An Investigative Study Of The Listening Skills Of Managers, Professional Technical And Clerical Employees At Central States Health & Life Co. Of Omaha, Kathryn Ann Gillaspie

Student Work

Effective listening is a skill that needs to be brought to the forefront in staff development programs and confronted by all levels of employees.

In The Classroom: The Winter Tradition Project (Feb. '91), Michael P. French, Kathy Everts Danielson

Teacher Education Faculty Publications

In an effort to involve all students and to educate them about the cultures of other countries, I developed a "winter tradition" project. The project required that students write brief descriptions of things their families do during the holidays or winter months. These were compiled into a class booklet. The winter tradition project proved to an excellent activity for middle school students because it allowed them to learn about each other while increasing their writing, computer, and interpersonal skills. I introduced this five-day project to five language arts classes of 20-25 students each.


Field Experience And Cooperative Education; Similarities And Differences, Joyce K. Fletcher Jan 1991

Field Experience And Cooperative Education; Similarities And Differences, Joyce K. Fletcher

Yet, we recognize that these outcomes are not guaranteed, and that in fact, not all students achieve all ...
