The Power Of Workshop, Stephanie Nagl

Networks: An Online Journal for Teacher Research

This action research explores the use of Readers’-Writers’ Workshop (RWW) in the secondary English classroom. RWW often requires a paradigm shift on the part of the teacher to allow for more student autonomy and limiting direct instruction time. The researcher sought to discover whether or not this model would impact the engagement level and the attitudes toward reading of high school seniors. Findings suggest RWW can be an effective tool for engaging students, as well as, helping students to develop positive attitudes with reading practices.

Faculty Role In Student Career Development: A Qualitative Study, Marianne Jacullo Brosnan 2020 Seton Hall University

Faculty Role In Student Career Development: A Qualitative Study, Marianne Jacullo Brosnan

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

As chief architects of curriculum, faculty are largely responsible for student learning outcomes. Given the cost of higher education and the amount of debt students incur, higher education stakeholders want to know if higher education is worth the investment.

Student career preparedness is an important goal of higher education. While research has been dedicated to college student development, career decision-making, and student-faculty interaction from a student perspective, little is known about the faculty perspective and their role in student career preparedness in a specific articulated way.

In this study, the phenomenological perspective provided a framework for data collection and analysis ...


Increasing The Effectiveness Of Alcohol Reduction Programming, Jason Massey 2020 University of Southern Mississippi

Increasing The Effectiveness Of Alcohol Reduction Programming, Jason Massey

School of Education Doctoral Projects

ABSTRACT

In 1989, the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) was signed into law. This law gave the federal government the right to deny funding to universities if they did not certify the development, use and review of programming to prevent the abuse of alcohol and illicit drugs. Among the funds that could be denied are student loans sponsored by the federal government. If a university is unable to accept student loans, the number of students capable of attending decreases. The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) is an institution that depends on students who qualify for these federal funds, thus ...

Dnp Final Report: The Flipped Classroom: An Evidence-Based, Course Redesign To Increase Retention Rates In A Vocational Nursing Program, Jennifer P. Hauger

DNP Final Reports

Over the past three decades, Vocational Nursing has been taught using a conventional didactic method that is content heavy and lecture focused. Despite having a group of highly qualified professors and an excellent student pass rates on the National board examinations, student retention in a Vocational Nursing Program in central Texas remains below the National benchmark. With a unique student demographic that is identified as non-traditional (over 21, full-time working adults, English Second Language and single parents), we embarked upon the redesign of a Medical-Surgical Nursing course using the flipped pedagogical framework to increase retention rates. Therefore, in 2019 we ...
