The development of political attitudes in children by Robert D Hess( Book )

35 editions published between 1967 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 17,000 children were interviewed or tested to investigate their political attitudes. Data relevant to social class and intelligence are as follows: compared to others, children of high intelligence acquired political attitudes earlier, saw the Supreme Court as a more powerful decision maker, perceived laws as less rigid, had more reservations about the competence of the government and had a sense of political efficacy, were more likely to be politically active, and were more willing to accept the possibility of change in the system. The amount of difference perceived between political parties and beliefs about their disagreements, perception of duty to vote, loyalty to the country, and interest in current events did not vary by social class or intelligence. Party choice was not related to social status until after grade 5; children with greater ability to abstract were more likely to perceive the government in institutional rather than personal terms; children from working class homes were more attached to the President than were others; and participation in political discussion and concern with political issues were more frequent in children of high iq and social status.

Conference on development of cross-national research on the education of children and adolescents by Robert D Hess( Book )

3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nine foreign research centers and 9 united states research centers were represented by 24 investigators at a cross-national conference in chicago, illinois, on february 20-28, 1964. objectives of the conference were--(1) to examine the implications of contemporary research for education, (2) to plan new projects with particular relevance for education, and (3) to communicate the results of this conference to a wider audience in order to stimulate interest and additional research. A work group on child-rearing practices suggested that the problem of obtaining comparable cross-national data in a systematic way be approached by setting up two kinds of structures under international sponsorship--(1) a federation of 7 to 12 newly developed research facilities in strategically selected areas of the world, and (2) a related, but more loosely federated, and probably less reciprocally operated, string of about 30 research facilities in already existing centers of learning and research. The work group on development of social attitudes developed a plan for cross-cultural investigation to be instituted in the united states, germany, italy, mexico, brazil, and possibly england on various specified areas of behavior. The work group on cognitive development discussed current research projects pertaining to development of the child's cognitive functioning and value concepts. (Jm)

Bearbejdede indlæg fra en konference afholdt i USA i 1966 om tidlig læring og tidlig undervisning. Bogen afspejler tidens pædagogiske og udviklingspsykologiske forskning og behandler bl.a. spørgsmål som: Ved hvilken alder skal formel undervisning begynde? Hvilken effekt har timingen af undervisning for barnets senere sociale og uddannelsesmæssige udvikling? Får samfundet nok for de økonomiske og professionelle ressourcer, der anvendes på preschool-området? Kan socialt dårligt stillede børn opnå en god uddannelse uden at inddrage familie og samfund?

This study seeks to measure children's early receptiveness to political concepts. Information was collected on attitudes toward real people and roles, opinions concerning the origin, relevance and supremacy of laws, and cognizance of current affairs and issues. Data were collected during 1961 and 1962 from a sample of white urban public school children in grades two through eight by the use of a structured questionnaire
The effects of computer-assisted instruction on student self-concept, locus of control, and level of aspiration by Ian David Smith( Book )

3 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic question investigated in this study was the effect of the Stanford computer-assisted instruction (cai) drill-and-practice program in elementary arithmetic when used as remedial instruction, on the self-concept and math attitudes of junior high school students. About 75 percent of the sample of 320 students came from Mexican-American backgrounds. A two-group pretest-posttest design was used. The subjects could not be randomly assigned to treatment and control groups because the cai program had been operating for several years in the school. The conclusions of this study are: the cai program promoted realistic attitudes toward math; cai may be an efficient, effective form of remedial instruction; cai did not prove dehumanizing, and no across-the-board negative attitudes resulted from the program; there is no best way of presenting educational material to all students.

The urban/rural school development program : an examination of a federal model for achieving parity between schools and communities by James V Terry( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1970, the U.S. Office of Education, through the Bureau of Educational Personnel Development, initiated a program promoting community-school collaboration, which was called the Urban/Rural School Development Program. Designed to train educational personnel at a small number of schools in low-income communities characterized by student underachievement, it is now active at 26 sites. The purpose of this effort was to demonstrate that federal funds could strengthen the educational resources of the total school community through a joint effort between the school staff and the community. This paper is a descriptive and evaluative report of the first three years of the program. It describes the factors involved in developing the organizational structures needed for community-school collaboration, the variety of patterns that emerged at the sites, and the degree of effectiveness achieved. Chapter two gives a design for the survey and presents a general overview of the sites. The next chapter deals with representation and parity in the school/community councils, while chapter four discusses community involvement. Teacher training activities related to the program are discussed in chapter five. It was concluded that parity in community involvement between the school and its community is a viable and effective possibility. The installation of urban/rural programs did restructure the relationship between the community and the school. The participation of community members had a definite effect on the nature of the training programs developed locally. The School/Community Council has become a workable administrative unit. This program seems to allow community members to have a channel to develop community education and participation. Appendices give data on participating schools, present the survey questionnaires, and give personal profiles on the council chairpersons and school development team managers. (Sk)
