El Sindicato Nacional De Trabajadores De La Educación: ¿Organización Gremial O Herramienta Del Estado?, Marion W. Lloyd 2011 National Autonomous University of Mexico

El Sindicato Nacional De Trabajadores De La Educación: ¿Organización Gremial O Herramienta Del Estado?, Marion W. Lloyd

Marion Lloyd

The poor quality of Mexico´s primary and secondary education has often been attributed to the peculiar, corporativist relationship between the national teacher´s union, the Sindicato Nacional de Trabajadores de la Educación (SNTE), and the federal government. That relationship dates to the union´s founding in 1943, during the early years of Mexico´s authoritarian one-party regime (1939-2000). However, the practice by which party bosses trade votes and political favors in return for financial and other concessions, has survived long beyond the restoration of the multiparty system, stymying efforts to improve the quality of education.

The Role Of Student Gender For Determining The Impact Of A Pedagogical Agent, Yanghee Kim, J. Lim

Yanghee Kim

This study was to understand how male and female teenage students reacted differently to the presence of a pedagogical agent (an animated human-like character) in a computer-based algebra-learning environment. The study first examined, in classroom experiments, if learner gender would be a determining factor for the effectiveness of a pedagogical agent on learner attitudes and learning. Next, in-depth interviews inquired into the two groups of students’ perspectives of their agent’s role for their learning and affect.

An Examination Of Influences On Hiring Practices Used To Select Head Coaches In The National Football League From 1991 To 2010, Eric C. Holland 2011 University of South Florida

An Examination Of Influences On Hiring Practices Used To Select Head Coaches In The National Football League From 1991 To 2010, Eric C. Holland

9th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium and Celebration

Managers are often critical to the efficiency and effectiveness of an organization. As a result, organizations should hire individuals that have characteristics that match the needs and expectations of the firm (Wright, McMahan, & McWilliams, 1994). However, the National Football League (NFL) may go against this conventional wisdom. According to experts, the NFL has become a “copycat league” in which teams utilize league trends rather than hiring the most qualified candidate (Greenberg, 2009). To determine the validity of this statement, the study examines the hiring practices of NFL head coaches over the past two decades. By comparing the credentials of new ...


Rivalry Through Games, Casey M. Parent 2011 University of South Florida

Rivalry Through Games, Casey M. Parent

9th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium and Celebration

Subject: History- Severan dynasty

Motivation: As a researcher on the Severan Provincial Coinage database last summer, I became interested in the coinages of two neighboring cities in Cilicia, Anazarbus and Tarsus. Each city advertised festivals and games on their coinage. I noticed that although the themes were similar, the cities seemed to favor different emperors. I wanted to know why they differed in this aspect.

Thesis: Anazarbus and Tarsus competed fiercely with one another for dominance over the koinon of Cilicia; this is evident by examining the numismatic evidence of both cities and their usage of festivals/games on these ...


Sex And Violence: A Way To Hold Women Down, Mary E. Spurlock 2011 University of South Florida

Sex And Violence: A Way To Hold Women Down, Mary E. Spurlock

9th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium and Celebration

Sex and Violence: A Way To Hold Women Down is based on the content of sex and violence in Jacobean drama and how is affected women. Were men intimidated by some of the power that women had? Was it a way to have control over them and hold them down? The goal of my paper is to answer these questions. Sex and violence is something of a taboo nature in how people view it. Sex, violence, and women is something that has always drawn in audiences, but were these women destroyed because men felt threatened by Jacobean women and their ...

A Description Of The Effectiveness Of A Guided Reading Internship Project, Jacqueline Hooten Huntley

Undergraduate Research Conference

The intent of the literacy project during my Internship I for elementary education students is to give teacher candidates the opportunity to work with a guided reading small group. The pre-test, post-test project became an action research study that utilized quantitative data to determine the effectiveness of the guided reading program on the literacy growth of three students. The teacher candidate worked with three randomly assigned students from a first grade classroom in a rural east Texas elementary school twenty minutes a day, three days a week, for a six-week period.

The Effects Of Physical Education Credit Producing Activities On High School Students, Jonathan Denton 2011 Stephen F Austin State University

The Effects Of Physical Education Credit Producing Activities On High School Students, Jonathan Denton

Undergraduate Research Conference

The original intent for this project was to see what summative information could be drawn using the FITNESSGRAM. Researchers wanted to relate the FITNESSGRAM to variables like academic performance, amount of physical education, and the student’s general idea of physical education. Over the past few years, researchers have found that students with a higher score on the FITNESSGRAM have a higher academic score on the T.A.K.S., better attendance, and less behavioral problems. Also, researchers were interested in determining if a participant’s satisfaction level of the physical education experience had any impact on the FITNESSGRAM variables ...
