The Impact Of A Flipped Lesson On Secondary Language Arts Students’ Ability To Write A Cohesive Research Essay, Nafeesah Muhammad Dec 2014

The Impact Of A Flipped Lesson On Secondary Language Arts Students’ Ability To Write A Cohesive Research Essay, Nafeesah Muhammad

Masters of Arts in Education Action Research Papers

In my study, I explored the question: what impact will a flipped lesson have on secondary Language Arts students’ ability to write a cohesive research essay? Research shows that a flip classroom approach to instruction can be an effective strategy when teaching procedural skills in a content area (Bergmann & Sams, 2012; Fulton, 2012). The data sources include student surveys, student rough draft writing sample, student reflection response, student final draft writing sample. It is difficult to conclude if the flipped lesson made a substantial impact on the students’ ability to construct a coherent research essay due to lack of involvement in the ...

Where Is The Evidence? Realising The Value Of Grey Literature For Public Policy & Practice: A Discussion Paper, Amanda Lawrence, John Houghton, Julian Thomas, Paul R. Weldon Nov 2014

Where Is The Evidence? Realising The Value Of Grey Literature For Public Policy & Practice: A Discussion Paper, Amanda Lawrence, John Houghton, Julian Thomas, Paul R. Weldon

Dr Paul Weldon

The internet has profoundly changed how we produce, use and collect research and information for public policy and practice, with grey literature playing an increasingly important role. The authors argue that grey literature (i.e. material produced and published by organisations without recourse to the commercial or scholarly publishing industry) is a key part of the evidence produced and used for public policy and practice. Through surveys of users, producing organisations and collecting services a detailed picture is provided of the importance and economic value of grey literature. However, finding and accessing policy information is a time-consuming task made harder ...

Challenges For Novice Principals: Facing 21st-Century Issues In School Administration, Russell L. Claxton, Samuel J. Smith Sep 2014

Challenges For Novice Principals: Facing 21st-Century Issues In School Administration, Russell L. Claxton, Samuel J. Smith

Russell L. Claxton

Challenges for novice school leaders evolve as information is managed differently and as societal and regulatory expectations change. This study addresses unique challenges faced by practicing principals (n=159) during their first three years of the principalship. It focuses on their perceptions, how perceptions of present novices compare to those of experienced school leaders, and how pre-service programs can better prepare them for these challenges. Findings revealed that two themes shared relatively the same prominence among experienced leaders as they did with novices: navigating politics and gaining a sense of credibility. Experienced leaders expounded more on specific political hurdles with ...


Vygotsky In Twenty-First-Century Research, Irina M. Verenikina Sep 2014

Vygotsky In Twenty-First-Century Research, Irina M. Verenikina

I. Verenikina

At the 2008 Ed-Media conference, a list of most often cited papers in Ed-Media 2004-2008 was revealed (Ochoa, Mendez & Duval, 2009). Vygotsky’s theoretical work, originally published in Russia in the 1930s, came top of the list by a large margin. This paper examines why, and how this theory still can be relevant to twenty-first-century research. It is argued that an effective use of modern educational technologies calls for the use of advanced pedagogies. Vygotsky’s theory provides a profound understanding of teaching and learning that reflect the complexity of social and cultural contexts in the modern learner. The most ...

Choices Made By Elementary Teachers When Implementing Digital Literacies, Nicole M. Inzana May 2014

Choices Made By Elementary Teachers When Implementing Digital Literacies, Nicole M. Inzana

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

The purpose of this study was to determine what types of choices teachers make when choosing technology to implement in their ELA instruction. A funneling approach was used to collect the data over a period of six weeks. Sixteen teachers were anonymously surveyed followed by four teacher interviews. Lastly, two observations were conducted in classrooms with daily access to a class set of netbooks. Analysis of survey data, recorded interviews, and observational notes gave insight into how teachers choose literacy technologies for their students. All of the tools used in this study provided for triangulation of data revealing common themes.

Comparison Of Two Word Learning Techniques And The Effect Of Neighborhood Density For Late Talkers, Shari L. Deveney, Cynthia J. Cress, Robert Reid

Special Education and Communication Disorders Faculty Publications

The investigators compared two techniques for teaching expressive vocabulary to late talkers: modeling with an expectant pause and modeling with an evoked child production. They also explored the influence of neighborhood density on children’s real word learning. Three late talkers (ages 25–33 months) received two alternating vocabulary treatments (expectant pause and evoked production) in the home. Two participants were identified as having an expressive language delay, and one participant was identified as having an expressive and receptive language delay. During the expectant pause treatment, the clinician paused several seconds after each target word model, looking at the child ...
