The construction zone : working for cognitive change in school by Denis Newman( Book )

18 editions published between 1989 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In its description of several years of painstaking classroom observations and carefully crafted experimental interventions, the 'construction zone' makes clear the cleavage lines between the everyday requirements of classroom teaching and the practice of experimental psychologists. The best intentions of researchers to improve education are often undermined by such differences. The 'construction zone' is the shared psychological space within which teachers construct environments for their students' intellectual development and students construct deeper understandings of the cultural heritage embodied in the curriculum. The core of the book is a set of analyses of children's developmental changes during classroom lessons and individual tutorials designed to teach basic concepts in such diverse areas as natural science, social studies, and arithmetic. Fusing techniques currently in wide use in microsociology, experimental psychology, and ethnographic studies of the classroom, the authors offer a compelling vision of intellectual development as a process of joint constructive interaction mediated by cultural artifacts. Their approach makes it possible to retain the strength of a developmental perspective which treats intellectual change as a constructive process in the spirit of Piaget, while making it clear that developmental change is simultaneously a social process of cultural transformation as emphasized by Vygotsky and his students

Una aproximación socio-histórica a la re-mediación by Michael Cole( )

1 edition published in 1989 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

En este artículo, los autores proponen recuperar esos sistemas mediadores tanto para la enseñanza de la lectoescritura como para la recuperación de los malos lectores
Ambientes De Lenguaje Y Alfabetizacion En Programas Preescolares (Language and Literacy Environments in Preschools). Eric Digest by Catherine E Snow( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Because of the variation in support for literacy development in different homes, many children need high-quality preschool and school environments and excellent primary instruction to be sure of reading success. This Spanish-language Digest discusses the research on preschool literacy environments and their contributions to reading skills development. The overall quality of a child care program has been found to be an important determinant of positive effects on language and preliteracy skills. Studies that have focused on the language environments in preschool classrooms suggest that the quality of adult-child discourse is important, as is the amount of such interaction. Modest enhancements of the quality of classroom experiences show positive effects on children's language development and preliteracy skills. Given the pervasive evidence of differences in language and emergent literacy skills associated with class, culture, and linguistic background, it is heartening that preschool has been shown to benefit children's performance in school.

Preparing our teachers : opportunities for better reading instruction by Dorothy Strickland( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Today's teachers face huge challenges, especially for teaching reading in the primary grades. A recent study reveals that fewer than half of American teachers report feeling "very well prepared" to meet such challenges. This book seeks to improve that statistic by extracting practical information from the report issued by the National Research Council in 1998, "Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children." The book outlines what classroom teachers need to know and what they need to be able to do to give children in preschool through Grade 4 the essential opportunities to become good readers. It discusses what teacher education programs need to do to make their students good teachers of good readers and looks at what schools and school districts need to do to keep their teachers up to date for teaching reading. Chapters in the book are: Introduction--Teachers of Young Children: The Agents and Champions of Literacy; (1) From Shopping Lists to Poetry: Forms and Functions of Written Language; (2) Making Meaning: Language Development and Comprehension; (3) Sounds, Letters, and Words: How Print Works; (4) Moving to Success: Motivating Children to Read; and (5) Anticipating Challenges: Assessment, Prevention, and Intervention. Each chapter contains resource lists and sample activities for teacher learning. The Introduction contains notes and a resource list. (Nka)
