Exploring Psychological Invisibility In Formerly Incarcerated Black Men, Dallas Wright Jul 2019

Exploring Psychological Invisibility In Formerly Incarcerated Black Men, Dallas Wright

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

Psychological invisibility is a condition wherein a person feels that their personal identity, value and ability are devalued as a result of repeated prejudicial slights experienced during interpersonal encounters. Developed by Anderson Franklin, the theory has been used to conceptualize how Black men experience racism and its effects. Mass incarceration has disproportionately impacted Black men, but research has yet to explicitly address how past imprisonment may influence this population’s experiences with invisibility. Seven formerly incarcerated Black men were interviewed to explore their experiences and perceptions of invisibility. Emergent themes were: invisibility is painful, invisibility is pervasive, attunement to power ...

Education, Order, And The Specter Of Emancipation, Alex B. Cameron Apr 2019

Education, Order, And The Specter Of Emancipation, Alex B. Cameron

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

This thesis is a theoretical meditation on the modern project of education. Situated in the broad field of critical studies in education, this work aims to consider the work of Hannah Arendt and Jacques Ranciere in context of the contemporary rationalities and technologies of schooling. By highlighting the modern promise of emancipation against the restraining ideologies and alienation of the world, this thesis proposes a revision and reemphasis on education’s possibilities for something radically different. The totalitarianism of the modern laboring society and the rise of technological power channel education’s aims to particular ends. The predominance of the ...


The Neoliberal Pariah, Jeremiah Howe Apr 2019

The Neoliberal Pariah, Jeremiah Howe

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

This thesis explores primarily the work of Hannah Arendt and its relationship with the milieu of 21st century U.S. capitalism, sometimes referred to as neoliberal capitalism. Beginning with her work on Jewish pariahdom, this paper explores the Arendtian pariah’s journey from a useful sociological phylum in studying The Jewish Question, to its capitalist iteration as an apt description of the lived reality of the white working-class. As Parvikko (1996) explains, Arendt worked on three levels of abstraction in order to tie the phenomenal to the theoretical so that she could frame the individual. In so doing, Arendt was ...

Dance Education For The Lifetime Learner: From Margaret H’Doubler To The 21st Century, Krista Zozulia

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

This paper will explore the development of dance education starting from the original conception of Margaret H’Doubler. The literature surrounding this topic will be focused primarily on the work of philosophers Émile Durkheim, Karl Marx, John Dewey, Frédéric Lordon, Hannah Arendt, Jacques Rancière, and Ivan Illich to critically examine H’Doubler’s inauguration of the first dance major in higher education in 1926. Further, this paper will explore movement as a mode of learning, as a practice that embodies epistemology and questions the political nature of the corporeal body; dance as way to assemble life, to become a lifetime ...


Online Versus Traditional End-Of-Life Care Education In Nursing: An Integrative Literature Review, Emily Wolff Mar 2019

Online Versus Traditional End-Of-Life Care Education In Nursing: An Integrative Literature Review, Emily Wolff

Grace Peterson Nursing Research Colloquium

Abstract

Background: Professional nurses spend more time with patients who are dying than any other health care professional. However, studies show that nurses feel unprepared, or unequipped, to provide adequate end-of-life (EOL) care to these patients, which has directed many organizations to dedicate resources to the development of effective EOL care education programs. The most effective and efficient method for EOL care education delivery is yet to be determined.

Objectives: The purpose of this integrative literature review is to examine the existing research regarding the efficacies of online and traditional EOL care education methods for professional nurses because the reported ...

Endrew F. Clairvoyance, Mark Weber Jan 2019

Endrew F. Clairvoyance, Mark Weber

College of Law Faculty

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals has declared that “Prior decisions of this Court are consistent with the Supreme Court’s decision in Endrew F.,” the 2017 Supreme Court decision interpreting the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act obligation to furnish students with disabilities free, appropriate public education. This Essay considers whether that statement is accurate, and concludes that while some of the past Second Circuit decisions fit comfortably with Endrew F. ex rel. Joseph F. v. Douglas County School District RE-1, others do not. The Essay submits that the court of appeals should confess a lack of clairvoyance in its ...


