Identification and Localization of Genes which Restore Senescence in Breast Cancer Cells( )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this project is to identify and map genes capable of restoring senescence to immortal breast cancer cells by functional complementation. The methods used to achieve this goal are cell X cell hybridizations and microcell fusions between the tumor and normal cells containing gpt tagged single normal human chromosomes. Cell X cell hybridizations between breast tumor cells and normal cell lines containing gpt tagged human chromosomes 2, 3, 6 and 9 resulted in senesced hybrid clones whereas hybrid clones containing human chromosome 4 did not senesce. Introduction of individual gpt tagged normal human chromosomes 6, 9 and 16, by using microcell mediated chromosome transfer technique, showed characteristic morphological and growth properties typical to senescence
Role of CDK4 in Breast Development and Cancer( )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cdk4 is an important regulator of GI/S cell cycle progression in mammalian cells. In humans the Cdk4 gene is amplified in 16% of sporadic breast tumors. In mice the loss of Cdk4 affects the development of the mammary glands. Our studies to determine the role of Cdk4 in Neu Wnt-1 and Ras-induced breast tumorigenesis indicated that the absence of Cdk4 impairs Neu and Ras-induced mammary tumorigenesis but not that induced by Wnt-1. Specifically while the tumor incidences in Cdk4-null MMTV-Ras and MMTV-Neu mice were dramatically reduced when compared to their respective wild-type transgenic counterparts (0% versus 70% and 14% versus 97% respectively) the loss of Cdk4 did not affect the tumor incidence in the MMTV-Wnt-1 mouse model. In addition to Cdk4 null models we also assessed the role of the Cdk4R24C mutation played in mammary tumorigenesis. Interestingly the onset of tumors is significantly delayed in MMTV-Ras transgenic mice that express the hyperactive Cdk4R24C mutated allele when compared to those mice that express wild-type Cdk4. Analysis of the tumors and normal tissues suggests that the Cdk4 gene may play a role in modulating oncogenic stress-induced DNA damage checkpoint responses

Effects of Anxiety on Concept Learning by Joel Meyers( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sixty-one introductory psychology students were randomly assigned to two experimental treatment which consisted of either high or low ego-involving instructions. The entire experimental procedure, including the administrations of Spielberger's Trait Anxiety Inventory and State Anxiety Inventory, is elaborated. Results support the notion that state anxiety, I.E., feelings of apprehension and heightened nervous system activity, provides a more useful estimate of the relationship between anxiety and learning than trait anxiety, I.E., anxiety proneness. Support is also added to the notion that task conditions affect anxiety, in this case a concept learning task. Advantages of the author's research design are highlighted. (Tl)
Decision Model for Vocational Education. Final Report by Louis T Harms( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report reviews activities of the first year's work of a project whose purpose was to provide information which will assist the Philadelphia School District in making plans for educational programs, staff, and facilities in response to impending changes in occupational job requirements in the Philadelphia area and changes in student needs and desires. Three major parts are included: (1) a study of future job requirements in the occupational structure of the Philadelphia area; (2) a study of students' needs, aspirations, and perceptions of the labor market based on a survey of eighth and ninth grade students from the Philadelphia School District; and (3) an integration of the first and second parts into a planning instrument, with the basic structure of a mathematical decision model reviewed and its role in educational management indicated. An appendix contains an alphabetical index of occupations and codes, Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts of labor requirements to 1985 by socioeconomic groups, forecasts of labor requirements to 1985 by Philadelphia school district clusters, and the survey questionnaire for eighth and ninth grade students.

