Developing Teachers and Developing Schools in Changing Contexts
Edited by John Chi-kin Lee & Ling-po Shiu

About the book

More than ever, schools are regarded as a learning community in which its leaders, and therefore the school’s primary agents of change, are expected to stay abreast of the latest developments in education and instruction. This book provides important insights for improving professional development activities, school-university partnerships and networks, educational management, as well as teaching and learning in schools and colleges. It builds on research conducted in the 1990s, during which the pursuit of school improvement and skill development first converged.

尋找課程與教學的知識基礎
黃顯華 編

內容簡介

香港的中小學中文科教育經常為社會人士所詬病:一方面是由於課程設計只是著重教導和背誦課文及有關資料,而忽視培育學生聽說讀寫的能力;另一方面,教師在教學過程中未能充分掌握學生學習中文和教授中文科課程的要訣。

本書編者認為要改善現時香港中小學中文科的課程與教學的流弊,必須要找出問題的根源,才可對症下藥。因此,本書將過往與中文科有關的研究文獻作系統的整理,分門別類,讓讀者了解中小學中文科課程的發展。此外,本書亦進行了大量的問卷調查,探討中文科教師的進修及教學情況、中小學教科書的內容,以及比較中港台三地中文科語文課程。本書對於從事中文科教育的人士,十分有參考價值。

Research and Endeavours in Moral & Civic Education
Edited by Leslie Nai-kwai Lo and Man Si-wai

About the book

Moral and civic education crystallizes many important and controversial themes in education across disciplines. It is closely related to values debates at both the conceptual and practical levels. This volume contains original studies which run the gamut of interests from modernism to postmodernism, from global perspective to cultural relativity, and from ideological to institutional aspects of moral and civic education.

The articles presented in this volume are a timely contribution to our understanding of moral and civic education. While the topics of interests and scope of investigation may vary from one article to the next, the diversity of the authors' cultural and social backgrounds should afford insights into the various dimensions of moral and civic education. Together, they should provide useful information about the dynamics of this rich and complex field of educational endeavors.
