The Impact Affective Teaching Has On High School Physical Education Student's Life Skills, Shane Derose

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

Abstract

As high school students graduate and move on towards their careers and lives that lay ahead of them, they most likely will implement what they have learned from school into their regular every day scenarios. What impacts these students can positively affect their life style choices, especially when it comes to physical education. Specifically, the affective domain provides students with many relevant learning points that they can use for the remainder of their lives. As physical education instructors, while it is crucial to focus on psychomotor and cognitive aspects of the content that is delivered, utilizing the affective domain ...

Thematic Thinking And Multimodal Texts In Ela Classrooms: Structuring Curriculum Around Theme To Encourage Student Choice And Voice, Katia Nasra

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

This article outlines the benefits of structuring curriculum around thematic questions. Themes are created from universally recognized lessons of humanity. Offering students the chance to interact with content in a way that relates to their identity allows them to connect with their content in a more authentic way. This, in turn, creates space in the classroom for students to introduce their own texts and writing styles as a means enhancing their learning experience.

Combating Banned Books And Censorship In The English Classroom, Jenna Lee Caskinett Dec 2020

Combating Banned Books And Censorship In The English Classroom, Jenna Lee Caskinett

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

Censorship is a societal struggle that treads into all aspects of life and the classroom is no exception. Real-world, lesson teaching novels of all genres and types are being banned and challenged across the country, simply for containing (what is deemed to be) “inappropriate topics”—including sexuality, gender, violence, mental health, religion, and racism. Even if novels have been shown to be educational on the topics, they are still removed from the hands of youth in order to shield and protect them from the subject.

“Banned Books” have a wide array of effects on students in the classroom. Student learning ...


The Impact Of Athletic Performance On Academic Achievement Of Division I Student-Athletes, Dominick Zallo Dec 2020

The Impact Of Athletic Performance On Academic Achievement Of Division I Student-Athletes, Dominick Zallo

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

When considering Division I student-athletes, their athletic abilities are the first thing that comes to mind, when it comes to their academic responsibilities, things are often overlooked. Today the NCAA oversees a four billion dollar athletics industry in the United States made up of over 75,000 student-athletes participating in 36 different sports at the Division I level. Considering a small percentage of these student-athletes go on to compete at the professional level, the ultimate goal of attending college is to graduate and move onto a career rather than participate in athletics. With that being said, between the large time ...


Considering Contemporary: Finding Purpose For Canonical Works In The Modern Classroom, Logan Sheils Dec 2020

Considering Contemporary: Finding Purpose For Canonical Works In The Modern Classroom, Logan Sheils

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

There has been a longstanding debate on whether or not the canon should continue to deserve a place in the modern inclusive classroom. One side will argue that the canon contains meaningful lessons and content that influenced writings today, so it should still be thoughtfully taught, whereas other sides will argue that the canon is an overused crutch that teachers lean on instead of trying to find more modern, diverse texts. Considering both sides of the argument, there is a way to blend the canon and the contemporary in the modern day classroom without putting so much value on the ...

How Does Sports Retirement Affect Elite Athletes Well-Being?, Dominic Trento

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

Athletic retirement for an elite athlete can be one of the most significant if not scary moments of their life. The end of their athletic career begs major life decisions on where to go next and what will they do – who will they be if not an athlete? Therefore, the purpose of this synthesis project was to examine how athletic retirement affects elite athletes’ well-being. Data was collected using the EBSCOHOST search engine, found on SUNY- Brockport’s Drake Memorial Library online research website. A total of 10 critical mass articles were analyzed. From the critical mass the researcher identified ...


Teachers’ Beliefs, Perceptions, And Use Of Reproduction And Production Teaching Styles In Physical Education, Daniel Hinca Dec 2020

Teachers’ Beliefs, Perceptions, And Use Of Reproduction And Production Teaching Styles In Physical Education, Daniel Hinca

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

Historically, Physical Education (PE) teachers have utilized traditional teaching styles for PE instruction. There has been a growing emphasis over the past 20 years, however, for teachers to utilize a variety of teaching styles in PE in order to meet National and State standards along with goals and objectives of learning in the psychomotor, cognitive, and affective domains. This synthesis, then, reviewed literature regarding teachers’ perceptions and beliefs about, and intentions to utilize both reproduction (teacher-centered) and production (student-centered) teaching styles in PE. The three research questions used for this synthesis include: (a) what are teachers’ perceptions relative to the ...


Examining The Relationship Between Sleep And Athletic Performance, Ben Reinisch Dec 2020

Examining The Relationship Between Sleep And Athletic Performance, Ben Reinisch

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

Sleep has been regarded in recent years as an important factor in the improvement of athletic performance. The distinction, however, between what is necessary for a normative population and what is optimal for an elite athlete population relative to both quality and quantity of sleep is not clear. Therefore, this synthesis reviewed literature concerning how sleep can impact performance, the areas of performance it most impacts and the methods of improving sleep for athletes, in order to aid their performance. Data was collected primarily using the sport-centered SPORTDiscusdatabase through SUNY Brockport’s Drake Memorial Library database, EBSCO. Key words ...


