Promoting Student Success: Bilingual Education Best Practices And Research Flaws, Lillian Fassero Dec 2017

Promoting Student Success: Bilingual Education Best Practices And Research Flaws, Lillian Fassero

Senior Honors Theses

This paper first determines the benefits which bilingual education offers and then compares transitional, dual-language, and heritage language maintenance programs. After exploring the outcomes, contexts, and practical implications of the various bilingual programs, this paper explores the oversight in most bilingual studies, which assess students’ syntax and semantics while neglecting their understanding of pragmatics and discourse structures (Maxwell-Reid, 2011). Incorporating information from recent studies which question traditional understandings of bilingualism and argue that biliteracy requires more than grammatical and vocabulary instruction, this paper proposes modifications in current research strategies and suggests best practices for transitional, dual-language, and heritage maintenance programs.

Wir haben uns relativ spät kennen gelernt, erst im Jahre 2000, was ich immer bereut habe. Natürlich wusste ich davor von Egon Schwarz – wie hätte das in den Achtzigerjahren als Graduate Student der Germanistik an der University of Illinois auch anders sein können? Ich las seine literaturwissenschaftlichen Ausführungen etwa zu Hesse, Rilke, Thomas Mann, Schnitzler oder allgemeiner zur Exilliteratur und dachte mir, so möchte ich eines Tages schreiben können: nicht verschroben esoterisch übertheoretisierend, sondern elegant, verständlich und einleuchtend eingebettet in einen sozio-historischen Kontext. Ob ich das je geschafft habe, weiß ich nicht, aber ich weiß auf alle Fälle, dass Egons ...


A Short Letter By Humboldt To Jefferson, Reinhard Andress Nov 2017

A Short Letter By Humboldt To Jefferson, Reinhard Andress

Reinhard Andress

At the tail end of his monumental trip of exploration and scientific discovery through Latin America from 1799 to 1804, the German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt visited President Thomas Jefferson in Washington. United by their common interests in the Enlightenment, they began a correspondence that endured until 1825. This contribution discusses a letter of 1811 by Humboldt to the former president, hitherto unpublished in English. Aside from closing a gap in their correspondence, the letter, although short, offers an illuminating insight into Humboldt’s personal, political, and scientific networks, which included such figures as Abbé José Correia da Serra and ...

Erste Briefe / First Letters Aus Dem Exil 1945-1950. (Un)Mögliche Gespräche. Fallbeispiele Des Literarischen Und Künstlerischen Exils, Reinhard Andress

Reinhard Andress

Zunächst eine Begriffsklärung durch die Herausgeber: „Als Erste Briefe werden hier jene Korrespondenzen verstanden und in den Blick genommen, die ab 1945–1946 zwischen Exilanten und im nationalsozialistischen Deutschland bzw. Österreich verbliebenen Freunden oder Kollegen und Kolleginnen die Wiederaufnahme eines Gesprächs markieren“ (9). Dabei geht die Forschung diesbezüglich auf David Kettler zurück, der sich schon seit Jahren mit Grundfragen des Exils aus interdisziplinärer und interkultureller Sicht beschäftigt. Im vorliegenden Band werden die ersten Briefe von solchen schreibenden Exilanten wie Hermann Kesten, Oskar Maria Graf, Thomas Mann, Anna Seghers, Karl Otten, Friedrich Torberg, Robert Neumann, Johannes R. Becher, Annemarie Selinko, Heinrich ...

Cross-Language Community Engagement: Assessing The Strengths Of Heritage Learners, Elise Dubord, Elizabeth Kimball Sep 2017

Cross-Language Community Engagement: Assessing The Strengths Of Heritage Learners, Elise Dubord, Elizabeth Kimball

Elise DuBord

This article reports on university students’ learning outcomes stemming from their work as language partners in a community-based learning project in an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) class with adult Spanish-speaking immigrants. We present a rubric designed to assess student learning in the collaborative, cross-language nature of the partnership that moves beyond notions of language acquisition. The rubric was used to score the reflective writing of students in two university classes who participated in this off-campus partnership, one in Spanish for majors, and one in English for general education students. Our analysis focuses on correlations between students’ language ...


Breaking The Cycle Of Silence : The Significance Of Anya Seton's Historical Fiction., Lindsey Marie Okoroafo (Jesnek) May 2017

Breaking The Cycle Of Silence : The Significance Of Anya Seton's Historical Fiction., Lindsey Marie Okoroafo (Jesnek)

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation examines the feminist significance of Anya Seton’s historical novels, My Theodosia (1941), Katherine (1954), and The Winthrop Woman (1958). The two main goals of this project are to 1.) identify and explain the reasons why Seton’s historical novels have not received the scholarly attention they are due, and 2.) to call attention to the ways in which My Theodosia, Katherine, and The Winthrop Woman offer important feminist interventions to patriarchal social order. Ultimately, I argue that My Theodosia, Katherine, and The Winthrop Woman deserve more scholarly attention because they are significant contributions to women’s literature ...

El Tirano Indigente: Pedro Páramo, Deuda Y Necropolítica, Alberto Ribas-Casasayas Apr 2017

El Tirano Indigente: Pedro Páramo, Deuda Y Necropolítica, Alberto Ribas-Casasayas

Modern Languages & Literature

This article studies the connections between conditions of tyrannical control in Juan Rulfo’s novel Pedro Páramo and forms of violence and government in the contemporary world. It discusses debt and violence, two essential elements in the plot of Pedro Páramo, from the perspective of the so-called drug war, as well as critical discussions of debt that have emerged in the context of recent financial crises (Graeber, Lazzarato, Varoufakis).

Pedro Páramo’s tyranny is built on the implementation of two powers that feed on each other: necropolitical power and control through debt. Necropolitical power (Mbembé) involves the administration of and ...
