Working in Post-Compulsory Education (Paperback, Ed): John Lea, Dennis Hayes, Andy Armitage, Laurie Lomas, Sharon Markless Working in Post-Compulsory Education (Paperback, Ed)
John Lea, Dennis Hayes, Andy Armitage, Laurie Lomas, Sharon Markless
R712 Discovery Miles 7 120 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This book looks at the issues facing teachers and trainers currently working in the field of post compulsory education including questions of vocationalism, managerialism, professionalism, accountability, and educational research. Although aimed in part at raising awareness of such issues and the contrasting views which might be held, it is intended that readers will use the book to develop an active engagement with these issues. This may be achieved through reflection and evaluation within their own professional context but also through embarking on their own research projects. The book is split into three sections. The first section deals with issues raised by locating post compulsory education within a wider social, political and economic context. The second section looks at issues raised by considering post-compulsory education in its organizational context. The third section looks at methodological issues connected with conducting research in post compulsory settings. The format for each section includes overviews with self-assessment exercises, followed by different authors pursuing particular lines of inquiry, finishing with suggestions for ways in which readers might engage in debate and research.

Dropping Out - Why Students Drop Out of High School and What Can Be Done About It (Paperback): Russell W. Rumberger Dropping Out - Why Students Drop Out of High School and What Can Be Done About It (Paperback)
Russell W. Rumberger
R519 Discovery Miles 5 190 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The vast majority of kids in the developed world finish high school-but not in the United States. More than a million kids drop out every year, around 7,000 a day, and the numbers are rising. Dropping Out offers a comprehensive overview by one of the country's leading experts, and provides answers to fundamental questions: Who drops out, and why? What happens to them when they do? How can we prevent at-risk kids from short-circuiting their futures? Students start disengaging long before they get to high school, and the consequences are severe-not just for individuals but for the larger society and economy. Dropouts never catch up with high school graduates on any measure. They are less likely to find work at all, and more likely to live in poverty, commit crimes, and suffer health problems. Even life expectancy for dropouts is shorter by seven years than for those who earn a diploma. Rumberger advocates targeting the most vulnerable students as far back as the early elementary grades. And he levels sharp criticism at the conventional definition of success as readiness for college. He argues that high schools must offer all students what they need to succeed in the workplace and independent adult life. A more flexible and practical definition of achievement-one in which a high school education does not simply qualify you for more school-can make school make sense to young people. And maybe keep them there.

"Boys' achievement has attracted great attention in recent years in many countries. This comprehensive book based on sound research in schools provides practical insights into how the achievement of boysand girls can be raised. It reminds us that it is not all boys or no girlswho underachieve. It demonstrates the respective roles of teaching andlearning, school culture and social factors. No easy answers butexcellent ideas backed by evidence from authoritative, thoroughresearchers with a firm basis in schools." Judy Sebba, Professor of Education, University of Sussex"Teachers will find this book invaluable. It is based on quality researchwhich actually evaluates the impact of the various strategies suggestedfor raising boys' achievement. What is more, in contrast to many of themore 'quick-fix' works in this field, the authors' discussion and analysisis measured and nuanced, and supported by an in-depth understandingof the wealth of theory and research around gender and achievement.It provides a welcome and weighty contribution to an evercontroversial debate." Becky Francis, London Metropolitan UniversityIn this important book, the authors evaluate different approaches and advocate practical, evidence-based strategies, which have the potential to promote boys' as well as girls' achievements. The approaches are discussed within the context of inclusivity, acknowledging the diverse needs and interests of different boys and the invisibility and continuing disadvantage of some girls. The book begins and ends with reflections from students of their own school experiences, and makes practical recommendations for the future.This book draws upon empirical research and work initiated as part of the DfES project on Raising Boys' Achievement. It brings together theoretical and practical issues, and reflects upon the construction of the debate about boys' apparent under-achievement from the perspectives of girls as well as boys. The authors critically explore notions of under-achievement and 'value added', and consider how useful the concept of the 'gender gap' is in advancing the debates. Raising Boys' Achievement in Secondary Schools is key reading for undergraduate and postgraduate Education students, PGCE students, headteachers, senior managers within schools and local education authorities, and policy makers.

A Good Education - A New Model of Learning to Enrich Every Child (Paperback): Margaret White A Good Education - A New Model of Learning to Enrich Every Child (Paperback)
Margaret White
R696 Discovery Miles 6 960 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This book provides an answer to one of the key questions of our time: namely, what constitutes a good education. Presenting a 'four-dimensional' model, it directly considers the essential elements a good education should include. Through forging this framework and outlaying its origins, implications and practice, the book explains how a good contemporary education can be defined and implemented. From the premise that such educational essentials are neither the preserve of the elite nor a minimum standard, White's exploration keeps the child at the heart of the discussion, focusing on every pupil's worth, identity, interactions and development. The author offers a detailed and rigorous perspective reflecting on extensive professional experience, starting with a consideration of the current educational climate and progressing through the book's three parts: looking for a good education creating a model of good education applications, implications and implementation of the model. A Good Education recognises the transformative power of education and reflects on the importance of human factors: teachers' provision for their pupils and students' ability to flourish. This book is addressed to those actively engaged in or concerned about educational provision: graduates entering teaching, school leaders, policy-makers and parents. It also speaks more broadly to all those who know that a good education really matters.

Despite the efforts of teachers and educators, every year secondary schools across the English-speaking world turn out millions of functionally illiterate leavers. The costs in human misery and in wasted productivity are catastrophic. What can schools do to prevent this situation? In this highly accessible book James and Dianne Murphy combine more than 50 years of experience to provide teachers with a thorough, easy to use introduction to the extensive research on reading and its effects on student achievement. Drawing on the work of experts from around the world, the authors explore how we learn to read, how the many myths and misconceptions around reading developed, and why they continue to persist.Building on these foundations chapters go on to examine how the general secondary school classroom can support all levels of reading more effectively, regardless of subject; how school leaders can ensure that their systems, practices and school culture deliver the very best literacy provision for all students; and what it takes to ensure that a racing intervention aimed at adolescent struggling readers is truly effective. The overall message of this books is one of great optimism: the authors demonstrate that the right of every child to learn to read is entirely achievable if schools employ the best research-driven practice.

Foreword by Gervase Phinn. It advocates several different approaches to facilitating this from soft federations between schools to the all-through 3-18 solution. This practical, pragmatic text places young people at the centre of their learning and provides complete guidance on all that is needed to arrange activities between schools. The wide range of activities catered for includes: - Short term 'one off' activities for primary and secondary pupils to carry out together - Longer projects that allow primary and secondary pupils to develop working relationships - Activities which place the pupil in the role of educator for others - Projects which are ideal for collaboration between teachers with very different experiences and skills - Development tasks for leaders of schools who are keen to develop closer relationships with each other - Guidance on different routes of collaboration Dave Harris found that working with unfamiliar age groups challenged his truths of education and reminded him why he first joined the teaching profession. The more you work with other phases of education the more clearly you view the differences and the more you understand why so many pupils suffer at transition between schools. Are You Dropping The Baton? gives teachers practical help to remove the boundaries to progress and help rekindle their passion for teaching.
