The Trajectory Of Change For Children And Youth In Residential Treatment, J. Noftle, Steven Cook, Alan Leschied, Jeff St. Pierre, Shannon Stewart, Andrew Johnson 2011 The University of Western Ontario

The Trajectory Of Change For Children And Youth In Residential Treatment, J. Noftle, Steven Cook, Alan Leschied, Jeff St. Pierre, Shannon Stewart, Andrew Johnson

Andrew M. Johnson

This study examined the symptom response trajectories for 225 children and youth throughout a period of residential treatment. With the 10-item Conners' Global Index (CGI) as the primary outcome measure, assessments were completed on a bi-weekly basis during the average 4 month stay within the youth's residential treatment. Clients demonstrated an ongoing reduction of symptoms, and the severity of baseline symptoms influenced the trajectory of the symptom reduction. In addition, symptom reduction was characterized as logarithmic, particularly when controlling for the baseline severity of symptoms. Implications of these findings for administrators, practitioners, and researchers of residential treatment are discussed.


Student Activism And Curricular Change In Higher Education, Mikaila Arthur 2011 Rhode Island College

Student Activism And Curricular Change In Higher Education, Mikaila Arthur

Mikaila Mariel Lemonik Arthur

While higher education is still far from universal in the United States, it plays an increasingly large role in shaping our collective understanding of what knowledge counts as legitimate and important. Therefore, understanding the college curriculum and how it is changed and shaped helps us to understand the overall dynamics of knowledge in contemporary society. This book considers the emergence of three curricular fields that have developed and spread over the past half century in American higher education - Women's studies, Asian American studies and Queer/LGBT studies. It details the broader history of their development as knowledge fields and ...

Dr Julie Kos

This report covers the main phase of the ‘Quality of Education in Madrasah’ (QEM) study. The study aimed to provide high quality research into various dimensions of quality of education in Madrasah in Indonesia. The focus of the study was on Year 9 students in Madrasah Tsanawiyah (MTs; Islamic Junior Secondary School). Quality of education was measured through: (1) level of student achievement, comparing three regions in the country and to some extent using international benchmarks, as well as the identification of variables that are linked to achievement; (2) students’ views of their schooling experience; and (3) the extent to ...

Television, Language, And Literacy Practices In Sudanese Refugee Families: “I Learned How To Spell English On Channel 18”, Annie Moses, Kristen Perry

Annie M. Moses

This ethnographic study explored the ways in which media, particularly television, connected with English language and literacy practices among Sudanese refugees in Michigan. Three families with young children participated in this study. Data collection included participant observation, interviews, and collection of artifacts over 18 months, with a focus on television events as the units of analysis. Data analysis focused on television practices connected with literacy practices for adults and children. Results indicated that television offered important cultural connections with participants' beliefs, values, and attitudes regarding their Sudanese heritage, the new U.S. context, and religious practices. Both adults and children ...

Teacher Support - An Exploration Of How Foundation-Phase Teachers Facilitate Language Skills, Anna-Maria Wium, Brenda Louw 2011 Unversity of Pretoria

Teacher Support - An Exploration Of How Foundation-Phase Teachers Facilitate Language Skills, Anna-Maria Wium, Brenda Louw

Brenda Louw

The role of speech-language therapists (SLTs) has been redefined by White Paper 6, which emphasizes the role of support to both teachers and learners. SLTs have expert knowledge and skills pertaining to communication and language, and therefore have much to contribute to the process of learning in teaching. This article builds on a previous article published in the 2010 edition of the journal, which reported on the process of supporting teachers to facilitate listening, language and numeracy skills in semi-rural and urban (township) contexts. In this follow-up article the focus is on the qualitative findings obtained from a specific section ...


Effects Of Multicollinearity On The Estimation Of Macroeconomic Variables: Using Data From Sudan, Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed 2011 Department of Economics. Al Neelain University, Khartoum, Sudan

Effects Of Multicollinearity On The Estimation Of Macroeconomic Variables: Using Data From Sudan, Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed

Professor Issam A.W. Mohamed

The problem of multicollinearity in the assessments of coefficients is well established. However, it is rarely researched in the estimations of macroeconomic variables and economic performance of developing countries. Predicatively, it has impacts on the estimations of coefficients that should be used in economic decisions, strategic planning and if researchers are more industrious estimations of monetary supplies and demands. All such parameters are very basic and essential in economic plannings and their applications should be done not only in research but in ground applications of the specialized authorities, e.g., Ministries of Finance, Central Banks, Pricing Units, etc. However, that ...


Biodepollution Of Wastewater Containing Phenolic Compounds From Leather Industry By Plant Peroxidases, Mamounata DIAO, Nafissetou OUEDRAOGO, Lamine Baba-Moussa, Paul W. SAVADOGO, Georges N'Guessan AMANI, Mamoudou H. DICKO Prof. 2011 University of Abomey-Calavi, Benin

Biodepollution Of Wastewater Containing Phenolic Compounds From Leather Industry By Plant Peroxidases, Mamounata Diao, Nafissetou Ouedraogo, Lamine Baba-Moussa, Paul W. Savadogo, Georges N'Guessan Amani, Mamoudou H. Dicko Prof.

Pr. Mamoudou H. DICKO, PhD

This study deals with the use of peroxidases (POXs) from Allium sativum, Ipomoea batatas, Raphanus sativus and Sorghum bicolor to catalyze the degradation of free phenolic compounds as well as phenolic compounds contained in wastewater from leather industry. Secretory plant POXs were able to catalyze the oxidation of gallic acid, ferulic acid, 4-hydroxybenzoic acid, pyrogallol and 1,4-tyrosol prepared in ethanol 2% (v:v). Efficiency of peroxidase catalysis depends strongly on the chemical nature of phenolic substrates and on the botanical source of the enzymes. It appeared that POX from Raphanus sativus had the highest efficiency. Results show that POXs ...

What Do We Mean By Mathematical Proof?, Todd CadwalladerOlsker 2011 California State University, Fullerton

What Do We Mean By Mathematical Proof?, Todd Cadwalladerolsker

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

Mathematical proof lies at the foundations of mathematics, but there \ are several notions of what mathematical proof is, or might be. In fact, the idea of mathematical proof continues to evolve. In this article, I review the body of literature that argues that there are at least two widely held meanings of proof, and that the standards of proof are negotiated and agreed upon by the members of mathematical communities. The formal view of proof is contrasted with the view of proofs as arguments intended to convince a reader. These views are examined in the context of the various roles ...
