Millennial Sex Habits: The Sexual Attitudes And Behaviors Of Unmarried Undergraduate Males At A Small, Private, Christian Institution, Travis T. York 2010 Taylor University

Millennial Sex Habits: The Sexual Attitudes And Behaviors Of Unmarried Undergraduate Males At A Small, Private, Christian Institution, Travis T. York

Growth: The Journal of the Association for Christians in Student Development

This study analyzed the sexual attitudes and behaviors of 211 unmarried, traditionally-aged undergraduate males at a small, private, Christian, liberal arts institution in western Pennsylvania. As hypothesized, data were largely consistent with millennial theorists’ projections about current students’ decline in sexual activity in comparison to data from the past. The results of this project also confirm the relevance of the Social Norms Theory to the study of sexual behavior (Berkowitz, 2003). Descriptive data and definitions of sex, virginity, and abstinence are also discussed. This research suggests that student development professionals should invest in education and programming that provides accurate statistics ...

Vocationalism In Higher Education, Joshua Arnold 2010 Tabor College

Vocationalism In Higher Education, Joshua Arnold

Growth: The Journal of the Association for Christians in Student Development

In their recent book, The Outrageous Idea of Academic Faithfulness, Donald Opitz and Derek Melleby (2007) note how “expectations have profound implications on what students actually find when they arrive at college” (p. 15). In recent decades, a paradigmatic shift has occurred among college students concerning their views of the purpose of a college education. Student expectations have grown increasingly pragmatic, utilitarian, and vocational in nature. This shift toward a vocational emphasis has had a profound impact on the landscape of higher education, changing the shape of many institutions and how higher education is both viewed and offered in the ...

Cooperation Between Science Teachers And Esl Teachers: A Register Perspective, Tammy Slater, Bernard Mohan 2010 Iowa State University

Cooperation Between Science Teachers And Esl Teachers: A Register Perspective, Tammy Slater, Bernard Mohan

English Publications

Cooperation between English as a second or other language (ESOL) and content-area teachers, often difficult to achieve, is hard to assess linguistically in a revealing way. This article employs register analysis (which is different from, but complementary to, genre analysis) in a Systemic Functional Linguistic perspective to show how an ESOL teacher uses the same content-area task as a cooperating science teacher so that she can provide a theory–practice cycle similar to that of the science teacher, but at a level that reflects and builds on the language abilities of her students. The task allows her to assess her ...


Genre, Media, And Communicating To Learn In The Disciplines: Vygotsky Developmental Theory And North American Genre Theory, David R. Russell, Patricia Harms 2010 Iowa State University

Genre, Media, And Communicating To Learn In The Disciplines: Vygotsky Developmental Theory And North American Genre Theory, David R. Russell, Patricia Harms

English Publications

What is the relationship between medium and genre in learning and development? North American genre theory suggests following Miller (1984, 1994) that genre is social action. Genres evoke expectations, direct attention, guide action and suggest ‘what motives we may have.’ Yet the relationship between media and genres, as Miller suggested at SIGET IV (1997), is complex. The blog, for example, quickly evolved from being one genre to many genres and, today, might be said to be a medium more than a genre. Bazerman at SIGET IV (2007) argued, following Vygotsky (1997), that genres −particularly written genres− ‘provide highly differentiated, scaffolded ...

Grades In Prerequisite Courses As Predictors Of Success In A Nursing Program, Elaine Zeilke Foster 2010 Andrews University

Grades In Prerequisite Courses As Predictors Of Success In A Nursing Program, Elaine Zeilke Foster

Dissertations

Problem: The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics forecast that by 2016 more than one million new and replacement nurses will be needed to fill jobs in the health care field . In order to meet the medical needs of a changing society, schools of nursing must continue to educate and graduate significant numbers of nurses. This may be done by increasing the success rates of those who are admitted in nursing programs. Success rate is thought to be related to admission criteria used to admit students which, in turn, may reduce attrition rate, which is between 20 to 40% in ...


Aspirations, Involvement, And Survival: Immigrant Latino Youth Navigating School And Community, Emily Wexler Love 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder

Aspirations, Involvement, And Survival: Immigrant Latino Youth Navigating School And Community, Emily Wexler Love

School of Education Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This dissertation study, Aspirations, Involvement, and Survival: Immigrant Latino Youth Navigating School and Community, relies on youth voices to examine the structural forces that shape the school and community realities of immigrant Latino youth and the work they are doing to navigate those contexts. Newcomer, 1.5, and 2nd generation immigrant Latino youth participated in a classroom-based digital storytelling project about their school and community experiences. Youth migration profiles, focus group, and interview data were then collected over one academic year.

The findings from this study expose the institutional layers that immigrant Latino youth confront and how family separation, institutional ...

Few qualitative studies have been done in Cambodia, a country held hostage by the murderous Khmer Rouge in the 1970s. Still struggling to recover from these atrocities, Cambodia looks to education to aid in its redevelopment. This ethnographically-informed case study describes the professional literacy life of a female Cambodian primary school teacher in the post Pol Pot era. This study describes this woman’s professional and personal life as she strives to build literacy in a small village. Her work is considered in the context of her colleagues and village. Additionally, the research portrays forces that impact literacy development, ways ...

The State Of Education In Louisiana: Trend Analyses Of Student Achievement, Student Matriculation, And Student Behavior In The Accountability Era, Jonathon Anthony Szymanski

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

Public education has long been the subject of public discontent. Historical events such as the Soviet launch of Sputnik in 1957, the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, and repeated media reports that U.S. students were outscored by students in many other countries on international tests each prompted federal and state legislation aimed to reform public education. Following a presentation of the relative standing of the United States on three international tests, the history of public schooling in six states, Texas, North Carolina, Kentucky, Maryland, Florida, and Louisiana, is discussed. The central focus of the study is ...


Examining Spiritual Development In Collegiate Athletes Participating In Individual And Team Sports, Jessica Lauder Clarke 2010 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Examining Spiritual Development In Collegiate Athletes Participating In Individual And Team Sports, Jessica Lauder Clarke

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

The purpose of this explanatory study was to examine levels of spirituality self-reported by collegiate student-athletes participating in individual and team sports. Student-athletes’ levels of spirituality were measured using Astin’s (2004) College Students’ Beliefs and Values Survey (CSBV). Conceptually, this study was grounded in the works of Fowler (1981) and Parks (2000), leading researchers in measuring spiritual development. The sample of student-athletes was taken from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, a large, doctoral granting, high research activity, NCAA Division I institution. The data for this study was collected at the end of the spring semester on April 27 ...
