Die fünf besten amerikanischen Orchester hatten jahrzehntelang einen Frauenanteil von insgesamt 5 Prozent. Beim Vorspielen vor den männlichen Jurys fielen die Kandidatinnen regelmäßig durch. Offenbar sind Frauen die schlechteren Musiker. Oder doch nicht? Als eine der Jurys nicht mehr sehen konnte, ob ein Mann oder eine Frau spielte, stieg die Quote plötzlich dramatisch an. Alles, was es dazu brauchte, war ein Vorhang. Bei der Einstellung, bei der Beförderung, beim Gehalt – überall werden Frauen massiv benachteiligt. Die Harvard-Professorin Iris Bohnet zeigt in ihrem brillanten Buch What works, dass die Ursache dafür oft verzerrte Wahrnehmungen sind, die unsere Entscheidungen auch dann beeinflussen, wenn wir fest glauben, dass wir ganz objektiv sind. So wie die Jury überzeugt war, dass sie lediglich die musikalische Leistung bewertet. Die Antwort auf dieses Dilemma liegt nicht in der Anpassung der Frauen an männliche Verhaltensmuster oder im Appell an unsere Objektivität. Wir können unsere Wahrnehmung nicht überlisten. Aber wir können mehr Vorhänge aufhängen und die Spielregeln ändern. Das ist die revolutionäre Botschaft von What works.

School inclusion is a perennially popular yet polemic topic in most countries. This timely book explores what is known about inclusion, highlighting outstanding examples of inclusion to provide a complete overview of successful inclusion. The book concentrates on how to make inclusion work - from the view of internationally established practitioners in the field of teacher education - with a focus on what variables are likely to make a difference in practice. What Works in Inclusion? covers three key aspects: Theories of inclusive education Examples of how inclusion can be encouraged and facilitated What prevents inclusion from being successful Drawing on case studies from a wide range of countries, including USA, Australia, UK, Canada and Italy, there is focus on the positive aspects of inclusion: 'how' it can work and 'what actually works', helping you understand successful aspects of inclusion as well as developing an understanding of how inclusive education can best be implemented. In addition to the research-based accounts of how to make inclusion work, the book considers the difficulties that can arise in attempting to achieve successful inclusion and how such barriers can be overcome, to ensure a successful inclusive experience for both teachers and students. This is a key text for all serving and aspiring teachers and SENCOs, as well as those interested in inclusion and SEN in schools, and will inform and challenge in equal measure. Contributors: Adrian F Ashman, Robert Conway, Joanne Deppeler, Roberta Fadda, Laurel M. Garrick Duhaney, Fraser Lauchlan, Margo Mastropieri, Kim M. Michaud, Brahm Norwich, Petra Ponte, Diane Richler, Richard Rose, Spencer J. Salend, Tom Scruggs, Roger Slee, Jacqueline Thousand, Richard Villa, Catharine Whittaker "Focusing on both theory and practice, this timely volume provides a refreshing set of challenges to all of us who are committed to the development of more inclusive education systems. The presentation of ideas and experiences from different countries is particularly powerful in this respect." Professor Mel Ainscow, University of Manchester, UK "Boyle and Topping provide a collection of salient chapters on critical issues pertaining to inclusive education from a collection of world leaders in the field. This book is scholarly, current, and research-based, yet at the same time readable and informative for a wide audience of university teachers and their students, along with practicing educators in the field. Recognizing that inclusive education is an ongoing project this book nevertheless provides a rigorous gestalt of inclusive education theory, practical advice for implementation, and potential barriers to success. This is one of the finest books on this topic currently available." Professor Tim Loreman, Faculty of Education, Concordia University College of Alberta, Canada

Social marketing takes key marketing principles and applies them to campaigns and efforts to influence social action. In Social Marketing to Protect the Environment, the focus turns to the environment, and how social marketing can be successful to change environmental behaviour. The text begins with a definition of the Social Marketing Model and includes a discussion of various tools that can be used to develop social marketing strategies. It then moves into sections on Residential-Related Behaviours and Commercial-Related Behaviours. These sections follow a consistent format and: - Describe a variety of environmental issues - Give examples of the numerous changes in behaviours and/or practices that would contribute to reducing the problem - Provide mini-cases that illustrate the successful use of social marketing principles along with tools to influence this behaviour in similar situations - Review what worked and what could have been improved. A final section provides future directions and recommendations.

