Ethical Breach And The Schizophrenic Process: Theorizing The Judge And The Teacher, Heather Greenhalgh-Spencer, Bryce Bartlett 2010 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Ethical Breach And The Schizophrenic Process: Theorizing The Judge And The Teacher, Heather Greenhalgh-Spencer, Bryce Bartlett

Journal of Educational Controversy

As the title of this piece suggests, we theorize some of the similarities and differences between the judging and teaching profession. At first glance, the differences seem more apparent than any similarities. As we've discussed this text with colleagues and friends, overwhelmingly, the first question asked is: A judge and teacher, what do they have in common? However, we believe that the judge and teacher are uniquely positioned as fraternal partners across the labor/cultural landscape; we see more similarities than differences.


Waiting For Superman: He’S “Adequate” And Near Proficient!, Alice E. Ginsberg 2010 Western Washington University

Waiting For Superman: He’S “Adequate” And Near Proficient!, Alice E. Ginsberg

Journal of Educational Controversy

In the second week of its national release, the documentary film Waiting for Superman-- about America’s so-called “failing” public school system-- jumped from number 194 in gross receipts to number 20 (Entertainment Weekly, 2010). It couldn’t have hurt that the film was featured as a cover story by Amanda Ripley (2010) in Time magazine only a few weeks earlier, with the provocative tag line: “Can a movie change education?” (Ripley, 2010). Or for that matter, that the film was lauded on The Oprah Winfrey Show (2010), during the course of which Oprah, so moved by the movie, pledged …

Holistic Religious Education: Toward A More Transparent Pathway From Philosophy To Practice, Lanelle Cobbin 2010 Avondale College

Holistic Religious Education: Toward A More Transparent Pathway From Philosophy To Practice, Lanelle Cobbin

Theses Masters Coursework

The challenge to match philosophy with practice is an age-old concern. For Seventh-day Adventist Education, the challenge is no different. Within this context rests religious education. In this more specific realm, this challenge has been impeded in a number of different ways. Two are relevant to this study. The Adventist religious education classroom could well be considered a nexus for the purposes of Adventist educational philosophy. It holds much potential for holistic, authentic faith formation. There is evidence to suggest however, that in recent years, instruction in religious education within the context of Adventist Education has been somewhat paralysed by …


Educating Politicians As Playwrights: Toward A Sustainable World In Creative Conflict, Daniel Larner 2010 Fairhaven College, Western Washington University

Educating Politicians As Playwrights: Toward A Sustainable World In Creative Conflict, Daniel Larner

Journal of Educational Controversy

If drama is the art of making the unseen visible, it is also the art of getting into the skin of another. This fundamental act of immersion and suspended judgment forms an extraordinary opportunity for teaching the power of point of view, examining contrary arguments about an issue, examining personal assumptions and boundaries, and illustrating what it takes to create and maintain justice and democracy. This paper tries to show how educating politicians as playwrights could help create the conditions for a democratic, sustainable polity to emerge.

We were in the middle of a discussion of a job description for …


Opening Minds: Aesthetic Engagement In The Language Arts, Jane S. Townsend, Patrick A. Ryan 2010 Unverisity of Florida

Opening Minds: Aesthetic Engagement In The Language Arts, Jane S. Townsend, Patrick A. Ryan

Journal of Educational Controversy

We are concerned with possibility, with opening windows on alternative realities, with moving through doorways into spaces some of us have never seen before. We are interested in releasing diverse persons from confinement to the actual, particularly confinement to the world of techniques and skill training, to fixed categories and measurable competencies. We are interested in breakthroughs and new beginnings, in the kind of wide-awakeness that allows for wonder and unease and questioning and the pursuit of what is not yet (Greene, 2001, p. 44).

Supporting Maxine Greene’s call “to awaken” our perceptions through art, we, as English teacher educators, …


Well-Prepared Middle School Teachers: Common Ground Or Subtle Divide Between Practitioners And University Faculty In The State Of Oregon, United States, Linda L. Samek, Younghee M. Kim, Jay Casbon, Micki M. Caskey, William L. Greene, Patricia Maureen Musser 2010 George Fox University

Well-Prepared Middle School Teachers: Common Ground Or Subtle Divide Between Practitioners And University Faculty In The State Of Oregon, United States, Linda L. Samek, Younghee M. Kim, Jay Casbon, Micki M. Caskey, William L. Greene, Patricia Maureen Musser

