Best Practices In Teaching K-12 Online: Lessons Learned From Michigan Virtual School Teachers, Meredith DiPietro, Richard E. Ferdig, Erik W. Black, Megan Presto 2010 Kent State University - Kent Campus

Best Practices In Teaching K-12 Online: Lessons Learned From Michigan Virtual School Teachers, Meredith Dipietro, Richard E. Ferdig, Erik W. Black, Megan Presto

Lifespan Development and Educational Sciences Publications

Virtual schools are rising in popularity and presence. Unfortunately, there is a relative dearth of research related to teaching and learning in virtual schools. Although there are numerous handbooks addressing teaching online, there is little research on successful online teaching in the K-12 arena. Much of the existing research focused on teaching online is rooted in face-to-face content, not focused on content areas, built upon a post-secondary audience, or fails to use data from the teachers themselves to triangulate findings. This article reports on a study of 16 virtual school teachers from the Michigan Virtual School (MVS). It reports on ...


Story Mapping Used To Support Struggling Readers And Writers With Behavioral Concerns, Jessica A. Burger 2010 St. John Fisher College

Story Mapping Used To Support Struggling Readers And Writers With Behavioral Concerns, Jessica A. Burger

Education Masters

This study examines the use of story mapping to help students with Emotional and Behavior Disorders. Story mapping is a strategy used while reading that helps students to think and write about the story in an organized and focused manner. This study was conducted during the school day and the two students were pulled out for a half an hour a day on nine occasions. The students took turns reading from books on their instructional level and would fill in the components of the story map. Their retelling abilities were assessed using the Qualitative Reading Inventory (QRI) before beginning work ...

Factors Affecting The Success Of Robinson Scholars, Amanda Michele Dunn 2010 University of Kentucky

Factors Affecting The Success Of Robinson Scholars, Amanda Michele Dunn

MPA/MPP Capstone Projects

The Robinson Scholars Program was created by the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees as an effort to combat historically high rates of poverty and low rates of educational attainment in Kentucky’s Appalachian region. The first class was selected in 1997 and was part of a broader effort to improve community and economic development in eastern Kentucky.

The Robinson Scholars Program provides financial and academic support for potential first-generation college students from the program’s 29-county service area. Scholars are selected in the eighth grade and are provided with enrichment opportunities and college preparation activities throughout their high school ...


Assessment Of The Neighborhood, Housing, Family, And Personal Characteristics That Affect Whether Students Drop Out Of High School, Montara Renée November 2010 University of Kentucky

Assessment Of The Neighborhood, Housing, Family, And Personal Characteristics That Affect Whether Students Drop Out Of High School, Montara Renée November

MPA/MPP Capstone Projects

This paper seeks to present research that will allow education officials to identify and target individuals who are likely to drop out of high school. By simultaneously using neighborhood, housing, family, and personal factors to identify at-risk students, education officials can link students to the social programs they need to meet their individual needs. Parent’s educational level had statistically significant effect on whether students dropped out of high school. The lower the education level the more likely a student will drop out of school. Parents who are high school dropouts are more likely to earn less and their children ...


Instrumental Music And Act Scores, Jerry Price 2010 University of Kentucky

Instrumental Music And Act Scores, Jerry Price

MPA/MPP Capstone Projects

Allocation of dwindling resources force public administrators to make choices and instrumental music program budgets can be cut or even eliminated by state agencies or school districts. Whether or not this is good policy will be examined by the collection and analysis of school level data. Public school instrumental music programs are expensive to operate and maintain, involve specialized, highly-qualified instructors and require an inventory of instruments to ensure that students with low incomes will be able to participate. Families in high income situations may be able to afford private instrumental music lessons for their students and may be indifferent ...

Integrating Contemplative Practice Into The Undergraduate Pursuit Of Finding And Following An Intuitive Call, Jan M. Wall 2010 Lesley University

Integrating Contemplative Practice Into The Undergraduate Pursuit Of Finding And Following An Intuitive Call, Jan M. Wall

Educational Studies Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to investigate the integration of contemplative practice into higher education. The intention of such integration would be to facilitate a students ability to hear and follow an intuitive call. Intuition was defined as an immediate, unmediated or tacit way of knowing; calls or callings as inner directives towards meaningful life pursuits. Intuition and calls were seen as overlapping and interchangeable terms. The literature review for this study explored relevant trends in higher education. One trend involves academic shifts towards professional readiness, or marketable skills, away from personal quests (such as following a call). Paradoxically ...


