Examining the achievement gap and school-to-prison pipeline : tier 2 behavior interventions for African American and Hispanic students in secondary schools by Crystal Courtright( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Current discipline measures used in schools for African American and Hispanic students continue to be problematic, as there is an over-representation of these students in exclusionary discipline. The purpose of this project is to provide school psychologists, administrators, and teachers with current research and resources useful in empowering teaching staff to work with African American and Hispanic students, as well as assist African American and Hispanic students feel connected to school by helping them refine their social, emotional, coping, and communication skills. The purpose of this group curriculum is two fold. First, the curriculum will provide information to teachers and administrators about African American and Hispanic students including: communication styles, the over-representation of African Americans and Hispanics in exclusionary discipline, background factors, and possible problems and solutions while working with these students. Those who attend the first session of the curriculum are expected to gain insight into the over-representation of African Americans and Hispanic students in exclusionary discipline, understand their own biases when working with African American and Hispanic students, and obtain information and resources to work more effectively with African American and Hispanic student to decrease out of class exclusionary discipline. Secondly, the group curriculum will teach African American and Hispanic students coping skills, help them to manage their behavior, improve their communication skills, and understand their strengths. Students who attend the group counseling sessions are expected to be able mange their behavior appropriately in school, feel more connected to the school setting, and decrease their out of class time due to discipline. The prepared project is a group curriculum designed for school psychologists, administrators and teachers. Materials provided as a support to the curriculum include a group curriculum and activities and handouts related to each session of the curriculum. This presentation was designed so that it can be implemented by any school psychologist or school counselor

A restorative approach to group counseling with the LGBTQ population by Rachael Massey( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The majority of students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning (LGBTQ) feel ostracized in their community and experience a hostile school climate, which in turn negatively impacts their future outcomes. The purpose of this project is to provide school psychologists, school counselors, administrators, and teachers with current research and resources useful in empowering staff to work with LGBTQ students and help build resiliency in these students. This purpose of this project is two-fold. Firstly, this project encompasses a handout that outlines an in-service training for staff that provides information about LGBTQ students including: background factors, identifying students at risk for suicide and depression, how to support this population, and how to use restorative practices in the classroom. Those who attend the in-service professional training are expected to gain insight on how to refer students to the group counseling curriculum and how they can obtain more resources to work more effectively with the LGBTQ population. Secondly, there is a group counseling curriculum that will teach LGBTQ students coping skills, understand their strengths, how to use a restorative approach when attempting to problem-solve, and develop resiliency. When the restorative approach is used to solve conflicts and problem-solve, it is expected that the school climate will become more cohesive and positive. The prepared project is an in-service training and group curriculum designed for school psychologists and school counselors to implement. The in-service training is meant as professional development for other school staff including administrators and teachers. Materials are provided as a support to the in-service training and group curriculum

Hostes humani generis: piracy on the tides of empire in the Age of Sail by Aaron James Jackson( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Pirates are a fascinating subject, inspiring authors and filmmakers alike with dramatic and romantic tales of daring and adventure to create works of fiction like Treasure Island, Peter Pan, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Pirates have inspired historians to explore topics ranging from the pirate crews' proto-democratic organization to their role in developing world systems of trade and cultural exchange. Few, however, have examined how pirates helped to establish the great European maritime empires, which emerged from the relative backwater of sixteenth-century Europe to conquer distant lands and peoples, master global trade winds and tides, and muscle their way into every corner of the globe by the nineteenth century. Emerging theories in the discipline of world history appear to provide the most promising explanations of European ascendancy by emphasizing global systemic connections and contingencies. Systemic explorations of economic connections and commodities have provided historians with a much better understanding of the past, and this exploration of piracy fits this mold. Piracy was both a form of economic connection and commodity, particularly when defined as the use of violence to achieve economic gains. As this paper will show, Europe's maritime empires, and the British Empire in particular, traded this commodity heavily between the late-fifteenth and early-nineteenth centuries. The Early Modern Era was a bigger world than the one we occupy today. Reliant upon the trade winds and favorable seas to connect the imperial metropole with its colonies, the British Empire relied on a collection of frontiers to fuel its economic engines. In these frontiers, pirates helped build the British Empire, their crimes later justified its centralized authority and the state monopoly on violence, and their continued existence served as a laboratory for developing new methods of international power relations. In these ways and more, pirates deserve a great deal more credit and attention from scholarly circles. Unfortunately for historians, pirates rarely left detailed documents outlining their actions and motives, but Subaltern Studies methodology provides a potential solution. While researching colonial Indian peasant uprisings against the British for his 1983 book, Elementary Aspects of Peasant Insurgency in Colonial India, Ranajit Guha encountered difficulties in finding primary source material portraying the peasants' perspectives, which is not surprising given that colonial Indian peasants were largely illiterate. Guha could discern their perspectives by deciphering coded language in the abundance of British documents--by reading against the grain of the biased documentary record. Similarly, the clear majority of primary source material on piracy originates from official British documents, including trial transcripts, colonial correspondence, the occasional journal entry, and contemporary literature and newspaper articles. The government sources are often biased, of course, but Guha's methodology provides a filter to deal with source prejudice. Contemporary literature, such as the works of Daniel Dafoe or the infamous A General History of the Pyrates, is often embellished for entertainment value, making the separation of fact from fiction difficult. But cross-referencing this literature with sources less likely to be embellished allows one to sift through the chaff and acquire a contextual understanding of piracy. Finally, a wealth of secondary source material is available to assist in parsing the primary documentation. For example, Marcus Rediker's work on the social history of outlaws and the Atlantic slave trade provides invaluable contextual information, Linda Colley's work on captivity narratives provides insight into the victims of piracy as well as the nature of empire, K.N. Chaudhuri's work illuminates the pre-European trade systems in the Indian Ocean that European empires and pirates alike would later prey upon, and Sven Beckert's work provides an example of a global analysis of commodity exchange. World history methodologies provide frameworks in which to draw connections between seemingly separate areas and events to depict the bigger picture. Both pirates and empires have been the subjects of many historical studies, but few historians have sought to explore their interrelated natures in their European manifestations. Building an empire requires the use or threat of violence to establish a dominance relationship through which the empire draws upon the resources of the conquered--essentially piracy writ large. The development of the British Empire, with its mercantile foundations, was not a simple expression of force relationships from the beginning. It developed slowly, expanding more often through the efforts of its merchants than its navy, and in such an environment, the empire relied on the skills of pirates to acquire the resources and corresponding power required to become the largest and most influential maritime power to date. Exploring the roles pirates played in the development of imperial systems helps historians to better understand the nature, scope, and function of early modern structures that serve as the foundation for the modern era. Understanding how piracy shaped early modern empires, therefore, tells us a great deal about ourselves

