"In their opening chapter, Nelson and Calfee show that the practice of separating instruction in reading from that in writing has been a dominant feature in schools in the United States since colonial times. This volume questions that separation, and suggests that instruction in the language arts can be enhanced by integrating reading, writing, and language."--Jacket

"Should arts education have a more significant place in our schools? An emphatic 'Yes' comes from the editors and other contributors to this provocative volume." "They build their case by drawing upon recent developments in cognitive theory and, in particular, upon contemporary thought regarding aesthetic knowing. They contend that aesthetic knowing constitutes a 'special mode of cognition' and they see aesthetic learning as vital to intellectual growth and development. They argue that the arts should 'constitute a foundational school subject.'" "An opening chapter reviews past practices in education in the arts, thus providing a needed historical context within which current thinking about aesthetic learning can be viewed. The following chapters elaborate on the idea and value of aesthetic knowing from various perspectives to buttress the case for its importance in education." "Developmental issues are explored to deepen understanding of the nature of aesthetic growth. Studies reveal that children's art products have not changed over the years. But how has a cognitive perspective changed the way in which child art is interpreted? Can phases in general aesthetic development be identified? Or are such phases specific to each art form?" "What pedagogical issues arise in education in the arts? How are conceptual learnings important to the development of aesthetic understanding? Does the study of fine arts enrich the quality of life and shape human personality in positive ways?" "Given the long history of arts education as a peripheral matter in schools, is it now possible to envision a greater recognition of what study of the arts can accomplish by a proper focus on aesthetic knowing?" "These are some of the questions addressed in a volume that provides stimulating reading not only for arts educators but for all who are genuinely concerned about education."--Jacket

"This book provides an in-depth look at issues surrounding the field of bilingual education. The focus is on meeting the needs of language minority students of Hispanic backgrounds, but the discussion throughout has relevance for those working in bilingual education in other contexts." "The book is also relevant for all who want to see all children and youth served effectively and equitably in our schools. Although the concern here is with diversity arising because of differences in language and cultural backgrounds, the authors deal with issues that are central when confronting problems linked to other kinds of diversity that increasingly characterize school populations." "The history of bilingual education in the United States is a manifestation of a persistent conflict between assimilationists and cultural pluralists. This conflict is at the root of the "politics" of bilingual education, as is clearly seen here in discussions of developments in federal and state policy." "Descriptions of practices in elementary and secondary schools with large numbers of language minority students indicate considerable variety in approaches to the problem and even in how the term "bilingual education" is construed. It is clear, however, that contributors to this volume see dual language instruction as "the best possibility for achieving the social goals of education as well as for contributing to the linguistic resources of the country." Taken together, their chapters offer a persuasive rationale for that view." "It is not easy to devise quality programs using dual language instruction. The lack of adequately prepared teachers is a major obstacle. There are important methodological issues to be considered. Problems in the evaluation of programs, including the assessment of students' progress, offer special difficulties. Meaningful involvement of parents is seen as a critical component of effective dual language programs, as is the effective use of the primary language of students "as a resource."" "Throughout the volume the authors cite and comment upon much of the significant research that has brought a new understanding of the problems and possibilities of bilingual education."--Jacket

The adolescent years : social influences and educational challenges ( Book )
5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 891 libraries worldwide
"The contributors to this book see adolescence in broad terms - as a "dynamic social construction." As society changes, it becomes necessary to rethink what it means to be an adolescent in a rapidly changing world and to look with great care for explanations of teenage behavior, which is often perplexing to adults and teenagers themselves." "A recurrent theme in this volume is that, no matter how adolescence is defined, the establishment of identity and the search for autonomy remain central developmental tasks of the adolescent years. Changes in the various social contexts in which teenagers live - family, school, community institutions, peer groups, workplace - can significantly affect the progress they make with these and other social and cognitive developmental tasks. And success with those tasks is critical to ensure a smooth transition into adulthood."--Jacket
The construction of children's character ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 888 libraries worldwide
This volume provides an analysis of approaches to moral education in the 1960s and 1970s and then moves to a description and analysis of more contemporary efforts that characterize the current 'movement' for character education. It becomes clear, however, that 'the current movement' is a misnomer, for there are marked differences today among those who are concerned with the moral and character development of children. And there are others who are critical of the idea that schools should be involved in character education at all
