Does High-Quality Preschool Benefit Children? What The Research Shows, Hani Morgan Jan 2019

Does High-Quality Preschool Benefit Children? What The Research Shows, Hani Morgan

Faculty Publications

Despite research showing that high-quality early education can be extremely beneficial, a large percentage of American children do not attend preschool. In addition, children from low-income families are less likely to enroll in preschool and more likely to attend low-quality early education programs. One reason for this outcome involves low spending on early education. In comparison with many industrialized nations, the United States spends little on preschool education, allowing other countries to be ahead in this area. This paper summarizes the findings of research on preschool education. It also offers a few ideas on improving early education programs and reasons ...

A Comparison Of Sampling Approaches For Monitoring Schoolwide Inclusion Program Fidelity, Hank S. Bohanon, Meng-Jia Wu Jan 2019

A Comparison Of Sampling Approaches For Monitoring Schoolwide Inclusion Program Fidelity, Hank S. Bohanon, Meng-Jia Wu

School of Education: Faculty Publications and Other Works

Including students with disabilities requires schoolwide interventions that are implemented with fidelity (adherence). Collection of fidelity data may become problematic when multiple evidence-based treatments exist in one setting. To address concerns around efficiency of data collection, this study hypothesized that the three sampling approaches (proportional, consensus, stratified random) provided similar levels of agreement with an expert rater, thus warranting the differentiation in their applications based on the needs of the evaluators. Three high schools were randomly assigned to one of three sampling approaches (i.e., proportional, consensus, stratified random) to complete a fidelity measure for the implementation of a schoolwide ...

Newborn And Infant Hearing Screening Facing Globally Growing Numbers Of People Suffering From Disabling Hearing Loss, Katrin Neumann, Shelly Chadha, George Tavartkiladze, Xingkuan Bu, Karl R. White

Psychology Faculty Publications

Recent prevalence estimates indicate that in 2015 almost half a billion people—about 6.8% of the world’s population—had disabling hearing loss and that prevalence numbers will further increase. The World Health Organization (WHO) currently estimates that at least 34 million children under the age of 15 have disabling hearing loss. Based on a 2012 WHO report, approximately 7.5 million of these children were under the age of 5 years. This review article focuses on the importance of high-quality newborn and infant hearing screening (NIHS) programs as one strategy to ameliorate disabling hearing loss as a global ...


Lessons In Productivity: What I Learned By Writing For 30 Minutes A Day, Mary Stenson Jan 2019

Lessons In Productivity: What I Learned By Writing For 30 Minutes A Day, Mary Stenson

Forum Lectures

Too often our scholarly and creative work takes a back seat to components of our jobs with built in accountability like teaching and service. During the fall 2018 semester, I participated in the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity's Faculty Success Program. The program emphasizes scholarly productivity and encourages work-life balance. The core component of the program is developing a daily writing practice. The program encourages participants to write for 30 minutes per day. NCFDD founder, Kerry Ann Rockquemore defines writing as "anything between the spark of an idea and a manuscript out the door."

Organizational Learning In Libraries At For-Profit Colleges And Universities, Julie Evener Jan 2019

Organizational Learning In Libraries At For-Profit Colleges And Universities, Julie Evener

Other Topics

There is a gap in knowledge about organizational learning in the libraries of for-profit colleges and universities (FPCUs) in the United States. Though for-profit institutions are educating an increasing number of American students, few research studies have focused on the libraries in FPCUs. Academic libraries contribute to student engagement, student learning, and retention; therefore, the effects of improved library services for students at FPCUs may be positive and long lasting.

Examining The New Phenomenon Of Teachers As Brand Ambassadors, Christopher M. Saldana, Kevin G. Welner, Susan Malcolm, Eleanore Tisch Jan 2019

Examining The New Phenomenon Of Teachers As Brand Ambassadors, Christopher M. Saldana, Kevin G. Welner, Susan Malcolm, Eleanore Tisch

National Education Policy Center

A brand ambassador receives some form of compensation or perk in exchange for the endorsement of a product. This research brief explores the ethical, legal, and policy issues associated with the hiring of teachers as brand ambassadors, a new and disturbing foray into corporate marketing within schools. It examines the potential benefits that these corporate-teacher relationships provide to teachers and their students, and weighs these against the potential concerns, conflicts, and costs. It considers the need for protections of students’ interests as teacher brand ambassadorships grow as a presence in public schools, and provides recommendations for future policy-making.
