Learning style profile handbook : developing cognitive skills by John M Jenkins( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) published a new learning style instrument in 1986--the NASSP Learning Style Profile (LSP). The LSP yields independent scores on 24 discrete elements of learning style. Its purpose is to provide educators with a well-validated and easy to use instrument for diagnosing cognitive styles, perceptual response tendencies, and study and instructional preferences of middle level and senior high school students. The LSP offers school practitioners a way to personalize the instructional process, identify the dominant stylistic characteristics of students, and plan instruction accordingly. This practical guide presents exercises to enhance the cognitive skills diagnosed by the LSP. The exercises, which draw on sample items from the LSP, are designed to augment each of the following areas: (1) analytic skill; (2) spatial skill; (3) discrimination skill; (4) categorization skill; (5) sequential processing skill; (5) simultaneous processing skill; (6) memory skill; and (7) verbal-spatial preference. Grade-level designations are listed for each activity. Appendix A provides a key to complicated performance activities, and Appendix B presents a LSP interpretation form. (SLD)

Improving Discipline in the Secondary School. a Catalogue of Alternatives to Repression. an Occasional Paper by Eugene R Howard( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The usual approach to improving discipline in the schools is the repressive approach -- more rules, stricter enforcement, more efficient pupil surveillance, suspensions of privileges, or additional rules imposed by the board of education. School administrators, faced with increased public concern and lacking well-defined alternatives to such repressive measures, tend to accede to public pressure, thereby making matters worse. This paper is designed to serve the educator who wants to take positive rather than negative steps towards improving school discipline. The projects suggested here, taken together, should add up to a comprehensive effort to modify the learning environment. Three major pieces of this environment are considered here -- the belief and value system of the school, the school's communications system, and the manner in which decisions are made within the institution. Significant changes in these important components of the institution should do much to remedy the causes of discipline problems. (Author)

Effective Leadership for Instructional Improvement by John M Jenkins( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with the contention that the principal is the pivotal person in bringing about school improvement, this paper reviews several of the trends discussed in John Naisbitt's "Megatrends" and assesses their significance for public education in general and for the role of the principal in particular. These trends include (1) the shift from an either/or society to one where multiple options are the rule; (2) the change from a centralized to a decentralized society; (3) the move from the family to the individual as the basic unit of society; (4) the trend from representative to participatory democracy; (5) the shift from short-term to long-term thinking; and (6) the change from a national to a global economy. A review of these trends is followed by a discussion of the current public concern over the quality of education and an evaluation of some of the more popular proposals for school improvement, including merit pay, teacher testing, differentiated staffing, and partnerships with business. In conclusion, five general suggestions for school improvement are offered: (1) tougher academic standards, (2) instruction geared to individual learning styles, (3) expanded counseling programs, (4) professionalization of teaching, and (5) responsibility training for students.

Continuous Progress Education: An Ideal that Works by John M Jenkins( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuous progress education (cp) provides for the individualization of all significant aspects of learning, including materials, content, objectives, methods, pacing, and student-teacher relationships. It is based on the proposition that no general prescriptions are equally appropriate for all students. A brief description of Hood River Valley (Oregon) High School shows how one cp program is set up. Any school establishing a cp program must consider four principal components: (1) program scope and sequence, concerning curricular goals and course arrangement; (2) selection of instructional materials; (3) the management system, governing recordkeeping, materials quality, individual student plans and conferences, the learning environment, physical arrangements, and use of aides; and (4) the teacher-adviser system. Examples of five more cp programs, using different program structures and covering different subject areas, come from Andrews (Texas) High School, Howard County (Maryland) School System, Bishop Carroll High School in Calgary (Alberta, Canada), P.K. Yonge Laboratory School in Gainesville (Florida), and Chalmette (Louisiana) High School. Cp programs offer 10 educational benefits, including student accountability, flexible scheduling, increased school holding power, curriculum enrichment, and avoidance of ability grouping's negative effects.
