Applying Positive Language In Mindful Parenting: A Means Of Building Positive Character In Children, Amrina Rosyada, Agustina Ramadhianti Dec 2019

Applying Positive Language In Mindful Parenting: A Means Of Building Positive Character In Children, Amrina Rosyada, Agustina Ramadhianti

ASEAN Journal of Community Engagement

Positive language is a crucial communication tool, both within the family environment and in external circumstances. Previous research endeavors have evidenced that the inculcation of positive language by parents is effective in building positive character in their children. Thus, language is not merely a communication tool; it is also a means of personality development. However, this application cannot be realized if parents are unaware. Therefore, the community service activity proposed in this paper aims to broaden and strengthen mindful parenting, and to enhance the discernment of positive language in parents to help them build positive character in their children. To ...

Trauma-Informed Whole School Approach: A Case Study, Melissa Erickson Dec 2019

Trauma-Informed Whole School Approach: A Case Study, Melissa Erickson

School of Education Student Capstone Theses and Dissertations

Today, trauma is known to affect two-thirds of children, making it a high probability that students affected by trauma are sitting in every classroom around the United States (McInerney & McKlindon, 2014). Cole et al. (2005) described schools as being, “...significant communities for children and teachers” (p. 1). This poses a challenge for schools across the United States to know how to engage students who are affected by trauma in their learning. Trauma leads to adverse effects on how a student will learn, behave, and respond socially and emotionally in the classroom (Cole et al., 2005). Therefore, educators need to have ...


Caught At A Crossroads: Secondary Principals’ Perceptions Of Change Agentry Within Two Paradigms Of Education, Raymond Delgado Dec 2019

Caught At A Crossroads: Secondary Principals’ Perceptions Of Change Agentry Within Two Paradigms Of Education, Raymond Delgado

Ed.D. Dissertations in Leadership for Educational Justice

Secondary school principals increasingly face the challenge of working in the space between the existing, obsolete paradigm of education (standardized testing and accountability) and the paradigm that has yet to come into existence (i.e., a radically different way of thinking about education as a social system). Principals continue to be held accountable for increasing student achievement (based on continued use of assessment tools that are inadequate to prepare students for the realities of the 21st Century) while implementing a paradigm that does address realities for the 21st Century. Such a paradigm emphasizes cognitive development where thinking, through reciprocal processes ...


Motivational Factors Of Why Traditional-Age College Men Volunteer, Tony D. Mueller Dec 2019

Motivational Factors Of Why Traditional-Age College Men Volunteer, Tony D. Mueller

Ed.D. Dissertations in Leadership for Educational Justice

Service outreach at the collegiate level has gained in popularity over the last 30 to 40 years to engage undergraduates volunteering off-campus communities in ways prior generations had not experienced; yet, traditional-aged collegiate males volunteer less than their female counterparts. The lack of volunteer service by collegiate men affects communities with financial and social implications but there are developmental and educational consequences for men as well. Few phenomenological studies look at the factors for why collegiate men perform volunteer service and this study explored those reasons. Using Deci and Ryan’s (2002) Self-Determination Theory (SDT) in referencing motivational outcomes, this ...

Organizational Health As A Foundation For Inclusion In The Least Restrictive Environment, Kristin Brooks

Ed.D. Dissertations in Leadership for Educational Justice

Inclusive education, although a civil right and moral imperative, is a complex issue complicated by societal and organizational cultures, policies, and practices where leadership teams are tasked with identifying and removing barriers to participation and student achievement. Examining school communities through their organizational health is a means of illuminating what changes could be made to improve inclusion and achievement for all students. In this research study, the relationship between organizational health and inclusion of students with disabilities in elementary and secondary local educational agencies (LEAs) in California was examined. A quantitative approach was used to analyze the results from the ...

