Tomorrow's Teachers, Tomorrow's Schools, and Tomorrow's Schools of Education are a collection of reports from the Holmes Group, and later the Holmes Partnership, addressing principles of teaching as a profession by focusing on the teachers' roles in the schools, the role of schools in communities, and the role and obligation of schools and colleges of education in the preparation of teachers. Tomorrow's Teachers (1986) outlines the principles of teaching as a profession, which include making the education of teachers rigorous and relevant, providing defensible standards of entry into the profession, and connecting schools of education with K-12 schools. Tomorrow's Schools (1990) covers the principles for the design of professional development schools including promoting more ambitious conceptions of teaching and learning, adding to and reorganizing knowledge about teaching and learning, ensuring responsible research and development is done in schools, providing professional development for veteran teachers and administrators to improve schools, creating incentives for college faculties to work in schools, and strengthening relations between schools and the broader political/social/economic communities in which they reside. Tomorrow's Schools of Education (1995) advocates a new core curriculum for all prospective education professionals and the necessary restructuring of the organization of schools, colleges and departments of education in research universities. This collection is useful for courses on teacher education, curriculum development, restructuring schools of education and teacher preparation, educational administration, principles of teaching and learning, school reform, teacher reform, research on teaching and learning, research on the development of schools.

Rich clinical preparation combined with progressive experiences in professional development school (PDS) settings are proposed to bring about systemic and impactful transformation of educator preparation and professional growth in order to improve and enhance P12 student learning. In this book, diverse authors describe their efforts to forge PDS partnerships to develop and deliver high quality training and practical experiences for candidates, and simultaneously provide professional development for experienced practitioners in ways that mirror recommendations found in authoritative reports and literature. The authors’ collective wisdom is vividly captured in the multivoiced chapters that are collaborations between cooperating teachers, school administrators, county and district level administrators, university supervisors, and instructional faculty. The contexts authors write about are recognizable, and the accomplishments they experienced and challenges faced will resonate with institutions courageously undertaking change or renewal. The book will be invaluable to school and university faculty and administrators as they transition to a partnering model of clinical preparation for teacher candidates: it will help stakeholders decide if their schools and institutions are ready to commit to a partnership, and highlight the benefits they stand to gain, but realistically address challenges that may be faced by administrators and faculties as well as teacher candidates in the PDS enterprise.

An Orientation to Music Education: Structural Knowledge for Music Teaching focuses on the thoughtful consideration of strategies for successful teaching in both the required and elective music curricula. Practioners agree that teacher clarity and student understanding of the purpose of daily and longer-range instruction are critical in all settings and styles of teaching and learning. With this consensus, the importance of organizing teaching and learning so that they result in effective practice requires all teachers to think in terms of the several types of objectives, and the various strategies, that allow meaningful feedback to reach both individuals and classrooms of learners. Teachers are the only individual who should make the final decisions on instructional priorities; to help the teacher do this effectively, the text provides a background of elements &, the reform movement that affect how teachers make these critical decisions. Practice in making these decisions is then provided throughout the text by engaging students in thinking and discussion activities of the possible goals and venues of instruction. Written for both pre-service and in-service teachers, the text stresses the use of what is known from research and experience about successful music teaching including: The musician's preparing to teach The twenty-first-century music program The reform movement and its controversies for teachers and students Reforms in teacher education Psychological and sociological issues in establishing priorities Tools for organizing instruction in diverse educational settings, including educational taxonomies ranging from Bloom to Marzano and Anderson, reflective of current learning theories Becoming and being a music teacher

The First Amendment, which guarantees Americans rights of expression, has come to epitomise the meaning of freedom in the United States. Yet as the ability to express themselves expands into boundless opportunities with the advent of electronic media in the twenty-first century, new threats of censorship arise. In First Amendment, First Principles, attorney John Wirenius explores the challenges to freedom of speech and examines the evolution of how the First Amendment has come to the meaning it bears today. In his bold rethinking of the concept of freedom of speech, Wirenius writes a through, scholarly discussion of the body of law surrounding free speech and a passionate defence of his convictions regarding the First Amendment. He reminds readers that First Amendment must be protected in order to protect them. In this revised edition, the author has added a chapter that explores liability for copycat crimes: What is the media's responsibility for violence committed in the aftermath of graphic depictions of murder and other violent acts? wartime and cites the latest cases dealing with such subjects as pomography, hate speech and the Internet.
