The Emerging student : relationships among the cognitive, social and physical domains of development by Alberta( Book )

3 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document completes a series of four monographs that comprise a framework for describing children's development through the school years. Each monograph incorporates insights gained through research and practice. As a resource designed primarily for teachers, administrators, and curriculum designers, the document looks at the whole child as a productive learner who integrates the cognitive, social, and physical developmental domains; hence emphasizes the need for providing balanced curriculum and instruction. Language development is discussed in terms of: (1) the process of learning oral language from birth to age six and from age six on; (2) the relationship between language and thought; (3) conditions that facilitate language learning; (4) the process of learning written language through reading and writing; (5) students' attitudes toward literature; and (6) emergent literacy. Research on the relationship between motivation and achievement is reviewed, and several motivational teaching strategies are provided. Dropout prevention is also discussed. The importance of self-image and its link to school achievement is emphasized. School effectiveness is discussed in terms of curricula, teacher effectiveness, supportive classrooms, and materials. It is recommended that learning be viewed as an integrated activity that includes the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Appended are lists of 155 references and 14 Alberta Education documents. (GLR)

Focus on current affairs : a monograph for secondary social studies teachers by Margaret A Clarke( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document suggests that the main purpose of the study of current affairs in the social studies program in Alberta, Canada, is to add relevance, interest, and immediacy. It defines current affairs as the study of news events presented by the media. Because the study of current affairs must be tied to the achievement of social studies objectives, the general purpose of the monograph is to provide suggestions for teachers on how current affairs can be used in order to attain these important objectives. In discussing the study of controversial topics, the argument is made that issues related to the study of curriculum topics have a defensible place and purpose. This monograph presents examples to illustrate what is meant by "structured and disciplined" inquiry. Current affairs issues, by their very nature, are more likely to be relevant, meaningful, and of interest to students, yet directly linked to the required course objectives. The study of current affairs in social studies provides a rich field for the development of abilities and dispositions toward critical thinking. Although emotional discussions may do more to reinforce or confuse, rather than clarify or change, existing beliefs, teachers who are critical minded in their approach to current affairs will more likely be able to promote critical mindedness in their students. The teaching of critical thinking has a natural place and role in social studies instruction. The accumulation of knowledge alone is training. The application of critical thinking to a field of knowledge is education. Two approaches to the study of current affairs are explored. (DK)
