Do Paraeducators Use Best Practices With Students Who Exhibit Aggressive Behaviors?, Michelle Weiss 2012 Brigham Young University - Provo

Do Paraeducators Use Best Practices With Students Who Exhibit Aggressive Behaviors?, Michelle Weiss

All Theses and Dissertations

Researchers question the growing use of paraeducators in public school special education classrooms, complaining that the professionals with the least education are being asked to assist the students requiring the most intervention (Blalock, 1991; Giangreco, Broer, & Edelman, 1999). How well are paraprofessional educators prepared to use best practices for behavior management in special education settings? The eight special education paraprofessionals surveyed in this study demonstrated varying levels of knowledge regarding how to respond to the aggressive behaviors often displayed by students with emotional disturbance (ED). Paraeducators who reported receiving the most district- or teacher-led training (4 to 16+ hours) recommended ...


Centralized Visualization Of Distributed Collaborative Note-Taking, Aaron W. Johnson 2012 Brigham Young University - Provo

Centralized Visualization Of Distributed Collaborative Note-Taking, Aaron W. Johnson

All Theses and Dissertations

This development project originated in response to the enormous daily increase of information that becomes available on the internet as a result of social media activities. Twitter, a quintessential example of social media, can also be considered a framework for collaborative note-taking. The October 2010 General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provided an interesting example of distributed collaborative note-taking as thousands of Twitter users took notes on the conference addresses. The result was a collection of 26,479 tweets. The purpose of this project is to describe a novel information visualization algorithm that generates a ...

A Comparative Analysis Of Two Forms Of Gyeonggi English Communicative Ability Test Based On Classical Test Theory And Item Response Theory, Young-Beol Yoon

All Theses and Dissertations

This study is an empirical analysis of the 2009 and 2010 forms of the Gyeonggi English Communicative Ability Test (GECAT) based on the responses of 2,307 students to the 2009 GECAT and 2,907 students to the 2010 GECAT. The GECAT is an English proficiency examination sponsored by the Gyeonggi Provincial Office of Education (GOE) in South Korea.

From 2004 until 2009, the test included 80 multiple-choice items ...


The Efficacy Of Small Multiples In The Visual Language Of Instructional Designs, Douglas B. Stringham 2012 Brigham Young University - Provo

The Efficacy Of Small Multiples In The Visual Language Of Instructional Designs, Douglas B. Stringham

All Theses and Dissertations

The visualization strategy of small multiples (Tufte, 1983, 1990, 1997) is not merely the clever or ordered arrangement of similar and personable images; small multiples—purposeful compositions of similarly sized, repeated illustrations—contain a great deal more than the sum of their respective parts. The purpose of this study is to define a set of objectives and guiding tactics for using small multiples in the visual language of instructional designs. This study aims to (1) compile a targeted literature review cataloging the historical treatment of small multiples and their pedagogical and cognitive virtues and (2) analyze examples of small multiples ...

Making Learning Visible: The Genesis Of A Learning Community, Elizabeth Predeger, Randy Magen, Deborah Periman 2012 University of Alaska Anchorage

Making Learning Visible: The Genesis Of A Learning Community, Elizabeth Predeger, Randy Magen, Deborah Periman

Randy Howard Magen

A brief history on the genesis of a faculty-designed Faculty Learning Community (FLC), Making Learning Visible, on one Northwest campus, will set the stage for a shared dialogue of possibilities. A view through the eyes of faculty members involved in the evolution of this community of learners will be shared. Engaging participants as a "think tank," we will collaboratively design a learning community template for creating a campus culture of sustained excellence.


Prioritizing Library Instruction: Challenges And Opportunities Moving Into The Digital Age, Rob Morrison, Deana Greenfield, Marisa Walstrum, Amy LeFager 2012 National-Louis University

Prioritizing Library Instruction: Challenges And Opportunities Moving Into The Digital Age, Rob Morrison, Deana Greenfield, Marisa Walstrum, Amy Lefager

Rob Morrison

The role of librarian as teacher is shifting as we experience changes in our institutions, in technology, and in our communities. We must identify opportunities to address these issues and shape the future of our profession. Drawing upon the experience of moving from traditional library sessions to offering credit courses integrated into the curriculum of college programs, the four facilitators will lead participants in a collaborative session to identify the challenges and opportunities of integrating librarians as teachers into the student experience. Participants should bring questions, challenges, and opportunities they are facing at their own institutions. Through group discussion and ...


Videopoetry: Collaboration As Imaginative Method, Peter Lutze, James Armstrong, Laura Woodworth-Ney 2012 Boise State University

Videopoetry: Collaboration As Imaginative Method, Peter Lutze, James Armstrong, Laura Woodworth-Ney

James Armstrong

Three Idaho professors (a poet, videographer, and historian) have been collaborating for eight years on a cross-disciplinary project called VideoPoetry, which integrates historical narration, narrative poetry, historical photographs, and videography into the video medium. To this point we've worked primarily on a specific program, Culture of Reclamation, which explores the culture of the early irrigated landscape communities in southern Idaho. In reflecting on our work-process, we’ve discovered that we’ve fundamentally changed as scholars as a result of our collaboration. This paper identifies the nature of our changes and documents instances of the ways in which we have ...
