Lest we forget ( visu )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
After the Terrorist attacks of 9/11, some Americans began defining a new "enemy alien"--American Arabs, South Asians, Muslims. Through a critical lens, this film explores a lesson that history has forgotten; of a country alienating its own citizens and violating their civil liberties once again. After Pearl Harbor it was being of Japanese ancestry, now it is Arabic descent, brown skin, belief in Islam. Looks at stories of individuals affected by the Japanese internments during WWII and draws parallels with events post-9/11, investigating how extensive "homeland security" can cross the line to racial attacks and unjust treatment of innocent individuals
How schools responded to student mental health needs following hurricanes Katrina and Rita ( Book )

Theoretical study of helium-3 in aerogel by Priya Sharma( file )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The discovery of superfluidity in the system of 3He impregnated into highly porous silica aerogel provided a unique opportunity to study the effect of disorder on an unconventional pairing superfluid, the bulk properties of which are well-known. Experimental studies have indicated that the properties of the superfluid are drastically changed by the presence of the aerogel. I have presented a theoretical study of the system of 3He in aerogel, within a framework of a homogenous model for the scattering induced by the aerogel, in this thesis
Towards a Better Approach for Intercountry Adoption by Priya Sharma( Article )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Document analyses of student use of a blogging-mapping tool to explore evidence of deep and reflective learning by Ying Xie( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Theoretical study of ³He in aerogel by Priya Sharma( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The surface of the aerogel strands is coated with a thin solid layer of 3He. Quasiparticles of the liquid can scatter off these solid 3He spins, through a spin-dependent scattering channel. The inclusion of a magnetic scattering mechanism modifies the equilibrium phase diagram. I discuss the splitting of the superfluid transition temperature due to magnetic scattering and estimate the strength of this channel based on experimental data

The evolution of critical thinking and use of scaffolding in a technology-mediated learning environment : an exploratory study by Priya Sharma( file )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Recently, much attention has been focused on identifying and developing methods for supporting and facilitating critical thinking in students. Scaffolding is one method that has been used in a variety of settings, ranging from one-on-one tutoring to traditional classrooms for supporting very different learning goals. The effectiveness of scaffolding has led to increasing interest in developing and implementing technologymediated scaffolding for a variety of competencies, including scientific thinking and higher order thinking skills. This study focused on the influence of scaffolding on the evolution of critical thinking skills in a technology-mediated environment. The three main research questions addressed by the study sought to explore: changes in participant perceptions and use of scaffolding, the evolution of critical thinking in each participant over the course of a semester, and influences on the evolution of each participant's critical thinking. A qualitative design guided data collection and analysis. The study was conducted in the context of an online class on Instructional Design. All students in the class were provided with scaffolding for certain class tasks, and the scaffolding was gradually faded over the semester. Five graduate participants were purposefully selected from the class and interviewed repeatedly over the course of the semester. Data analysis occurred through constant comparison. Major findings indicated that participant use of scaffolding moved from externally directed to internally relevant assimilation, and the change in use resulted from an acknowledgement of individual needs and context. The evolution of critical thinking proceeded through three stages identified as mirroring, distortion, and reconstruction. Each stage was characterized by typical approaches to assimilation of knowledge on instructional design; each stage was also marked by a display of certain prototypical critical thinking skills by participants. Influences on the evolution of critical thinking included prior knowledge, reflection, feedback, project context, and perception of self as learner. Based on the study data and related research and theory, a framework is proposed for describing the coactive evolution of critical thinking and assimilation of scaffolding. Implications for research and practice are outlined
An evaluation of bacterial adherence and penetration of barriers used in guided tissue regeneration by Priya Sharma( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Minority sexuality in the city the female ethno-racial immigrant/refugee experience within Canadian culture by Priya Sharma( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The purpose of this qualitative interpretive analysis was to increase the knowledge base on an under-researched topic and population. The study population was comprised of first- and second-generation Canadian, visible-minority, immigrant/refugee women. Nine women of different visible-minority, ethno-racial backgrounds participated in the study. The interviews were in-depth and conducted one on one. The women reflected on how they created their sexuality as youth into adulthood, based on their experiences of Canadian culture as well as their particular culture of origin. The ingenuity they demonstrated in their successful integration into Canadian society as well as in their current status as adult women and mothers will be explored in the study findings. The recommendations these women offered the next generation, with a hope for a better future for all Canadians, will also be discussed

Rag and bone a original by Priya Sharma( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Rag and Bone, by Priya Sharma, is about Tom, who buys unwanted household items and scavenges other materials (including bones) and resells them in an alternative 19th century Liverpool in which the wealthy use the poor for parts from the inside out, should they need them. Colorful, disturbing, and moving as Tom maneuvers warily between the masters he serves and the poor from whom he scavenges.
