Rehabilitating Closed Schools: A Daunting Challenge For Pakistan, Wasim Qazi, Khalid Rawat, Shams Hamid 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Rehabilitating Closed Schools: A Daunting Challenge For Pakistan, Wasim Qazi, Khalid Rawat, Shams Hamid

Wasim Qazi

There are 6034 non-operational schools in Pakistan's southern province of Sindh further complicating the work of the donor agencies; more than half of these non-operational schools (3843) only exist on papers. These shadow schools exist only to usurp international aid earmarked for education. Our research shows that proximity to the population; unavailability of teachers; and lack of infrastructure are some of the fundamental causes driving the closure of more than thirteen percent of schools. Our position is that a large number of these schools can be rehabilitated but that requires a three-phased plan. If implemented, proposed plan would enhance ...


Rights Of Student Teachers And The Law., Zorka Karanxha, Perry Zirkel 2009 University of South Florida

Rights Of Student Teachers And The Law., Zorka Karanxha, Perry Zirkel

Zorka Karanxha

Student teaching is a high-stakes enterprise, representing the culmination of a student’s teacher preparation program and, for the university-approval route, the prerequisite to teacher certification. Legislation in each of the 50 states provides institutions of higher education with express or implied authority for this purpose. On occasion, the representatives of the sponsoring institution of higher education or the cooperating school district make a decision that deprives college of education students of commencing or completing student teaching, thereby leading to law suits.

From Bereavement To Assessment" The Transformation Of A Regional Comprehensive University, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, Rose Perrine, Paula Kopacz, Dorie Combs, Onda Bennett, Stacey Street, E.J. Keeley 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

From Bereavement To Assessment" The Transformation Of A Regional Comprehensive University, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, Rose Perrine, Paula Kopacz, Dorie Combs, Onda Bennett, Stacey Street, E.J. Keeley

Charlie Sweet

This is no conventional book about assessment. It presents the unvarnished first-person accounts of fourteen faculty and administrators about how they grappled, and engaged, with assessment and how – despite misgivings and an often-contentious process – they were able to gain the collaboration of their peers as the benefits for student learning became evident. This is a book for skeptical faculty, for those who have been tasked to spearhead their institution’s call to create a culture of assessment; and, on campuses where assessment has been widely accepted and implemented, for those who now need to ensure this commitment will endure. For ...


Pre-Conference Session: Moving Cfgs Online. Workshop, Julie Moore 2009 Kennesaw State University

Pre-Conference Session: Moving Cfgs Online. Workshop, Julie Moore

Julie A. Moore

This session is for experienced facilitators who are interested in exploring the benefits, strategies and challenges of conducting CFGs in an online environment. While CFGs have traditionally been face-to-face communities, online environments offer great potential for supporting teachers who are geographically dispersed or who desire a learning community outside of their local building. Facilitating in such environments requires an expansion of skill sets beyond those of face-to-face facilitation. Participants in this pre-conference will analyze successful online sessions, discuss strategies for facilitating online CFGs, and share specific web sites that can host online CFGs for free.

Cognitive Processing Deficits And Students With Specific Learning Disabilities: A Selective Meta-Analysis Of The Literature, Evelyn Johnson, Michael Humphrey, Daryl Mellard, Kari Woods, H. Swanson 2009 Boise State University

Cognitive Processing Deficits And Students With Specific Learning Disabilities: A Selective Meta-Analysis Of The Literature, Evelyn Johnson, Michael Humphrey, Daryl Mellard, Kari Woods, H. Swanson

Michael Humphrey

Many practitioners and state education agency staff would likely agree that the accuracy and consistency of specific learning disability (SLD) eligibility decisions is in need of improvement. One component of the SLD definition particularly controversial in the identification procedures is the evaluation of cognitive processes, primarily due to a lack of information about the role they might play in informing an SLD diagnosis and eligibility for special education services. A meta-analysis of 32 studies was conducted to examine the cognitive processing differences between students with SLD and typically achieving peers. The analysis found moderately large to large effect sizes in ...


Multiple-Choice Questions Compared To Short-Answer Response : Which Assesses Understanding Of Chemistry More Effectively?, Ross Hudson 2009 ACER

Multiple-Choice Questions Compared To Short-Answer Response : Which Assesses Understanding Of Chemistry More Effectively?, Ross Hudson

Dr Ross Hudson

The research inquires into the effectiveness of the two predominant forms of questions that are used on the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) Victoria Chemistry examination. These are multiple- choice questions and short-answer questions. This research examines not only the style of chemistry question but also the content type examined (recall and application questions) along with gender differences in students' responses to such questions. The research involved three phases, i) analysis of five years results from the VCE Chemistry examinations, ii) class trial testing students of both genders with structured questions that examined the same material content with each type ...

Conteted Heritage In The Ancient City Of Peace, William Feighery 2009 Selected Works

Conteted Heritage In The Ancient City Of Peace, William Feighery

William Feighery

As the imperial capital of thirteen dynasties Xi’an, formerly known as Chang’an (eternal peace), houses a legacy of many of the most important periods of Chinese history and is one of the great archeological centers of the world. This legacy of political and cultural dominance places Xi’an at the forefront of debates on cultural heritage and its role in the evolution of China in the 21st century. Xi’an is currently under a triad of influences from processes of globalization, urban transition and domestic and international tourism. In recent decades and particularly since the dawn on the ...


Triple Play, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, William Phillips 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Triple Play, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, William Phillips

Charlie Sweet

“Triple Play” presents three procedural techniques nicely reduced to related mnemonics for making the most of class time by embedding three different approaches to assessing students’ learning right there in the class that day. The fruits of such exercises doubtless will give faculty who try them important information on what’s working with their students and what is not, but a point the authors don’t emphasize is that the exercises will also compel students to become conscious of where they stand in their own learning as learning rather than as a response to how they felt about the class ...
