Teaching Social Studies in Middle and Secondary Schools

Price
111.80 BBD

This comprehensive introduction to teaching social studies to middle and secondary school students includes many new ideas for teaching in our 21st century classrooms.  Continuing the tradition of social studies innovator Peter Martorella and taking a constructivist approach, the authors address current issues such as diversity, technology, inclusion, and teacher certification.  Martorella believed that the fundamental purpose of social studies should be the development of reflective, competent, and concerned citizens.  The goal of the book is to assist preservice and inservice middle and secondary teachers in becoming more effective teachers of social studies.  To do this, the authors draw on theory, research, and the wisdom of experienced teachers.  

 

The text is organized in three parts:  the origins of social studies, developing reflective and concerned citizens, and analyzing and improving the teaching of social studies.  The book continues to address the need of helping students to develop a global perspective and become open-minded reflective citizens of the world.  The blend of teacher insight, current research findings, and well-grounded theories give new and experienced educators the foundation they need to nurture and sustain effective social studies instruction.

The Golem: What You Should Know About Science 2ed.

Price
58.25 BBD

Through a series of intriguing case studies including the study of relativity, cold fusion, the "memory" in worms, and the sex life of lizards, this book debunks the view that scientific knowledge is a straightforward outcome of competent theorization, observation, and experimentation. The first edition generated much debate and controversy. This second edition contains a substantial new Afterword that responds to some of the criticisms made by scientists. A distinction is made between the responses of scientific fundamentalists who maintain the myth of scientific certainty and more serious-minded critics. In dialogue with these latter critics The Golem attempts to build an island of reasoned debate between the two cultures. It seeks to replace the "Science Wars" with mutual understanding.

    What Every Teacher Needs To Know About Assessment

    Price
    100.45 BBD

    This is the second edition of a highly successful book, previously titled Better Instruction Through Assessment: What Your Students Are Trying to Tell You. The revision was undertaken to respond to the No Child Left Behind legislation, which has changed the way we must look at students' achievement data. This book shows you how to:
    - get the most out of your state's high stakes standardized tests
    - use test results to make the right decisions about how to teach the students in your class
    - avoid becoming a victim of accountability systems
    - infuse "test savvy" into everyday instruction.

    It covers a wide variety of types of assessments, from classroom-based, teacher created tests to state-mandated, high stakes standardized tests, both selected response and performance assessment. Unlike traditional "textbooks," this book was written specifically for practicing teachers and administrators. It contains real-world examples which demonstrate the role of assessment in a teacher's daily work. It is filled with actual student responses and scenarios based on real life situations faced by teachers.

    What is English Teaching

    Price
    96.95 BBD

     

    Is it the role of English teachers to teach basic literacy skills? * If not, what do English teachers think they should be doing? * How should basic literacy be taught in schools? These are important questions which have recently attracted significant political, media and parental debate. In addressing them, this book explores the question What is English Teaching? from a variety of perspectives, including teachers' beliefs about what they should be teaching, the views of the government, and the reality of young people's experiences in the 1990s. In particular, it explores the question of how - and even whether - the English subject area is capable of meeting its own, and the outside world's, expectations for teaching not only its specialist concerns, but also general literacy. The book explores ways in which the teaching of English might develop - for instance, by balancing its efforts evenly between literature study, media study and knowledge about language - and how it might contribute to wider literacy teaching, by sharing its distinctive teaching strategies with teachers of other subjects.

    What Works In Schools

    Price
    93.80 BBD

    Any school in the United States can operate at advanced levels of effectiveness--if it is willing to implement what is known about effective schooling. If we follow the guidance offered from 35 years of research, says author Robert J. Marzano, we can enter an era of unprecedented effectiveness for the public practice of education. In What Works in Schools: Translating Research into Action, Marzano synthesizes that research to provide clear and unequalled insight into the nature of schooling.

    Marzano defines the factors affecting student achievement and offers compelling answers to once-elusive questions:

  • How can schools set academic goals that do not underestimate student potential?
  • How critical are staff collegiality and professional development?
  • Do all students have equal opportunity to learn, given current curriculum requirements?
  • Supplemental versus required content-is there room for redefinition?
  • What types of parental and community involvement make a real difference?
  • What instructional strategies really work?
  • What influence can an individual teacher have (as separate from the influence of the overall school)?
  • How can teachers manage classrooms that promote positive student-and-teacher relationships?
  • How can teachers structure their curricula to better sequence and pace content?
  • Can teachers really overcome a student's negative home environment?
  • How does an understanding of motivation theories help students and teachers overcome learning obstacles?
  • What specific learning strategies can enhance learned intelligence and background knowledge?

    In each chapter, Marzano recommends specific-and attainable-action steps to implement successful strategies culled from the wealth of research data.

    Schools can and do affect student achievement. In his latest work, Marzano leads the way in establishing positive approaches that can make the long-held dream of effective public education a reality.