From Unicorn To University Professor: Programs Break Down Barriers For Underrepresented Students Nov 2018

From Unicorn To University Professor: Programs Break Down Barriers For Underrepresented Students

DePaul Magazine

As employers seek to diversify their workforces, demand has never been greater for well-educated employees from underrepresented backgrounds. The university’s McNair Scholars program, a federally funded TRIO program, guides juniors and seniors from low-income, first-generation or underrepresented backgrounds to PhDs and academic careers. Going a step further, DePaul created the Arnold Mitchem Fellows program to prepare sophomores for research-based careers and the McNair program. Mitchem also serves juniors and seniors who fall outside of the McNair program’s narrow parameters, such as students pursuing a combined MD/PhD or an MFA.

Arts-Inclusive Education in Nursing Schools: An Integrative Literature Review

Michelle Murtaugh, DePaul University

Category: Research Abstract

Background: Nursing educators have long recognized and championed the value of art within a professional nursing science curriculum, yet many nursing programs exclude the study of the arts. Research suggests that an arts-inclusive nursing curriculum not only enhances student learning, communication, self-efficacy, and clinical confidence, but also positively impacts patient outcomes. To address this gap between what is needed and what is currently offered, some schools are collaborating with art museums to offer arts-based courses in nursing sciences, designed to enhance students’ competency and ...

Motivation To Lead: College Students' Perceptions Of Their Roles As Leaders On Campus, Jacob M. Gross Nov 2018

Motivation To Lead: College Students' Perceptions Of Their Roles As Leaders On Campus, Jacob M. Gross

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

Student leadership in college has long been studied from the perspective of the university, and more specifically, how the university supports its student leaders in hopes of enhancing institutional reputation. With this in mind, there is little attention given to the micro-level experience of college student leaders. As such, researchers are called to shift the rhetoric on student leadership away from an institutionally-driven conceptualization to a more student-focused discourse. The central aim of this study was to gather student leader perceptions of their roles as campus leaders and construct meaning behind those perceptions. This qualitative research study examined the phenomenology ...

The Image Betrays More Than It Reveals: Inter(Ior) Views From Women Of Color On Identity And Social And Academic Experiences In Higher Education, Amy Hauenstein

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation proposes a further conceptualization of intersectional identity as a fundamental topic in education reform research. Overlaying the theoretical lenses of Critical Race Theory and intersectionality, a modified narrative inquiry methodology was used to investigate the self-perceived identities among seven women of color, who are alumnae of an all-girls secondary school, in their current context of higher education. Analysis of data from in-depth, open-ended interviews, a focus group interview, and a fictional writing sample illuminated the role of meaning-making capacity in determining the extent to which contextual influences shape self-perceptions of gender, race, and other emergent identities at their ...

Friends In The Orchid Room: An Inquiry Into Value-Creative Dialogue, Melissa R. Bradford

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

This study asked, what value is created by two education practitioner-scholars who engage in a years-long sustained dialogue about value-creating, or Soka, education inspired by Daisaku Ikeda’s ethos of value-creative dialogue? The purpose of this study was to analyze Ikeda’s philosophical perspectives and practice of value-creative dialogue and to use this analysis as a framework for analyzing the author’s own inner transformation and value creation through dialogue with her friend and interlocutor for the study. The study empirically evaluated the content of Ikeda’s dialogues as the theme of dialogue emerged and evolved over time in Ikeda ...

Intersecting Identities: The Lived Experiences Of Gay, Male Catholic College & University Alumni, Todd D. Kleine

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

This phenomenological study describes emergent themes related to how gay, male alumni perceive their experiences of attending an American Catholic institution of higher education. Utilizing a modified version of Seidman’s phenomenological interview protocol, six gay, male alumni of various American Catholic institution of higher education were interviewed in an attempt to arrive at the essence of attending a college or university where Church teachings and campus culture intersected with the sexual orientation of certain community members. From the collected data, four clear themes emerged: all alumni experienced pre-college negative messages about their sexual orientation, visibility and support were positive ...