A Study Of The Effects Of Peaceable Schools Curricula On Student Achievement In An Urban Middle School, David Nurenberg 2010 Lesley University

A Study Of The Effects Of Peaceable Schools Curricula On Student Achievement In An Urban Middle School, David Nurenberg

Educational Studies Dissertations

Given that a review of the available literature suggests links between the problems of school safety (both physical and emotional) and low student achievement, effective school reform needs to address both issues simultaneously. Most education reformers, though doubtless concerned about safety, have, in the wake of the outcomes-based movement in American education, focused mainly on raising student test scores through increasingly standardizing school structures. As well intentioned as outcomes-based reformers may be, they are only seeing part of the puzzle of student achievement. There exists a wealth of programs and curricula that have been shown through research to reduce school ...


Authority, Leadership, And Peacemaking: The Role Of The Diasporas: A Pilot Study Of A Group Relations Conference: A Dissertation, Tracy Wallach 2010 Lesley University

Authority, Leadership, And Peacemaking: The Role Of The Diasporas: A Pilot Study Of A Group Relations Conference: A Dissertation, Tracy Wallach

Educational Studies Dissertations

Research suggests that conflicts are much more likely to re-ignite in societies which have large Diaspora communities in the United States. This study examines the role of American Jewish, Arab, and other Middle Eastern Diaspora communities in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and addresses the generally neglected role of trauma and emotions in perpetuating conflict.

The project employed group relations conference methodology to conduct the inquiry. A group relations lens allows one to look at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at multiple levels: on the psychological level (looking at issues of trauma, identity, collective narrative, emotions and unconscious processes); on the social level (looking ...


Literature In Translation: Teaching Issues And Reading Practices, Carol Maier, Françoise Massardier-Kenney 2010 Kent State University

Literature In Translation: Teaching Issues And Reading Practices, Carol Maier, Françoise Massardier-Kenney

Translation Studies

New pedagogy for studying literature in translation

In the last several decades, literary works from around the world have made their way onto the reading lists of American university and college courses in an increasingly wide variety of disciplines. This is a cause for rejoicing. Through works in translation, students in our mostly monolingual society are at last becoming acquainted with the multilingual and multicultural world in which they will live and work. Many instructors have expanded their reach to teach texts that originate from across the globe. Unfortunately, literature in English translation is frequently taught as if it had ...


Rethinking Teacher Education: Teacher Education In The Knowledge Age, David Lynch, Richard Smith 2010 School of Education (EdDep)

Rethinking Teacher Education: Teacher Education In The Knowledge Age, David Lynch, Richard Smith

David Lynch

This book, takes our ideas about teaching and teacher education a step further beyond our previously published ideas about teaching and teacher education . In writing the book we have a specific intent: to rethink teacher education for the benefit of students and their communities and the teaching profession. We aim to help people create new mindsets and build knowledge about what is meant by ‘to teach’ and ‘to learn’ in the 2000s; to encourage teachers and teacher educators to move past what they presently believe pedagogical work to be, and to enable teaching to take its place increasingly within the ...

Global Discipline Confusion In Management And Business Related Doctorate Programmes, Peter Miller 2010 Southern Cross University

Global Discipline Confusion In Management And Business Related Doctorate Programmes, Peter Miller

Southern Cross Business School

Professional doctorate programmes have recently emerged around the globe as an alternative to the more traditional research based doctoral programmes and have expanded rapidly to the point where professional doctorates are now the dominant form of doctorate education. This paper aims to shed some light on the growth of professional doctorates and to make some comparisons of professional doctorate programmes with traditional research based doctorate programmes by reporting on research undertaken in Australia. The research demonstrates confusion in the discipline of doctorates globally.

The research includes a case study on a globally significant Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) programme to ...

Appreciating The “A” Word Putting A Plan In Action, Maira Bundza, Laura Darrah, Brad Dennis

Assessment in Action Conference

Non-degree awarding units are actively engaged in assessments like surveys, focus groups and individual conversations. Framing those in an assessment plan is a chance to add intentionality to the process. A plan provides guidance, connects assessment to your goals, identifies missing areas, and outlines how the results will be used and more. Join us to see two different approaches to starting a plan and have some in-session work time to draft something to take back to your department. Examples of each approach will be shared.

The Give Away Spirit: Reaching A Shared Vision Of Ethical Indigenous Research Relationships, Jioanna Carjuzaa, J. Kay Fenimore-Smith 2010 Montana State University-Bozeman

The Give Away Spirit: Reaching A Shared Vision Of Ethical Indigenous Research Relationships, Jioanna Carjuzaa, J. Kay Fenimore-Smith

Journal of Educational Controversy

This paper discusses the dilemma that emerges when codified protocols taken from dominant research paradigms are applied to research in Indigenous communities. We examine the underlying beliefs and assumptions of research paradigms, both Western and Indigenous, and explore how this incompatibility can be reconciled. We seek to reframe paradigmatic structures to reflect the values and beliefs of Indigenous peoples so that the Indian/non-Indian divide is bridged with a culturally responsive research paradigm. This process raises a number of ethical issues related to voice and privilege that we believe have to be resolved in order to be inclusive of multiple ...
