Predictors of organizational response to decline by Barbara Parker( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 1988 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Results of research on predictors of organizational responses to declining enrollments at 56 small to medium-sized colleges and universities are discussed. Decline was experienced from 1978-1979 to 1981-1982. Severity of decline was selected as an objective predictor of organizational response, while internal agreement on mission and attributions of cause, controllability, and stability of decline were selected as subjective predictors of response. Two types of responses were examined: those that emphasize efficiency (operating responses) and those that represent a change in product/market mix (strategic responses). Path analysis indicated that severity of decline was not directly related to the types of responses that the organizations take following a period of decline. Instead, agreement on mission had a direct negative effect on both operating and strategic types of responses, and this effect increased as the result of the mediating perceptual variables of control and stability. Perceived cause of decline and other perceptual variables were useful in predicting types of response. Comparing subject and objective predictors of responses to decline revealed that agreement on mission is a better predictor of response than is severity of decline. Implications for future research are offered. Five pages of references are included. (Sw)

Nonsexist curriculum development : theory into practice : the handbook of the Curriculum Design Project at the University of Colorado, Boulder by Barbara Parker( Book )

5 editions published between 1984 and 1989 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing the problems of access and time constraints, this curriculum guide describes a core undergraduate women's studies course in which college level students learn to research, prepare, and present nonsexist curriculum units for public school classrooms. The course was designed to: (1) compensate for the lack of information in the traditional curriculum about women in culture and society; (2) correct any sexism and misinformation generated by traditional disciplines; and (3) equip students to contribute new research and knowledge in the field of women's studies. Containing information on how to recruit both teachers and course participants, this document also includes instructional packets which focus on teaching units for elementary, middle, and junior/senior high school students. Tests utilized to evaluate course participants' sex biases, a course syllabus, and student assignments are included. Stressing the educational objectives of content, skills, and experience, the course lectures focus on: (1) assumptions about males and females, (2) the socialization process, (3) videotaping, (4) sources of information, (5) school socialization, (6) bias in language, and (7) sexism and other "Isms" in educational curriculums. Sample testing, course evaluation instruments, examples of various grade level curriculum units, and an annotated bibliography are featured; and charts and graphs are included. (Jhp)
Suspicion of innocence by Barbara Parker( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A smart and successful young attorney, Gail Connor is on the verge of a partnership at a major law firm in the "new" Miami, a city more Latin than Anglo, with a dark side that slides right into the Everglades. But Gail's success at work has masked failure in her personal life: an empty marriage, a daughter she hardly knows, and a past she would rather forget. Then her sister, Renee, is found dead with her wrists slashed. After Renee's suicide, Gail, left to sort out her complicated feelings for her younger, prettier sister, soon uncovers some of Renee's shocking secrets. But most shocking of all is the police's determination that Renee was murdered ... and Gail is the prime suspect. Gail's only hope is getting the best attorney she knows--her recent adversary in court, Anthony Quintana. But in what may be a major miscalculation for an otherwise street-smart woman, Gail finds herself drawn to her darkly handsome lawyer, a man whose past holds its own surprises
