Education and community : a radical critique of innovative schooling by Donald W Oliver( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major facets by which one views man in the community and the possible relationships between education and community are examined. The author senses a crisis of will in the education and helping professions due to a loss of faith in the liberal vision of a modern democratic society. Believing education must create balance between primitive and modern aspects of human community, systems of thought, and personality, he is concerned with both methodology and substance. An introduction, which discusses three modes of educational and social reform, presents the thesis that educators should exPend more energy for rebuilding communal settings rather than constantly attempting to reform or humanize corporate school settings. Arranged in four parts, the book (1) examines the ethical bases for analysis of educational and community; (2) studies various dimensions of quality of life; (3) explores applications of the concept of quality of life in terms of social forms, human diversity, and social change; and (4) offers comments on quality of life and education in communicatarian settings such as the kibbutz and learning communities. The author hopes that the book will provide a new conceptual basis for a social studies and humanities curriculum. (Av)
Clarifying public controversy; an approach to teaching social studies by Fred M Newmann( Book )

7 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a rational discussion process approach to the teaching of specific social controversies in the social studies in secondary schools. The authors provide an in-depth analysis of this approach which includes both theory and application. The introductory chapters place the discussion process framework within terms of American values and public issues, however, no presumption is made to solve complex philosophical questions. The emphasis is on the existence of controversy as an important contribution to society with citizenship education attempting to influence people, but not indoctrinate them. The book deals extensively with the problem of making value decisions and helps the high school teacher to develop his students strategies for justifying and challenging their views. Actual case material for use in the classroom is included along with example evaluative instruments for the purpose of illustrating how the discussion process operates in real arguments and teaching situations.

Science and public policy : uses and control of knowledge by Laurel R., Ed Singleton( Book )

2 editions published between 1969 and 1993 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet is part of a series designed to help students take and defend a position on public issues. This booklet addresses the issues faced by society and individuals due to advances in scientific knowledge. It presents questions, stories, and scenarios for student discussion. Students are instructed to identify three kinds of questions in a discussion: (1) ethical or value questions; (2) questions of definition; and (3) questions involving facts and explanation. The document consists of six sections. The first is an overview that introduces the series, explains to students what the issues to be examined are, and suggests how the student should approach these issues. The second section deals with society and the limits that it places on science. As illustrations of the power of society to repress scientific knowledge, this section discusses the trial of Galileo and the modern example of the cancellation of funding for a conference on possible links between genetics and violence. The third section describes the dilemma faced by scientists when society disapproves of or condemns as evil their methods or studies. The next section is on specialized knowledge and decision making. It presents scenarios of debates over the fluoridation of water and how much information physicians may withhold from patients or their families. The fifth section relates these issues to current topics and choices about creating and using knowledge. The final section presents questions for review and discusses the issue of choices and of who funds what research. The accompanying teacher's guide focuses on the following organizing questions: (1) Under what conditions, if any, would it be in the public interest to prohibit or limit certain lines of investigation, to keep investigations secret, or to prevent a person from disseminating a scientific belief? (2) Under what conditions, if any, might a scientist's obligations to her profession conflict with obligations to her country or to humanity? How should these dilemmas be resolved? And (3) What is the citizen's obligation to understand science? What kinds of public policy questions should citizens delegate to scientists and experts? The guide breaks down teaching the unit into preparation, introduction of the unit, and a basic discussion of each section of the unit. A 6-item bibliography and handouts are included. (Dk)
