Education and Human Development Master's Theses

With the adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), further emphasis in science education is being placed on preparing students to become more informed voters regarding social, ethical, economic and political topics that affect contemporary society. Parallel to this shift is a stronger emphasis on integrating evolutionary theory as a unifying concept in the biological sciences. Given that evolution is one of the aforementioned topics commonly discussed and debated about in social and political arenas, ensuring that instruction provides students from all backgrounds a comprehensive understanding of its principals is becoming increasingly important in contemporary science education.

The Italian Immigrants’ Assimilation Into American Culture And The Subsequent Impact On Food, Language And Last Names, Joseph S. Pechie May 2015

The Italian Immigrants’ Assimilation Into American Culture And The Subsequent Impact On Food, Language And Last Names, Joseph S. Pechie

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

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 ...

Applying Cooperative Learning To The New York State Living Environment Curriculum, James R. Franklin Jan 2015

Applying Cooperative Learning To The New York State Living Environment Curriculum, James R. Franklin

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

According to the National Education Association, students need to be prepared to be contributing members in global society (2012). Therefore, students need to learn how to collaborate and communicate with peers in a group. So far, competition has been prevalent in the academics of the United States (Shindler, 2009). Cooperative learning provides a teaching approach based on group success. Furthermore, there is a plethora of benefits from the use of cooperative learning in the science classroom. It promotes psychological health and high academic achievement (Johnson, Johnson & Roseth, 2010; Mesch, Johnson and Johnson, 2001). Cooperative learning is also a good approach for student ...


Cap Writing: A Novel Technology Approach To Literacy With Reluctant Writers, Joy Barnes-Johnson Jan 2015

Cap Writing: A Novel Technology Approach To Literacy With Reluctant Writers, Joy Barnes-Johnson

Joy Barnes-Johnson

CAP writing is a tiered approach to the writing process. Developed in part to address the needs of reluctant writers, it acknowledges learning style preferences that are oral in nature and attentive to cultural norms and traditions that are based in spoken word. CAP is a celebration of self in the process of writing. Evolving from a social capital—traditional—view of writing, this cultural capital perspective on writing is strengthened by apertures between micro-level, meso-level and macro-level being.

Horace Bushnell: Advocate Of Progressive Orthodoxy And Christian Nurture, Samuel J. Smith, Elmer L. Towns Jan 2015

Horace Bushnell: Advocate Of Progressive Orthodoxy And Christian Nurture, Samuel J. Smith, Elmer L. Towns

Samuel J. Smith

Disparaged by his critics as a liberal, Calvinist, mystic, and heretic, Horace Bushnell’s theology—particularly his notion of Christian nurture—has prevailed as a significantly influential model for religious education. His legacy reveals one who attempted to bridge the divides of his time, including the chasm between Orthodox Calvinism and Unitarianism. Though many were confused by his language theory and mediating stance on doctrinal issues, his principles of Christian nurture clearly served as a pilot light that ignited the flame of the twentieth-century religious education movement.


The Business Of Learning To Teach: A Critical Metaphor Analysis Of One Teacher's Journey, Lauren Gatti, Theresa Catalano Jan 2015

The Business Of Learning To Teach: A Critical Metaphor Analysis Of One Teacher's Journey, Lauren Gatti, Theresa Catalano

Lauren Gatti

This article analyzes the learning to teach process of one novice teacher, Rachael, enrolled in an Urban Teacher Residency (UTR) in Harbor City, United States. Building on Loh and Hu's (2014) scholarship on neoliberalism and novice teachers, we employ Critical Metaphor Analysis (CMA) to make visible the ways in which Rachael contends with conflicting frames of learning to teach--TEACHING IS A JOURNEY vs. TEACHING IS A BUSINESS--within her program. Rachael encounters three primary obstacles: programmatic incompatibility, pedagogical paralysis, and, ultimately, programmatic abandonment. The discussion explores the potential consequences of learning to teach in neoliberal contexts.


