Teacher Learning Matters: The Interrelationship Between The Personal And Professional Lives Of Rural Teachers, Helen Ann Weadon Jul 2007

Teacher Learning Matters: The Interrelationship Between The Personal And Professional Lives Of Rural Teachers, Helen Ann Weadon

Theses

The aim of this thesis is to highlight the growing understanding that schools and all its members are continually learning. This has provided a new lens for educationists to view the professional and personal needs of teachers. Goodson (1996) refers to the fact that researchers have often omitted the 'lived voice' of the teacher in educational research. By this he means that the life stories and experiences of teachers, told by themselves, are ruled out as irrelevant data by many researchers. The early work of Hall and Morgan (as cited in Queensland Consortium for Professional Development in Education (1996)., and ...


The Development Of The Culturally Responsive Teaching Assessment Instrument, Janet L. Applin Jun 2007

The Development Of The Culturally Responsive Teaching Assessment Instrument, Janet L. Applin

Kentucky Teacher Educator

This article is concerned with developing an instrument to assess Culturally Responsive Teaching. A study was conducted to explore the process of developing a valid and reliable CRT Assessment Instrument. Teaching behaviors widely accepted to indicate culturally responsive teaching were operationalized and an observation instrument was developed to assess teachers' use of culturally responsive teaching in applied classroom settings. Teachers were observed using the instrument and it was evaluated for its reliability and validity. Results of the study indicated that the instrument was found to have acceptable inter-rater reliability for approximately half of the indicators. The results supported the content ...

A Student Teaching Manual For The Preservice Student Teacher, Alecia L. Rochelle Jun 2007

A Student Teaching Manual For The Preservice Student Teacher, Alecia L. Rochelle

All Graduate Projects

This project is designed to assist and support student teachers and first-year teachers who feel unprepared during their preservice training, and novice teachers who are teaching out of their certificated field. The review of related literature and personal research shows that there is an essential need for additional direction, encouragement, collaboration, and guidance among student and first year teachers. This project contains a student teaching manual designed for Parkside Elementary School that provides specific tips on how to be an effective student/first year teacher. The purpose of this project is to design a manual that would assist student and ...

Delgadina En La Frontera, Sara Soledad Garcia

Teacher Education

Es posible que "Delgadina", el romance popular español medieval más divulgado en los países de habla hispana, llegara a los terrenos fronterizos de lo que son ahora los Estados Unidos y los estados de Texas, Nuevo México y Arizona, con Ia expedición colonizadora de Juan de Oñate, Ia cual arribó al Río Grande en abril de 1598. Como corrido se divulgó mucho por esas tierras y por el Norte de México y ha seguido oyéndose y cantándose hasta Ia actualidad. En los años 30 y 40,la cantante de Texas, Lydia Mendoza conocida como "Ia flor de Texas", le dio ...

A New Abel Inversion By Means Of The Integrals Of An Input Function With Noise, Li Huang Jan 2007

A New Abel Inversion By Means Of The Integrals Of An Input Function With Noise, Li Huang

Li Huang

Abel’s integral equations arise inmany areas of natural science and engineering, particularly in plasma diagnostics. This paper proposes a new and effective approximation of the inversion of Abel transform. This algorithm can be simply implemented by symbolic computation, and moreover an nth-order approximation reduces to the exact solution when it is a polynomial in r2 of degree less than or equal to n. Approximate Abel inversion is expressed in terms of integrals of input measurement data; so the suggested approach is stable for experimental data with random noise. An error analysis of the approximation of Abel inversion is given ...

Peer Review Of Teaching Project: Overview Newsletter, Paul Savory, Amy M. Goodburn, Amy Nelson Burnett

Industrial and Management Systems Engineering -- Reports

The Peer Review of Teaching Project (PRTP) is a UNL campus program that supports teams of faculty in making visible the serious intellectual work of teaching. Begun in 1994, the project uses the same process one would use to explore a research question by having faculty inquire, analyze, and document their teaching practices and the resulting student learning and then make these results accessible for use, review, and assessment by one’s peers. The project consists of a first-year fellowship program and an advanced scholar program. Specific faculty outcomes from participating in the project include: (1) Reflecting upon, developing, and ...


Reconsidering Teacher Professional Development Through Constructivist Principles, Kathryn Kinnucan-Welsch Jan 2007

Reconsidering Teacher Professional Development Through Constructivist Principles, Kathryn Kinnucan-Welsch

Teacher Education Faculty Publications

Constructivism has been discussed from multiple perspectives, including philosophical, psychological, social, and educational. These perspectives, of course, overlap when we shape what we do in the day-to-day realities of teaching and learning. The perspective that I bring to this chapter describing the professional development of teachers is that constructivism is a theory of learning that suggests that individuals make meaning of the world through an ongoing interaction between what they already know and believe and what they experience. In other words, learners actively construct knowledge through interactions in the environment as individuals and as members of groups.

It is from ...

Technology Follows Technique: Refocusing The Observational Lens, Anton Brinckwirth, Elizabeth M. Kissling, Kathryn Murphy-Judy, Carlos Valencia

Latin American, Latino and Iberian Studies Faculty Publications

Digital video is being applied to teacher training, development, and evaluation. This chapter evokes theories and practices of performance observation and improvement. It demonstrates facilitative media used in the design and implementation of a current interinstitutional project by the authors. Simultaneously, the implications of teaching evaluation techniques caught in the lens of digital observation technologies lead to considerations of their personal and social impact on the field of world language teacher training and professional development in the 21st Century. A more communal and non-hierarchical approach, called peer coaching, is advanced with a value-added digital video and e-community twist.

Dear Author: Letters Of Hope, Joan Kaywell Dec 2006

Dear Author: Letters Of Hope, Joan Kaywell

Joan F. Kaywell Ph.D

The idea for this book came while attending the 1999 Assembly on Literature for Adolescents (ALAN) in Denver, Colorado. As president of ALAN that year, I had the privilege of planning the workshop and its theme, “Saving Our Students; Lives through Literature and Laughter.” Authors who wrote realistic fiction that addresses tough issues for teens shared their writing, their wisdom, their good intentions, and their laughter with us. I asked each of the authors if they had letters from teenagers that they couldn’t throw away because “it was a piece of a childs’ soul and a person can’t ...
