Teacher Stress Term Paper

… Teacher stress and burnout have both been acknowledged as being a problem for many years and researchers have examined this problem from various perspectives in the attempt to determine the causative factors of this stress and burnout among teachers. However, there is little research relating to the health and wellness factors among teachers which are associated with burnout and stress among teachers. The following review of literature examines these factors of wellness among teachers as related to stress and burnout and proposes a case study research examining these health related issues.


The work of Charlie Naylor (2001) entitled: "Teacher Workload and Stress: An International Perspective on Human Costs and Systemic Failure" reports the examination of international research and current publications of educational material…. [read more]

Education and Identity Term Paper

… Education and Identity

In his theory of identity formation, Chickering maintains that the key steps in forming one's identity take place during the four years one typically spends in college. Of course, these delineations should be taken as guidelines rather than universal truths. This is because students tend to move through the seven vectors at different rates according to their personal situations. In what follows, I hope to show the ways in which my own college life both conforms to and differs from the theories of Chickering. Experiencing true freedom and independence for the first time was overwhelming for me in a way, as it is for so many other freshman college students. By putting more concentration on my social activities outside of school rather…. [read more]

Effective Teaching Methods Term Paper

… ¶ … teaching a beginning reader, especially as late as secondary level, relevant material that reflects the individual's learning methodology and learning skill level needs to be seriously considered. First, students with autism have varying degrees of difficulty with communication, from severe or little to no interaction, to mild or the ability to receive information and provide a response or feedback. In order to teach reading to such a student, it is necessary that he/she is interested in labels, letters and words and has enough ability and skill level to look at these materials. Once a student recognizes that groups of letters form words that have meaning and groups of words form sentences that have meaning, it is possible to move to beginning reading material.….

Special Education Teacher Burnout Research Paper

… Special Education Teacher Burnout

High levels of stress are dangerous for all professions. In the field of special education it is responsible for much of the symptoms associated with variant levels of burnout. When teachers begin to experience burnout it is important for administrators to engage in remedial steps that reduce the individual and wider professional effect of burnout. Failing to successfully address this issue will increase attrition rates amongst special educators, thus making it more difficult for the persons who have decided to make it a vocation.

Teacher burnout is defined as a condition caused by depersonalization, exhaustion and a diminished sense of accomplishment (Schwab et al. 1986). The individual sees themselves as a cog in the larger machine and that their contribution is…. [read more]

Physical Education Teacher Burnout and PE Teacher Concerns Literature Review

… ¶ … Aaker (1991, p13) it is the general aim of all researchers not only to discover new information but as much as possible to build on what other people have already done in the field. This is particularly important as these works whether published or unpublished can serve as a cheaper source of mobilizing data. It also helps the researcher to put the issues under consideration into the right perspective. This researcher was not an exception. This part of the research examines the work of other researchers in order to broaden the frontiers of knowledge. In all instances adequate and due references are given for the purpose of future studies and subsequent verification of the facts.

Scope, Limitations and Delimitations

Retention of Special Education Teachers Analysis

While many areas in education are experiencing teacher shortages (McKnab, 1995; Merrow, 1999), historically, the retention of special education teachers in particular is a critical concern in many schools across the nation. The increasingly rapid pace of growth in the student population in special education will further exacerbate current teacher shortages (Sindelar & Rosenberg, 2005; Amos, 2004). As early as the 1980s, research has demonstrated that retention is integral to the problem (Otto and Arnold, 2005). Increased recruitment has the potential to be part of the solution, but more is needed. Even prior to the developing national teacher shortage, educators were voicing concerns about higher burnout and/or teacher attrition…. [read more]

Pedagogic Model: Teaching Technology in Special Education Dissertation

… " (Dougiamas, 1998) Such trivial constructivism, though, is the bedrock from which Glaserfelds more radical constructivism springs. He continues to state that because knowledge is constructed by the learner, and because no two learners are the same, knowledge itself is not absolute. There is a degree to which knowledge is an illusion, and every individual constructs their own conception of reality which (while susceptible to the demands of "real" or normal reality) does not necessarily align with the normal paradigm. Constructivism does embrace this relativistic and existential approach to reality, but it also holds as a primary value the idea of constraint which enables the thinkers to participate in social interaction and mainstream reality.

