The Miao can be subdivided into three broad cultural and linguistic groups—the Hmong in Yunnan, the Hmu in Guizhou, and the Xioob in Guizhou and Hunan provinces— with intergroup differences mostly observed at village level. At least three major Miao languages have been described, each of which is subdivided into multiple dialects Diamond ; Black et al.
Celebrate Hawaiian culture with Dr. Sam Gon as he explores the history of change by an island people who developed a culture as rich and unique as their natural setting. Sam has over 35 years of experience in Hawaiian ecology and extensive knowledge of Hawaiian culture and cultural protocols, history, language and traditional Hawaiian chants and hula.
Sincethey have established a statewide system of Conservancy preserves, helped create new wildlife refuges and expand national parks, forged partnerships to protect our most important watershed forests and coral reefs, and led efforts to stem the tide of invasive species entering the state.
As a part of the Conservancy staff for over 25 years, Sam has brought his expertise to the organization in a variety of capacities. As Ecologist for the Hawaii Natural Heritage Program of he conducted biological inventories, reports and management recommendations; and as Director of Science he guided the science behind the vision and operations of The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii.
In his current role as Senior Scientist and Cultural Advisor, Sam maintains his science guidance, and adds his cultural expertise to enhance the mission of The Conservancy. Many studies have demonstrated that physical activity is associated with decreased risk of chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, hypertension, non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus NIDDDMcancer, as well as osteoporosis and many other conditions.
Schack, Fred —— George Mason University Strategies for Calming Fearful Patients This presentation will focus on the results obtained from an on-line survey regarding strategies used by therapeutic aquatic professionals when working with patients who are fearful.
Questions were designed to collect demographic information, barriers patients encountered, and techniques and methods successfully used by clinicians. This knowledge is then used to build basic principles for designing curricular integration activities that maximize learning by creating the same neurological responses in the brain.
This paper juxtaposes contemporary architectural philosophy and injury incidence data to paint a picture of a hidden curriculum deep within the subconscious of our litigious education systems.
At heart: the phenomenonolgical experience of skateboarders at school. Pittman, Anthony —— Kean University Correlated Science and Math Professional Development Although national standards recommend integration, without effective PD models, broad-scale integration is not likely to occur.
This presentation describes the evaluation of a professional development PD model called Correlated Science and Mathematics CSM for its effectiveness in enabling teachers to integrate science and mathematics curriculum more thoroughly and uniquely than traditional integration models.
The implementation of the CSM PD model was effective in enabling teacher teams to effectively teach integrated science and mathematics lessons. However, foreign-trained teachers encounter challenges negotiating their professional identity in new sociocultural contexts and face systemic barriers.
This research explores the professional identity development of foreign-trained teachers in repositioning themselves in classrooms in BC and provides an appreciation for the role of others in facilitating their integration.
The construct of school culture emerged in the U. We will discuss the implications of our findings on both cognition theories and educational reform. Here, we propose to investigate the role of mind wandering, if any, in the retrieval process, and discuss the potential impact of our findings on retrieval-based theories and, more broadly, the learning process.
Challenges in online peer assessment faced by students from Asia who enrolled in post-secondary institutions in English speaking countries and who are an EFL speaker are explored in this presentation. Watanabe, Miwa —— Simon Fraser University Electronic Pedagogical Practice: The Art and Science of Teaching and Learning Through On-line Environments This paper will include an evaluation of personal experience, case study, student comments, course surveys and teacher evaluations in order to highlight the relationship between course curriculum and goals, pedagogy, and student learning.
On-line courses can offer learning opportunities for all types of learners. Students who attend school online school need support in order to be successful. This study examines the variables that correlate to academic success in a full-time virtual school, and investigates the perceptions of parents of students who attend full-time, online schools.
Findings indicate that students need support from the school, from their parents, and must fully participate themselves to be successful. This technology was applied using Google Drive, a cloud-based office suite consisting of word processor, presentation, spreadsheet, and survey form applications.
This tool was used to support various collaborative classroom activities online include a group project. This research describes the results of using the cloud application and suggests best practices on how to best apply this technology.
Faculty at Boise State created an experimental game-based learning QBL management system and have been conducting and researching classes built on the principles of quest-based learning leveraging experiences points, badges, achievements, leveling, and student choice.
The presentation will demonstrate tool, pedagogy, and results of a more than two years of Design-Based Research into student success and satisfaction in QBL. Through surveys, interviews, and observations, we found that these benefits include: 1 the engagement of students, 2 the incorporation of multiple strands, concepts, and expectations, and 3 the suitability for students of varying abilities.
Although including similar key content, they exhibit distinct approaches to teaching and learning angle. Mathematics uses a static meaning of angle and operates on angles as objects from the beginning; Math Trailblazers emphasizes a dynamic notion of angle and promotes various processes of creating, showing, and estimating angles.
Lee, the first Korean American journalist in the United States. The importance of K. This study explored the influence of the course on their attitudes and emotions which led to personal development and changes of their self-concept as teachers.
A Student Perspective Teaching is less valued today in most research universities. This study will try to identify the qualities of a good professor based on student comments.
Student comments in relation to the numerical scores that they gave on different questions in the Ratemyprofessors. The latter is possible through collaborative research initiatives that develop and improve critical thinking and creativity skills, hands-on, team oriented, and interdisciplinary learning via collaborative research projects.
Canadian policies involving international students will also be examined. To estimate values of design parameters, we draw on a national sample of teachers.Free math problem solver answers your algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, and statistics homework questions with step-by-step explanations, just like a math tutor.
