Each one of the articles cited in this study, whether the mentoring program took place in Macedonia, Pakistan, Israel, or the United States of America, agreed that the mentoring of novice teachers contributes to professional development ...


Rape Culture.Docx, Lynell Hodge 2019 University of Central Florida

Rape Culture.Docx, Lynell Hodge

Lynell Hodge, EdD

Rape culture is a highly contested topic often framed by sexual assault as a central focus. As result, when feminists and social justice activists attempt to have a more expansive conversation to include coercive relationships or street harassment it isn’t always received well. In some cases the conversation is labeled as divisive. Having a rape culture discussion can be already contentious, there is also a subgroup of women who lean anti-rape culture rhetoric. Rape culture requires an understanding of the normalization of violence due to the pervasiveness of sexism. As a result, exploring why women deny rape culture’s ...


Successful Instructional Reading Practices For African American Male Third-Grade Students, Kimberly D. Whaley, Steve Wells, Nancy Williams 2019 Walden University

Successful Instructional Reading Practices For African American Male Third-Grade Students, Kimberly D. Whaley, Steve Wells, Nancy Williams

Journal of Educational Research and Practice

African American male third graders in U.S Title I schools frequently fail to read on grade level. However, in three Title I schools in East Texas, this demographic demonstrated exceptionally high reading ability. This explanatory case study investigated the instructional strategies and practices linked to high reading achievement for these students. The study is grounded in Ladson-Billings’s theory of culturally relevant pedagogy and supported by Vygotsky’s theory of social and cognitive constructivism. The research questions were used to examine the instructional strategies and practices used on each campus that may have resulted in such high reading achievement ...

Leading Organizational Change: A Qualitative Examination Of Experiences Of Traditional Public School Principals, Nikeshia Leatherwood 2019 Southeastern University - Lakeland

Leading Organizational Change: A Qualitative Examination Of Experiences Of Traditional Public School Principals, Nikeshia Leatherwood

Doctor of Education (Ed.D)

The Every Student Succeeds Act has set the course for new accountability measures for school and system leaders. How principals lead organizational change might be key to the success their schools experience and the achievement results of their students. This phenomenological study examined the professional experiences, leadership trainings, and strategic initiatives of traditional public school principals who led organizational change efforts that resulted in two academic rating increases within a three-year period. Five principals, representing elementary and high school, were interviewed to collect data on their experiences of leading successful organizational change. Using Moustakas’ (1994) phenomenological method, rigor was established ...


An Examination Of The Relationship Between Academic Entitlement And Education Financing Among Undergraduate Students, Nicola Ifill-Fraser 2019 Liberty University

An Examination Of The Relationship Between Academic Entitlement And Education Financing Among Undergraduate Students, Nicola Ifill-Fraser

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

Academic entitlement among students is a growing problem and concern for universities. Students with a sense of entitlement towards their education believe that positive academic outcomes are owed to them and should be awarded, not based on mastery of educational content, but on non-academic aspects of education, such as attending class, participating in class, or paying tuition fees. Additionally, academically entitled students have unrealistic expectations about the role of instructors and demanding attitudes and behaviors toward faculty. The factors precipitating these actions and behaviors appear to be multi-facted and remain unclear. To add to the growing body of literature on ...

05. Transactional Leadership, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

CORE

Transactional Leadership was first defined by Max Weber in 1947 as, “the exercise of control on the basis of knowledge.” The transactional leadership style was used extensively after World War II in the United States when the government was concentrated on rebuilding and needed a high level of structure to maintain stability. Twelve years later, social psychologists John French and Bertram defined the five bases of power, later revising them in 1965 to add a sixth power. In 1978, James McGregor was the most prominent author to argue that transactional leaders needed to be of high moral standing and act ...


03. Style Approach, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy 2019 Illinois Math and Science Academy

03. Style Approach, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

CORE

Research regarding the Style Approach Theory is thought to have begun around the 1940s at Ohio State University and the University of Michigan that served to determine the most significant behaviors exhibited by leaders. One of the first identifications of the theory was that leadership is divided into task and relationship behaviors, which serves as the basis of the division between the two aspects of the theory. Later, in the 1960s, further studies were conducted by the pair Blake and Mouton that explored how managers used task vs. relationship behaviors in an organizational setting. Following this era, the Leadership (Managerial ...

