Rosario Ferré : a search for identity by Suzanne S Hintz( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Entire book will interest scholars and students of Ferré's writing, but Chapter 6, 'Ferré's Search for Identity in English Translation,' should also interest translators. Hintz compares Ferré's translations in The youngest doll (HLAS 54:5000) and Sweet diamond dust (HLAS 52:4993) with original works (Papeles de Pandora and Maldito amor, respectively), and shows that Ferré significantly altered her work, softening or even eliminating numerous explicitly erotic and anti-North American passages"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Memoir by Rosario Ferré( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Memoir is Rosario Ferré’s account of her life both as a writer and as a member of a family at the center of the economic and political history of Puerto Rico during the American Century, one hundred years of territorial “non-incorporation” into the United States. The autobiography tells the story of Ferré’s transformation from the daughter of a privileged family into a celebrated novelist, poet, and essayist concerned with the welfare of Puerto Ricans, and with the difficulties of being a woman in Puerto Rican society. It is a snapshot of twentieth-century Puerto Rico through the lens of a writer profoundly aware of her social position. It is a picture taken from the perspective of a keen observer of the local history of the island, and of the history of the United States. Included are many photographs that connect Ferré’s life with the story of her writing career."--Back cover

The New Faculty Orientation and Mentoring Program A Strategic Approach by Judy A Horton( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document describes a potential crisis at Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) due to the large numbers of faculty who are approaching or have already reached retirement age. NVCC is the third largest community college in the nation, made up of five campuses, soon to be six, and an Extended Learning Institute for distance learning. NVCC mirrors their diverse community with an equally diverse student, staff and faculty population. A study by the NVCC Office of Institutional Research found that a large number of the current staff are eligible to retire and many more are approaching eligibility. The Division Chairs Round Table (DCRT) met to discuss how to confront the potential crises of hiring as much as 50% of the division's instructional faculty at one time. The article reviews research on the successful nature of orientation and mentoring programs for faculty. It also describes a plan developed by the DCRT to create a New Faculty Orientation Task Force and the specifics of the task force including the members, the budget, the meeting schedule, and the proposed goals. Following this, the paper describes the development, implementation and the outcomes of the New Faculty Orientation and Mentoring Program. Includes a figure illustrating the phases of the NVCC New Faculty Orientation and Mentoring Program. (JS)
Adjunct Faculty Orientation and Mentoring Developing and Retaining the Best! by Barbara C Howard( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the development, format, and content of a new faculty orientation and mentoring program. The orientation program targets immediate information concerning employment and getting started in the classroom, while the mentoring program provides peer support for the duration of the employee's first years of service. The initiative is divided into three stages: (1) the initiation phase in which the orientation takes place; (2) the cultivation phase in which proteges become more involved in college activities; and (3) the redefinition phase when proteges become more self-sufficient and self-confident in their instructional role. Institutional outcomes associated with the mentoring program include a sense of being valued, feeling more productive, and having greater job satisfaction. Group outcomes include tranquility among instructors and greater collaboration within the discipline, within the division, across disciplines, and across the college. Outcomes for the institution include retaining new faculty longer, collegial networking, professional growth, and increased institutional effectiveness. This document also provides information concerning the format and content of a separate adjunct orientation and mentoring program. The paper's recommendations for smooth program operation include the early identification of participants (both mentors and proteges) and the development of a concise orientation program format. (RC)
Real Problems and Real Solutions: A Humanities/oreign Language Component in Occupational/echnical Curricula by Suzanne S Hintz( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From 1980 to 1990, the number of native Spanish speakers in the service region of Virginia's Germanna Community College (gcc) increased significantly. In response, gcc implemented a Spanish language occupational/technical curricula for law enforcement personnel and health professionals. Classes focused on the development of highly effective listening skills, with secondary importance placed on speaking skills. In addition, flexible course schedules were implemented to accommodate the medical and law enforcement rotating shift schedules. To target listening as the primary skill, a video-based instructional program with written materials was implemented and presented in a distance learning telecourse format to permit flexibility. In the program's first semester, 45 students enrolled, with 20% of these completing the 2-semester program. For 7 students who finished the sequence and took a voluntary placement test, 86% performed at the same level as peers in traditional classroom-based courses. Gcc is planning an English language telecourse on Latin American Studies with an emphasis on Latino social, political, religious, economic, and cultural problems in the late 20th century. The courses also meet new state requirements that all technical degree programs include a humanities requirement. (Tgi)
