An Experimental Study Of The Effects Of Required Homework Review Versus Review On Request Upon Achievement, Dolores Dick Jul 1980

An Experimental Study Of The Effects Of Required Homework Review Versus Review On Request Upon Achievement, Dolores Dick

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

During the 1979-80 school year, two Algebra I classes were involved in a study to test the effects of two methods for reviewing homework problems on students' achievements and attitudes. One review procedure was to solve and explain each problem during the class period that followed the class period in which the homework assignment had been made. The other procedure involved solving and explaining only the problems that students requested to have reviewed. While one procedure was being used with one class, the other procedure was being used with the comparison class. One treatment procedure was used with a class ...


Traditional Islamic Education In Morocco: Sociohistorical And Psychological Perspectives, Daniel A. Wagner, Abdelhamid Lotfi Jun 1980

Traditional Islamic Education In Morocco: Sociohistorical And Psychological Perspectives, Daniel A. Wagner, Abdelhamid Lotfi

Journal Articles (Literacy.org)

As in many parts of the Muslim world, traditional Islamic schooling1 in Morocco predates a crucial historical role in the training of the nation's youth and continues to reach a higher percentage of school-age children than has the modern school system. Although such traditional Quranic schooling may have touched the lives of most Moroccans, its impact — relative to the modern school system — is not yet fully understood. Probably the most difficult aspect of analyzing the impact of Quranic schools, and there are a number of levels of analysis upon which such education may be observed and discussed. Any ...


Revolution By Evolution: The Needed Graduate Response To Undergraduate Social Work Education, Roger A. Lohmann Mar 1980

Revolution By Evolution: The Needed Graduate Response To Undergraduate Social Work Education, Roger A. Lohmann

Faculty Scholarship

This paper is an assessment of the state of the art of graduate social work curricula with particular reference to the lag of such curriculum in responding to the maturation of undergraduate social work education. Advanced standing programs, it is suggested, offer a purely administrative solution to the curriculum question posed by the new continuum of social work education. An ad hoc trial and error problem-solving strategy is called for, on the basis of four assumptions: the primary of the BSW curriculum; and the advanced, specialized and applied science character of graduate social work.

Learning From Animals: Models For Studying Physiology And Disease, W. Jean Dodds Jan 1980

Learning From Animals: Models For Studying Physiology And Disease, W. Jean Dodds

EDUCATION

Animals can serve as valuable educational tools for elementary and high school students. By teaching young people reverence for all forms of life at an early age, it is possible to instill in them a proper perspective concerning the welfare and humane stewardship of animals. Exemplary subjects include the various aspects of evolutionary and embryological development; normal physiological processes, the mechanisms and pathology of naturally occurring infectious, metabolic, genetic and neoplastic diseases and aging; and an appreciation of the inevitability of death. Such studies can serve as learning models for students because these processes parallel or closely resemble those of ...

A New Experiential Course In Engineering Management, Donald S. Remer Jan 1980

A New Experiential Course In Engineering Management, Donald S. Remer

All HMC Faculty Publications and Research

Institutions with undergraduate programs of the engineering management type often find their introductory courses to be popular electives for students in more traditional engineering disciplines, while in other cases specific courses from business management or industrial engineering departments are elected. Where none of these options are available or suitable, engineering schools are well advised to provide one or two key courses to provide at least an introduction to the management problems their graduates will face. At Brown University, according to Prof. Barrett Hazeltine, a series of two courses in engineering management serve this function; more than half of Brown's ...

Integration Challenges For The 1980s: Long Range Plans For School Facilities, Lois M. Quinn, Kenneth Robinson

ETI Publications

In 1980 the Milwaukee School Board considered a 1980-90 School Building and Sites Plan which recommends policies for school closings and construction projects for the 1980's. This report by Lois Quinn and Kenneth Robinson of the Metropolitan Integration Research Center discusses the proposals of the School Building and Sites Commission and provides analysis of the three factors which the Commission stated were most important in planning school closings: impact on desegregation, declining enrollments, and budgetary constraints.


Relationships Between School Desegregation And Government Housing Programs: A Milwaukee Case Study, Lois M. Quinn, Michael G. Barndt, Diane S. Pollard Jan 1980

Relationships Between School Desegregation And Government Housing Programs: A Milwaukee Case Study, Lois M. Quinn, Michael G. Barndt, Diane S. Pollard

ETI Publications

School desegregation was initiated in Milwaukee in the 1976-77 school year through a court-ordered city desegregation program and a state-financed city-suburban pupil transfer program. This pilot study by the Metropolitan Integration Research Center explored three dimensions of the complex interrelationships between these school desegregation programs and housing patterns in Milwaukee County. First, a field study explored the attitudes of minority families participating in the innovative city-suburban school desegregation program. The survey found high satisfaction with the educational program and relatively strong interest in possible integrating housing moves to suburban areas where children were busing to school. Secondly, the pupil movement ...

