The Benefits Of Family And Consumer Science Education: One Educators Quest To Find Meaning Through Self Discovery And Holistic Teaching, Julie Shaw

Graduate College Dissertations and Theses

(Teachers) are engaged in work that will influence not just students’ immediate level of knowledge but their entire lives, and thereby they have the potential to contribute to the future of humanity itself. –

Dalai Lama (Spiritual Leader)

The world of public education is much different now than when I was a student not so long ago. In only ten years, the world has opened up and changed in a way that no one imagined, thanks to cell phones and social media. Students can now walk through the halls of school with a device in their pocket that allows them to ...

Buying Behaviors Of Generation X Women On Fast Fashion Products: A Mixed Methods Study, Yiyue Fan Aug 2018

Buying Behaviors Of Generation X Women On Fast Fashion Products: A Mixed Methods Study, Yiyue Fan

Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design: Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research

Fast fashion has changed the world’s fashion industry and consumer behavior extensively. Not only has the fast fashion provided “hot” products that capture the latest fashion trends from the catwalk, but has also allowed consumers purchase products with affordable prices (Su et al., 2016). Generation X is an important age group to study since it “bridged pre-digital and digital cultures, liberal and neo-conservative political swings, material abundance and economic hardship, social engagement” and has an important role in bridging baby boomers and the Millennials (Katz, 2017). A lot of literature is available about Millennials consumer buying behavior, but very ...

Radical Social Ecology As Deep Pragmatism: A Call To The Abolition Of Systemic Dissonance And The Minimization Of Entropic Chaos, Arielle Brender May 2018

Radical Social Ecology As Deep Pragmatism: A Call To The Abolition Of Systemic Dissonance And The Minimization Of Entropic Chaos, Arielle Brender

Student Theses 2015-Present

This paper aims to shed light on the dissonance caused by the superimposition of Dominant Human Systems on Natural Systems. I highlight the synthetic nature of Dominant Human Systems as egoic and linguistic phenomenon manufactured by a mere portion of the human population, which renders them inherently oppressive unto peoples and landscapes whose wisdom were barred from the design process. In pursuing a radical pragmatic approach to mending the simultaneous oppression and destruction of the human being and the earth, I highlight the necessity of minimizing entropic chaos caused by excess energy expenditure, an essential feature of systems that aim ...


The Power Of Language: Exploring Foundations Of Neoliberalism In Federal Financial Aid Policy, Brian A. Burt, Lorenzo D. Baber Apr 2018

The Power Of Language: Exploring Foundations Of Neoliberalism In Federal Financial Aid Policy, Brian A. Burt, Lorenzo D. Baber

Education Publications

Despite claims that colleges and universities are isolated from ideological preferences, sociopolitical discourse regularly shapes policies and practices of postsecondary education. This article considers how national discourse on federal aid for postsecondary education during the 1970s reflected a monumental shift in higher education policy. Specifically, we critique neoliberalism, a tenet of Critical Race Theory (CRT), to examine key testimonies from six expert educational leaders during a 1978 hearing on the Middle Income Student Assistance Act (MISAA). The key testimonies examined in this article highlight how language shifted the focus of national discourse on federal financial aid from public to private ...

Relationship Between Servant Leadership Characteristics And Turnover In Fast-Casual Restaurants, Maria Rosetta Needham

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

In the United States, turnover threatens the economic status of the restaurant industry. In 2016, the turnover rate for the fast-casual restaurant dining industry was 1.8 million people with approximately 3 million people working in the industry. Restaurant leaders struggle with solutions to help reduce the problems of turnover. Guided by the servant leadership theory, the purpose of this correlational study was to examine the relationship between empowerment, interpersonal support, and turnover in the fast-casual restaurant industry. A convenient sample of fast-casual restaurant supervisors (n =58) in the Midwestern region of the United States completed a survey with questions ...

Event Planner Sensitivity To The Needs Of Individuals With Visual Disability At Meetings And Events, Gina Fe G. Causin Ph.D., Tessa Mccarthy Ph.D.

Journal of Human Services: Training, Research, and Practice

Special events, such as fairs, conventions, ballgames, and concerts are typically activities people attend to participate in the festivities and enjoy with friends and family members. For individuals with disabilities, however, these types of events can create more challenges than enjoyment. Despite a thorough review of the literature, no studies were found which evaluated the experiences of individuals who are blind and have visual impairments at events and meetings. The aim of this study was to determine the current level of accessibility at meetings perceived by consumers who are blind and visually impaired. Respondents to the survey indicated many obstacles ...


Handbook On Teacher-Student Relationships, Michael Anthony Arteaga Sep 2017

Handbook On Teacher-Student Relationships, Michael Anthony Arteaga

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

This project aims to help teachers learn how to connect with their students of different cultural backgrounds. It is written to help teachers understand how cultural differences can have an unseen effect on student learning and immediacy. In turn, these effects can lead to a lack of motivation and lower levels of success in college obtainment. This project will also have a handbook to help teachers learn about their students’ backgrounds and understand how culture plays a role in the learning process. The handbook will review understanding the demographics of the school, cultural mismatch, cultural communication, and instructional communication. These ...

Forty years from now ... an era far from the mind's eye of today, or perhaps not so far, measured on the scale of the past altogether.

Here's How We Look, The Iowa Homemaker

The Iowa Homemaker

"Is that how I really look?" "That's not my voice!" People are amazed that the camera and the tape recorder are accurate reproductions of appearance and sound. Sometimes, though, these devices are the inspiration for changes which will improve undesirable features in a personality.

Iowa farm women created another food fad when they dipped into the lime that their husbands used on the farm. The lime was combined in a syrup and produced pickles which had an unsurpassed crispness.

A chocolate malt and a peanut butter and bacon sandwich, or a pizza and a bottle of pop? When you place your order for this imaginary, late-evening snack, you will also be showing your age by choosing the food that was a fad during your college years.

Decorating Your Home With The Family In Mind, Jan Wheeler

The Iowa Homemaker

New ideas and products are forever popping up in the world of interior decoration, and new and exciting trends are always in swing. These ideas and tendencies may be completely novel or may be delightful revivals of a past era, as seems to be prominent with the current emphasis on early American and provincial decor.

I graduated in 1957, so "home ec" as I knew it probably isn't too different from what you have today. Yet, I do know of several changes that seem strange to my "old-grad" ears.

1940s, Ruth Hackett Webber

The Iowa Homemaker

The Forties saw the beginning and the end of the War. In the first part a man was either 4-F or in the service, and the campus ratio wasn't as favorable to women as usual. The shift brought more women to Iowa State College because families didn't have to pay to put their sons through school, and they sent their daughters. In 1941, home economics enrollment hit a peak of nearly 1,800 students.


1930s, Laura Christensen Daily Aug 2017

1930s, Laura Christensen Daily

The Iowa Homemaker

There are two college-age persons who live at our house and call me "Mom," and they are reasonably well-informed about American history, sociology, economics, and other aspects of our culture. Yet they have one blind spot. They believe that the time of their parent's youth is known as the Olden Days; everyone who lived then was a righteous, thrifty, ambitious "square," and certainly college life bore no resemblance to the enlightened way they are living it now.

1920s, Rose Storm Summers

The Iowa Homemaker

The Terrible Twenties took over our lives while I was a freshman at Ames. Following on the heels of the "War To End Wars," there were so many changes in our way of life that our generation was wholly unaware we were to become the symbol of the great upheaval in social traditions. We just considered ourselves a little more "progressive" than older brothers and sisters- considerably more progressive than our parents!
