Revealing Jesus Through Teacher Relationships: How Educators’ Relationships Impact The Ethos Of The Learning Environment, Beverly Christian Dec 2019

Revealing Jesus Through Teacher Relationships: How Educators’ Relationships Impact The Ethos Of The Learning Environment, Beverly Christian

Education Book Chapters

This chapter draws on data from original qualitative research to explore the nature of the relationships which may contribute to an educational learning environment with a Christian ethos. The literature revealed the importance of positive relationships on student achievement, socioemotional wellbeing and connection, but also highlighted a scarcity of research that explored the nature of educators’ relationships and how they shape perceptions of the learning environment. Using the Gospel of John as an exemplar of Jesus’ relationships, this investigation used a narrative sensemaking approach to identify six types of relationships that teachers and administrators value as influencing their own capacity ...

Taking The Mentoring Of New Teacher Educators Seriously: Lessons From A Clinically-Intensive Teacher Preparation Program, Patricia J. Norman, Sara A S Sherwood, Rocio Delgado, Melissa Siller Jul 2019

Taking The Mentoring Of New Teacher Educators Seriously: Lessons From A Clinically-Intensive Teacher Preparation Program, Patricia J. Norman, Sara A S Sherwood, Rocio Delgado, Melissa Siller

Education Faculty Research

The challenges facing teacher educators entering their first faculty position in a clinically intensive teacher preparation program reflect similar difficulties that novice teachers encounter upon entry to their own classroom. Just as new teachers must learn the ropes while performing the work of teaching (Feiman-Nemser, 2001; Wildman, Niles, Magliaro, & McLaughlin, 1989), so, too, must novice teacher educators learn to create clinically based learning opportunities for teacher candidates (American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, 2018; Grossman, Hammerness & McDonald, 2009) while learning to navigate the university system, establish their practice as field-based practitioners, earn strong student/course evaluations (Ramsden, 2003) and address the realities of "publish or perish" (Russell & Korthagen, 1995).

Extending The Apprenticeship Of Observation: How Mentee Experience Shape Mentors, Christina J. Lunsmann, Jori S. Beck, Derek R. Riddle, Chyllis E. Scott, Amy B. Adkins

Teaching & Learning Faculty Publications

Although the importance of mentor teachers in clinical teacher preparation is well established, few researchers explore the social identity development of these individuals. Through our study we contribute to the body of research by exploring mentor teachers' social identity development through the concept of Apprenticeship of Observation - specifically, how they felt their own mentoring experiences influenced their approaches to mentoring. The multi-case study includes findings about mentoring beliefs and practices during the laboratory school component of an Alternate Route to Licensure program. Incorporating semi-structured interviews and video analysis, the findings demonstrate how four mentor teachers' prior experiences as mentees - including ...

Biology Faculty Publications

Afterschool interventions in STEM are linked to learning gains during the school day. These opportunities engage and excite students about STEM concepts since they observe a more hands-on, project-oriented approach. Often these opportunities for afterschool interventions are infrequent in nature and leave gaps for students in their maturation and understanding. Herein we describe the first report of an afterschool intervention, named NE STEM 4U, targeting socioeconomically disadvantaged middle school youth via a twice weekly, year-long intervention, studied across two years. We assessed the impact of this program on i.) short-term, individual student gains in STEM content knowledge and ii.) delivery ...

“Ever Since I Left The City”: An Auto-Ethnographic Action Research Project On Interpreting In A K-12 Setting, Halle Hamilton

Master's of Arts in Interpreting Studies (MAIS) Action Research

This paper discusses the auto-ethnographic action research project that I conducted with the goal of improving my work as an interpreter and therefore reducing the “readiness to work gap” in my own professional practice. This action research project contained two different approaches with the goal of leading to self-improvement in my interpreting ability. The first approach involved working with a mentor to create goals that work toward the improvement of specific aspects of my interpreting process. This was typically done by selecting a sources text that would lend itself to practice working towards a specific interpreting goal. With limited mentoring ...

A Case Study Of The Stakeholders' Perception Of The Effectiveness Of A South Carolina District Mentorship Program, Donna Floyd

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The purpose of this case study is to understand the perceptions of participants in St. John’s County School District concerning the effectiveness of the mentorship program in the county. The Theory of Teacher Development (Fuller, 1969; Katz, 1972) guided the research. This theory states the induction programs should follow pre-service preparation, which will reduce the teacher attrition rate. A single case study was chosen so that the mentorship program could be studied using the perceptions of the participants in the program. The two research questions that guided the study is as follows: “What are the beginning teachers’ perceptions of ...

Examining Generativity Development Among College Student Leaders Who Mentor, Hannah M. Sunderman May 2018

Examining Generativity Development Among College Student Leaders Who Mentor, Hannah M. Sunderman

Theses, Dissertations, & Student Scholarship: Agricultural Leadership, Education & Communication Department

The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to examine the influence, if any, of age cohort on generativity among college student leaders who mentor. While previous research has revealed that college student leaders who mentor tend to demonstrate higher levels of generativity than other college student leaders and general college students (Hastings, Griesen, Hoover, Creswell, & Dlugosh, 2015), research as to the development of generativity among college student leaders who mentor has not been determined. Additionally, a need exists for further research on the antecedents of generativity (McAdams, 2001, p. 434). The current study sought to fill these gaps in the ...
