"I Cannot Teach Because I Am Not Smart": Working Class Mothers’ Support For Their Children's Education In Japan, Yoko Yamamoto Oct 2013

"I Cannot Teach Because I Am Not Smart": Working Class Mothers’ Support For Their Children's Education In Japan, Yoko Yamamoto

2013 New England Association for Asian Studies Conference

Social class is a powerful element which predicts mothers’ support for their children’s academic development in Japan. Middle class mothers tend to hold higher educational expectations, invest in their children’s educational opportunities, and interact with the teachers more frequently than working class mothers (Stevenson & Stigler, 1992; Yamamoto, 2006). While ample evidence shows social class differences in parents’ academic support, few have examined why working class mothers are not as involved in their children’s education as middle class mothers. In order to understand the mechanisms of social class reproduction and mobility, it is critical to investigate the experiences and elements ...

Impact Of Popular Media On Black Identity And Progress, Anton Reece Jun 2013

Impact Of Popular Media On Black Identity And Progress, Anton Reece

Black Issues Conference

February is celebrated nationally as Black History Month. Unfortunately I submit to you that celebration has diminished significantly over the years. The African American community faces an ongoing challenge of preserving identity and culture while at the same time seeking full integration into mass media. The continued influence and explosion of Hip hop in main stream media has added to the debate. What has happened to our traditions? Who controls our image? Who are we? what is needed versus what sells? Or perhaps the question of the hour is who are we now? Are we progressing or regressing? This lively ...


Learning & Practice Sessions: Contributing To A Strong Academic Foundation For Undergraduate Csd Students, Erin E. Robling, Susan Ginley, Rik Lemoncello May 2013

Learning & Practice Sessions: Contributing To A Strong Academic Foundation For Undergraduate Csd Students, Erin E. Robling, Susan Ginley, Rik Lemoncello

Student Research Symposium

While the scope of practice for speech-language pathologists has expanded dramatically, graduate clinical training remains a two year master’s degree. A solid foundation in undergraduate communication sciences and disorders (CSD) coursework is ever-more essential to prepare students for the breadth of knowledge and skills obtained in graduate school. How are undergraduate/post-baccalaureate CSD programs evolving to meet this challenge? This study proposes one such enhancement. Learning & Practice Sessions are a program by which peer undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students lead weekly, post-class review sessions during which participating students have an opportunity to review the week’s material, discuss challenging concepts ...

Preliminary Results Of Using A Student Success Facilitator In An Accelerated Baccalaureate Nursing Program, Jennifer Bellsey, Cheryl Perna, Tish Smyer, Carolyn B. Yucha, Antonio Gutierrez,

Interdisciplinary Research Scholarship Day

Competing demands of work, family, friends, and the academic rigor while in an accelerated baccalaureate nursing program often lead to high levels of anxiety and may contribute to unsuccessful student progression. This phenomena is not unique to the UNLV School of Nursing but is an issue that nursing programs grapple with nationwide. While there is nursing research literature related to student success programs there are limited studies that describe the use of a Student Success Facilitator (SSF) coupled with a Student to Student Mentoring Program (SSMP).

Session F-3: Using The Question Formulation Technique In Your Classroom, Susan Bisinger, Lucinda Dittmer Mar 2013

Session F-3: Using The Question Formulation Technique In Your Classroom, Susan Bisinger, Lucinda Dittmer

Professional Learning Day

The skill of question formulation can lead to improved learning outcomes, greater student engagement, and more ownership of the learning process. This session presents the Question Formulation Technique (QFT) and guides teachers through strategies for integrating it into their classroom practice. Using the QFT helps students think more critically and independently by asking and evaluating their own questions - whether elementary level, secondary, or beyond. Participants are encouraged to attend the session with an upcoming project or activity in mind. You'll leave with a plan of action!
