(Re)Constructing Ell And International Student Identities In The Oral Communication Course, Richie Neil Hao 2010 Southern Illinois University Carbondale

(Re)Constructing Ell And International Student Identities In The Oral Communication Course, Richie Neil Hao

Basic Communication Course Annual

There have been numerous studies (e.g., Dick, 1990; Ferris, 1998; Jung & McCroskey, 2004; Yook, 1995; Yook & Seiler, 1990; Zimmerman, 1995) that discuss the obstacles that English Language Learners (ELL) and international students face in oral communication classrooms. Although these studies provide teaching strategies that can be employed to better serve ELL and international students, they also reinforce stereotypical student identities. By exploring and engaging in critical communication pedagogy (Fassett & Warren, 2007), I problematize some of the foundational studies that construct ELL and international student identities as “at-risk” in oral communication classrooms and offer possibilities by specifically advocating for hybrid oral communication classes where ...

Repetition And Possibilities: Foundational Communication Course, Graduate Teaching Assistants, Etc., Chris McRae 2010 Southern Illinois University Carbondale

Repetition And Possibilities: Foundational Communication Course, Graduate Teaching Assistants, Etc., Chris Mcrae

Basic Communication Course Annual

This essay considers repetition as a site for change and possibility in the foundational communication course. Using performative writing, I consider repetition as simultaneously comfortable and dangerous. As repeated actions become commonplace they can easily go unnoticed, and unchallenged. However, repeated actions can also become recognizable as patterns that can be changed. Repetition is then, a useful and even necessary starting place for the recognition of possibilities and the enactment of change. As a graduate teaching assistant, I find repetition useful for my pedagogy, but I am wary of how power operates through repetition in discursive and material ways. I ...

Spirituality And Rape Myth Acceptance: An Exploratory Study, Stephen M. Mattiace 2010 Taylor University

Spirituality And Rape Myth Acceptance: An Exploratory Study, Stephen M. Mattiace

Master of Arts in Higher Education Theses

The incidence of rape is a significant concern for college campuses (Fisher, Cullen, & Turner, 2000), and the acceptance of myths about rape abound on campuses and in society (Burt, 1980; Bohner, Danner, Siebler, & Samson, 2002; Carmody & Washington, 2001; Chiroro, Bohner, Viki, & Jarvis, 2004). A copious amount of research has examined factors that increase rape myth acceptance, or the belief in any false statement or thought that inaccurately portrays a rape situation (Foubert & Marriot, 1997; Foubert & Newberry, 2006; Foubert & Perry, 2007; Johnson, Kuck, & Schander, 1997). However, very limited research sought to identify decreases in myth acceptance. One study has examined the relationship between moral development and rape myth acceptance (Tatum & Foubert, 2009). Given the close connection between moral development and spiritual development (Fowler, 1980; Walker & Reimer, 2005), a connection between rape myth acceptance and spiritual development may exist.

This study proposed and examined the link between spiritual development and rape myth acceptance. Scores were examined from 123 men at a small, Midwest, private, liberal arts institution, who completed the Spiritual Maturity Index (Ellison, 1984) and the Illinois Rape Myth Acceptance Scale (Payne, Lonsway, & Fitzgerald, 1999). A mean comparison indicated a moderate, negative correlation between spiritual development score and rape myth ...


Parents, Professionals, And Preschoolers: The Experience Of Working Parents At A Christian, Liberal Arts Institution, Sara E. James 2010 Taylor University - Upland

Parents, Professionals, And Preschoolers: The Experience Of Working Parents At A Christian, Liberal Arts Institution, Sara E. James

Master of Arts in Higher Education Theses

Working parents with young children experience unique challenges when working at an institution of higher education. Each parent-professional’s experience is different, but researchers have revealed certain commonalities which will be examined in this study. The nine participants, all of whom work at a Christian liberal arts institution in the Midwest, in this study represent parents of pre-kindergarten age children. These individuals work in various ways on campus: administration, teaching faculty, student development faculty, and salaried staff. Ultimately, in this phenomenological study I seek to help university administrators, as well as parent-professionals, understand the tension between the demands of professional ...


