Centennial Founders Day Keynote Address: Refocusing Our Lens: The Founding Of Connecticut College In Historical Context, Linda Eisenmann '75

Centennial Speeches

The author writes that the founding of Connecticut College in 1911 deserves its own attention, and that as a historian of education, she could tell the story while setting it within a wider context of higher education. She takes us through the founding, adding a wide-angle perspective, and ends with a speculation on why this story seems so less present than it should be in the daily life of this campus. What does the Centennial mean for how Connecticut College understands its past and its present? What value is there in examining its history bit by bit over the course ...

The Moral Agency Of Family And Consumer Sciences Teacher Candidates: A Grounded Theory, Enas O. Sarour Jan 2007

The Moral Agency Of Family And Consumer Sciences Teacher Candidates: A Grounded Theory, Enas O. Sarour

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

If we are to agree that teaching is a moral endeavor, exploring the moral dimension of teacher candidates, as future moral agents, should be considered indispensable. Assessing someone's moral development based on the hypothetico-deductive method is valuable, yet learning how an individual views him/herself as a moral agent is also important.;This research describes family and consumer sciences teacher candidates' (FCSTCs') sense of their moral agency, that is their understanding of what is "good or bad" and "right or wrong." Based on FCSTCs' constructed meaning developed through semi-structured interviews, this research disclosed factors that shape FCSTCs' moral agency ...