Curriculum and Instruction Faculty Publications and Presentations

This qualitative study followed a survey study that investigated university faculty, classroom teachers, and principals' perceptions of well-prepared middle school teachers in the state of Oregon in the United States. A qualitative approach allowed the researchers to explore and interpret the participants' views (Denzin & Lincoln, 1998). In spite of many similarities, a number of differences in emphasis or priority were found among the groups, including views on assessment, curriculum development, and the importance of family and community connections for beginning classroom teachers. This study provides a foundation for deeper analysis and discussion among university faculty and practitioners concerning the …

Mammal Capture Success Of Scent Stations And Remote Cameras In Prairie And Forest Habitat, Marc N. McKinney, Aaron M. Haines 2010 Upper Iowa University

Mammal Capture Success Of Scent Stations And Remote Cameras In Prairie And Forest Habitat, Marc N. Mckinney, Aaron M. Haines

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Two common noninvasive (i.e., no stress to the animal) methods used to survey mammals include track stations (i.e., track captures of mammals) and remote camera-traps (i.e., photo-captures of mammals). Our objectives were to compare capture effectiveness of both track stations and remote cameras in both forested and prairie habitats. This project was conducted on 4 study sires (2 forested sires and 2 prairie sites) located in Fayette County, Iowa. Each study site had 6 trapping stations 2:: 100 m apart. We monitored traps for a total of 216 trap nights and we recorded a total of 368 captures composed of …


Formative Assessment Practices With Benchmark Testing: Phase I, Lisa Abrams, Angela P. Wetzel, James H. McMillan 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

Formative Assessment Practices With Benchmark Testing: Phase I, Lisa Abrams, Angela P. Wetzel, James H. Mcmillan

MERC Publications

The recent popularity of benchmark testing has become closely tied to formative assessment. Formative assessment has traditionally focused on a process in which evidence elicited from classroom assessments is used to provide feedback to students and inform instructional correctives (McMillan, 2007: 2010, Popham, 2008). However, accountability demands have led to widespread implementation of benchmark, interim, periodic, or quarterly testing at the school or district level that is often labeled “formative.” Indeed, some in the testing industry believe that benchmark testing is formative assessment. For example, the definition of benchmark testing by the Regional Education Laboratory Mid-Atlantic is that “a benchmark …

Building Lexical Awareness Through Sustained Authentic Text, Jeff Puccini 2010 SIT Graduate Institute

Building Lexical Awareness Through Sustained Authentic Text, Jeff Puccini

MA TESOL Collection

This paper describes an experiment to implement a lexical approach in the context of a High-intermediate ESL classroom. The vehicle for building students’ lexical awareness was Sustained Authentic Text (SAT). SATs, a term I coined, refers to texts like newspapers, TV programs, etc. covered for a prolonged period—a month or more, as opposed to one-off lessons, or traditional textbooks. The students were young adults studying in a non-credit Intensive English Program (IEP) in San Francisco and the paper focuses on one two-month period during which time the SAT was the TV sitcom, Two and a Half Men. The paper …

Extensive Reading In The Classroom, Petulla Domenica

MA TESOL Collection

In this paper I explore the advantages and benefits of extensive reading in an ESL classroom. The purpose of my paper is to further my understanding of reading in a second language and to start the process of implementing an extensive reading program for my particular teaching context. In the first half of the paper there is an overview of reading in a second language, the benefits of extensive reading and Louis M. Rosenblatt's aesthetic and efferent reading stances. The last two chapters focus on particular challenges, issues and questions I must resolve before I am able to implement extensive …


Grounding Theory In Practice: A Reflection On Designing And Delivering A Workshop On Intercultural Sensitivity For Korean Public School English Teachers, Kevin Giddens 2010 SIT Graduate Institute

Grounding Theory In Practice: A Reflection On Designing And Delivering A Workshop On Intercultural Sensitivity For Korean Public School English Teachers, Kevin Giddens

MA TESOL Collection

In this paper I will use a process of rigorous reflection to explore the design and implementation of a cross-cultural simulation workshop as a means of developing intercultural sensitivity among Korean public school English teachers in Daegu, South Korea. After introducing the workshop design I will describe in detail my experience of delivering the workshop. I will overlay Milton J. Bennett’s model for developing intercultural sensitivity (1993) with participant reflections as a means of grounding theory to practice and exploring whether or not participants were able to demonstrate observable movement within Bennett’s model. I will then highlight some possible modifications …

Who Pays And Who Benefits: 21st Century Tax Reform For Maine, University Of Maine

General University of Maine Publications

This paper discussed three major issues, with the goal of clarifying the characteristics of LD 1495, the tax reform package that will be either upheld or repealed in June: 1) the features of “good” state tax systems; 2) the characteristics and limitations of Maine’s current tax system, and 3) the features, changes and implications of the new law. Finally, a range of taxation policy recommendations were discussed.
