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 ...


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.


A Causal Comparative Investigation Into Transactional Versus Transformational Instructional Delivery Style In Two Freshman-Level Humanities Courses At A Southeastern American University, Michael J. Jaynes 2014 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

A Causal Comparative Investigation Into Transactional Versus Transformational Instructional Delivery Style In Two Freshman-Level Humanities Courses At A Southeastern American University, Michael J. Jaynes

Masters Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

The purpose of the study was to utilize a causal comparative approach to compare two contrasting instructional delivery styles to determine if there was any difference in final grade outcome between students whose instructors used transactional instructional delivery techniques and students whose instructors used transformational instructional delivery techniques in two lower division undergraduate humanities courses at a southeastern university. A secondary purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between instructional delivery style and student perception of teacher effectiveness. The primary researcher also examined if student assessment and teacher self-assessment of teacher delivery style would align. The research questions ...

Exploration Des Facteurs Influençant La Mobilisation Des Savoirs Par Une Pensée Critique Chez Des Étudiantes Infirmières Bachelières Lors De Stages Cliniques, Kathleen Lechasseur, Ginette Lazure, Louise Guilbert

Quality Advancement in Nursing Education - Avancées en formation infirmière

Pour contribuer activement à la santé des personnes, les infirmières doivent faire appel à une diversité de savoirs dans leur pratique. Face à l’augmentation constante de la complexité des soins, la formation de la relève comporte des enjeux majeurs. L’étude visait à caractériser le processus de mobilisation des savoirs par une pensée critique chez des étudiantes infirmières bachelières en situation de soins en vue de mieux comprendre son déploiement et de le soutenir. Une approche qualitative, inspirée de la théorisation ancrée a mis au jour certains des facteurs d’influence sur ce processus en recourant à un entretien ...

Colgan Air Accident-Driven Changes To Part 121 Flight Operations: It Is Time For Phase Two (Editorial), Donald R. Gibbs 2014 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Colgan Air Accident-Driven Changes To Part 121 Flight Operations: It Is Time For Phase Two (Editorial), Donald R. Gibbs

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

It has been just one year since the FAA mandated a minimum of 1500 total flight hours for all part 121 pilots and the implementation of the corresponding 3-tier restricted ATP program based on reduced flight hours. It is time to consider alternatives that meet both the concerns of congress and the concerns of the Colgan Air mishap families, while simultaneously being sensitive to the industry pilot shortage. How did we get here and are there any off-the-shelf alternatives to the three tiers to help get pilots into the left seat sooner?

This article is an editorial and does not ...


Assessing Public Relations Student Learning And Performance In Real World Client Campaigns And Projects, Douglas J. Swanson Ed.D APR 2014 SelectedWorks

Assessing Public Relations Student Learning And Performance In Real World Client Campaigns And Projects, Douglas J. Swanson Ed.D Apr

Douglas J. Swanson, Ed.D APR

Extensive research affirms the benefits of engaging public relations undergraduates in campaigns and projects for real world clients. At the same time, instructors often have difficulty evaluating student learning and performance in such work, for three reasons: (1.) In order for the work to truly be real world, instructors must allow students a high level of autonomy. (2.) Clients are often poor judges of appropriate public relations practice. (3.) Students often hesitate to inform instructors of strategic challenges or team member negligence or malfeasance. This poster session presents a brief overview of assessment concepts affirming why it is important to ...


Using Pbl To Prepare Educators And Emergency Managers To Plan For Severe Weather, Sarah L. Stalker, Theresa Cullen, Kevin Kloesel 2014 Purdue University

Using Pbl To Prepare Educators And Emergency Managers To Plan For Severe Weather, Sarah L. Stalker, Theresa Cullen, Kevin Kloesel

Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning

Within the past 10 years severe weather has been responsible for an annual average of 278 fatalities in the United States (National Weather Service, 2013). During severe weather special populations are populations of high concentrations of people that cannot respond quickly. Schools show both of these characteristics. The average lead time for tornadoes is only 11 minutes (Simmons & Sutter, 2008), so decisions must be made decisively and leaders must be prepared in advance. This paper describes how an instructional design process was used to develop an interdisciplinary problem based learning training for both school personnel and emergency managers. In this ...


Augustinian Approach To Holistic Christian Pedagogy, Adam Schultz, Neal DeRoo 2014 Dordt College

Augustinian Approach To Holistic Christian Pedagogy, Adam Schultz, Neal Deroo

Faculty Work

Presenters explain how in their CORE philosophy class they seek to demonstrate that their students' real life-spiritual life distinction is symptomatic of a dualism endemic to contemporary Christianity (section 1), and that their reading of Augustine's Confessions can provide a unified and holistic corrective to it (section 2) and that doing so helps students see a more radical vision of Christian faithfulness, one that calls for a holistic, life-wide response to the work of Christ that will not allow for an easy distinction between ‘spiritual’ life and everyday life (section 3).


