Understanding And Implementing School-Family Interventions After Neuropsychological Impairment, Jane Close Conoley, Susan M. Sheridan Nov 2005

Understanding And Implementing School-Family Interventions After Neuropsychological Impairment, Jane Close Conoley, Susan M. Sheridan

Educational Psychology Papers and Publications

Children who have suffered traumatic brain injury (TBI) or have neurological impairments due to disease, toxins, or genetic makeup present challenges that are best addressed by coordinated treatment and support activities among all their caregivers. Such systematic approaches to treatment, rehabilitation, teaching, and parenting are both complex to describe and difficult to create and maintain. The goal of this chapter is to focus on one of the key systems that affects children’s learning and behavioral adjustments: the interface between schools and families. Other Handbook authors have described specialized consultation to teachers needed to support their efficacy with children. This ...

Consultation: Conjoint Behavioral, John W. Eagle, Susan M. Sheridan Nov 2005

Consultation: Conjoint Behavioral, John W. Eagle, Susan M. Sheridan

Educational Psychology Papers and Publications

Conjoint behavioral consultation (CBC) is defined as a "structured, indirect form of service delivery in which parents and teachers are joined together to ad-dress the academic, social, or behavioral needs of an individual" (Sheridan & Kratochwill, 1992, p. 122). CBC incorporates a data-based, behavioral approach to supporting children's needs in naturalistic settings within an ecological-systems theoretical framework. CBC is a process that is guided by a consultant (e.g., school psychologist, special educator, or other team member) who facilitates a problem-solving process through the use of technical and interpersonal skills (Christenson & Sheridan, 2001). The foci of CBC are remediating and ...

Multi-Party Mobilization For Adolescent Literacy In A Rural Area: A Case Study Of Policy Development And Collaboration, Edmund T. Hamann, Julie Meltzer Oct 2005

Multi-Party Mobilization For Adolescent Literacy In A Rural Area: A Case Study Of Policy Development And Collaboration, Edmund T. Hamann, Julie Meltzer

Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

Between 2001 and 2005, the state of Maine shifted the focus of its statewide high school improvement efforts to include an explicit focus on adolescent literacy. One trigger for that change in focus was a 5-school adolescent literacy initiative previously launched in a rural county under the federal Northeast and Islands Regional Educational Laboratory contract. This monograph describes the multi-party mobilization that led to the creation and implementation of the adolescent literacy project and explains the link between that modest rural effort and the change in state-level reform efforts. The project was designed and implemented at the intersection of what ...

Systemic High School Reform In Two States: The Serendipity Of State-Level Action, Edmund T. Hamann Oct 2005

Systemic High School Reform In Two States: The Serendipity Of State-Level Action, Edmund T. Hamann

Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

Maine and Vermont have been national leaders in state-level coordination of high school reform. Both recently developed almost interchangeable, new, voluntary, statewide frameworks that describe multiple ways high schools should change. Both frameworks— Promising Futures (Maine Commission on Secondary Education 1998) and High Schools on the Move (Vermont High School Task Force 2001)—were published in book form and include extensive bibliographies grounding their claims that they are research based. Both frameworks recommend principles and practices for improving high schools for all students. Both frameworks were drafted primarily by leading local educators with only modest support from experts based beyond ...

Comparison Of The Academic Achievement Of First-Year Female Honors Program And Non-Honors Program Engineering Students, Gayle Hartleroad Oct 2005

Comparison Of The Academic Achievement Of First-Year Female Honors Program And Non-Honors Program Engineering Students, Gayle Hartleroad

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

The purpose of this study was to compare the academic achievement of first-year female engineering students based on participation, or lack thereof, in the honors program. A single research question was developed for this study: “Is there a significant difference in academic achievement of first-year female engineering Honors Program students and non-honors program students?” The problem for this study was that many students in the Freshman Engineering program at Purdue University believed that participation in an honors program damaged students’ grade point averages with its challenging curriculum. This was especially true for beginning female students entering a traditionally male-dominated career ...


“What Is An Honors Student?”, Jay Freyman Oct 2005

“What Is An Honors Student?”, Jay Freyman

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

It is first necessary to recognize the distinction between the questions “What is an honors student?” or better “What are the characteristics of an honors student?” and “How do you recognize a student with those characteristics?” The first of these two questions is easier to approach since it is more a matter of prescription than of description, a presentation of an ideal rather than a recognition of an actual state. We can all list characteristics which we would like or expect those special students to have who are worthy in our estimation of the designation “honors.” These expectations, I submit ...

Honors: When Value-Added Is Really Added Value, Jacqueline Kelleher Oct 2005

Honors: When Value-Added Is Really Added Value, Jacqueline Kelleher

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Sometimes I look at the responsibilities and demands placed on me in my current position and cannot believe I haven’t cracked up yet. In this era of accountability and “show me the data,” institutional assessment directors like me are constantly bombarded with challenges that require quick, critical, divergent thinking, analytical reasoning, effective speaking, and, to some extent, creative writing. As both a professor and administrator at a state university, I live and breathe producing evidence that we as an institution are having an impact on student learning. When I was growing up, I never imagined I would end up ...


A Student Like Me, Bonnie D. Irwin Oct 2005

A Student Like Me, Bonnie D. Irwin

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Jay Freyman suggests that we often define “honors” (and, I suspect, many other things) based on our own experiences and observations as undergraduates. He then provides us with a valuable means of uncovering those diamonds in the rough and shading our eyes from those sparkling cubic zirconia who may have the resumés but lack the drive to take full advantage of the honors experience. This selection process has become even more complicated by the intrusion of parents who act as brokers for their students and who, despite our best efforts to thwart them, sometimes overshadow the stellar qualifications of their ...


