New York State Migrant Education Program And Its Impact On Students In The Brockport Tutorial Outreach Project, Dolly Jackson-Williams May 1992

New York State Migrant Education Program And Its Impact On Students In The Brockport Tutorial Outreach Project, Dolly Jackson-Williams

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

In spite of their problems the Migrant Education Program still provides effective assistance to the migrant population. It is surprising to note that many educators have no knowledge of the lifestyle and the educational process that the migrant students have to contend, in order to receive an appropriate education. Sadly, many educators do not know how to address the academic needs of the migrant students in their classroom. Because of this lack of knowledge, the special needs of the migrant child go unmet. Conversely, when a teacher knows he/she has a migrant child in class and sets out to ...

Using Adult Learning Techniques In Adult Education Conferences, John A. Henschke Edd Jan 1992

Using Adult Learning Techniques In Adult Education Conferences, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

Conversation abounds regarding the importance of conducing adult education conference through using adult learning techniques which are consistent with what is known about how adults learn. Many professionals already successfully implement this naturally, and experience very positive feedback and results. But many still struggle with the question, "Why don't we practice on ourselves what we say we believe about adult learning?" The question this paper seeks to explore is: Since the field is not very systematic in this, what needs to happen if it is to change? Much published literature suggests various designs and techniques for making the transition ...

Reasons For The Underrepresentation Of Females At Head Of Department Level In Physical Education In Government Secondary Schools In Western Australia: Perceptions Of Female Physical Education Teachers, Regina D. Bloot Jan 1992

Reasons For The Underrepresentation Of Females At Head Of Department Level In Physical Education In Government Secondary Schools In Western Australia: Perceptions Of Female Physical Education Teachers, Regina D. Bloot

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

This study focuses on reasons why so few females hold Head of Department positions in physical education in government secondary schools in Western Australia. Despite the almost equitable proportion of females and males teaching the subject, and the absence of Ministry of Education policy constraints on female promotion since 1972, females remain grossly underrepresented in leadership roles. In 1991, women held only five (7%) of the 70 substantive Head of Department appointments. Individual indepth interviews were used as the means of data collection to document female teachers' own accounts of their lives, career aspirations, and what they perceived to be ...

Segregated Schools, Investment In Education, And Property Values In Maryland School Districts: 1924-1955 , Thomas Tenhoeve Iii Jan 1992

Segregated Schools, Investment In Education, And Property Values In Maryland School Districts: 1924-1955 , Thomas Tenhoeve Iii

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Many theoretical models have been developed which describe the educational investment process. Each presents causal relationships among variables such as birth rates, enrollments or attendance, property values, and per-pupil expenditures. The validity of the relationships among such variables as set forth in these theoretical models is tested in a vector-autoregressive setting using Maryland grade school data during the segregated schooling era. The period covered is from 1924 to 1955. A vector-autoregressive approach is taken because it makes no a priori assumptions about variable relationships. The causal structure of the vector-autoregressive model alone empirically determines the relationships of the relevant variables ...

Developing A User-Cordial Online Retrieval Model Strategy To Access Extension Educational Materials From A North Central Region Database , Martha Maria Brown

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

There is concern that the Cooperative Extension Service (CES) is not implementing electronic communication technologies rapidly enough to effectively compete with other information providers. Anxiety regarding electronic information-accessing strategies must be overcome with appropriate orientation and training so their use becomes routine. Extension personnel need an efficient, easy-to-use method of accessing online data-base in order to comply with the CES mission of assisting people in improving their lives. The purpose of this study was to extend the existing North Central Region Educational Materials Project (NCREMP) information search system by developing an online search strategy that is an easily-used tool for ...

Determining The Content And Structure For An Agricultural Electronics Course , Neal Joseph Schlautman Jan 1992

Determining The Content And Structure For An Agricultural Electronics Course , Neal Joseph Schlautman

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

An agricultural electronics course was developed for the Agricultural Systems Technology degree program at Iowa State University. Resources utilized in the curriculum development process were course syllabi from other institutions and the input of industry experts;Twenty-seven institutions were contacted to determine the current status of agricultural electronics education in American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) recognized agricultural technology and management curricula. The results indicated that less than one-half of these curricula offer an agricultural electronics course. Little agreement from one institution to another on course content was found for those agricultural technology and management curricula that offer an agricultural ...

The Use Of Noncognitive Variables To Predict The Academic Success Of Student Athletes , Charles William Walker Jan 1992

The Use Of Noncognitive Variables To Predict The Academic Success Of Student Athletes , Charles William Walker

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Freshmen and Sophomore student-athletes and a control group of matched students (N = 234) at Iowa State University were administered the Noncognitive Questionnaire (NCQ). The NCQ has been shown to have validity in predicting first semester grade point averages;The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of noncognitive variables as predictors of first semester grade point averages of student-athletes;Results Showed that the three of the eight NCQ constructs (Community service, Support person and knowledge acquired in field) combined to predict first semester grade point averages of student-athletes (R =.38; p <.05). ACT scores had essentially no correlation with athletes grades (R =.05);It was concluded that ACT scores should not be used to prevent athletes from competing in their first year;Suggestions for programs that incorporated NCQ variables are made.

These clusters were used in constructing ...
