The objective of this study is to examine the assimilation process of first, second, and third, generation Italian-Americans had on three facets of their culture’s everyday life, specifically: food, language, and last names. As Italians immigrated and assimilated into America, so did their culture and native traditions. Over time, the Italian culture has turned into a staple of American life and can be seen integrated into communities across the United States. A culture originally the subject of mockery, ridicule, and discrimination, the Italian culture endured decades, and generations, of change to become praised and appreciated. Although aspects of all ...

Questioning Patterns During Discussions In Collaborative Groups In Socioeconomically Diverse High Schools, Rosa Aghekyan Jan 2015

Questioning Patterns During Discussions In Collaborative Groups In Socioeconomically Diverse High Schools, Rosa Aghekyan

NERA Conference Proceedings 2014

The use of higher level questioning is known to promote problem solving. However, the research on questioning patterns is mostly restricted to elementary and middle schools. Not enough is known about questioning patterns employed by students during group discussions in socioeconomically diverse high schools. This study’s goals were to record the questioning patterns used during group discussions and find out how often students utilize higher level thinking questions. The research showed significant increase in the percentage of higher level questions utilized by the experimental group pre-test and post-test: 85% in Day 4 compared to 65% in Day 1.

Co-Teaching Partnerships For Excellence In The Age Of Accountability: A Preliminary Study Of The Effects Of Co-Teaching In Student Teaching, Jeanne Delcolle, Claudine Keenan

NERA Conference Proceedings 2014

Accountability measures for educators have made districts reluctant to accept teacher candidates for clinical experience in a traditional take-over model. Difficulty placing teacher candidates prompted Richard Stockton College to research innovative student teaching models to strengthen clinical partnerships with P-12 districts. Studies of co-teaching in student teaching from St. Cloud State University showed a model that provided many benefits to the teacher candidate and cooperating teacher, as well as notable gains in student achievement. That research inspired this pilot study, whichidentified co-teaching strengths in professionalism, teaching time, student learning, and cooperating teacher growth, with implications for strengthening future research.

The Use Of Collaborative Assignments To Enhance Experiential Learning In Community College Health Education Courses, Andrea S. Salis, Tony Monahan, Daniel Armstrong

NERA Conference Proceedings 2014

Experiential learning is a critical part of health education courses. It provides opportunities for students to connect their classroom learning to outside experiences to achieve a better understanding of various issues and concepts. Through experiential learning, students can analyze, evaluate and document outside experiences in relation to their coursework. This study investigated the significance of collaborative assignments in experiential learning using the high impact practice, global and diversity learning. The results of this study demonstrate higher scores on analytical reasoning and connections to coursework when experiential learning includes a collaborative assignment.


Team Teaching Buddies: Student Teaching In The Era Of Edtpa, Barbara Rosenfeld Jan 2015

Team Teaching Buddies: Student Teaching In The Era Of Edtpa, Barbara Rosenfeld

NERA Conference Proceedings 2014

Student teachers are typically placed in a classroom with a single mentor teacher. Although there have been many changes in education within the past decades, including new teacher certification requirements, there has been little modification in this student teaching structure. It is time to review student teaching programs to find the best way to insure that student teacher candidates have an optimal experience. This study examines a buddy approach wherein two student teachers work as a team in a classroom with a single mentor teacher to determine if this is a useful paradigm for helping students through the certification process.


The Effects Of Reading Mode On Recall And Comprehension, Anne M. Niccoli Jan 2015

The Effects Of Reading Mode On Recall And Comprehension, Anne M. Niccoli

NERA Conference Proceedings 2014

This study explored students' differences in reading comprehension between digital and paper reading modes. This quasi-experiment consisted of adult students enrolled in military leadership courses. Each randomly selected group read the same leadership article, either digital or paper. Students completed an assessment to determine differences in recall accuracy and comprehension between digital and paper readers. While there were no significant differences in group means of recall between reading versions, a persistent pattern in differences of score ranges and frequencies was evident for recall accuracy and comprehension. The implications and considerations of individual differences in score frequencies are discussed.

Traditional Vs. Electronic Learning Environment, William T. Kaufman

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

The traditional learning environment and electronic learning environment are quickly being blended into some curriculum's at the elementary level. Using the qualitative comparison study this paper analyzed what type of environment was most effective for an elementary student. Three students within a second grade classroom were chosen to be observed based on current levels of performances in the areas of English – Language Arts and Mathematics. Student behavior, engagement, and academic success were all concepts that were analyzed. Parent teacher conference notes were analyzed to determine if the electronic learning program was suitable for usage outside of school hours.
