Teaching for thinking by James W Keefe( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents a variety of current efforts to incorporate thought-provoking methods into teaching. There are three sections. "Curriculum Developments" defines key curricular terms and offers a framework and general examples of teaching tactics. In this section, Barbara Presseisen distinguishes thinking from other cognitive activities and shows how "conation" (motivation and striving) and knowledge representation are being used to promote thinking. Robert Marzano discusses three domains (learning to learn, content thinking, and reasoning) assignable to specific subjects, and Francis Schrag describes how to promote deep thinking in the classroom. "Teaching and Assessment" describes new methods for teaching thinking and assessing student progress. Barak Rosenshine and Joseph Guenther describe "scaffolding" (temporary instructional supports), and Ann Brown and Joseph Campione urge incorporation of thinking into all school programs through "reciprocal teaching" strategies. Charles Letteri's essay focuses on assessing students' learning strengths and weaknesses as a diagnostic tool for guiding individualized and group programs to improve classroom performance. Robert Ennis discusses several tests and techniques for measuring thinking for accountability. "Concluding Perspectives" synthesizes research on practical methods of teaching thinking in essays contributed by Barry Beyer, Robert Sternberg, and James Keefe. Most chapters contain reading suggestions. (Mlh)

World class schools : an evolving concept by John M Jenkins( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concept of "world class," often used in reference to education, lacks a precise, universal definition. This book presents case studies of exemplary schools. The foreword by Fenwick W. English presents a developmental concept of world-class education, in which fair and comparable standards, with sufficient room for sociocultural differences among nations, would be the norm. Following the introduction and overview by Herbert J. Wahlberg, the case-study chapters are: (1) "The Thomas Haney Centre: a School for All Reasons" (John M. Jenkins); (2) "The Key Renaissance Middle School: Extending the Notion of Multiple Intelligences" (Patricia J. Bolanos); (3) "Littleton High School: Direction 2000--Rethinking the American High School" (Tim Westerberg, Rosalind Thomas, and Thomas Stein); (4) "Urban Academy: a Success Story" (Mary Ann Raywid); (5) "The Westside Example: Facilitating High Commitment" (BetsAnn Smith); (6) "Lyman High School: Preparing Students for a High Tech World" (Kay F. Bush, Beverley Freeman, and Carlton Henley); (7) "Redwood Valley Middle School: Shared Leadership" (Sharon D. Kruse); and (8) "Wausau East High School's International Baccalaureate: a World-Class Education in Your Own Back Yard" (Mary Ellen Marnholtz). In the concluding chapter: "World Class Schools: What Can We Learn from Examples?" Karen Seashore Louis describes four common features shared by the case-study schools--vision, structure, culture, and leadership--and offers suggestions to principals for implementing them. (Lmi)

Scheduling the middle level school to meet early adolescent needs by Ronald Williamson( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building and implementing a school master schedule is one of a school administrator's most crucial tasks. A master schedule can either create opportunity or hinder teaching students. This is particularly true in middle-level schools, many of which are using information about the learning characteristics of early adolescents to reexamine how students and staff are organized for instruction. The use of teaching teams and block-time scheduling has changed scheduling practices and increased instructional flexibility and responsiveness. This guide offers suggestions regarding the development and implementation of a master schedule, and offers discussion and models of block-time scheduling. Chapters deal with the following topics: middle-level students, scheduling issues and considerations, the flexible block-time schedule, school transition programs, staffing considerations, preparing to schedule, building a block-time schedule, refining the schedule, and opening school. Five appendices contain a scheduling timeline, a letter to staff on master planning, a chart for determining staff levels, a conflict matrix, and factors to consider in selecting a scheduling program. Where applicable, references are included at the end of each chapter. (JPT)
Timepiece, extending and enhancing learning time by National Association of Secondary School Principals (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication offers suggestions for making more productive use of time, a scarce and valued educational resource. The chapter authors, authorities on the use of educational time, write about how to extend and enhance learning time within and outside schools. In "Productive Use of Time," Herbert Walberg describes how learning time can be extended and enhanced by using psychological principles. In "Cycles, Rhythms, and the Meaning of School Time," Michael Connelly and Jean Clandinin suggest that annual cycles of holidays and weekly cycles (such as review and assessment) create rhythms of experience that control the intensity of instruction. Lorin Anderson, in "What Time Tells Us," differentiates among several kinds of educational time to provide insights on classroom management, instructional quality, and student learning. In "Changing the Cosmology of the School Schedule," Fenwick English discusses nonlinear scheduling alternatives. Charles Ballinger argues in "Year-Round Education: It's Time" that it is possible to introduce flexibility into the organization of the school year. Laurence Steinberg shows, in "The Use of Out-of-School Time," that extracurricular activities influence students' learning and classroom engagement. The final chapter summarizes recommendations for extending and enhancing learning time. (Lmi)