Early Childhood Math Coaching: Relationships And Strategies, Cilla Williams Bercovici Jan 2015

Early Childhood Math Coaching: Relationships And Strategies, Cilla Williams Bercovici

Education Doctoral Theses

Falling scores in American student achievement in mathematics has prompted renewed interest in elementary math instruction. By their own admission, elementary school teachers, however, are not always comfortable teaching math. On-site math coaches/specialists can help teachers implement best practices and new standards. Since teachers' sense of efficacy has been shown to affect their instructional practices and, in turn, their students' math achievement, coaches' support of such efficacy is essential. This qualitative case study explored the relationships between elementary math coaches and early childhood educators. The goal was to identify the strategies most effective in developing and supporting teachers' sense ...


The Drop Out Decisions Of Latino College Students, Dennis Camacho Jan 2015

The Drop Out Decisions Of Latino College Students, Dennis Camacho

Education Doctoral Theses

Scholars in the field of higher education administration have researched the factors that mold the collegiate experience for Latino college students, specifically how they affect retention at campuses in the midwest, southwest and west coast regions of the United States. However, there is limited research on this topic in the northeast region of the United States. This phenomenological, qualitative study supplements current research by providing findings on the drop out decision considerations of Latino former college students who attended a college or university in the northeast region of the United States and were members of Latino Greek lettered organizations. Tinto ...

Take Me Under Your Wing: An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis Of The Lived Experiences Of Three New Principals In Small High Schools, John Joseph Buckey

Education Doctoral Theses

Currently in the research literature there exists a dearth of qualitative research regarding the lived experiences of new principals in small schools with mentoring. This interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA) study sought to understand better the experiences with mentoring of new administrators, defined as being in their first three years, in small schools, defined as having a student population of fewer than 500 students. Three new principals were identified through criterion sampling. Each participated in three semi-structured interviews in order to understand their lived experiences with mentoring as they transitioned into and experienced the principalship in their first years. These lived ...


The Impact Of Leadership Style On Massachusetts Teachers' Cognitive, Emotional, And Intentional Response To Mandated Curriculum Change, Jennifer Devlin Jan 2015

The Impact Of Leadership Style On Massachusetts Teachers' Cognitive, Emotional, And Intentional Response To Mandated Curriculum Change, Jennifer Devlin

Education Doctoral Theses

Massachusetts curriculum frameworks in English/Language arts (ELA) aligned to the Common Core State Standards were issued in 2011 and full implementation is expected for the 2014-2015 school year. Teachers have been tasked with aligning their curriculum such that their lessons and units will prepare their students for state assessments aligned with the new frameworks. This study utilized a casual-comparative ex post facto design to examine, through the lens of Piderit's (2000) multidimensional response to change in conjunction with Chin and Benne's (1961) leadership strategies of planned change, the extent to which a teachers' perceptions of leadership style ...


An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis Of English-As-A-Second-Language (Esl) Teachers’ Motivational Beliefs In Developing Different Pedagogical Starategies, Ho Ying Chung Jan 2015

An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis Of English-As-A-Second-Language (Esl) Teachers’ Motivational Beliefs In Developing Different Pedagogical Starategies, Ho Ying Chung

Education Doctoral Theses

Motivated teachers affect not only their own teaching quality and job satisfaction, but also their students' motivation and learning outcomes, and institutional culture and development. One self-financed tertiary college in Hong Kong has also begun to consider the significance of teacher motivation and revised its appraisal criteria to include evaluating teacher motivation. However, as of yet, the college has not developed programs, classes, or seminars designed to improve teacher motivation. Hence, teacher motivation, and the different ways to improve and assess it, has become an important consideration for higher education institutions like the research site. This study employed an interpretive ...


Role Conflict And Role Ambiguity As Predictors Of Burnout In Special And General Education Co-Teachers, Cassandra L. Moss Jan 2015

Role Conflict And Role Ambiguity As Predictors Of Burnout In Special And General Education Co-Teachers, Cassandra L. Moss

Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Since the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act of 2004, special and general educators teach together in many classrooms. Co-teachers are subject to a variety of stressors, including role challenges for teachers who are accustomed to working independently. Research has shown that role ambiguity and role conflict are associated with burnout among special and general educators. However, no prior study has examined whether these role factors contribute to burnout among special and general educators in co-teaching roles. This study was based upon role stress theory in relation to the constructs of burnout. The sample included 72 special educators and 73 ...


