    EDU671: My Mock Action Research Proposal Presentation

    in Education

    Action research is inquiry or reseaarch in the context of focused efforts to improve the quality of an organization and its performance. It typically is designed and conducted by practitioners who analyze the data to improve their own practice. Action research can be done by individuals or by teams of colleagues.


    An action research proposal is the first part of the action research paper.  The main difference is that you put the methodology section into the future tense and include a detailed research timeline.


    I'd like to give special thanks to Instructor Anthony Valley.  Instructor Valley, having you as an instructor has been a real blessing.

    Turtle Crossing with the Wabashiki Turtle Research and Rescue Group

    in Education

    The members of the Wabashiki Turtle Research and Rescue Group have been working hard to get an eco-passage built under highway 40/150 at West Terre Haute so that the various species of turtles and other wildlife can safely migrate from the Wabashiki protected wetlands to the large privately owned lake to the north. Sadly many turtles are smashed on the highway and those that make it past the highway often find themselves trapped between the railroad tracks where they are baked alive in their own shells. The members of the Wabashiki Turtle Research and Rescue Group have been rescueing as many turtles as possible from this gruesome fate. In response to their efforts, the Indiana Department of Transportation has erected two TURTLE CROSSING signs at the location. There is still a lot of work to be done.

    African and Native American Research with Angela Walton-Raji

    in History

    Genealogist Angela Walton-Raji has committed herself to sharing information with the descendants of the Freedmen of Indian Territory--which is now Oklahoma. She is the author of  the book Black Indian Genealogy Research: African American Ancestors Among the Five Civilized Tribes. The book serves as a guide to researching the history and lives of the 20,000 Freedmen of Indian Territory, who have been deleted from American history. She is also the author of the http://african-nativeamerican.blogspot.com.


    The Dawes Commission, named after Henry C. Dawes who chaired the commission, consisted of a process that would lead to a redistribution of land to those who already owned it among the Five "Civilized" Tribes. Understand that land was held in common by the Five Civilized Tribes. The Dawes Enrollment process was created to determine who would be eligible for allotted parcels of land. Eligibility involved providing "proof" that one had been a part of the tribe for several decades, and especially in those years immediately following the Civil War. So one had to prove that one had been a part of the Indian Community since 1866. For those whose ancestors were enslaved by members of the Tribes, (the Freedmen)  they had to often provide proof that their former enslaver was a member of the tribe.

    More Than Just A Good Idea: Education Research to Guide Product Development

    in Education

    November


    More than Just a Good Idea: Education Research Guide to Product Development


    Ideas abound for new teaching methodologies, and curriculum, and each claims to be innovative and effective. Governments throughout the world fund a wealth of research into educational strategies and instructional design every year, yet we find that these communities often don’t communicate well with each other. It is not unusual for popular educational solutions to lack research into their effectiveness and how best they can be applied. Equally unusual, many educational research programs, in which curriculum is developed, never see the commercial light of day, or broad distribution.


    We will examine what educational research brings to improving products today and in the future and how publishers can take advantage of research findings to improve their offerings. 


    Host Michael Jay and our leading education thinkers will contemplate the following:



    How closely tied is today’s research programs to educational practice?
    Where are there challenges for the research community in working with commercial vendors?
    How are requirements at funding agencies changing to bring these communities closer together?
    How are our universities and research institutions working to accommodate the commercialization of products from their research?
    How can publishers reach out to the research community to improve their offerings and gain greater credibility with the educational community?

    The Half Has Never Been Told with Edward E. Baptist, Ph.D.

    in History

    The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism


    Historian Edward E. Baptist reveals in The Half Has Never Been Told, the expansion of slavery in the first eight decades after American independence drove the evolution and modernization of the United States. In the span of a single lifetime, the South grew from a narrow coastal strip of worn-out tobacco plantations to a continental cotton empire, and the United States grew into a modern, industrial, and capitalist economy. Until the Civil War, Baptist explains, the most important American economic innovations were ways to make slavery ever more profitable. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from enslaved African Americans. Thus the United States seized control of the world market for cotton, the key raw material of the Industrial Revolution, and became a wealthy nation with global influence.


    Told through intimate slave narratives, plantation records, newspapers, and the words of politicians, entrepreneurs, and escaped slaves, The Half Has Never Been Told offers a radical new interpretation of American history. It forces readers to reckon with the violence at the root of American supremacy, but also with the survival and resistance that brought about slavery’s end—and created a culture that sustains America’s deepest dreams of freedom.


    Edward E. Baptist is an Associate Professor in the Department of History and House Professor and Dean at the Carl Becker House at Cornell University.