A Phenomenological Study Of Biracial Identity Development, Felicia T. Case 2010 Taylor University

A Phenomenological Study Of Biracial Identity Development, Felicia T. Case

Master of Arts in Higher Education Theses

A “biracial baby boom” has taken place in America (Root, 1992). More than six million people chose to check more than one box on the 2000 census and according to Herman (2004), children and youth constituted forty-two percent of the American multiracial population. The purpose of this study was to explore the lived experience of biracial college students in order to understand the specific issues related to their racial identity development. Nine biracial individuals participated in this phenomenological qualitative study. A variety of factors emerged (parental influence, social networks and appearance) as determinants to how these biracial individuals self-identified. Participants ...


Mercy, Not Sacrifice: College Student Spirituality And Social Concern And Action, Philip D. Byers 2010 Taylor University

Mercy, Not Sacrifice: College Student Spirituality And Social Concern And Action, Philip D. Byers

Master of Arts in Higher Education Theses

Recently, scholars and practitioners are increasingly promoting a reexamination of the role of spirituality in the college environment (Astin, 2004; Kuh & Gonyea, 2006; Lindholm & Astin, 2007). Since spirituality has often been associated with service and a variety of other humanitarian motivations, multiple higher education theorists have speculated on the relationship between the two learning outcomes. However, influential higher education researchers have noted the dearth of research on spirituality in higher education in general (Astin, Astin, & Lindholm, n.d.), and heretofore investigators have barely examined the connection between spirituality and manifestations of social action. In this study I examined the relationship between Spirituality ...


Depression's Influence On Involvement, David Downey 2010 Taylor University

Depression's Influence On Involvement, David Downey

Master of Arts in Higher Education Theses

Depression is a major issue among college students. Research is clear that depression is an increasing problem in college; approximately half of all college students will experience at least one period of depression during their college experience (Kadison & Digeronimo, 2004, p. 240; Westfield & Furr, 2001). Further, higher education literature emphasizes the importance of student involvement in regards to key issues including academic performance, retention, and personal development (Astin, 1999; Cress et al., 2001; Abrahamowicz 1988). This research sought to identify how a student's level of depression influences the extent to which a student is actively involved in the college experience. In order to gain these results, 412 senior students who completed the College Senior Survey (CSS) were studied to compare their level of depression to their level of involvement ...


The Impact Of Coeducational Residence Halls On Men's Relationships With Women, Josh Wymore 2010 Taylor University

The Impact Of Coeducational Residence Halls On Men's Relationships With Women, Josh Wymore

Master of Arts in Higher Education Theses

The college years are a critical time for the development of healthy male-female relationships, but institutions on the whole often neglect or poorly meet that need. Astin (1993b) found that "college does not eliminate or even reduce many of the stereotypical differences between the sexes" and often "serve[s] to widen gender gaps that existed at the point of college entry" (p.9). One such remedy for this developmental issue is the coeducational hall, a learning environment designed to engender normal interactions between men and women and break down unsubstantiated biases between genders.

This study examined the relationship between coeducational ...

Reflective Writing As An Assessment For Student Analysis And Synthesis Ability In A Landscape Design Course, Ann Marie VanDerZanden 2010 Iowa State University

Reflective Writing As An Assessment For Student Analysis And Synthesis Ability In A Landscape Design Course, Ann Marie Vanderzanden

Horticulture Publications

Horticulture graduates entering the field of landscape design and installation must be able to integrate technical skills with practical applications. This requires higher-order thinking skills such as critical thinking, which can be practiced through various teaching and learning strategies in an undergraduate curriculum. The objective of this project was to develop a series of three reflective writing assignments in a landscape design course to help students improve their critical thinking skills of analysis and synthesis. Scores on an 18-point quiz question for 110 students enrolled in Beginning Garden Composition (HORT 380) from 2005 to 2009 were compared. The comparison was ...

Seeing You, Seeing Me: Social Perspective-Taking As Learning, Terry J. Burant, Francisco Rios 2010 Western Washington University

Seeing You, Seeing Me: Social Perspective-Taking As Learning, Terry J. Burant, Francisco Rios

Woodring College of Education Faculty Publications

This paper examines the use of social perspective-taking as learning in an education course in an undergraduate teacher education program. Using curriculum documents, student writing, field notes, faculty journals, and focus group interviews, the study identified the foundational/multicultural content understandings and the emotional responses that social perspective-taking activities promoted. Implications of social perspective-taking in teacher education courses and broader programmatic questions about social perspective-taking pedagogy for teaching and learning are addressed.