06. Servant Leadership & Path-Goal Theory, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

CORE

The term “servant leader” was first documented by Robert K. Greenleaf in 1970, who credits the formulation of the term to the 1956 novel The Journey to the East (Northouse 226) . Right at the tail end of WWII, the 1950s made way for the Civil Rights Movement. For context, this time period brought about the invention of TV and widespread use of cars in America, the Korean War, and the Cold War. Throughout the Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King’s success as one major face of the movement became accredited to his devotion to servant leadership that became a ...


08. Leader-Member Exchange Theory, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy 2019 Illinois Math and Science Academy

08. Leader-Member Exchange Theory, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

CORE

Leader-Member Exchange Theory became the focus of research in the late 1970s. Before the LMX theory, researchers thought of leadership as a process with consistent relationships between a leader and every follower. LMX changed that idea by theorizing that a leader has different relationships with each of their followers. Early research focused on the formation of in-groups and out-groups while later research shifted the focus to how LMX changed organizational effectiveness.


06. Contingency Theory & Situational Leadership, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy 2019 Illinois Math and Science Academy

06. Contingency Theory & Situational Leadership, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

CORE

Contingency Theory was developed in 1958, which paved the way for further contingency theories and models such as Situational Leadership. The Contingency Theory was first developed by Fred Fiedler in a research study analyzing the effectiveness of leaders in the military. Contingency Theory supposed that the success of leaders was dependent upon their control of the situation. As leadership studies progressed, the Situational Approach to leadership slowly developed in the late 1960s off the basis of the Contingency Theory. In 1969, psychologists Blanchard and Hersey published their book, “Management of Organizational Behavior”, in which they described the Life Cycle Theory ...

09. Tragedy And Leadership, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

CORE

When tragedy strikes, leaders must rise to meet the challenge. In recent years, the increasing threat of terrorism, natural disasters, and social challenges has furthered the development of new leadership theories. As people seek hope and security among turbulent times, the strength of a leader is often determined by the followers’ perception of their identity. Furthermore, cultural and technological advancements have enabled the rapid dissemination of information, thereby expanding the capability of leaders and social groups to spread their ideologies.

02. Great Man Theory, Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy 2019 Illinois Math and Science Academy

02. Great Man Theory, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

CORE

The Great Man Theory of leadership is centered around the ideas of prominent historians of the 19th century. The literature of the century, including Frederick Adam Woods’s book T he Influence of Monarchs: Steps in a New Science of History and many like it, analyze the influence of major rulers primarily in the Western world. The Great Man Theory thrives on the notion that most of history can be explained by the influence of male leadership figures. These men often appeared to rise to power out of nowhere and lead their people to success, and their “greatness” was often ...

07. Transformational Leadership, Illinois Mathematics And Science Academy

CORE

The term transformational leadership was first introduced by James V. Downton in 1973, and has been the focus of researchers since the early 1980s (Northouse 161). After years of success and prosperity, the United States economy crashed into what is now known as the recession. The president at that time, Ronald Reagan, put forth many changes, such as cutting taxes and building up the military to help the country recover. During this time, the US imported more goods than it exported, therefore endangering manufacturing sector. Through such abysmal times, it was important for President Reagan and his government to motivate ...

Cross-Cultural Considerations: Raising Language Teachers Awareness About The Importance Of Multiculturalism, Abir El Shaban

Journal of Research Initiatives

Abstract

With the worldwide use of English as a second language (ESL) and globalization, teachers are expected to understand, acknowledge and interact with culturally and linguistically diverse students and integrate their linguistic and multicultural backgrounds in classroom settings. Teachers need to be multicultural to be able to successfully impact their students to be multicultural. This paper provides English language teachers with valuable recommendations based on cross-cultural studies and my experience, as an ESL teacher, on how to be responsive to students from different cultures to empower and enhance their language proficiency skills.
