When the kids come first : enhancing self esteem by James A Beane( Book )

3 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph promotes the enhancement of self-esteem as a basic responsibility of middle level schools. Chapter 1 makes a case for the importance of self-perception, and describes a rationale specifically focused on early adolescents that is based on history, contemporary issues, and research. Chapter 2 analyzes changes in the adolescent's self-perception. Unpredictable changes in the intellectual, feeling, and physical domains mandate the adolescent to undertake a re-thinking of self-perceptions in all dimensions at this age. Chapter 3 looks at the structures which define and regulate day-to-day life in the school. These institutional features include such things as climate, decision-making processes, rules and regulations, reward and punishment systems, grouping, relations with the outside world, and morale. It is noted that the way in which these features are planned or carried out may contribute to positive self-perceptions or they may debilitate self-worth. Chapter 4 considers two phases of planning to enhance self-perceptions. One involves ideas for various components in teaching and learning situations. The other is a brief description of premium teaching procedures and programs. Appendices include an illustrative unit, issues from the perspective of seventh graders, and self-assessment checklists.

The Eight-Year Study revisited : lessons from the past for the present by Richard P Lipka( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the Eight-Year Study, or "Adventure in American Education," which was a landmark experiment in curriculum reform in 30 American high schools from 1933 to 1939. The study not only investigated the college success of the graduates of the 30 schools that were engaged in revising their curricula, but also attempted to stimulate secondary schools to develop better college preparatory programs. After establishing the context for the study in an introductory chapter, the volume presents a detailed analysis, describing the lessons learned regarding the implementation of change in education. The research methodology and the pioneering work in developing instruments that were used in the study, though frequently overlooked in retrospective works, are examined at length, particularly as they relate to noncognitive components of education. Likewise, the book looks at the graduates of the 30 experimental schools and assesses how they compared in college with their paired control partners. An analysis of the state of secondary education during the 1930s is also provided. The concluding chapter reviews the major findings of the study and puts them into a middle-school perspective. It identifies 12 areas that the Eight-Year Study speaks to and how these relate to the middle-level education-reform effort. (Rjm)

Developmental and Sex Differences in the Early Mentions of Kindergarten Through Twelfth Graders' Spontaneous Self-Perceptions: Implications for Educational Research and Practice by Thomas M Brinthaupt( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Reactive scales dominate the self-concept field. Using these instruments leaves two questions unanswered. First, if left to his/her own devices would the individual even think of him/herself in terms of that dimension? Second, what are the dimensions in terms of which individuals do think of themselves? With these two questions in mind, 536 kindergarten through 12th-graders were asked the single question: "Tell me about yourself?" All statements in every student's protocol were analyzed on the basis of self-concept content, self-esteem judgments, and whether the mentions appeared early or late in the protocol. When the entire protocol was considered, trends emerged which are consistent with previous research on self-concept development. One of the numerous findings was support for an ontogenetic shift in self-concept characterized as: "I am what I own" to "I am what I do" to "I am what I am." All the findings were discussed by indicating ways for curriculum planners to respond to the data. (Author/PN)

Some existing community projects involving secondary students are then described. Practical matters involved in developing community service programs are discussed.
