Designing the new American university

June 15, 2015
Crow, Michael M. author.
Baltimore, Maryland : Johns Hopkins University Press, 2015.
xiii, 344 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
Introduction : solving for X with U -- American research universities at a fork in the road -- The gold standard in American higher education -- The varieties of academic tradition -- Discovery, creativity, and innovation -- Designing knowledge enterprises -- A pragmatic approach to innovation and sustainability -- Designing a new American university at the frontier -- Conclusion : toward more new American universities.
"In this book, Michael Crow will ignite a national discussion on what the new American research university should look like. This new model is one that embraces students with a wide range of backgrounds and abilities while giving elite public schools a run for their research money. Crow proposed his idea--one that would fundamentally redesign the public research university--ten years ago when he became president of Arizona State University and now he has a decade of experience to support his plan. Designing the New American University offers a comprehensive critique of the contemporary American research university and spells out how these critically important institutions can reinvent themselves. The manuscript recommends measures to foster institutional evolution across various interrelated dimensions, represented by the model of the New American University--an egalitarian institution committed to academic excellence, inclusiveness to a broad demographic, and maximum societal impact. The model is evolutionary and dynamic and its "design aspirations" are interrelated and interdependent. The manuscript thus introduces readers to the imperative significance of institutional design, which is not merely adventitious to knowledge enterprises"-- Provided by publisher.

Nationally recognized scholar and author Dick Allington once again delivers a concise and balanced introduction to reading remediation and intervention programs, showing teachers how to use a variety of best practices with children who are struggling readers in order to transform them into proficient readers. This new edition includes the latest findings on reading achievement and instruction, reading volume as it relates to reading proficiency, reader-text match, fluency development, comprehension strategies, and instruction for struggling readers. Its emphasis is on explaining what the research says, why it works, and how to use this information to provide intensive, expert reading instruction for all children. The continued focus on helping teachers design reading remediation and intervention programs around well-established reality and research-based components is framed within the confines of the No Child Left Behind Act. Paired with Dick's book What Really Matters in Response to Intervention, educators have the best tools for helping every student learn to love reading.
