Creativity and chaos : reflections on a decade of progressive change in public schools, 1967-1977 by Charles Suhor( )

3 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Creativity and Chaos: Progressivism in New Orleans Public Schools and the Nation 1967-1977, Charles Suhor brings to life the bold challenges to the status quo in education during a decade of national turmoil. The regimentation and rote learning of traditional schooling could not have escaped the restless temper of the times--Vietnam war protests, racial strife, assassinations, hippie communes, the sexual revolution, an emerging drug culture, and daring innovations in pop/rock music. Suhor describes his immersion in post-World War II popular culture of New Orleans as a rich backdrop for his years as an impassioned educational reformer at local and national levels. A risk-taking teacher and district supervisor of English, he plunged headlong into controversies over black literature, censorship, ebonics, the "new grammar," faculty integration, testing, standardization, and computer technology. He demonstrates how the sweeping national trends often took quirky, distinctive turns in a city that delights in marching to a different drummer. Suhor's engaging account takes the reader into classrooms as well as the intrigues of central office politics and national leaders' disputes on how to best teach students in a time of change. In no sense a doctrinal liberal, he lambastes the errors and excesses of the progressive moment and traces its decline and the backlash demand for a return to basic skills. Suhor concludes with an update on innovations that have waned or persisted in today's schools"--

Speaking and writing, K-12 : classroom strategies and the new research by Christopher Thaiss( Book )

7 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To translate the recent research in writing and oral communication into useful suggestions for classroom practice, to focus on ways teachers can help their students grow as writers and speakers, and to stress activities that do not isolate the language arts into units and sever skills from content learning, the articles in this book were prepared by teachers, researchers, and writers. The nine articles are (1) Learning Better, Learning More: In the Home and Across the Curriculum," by Ann Jeffries-Thaiss and Christopher J. Thaiss; (2) "Talking and Writing: Building Communication Competence," by Donald L. Rubin and Kenneth J. Kantor; (3) "Thinking Visually about Writing: Three Models for Teaching Composition, k-12," by Charles Suhor; (4) "Oral Communication in the Elementary Classroom," by Barbara S. Wood; (5) "Writing Growth in Young Children: What We are Learning from Research," by Marcia Farr; (6) "Thinking Together: Interaction in Children's Reasoning," by Jana Staton; (7) "Using the New Technologies in Language Communication Education," by Nancy S. Olson; (8) "Integrating the Language Arts," by R.R. Allen and Robert W. Kellner; and (9) "Assessing Children's Speaking, Listening, and Writing Skills," by Linda Reed. (Crh)
Career education and English, K-12 : ideas for teaching by Jan E Kilby( Book )

9 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This practical guide has been created for elementary and secondary school English teachers who wish to incorporate career education in their classroom activities. The guide has two sections, one on teaching ideas and one on resources. The teaching ideas are divided into discussions of career awareness during kindergarten through grade six, career exploration during grades seven through nine, and career preparation during grades ten through twelve. The section on resources lists sources of career education materials (resource inventories, state departments of education, career education information centers, career education publications, interested professional associations, and federal sources of information), resources for the combination of English instruction and career education, general references in career education, and items that reinforce the social importance of career education.

Teaching values in the literature classroom : a debate in print by Charles Suhor( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book debates the values being taught in American public schools. The book considers whether moral, ethical, social, and religious values of any kind should be taught or inculcated in the public school setting--specifically, should the values embodied in the literature typically read in English literature classrooms be advocated by the teachers, or ought the literary and historical discussion of meaningful texts be used by teachers as an opportunity to help students work towards clarity about their own values? The debate presented in this book is another engagement in the ongoing struggle to shape the value structures of young Americans, and the opposing viewpoints which form the substance of the book are those of two educator brothers, Bernard and Charles Suhor. Chapters in the book are: "Religion at School: A Word from the Moderator" (Carl B. Smith); "Values in the Teaching of Literature--A Public School View" (Charles Suhor); "Values in the Teaching of Literature--A Catholic School View" (Bernard Suhor); "Response to Bernard Suhor" (Charles Suhor); "Response to Charles Suhor" (Bernard Suhor); "Further Comment" (Charles Suhor); and "Further Comment" (Bernard Suhor). The book concludes with a 158-item annotated bibliography of resources containing activities and ideas for clarification from the ERIC database. (NKA)
Semiotics and the English language arts by Charles Suhor( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The controversial field of semiotics has been criticized for its "unwillingness to respect boundaries" and its "conviction that everything is a sign." The central concerns of this wide-ranging field, however, can be defined, and its implications for teaching can be outlined. Semiotics is the study of signs (symbols, icons, and indexes) which can be organized into systems of objects and behaviors. There are three basic areas of semiotics--semantics, pragmatics, and syntactics. In oral language, reading, and literature, pragmatics has had a growing influence. A comprehensive view of curriculum is implicit in semiotics insofar as all existing school subjects--and even subjects not yet formulated--are by their nature ways of organizing signs. The very range of semiotics and its potential for organizing thinking about curriculum in new ways can add structure and substance to arguments for the things that teachers value: oral language, the written word, the arts, interdisciplinary study, and articulate exchange of ideas and feelings among students. Fifteen sources for further reading are provided. (RS)
Thinking skills in English-- and across the curriculum by Charles Suhor( Book )

5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended for administrators and policy makers as well as teachers, this digest explores issues surrounding methods of teaching thinking skills and who should teach them. Following an introduction that acknowledges the need for teaching such skills but a lack of consensus on how to meet this need, the digest discusses theories of isolating specific cognitive skills for instruction, including generalizable and local or content specific skills, while noting little agreement on what constitutes thinking, and lack of a compelling taxonomy of thinking skills for use in educational programs. It then explores local skills, skills taught in specific subject areas. Next, the digest explores those thinking skills essential to English and the language arts, and the role English teachers play in teaching thinking skills. Based on the close ties of oral and written language to thinking and the pervasiveness of language in the teaching of all subjects, the digest concludes by discussing the role of language and thinking across the curriculum.

Two problems in the teaching of English by Charles Suhor( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English instruction is successful when students learn to express significant ideas clearly in discussions, write with verve and grace, read with insight and enjoyment, and practice these skills beyond the realm of the classroom. This report discusses how to teach grammar and select literature in order to achieve those goals. Research and issues in grammar teaching are reviewed. Grammar learning is enhanced in active language environments that use techniques such as role-playing and sentence combining, while attending to grammar concerns primarily within the writing process. The following types of "literature" should be included in the curriculum: (1) a wide range of works for all ages: (2) popular literature; (3) great classical and contemporary literature; (4) nonprint media such as television, film, and drama; (5) students' personal experience; and (6) information about literature (authors' lives, particular works, literary movements, figures of speech, metric patterns, etc.). The latter, though emphasized in the past, should be approached more as a tool than as an end in itself and should be subordinate to higher order thinking skills and students' responses to characters and events in a work. Since nonprint media provide students' most frequent vicarious experience, the English teacher has an important stake in guiding their understanding of the imaginative worlds presented there. A list of references is included. (Ps)