The Role Of Reusable Learning Objects In Occupational Therapy Entry-Level Education, Bryan M. Gee PhD(c), MEd, OTR/L, BCP, Jane Strickland Ed.D., Lisa Salazar Ph.D.(c), M.Ed., MPH 2014 Western Michigan University

The Role Of Reusable Learning Objects In Occupational Therapy Entry-Level Education, Bryan M. Gee Phd(C), Med, Otr/L, Bcp, Jane Strickland Ed.D., Lisa Salazar Ph.D.(C), M.Ed., Mph

The Open Journal of Occupational Therapy

Out of early research, Cisco Systems (1999) have built an impressive foundation that advocates for reusable learning objects (RLOs). As the need for online methods for delivering both formal and informal educational content has increased, the prospect of greater influence through carefully constructed RLOs has grown. RLOs are any digital resource that can be used and reused to enhance online learning. RLOs typically are small, discrete, self-contained digital objects that may be sequenced, combined, and used within a variety of instructional activities. RLOs have been implemented in nursing, pharmacy, and physician assistant programs. However, there is a lack of literature ...


Importance Of School Library Programs, Cynthia Strong 2014 Seattle Pacific University

Importance Of School Library Programs, Cynthia Strong

SPU Works

Within the discipline of library science, over 20 research studies have been done in the United States attesting to how high-quality school library programs contribute to improved academic achievement. On the other hand, in the fields of education, school counseling, administration, and school leadership, and so on, there is a dearth of scholarship and recognition of the positive impact librarians and library media program have on student success. This conceptual paper first presents an overview of the empirical research on school library programs and the positive impact they have on the academic achievement of students in the United States. Second ...

The Effect Of Morphological Strategies Training For English Language Learners, Qizhen Deng, Guy Trainin 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Effect Of Morphological Strategies Training For English Language Learners, Qizhen Deng, Guy Trainin

Research and Evaluation in Literacy

The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of morphological strategies training for English language learners from an Intensive English Program with different English proficiency levels. A secondary goal was to investigate how the training influences their cognitive load during morphological analysis tasks. Findings from 22 participants revealed that morphological strategies training positively affects the morphological awareness of ELLs and reduces the cognitive load of ELLs for all types of morphological tasks regardless of their English proficiency level: sentence completion, analogy, break down words, and meaning guess.

A Testimony Of Hope. A Book Review Of Critical Consciousness In Curricular Research, Audrey Lingley 2014 Lewis and Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling

A Testimony Of Hope. A Book Review Of Critical Consciousness In Curricular Research, Audrey Lingley

Democracy and Education

The anthology Critical Consciousness in Curricular Research: Evidence from the Field (William-White, Muccular, D., Muccular, G., & Brown, 2013) contains a multilogical collection of strategies for establishing curriculum work as an integral part of what it means to be a teacher. Although the contributors represent a diverse range of backgrounds, perspectives, and years in education, a common manifesto emerges: Curriculum inquiry is a pathway for the enactment of democratic pedagogy and enfranchisement of marginalized students (and teachers). The editors provide a vibrant and engaging testimony of hope with which to revitalize the notion of curriculum work as part of what is ...


Deliberative Democracy In English-Language Education: Cultural And Linguistic Inclusion In The School Community, Tonda Liggett 2014 Lewis and Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling

Deliberative Democracy In English-Language Education: Cultural And Linguistic Inclusion In The School Community, Tonda Liggett

Democracy and Education

One of the most notable aspects of democracy in schooling lies in the challenge of schools to prepare individuals with the skills to participate and deliberate with others who have varying beliefs and worldviews. Deliberation and dialogue are seen as core components for academic achievement and cross-cultural connections between English language learners (ELLs) and native English speakers. I analyze the notion of deliberative democracy in English language education as a way to promote a certain type of education that would foster ELL inclusion as well as expand the perspectives of native English speakers. I argue that this type of education ...


Democratic Teaching: An Incomplete Job Description, Rachel Bradshaw 2014 Lewis and Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling

Democratic Teaching: An Incomplete Job Description, Rachel Bradshaw

Democracy and Education

The importance of public education in democratic states is almost beyond dispute. Too often, though, discussions of democratic education focus solely on policies and systems, forgetting the individual teachers who are ultimately responsible for educating future citizens. This paper attempts to illustrate just how complex and significant the role of teachers in a democratic republic can be.

Arts Of War: Reconsidering Conflict Through Interdisciplinary Artistic Collaboration, John Macinnis

Faculty Work

CORE 160: Introduction to the Arts is required as part of the core curriculum at Dordt College and is team taught every semester by four professors who each address a different art form: Music, Theatre, Film, and Visual Art. Semesters are divided in half, and students select two art forms for special attention. Additionally, all students meet in two mass sections in which the team of professors address topics spanning all the arts. These mass sections are an opportunity to demonstrate for students that interdisciplinary collaboration around a given topic often produces remarkable insight.

Last year, in recognition of the ...
