Annotated Bibliography on Human Ecology. Ecological Theory of Teaching.
This annotated bibliography focuses on the ecological approach to the study of human development and on the relationship of this approach to an ecological theory of teaching. Topics covered include: (1) the ecological approach to the study of human development; (2) the impact of teacher characteristics on education and teaching; (3) the teacher-student relationship; (4) the effects of family characteristics and family involvement on students and schooling; and (5) the effects of interpersonal interactions and the classroom environment on education and teaching. The first section of the bibliography contains brief annotations of journal articles and monographs. In the second section, references selected from the first section are reviewed in greater depth and summarized. This is one of a series of reports that form a part of the initial phase of a project to develop an ecological theory of teaching. The intent of the series is to provide access to the concepts, paradigms, and findings of the disciplines selected for review. The long-range goal of the project is the development of a theory of teaching that approaches and views classroom teaching and learning from an ecological perspective. (JD)
