Recreation as a Developmental Experience: Theory Practice Research: New Directions for Youth Development, Number 130
It's not all fun and games. A growing body of research suggests that recreation activities can be powerful development contexts when they are properly framed and intentionally designed. This volume highlights much of that research, and the articles that follow provide ample evidence that well-framed recreation activities and contexts can provide a range of positive developmental outcomes. Editors Lawrence R. Allen and Robert J. Barcelona draw on their own work in human and youth development and have assembled contributing authors who explore the important of meaningful recreation and leisure experiences in the lives of youth and the value of recreation from a developmental perspective. Chapters focus on the developmental potential of specific recreation contexts and settings and provide research and evidence-based strategies outlining the activities that best promote positive youth development. Finally, the volume demonstrates how recreation is being used to strengthen individual and community assets and its role as a contributor in addressing pressing social issues. This is the 130th volume of New Directions for Youth Development, the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series dedicated to bringing together everyone concerned with helping young people, including scholars, practitioners, and people from different disciplines and professions. The result is a unique resource presenting thoughtful, multi-faceted approaches to helping our youth develop into responsible, stable, well-rounded citizens.

The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 (9/11) caused Americans to realize that our sense of invincibility had been shattered. This paper will identify al-Qa'ida and Salafi-Jihadists as our enemy and will recommend new approaches to fighting terrorism. Colonel Brian Drinkwine will explore al-Qa'ida's organization, leaders, doctrine, and their radical ideologies. It is argued that the war we must fight is one against Islamist transnational actors who openly engage in terrorism or support terrorism. It will highlight that our current national and military strategies to combat terrorism are inadequate to take on an ideologically emboldened transnational foe. It is emphasized that we must refocus our efforts and prepare to fight a war of several generations (long war), and several initiatives will be recommended to include development of a cogent grand national strategy.

Managing Parent Partnerships: Maximizing Influence, Minimizing Interference, and Focusing on Student Success: New Directions for Student Services, Number 122
Helicopters suggest a range of images, from medical support and military action to traffic reporters and tourism. Unfortunately, in higher education helicopter evokes the image of parents who hover continuously and land when they perceive a need from their college student. Some administrators have even characterized aggressive parents as Black Hawk helicopters. This negative image of parental involvement can prevent college and university administrators from capitalizing on its opportunities. Federal financial policies, parental notification policies regarding alcohol use, the No Child Left Behind Act, and even college students themselves expect parents to be involved. Their experience in elementary and secondary education can make parents a valuable resource; however, administrators are often unsure how best to support the rights of students as adults and at the same time maximize the beneficial influence of parents. This volume examines the influence and impact of parental involvement on student development; the critical messages for parents to understand about their role within the university and with their student; the types of programs offered for parents, including parent associations and advisory boards; advocacy and crisis management; parent program offices and needs assessment; and legal aspects of parent outreach. This is the 122nd volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Services , an indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals. Each issue of New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.

Contemporary Financial Issues in Student Affairs: New Directions for Student Services, Number 103
Distinguished professor, John H. Schuh edits this critical look at the financial situation in higher education today. Contributors discuss seven specific issues concerning the financing of student affairs on contemporary college campuses and explore effective strategies student affairs professionals need to ensure that programs and services that serve students and other important stakeholders survive and thrive. Topics addressed include the differences in financing student affairs in public and in private institutions, as well as challenges in financing student unions and activities, health and counseling services, student housing and campus recreation. Examining contemporary problems in selected areas of student affairs finance, this volume is one of several in this series on managing resources in student affairs. Others addressing related topics include Issue 89, The Role Student Aid Plays in Enrollment Management; Issue 92, Leadership and Management Issues for a New Century; Issue 96, Developing External Partnerships for Cost Effective, Enhanced Services; and Issue 101, Planning and Achieving Successful Student Affairs Facilities Projects. As state governmental support for public institutions continues to erode, student affairs units operating in the current financial environment have to be nimble and creative to sustain their viability. Drawing from his own twenty seven year career as a student affairs practitioner and the contributions and research of leading student affairs professionals in the field, John Schuh provides an outstanding resource for student affairs professionals facing the serious financial challenges of today and tomorrow. This is the 103rd issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Student Services.

