Japanese American Youth In Topaz Relocation Center, Utah: An Oral History, Akiko J. Tohmatsu May 1994

Japanese American Youth In Topaz Relocation Center, Utah: An Oral History, Akiko J. Tohmatsu

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This project examines Japanese American youth in Topaz High School, a school set up in a War Relocation Center during 1942 to 1945. It looks at what students were taught there, as well as what they felt, thought, heard, and saw. Oral histories collected from Japanese American former internees constitute the main methodology. An oral history enables us to know the feelings and emotions involved in evacuation at the same time as it provides us with more human insight, such as human perspectives and personal reminiscences, which are not available in historical, social, or political accounts.

Findings of this project ...


Psychosocial Correlates Of Criminal Behavior: Identity Styles Of Male Inmates In The Utah State Prison, Joseph M. White May 1994

Psychosocial Correlates Of Criminal Behavior: Identity Styles Of Male Inmates In The Utah State Prison, Joseph M. White

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

One hundred ninety-four inmates responded to a measure

that taps Erikson's fifth stage of psychosocial development,

dealing with the issues of identity. Information concerning

previous and current criminal activity, along with basic

demographic information, was also collected. Cross-checks

conducted on selected information within the Utah State

Department of Correction's computer system suggest validity

for inmate self-reports. The criminal behavior questions

were addressed in two main sections: previous and current

criminal behavior.

Results illustrate consistent relationships that exist

between criminal behavior and cognitive identity style (the

corollary to Marcia's identity statuses). The identity

styles represent the process involved ...

High School And University Student Test Performance In The Study Of Human Growth And Development: A Concurrent Enrollment Study, Harold O. Monson

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Concurrent enrollment of high school students in college classes is becoming more common but it has not been clear if high school students can learn the material as well as college students. This study examined high-school and college students' learning by exposing them to the same text, a similar lesson plan, and the same test questions, while controlling for demographic, attitudinal, and experiential variables. Two questions were addressed: (a) Was there a practical difference between high school and college students in their ability to learn the material; and (b) was there a difference in the way they learned the material ...


Examining The Effects Of A Self-Study Package On Teachers' Use Of Coincidental Teaching In Preschool Classrooms, Laurie A. Dinnebeil May 1994

Examining The Effects Of A Self-Study Package On Teachers' Use Of Coincidental Teaching In Preschool Classrooms, Laurie A. Dinnebeil

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This investigation examined the effects of a self-study package on three early childhood special education teachers' use of coincidental teaching with preschool children with, or at risk for, disabilities. The results of this investigation showed that all teachers performed better on a posttest than a pretest measure for knowledge of coincidental teaching. Teachers were also able to complete a series of written assignments pertaining to coincidental teaching. Increases in coincidental teaching knowledge, however, were not accompanied by changes in coincidental teaching behavior for two of the three teachers. Participating teachers reported satisfaction with the self-study package as an instructional format ...


A Case For Inclusion At The Preschool Level, Jill Rae Reed May 1994

A Case For Inclusion At The Preschool Level, Jill Rae Reed

Undergraduate Honors Capstone Projects

Federal and state legislation (i.e., PL 94-142 combined with PL 99-457) Provide for a free and appropriate education for children with disabilities, between the ages of three and 21, in settings with or in close proximity to children without disabilities (Edmister & Ekstrand, 1987; Odom & McEvoy, 1988; Radonovich & Houck, 1990; Salisbury, 1990). Settings in close proximity to children without disabilities are referred to as the least restrictive environment {LRE). The LRE provision requires educational agencies to ensure children with disabilities are, to the maximum extent appropriate, educated with children who are developing typically (Turnbull & Turnbull, 1990). The legislation communicates a clear preference for integration; however, the federal mandate permits state and local education agencies the right ...