Technology Tools To Support Learning Design: Implications Derived From An Investigation Of University Teachers' Design Practices, Sue Bennett, Shirley Agostinho, Lori Lockyer Jan 2015

Technology Tools To Support Learning Design: Implications Derived From An Investigation Of University Teachers' Design Practices, Sue Bennett, Shirley Agostinho, Lori Lockyer

Faculty of Social Sciences - Papers

The need to improve the quality of higher education has fostered an interest in technology tools to support effective design for teaching and learning. Over the past decade this interest has led to the development of tools to support the creation of online learning experiences, specifications to underpin design systems, and repositories to share examples. Despite this significant activity, there remain unanswered questions about what shapes university teachers' design decisions and how tools can best support their design processes. This paper presents findings from a study of university teachers'; design practices that identified teachers' perceptions of student characteristics, their own ...

The Experiences Of School Principals Who Report Job Satisfaction: An Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis, Sharon Michelle Edmond

Education Doctoral Theses

In a Metlife, Inc. study conducted in 2012, 41 percent of school principals reported job dissatisfaction. Of those, one-third admitted to looking for another job. The complexities and challenges faced by school principals in the K-12 sector has led to an increased number of dissatisfied principals and a decrease in retention. Several studies have looked at the challenges of the principal role and what can lead to a lack of satisfaction with the job, but few have focused on what brings job satisfaction to principals despite the challenges. The purpose of this study was to explore what contributes to job ...

Critical Pedagogy In Classroom Discourse, Loukia K. Sarroub, Sabrina Quadros Jan 2015

Critical Pedagogy In Classroom Discourse, Loukia K. Sarroub, Sabrina Quadros

Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

The classroom is a unique discursive space for the enactment of critical pedagogy. In some ways, all classroom discourse is critical because it is inherently political, and at the heart of critical pedagogy is an implicit understanding that power is negotiated daily by teachers and students. Historically, critical pedagogy is rooted in schools of thought that have emphasized the individual and the self in relation and in contrast to society, sociocultural and ideological forces, and economic factors and social progress. In addressing conceptualizations in Orthodox Marxism (with Karl Marx, Max Weber, and Emile Durkheim) in the mid-19th century and the ...


You Can't See What I Can See: Examining The Campus Leadership Experiences Of Black Female Graduate Students At A Predominantly White Institution, Tashika Griffith Jan 2015

You Can't See What I Can See: Examining The Campus Leadership Experiences Of Black Female Graduate Students At A Predominantly White Institution, Tashika Griffith

Education Doctoral Theses

The number of Black female graduate students withdrawing from predominantly White institutions (PWIs) continues to rise each year due to negative campus experiences with race and gender. One of the ways in which some institutions have addressed these issues is by providing more opportunities for graduate student engagement. The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine the campus leadership experiences of Black female graduate students at a PWI. Four doctoral student participants were able to provide rich narratives of their individual communities, early and undergraduate years of student leadership, and experiences as graduate student leaders. Participants identified a personal ...


Implementing Internationalization: How A Post-Secondary Environment Understands And Operationalizes The Process, Kimberlee Ann Johnsen-Smith Jan 2015

Implementing Internationalization: How A Post-Secondary Environment Understands And Operationalizes The Process, Kimberlee Ann Johnsen-Smith

Education Doctoral Theses

Since globalization has become more visible on American campuses, US post-secondary institutions have begun to prepare new graduates for twenty-first century careers through internationalization initiatives (ACE, 2012; Hunter, 2004). As a result, administrators and staff members at post-secondary institutions implement internationalization policies. The process is designed to equip future graduates with the skills and knowledge necessary to be competitive in the current global economy (ACE, 2012; CIGE, 2012; Hunter, 2004).
