Teaching social problems through critical reasoning by Paul J Baker( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A prospectus and practical guide, this manual shows college teachers how to help students better understand social problems by comparing sociology with two other types of social knowledge (common sense and journalism) and cultivate critical thinking skills which transcend the three types of social knowledge. Chapter 1 proposes a teaching/learning strategy which asks students to assess the logical adequacy of statements selected from common sense, journalism, and sociology. Presented are pre- and posttest data from three classes which provide tentative support for the claim that rational thinking skills can be effectively learned in a social problems course. Chapter 2 provides a comparative framework for analyzing common sense, journalism, and sociology. The third chapter contains guidelines for critical reasoning which will help students analyze the adequacy of statements about social problems. The concluding chapter describes 15 classroom exercises designed to promote critical reasoning. Provided for each exercise are concept area, teaching objective, a description of materials needed, and teaching procedure. (Rm)

Pioneers of asynchronous online education at religion-based institutions of higher education : a multiple case study exploring the process of adoption of online education at three private Catholic colleges by Alan Hansen( )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This qualitative study examined the process of adopting online education at three private colleges. All three institutions participating in the study were private Catholic colleges that offered their first online courses in the late 1990s. The research question posed for this study was: Within the participating institutions, how did online education get started and what was the process for its development? Findings from this research indicated that, for an institution to successfully implement online education, four elements emerged: (a) some form of infrastructure needed to be in place that could support online education, (b) a latent force, referred to as an engine, was necessary to provide ongoing support, (c) an innovator, who had a strong interest in online education, was imperative, and (d) a brdige builder, who provided credibility, communication, and coordination between stakeholders, was critical to the sustainability of the online initiative. The institution successfully implementing online education also needed significant amounts of personnel, funding, and technology

The efficacy of the Turkish Nasreddin Hodja tales in a global citizenship pedagogy by Rebecca A Anderson( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The limited exposure of the Hodja tales in English publications provides a uniquely valuable, and previously unexplored, perspective on British, colonial/U.S. and Ottoman/Turkish cultural encounters. I investigate evolutions in text and context characterizing English translations of Hodja tales for children and adult audiences for the purpose of analyzing the dialectic nature of the cultural engagement that produced the texts. Simply stated, my project focuses on Anglo-Turkish and U.S.-Turkish cultural encounters to address ramifications relating to their contemporary alliances. The dissertation also offers theoretically-informed strategies involving literature-based approaches to global citizenship theory and pedagogy
Building complexity, one stability at a time : rethinking stubbornness in public rhetorics and writing studies by Chris Mays( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In deliberative argument, in political discourse, in teaching, and in casual conversation, as rhetors we often hope that our attempts at interaction will have some effect on the participants in these discursive environments. The phenomena of stubbornness, however, would seem to suggest that, despite our efforts, there are times when rhetoric just doesn't work. This dissertation complicates this premise, and in so doing complicates common understandings of both stubbornness and rhetorical effect. As I argue, rhetorical effects exist within a complex rhetoric system, within which they circulate and are interconnected with a diversity of other rhetorical and non-rhetorical elements. Using N. Katherine Hayles's concept of "making the cut," I argue that within such complex systems, stability and change are tangled up in an interdependent relationship; in short, in order for complexity to exist it must be constrained by contingent stabilities. These necessary stabilities mask the way that systems are always moving, and so we often do not see changes in the rhetoric systems we inhabit. In this sense, these changes are compensatory, and they work to maintain a stability that can manifest precisely as stubbornness. In delineating what I call a "rhetoric-systems" approach, this dissertation maps the stabilities and movements of several different rhetoric systems, and provides new insight into the complex and relational movement of rhetorical effect. Our use of this approach asks us to recognize the existence and value of certainty and stability, and then to pull back and recognize the existence of complexity and change. The approach integrates insights from systems theory (and so from the sciences) into existing rhetorical theory, and in so doing models an interdisciplinary approach to public rhetorics and writing studies that is firmly grounded in rhetorical theory
Firefly song by Lasantha Rodrigo( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chethiya is a brown, gay, disabled (ultimately), abused young man from Sri Lanka, who comes to the U.S. on a full scholarship. His dream is to be a Broadway star, but after coming out of his first relationship with an emotionally abusive, alcoholic man, he is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a chronic, degenerative neurological disease that results in demyelination, causing progressive debilitation. The story is divided into six chapters that narrate his life under various marginalizations he is subjected to, culminating in traumatization. The story, however, ends on a positive note of redemption with the narrator looking forward to his days to come
Watch and learn : a documentary exploring the effects of video-based pedagogy by Christopher M Noel( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 20 minute film explores the use of hybrid lesson plans, those consisting of traditional in-class teaching and interactive video outside of the classroom. Using six voluntary Graduate Teaching Assistants as participants, the documentary follows the participants as they give their ideologies on teaching, perform either a traditional lesson plan or the hybrid lesson plan, and participate in a focus group to give their opinion on the perceived benefits or drawbacks of having hybrid lesson plans in the classroom
