Haitian Creole, Marc E. Prou Nov 2005

Haitian Creole, Marc E. Prou

Marc E. Prou

Haitian Creole, also known as Kreyòl, is a member of the French-based creole language groups with a considerable part of its lexicon coming directly from seventeenth century French. Its grammar differs from French, however, and reflects closely the West African languages, such as Ewe, Fon, Yoruba, and Ibo. Kreyòl is similar to the creoles spoken in the French overseas departments of Martinique and Guadeloupe, as well as in Dominica, Saint Lucia, and parts of Trinidad.

Making Value Visible: Excellence In Campus-Community Partnerships In The Arts, Humanities, And Design, Cynthia Koch Oct 2005

Making Value Visible: Excellence In Campus-Community Partnerships In The Arts, Humanities, And Design, Cynthia Koch

Imagining America

This study sets forth what practitioners themselves believe to be the characteristics of excellence in campus-community partnerships in the arts, humanities, and design. It presents the fruits of a research project of modest scale. But in so doing it reveals something large: a flourishing world of work populated by faculty artists and scholars; staff members of nonprofit organizations and public cultural institutions; and creative citizens working through robust networks. Attentive to the texture and tones of practioners' voices, the report responds to people who are clearly hungry to address questions about excellence.

Making Value Visible opens a window on the ...

Strategies For Advocacy In Higher Education, Marie Byrd-Blake, Linda Hampton Wesson Oct 2005

Strategies For Advocacy In Higher Education, Marie Byrd-Blake, Linda Hampton Wesson

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

The feminist phase theory (Tetreault, 1985) was used to examine the cultural patterns embedded in a department of a large, urban university, to classify how the faculty in the department perceived women, and to examine how our own behavior as two newly hired associate and assistant professors contributed or did not contribute to these patterns of behavior. Three years of field notes, anecdotal records, transcriptions of meetings, interviews, and student comments were categorized to develop experienced-derived strategies. These strategies encourage women in higher education to: (a) recognize their own enmeshment in patriarchal practices; (b) disrupt these practices through their own ...


Review Of 5 Leadership Essentials For Women: Developing Your Ability To Make Things Happen Compiler Lisa Clark, Clarissa M. Craig Oct 2005

Review Of 5 Leadership Essentials For Women: Developing Your Ability To Make Things Happen Compiler Lisa Clark, Clarissa M. Craig

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

Because much of the scholarship on leadership has been constructed using male norms (Nidiffer, 2001), there is added attraction when the essentials of successful leadership are targeted for women. 5 Leadership Essentials for Women: Developing Your Ability to Make Things Happen addresses five leadership skills that, according to the "compiler" [sic] Linda Clark, are designed with women's needs in mind. The leadership essentials explored are communication, relationship essentials, time management, group building, and conflict management.

Identity, Marilyn L. Grady, Barbara Lacost

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

For women who have been unrecognized for their work in education, being lost due to name changes, phone changes, and email changes does not seem to be very helpful to the cause of recognizing the work of the 51 %. We have had enough invisibility and enough flying around like ivory-billed woodpeckers.


First Things First: Writing Strategies, Marilyn L. Grady Oct 2005

First Things First: Writing Strategies, Marilyn L. Grady

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

There are some fundamental principles that relate to writing. For instance, you must sit down and begin. Writing is an illusive task. Procrastination and hesitation are poor companions to the work of the writer.


African American Female College And University Presidents: Career Path To The Presidency, Sandra Jackson, Sandra Harris Oct 2005

African American Female College And University Presidents: Career Path To The Presidency, Sandra Jackson, Sandra Harris

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

The purpose of this study was to investigate the career paths and educational preparation of African American female college presidents. Forty-three of the 59 college presidents responded to a Likert-type survey.

Women In History--Dr. Susan Laflesche Picotte: American Physician And Heroine, Bernita L. Krumm

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

Susan LaFlesche Picotte walked in two cultures and, by any measure, served as a model for both. She overcame incredible obstacles to become the first Native American woman doctor in the United States. Most estimates agree that in 25 years she treated every member of the Omaha tribe. She dedicated her life to the service of others; she is without a doubt the true American heroine. References

The purpose of this paper will be to outline the findings of the study in relation to the emergent issues for rural female administrators.


Women In Educational Leadership Finding Common Ground, Kathleen Murphey, Glenda Moss, Susan Hannah, Roberta Wiener Oct 2005

Women In Educational Leadership Finding Common Ground, Kathleen Murphey, Glenda Moss, Susan Hannah, Roberta Wiener

Journal of Women in Educational Leadership

The purpose of this research project was to engage in self-reflective analysis of leadership development as an ongoing process of social action towards democratizing education. Four White women connected by their work as educational leaders, teachers and administrators, engaged this topic by conducting a dialogical analysis of their experiences in leadership. They dialogued from what were technically different positions in the hierarchy at their University and implemented a research process to speak across or marginalize those technical differences to produce a text that explored the rich terrain of leading in which they shared experiences of growth, the conceptual frameworks that ...
