Title VII demonstration projects program in bilingual instructional methodology : final report (1981-84) by Rodolfo Jacobson( Book )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes a demonstration project whose instructional design implemented sociolinguistic concepts in bilingual education and compared two approaches, the New Concurrent and the Language Separation approaches. The first section is a review of research studies concerning this instructional design. The second, third, and fourth sections describe the selection, responsibilities, and inservice education of teachers and aides. The fifth section describes enrollment patterns, and the sixth section summarizes the research portion of the project. The seventh section describes the purchase of equipment and materials and the benefits to the teaching staff, children, school district, and university of the use of federal funds. Section eight discusses parent involvement, and section nine outlines methods of student, program, and personnel assessment. Section ten summarizes the findings concerning nine project elements: the project children's academic potential, the demonstration objectives and research findings, impact on the district, the significance of support by a local educational authority, the teacher-aide teams, the future of the bilingual methods tested, the contribution to bilingual research, and the replication potential. It is concluded that both methods tested are valid options and that the demonstration project is a valuable method for conducting research. (Mse)
Does region still matter? : analysis of changing social attitudes among Southerners and nonSoutherners, 1972-2012 by Thomas R Moore( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this project is to explore whether regionalism --specifically southern distinctiveness-- persists in the contemporary US. While this was a popular area of study prior to and through the 1980s, the topic of regionalism has largely disappeared from the contemporary sociological landscape with only a handful of exceptions. The present study uses pooled data from the NORC General Social Surveys to explore the persistence and/or change of white southern distinctiveness by examining attitudes toward African American inequality, the role of government in helping the poor, homosexuality and civic tolerance. The paper first discusses theoretical causes for declining southern distinctiveness. These potential causes are largely guided by Durkheim's Division of Labor. Briefly, as society advances, increased interdependence on others from different backgrounds along with increased mobility challenges the value of regional culture and attitudes. In this environment, holding onto regional culture may hinder full and effective participation in society therefore leading to a decline in southern distinctiveness. In spite of this, there are a number of tools which may work to maintain regional differences. Namely, the southern culture, with an "insularity of mind", cultural carriers like religion and family, may all work together to maintain that characteristics that make the southern region stand out. The paper also considers how cohort and period effects may vary in influence by region thus working to potentially challenge and maintain regional distinctiveness. The study uses the cumulative 1972-2012 GSS dataset in the exploration of how the American south has or has not remained distinct. Estimating appropriate regression models, differences between southerners and nonsoutherners are explored. Also recognizing the potential influence of migration in or out of a South the study also considers how residents new to the South and Nonsouth differ from native nonsoutherners. This permits the opportunity to see whether or not and to what degree early socialization matters. Additionally, the models also consider cohort and year effects in order to better demonstrate the nuance of regional distinctiveness and its change over time. The findings indicate a number of valuable outcomes which will be discussed in detail. First, the results of all of the models suggest that region still matters. In short, even when controlling for various effects, southerners continue to indicate more socially conservative attitudes than nonsoutherners. Additionally, contact with the South, be it as a child or as an adult, is also associated with indicating attitudes that are more congruent with native southerners than native nonsoutherners. The findings show that the effects of migration on social attitudes are nuanced and may vary depending upon the social attitude being examined. Last, the result from the study show that in spite of continued regional distinctiveness, there is some evidence that southern and nonsouthern attitudes on a number of social issues may be slowly converging. Though far from the rapid convergence some may have proposed two decades ago, this is slow and with its own qualifications
The nature of peer coaching at a National Writing Project summer institute by Sylvia S Minton( )

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

Peer coaching is an alternative form of professional development in which teachers coach other teachers in the development of their practice. Studies have shown that teachers who have participated in a peer-coaching model have a higher rate of transfer of skill when compared to teachers who do not participate in this type of model. Although peer coaching has been proven to be effective, there is a lack of research documenting peer coaching interactions, how peers establish trust, and how they perceive peer coaching to impact their instruction. Analyzing how peers interact and what they say to each other to move instruction forward is therefore, important to understanding how school leaders and program directors can set up their environments to encourage these types of interactions. The participants for this study enrolled in a National Writing Project summer institute. The data set for this study included semi-structured interviews, stimulated recall interviews, and digital entries relevant to the inquiry. To identify the codes, categories, and themes emerging from the data set, this study used constant comparative analysis. Findings from this study suggest that informal interactions are just as important as formal interactions in building trust between peer coaches. Findings also suggest the importance of the writing group as paramount and purposeful for both composing and teaching writing. Findings also suggest that trust is built quickly in an environment such as a National Writing Project summer institute. Participants felt a sense of comfort when they were able to attend this summer institute with somebody that they already knew, believing that this helped them in establishing an initial level of comfort that served as a springboard for building additional relationships. Future research could continue to analyze both formal and informal interactions at the summer institute to revise a model of peer coaching that would assist program leaders in developing and enhancing the interactions between participants

