25 - Older Adults’ Perceptions Of Science And Engineering In Appalachia, Hannah Harris Nov 2018

25 - Older Adults’ Perceptions Of Science And Engineering In Appalachia, Hannah Harris

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

The aim of this study is to document the perceptions of science and engineering in Appalachia by conducting semi-structured interview case studies. The information procured from the interviews will support the design of Appalachian science and engineering education activities for schools in the North Georgia region. Participants (n = 4) were asked a series of questions about their perceptions of science and engineering, along with sharing an item that highlights science and engineering in Appalachia, which was subsequently photographed. Each interview was transcribed and coded. The term science was often defined science as a subject that included chemistry, physics, and electronics ...


32 - Introducing Renewable Energy Through Community-Based Engaged Learning, Nick Palmer Nov 2018

32 - Introducing Renewable Energy Through Community-Based Engaged Learning, Nick Palmer

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

We live in a period where human expansion has put its own existence at risk. Local sustainable development strategies are key in reversing these global effects, but only if they are easily accessible and supported by the community. However, gathering that support can be difficult. Reaching a communal understanding of underlying scientific mechanisms starts at a young age and is difficult to develop without hands-on experiences. Community based engaged learning (C-bEL) programs provide these experiences for community members while simultaneously supplying teaching opportunities for college students. We developed a stand-alone workshop for local Baldwin county schools that utilizes renewable energy ...


Engaging The Public Through Science Festivals, Anthony Sacchitello, Macey Jarrard Nov 2018

Engaging The Public Through Science Festivals, Anthony Sacchitello, Macey Jarrard

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Science festivals are informal learning experiences intended to engage the community in science by facilitating dialogues between scientists and the public. While the intention is to connect the community to science professionals, little is known about attendee motivation and application of information gained at the event. The study documented science festival attendees (n=42) motivation, application of information intent, events attended, and topics learned about at events. 39% of attendees attended science talks with an expert that was also in the attendee’s area of expertise, nearly one-third of participants attended discussion panels, and 20% of recorded activities were hands-on ...


9 - Behavior Responses In The Inclusion Setting, Alexandria Kesselring, Casey Carroll Nov 2018

9 - Behavior Responses In The Inclusion Setting, Alexandria Kesselring, Casey Carroll

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Behavior Responses in the Inclusion Setting

Many general education teachers in public schools are experiencing behavior issues within inclusion classrooms. General education teachers tend to struggle with responding to disciplinary issues when teaching students with disabilities. The purpose of this article is to observe two different general education teachers, both teaching in an inclusion social studies setting at the high school level, and how they respond to disciplinary issues within their classroom. Data were collected from two different social studies classrooms, one US History classroom with 11thgraders and one Economics classrooms with 12thgraders. In the US ...


5 - Sustainability Of An Established Cure Curriculum At Primarily Undergraduate Institutions, Nicole Scheuermann, Sue Ellen Dechenne-Peters Nov 2018

5 - Sustainability Of An Established Cure Curriculum At Primarily Undergraduate Institutions, Nicole Scheuermann, Sue Ellen Dechenne-Peters

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

Course-Based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) are laboratory curriculum designed to expand the inclusivity of research opportunities for undergraduate students. CUREs provide the experience and benefits of scientific research, and those benefits and experiences at an earlier point in students’ education. These qualities mean CUREs can be of great value to primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs), but faculty at these institutions who wish to design and/or implement a CURE can face major barriers including lack of time and resources.

We provided professional development and ongoing support for the implementation of an established CURE at two PUIs. The CURE was taught by ...


Critical School Policy Review, Amber Leggett Nov 2018

Critical School Policy Review, Amber Leggett

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the transformation of the current school behavior expectation and see how they correlate with the new suggested implementation of positive behavior interventions and support (PBIS) in a rural South Georgia school. This study intends to review the school's current discipline system and use these behavior expectations to convert them into a PBIS format. The goal of this study is to create a PBIS matrix and influence the current behavior expectation to a more PBIS school-wide behavior expectations. This research will take place in a middle school in rural South Georgia. The ...

Children's Books Featuring Diverse Family Structures And Living Arrangements: Recommendations For Elementary Teachers, Katie J. Waters Feb 2018

Children's Books Featuring Diverse Family Structures And Living Arrangements: Recommendations For Elementary Teachers, Katie J. Waters

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

The large number of children living in non-traditional families in the U.S. indicates a critical need for teachers to incorporate quality children’s books portraying a variety of home lives and family situations. I searched for such books through electronic databases and Amazon and obtained print books to review. Using selection criteria such as positive reader and editorial reviews on Amazon, engaging illustrations, and interesting plot, I compiled a list of 50 books published since 2000 that featured families with a variety of compositions and living arrangements. I then narrowed this selection to a recommended list of 10 books ...


