The article reports on a quasi experimental study, which examined the relative effectiveness of two instructional approaches (an innovative approach developed by the author and a case-study approach) at fostering idea-based, transformative experiences in a high school science class. The construct of an idea-based, transformative experience was derived from Dewey's work on aesthetics, experience, and education. Such experience involves the active use of a concept and an expansion of perspection and value.

by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi & Jennifer Schmidt — 1998
Much of the storm and stress that characterize the teenage years is cat, sed by a mismatch between the genetically primed behavior of adolescents and the societal demands imposed upon them by the present stage of sociocultural evolution. The two most obvious solutions—to change the genetic programming or to return to a social system that would accommodate the full expression of adolescent drives— are not feasible at the moment, but a third possibility exists that might reduce some of the conflict. Discovering what adolescents enjoy doing that is consistent with their genetic programming and also with social requirements, and making opportunities available for such activities— while reducing or modifying those that satisfy only one or neither of these requirements--may be helpful. A great deal of the stress of the teenage years will be eliminated if we allowed the natural resilience of adolescents to assert itself in activities that make their lives enjoyable and meaningful.

by Dena Swanson, Margaret Spencer & Anne Petersen — 1998
The purpose of this chapter is twofold: (1) to present an overview of the complex experiences of adolescents that impact the achievement of developmental tasks; (2) to examine their impact on the processes of identity formation in adolescence.

by Charles Bidwell, Barbara Schneider & Kathryn Borman — 1998
In the following pages, we will argue that understanding the selective processes through which young people now enter the labor market requires two kinds of information. First, we must describe the opportunities to work that are available to these young people as they move through high school and postsecondary education. Second, we must discover how, given their opportunities, they act to form their own occupational trajectories or job histories.

by Hugh Sockett — 1997
There are three kinds of problems for character educators which provide the framework for this discussion. First, there is the problem of definition: What is the difference between what a psychiatrist and an educator might say? Second, there is the problem of understanding. What is needed to develop moral agency in children places huge demands on teachers' understanding. Third, there is a problem of social context. Living in a culture in which we reach for explanations that do not respect moral autonomy, we believe in the therapeutic or the clinical as solutions for our weaknesses. This provides teachers, principals, parents, and the children themselves with ways to circumvent moral responsibility for their actions. So we need a clear idea of what the social and institutional context of schools should look like for the development of character, especially for those children labeled ADHD.

by David Berliner — 1997
An examination of theories of child rearing espoused by the Christian Right from the perspective of modern psychology.

by Howard Gardner & Veronica Dyson — 1994
Education's main purpose should be to achieve understanding, but such understanding is hard to achieve because educators have little knowledge of how to teach for it and students harbor intellectual habits that inhibit performances of understanding. This article emphasizes that students' access to disciplinary tools is crucial in quality education.

by William Rohwer Jr. & Kathryn Sloane — 1994
Given this rationale for the existence of the present chapter, we shall examine the Taxonomy from several psychological perspectives on learning, including those extant at the time the Taxonomy was aborning and those that emerged in succeeding decades up to the present reign of cognitive science. In doing so, we will focus on features of the Taxonomy that appear to presuppose one or another theoretical proposition about human learning or thinking.

by David Krathwohl — 1994
In this chapter, let us briefly look at the past, present, and future of the Taxonomy. We will seek to learn from the past, using the Taxonomy as a case study of a heuristic framework. By reviewing the process of developing and disseminating it, we can reveal what might contribute to a heuristic's success and what generalizations we can draw from this experience. Sinclair also inquired about "the scientific process" of building taxonomies. So, looking at research right up to the present, we can ask "Regarding its 'scientific validity,' what is the best interpretation of these data"? Lastly, in terms of the future, we can ask "Where, if anyplace, do we go from here"?

by Rika Burnham — 1994
This article explains how to encourage students to respond to art rather than talk at them about what they should know.

by Howard Gardner — 1994
The article presents Howard Gardner's response to the three preceding commentaries on his book, "Multiple Intelligences: The Theory in Practice." After commenting on some of their specific remarks, the article concludes with a more general discussion of the relationship between psychological theory and educational practice.

by Henry Levin — 1994
This commentary indicates that Gardner's "Multiple Intelligences: The Theory in Practice" represents an attempt to incorporate many perspectives and previously published essays in the educational implications of multiple intelligences theory. This article suggests that the book focuses less on schools and more on further development of the theory and possible uses and applications.

by Elliot Eisner — 1994
This commentary on Gardner's "Multiple Intelligences: The Theory in Practice" suggests that Gardner has made major contributions to discussions of the mind and educational goals. This article identifies issues arising from Project Zero's efforts to conceptualize and assess varieties of human intelligence and to follow implications of its work in the schools.

by Elena Nightingale & Lisa Wolverton — 1993
Adolescents have no prepared, appreciated, approved place in society, so they tackle identity formation and development of self-worth and self-efficacy on their own. Society must change its view that youth are troubled or harmful and instead provide opportunities for meaningful roles for adolescents, particularly those without many years of formal education.

by Donald Roberts — 1993

by David Hamburg — 1993
With America's eroding social support, transitioning from childhood to adulthood is difficult. Adolescents need help in forming healthy lifestyles to positively affect their futures.
