Book Description :

Sports builds character is a truism rarely questioned by Americans. Most parents encourage their children to take part in competitive athletics, and organized team sports are available to young people from the early years of grammar school through high school and college. Occasionally some disturbing incidents cast doubt on the assumption that sport is necessarily beneficial to character development: a serious injury on the playing field due to gratuitous violence, drug use, gambling, or sexual misconduct. Whole communities have wondered how organized team sports, supposedly designed to build character, can lead to such drastic deviations from the imagined ideals.In Lessons of the Locker Room, anthropologist Andrew W. Miracle Jr. and sociologist C. Roger Rees explore the fascinating underpinnings of school sports and examine the evidence to support the prevailing assumption that sport is an ennobling experience. They find that participation has little effect on positive character development. Far from building model citizens, their research shows that competitive team sports may foster selfish motives and antisocial behavior. Rather than learning self-sacrifice and dedication, athletes often pick up the message that winning isn't everything - it's the only thing.. . . an excellent supplementary text in undergraduate courses in the sociology of sport or the sociology of education. It also could serve to raise the consciousness of educational reformers and activist citizens. And, it is a valuable resource for academicians who are concerned about the role of sport in society but who do not maintain a research interest in the field. -The Association for the Study of Play. . . it belongs in the library of all sport sociologists interested in the realtionships between sport and education. The book is a good example of functional analysis and might well be assigned to graduate classes in sport sociology and physical education. Educators pondering the future of sport in their schools would also be well advised to read it. -Sociology of Sport Journal

Book Description :

Teaching, Leading, and Learning encourages pre-service and in-service teachers to question the "why, what, when, and how" of instructional strategies. The text combines theory and current research with practice in order to help teachers understand the performances, dispositions, and knowledge base required for success. Teachers are encouraged to consider the "big-picture variables": professional development, teachers as leaders, the intangibles of teaching, parents and families, and working creatively within the system. With an emphasis on meeting current standards, each chapter includes marginal icons that reference INTASC (Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium) standards, as well as recent developments related to the No Child Left Behind Act. Coverage of hot topics in the field includes how teachers should respond to terrorism and bullying, the use of portfolios to meet requirements for beginning teachers, and assessment and accountability. Unique coverage of strategies for teachers who work with young children underscores the significance of neuroscience and brain-based learning for children from birth to age eight.

Book Description :

This book debunks prevailing modern management theories and fashions as applied to higher education. At the same time it provides practical guidance for a clear and easily understood set of principles as to how universities and colleges can be re-energized and their staff mobilized to be effective in meeting the growing and changing needs of the global knowledge society. It is anchored in knowledge of management and organizational theory and in the literature about higher education which is critiqued from a clear theoretical perspective based on and tested through long experience of university management and leadership.Chris Duke offers challenging advice for managers in tertiary and higher education - from self-managing knowledge workers who may feel themselves to be the new academic proletariat, through to institutional heads, some of whose attempts to manage using strategic planning, management-by-objectives and other techniques seriously unravel because they fail to benefit from the talents and networks which make up the rich 'underlife' of the institution. Loss of institutional memory and failure to tap tacit know-how and mobilize commitment through genuine consultation and shared participatory management inhibits organizational learning and generates apathy - or drives staff dedication and creativity into oppositional channels.Managing the Learning University indicates how higher education institutions can link and network their internal energies with external opportunities and partners to be successful and dynamic learning organizations. It points the way to enabling an enterprising and valued university to thrive in hard times, and to be a community where it is actually a pleasure to work.
