Negotiating The Cultural Turn As Universities Adopt A Corporate Model In An Economic Downturn, Timothy B. Powell 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Negotiating The Cultural Turn As Universities Adopt A Corporate Model In An Economic Downturn, Timothy B. Powell

Departmental Papers (Religious Studies)

I would like to begin by thanking Jerry McGann for inviting me to engage in this vital discussion. As someone who works with Native American communities, which are rarely represented in forums like this one, it means a great deal to have these indigenous voices recognized and authorized. I would also like to thank Ken Price for his very thoughtful essay. This response seeks to pursue in greater depth an issue raised by Ken’s comparison between the Walt Whitman Archive, a “single author-based” project begun in 1995, and Civil War Washington, a “theme-based” archive currently in development. More specifically ...

Even In Chaos: Education In Times Of Emergency, Kevin M. Cahill, M.D., H. E. Miguel D'Escoto

A Case Study On Sibling Rivalry And The Use Of A Social Skills Training Model, Michelle Maiorano

These were measured by the Sibling Rivalry Questionnaire which the mother filled out before the sessions began and after they were completed. The results did not find a major difference between the pre and post tests. Warmth increased slightly, rivalry decreased slightly, there was no difference in the amount of conflict, and there was a slight decrease in relative status ...


Slogging And Stumbling Toward Social Justice In A Private Elementary School: The Complicated Case Of St. Malachy, Martin Scanlan 2010 Marquette University

Slogging And Stumbling Toward Social Justice In A Private Elementary School: The Complicated Case Of St. Malachy, Martin Scanlan

College of Education Faculty Research and Publications

This case study examines St. Malachy, an urban Catholic elementary school primarily serving children traditionally marginalized by race, class, linguistic heritage, and disability. As a private school, St. Malachy serves the public good by recruiting and retaining such traditionally marginalized students. As empirical studies involving Catholic schools frequently juxtapose them with public schools, the author presents this examination from a different tack. Neither vilifying nor glorifying Catholic schooling, this study critically examines the pursuit of social justice in this school context. Data gathered through a 1-year study show that formal and informal leaders in St. Malachy adapted their governance, aggressively ...

Abstract IMPACT OF ALTERNATIVE FINANCING PROGRAMS ON QUALITY OF LIFE AND EMPLOYMENT OUTCOMES OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES By: Amy Nicole Dye Davis This study investigated the effect of assistive technologies purchased through Alternative Financing Programs (AFP) for individuals with disabilities on quality of life, independence in the home and community, and employment.

The Use Of A Metacognitive Tool In An Online Social Supportive Learning Environment: An Activity Theory Analysis, Ray Earl Martinez 2010 University of Missouri-St. Louis

The Use Of A Metacognitive Tool In An Online Social Supportive Learning Environment: An Activity Theory Analysis, Ray Earl Martinez

Dissertations

This investigation is an exploratory study of the use of a metacognitive software tool in a social supportive learning environment. The tool combined metacognitive knowledge and regulation functionality embedded within the content of an eight week online graduate education course. Twenty-three learners, who were practicing teachers, used the tool. Prior knowledge of metacognition, including responses to the Metacognitive Awareness Inventory (Schraw & Dennison, 1994), was obtained. Prior knowledge of community instructional approaches was also obtained. Learner interviews focused on the mediational aspects of the metacognitive tool and the social supportive learning environment, as well as an evaluation of the tool. Content analysis, combined with an activity theory framework, was used to analyze data. Findings are organized around three main themes: prior knowledge, the usability of the tool from design and technical perspectives, and the effectiveness of the tool related to its design principles. The practicing teachers were found to be knowledgeable about metacognition and community; however, this knowledge did not often translate into successful instruction. Learners found the metacognitive tool easy to use, but had difficulty with its design for conversation. They found activity theory disconnections between the tool and other course tools, and ...

Growth In Students' Conceptions Of Mathematical Induction, John David Gruver 2010 Brigham Young University - Provo

Growth In Students' Conceptions Of Mathematical Induction, John David Gruver

All Theses and Dissertations

While proof and reasoning lie at the core of mathematical practice, how students learn to reason formally and build convincing proofs continues to invite reflection and discussion. To add to this discussion I investigated how three students grew in their conceptions of mathematical induction. While each of the students in the study had different experiences and grew in different ways, the grounded axes (triggering events, personal questions about mathematics, and personal questions about a particular solution) highlighted patterns in the narratives and from these patterns a theoretical perspective emerged. Reflection, both on mathematics in general and about specific problems, was ...
