Those good Gertrudes : a social history of women teachers in America by Geraldine Jonçich Clifford( )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 1,698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Those Good Gertrudes explores the professional, civic, and personal roles of women teachers. Its voice, themes, and findings build from the mostly unpublished writings of many women and their families, colleagues, and pupils. Geraldine J. Clifford studied personal history manuscripts in archives and consulted printed autobiographies, diaries, correspondence, oral histories, interviews--even film and fiction--to probe the multifaceted imagery that has surrounded teaching. This work stands alone: it is broad ranging, inclusive, and comparative. It surveys a long past where schoolteaching was essentially men's work, with women relegated to restricted niches such as teaching rudiments of the vernacular language to young children and socializing girls for traditional gender roles. Clifford documents and explains the emergence of women as the prototypical schoolteachers in the United States, a process apparent in the late colonial period and continuing through the nineteenth century, when they became the majority of American public and private schoolteachers. She finds that this trend continues in the twenty-first century, despite the diversion of women to competing professions, a precipitous reduction in the number of Roman Catholic nuns, and repeated efforts and incentives to recruit and retain male teachers. Cross-national comparisons suggest that America's early reliance on women teachers quickened and extended the reach of schools across the nation's social classes, religious and ethnic groupings, and cultural and physical landscapes. The capstone of Clifford’s distinguished career and the definitive book on women teachers in America, Those Good Gertrudes will engage scholars in the history of education and women’s history, teachers past, present, and future, and readers with vivid memories of their own teachers.--Publisher information

"Using biography, autobiography, journals, and letters, Lone Voyagers offers portraits of seven women who were the first of their sex to work as faculty and deans at coeducational universities in the United States and Canada. Most historians of higher education have focused their attention on women's colleges. Here, thanks to the research of seven scholars, are the stories of pathbreakers, pioneers, and models of achievement--stories frequently marked by loneliness, isolation, and solitary triumph."--Back cover

Human nature and the social order by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

10 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents certain facts and principles of psychology which students of sociology, economics, government, law, and other sciences of human affairs need to know. Psychology cannot as yet claim to be an adequate science of human thought, feeling, and action, upon which all the social sciences rest and with which they must agree. Indeed it probably has much more to learn from them, especially from anthropology and history, than they from it. But human biology and psychology make a substantial contribution. They settle certain questions outright and turn the balance for others"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved)

Distortion in the Historiography of American Education The Problem of Silence by Geraldine Jonçich Clifford( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of American education is incomplete. This problem is the result of (1) historical scholars being influenced more by concerns of their own time than by issues of the past, (2) the belief that what is written and said about education is an acceptable representation of what education is, (3) the assumption that educational leaders are spokesmen for the entire educational enterprise, and (4) the presumption that the history of education is solely the history of how education has been imparted. These misconceptions have led educational historiographers to largely ignore accounts of students, parents, and teachers throughout the history of American education. Experiences of the silent majority, or common individuals, should be researched to provide a more complete perspective. Sources of such information include diaries, personal letters, personal papers, and slave narratives. However, this approach presents problems because personal literature is vast, difficult to locate and work with, and may contain bias. Nevertheless, historical research on education should consult these sources in order to identify patterns to be explored through statistical analysis and to help interpret relationships that appear in the statistical data of current research.

A Sisyphean task : historical perspectives on the relationship between writing and reading instruction : technical report no. 7 by Geraldine Jonçich Clifford( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Based on the thesis that cycles of concern for an integrated, holistic approach to English language instruction have periodically emerged in reaction to historical forces that are essentially fragmenting in their effects, this thematic report explores events in 20th-century American educational theory, research, and practice that deal with English language education. Two fundamental and enduring facts about English education in the schools which the report examines are the subordination of writing to reading and the other language skills and the separation of language skills from one another--particularly the isolation of reading from writing. Using perspectives drawn from American educational and social history, the report identifies five forces--the democratization of schooling, the professionalization of educators, technological change, the pragmatic character of American culture, and liberationist ideologies--and probes their analytically separable but interacting influences on English language education. Following a summary of the evidence of the assertions that writing has been dominated by reading in schools and that writing and reading have been separated for most of their histories, the report provides illustrations of the prevailing opinion that integration in language education is the proper approach, giving rise to cycles of reform aimed at such integration. It then gives an overview of the 19th century emergence of English as an identifiable subject of the school curriculum, and addresses the ways in which the forces cited promoted both separation and integration of the teaching of writing and reading. (One hundred ninety-six footnotes are attached.) (NKA)