Investigation of Verbal Responses of Children During Problem Solving Situations by Benson E Gever( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This investigation gives attention to the developmental course and influence of social class on self-directed, private speech. The Ss were 108 white, middle and lower class pre-school, first and third grade children. Two measures of receptive vocabulary were administered as background language measures. The experimental task required s to sort pictures of common objects into categories at three levels of task difficulty. The results indicated a rather marked decline in spontaneous verbalization from the pre-school to first grade levels with no significant change between the first and third grade levels. A parallel trend was found in the decreasing intensity level of the speech productions (I.E., a simultaneous decrease in overt vocalization and increase in silent lip-movement activity). These findings support Vygotsky's internalization hypothesis. A significant association was not found between the frequency of verbalization and problem solving performance, which casts doubt on the directive function of such verbal activity. Prominant social class differences in cognitive-linguistic abilities were also found. These differences may stem from the differential linguistic codes attributed to the middle and lower class patterns of verbal interaction. (Author/CJ)
What the Science Standards Say: Implications for Teacher Education. Publication Series No. 9 by Penny L Hammrich( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes the conception changes of teacher education candidates regarding science teaching and learning as they completed a k-8 science methods course designed to utilize the principles reflected in the national reform initiatives. The course familiarized teacher candidates with reform initiatives in science education, highlighting their role as change agents in the reform. The overall goal was addressed through four phases where students learned to apply the principles reflected in the national reform initiatives in designing, implementing, and evaluating curriculum, instruction, and assessment. The four phases included the following: (1) confronting and challenging teacher candidates' conceptions of science and science teaching, (2) applying the principles reflected in the national reform initiatives in developing science lessons, (3) evaluating science resources and instructional programs, and (4) sharing with teachers the process of reform. Interviews with 15 predominantly female teacher candidates collected demographic data and examined their conceptions of science, knowledge construction, and principles implied in the national reform initiatives. Data were analyzed by applying grounded theory. Results indicated that participants' conceptions of teaching sciences were guided by their conceptions of science. Participants understood the process of knowledge construction, but they interpreted their understanding differently. They viewed the principles reflected in the national reform initiatives as being beneficial but time consuming. (Contains 34 references.) (Sm)
An Evaluation of the Effects of an Enrichment Program on Six YearOld Children by Marciene S Mattleman( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was an experimental investigation of the effects of an enrichment program on a selected group of first graders. Its purpose was to determine whether children experiencing the experimental conditions showed greater growth in intelligence and achievement and greater use of functional language than a control group at the end of one school year. An additional objective was the analysis of oral language with reference to structural pattern, vocabulary, and fluency. The subjects were 141 first graders in two philadelphia schools, both of which were located in low socioeconomic areas. One-half of the children received a supplementary enrichment program and the remainder, at another school, served as a control. The independent variable was the multisensory compensatory education program to facilitate growth in concept development administered 2 hours weekly to the experimental group as a supplement to classroom instruction. The author concluded that the compensatory education treatment (1) did not produce greater growth in intelligence, word knowledge skills, or word discrimination skills, (2) did not affect use of functional language, and (3) did not produce a significant difference in arithmetic skills. In addition, it was concluded that reading ability was significantly affected by mental ability, treatment, and the interaction of these two variables. (Al)
Effects of Anxiety on Quantity of Examination Preparation by Roy Martin( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Undergraduates who were anticipating a one semester course final were used as subjects in this investigation of the relationship between pretest anxiety and the amount of preparation for the test. In addition, the authors examined the relationship between anxiety and performance and between quantity of preparation and performance. Both trait and state anxiety were measured during data collection. Findings reveal that: (1) anxiety associated with the examination was significantly positively related to out-of-class preparation; (2) quantity of study had a near zero relationship with performance on the examination; and (3) there is a negative relationship between state anxiety during the test preparation period and actual performance on the test. The authors conclude, with qualifications, that examinations geared toward stimulating out-of-class preparation could be omitted. It is suggested that educators reexamine their rationales for testing students. (Tl)
Counseling and Life-Coping Workshops for Unemployed Workers by Philadelphia, Pa Temple Univ.( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document consists of the final report and booklet developed by a project that provided individual counseling and life-coping skills workshops to recently unemployed workers lacking basic educational skills. The final report describes how individuals recruited at Philadelphia unemployment offices attended group workshop sessions where they received information on benefits available to unemployed persons, resume writing, and job search strategies. Workshop participants completed the Test of Basic Adult Education and attended two individual counseling sessions to discuss ways of coping with the problems resulting from their unemployment. Participants evaluating the program praised its information on available benefits, job interviews, and training programs and its individual counseling sessions. Sixteen of the 34 participants who were interviewed over the telephone indicated that they had found jobs by using approaches learned in the workshops. Appended to the final report are the following: workshop schedule, flyer, evaluation form, and materials explaining available benefits. Included in the resume writing/job search booklet are the following: tips for writing resumes and cover letters, sample resumes and cover letters, job search and interviewing techniques, salary negotiation guidelines, and a 14-item bibliography.

