    • Jihad and American Education: An Examination of Textbook Inclusion

      Bourne, Michael W.; The College at Brockport (2010-07-01)
      This study investigates what impact has the American educational system had in conveying the religious ideals of Islam within high school classrooms and has classroom discussions dealing with the societal profiles of Muslims been proactive or passive in dealing with this controversial issue? The method in which traditional American scholarly mindsets have approached the Islamic religion in education is explored and compared to relatively recent conceptions of Muslims within American schools in order to shed light on an interesting modern topic with immense historical background. Finally, a professional development presentation, designed to show societal impact of nationalistic bias of textbook information on generational attitudes. The responsibilities to teachers to go beyond the textbook on debatable subject content in order to give students the tools they need to make educational approaches to topics is stressed.

    • Job satisfaction for campus recreation professionals within NIRSA institutions

      Stier, William F.; Schneider, Robert C.; Kampf, Stephen; Gaskins, Brady P.; Bowling Green State University - Main Campus; The College at Brockport (2010-01-01)
      An international investigation was conducted to determine the overall job satisfaction of college campus recreation employees who are members of the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA). Demographic information was gathered to provide statistical analysis based on (a) region; (b) size of school; (c) private versus public; (d) four-year versus two-year schools; (e) rural, suburban, and urban location; (f) years in the profession; and (g) reporting structure. The following work related areas were examined to determine if NIRSA members were satisfied with their job environment: (a) personal/individual satisfaction, (b) staffing and organizational structure, (c) financial support, (d) salary and professional development, (e) department and individual expectations, (f) campus recreation facilities, and (g) campus collaboration and communication. The study found that overall the respondents indicated they were satisfied with their job situation/ environment with greater satisfaction being shown by those with loftier job titles when compared with those with lesser job titles. Differences in job satisfaction were noted in terms of (a) supervisor’s expectations of them, salary, and hours worked (based on amount of experience); (b) salary (based on title held); (c) budget allocation (based on reporting structure); and (d) a desire to leave their present position/ job (in terms of job title held, experience/length of service and reporting structure).
    • John Donne: The Sacramentality of Sex

      Fuller, Kyle; The College at Brockport (2013-04-08)
      The presentation examines Donne's use of erotic imagery and sexual language as a means to convey a deeper spiritual meaning and religious experience in his poetry. Specifically, the paper focuses on the relationship between the body and soul and how reciprocated, mutual, 'true love', is attained through the combination of the two. In much of his work, Donne depicts love through a sacramental lens, making it more than an emotion, but a means to forming a connection with the divine. This duality between the physical and the spiritual is particularly evident in his secular works, The Flea, The Extasie, and Aire and Angels, as well as in his Divine Poems, particularly Holy Sonnet XIII. These works express Donne's belief in the earthly body as a necessary component for love, and its capabilities of drawing one closer to God. Thus, he suggests that carnal lust and a love of the Lord are not two completely contradictory notions.

    • Journal Writing: Taking Math Instruction to the Next Level

      Van Voorst, Conrad; Gianvecchio, Anthony; The College at Brockport (2009-12-01)
      In the last two decades literacy has been the focus across all content areas, including mathematics, allowing students to demonstrate their thinking processes and understanding. The purpose of this qualitative study was to discover if journal writing in math improves middle school students' ability to gain a greater understanding of the processes involved in mathematical reasoning. Students in an eighth grade math class in a suburban middle school in Western New York completed journal entries at the start of a new unit to discern knowledge of the topic. The conclusions imply that journal writing aids in student mathematical learning. Math journals not only help instructors in understanding students' feelings, but also help students demonstrate their mathematical thinking processes and understanding.
    • Journaling as an Assessment Option

      James, Alisa; The College at Brockport (2005-09-01)
      Assessment refers to a variety of tasks and settings where students are given opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge, skill, understanding, and application of content in a context that allows for continued learning and growth ISiedentop & Tannehill, 2000). A number of different types of assessments can be used to evaluate student learning and growth including teacher, peer, and self-evaluations using tools such as checklists and rubrics. Student journals are a specific assessment tool teachers can use to examine student learning in the affective and cognitive domains. Journaling also provides a nonthreatening venue for students to communicate their knowledge and feelings about physical education. This article examines the use of student journals as an assessment tool in physical education.
    • Joyce Cary's Onomastic "Orchestration": Name, Symbol, and Theme in The Horse's Mouth

