Memory development between 2 and 20 by Wolfgang Schneider( Book )
22 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this second edition of Memory Development Between Two and Twenty, Schneider and Pressley completely update and expand on the "good information processing" perspective developed in the first edition. In this edition, the authors continue to argue that development of strategies and metamemory is critical to memory development. The representation and development of knowledge, however, receives much more complete treatment in this revision. In addition to revisiting traditional controversies in memory development in light of recent analyses, the authors also review the controversies that have emerged in the 1990s, including issues regarding children's eyewitness and autobiographical memories. This book provides comprehensive coverage of what has been and continues to be one of the most important research areas in the field of cognitive development, and what is becoming an important area of concern for many interested in applied developmental psychology."--Jacket

13 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together the existing literature from the various fields in which verbal protocols of reading have been generated. In so doing, the authors provide an organized catalog of all conscious verbal processes reported in studies to date -- the most complete analysis of conscious reading now available in th
Scaffolding student learning : instructional approaches and issues by Kathleen Hogan( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume explores the theory and practice of scaffolding - a style of instruction that provides students with the intellectual support to function at the cutting edge of their individual development. Scaffolding allows students to perform tasks that would be slightly beyond their ability without that assistance and guidance from the teacher. Rather than simply transmitting knowledge, teachers enter into conversational dialogues with students, helping them construct knowledge and understand and develop their thinking processes on instructional tasks. This book addresses the how-tos of scaffolding students who need support in learning and are at risk for failure, as well as strong students who are working to master difficult materials. In a larger sense, this unique and significant collection speaks to the issue of how best to mobilize school resources for student benefit
Teaching service and alternative teacher education : Notre Dame's Alliance for Catholic Education ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Alliance for Catholic Education, referred to most commonly by its acronym ACE, is one of the best known and widely respected programs at the University of Notre Dame. Established in 1994 by Fr. Timothy Scully, C.S.C., and Fr. Sean McGraw, C.S.C., ACE places more than 150 college graduates in over one hundred parochial schools throughout the United States. The overarching purpose of ACE is to improve Catholic schools, especially in underprivileged areas of the U.S., by enabling exceptionally talented students to teach in them. ACE, in turn, offers students two years of meaningful service and a graduate degree from Notre Dame. In this book, Michael Pressley and his fellow contributors provide the history of ACE. They also offer a blueprint for other educational institutions interested in implementing a similar program. Covering the fundamentals of starting and maintaining a program like ACE, the book discusses motivation, planning, intellectual foundations, and community building. It also tackles practical issues such as financing the program, obtaining accreditation, and recruiting teachers
