A Call For A Level Playing Field: A Study Of Masculinity 1999-2000, Greer White May 2004

A Call For A Level Playing Field: A Study Of Masculinity 1999-2000, Greer White

Theses

The impetus of this study was a concern for the education and general welfare of boys. The interest in boys' education has grown notably over the past ten years. This interest is evident in media reports, popular psychology texts, education reports and scholarly writing. Academic research on boys' experience of education is less prolific although it does include studies conducted by Australian and international researchers. Central to this commentary on boys' education is the concept of masculinity. Here there is a strong claim that boys' academic performance and behaviour is influenced by the way they construct and live out masculine ...

Using Weblogs In Scholarship And Teaching, David Wiley, Trey Martindale

Faculty Publications

The web has become an important resource for teaching and learning (National Center for Educational Statistics [NCES], 2003).

Hard Times And An Uncertain Future: Issues That Confront The Field Of Emotional/Behavioral Disorders, Robert A. Gable Jan 2004

Hard Times And An Uncertain Future: Issues That Confront The Field Of Emotional/Behavioral Disorders, Robert A. Gable

Communication Disorders & Special Education Faculty Publications

In this article, I examine challenges to better preparing teachers of students with emotional/behavioral disorders (E/BD). Foremost among these challenges is the lack of agreement regarding a conceptual framework upon which to build quality prevention/intervention practices; instead, various authorities advocate disparate approaches, not all of which have empirical support. I assert that unresolved issues surrounding translating scientific research into classroom practice further hinder efforts to apply the most efficacious intervention options, as does our failure to exert control over the infrastructure of public education and the context in which we serve students with E/BD. Finally, I ...
