The Spectre Of Class: Educating And Advising For Self-Efficacy, 2009 Rhode Island College
The Spectre Of Class: Educating And Advising For Self-Efficacy, Mikaila Arthur
Mikaila Mariel Lemonik Arthur
In her essay “The Spectre of Class: Educating and Advising for Self-Efficacy” Mikaila Mariel Lemonik Arthur discusses the importance of building student self-efficacy. However, as Arthur points out, creating an environment where students believe in their capabilities to learn and perform at a particular level is deeply influenced by one’s class background. As Arthur states, “These students have grown up in a culture that values individualism and places responsibility for success and blame for failure squarely on the shoulders of each person.” Arthur speaks more generally about creating self-efficacy and offers insight in how to maneuver around and transcend ...
The Persistence Of Low Expectations In Special Education Law Viewed Through The Lens Of Therapeutic Jurisprduence, Richard Peterson
For more than thirty-five years a paradigm of low expectations has infected efforts to educate children with disabilities and has been a persistent and stubborn obstacle to the successful implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and its predecessor, the Education of All Handicapped Children Act (EAHCA). This dilemma raises questions addressed in this paper: What is meant by low expectations in the context of Special Education Law? What are the root causes of this phenomenon, and what makes it so resistant to change? How does it impede implementation of the IDEA? And lastly, in what ways does ...
The Interface Of Neoliberal Globalization, Science Education And Indigenous African Knowledges In Africa, 2009 Wilfrid Laurier University
The Interface Of Neoliberal Globalization, Science Education And Indigenous African Knowledges In Africa, Edward Shizha
In a globalized neo-colonial world, an insidious and often debilitating crisis of knowledge construction and legitimation does not only continue to undermine the local and indigenous knowledge systems, but it also perpetuates a neo-colonial and oppressive socio-cultural science educational system that debilitates the social and cultural identity of the indigenous African student. As Schissel and Wotherspoon (2003: vii) argue, "Educational relations are critical elements of our humanity and sociability." This paper explores the homogenizing effects of globalization and the oppressive forces of neo-colonialism that continue to work together to privilege "western-based scientific knowledge" at the expense of indigenous knowledge systems ...

Betzi L. Bateman
The purpose of this article was to explore student participation patterns in online discussion boards related to their characteristics and question types.

During the 16 weeks of a course, the participation patterns of 14 students and their 469 posts were analyzed to examine levels of collaboration. Findings suggested that posts stating individual perspectives were dominant regardless of the type of discussion question asked. Higher-order thinking questions yielded more collaborative patterns among students than questions asking the knowledge at ...

Implications Of The Economic Interactions Between Northern And Southern Tribes Of Sudan, 2009 Department of Economics. Al Neelain University, Khartoum, Sudan
Implications Of The Economic Interactions Between Northern And Southern Tribes Of Sudan, Professor Issam Mohamed
Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed
The present paper discusses issues of the tribal interactions living on the borders between North and South Sudan. Fore-sights are looked for, especially after secession. There are multiple ethnic relations and mutual resources collectively utilized. Different tribes live on those resources, in specifics those who depend on a livelihood of herding cattle, camels, sheep and goats. The conceptions of no-borders, free water resources and open range were entrenched for hundreds of years. The sudden realization of necessities of new borders generates revulsion, sense of deprivation and end of traditional life practice. Additionally, development issues are weak with lack of infrastructure ...

Help-Negation And Suicidal Ideation: The Role Of Depression, Anxiety And Hopelessness., Coralie Wilson
Coralie J Wilson
Help-negation is expressed behaviorally by the refusal or avoidance of available help and cognitively by the inverse relationship between self-reported symptoms of psychological distress and help-seeking intentions. The current study is part of a larger multi-cite research program developed and led by the first author. It examines the association between suicidal ideation and intentions to seek help from friends, family and professional mental health sources in a sample of 302 Australian university students. Participants were 77.5% female and aged from 18-25 years old, with 85.4% aged 21 years or younger. Higher levels of suicidal ideation were related to ...
Whole-Mind Teaching And Learning: A Case Study In Engineering, 2009 University of North Florida
Whole-Mind Teaching And Learning: A Case Study In Engineering, Terry Smith, Susan Vasana
Terry L. Smith
Whole-mind Teaching and Learning (WmTL) activities and a case study on WmTL practices are presented in this article. The traditional logical/analytical emphasis of engineering curricula is complemented and enhanced with an intuitive/holistic approach, which implements the following practices: apply art principles; use intuition in design and in results checking; balance horizontal and vertical thinking in problem-solving; and allow time for solitary thinking in concert with supportive/stimulating group discussion. Practice in the case study was conducted by using creativity as one of the criteria in evaluating course projects. Other approaches include a second chance for mid-term exams and ...
Educação Do Olhar: Um Processo Significativo, 2009 Faculdade Sumaré, São Paulo
Educação Do Olhar: Um Processo Significativo, Filipe Celeti
A partir do conceito ausubeliano de aprendizagem significativa é possível tecer um paralelo entre educar o olhar e o conhecimento significativo. O baixo caráter inquietante existente no uso da arte impede que o aluno consiga ter a intenção de atribuir significado ao sensorial. O problema não é apenas o do ensino artístico, pois educar o olhar é educar o sujeito. É necessária uma educação de possibilidades para que, ao ver o mundo, o sujeito (aluno) possa interpretar e significar o que lhe afeta os cinco sentidos.

John A. Henschke EdD
Providing an overview of Brazilian Education is a task that could take volumes to present. Moreover, to do this in a comprehensive way would involve many Brazilians that have been involved with the Brazilian Educational System for many years. There are many facets that would be included in this country's rich history and present manifestation of education and learning. Nonetheless, as a visitor from the United States of America who has been privileged to visit Brazil eight times and conduct various lifelong learning education al programs there, I will attempt in this paper to offer some of my observations ...
