Description : Taking a close look at the forces that affect English education in schools—at the ways literature, cognitive science, the privileging of the STEM disciplines, and current educational policies are connected—this timely book counters with a strong argument for the importance of continuing to teach literature in middle and secondary classrooms. The case is made through critical examination of the ongoing "culture wars" between the humanities and the sciences, recent research in cognitive literary studies demonstrating the power of narrative reading, and an analysis of educational trends that have marginalized literature teaching in the U.S., including standards-based and scripted curricula. The book is distinctive in presenting both a synthesis of arguments for literary study in the middle and high school and sample lesson plans from practicing teachers exemplifying how literature can positively influence adolescents’ intellectual, emotional, and social selves.

Description : Assessment is now regarded as a 'high stakes' issue: schools, teachers, and individual pupils are often judged by the results of national tests and public examinations. This book addresses both formal and informal ways of assessing children's work and progress. Pupils' learning is often neglected in the debate, so this book puts what children actually learn right at its centre and involves them sensibly and appropriately in the improvement of teaching and learning. The book is divided into six units where Ted Wragg address topics such as: * principles and purposes of assessment * written, oral and practical evaluation * self-assessment the 'whole school' approach * staff development and appraisal. The inclusion of tried and tested practical activities, discussion topics, photographs, cartoons and case examples makes this a very user-friendly book for both trainee and experienced teachers in secondary schools. This is one of a set of eight innovative yet practical resource books for teachers, focussing on the classroom and covering vital skills for primary and secondary teachers. The books are strongly influenced by the findings of numerous research projects during which hundreds of teachers were observed at work. The first editions of the series were bestsellers, and these revised second editions will be equally welcomed by teachers eager to improve their teaching skills.

Description : This book provides an overview of pronunciation teaching and learning practices in secondary schools, providing insights into secondary school learners' needs, expectations and motivation regarding the importance of learning English and particularly English pronunciation. It presents a summary of the research on L2 pronunciation acquisition, teaching techniques and factors affecting the learning process as well as the results and conclusions of a longitudinal study conducted in a Polish secondary school. The study indicates that learners consider pronunciation a crucial component of English learning and a predictor of successful communication. Moreover, it shows that accuracy is highly valued by learners, and that systematic and regular pronunciation instruction, even if devoted mainly to segments, has the potential to contribute to the overall improvement in learners' communicative competence and their confidence as speakers and users of English. The book is based on the first-hand experience of a teacher-researcher.

Description : The school curriculum is a contested arena. There are competing pressures from those who advocate that it should be constructed on a subject specific basis, whereas at the other end of the continuum is the stance taken by this book, that learning, and especially learning in the arts, can transcend artificial boundaries between subjects. This book sets out a case for cross-curricular learning involving the arts in secondary schools. Cross-Curricular Teaching and Learning in the Secondary School...The Arts argues for the development of a new, skilful pedagogy which embeds an authentic, cross-curricular approach to teaching and learning in the work of the individual teacher. Teachers are empowered to think about creative pedagogies, and pupils are able to engage in deep learning as a result. Key features of the text include: theoretical examination of key issues curriculum planning materials and resources a wide range of case studies drawn from innovative practise frameworks for assessment and evaluation. Part of the Cross-Curricular Teaching and Learning in the Secondary School series, this textbook breaks the boundaries between curriculum subjects and the arts. It is timely reading for all students on Initial Teacher Training courses as well as practising teachers looking to introduce cross-curricular themes in their own subjects.

Description : This, the first publication to collate a broad international perspective on the pedagogical value of GIS technology in classrooms, offers an unprecedented range of expert views on the subject. Geographic Information Systems (GISs) are now ubiquitous and relatively inexpensive. They have revolutionized the way people explore and understand the world around them. The capability they confer allows us to capture, manage, analyze, and display geographic data in ways that were undreamt of a generation ago. GIS has enabled users to make decisions and solve problems as diverse as designing bus routes, locating new businesses, responding to emergencies, and researching climate change. GIS is also having a major impact in the classroom. Students and teachers around the world are using this significant emerging technology in the secondary school classroom to study social and scientific concepts and processes, to broaden their technical skills, and to engage in problem solving and decision making about local and global issues. International Perspectives on Teaching and Learning with GIS in Secondary Schools brings together authors from 34 countries who profile the current status of GIS in secondary school teaching and learning in their country. Each chapter includes a summary of the country’s educational context, a case study illustrating how GIS is used in secondary schooling, and an assessment of the opportunities and challenges in teaching and learning with GIS now and in the future. The book demonstrates that GIS is not only a technological tool to be used in the classroom, but also a catalyst for motivation, encouragement, and cooperation in understanding and solving global problems. The most up to date and extensive survey of GIS in the secondary education landscape, covering both principles and practice. Professor David Maguire, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Birmingham City University, UK International Perspectives on Teaching and Learning With GIS in Secondary Schools is a highly relevant, critically important, reflective contribution to the literature, providing strong arguments supporting the inclusion for spatial studies for all in secondary school education. Karl Donert, President, EUROGEO This is an invaluable and inspirational examination of innovation in geospatial technologies in secondary schools around the world. Each chapter contains practical models for how to integrate powerful tools for spatial analysis into a range of subjects. It will be useful to classroom teachers and administrators seeking pathways to implementation and teacher educators considering how to prepare the next generation to use geospatial technologies.

