Community colleges : a model for Latin America?( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heralded as one of the great educational innovations of the 20th century, community colleges have played a crucial role in democratizing and expanding post-secondary education. In the United States and Europe, one- and two-year education and training programs now absorb at least half of all high school graduates. Community Colleges: A Model for Latin America? explores how these institutions can help address the very challenges faced by post-secondary education in the region: an expanding and heterogeneous clientele, a lack of alternative social mobility options for people unable to attend traditional universities, and the need for more relevant curriculum that emphasizes knowledge and skills better attuned to the needs of the job market. The book aims to foster the development of effective community college models in Latin America by discussing the issues and obstacles from the North American experience in terms of financing, accreditation, prestige, and a regulatory and incentive framework. Latin America is far behind Europe and the United States in developing diverse, quality programs for its growing post-secondary population, which includes many people previously excluded from higher education. Schools that offer one- and two-year programs generally serve the least affluent and politically influential groups, so they often are short-changed in the allocation of funds. Yet, as demand for these programs grows, educators and ministries are left grappling to find new teaching methods, identify new markets for graduates, and better match students with real labor market demand. The community college model may be a source of inspiration for Latin America's efforts to reach out to this new educational clientele

Making teaching visible : documenting individual and group learning as professional development : a Making Learning Visible monograph( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 95 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
New roles for educators, a sourcebook of career information prepared for the Harvard Graduate School of Education Placement Office by Rita E Weathersby( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a sourcebook with two purposes, one philosophical and the other practical. It is a collection of information obtained through a questionnaire about the organizations, people, and programs currently involved in American education. It is hoped that the information will increase communication among agencies and individuals in education. This should result in higher standards of performance at all levels and a more accurate matching of resources and personnel. The second, more practical goal is that of providing a sourcebook of background information for people designing unconventional, or nonteaching, careers in education. The book discusses the role of industry, government (federal and state), schools and nonprofit organizations (research centers, foundations, and associations), and community organizations in education. For each of these sectors, a brief overview is given, followed by name, address, and descriptive profiles of specific corporations, agencies, and organizations. A section on "How to Find New Careers" gives advice on developing new career ideas and job hunting strategies. This is followed by profiles of individuals who have successfully created a new career in education. (DMT)

Teacher unions, school staffing, and reform by Susan Moore Johnson( Book )

5 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 68 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)

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

4 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)
