The educated person : toward a new paradigm for liberal education by D. G Mulcahy( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Liberal education has long been a fascination for scholars in a variety of disciplines and is closely associated with the idea of the educated person. Seen at one time as a matter for colleges and universities, over the years it has become central to the debate surrounding general education in high school and even the earlier grades. Yet so many and varied are the uses of the term "liberal education" that the question arises of whether and how the idea is any longer a useful or helpful construct. In what way might it speak helpfully to educational challenges we face today? In what ways might it be a guide as we search for a better way forward? These are the central questions that are addressed in this book. In doing so, the positions of three theorists - John Henry Newman, Mortimer J. Adler, and Jane Roland Martin - who have written about liberal education in a compelling way and from different perspectives are selected for close analysis. The analysis is built upon to fashion a new ideal of the educated person and a new theory of liberal education."--Jacket

Pedagogy, praxis and purpose in education by Cara M Mulcahy( )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent years have shown the growth of federal legislation and programs having a profound impact on educational policy and practice, and a decline in reliance on broadly based educational justifications. Paralleling this development has been the emergence of well-endowed and influential private foundations, and an increase in corporate influence in shaping policy. In this volume the authors consider the discourse, rhetoric, and underlying values that sustain these developments alongside those that underlie more longstanding and competing educational theories and practices. This volume highlights the importance of recognizing opposing conceptualizations of education-some more educationally productive than others- and their core values, approaches to student learning, strengths and weaknesses, and justification. The authors analyze and critique what Jane Roland Martin has referred to as 'the deep structure of educational thought', and seek improved educational policy and practice with particular reference to curriculum and pedagogy. It features a comparative analysis of competing discourses including autocratic control, limited personal development, and praxis

Gen ed by D. G Mulcahy( )

4 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gen Ed locates serious discussion of general education in the context of some of the day-to-day realities encountered in putting it into practice and promoting efforts at reform at Metropolitan Atlantic University (aka the Metro). This dual focus is found in the often-pugnacious policy debate among the faculty and a more light-hearted discussion of related questions carried on by Professor Kelly as he models Socratic teaching in his upper-level class for prospective teachers. Reforming general education at the Metro is not free of the vanities and vulgarities of ambitious men and women and self-serving politicians, of course, nor those who poke fun at them. Arnie Smatter, the irrepressible and nosey chat show host of Radio YOY ensures that this does not go unnoticed. The overall humorous tone of Gen Ed does not detract from Mulcahy's thoughtful treatment of substantive issues that will be of interest to serious scholars, students, and a general readership. It is the behaviour of those involved, the broader media and political contexts in which events take place, which mainly becomes the object of humorous treatment"--

Goals 2000 and the Role of the National Education Standards and Improvement Council by D. G Mulcahy( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Education Standards and Improvement Council (nesic) was established in the Goals 2000: Educate America Act. One of NESIC's duties is to identify areas in which specific educational standards ought to be developed. Several complex issues arise in carrying out this duty, such as: the need for standards in such non-content areas as student performance, definition and measurement of standards, accommodation of variability and individualization, one or multiple performance standards, the voluntary nature of the standards, and standards as a de facto national curriculum. Another basic duty of nesic is to certify voluntary national content standards and voluntary student performance standards. A number of questions arise here as well, such as what subjects should be included, the place of education of feelings and emotions, development of attitudes as tolerance or taking risks, inclusion of family life and health education, and the role of community service. In the area of opportunity-to-learn standards, there are uncertainties regarding what is "fair," what is "restricting" to State and local control of curriculum, and what will protect teachers' professional autonomy. Also needed is a clear articulation by nesic of how assessment and content are to be aligned, along with strong measures to maintain that alignment. (Contains 11 endnotes.) (Jdd)

Addressing the Challenge of Family Involvement in the Schooling of English Language Learners in Elementary and Secondary School Settings by Dorothy A Baker( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this research is to identify, discuss, and codify, for practitioners and families, factors in the literature on English language earners that are significant in successfully addressing the challenge of achieving greater family involvement in the schooling of English language learners in elementary and secondary school settings. Specifically, this thesis identifies the elements that need to be in place in order to improve family involvement in the schooling of English language learners. The most recent census data, as reported by Ryan (2013), shows a 158.2% increase, since 1980, in the number of people speaking a language other than English at home in the United States. As this population of English language learners continues to grow and these students enter public schools, the sometimes-challenging experience of effective communication between school and home presents itself to schools, districts, families, and community members
A Case Study on the Plainville, Connecticut Public School Educational System from 1869-1959 by Terri A Lachapelle( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This case study examines the political, economic, social, and historic variables which shaped the public school system of the town of Plainville, Connecticut. The time period encompasses by the case study is from 1869, the year in which the town of Plainville was incorporated until 1959, the close of the decade in which the town's current educational system had its foundation. Qualitative research methods were used in this case study which involved reading, critically evaluating and analyzing written and photographic source material. Interviews were conducted at the Plainville Historical Society. Guided questions provided a framework for the participants. The primary and secondary sources used in this case study came from three major repositories. (1) The Castle Archives are housed at the Plainville Public Library. Henry A. Castle was the Town of Plainville's first Town Historian and an earlier member of the Board of Education. (2) Certified Board of Education meeting minutes were obtained from the Plainville Town Clerk's office. (3) The Plainville Historical Society files contain information pulled from various sources such as newspapers, transcribed personal accounts, photographic images, personal journals, yearbooks, scrapbooks, artifacts, advertising pieces, and other ephemera. Photographic and written source materials from the Plainville Historical Society and interviews of individuals compose the majority of sources analyzed for this case study. The industrial revolution had ushered in a period of urbanization, causing a change in the politics, economies, and the ideology of society in Plainville. These changes were reflected in how the community sought to educate their children. The objective of the education was to ingrain in students morality, citizenship and provide them with the proper skills to enter the work force. The public schools of Plainville endeavored to provide their students with the best possible education while facing the various challenges of community needs, lack of space, and changing educational philosophies
