Education and social change: a study of the role of the school in a technically developing society in central Asia by William K Medlin( Book )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A definition of the range of influence of the uzbek teacher as an agent of sociocultural change in soviet uzbekistan and a determination of the role of the teacher in transmitting new values and reinterpreting traditional cultures were the major purposes of the study. An interdisciplinary approach was used wherein historical-cultural, psychological, and sociological research methods were used. Policies and methods which soviet authorities pursued over a 40-year period in uzbekistan have met with qualified success. The major conclusion of the study was that the school was performing specific and vital roles of change. The formulation of the underlying principles of this position into a theory that defines a model for sociocultural change is a genuine possibility, but will depend upon further work in this field.

Educability of students in the visualization of objects in space by Finley Carpenter( Book )

5 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An attempt was made to determine the effect of systematic instruction in space relations on results of tests designed to measure space relations as an aptitude. Over 800 students, in 4 schools, were selected from the eighth- and ninth-grade levels to participate in the study. Instructional treatments varied from multiple inputs to zero insofar as the teaching of space relations was concerned. Specifically, eight treatments identified by the kind and number of instructional inputs--control (no instruction), film, filmstrip, and programed instruction, plus the combinations of film and programed instruction, filmstrip and programed instruction, and film, filmstrip, programed instruction. Two hypotheses were evaluated--(1) instructional inputs that intervene between pre- and post-tests of space relations would have no significant effect on reliability coefficients when compared with the control group data and (2) the amount and kind of instructional inputs would have no effect on changing mean scores on criterion measures. Results indicated that no clear-cut assessment of either hypothesis could be made. The most convincing outcome was that students with low I.Q.'s who had often transferred from one school to another gained most from programed instruction. There is a discussion on ways in which future attempts to study the central problem might be directed. (Jc)

Effects of liked and disliked teachers on student behavior by Finley Carpenter( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research was conducted to contrast the effects of two types of teachers, liked and disliked, on the learning behavior of their students. Teachers presented messages by film, by tape, and in person in experimental classrooms to students fitted with finger electrodes. Changes in electrical resistance were recorded of galvanic skin responses. Achievement tests were also administered. Measurements included (1) physiological arousal, (2) ratings of the teacher, (3) ratings of the subject matter, (4) scores on achievement tests, and (5) scores on tests of inference. Responses, ratings, and scores of both college and high school students were studied. Among the several findings were (1) students received significantly higher scores on tests both of facts and of inference under the"disliked" teachers when subject matter was presented in person and on film, and (2) students achieved higher scores under "liked" teachers only when subject matter was presented by tape recording. For any given presentation, no relationship was found between how students rated the teacher and amount learned. Subject matter ratings appeared to have much more bearing on achievement than did the factor of teacher likeability. (Rs)
