Stem Identity Development For Latinas: The Role Of Self- And Outside Recognition, Sarah L. Rodriguez, Kelly Cunningham, Alec Jordan

Education Publications

This qualitative, phenomenological research study explored how 17 Latina undergraduate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors developed their STEM identities. The study focused on the role that self- and outside recognition as a STEM individual played in the process. Interviews revealed students’ self-recognition in many forms.

Applying A Freirian Lens On Social Justice Education: One Practitioner’S Perspective, D. Scott Tharp

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

Freire’s writings beyond Pedagogy of the Oppressed offer value to social justice educators looking to deeply explore and inform their own practice. His ideas related to class suicide, authority and freedom, political clarity, educational directivity and epistemological circling can enhance social justice educators approach to recognizing personal prejudices, negotiating emotions, personal disclosure, and navigating authority in educational settings. Through phenomenological reflections on my social justice education practice as a curriculum designer and facilitator within higher education, Freire’s ideas are used to analyze my experiences and provide insight for how I can re-imagine my practice to contribute to democratic ...

Bringing Theory And Practice Together In The Crosscultural Preparation Of Newly Arrived International Students: An Integrated Program Model , Maria Luiza De Melo Dreasher Jan 1993

Bringing Theory And Practice Together In The Crosscultural Preparation Of Newly Arrived International Students: An Integrated Program Model , Maria Luiza De Melo Dreasher

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The literature shows that, in general, practitioners in the field of crosscultural preparation are more willing to experiment with new program ideas than they are to identify the conceptual and theoretical foundations of their practice. In other words, those in charge of designing crosscultural preparation programs are doing so without the proper consideration of the theories that should support the program design process, thereby compromising the potential effectiveness of such programs. This study attempts to narrow this gap between theory and practice by proposing a program model for the orientation and training of newly arrived international students, which is called ...