The port in the storm : Mario Ramirez, Hurricane Beulah, and the lower Rio Grande Valley by Fernando Ortiz( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This historical analysis focuses on the Lower Rio Grande Valley, particularly Starr County. It reviewed thousands of pages of archival records, historical news reports, feature profiles, city, state, and federal government documents, interviews, videos, and academic examinations. This thesis borrows biographical, narrative, and borderlands history approaches to portray Dr. Mario E. Ramirez as a man who believed that he could make a difference in many Valley lives. It argues and demonstrates that he successfully and repeatedly realized that belief throughout the fields of medicine, politics, and education. The thesis examines 1967's Hurricane Beulah as a dramatic example of how Ramirez --who assumed a leadership role in the medical relief efforts on both sides of the Rio Grande -- utilized his community standing, his professional standing as a South Texas doctor, and his familiarity with a predominantly Mexican-American population to improve his Starr County community. The Beulah relief efforts enhanced his image as a role model, as a legitimate community voice, and as a state and national representative of Valley needs. Ramirez's political and professional achievements enabled him to guide thousands of Valley residents into medical careers. Many of them returned to the Valley, as he did, to care for their communities. His ambitions also made him a cornerstone of efforts to build and strengthen medical education and health care throughout South Texas
Deinstitutionalizing difference : asylums for the severely or profoundly mentally retarded between 1960-2000 by Michael Ely( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a history between 1960 and 2000 of asylums operated in the United States for children labeled as "severely or profoundly mentally retarded," and "emotionally and behaviorally disturbed." I use one primary case study of the Willowbrook State School in Staten Island, New York. Willowbrook has already received some focus in the works of David and Shelia Rothman as well as Drs. David Goode, Darryl Hill, and William Bronston, and Geraldo Rivera's newscast in 1972. Primary focus has been given to it because it is both unique and indicative of asylums across the U.S. during the mid 20th Century. It was unique in some of the severity of treatment, which its residents experienced, but overall mirrors national trends in brutal and neglectful living conditions. It also signals larger national trends in the mid to late 70s, which carry over into the 80s and early 90s as part of the deinstitutionalization movement. I find that this movement was largely a response to the conditions for which Willowbrook became a national symbol. Furthermore, even in the wake of the deinstitutionalization movement, there are many problems with federal and state policy that disproportionately disaffect people of color as well as poor people. Finally, I argue that the historical canon must expand somewhat to take into account Deleuze and Guattari's ideas about Societies of Control. Many scholars, such as the Rothman, Tonya Titchkosky, Kim E. Nielsen, and others base their work on the Foucault's notion of a 'disciplinary' society. But Deleuze (sometimes with Guattari) offers a sympathetic critique of Foucault's understanding of discipline that adds a great deal of depth to the study of asylums and deinstitutionalization in the mid to late 20th Century
Molecular targets of chromatin marks H3K4ME3, H3K9ME3 and H3K27ME3 in an adult germinal niche by Christopher T Rhodes( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neural stem cells (NSCs) participate in a delicate balance between maintaining cellular identity through self-renewal and differentiating into myriad neural cell types. Understanding exactly how epigenetic mechanisms regulate this balance and the subsequent differentiation process in adult mammalian brain is an ongoing effort. We conducted a genome wide association study to elucidate the roles of genes in neural progenitors regulated by chromatin modifications. Neural progenitors of baboon SVZ were examined using ChIP-Seq (chromatin immuneprecipitation followed by deep sequencing) to determine genome wide gene targets of three histone modifications: H3K4me3, H3K9me3 and H3K27me3. Our data suggest these chromatin marks are associated with genes responsible for cellular organization and morphology, proliferation and survival, neuron development. Taken together these processes suggest histone modifications, predominantly H3K27me3, are responsible for maintenance of NSC identity. Our findings also highlight the importance of using in vivo models to study the SVZ neurogenic niche and compel examination of the H3K27me3 catalyzing enzyme EZH2. In the future, the role of EZH2 will be determined by EZH2 conditional knockout and overexpression models, using stereotaxic injections of novel Cre protein and lentiviral delivery of EZH2, respectively
Social and reproductive strategies of male mantled howlers (Alouatta palliata) at La Pacifica, Costa Rica by Lisa Cheryl Corewyn( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines the competitive and cooperative strategies of male mantled howlers (Alouatta palliata) living within a fragmented habitat at La Pacifica (LP), Costa Rica. Mantled howlers exhibit considerable intraspecific variation in their social behavior, and there remains much to learn regarding the nature of their sociality and the proximate mechanisms that underlie it, particularly among males living in multimale groups. In contrast to males at other mantled howler study sites, males at LP had higher rates of within-group agonism, and exhibited clear dominance hierarchies. Both groups inhabited a fragmented forest, which may exert greater pressure to compete for both food and reproductive resources than mantled howler males living in more intact forests. However, data from this dissertation also suggest that males may adjust competitive relationships as forest fragment characteristics within the same population vary. The group inhabiting the larger forest fragment experienced higher intergroup competition but lower intragroup competition than the group inhabiting the smaller fragment, allowing higher-ranking males to be more tolerant of subordinates accessing key resources, including females, in order to cooperate in group defense. Despite clear hierarchies, males at LP nevertheless form both preferred and avoided associations with specific males, which suggest that cooperative relationships among males have adaptive value. Neither rank nor age emerged as clear drivers shaping competitive and cooperative relationships. Collectively, these results suggest that male mantled howlers show considerable flexibility in their social relationships that are likely dependent on a complexity of ecological, social, and demographic factors

