Lessons Learned From A Tiered Service Delivery Implementation Project, Evelyn Johnson, Juli Pool, Deborah Carter 2011 Boise State University

Lessons Learned From A Tiered Service Delivery Implementation Project, Evelyn Johnson, Juli Pool, Deborah Carter

Juli Lull Pool

Tiered models of service delivery for both academics and behavior are being increasingly adopted across the nation, and discussions of how to implement these models effectively and simultaneously are growing. In this article, the authors share some lessons learned from a 2-year implementation project to implement a comprehensive (both academic and behavior) model of tiered service delivery in an elementary school. The authors discuss four major issues that arose during implementation, including signs for predicting these challenges and insights into how they can be addressed.

Furthermore, teachers can conduct a dramatic play to allow children to take on roles and express their ideas.

The primary purpose of this study was to learn how a faculty development program ...


Elementary Teachers’ Mental Models Of Engineering Design Processes: A Comparison Of Two Communities Of Practice, Ann Piening McMahon 2011 University of Missouri-St. Louis

Elementary Teachers’ Mental Models Of Engineering Design Processes: A Comparison Of Two Communities Of Practice, Ann Piening Mcmahon

Dissertations

Educating K-12 students in the processes of design engineering is gaining popularity in public schools. Several states have adopted standards for engineering design despite the fact that no common agreement exists on what should be included in the K-12 engineering design process. Furthermore, little pre-service and in-service professional development exists that will prepare teachers to teach a design process that is fundamentally different from the science teaching process found in typical public schools. This study provides a glimpse into what teachers think happens in engineering design compared to articulated best practices in engineering design.

An Investigation Of The Doctoral Dissertation Literature Review: From The Materials We Use To Prepare Students, To The Materials That Students Prepare, Melynda H. Fitt 2011 Utah State University

An Investigation Of The Doctoral Dissertation Literature Review: From The Materials We Use To Prepare Students, To The Materials That Students Prepare, Melynda H. Fitt

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Practically speaking, a well-conducted review of literature is central to a scholar’s ability to pose pertinent and timely questions within their field. As part of the culminating written assessment of a Ph.D. candidate, the dissertation literature review provides a unique vantage point to explore future scholars’ preparation. In spite of its central role within the research process, research about how future scholars are taught the doctoral competencies necessary to conduct a review of the literature for the dissertation or how the dissertation literature reviews are assessed is limited.

In two separate studies, this research uses the Boote and ...

Connecting Rather Than Colliding: When American And Chinese Rhetorical Styles Meet In The University Classroom, Karen Shea 2011 Johnson & Wales University - Providence

Connecting Rather Than Colliding: When American And Chinese Rhetorical Styles Meet In The University Classroom, Karen Shea

English as a Second Language Faculty Publications & Research

Many American teachers can see differences between the way their domestic and international students organize an argument; fewer would be able to explain these differences. Due to the recent wave of Chinese students enrolling in American universities, many professors are grappling with cultural differences ranging from the unfamiliar classroom behavior to the diverse rhetorical styles of these students. Misunderstandings may form a rift between the students, who write according to their own Eastern rhetorical upbringing, and the professors, who assign and assess the writing based on their Western rhetorical tradition. As a result, many professors are looking for ways to ...

Tennis Professionals Can Help Motivate Young Athletes, Katrina Perlman, Dana Perlman

Dana Perlman

Tennis professionals throughout the United States are given a daunting task of meeting the diverse tennis needs of their athletes. Athletes populate tennis centers with various reasons for playing. For instance, some may want to play at an elite level, while others may desire to simply hit three balls in a row. These diverse motives for participation also apply to youthful athletes. Young tennis players take part in practice sessions and programs for various reasons. Some are made to attend while others possess a perception of being the next Roger Federer or Kim Clijsters.


Getting Open: Games That Teach Spatial Awareness, Connie Collier, Dana Perlman, Jennifer Fisette 2011 University of Wollongong

Getting Open: Games That Teach Spatial Awareness, Connie Collier, Dana Perlman, Jennifer Fisette

Dana Perlman

When we think about children playing games, too often our recollection involves children in a mob-like formation around a soccer ball or basketball while the rest of the court or field is empty. Coaches and teachers primarily focus instruction around on-the-ball skills and tend to overlook the importance of how to engage players in fun game-like practices, which emphasize the tactics of supporting the ball carrier or creating space. In this paper, we offer three modified games that provide students' opportunities to explore methods for creating space, moving to open space, and advancing towards the goal. Each game includes a ...
