THE SCHOOL AND SOCIETY, Burnett, Joe R (Preface)
21 Burnett, Joe R (Preface) THE SCHOOL AND SOCIETY
Southern Illinois University 1980 080930967X / 9780809309672 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. First published in 1899,The School and Society describes John Dewey's exper iences with his own famous Laboratory School, started in 1896. Dewey's experiments at the Labora­tory School reflected his original social and educational philosophy based on American experience and concepts of de mocracy, not on European education models then in vogue. This forerunner of the major works shows Dewey's per­vasive concern with the need for a rich, dynamic, and viable society. In his introduction to this volume, Joe R. Burnett states Dewey's theme. Industrialization, urbanization, science, and technology have created a revolution the schools cannot ignore. Dewey carries this theme through eight chapters: The School and Social Progress; The School and the Life of the Child; Waste in Education; Three Years of the University Elementary School; The Psychology of Elementary Education; Froebel's Educa­tional Principles; The Psychology of Occupations; and the Development of Attention.

Association for Supervision 1994 0871202298 / 9780871202291 Paperback Near Fine 
A tight clean copy, no markings throughout. Learning to inquire together, to generate knowledge and action simultaneously-that's action research. This book provides practical guidance for conducting schoolwide action research to improve student learning. Begin with a broad assessment of the health of the school or with the perception of a problem in one area, such as students' achievement in mathematics. As staff members-or parents or community members—what do you do? Calhoun presents the simple process of collective study in action. First, seek agreement with others in your school community on what to study. Second, collect and share information about students' knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Third, search your own experiences and examine educational research for strategies and programs that will improve your students' math understanding. Fourth, work together to improve curriculum and instruction in math. Fifth, collect data on results, study effects, and begin the cycle all over again.

MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES AND STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT: SUCCESS STORIES FROM SIX SC HOOLS, Campbell, Linda
24 Campbell, Linda MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES AND STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT: SUCCESS STORIES FROM SIX SC HOOLS
Association for Supervision 1999 087120360X / 9780871203601 Paperback Fine 
A crisp clean copy, no markings throughout. Finally, a book about multiple intelligences (MI) theory that answers the q uestions that all educational innovations must ultimately address: "What ar e the results on student achievement?" "How were those results achieved?" T his book describes six schools that have used MI theory for five or more ye ars. Through case studies of two elementary, two middle-level, and two high schools, Linda and Bruce Campbell illustrate why markedly different school s large and small, rich and poor, inner-city and suburban looked to MI when they wanted to boost student learning. In schools with long-term MI programs, achievement gains are impressive; in fact, the disparity between white and minority students is reduced or elim inated. Students at all three levels outperform their district, county, and national peers in basic skills. Such gains are possible even though teache rs do not teach to standardized and state assessment tests. Instead, they b elieve that all students have strengths, and, as a result, students come to believe in themselves as well. Moreover, teachers have discovered that ins truction through multiple intelligences is so positive and engaging that st udents--all students can't help but learn. This book provides educators who are new to MI theory with solid achievement data and curricular formats to support, inform, and inspire their work. Those who have already worked with MI theory will find encouragement to continue and suggestions for refining their efforts.

THE NAKED ROOMMATE: AND 107 OTHER ISSUES YOU MIGHT RUN INTO IN COLLEGE, Cohen, Harlan
28 Cohen, Harlan THE NAKED ROOMMATE: AND 107 OTHER ISSUES YOU MIGHT RUN INTO IN COLLEGE
Sourcebooks, Inc. 2005 1402203373 / 9781402203374 Paperback Near Fine 
A syndicated columnist for teens and young adults and the author of Campus Life Exposed, Cohen dishes commonsensical wisdom in "the first of what will be many editions of this book." Presumably, forthcoming editions will addr ess the ever-evolving challenges of campus life (cyber-classrooms, perhaps? ), but what's in this one will feel pretty familiar to anyone who attended college within the last 25 years. Tips include: be yourself, lock your door , set boundaries with your roommate, don't drink too much and be sensitive to others' differences. Cohen tackles the ins and outs of residence halls, student organizations, friendships, dating, drugs and money-oh, and he cons iders classes, too, though with perhaps with less enthusiasm (and certainly fewer pages) than he devotes to sex. Though he lists interesting statistic s, additional resources and plenty of first-person letters from students se eking his advice, Cohen doesn't offer much that a reasonably intelligent co llege kid couldn't figure out on his or her own-but that may not be a weakn ess: "everything's going to be okay" could be just what a nervous first-yea r student needs to hear most.

35 Diener, Alexander C. BORDERS: A VERY SHORT INTRODUCTION (VERY SHORT INTRODUCTIONS)
Oxford University Press 2012 0199731500 / 9780199731503 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Compelling and accessible, this Very Short Introduction challenges the perception of borders as passive lines on a map, revealing them instead to be integral forces in the economic, social, political, and environmental processes that shape our lives. Highlighting the historical development and continued relevance of borders, Alexander Diener and Joshua Hagen offer a powerful counterpoint to the idea of an imminent borderless world, underscoring the impact borders have on a range of issues, such as economic development, inter- and intra-state conflict, global terrorism, migration, nationalism, international law, environmental sustainability, and natural resource management. Diener and Hagen demonstrate how and why borders have been, are currently, and will undoubtedly remain hot topics across the social sciences and in the global headlines for years to come. This compact volume will appeal to a broad, interdisciplinary audience of scholars and students, including geographers, political scientists, anthropologists, sociologists, historians, international relations and law experts, as well as lay readers interested in understanding current events.
