“It Was Like Really Uncomfortable But Kind Of Comfortable”: An Ethnographically-Informed Radio Play Of Adult Esl Classes With Educational Drama, Won Kim

Journal of Pedagogy, Pluralism, and Practice

This chapter explores possibilities and challenges of educational drama-based second language instruction for adult emergent bilingual learners. A part of the key findings from an ethnographic multiple case study of four adult ESL classes with educational drama in Canada will be represented, using playwriting as a means to uncover diverse nuanced insights and reflexive understandings of the phenomenon under investigation. The primary purpose of this ethnographically-informed radio play script is to serve as reflexive, dynamic, and artistic expressions that speak (about and to) students’ voices concerning their learning experiences in the course as heard/felt/perceived by the researcher as ...

Anxiety And Focus In Work-Related Training, Steven Howard Harlan Jan 2015

Anxiety And Focus In Work-Related Training, Steven Howard Harlan

Walden Dissertations and Doctoral Studies

Currently, nonemployee students who take General Electric's (GE's) pollution control classes do not demonstrate consistent knowledge gains following training. The purpose of this project was to investigate whether the independent variables of level of education and choice in attending the class made a significant difference in the means of the dependent variables of anxiety and ability to focus. The project was influenced by the theory of andragogy, which explores the motivations and principles specific to the teaching of adults. The research questions for this study probed relationships between level of formal education among participants and their choice in ...


Changing Paradigms In Online Education: Perceptions And Experiences Of Nontraditional Adult Learners In The Emergency Services, R. Jeffery Maxfield Jan 2012

Changing Paradigms In Online Education: Perceptions And Experiences Of Nontraditional Adult Learners In The Emergency Services, R. Jeffery Maxfield

R. Jeffery Maxfield

Planning for the unknown incident or emergency event makes the task of college and university educators not only interesting, but also extremely challenging. Max van Manen (1990) argued that the prescribed method for human science, in contrast to natural science involved description, interpretations, and self-reflective or critical analysis. In other words, we explain nature, but we must understand human life. This assertion seems to suggest learning strategies that expand beyond traditional pedagogies. The experience of nontraditional, emergency services students, in an asynchronous online environment appeared to be filled with comparison and contrast. While using prior experience and learning schemas, the ...

Nf97-328 A Guide To Grasshopper Control In Cropland (Revised May 2004), Gary L. Hein, John B. Campbell

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Grasshoppers have been a major concern to farmers and ranchers since Nebraska was first settled. The potential for devastation, while still serious, is not as great as it was 100 years ago because many of the prime grasshopper breeding areas along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains are now under tillage. Statewide, grasshopper populations fluctuate in cycles with large numbers occurring for two to four years, followed by moderate numbers for several years.

This NebFact discusses grasshopper damage to cropland, how to determine when control is required and methods of control.

Mp92-64 The Stable Fly: A Pest Of Humans And Domestic Animals, Gustave D. Thomas, Steven R. Skoda

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Many species of flies are pests. Many people, if you were to ask them about flies, would be at least vaguely aware of the potential to flies to transmit disease organisms. But yet, for the most part, a fly is a fly is a fly. Sayings like "It must be about to rain, the house flies are biting" are still common and show a general need for more, readily accessible information, particularly about some of the pest flies.

Stable flies, obligate blood-feeders, are very important pests to the cattle industry and, at times, are pests to other groups (they're ...

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

In 1991, there has been a lot of concern about the clover leaf weevil in alfalfa in eastern Nebraska. Many farmers in the eastern one-third of the state experienced problems with the regrowth of alfalfa after the first cutting in 1990, caused by the feeding of the adult of this insect. This NebFact discusses the difference between the alfalfa weevil and the clover leaf weevil and to control them in the field(s).


Student's Strategies With Learner-Controlled Call, Carol Chapelle, Suesue Mizuno Jan 1989

Student's Strategies With Learner-Controlled Call, Carol Chapelle, Suesue Mizuno

English Publications

A degree of learner-control is implicit in most current CALL activities; however, research to-date has not investigated students' performance in such environments. This paper reports a first step toward the necessary investigation by documenting students' use of five strategies while they worked on learner-controlled CALL grammar lessons. The results indicated the need for teachers and researchers alike to observe students use of CALL.
