Lessons From The Culturally Diverse Classroom: Intellectual Challenges And Opportunities Of Teaching In The American University, M Laura Barberan Reinares 2010 CUNY Bronx Community College

Lessons From The Culturally Diverse Classroom: Intellectual Challenges And Opportunities Of Teaching In The American University, M Laura Barberan Reinares

Publications and Research

University education in the United States has become an increasingly global environment. In the classrooms of a modern university students and teachers from literally all corners of the world come together and reshape the face of higher education. Without a doubt the multicultural classroom of the 21st century necessitates fresh pedagogical approaches to university instruction that questions both established student and teacher models. This article then ad- dresses intercultural relationships within a multicultural university classroom setting and the resulting changes for the conceptualization of student and teacher roles. While the essay raises interdisciplinary and multicultural issues we wish to encourage ...

The Future Of Natural Selection Knowledge Measurement: A Reply To Anderson Et Al. (2010), Ross Nehm, Irvin Sam Schonfeld 2010 SUNY Stony Brook

The Future Of Natural Selection Knowledge Measurement: A Reply To Anderson Et Al. (2010), Ross Nehm, Irvin Sam Schonfeld

Publications and Research

The development of rich, reliable, and robust measures of the composition, structure, and stability of student thinking about core scientific ideas (such as natural selection) remains a complex challenge facing science educators. In their recent article (Nehm & Schonfeld 2008), the authors explored the strengths, weaknesses, and insights provided by a detailed exploration of three commonly used measures of student thinking about natural selection in a large sample of underrepresented minority students. One of their core findings was that all of the tools they studied--including the CINS--have strengths and weaknesses that must be carefully taken into consideration by those who employ ...


Job Satisfaction Of Naia Head Coaches At Small Faith-Based Colleges: The Teacher-Coach Model, Craig L. Stiemsma 2010 Dordt College

Job Satisfaction Of Naia Head Coaches At Small Faith-Based Colleges: The Teacher-Coach Model, Craig L. Stiemsma

Faculty Work Comprehensive List

The head coaches at smaller colleges usually have other job responsibilities that include teaching, along with the responsibilities of coaching, recruiting, scheduling, and other coaching-related jobs. There is often a dual role involved for these coaches who try to juggle two different jobs that sometimes require different skill sets and involve different responsibilities that may lead to role conflict. The primary purpose of this study was to determine the level of job satisfaction of coaches in the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC). This study also sought to determine if there were differences in coaches' levels of job satisfaction based on ...


Increasing Student-Teacher Interactions At An Urban Commuter Campus Through Instant Messaging And Online Office Hours, Nathan H. Lents, Oscar E. Cifuentes 2010 CUNY John Jay College

Increasing Student-Teacher Interactions At An Urban Commuter Campus Through Instant Messaging And Online Office Hours, Nathan H. Lents, Oscar E. Cifuentes

Publications and Research

Encouraging first year undergraduate students in large lecture-hall classes to seek out and actively engage their professors is a perennial problem in science education. This problem is especially acute for commuter and minority populations. Thus, because personal relationships between students and professors are well known to promote student learning and academic success, fostering new ways to connect students and faculty is essential for reducing attrition at inner-city colleges. In the current study, we demonstrate that the use of instant messaging (IM) is highly effective in fostering student-teacher interactions in the lecture-hall setting of an introductory major-level biology course at John ...

Do Bans On Affirmative Action Hurt Minority Students? Evidence From The Texas Top 10% Plan, Kalena E. Cortes 2010 Syracuse University

Do Bans On Affirmative Action Hurt Minority Students? Evidence From The Texas Top 10% Plan, Kalena E. Cortes

Upjohn Institute Working Papers

In light of the recent bans on affirmative action in higher education, this paper provides new evidence on the effects of alternative admissions policies on the persistence and college completion of minority students. I find that the change from affirmative action to the Top 10% Plan in Texas decreased both retention and graduation rates of lower-ranked minority students. Results show that both fall-to-fall freshmen retention and six-year college graduation of seconddecile minority students decreased, respectively, by 2.4 and 3.3 percentage points. The effect of the change in admissions policy was slightly larger for minority students in the third ...

What Training Do Rochester-Area Special Education Co-Teachers Receive In Co-Teaching?, Meghan Marie Alkire 2010 The College at Brockport

What Training Do Rochester-Area Special Education Co-Teachers Receive In Co-Teaching?, Meghan Marie Alkire

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

The goal for this study was to create a list of techniques for co-teachers based on the components of co-teaching for which the co-teachers feel least prepared for. In order to do this, teachers completed a survey to determine how prepared they feel to teach in a co-teaching classroom. The data was collected from special education teachers who are co-teaching currently in a Rochester City School. The techniques for co-teachers would address what training is needed for co-teaching to help strength co-teaching in the classroom.


