Elementary Teachers' Expectations And Perceptions Of School Counselors, Kelly Stapleton 2014 East Tennessee State University

Elementary Teachers' Expectations And Perceptions Of School Counselors, Kelly Stapleton

Undergraduate Honors Theses

This qualitative study explored the expectations and perceptions elementary teachers have of school counselors. Participants were current or past students in an elementary education graduate program at a southeastern university. The participants responded to an open-ended online survey that consisted of questions that focused on the demographics of their schools and the expectations and perceptions they had of the school counselor’s roles and responsibilities pertaining to both academic achievement and student behavior. Although responses varied, the data suggests that there was substantial concern regarding the time and availability of the school counselor, implications of the use of counselors as ...

The Neighborhood Model: Supporting Student Success Through Departmental Partnerships, Larry D. Long, Kristen Renn

Larry D. Long

Like a ball in a pinball machine, many students on college campuses have to bounce from one building to another to receive the resources they need. What if we brought the resources to our on-campus students instead? Learn how one institution created small residential communities within the larger campus, or neighborhoods, to promote the academic success of its students.

Who’S At Risk? Exploring Characteristics Of Academic Probation Students, Larry D. Long, Tonisha B. Lane

Larry D. Long

In order to influence student persistence, retention, and academic success, student affairs professionals need to have a greater awareness of the characteristics of academic probation students. This session will inform participants about how one institution used quantitative and qualitative data to better understand their academic probation population, what the institution learned from this data, and how it can be used to shape institutional policies and practices.

Universal Design And Cognitions Of Choice: An Integrated Approach To Effective Substance Misuse Treatment Efforts, Clarissa E. Steffen Ed.D.

Faculty Scholarship (COE)

Having the ability to exercise critical thinking at a conscious level of choice versus impulsively responding may support the difference between health and continued substance misuse during periods of vulnerability. Cognitions of Choice offers twenty four critical thinking skills that are connected to three levels of developmental choice that engages self-dialog between automatic thinking, meta-thinking, and conscious thought patterns. By the time many individuals make their way into treatment and recovery programs the likelihood of their presenting with physical disabilities and mental health conditions is heightened. Incorporating the principles of Universal Design into program development allows for full access for ...

A Phenomenological Study Of Non-Lgbt Students With Lgbq Parents, Thomas Bourdon 2014 Northeastern University

A Phenomenological Study Of Non-Lgbt Students With Lgbq Parents, Thomas Bourdon

Education Doctoral Theses

There is a lack of qualitative research that has sought to uncover the lived experiences of students who identify as heterosexual/cisgender (i.e., non-LGBT) but have at least one parent who identifies as LGBQ. This phenomenological analysis aimed to uncover common themes for students who have gone through their educational journey with this identity. Social identity theory was used as the theoretical framework for this research. Nine college students from various higher education institutions across the United States were chosen to participate in this study through criterion and snowball sampling. Each participated in two semi-structured interviews and responded to ...


Response To Intervention (Rti): A Mixed Methods Study Evaluating The Effects Of Behavior Training Software On Behavior Of In-School Suspension Students, Rosie N. Cooper 2014 Northeastern University

Response To Intervention (Rti): A Mixed Methods Study Evaluating The Effects Of Behavior Training Software On Behavior Of In-School Suspension Students, Rosie N. Cooper

Education Doctoral Theses

Excessive classroom disruption is prevalent among today's public high schools and is a deterrent to the academic and social achievements of students. Using Response to Intervention (RtI) to equip in-school suspension (ISS) programs with a research-based behavioral curriculum is one possible solution to efficiently and cost-effectively remediating the behaviors of at-risk students. Further investigation of this problem was necessary in order to evaluate its effectiveness; therefore, a software-based behavioral intervention program called Ripple Effects® for Teens was integrated into the ISS program of a high school. A mixed-methods approach was used to evaluate the outcome of the intervention on ...

