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 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 ...

The Experiences Of School Principals Who Report Job Satisfaction: An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis, Sharon Michelle Edmond

Education Doctoral Theses

In a Metlife, Inc. study conducted in 2012, 41 percent of school principals reported job dissatisfaction. Of those, one-third admitted to looking for another job. The complexities and challenges faced by school principals in the K-12 sector has led to an increased number of dissatisfied principals and a decrease in retention. Several studies have looked at the challenges of the principal role and what can lead to a lack of satisfaction with the job, but few have focused on what brings job satisfaction to principals despite the challenges. The purpose of this study was to explore what contributes to job ...

FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education

For many years the discussion of education as a global and social institution has been prevalent in Comparative and International Education. In his book, The Schooled Society, David P. Baker offers up a unique perspective on a much-discussed theoretical framework in which to view education as an institution. Through this work, Baker uses a multidisciplinary approach to explain the influence that mass education has on societies and informs the readers of new educational paradoxes that are being discussed in the field. Not only is The Schooled Society an explanation of educational influence on society, but it also provides reason for ...

Against The Odds: The Impact Of The Key Communities At Colorado State University On Retention And Graduation For Historically Underrepresented Students, Taé Nosaka, Heather Novak

Learning Communities Research and Practice

Learning communities are a high impact activity that can influence students’ likelihood for success. Colorado State University (CSU) created the Key Communities (Key) program, which is open to all students but targets students that have persistently lower graduation and retention rates. The majority of Key students are under-represented (ethnically diverse, low-income, and/or first generation to college) and/or students with lower levels of academic preparation. This paper describes the structure and purpose of Key and shares the results of an institutional level assessment of Key’s impact on graduation and retention. Since participation in Key is not randomly assigned ...
