A Comparison Of Aesthetic And Efferent Reading Strategies Of College Students, Julie Schnell

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

This study was designed to investigate, compare, and document the use of efferent and aesthetic reading strategies, as used by both undergraduate and graduate college students enrolled in a course in developmental reading instruction.

Twenty students were individually interviewed, each student attending two separate interviews: one which focused on efferent reading and the other which focused on aesthetic reading. The students' responses to the question, "What is efferent/aesthetic reading comprehension?"; their comments made as they “thought-out-loud” while reading; and their identifications of efferent and aesthetic reading comprehension strategies, were analyzed and categorized according to similarities in items included in ...

Making Games And Equipment For Young Children, Claudia Eliason

All Archived Publications

Many opportunities for enjoyment, learning, and interaction can be provided through the child's use of homemade games and equipment. Children love games and parents usually like to provide as many as they can. However, not only does the family budget often limit the quantity and quality of pieces of equipment that can be purchased, but in addition many store toys are limited in terms of their learning potential for children and parents. It is the intent of this booklet to suggest games that can be made from easily accessible and inexpensive materials.

Consolidating Perceptions Of Middle School Teaching Through Participatory-Type Early Field Experiences, Bobby D. Moore, Rex Leonard

Faculty Publications

It is entirely possible that prospective teachers whose early school exposures are limited to the short student teaching endeavor will have an inaccurate or distorted perception of the problems and frustrations they will actually encounter when they being their initial teaching assignment. This study was designed to determine the impact that extensive early field experiences had on the ranking of the middle school teacher characteristics at specific stages of maturation during the teacher preparation program. Of the 10 teacher characteristics ranked, half showed significant changes in priorities across the three assessments of the opinionnaire. Evidence from this study seems to ...


Measuring The Value Of Experiential Learning, Chekitan S. Dev Aug 1990

Measuring The Value Of Experiential Learning, Chekitan S. Dev

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] The lecture method of instruction frequently fails to capture the dynamics of the learning experience, particularly for such topics as marketing. The case method, while a substantial learning innovation, does not quite capture the richness of a business situation. For marketing and many other topics like it, the experiential approach seems to be effective.

In a recently revised marketing course, “Marketing Communication Media”, I asked my students to apply marketing-communication tools to a real business situation. I expected that this experiential approach would benefit three groups: namely, the students, the businesses participating in the exercise, and Cornell University. In ...


The Effects Of Audiotape Self-Monitoring On Direct Instruction Teacher Presentation Techniques, Kay D. Simon Brynildson Aug 1990

The Effects Of Audiotape Self-Monitoring On Direct Instruction Teacher Presentation Techniques, Kay D. Simon Brynildson

Master's Theses

Prior research has shown that several Direct Instruction teacher presentation techniques are functionally related to student academic achievement. Unfortunately, variability exists in the implementation of Direct Instruction programs with regard to these critical teaching skills. Monitoring of Direct Instruction teachers appears necessary to ensure program effectiveness. The present study employed a multiple baseline across subjects experimental design to evaluate the effectiveness of audiotape self-monitoring in improving and maintaining five Direct Instruction teacher presentation techniques: clear signalling, pacing, corrections, contingent reinforcement and student accuracy. The subjects were two middle school special education teachers who taught Direct Instruction corrective reading programs. Both ...

Decentralization And Policy Design, University Of Pennsylvania May 1990

Decentralization And Policy Design, University Of Pennsylvania

CPRE Policy Briefs

This brief focuses on design issues surrounding policies aimed at decentralization, drawing from three CPRE reports - Working Models of Choice in Public Education, Richard Elmore; Diversity Amidst Standardization: State differential Treatment of Districts, Susan Fuhrman; and School District Restructuring in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Martin Carnoy and Jean McDonnell.

Across the nation, states and school districts are exploring different ways to give schools more autonomy. Proponents of decentralization point to research finds that link school effectiveness to school-level discretion and examples of corporate restructuring where decentralized and simplified administration has increased efficiency. The decentralization movement has also gained momentum from ...

Diagnostic Theory Of Information As A Testing Technique To Ascertain The Different Levels Of Spanish Vocabulary Skills, Eliza Bennette-Kinkead May 1990

Diagnostic Theory Of Information As A Testing Technique To Ascertain The Different Levels Of Spanish Vocabulary Skills, Eliza Bennette-Kinkead

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of information theory as a testing technique to diagnose the different levels of Spanish vocabulary skills. This study is not an attempt to analyze mistakes or to debate which language proficiency test is the best in testing language abilities or expertness. This test was constructed to determine the readability and the validity of information theory as a testing tool. A secondary purpose was to determine whether this technique could help increase a person's ability to comprehend reading material at their level of second language learning.
