MA TESOL Collection
In this autoethnographic metareflection, the author, an English as a Second Language (ESOL) teacher, demonstrates how she is working to develop a personalized and systematic approach to journaling as a reflective teaching practice. A self-identified “crisis journaler” for over two decades, the author argues that her journal entries, filled with vented frustrations and attempts to figure out life’s challenges, are part of a professional ongoing, long-term data collection process. The author shows how keeping written records of her experiences has produced the important documents that can now facilitate her personal and professional reflection. Using multiple approaches, the author models ...

A Guided Orientation Process For Online Adult Learners, 2021 The University of Southern Mississippi
A Guided Orientation Process For Online Adult Learners, Shana L. Palla
School of Education Doctoral Projects
To the MS in Applied Statistics, Analytics & Data Science program at the University of Kansas, the orientation process, between accepting an offer of admission and starting the first day of classes, takes approximately 7 steps. Students to this program, typically online non-traditional working professionals, were sent an email with directions on how to complete the steps, and the students self-guided their way through the process using the email. The steps must be completed in a specific order and some steps require overnight processing before the next step can be initiated. When students were unable to complete the process on their ...
Parental Engagement In The Transition To College, 2021 The University of Southern Mississippi
Parental Engagement In The Transition To College, Casey M. Henceroth
School of Education Doctoral Projects
Increased parental involvement with children in college has been attributed to rising higher education costs, an increase in technology usage and communication, a generational shift in parenting style with increased closeness and involvement at the primary and secondary education levels, and the growing number of college students whose parents attended college. Some higher education professionals are concerned this increased parental engagement has a negative impact on college student growth and maturity, while others see benefits to students from a developmental standpoint. While there has been increased scholarly attention over the previous two decades about the growing involvement of parents on ...

Confidence Intervals Of Covid-19 Vaccine Efficacy Rates, 2021 LaGuardia Community College, CUNY
Confidence Intervals Of Covid-19 Vaccine Efficacy Rates, Frank Wang
This tutorial uses publicly available data from drug makers and the Food and Drug Administration to guide learners to estimate the confidence intervals of COVID-19 vaccine efficacy rates with a Bayesian framework. Under the classical approach, there is no probability associated with a parameter, and the meaning of confidence intervals can be misconstrued by inexperienced students. With Bayesian statistics, one can find the posterior probability distribution of an unknown parameter, and state the probability of vaccine efficacy rate, which makes the communication of uncertainty more flexible. We use a hypothetical example and a real baseball example to guide readers to ...

A Teacher's Guide To Plurilingual Pedaogy, 2021 SIT Graduate Institute/SIT Study Abroad
A Teacher's Guide To Plurilingual Pedaogy, Elisabeth Wichser-Krajcik
MA TESOL Collection
Language teaching practices have been dominated by monolingual, deficit approaches in which students are expected to compartmentalize languages, ignore prior knowledge, and emulate how natives speak the target language—though there have also been many teachers who have challenged these approaches through the years. Plurilingualism and plurilingual pedagogy reject such ideas and practices and instead seek to cultivate linguistic repertoires (including partial or uneven skills across languages), engage prior knowledge and lived experience, and develop metalinguistic and metacognitive competencies. Drawing on decades of research in applied linguistics and associated fields, plurilingual pedagogy aims to teach language in a way that ...
The Effects Of The Superwoman Schema On African American Women Receiving Their Graduate Degree At Rowan University While Also Holding An Assistantship, Corrine Smith
Theses and Dissertations
As an African American or Black woman, there is an expectation to be strong at all times. They are often glorified for their resiliency. Unfortunately, that strength and the expectation of it, can prove to be detrimental to African American or Black women's health. The Superwoman Schema, originally studied in 2010 by Woods-Giscomb, is the double edge sword that is handed to African American or Black women at a young age. The purpose of this qualitative study was to expand Wood-Giscomb's research by examining the perceptions of the impact of the Superwoman Schema on African American or Black ...

Using Gamification To Teach Foundational Fractions In The Third Grade: Year One, 2021 Kean University
Using Gamification To Teach Foundational Fractions In The Third Grade: Year One, Makeba Mccray
Schools face an instructional dilemma with how to create a motivational environment where fractions are fun, interactive, and induce problem-solving skills through real-time application. The concept of gamification has been utilized in business for marketing, employee training, customer retention, health, and fitness with much success. How can primary educational institutions harness the potential of gamification to close academic gaps or prevent stopgaps? This situation is particularly challenging at this level because there has to be a balance between interaction, gamification, and content delivery; while also providing effective instructional learning objectives for knowledge mastery without overloading students with information and digital ...

Impacts Of Technology Skills On Generic Job Satisfaction, And Assessment Of Training Needs: A Case Of Pakistani Librarians, Asad Khan
Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)
Since modern librarians are urged to acquire technological skills, thus objectives of this study are; 1) to examine whether or not the acquisition of such skills affects their generic job satisfaction (GJS) and; 2) to identify the training needs. To this end, twelve research hypotheses were formulated indicating the relationship of technology skills with GJS. The findings revealed significant effects of technology functional and professional skills on GJS and accordingly, all hypotheses (H1-H12) are supported. Further, Information Assurance and Security Skills were established as the principal predictor of GJS whereas Library Content Management System skills as the ...
Dnp Final Report: Reducing The Rate Of Falls With A Stuctured Fall Program, 2021 University of Texas at Tyler
Dnp Final Report: Reducing The Rate Of Falls With A Stuctured Fall Program, Elanda L. Douglas
DNP Final Reports
Background: Fall rates continue to be a significant problem in health care facilities despite all the research and tool kits created to prevent falls. Hospitals that have successfully reduced fall rates find it challenging to sustain a reduction in the fall rates. During hospitalizations, 3%-20% of patients fall, with 30%-50% resulting in injury (Joint Commission, [JC], 2015).
Internal Evidence: Despite Medical City Alliance (MCA) having an evidence-based fall program, the fall rate has not decreased. Falls are one of the quality measures identified at the division level that needs improvement.
PICOT: In adult patients in a progressive care ...
