• Succor Through Suboxone Treatment

      Hernandez, Thomas J.; Goodspeed, Patricia; Dobmeier, Robert; Campbell, Shiela R.; The College at Brockport (2015-05-15)
      Opioid misuse has created a National health crisis. Thousands of opiate abusers die each year from drug overdose. Prescription painkillers have become the source of addiction for millions of Americans. Individuals are becoming addicted to the medication used to treat pain and are overdosing and dying as a result. Finding a solution for the treatment of this chronic disease is essential because its widespread use is reaching pandemic proportions. This paper will explore the use of Buprenorphine (Suboxone) as a medical-assisted treatment response. This qualitative study provides first-person accounts of the struggle with opiate addiction, and the impact that Buprenorphine has on the quality of life of the participant.

    • Summer Program at the United Nations: Why Should You Care?

      Olagunju, Deborah; The College at Brockport (2018-07-01)
      The Summer Program at the United Nations was an enticing and inspirational experience. We met daily with Directors of different sectors in the United Nations. They taught us about their area of specialty and the importance of their role. We sat in on multiple Security Council sessions where we observed how all the countries who were present interacted with one another and voted on global issues that would better the lives and overall status of the member countries. Through firsthand experience, we analyzed the function of the United Nations versus the failed League of Nations.

    • Supporting Children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: Using Group Counseling to Help Increase Understanding and Self-Concept

      Stewart, Tammy I.; The College at Brockport (2006-01-01)
      The study was conducted to help add knowledge to the literature about supporting children diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. It was hypothesized that through the use of group counseling, self-concept and knowledge and understanding of the disorder would increase. The Piers-Harris Self-Concept Scale and a self-constructed survey were the instruments used in the study. The results of the study showed that the level of self-concept of the students in the counseling group did not increase but their knowledge and understanding of ADHD did. The researcher concluded that group counseling similar to that in the study could serve as a useful form of treatment for school counselors in trying to support the emotional wellbeing of students with ADHD.
    • Supporting ELLs Literacy Outcomes by Using Tools

      Mazurett-Boyle, Rosa; Bailey, Amanda (2019-12-10)
      Many general education teachers feel confused and overwhelmed when working with ELLs because they may not have the proper training or knowledge to support this population of students. This is a problem because most ELLs academic achievement scores in reading are lower than their non-ELL peers. ELLs face three overarching challenges including, linguistic, sociocultural and assessment challenges, which impact their learning. To remediate these challenges and address the problem educators will learn through two professional development sessions how to implement various tools including graphic supports and sensory supports to enhance instruction for ELLs. After these two professional development sessions, educators will know how to evaluate and choose graphic supports to use with lesson materials and tests or assessments. They will also know how to select appropriate graphic organizers and modify them using graphic supports.
    • Supporting Kindergartners’ Writing Development Through the Use of Lucy Calkins’ Units of Study: A Self Study

      Supporting Kindergartners’ Writing Development Through the Use of Lucy Calkins’ Units of Study: A Self Study Lora Bower Candidate for Master of Science in Education The College at Brockport, State University of new York, 2014 Abstract This self-study is my attempt to determine how I could use Lucy Calkins Units of Study writing curriculum to support my kindergarten students’ writing development. I conducted the research over a five-week period. Each day, I read the lesson in the Units of Study curriculum and decided which components I needed to modify so my students would find success as writers. My data collection included a summary of the daily lesson and a reflection upon my instructional decisions. As a result of my research, I concluded that I could support my students’ writing development by crafting and modifying the mini lessons and conference topics, extending the time frame of specific lessons, assuming a more indirect role, and setting high expectations.

    • Supporting the language development and service needs of young children from Chinese immigrant families: Utilizing best practices from international education.

      Zhang, Jie; Fallon, Moira; The College at Brockport (2013-01-01)
      As many more families emigrate to the United States (US) and other countries from China, it becomes vital that families, service providers, and professionals understand the basic demographic characteristics of these families. Early detection followed by culturally competent intervention services is more likely to provide the best chance of longterm beneficial outcomes for children with varying educational needs. This research investigation aims to provide more detailed information and cultural support for evidenced based interventions to school providers so that they will know how to better serve students from Chinese immigrant families. The research investigators used three approaches in this exploratory study: a survey instrument, a follow-up interview, and a case study. The results of this study demonstrate that these immigrant families, especially those from Chinese cultures, possess unique characteristics and strengths. The usefulness of this information to practitioners is two-fold: a more comprehensive summary of the demographic characteristics of Chinese immigrant families and the self-reported concerns and challenges of these families with unmet educational needs.
    • Survey of Existing and Proposed Methods of Teacher Recruitment and Selection and their Effect on the Current Teacher Shortage

      Day, David E.; The College at Brockport (1958-06-01)
      This paper discusses the importance of education in modern society and explores the post-WWII factors negatively affecting teacher recruitment. The author analyzes teacher recruitment and retention methods through interviews and surveys. Results indicate that pay, coupled society’s negative attitudes toward teaching, prevent qualified young people from seeing teaching as a legitimate, desirable profession. The author draws particular attention to schools’ inconsistent attitudes towards recruitment strategies and the teacher selection process. The author presents several possible methods for teacher selection, including soliciting group/staff input and establishing a hiring committee.
    • Survey of Lake Ontario Bottom Sediment off Rochester, New York, to Define the Extent of Jettisoned World War II Matèriel and its Potential for Sediment Contamination

