Unwanted Sexual Contact: Students With Autism And Other Disabilities At Greater Risk, Kirsten R. Brown, Edlyn V. Pena, Susan R. Rankin 2016 California Lutheran University

Unwanted Sexual Contact: Students With Autism And Other Disabilities At Greater Risk, Kirsten R. Brown, Edlyn V. Pena, Susan R. Rankin

Kirsten R. Brown, Ph.D.

The limited literature on sexual assault and unwanted sexual contact indicates that students with disabilities, and specifically students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), are an at risk population. This study uses data from a multi-institution climate assessment to examine the prevalence of unwanted sexual contact. Findings indicate that students with non-ASD disabilities and students with ASD were twice as likely to report unwanted sexual contact, than their non-disabled peers were. Women students with ASD are particularly at risk. Implications for postsecondary institutions, recommendations for student affairs professionals, and areas for future research are discussed.

The Impact Of Teacher-Lead Professional Development Programs On The Self-Efficacy Of Veteran Teachers, Seth Powers, Theodore Kaniuka, Brian Phillips, Beverlyn Cain 2016 Moore County Schools, North Carolina

The Impact Of Teacher-Lead Professional Development Programs On The Self-Efficacy Of Veteran Teachers, Seth Powers, Theodore Kaniuka, Brian Phillips, Beverlyn Cain

Journal of Research Initiatives

This study examined the impact of a teacher-lead professional development program based on the Instructional Talk-Through (ITT) model, created to address the unique needs of high-performing veteran teachers. Focusing on the professional development of veteran teachers is not a regular occurrence in schools and it is our opinion that these teachers possess a wealth of knowledge that heretofore has not been utilized to improve their overall skill set. The program was designed to capitalize on peer coaching, professional learning communities, classroom observation, and experiential knowledge while incorporating the unique strengths and abilities of these teachers in a collaborative environment.

In this study, various strategies were implemented to help increase levels of engagement. Parents were asked to track the amount of time they spent working with their child at home on school related activities. Activities and ideas were sent home to generate ...

"Let Me Tell You What I See" Creating A Culturally Relevant Arts Based Education Through The Use Of Photography And Storytelling, William Tran

Master's Projects

There are many constructs that can hinder the ability of students of color to succeed in a classroom environment. Factors such as the construct of whiteness, microaggressions, the banking method, as well as cuts in arts based classes create a learning environment where oppression occurs on multiple levels. The construct of whiteness creates an environment in which only the ideas, values, lived experiences, and knowledge of whites are considered valid. Microaggressions uphold the construct of whiteness by insulting and invalidating any ideas, values, lived experiences, languages, and knowledge that are outside the construct of whiteness. The constructs of whiteness as ...

Quality management is a systematic guide for organ transplantation that allows ...
