Segall, Avner, Ed.; Heilman, Elizabeth E., Ed.; Cherryholmes, Cleo H., Ed. (2006). Social Studies–The Next Generation: Re-Searching in the Postmodern. Counterpoints, Studies in the Postmodern Theory of Education Volume 272, Peter Lang New York. This book broadens the imagination within social studies education by highlighting current, cutting-edge scholarship incorporating critical discourses. Drawing on postmodern, poststructural, postcolonial, and feminist theories often borrowed from cultural studies, curriculum theory, critical geography, women's studies, and queer studies, the scholars contributing to this volume ask new questions about social studies, use different methodologies to study the field, and report findings with new forms of textualization. This book is dialogic and even conversational, ending with provocative responses from established social studies scholars and the editors and disturbs the given and the taken for granted in social studies research.

Ascione, Frank R.; Burchard, John D. (1971). Effects of Surveillance and Punishment on the Cheating Behavior of Two Delinquent Retardates. Through an experimental analysis, this study demonstrates characteristics of both observer-produced and punishment-produced suppression of cheating behavior. The research procedure, designed to eliminate the interpretative difficulties of prior, comparable research, is fully elaborated. Two delinquent, retarded, adolescent boys served as subjects. Results indicate that both surveillance and punishment decrease the rate of cheating; however, while punishment produced more longlasting suppression, it also resulted in a disruption of the subjects' performance, reflected in decreased accuracy and bursts of responding, which surveillance did not produce. Implications are discussed.   [More]  Descriptors: Behavior, Behavior Change, Behavior Problems, Cheating

Totterdell, Michael; Jones, Cath; Bubb, Sara; Heilbronn, Ruth (2002). The Induction of Newly Qualified Teachers: Policy into Practice. This paper discusses findings from a research project that examined a new policy initiative–the induction of newly qualified teachers in England. The project studied the impact of a uniform statutory directive across a large school system with hitherto heterogeneous induction arrangements. The evaluation addressed the first 2 years of the implementation and early outcomes of the induction policy, outlining distinctive features, implementation in practice, and problems and successes. After outlining the historical context, the paper discusses how this transitional period is being supported and how it is meeting its objectives. It analyzes continuities and discontinuities of a policy that combines a strong central regulation with a strategy to raise standards in teaching and learning through site-based support and assessment of new teachers. The paper draws parallels with the United States' largest formal induction program, the California Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment Program. Finally, it summarizes challenges facing both systems in relation to entitlement and high quality induction, proposing that these are not likely to be met merely by investing in additional resources and more vigorous surveillance of the system and recommending more adequate conceptualization of early professional development that seeks to reclaim and extend professional accountability.

Strang, Kirk D. (2002). Technology in Public Education: What Will the Quest for Fairness and Efficiency Do to Individual Interests and Rights?. This paper–part of a collection of 54 papers from the 48th annual conference of the Education Law Association held in November 2002–is an outline of a presentation on monitoring the activities of students and school personnel. The dilemma, according to this paper, is that public schools are obliged to prevent persons under their supervision from causing harm to others. Yet satisfying such responsibilities increasingly requires more active, and sometimes intrusive, means of supervising and monitoring the activities of students and school personnel. The first section of the outline describes the nature of the dilemma. The next section examines events and factors that may influence public perceptions of schools responsibilities. The next section discusses legal duties that can encourage heightened supervision and monitoring. The next section examines relevant legal authority and includes analyses of litigation involving employee polygraph protection and privacy rights and technology. The next section presents negligence theories that may affect schools use of monitoring technology. The final section discusses the use of technology to monitor student and employee activities, touching upon monitoring of email and Internet usage, video surveillance cameras, and metal detectors.