Academic demands on the social-emotional health of primary and secondary grade students by Hilary F Sisson( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

With the authorization ofNo Child Left Behind, student performance on high stakes testing has moved to the forefront ofthe education political agenda. In particular, educators have felt added pressures to keep up with the tougher standards movement (Tokarski, 2011). As a result, educators often increase the amount ofhomework assigned to keep up with such political demands (Kohn, 2006). Despite this growing trend, there is little to no research to support this educational practice. Researchers, such as Cooper (1989), found that the effectiveness of homework depends on the grade level of students and time spent on homework. Research findings reveal that there is a positive correlation between homework and achievement at the high school level when students spent between one to two hours on homework. In middle school, Cooper found a positive relationship between homework and achievement when students spent up to one hour on homework. However, achievement significantly drops off after these one to two hour time frames at the secondary level. In elementary school, there was no correlation at all between the two variables. Due to many parents, students and teachers normalizing increasing academic pressure and homework demands as a part of school life, few question the value of its content or fail to recognize the stress that it may cause (Kohn, 2006). Parents and school personnel are also often unaware, or perhaps minimize, the social and emotional impacts such demands are creating for our youth. Now more than ever, local school districts and school psychologists are playing an integral role in assessing and intervening in the mental health needs of children. This comes at a time when there are also intense demands on our youth in their academics, including an increased focus on grades, standardized test scores, and larger amounts of assigned homework (Kohn, 2006). The primary purpose of this project is to develop a workshop wherein participants are provided with a review of the literature surrounding the effects of academic demands on the social-emotional health of primary and secondary grade students. The secondary purpose of this project is to provide recommendations for developing research-based homework policies, and suggestions for implementing policy change within the school. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to work with other members from their district and/or school to develop a homework policy based on the training and recommendations provided. These goals will be met through a six-hour training workshop for teachers, administrators, and other related staff in school districts and/or school sites at the primary and secondary grade levels

Sacramento State's Art Department collection: taking the collection to the next level - creating an online presence by Nancy May Wylie( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

