Walking dunes : a novel by Sandra Jean Scofield( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and German and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sandhills stretch across the West Texas plains for 60 miles. As much as ten miles wide in places, they are a gleaming, sugary whiteness. The winds keep a trickle of sand moving on their peaks; in high winds the sand shifts so fast they say the dunes walk. So, too, can a handsome young man’s intellect and sensibility belie his unreliable character; so, too, can his sense of identity shift as he is buffeted by the storm of circumstance a single fateful year brings. Eighteen year old David Puckett is torn between his desire for and his fear of intimacy—between his yearning for two very different definitions of success. Artistry and passion are embodied in one girl, the avoidance of intimacy and the path to power in another. His story is set in the late 1950s, an era that has become mythologized as an age of carefree innocence and conservative consensus. Walking Dunes gives us another glimpse of life as it lay on the lip of the ’60s, life as beset by poverty, violence, and misery as it was buoyed by rock and roll, television, and the explosion of the suburbs. There is, too, in David’s story the poignancy of a failed family, the sweet awkwardness of young love, the fierceness of early ambition, the bitterness of loss. The lives of teenagers, so often perceived as trivial and commonplace, surprise and ultimately shock the reader, as a boy sets the course on which he will become a man

Reading for writing : strategies for teaching response patterns appropriate for low-achieving readers by Sandra Jean Scofield( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing from research and from classroom experiences, this paper suggests five strategies for use by reading teachers in helping low-achieving students write responses to comprehension questions. The strategies call for the teacher to: (1) analyze questions carefully and sequence them according to difficulty; (2) give students steps to follow in finding and verifying answers, and offer reinforcement of those steps; (3) provide ample oral practice with different types of questions and then give students ample prompts until they are comfortable with the question type; (4) respond to the process going on with a student, rather than to just the answer he or she gives; and (5) share strategies with content area teachers.

A Discussion of the Structure of Intellect Test and Curriculum Model by Sandra Jean Scofield( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Structure of Intellect (soi) learning abilities test and curriculum emphasize teaching that promotes individualized learning and divergent thinking and recognize special problems in identifying underachievers, minority gifted students, and differing abilities in boys and girls. The model addresses these variations by taking the view that cognitive growth can be directly and systematically fostered. Guilford's model of intellect, composed of operations, content, and products, is adapted to the soi model which is a factor analytic approach defining a proliferation of behaviors in 17 subtests. More information about more abilities is more finely drawn. Templates are used to categorize major iq tests into soi categories; correlation studies are used to investigate soi validity. Foundational abilities and enabling skills in reading; and abilities in arithmetic, mathematics, writing readiness, and creativity are measured. The test's particular value is as a "more information" source in making decisions where prior information is incomplete, and soi provides profiles of children who have been difficult to assess. The soi test and curriculum model is a remediation system identifying strengths as tools for improving disabling areas. Soi is largely associated with gifted education but can positively affect the general classroom. Soi planning, training, and implementation must consider start-up time, staffing, and cost factor alternatives. (Cm)
Occasions of sin : a memoir by Sandra Jean Scofield( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1959, when Sandra Scofield was fifteen, she came home to stay in West Texas after years in Catholic boarding schools. She believed her presence would inspire her invalid mother to live. What she found--a fractured family; a distracted, dying mother--nudged her into the tumult of late adolescence and the awakening of her sexuality. More than forty years later, Scofield looks back on her Catholic girlhood and the ways in which her relationship with her mother was grounded in their intertwined aspirations for holiness, achievement, and love. Writing on the brink of old age, she looks back ruefully but without bitterness, forgiving both her mother's frailty and her own.--From publisher description
