Cap Writing: A Novel Technology Approach To Literacy With Reluctant Writers, Joy Barnes-Johnson 2015 University of Wyoming

Cap Writing: A Novel Technology Approach To Literacy With Reluctant Writers, Joy Barnes-Johnson

Joy Barnes-Johnson

CAP writing is a tiered approach to the writing process. Developed in part to address the needs of reluctant writers, it acknowledges learning style preferences that are oral in nature and attentive to cultural norms and traditions that are based in spoken word. CAP is a celebration of self in the process of writing. Evolving from a social capital—traditional—view of writing, this cultural capital perspective on writing is strengthened by apertures between micro-level, meso-level and macro-level being.

Critical Pedagogy In Classroom Discourse, Loukia K. Sarroub, Sabrina Quadros 2015 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Critical Pedagogy In Classroom Discourse, Loukia K. Sarroub, Sabrina Quadros

Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

The classroom is a unique discursive space for the enactment of critical pedagogy. In some ways, all classroom discourse is critical because it is inherently political, and at the heart of critical pedagogy is an implicit understanding that power is negotiated daily by teachers and students. Historically, critical pedagogy is rooted in schools of thought that have emphasized the individual and the self in relation and in contrast to society, sociocultural and ideological forces, and economic factors and social progress. In addressing conceptualizations in Orthodox Marxism (with Karl Marx, Max Weber, and Emile Durkheim) in the mid-19th century and the ...


Horace Bushnell: Advocate Of Progressive Orthodoxy And Christian Nurture, Samuel J. Smith, Elmer L. Towns 2015 Liberty University

Horace Bushnell: Advocate Of Progressive Orthodoxy And Christian Nurture, Samuel J. Smith, Elmer L. Towns

Samuel J. Smith

Disparaged by his critics as a liberal, Calvinist, mystic, and heretic, Horace Bushnell’s theology—particularly his notion of Christian nurture—has prevailed as a significantly influential model for religious education. His legacy reveals one who attempted to bridge the divides of his time, including the chasm between Orthodox Calvinism and Unitarianism. Though many were confused by his language theory and mediating stance on doctrinal issues, his principles of Christian nurture clearly served as a pilot light that ignited the flame of the twentieth-century religious education movement.


The Business Of Learning To Teach: A Critical Metaphor Analysis Of One Teacher's Journey, Lauren Gatti, Theresa Catalano 2015 University of Nebraska, Lincoln

The Business Of Learning To Teach: A Critical Metaphor Analysis Of One Teacher's Journey, Lauren Gatti, Theresa Catalano

Lauren Gatti

This article analyzes the learning to teach process of one novice teacher, Rachael, enrolled in an Urban Teacher Residency (UTR) in Harbor City, United States. Building on Loh and Hu's (2014) scholarship on neoliberalism and novice teachers, we employ Critical Metaphor Analysis (CMA) to make visible the ways in which Rachael contends with conflicting frames of learning to teach--TEACHING IS A JOURNEY vs. TEACHING IS A BUSINESS--within her program. Rachael encounters three primary obstacles: programmatic incompatibility, pedagogical paralysis, and, ultimately, programmatic abandonment. The discussion explores the potential consequences of learning to teach in neoliberal contexts.


Early Childhood Math Coaching: Relationships And Strategies, Cilla Williams Bercovici 2015 Northeastern University

Early Childhood Math Coaching: Relationships And Strategies, Cilla Williams Bercovici

Education Doctoral Theses

Falling scores in American student achievement in mathematics has prompted renewed interest in elementary math instruction. By their own admission, elementary school teachers, however, are not always comfortable teaching math. On-site math coaches/specialists can help teachers implement best practices and new standards. Since teachers' sense of efficacy has been shown to affect their instructional practices and, in turn, their students' math achievement, coaches' support of such efficacy is essential. This qualitative case study explored the relationships between elementary math coaches and early childhood educators. The goal was to identify the strategies most effective in developing and supporting teachers' sense ...

Take Me Under Your Wing: An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis Of The Lived Experiences Of Three New Principals In Small High Schools, John Joseph Buckey

Education Doctoral Theses

Currently in the research literature there exists a dearth of qualitative research regarding the lived experiences of new principals in small schools with mentoring. This interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) study sought to understand better the experiences with mentoring of new administrators, defined as being in their first three years, in small schools, defined as having a student population of fewer than 500 students. Three new principals were identified through criterion sampling. Each participated in three semi-structured interviews in order to understand their lived experiences with mentoring as they transitioned into and experienced the principalship in their first years. These lived ...


The Drop Out Decisions Of Latino College Students, Dennis Camacho 2015 Northeastern University

The Drop Out Decisions Of Latino College Students, Dennis Camacho

Education Doctoral Theses

Scholars in the field of higher education administration have researched the factors that mold the collegiate experience for Latino college students, specifically how they affect retention at campuses in the midwest, southwest and west coast regions of the United States. However, there is limited research on this topic in the northeast region of the United States. This phenomenological, qualitative study supplements current research by providing findings on the drop out decision considerations of Latino former college students who attended a college or university in the northeast region of the United States and were members of Latino Greek lettered organizations. Tinto ...

Five separate participant group analyses were conducted using binary logistic regression modelling. The participant data examined in this study, which represents a total population sample, pertained to 3,515 enlisted members of the New Jersey State Police considered for promotion during one, or both, of the ...


Reconstruction Delayed: How Presidents And The Southern Civil War Prolonged The End Of Reconstruction, Jason V. Shelton 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Reconstruction Delayed: How Presidents And The Southern Civil War Prolonged The End Of Reconstruction, Jason V. Shelton

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

Reconstruction is one of the most controversial periods in American history. The decade which followed the conclusion of the American Civil War featured debates in the North and extreme violence in the South. The major argument was over what the next steps would be in terms of reuniting the nation after a bloody conflict pitting brother against brother. Historians have confined the era into a twelve year period lasting from 1865 to 1876. However, the goals of Reconstruction were not achieved until well after the election of 1876, and even in 2014, there is still work to be done when ...


An Algebra Unit On Quadratics For Teachers With Students With Ebd, Christopher Williams 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

An Algebra Unit On Quadratics For Teachers With Students With Ebd, Christopher Williams

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

The number of students identified as having an emotional and behavioral disorder (EBD) are increasing rapidly and still underreported. These students often have significant behavioral, social and academic deficits that pose challenges within and outside the school setting and are among some of the most difficult students to teach with the bleakest post-school success or employment rates. Research reveals several effective procedures for conducting interventions to increase performance, participation and engagement and in lowering the number of inappropriate behavior occurrences within the classroom. Based on these findings, an algebra unit plan on quadratics has been developed to assist and direct ...
