Scholarship assessed : evaluation of the professoriate by Charles E Glassick( Book )

"Begun under the oversight of Ernest L. Boyer and completed by authors Glassick, Huber, and Maeroff, Scholarship Assessed examines the changing nature of scholarship in today's colleges and universities. It proposes new standards for assessing scholarship and evaluating faculty with special emphasis on methods for documenting effective scholarship. Based on the findings of the Carnegie Foundation's National Survey on the Reexamination of Faculty Roles and Rewards, this is an excellent resource for anyone engaged in the debate about creating institutional standards of rigor and quality in our colleges and universities."--Jacket

The empowerment of teachers : overcoming the crisis of confidence by Gene I Maeroff( Book )

9 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the Rockefeller Foundation's project chart (Collaboratives for Humanities and Arts Teaching) as a basis for the study, this book examines the demoralization and lack of status that plague the teaching profession today. The premise of the book is that doors will open toward empowerment if teachers are given the proper circumstances to become more expert as teachers. By simultaneously conferring status on teachers, building up their knowledge base, and giving them access to the processes of decision making, they would be treated with more dignity, would feel better about themselves, would have more to say about the way they teach, and could more readily influence decisions affecting the schools.

The school-smart parent by Gene I Maeroff( Book )

4 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A commonsense book that helps parents help their children get the most out of learning and school by indicating what should be happening at given levels of the child's education. FROM CHAPTER ONE: "And so it is clear that the more parents can do to help their children reach full potential in school, the more likely the children are to find fulfillment in the competitive era ahead. This is a book meant to help parents achieve that goal; it is a blueprint for success. Parents must start early to groom their children for school. By the time a child is three years old, a substantial portion of his or her intelligence has already developed. And by the age of six, according to some experts, the child's whole future is determined."

Building blocks : making children successful in the early years of school by Gene I Maeroff( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A student's entire journey along the educational spectrum is affected by what occurs--and, crucially, by what does not occur--before the age of eight or nine. Yet early learning has never received the attention it deserves and needs. In his latest book, education expert Gene Maeroff takes a hard look at early learning and the primary grades of schooling. Building Blocks offers a concrete and groundbreaking strategy for improving early education. Filled with colorful descriptions and anecdotes from Maeroff's visits to schools around the country, Building Blocks creates a rich portrait of education in America, ranging from math lessons imported from Singapore in Massachusetts to serious but joyful kindergartens in California. He speaks of the need for schools to prepare for the burgeoning enrollment of youngsters from immigrant families and for all children to acquire the habits and dispositions that will make them committed and productive students. Maeroff issues a call to action for policy makers and parents alike."--Publisher's website
Team building for school change : equipping teachers for new roles by Gene I Maeroff( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on teacher teams and their use as a lever for change, the author examines the importance of teachers becoming knowledgeable, skilled, and increasingly articulate about their leadership and participation so that they may take their rightful place in the school reform movement. Ten chapters focus on teams sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation, in which volunteer teams of teachers, learning how to lead the change process, were a primary intervention for professional development and eventual school change. Chapter titles and topics are as follows: (1) "a Climate for Team Building" covers the teacher role and avenues for teacher renewal; (2) "An Agenda for Team Building" discusses the evolution of team building and examples of academies that inservice teachers in the team process; (3) "Selecting Teams" covers choosing a school, the team relationship to the school, and selection of individuals to attend an academy; (4) "How an Academy Happens" investigates the demand of an academy schedule, personal expectations of team building, analyzing and imagining, planning for the return to the school, and teachers as leaders; (5) "Bonding and Growing" discusses the Outward Bound approach, a proper setting for team building, getting to know each other, and group process skills; (6) "The Team and the Principal" include the topics of principals as members of teams, the need for confident principals, new allies for the principal, the principal as enabler, and support of the central administration; (7) "The Team Returns" discusses spreading ownership, personal transformation, schoolwide transformation, and the role of facilitator; (8) "Making Time for Teams" looks into the new schedules for new responsibilities and some ways to reallocate time; (9) "Obstacles to Teams" covers societal factors, budgets, unions, teacher knowledge and dedication, team function, and continuity; and (10) "Team Building in the Long Run" closes the book with lessons for professional development.

