Beyond the classroom : why school reform has failed and what parents need to do by Laurence D Steinberg( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 1,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The other great influence on school performance, according to the study reported in this book, is the peer group. Children are strongly influenced by their friends' attitudes toward school. As a group, children whose friends believe that hard work earns rewards and who value good grades do well in school. Unfortunately, according to the study, fewer than one-fifth of all students say that their friends believe it is important to get good grades. For the most part, adolescent peer culture demeans school success and scorns those students who try to do well in school. The peer culture is so powerful that it can even undermine the positive contributions of parents
Adolescents after divorce by Christy M Buchanan( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When their parents divorce, some children falter and others thrive. This book asks why. Is it the custody arrangement? A parent's new partner? Conflict or consistency between the two households? Adolescents after Divorce follows teenagers from 1,100 divorcing families to discover what makes the difference. Focusing on a period beginning four years after the divorce, the authors have the articulate, often insightful help of their subjects in exploring the altered conditions of their lives. These teenagers come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some are functioning well. Some are faring poorly. The authors examine the full variety of situations in which these children find themselves once the initial disruption has passed - whether parents remarry or repartner, how parents relate to each other and to their children, and how life in two homes is integrated. Certain findings emerge - for instance, remarried new partners are better accepted than cohabiting new partners. And when parents' relations are amicable, adolescents in dual custody are less likely than other adolescents to experience loyalty conflicts. The authors also consider the effects of visitation arrangements, The demands made and the goals set within each home, and the emotional closeness of the residential parent to the child. A mine of information on a topic that touches so many Americans, this study will be crucial for researchers, counselors, lawyers, judges, and parents

Negative correlates of part-time employment during adolescence : replication and elaboration by Laurence D Steinberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the relation between part-time employment and adolescent behavior and development in a multi-ethnic, multi-class sample of approximately 4,000 15- through 18-year-olds. The results indicated that long work hours during the school year were associated with diminished investment in schooling and lowered school performance, increased psychological distress and somatic complaints, higher rates of drug and alcohol use, higher rates of delinquency, and greater autonomy from parental control. Workers did not have any advantages over nonworkers with respect to self-reliance, work orientation, or self-esteem. The correlates of school-year employment were closely linked to the number of hours worked each week and generally cut across ethnic, socioeconomic, and age groups, although the association between hours of employment and poor school performance was clearer among White and Asian-American adolescents than their peers. Nevertheless, in no ethnic or socioeconomic group were the correlates of employment positive, either in terms of lower rates of dysfunctional behavior, better school performance, or enhanced psychosocial well-being. These and similar findings from previous research suggest that parents, educational practitioners, and policy-makers should continue to monitor the number of weekly hours adolescents work during the school year.

The evaluation of university teachers : an application of a theory of evaluation and authority by Robert E Hind( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports on an investigation of the evaluation of teaching and research at Stanford University in the School of Humanities and Sciences. It was found that professional colleagues had far more influence on organizational rewards and penalties than did administrative superiors. Evaluations of research had far more influence than did evaluations of teaching. Since the faculty expended considerable effort on teaching, many wanted a better balance between effort and reward. For teaching, students were influential evaluators, since teaching performances were more visible to them. For research, colleagues in other institutions were influential evaluators, since the visibility of published research made the boundaries of the University permeable. Overall, for both teaching and research, department colleagues and department heads were the most influential evaluators. Faculty members' satisfaction with the evaluation process was positively associated with the perceived dependence of their discipline on theory. Greater dependence on theory in a discipline was associated with more perceived agreement among evaluators, and more agreement among evaluators was positively related to satisfaction with the evaluation system.

Evaluation and authority in alternative schools and public schools by Brian Leon McCauley( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study attempted to (1) gather systematic and objective data on the alternative school and (2) identify the perceptions of teachers in both alternative and public schools about the tasks they perform and the parents and students with whom they deal. The study focused on authority structures and processes of evaluation. Data were collected on 24 alternative schools and five public schools by means of observation in the schools and by a questionnaire administered to 200 elementary and secondary teachers. Four teaching tasks were identified: Teaching Subject Matter, Character Development, Maintaining Control, and Record Keeping. Data revealed that there was more emphasis on Character Development in alternative schools and more emphasis on Teaching Subject Matter and Maintaining Control in public schools. Although public school teachers had and desired high levels of autonomy, alternative-school teachers had and wanted higher levels. It was also shown that, although the alternative-school teachers were evaluated more often and received more negative evaluations than public school teachers, for both samples evaluation was infrequent. Both groups believed that training was of little importance for successful teaching, that experience in the classroom was more helpful, and that the personality of the teacher was the most important factor in successful teaching.
