The Language of Learning: A Guide to Education Terms.
McBrien, J. Lynn; Brandt, Ronald S.
Education has a language of its own. Unfortunately, the general public and even some educators have different understandings of what the terms mean. This book examines more than 200 terms used in K-12 education in the United States. The purpose of this book is to enlighten parents, school board members, business leaders, and other concerned citizens about educational jargon in an objective way, using everyday language. Each entry offers a definition, and some entries include examples and resources for more information. At the end of the book topics are grouped with a list of key words related to the subject. The list can be used as a cross-reference and as a resource. A topic index is included. (LMI)
