Teachers' Attitudes Towards Code Switching Within A Bilingual Classroom, Wendy N. Olmo-Castillo 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Teachers' Attitudes Towards Code Switching Within A Bilingual Classroom, Wendy N. Olmo-Castillo

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

Within the United States, the number of native Spanish speaking students entering our schools has increased as the years have passed (Alanis & Rodriguez, 2008). Once they are in the school system, these students are labeled as English Language Learners (ELLs) or Limited English Proficient (LEP) with each entering with varying levels of the English language as well as their native language, Spanish. As more of these students come in, the more students our schools need to accommodate for their linguistic and academic needs. Thus, the purpose of bilingual programs is to develop students' native language and develop their second language ...

Autoethnography And Teacher Education: Snapshot Stories Of Cultural Encounter, Maureen F. Legge 2014 Edith Cowan University

Autoethnography And Teacher Education: Snapshot Stories Of Cultural Encounter, Maureen F. Legge

Australian Journal of Teacher Education

In this paper I discuss how I framed and wrote an autoethnographic personal narrative of my lived experience as a New Zealand physical education teacher educator in the presence of two cultures, Māori and Pākehā. Central to my qualitative study was writing as a method of inquiry. Using this method I wrote a series of descriptive ‘snapshot stories’ derived from field experiences, over an 11 year period, that involved close and prolonged encounters with physical education teacher education (PETE) students in tertiary classrooms and 4 day marae stays. The storied accounts served as data for self-reflexivity about my role as ...


Educating English Language Learners In The Elementary Classroom, Elizabeth R. Wallace 2014 The College at Brockport: State University of New York

Educating English Language Learners In The Elementary Classroom, Elizabeth R. Wallace

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

According to the National Clearinghouse for English Language Acquisition [NCELA] (2013), English Language Learners (ELL) are the fastest-growing student population in schools across the United States. Between the years of 1989-2006, the ELL population more than doubled from just over 2,000,000 to over 5,000,000 (NCELA, 2008). The NCELA as cited by Oliveira (2011), reports that “more than 10% of the K-12 student population across the United States is comprised of ELLs, which accounts for over five million students in our schools (p. 59). This rapid increase in ELL students in the nation’s schools has greatly ...

A “Mind-Boggling” Implication: The Hebrew Bible, The Old Testament, And The Definition Of A Work, David Conners 2014 Association of Jewish Libraries

A “Mind-Boggling” Implication: The Hebrew Bible, The Old Testament, And The Definition Of A Work, David Conners

Judaica Librarianship

The uniform title Bible. O.T. has long caused difficulty in Judaica libraries. The well documented problems caused by this heading are reviewed. Alternative models developed by the Hebraica Team of the Library of Congress (LC) are discussed, as is an LC proposed rule change to Resource Description and Access (RDA) that was partially approved by the Joint Steering Committee. The idea by members of the Association of Jewish Libraries to use the Virtual International Authority File as a technical solution is reviewed briefly. The author endorses a model from LC that uses different uniform titles for the Hebrew Bible ...

In 1992, Judaica Librarianship featured an article by Zachary Baker, entitled “What We Owe the Genealogists: Genealogy and the Judaica Reference Librarian.” He followed it up in 2003 with an article in Slavic & East European Information Resources entitled “Resources on the Genealogy of Eastern European Jews.”The present article provides an update on the resources available to Jewish genealogists today, with particular emphasis on print and online resources that are recom- mended for the smaller Judaica library. It lists some of the sources in Baker’s article that have been updated and some that have gone online. It describes JewishGen ...

Beating The Odds. A Book Review Of Democratic Education In Practice: Inside The Mission Hill School, Gregory Smith 2014 Lewis and Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling

Beating The Odds. A Book Review Of Democratic Education In Practice: Inside The Mission Hill School, Gregory Smith

Democracy and Education

Democratic Education in Practice by Matthew Knoester provides a powerful antidote to the despair progressive teachers too easily can feel in the face of the corporate-sponsored onslaught against 21st-century public schools. The book provides a fine-grained view of the Mission Hill School in Boston, started in 1997 by two of the nation’s most committed and creative progressive educators.