An Examination Of Teachers’ Disciplinary Knowledge Of Early Literacy Instruction, Samantha Lazich Jun 2018

An Examination Of Teachers’ Disciplinary Knowledge Of Early Literacy Instruction, Samantha Lazich

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

Teacher knowledge in early literacy instruction has been questioned in the field for over 20 years. A theoretical framework outlined by Chall, coupled with the findings of the National Reading Panel, provides a strong foundation for the disciplinary knowledge required to teach children to read. The Basic Language Constructs Survey, a tool developed by Cantrell, Joshi, and Washburn, was designed to evaluate teachers’ knowledge, skills, and perceptions associated with the language and literacy concepts necessary for early literacy instruction. Developers of this instrument have reported findings of a study exploring the psychometric properties of the survey and investigations using the ...


Redesigning Curriculum, Reimagining Education: Preparing Preservice Teachers For Students Of Color In Urban Education, Sabrina D. Jones Jun 2018

Redesigning Curriculum, Reimagining Education: Preparing Preservice Teachers For Students Of Color In Urban Education, Sabrina D. Jones

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

Dropout rates, suspensions, and expulsions have increased—among urban schools for quite some time. Yet, the number of unmotivated and disengaged culturally diverse students in urban learning environments is steadily increasing. There is a growing number of white female novice teachers who are entering the field of urban education and many prospective/novice teachers overall that are feeling unprepared to reach culturally diverse urban youth. This dissertation by no means suggests that people of other races and cultures cannot teach culturally diverse students in urban learning environments, but it does suggest that those who enter the field of urban education ...

Teachers’ Sense Of Self-Efficacy And Its Impact On English Learner Students’ Reading Proficiency-Level Scores On A Large-Scale Language Proficiency Test: A Mixed-Method Design, Mirtha Quintana-Toomey

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

The research design applied in this study was a convergent parallel mixed-method approach that included qualitative and quantitative data collection. The quantitative data accrued through the Teacher’s Sense of Efficacy Survey (TSES) survey. The quantitative data also included a collection of English language learner’s reading-proficiency-level scores from a large-scale English-language proficiency test: Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to State for ELLs 2.0 (ACCESS for ELLs 2.0) administered in 2017. The quantitative data from the TSES survey and the ACCESS test were analyzed using the Pearson correlation coefficient. Findings from the TSES indicated that teachers had ...

“You Will Do Better Then I Did” The Positive Actions Black Parents Employ To Influence Their Child’S Choice To Attend College, Meagan Mitchell

College of Education Theses and Dissertations

This study employs an anti-deficit perspective in exploring how the parents of first generation, low-income African American students positively influence their child’s choice to attend college. This study examines the positive direct and indirect actions taken by African American parents with limited monetary resources to encourage their child to decide to attend college when they have not finished a four-year degree themselves.

I-Tree Landscape: A Case Study In Best Practices For Education And Dissemination For Multiple User Groups, Margaret M. Abood May 2018

I-Tree Landscape: A Case Study In Best Practices For Education And Dissemination For Multiple User Groups, Margaret M. Abood

DePaul Discoveries

The urban ecosystems we inhabit provide essential ecosystem services to humans, such as air pollution removal, as well as effective means to avoid costs related to urban development, such as stormwater treatment. A better understanding of the value of ecosystem services and their spatial distribution in urban areas is vital to widespread, wholistic understanding of the relationship of environmental, economic, and social conditions. As such, it should be a component of education in grades 6-12, college, and continuing education. i-Tree Landscape is a free, online model developed by the USDA Forest Service in which users can select a geography (i ...


University Internationalization As A Method Of Human Capital Development, Kari Costello May 2018

University Internationalization As A Method Of Human Capital Development, Kari Costello

College of Business Theses and Dissertations

University internationalization involves a complex set of initiatives that provide students and faculty with opportunities to gain global perspectives and intercultural skills which can enhance human capital. Typically, these activities are evaluated in terms of participation numbers or financial costs. But little attention is paid to understanding the intangible benefits of internationalization activities. This study aims to understand the benefits of international educational experiences and determine whether they can be considered investments from a human capital perspective. This mixed methods study involved qualitative interviews and a quantitative survey of over 400 students and faculty at a university. The results demonstrated ...
