Let us sit down at this big table by the reading lamp and look over these books, one by one. We shall find many kinds, from cook books and care of children all the way up to essays and poetry.


Dress Making Made Easier, Florence Ritchie 2017 Iowa State College

Dress Making Made Easier, Florence Ritchie

The Iowa Homemaker

"I never make my own clothes because its so hard to do the fitting when I'm alone," is the complaint of many a capable dressmaker, who buys clothes that never exactly suit her, because she finds it impossible to place seam lines, make alterations, fix the hem and do a dozen other things that must be done in the fitting of a dress.


The Housewife And Her Working Clothes, Margaret Kingery 2017 Iowa State College

The Housewife And Her Working Clothes, Margaret Kingery

The Iowa Homemaker

Perhaps there is no surer sign of a woman's sense of the beautiful than her own costume when at work in her home. It is surprising how many women can plan and furnish a very artistic and individual house and yet, herself, be a most inharmonious and jarring note in the whole color scheme. This is something that the average woman either never thinks of or simply doesn't care about, yet she will spend a great deal of time and expense planning or selecting her street clothes and her afternoon and evening gowns.


Playing The Game Of Health, Elizabeth Storm 2017 Iowa State College

Playing The Game Of Health, Elizabeth Storm

The Iowa Homemaker

Do you know Cho-Cho? You never have seen him? Cho-Cho is the funniest man you ever met. He is just like a clown at the circus only you get to know him very much better and he introduces you to his best friends. You will be glad to meet Sammy Spinach, Tom Turnip and Charlie Carrot and there are Rosie Apple, Mr. Whole-Wheat Bread and Cow-in-the-Meadow, too, who tell the boys how to be the strongest boys in the neighborhood and if the girls take his advice they will turn into the prettiest, liveliest girls in their neighborhood.

This article describes the ISU 4U Promise, an innovative college access and affordability initiative. Through this early-commitment partnership program between Iowa State University and Des Moines Public Schools, youth from two urban elementary schools are eligible for tuition awards when they enroll as undergraduates at Iowa State University. Drawing on a review of promise programs in the educational scholarly literature, this article identifies what makes the ISU 4U Promise distinctive among promise efforts in terms of contextual antecedents, implementation processes, and potential institutional outcomes. Unique features include its early childhood focus; sole university sponsorship; “wide-net” reach; and collaborative, critical orientation ...


Intergenerational Relationships Of Korean Older Adults And Implications For Their Health And Well-Being: Co-Residence And Grandchild Care, Jaeeon Yoo 2017 Iowa State University

Intergenerational Relationships Of Korean Older Adults And Implications For Their Health And Well-Being: Co-Residence And Grandchild Care, Jaeeon Yoo

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation examines inter-generational families in the contemporary Korean cultural context and their connections with health and well-being. The dissertation is comprised of two studies. The first study investigates the changes in patriarchal kinship structure centered on the eldest son across periods and cohorts. The second study explores the association between caring for grandchildren and grandparents’ health over time.

Using the Korean Longitudinal Study of Aging (KLoSA), the first study compares parent-child co-residence in the Korean War after Liberation Day (KWALD) cohort born between 1945 and 1953 and the Korean Baby Boomer (KBB) cohort born between 1954 and 1962 at ...

Design-Led Innovation For Learning And Assessment In Food Education.Pdf, Angela Turner 2016 Southern Cross University

Design-Led Innovation For Learning And Assessment In Food Education.Pdf, Angela Turner

Dr Angela Turner

Directions for an innovation climate have been evident since 1996 when the Federal Government endorsed the Australian Science Technology and Engineering Council for its first comprehensive foresight review identifying essential priorities as a national interest in innovation capacity building Australia’s future generations. As the Australian economy continues to transition away from the mining boom and shifts focus to the agriculture sector in regional communities, the country’s future growth is dependent on fostering and promoting innovative ideas as a National Innovation & Science Agenda (Australian Government, 2016). Sustainable and effective learning of technological practice has important implications for innovation capacity ...

Into The Gap: A Mixed Methods Study Of Acculturation, Stress, And Refugee Family Functioning, Kieu Anh T. Do 2016 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Into The Gap: A Mixed Methods Study Of Acculturation, Stress, And Refugee Family Functioning, Kieu Anh T. Do

Public Access Theses and Dissertations from the College of Education and Human Sciences

Every day, new waves of refugees result from increasing social, political and environmental instabilities around the world. Numerous studies have detailed the various stressors and adjustment issues that refugees face when resettled in a new host society. The majority of these studies focus on individual-level variables and not on the family as a whole. Thus, more studies are needed to understand how refugee families adjust in the resettlement context in order to promote positive outcomes. Studies that have examined family-level functioning often focus on how acculturative differences increase stress in refugee families, contributing to higher levels of familial tension and ...


