Human nature and the social order by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

8 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents certain facts and principles of psychology which students of sociology, economics, government, law, and other sciences of human affairs need to know. Psychology cannot as yet claim to be an adequate science of human thought, feeling, and action, upon which all the social sciences rest and with which they must agree. Indeed it probably has much more to learn from them, especially from anthropology and history, than they from it. But human biology and psychology make a substantial contribution. They settle certain questions outright and turn the balance for others"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved)
Those good Gertrudes : a social history of women teachers in America by Geraldine Jonich Clifford( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Those Good Gertrudes explores the professional, civic, and personal roles of women teachers. Its voice, themes, and findings build from the mostly unpublished writings of many women and their families, colleagues, and pupils. Geraldine J. Clifford studied personal history manuscripts in archives and consulted printed autobiographies, diaries, correspondence, oral histories, interviews--even film and fiction--to probe the multifaceted imagery that has surrounded teaching. This work stands alone: it is broad ranging, inclusive, and comparative. It surveys a long past where schoolteaching was essentially men's work, with women relegated to restricted niches such as teaching rudiments of the vernacular language to young children and socializing girls for traditional gender roles. Clifford documents and explains the emergence of women as the prototypical schoolteachers in the United States, a process apparent in the late colonial period and continuing through the nineteenth century, when they became the majority of American public and private schoolteachers. She finds that this trend continues in the twenty-first century, despite the diversion of women to competing professions, a precipitous reduction in the number of Roman Catholic nuns, and repeated efforts and incentives to recruit and retain male teachers."--Publisher information

Distortion in the Historiography of American Education: The Problemof Silence by Geraldine Jonich Clifford( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of American education is incomplete. This problem is the result of (1) historical scholars being influenced more by concerns of their own time than by issues of the past, (2) the belief that what is written and said about education is an acceptable representation of what education is, (3) the assumption that educational leaders are spokesmen for the entire educational enterprise, and (4) the presumption that the history of education is solely the history of how education has been imparted. These misconceptions have led educational historiographers to largely ignore accounts of students, parents, and teachers throughout the history of American education. Experiences of the silent majority, or common individuals, should be researched to provide a more complete perspective. Sources of such information include diaries, personal letters, personal papers, and slave narratives. However, this approach presents problems because personal literature is vast, difficult to locate and work with, and may contain bias. Nevertheless, historical research on education should consult these sources in order to identify patterns to be explored through statistical analysis and to help interpret relationships that appear in the statistical data of current research.
