  • Elementary Administrators' Exploring the Factors that Promote or
           Inhibit Reading Achievement

    • Authors: Ashley Holder et al.
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to explore the factors that promote or inhibit the reading achievement of elementary children. The participants for this study were administrators who were employed at eleven Title I schools in North Carolina. The study used a qualitative design and collected data by phone interviews with elementary administrators.Several recurring themes and patterns surfaced from the data gathered from the eleven participants. However, the overarching themes that promoted reading achievement were (a) family support, (b) early literacy exposure, and (c) teacher effectiveness and expectations. The reoccurring themes that inhibited reading achievement were (a) lack of early literacy exposure, (b) lack of family support, and (c) lack of teacher and parental expectations.

  • To Game or Not to Game' How Using Massively Multiplayer Online Games
           Helped Motivation and Performance in a College Writing Course: A Mixed
           Methods Study

    • Authors: Papia Bawa et al.
      Abstract: The use of Massively Multiplayer Online Games or MMOGs is receiving attention in the educational world due to increased availability of such games, a growing consumer base, and the proven benefits of video games as engagement tools. MMOGs that have been known to possess a significantly high capacity to keep users involved over sustained periods, which gives them the potential to enhance learning experiences and performances. However, most available studies on MMOGs do not discuss relationships between MMOG use and performance outcomes in Higher Education. Additionally, majority of such studies focus on examining a single MMOG, providing limited scopes of understanding the benefits of multiple MMOGs as educational tools. Using a sample of 32 students, this mixed-methods study investigates and supports how inserting MMOGs within an undergraduate Online English Composition section helped improve learners’ performance and engagement. Practitioner and future research implications are also discussed.

  • Using Direct Reading Instruction to Increase the Reading Achievement of
           Students with Disabilities: A Case Study

    • Authors: Marquis Grant
      Abstract: Reading was one of the areas targeted by most states for assessment because it not only is a critical area in academics, but also an area where most students were not showing gains. The National Education Association (NEA, 2004) prescribed reading as the catalyst for both learning and achievement. Reading difficulties typically being in the primary grades and become more profound by the time a child reaches high school (Fisher & Frey, 2007). However, questions regarding how exactly to formulate, deliver, sustain, and manage secondary-level interventions remain to be addressed, as do issues of validation, school resources, and cost (Kamps & Greenwood, 2005). New state and federal mandates are holding all students and educators to higher academic standards. Schools are becoming more inclusive and more collaborative despite existing organizational barriers that often interfere with effective practice.

  • Undergraduate African American Males’ Narratives on the Personal Factors
           Influencing Retention in the Social Sciences

    • Authors: Dorrance Kennedy et al.
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to explore the perceptions of undergraduate African American social science majors on the personal factors that influenced their retention in higher education. This was a qualitative study with 15 African American males who were enrolled in three universities in the University of North Carolina system. The data were collected using face-to-face interviews of approximately 45 minutes duration that took place on two separate occasions. They appeared eager to discuss their experiences as freshmen and the factors that influenced them to return to the university a second year. The main findings from this study were that African American males who persisted in the social science majors had inner determination, support from peers, mentors, parents, siblings, and extended families. They also had spiritual support, and learned to navigate through the social science curriculum with a commitment to a career in the social science field. The findings from the study contributes to the field of higher education by informing administrators about some approaches to facilitate the retention and graduation of African American males in social science majors. Future research studies might examine the persistence of other underrepresented students at other universities in social science majors using a mixed methods approach.

  • Triple Identity Theory: Conceptualizing the Lived Experiences of a Gifted
           Black Male with Dyslexia.

    • Authors: Shawn A. Robinson
      Abstract: Though overrepresented in special education, Black males are seldom given attention in scholarly literature addressing Twice-Exceptional (2e), and existing research has failed to systematically examine the intersectionality of race, dyslexia and giftedness. The article begins with definitions of key terms discussed throughout the paper. Second, the literature review synthesis relevant literature on the intersectionality that includes: race and misidentification, and my lived experience. Third, the article calls attention to a proposed cultural lens for understanding 2e Black males, its implications, and my interpretation. Finally, in the discussion section I offer PreK-12 educators with necessary information about the proper identification process, and classroom strategies. Overall, the article is based on a larger auto-ethnographic account that is based on the authors lived experiences as a gifted Black male with dyslexia.

  • “This is Not What I Expected”: Knowledge Reconfiguration in
           Preservice Teachers

    • Authors: Franco Zengaro et al.
      Abstract: The aim of this qualitative case study was to investigate how two preservice teachers reconfigured their role as teachers during their practicum. We collected data through interviews, field observations, and documentary notes gathered at an urban school across four months. Data were analyzed using the constant comparative method. The results revealed three themes: (1) Blaming vs. Connecting, (2) Idealism vs. Realism, and (3) Retreating vs. Reconfiguring. The findings of this study indicated that placement was influential for the two preservice teachers. This case study shares valuable information regarding the importance of connecting preservice teachers with quality teaching practicum experiences aimed at bridging theory and practice.

