An Intergenerational Drama Program Utilizing Community Based Learning, Bennett Harrell Mar 2019

An Intergenerational Drama Program Utilizing Community Based Learning, Bennett Harrell

National Youth-At-Risk Conference Savannah

Participants in this workshop will engage in ensemble building drama activities. These activities will lead to the creation of multiple pieces of drama. The participants will also develop a list of interview questions they can use if they choose to implement the project at their schools or organizations. Many of the activities are from Augusto Boal’s “Theatre of the Oppressed,” a genre of theatre born out of the necessities of people who experience oppression. It provides them tools to explore the oppression and ways to face it in the real world.

Target audience: Teachers at all levels; Principals and ...


Together We Know A Lot: Consensus Decision Making In The Classroom, Avery C. Edenfield Dec 2018

Together We Know A Lot: Consensus Decision Making In The Classroom, Avery C. Edenfield

Avery C. Edenfield

Student group work is common practice in many courses whether they are focused on writing theory or application. The purpose of this review is to introduce one strategy for teaching cooperative teamwork. It is easy to say to a group of students, “decide as a group…” It is less common, and I am certainly guilty of this, to provide clear directions on how to decide as a group.


10 - Embodied Composition Pedagogy, Amanda Ayers Nov 2018

10 - Embodied Composition Pedagogy, Amanda Ayers

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

This study evaluates the relevance and effectiveness of embodied composition pedagogies. The current literature argues the benefit of incorporating the body into the classroom, especially for racially marginalized students. Through literary analysis, three indicators of embodied pedagogy were identified: 1) discussion based learning, 2) multimodality, and 3) process oriented writing assessments. The methods for implementing embodied pedagogy can be identified by these indicators and evaluated for effectiveness. In spring 2019, I will begin the second phase of my research which will analyze applied embodied pedagogy in composition 1101 and 1102 classrooms. Through student surveys and professor interviews, the effectiveness of ...

In Search Of The Wind-Band (Video Trailer) Book Video Excerpts From Around The Globe, Dan Rager

Dan Rager

 “International Instrumental Dissemination” describes instrument types in 16 countries that include Rock & Roll to Sousa and Puccini. This book explores detailed and precise history. The 21 chapters contain hundreds of photos, videos, mp3 and pdf files bringing to life unknown cultures and ensembles from around the globe from which I visited and recorded first hand. The book is designed to take an entire semester to study and explore. I promise you have never heard or seen most of these groups much less the enormous, precise evolution of instruments presented in the book. Where did our modern instruments evolve from? Do ...


Teaching Creative Writing In The Age Of Common Core, Casey Unverferth Feb 2016

Teaching Creative Writing In The Age Of Common Core, Casey Unverferth

Honors Projects

The core of my honors project includes a 12-day unit plan for teaching creative writing in the form of narratives. I created lessons for 12 days, created the materials needed for each day, and created a website where my work has been displayed for my future classroom. The website link is: teachcreatewrite.weebly.com. All materials for the unit plan are broken down by day, and I chose to expand upon 3 days in a short lesson plan template.

On Reading & Teaching The Modern Long Poem, With Reference To Williams's 'Paterson' & Two Passages From Eliot's 'The Waste Land', Eric Alan Weinstein, Alan Filreis Jan 2015

On Reading & Teaching The Modern Long Poem, With Reference To Williams's 'Paterson' & Two Passages From Eliot's 'The Waste Land', Eric Alan Weinstein, Alan Filreis

Eric Alan Weinstein

Eric Alan Weinstein and Al Filreis spent some time in the Wexler Studio of the Kelly Writers House talking about the problematics of the modern long poem. Can it be taught? Why is it so challenging, despite its central importance? The discussion is intentionally general at first, but soon Eric and Al turn to Eliot's The Waste Land, and in particular to two modally quite distinct passages from the poem. This is a PennSound podcast, number 46 in the ongoing series. To see all episodes at once please see the PennSound archive. To see the series as part of ...


Investigating The Effectiveness Of Problem-Based Learning In 3d Virtual Worlds. A Preliminary Report On The Hadrian’S Villa Project, Lee Taylor-Helms, Lynne. Kvapil, John Fillwalk, Bernard Frischer Nov 2014

Investigating The Effectiveness Of Problem-Based Learning In 3d Virtual Worlds. A Preliminary Report On The Hadrian’S Villa Project, Lee Taylor-Helms, Lynne. Kvapil, John Fillwalk, Bernard Frischer

Lynne Kvapil

This paper discusses a recent study to test the effectiveness of combining 3D virtual worlds (VWs) with Problem Based Learning (PBL) in archaeological education of undergraduate college students at two American universities. The testbed used was a virtual world of Hadrian’s Villa at Tivoli (Italy), a World Heritage Site dating to the reign of Hadrian (117-138 CE). At both universities courses were offered on the villa using a PBL approach in such a way that the relative strengths and weaknesses of learning based on face-to-face, 2D, and VW presentations could be assessed. The study helped to clarify ways in ...