Integration Challenges For The 1980s: Affirmative Action Programs For The Milwaukee Public Schools Administration, Lois M. Quinn

ETI Publications

In March 1976 the Milwaukee Board of School Directors adopted an Affirmative Action Policy Statement for the school system. The statement lists goals designed to achieve a school staffing pattern which is reflective of the Milwaukee community. This report by the Metropolitan Integration Research Center examines the current employment profile of the central administration of the Milwaukee Public Schools to determine what progress has been made in changing minority staffing patterns among administrative staff. Within the MPS administration at central office there are 577 staff, reporting either to the Superintendent or the Secretary-Business Manager. An analysis of staffing patterns in ...

G80-510 Sagebrush Control, Robert G. Wilson, Patrick E. Reece Jan 1980

G80-510 Sagebrush Control, Robert G. Wilson, Patrick E. Reece

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Sagebrush is an all encompassing term commonly used to describe Artemisia species found on range and pasture lands in Nebraska. The dominant woody sagebrush species found in western Nebraska are sand sagebrush, fringed sagebrush, green sagewort, and big sagebrush. These species vary in appearance, distribution and control recommendations. All four species are perennials, have deep extensive root systems and flower in the latter part of the summer. The leaves of sagebrush have a strong odor as a result of camphor like compounds. Palatability and digestibility of sagebrush species found in Nebraska tend to be poor because of high volatile oil ...

G80-504 Proper Livestock Grazing Distribution On Rangeland (Revised February 1996), Jerry D. Volesky, Walter H. Schacht, Steven S. Waller

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Good grazing distribution can increase harvest efficiency and grazing capacity. This NebGuide discusses common grazing problems and offers solutions.

The 23 million acres of rangeland in Nebraska are mostly grassland and are primarily devoted to forage production for Nebraska's multibillion dollar beef cattle industry. Nebraska's rangelands are inherently productive, and potential returns from efficient management practices are high for livestock producers.

Proper grazing distribution is a factor which can increase livestock production from Nebraska's rangeland. Grazing distribution refers to dispersion of grazing animals over a management unit. It is just one element of good grazing management which ...


G80-513 Protect Soil With Vegetative Residues, C,R, Fenster Jan 1980

G80-513 Protect Soil With Vegetative Residues, C,R, Fenster

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Keeping a protective cover of vegetative residues on the soil surface is the simplest and surest way to control both water and wind erosion.

Crop residues are vital to conservation of soil and water. Keeping a protective cover of vegetative residues on the soil surface is the simplest and surest way to control both water and wind erosion. Vegetative residues on the soil surface improve infiltration of water into the soil, reduce evaporation, and aid in maintaining organic matter. Residues left upright all winter trap snow which increases soil water.


G80-500 Ecofarming: Selection Of Tractor Mounted Or Pull-Type Sprayers, Norman L. Klocke, G. A. Wicks, R. Fenster Jan 1980

G80-500 Ecofarming: Selection Of Tractor Mounted Or Pull-Type Sprayers, Norman L. Klocke, G. A. Wicks, R. Fenster

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Uniform application of dependable herbicides in the ecofarming program is a key to its success. A good sprayer is needed to accomplish this, and not every new sprayer available will do the job. The following sprayer components should be checked carefully: pump, tank, tank agitation, flow-control assembly, strainers and screens, distribution system (including boom), and nozzles. Each of the components is important if the sprayer is to do an accurate and uniform job of application.

G80-486 Crickets (Revised June 1987), David L. Keith, Shripat T. Kamble

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Crickets: identification, damage, and control.

Crickets belong to the order Orthoptera, most members of which have enlarged hind legs, adapted for jumping. In addition, members of this group possess opaque, leather-like forewings that cover a pair of clear, membranous hindwings. Most crickets are nocturnal, whereas their grasshopper cousins are active only during the daytime. Members of the cricket family usually have very long antennae and their wings have the front margin folded sharply over the side of the body, giving them a "boxlike" appearance. Female crickets are characterized by having long, spear-shaped ovipositers, used for egg-laying.

Crickets are sometimes confused ...