The Black Administrator in Higher Education Current Dilemmas, Problems and Opportunities by Bernard C Watson( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are several statements that may be made concerning the black administrator in higher education today: (1) the black administrator is important not only to black colleges but to white institutions as well, and his role will be especially critical in the next 10 years or so; (2) the supply of black administrators is extremely limited because of the historic lack of opportunity for both training and placement; and (3) the black administrator must possess skills to cope with not only the normal administrative duties assigned but also the special demands placed upon him by virtue of his blackness, particularly in predominantly white universities. From these assumptions several implications emerge: (1) it is imperative that a valid theoretical and practical approach for the training, education, and development of black administrators be conceptualized and implemented; (2) short- and long-range recruitment efforts to increase the supply of black administrators must be mobilized; and (3) training opportunities must be developed or revised that will help prepare young black men and women for the multiple roles that they will be called upon to play.

"An Experimental Field Study of the Impact of Nonverbal Communication of Affect on Children from Two Socio-Economic Backgrounds." by Ruth Middleman( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The differential effects of three values of the nonverbal component of communication on the productivity of inner-city and suburban fourth graders are explored. Eight categories of nonverbal behavior were selected, and an experimental teacher trained to employ them in the classroom, while at the same time enacting either a positive, negative or neutral affect style. Three tasks were utilized: (1) accuracy in following directions; (2) accuracy in hearing and extracting information from a verbal context; and (3) amount of words produced in a required essay. Results show that: (1) the middle and lower-middle socio-economic children responded to all affect-styles with no apparent differences; and (2) the lower socio-economic class children responded differently from the other two on one of the tasks and under negative affect-style. A number of hypotheses based on the findings are generated. (Tl)
A Graduate Program for the Trainers of Teacher Trainers for Leadership Roles in Urban Education. an Overview by Philadelphia, Pa Temple Univ.( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the ultimate objective of creating conditions in inner-city schools that will enable children to learn, Temple University has begun a program to recruit and prepare doctoral candidates in English education, mathematics education, social studies education, and science education for leadership roles in urban education. The four components of the program are academic education, professional education, school and college internships, and community involvement, with emphasis on the latter two. The academic and professional education components are coordinated by a 20-member Metropolitan Advisory Committee composed of representatives from the public schools, the community, colleges within the university, state and community colleges, and high school students. The internship component includes teaching, classroom research, and student teacher supervision, first in the public schools and then at cooperating colleges. The community involvement component is to be elaborated by Black and Puerto Rican Community Program Planning groups to provide contacts in the homes, in the streets, in the churches, in recreation centers, and with landlords, police, and health agencies.

Reinforcer Effectiveness in Children as a Function of Stimulus Satiation by David John Massari( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One hundred twenty-eight preschool boys were subjects in a 4x2x2 factorial design to investigate the change in reinforcer efficacy as a function of prior stimulus exposure. The factors were: (1) amount of repetition, 5, 25, 45, or 65; (2) reinforcer, good or bell; and (3) satiator, good or bell. Two additional groups were run as control groups to determine the effectiveness of good and bell in the absence of satiation treatment. Following the experimental treatment, Ss were given 50 learning and 25 extinction trials on a fixed color-position discrimination learning task. Support for stimulus satiation and satiation generalization was found on both learning and extinction data. The obtained functional relationships were generally curvilinear. (Author)
Evaluating & Extending Learning Counseling. Final Report by David J Reynolds( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Learning Counseling, a special, small-group type of academically oriented counseling for underachieving high school students, counseled 819 students in the Pittsburgh Public schools during 1969-1971. Materials to train teachers to become Learning Counselors were developed: a manual, a series of video tapes, several casebooks, and 4 essays explaining the behavioral systems approach on which Learning Counseling is based. Two summer workshops were held to train 40 graduate students and teachers for extending Learning Counseling into higher education and teacher training. The data were subjected to an intensive analysis. The first analysis, concerning the Learning Behavior Inventory demonstrated a consistant agreement between students and teachers as to what overt and covert behaviors were shown by underachieving students. The 2nd analysis demonstrated highly significant changes in an increased students' positive attitude towards education, a reduced fear of tests and evaluation on the Fear Survey Inventory, and an increase in the desirable behaviors shown by good students. In summary, Learning Counseling Appears to be a popular counseling program for underachievers that produces documented affective and behavioral change. (Author)
