"100 Years Later, It Is Still So Powerful": Navigating The Effects Of The Armenian Genocide And Its Trauma On Armenian American Youth, Lara S. Kleine

Master's Theses

This thesis examines the effects of the Armenian Genocide on five Armenian American university students ages 18 to 29 in the San Francisco Bay Area. The impact of this event from 100 years ago is passed down generationally and still affects the current descendants of its survivors. Since this genocide is still denied by Turkey, its perpetrators, and by the United States, the impact on Armenians has increased as each generation fights for official recognition.

By conducting semi-structured qualitative interviews, the participants revealed its impact on their identity. This thesis was grounded in intergenerational trauma transmission theory and collective memory ...

Then And Now: An Analysis Of Broad-Based Merit Aid Initial Eligibility Policies After Twenty Years, William K. Ingle, Jason R. Ratliff

Kentucky Journal of Higher Education Policy and Practice

Using Hall’s framework of policy changes, we sought to document and classify changes in initial eligibility and award provisions of broad-based merit aid scholarship programs at inception and present day. Our analysis revealed five first-order changes, two second-order changes, and only one third order change. Although the policy settings, instruments, and goals remained static in five states, the scholarship dollars in four of them have not kept up with increases in overall cost of attendance.

Increasing Phonemic Awareness In Kindergarten Students: Using Ipads In Language Arts Centers, Michelle Harrison 2015 Dominican University of California

Increasing Phonemic Awareness In Kindergarten Students: Using Ipads In Language Arts Centers, Michelle Harrison

Master's Theses and Capstone Projects

Language arts teachers find that students at any elementary grade show a wide range of abilities, specifically in the area of phonemic awareness. Student abilities are not evaluated accurately using paper pencil tests.

A review of the literature addresses teaching approaches and effective use of technology in an elementary classroom. Implications of the research suggest that student engagement with technology have an impact on their learning (Kearsley & Shneiderman 1998). The research indicates that, if teachers do not monitor progress,students often view the use of iPad apps as games, not educational opportunities. Research findings emphasize that in order for students ...

Exploring The Relationship Between Parental Psychological Control And Emergent Leadership, Melissa S. Fenton 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Exploring The Relationship Between Parental Psychological Control And Emergent Leadership, Melissa S. Fenton

Theses, Dissertations, & Student Scholarship: Agricultural Leadership, Education & Communication Department

Leadership scholars have identified the need for research investigating the developmental antecedents of leadership (Avolio, 2007; Day 2011b; Murphy & Johnson, 2011). Although leadership scholars investigated the relationship between parenting and leadership, there was a gap in the leadership literature analyzing the impact of parental psychological control. This descriptive study explored the relationship between the five factor personality model, parental psychological control, and emergent leadership behaviors in emerging adults. Participants were emailed a survey including measures of the Big Five personality traits, affective-identity motivation to lead (Chan & Drasgow, 2001), leadership self-efficacy, parental psychological control, and self-reported formal and informal leadership positions. Parental psychological control was not significantly related to affective-identity motivation to lead (Chan & Drasgow, 2001), leadership self-efficacy, or leadership position. Extraversion, conscientiousness, and neuroticism were related to affective-identity motivation to lead (Chan & Drasgow, 2001), but were not related to leadership self-efficacy or leadership position. Agreeableness and openness to experience were not significantly related to any of the measures of emergent leadership. This study is significant as it is one of the first studies to successfully test the combination of the PCS-YSR (Barber, 1996) and PCDS (Barber et al., 2012) to measure parental psychological control and investigate the relationship between parental psychological control and emergent leadership. This study replicated findings from previous studies (Chan & Drasgow, 2001; Hendricks & Payne, 2007; Ng, Ang, & Chan, 2008) and further validated the measures used to measure emergent leader behaviors, parental psychological control, and the five-factor model of personality. The findings support the importance of access to leadership positions in emerging adulthood and contribute to the parenting and leadership literature.

The Effects Of Yoga Practice And Classroom Management In An Elementary School Setting, Gail L. Willits

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

Overall performance and well-being among student populations can be attributed to a decrease in stress and anxiety levels. Recent studies show a strong correlation between stress reduction using yoga movement, breathing and meditation. A calmer, focused and attentive classroom promotes an environment where both teacher and student experience less disruption. Limited research also supports a positive effect of yoga practice among students exhibiting symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Inattentiveness, impulsive and adverse behaviors can be successfully treated with yoga. Short interventions can offer students the coping skills needed to promote better self-esteem and confidence in learning and achievement ...

A Position Paper On Preschool Experience Vs. No Preschool Experience: Long Term Effects On Academic And Social Readiness Of Children, Dionne C. Estes

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

Despite federal and state investments in early education intervention programs, achievement gaps continue to afflict the education system with children from low-income families having a greater need of a high quality preschool education. When children from poor families move through the education system starting off behind, the chances of academic success becomes increasingly difficult, as the education gap increases year after year and they fall farther behind. By the time these students enter high school, they are so far behind they are unable to catch up and meet the grade level requirements, causing many of them to give up and ...