What Honors Students Want (And Expect): The Views Of Top Michigan High School And College Students, James P. Hill Oct 2005

What Honors Students Want (And Expect): The Views Of Top Michigan High School And College Students, James P. Hill

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Often missing in an overall assessment of honors is a broad, comparative analysis of what top academic students want and expect from college and more particularly from an honors experience. Limited case studies or theoretical research articles analyzing how honors students think or perform may overlook or undervalue this important voice in the honors discourse. This article, although in some respects also just a larger-scale case study, has a broader perspective than many similar studies of honors students. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the expectations of prospective and current college honors students. This study also compares the ...


Redemptive Memory: The Christianization Of The Holocaust In America, Laura Bender Herron Oct 2005

Redemptive Memory: The Christianization Of The Holocaust In America, Laura Bender Herron

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

There has been a considerable debate among historians concerning the role of the Holocaust in the American collective memory. Since the watershed year 1993, when the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum opened its doors on the Mall in Washington, DC, and the film Schindler’s List debuted, the level of awareness of the Holocaust in the public mind has been at an all-time high in the United States. The question at the heart of this academic discussion is how Americans have come to identify so strongly with an experience that occurred over sixty years ago, on foreign shores, to a ...


Honors As An Adjective: Response To Jay Freyman, Len Zane Oct 2005

Honors As An Adjective: Response To Jay Freyman, Len Zane

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

As an ex-honors program/college CEO, the question raised by this Forum— ”What is an Honors (fill in the blank)?”—got me reminiscing about the old days. In some sense the best answers are the obviously circular answers. An honors student is a student participating in an honors program. An honors curriculum is the curriculum required to graduate with honors and is made up, obviously, of honors courses. The people teaching those courses are by necessity honors faculty. But how can an honors course be identified? Well, it is one populated by honors students that meets some curricular requirement of ...


Characteristics Of The Contemporary Honors College* A Descriptive Analysis Of A Survey Of Nchc Member Colleges, Peter Sederberg Oct 2005

Characteristics Of The Contemporary Honors College* A Descriptive Analysis Of A Survey Of Nchc Member Colleges, Peter Sederberg

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Every year the number of honors colleges across the country increases. Most of these new colleges emerge out of pre-existing honors programs, an origin that suggests that the change reflects an interest in raising the public profile of honors education at a particular institution. Sometimes this transformation entails only a cosmetic name change; other times, institutions take the opportunity to review what they are providing in honors education and how they might enhance it.

The Executive Committee of the National Collegiate Honors Council recognized that the NCHC ought to take a strong interest in this phenomenon. If an institution is ...


Teaching Honors, Sam Schuman Oct 2005

Teaching Honors, Sam Schuman

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Jay Freyman’s discussion of “What is an Honors Student?” sent me off on the somewhat quirky tangent of asking, “So What is an Honors Teacher?” Even quirkier, my musings led me to the conclusion that the best answer was provided by John Lennon and the Beatles: “all you need is love.”


Book Review How To Write A Ba Thesis: A Practical Guide From Your First Ideas To Your Finished Paper (Chicago Guides To Writing, Editing, And Publishing) By Charles Lipson, Hallie Savage Oct 2005

Book Review How To Write A Ba Thesis: A Practical Guide From Your First Ideas To Your Finished Paper (Chicago Guides To Writing, Editing, And Publishing) By Charles Lipson, Hallie Savage

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

A hallmark of honors education is high-quality undergraduate research. For honors faculty and administrators, curricular planning that results in excellent thesis research can be a special challenge because honors students represent a wide range of disciplines and vary in competency and preparation for research. How to Write a BA Thesis meets this challenge. It is a well-developed, practical guidebook for accomplishment of honors and/or undergraduate research. The contents are built on a developmental continuum or time table beginning with the conceptual basis for a thesis. As such, it is applicable to one-semester projects as well as theses or other ...


Is, Ought, And Honors, Daniel Pinti Oct 2005

Is, Ought, And Honors, Daniel Pinti

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

Somewhat uncomfortably, I confess that the question “What is Honors?” rings a bit too Platonic to these ears. I hardly feel qualified to describe “Honors” in terms of its timeless, disembodied, ideal Form, although I suppose the shadows on the wall of my own humble cave are recognizable enough. Honors at Niagara University has as its primary purpose to enrich the academic experience of NU’s most talented students, and we try to do so by weaving coursework and individual research opportunities into each student’s curriculum in order to enhance both the general education and the major programs. We ...


In Praise Of Silence, Bebe Nickolai Oct 2005

In Praise Of Silence, Bebe Nickolai

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

I thought I was ready for her, a sophomore in my honors rhetoric class. I have been teaching the honors rhetoric class for almost twenty years. Yet every semester I revise my syllabus for the class as I realize that honors students can handle even bigger challenges—more difficult readings, more demanding writing assignments.


What Is Honors?, Dail W. Mullins Jr. Oct 2005

What Is Honors?, Dail W. Mullins Jr.

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

For several years I have edited a small, in-house journal for the School of Education’s Technology Advisory Committee at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), a journal which is distributed to the faculty and posted on the School of Education’s website. Until last issue. The last issue I submitted—while dutifully made available to the faculty and staff—never made it onto the website. No one offered an explanation, and I never inquired about the matter—after all, I was still able to add the activity to my already portly and now largely useless post-retirement vita—but ...

A Way Of Life, Sriram Khe

Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council --Online Archive

The question “What is Honors?” could not have been posed at a better time for me: earlier this summer, I took up a new responsibility of directing the Western Oregon University (WOU) Honors Program while only in my fourth year at the university. Work has commenced at WOU to prepare for the accreditation process, which is also a wonderful opportunity to think about questions such as “What is Honors?”