Leadership behavior of department chairmen in selected state institutions of higher education by Glenn Burnett Schroeder( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Getzels and Guba social systems model was used to develop hypotheses for obtaining knowledge concerning: 1) "real" leadership behavior of department chairmen as described by themselves and faculty; 2) "ideal" leadership behavior of chairmen as described by themselves, deans, and faculty; and 3) responsibility, authority and delegation behaviors reported by deans and chairmen. Normative data about the selection, administrative role, tenure, leadership training, and experience of incumbent chairmen were also gathered. Respondents included 52 deans, 118 chairmen and 161 faculty at 17 state institutions. The instruments used were the Leadership Behavior Description Questionnaire, the Responsibility, Authority, and Delegation Scales, and introductory questions. Conclusions and recommendations are presented. (Af)
Barriers to employability of persons with handicaps : a bi-national study in the United States and Israel by Edward Newman( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study compared the barriers to employment facing handicapped persons in Israel and the United States. Five vocational rehabilitation centers (two in the United States and three in Israel) were examined. Each was studied in terms of the type of center, population served, goals, nature and scope of services provided, sources of income, staff and staffing patterns, organizational structure, architectural accessibility, geographical area served, local labor market conditions, and business and industrial bases in the area. Greater variation was found among the centers in each country than between the countries with respect to stated rehabilitation goals, nature and scope of services provided, and staff-to-client ratios. Centers were 100 percent government-supported in Israel but only 59-90 percent government-supported in the United States. A greater proportion of the clients served in the U.S. were mentally retarded, whereas the Israeli centers served a greater proportion of physically disabled clients. A pyramid structure was more evident in the U.S. centers as were unemployment problems in the areas surrounding the centers. Considerable differences in opinion concerning the most important outcomes of vocational rehabilitation were evident. The three most important outcomes identified in the United States were competitive employment, stable employment (sheltered or competitive), and increases in total income, whereas improved independent living, increased wages, and increased job satisfaction were the three most important outcomes identified in the Israeli centers.

Occupational Choices and Employment Opportunities for High School Students. (Decision Model for Vocational Education). Final Report by Louis T Harms( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study conducted to determine the occupational choices and employment opportunities for high school students was divided into two phases. The first phase consisted of an analysis of the availability of jobs in the Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) area. In the second phase of the study, a comparison was made of the aspirations of eleventh-grade students with employment opportunities for 1985. In the first year, a student needs questionnaire was administered to 1,070 eighth- and ninth-grade pupils from the Philadelphia school system. In the second year, the revised questionnaire was administered to 1,293 tenth- and eleventh-grade pupils from all but two of the Philadelphia public school system high schools. The comparison revealed that there is a disparity between the plans and the probable capabilities of these students. Forty-three percent of eleventh-grade students would like professional or technical careers, while only 15 percent of the jobs in 1985 will be in those occupations. Only 7 percent of the students aspire to employment as sales or service workers, and 20 percent of the jobs expected to be available in 1985 are of this type. (Author/BM)
Individual Differences in Open Education by Nettie R Bartel( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report provides an overview of the nature of the open classroom in terms of implications for special education, describes an ongoing research project on the open classroom, and presents data on one phase of the project. Considered in the overview of the open classroom are the teacher role in the learning process, the role of individual differences, and the role of individualized instruction. It is thought that the handicapped child may show more creative behavior and may become increasingly more self-regulative and internally controlled in the open classroom than in the traditional rigid classroom. The project described involves examination of six open classrooms in a neighborhood of Philadelphia. The classrooms are all located in an inner city neighborhood. Children were observed for about 5 hours; their activities and duration of activities were recorded. It was found that a major portion of each hour in the open classroom is spent in peer interaction. Successful children were found to spend almost one-sixth of their time participating in academically-related activities and conversations with their peers. Least successful children were found to spend less than 2 minutes per hour engaged in academically-related activities. (Cb)
