In Search Of Aesthetic Space: Delaying Intentionality In Teaching/Learning Situations, Margaret A. Macintyre Latta Dec 2000

In Search Of Aesthetic Space: Delaying Intentionality In Teaching/Learning Situations, Margaret A. Macintyre Latta

Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

Aesthetic considerations are qualitative, personal, and value laden and do not fi t well into existing educational frameworks. Yet, I think greater aesthetic awareness is a pragmatic and philosophical necessity missing in much schooling. An aesthetic context calls for a rethinking and revaluing of what is educationally important. Th is paper explores such possibilities along with the concrete implications of taking aesthetic considerations seriously, within a school setting. Opened in September, 1997, the Creative Arts Centre, Milton Williams School, Calgary Board of Education, Calgary, Alberta, Canada, has chosen to value the creating process, primary to the arts, within the school ...

Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

Occasional Paper No. 72

The present report originated in a MSU policy analysis class taught during 1996. The professor and students agreed to construct a class that represented a grounded experience in policy analysis touching upon a current and relevant issue. We began exploring the policies surrounding the education of migrant children in Michigan.

Our goal was to learn about the policies related to the of education of migrant workers’ children and to develop an understanding of the issue’s complexities. We knew our work would be limited by time, financial, and political constraints. These constraints limited our work to ...


Using The Mystery Motivator To Improve Child Bedtime Compliance, Kristin E. Robison, Susan M. Sheridan Nov 2000

Using The Mystery Motivator To Improve Child Bedtime Compliance, Kristin E. Robison, Susan M. Sheridan

Educational Psychology Papers and Publications

Child bedtime problems are commonly reported by parents. A number of behavioral techniques, including extinction of tantrum behaviors, reinforcement of compliant bedtime, and implementation of consistent bedtime routines have been successful in improving bedtime compliance. The present study examined the effects of the "Mystery Motivator" (MM), a behavioral contract designed to remediate bedtime problems by delivering random reinforcement. Emphasis was placed on the optimal use of clinical intervention by enlisting parents as primary change agents in the home setting. Three adults and their four children, aged 3-5 years, participated. Three of the four children showed substantial changes in both time ...

Teaching Science To English-As-Second-Language Learners: Teaching, Learning, And Assessment Strategies For Elementary Esl Students, Gayle A. Buck Nov 2000

Teaching Science To English-As-Second-Language Learners: Teaching, Learning, And Assessment Strategies For Elementary Esl Students, Gayle A. Buck

Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

The number of reported LEP students enrolled in public and nonpublic schools has been increasing since 1986. In 1997, 22 State Education Agencies (SEA) in the United States reported the percent age of LEP students increased more than 10 per cent, and nine SEAs reported increases of 25 percent or greater (Macias, 1998). Overall, the number of students who speak languages other than English at home increased by more than 68 percent in the past 10 years (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages, 1997). This article relates to the National Science Education Standards’ Teaching Standard B: Teachers of ...

Mammalogy Papers: University of Nebraska State Museum

On 11 June 2000, Dr. Elmer C. Birney unexpectedly passed away from cardiac arrest suffered while outside caring for his cattle at his home in Blaine, Minnesota. One of his former students, Robert Timm, probably best expressed the immediate reaction of his family and many friends: ‘‘He was too young and in too good of health to be gone so soon.’’ At the time of his death, Elmer was Professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, the Curator of Mammals at the Bell Museum of Natural History, and Director of Graduate Studies of the program in Ecology, Evolution ...

A Physicist In Honors, Len Zane Oct 2000

A Physicist In Honors, Len Zane

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

I have been asked to provide a retrospective connecting my recent decision to resign as dean of the Honors College at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) with my involvement in NCHC as a proponent for the inclusion of more and better mathematics and science in honors education. My career in honors began in 1985 when I was appointed the first director of UNL V's Honors Program and formally ended this past summer with my return to the Physics Department at UNL V. During the period between the Pittsburgh conference in 1995 and the San Francisco conference in ...

The Curiosity Shop (Or, How I Stopped Worrying About Delta Shapes And Started Teaching), Susan Tomlinson

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

There is a program on the Food Network called "Cooking Live." I happen to be a regular watcher of this very informative show, which is hosted by a personable and knowledgeable chef named Sara Moulton. What sets this particular cooking show apart from the others is that it is less about entertainment than it is about actually teaching the viewer how to make proper pancakes, or how to chop an onion, or how long chicken can marinate safely at room temperature. (I think I remember Sara saying one half-hour, tops, though the FDA says never.) It is a wonderful mix ...


Creative Approaches To Teaching Science In An Honors Setting, Ursula Shepherd Oct 2000

Creative Approaches To Teaching Science In An Honors Setting, Ursula Shepherd

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

There are many reasons to teach science literacy in a University Honors Program. As our program director, Dr. Rosalie Otero, stated when asked why she has made such a strong commitment to incorporating the teaching of science into our program at the University of New Mexico:

It is difficult to envision how one will be able to live effectively in the twenty-first century without having achieved scientific literacy. While every educated person will certainly not be a scientist, every educated person must possess sufficient knowledge of the scientific method and of fundamental concepts of the natural sciences to make informed ...

A Biochemist In Honors, Dail Mullins

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

In 1984-quite unlike the depressed protagonist of George Orwell's novel-I found myself happily ensconced as a senior research associate in the department of biochemistry and molecular genetics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). I had received my Ph.D. in biochemistry from the same institution nine years earlier; had left for two years to do a post-doctoral fellowship in the field of cancer biology at Georgetown University and the National Institutes of Health; but had returned to U AB at the invitation of my doctoral mentor, Jim Lacey, to work on a project grant he had been ...


