It Works For Me: Shared Tips For Teaching, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Nov 2011

It Works For Me: Shared Tips For Teaching, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

Why bother to read yet another book about teaching? What can you possibly gain that will prepare you to meet those daily moments of truth? Perhaps this book's title suggests the answer. It Works for Me: Shared Tips for Teaching is not a treatise on pedagogical theory, nor is it designed to dictate a set of rules for success in the classroom. Its purpose is not to provide you with a complete program for better teaching. It Works for Me is simply a collection of practical tips drawn from the real-life experiences of some outstanding college teachers across the ...

Factors Influencing Assigned Student Achievement Levels, Sheldon Rothman Oct 1998

Factors Influencing Assigned Student Achievement Levels, Sheldon Rothman

Dr Sheldon Rothman

During 1997, teachers in South Australian government schools were asked to assign a level of achievement using the nationally developed curriculum profiles in English, Science, Studies of Society and Environment, and Technology. About one third of state schools participated. Data were collected on student achievement levels, student background factors (age, gender, school card status, aboriginality, special programs), school background factors (CAP, DSP), and teacher confidence in assigning achievement levels using profiles. This paper presents loglinear models to report on relationships between assigned levels and student background, school background, and teacher confidence; relationships among the strands in each learning area; and ...

Dissertation: The Effect Of Study Skills Training Intervention On United States Air Force Aeromedical Apprentices, John Griffith

John Griffith

The study examined the effects of a study skills training intervention course on U.S. Air Force Aeromedical Apprentices with five main purposes. The first was to examine the relationship between study skills training and the number of times students required academic interventions outside of normal class time. The second purpose was to examine the relationship between study skills training and end of course averages. The third was to determine the relationship between study skills training and the amount of additional instruction, measured in time, students required. The fourth purpose examined the relationship between study skills training and graduation rates ...

Characterization Of Canine Photoreceptor Phosducin Cdna And Identification Of A Sequence Variant In Dogs With Photoreceptor Dysplasia, Qi Zhang, Gregory M. Acland, Charles J. Parhsall, Jeanette Haskell, Kunal Ray, Gustavo D. Aguirre

Gustavo D. Aguirre, VMD, PhD

Photoreceptor dysplasia (pd) is an autosomal recessive disease of miniature schnauzer dogs causing retinal degeneration. The disease is a homologue of retinitis pigmentosa, a group of genetically heterogeneous diseases, causing blindness in humans. A subtraction library was prepared from retinas of pd affected and age-matched normal control dogs to isolate de novo candidate genes for further examination. From the subtraction library, cDNA for phosducin (PDC), a member of the phototransduction pathway, was isolated as a transcript expressed at a higher level in the affected retina. First, the normal canine PDC cDNA was characterized to evaluate the PDC gene in the ...

A Survey Of Graphics Calculator Use In Victorian Secondary Schools, Alla Routitsky, Patrick Tobin Jun 1998

A Survey Of Graphics Calculator Use In Victorian Secondary Schools, Alla Routitsky, Patrick Tobin

Dr Alla Routitsky

In 1997, Victoria became the first state to permit the use of graphics calculators in final external examinations. The action was seen as radical for both social and educational reasons. Concerns were raised about the propriety of using the calculators and whether their use would add to existing educational disparities. With the support of the Board of Studies, a survey of secondary schools was undertaken to gauge the response to this decision and inform further action on graphics calculator use in mathematical courses.

All superintendents and school board chairman in the state were surveyed on the following topics: their perceptions concerning school board members’ orientations toward their role as representatives (trustee vs. delegate), their personal attitudes concerning the electoral process, their assessment of interest group involvement in district decision-making ...

Taurine Status In Cats Is Not Maintained By Dietary Cysteinesulfinic Acid, S Edgar, Claudia Kirk, Q Rogers, J Morris Mar 1998

Taurine Status In Cats Is Not Maintained By Dietary Cysteinesulfinic Acid, S Edgar, Claudia Kirk, Q Rogers, J Morris

Claudia A Kirk

Endogenous synthesis of taurine by cats is limited. Putative precursors of taurine, cysteinesulfinic acid and cysteic acid, were fed to cats to determine whether they were utilized. Groups of five cats were depleted of taurine by a resin (Colestipol(R)) diet, then given 6 dietary treatments containing (g/kg diet): 0.0, 0.4, or 0.8 taurine; or 0.98 or 1.96 cysteinesulfinic acid, or 0.4 taurine + 1.0 cysteic acid for 12 wk. Plasma and whole blood taurine concentrations and body weights were measured weekly. Concentration of taurine in semitendinosus muscle was measured initially, after 2 ...
