They discuss critical questions about the relationship between the American democracy and a free public school system

"The Language of Leadership is a guide that examines the relationship between language and effective leadership. Author Roger Soder shows leaders - no matter what their field - how to use ethical persuasion to cultivate public trust and build legitimacy for their cause.

The beat of a different drummer : essays on educational renewal in honor of John I. Goodlad by Kenneth A Sirotnik( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Beat of a Different Drummer: Essays on Educational Renewal in Honor of John I. Goodlad is a collection of essays by friends, colleagues, and scholars who have been profoundly influenced by Goodlad's seminal thinking and half century of research and scholarship on educational change and school improvement. With diversity in styles and topics, these writers contribute to this festschrift by focusing on one or more key ideas in Goodlad's work, while extending and complementing them in the context of their own research and scholarship. Although the primary purpose of this volume is to celebrate the work of one of America's preeminent educators, readers will find a series of provocative essays that will help to keep alive the essential conversation about the problems of, and hopes for, educational renewal in our democratic society."--Jacket
Romances with schools : a life of education by John I Goodlad( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Romances with Schools, John Goodlad steps out from behind the public persona of distinguished scholar and advocate for public schooling to offer a moving personal account of a life devoted to educating the young. He deftly interweaves fascinating personal details with reflections on many of the larger issues in education that he has explored throughout his career." "John's early encounters with formal schooling begin just before the Great Depression in Canada with the humble North Star School. From there we are taken through sixty-plus years in education, starting with John's first teaching job as the sole instructor of a one-room schoolhouse in a farming community in British Columbia, through his years as an education activist and founder of the famed Englewood Project, to his decision in the 1980s to step down as dean of the UCLA Graduate School of Education to return to his first love, teaching. Along the way, he treats us to vivid characterizations of the men, women, and above all, the children who shaped him as a person and inspired his thinking on education. And he explores important themes at the center of his philosophy, such as the pernicious influence of tracking and standardized testing and the need for perpetual reevaluation and renewal in pedagogy." "Offering a compelling view of public education in North America as seen through the prism of one extraordinary person's life, Romances with Schools is both a poignant memoir and what may be John Goodlad's most persuasive argument yet for the need to change public education to fit the demands of a free society

Minimum Competency A Case Study of Acceptance, Hesitation and Rejection by Roger Soder( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to present a case study of the context and process by which the Board adopted a policy, came to question that policy, and ultimately rescinded that policy, while maintaining legitimacy within its environment. In 1977, the Board of Directors of a large urban school district adopted a policy establishing successful passage of a "life skills" minimum competency test as a high school graduation requirement. In 1979, community groups were successful in persuading the Board to delay implementation of the requirement for one year. In 1981, the same community groups were successful in persuading the Board to delay implementation indefinitely. In early 1983, when the testing issue was again considered by the Board, the Board voted to eliminate passage of the test as a graduation requirement. While the minimum competency issue was going through these steps of acceptance, hesitation, and rejection, a desegregation plan was implemented successfully. To further illuminate these processes, five aspects of Board/staff/community behaviors relating to the desegration plan are compared to behaviors relating to the minimum competency issue. These aspects include Board commitment, superintendent commitment, rhetorical approach, information approach, and consensus-building. (BW)
Professionalizing the Profession. Notes on the Future of Teaching. Occasional Paper No. 4 by Roger Soder( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper discusses the efforts to professionalize teaching in light of four questions: (1) Can an occupational group, through its own efforts, obtain increased professional status? (2) What might those efforts look like? (3) What conditions must be obtained in order that those efforts might best succeed? And (4) Do such strategies serve good purposes, or might they? The secondary purpose is to develop a framework to guide needed research designed to support or reject the assumptions and hypotheses set forth in this paper. Accordingly, after brief introductory notes on the future of teaching, the first section identifies three distinct approaches in the literature on teacher status and professionalization: the "attributes" or "traits" approach, the "functionalist" approach, and the "process" approach. The main body of the paper elaborates an extended comparison with the changing status of medicine during the last two centuries, identifying several factors leading to the transformation of the medical profession and mapping these onto the teaching profession: new technology, training linked with the new technology, public support for restricted practice, public valuing of schooling, fragmented demand for services, and bifurcation of authority. The ensuing discussion concludes that teaching cannot achieve the prestige of medicine, since it fails to meet any of these six criteria. Therefore, instead of using the medical analogy, it is argued that teachers should base their claim to professionalism on the moral obligations of compulsory schooling. A 102-item bibliography is included. (Te)
University District Collaboration on Effective Schools: A Resource Enhancement Model by Roger Soder( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two large, complex organizations (an urban school district and a neighboring college of education of a major State-funded university) have developed and applied a collaborative model of interaction and resource enhancement in response to resource contradiction and environmental turbulence. This paper (1) presents a conceptual framework of organizations interacting with their environments in a tight/loose coupling mode; (2) describes the background, development, processes, and outcomes of the collaborative relationship; and (3) presents an analysis of the collaborative relationship in terms of the conceptual framework. Five targets of change are analyzed: presumptions of logic, socialization processes, differential participation, constant variables, and corruptions of feedback. The case history suggests that both organizations had to move to protect their respective technical cores and, to do so, elected to adopt bridging strategies to enhance resources and thus increase organizational legitimacy.
