Symbolic interaction and cultural studies by Howard Becker( )

9 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 1,909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Symbolic interactionism, resolutely empirical in practice, shares theoretical concerns with cultural studies and humanistic discourse. Recognizing that the humanities have engaged many of the important intellectual currents of the last twenty-five years in ways that sociology has not, the contributors to this volume fully acknowledge that the boundary between the social sciences and the humanities has begun to dissolve. This volume explores that border area

Mathematics Instruction in Inner-City Intermediate Schools : an Inductive Approach to Identifying Problems and Crafting Solutions. Research Report #8 by Philip Manning( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An exploration of sources of gang activity in an urban area used ethnographic research with researchers posing as mathematics tutors for 1 year in a school comprising seventh and eighth grades. The "tutors" attended six eighth grade mathematics classes and acted as assistants to the teacher. The classes of 25 to 30 students lasted 40 minutes and were held at a majority black, neighborhood school. The researchers took field notes recording what happened in class focusing primarily on students' interactions with one another and with the teacher and other school employees. An analysis of these observations found that the educational goals of providing knowledge and assessing its transmission were undermined by the following factors: (1) the lack of predictability of schedule and class work from one day to the next; (2) the failure to monitor students' progress; (3) the failure of students to master material taught in previous grades; (4) the rate of student absenteeism from class; and (5) the amount of class time devoted to administrative activities. Observations also indicate that correcting these problems requires three steps: accurate assessment of each student at the beginning of the year, individualized instruction, and careful monitoring of each student's progress in order to provide feedback.
