Pathways For Youth In Australia, Phil Mckenzie Dec 2001

Pathways For Youth In Australia, Phil Mckenzie

Dr Phillip McKenzie

This paper discusses the concept of 'pathways' as an organising idea in Australian education and in the climate of a rapid decline in the number of full-time jobs available to 15 to 19 year-olds together with increasing education participation rates for the 15 to 24 year-olds. The two major objectives of the pathways concept are noted as connections between schooling and work for those who will not enter university or start apprenticeships, and helping young people navigate through an increasingly complex array of training and education options. The author profiles the pathways, analyses pathways policy and provides an overview of ...

"Elections, Voting And Democracy In Local School District Governance", Abe Feuerstein Dec 2001

"Elections, Voting And Democracy In Local School District Governance", Abe Feuerstein

Abe Feuerstein

This article examines the role of school board elections in local school governance. The article argues that the history of school governance including many current reforms such as mayoral takeovers, state intervention, and various market driven models tell a story of decreasing public voice in local educational affairs. The article further argues that the current lack of faith in government in general and school boards in particular is related to an adversarial view of democracy. Deliberative democracy is presented as an alternative to adversarial practices that rely too heavily on elections and voting to create a sense of legitimacy. Some ...


It Works For Me, Too! More Shared Tips For Effective Teaching, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Dec 2001

It Works For Me, Too! More Shared Tips For Effective Teaching, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Charlie Sweet

In the four years since our first book on teaching, we have noticed both on our campus and around the country a new emphasis on the instructor as teacher (vs. scholar). We have read books on the subject, attended the prestigious Lilly Conference, helped establish a Teaching & Learning Center on our campus (Hal served as its first director), and written for new journals focusing on pedagogy. It Works For Me, Too! is our contribution to the Renaissance in College Pedagogy, our attempt to fuel this brightening interest in effective teaching. Like its predecessor, this book is a compilation of tips from workers in the collegiate trenches, but this time our contributors (some volunteers, some drafted) reflect the national interest in this subject and come from all around the country. We begin with a few theoretical approaches, but the major focus of IWFMT (not exactly a memorable acronym) is that average day in the classroom and what momentary magic some instructor has injected into the mix to make the experience much more than average. Sometimes the advice is general, but usually it’s specific. While the advisor may be in a different discipline than you, we have every confidence that you will be able to use this information in your area. After all, most of us weren’t born good teachers ®¢ we made ourselves that. During an observation last fall, Charlie watched as an instructor had her students reproduce exactly what Keats described on that famed Grecian urn. He went immediately into his Am Lit I class and had his students draw up the floor plan for the turret in which Lady Rowena is suddenly transformed into the lost love Ligeia. Only when his class could actually picture that pentagonal structure could they begin to see what magic might have transpired that fateful night. The best tips aren’t only shared; they are borrowed, reshaped, and adapted to one’s own philosophy, and, as John D. MacDonald once said about good writing making more good readers, that reworking makes us all much better teachers. So, read and adapt. Show Less

Proficiency Scales Construction, Ross Turner Dec 2001

Proficiency Scales Construction, Ross Turner

Ross Turner

PISA seeks to report outcomes in terms of proficiency scales that are based on scientific theory and that are interpretable in policy terms. There are two further considerations for the development of the scales and levels: 1. PISA must provide a single score for each country for each of the three domains. It is also recognised that multiple scales might be useful for certain purposes, and the development of these has been considered alongside the need for a single scale. 2. The proficiency descriptions must shed light on trends over time. The amount of data available to support the detailed ...