Is There A Relationship Between Mathematics Background And Conception Of Proof?, Amanda Akin, Elizabeth Rawson, Allison B. Bernhard, Casey Mcgrath Feb 2018

Is There A Relationship Between Mathematics Background And Conception Of Proof?, Amanda Akin, Elizabeth Rawson, Allison B. Bernhard, Casey Mcgrath

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

To invest in the future of mathematics education is to invest in our future teachers. Equipping such individuals should be the utmost priority, for they will communicate mathematics to our students. Research shows that the way we work with and explain mathematics is consequential to our proof scheme; that is, the proof schemes we hold are the proof schemes we will inevitably teach. This study explores the possible proof schemes and mindsets held by ten university students studying mathematics education at Lee University--six enrolled in a geometry course and four in an algebra course. Through interviews and critical thinking exercises ...


Students With Mild Cerebral Palsy In The Classroom: Information And Guidelines For Teachers, Samantha R. Tindal Feb 2018

Students With Mild Cerebral Palsy In The Classroom: Information And Guidelines For Teachers, Samantha R. Tindal

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

Teachers often feel unprepared to meet the needs of students with mild physical disabilities as these students’ needs are not as obvious as students with severe disabilities. In order to create a resource for teachers who have students with mild cerebral palsy (CP) in their classrooms, I conducted structured one-hour interviews with four young adults with mild CP about their experiences in school. An analysis of the interview transcripts uncovered four common themes: (a) bullying experiences in elementary school, (b) teacher support and accommodations in school, (c) being asked about their disability, and (d) being grateful for having “mild” cerebral ...

Transformational Leadership In Education: A Review Of Existing Literature, Matthew Anderson Sep 2017

Transformational Leadership In Education: A Review Of Existing Literature, Matthew Anderson

International Social Science Review

School systems face unprecedented local, state, and federal accountability for school performance and student achievement. School systems and schools themselves have begun to function like business organizations with management complexities and the requirement of bottom line results. School leadership is a critical component to good performance and student achievement. There is concern over whether or not school leaders have the proper management skills and leadership styles and approaches necessary to ensure effective operational performance of schools. Schools have become like business organizations and may benefit from leadership styles proven to enhance performance in business organizations and school settings. Education leaders ...


Virginia Woolf's Views On The Necessity Of Education For Girls, Elizabeth R. Doolittle Jul 2015

Virginia Woolf's Views On The Necessity Of Education For Girls, Elizabeth R. Doolittle

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

This paper examines Virginia Woolf’s views regarding educational equality for women and girls. It traces her views through her non-fiction works A Room of One’s Own and Three Guineas and through the modern era with an analysis of activist Malala Yousafzai’s views on educational reform and educational equality for all children displayed in her memoir I Am Malala. The paper seeks to prove that Woolf believed a well-educated female populous could help dismantle the type of masculine, violent culture that was constantly at war, both throughout her life and throughout history, and contribute to lasting world peace ...


Co-Learners And Core: Education Reform At Saint Joseph's College, Eric A. Hall May 2014

Co-Learners And Core: Education Reform At Saint Joseph's College, Eric A. Hall

International Social Science Review

This essay examines the development, implementation, and assessment of a revolutionary Core Curriculum adopted by Saint Joseph’s College (Indiana) in 1969. It argues that a group of dedicated and pioneering faculty and administrators, led by President Charles Banet, responded to reform movements in higher education and the Catholic Church by replacing the college’s general education curriculum with a Core Program that emphasized collegiality, humanism, and faculty-led discussions in which professors acted as “co-learners” rather than experts. The college’s pragmatic interpretation of the Second Vatican Council, which convened from 1962-1965, combined with innovative new literature on curriculum reform ...

The Relevance And Redefining Of Du Bois's Talented Tenth: Two Centuries Later, L'Monique King Jun 2013

The Relevance And Redefining Of Du Bois's Talented Tenth: Two Centuries Later, L'Monique King

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

In 1903, philosopher and scholar William Edward Burghardt “W.E.B.” Du Bois expanded upon the concept of “Talented Tenth,” a term coined in an essay [circa 1896] by Reverend Henry Lyman Morehouse, minister and member of American Baptist Home Mission Society (ABHMS). Garnering greater attention, Du Bois’s essay on Negro education, entitled “The Talented Tenth,” focused on a segment of the entire American Negro population instead of Morehouse’s inspiration of a fraction of the men of Augusta Institute (later renamed Morehouse College). From its conception, Du Bois’s essay would be scrutinized for its practicality and perceived ...

For the quantitative data, a pre and post-test was given to students using ...


Representing The Portrayal Of Pilgrims In Elementary History Textbooks And The Myth Of The Founding Of The American Nation, Cecelia L. Parks May 2012

Representing The Portrayal Of Pilgrims In Elementary History Textbooks And The Myth Of The Founding Of The American Nation, Cecelia L. Parks

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

Both students and teachers consider textbooks reference sources. This accepted authority helps textbooks to persuasively establish particular myths surrounding the events discussed. This paper examines the way that Pilgrim portrayals in two popular elementary United States history textbooks construct a national myth that America is founded on ideals of tolerance, multiculturalism, and freedom. Three elements of the Pilgrims’ story, the First Thanksgiving, Pilgrim-Native American relations, and the Pilgrims’ American ideals, represent Pilgrims as hard-working people who came to America to find religious freedom and found a society based on democratic ideals. Such accounts suggest that Pilgrims lived harmoniously with Native ...