Educational Leadership and Michel Foucault
Drawing from the ideas of Michel Foucault, this book offers a critical examination of today's dominant discourse of educational leadership. Foucault's understanding of critique is as a `permanent' ethos in which humans explore the nature of their existence but at the same time query the limits imposed upon them, and probe opportunities for increasing freedom. This book outlines the key concepts in the work of Foucault, and demonstrates how his concepts of discourse, power/knowledge, and governmentality offer an understanding of how ideas of educational leadership and management have emerged, how they serve to establish a discipline, and how they construct individuals - pupils, teachers, and head teachers - in particular ideological ways. The discourse of educational leadership and management not only represents a specific means of `governing' education but also calls for the development of approved management and leadership skills and behaviours. The related focus on cultivating, valuing, and rewarding effective leaders is eminently suited to Foucauldian critique, which not only questions the basis for its assumptions and norms, but also examines the way in which the subjects of ELMA - today's educational professionals - are both constructed by the discourse and are called upon to shape themselves accordingly. Included in the book: - educational leadership as discourse - educational leadership as discipline - power and educational leadership - governmentality and educational leadership. By both applying theory and examining empirical exemplars, this volume offers a challenge to dominant leadership discourse and suggests alternative understandings of the field and approaches to practice. The book will be of value to researchers and postgraduate students with an interest in educational leadership, management and administration, as well as to practitioners in the school system.

A Guide to Authentic e-Learning
Part of the groundbreaking Connecting with e-Learning series, A Guide to Authentic e-Learning provides effective, working examples to engage learners with authentic tasks in online settings. As technology continues to open up possibilities for innovative and effective teaching and learning opportunities, students and teachers are no longer content to accept familiar classroom or lecture-based pedagogies that rely on information delivery and little else. Situated and constructivist theories advocate that learning is best achieved in circumstances resembling the real-life application of knowledge. While there are multiple learning design models that share similar foundations, authentic e-learning tasks go beyond process to become complex, sustained activities that draw on realistic situations to produce realistic outcomes. A Guide to Authentic e-Learning: develops the conceptual framework for authentic learning tasks in online environments provides practical guidance on design, implementation, and evaluation of authentic e-learning tasks includes case studies and examples of outcomes of using authentic e-learning tasks Written for teaching professionals in Higher Education who teach online, A Guide to Authentic e-Learning offers concrete guidelines and examples for developing and implementing authentic e-learning tasks in ways that challenge students to maximize their learning. This essential book provides effective, working examples to engages learners with authentic tasks in online learning settings.

Beyond the School Gates: Can Full Service and Extended Schools Overcome Disadvantage?
This book, for the first time ever, critically examines the role of full service and extended schools. The authors draw on their extensive international evaluations of this radical new phenomenon to ask: What do extended or full service schools hope to achieve, and why should services based on schools be any more effective than services operating from other community bases? What pattern of services and activities is most effective? What does extended schooling mean for children and families who are not highly disadvantaged, or for schools outside the most disadvantaged areas? How can schools lead extended services at the same time as doing their `day job' of teaching children? Why should schools be concerned with family and community issues? Beyond the advocacy of `extended provision', what real evidence is there that schools of this kind make a difference, and how can school leaders evaluate the impact of their work? This book will be of interest to anyone involved in extended and full service school provision, as a practitioner, policy-maker, or researcher.

Teaching Transformed: Achieving Excellence, Fairness, Inclusion, And Harmony
All school reformers are trying for better schooling; but all are not marching to the same drum. Four goals-- Excellence, Fairness, Inclusion and Harmony-- are emphasized by different groups. Are the four goals competing ideas of the good, so that national political debates must result in prioritizing, in winners and losers? Tharp, Estrada, Dalton, and Yamauchi demonstrate that the four goals can all be achieved, simultaneously and maximally, by classrooms of a new vision.All school reform has one final common pathway -- instructional activity. Whatever the specific reform, from policy or finance to teacher preparation, none will have any effect on student development except as it operates through the teaching-and-learning activities of classrooms. Teaching Transformed is a new vision for classrooms, based on consensus research findings and unified practice prescriptions, explained and justified by new developments in sociocultural theory, and clarified by an explicit five-phase developmental guide for achieving that transformation. In the spirit of Rousing Minds to Life, Teaching Transformed is both visionary and practical, both theoretical and data-driven, and determined to create effective education for all students. Professional educators, parents, policy makers, and any reader concerned with saving our schools will find this book necessary to understand our current plight, and to envision a realistic means of transformation.

