Teacher Perceptions Of The Characteristics Of Effective Teachers Of Aboriginal Middle School Students, Mort Harslett, Bernard Harrison, John Godfrey, Gary Partington, Kaye Richer Nov 2000

Teacher Perceptions Of The Characteristics Of Effective Teachers Of Aboriginal Middle School Students, Mort Harslett, Bernard Harrison, John Godfrey, Gary Partington, Kaye Richer

Australian Journal of Teacher Education

This paper reports a component of research that involved interviewing teachers identified as effective with Aboriginal students in selected primary and secondary schools in urban and regional Western Australia. The research shows that characteristics of effective teachers include understanding Aboriginal culture, history, and students’ home backgrounds; an ability to develop good relationships with Aboriginal students and their families, a sense of humour, and preparedness to invest time to interact with Aboriginal students out of the classroom in order to strengthen relationships. The research also indicates that effective teachers understand that Aboriginal students are often more independent than others, do not ...


"If You Build Them Up, They Will Stay": The Role Of Recognition And Feedback On Student Retention, James R. Jones Oct 2000

"If You Build Them Up, They Will Stay": The Role Of Recognition And Feedback On Student Retention, James R. Jones

Marketing and Management Faculty Proceedings & Presentations

While such stratagems are certainly well founded, and have achieved varying degrees of success, it may be that a more fundamentally vital area of examination is being largely overlooked, namely the impact of the high school experience. One of the critical problems facing many institutions of higher learning is that of student retention. While this issue is an important one to address across the entire student population, it has become particularly acute as relates to "minority" pupils. Accordingly, many colleges and universities have developed strategies to try to arrest enrollment attrition. These strategies typically include such mechanisms as tracking programs ...

Review Of: Realtime Spanish Cd Rom, Shaw N. Gynan

Modern & Classical Languages

RealTime Spanish is billed as an interactive, immersive journey through Spain, the objective of which is to help students to learn culture and language and to become confident speakers of Spanish. The single CD-ROM is accompanied by a ten-page pamphlet of instructions. Digital Publishing is a German company that specializes in computer-assisted language learning, and RealTime is based on an Interaktive Sprachreise series written by Sigrid Brugger and Arturo Matheu. However, the series has been "localized" for Spanish learners by Maritza Lopez.

Implementing Fluency First Activities In An Intermediate-Level Eap Reading Class, Martha Iancu Jul 2000

Implementing Fluency First Activities In An Intermediate-Level Eap Reading Class, Martha Iancu

Faculty Publications - Department of World Languages, Sociology & Cultural Studies

The goal of the intermediate level in our postsecondary intensive English program at George Fox University—a small, liberal arts university in the United States—is to introduce academic language skills to students whose institutional Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores range from 400 to 450. After using an analytical, skills-based approach for a number of years, I felt dissatisfied with the students’ level of learning. Seeking a solution, I came across an on-line discussion1 of teachers who postulate that students cannot benefit fully from instruction in higher order skills unless they have first developed basic fluency ...

Library Of Congress Classification For Judaica: Recent Changes (1995–1996), Ella Ruderman

Judaica Librarianship

This column covers the additions and changes to the Library of Congress Classification made from January 1995 to December 1996 that are relevant to Judaica libraries. Most of the changes come under classes BM (Judaism), BS (Bible), DS (History of Asia), and PJ (Oriental philology and literature). Of major significance are the following changes: (1) Class number BM198 (Hasidism. Hasidim) received a detailed breakdown, the greatest benefit of which is that it allows librarians to classify together works about individual Hasidic sects, as well as works about Hasidism in individual regions and countries. (2) The breakdown for the Holocaust under ...

Using Women's Studies/ Feminist Periodicals As A Resource For Researching Jewish Women, Phyllis Holman Weisbard May 2000

Using Women's Studies/ Feminist Periodicals As A Resource For Researching Jewish Women, Phyllis Holman Weisbard

Judaica Librarianship

Articles on Jewish women are frequently published in women's studies/ feminist periodicals, where they may not readily come to the attention of Judaica researchers owing in large measure to the difficulties inherent in the indexing of this new interdisciplinary field. From her vantage point as publisher of Feminist Periodicals: A Current Listing of Contents and with a background in Judaica librarianship, the author has taken note of a wealth of material on Jewish women, covering both religious and secular aspects of Jewish women's identity, upbringing, and psyche; the status of Israeli women and feminism in Israel; the Holocaust ...

Indexes To The Journals Of The American Jewish Historical Society: Significance, Coverage, And Format, Bella Hass Weinberg May 2000

Indexes To The Journals Of The American Jewish Historical Society: Significance, Coverage, And Format, Bella Hass Weinberg

Judaica Librarianship

The indexes to the journals of the American Jewish Historical Society are reviewed from the perspective of recent indexing standards. The significance of the journals is great, and they clearly merited indexing, but there are many flaws in the execution of the project. Inconsistency of coverage, poor vocabulary control, a lack of continuation headings, and imprecise filing are among the problems noted. The detailed indexing is praiseworthy, and these tools should be useful to librarians and researchers. References to recent indexing manuals and standards are provided.

Hebrew Codicology: An Introduction, David Kerschen May 2000

Hebrew Codicology: An Introduction, David Kerschen

Judaica Librarianship

The codex or so-called manuscript book, the precursor to the printed book, thrived in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The task of the codicologist is to analyze and describe the physical features סf the codex, or in the words סf Professor Malachi Beit-Arie, Director of the Hebrew Paleography Project at the Jewish National University Library in Jerusalem, to conduct an "archaeological examination" of a codex so that it may be correctly localized and dated. This paper explains and illustrates the most prominent features of Hebrew codicology.

Flarr Pages #19: Developing Students' Understanding Of Latin Grammar Through Sentence-Structure Analysis Sheets, Daniel N. Erickson

Latin teachers well know that students are often overwhelmed when they are making the transition from English, a word-order dependent language, to Latin, which is not and thus is highly flexible. Sentence-Structure Analysis" ("SSA") is a technique of mine that has been used successfully to help students make the transition to Latin's word order and develop an understanding of its syntax. Let us begin by considering a basic principle underlying Sentence-Structure Analysis Sheets.
