Using What We Know about Teaching.
Hosford, Philip L., Ed.
This yearbook contains papers, written by prominent educators, on the use of research in teaching. Also examined are the questions of how the education profession obtains its knowledge, how that knowledge is translated into practice, and how that practice becomes artistic. Chapters are written on: (1) use of research by various professions; (2) curriculum development and research; (3) research on teaching; (4) qualitative research; (5) democratic evaluation practices; (6) applying the science of education; and (7) knowing, teaching, and supervising. Each chapter also includes responses written by teachers, supervisors, administrators, teacher trainers, and other private and public educational personnel. Philip L. Hosford is the author of "Introduction: The Problem, Its Difficulties, and Our Approaches"; "An NIE View of the Problem," by Manuel J. Justiz, follows the seven subject-specific papers. (CJB)