      Kennedy, Gregory; Kappel, William; U.S. Geological Survey (2000-01-01)
      Military-type matériel was recovered from the bottom of Lake Ontario near Rochester, N.Y., during bottom-trawl, fish-stock surveys at depths of 75 to 180 feet each year from 1978 through 1996. The recovered matériel included many shell detonator nose cones (2 inches in diameter by about 3.5 inches long); several electronic components; one corroded box of detonators; a corrugated container of mercury-filled capsules; and corroded batteries. Most of the recovered matériel has been identified as defective components of shell detonators (proximity-fuze assemblies) that were jettisoned in the lake to protect them from discovery during World War II. Side-scan SONAR, metal-detector, and ROV (remotely-operated-vehicle) surveys found no evidence of any large piles of matériel containing potentially hazardous, toxic, or polluting materials within the 17-square-mile study site. Many scattered magnetic anomalies were detected in this area, but chemical analysis of bottom sediment and of zebra- and quagga-mussel (Driessena spp.) tissue indicate that the concentrations of mercury and other heavy metals are within the previously documented ranges for Lake Ontario sediment. The failure of ROV videos and of SCUBA-diver surveys and probes of the lake bottom to locate any debris indicates that most, if not all, of the debris is scattered and buried under a layer of fine-grained sediment and, possibly, mussels.
    • Survey of Selected Organic Compounds in Aquifers of New York State Excluding Long Island

      Schroeder, Roy A.; Snavely, Deborah S.; USGS (1981-01-01)
      Samples from 56 wells at 49 sites in New York State, excluding Long Island, were analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry for the presence of organic compounds designated ' priority pollutants ' by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Most samples were taken from public-supply wells tapping shallow, permeable aquifers, the most susceptible to contamination. Analytical sensitivity reported by the laboratory for most compounds was less than 1 microgram per liter, but contamination during collection, shipping, or laboratory processing required that concentrations be about 10 micrograms per liter before the presence of a compound could be confirmed. Only a small percentage of wells sampled in this study was found to be contaminated. Where contamination is present, it probably results from point sources such as landfills or dumps rather than from general sources such as atmospheric deposition or proximity to urban centers. Two sites, Brewster in Putnam County and Olean in Cattaraugus County, showed clear evidence of contamination. Two other sites, Corning in Steuben County and Fulton in Oswego County, showed evidence of possible contamination. (USGS)
    • Survival Strategies for Physical Educators During Recessionary Times

      Schneider, Robert C.; Konukman, Ferman; Stier, William F.; The College at Brockport (2010-01-01)
      Physical education programs throughout the country are feeling the negative effects of what is proving to be the longest and most severe financial crisis in this country since the Great Depression. Potentially negative issues in physical education programs resulting from the current recession include: (a) low workplace morale, (b) the elimination of teaching as well as coaching positions, (c) an increase in physical education class size, and (d) a decline in resources (i.e., equipment and supplies). Physical education teachers must understand the current economic situation they find themselves in and react in an appropriate manner and timely fashion if they are to continue to develop professionally and maintain job security. It is recommended that physical education teachers: (a) remain visibly positive, (b) be versatile in what they can teach (and coach), (c) be able to teach and coach at different levels, (d) demonstrate large class teaching skills, (e) be innovative and flexible in all areas pertaining to their job, and (f) be viewed as competent, professional and innovative teachers by school authorities, parents, students and members of the community.
    • Susan B. Anthony: The Rhetorical Strategy of Her Constitutional Argument (1872)

      Miraglia, Ann; The College at Brockport (1989-08-01)
      Susan B. Anthony’s speech on "The Equal Right of All Citizens to the Ballot" marked a pivotal point in the woman's suffrage movement—whether women already had the right to vote or whether a constitutional amendment was needed to give it. It set forth for the consideration of the general public--those who may be called as the jury of her peers---the constitutional argument for woman's suffrage based on citizenship. In a sense, Anthony was taking her case directly to the people. This could affect the outcome of her trial particularly, and the woman's movement generally. Considering the importance of the disposition of this trial a study of the rhetorical situation and the rhetorical strategies Anthony used in this speech would be valuable. This study analyzes and evaluates the rhetorical strategies, such as the use of credibility, logical and emotional appeals and identification with audience values, used by Anthony in her speech in Monroe and Ontario counties prior to her trial for the crime of voting illegally.

    • Swipe, Tap, and Read: Research on E-book Tools, Features, and Student Engagement

      Robb, Susan; Winans, Amanda R.; The College at Brockport (2016-05-13)
      This study explores the digital tools and features that students had access to and interacted with while reading e-books on Raz-Kids. The goal was to use this information to understand how e-book reading impacted student motivation and engagement. This study was conducted for five weeks, and implemented three days per week with two first grade classes during Daily 5 or Reading Centers. I collected qualitative data by conducting a student survey, documenting the e-books that the student participants read and the digital tools and features that they used, recording field note observations, and conducting audio-recorded interviews with the student participants. Findings were derived from the research. The findings were a) the impact of Raz-Kids on reading engagement; b) first graders’ knowledge of e-book tools and features using Raz-Kids; and c) first graders’ access to and interaction with e-books outside of the classroom. Conclusions of this research study include that a) student reading experience is influenced by the Raz-Kids star system; b) the quantity of e-book tools lead to exploration; and c) the quality of e-book features impact student reading engagement.
