Essays in Relating Theory to Practice in Education. Third Edition.
Weinstock, Henry R.
This book is designed to aid the professional educator in developing a high degree of analytical competence in order to grasp the special relationships linking educational theory to practice. The first section of this book contains eight articles that present an overall view of philosophy and education. The subsequent three sections deal more with those specific areas which are of interest to the educator concerned with finding solutions to today's pressing educational problems. In the second section are eight articles that deal specifically with science and education. It begins with Dewey's views on a science of education and then presents other aspects dealing with science and education. The third section focuses on liberal arts and education. It contains seven articles, most of which deal with higher education, though secondary education and American culture are also discussed. The fourth section contains eight articles concerning professionalism and education. Some of the topics discussed are teaching, public education, sex education, "new" history and social studies, and evaluation of instruction. (RC)
