Students As Learners And Teachers: Taking Responsibility, Transforming Education, And Redefining Accountability, Alison Cook-Sather 2010 Bryn Mawr College

Students As Learners And Teachers: Taking Responsibility, Transforming Education, And Redefining Accountability, Alison Cook-Sather

Education Program Faculty Research and Scholarship

As has been the case throughout the history of education in the United States, the current structures and practices of U.S. schools and colleges are informed by particular ideals regarding the potential of education. Through this comparative descriptive analysis, I argue that a major reason why these ideals have rarely been realized is the way that students are positioned in educational institutions, dialogues, and reform. A preliminary argument for rethinking how we conceptualize student role and responsibility frames my description and comparison of two programs, one that involves secondary students in the preparation of high school teachers and one ...

Resolving A Cultural Conflict In The Classroom: An Exploration Of Preservice Teachers' Perceptions Of Effective Interventions, Catherine L. Polydore, Kamau Oginga Siwatu 2010 Eastern Illinois University

Resolving A Cultural Conflict In The Classroom: An Exploration Of Preservice Teachers' Perceptions Of Effective Interventions, Catherine L. Polydore, Kamau Oginga Siwatu

Catherine L. Polydore

This study employed qualitative research methods to explore presservice teachers' thoughts about the effectiveness of interventions designed to resolve a cultural conflict involving an African American student. Ninety-five preservice teachers in the Southwest read a 300-word case study that was followed b y four experienced teachers' responses and their proposed culturally or non-culturally responsive interventions. Participants were asked to identify which of the four interventions were most and least effective and supplement their responses with an explanation. The results revealed that most preservice teachers were aware of the effectiveness of interventions that incorporated the student's culture into the teaching ...


Test Anxiety And Relaxation Training In Third-Grade Students, Heidi A. Larson, Angela M. Yoder, Colleen Johnson, Mera El Rahami, Jiwon Sung, Fred Washburn 2010 Eastern Illinois University

Test Anxiety And Relaxation Training In Third-Grade Students, Heidi A. Larson, Angela M. Yoder, Colleen Johnson, Mera El Rahami, Jiwon Sung, Fred Washburn

Angela M Yoder

As testing becomes an achievement marker for elementary school children, test anxiety would naturally follow for these children. This study looks at test anxiety in third grade students, as well as relaxation training as a treatment modality to deal with that anxiety. One hundred and four third grade students participated in this study. Those students that received relaxation training experienced less test anxiety after the treatment. Students in the control group showed no changes in test anxiety. The use of relaxation training among third grade students may be a beneficial method for teachers to reduce anxiety in their students.

Historical Short Stories And The Nature Of Science In A High School Biology Class, Jennifer Ann Reid Smith 2010 Iowa State University

Historical Short Stories And The Nature Of Science In A High School Biology Class, Jennifer Ann Reid Smith

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

To overcome students' misconceptions regarding the nature of science, it is essential that teachers utilize instructional activities that accurately and explicitly portray the nature of science within the context of the science content being taught. This study examines the impact of implementing two historical short stories in a high school biology course during units on genetics and biological evolution. The stories describe the lives and work of Mendel and Darwin and how their scientific ideas were developed. Questions embedded in the stories explicitly draw students' attention to key nature of science concepts. Students in the treatment group demonstrated significantly higher ...


(Re)Storying Obama: An Examination Of Recently Published Informational Texts, Laura A. May, Teri Holbrook, Laura E. Meyers 2010 Georgia State University

(Re)Storying Obama: An Examination Of Recently Published Informational Texts, Laura A. May, Teri Holbrook, Laura E. Meyers

Early Childhood and Elementary Education Faculty Publications

American publishers have published numerous children’s books about Barack Obama over the past several years; most take the form of informational biographies. This article reports on a research project aimed at how these books incorporate sociohistorical narratives, particularly those related to the civil rights movement. Though the features of the books might cause the reader to presume political neutrality, the books link readers to distinct Discourses (Gee, 1996), suggesting particular ideologies. In this article, we identified the following differences: (1) specific happenings from Obama’s life were included in some texts while omitted in others; (2) when the events ...

Early Childhood and Elementary Education Faculty Publications

Teachers and researchers have found that having writing materials in all play centers in early childhood classrooms makes it easy for children to experience and work with print as they play with names. Children’s interest in their own names can be used as a tool for increasing their awareness of and experiences with print awareness and writing.


Quality Of Education, Comparability, And Assessment Choice In Developing Countries, Daniel A. Wagner 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Quality Of Education, Comparability, And Assessment Choice In Developing Countries, Daniel A. Wagner

Journal Articles (Literacy.org)

Over the past decade, international development agencies have begun to emphasize the improvement of the quality (rather than simply quantity) of education in developing countries. This new focus has been paralleled by a significant increase in the use of educational assessments as a way to measure gains and losses in quality. As this interest in assessment has grown, low-income countries have begun to adopt and adapt international and other assessments for a variety of uses, including the comparability of national quality with other countries, improved ways of measuring reading achievement, and further attempts to reach marginalized populations within a country ...

Technology And Mother-Tongue Literacy In Southern India: Impact Studies Among Young Children And Out-Of-School Youth, Daniel A. Wagner, C. J. Daswani, Romilla Karnati

Journal Articles (Literacy.org)

The present research began with one main question: How can new technologies be effective for poor and illiterate children and youth in developing countries? We addressed this question through a research-based implementation project in India that included the development of local language multimedia software for literacy; a built-in, user-friendly interface; and the use of existing computer infrastructure. Two studies were undertaken in Andhra Pradesh state. One included a sample of youth and young adults who had never gone to school (or dropped out early) in peri-urban Hyderabad, and the other was composed of young second- and third-grade school children in ...