  • Multilingualism and Academic Writing: A Match Made in Heaven or a
           Disastrous Combination'

    • Authors: Roshni Paul et al.
      Abstract: There has long been a tradition of international students studying in the United Kingdom. Despite a dip in the most recently published statistics, Indian students continue to make up a high proportion of UK’s international student population. The majority of Indian students are multilingual and this raises potential problems for them with regards to academic writing, such as grammar, structuring and vocabulary. This article presents a largely empirical study which examines the experiences of, and issues faced by, seven postgraduate research students in the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment at Birmingham City University. Samples of academic writing of each participant were analysed and semi structured interviews were also conducted with the participants. Lessons from these experiences, such as the difference between participants’ actual and perceived academic writing ability, and the tendency of some students to think in their native language and then translate their thoughts into English, are discussed and proposals made as to how multilingual students can be better supported in their academic writing within the Faculty.

  • Rural Superintendents as Political Agents: Grassroots Advocacy in
           Appalachian Districts of Southeast Ohio

    • Authors: Charles L. Lowery et al.
      Abstract: This qualitative inquiry explores the narratives of rural superintendents regarding their roles as moral agents in the politics of public school settings and how they view their moral and political advocacy as grassroots activism for student and community rights. Insights from superintendent narratives provided themes about the history, practice, and expectations of school leaders as political agents within their respective communities. These themes focused on activism and advocacy for equitable funding and policymaking that specifically related to transportation, testing, and technology. Findings describe and define how superintendents make meaning of their political and public obligations and provide data that can help leadership preparation programs better prepare candidates for meaningful political practice.

  • Faculty Expectations Of Administrative Leaders’ Behavior Of The
           Department Chairs: The University Of Belize

    • Authors: Theodore J.M. Ogaldez et al.
      Abstract: AbstractA new University of Belize (UB) was created through the assimilation of several smaller institutions and was only two years old at the time of this study. The authors recognized that the creation of this most-recent university would bring different expectations of leadership on the part of faculty and administrators. As higher education changes, particularly at the UB, the need for persons in leadership positions who can bring groups together in spite of differences, will be critical. According to Machiavelli (1961), there is nothing more difficult to plan, more uncertain of success, or more dangerous to manage than the establishment of a new order. This study utilizes the Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire developed by The Ohio State University to measure the ideal behavior faculty members expect of administrative leaders at the University of Belize, using three research questions (descriptive and comparative for statistical analysis) and two open-ended questions. The survey results show no significant statistical differences between the two dimensions of leader behavior for any of the three research questions asked, leading the authors to conclude that faculty members want a balanced relationship with department chairs. The open-ended questions indicate faculty expect administrative leaders to be effective in setting and achieving departmental goals and that they value a relationship built on mutual trust and respect, desire a leader who listens, who is open to suggestions for problem solving and who fosters a spirit of teamwork and cooperation.

  • Facilitating Student Engagement Research: A Historical Analogy for
           Understanding and Applying Naturalistic Inquiry

    • Authors: Lane G. Perry III et al.
      Abstract: This paper offers a historical theoretical discussion and practical perspective on the qualitative paradigm of inquiry referred to as Naturalistic Inquiry (Lincoln & Guba, 1985). Moreover, it endeavors to demonstrate the paradigm’s versatility and usefulness when attempting to illuminate phenomena that specifically occur when students experience and interact with engaging, innovative, and experientially based pedagogies (e.g., service-learning, work-integrated learning, community-based learning). This paper presents and paradigmatically supports the researchers’ worldview through a logical primacy and discussion of ontological, epistemological, axiological, and methodological perspectives (Guba & Lincoln, 2001). Following this, Naturalistic Inquiry is identified as a paradigm of inquiry that aligns with the worldview and serves as a useful paradigm for observing phenomena, collecting and analyzing data, and presenting transferable findings with regard to experiential pedagogy. This paper could serve as a citable source and theoretical underpinning advocating and calling for qualitative methodologies and research into student and community engagement.

  • Work-related Stress and Burnout Factors of Principals in Regional Greece:
           A Historical Perspective

    • Authors: Christos Leventis et al.
      Abstract: Work-related stress and burnout is a reality in modern society, because the lack of time and the high work demands seem increasingly intensified. Thus, the study of working conditions and the factors that affect the physical and mental health becomes even more imperative. Professions that are particularly stressful are those where there is daily contact with people, for example, doctors, nurses, social workers, or school leaders. Besides administrative and official duties, modern principals perform additional functions such as the organization and management of schools, the coordination of people who are involved in the teaching and operational process and they intervene to reform and upgrade the work of their schools. In addition, they must have skills like cooperation ability, be knowledgeable in the psychology of individuals and groups, have perceptual and observation ability, administrative imagination and energy, have managerial experience and solid scientific training. Since burnout is the result of chronic work-related stress, the purpose of this study is to record the specific factors that create professional stress to school leaders and their correlation with burnout and other features, like gender or experience. This study has been conducted in a number of primary-education schools of a central region in Greece, where generally there are no monitoring practices followed, concerning the work stress of educators and their relevant support. Thus, it is perceived as a prerequisite for the designing of any supportive services and activities, if necessary.

    • Authors: Virginia J. Dickens Ph.D. et al.
      Abstract: The authors of this essay revisit what Special Education for students with disabilities in schools was intended to be in the post-Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) era. They highlight the similarities in pressures and concerns which have plagued, and still plague, the field of Special Education across the last two decades, including issues related to funding and teacher preparation. The authors challenge readers with the statement that, “Now is the time to ask hard questions about the efficacy of special education efforts.” To respond to the title question of the essay, they pose a set of questions based upon IDEA legislation and implementation concerns, and call upon Special Education professionals to ask, research, and answer the questions for the benefit of students with disabilities, their families and all others who have a stake in the answers.
