Concepts in the social studies by Barry K Beyer( Book )

11 editions published between 1171 and 1972 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These selections were chosen to give practical, understandable answers to several questions concerning concept teaching. What are concepts? Why teach them? How can concepts be taught? What are the implications of teaching? Here concept teaching implies: 1) developing the learners ability to conceptualize; 2) evolving more complex conceptualization; 3) teacher articulation of concepts, and being aware of previously learned concepts; 4) developing inquiry-teaching strategies; 5) evaluating teaching through the learners concept application; and, 6) using many types of media and personal experiences. With changes in the framework of the traditional social studies classroom and curriculum using sequential topically organized courses or a spiral curriculum organization, a concept-oriented curriculum can be facilitated. It is necessary, however, to limit the number of concepts to be learned, and to limit the amount of content for the purpose of depth studies. In this way concept learning can be facilitated at any grade level. Parts of the Syracuse University Social Studies Curriculum and the Illinois Curriculum are reproduced for illustration. (Vlw)

Writing in elementary school social studies by Barry K., Ed Beyer( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed to provide elementary school teachers with information, suggestions, and models for using writing in the social studies, from early primary to middle grades. There are four major chapters to the book. Chapter I is titled "Research on the Teaching of Writing." The articles in this first section move from a survey of research in writing to a survey of classroom practice in the use of writing in elementary school social studies and finally to a specific classroom study that integrates the two areas and presents specific implications for the study and teaching of writing. Chapter ii is titled "Developing Readiness in Writing." The first two articles stress two important aspects of a classroom environment that nurtures and supports student writing. The remaining five articles describe techniques such as interviewing, exploring the past, and brainstorming that teachers can use to initiate writing. The title of Chapter iii which contains seven articles is "Using Writing to Learn Social Studies Content." The articles describe ways in which writing can be used to help students learn social studies information or develop social studies generalizations. Another describes how writing can be used to conduct simulated field trips in the social studies classroom. The title of Chapter iv is "Combining Writing with Social Studies." Discussed are three essential supports for a successful program: a detailed curriculum guide, inservice teacher training, and cooperative teacher/administrator assessment procedures. The book also cites related resources in the eric system. (Author/RM)
How to conduct a formative evaluation by Barry K Beyer( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Formative evaluation consists of assessing educational programs or other kinds of educational products while they are being developed to help shape them into their final forms. This publication is intended for those whose job it is to develop new programs and products or to evaluate them during development. Topics discussed include: (1) the nature and importance of formative evaluation; (2) when to conduct them and what to look for; (3) sources of formative feedback; (4) data-gathering instruments and procedures; (5) formative evaluation in practice; and (6) guidelines for planning a formative evaluation. Careful planning is stressed, as is the use of multiple evaluation methods, validated before use. Each stage of an examination should focus on the kinds of information that will be of immediate use in improving the quality of the product. Results of each evaluation should be used to modify and shape the product as it moves through development. (Contains 9 figures and 20 references.) (Sld)
