A QUALITATIVE STUDY OF TEACHERS CERTIFIED BY THE NATIONAL BOARD FOR PROFESSIONAL TEACHING STANDARDS
The purpose of this research study was to describe the characteristics and instructional practices of teachers certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) in the Early Childhood/Generalist category. The problem of the study is to examine if there are common characteristics that exemplary teachers use. The study rests upon the following considerations: 1) literacy learning is important and the early childhood period is prime time for language learning; 2) young chi

An Examination of the Anxiolytic Effects of Interaction with a Therapy Dog
Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) involves a goal-directed intervention in which an animal is an integral part of the treatment process. The use of AAT is becoming increasingly popular in a variety of fields, including mental health care. Anxiety is one of the primary psychological constructs that has been addressed through the use of AAT in the mental health field. Although there is a wealth of anecdotal information and supposition to support the use of AAT, as well as some research, there remains
University / K – 12 Partnerships: How One University Impacted High School Career Decision-making
Local universities and their surrounding school districts have much to offer one another. How universities and school districts work together to create programmatic change in career decision-making for the high school adolescent is unclear. Utilizing a case study approach, this study examined the relationship that exists between a university and two high schools. This was studied through the lens of career development with regard to high school students. This qualitative case study utilized pe

Back to Nature for the Next Technology Revolution
Engineering researchers such as Babak Parviz are studying nature on the nanoscale to create the next technology revolution. Imagine using DNA as a template to "grow" electronic devices, or custom designing molecules to build transistors. It could transform our future. (Series: 2008 Engineering Lecture Series)
UW 360: October 2010

Freedom of Expression on the Internet
The Internet offers extraordinary opportunities for "speakers," broadly defined. Political candidates, cultural critics, corporate gadflies -- anyone who wants to express an opinion about anything -- can make their thoughts available to a world-wide audience far more easily than has ever been possible before. A large and growing group of Internet participants have seized that opportunity. Some observers find the resultant outpouring of speech exhilarating. They see in it nothing less than the re
Material/Immaterial In the lecture titled MATERIAL | IMMATERIAL, Vincent James will describe how VJAA works systematically and critically to contextualize their architectural projects and expand the range of possible design responses beyond the formal identity of the architects. Through a wideranging search for an embedded logic that lies beneath each work, the firm explores the essential markers of site, function, materiality, and technology to serve as an armature for its development.

The Groundhog Song from First Snow in the Woods-Hibernation
A groundhog bursts into song about hibernation, then a chipmunk sings about semi-hibernation, followed by a duet with a woodpecker. There are also appearances by a butterfly, caterpillar, spider, deer, and hummingbird. Silly song that students will enjoy. Great teaching resource for learning about what animals do in the winter (1:44).
