From Teacher To Teacher-Leader: A Phenomenographic Study Of Transition, Jennifer Santi Dec 2020

From Teacher To Teacher-Leader: A Phenomenographic Study Of Transition, Jennifer Santi

Doctor of Education in Teacher Leadership Dissertations

As Education evolves, the roles within traditional teaching and learning also evolve. School structures change and leadership roles within those structures change as well, creating and recreating the educational experience for students and practitioners alike. As these structures change the nature of education, the roles found within them also transform what it means to be a professional educator. Increases in teacher-leadership positions have led to more instructional coaching roles for teachers and it is necessary to understand how those roles are perceived by those that are now changing the nature of their chosen work. As teachers leave the classroom to ...


The Fear Of Reptiles And How To Change It, Maxwell Lyman Dec 2020

The Fear Of Reptiles And How To Change It, Maxwell Lyman

Honors Projects

Reptile fear is prominent across many cultures. Anti-reptilian attitudes can lead to anti-conservation attitudes towards reptiles. Person-animal interaction has been shown to decrease fear desensitization and increase positive attitudes towards "unpopular" animals. My project demonstrates the effectiveness of live animal presentation in dispelling negative attitudes of reptiles. However, due to the sample size of the project, further research is highly suggested.

Master's Projects and Capstones

The following discusses adolescent depression and anxiety and the utilization of physical activity as an intervention or coping mechanism. Adolescents have been experiencing increased rates of anxiety or depression diagnoses over the past roughly two decades. Adolescence is, physiologically, a formative period in the developmental stage from childhood to adulthood. Current barriers to achieving optimal mental health among the adolescent population include the stigmatization of mental health issues, lack of education, socioeconomic status and healthcare access. Further, physical activity has been studied and identified to be an effective treatment for individuals experiencing depression and anxiety. In an effort to treat ...


Bringing C.A.R.E. To The Online Classroom, Charlotte A. Jones-Roberts Nov 2020

Bringing C.A.R.E. To The Online Classroom, Charlotte A. Jones-Roberts

FDLA Journal

Incorporating the element of care is important in creating a positive, online learning experience. This is even more true in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, and students are reporting increased feelings of stress and isolation. Combining the ideas of humanized online learning, social presence, and care can help instructors to foster and nurture online learning communities. The author attempts to simplify itemized strategies instructors can employ to form the mnemonic device “C.A.R.E.” which stands for: Connection, Attention, Respect, and Energy.

How To Create And Sustain Effective Two-Way Bilingual Programs, Thalia Nunez Aug 2020

How To Create And Sustain Effective Two-Way Bilingual Programs, Thalia Nunez

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

Over the last few decades, the population of English language learners (ELL) students in the United States of America has increased immensely, which has caused problems in their academic success Many factors contributed to the problem, including unequal educational opportunities. Studies have shown that ELL students do not have access to the same educational opportunities compared to non-ELL students (Linville,2017). There is a large gap in academic achievement between ELL and non-ELL students in the United States (Campbell, Hespe & Martz, 2016). To address such a problem school districts have looked towards implementing bilingual and TESOL programs within their schools ...


Institutional And Supervisory Support For The Thesis By Publication, Shannon Mason, Julia E. Morris, Margaret K. Merga Jun 2020

Institutional And Supervisory Support For The Thesis By Publication, Shannon Mason, Julia E. Morris, Margaret K. Merga

ECU Publications Post 2013

The Thesis by Publication is garnering increasing interest across nations and disciplines. However, more needs to be learned about institutional and supervisory support for this thesis mode to ensure that doctoral candidates pursuing this approach enjoy the best possible outcomes. This paper draws on data from 246 recent successful doctoral candidates who took part in the 2018–2019 PhD candidates’ motivations, experiences, and opinions of the thesis by/with publications study. Findings suggest that perceived institutional support may be more common than supervisory support, and initial institutional support may be eclipsed by ongoing support. Findings suggest that more can be ...


Play-Based Learning In The Classroom, Jenna Clark Apr 2020

Play-Based Learning In The Classroom, Jenna Clark

Senior Scholars Day

The purpose of this study was to observe the effects that play-based instruction and learning activities have on the classroom, and more specifically, my own teaching practices. This self study used qualitative methods to gather data. Predominantly, a developmental portfolio was used to record observational notes and for daily reflections. Memory work was also used as this study pulled from past experiences with play. Findings showed that play-based learning increased the inclusivity of the general education classroom and levels of student achievement and engagement also increased. The classroom became a positive environment for both the students and teacher, aiding in ...

Teaching The Power Of Pictures, Rachel Speranza Apr 2020

Teaching The Power Of Pictures, Rachel Speranza

KUCC -- Kutztown University Composition Conference

Though choosing sources that have specific copyright that allows for the reuse, modification, and redistribution of pictures is an important lesson for all students of all grade levels, what’s even a more important lesson is that of the power of social media. The perfect picture can spread like a wildfire across all social media platforms. Pictures have the power to change someone’s mood, political opinion, and even advocate for change on the other side of the world.

Students’ Perceptions Of Positive School Experiences: An Investigation On The Similarities And Differences Over Time, Marisa Peczuh Jan 2020

Students’ Perceptions Of Positive School Experiences: An Investigation On The Similarities And Differences Over Time, Marisa Peczuh

Senior Capstone Projects

This study aimed to understand the factors of positive school experiences from children’s own perspectives. The foundation of this research depended on school satisfaction, school connectedness, and academic self-perception. Overall, these terms encompassed general feelings about enjoying school, engaging with the rules and content, and thinking of oneself as smart. I wondered how these variables individually and cohesively contributed to positive school experiences and how these relationships changed depending on students’ ages. Based on previous literature, I predicted that students would feel less positively about their school experiences as their grade level increased. My methodology was based on interviews ...


Postpartum Pains, Lakea Youngblood Dec 2019

Postpartum Pains, Lakea Youngblood

Capstones

The Academy once again came under fire. This time for banning a commercial that advertised a postpartum support. People all over the country became enraged. The Academy seemed more friendly to movies about murder than postpartum, in alignment with the sexist ideas that have been pervasive in this country since its foundations. This short documentary pushes back against this narrative and the silence around postpartum by showing the realities of it through a woman’s journey.

The film is a personal documentary about myself. After having my first child, I found myself traumatized and scarred by the pains of postpartum ...

#37 - The Parental Involvement And K-12 Experiences Of Rise Students, Madison Rodriguez, Josue Zavala

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Most teachers across the United States self-identify as white American. The ethnic backgrounds of students and teachers is disproportionate due to the increasing diversity in the public school systems. Literature based on this topic has significantly increased in the past decade due to the mass migration of Latinos to the United States. For example, Soloranzo talks about the critical race theory in education and how it works towards the progression of teachers of color and eliminating racism in U.S. education (Soloranzo p.7). In order to address this problem, the UNG College of Education and Hall County School District ...

The doctoral advisor, typically the principal investigator (PI), is often characterized as a singular or primary mentor who guides students using a cognitive apprenticeship model. Alternatively, the cascading mentorship model describes the members of laboratories or research groups receiving mentorship from more senior laboratory members and providing it to more junior members (i.e., PIs mentor postdocs, postdocs mentor senior graduate students, senior students mentor junior students, etc.). Here we show that PIs laboratory and mentoring activities do not significantly predict students skill development trajectories, but the engagement of postdocs and senior graduate students in laboratory interactions do. We found ...
