"Captures the sense of urgency, excitement and challenge all teachers face as they prepare students for a future that is already here. Such an environment calls for extensive research into understanding how the forces of change, and emerging waves of interest associated with these forces, inspire and invite us to imagine a future of learning that is as powerful as it is optimistic for learners from early childhood though to tertiary education"--Back cover.

"This book trains the teacher to meet two of his chief problems: (1) How to make use of the instinctive tendencies of the child to give him a well-rounded education; (2) How to minimize the effects of all tendencies that obstruct correct learning. This book organizes, describes, and evaluates modern trends in education in the light of psychology and of standards, gives special emphasis to the objectives of education, and studies the specific practices by which these objectives are reached. It presents concretely the problems faced by the teacher, and helps the latter to solve these problems. In general, it covers: (1) A survey of the backgrounds of education as generally accepted; and (2) An exposition and analysis of current ways of teaching. The book clarifies the relation between theory and practice by means of a concrete exposition of the backgrounds of teaching. It shows the relationship among the various teaching techniques, and presents a critique of their respective values"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved).

Education for Tomorrow A Biocentric, Student-Focused Approach to Education Reform Michael Risku University of the Incarnate Word, USA and Letitia Harding University of the Incarnate Word, USA There are many books on the market which discuss indigenous ways of knowing, and bemoan western society’s seeming lack of interest in anything other than scientific fact-based knowledge. Equally plentiful are the writings of critical theorists who consider today’s public education system to be divisive, and manipulated by those in power to ensure that their children have the educational advantages needed to maintain the elite hierarchical status quo. Education for Tomorrow is unique in that it brings both of these approaches together first by examining the ways that indigenous people and women of all cultures acquire and pass on knowledge, and the deleterious effects that enforced Eurocentric systems have had on that process. The authors then turn to public schools to explore the influences, both good and bad, that today’s programs have on the distribution of opportunities afforded to all children in the United States. Finally, they offer suggestions for a revolutionary education system which highlights the need for all students to have the encouragement and freedom to look critically and rationally at their lives and at their relationship with the natural world. This can be achieved by looking back to the pedagogical methods of our indigenous ancestors, and forward to a time when all children, regardless of ethnic or socio-economic heritage, are taught in such a way that every aspect of their lives is addressed, nurtured, valued, and enhanced.

Each summer since 1990, a select group of Pennsylvania high school students has taken part in the Pennsylvania Governor's School for Teaching (PGST), held at Millersville University. The school is dedicated solely to the profession of teaching and brings together sophomores and juniors who have expressed an interest in teaching as a career. This volume describes the first two years of PGST--its goals, program, and achievements. The following topics are covered: (1) evolution of the PGST including its rationale and funding information; (2) student recruitment and selection; (3) structure and staffing of the program--resident life counselors, support staff, special presenters, and the cooperative model of staff development; (4) program highlights, including reflective journals, teaching in the school-within-a-school, multicultural experiences, learning theories, teacher/learner pairs--action research, a model school project, and leadership projects; and (5) program evaluation by everyone involved in PGST (64 students, 22 staff, 16 Advisory Council members, 79 parents, and 30 mentor teachers in the students' home districts).

Education for Tomorrow

That control can be accomplished only through, and by, education. By the word "education" in this context, I do not mean merely increased expertness. It has to do with man's moral, as well as his intellectual, development.

The threat of utter tragedy does not arise directly out of man's greater mastery over nature, it comes, as Sir James Jeans has so pointedly stated, from the absence of man's moral control over himself. That control can be accomplished only through, and by, education. By the word "education" in this context, I do not mean merely increased expertness. It has to do with man's moral, as well as his intellectual, development. The end of learning is not knowledge but virtue. "Where shall wisdom be found and where is the place of understanding?" is ever a searching entirety. There are those who say that the universities should develop the intellects of their students. Of course, that statement is true but it is not the whole truth. While we despise Hitler's exhortation to German youth, "Think with your blood," we must bear in mind that it is a proper part of any educational process to help the student to harness his emotions. If by any weird whim of fate we were faced with choosing either first-class brains and second-class characters of second-class brains and first-class characters, surely there could be no doubt about our selection. A weak character not only unfits a man for living in a free society but it also warps the thinking of the most brilliant intellect. I must add that I would be one of the first to oppose strenuously the replacing of tough intellectual effort by evangelistic fervour.
