The Role of the Elementary Principal in Promoting Parent Involvement: Evidence from Rural, Blue Ribb
The reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary School Education Act has amplified the implications of including parents in the education process. The benefits of parental involvement coupled with the teachers' and parents’ role in promoting involvement have been researched and studied for many years. Few studies focus solely on the principal’s role in promoting parent involvement, however. This study will examine the specialized association and participation of rural elementary princ

Rural Adolescent Perceptions of the Availability and Accessibility of Substance Abuse Treatment
The prevalence of substance abuse among rural adolescents has equaled or surpassed rates in urban youth, but rural substance abusers go untreated at rates twice that of urban populations. Cultural norms adverse to help-seeking, and low availability and accessibility of substance treatment in rural areas may effect treatment utilization. The primary purpose of this study was to assess rural adolescents’ substance problem recognition and perceptions of substance abuse treatment availability and
Journalism, Letters, and Nation: The Newspaper Letters of Samuel Bowles’s Across the Continent (18
Newspaper publisher Samuel Bowles set out on a trip in the early summer of 1865 to see and write about the United States of America. A leading figure in journalism and in political discourses before and after the Civil War, Bowles shared his experiences in a series of thirty-two letters, addressed to the readers of his influential Massachusetts newspaper, the Springfield Republican. The letters were subsequently compiled into a book, Across the Continent: A Summer’s Journey to the Rocky Mounta
The Prereferral Intervention Process in Pennsylvania Following the Removal Of the Instructional Supp
The recent focus on Response to Intervention (RTI) has heightened the need for information regarding characteristics of prereferral intervention teams (PITs) that lead to successful outcomes. Though many researchers have theorized about important features of PITs, few studies have examined the factors that lead to high-functioning teams. Elementary principals in Pennsylvania (N = 440) were surveyed regarding prereferral intervention practices. Schools that continued to employ instructional
A Writing Teacher Learns from his Students: The Symbiosis of Student-Centered Pedagogy and Teacher R

20.441J Biomaterials-Tissue Interactions (MIT)
This course covers the principles of materials science and cell biology underlying the design of medical implants, artificial organs, and matrices for tissue engineering. Methods for biomaterials surface characterization and analysis of protein adsorption on biomaterials. Molecular and cellular interactions with biomaterials are analyzed in terms of unit cell processes, such as matrix synthesis, degradation, and contraction. Mechanisms underlying wound healing and tissue remodeling following imp
Most Internet content today is "served" from a central system that takes requests from a user's "client." Typically, the user asks for access to information or other data; the requested content is then "pushed" from the central system to the user. In this model, the various visitors to a given web site do not interact. By contrast, peer-to-peer technology (commonly known as "P2P") creates conversations among individual personal computers (PCs). In this respect, P2P systems resemble an affili

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.