I Want To Be My Own Person: The Meaning-Making And Psychosocial Processes Of Legacy Students At Bucknell University, Jarrett B. Warshaw 2010 Bucknell University

I Want To Be My Own Person: The Meaning-Making And Psychosocial Processes Of Legacy Students At Bucknell University, Jarrett B. Warshaw

Master’s Theses

This study examined the meaning-making and psychosocial processes of five female legacy students at Bucknell University, each of whom having had at least one parent graduate from the institution. With a research philosophy, design, and methodology rooted in qualitative inquiry and phenomenology, inductive data analysis led to three primary categories that underscored legacy identity development. The first, Paradox of Influence and Identity, revealed through six themes nuanced experiences of separation-individuation. Second, Teaching and Learning, comprised of five themes, illuminated the impact of family — and of Bucknell parent alumni in particular — on their children’s internal working models. Lastly, Bucknell — the ...

Involving And Engaging Parents Of Children With Ieps, Kathryn Underwood 2010 Ryerson University

Involving And Engaging Parents Of Children With Ieps, Kathryn Underwood

Exceptionality Education International

This study explored parents’ views of the educational experience of children with Individual Education Plans. The research goal was to determine how parents are meaningfully involved and engaged in the development and monitoring of educa-tion programs for their children. The primary data source for the study was 31 interviews with parents, analysed using qualitative thematic analysis; additional data came from parent questionnaires, which provided further information about parents’ experiences. This mixed methods study describes the nature of parent in-volvement and engagement in schools, particularly in Individual Education Plan development and implementation. The study also examined how parent involve-ment and engagement ...

Conflict Interpretation: A Comparison Of Canadian And Italian Aggressive And Non-Aggressive Youth, Andrea Smorti, Enrica Ciucci, Anne Mckeough Mckeough, Jennifer Malcolm, Dawn Bremner

Exceptionality Education International

The impact of persistent aggression on youths’ social and psychological well being is well documented. What is less well understood is the shaping effect of cultural differences on how such conflict is experienced and responded to. In this study, we asked youth to write a story about a conflict they experienced and describe their associated feelings. Participants included Canadian and Italian girls and boys from grades 4 and 7 who were rated by their teachers as either aggressive or non-aggressive. Results indicated that although there were no significant main effects for behavioural group or country in the description of the ...


Interdisciplinary Theoretical Foundations For Literacy Teaching And Learning, Ruth Farrar, K. S. Al-Qatawneh 2010 Bridgewater State University

Interdisciplinary Theoretical Foundations For Literacy Teaching And Learning, Ruth Farrar, K. S. Al-Qatawneh

Elementary and Early Childhood Education Faculty Publications

This article presents an interdisciplinary approach to literacy teaching and learning. The approach views literacy as involving numerous functions, including linguistic, psychological, cognitive, social, and critical functions. Research on the teaching and learning of literacy that underlies the model is discussed first. The interdisciplinary approach is defined and discussed next. The article concludes with a discussion of conclusions and implications for literacy education.


Who Helps The Helper? Lessons On Grieving, Suanne Maurer-Starks, Kimberly A. Wise, James E. Leone, Jayne Kitsos 2010 Bridgewater State University

Who Helps The Helper? Lessons On Grieving, Suanne Maurer-Starks, Kimberly A. Wise, James E. Leone, Jayne Kitsos

Movement Arts, Health Promotion and Leisure Studies Faculty Publications

Context: Grief is something that will touch all of us. We expect loss to occur in our personal lives and seem to be somewhat prepared for how to cope with it when it happens. In the profession of athletic training, we may not expect loss to occur as readily–especially if we are working with a young, seemingly healthy population. As such, when an athlete, student, or colleague suffers a catastrophic injury, illness, or death, we may not be able to process the loss and be left with unresolved grief.

Objective: The purpose of this article is to review theories ...


In Praise Of The Saints: Introducing Medieval Hagiography Into The British Literature Survey, John P. Sexton 2010 Bridgewater State University

In Praise Of The Saints: Introducing Medieval Hagiography Into The British Literature Survey, John P. Sexton

English Faculty Publications

Despite increased interest in hagiographic writing among scholars of early literature in the last few decades, serious study of saints’ lives in the undergraduate classroom remains rare. To some degree, this is a result of poor representation in the leading anthologies,[1]but another contributing factor has been the perception of a distinction between hagiographic and other medieval writing it terms of genre or of literary value. Such distinctions, however, are modern inventions, and do not accurately reflect the medieval reader or writer’s view. Nor is the inclusion of the literature alongside the expected “great works” difficult or jarring ...

Parenting Self-Efficacy And Parenting Practices Over Time In Mexican American Families, Larry E. Dumka, Nancy A. Gonzales, Lorey A. Wheeler, Roger E. Millsap 2010 University of Arizona

Parenting Self-Efficacy And Parenting Practices Over Time In Mexican American Families, Larry E. Dumka, Nancy A. Gonzales, Lorey A. Wheeler, Roger E. Millsap

Faculty Publications from Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families, and Schools

Drawing on social cognitive theory, this study used a longitudinal cross-lagged panel design and a structural equation modeling approach to evaluate parenting self-efficacy's reciprocal and causal associations with parents' positive control practices over time to predict adolescents' conduct problems. Data were obtained from teachers, mothers, and adolescents in 189 Mexican American families living in the southwest U.S. After accounting for contemporaneous reciprocal relationships between parenting self-efficacy (PSE) and positive control, results indicated that parenting self-efficacy predicted future positive control practices rather than the reverse. PSE also showed direct effects on decreased adolescent conduct problems. PSE functioned in an ...
