The language of the classroom; meanings communicated in high school teaching by Arno A Bellack( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A methodology was developed to describe the language of the classroom by considering--(1) pedagogical moves of structuring, soliciting, responding, and reacting, (2) substantive meanings, (3) substantive-logical meanings, (4) instructional meanings, and (5) instructional-logical meanings. A procedure was also developed for characterizing the overall emotional style of discourse utilizing the concepts of valence, potency or strength, and activity. Data were collected from a unit of instruction on international economic problems presented by 15 high school teachers to 345 students in senior high school classes. Measures of knowledge and attitudes were utilized, and the four class sessions comprising the unit were tape recorded in each of the 15 classes. Content analysis of transcriptions revealed the various kinds of meanings conveyed by the linguistic behaviors of both teachers and pupils. Statistical analyses were made of these results. The data revealed a consistent and remarkably stable pattern of pedagogical discourse. No apparent relation was found between the valence, I.E., pleasantness or unpleasantness, or the meanings expressed by the teacher and subsequent learning of the pupils. It was recommended that subsequent research should consider the consequences of the variables in classroom language which were defined in this study. (Jm)

Terminology and concepts in appraising the mentally retarded. Project director: Irving Lorge. Final report prepared by Joel R. Davitz [and] Lois J. Davitz by Joel Robert Davitz( Book )

5 editions published between 1962 and 1964 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study was to minimize the variability in legal and educational classification of the mentally retarded. A systematic review was made of the semantic variations in the definition of the mentally retarded in terms of functional adequacy for education, training, or custodial care. The method involved the review of statutes and regulations about the classification and education of the mentally retarded, a survey of procedures used in their classification, and an examination of published sources for names used in their classification. On the basis of the present review of literature, a tentative multidimensional system for the definition of terms has been developed. The proposed system consists of a number of dimensions concerned with etiology functioning, status, and prognosis. Each dimension is divided into several subcategories, representing either qualitative differences, as in etiology, or quantitative differences. The development of this system would provide some standardized set of references for defining terms. It is unlikely that one set of terms will be accepted and found to be generally useful in the variety of settings in which problems of mental retardation are of concern, but a standard system of defining terms would provide a common basis for communication and translation from one set of usages to another. Further research might investigate the interrelationships among the various dimensions or might be directed at methods of summarizing the descriptive data, using various scores, cut-off points, or profiles, and relating this information to educational and therapeutic goals.