Abstract: ABSTRACT of thesis entitled Professional Development Through Collaborative Teaching: A Case Study in a Secondary School submitted by Chan Tak Wing For the degree of Master of Education at the University of Hong Kong August, 2003 This study examines the skills and knowledge development of teachers through the implementation of collaborative teaching. Collaborative teaching refers to the joint planning, implementation and evaluation of lessons by teachers in order to have well-prepared lessons to students, thus fostering the learning progress of students. The Curriculum Development Council in Hong Kong also promotes collaborative teaching as a kind of professional development activity for teachers because it provides a base for teachers to exchange their experience and teaching practice. Through the joint effort of teachers in lesson planning, they are confident in trying out new learning and teaching strategies, designing school-based curriculum and assessment, thus transforming their workplace into a learning community. The research objectives were to: (1) identify the skills and knowledge development of teachers through the implementation of collaborative teaching, and (2) explore the difficulties teachers encountered in its implementation. An interpretive case study paradigm was adopted by which education is considered to be a process and collaborative teaching is a lived experience for teachers in the school under research to participate. In order to yield an intensive and holistic description of its implementation, multiple sources of evidence were obtained by both qualitative and quantitative research methods. The findings are based on 40 questionnaires and 9 semi-structured interviews that were collected in a secondary school, supplemented by documentary analysis and participant observation. Findings reveal that teachers are professionally developed through the practice of collaborative teaching. Teachers particularly improve their teaching strategies and subject knowledge and they are confident in trying out new teaching methods. Among the peer-coaching cycle, pre-lesson planning is particularly useful in acquiring new teaching techniques and knowledge. Time constraint is regarded as the major perceived problem. Teachers expressed that more freedom in selecting time, subjects, student levels and colleagues for collaboration facilitate a higher-order professional development. The findings suggest that professional development; job satisfaction and empowerment of teachers exist in 'contrived collegiality' mentioned by Hargreaves.

Description : This case study book serves as a valuable tool for professors and instructors of educational psychology. It contains 17 cases that represent current areas of interest in Educational Psychology embedded within current challenges that teachers face in today’s middle and high school classrooms. The cases are organized into six major parts: Human Development, Individual Differences and Diversity, Learning Theories, Motivation, Classroom Management, Instructional Approaches, and Assessment and Evaluation.Each case describes a detailed teaching scenario written from either the student or the teachers’ perspective. To engage students in critical thinking, perspective-taking, analysis, problem solving and decision-making, the cases have been intentionally written without a conclusion. Because the cases are open-ended, it allows the professor or instructor more flexibility and autonomy in how they use the cases. Each case is followed by thought-provoking questions, highlighting the significant issues in the case, from which to analyze the case and apply various theoretical viewpoints. While the cases do not replace actual classroom experience, they present a way to immerse students in the classroom’s culture by providing them with real-life teaching examples.

Description : Presenting findings from a wide-ranging study, this book considers the present state of literature teaching in American middle and secondary schools. Probing both context and the instructional approaches, the book shows a discipline staffed by teachers better educated than their predecessors but carrying heavy class loads and isolated from current thinking in literary criticism and pedagogy. The book is based on a series of four interrelated studies: (1) a series of case studies of English programs with local reputations for excellence; (2) a study of book-length works that are required reading for high school students as well as the book-length texts required in public schools, grades 7-12, and in Catholic and independent schools, grades 9-12; (3) a survey of content and approaches in nationally representative samples of English programs in public, Catholic, and independent schools, plus schools whose students consistently win National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Achievement Awards in Writing; and (4) analyses of the selections and teaching suggestions offered in widely used anthologies. Chapters of the book are: Introduction; Studying the Teaching of Literature; Conditions for the Teaching of Literature; The Curriculum as a Whole; Selections Chosen for Study; Selections Available in Literature Anthologies; Classroom Literature Instruction; Instructional Materials in Literature Anthologies; Writing and Literature; The School Library and Students' Reading; and Conclusion. A description of methods and procedures for the four studies, and a list of the most frequently anthologized selections by genre are attached. (Contains 87 references and 90 tables/figures.) (RS)
