth analyses provided by the chapter authors should be of substantial appeal to a wide audience because of its interdisciplinary approach and orientation to theory, research, and practice."--Stanley Sue, Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Asian American Studies University of California at Davis "In considering the broad problems and in recommending solutions, the book provides breadth, concision, and unique organization."--Edmund W. Gordon, John M.

Moll, Professor & Associate Dean, College of Education, University of Arizona
Handbook on restructuring and substantial school improvement( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As suggested by the title, the purpose of this Handbook on Restructuring and Substantial School Improvement is to provide principles for restructuring and substantially improving schools. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, the Center on Innovation & Improvement (CII) engaged leading experts on restructuring and school improvement to prepare modules for this handbook to assist states, districts, and schools in establishing policies, procedures, and support to successfully restructure schools. The Handbook is organized into three sections. The topic of the Handbook's modules - restructuring with a focus on the district as the impetus for dramatic improvement - is relatively new in the nation's education history. For this reason, the module authors were selected because they are highly experienced experts in their fields and can be counted on to judiciously weigh the less than definitive evidence and to state useful guiding principles
Handbook on statewide systems of support by Sam Redding( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires states to provide assistance to districts in improving the schools within their purview.

It is intended for use not only by the staff of the U.S. Department of Education-sponsored Regional Centers that serve state department staff but also by the staff of school districts and schools." --Book Jacket