California State University, Sacramento (CSUS or Sacramento State) has in its possession a diverse corpus of art object collections. The actual number of the entirety of the University’s art objects has not been determined as they are under the stewardship of several departments and are stored in various locations throughout the campus, such as Art, Anthropology, the University Library, the University Library Special Collection, the University Union and more. There have been concerted efforts in the past to bring the art collections together to determine the University’s holdings and create a University-wide policy for the acquisition, collection management, care, and security of the art collections. However, a consensus on caretaking methods and writing a University-wide policy has not come to fruition. Maintaining the Art Department’s Collection (ADC) has had challenges, even within a single department, resulting in the division of the storage and management of the art objects. The disjointed nature of the CSUS art objects storage and handling; the absence of a professional collection management program with skilled staff; inefficient record systems; loss of and damage to valuable objects; inadequate environmental conditions of storage and exhibition space do not support the preservation needs of the art objects. Ultimately, the reputation of the University as a trustworthy steward of these valuable assets has been compromised. The challenge is to create and establish platforms and methods that provide access to the ADC for instruction, resources, and education, despite limited resources and accessibility. My research for this Master’s Project commenced with reading and reviewing publications on subjects that related to the benefits and challenges of university and college art museums, galleries, and collections. The research provided insight into the benefits and challenges for universities and colleges in regard to having art collections for student, faculty, staff and public to utilize for research, observation, and educational purposes. Two previous CSUS Master’s Projects are referenced in this document that illustrates study and work that was completed regarding the University Art Collections preceding my project. The projects were completed by Camille T. Kondratieff and Susan M. Sinclair in 1994, and by Jennifer Grossfeld in 2013. I researched a different subject of publications in regard to developing a website for the Art Department’s Collection. Pertinent to my project of developing a website, I discovered comprehensive information on the subject of digital data and the importance of establishing a cohesive system by following established standards. My research revealed how the effective use of digital data and metadata is of primary importance for developing the website structure and coding to connect users and information. I drew upon my experience in the development and creation of websites and graphic communications to round out my academic research findings. I was employed as a website developer by CSUS Student Affairs Division for seven years, which provided me with personal knowledge and expertise working with the Universities Web Content Management (WCM) system for building websites. The WCM is the system that I used to develop and create the Art Department Art Collection website. I have been actively involved with the ADC for several years. Beginning as an undergraduate Art History major I assisted in building an initial listing of the art objects in the collection in 2003. As a graduate student, my entire Special Major Master’s program of study has been built around and attributed to various activities involving the collection. I served on the University-wide Collections Advisory Committee that was formed in June, 2012 with campus and community art and collection management professionals. Although the committee is now defunct, it was an excellent forum for connecting with representatives for various collections on campus and in the community. The Collections Advisory Committee included: Elaine O’Brien, Professor of Modern & Contemporary Art & Theory; Professor Phil Hitchcock, Director of the University Library Gallery; Professor Terri Castaneda, Director of the University Anthropology Museum; Sheila O’Neill, Head, University Library Department of Special Collections and University Archives; graduate students Jennifer Grossfeld and myself. Additionally, community art professionals – Diana Daniels, Crocker Art Museum; Beth Jones and Lynda Jolley, owners of the Jay-Jay Gallery, Sacramento; and Tom Thompson, Art Restoration Professional – added professional support and advice. Sequential Art Department Chairs, Professor Dan Frye, and Professor Catherine Turrill, Nancy Tooker, Emeritus Associate Dean of the School of the Arts; Leslie Rivers, Assistant to the Director of the University Library Gallery; and Kevin Ptak, Art Department Instructional Assistant, all made essential contributions. I co-curated two exhibitions: Lost & Found: Selection from the Sacramento State Art Collection, August/September 2012 in the Robert Else Gallery. In addition to selecting art objects for display, I videotaped the panel discussion, September 13, 2012, that was held in conjunction with the exhibition regarding the history of the collection as discussed by prior Art Department Chairs: Art Department Chair Dan Frye (Chair 2007 – 2013) and five former Art Department chairs: Emeriti Professors Irving Marcus (Chair 1966 – 1970), Allan Gordon (Chair 1970 – 1976, 1985 – 1988), and Lita Whitesel (Chair 1991 – 1995); and Professors Phil Hitchcock (Chair 1976 – 1985) and Catherine Turrill (Chair 2001 – 2007, 2013 – 2016). I transcribed the panel discussion for use in this project and to preserve the event for historical purposes. (Appendix A) The second exhibit was Treasures Revealed: Art from the Sacramento State Collection, August/ September 2015, in the CSUS University Union Gallery. This exhibit was a cross-departmental collaboration that featured art objects from the Anthropology Museum, Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection, Library Special Collections, Library Gallery Collection, ADC and the University Union Collection. The exhibition highlighted the wide range of valuable art objects located in different departments throughout the University. Working with CSUS students during the spring 2016 semester, I was the lead curator for Ink on Paper - Creating an Artistic Expression: Works on Paper from the Sacramento State Art Collection, August/September 2016, in the CSUS University Union Gallery. The exhibition was a collaboration that created a unique educational experience for the participating students. The curation of the exhibit provided the opportunity to utilize the ADC as a teaching tool to inform and educate the audience on the print making process. The security and preservation of the ADC have been dependent upon the dedicated faculty, staff and students who have volunteered their support culminating in accomplishing meaningful and enduring collection management fundamentals to preserve, protect and promote the collection. At the Art Department level, there is currently support from the College of Arts & Letters Interim Dean Sheree Meyer and Interim Associate Dean, Christina Bellon, the Art Department Chair, Carolyn Gibbs, and Professor Elaine O’Brien. However, the historical challenges are ongoing regarding space to store the collection, lack of funding to support the collection and no professionally-trained staff persist as barriers hindering the formation of enduring strategies for the future care and preservation of the ADC. The challenge is to create and establish platforms and methods that provide access to the ADC for instruction and education, despite limited resources and accessibility. This challenge has been met in many ways and will need to continue to develop and expand a longstanding program to utilize the art collection
