Paulston, Christina Bratt, Ed.; Peckham, Donald, Ed. (1998). Linguistic Minorities in Central and Eastern Europe. Multilingual Matters 109. This collection aims to provide an introductory study of linguistic minorities in Central and Eastern Europe, taking into account historical development, present situation, language maintenance and shifts, as well as language and educational policies of the different countries in the area. The introduction (by Christina Bratt Paulston) discusses a theoretical framework of the contextual situations of language maintenance and shift in which linguistic minorities and bilingualism are found. Each chapter stands alone, but trends and generalizations emerge throughout the book with possibilities for model building and theory testing. Chapters include: "Linguistic Minorities in Austria" (Rudolf de Cillia, Florian Menz, Wolfgang U. Dressler, and Petra Cech); "Linguistic Minorities in the Balkans (Albania, Greece, and the Successor States of the former Yugoslavia)" (Hugh Poulton); "Ethnicity and the Nation: The Bulgarian Dilemma" (Bonka Boneva); "Linguistic Minorities in the Caucasus" (Sergei Arutiunov); "Linguistic Communities in the Czech Republic" (J.

United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Berlin (Germany). (1998). Cooperation with the World of Work in Technical and Vocational Education: A. The Policy Level–Studies from Hungary, Romania, and Sweden and B– The Institution Level–A Study from the Russian Federation. This document contains a synthesis paper and four case studies of cooperation with the world of work in vocational and technical education (VTE) in Hungary, Romania, Russia, and Sweden. "Synthesis" (R. Barry Hobart) considers the common social and economic variables affecting VTE in the four study countries. The three case studies focusing on cooperation at the policy level are as follows: "The Policy Level: Hungary" (Andras Benedek); "The Policy Level: Romania" (Cesar Birzea, Mihaela Jigau, Florentina Anghel); and "The Policy Level: Sweden" (Nils Friberg, Marianne Lindberg). Among the topics discussed in those papers are the following: socioeconomic transitions during the past decade; new actors and priorities; changes in legislation; labor market training and continuing vocational education; and cooperation between enterprises and professional training institutions. The fourth case study, "The Institution Level: The Russian Federation" (Institute for Development of Vocational Education of the Russian Federation), examines the following: primary factors capable of affecting cooperation among professional training and education establishments and enterprises; instruments of cooperation; barriers hampering cooperation; cooperation in training the unemployed and jobless population; and inductive measures for promoting cooperation between educational institutions and enterprises at the level of training.   [More]  Descriptors: Articulation (Education), Case Studies, Comparative Analysis, Cooperative Planning

Jitendra, Asha; Nolet, Victor; Gomez, Ophelia; Xin, Yan Ping (1999). An Analysis of Four Middle School Geography Textbooks: Meeting the Needs of Students with Learning Problems. A study examined geography texts to evaluate their adequacy for meeting the diverse needs of students and to recommend modifications that will address specific deficits. Four geography textbooks were selected based on consultations with publishers, teachers, and school administrators to be representative of geography textbooks adopted in the United States. One chapter from each text that related to China, India, Philippines, Russia, and West Indies was selected and one lesson from each chapter was scrutinized. Evaluation forms were designed, definitional criteria were devised for evaluating geography instruction in each textbook, and four education doctoral students were trained to read and evaluate the texts using the form. Only one text included all the instructional elements examined. None of the instructional elements was present in all the lessons examined. It seems clear that these texts would pose a significant challenge for students who enter middle school with reading skills below grade level or for students who speak English as a second language. Although the textbooks are intended for middle school students, readability is around tenth-grade level. Only one text provided specific suggestions for accommodating diverse learners. Textbooks varied in the extent to which they prompted students to engage in complex thinking associated with geography, a domain in which many problems are ill-structured. Texts were dense with facts but contained few concepts or principles, and students were asked to reiterate or summarize information more often than they were asked to illustrate, predict, evaluate, or apply information. Textbooks analyzed provided little support for teaching complex thinking or employing effective teaching strategies. Contains 4 tables of data and 12 references.   [More]  Descriptors: Content Analysis, Geography, Geography Instruction, Instructional Effectiveness

Slivina, Natalia A.; Krivosheev, Anatoly O.; Fomin, Sergey S. (1998). Computer Tutorial "Higher Mathematics" for Engineering Specialties. This paper presents a CD-ROM computer tutorial titled "Higher Mathematics," that contains 17 educational mathematical programs and is intended for use in Russian university engineering education. The first section introduces the courseware climate in Russia and outlines problems with commercially available universal mathematical packages. The second section describes the structure and properties of the courseware, including the following components: (1) MATRIX, a subject-oriented program that provides computer support to the study of linear algebra and analytical geometry; (2) FORMULA, a subject-oriented medium for solving problems in calculus and approximate calculations; (3) ODE (Ordinary Differential Equations), a program that helps in understanding qualitative aspects of the theory of differential equations; (4) Numerical Integration; and (5) the courseware navigator. The potential to run the courseware package on the Internet as well as on a local network, and plans for future development are also discussed. Five figures illustrate the main dialog window of MATRIX, the graphic window of FORMULA, the graphic window of ODE, a screen in the package Numerical Integration, and a Navigator menu.   [More]  Descriptors: Computer Assisted Instruction, Computer Networks, Courseware, Distance Education