Item Generation for Test Development
Since the mid-80s several laboratories around the world have been developing techniques for the operational use of tests derived from item-generation. According to the experts, the major thrust of test development in the next decade will be the harnessing of item generation technology to the production of computer developed tests. This is expected to revolutionize the way in which tests are constructed and delivered. This book is a compilation of the papers presented at a symposium held at ETS in Princeton, attended by the world's foremost experts in item-generation theory and practice. Its goal is to present the major applications of cognitive principles in the construction of ability, aptitude, and achievement tests. It is an intellectual contribution to test development that is unique, with great potential for changing the ways tests are generated. The intended market includes professional educators and psychologists interested in test generation.

Cognitive and Instructional Processes in History and the Social Sciences
This volume is a direct result of an international conference that brought together a number of scholars from Europe and the United States to discuss their ideas and research about cognitive and instructional processes in history and the social sciences. As such, it fills a major gap in the study of how people learn and reason in the context of particular subject matter domains and how instruction can be improved in order to facilitate better learning and reasoning. Previous cognitive work on subject matter learning has been focused primarily upon mathematics and physics; the present effort provides the first such venture examining the history and social science domains from a cognitive perspective. The different sections of the book cover topics related to comprehension, learning, and instruction of history and the social sciences, including: *the development of some social sciences concepts, *the teaching of social sciences -- problems and questions arising from this cognitive perspective of learning, *the comprehension and learning from historical texts, *how people and students understand historical causality and provide explanations of historical events, and *the deduction processes involved in reasoning about social sciences contents. This volume will be useful for primary and secondary school teachers and for cognitive and instructional researchers interested in problem solving and reasoning, text comprehension, domain-specific knowledge acquisition and concept development.

Women and Literacy: Local and Global Inquiries for a New Century
Path-breaking research on women and literacy in the past decade established conventions and advanced innovative methods that push the making of knowledge into new spheres of inquiry. Taking these accomplishments as a point of departure, this volume emphasizes the diversity-of approaches and subjects-that characterizes the next generation of research on women and literacy. It builds on and critiques scholarship in literacy studies, composition studies, rhetorical theory, gender studies, postcolonial theory, and cultural studies to open new venues for future research. Contributors discuss what literacy is-more precisely, what literacies are-but their strongest interest is in documenting and theorizing women's lived experience of these literacies, with particular attention to: the diversity of women's literacies within the U.S., including but not limited to the varying relations that exist among women, literacy, economic position, class, race, sexuality, and education; relations among women, literacy, and economic contexts in the U.S. and abroad, including but not limited to changes in women's private and domestic literacies, the evolution of technologies of literacy, and women's experience of the commodification of literacies; and emergent roles of women and literacy in a globally interdependent world. This broad, significant work is a must-read for researchers and graduate students across the fields of literacy studies, composition studies, rhetorical theory, and gender studies.

Self-determined Learning Theory: Construction, Verification, and Evaluation
This volume brings together four semi-autonomous bodies of research (choice, self-determination, self-regulation, and self-management) to form a new theory of self-engaged learning entitled, Self-Determined Learning Theory. This theory explains why and how students self-engage. It identifies the factors that give students the sense of control over their learning that is needed for sustained, adaptive, and ultimately successful learning. It begins by describing the characteristics of disengaged learners, then describes and illustrates self-determined learning theory within both normal and special populations. It then examines the theory's predictive value across several special population contexts and then concludes with a critique of the theory's credibility and worth. Divided into three sections--theory construction, theory verification, and theory evaluation--this volume is organized using the four steps of a previous book, Learning to Theorize: A Four Step Strategy. Step 1 defines a problem of not understanding something as discrepancy between what is known and not known about a circumstance. Step 2 searches for information and explanations to change the condition of not knowing into a condition of knowing. Step 3 evaluates the credibility and worth of the explanation constructed in Step 2. Step 4 adjusts existing beliefs so they are consistent with the new theory. Although aimed primarily at leaders in special education, it should also appeal to researchers and scholars in psychology, educational psychology, and school psychology who are interested in the applications of self-regulated learning theory--in this case to special populations.
