Thinking And Learning: Teaching English Language Learners, Jessica H. Kerr 2012 The College at Brockport

Thinking And Learning: Teaching English Language Learners, Jessica H. Kerr

Senior Honors Theses

In response to a continually changing demographic in U.S. schools, this paper looks at the current needs of English Language Learners from an instructional standpoint. The author seeks to provide insight and understanding into the metacognition of English Language Learners as well as a cultural awareness for working with these diverse learners. The overall goal of the paper is to demonstrate various ways educators can use this knowledge of English Language Learners to meet the needs of their students and help them reach their academic potential.

I never saw it coming. My students and I had just shared a splendid semester-long educational experience. I had deftly mixed original readings, engaging class discussions, illuminating lectures, and thoughtful assessments with a community-based project that gave students the opportunity to apply course concepts in a real-world setting. Or had I? You would think that, after some 30 years of opening packets of students’ evaluations at the semester’s end (and now, downloading them from the University’s evil evaluation website), that the thrill would be gone—no more disappointment, elation, or surprise.

Not so.

My course was a required ...

Development Of A Peer Teaching-Assessment Program And A Peer Observation And Evaluation Tool, Jennifer M. Trujillo, Margarita V. DiVall, Judith T. Barr, Michael J. Gonyeau, Jenny A. Van Amburgh, S. James Matthews, Donna M. Qualters 2012 Northeastern University

Development Of A Peer Teaching-Assessment Program And A Peer Observation And Evaluation Tool, Jennifer M. Trujillo, Margarita V. Divall, Judith T. Barr, Michael J. Gonyeau, Jenny A. Van Amburgh, S. James Matthews, Donna M. Qualters

Samuel James Matthews

Objectives. To develop a formalized, comprehensive, peer-driven teaching assessment program and a valid and reliable assessment tool. Methods. A volunteer taskforce was formed and a peer-assessment program was developed using a multistep, sequential approach and the Peer Observation and Evaluation Tool (POET). A pilot study was conducted to evaluate the efficiency and practicality of the process and to establish interrater reliability of the tool. Intra-class correlation coefficients (ICC) were calculated. Results. ICCs for 8 separate lectures evaluated by 2-3 observers ranged from 0.66 to 0.97, indicating good interrater reliability of the tool. Conclusion. Our peer assessment program for ...

Educators often struggle to introduce math and physics concepts in engaging ways. Computer games provide an engaging environment where considerable learning can take place. However, surprisingly little work has yet been done to integrate these concepts into entertaining computer games, instead mostly focusing on ""skill-drill"" style games. Leveraging our expertise in subsurface imaging, we have developed a simple, attractive prototype computer game based on the distance equation. We propose extending this work to include a wide range of concepts relevant to middle school-aged students on up to college students and beyond.

Northeastern University Young Scholars Program, Claire Duggan

Claire Duggan

Providing students and teachers and community college faculty an opportunity to be introduced to current research is central to the educational outreach of the Gordon Center. The Young Scholars Program began in 1989 in response to a national shortage of qualified U.S. citizens moving into STEM careers. Resurrected in 2005 through support from The Noyce Foundation, the NU Young Scholars Program (NUYSP) addresses a critical recommendation made in the recent national report, "Rising Above The Gathering Storm," by providing expanded experiential learning experiences in STEM for K-12 students. The model developed at NU has been refined over the past ...

Succession Planning In Us Pharmacy Schools, Jenny A. Van Amburgh, Christopher K. Surratt, James S. Green, Randle M. Gallucci, James Colbert, Shara L. Zatopek, Robert A. Blouin

Jenny A. Van Amburgh

The deans, associate and assistant deans, and department chairs of a college or school of pharmacy retain historic memories of the institution and share the responsibility for day-to-day operation, sustainability, and future planning. Between the anticipated retirement of baby boomers who are senior administrative faculty members and the steady increase in number of colleges and schools of pharmacy, the academy is facing a shortage of qualified successors. Succession planning involves planning for the effective transition of personnel in leadership positions within an organization. This paper describes the subject of succession planning at a sample population of AACP institutions by obtaining ...
