Algebra Readiness Outcomes Of Sixth-Grade Boys And Girls Placed In Challenge Math Based On Measured Math Ability Compared To Sixth-Grade Boys And Girls Placed In Challenge Math Based On Teachers' Recommendations, David C. Hemphill 2011 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Algebra Readiness Outcomes Of Sixth-Grade Boys And Girls Placed In Challenge Math Based On Measured Math Ability Compared To Sixth-Grade Boys And Girls Placed In Challenge Math Based On Teachers' Recommendations, David C. Hemphill

Student Work

The first pretest-posttest hypothesis was tested using the dependent t test. Null hypotheses for test score improvement over time were rejected for the end of fifth-grade pretest compared to ending sixth-grade posttest math Essential Learner Outcome scores converted to standard scores for randomly selected sixth-grade girls meeting measured test score criteria for challenge math placement ( n = 15): pretest M = 120.07, SD = 4.32; posttest M = 121.87, SD = 2.17; t (14) = 1.73, p = .05 (one-tailed), d = 0.500 and rejected for randomly selected sixth-grade girls not meeting measured test score criteria for challenge math placement (n = 15 ...


Teaching Grammer And Writing: A Beginning Teacher's Dilemma, P. Smagorinsky, Amy A. Wilson, C. Moore 2011 Utah State University

Teaching Grammer And Writing: A Beginning Teacher's Dilemma, P. Smagorinsky, Amy A. Wilson, C. Moore

Teacher Education and Leadership Faculty Publications

This longitudinal case study follows one high school English teacher’s path of concept development over a two-year period encompassing her student teaching and first year of full-time teaching, both at the same rural school in the southeastern United States. The authors use a sociocultural theoretical framework emerging from the work of Vygotsky to focus on the construction of activity settings and the ways in which settings help to shape concept development. In particular, the analysis finds the teacher drawing on apparently inconsistent pedagogical traditions and their associated mediational tools: one centered on a teacher’s authoritarian control of the ...


One Adolescent's Construction Of Native Identity In School: "Speaking With Dance And Not In Words And Writing", Amy A. Wilson, M. D. Boatright 2011 Utah State University

One Adolescent's Construction Of Native Identity In School: "Speaking With Dance And Not In Words And Writing", Amy A. Wilson, M. D. Boatright

Teacher Education and Leadership Faculty Publications

This case study describes how one eighth-grade student, Jon, asserted Native identities in texts as he attended a middle school in the western United States. Jon--a self-described Native American, Navajo, and Paiute with verified Native ancestry--sought to share what he called his Native culture with others in his school wherein he was the only Native American, despite his perception that schools have historically suppressed this culture. To study how the texts that Jon designed in school may have afforded and constrained the expression of Native identities, the authors collected three types of data over the course of eight months: (a ...

The Implementation Of Life Space Crisis Intervention As A School-Wide Strategy For Reducing Violence And Supporting Students' Continuation In Public Schools, John E. Ramin 2011 Syracuse University

The Implementation Of Life Space Crisis Intervention As A School-Wide Strategy For Reducing Violence And Supporting Students' Continuation In Public Schools, John E. Ramin

Teaching and Leadership - Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to explore the effectiveness of implementing Life Space Crisis Intervention as a school-wide strategy for reducing school violence.

Life Space Crisis Intervention (LSCI) is a strength-based verbal interaction strategy (Long, Fecser, Wood, 2001). LSCI utilizes naturally occurring crisis situations as teachable moments

The literature review analyzes school violence, violence prevention programs and effective change practices.

This study employed mixed research methods with a sample population of public school, LSCI trained, staff members in Central New York.

The result of this study supports two conclusions: LSCI is an effective school-wide strategy, but was not implemented ...


Old Broken Crayons: Adolescent Artists With Autism In Art Education, Corrie Burdick 2011 Syracuse University

Old Broken Crayons: Adolescent Artists With Autism In Art Education, Corrie Burdick

Teaching and Leadership - Dissertations

This research engages a combined qualitative methodology of arts-informed research and critical descriptive ethnography to study thirteen adolescent artists with autism as they engage in art making across multiple art education contexts. This study revealed the perceptions of stakeholders about art and autism that informed the access these adolescent artists had to art education and art materials. These perceptions included varying ideas of competence, ability and struggle associated with an identity as `autistic'. In the examination of these adolescents' experiences the engagement with art making and the role of art in the lives of these artists is explored. It is ...


Determining Data Information Literacy Needs: A Study Of Students And Research Faculty, Jake R. Carlson, Michael Fosmire, Chris Miller, Megan R. Sapp Nelson 2011 Purdue University

Determining Data Information Literacy Needs: A Study Of Students And Research Faculty, Jake R. Carlson, Michael Fosmire, Chris Miller, Megan R. Sapp Nelson

Libraries Faculty and Staff Scholarship and Research

Researchers increasingly need to integrate the disposition, management and curation of their data into their current workflows. However, it is not yet clear to what extent faculty and students are sufficiently prepared to take on these responsibilities. This paper articulates the need for a data information literacy program (DIL) to prepare students to engage in such an “e-research” environment. Assessments of faculty interviews and student performance in a geoinformatics course provide complementary sources of information, which are then filtered through the perspective of ACRL’s information literacy competency standards to produce a draft set of outcomes for a data information ...


Institutionalizing Information Literacy, Sharon A. Weiner 2011 Purdue University

Institutionalizing Information Literacy, Sharon A. Weiner

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

Information literacy is recognized globally as essential for individual and community empowerment, workforce readiness, and global competitiveness. Recent international efforts related to information literacy have the goal of mainstreaming it in educational systems and in societies. However, there is a history of difficulty in integrating it with the educational process. This integration with the educational process may be referred to as institutionalization. Although the goal of colleges and universities is to graduate information literate critical thinkers, there is no established strategy for instilling this competency in students. This paper proposes that a lack of understanding of the organizational functioning ...

Higher Education Professional Pilot Faculty Qualifications: Are The Stakes Rising?, David C. Ison 2011 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Higher Education Professional Pilot Faculty Qualifications: Are The Stakes Rising?, David C. Ison

Department of Graduate Studies - Worldwide

"Within the aviation research literature there have been numerous studies that have either included or focused upon the attributes of associated faculty. Although such studies provide compelling data about these individuals, trends or changes in requirements for faculty are not easily identified within the findings. Of particular concern is the fact that credentialization, the escalation of required educational attainment and certification, has been permeating throughout higher education in the United States. It is of interest to see if such pressures are also infiltrating the collegiate aviation environment. Further, data about trends can help future faculty prepare for possible employment, it ...

The main findings of this report are based on the outcomes from the National Research Student Survey (NRSS) conducted in June 2010 across 38 of the 39 universities in Australia. In total 11,710 Higher Degree by Research students (those enrolled in PhD and masters by research degrees, also referred to simply as ‘research students’ in this report) responded to the NRSS, providing a 25.5 per cent response rate across the country. These response numbers represent the largest collection of survey responses from research students ever undertaken in Australia. The report primarily explores the career intentions and motivations of ...