Eight programs were identified at four schools in California, one school in Michigan, one school in Minnesota, and one school in Massachusetts. These certificate programs have a bifurcated history and have existed since 1990. Results of the study revealed: the two major types of college counseling certificate programs, their ...


How Service-Learning Enacts Social Justice Sensemaking, Tania D. Mitchell 2014 Iowa State University

How Service-Learning Enacts Social Justice Sensemaking, Tania D. Mitchell

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

This qualitative research seeks to understand how students’ experiences in service-learning contribute to their understanding of and commitment to social justice. Sensemaking theory is applied to unpack how students make sense of social justice—expressly, how the service-learning experiences (both community and classroom processes) provide students the opportunity to consider and conceptualize issues of justice. The findings demonstrate that students’ experiences in service-learning facilitated a more complex understanding of and expressed commitment to social justice. Key to this process of social justice sensemaking were six properties: students’ developing understandings of themselves and their role (identity); revisiting and reconsidering their positions ...


Toward Inclusive Understanding And Practice Of Diversity: Directions For Accommodating Muslim And Other Religious Minoritized Students On University Campuses, Neivin M. Shalabi 2014 Iowa State University

Toward Inclusive Understanding And Practice Of Diversity: Directions For Accommodating Muslim And Other Religious Minoritized Students On University Campuses, Neivin M. Shalabi

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

Campus diversity efforts are central to a growing number of institutions of higher education. In spite of the inclusive connotation of the term, race takes precedence over other components of diversity. The emphasis on race can be understood in light of the unfortunate history of slavery and excessive injustices experienced by African Americans and other racial minorities in the U.S. Yet, there is a critical need to embrace a broader range of social identities if diversity efforts are intended to promote social justice for various minoritized groups. This article calls attention to religion as an overlooked component of diversity ...

African American Oral Histories Of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Public Schools During The Early Days Of Desegregation, 1955 – 1967, Lorena B. Whipple 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

African American Oral Histories Of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Public Schools During The Early Days Of Desegregation, 1955 – 1967, Lorena B. Whipple

Doctoral Dissertations

Many traditional historical texts of the United States are missing the voiced presence of African Americans. Existing historical texts concerning desegregation in the South, and particularly in Tennessee, are missing African Americans’ experienced perspectives during racial desegregation in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The intention of this dissertation is to use oral history as a methodology to document the memories of seven African Americans who participated in the racial desegregation of Oak Ridge, Tennessee public schools. Critical race theory is the interpretive lens used to analyze the interviews. The oral historical accounts contained in this study suggest African Americans have a unique ...

Exploring The Multicultural Competence Of School Counselors, Fallon K. Dodson 2013 Western Connecticut State University

Exploring The Multicultural Competence Of School Counselors, Fallon K. Dodson

The Journal for Counselor Preparation and Supervision

The purpose of this study was to explore the self-perceived multicultural competence of school counselors. Forty-one school counselors out of the 510 school counselors who were current members of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) completed both survey instruments: a demographic survey and the Multicultural Counseling Knowledge and Awareness Scale (MCKAS). The results of the study indicated that one of eight demographic variables demonstrated significance in relation to multicultural competence. Recommendations for future research included using a larger, ethnically diverse sample; including all school counselors in the state of Virginia; developing a survey instrument that included more aspects of multiculturalism ...

School Counseling Supervision In Challenging Times: The Cafe Supervisor Model, Melissa S. Ockerman, Erin C. M. Mason, Stuart F. Chen-Hayes

The Journal for Counselor Preparation and Supervision

Given the increased need for school counselors to proactively address the pervasive achievement, opportunity, and attainment gaps, school counselor preparation should move from traditional supervision models to one with an equitable K-12 student outcomes focus. The Change Agent for Equity (CAFE) model presented can help school counselors-in-training foster a change agent identity, aimed at helping all K-12 students succeed and reach their postsecondary dreams. The CAFE model and the supervisor’s identity and supervision practices within the model are described. Additionally, internship assignments and rubrics are outlined and supervisory recommendations and implications are discussed.
