Plus Ça Change, Plus C’Est La Même Chose: An Afro Caribbean Scholar On The Higher Education Plantation., Janice Fournillier 2009 Georgia State University

Plus Ça Change, Plus C’Est La Même Chose: An Afro Caribbean Scholar On The Higher Education Plantation., Janice Fournillier

Janice B Fournillier

In this autoethnographic piece, I explore my writing events and activities that bring me to an even greater realisation that, Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose (The more things change the more they remain the same). It pushes me to tell mystory as an Afro Caribbean scholar who chooses to reside and work in the USA. I reflect on and reinterpret my writings using a dialogic/performance analysis. One major outcome is a consciousness, an awakening, and recognition that social plantation systems continue to exist in the geographic spaces—Trinidad and Tobago and the United states—that ...

Codes Declassified: The Stories, Kalvin Whittles

Kalvin Whittles Dr.

One of the recommendations of the doctoral study, Cryptology: A didactical transposition into a grade 10 school mathematics classroom is to place the topic of cryptology in the public domain. The book Codes declassified: The stories aims to do so through stories to introduce readers to some of the codes in cryptology.

Civil Procedure For All States: A Context And Practice Casebook, Benjamin Madison, III 2009 Regent University School of Law

Civil Procedure For All States: A Context And Practice Casebook, Benjamin Madison, Iii

Benjamin V Madison, III

The casebook forms part of the "Context and Practice" casebook series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz and Gerald Hess. The casebooks integrate the method of teachin advocated by the Carnegie Insitute's EDUCATING LAWYERS (2007) and the Clinical Legal Education Association's BEST PRACTICES FOR LEGAL EDUCATION (2007). Thus, the casebooks include not only traditional case material in which students learn legal doctrine (in this case, federal and state pretrial practice and procedure), but also exercise in each chapter for the professor to employ experiential and skills learning, and exercises in each chapter in which students engage in questions of ...


A Commonly Carried Allele Of The Obesity-Related Fto Gene Is Associated With Reduced Brain Volume In The Healthy Elderly, Ivo Dinov 2009 University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

A Commonly Carried Allele Of The Obesity-Related Fto Gene Is Associated With Reduced Brain Volume In The Healthy Elderly, Ivo Dinov

Ivo D Dinov

A recently identified variant within the fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO) gene is carried by 46% of Western Europeans and is associated with an ~1.2 kg higher weight, on average, in adults and an ~1 cm greater waist circumference. With >1 billion overweight and 300 million obese persons worldwide, it is crucial to understand the implications of carrying this very common allele for the health of our aging population. FTO is highly expressed in the brain and elevated body mass index (BMI) is associated with brain atrophy, but it is unknown how the obesity-associated risk allele affects human brain ...

As An Educator And Educational Researcher, How Do I Improve What I Am Doing And Contribute To Educational Theories That Carry Hope For The Future Of Humanity?, Jack Whitehead 2009 University of Cumbria

As An Educator And Educational Researcher, How Do I Improve What I Am Doing And Contribute To Educational Theories That Carry Hope For The Future Of Humanity?, Jack Whitehead

Jack Whitehead

What I want to share in this contribution to education inquiry are some insights from my educational research programme between 1973-2010 about the kind of educational theories that can explain the educational influence of an individual in their own learning, in the learning of others and in the learning of the social formations in which we live and work. These insights are focused on: i) The desire of educators to account to themselves and others for living as fully as possible the ontological values they use to give meaning and purpose to their lives in their vocation of education. ii ...


Basic Writing, George Otte, Rebecca Mlynarczyk 2009 CUNY School of Professional Studies

Basic Writing, George Otte, Rebecca Mlynarczyk

George Otte

Framed by historic developments—from the Open Admissions movement of the 1960s and 1970s to the attacks on remediation that intensified in the 1990s and beyond, Basic Writing traces the arc of these large social and cultural forces as they have shaped and reshaped the field. George Otte and Rebecca Williams Mlynarczyk balance fidelity to the past with present relevance, local concerns with (presumptively) global knowledge, personal judgment with (apparent) objectivity. Basic Writing circles back on the same general story, looking for different themes or seeing the same themes from different perspectives. What emerges is a gestalt of basic writing ...


Factors Influencing The Contribution Of Staff To Health Education In Schools, D. Jourdan, P. Mannix McNamara, C. Simar, T. Geary, J. Pommier 2009 University of Limerick

Factors Influencing The Contribution Of Staff To Health Education In Schools, D. Jourdan, P. Mannix Mcnamara, C. Simar, T. Geary, J. Pommier

Dr. Patricia Mannix McNamara

Understanding the contribution of the wholeschool staff to health education (HE) is an important goal in HE research. This study aimed to identify the views of staff (principals; teachers; school nurses and doctors; counsellors and administrative, maintenance, canteen and cleaning staff) regarding the nature of their contribution to HE.

The research is based on 207 semi-structured interviews of staff in a sample of five French middle schools (grade 6–9). Content analysis was performed using Bardin’s method.

The results showed that staff members have different views of their role, three main roles were identified: (i) as an educator in ...


Freshman Professor: The First Year; The First Semester; The First Day, McKay Cunningham 2009 Phoenix School of Law

Freshman Professor: The First Year; The First Semester; The First Day, Mckay Cunningham

McKay Cunningham

“Fresh from practice, clerking, or sometimes even law school itself, the newly-appointed law professor is injected into the classroom with the incredible assumption that he or she will know what to do in front of a class and, therefore, needs no guidance in the art of teaching.” Without formal guidance, new law professors often adopt the only approach to legal teaching they know–the same Socratic method employed when they were students.

This short piece includes an account of freshman mistakes, lucky breaks, and the beginnings of a teaching philosophy. It includes resources to guide a new professor’s decisions ...

The Use Of Music To Teach Life Skills To Students With Emotional Disabilities In The Classroom, Dr Williams Obiozor 2009 Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka-Nigeria

The Use Of Music To Teach Life Skills To Students With Emotional Disabilities In The Classroom, Dr Williams Obiozor

Dr Williams Emeka Obiozor

This paper discusses the teaching of life skills to urban American youths who are highly fascinated with the hip-hop culture—songs, raps, miming, lyrics, dressing and musical rhythms, especially individuals with emotional disabilities in the public schools. This is an instructional curriculum strategy to encourage positive and active participation of these students, promote perfect school attendance, encourage good behaviors, deal with anger management and motivate committed learning in the classroom. The instructors’ understanding of students’ culture, learning needs and styles, and using such background knowledge to educate them become imperative in this setting. These urge for innovative and leadership projects ...


Poetry And Pedagogy: Exploring The Opportunity For Epistemological And Affective Development Within The Classroom, Jennifer Hennessy, Carmel Hinchion, Patricia Mannix McNamara 2009 University of Limerick

Poetry And Pedagogy: Exploring The Opportunity For Epistemological And Affective Development Within The Classroom, Jennifer Hennessy, Carmel Hinchion, Patricia Mannix Mcnamara

Dr. Jennifer Hennessy

This paper provides a review of the priority afforded to the development of pupils’ affective and epistemic development within the contemporary poetry class. The paper reports on the findings of a research project which explored the experience of teaching and learning within the post-primary Leaving Certificate programme in Ireland. The research includes interview and questionnaire data obtained over a three year period from 2007-2010 from 80 post-primary teachers of Leaving Certificate poetry and 200 post-primary Leaving Certificate pupils. The paper highlights the malign impact of summative assessment on teachers’ pedagogical aspirations, identifying widespread professional dissonance amongst the cohort. Resultantly, empirical ...