A grounded theory study of the re-entry process of teen parents' return to school after dropping out by Brenda L Melton( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Without the rich stories of the experiences of teen parents who drop out of school and then re-enter, we do not have a total picture of the dropout phenomenon and how best to address the issues for this marginalized group. Using the research strategies of Charmaz' social constructivist grounded theory, Melton has gathered detailed stories about overcoming obstacles, connecting with others, and finding resources to complete their high school education. The pivotal role of school counselors as advocates becomes even more imperative to support teen parents in completing their education. Hopefully, this research has added depth to the understanding of what works, what is needed, and what interventions are most effective with teen parents. By using the Relational-Cultural Theoretical lens, Melton has developed the Model of Relational Resilience and Marginalization of Teen Parents who Re-enter High School after Dropping Out to better understand of the experiences of teen parents by defining their needs, exploring their resiliency, and highlighting the importance of protective factors and relationships in returning students to school
Career paths of Latina high school assistant principals : perceived barriers and support systems by Marco Alfonso Reyes( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Latina principals and assistant principals at the high school level have been overlooked in academic research. A review of literature is explored indicating how Latina, public high school assistant principals and principals are disproportionately underrepresented and face the double challenge of being a gender and an ethnic minority in the field of educational leadership. A qualitative study was conducted that begins with a statement of the problem, review of literature, and continues with a description of the research design, data collection, analysis of the data, discussion of findings, and concludes with the researcher's challenges. Phenomenology was the research methodology used to study four Latina assistant principals' experiences and perceptions of barriers and support systems in relation to their career journey. Role congruity theory was used as a theoretical lens to explore the prejudices, discrimination, and career path barriers that female leaders encounter. Findings revealed that the four participants interviewed had similar experiences and perceptions concerning four main themes of motivation, challenges, support systems, and cultural identification; subthemes were also explored. Discussed is a new conceptual model which outlines the career stages of the participants. Overall, the narrative data from the participants, the coded themes and subthemes, and the new conceptual model highlight that there are various barriers and support systems that impact Latina high school assistant principals' career path experiences. Specifically, the challenges identified are institutional challenges in the form of poor educational leadership, prejudicial hiring practices, and internal challenges in the form of conflicts about family verses job obligations

Nature of anger in the workplace : exploration of relevant variables and their structure by Alexander James Fields( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the workplace, counter productive work behaviors (CWBs) are strongly discouraged. Vardi and Weitz (2004) concluded that counter productive work behaviors are a fairly common occurrence and cost businesses billions of dollars each year. Many of these CWBs are perpetrated by angry or disgruntled employees. When angry employees are identified they can be helped with coping strategies to productively manage their anger, as opposed to engaging in CWBs (Hargrave, Hiatt, Dannenbaum, & Shaffer, 2008). This paper seeks to better equip professionals and researchers with tools to identify these at risk employees. Specifically the Anger Parameters Scales (APS) and the Anger Expressions Scale (AES) have been examined in a workplace sample for the first time. Additionally this study has examined the use of more readily available demographic information to predict at risk persons. The expected factors of the measures in question did not emerge as predicted by the AES. The factor structure of the APS was partially validated as four of the five scales loaded well enough for further analysis. None of these scales could be captured by more available demographic variables. This study also gathered normative data on anger elicitors by means of coding narratives of participants who were asked to describe a typical anger provoking situation
Fostering the success of learners through support programs : student perceptions on the role of TRIO Student Support Services from the voices of active and non-active TRIO eligible participants by Amada Angela Garcia( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the experiences of first-generation, economically disadvantaged, and disabled students' utilization of TRIO Student Support Services and their perceptions related to factors associated with the services. The populace studied were Mexican-Americans, a subgroup of the Latin@ population as it is the fastest growing racial/ethnic minority group in the United States totaling approximately 12.5% of the nation and expected to almost double to 24% by 2050 (U.S. Census Bureau, 2000). Due to the abundance of Latin@s enrolling at community colleges (Fry, 2002; Tierney, 2005), it is important to do individualized studies on student experiences on their perspective of college interventions as a means to find ways to retain higher numbers of students, leading to higher graduation and transfer rates. Using a qualitative, multiple case study approach, the researcher explored a border, rural community college. Social capital was used as the theoretical framework. Six, Mexican-American students served as the participants. The data collection methods were through semi-structured interviews over the course of the summer semester of 2013 at a Hispanic-Serving institution. The expected results were that students' perceptions would validate the necessity for programs such as TRIO Student Support Services to serve as a tool for retention and completion at the two-year college or transferring to a university and completing