The Short- And Long-Term Effects Of Sport-Related Concussions To Ice Hockey Players, Nicholas M. Lazor Dec 2020

The Short- And Long-Term Effects Of Sport-Related Concussions To Ice Hockey Players, Nicholas M. Lazor

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

Abstract

For many decades, sport-related concussions have impacted athletes with little concern and awareness given to their short- and long-term effects. Recent events, however, have brought much-needed attention to the need for increased investigation of the impacts and effects of sport-related concussions on a broad level. To this end, this synthesis reviewed literature regarding a cumulation of the known short- and long-term effects which sport-related concussions (SRC) have on ice hockey players. The data for this synthesis was collected using the EBSCOHOST search engine found on SUNY-Brockport’s Drake Memorial Library online search website. The 11 studies in the critical ...


The Impact Of Athletics On Fundraising At The Ncaa Division I Level, Gil Burgmaster Dec 2020

The Impact Of Athletics On Fundraising At The Ncaa Division I Level, Gil Burgmaster

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Synthesis Projects

As intercollegiate athletics have become increasingly important within the fabric of NCAA Division I institutions across the country, the importance of fundraising to offset athletic department budgets has come into focus. Analysis of previous research at the NCAA Division I level shows that although a winning athletics program does not definitively increase fundraising efforts, it can in many cases positively influence donor giving. It has been suggested that athletic directors are now being asked to become more creative and collaborative when it comes to financial responsibility and fundraising. NCAA D-I institutions are being advised to use high profile sporting events ...


Aces And Trauma-Informed Teaching In The English Classroom, Shannon L. Herr Dec 2020

Aces And Trauma-Informed Teaching In The English Classroom, Shannon L. Herr

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) plague our population. When people experience trauma through ACEs, they tend to cope through their trauma negatively. Many of these negative coping mechanisms tend to include risky behaviors which can lead to detrimental health issues in later adulthood. English teachers have the ability to educate students on ACEs by using Critical Literacy Pedagogy and Trauma-Informed Teaching. Students can analyze characters in novels and use ACEs as a lens to understand what the characters are experiencing. Teachers can help students make connections between informational articles and the text to help understand ACEs and healthy ways to cope ...


Creating Affirming Spaces For Lgbtq Youth: An Ela Based Approach, Kaitlyn Mary Evans Dec 2020

Creating Affirming Spaces For Lgbtq Youth: An Ela Based Approach, Kaitlyn Mary Evans

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

LGBTQ students throughout the country attend schools that are not affirming or safe spaces for them. Many LGBTQ students face harassment, bullying, and general mistreatment within their school communities. Peers, educators, and school personnel often cause detrimental emotional, psychological, and physical harm to LGBTQ students. Legislation surrounding LGBTQ rights - in schools and in general - is vague, exclusionary, or even non-existent. When LGBTQ students do not feel safe and secure in their school communities, the opportunity for learning and growth is minimal. Students need spaces where they feel respected, represented, and understood. Through the introduction of GSAs, a curriculum that shows ...


Examining The Use Of Technology And Non-Traditional Texts In The Contemporary Ela Classroom, Oona Jeanne Atwater Dec 2020

Examining The Use Of Technology And Non-Traditional Texts In The Contemporary Ela Classroom, Oona Jeanne Atwater

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

Abstract

In today’s educational climate, it is more prevalent than ever to take into consideration the texts and mediums that we include in our ELA curriculums and also how we utilize technology to transform student learning. The use of multimodal and non-traditional texts in classrooms has been widely controversial among ELA educators and legislators. The value of these texts, whether they be in the form of video or film, graphic narratives, podcasts, tweets, memes, infographics, etc., is being evaluated against the common core and state standards, and what skills students in the ELA classroom should be learning. This paper ...

Critical Literacy In Literature Instruction: Canonical Vs. Young Adult Literature, Julia Kesel Dec 2020

Critical Literacy In Literature Instruction: Canonical Vs. Young Adult Literature, Julia Kesel

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

Student populations are increasing in all forms of diversity: race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economics, gender, sexuality, ability, and more. They are becoming increasingly heterogenous. However, ELA literature curriculums remain largely homogenous. This is due to the fact that ELA classrooms typically teach from the traditional literary canon and text exemplars that contain mainly white, male, heterosexual, Christian, and physically- and mentally-abled authors and narratives. To counter the dominant narrative, educators can and should adapt a pedagogical approach to contemporary literature instruction that promotes critical literacy with paired canonical and young adult literature text sets and essential questions.


The Importance Of Student Choice, And Culturally Responsive Pedagogy, Fowzia F. Shaham Dec 2020

The Importance Of Student Choice, And Culturally Responsive Pedagogy, Fowzia F. Shaham

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

There are many problems that our education system has. The most complained about is lack of student choice and understanding who your students are on a different level. Educators tend to forget that our role is not just based on teaching kids’ information from a text, but we are exemplifying how an adult should interact with others. By getting to know our students, we are teaching them how to express themselves and communicate. And by giving our students choice, we are allowing them to feel as important as they truly are, and we are showing them that we respect and ...
