Repeated Readings To Promote Fluency For Students With Intellectual Disabilities, Christina Armada

South Florida Education Research Conference

Reading fluency is a skill that’s difficult for many students to acquire. However, research suggests that consistently implementing the Repeated Reading intervention can help students increase fluency and comprehension. The effect of this strategy when used to promote reading fluency in secondary students with severe intellectual disabilities has yet to be investigated. My research will examine the effect of the Repeated Reading intervention on the fluency level of students with intellectual disabilities in a public high school.

The No Child Left Behind Era And Teacher Job Satisfaction, Amanda Malin Dec 2015

The No Child Left Behind Era And Teacher Job Satisfaction, Amanda Malin

Honors Projects and Posters

Media coverage and anecdotal evidence suggests that teacher job satisfaction has declined since the introduction of No Child Left Behind (NCLB). Does the data support this common narrative? By utilizing archival data, job satisfaction rates before and after the implementation of NCLB can be analyzed, and the legislation’s effects on elementary and secondary teachers can be compared to determine whether job satisfaction has actually decreased, and if this change has affected elementary or secondary teachers more.

Teaching English As A Second Language, Kristen Ahlers

Honors Projects and Posters

For my honors project, I prepared and taught lessons for adult language learners for the Level 1–2 English Class at Memorial Lutheran Church in Ames, IA.

I realized that developing effective teaching strategies was more important for the students I had than creating materials. As I continued to teach, a strategy I found effective was to prepare lessons with activities that could be ...
