Providing Leadership in the Language Arts and the Psychology of Learning.
Ediger, Marlow
This paper contends that, if pupils are to achieve as optimally as possible, the principal needs to provide quality leadership in having teachers stress vital principles of learning from educational psychology. The paper states that there are selected principles of learning that all schools of psychology emphasize. It first enumerates and elaborates on five of these principles. Noting that there are specific schools of thought in the psychology of learning that principals need to understand to help their teachers in teaching pupils, the paper then discusses these diverse psychologies of learning, including (1) the measurement movement; (2) constructivism; and (3) pupil decision-making. The paper also considers the contributions of Jerome Bruner and Jean Piaget, two outstanding educational psychologists. It continues by discussing the basics in the curriculum, that is, the importance of pupils learning what is basic. Finally, the paper concludes by reiterating the different psychologies of learning.