Seit den 1990er Jahren werden im Zuge des Paradigmenwechsels von der Input- zur Outputsteuerung Reformen im Schul- und Bildungsbereich in Deutschland aus der Perspektive der Evidenzbasierung diskutiert. So soll gewährleistet werden, dass bildungsbezogene Reformen auf der Basis empirischer Daten - und nicht auf Grund ideologischer oder politischer Ansichten - erfolgen. Um die dafür erforderlichen Daten zu generieren, hat die Bildungsforschung seit dem Paradigmenwechsel eine Expansion erlebt und Bildungsforschung, Bildungspolitik und Bildungsadministration nähern sich einander an. Inwiefern diese Entwicklungen rückblickend auf fast 30 Jahre der evidenzbasierten Steuerung tatsächlich zu Verbesserungen im Bildungswesen beitragen und wie sich der Dialog und die Zusammenarbeit zwischen den Akteuren ausgestaltet, wurde im Rahmen der Herbsttagung 2016 der Kommission Bildungsplanung, Bildungsorganisation und Bildungsrecht (KBBB) in der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Erziehungswissenschaft thematisiert.

Adolescent Literacy

What Works and Why

Originally published in 1988. Much has changed since then in schools. Mobile technologies, interactive whiteboards, digital texts, class websites, student-authored blogs, social networking and photo sharing sites found integrated into so many classrooms hadn’t even been imagined by most educators. What hasn’t changed, however, are the developmental needs of adolescents. A sense of competence, opportunities for creative expression, positive social interactions, and opportunities for self-definition remain centrally important. Similarly, print literacy (i.e., reading and writing with traditional orthography) continues to contribute strongly to academic success, employment opportunity, health, and life satisfaction. Consequently, this book remains very relevant today. Through case descriptions of literacy programs situated in formal and informal settings, the book draws attention to the ways that developmental appropriateness and engaging literacy instruction can assist all youth in reaching their full potential as readers and writers.

What Works in Development? brings together leading experts to address one of the most basic yet vexing issues in development: what do we really know about what works— and what doesn't—in fighting global poverty? The contributors, including many of the world's most respected economic development analysts, focus on the ongoing debate over which paths to development truly maximize results. Should we emphasize a big-picture approach—focusing on the role of institutions, macroeconomic policies, growth strategies, and other country-level factors? Or is a more grassroots approach the way to go, with the focus on particular microeconomic interventions such as conditional cash transfers, bed nets, and other microlevel improvements in service delivery on the ground? The book attempts to find a consensus on which approach is likely to be more effective. Contributors include Nana Ashraf (Harvard Business School), Abhijit Banerjee (MIT), Nancy Birdsall (Center for Global Development), Anne Case (Princeton University), Jessica Cohen (Brookings),William Easterly (NYU and Brookings),Alaka Halla (Innovations for Poverty Action), Ricardo Hausman (Harvard University), Simon Johnson (MIT), Peter Klenow (Stanford University), Michael Kremer (Harvard), Ross Levine (Brown University), Sendhil Mullainathan (Harvard), Ben Olken (MIT), Lant Pritchett (Harvard), Martin Ravallion (World Bank), Dani Rodrik (Harvard), Paul Romer (Stanford University), and DavidWeil (Brown).

Praise for What Works "What Works is essential reading for any businesspeople who want to improve their organizations and their own abilities. This is not a tome of pie-in-the-sky, fluffy how-to advice but is an easy read, crammed with great advice—from improving sales ability to learning how to manage people. Not to be missed." —SHAUN REIN, founder of China Market Research Group and author of The End of Cheap China "Focus, focus, and more focus. That is the incredible theme here of What Works. Robert Cornish and Wil Seabrook hit a true homerun in their message: knowing what you are and what you are not, knowing what works and what doesn't, and knowing when to walk away and when to stay, but hold firm—are the keys to success in business and in life. What Works is more than a sales book. It's as much about the internal sale to your employees and colleagues, as it is to the customer and the prospect. If you want to improve not just your sales, but your business, What Works is a must-read." —TODD NATENBERG, author of "I just got a job in sales! Now what?" A Playbook for Skyrocketing Your Commissions "Robert Cornish has gone beyond the usual fluff and trendy ideas and concepts and taken what actually works in the world, which is what's most important after all. The book is easy to understand with lots of real life examples, and the ideas are very practical and useable. If you want what you are doing to 'work' or to turn your ideas into effective action: read this book." —Robert J. Kriegel, PhD, New York Times and BusinessWeek bestselling author; Commentator, NPR's Marketplace; pioneer in sports psychology, Olympic and professional athlete coach "Robert and Wil have written a wonderful no-nonsense playbook for today's CEO. There's no theory here, but rather a collection of bite-sized, pragmatic ways of thinking and doing that you can put into action right away and see immediate results in your business. This is a great one to keep close to your desk to reference often!" —David Hassell, CEO of 15Five "While many business books and theories comb through what it takes to succeed, What Works has taken hard-won knowledge from the trenches—knowledge that has been tested and applied—resulting in practical information that can be used now. Being a successful entrepreneur myself, I know what it takes to succeed, and this book dives into what works in the real world." —Jon Ferrara, CEO of Nimble.com and founder of GoldMine
