Youth In Australia - Policy, Administration And Politics, Terry Irving, David Maunders, Geoff Sherington Jan 2014

Youth In Australia - Policy, Administration And Politics, Terry Irving, David Maunders, Geoff Sherington

Terence H Irving, Dr (Terry)

This book describes and analyses the development of youth policy in Australia since the end of World War II. Three eras are distinguished in terms of how society constructed youth as a problem: as juvenile delinquency (to 1960); as a generation gap (to the mid-1970s); and most recently as a wasted resource (1975-1990). In each period chapters cover: the social and demographic context and images of young people; policy development; bureaucratic structures; and the politics of youth and youth policy.


A Cognitively-Oriented Approach To Task Analysis And Test Development, David A. Dubois, Valerie L. Shalin, Keith R. Levi, Walter C. Borman Dec 1995

A Cognitively-Oriented Approach To Task Analysis And Test Development, David A. Dubois, Valerie L. Shalin, Keith R. Levi, Walter C. Borman

Psychology Faculty Publications

Clear descriptions of job expertise are required to support applications and improvements in personnel training and job performance. This report describes a practical approach to task analysis that integrates the issues, content, and methods of cognitive science and personnel psychology. Cognitively oriented task analysis employs a breadth, then depth, strategy for identifying job expertise. Starting with a task-by-knowledge framework, job expertise is successively elaborated using interviews, expert ratings, and protocol analyses. The application of task analysis results to the development of written performance measures is described to illustrate the contributions of this approach to measurement validity. Task analysis results show ...


Regaining Our Youth, Empowering Our Communities: Service Learning And Community Development, Glenn D. Israel, Thomas W. Ilvento Dec 1995

Regaining Our Youth, Empowering Our Communities: Service Learning And Community Development, Glenn D. Israel, Thomas W. Ilvento

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This paper describes a development process which builds upon the strengths of community service learning and community development by providing teenagers a chance to get involved in the community while providing a valuable service leading to local action. The strategy focuses on building partnerships among students, teachers, and local leaders to learn about community leadership, conduct a community needs assessment survey, and address a local need through a community development process. Experience from projects in Florida and Kentucky suggests that this strategy can help youth get involved in the community while providing a sounder basis for the community to act ...

A Comparison Of The Views Of Farmers And The Nonfarm Public Regarding Resource Use: The Case Of Texas Groundwater, Don E. Albrecht

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This paper provides a comparison of the views of farmers and the nonfarm public about the use of a water resource that is critical to both. Specifically, this paper presents the results of surveys of a farm and a nonfarm sample about the uses of water from the Edwards Aquifer in South Central Texas.

Dimensions Of Farm Commodity Production: Horses, Strawberries, And Why, Ronald C. Wimberley, Robert M. Moxley Dec 1995

Dimensions Of Farm Commodity Production: Horses, Strawberries, And Why, Ronald C. Wimberley, Robert M. Moxley

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

To better understand the social context of food and fiber production, more and more researchers are beginning to study the production of agricultural commodities as independent, dependent, and intervening variables. Typically, these commodity variables are measured in terms of separate crop or livestock products or by ad hoc indexes that summarize several commodities. To assess and better understand the spectrum of farm commodities examined in such research, this study uses North Carolina data from the U.S. Census of Agriculture to factor analyze various indicators of crop and livestock production and to determine any underlying, empirical dimensions. Explanations of the ...


Tourism As A Sustainable Rural Development Strategy: Building Consensus In Resident Attitudes, Paul B. Siegel, Paul M. Jakus Dec 1995

Tourism As A Sustainable Rural Development Strategy: Building Consensus In Resident Attitudes, Paul B. Siegel, Paul M. Jakus

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

A survey of community leaders, broadly categorized as business people, public officials, and conservationists, was conducted to assess attitudes toward tourism in a six-county region of the Southern Appalachian Highlands of Tennessee and North Carolina. Broad support for tourism development was found across all groups, with the caveat that economic growth not take place at the expense of community character or environmental quality. In general, however, members of conservation organizations were more concerned about the negative impacts of tourism development than were business people or public officials. The methodology employed highlights issues of agreement and conflict among influential community groups ...


Regional Differences In Financial Resources, Assets, And Savings Behavior Of Low-Income Families, Joan Koonce Lewis Dec 1995

Regional Differences In Financial Resources, Assets, And Savings Behavior Of Low-Income Families, Joan Koonce Lewis

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This study examined differences in financial resources, assets, savings attitudes, methods of saving, and demographic characteristics of low-income families from different regions in the United States. Further, the effects of these variables on nominal and real savings for families in each region were analyzed. Chi-square results indicated that families from the South were less likely to have private or employer-sponsored health insurance and VA medical benefits. Families from the South were also less likely to own assets and save; however, more southern families than nonsouthem families said they would increase savings if interest rates increased. Regression results indicated that nonsouthern ...