      Kelley Stamm, Ramona (2014-10-16)
      Like many of his literary contemporaries, Joyce Cary maintains a more than superficial interest in the power of the word. Many modernist writers share with him an ambivalent attitude toward the word. To some degree, they hold the belief that words are worn out, obsolete, or otherwise inadequate to express the concerns of the twentieth century. On one hand, they are dissatisfied with the word, but on the other, they are forced to contend with the word as the only means of expression they have, yet many of them eventually come to see the word as still being capable of working transformations on both individuals and the world. Cary, too, recognizes and deplores the predicament of the literary artist who is compelled to use inadequate and vague language, and he expresses interest in his fellow artists' literary experiments.1 He wants his readers to enter into the fictive world as completely as possible, but he realizes that the very form of his craft works against this. He believes that all writers feel the limitations of language when they are "struggling to express an intuition of life which transcends any possible symbolic form" (Art and Reality 152). Many of his contemporaries attempt to change the world by changing the language and by engaging in radical and experimental forms, but Cary uses a more conventional artistic expression. He attempts to recharge, to revitalize words, but he insists that the continuity of the reader's experience should not be hampered by the artist's method of presentation. In order to accomplish his artistic goals, Cary employs names as symbols in The Horse's Mouth.
    • junction

      Buides, Grisell; The College at Brockport (2014-05-17)
      This thesis is a hybrid work, and includes fourteen pieces: nine poems, two vignettes, and three short stories. Some of the pieces have been inspired by news stories, and others by the writer's photography and travel experiences, specifically, her semester abroad in China. Although the content varies, the subjects of perception, human relationships, death, and a focus on the seasons and urban landscape serve to create a connection between the pieces. The poems are all free verse, but many of them maintain a consistent form. The writer experiments with visual line breaks, inspired by the poetry of E.E. Cummings, as well as prose poetry. While the short stories have a traditional structure, the vignettes are less narrative and more impressionistic. The thesis is divided into two parts. The first has a greater focus on relationships between people, while the second emphasizes the city and touches on the subject of consumerism, particularly in the final three pieces. The writings of Matsuo Basho, William Carlos Williams, Sandra Cisneros, and W.G. Sebald have also influenced the content of this thesis.

    • Justice and Utility: Who Cares?

      Held, Virginia (1996-01-01)
      In recent decades, the dominant moral theories have been deontological and consequentialist. Also in the last few decades, feminist moral theory has developed. Is feminist moral theory distinctive, or is it just a version of one of these other types of theory? This paper discusses this issue.
    • Justice for the Jewish Refugee: The Development of British Refugee Policy, 1930-1945

      Thompsell, Angela; Lovell, Kelly; The College at Brockport (2018-01-13)
      Europe in the 1930s and early 1940s saw a large shift in population as different groups of people attempted to leave their homes to escape persecution. The dictators in Germany, Italy and the Soviet Union persecuted against people based on their religion, ability and sexual orientation. The German government, for example, encouraged the Jewish population of the country to emigrate in the early 1930s in an attempt to “purify” their country. Catholics and other political opponents of Hitler also left Germany to avoid persecution or punishment. Many of these refugees traveled to Britain, initially, to escape the harsh, Nazi rule. The British government attempted to provide alternate final destinations for the people escaping mainland-Europe, but many refugees had to make a life for themselves in Britain either temporarily or permanently. The forced migration from persecution in Austria, Germany, and later other regions in continental Europe and the role of the British government is a topic of debate for historians. On one side, some historians argue that the British government provided enough assistance to the refugees from Central and Eastern Europe. On the other side, historians argue that the government could have done more to make the transition easier. Using memos, government meeting minutes, official documents, memoirs, and personal accounts, this paper will analyze the response of the British government to the influx of refugees from Central and Eastern Europe between 1930 and 1945, focusing on Jewish refugees. How did immigration policy progress with the rising tensions in Europe? How did events like the Anschluss and Kristallnacht influence British refugee policy? Overall, the immigration policies imposed by the British government were restrictive, but aimed to protect British subjects during a time of war. In the 1930’s, the Cabinet primarily focused on recovering from the global economic crisis which had left thousands unemployed or underemployed. Between 1939 and 1945, the War Cabinet shifted their focus to a global war effort to defeat the Axis Powers. Parliament and the Cabinet responded to the call to accept refugees from continental Europe, but repeatedly placed more value on British lives than the lives of those escaping persecution and violence.
    • Juvenile Hormone Metabolism in the American Cockroach, Periplaneta americana, (L.)

      Massare, John Steve; The College at Brockport (1973-01-01)
      his study confirms the results of Slade and Zibitt, (1972), and Ajami and Riddiford, (1973), that juvenile hormone in insects is predominately metabolized by esterase attack at the methyl ester as well as by epoxide hydration. We were unable however to find the JH acid – diol metabolite present in any of our extracts. Many esterases were found in the hemolymph, gut, and fat body of male nymphs of Periplaneta americana, with the fat body containing these enzymes in greater abundance than the other tissues. Tracing experiments carried out on last instar male nymphs show significant amounts of label present in the gut and excrement after six hours. We were unable to show any evidence of binding of juvenile hormone in last instar male nymphs. It appears that on a wet weight of tissue basis, that last instar nymphs possess a greater ability to degrade 3H - Cecropia juvenile hormone to JH – acid than younger nymphs.