Color Me Calm: Adult Coloring And The University Library, Heidi Blackburn, Claire E. Chamley 2016 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Color Me Calm: Adult Coloring And The University Library, Heidi Blackburn, Claire E. Chamley

Nebraska Library Association Conferences

An activity often reserved for children, coloring books for adults rose from hipster trend to global phenomenon beginning in 2013. Adults flocked to the activity for a variety of reasons, including stress relief, socialization, a way to unplug from technology or even as a way to gain social status by appearing trendy. Participants reported enjoying the tactile, interactive nature of the books as a respite from constant screen time. Coloring books became big business for craft suppliers and bookstores by 2015. Coloring books shot to the top of the Best Sellers list on Amazon and were prominently displayed in book ...


Returns To Education For Women, Assortative Marriage Matching, And Home Production, Sunha MYONG 2016 Singapore Management University

Returns To Education For Women, Assortative Marriage Matching, And Home Production, Sunha Myong

Research Collection School Of Economics

I estimate returns to college education for women, accounting for how assortative marriage matching and the home production affect labor supply and fertility choice, based on the National Longitudinal Study of Youth 1979 and the NLSY79 Child/Young Adults 1986—2012. First, the gain from home production, as measured by the average educational outcome of children, explains more than 80% of the total return. The direct impact of women’s college education on children’s outcome is much larger than the indirect effect through the household income and time investment. Women’s college attainment rates would decrease by 8% without ...


Comprehensive Sexuality Education In Kentucky, Luciana D. Hockersmith 2016 University of Kentucky

Comprehensive Sexuality Education In Kentucky, Luciana D. Hockersmith

Theses and Dissertations--Community & Leadership Development

Discussions of sex education of any kind can be controversial in a given setting. Traditional approaches to sex education prompt debate regarding effectiveness. Key indicators central to the effectiveness of sex education continue to be rates of teen pregnancy and transmission of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). With discontentment surrounding the effectiveness of “traditional approaches,” a more wide-ranging method is worthy of being explored. The curriculum approach of Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) includes six key concepts, and subsequent sub-concepts, intended to provide a broad and even all-inclusive range of topics for a similarly broad and even all-inclusive range of ages of ...


Couples’ Financial Management And Marital Quality: A Phenomenological Inquiry, Emily Sorenson 2016 Iowa State University

Couples’ Financial Management And Marital Quality: A Phenomenological Inquiry, Emily Sorenson

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This study explores the link between couples’ financial management practices and their marital quality through qualitative inquiry. Six couples in their first marriage with at least one child age 18 or younger were interviewed to understand how their financial histories affect their current approach to financial management and how their financial management affects their relationships. Using Couples and Finances Theory as a conceptual framework, this phenomenological study investigates these linkages to offer implications for financial counselors and therapists. There was no one financial management technique that appeared to link consistently to quality of relationships. Rather, it appeared that underlying relationship ...

University Supervisors' Perspectives On The Student Teaching Timeframe, Sally E. ARNETT-HARTWICK, Sarah Bradshaw 2015 Illinois State University

University Supervisors' Perspectives On The Student Teaching Timeframe, Sally E. Arnett-Hartwick, Sarah Bradshaw

Online Journal for Workforce Education and Development

Structured Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this research study was to describe university supervisors’ perception of extending the student teaching time frame in a family and consumer sciences (FCS) teacher education program. Background: Recently, a Midwestern State University FCS teacher education program extended the length of student teaching from 10 to 16 weeks. To verify if the student teaching timeframe mattered in enhancing the development of FCS teacher candidates, this study sought the perspectives of university supervisors who worked in both timeframes. Method: Using a qualitative design, interviews were conducted with two FCS university supervisors who supervised student teachers in ...


Examining Social Desirability Bias In Measures Of Financial Behavior, Nicole L. Kelly 2015 Illinois State University

Examining Social Desirability Bias In Measures Of Financial Behavior, Nicole L. Kelly

Theses and Dissertations

Surveys that investigate the financial lives of consumers consist of direct questions about financial behavior, with college students being a heavily surveyed and convenient sample (Gutter 2013). However, the subjective nature of survey data is not bias-free, indicated by the presence of disparities between the respondents' reported and actual behavior. Due to the fact that many students begin to acquire loans, establish credit, and initiate saving behaviors in college, it is important that we have a complete understanding the financial behavior of college students.

The goal of this study was to investigate the role of socially desirable responding (SDR) in ...


Canning Jars And Patterns Of Canning Behavior: A Study Of Households On The Hector Backbone, New York. 1850-1940, Jayne Ann Michaels 2015 Western Michigan University

Canning Jars And Patterns Of Canning Behavior: A Study Of Households On The Hector Backbone, New York. 1850-1940, Jayne Ann Michaels

Master's Theses

Typically, late 19th or early 20th century domestic sites contain fragments of a common item: canning jars. Such is the case regarding 21 sites along the Hector Backbone in New York State. These sites, investigated by the Finger Lakes National Forest Farmstead Archaeology Project, produced a rich sample of over 250,000 artifacts and thousands related to canning.

The objective of this thesis is to explore the potential of these common artifacts to yield important information about these Backbone households. Specifically, my questions include: when did these households adopt canning and who were they?

The intentional decision to ...
