“What Pragmatism Can Offer Educational Reform Debates: Method, Means, And Motive”, Abe Feuerstein, Sue Ellen Henry Jun 2012

“What Pragmatism Can Offer Educational Reform Debates: Method, Means, And Motive”, Abe Feuerstein, Sue Ellen Henry

Sue Ellen Henry

This paper advocates for reframing educational reform through the philosophical lens of pragmatism. After reviewing the problems that arise from the three dominant paradigms of school change suggested by Hord's 1992 review of the literature, we propose seven criteria for pragmatic thinking that can be useful in crafting reform efforts. Following the application of these criteria to a short case study of a failed educational reform in an urban school, the paper concludes with discussion of the benefits of pragmatism as a philosophical foundation for educational reform.

Many stories fail to capture the reader's interest even though they have a clear point of view, well-rounded characters and an interesting plot. What's missing? One key element that writers frequently overlook is setting. They treat it merely as backdrop.

Five More Ways Sports Coaches Model Good Instruction, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

An article in the May 2003 issue of The Teaching Professor that highlights six ways teachers can learn from coaches got us thinking.

Hawthorne's Dating Problem In "The Scarlet Letter", Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Nov 2011

Hawthorne's Dating Problem In "The Scarlet Letter", Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

This article explores the dating problem in Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel, The Scarlet Letter. In The Custom House, Hawthorne relates how he discovers several foolscap sheets written by a predecessor, Mr. Surveyor Pue, about Hester Prynne. These six sheets supposedly offer two types of accounts about Hester: aged persons, alive in the time of Pue and from whose oral testimony he had made up his narrative, remembered her, in their youth and those who had heard the tale from contemporary witnesses. A dating problem arises with the first group. Critics concur that historical documents place the events in The Scarlet Letter …


Hemingway's "The Killers", Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Nov 2011

Hemingway's "The Killers", Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

In his seminal study Hemingway and the Dead Gods, John Killinger relates Papa's fictional world to existententialism, concluding that Hemingway sees that individuality is not a quality which can be superimposed externally on a man, but that it must be internally achieved by a decision to be at all times an authentic person and to accept the full responsibility of action proper to a primary agent. In his philosophy, as in that of Kierkegaard, Heidegger, and Sartre, the opportunity for such a decision is presented as a moment of crisis, which, for him, is produced by confronting death or violence.

Aussies Schools Are Not So 'Undemocratic', John Ainley, Adrian Beavis, Gary Marks, Ken Rowe Jul 2009

Aussies Schools Are Not So 'Undemocratic', John Ainley, Adrian Beavis, Gary Marks, Ken Rowe

Dr John Ainley

The underlying thesis in the recent book 'Undemocratic schooling' by Richard Teese and John Polesel is that social reproduction in Australia, that is the transmission of socioeconomic inequality from one generation to the next, is particularly strong. But Teese and Polesel have over-stated the case. Whereas socioeconomic background and schools do influence educational outcomes, and thus subsequent labour market outcomes, they are far from having a determining influence. The system is far more open than generally believed. Their thesis undervalues the importance of quality schooling and the contributions that teachers and schools make to the development of their students' abilities, …
