A total sample of 222 principals and 765 mentors completed two separate online, anonymous questionnaires assessing their perceptions of these aspects. Results show that principals and mentors differ in their perceived responsibilities concerning mentor selection, task responsibilities, and induction success attributes. They coincide on mentor selection criteria and their involvement in induction. Today’s complex, multifaceted induction environments require a reexamination of the principals’ and mentors’ shared responsibilities in the preparation of beginning teachers. The concept of shared responsibilities is discussed.</p> Nitza Schwabsky Judy Goldenberg Orna Schatz Oppenheimer Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 5 26 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-1 Effective Organizational Culture of Family Firms –the Perspective of Future Successors: a Qualitative Study <p>Family is the source of trust, loyalty and sense of belonging based on relations which are also the core of business. While running a business by family seems a logical thing to do, a double role played by family members may impede company’s functioning. The present paper aims at exploring the meaning making of the employees who are future successors with regards to organizational culture characteristics associated with effective business performance of family firms. 32 future successors took part in the study. Semi-structured interviews were analyzed through Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. The findings comprised following categories: trust, sense of “we,” entrepreneurial upbringing, and immediacy in communication which may comprise a model explicating complex organizational culture of family businesses. The results provided extensive future research directions into the field of family business.</p> Klaudia Martynowska Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 27 35 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-2 The Vision of Love Between a Man and a Woman in the “Song Of Songs.” Psychological and Pedagogical Implications <p>The love presented in the biblical Song of Songs, which unites a man (the bridegroom) and a&nbsp;woman (the bride), is an ideal situation free of negative factors that distort or even delete this relationship. It occurs between them as the realization of the basic vocation which they received at the time of their creation as “man and woman.” That is why this love is a challenge that at the same time brings them happiness; it gives their lives deepest meaning, making them fully shine with joy. The bridegroom and the bride experience love in three dimensions: enchantment (falling in love), <em>eros</em> and <em>agape</em>. The author of the article takes from the Song of Songs everything that shows the importance of each of these spheres with their their supernatural source and orientation. He is aware that these types of love interpenetrate and gradually overlap each other. They are organically integrated with each other. In each of them, the proper dynamics and responsible components appear, which concern the bodily and spiritual functions of the bridegroom and bride. By discovering these, we can see what can actually protect spousal and marital love in modern times from its greatest threats.</p> Henryk Witczyk Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 37 57 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-3 Pastoral-Theological Foundations of the Sacramental Catechesis of People with Intellectual Disabilities <p>Education in faith is an inalienable right of every human being, including people with intellectual disabilities. It is implemented with the cooperation of three educational environments: family, school and parish. Its integral element is the sacramental catechesis preparing for the sacraments of penance and reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. This kind of ministry of proclaiming the Word of God to people with intellectual disabilities results not only from the necessity for the baptized persons with intellectual disabilities to accept the sacraments of Christian initiation and the sacrament of penance and reconciliation, but above all from the canons’ interpretation of the canonical code, theological opinion and catechetical and pedagogical practice.</p> Paweł Nycz Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 59 72 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-4 Research with Persons with Intellectual Disability. Methodological and Ethical Questions <p>The article analyzes selected methodological and ethical problems that may accompany research with persons with intellectual disabilities. The article has a review form. Issues such as errors appearing in self-report research and related difficulties that may be experienced by people with intellectual disabilities are discussed. The general methods of counteracting them are also presented. Some ethical issues in the field of research with the participation of representatives of this group were indicated, among others expressing informed consent, the way of recruiting respondents.</p> Monika Parchomiuk Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 73 95 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-5 The Fathering of a Deaf Child from the Perspective of the Ecosystem Paradigm <p>The article focuses on the theoretical approach to the review of literature on the subject of paternity of a deaf child from the perspective of the ecosystem paradigm. Understanding the nature of paternity requires analysis in the ecological paradigm (taking into account the impact of environmental factors: from micro- to macrosystem) and in the systemic paradigm in which it is important to know the ways and quality of interaction between family members and external social systems. The presented analysis of research and scientific reflection allows us to see the need for father’s participation in the development of the psychosocial deaf child in the course of life. In addition, in the context of the considerations taken up, one can accept the thesis that paternity is not only something natural for a person functioning in a social group, but also an expression of understanding the needs of all family members.</p> Katarzyna Plutecka Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 97 109 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-6 Drawings Of The Blind From Birth And Late Blind People. A Comparative Study <p>The results of the research presented in the article concern the visions of reality and its various phenomena in drawings of completely blind people (congenitally) and late blind people. The focus of my analysis was drawing skills and their development.</p> <p>The research concerned convex drawings on foil for blind people. I conducted a qualitative analysis of the drawings. The main tool for my analysis was the model of the structure of an artistic piece taking into account the work’s content, form and creativity. All components of the creative process were analysed with reference to the subsequent stages of drawing development in accordance with the classification of the child’s artistic development within intellectual norm, as indicated by S. Szuman, V. Lowenfeld, W. Brittain and G.H. Luquet.</p> Ewa Niestorowicz Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 111 126 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-7 Sensory Integration in Poland as a New Area of Practice and Theory in Social Sciences <p>The subject of this article is one of the most-recent additions to the field of practice and research conducted on the borderline between social sciences—psychology, pedagogy—and medicine—sensory integration. The purpose of this article is to describe the basic elements defining sensory integration: history, definitions, and theoretical and methodological assumptions. The nature of this article is therefore introductory, referential, and metatheoretical. The need for research in this field is justified by the unclear cognitive status of sensory integration, combined with the great popularity of this sphere of therapeutic practice and knowledge.</p> Piotr Magier Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 127 145 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-8 The Reversal of the Flynn Effect and Its Reflection in the Educational Arena: Data Comparison and Possible Directions for Future Research and Action <p>For years indicators of cognitive abilities and academic competencies suggested that humans’ ability to effective cope with their environment is improving (dubbed the Flynn effect). Recent evidence suggests that this trend may be turning. This study explores data obtained from the Program for International Student Assessment for an intentional sample of 9 countries over the last 6 years and suggests that indeed there is evidence of substantial decrease in students competencies and literacy in Language (writing) and Math beyond possible economical, and national factors. The relevance of the results to education and its potential implications are discussed.</p> Leehu Zysberg Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 147 157 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-9 Professional Counseling for People 50+ with Special Consideration of the Age Management in the Human Resource (Hr) <p>Career guidance for older workers is today not only an essential part of lifelong learning and an instrument of active labour market policy in EU countries, but also of AGE management in enterprises. It is important to orientate oneself towards scientific models of the life phases, which do not only refer to the professional or company area. Therefore, holistic counselling approaches that also take into account the quality of life of working people are of great importance. In our view, the life phases and role concepts D. Super and their further development through approaches of “life design” M. Savickas et al. are suitable for methodical design. In this article, concrete proposals for age-appropriate human resource management are also made.</p> Bernd-Joachim Ertelt Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 159 190 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-10 Arkadiusz Wąsiński, Self-creation of childless spouses for multidimensional adoptive parenthood, Łódź: Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Łódzkiego 2018 Dorota Kornas-Biela Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 191 196 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-11 Małgorzata Kaliszewska, Barbara Klasińska (red.), Hermeneutic competences in academic theory and practice, Kielce: Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Jana Kochanowskiego 2018 Jacek Siewiora Copyright (c) 2019 Roczniki Pedagogiczne 2020-01-16 2020-01-16 197 199 10.18290/rped.2019.11.3-12 Alina Rynio, Education towards responsibility.
