A comparison of introductory science textbooks : a sampling and content analysis of non-discipline-specific scientific concepts by Salvador Macias( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For our study, we sampled college introductory science textbooks and performed a content analysis of the subject matter. We were interested in students' opportunities to acquire non-discipline-specific scientific literacy. The more commonly known science literacy is familiarity with discipline-specific knowledge such as Einstein's theory of relativity, Darwin's theory of natural selection, Pavlov's experiments with classical conditioning, some basic facts of the periodic table, and so on. However, scientific literacy is the understanding of basic concepts and process common to all sciences, regardless of discipline. For example, (a) knowing what scientific theories, laws, hypotheses, and data are; (b) understanding the importance of falsifiability, appropriate controls, and variation; and (c) recognizing the differences between scientific and anecdotal evidence. It occurred to us that introductory science courses are the first opportunity for most college students to learn such concepts. For non-science majors, these are probably the only opportunity. We chose a sample of 10 introductory college-level science textbooks in each of the following disciplines: biology, chemistry, physics, and psychology. Our content analysis required the creation of a key word list relevant to non-discipline-specific scientific literacy. Using this list, our analysis generated a count of how many pages each textbook dedicated to presenting and defining these scientific concepts. The results showed a significant difference with psychology having by far the strongest commitment to scientific literacy: Psychology 20.7 pages, Biology 6.9 pages, Physics 1.6 pages, and Chemistry, 1.4 pages (F(3, 36) = 35.87, p < .001)

La musica y el cine durante la Movida madrilena como un movimiento politico y cultural by Salvador Macias( )

1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The research I have done for this thesis is about the songs and movies that were created during la Movida madrilena during the decades of the seventies and eighties, and how this art served as an influence for those Spaniards who wanted to live with more freedom. In this thesis I analyze lyrics, as well as movies from the most predominant artist of that time; artists such as Alaska, Miguel Bose, Nacha Pop, Hombres G, Mecano, or the great film maker Pedro Almodovar, amongst other ones, are the ones in which I focused my research. Seeing these arts up close and what happened during its time, I have come to the conclusion that the art which came to be during la Movida, served as a political and cultural movement for the generation of those two decades, as well as for the coming generations