The learning connection : new partnerships between schools and colleges by Gene I Maeroff( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The educational chasm between schools and colleges is an indication of dysfunction. It is becoming increasingly recognized as a major impediment to the successful education of all students. High standards and improved schools and colleges will ultimately depend on the extent to which this gap is narrowed. This book describes 12 programs that are attempting to overcome the disadvantages of this separation. These case studies are organized around five themes--governance, equity, standards, teacher preparation, and community building. Thirteen chapters include: (1) "The Boston University--Chelsea Partnership" (Lee D. Mitgang); (2) "An Alliance in Pueblo" (Janet Bingham, Sam Bingham, and Dave Curtin); (3) "Equalizing Opportunity in California" (Kenneth R. Weiss); (4) "Middle College High School in Memphis" (Mickie Anderson); (5) "The El Paso Collaborative for Academic Achievement" (Duchesne Paul Drew); (6) "Maryland's k-16 Partnership" (Mike Bowler); (7) "pass: Oregon's New Path to College" (William Graves); (8) "Georgia's p-16 Initiative" (Ernie Suggs); (9) "Professional Practice Schools in Cincinnati" (Lonnie Harp); (10) "Jackson State's Effort to Help Teachers in Mississippi" (Monique Fields); (11) "Penn and West Philadelphia" (Dale Mezzacappa); and (12) "Trinity Helps Hartford Struggle Back" (Rick Green). The concluding chapter identifies policy issues and the directions that should be pursued to initiate and support promising collaborative programs. An appendix contains relevant questions to consider. (Rt)

School boards in America : a flawed exercise in democracy by Gene I Maeroff( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Local school boards in the United States spend almost $600 billion of the public's money and employ millions of Americans. They have a prime role, along with the home, in shaping the future for the country's young. Yet the more than 14,000 boards of education are obscure and most people have not the vaguest notion of how they operate and what impact they have. School Boards in America aims to provide a wide audience - educators and college students, board members, policymakers, parents and other taxpayers, and just about anyone interested in public affairs - with an inside view that will forever affect the ways in which they look at public schools and how they are governed

Reforming a school system, reviving a city : the promise of say yes to education in Syracuse by Gene I Maeroff( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can a bold investment in education turn around the economy of an entire city? Gene I. Maeroff, a former education reporter for the New York Times, explores how the nonprofit group Say Yes to Education has instituted a network of reforms in Syracuse, New York, that supports students at every level from kindergarten through college. He traces out how Say Yes and the Syracuse school district built a coalition of partners in business, education, and local and state government, implemented a series of programs to improve the school system, and reached out to support students. Telling the story and identifying the strengths of this remarkable and replicable program, Maeroff shows how this focused, directed, and broad-based coalition has created a model for reviving the economy and civic fabric of American cities by investing in children's education"--

Teaching and learning in English urban schools : a report of a study visit by Gene I Maeroff( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The challenges facing urban elementary and secondary schools are like those facing suburban and rural schools, but there are complex circumstances that complicate efforts by urban school systems to carry out their mission. Schools in the cities have more students from impoverished homes, more foreign-born or minority group students, and more students suffering disabilities and shakier sources of financial support. Urban schools operate amid violence, crime, drug abuse, unemployment, poor housing, and poor public services. Educators in the United States and England looked at the nature of urban education as common ground for professional exchange. In 1987, English educators met with their U.S. colleagues and then visited U.S. elementary and secondary schools. In 1990, 60 U.S. educators met with British colleagues at a conference in London, and then visited urban schools throughout England. The paper presents the collective observations of the U.S. educators taken from summary sheets and diaries kept during the visit, as well as from discussions held at a retreat and from written summations. Nine sections deal with the following topics: overview of the organization of English schools; the setting; the quality, nature, and substance of teaching and learning; assessment and accountability; equity and access; teachers; supervision; governance and management; parents and external influences; and implications for practice and policies in the United States in regard to governance, national standards, assessment, principals, teachers, building community, organization and content, and equity.
