Schoenfeld, Alan H.; Lewis, Katherine E. – Journal of Education, 2016
Viewed one way, Alan Schoenfeld's main lines of research and Katherine E. Lewis's dissertation have almost nothing in common. Schoenfeld work has focused on understanding mathematical thinking and teaching, while Lewis' work has focused on mathematical learning disabilities. Viewed another way, there are strong overlaps and strong parallels. In…

Reich, Robert – Journal of Education, 2005
American high school and university students perform community service in record numbers. According to the most recent survey of incoming university freshman, more than 80 percent of students undertook volunteer work in high school. While volunteering is on the rise, political interest and engagement among youth is declining. These two trends lead…

McClay, Wilfred M. – Journal of Education, 2005
Americans are increasingly drawn to their own version of "muddling through," and are likely to view the process of reasoning from intellectual or moral principles with grave suspicion, if not outright hostility, as a form of undemocratic confinement. One sees this with especial clarity in today's institutions of higher education, in…

Rivera, John – Journal of Education, 2005
Over 2,000 years ago, Aristotle wrote a treatise on ethics in which he proposed that there were both intellectual and moral virtues to be developed in the human being. Virtue ("aristeia") was roughly equivalent to the English word "excellence" and the unifying virtue that was both a moral and an intellectual virtue was…

Monsma, Stephen V. – Journal of Education, 2005
Unity without diversity is, at best, boring, and at worse, totalitarian. Diversity without unity constantly threatens to degenerate, at best, into tensions and failures at cooperation and, at worst, into genocide. The sources of diversity in the United States are many. Racial and ethnic differences as well as differences based on national origins,…

Kilpatrick, William K. – Journal of Education, 2005
When the author first heard that Italy wants to adopt the American model of education, his immediate reaction was, "Why would you want to do that?" American schools can scarcely teach students to read and write. American students are abysmally ignorant about history, geography, and world affairs. In international assessments of…

Hill, Jeremiah – Journal of Education, 2004
In this article, the author relates some of the bitter realizations he encountered during his student-teaching years when he realized that not all teachers were willing to help novice teachers. Some of them seemed to believe that teaching is as instinctive to a teacher as flight is to a bird. Despite these obstacles, the author states that he…

Hansot, Elisabeth – Journal of Education, 2004
Oratory is now gone and is virtually an anachronism. And by the same token, declamation has lost its place in the prevailing pedagogy. To memorize a speech and deliver it expressively is a throwback, a relic of an earlier century. In an era when individuals, and pluralism reign, memorizing and reciting a speech is often dismissed as mechanical,…

McTighe, Joe – Journal of Education, 2004
The No Child Left Behind Act has had a pervasive effect on American education in its drive to bring about improvement in student achievement through assessment and accountability. In its standards-based approach to reform, measurement by standardized tests is everything. In this article, the author discusses the issue of private school…

Barber, Michael – Journal of Education, 2004
In the new century people are all aware of the centrality of school systems to the future well-being of their societies as well as their economies. The shared moral purpose of almost every educator is to improve outcomes for all students and simultaneously promote equity. This is the ethical context for the author's discussion of accountability…

Fairbrother, Anne – Journal of Education, 2004
The author of this article was a teacher, who had taught high school English for seven years. Then she was a researcher, observing and interviewing, recording and reflecting. One incident, stretching over four class periods, took her back across that divide between teacher and researcher, and touched her personally. She was trying to understand…

Cottle, Thomas J. – Journal of Education, 2004
Stewart Nicholson is perhaps the most avoided person in a little town in Maine. Nicholson has opinions on anything and everything, and his position typically is presented as the final word. A handsome man, now carrying too much weight, Nicholson was born to be a college professor due to his incessant talking. But due to dyslexia, he never became a…

Vryhof, Steven C. – Journal of Education, 2004
Historically, the American system of higher education has been a patchwork of denominational colleges (along with public institutions), however, the more recent histories of several institutions of higher education seem to have a common theme: the jettisoning of a distinctive identity grounded in a particular worldview in order to create an…

Cottle, Thomas J. – Journal of Education, 2004
In this article, the author discusses how the matter of civil rights, and in particular the treatment of black people at the hands of white people, was conveyed to him most powerfully by three men of Harvard. The first was his high school headmaster, Herbert W. Smith, who introduced their class to the horrors of apartheid through the writings of…
