From the Ivory Tower to the Schoolhouse: How Scholarship Becomes Common Knowledge in Education
In From the Ivory Tower to the Schoolhouse, education historian Jack Schneider seeks to answer this familiar and vexing question by turning it on its head. He looks at four well-known ideas that emerged from the world of scholarship - Bloom's taxonomy, multiple intelligences, the project method, and Direct Instruction - and asks what we can learn from their success in influencing teachers.
Schneider identifies four key factors that help bridge the gap between research and practise: perceived significance, philosophical compatibility, occupational realism, and transportability. Through the examination of counterexamples - similar ideas of equal promise that lacked these four qualities and did not translate into practise - Schneider shows the complexity of the relationship between theory and practise in education and suggests how that tenuous connection might be strengthened to help innovations and new insights gain traction in our schools.
