Ernest L. Boyer: Selected Speeches, 1979-1995.
Boyer, Ernest L.
Shortly before his death in December 1995, Dr. Ernest Boyer (former President of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teachers); working in consultation with his wife, Kay, developed a list of speeches from his Carnegie years that touched on several of the abiding principles underpinning his work. Many of the speeches chosen for this collection were delivered during the first half of the 1990s, an especially prolific period for Dr. Boyer and the Foundation. After the Foreword (Lauren Maidment Green), the collection is divided into three major themes. The first section, "Schools," includes: (1) "Ready to Learn: A Mandate for the Nation" (American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, February 17, 1993); (2) "The Basic School" (National Association of Elementary School Principals, April 11, 1995); (3) "High School: Thoughts on the Great Debate of 1983-84" (Association for the Advancement of International Education, February 21, 1984); and (4) "School Reform in Perspective" (Education Writers Association, April 16, 1993). The next section, "Colleges and Universities," includes: (5) "A College of Quality" (Association of American Colleges, January 14, 1988); (6) "A Community of Scholars" (The Emory Symposium, April 14, 1994); and (7) "The Scholarship of Engagement" (American Academy of Arts and Sciences, October 11, 1995). The final section, "Challenges and Connections," contains: (8) "A Partnership: The Schooling of the Teacher" (A National Conference of Chief State School Officers and College and University Presidents, February 17, 1983); (9)"Making the Connections" (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, March 17, 1993); (10) "Teaching about Religion in Public Schools" (The American Academy of Religion, November 24, 1991); (11) "Lifelong Learning in the Arts" (National Endowment for the Arts, April 16, 1994); and (12) "New Technologies and the Public Interest" (The New York Times, December 13, 1994). (Contains 36 references.) A bibliography listing books written by Ernest Boyer as well as books published by the Foundation between 1981-1997 is included. (ND)
