New Zealand Council for Educational Research, Wellington.; Australian Council for Educational Research, Hawthorn.
Topics and issues relating to educational research are presented in the form of separate news sheets or essays. A case study of the merits and deficiencies of Penrose High School's "Whanau House," is included as an example of curriculum innovation. An exploratory study describing expectations of New Zealand teachers demonstrates how teacher expectations cause certain students to be stereotyped and treated differently. An economist looks at what it costs society to invest in children's education, and what it pays. Some of the effects of school size on the behavior of pupils are reviewed. Two very different techniques to fit the work to the child (student team learning and self-paced instruction) are described. One article describes research findings on how successful Internal Assessment has been in Queensland's secondary school program. A summary of the techniques, theoretical basis, and changing nature of programmed learning is presented, as well as its impact on teaching. Other miscellaneous items of information include a guide to making up classroom tests, an analysis of textbook English, and a guide to class nomenclature. (RL)
