1990 CRC report to field sites by Milbrey Wallin McLaughlin( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a descriptive summary of preliminary findings from the second year of research in 16 secondary schools in California and Michigan conducted by the Center for Research on the Context of Secondary Teaching (crc). Further analyses of the data will proceed over the year and will be informed by comments of teachers, administrators, and other researchers on issues raised by general findings reported here. These findings are based on preliminary analyses of the 1990 crc survey data and analyses of interviews conducted with teachers in each crc high school over the two school years, 1988-89 and 1989-90. The quantitative data reported represent responses of approximately 700 secondary school teachers to questionnaire surveys conducted in spring 1989 and 1990. Qualitative data analyses are based on interviews with approximately 320 teachers. The sections of this research summary reflect CRC's core lines of analysis, which are: (1) professional community organizational patterns; (2) teachers' perspectives on today's students; (3) students perspectives on teachers and school; and (4) issues for policy. Appendixes provide information on survey measures discussed in the report and summarize survey data for each field site. (Ll)
Students' multiple worlds : negotiating the boundaries of family, peer, and school cultures by Patricia Phelan( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 2-year longitudinal study is being conducted better to understand the lives of secondary school students as they move from one social setting to another and to draw implications for learning as teachers are provided with a more holistic picture. The study describes students' interrelationships with family, school, and peers; perceptions of boundaries between worlds; and adaptation strategies employed in order to move from one context to another. Participants include 54 diverse students attending 4 large, urban, desegregated high schools. Data were gathered from student interviews, classroom observation, school records, demographic and descriptive material, and teacher interviews. A model has emerged identifying four types of students. The first type comes from a two-parent household valuing family cohesiveness and functioning in a world that is congruent and offers smooth transitions. The second belongs to a world that is different with respect to culture, ethnicity, socio-economic status, or religion, but within which the youngster manages successfully to traverse boundaries. The third type represents students whose worlds are different and who cross boundaries only under certain conditions. The fourth type includes those who describe boundary crossing as impenetrable and insurmountable. Possibly the most significant implication of the multiple worlds model is that it provides teachers and others a way of thinking about students in a more holistic way. (Ll)
Navigating the psycho/social pressures of adolescence : the voices and experiences of high school youth by Patricia Phelan( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes conditions and circumstances in students' family, peer, and school worlds which students perceive as creating pressures and stress powerful enough to divert their attention and interest from school. Rather than assuming that minority status, linguistic differences, part-time employment, peers and/or poverty necessarily create problems for young adults, students were asked about why they thought they were not connecting in educational settings. The focus, then, is on all students and not just those identified as at-risk. Results indicate significant variation in the types and frequencies of problems for different types of youth. Students whose worlds are congruent and who transition smoothly report tremendous stress from teachers and parents to achieve academically. Other students who report difficulties in making transitions between different worlds worry about understanding course materials as they struggle to make passing grades. Still other students, for whom transitions are most difficult, are burdened with uncertain futures. All students stressed the importance of being connected to at least one caring and empathetic adult in their school environment. When that happened, students were more likely to seek help. (Rjm)