An Nsf -Funded Opportunity For Pre-Service Science Teachers, Lillian Mayberry, Jack Bristol Oct 2000

An Nsf -Funded Opportunity For Pre-Service Science Teachers, Lillian Mayberry, Jack Bristol

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

During the fall semester of 1995, a unique partnership opportunity was presented to the Colleges of Science and Education at the University of Texas at EI Paso (UTEP). A National Science Foundation Request for Proposals was received from the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE). It required Colleges of Arts and Sciences and Education to form collaboratives involving the improvement in the preparation of K -12 science and mathematics teachers: A Collaborative for Excellence in Teacher Preparation (CETP). Although unknown at the time, this would result in Honors education opportunities for students seeking teacher certification.


Grant Support From The National Science Foundation To Improve Undergraduate Education For All Students In Science And Mathematics, Engineering And Technology, Herbert Levitan Oct 2000

Grant Support From The National Science Foundation To Improve Undergraduate Education For All Students In Science And Mathematics, Engineering And Technology, Herbert Levitan

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

The articles in this special issue of the Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council focus on honors courses and programs that include science, mathematics and/or technology education in an innovative way. My objective is to describe a program offered by the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Division of Undergraduate Education that supports the development of such courses and programs. In addition, I will indicate several reasons why faculty associated with honors programs may be particularly well positioned to submit competitive proposals to this program, as well as particular challenges that proposals from honors programs may face.

A Humanist In Honors: Another Look At Catherine Cater, Paul Homan

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

In 2000 Catherine Cater marks her 55th year of teaching, a career which began in 1945 upon completion of her Ph.D. in English at the University of Michigan. Since 1962 she has taught at North Dakota State University, and although she officially retired from the faculty in 1982, she has continued to teach philosophy, direct humanities tutorials, and advise students on a volunteer basis. When the faculty at NDSU recognized her with the university's most prestigious teaching award, they made note of her role as the embodiment of the teacher-scholar "who has kept alive the tradition of liberal ...

School Consultation, Susan M. Sheridan, Jaqui R. Richards, Tracine Y. Smoot Sep 2000

School Consultation, Susan M. Sheridan, Jaqui R. Richards, Tracine Y. Smoot

Educational Psychology Papers and Publications

Consultation services in schools and related settings have received increased support over recent years because of their documented effi ciency and effi cacy. Psychologists working in schools are recognizing the desirability of such services to address the needs of an increasingly complex population of students. Consultation is defi ned as an indirect problem-solving and decision- making model that involves the cooperative eff orts of a consultant (specialist) and consultees (teachers, parents, caregivers) to clarify primary needs and issues and to develop, implement, and evaluate appropriate strategies for intervention.


The Science And Theory Of Empirically Supported Treatments: A Response To Hughes, Susan M. Sheridan Sep 2000

The Science And Theory Of Empirically Supported Treatments: A Response To Hughes, Susan M. Sheridan

Educational Psychology Papers and Publications

School psychologists work in dynamic contexts, and the conceptual and empirical bases that shape and inform the field are broad and diverse. As a profession, school psychology is concerned with providing services to a broad constituency base, with children and youth at the center. Because the work of school psychologists concerns helping children, there is a huge professional and ethical responsibility to ensure that what we do or the treatments we recommend have the greatest potential to result in the greatest amount of good. It is therefore important to understand the extant intervention literature base including its conceptual underpinnings, data-based ...

Alcohol Expectancies Among Adolescents In Inner Mongolia, Ian Newman, Ming Qu, Duane F. Shell, Yuching Li, Fangfang Gao Sep 2000

Alcohol Expectancies Among Adolescents In Inner Mongolia, Ian Newman, Ming Qu, Duane F. Shell, Yuching Li, Fangfang Gao

Educational Psychology Papers and Publications

Female students were more likely to report global negative expectancies, while male students were more likely to report stronger positive social perception expectancies. The 11th and 12th graders expected more negative effects from drinking including global negative effects and negative personal effects than did the 10th graders. Nondrinkers and occasional drinkers reported greater expectancies of negative personal effects and negative perceptions of drinking than regular-drinkers. In contrast, regular drinkers more often reported expectancies of positive social perception, tension reduction and pleasure. social courtesy, social facilitation. and beneficial drinking. The results suggest that alcohol expectancies among Chinese adolescents in Inner Mongolia ...

A Comparative Analysis Of Teachers', Caucasian Parents', And Hispanic Parents' Views Of Problematic School Survival Behaviors, Lisa Aaroe, J. Ron Nelson Aug 2000

A Comparative Analysis Of Teachers', Caucasian Parents', And Hispanic Parents' Views Of Problematic School Survival Behaviors, Lisa Aaroe, J. Ron Nelson

Special Education and Communication Disorders Faculty Publications

Scholars have asserted that the misclassification of culturally diverse students in programs for students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) may be attributable, at least in part, to the mismatch between the behavioral expectations present in the students' home environments and those prevalent within schools. A preliminary study was conducted to explore whether Caucasian and Hispanic parents' views of negative classroom and interpersonal school survival behaviors were consistent with one another and with those of general and special education teachers. Overall, the results suggest that parents (Caucasian and Hispanic) generally hold similar views regarding the extent to which it was ...
