The American college; a psychological and social interpretation of the higher learning by Nevitt Sanford( Book )

28 editions published between 1962 and 2005 in English and German and held by 1,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fundamentally, education should look to the future. It should prepare its students to live in a world of new possibilities and of new dangers. To do so, it must itself be able to change and develop rationally. A central thesis of this stimulating book is that scientific method, more than any other procedure known to man, provides the basis for intelligent change: for change based on systematic knowledge rather than on improvisation, hunch, or dogma. This rich, comprehensive volume charts the way into relatively unexplored territory. The chart is sufficiently detailed to reveal the diverse, interesting terrain as well as the rich ore that has already been discovered in this area by systematic research. It contains more information about and more insightful discussion of the varied aspects of the American college than has been available hitherto. It is a splendid beginning; it highlights what needs to be done as well as what has been done"--Foreword. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

Inventing adolescence : the political psychology of everyday schooling by Joseph Adelson( Book )

13 editions published between 1985 and 2017 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a widespread and deep awareness that all is not well with American public education nor with the students, educators, and administrators who are charged with making citizens literate. Joseph Adelson's work has gained considerable prominence in this ongoing reevaluation. Writing with force, verve, and the tools of advanced study, Adelson's book provides what might be the most comprehensive look at American education since the work of Diane Ravitch. The materials include revised and updated versions of essays that caused a real stir when they first appeared in the pages of Commentary, Daedalus, The American Scholar, and The Public Interest, among other places. The work goes against the grain of rhetoric but quite with the grain of the best in social science: That the erosion of trust in the American young has been far less severe than in the American old, that the degree of pathology, alienation, and rebelliousness in the American adolescent population is far from alarming. On the whole, each and every serious research study shows the vast majority of teenagers to be competent, purposeful, at ease with themselves, and closely bonded to their families and their values. This is, however, no pollyannish version of American education, but a tough-minded critique of educators and administrators who prefer ideological generalities to empirical truths, and whose vested interests are not in the requirements of learning, but ultimately in its subversion. The invention of adolescence was a search for a problem child more nearly detected in problematic adults."--Provided by publisher
The development of adolescent thinking : some views for effective schools by Joseph Adelson( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adolescence was the focus of an Urban Development Forum, a component of the Research for Better Schools, that explored the factors of effective schooling in terms of their impact on young people in large, urban systems. This forum featured a major presentation by Joseph Adelson. Focusing his presentation on the cognitive growth in adolescence, he reported on two major investigations of young people--a cross-national project and a study of an American urban population--both of which involved in-depth interviews of teenage subjects and a major analysis of findings. Reporting to educators concerned with effective schools, he highlights five topics that are involved in the teenager's readiness to think fruitfully about social and humanistic matters: (1) the community, (2) the law, (3) principles, (4) grasp of psychology, and (5) understanding the social order. Four speakers commented on Adelson's presentation: David Elkin (a Piagetian by training and conception), Allan Glatthorn (a specialist in curriculum development), Ione Vargas (a dean of the School of Social Administration at Temple University), and Frederick McDonald (a senior research psychologist at Educational Testing Service). The papers of these five presenters are contained in this document and provide perspectives on adolescence and information for further educational thought. (PN)
Growing and changing : what the experts say by Elizabeth Hall( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty-five years of American education : an interpretation by Joseph Adelson( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores the ideological changes which have influenced American education during the past 25 years. Gradual shifting of values and fluctuating attitudes are examined in the broad areas of authority, educational theory, the idea of merit, and moral perspectives. It is pointed out that public disastisfaction with the schools has been felt for well over a decade and that it has been responsive to the actual vicissitudes of American schooling, specifically the easing of both academic and disciplinary demands. It is also noted that the public's attitude toward schooling is not shared by a great many experts in education, who may agree that there has been a decline in quality, but see this as the price to be paid for universal education. In probing changes in the philosophy of education, an effort is made to clarify the reasons for the loss of consensus as to the functions of the schools and the values they are meant to embody and teach.
