The Effects Of Fictional Literature On Real-World Perceptions Of Students, Dylan Dowty Apr 2021

The Effects Of Fictional Literature On Real-World Perceptions Of Students, Dylan Dowty

Honors Theses

The ways in which fiction affect the perceptions of high school students’ realities are many, and they vary widely depending on the book read. While lessons can be learned from every fictional book, certain types of books are more beneficial and relevant for students. Young adult literature, while often overlooked, is a significant source of students’ perspective shifts and metacognition. Every book has a lesson that it can teach students, but contemporary young adult literature deserves to be taught in schools alongside the classics in order for students to make personal connections with the texts they read and take an ...

Utilizing Technology As A Means Of Teacher Professionalism, Jordan Ford

Honors Theses

A key component of professionalism in education lies in each teacher’s personal commitment to professional development. Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching acts as a guide for novice and seasoned teachers alike in this endeavor. A common theme seen throughout the framework is the need for teachers to meet students where they are.

Using A Smart Phone To Learn Spanish: Does It Work And Will Students Use It?, Andrew J. Demil, Alysha Assaf, Ryan Cragun

The Coastal Review: An Online Peer-reviewed Journal

Over time, mobile devices have penetrated the classroom, requiring new and beneficial ways to implement classroom instruction. Research suggests that Short Message Service (SMS) based instruction is an effective tool for acquiring second language (L2) vocabulary and idiom knowledge (Hayati, Jalilifar, & Mashhadi; Lu,). Additionally, studies have found that students believe that mobile learning (m-learning) is beneficial to acquiring a second language (Cavus & Ibrahim; Hayati, Jalilifar, & Mashhadi; Lu, 2008). This study examined whether m-learning can lead to Spanish vocabulary familiarity and if sentence comprehension outperforms reading definitions. Participants were 29 native English speakers studying Spanish as a second language at the intermediate level. Learners ...

English As A Foreign Language Teachers Tags. Students Perceptions Of The Efl Teachers, Stefany Castiblanco Páez

Maestría en Didáctica de las Lenguas

In the process of learning a foreign language, most people consider the teachers’ profile as one of the most determinant factors when deciding whether to enroll in a program of English as a foreign language. Frequently, EFL teachers are tagged under two groups: Native English Speakers or Non-Native English Speakers; and Trained teachers or Untrained teachers. However, EFL teachers who are NNESs usually face some discriminatory practices because, despite having been trained to teach, some companies, colleagues, and students tend to undervalue them. This report seeks to answer the following questions: what are students’ perceptions of EFL teachers at a ...

A conceptual framework based on Mishra's and Kohler’s technological pedagogical content knowledge theory and Siemens’ connectivism guided the research and informed the data analysis. The ...

Lessons From The Pivot: Higher Education's Response To The Pandemic, Janine S. Davis, Christy Irish

Education Faculty Articles

The intensity of major events often leads us to remember minute details of where we were and what we were doing when they occurred: what we wore as we watched the towers fall on September 11, 2001; the faces of our classmates when the space shuttle Challenger exploded on January 28, 1986; the smell in the air when we lived through a major earthquake, fire, or other personal tragedy. Similarly, faculty, staff, and students will remember the series of moments that led to the closure of their schools and universities as the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic spread throughout the world--the timeline ...

Examining The Use Of Technology And Non-Traditional Texts In The Contemporary Ela Classroom, Oona Jeanne Atwater

Education and Human Development Master's Theses

Abstract

In today’s educational climate, it is more prevalent than ever to take into consideration the texts and mediums that we include in our ELA curriculums and also how we utilize technology to transform student learning. The use of multimodal and non-traditional texts in classrooms has been widely controversial among ELA educators and legislators. The value of these texts, whether they be in the form of video or film, graphic narratives, podcasts, tweets, memes, infographics, etc., is being evaluated against the common core and state standards, and what skills students in the ELA classroom should be learning. This paper ...

Teachers Who Reveal Jesus: How Do Pre-Service Teachers Perceive Their Strengths As Future Educators?, Peter W. Kilgour Dec 2020

Teachers Who Reveal Jesus: How Do Pre-Service Teachers Perceive Their Strengths As Future Educators?, Peter W. Kilgour

Education Book Chapters

This chapter investigates the issue of how pre-service teachers see their strengths and weaknesses as they prepare to graduate and join the ministry of teaching. The debate between professional teacher education programs covering mandated standards as opposed to providing a deep academic, philosophical, and spiritual grounding in the teaching career is examined. A small survey was completed by a cohort of pre-service teachers in their final year of study. The results indicate that these future educators seem to be more confident with their ability to relate to students than with their ability to meet all of the mandated standards and ...


Teaching Challenging Children And Revealing Jesus To Them, Marion Shields Dec 2020

Teaching Challenging Children And Revealing Jesus To Them, Marion Shields

Education Book Chapters

The term ‘emotional behavioural disorder’ (EBD) emerged in the 1960s when clinicians and educators recognised that some children display extremely inappropriate behaviours which require special educational accommodations. With the 1992 Disability Discrimination Act, followed by the 2005 Disability Standards for Education, school aged children with disabilities, including EBD, began to be enrolled in regular classrooms in Australia. Studies show that students with EBD can be very challenging for teachers, even causing some to leave the teaching profession. However, a Christian classroom, with a praying, caring and competent teacher may be the very place where these children learn to adapt their ...
