Building A Research Base For Developmentally Appropriate Practice, Rosalind Charlesworth, Craig H. Hart, Diane C. Burts, Michele Dewolf Dec 1993

Building A Research Base For Developmentally Appropriate Practice, Rosalind Charlesworth, Craig H. Hart, Diane C. Burts, Michele Dewolf

Faculty Publications

For five years a group of researchers at Lousiana State Uinversity has been studying the effects of devlopmentally appropriate and developmentally inappropriate instructional practices on the behavior and achievement of young children. This paper begins with an overview of the extent of this work. The major arguments of the critics who have examined child development as the conceptual base for early childhood education and a construct of developmentally appropriate practice from the conceptualization view are then examined. Finally, the results of the LSU studies are summarized and a case is made in support of a construct of developmentally appropriate practice ...


The Bible, Congregational Leaders, And Moral Conversation, Patrick R. Keifert Oct 1993

The Bible, Congregational Leaders, And Moral Conversation, Patrick R. Keifert

Faculty Publications

No matter how old an observation, it remains nonetheless true: We tend to remember the preacher more than the sermon, the teacher more than the lecture. Perhaps that is all we have recently learned in a preliminary study of twelve congregations in the Southwestern Minnesota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (SW Synod). However, there are some nuances that raise very important questions for theological education in seminaries and congregations—and, even more important, insights for the role of leaders and their use of Scripture in the moral conversations within congregations. In short, we have found from dozens ...

The Effect Of The Postdivorce Relationship On Paternal Involvement: A Longitudinal Analysis, Constance R. Ahrons, Richard B. Miller

Faculty Publications

Longitudinal analyses of data from 64 pairs of former spouses indicate that the quality of their postdivorce relationship had a significant impact on fathers' involvement with their children. The strength of the influence declined over time, however, as the patterns of interaction in the reorganized binuclear family became more stable.

Rule Of Law In Legal And Economic Theory, Noel B. Reynolds Apr 1993

Rule Of Law In Legal And Economic Theory, Noel B. Reynolds

Faculty Publications

Legal positivism, the leading version of legal theory, has shown that a concentration on the meanings and logical relations of legal concepts, however much supplemented by intuition, common sense and legal experience, is not adequate to make full sense out of the human experience of law, and the traditional understandings of legal obligation and rule of law in particular. However, modern economic science has advanced a radically individualistic theoretical approach which has propelled economics to the fore as the most successful of the social sciences. And its basic theoretical stance is proving both attractive and adaptable to all the other ...


"The New Guinea Highlands" Region, Culture Area, Or Fuzzy Set?, Terence E. Hays Apr 1993

"The New Guinea Highlands" Region, Culture Area, Or Fuzzy Set?, Terence E. Hays

Faculty Publications

The criteria for delineating "the New Guinea Highlands," a fundamental category in Melanesian anthropology, are variable, vague, and inconsistently applied, with the result that there is little clarity or agreement with regard to its characteristics and its membership. So far as the literature is concerned, "the New Guinea Highlands" is a fuzzy set. The common resort to notions of "cores," "margins," or "fringes" is an attempt to preserve an essentialist approach but inevitably leads to the same confusion. The continued use of "the Highlands" as an analytic or theoretical construct carries the costs of misleadingly implied homogeneity, with marginalization of ...

Postsynaptic Ca2+, But Not Cumulative Depolarization, Is Necessary For The Induction Of Associative Plasticity In Hermissenda, Ronald F. Rogers, R. F. Matzel Jan 1993

Postsynaptic Ca2+, But Not Cumulative Depolarization, Is Necessary For The Induction Of Associative Plasticity In Hermissenda, Ronald F. Rogers, R. F. Matzel

Faculty Publications

The neuronal modifications that underlie associative memory in Hermissenda have their origins in a synaptic interaction between the visual and vestibular systems, and can be mimicked by contiguous in vitro stimulation of these converging pathways. At the offset of vestibular stimulation (i.e., hair cell activity), the B photoreceptors are briefly released from synaptic inhibition resulting in a slight depolarization (2–4 mV). If contiguous pairings of light-induced depolarization and presynaptic vestibular activity occur in close temporal succession, this depolarization “accumulates” and has been hypothesized to culminate in a sustained rise in intracellular Ca2+ and a resultant Ca(2+)-mediated ...

Developmental Appropriateness Of Kindergarten Programs And Academic Outcomes In First Grade, Diane C. Burts, Craig H. Hart, Rosalind Charlesworth, Michele Dewolf, Jeanette Ray, Karen Manuel, Pamela O. Fleege Jan 1993

Developmental Appropriateness Of Kindergarten Programs And Academic Outcomes In First Grade, Diane C. Burts, Craig H. Hart, Rosalind Charlesworth, Michele Dewolf, Jeanette Ray, Karen Manuel, Pamela O. Fleege

Faculty Publications

This study explored the relationship between the developmental appropriateness of kindergarten classroom instruction and first-grade report card grade overall averages and average in reading, language, spelling, math, science, and social studies. the interactive roles that gender, SES, and kindergarten classroom type play in children's later achievement were also examined. The sample consisted of 166 first-grade children who had attended kindergarten classrooms with teaching practices identified as predominately developmentally appropriate or developmentally inappropriate. Findings indicated that first-graders from more appropriate kindergarten classrooms had higher reading averages than children from less appropriate kindergarten classrooms. Females had higher overall and subject area ...