Reflections On Critical Pedagogy In America Latina: La Lucha Continua, Peter Mclaren Dec 2019

Reflections On Critical Pedagogy In America Latina: La Lucha Continua, Peter Mclaren

Education Faculty Articles and Research

"When I speak in Mexico, I support efforts there to create a revolutionary critical pedagogy—one that has not been domesticated and depotentiated by neoliberal dogma. This means the inclusion of a decolonial pedagogy which challenges the “coloniality of power” (patron de poder colonial) that still resides at the heart of post-colonial societies. I would advise as a central, overarching goal of critical pedagogy the struggle for a socialist alternative to the “value form of labor” that exists in capitalist societies throughout North and South America, and that such efforts must be transnational in scope since capitalism is now transnational ...

The Lasting Effects Of Learning Communities, Emily E. Virtue, Gayle Maddox, Ken Pfaff Dec 2019

The Lasting Effects Of Learning Communities, Emily E. Virtue, Gayle Maddox, Ken Pfaff

Learning Communities Research and Practice

A majority of the research on the impact of learning communities has focused on the positive outcomes for students in their first year of study (Andrade, 2007; Goldman, 2012; Laverick, 2018; Wathington, Pretlow, & Mitchell, 2010). Less is known about the impact of learning community involvement as students complete their enrollment and persist through their next three (or more) years of education. Recent studies have addressed learning community involvement using qualitative measures. This article adds to the literature on learning community impact by describing an investigation of how juniors and seniors characterize the influence of their first-year learning community participation. Findings ...


Acquiring Social Capital: Conclusions From A Social Science Summer Bridge Community, Matthew Davis, Bonnie Bost Laster Dec 2019

Acquiring Social Capital: Conclusions From A Social Science Summer Bridge Community, Matthew Davis, Bonnie Bost Laster

Learning Communities Research and Practice

In an effort to improve performance and retention of first-year college students, a few institutions have started offering summer bridge programs. Varying from days to weeks or months, these programs offer an extended orientation to college life, teach specific academic skills and/or content, and help students form social connections with peers, faculty, and staff and increasing their social capital. While bridge programs are gaining popularity in STEM fields, there is potential value in expanding these programs to other disciplines. In this analysis, we offer both a narrative summary and findings from our summer bridge program and living learning community ...


The Relationship Between Metacognitive Reflection, Pbl, And Postformal Thinking Among First-Year Learning Community Students, Charles T. Wynn Sr., Herman Ray, Liyuan Liu Dec 2019

The Relationship Between Metacognitive Reflection, Pbl, And Postformal Thinking Among First-Year Learning Community Students, Charles T. Wynn Sr., Herman Ray, Liyuan Liu

Learning Communities Research and Practice

Wynn, Mosholder, & Larsen (2014, 2016) studied the effect of problem-based learning (PBL) on the development of postformal thinking (PFT) skills among first-year learning community (LC) students and attributed the significant PFT gains, in part, to the metacognitive reflection component of their PBL method, recommending it as a way to facilitate PFT skills. The current study tested this relationship by comparing PFT growth of first-year LC students who practiced metacognitive reflection during six PBL activities in their LC course (n = 20) with PFT growth of students who completed the same PBL activities without metacognitive reflection in a control group section of ...


Fostering Student Agency To Build A Whole Child, Whole School, Whole Community Approach, Holly Henderson Pinter, Lisa Bloom, Amie Broyhill, Kim K. Winter Dec 2019

Fostering Student Agency To Build A Whole Child, Whole School, Whole Community Approach, Holly Henderson Pinter, Lisa Bloom, Amie Broyhill, Kim K. Winter

Middle Grades Review

In this practitioner perspective, we explore the concept of student agency through the implementation of a student government association in a laboratory middle school. Interviews with a social studies teacher and her students offer perspectives of the impact of student voice and choice for student experiences. We describe three major lessons learned through this implementation process: students learn to have healthy conflict and cooperative skills; students learn the appropriate processes to enact change in a democratic society; and students learn to conduct service for their peers, school, and community.
