Becoming historians( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this unique collection, the memoirs of eleven historians provide a fascinating portrait of a formative generation of scholars. Born around the time of World War II, these influential historians came of age just before the upheavals of the 1960s and '70s and helped to transform both their discipline and the broader world of American higher education. The self-inventions they thoughtfully chronicle led, in many cases, to the invention of new fields--including women's and gender history, social history, and public history--that cleared paths in the academy and made the study of the past more capacious and broadly relevant. In these stories--skillfully compiled and introduced by James Banner and John Gillis--aspiring historians will find inspiration and guidance, experienced scholars will see reflections of their own dilemmas and struggles, and all readers will discover a rare account of how today's seasoned historians embarked on their intellectual journeys"--Provided by publisher

Being a historian : an introduction to the professional world of history by James M Banner( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the author's more than 50 years of experience as a professional historian in academic and other capacities, Being a Historian is addressed to both aspiring and mature historians. It offers an overview of the state of the discipline of history today and the problems that confront it and its practitioners in many professions. James M. Banner, Jr. argues that historians remain inadequately prepared for their rapidly changing professional world and that the discipline as a whole has yet to confront many of its deficiencies. He also argues that, no longer needing to conform automatically to the academic ideal, historians can now more safely and productively than ever before adapt to their own visions, temperaments, and goals as they take up their responsibilities as scholars, teachers, and public practitioners. Critical while also optimistic, this work suggests many topics for further scholarly and professional exploration, research, and debate"--

Revising educational statistics by James M Banner( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When gathering and presenting educational statistics, five principles should be considered. (1) The data must be accurate, valid, and complete. Limitations, weaknesses, margins of error, and levels of confidence should be clearly stated. (2) The data must include comparable information, sought in comparable ways, in comparable forms, from comparable sources. (3) Data that do not have immediate utility should be collected such that they may be useful at a later time. (4) Historical statistics should be collected in order to provide the context for interpreting long-term change, the significance of change, and solutions to problems. (5) Data collection procedures should be simple and methods of reporting should be easy to use. The comparability of data concerning educational quality must be improved. The United States Department of Education and the Council of Chief State School Officers should cooperate with state officials to standardize data collection and presentation. Further research is needed in the areas of teachers' qualifications, student dropouts, art and music instruction, and programs to publish research results. (Gdc)
