Redshirting: A Critical, Historical Analysis Of The Changing Theories, Policies, And Practices Of Children's Transition Into Kindergarten, Lisa Babel Jun 2017

Redshirting: A Critical, Historical Analysis Of The Changing Theories, Policies, And Practices Of Children's Transition Into Kindergarten, Lisa Babel

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This paper examines the contemporary debate over redshirting within the context of a historical analysis of how schools in the United States have addressed children’s transition into kindergarten. It also considers how preparation for the transition to school is cause for concern that has varied greatly depending on the socio-economic conditions of children’s families. Redshirting is the term currently being used to define a child’s delayed entry into kindergarten, usually with the intention of creating an additional year for that child to develop socially and to strive academically. Central to understanding this phenomenon and how to address ...

Found-Thirty-Five Hours A Week, Ethel Cessna Morgan May 2017

Found-Thirty-Five Hours A Week, Ethel Cessna Morgan

The Iowa Homemaker

Very often the most vital influences in our lives come in the unexpected moments. The other day, I picked up a copy of our college alumni magazines expecting to scan its pages for news of old friends. I was caught instead by an article which I had reread twice and which has been subconsciously in my mind ever since. It was the reprint of a Commencement address given by Dorothy Canfield Fisher to the Graduating class at Kansas University last spring.

Neues Testament Und Märchen: Tolkien, Fairy Stories, And The Gospel, John Wm. Houghton Apr 2017

Neues Testament Und Märchen: Tolkien, Fairy Stories, And The Gospel, John Wm. Houghton

Journal of Tolkien Research

J. R. R. Tolkien’s 1943 claim in “On Fairy-stories” that the Christian Gospel is a fairy story which “has entered History and the primary world” stands over against significant (and widely publicized) elements of Liberal Protestant biblical interpretation of the 19th and 20th centuries, exemplified in Rudolph Bultmann’s 1941 essay, “New Testament and Mythology.” Tolkien’s position, which seems to have influenced C. S. Lewis and Austin Farrer, owes something to G. K. Chesterton but has yet more direct parallels in Thomas Aquinas and Gregory the Great.


Josephine Butler And Ruth: A Case Study On How Literature Can Instigate Social And Legal Reform Regarding The Fallen Woman, Christiana Johnson Apr 2017

Josephine Butler And Ruth: A Case Study On How Literature Can Instigate Social And Legal Reform Regarding The Fallen Woman, Christiana Johnson

Senior Honors Theses

This thesis analyzes how the protagonist in Elizabeth Gaskell’s novel Ruth (1853) challenged the stereotypes projected onto the fallen woman in nineteenth century England. The prime moral figure, Mr. Benson, a clergyman in the story, cares for Ruth and provides for her with the help of his sister. Their kindness to a woman who would have been considered an outcast argues for a different response to sin than what society suggested.

After reading the novel, Josephine Butler acted upon the novel’s ethos and became an activist for women who were viewed as social outcasts because they were prostitutes ...


Yahweh And Allah -- The Essential Differences: Why Christians And Muslims Do Not Worship The Same God And Why It Matters, Sarah D. Stewart Apr 2017

Yahweh And Allah -- The Essential Differences: Why Christians And Muslims Do Not Worship The Same God And Why It Matters, Sarah D. Stewart

Senior Honors Theses

The question of whether or not Muslims and Christians worship the same deity has become a heated debate in many theological circles. This debate, in particular, is a growing question for Christians in the West, as large numbers of Muslims are entering the population, and the answer given helps to determine interactions with them.

This study was made by a review of various literature materials. Primary sources included translations of the Qur’an and the Bible. Secondary sources included books written by prominent Christian apologists. An important book used was by Yale theologian, Miroslav Volf, which took the opposing side ...

Session Description

The Outer Cape Cod, Massachusetts region is famed for its beauty as a summer vacation destination. For many residents and migrant workers serving the tourism industry; however, the intersection of isolation, little affordable housing, and limited transportation options can exacerbate problems due to mental health, substance abuse, and co-occurring conditions. Police, emergency responders, and EDs encounter this at-risk population disproportionately. Outer Cape Health Services, the local FQHC, proposed a novel solution ...

El Salvador: Methods Use To Document Human Rights Violations, Gloria Valencia-Weber Feb 2017

El Salvador: Methods Use To Document Human Rights Violations, Gloria Valencia-Weber

Gloria Valencia-Weber

This study describes and analyzes the methods used to document human rights abuses in El Salvador, focusing on the methods used by the United States Government through its Embassy in San Salvador, and by Tutela Legal, a nongovernmental monitoring agency in San Salvador. The authors examined Tutela and U.S. records which were relevant and available for 1980 through 1984 and used post-1984 official statements which relate to methods. The focus is on the method used for the documentation of the murder or disappearance of civilians. This paper begins with an examination of the current international human rights standards as ...
