Teacher Education in Taiwan: State control vs marketization

Shen-Keng Yang

Teacher Education in Taiwan: State control vs marketization by Shen-Keng Yang

Since the Teacher Education Act was in place in 1994, student teachers were educated through diverse educational institutions instead of the traditional normal schools (Taiwan's equivalent of teachers' colleges). But such market-based teacher education has been altered by politics, society and culture in the direction of government-controlled teacher education, particularly in the quality evaluation of teacher education. Taiwan maintains teacher education quality by controlling the number of teachers, using teacher assessment to eliminate teachers who are not up to standard, evaluating teacher...

The Climate Change Playbook: 22 Systems Thinking Games for More Effective Communication about Climate Change

Dennis Meadows & Linda Booth Sweeney & Gillian Martin Mehers

The Climate Change Playbook: 22 Systems Thinking Games for More Effective Communication about Climate Change by Dennis Meadows & Linda Booth Sweeney & Gillian Martin Mehers

Advocates and teachers often find it difficult to communicate the complexities of climate change, because the people they are trying to reach hold so many mistaken assumptions. They assume, for example, that when climate change becomes an obvious threat to our everyday lives, there will still be time enough to make changes that will avoid disaster. Yet at that point it will be too late. Or they assume we can use our current paradigms and policy tools to find solutions. Yet the approaches that caused damage in the first place will cause even more damage in the future.

Causes & Cures in the Classroom: Getting to the Root of Academic and Behavior Problems

Margaret Searle

Causes & Cures in the Classroom: Getting to the Root of Academic and Behavior Problems by Margaret Searle

Whether students leave the classroom confident and goal-directed or frustrated and aimless depends on our ability to do two things: diagnose their needs and deliver support. This challenge can be daunting when students come to school with weak vocabulary, poor planning and organization skills, and problems with memory, impulse control, and attention span.

Causes & Cures reveals new neurological research about the root causes of these obstacles and lays out a comprehensive five-step protocol designed to help all educators identify and address common student academic and behavior issues.

The Essentials of Science, Grades 7-12: Effective Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (Priorities in Practice)

Where is U.S. secondary-level science education heading today? That's the question that The Essentials of Science, Grades 7-12 sets out to answer. Over the last century, U.S. science classes have consistently relied on lectures, textbooks, rote memorization, and lab demonstrations. But with the onset of NCLB-mandated science testing and increased concern over the United States' diminishing global stature in science and technology, public pressure is mounting to educate students for a deeper conceptual understanding of science.

Exemplary Practices for Secondary Math Teachers by Alfred S. Posamentier & Daniel Jaye

Every year new secondary mathematics teachers take up positions in middle and high schools. The luckiest novices receive assistance from a coach or mentor: a master mathematics teacher who makes constructive comments, models effective approaches, and illuminates other practical aspects of teaching secondary math. But many new teachers don't have this advantage and must further their development on their own. If you are one of these teachers, this is the book you need.

In these pages, veteran mathematics educators Alfred S. Posamentier, Daniel Jaye, and Stephen Krulik present a treasure chest...

Concept-Rich Mathematics Instruction: Building a Strong Foundation for Reasoning and Problem Solving

Meir Ben-Hur

Concept-Rich Mathematics Instruction: Building a Strong Foundation for Reasoning and Problem Solving by Meir Ben-Hur

Have you ever wondered why students too often have only a rudimentary understanding of mathematics, why even rich and exciting hands-on learning does not always result in "real" learning of new concepts? The answer lies in whether students have actually learned mathematical concepts, rather than merely memorizing facts and formulas.

Concept-Rich Mathematics Instruction is based on the constructivist view that concepts are not simply facts to be memorized and later recalled, but rather knowledge that learners develop through an active process of adapting to new experiences.

The teacher's role is...

Supervision for Learning: A Performance-Based Approach to Teacher Development and School Improvement by James M. Aseltine & Judith O. Faryniarz

Traditional methods of supervision and evaluation focus on teachers' inputs: their lesson plans, instruction, and classroom management practices. But what matters most is the outcome they achieve: learning. This book introduces Performance-Based Supervision and Evaluation (PBSE), a data-driven and teacher-directed approach proven to build educators' analytical and instructional capacity to address the learning needs of their students. It's a move away from disconnected annual goals and outside-in improvement initiatives, and toward the full integration of teacher evaluation, strategic professional...

"Our role is to look at every student as an individual and to help him or her grow. That means not only educating them in the three Rs, but teaching them how to think for themselves, make decisions, solve problems, and be ready for the world."

This was new principal Dennis Littky's message to his staff at Thayer High School--the vision that would guide the rural school's journey from run-down district joke to national showplace. The unorthodox methods he championed, including integrated subject matter, team teaching, apprenticeship, advisories, and individualized curriculum, shook up the failing...

Handbook of Orthography and Literacy

Handbook of Orthography and Literacy by R.

The New Idea of a University

Duke Maskell & Ian Robinson

The New Idea of a University by Duke Maskell & Ian RobinsonSomething has gone deeply wrong with the university - too deeply wrong to be put right by any merely bureaucratic means. What's wrong is, simply, that our official idea of education, the idea that inspires all government policies and 'initiatives', is itself uneducated. With the growing emphasis in higher education on training in supposedly useful skills, has the very ethos of the university been subverted? And does this more utilitarian university succeed in adding to the national wealth, the basis on which politicians justify the large public expenditure on the higher education system? Should...

The Great Reading Disaster: Reclaiming Our Educational Birthright

Mona McNee

The Great Reading Disaster: Reclaiming Our Educational Birthright by Mona McNeeBy the late 1980s half the nation's children were receiving eleven years of progressivist schooling that failed to give them even the elementary basis of education that was completed by the age of seven in earlier days. This great reading disaster was caused by the 'look-say' method of teaching, which presented whole words not individual letters. This book explains the causes and provides the solution to this problem. In 2006, the Secretary of State for Education and Skills has ordered schools to use the phonic method but there seems little evidence that its implications are properly understood...
