Dalai Lama (Spiritual Leader)

The world of public education is much different now than when I was a student not so long ago. In only ten years, the world has opened up and changed in a way that no one imagined, thanks to cell phones and social media. Students can now walk through the halls of school with a device in their pocket that allows them to ...

Retention Of Female Faculty Members, Susan L. Murray, Mariesa Crow, Suzanna M. Rose Oct 2018

Retention Of Female Faculty Members, Susan L. Murray, Mariesa Crow, Suzanna M. Rose

Suzanna Rose

The recruitment and the retention of female undergraduate and graduate students into engineering courses is discussed. A similar challenge lies in recruiting female faculty member from the limited pool of candidates in several fields at most universities. It is found that about half the females who were hired did not stay at the university. It is suggested that programs should be introduced to encourage mentoring and career development as such improvements would benefit all faculty members both female and male.

Leading Through Collaboration: Designing Successful Il Curriculum Development Programs, Carrie Forbes, Amy Harris-Houk, Meg Meiman, Page Brannon

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Because faculty members in the disciplines are the primary developers of course- and department-level curricula, it is essential for librarians to initiate and sustain partnerships with them, in order to lead efforts at integration of information literacy into all levels of the undergraduate and graduate curriculum. Offering instructional development grants, stipends, or other incentives to faculty to partner with a librarian to develop IL curricular innovations is one important method for deepening faculty-librarian collaborations. Collaborative, incentivized information literacy grant programming can catalyze this integration by fostering mutually-beneficial, enthusiastic partnerships between librarians and faculty; by ensuring the library has an active ...

A Scaffolding Approach Using Interviews And Narrative Inquiry, Sharon Heilmann Aug 2018

A Scaffolding Approach Using Interviews And Narrative Inquiry, Sharon Heilmann

Networks: An Online Journal for Teacher Research

This article examines how educational scaffolding was used in a graduate research methods course to encourage student mastery of two qualitative research concepts, interviews and narrative inquiry. Findings suggest that scaffolding resulted in students’ mastery of both concepts as well as students’ increased attention to quality of interview questions and outcomes. Further implications suggest scaffolding would be useful in combining other qualitative topics such as integrating content analysis skills with research designs such as phenomenology, grounded theory, and case studies.

Networks: An Online Journal for Teacher Research

One goal of early childhood teacher educators is to teach in ways that model teaching young children. What better way to study curriculum than to design it? This article describes a graduate early childhood curriculum course in which the students participate in the process of designing the syllabus. They receive a syllabus empty of topics, schedule, and readings. Together, we design the course according to their interests and needs. By semester’s end there is a full reading list and schedule. The invitation to co-design curriculum provides opportunities for investigation, representation and reflection as does constructivist teaching for children, and ...


A Shout Out About Teaching For Artistic Behaviour [Tab], Valerie Clark Aug 2018

A Shout Out About Teaching For Artistic Behaviour [Tab], Valerie Clark

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

I never, ever, thought I’d be that teacher—the

one you hear screaming at the kids in their class

from half a mile away—until I became one.

I’m not a shouter. At least I wasn’t a shouter

until, after over 20 years teaching in high

schools, I began working as a specialist art

teacher in a primary school.

How did I move from good behavioural

management strategies and a working pedagogy

in the high school art room to bored, noncompliant

behaviour in the primary school? How

did I find my way back from hating art classes ...

A Descriptive Case Study To Identify The Impactful Instructional Strategies That Support Arabic Students Between Six To Twelve Year Olds In Becoming Proficient In The Development Of Oral And Written Arabic Language, Alaa Najjar

Electronic Theses & Dissertations Collection for Atlanta University & Clark Atlanta University

There are many Arab families who come every year to the United States either to study or to work. Most of these families have school-age children who were born in the United States or in their native countries. Accordingly, most of them have plans to go back to their countries, and a few are staying in the U.S. The absence of communicating in the Arabic language might cause a big problem to their children upon returning to their native country.

This mixed-methods study focused on the impactful instructional strategies that support Arabic students between six to twelve years old ...

Edtpa: The Three Keys To A Successful Classroom, Katie Baker

Honors Theses AY 17/18

My presentation will discuss the three keys to teaching in elementary and secondary classroom settings. From my personal experiences as a student teacher, learning how to teach within the no-risk confines of a college classroom turned out to be significantly different than learning how to teach in a real world classroom. As a college student, I learned teaching techniques and strategies that would hypothetically work. Additionally, I learned about developmental and pedagogical theories. As an art teacher in training, I have also observed and taught mock lessons to my peers. In short, I believed that I was thoroughly prepared to ...
