Eager to learn : educating our preschoolers by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the report of research carried out at the request of the US Department of Education's Office of Educational Research and Improvement, the National Research Council (which was responsible for this publication), and the Office of Special Education programs, among others. Many of the papers were first delivered at a workshop at the National Academy of Science in April 1999. The findings of the report are summarized in an initial chapter; subsequent chapters report on the topics of the science of learning, individual and cultural variations and their effect on learning, an assessment of preschool programs in the US, curriculum and pedagogy, standardized assessment, teacher training, and program and practice standards. Each chapter is supported with statistics and references to other studies. A comprehensive bibliography is included
Texas death row by Ken Light( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ken Light and his camera were permitted unparalleled access to Texas death row. His stark, powerful images show where and how the condemned live. In the year he took these pictures, fourteen men were executed in Texas. Suzanne Donovan's essay draws upon her interviews with the condemned men and with prison authorities, family members, and members of victims' families. Whoever opens this book will want to look away, for the pictures and words force us to gaze intimately into the eye of death. Light's photographs make us ask what we have done in sanctioning execution. With ninety percent approval, no other place in America has approved the death sentence so overwhelmingly as Texas. Ken Light's raw, austere photographs and the accompanying text reveal what we have created in the hopeless world of court-ordered death. Who are the men who exist there? What do they look like? How do they survive, and what are the rhythms of their daily lives? While outsiders focus on the final act of execution, the real drama unfolds each day in this arcane world
Minority students in special and gifted education by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special education and gifted and talented programs were designed for children whose educational needs are not well met in regular classrooms. From their inceptions, these programs have had disproportionate representation of racial and ethnic minority students. What causes this disproportion? Is it a problem? This book considers possible contributors to that disparity, including early biological and environmental influences and inequities in opportunities for preschool and K-12 education, as well as the possibilities of bias in the referral and assessment system that leads to placement in special programs. It examines the data on early childhood experience, on differences in educational opportunity, and on referral and placement
How people learn : bridging research and practice by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and German and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report asks how the insights from the research reviewed in the National Research Council's "How People Learn" (1999) can be incorporated into classroom practice. The report also suggests a research and development agenda that would inform and stimulate the required change. Following an introductory chapter that frames the agenda of the report, chapter 2 summarizes some of the key findings from "How People Learn" and outlines implications of those findings for teaching and for designing classroom environments. "How People Learn" is a large report; this document focuses on the findings and messages that are most relevant to classroom practice. Chapter 3 summarizes responses from educators and policymakers that were offered at a conference and workshop that discussed "How People Learn." More specific suggestions made by conference and workshop participants are incorporated into chapter 4, in which the workshop committee presents its recommendations for a research and development agenda. The agenda is organized around: (1) educational materials; (2) preservice and inservice education; (3) public policy; and (4) public opinion and the media. Appendixes list meeting participants with their biographical sketches. (Contains 58 references.) (Sld)
Learning and instruction : a SERP research agenda by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Strategic Education Research Partnership (SERP) is a bold, ambitious plan that proposes a revolutionary program of education research and development. Its purpose is to construct a powerful knowledge base, derived from both research and practice, that will support the efforts of teachers, school administrators, colleges of education, and policy officials - with the ultimate goal of significantly improving student learning." "With a vision of multiple networks through which focused, coordinated, and sustained programs of research and development would be carried out - often in schools or school districts that serve as field sites - the National Research Council proposed an organizational design that would implement the essential mission of SERP. The essence of that plan was captured in Strategic Education Research Partnership. Following up with specifics on one of the networks proposed in that earlier book, Learning and Instruction details the kind of research and development that would make a genuine difference to teaching and learning in three subject areas - reading, mathematics, and science." "The proposals in this book have the potential to substantially improve the knowledge base that supports teaching and learning by pursuing answers to questions at the core of teaching practice. It calls for the linking of research and development including instructional programs, assessment tools, teacher education programs and materials. Best of all, the book provides a solid framework for a program of research and development that will be genuinely useful to classroom teachers."--Jacket
Strategic education research partnership by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Envision a cadre of leading scientists and practitioners working collaboratively on a highly focused program of education research that is tightly coupled with practice. Much of the research is carried out in school settings. Research influences educational practice, and the outcomes in practice inform further research efforts. The Strategic Education Research Partnership (SERP) is designed to make this vision a reality. It proposes a large-scale, coherent program of research and development that would put the problems of educational practice at its center, and focus on all stages necessary to influence practice. These include theory testing, the development and evaluation of instructional programs, the study of practice in context, and attention to taking innovations to scale
