The Use Of Argumentation In Socio-Scientific Issues: Enhancing Evolutionary Biology Instruction, Heath R. Marchand 2015 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

The Use Of Argumentation In Socio-Scientific Issues: Enhancing Evolutionary Biology Instruction, Heath R. Marchand

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

With the adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), further emphasis in science education is being placed on preparing students to become more informed voters regarding social, ethical, economic and political topics that affect contemporary society. Parallel to this shift is a stronger emphasis on integrating evolutionary theory as a unifying concept in the biological sciences. Given that evolution is one of the aforementioned topics commonly discussed and debated about in social and political arenas, ensuring that instruction provides students from all backgrounds a comprehensive understanding of its principals is becoming increasingly important in contemporary science education. Chapter II ...

Syllable Circles is an interactive visualization representing prominence as a feature in short phrases or multi-syllable words. They were designed for Computer Aided Pronunciation Teaching as a part of English Language Teaching. This study explores the question of if and how interactive visualizations can affect English Language Learners’ awareness of prominence, or stress, in English pronunciation. The study followed seven learners and three teachers. Think-aloud protocols, notes from direct observation and interviews of two groups allowed for six streams of data. It was found that interactive visualizations of syllable circles facilitate noticing prominence. Learners and teachers believed interactive visualizations were ...


The Italian Immigrants’ Assimilation Into American Culture And The Subsequent Impact On Food, Language And Last Names, Joseph S. Pechie 2015 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

The Italian Immigrants’ Assimilation Into American Culture And The Subsequent Impact On Food, Language And Last Names, Joseph S. Pechie

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

The objective of this study is to examine the assimilation process of first, second, and third, generation Italian-Americans had on three facets of their culture’s everyday life, specifically: food, language, and last names. As Italians immigrated and assimilated into America, so did their culture and native traditions. Over time, the Italian culture has turned into a staple of American life and can be seen integrated into communities across the United States. A culture originally the subject of mockery, ridicule, and discrimination, the Italian culture endured decades, and generations, of change to become praised and appreciated. Although aspects of all ...

Applying Cooperative Learning To The New York State Living Environment Curriculum, James R. Franklin 2015 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Applying Cooperative Learning To The New York State Living Environment Curriculum, James R. Franklin

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

According to the National Education Association, students need to be prepared to be contributing members in global society (2012). Therefore, students need to learn how to collaborate and communicate with peers in a group. So far, competition has been prevalent in the academics of the United States (Shindler, 2009). Cooperative learning provides a teaching approach based on group success. Furthermore, there is a plethora of benefits from the use of cooperative learning in the science classroom. It promotes psychological health and high academic achievement (Johnson, Johnson & Roseth, 2010; Mesch, Johnson and Johnson, 2001). Cooperative learning is also a good approach for student ...


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.

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 ...


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 ...

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 Impact Of Leadership Style On Massachusetts Teachers' Cognitive, Emotional, And Intentional Response To Mandated Curriculum Change, Jennifer Devlin 2015 Northeastern University

The Impact Of Leadership Style On Massachusetts Teachers' Cognitive, Emotional, And Intentional Response To Mandated Curriculum Change, Jennifer Devlin

Education Doctoral Theses

Massachusetts curriculum frameworks in English/Language arts (ELA) aligned to the Common Core State Standards were issued in 2011 and full implementation is expected for the 2014-2015 school year. Teachers have been tasked with aligning their curriculum such that their lessons and units will prepare their students for state assessments aligned with the new frameworks. This study utilized a casual-comparative ex post facto design to examine, through the lens of Piderit's (2000) multidimensional response to change in conjunction with Chin and Benne's (1961) leadership strategies of planned change, the extent to which a teachers' perceptions of leadership style ...


An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis Of English-As-A-Second-Language (Esl) Teachers’ Motivational Beliefs In Developing Different Pedagogical Starategies, Ho Ying Chung 2015 Northeastern University

An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis Of English-As-A-Second-Language (Esl) Teachers’ Motivational Beliefs In Developing Different Pedagogical Starategies, Ho Ying Chung

Education Doctoral Theses

Motivated teachers affect not only their own teaching quality and job satisfaction, but also their students' motivation and learning outcomes, and institutional culture and development. One self-financed tertiary college in Hong Kong has also begun to consider the significance of teacher motivation and revised its appraisal criteria to include evaluating teacher motivation. However, as of yet, the college has not developed programs, classes, or seminars designed to improve teacher motivation. Hence, teacher motivation, and the different ways to improve and assess it, has become an important consideration for higher education institutions like the research site. This study employed an interpretive ...


Role Conflict And Role Ambiguity As Predictors Of Burnout In Special And General Education Co-Teachers, Cassandra L. Moss 2015 Walden University

Role Conflict And Role Ambiguity As Predictors Of Burnout In Special And General Education Co-Teachers, Cassandra L. Moss

Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Since the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act of 2004, special and general educators teach together in many classrooms. Co-teachers are subject to a variety of stressors, including role challenges for teachers who are accustomed to working independently. Research has shown that role ambiguity and role conflict are associated with burnout among special and general educators. However, no prior study has examined whether these role factors contribute to burnout among special and general educators in co-teaching roles. This study was based upon role stress theory in relation to the constructs of burnout. The sample included 72 special educators and 73 ...
