"This book focuses on the challenge of integrating technology as part of larger school improvement efforts. If offers valuable insights that will help those trying to scale up any form of improved educational policy or practice." "Drawing from the information presented at a conference sponsored by the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Technology in Education Consortium, leading educators, researchers, and policymakers, Scaling Up Success translates theory into practice and provides a hands-on resource that clearly describes different models for "scaling up" success. This important resource is filled with illustrative examples of best practices that are grounded in real-life case studies of technology-based educational innovation." "Scaling Up Success offers a much-needed resource for educators, policymakers and leaders who must comply with the mandate to enact research-based practice and will serve as a guide to benefit present and future efforts to strengthening American education."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Making Learning Visible Project draws attention to the power of the group as a learning environment. In the first phase of MLV (1997-1999), Project Zero, a research group at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, in collaboration with the Municipal Infant-toddler Centers and Preschools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, explored documentation as a central component of group learning and produced a book: Making learning visible: children as individual and group learners. In phase II (1999-2002) Project Zero researchers collaborated with prekindergarden to grade 8 teachers from the Cambridge Children's Center and the Cambridgeport School in Cambridge, MA and the Exra H. Baker and John Simpkins schools in the Dennis-Yarmouth, MA school district. Together they explored how the ideas emerging from the Italian context and practices could enhance preschool, elementary, and middle-school education in the United States--p. X

The development of metaphoric operations : final report by Ellen Winner( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a three-year period, researchers at Harvard Project Zero investigated metaphoric abilities in children, documenting the development of their metaphoric production, comprehension, and preference, as well as the interrelationships among these skills. Two other areas of literary skills that were investigated were the child's understanding of nonliteral "tropes," such as irony and understatement, and the child's understanding of the role of fantasy and imagination in the construction of a fictional world. This report discusses the researchers' principal findings, placed in the context of previous work conducted in these areas of study. The first section of the report explores the development of metaphoric production including first metaphors, the decline of metaphor production in the elementary school years, and the production of analogies during the elementary school years. The second section discusses the development of metaphoric comprehension, with emphasis given to the ways children interpret metaphors and the misunderstanding of the metaphor as a problem of competence or performance. The three remaining sections explore the development of metaphoric preferences, understanding other kinds of figurative language, and understanding the role of imagination in constructing a story. Attached is a two-page reference list, along with examples of student responses to such metaphors as magical, metonymic, primitive, genuine, inappropriate, and incomplete. (Hod)
The stages in a scholar's life by Charles Vert Willie( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major purpose of this study was to identify the five most outstanding black scholars in the social sciences and humanities in the United States and to determine how they achieved eminence. The study focuses on their unfolding careers, the decisive events in their lives, interconnections in their life histories, and social interaction between them and others in society. Five hundred and fifty-four members of social science and humanities professional associations ranked and nominated the black scholars. These respondents also filled out a brief questionnaire that included information on their own educational and occupational mobility and success. The five nominated scholars were John Hope Franklin, W. Arthur Lewis, Kenneth B. Clark, Matthew Holden, Jr., And Darwin T. Turner. These scholars were asked questions about family background and economic circumstances; community race-relations climate; parent's philosophy of education; experiences in school, college, and graduate education; and career development. Using the event-structure theoretical framework of Allport, the critical events in the life histories of the five scholars were identified and case studies prepared. Among the findings are that career, education, and family development processes are relatively independent in that each process has a life-range of its own and a sequence of stages. The last part of the document contains a survey of the education and careers of respondents, which includes a demographic analysis of the study sample and an examination of career patterns by age and race. Last, the five outstanding scholars are compared to the national sample which ranked them. (Ne)
Teacher unions, school staffing, and reform by Susan Moore Johnson( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To clarify the role of collective bargaining in defining and reforming local school district staffing policies, an analysis was made of 144 teacher contracts gathered from a stratified, random sample of districts. In five of these districts, selected for their diversity on a number of variables (state, region, size, labor history, contract, and union affiliation), documents were analyzed, offices and schools visited, and interviews conducted with 187 teachers, principals, union leaders, and central office administrators. The analysis of contract contents suggests that (1) collective bargaining agreements are neither as comprehensive nor prescriptive as some might believe; (2) much contract language about staffing specifies the prerogatives of management; (3) in some cases, contract language increased the standards of staffing beyond those prescribed by state law; (4) seniority was less prominent than expected; and (5) principals' rights to manage the staffing of their schools were not clearly defined by contract. Studying reform in the five sample districts revealed that districts with a history of cooperative relationships dealt more successfully with initiatives for change. Proposals more likely to be adopted were those with local origins and support for more time for instruction, more stability for schools, and more instructional autonomy for teachers. (Mlf)
