Changing attitudes : a strategy for motivating students to learn by Vincent Ryan Ruggiero( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new and practical way to look at students' negative attitudes toward school and schoolwork ... and what you can do about it!" "Changing Attitudes is the first and only handbook to address the growing problem of negative attitudes. By using informal logic (critical thinking) you can now correct negative attitudes and thereby motivate your students to learn. The book lays out a three-step strategy: (1) Identify negative attitudes; (2) Show students how to express those attitudes as ideas; (3) Help students analyze the ideas and reach their own conclusions as to their validity. If some of your students hate school and lack respect for teachers, here's how to start correcting their negative attitudes!" "The book offers techniques for identifying and classifying the most harmful attitudes, to expose the fallacious thinking underlying them; contemporary examples to help you and your students understand and use informal logic to critically examine negative attitudes; tips on guiding students in analyzing their negative thoughts, so they can understand why they feel that way - and why their attitudes are wrong; and suggestions on modifying classroom methods, to: (1) reduce the number of negative attitudes and (2) transform negative attitudes into positive ones."--Jacket

Corrupted culture : rediscovering America's enduring principles, values, and common sense by Vincent Ryan Ruggiero( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poor education, bad parenting, a sense of entitlement, the "wasteland" of television, and more. These are the symptoms of a culture in decline. While it's easy to recite a litany of our problems, identifying their root causes requires more than the facile commentary offered by media pundits. This in-depth historical analysis of cultural trends in American traces the problems of our current malaise back to two profoundly misguided views of human nature that were pervasive in this country in the twentieth century. The first was hereditarianism, which was highly influential until the end of World War II. The second was humanistic psychology, which emerged after the war as a reaction against negativism. Citing a host of original sources, Ruggiero shows that while the hereditarians advanced the absurdly pessimistic view that biology is destiny, humanistic psychology countered with an absurdly optimistic view of human nature. He also demonstrates that the flaws of both hereditarianism and humanistic psychology are observable in today's resurgent progressivism. Beyond critique, Ruggiero presents a compelling case for restoring the traditional principles and values associated with the Western view of human nature. In this view, human nature is inherently imperfect but has the potential for goodness and wisdom; intelligence is the sum of inherited capacity and performance attained through mental training and acquired knowledge; reason is more reliable than feelings; and self-esteem is the result of actual achievement. Blending thorough research with incisive analysis, Ruggiero shows the relevance of recent intellectual history to today's social problems and charts a course for a better future
