Handbook On Teacher-Student Relationships, Michael Anthony Arteaga 2017 California State University, San Bernardino

Handbook On Teacher-Student Relationships, Michael Anthony Arteaga

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

This project aims to help teachers learn how to connect with their students of different cultural backgrounds. It is written to help teachers understand how cultural differences can have an unseen effect on student learning and immediacy.

This project will also have a handbook to help teachers learn about their students’ backgrounds and understand how culture plays a role in the learning process.

The Younger Generation, Sherry Stoddard 2017 Iowa State University

The Younger Generation, Sherry Stoddard

The Iowa Homemaker

Forty years from now ... an era far from the mind's eye of today, or perhaps not so far, measured on the scale of the past altogether.


Here's How We Look, The Iowa Homemaker 2017 Iowa State University

Here's How We Look, The Iowa Homemaker

The Iowa Homemaker

"Is that how I really look?" "That's not my voice!" People are amazed that the camera and the tape recorder are accurate reproductions of appearance and sound. Sometimes, though, these devices are the inspiration for changes which will improve undesirable features in a personality.

Iowa farm women created another food fad when they dipped into the lime that their husbands used on the farm. The lime was combined in a syrup and produced pickles which had an unsurpassed crispness.

Let's Split A Pizza, Barbara Pierson

The Iowa Homemaker

A chocolate malt and a peanut butter and bacon sandwich, or a pizza and a bottle of pop? When you place your order for this imaginary, late-evening snack, you will also be showing your age by choosing the food that was a fad during your college years.


Decorating Your Home With The Family In Mind, Jan Wheeler 2017 Iowa State University

Decorating Your Home With The Family In Mind, Jan Wheeler

The Iowa Homemaker

New ideas and products are forever popping up in the world of interior decoration, and new and exciting trends are always in swing. These ideas and tendencies may be completely novel or may be delightful revivals of a past era, as seems to be prominent with the current emphasis on early American and provincial decor.

Mortar Board Presents: Know Your Neighbor, The Iowa Homemaker

The Iowa Homemaker

There is one family in America named "Minority Group." They are composed of one third of the citizens of the United States. They constantly encounter opposition from the other two thirds of the population who stereotype them and judge their superiority, equality, or inferiority.

1950s, Ruth Abbott Remy 2017 Iowa State University

1950s, Ruth Abbott Remy

The Iowa Homemaker

I graduated in 1957, so "home ec" as I knew it probably isn't too different from what you have today. Yet, I do know of several changes that seem strange to my "old-grad" ears.


1940s, Ruth Hackett Webber 2017 Iowa State University

1940s, Ruth Hackett Webber

The Iowa Homemaker

The Forties saw the beginning and the end of the War. In the first part a man was either 4-F or in the service, and the campus ratio wasn't as favorable to women as usual. The shift brought more women to Iowa State College because families didn't have to pay to put their sons through school, and they sent their daughters. In 1941, home economics enrollment hit a peak of nearly 1,800 students.


1930s, Laura Christensen Daily 2017 Iowa State University

1930s, Laura Christensen Daily

The Iowa Homemaker

There are two college-age persons who live at our house and call me "Mom," and they are reasonably well-informed about American history, sociology, economics, and other aspects of our culture. Yet they have one blind spot. They believe that the time of their parent's youth is known as the Olden Days; everyone who lived then was a righteous, thrifty, ambitious "square," and certainly college life bore no resemblance to the enlightened way they are living it now.


1920s, Rose Storm Summers 2017 Iowa State University

1920s, Rose Storm Summers

The Iowa Homemaker

The Terrible Twenties took over our lives while I was a freshman at Ames. Following on the heels of the "War To End Wars," there were so many changes in our way of life that our generation was wholly unaware we were to become the symbol of the great upheaval in social traditions. We just considered ourselves a little more "progressive" than older brothers and sisters- considerably more progressive than our parents!

"But Daddy doesn't have to eat it!" In a few years this may be chanted regularly at your dinner table. And the rejected foods will probably be vegetables.

The Man Behind "The Lady From Hancock", Laveda Jansonius

The Iowa Homemaker

"I have three pieces of advice if you decide to run for county representative. First, work hard at your job. Second, don't get angry when you hear something you don't like. And finally, if you lose - either the election or any issues in legislature - be a gracious loser."
