Die Forderung von Selbstkonzepten gilt als ein wichtiges Ziel im Zusammenhang mit dem Bildungsauftrag der Grundschule. Die realistische Einschatzung eigener Starken und Schwachen ist dabei eine wichtige Einflussgrosse im Hinblick auf die fachliche wie auch uberfachliche Kompetenzentwicklung von Kindern im Grundschulalter. Das Buch liefert eine Zusammenschau theoretischer Modelle, empirischer Ergebnisse und padagogischer Konsequenzen in Bezug auf die Entwicklung von Selbstkonzepten bei Kindern im Alter von ca. sechs bis zehn Jahren. Neben einem Uberblick uber neuere Befunde aus der empirischen (entwicklungsbezogenen) Lehr-Lernforschung werden insbesondere Schlussfolgerungen fur die padagogische Praxis in den Handlungsfeldern des Grundschulbereichs zur Diskussion gestellt. Folgende Themen stehen dabei im Vordergrund: Entwicklung des Selbstkonzepts und impliziter Fahigkeitstheorien, geschlechtsspezifische Unterschiede in der Entwicklung des Selbstkonzepts, Einflussfaktoren auf die Entwicklung des Selbstkonzepts sowie Diagnose und Forderung von Selbstkonzepten in der Grundschule.

Ziel der vorliegenden Studie ist es, die Entwicklung physikbezogener Interessen und selbstbezogener Kognitionen von Schülerinnen und Schülern im Übergang von der Primar- zur Sekundarstufe zu untersuchen. Darüber hinaus beschäftigt sich die Arbeit mit der Frage, inwiefern die Gestaltung des physikbezogenen Unterrichts in den beiden Schulstufen Einfluss auf diese Entwicklung nimmt. In der Studie wurden quantitative und qualitative Forschungsmethoden miteinander verzahnt. So wurden 348 Schülerinnen und Schüler im Rahmen einer längsschnittlichen Fragebogenstudie vom vierten bis zum siebten Schuljahr zu den benannten Zielvariablen befragt. Darüber hinaus wurden ergänzende Interviews mit 18 Schülerinnen und Schülern aus der Längsschnittstichprobe geführt. Es zeigte sich, dass die physikbezogenen Interessen und selbstbezogenen Kognitionen der Schülerinnen und Schüler über die Zeit hinweg signifikant abnehmen. Dabei war der Rückgang des situationalen Interesses am physikbezogenen Unterricht, insbesondere in der Gruppe der Gymnasiasten, besonders stark ausgeprägt. Veränderungen in der Unterrichtsgestaltung, die oftmals mit dem Wechsel von der Primar- in die Sekundarstufe einhergehen, scheinen den Rückgang des unterrichtsbezogenen Interesses nach dem Schulstufenübergang zu beeinflussen.

MISSION STATEMENT: Maximising selfconcept is recognised as a critical goal in itself and a means to facilitate other desirable outcomes in a diversity of settings. The desire to feel positively about oneself and the benefits of this feeling on choice, planning, persistence, and subsequent accomplishments transcend traditional disciplinary barriers and are central to goals in many social policy areas. ‘International Advances in Self Research’ monograph series publishes scholarly works that primarily focus on selfconcept research and pertain to a broad array of selfrelated constructs and processes including selfesteem, selfefficacy, identity, motivation, anxiety, selfattributions, selfregulated learning, and metacognition. The research focus of the monograph series includes theory underlying these constructs, their measurement, their relation to each other and to other constructs, their enhancement and their application in research and practice. Chapters address a wide crosssection of: settings participants and research areas This series has a special interest in selfconcept theory and research in settings characterised by diversity, such as special education, linguistic diversity, socioeconomic and cultural diversity.

In Praise of the Cognitive Emotions Routledge Revivals

First published in 1991, In Praise of Cognitive Emotions comprises fourteen of Scheffler's most recent essays – all of which challenge contemporary notions of education and rationality. While defending the ideal of rationality, he insists that rationality not be identified with a mental faculty or a mechanism of inference but taken rather as the capactity to grasp principles and purposes and to evaluate them in the light of relevant reasons. Examining a broad range of issues – from computers in school to math education, from metaphor to morality – these essays are unified by Scheffler's conviction of the primacy of critical thought in education. Scheffler is especially concerned to promote a broad interpretation of rationality to counteract the narrowing of vision accompanying the technological revolution now sweeping education. Addressing three specific areas of curriculum, the work offers a critique of computer applications to education, develops a notion of strategic rationality in understanding mathematical reasoning, and, contrary to prevalent notions of moral education, connects reason with care, thus emphasizing the intimate connection between emotion and reason and challenging the dominant perception of the two as oppositional.

Gender and Educational Achievement

Gender inequalities in education – in terms of systematic variations in access to educational institutions, in competencies, school marks, and educational certificates along the axis of gender – have tremendously changed over the course of the 20th century. Although this does not apply to all stages and areas of the educational career, it is particularly obvious looking at upper secondary education. Before the major boost of educational expansion in the 1960s, women’s participation in upper secondary general education, and their chances to successfully finish this educational pathway, have been lower than men’s. However, towards the end of the 20th century, women were outperforming men in many European countries and beyond. The international contributions to this book attempt to shed light on the mechanisms behind gender inequalities and the changes made to reduce this inequality. Topics explored by the contributors include gender in science education in the UK; women’s education in Luxembourg in the 19th and 20th century; the ‘gender gap’ debates and their rhetoric in the UK and Finland; sociological perspectives on the gender-equality discourse in Finland; changing gender differences in West Germany in the 20th century; the interplay of subjective well-being and educational attainment in Switzerland; and a psychological perspective on gender identities, gender-related perceptions, students’ motivation, intelligence, personality, and the interaction between student and teacher gender. This book was originally published as a special issue of Educational Research.

The Death and Life of the Great American School System

A passionate plea to preserve and renew public education, The Death and Life of the Great American School System is a radical change of heart from one of America’s best-known education experts. Diane Ravitch—former assistant secretary of education and a leader in the drive to create a national curriculum—examines her career in education reform and repudiates positions that she once staunchly advocated. Drawing on over forty years of research and experience, Ravitch critiques today’s most popular ideas for restructuring schools, including privatization, standardized testing, punitive accountability, and the feckless multiplication of charter schools. She shows conclusively why the business model is not an appropriate way to improve schools. Using examples from major cities like New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, and San Diego, Ravitch makes the case that public education today is in peril. Ravitch includes clear prescriptions for improving America’s schools: leave decisions about schools to educators, not politicians or businessmen devise a truly national curriculum that sets out what children in every grade should be learning expect charter schools to educate the kids who need help the most, not to compete with public schools pay teachers a fair wage for their work, not “merit pay” based on deeply flawed and unreliable test scores encourage family involvement in education from an early age The Death and Life of the Great American School System is more than just an analysis of the state of play of the American education system. It is a must-read for any stakeholder in the future of American schooling.
