Inside The Black Box Of Mentoring: African-American Adolescents, Youth Mentoring, And Stereotype Threat Conditions, David F. LaViscount 2019 The University of New Orleans

Inside The Black Box Of Mentoring: African-American Adolescents, Youth Mentoring, And Stereotype Threat Conditions, David F. Laviscount

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

Despite a narrowing trend over the past forty years, the racial academic performance gap between non-Asian-American minority students and European-American students remains an overarching issue in K-12 schooling according to the Stanford Center for Education Policy Analysis (2017). Du Bois’s (1903) theory of double consciousness is implicated in the performance gap phenomenon. Though not explicitly connected, Steele and Aronson’s 1995 study revealed stereotype threat (STT) to be an empirical explanation of the negative impact of double consciousness. Steele et al.’s study revealed a psycho-social contributor to the racial academic performance gap, STT. STT is characterized by performance ...


Maybe They Are Just Kinesthetic Learners? Student Walkouts And The Purposes Of Education, Michael Dieter, Tiffiny Haepp 2019 Lewis University

Maybe They Are Just Kinesthetic Learners? Student Walkouts And The Purposes Of Education, Michael Dieter, Tiffiny Haepp

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

Students have historically engaged in demonstrations, including walkouts, of schools for causes they are passionate about including the protest of federal immigration policy, teacher quality, civil rights, and most recently school violence. In this instances, students have decided that leaving the school, rather than remaining in it is more likely to bring about the social changes they desire. What does this say about how students value education as it has been presented in the United States? These acts of protest reflect the idea that perhaps students don’t see schools, as currently constructed, as part of the solution to societal ...


"Forget About Justice:" Survivance And Resistance In Teacher Education, Ramon Vasquez 2019 University of Dayton

"Forget About Justice:" Survivance And Resistance In Teacher Education, Ramon Vasquez

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

This Testimonio examines how systemic epistemic violence operates in teacher education. In this paper, systemic epistemic violence refers to the silencing of demands for justice voiced by faculty of color as well as the devaluing of counter-knowledges that draw on different epistemologies. This Testimonio highlights the way the “Othering” of faculty from racialized groups produces and protects systemic epistemic violence. “Othering” in this case does not simply refer to individual racial discrimination or oppression rooted in White fragility. Instead, it refers to the intrinsic indignities faculty of color, in this case a Chicano assistant professor, must endure when they resist ...

Promoting Resilience In Economically Disadvantaged Adolescents Through School-Based Expressive Arts Groups, Bailey Knox 2019 Lesley University

Promoting Resilience In Economically Disadvantaged Adolescents Through School-Based Expressive Arts Groups, Bailey Knox

Expressive Therapies Capstone Theses

Since 2013, the majority of students served by the public school system in the United States have been considered “low-income” by the federal government. The stressors associated with low socioeconomic status significantly increase risk for social, emotional and behavioral challenges at all age levels, but can be particularly damaging to adolescents coping with heightened stress levels related to the intense multi-dimensional changes that define this developmental period. As the correlation between economic disadvantage and negative socio-emotional and academic outcomes is increasingly evidenced, schools have begun to recognize their responsibility for providing preventative mental health care to high-risk students. Over the ...


Catholic Identity And The Vocation Of The Principal, Melissa Whelan 2019 Seton Hall University

Catholic Identity And The Vocation Of The Principal, Melissa Whelan

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

In order for Catholic schools to fulfill the mission as outlined by the Church, their identity must be strong. Catholic schools play an important role in the evangelizing mission of the Church and without a strong Catholic identity, they cannot meet that mission (Sacred Congregation for Catholic Education, 1998). It is important that the Catholic identity be a priority of those who teach and serve in Catholic schools. According to the NCEA annual statistical report, today only 2.6% of the full time equivalent professional staff in Catholic schools are religious compared to 48.4% in 1970 and 90.1 ...

High Costs To Peddling Solutions In Search Of Problems. A Book Review Of Selling School: The Marketing Of Public Education, T. Jameson Brewer 2019 University of North Georgia

High Costs To Peddling Solutions In Search Of Problems. A Book Review Of Selling School: The Marketing Of Public Education, T. Jameson Brewer

Democracy and Education

The unwavering commitment by reformers to privatize schools through educational marketplaces has fostered a rise in educational advertising necessitated by the competitive nature of commodification. Not only has this new form of "edvertising" fostered the creation of new jobs within the corporate cabal but it relies heavily on what are likely misleading claims of academic success and, additionally, raises serious questions about funds being diverted away from pedagogical practices in favor of glossy advertisements and videos. Selling School: The Marketing of Public Education by DiMartino and Jessen explores the ways in which edvertising within the educational landscape serves as a ...

Through the lens of Indigenous peoples, Chinese Americans, Japanese Americans, Mexican Americans, and African Americans, the field of curriculum history is enriched with discourses as to how communities of color ...

Adulting In The Age Of Neoliberalism Helping Students Explore Their Purpose Post-Graduation By Matthew Dalmeida.Docx, Matthew D'Almeida 2019 West Chester University of Pennsylvania

Adulting In The Age Of Neoliberalism Helping Students Explore Their Purpose Post-Graduation By Matthew Dalmeida.Docx, Matthew D'Almeida

Matthew D'Almeida

Ideally, higher education is a realm in which students can freely explore themselves and discover what it is they choose to focus on for the remainder of their lives. As such, higher education functions as a setting that not only promotes this but readily provides opportunities to confront and reevaluate one’s long held ideals. As students progress in their education they become closer to graduation and becoming a fully-realized member of society. This act of growing up is commonly referred to as “adulting,” a phenomenon in which individuals begin to take on the tasks associated with being an adult ...

Counseling governing bodies have defined what should be prioritized in multicultural counseling courses, including students’ multicultural knowledge and awareness; however, best practice regarding how to teach these multicultural concepts has largely been left up to the counselor educator.

The purpose of this study was to explore master’s-level counseling students’ experience of expressive arts techniques utilized during their multicultural counseling course. Ten student participants took ...