One interesting area of constructionist theory is…. [read more]

Relationship of School Facilities Conditions to Academic Achievement and Teacher Retention Term Paper

… Relationship of School Facilities Conditions to Academic Achievement and Teacher Retention

"The Walls Speak: The Interplay of Quality Facilities, School Climate, and Student Achievement" states that entering into recently public discourse is "the condition of our nation's schools." (nd) This work relates that a "growing body of literature...provides evidence to a link between school building adequacy and students achievement. One examined link between school facilities and student achievement may be school climate. School climate may be a mediating variable, explaining, at least in part, the deleterious impact that poor school facilities has on learning." (nd) This work states that of all the schools in the United States at least "twenty-one percent...are more than fifty years old and another fifty percent are at least thirty years…. [read more]

Social Perception of Special Education Students Identified as Learning Disabled Thesis

… Perception of LD students

The development of special education in many ways has been relatively moderate since the beginning of legal reforms that attempted to provide equal and adequate education for those with diagnosable learning disabilities. Special education, historically has been isolated from other "regular" instruction and can be subsidiary or primary sources of education. In the past many of these students (and their teachers) were isolated to special education classes that were dominated by limited expectations and skill level development that was hopefully designed to meet the needs and abilities of individuals with learning disabilities. A more recent trend has stressed inclusion of these students into the regular classroom, as much as possible to reduce exclusionary situations. This trend has both positive and negative….

Ethical Dilemmas in Special Research Paper

… Rose-Ackerman (1982) follows the same theme but focusing specifically on the ethical issues entailed overall with questions of "mental retardation" and policies intended to promote or foster their so-called "normalization." She notes with some irony the origins of the present system of special education in a widespread societal examination in the early 1960s of the overall condition of care for those with special needs, which to a certain degree corresponded with the overall movements in the time period for civil rights asserted on behalf of previously dispossessed minority groups -- in the same way that this movement had initially proceeded for African-Americans in the domain of education, so was the condition in the 1960s when many with special needs, as Rose-Ackerman notes, "had been excluded….

Burnout and Technical College Counselors Research Proposal

… Burnout and Technical College Counselors

This research proposal outlines the background, theoretical and research foundations, as well as the methodological framework, of a study that will investigate the prevalence of burnout in counselors within the sixteen (16) colleges in the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS). The construct of burnout for the purposes of this study is defined as emotional exhaustion, depersonalization or cynicism and inefficacy of a counselor. While all professions have some level of stress involved, the research quickly emphasizes that school counselors in general and those at 2-year institutions tend to experience inordinately high levels of work-related stress that may contribute to a higher incidence of burnout. This research suggests that there is a distinct difference between counselor burnout as a function of…. [read more]

Physical Fitness in Children Research Proposal

… The results of studies on aerobic capacity and fitness in children and adolescents suggest that physical fitness needs to be placed in the lower priority than developing healthy exercise habits that will continue into an adult. As children grow they will gain size and strength. Children were found to be able to increase muscular strength in response to resistance training and these responses were found to be similar to that found in adults (Fisher, 2009).

Measures of short boost fitness, including the Wingate bike test and 40-50 meter sprints demonstrated that children exhibit lower scores in short burst of this than adults. This phenomenon is not completely understood, but it is suspected to be associated with limited utilization of the anaerobic glycolytic energy pathway, shorter…. [read more]

Elementary Principal and Job Stress Term Paper

… ¶ … Elementary School Principals and Job Stress

Certainly, any type of jobs carries with it some level of stress, but it would seem that elementary school principals in particular are prone to stressful conditions simply by virtue of the unique exigencies of their positions. Irate and incensed parents, changing boards of education, politicians with personal agendas, teachers, support staff - and the students themselves of course - all combine to present the typical elementary school principal with enough stressful situations to challenge anyone's ability to cope, but cope they must. Unfortunately, things appear to be getting even worse in many regions of the country where a paucity of qualified elementary school principals combined with rising elementary school enrollments has caused increasing concern among educators….

Student Body Size on School Term Paper

… Where the more graduating seniors that enter college after graduation is a recognized factor of the success of both the individual student and the school from which he or she came. Though college attendance rates have long been a tool used to asses the success of programs supporting or dealing with large numbers of students at risk fro academic failure it is also a good indicator of the general success of a school. (Fashola, & Slavin 1998)

It was recognized twenty years ago that there is not enough evidence to suggest that consolidating schools is a good idea, "There is no strong empirical base to support the assumptions and assertions of school and district consolidation advocates. This article reviews and analyzes this body of evidence…. [read more]

Time Management There Are Many Different Things Term Paper

… Time Management

There are many different things that can cause stress for the college student. Managing their time effectively and having satisfaction with the leisure time that they have are issues that must be addressed by many college students (McKean & Misra, 2000). Academic stress is also extremely important and this is possibly one of the largest issues that college students face, but this can be lessened by learning to manage time appropriately (McKean & Misra, 2000). Nationwide there has been a strong increase in the stress that college students are feeling and many believe that this trend is rather disturbing.

There are several different categories that this stress takes and these include financial, health-related, academic, and self-imposed (McKean & Misra, 2000). Those that are…. [read more]

Educational Gap Between Whites and People of Color Research Paper

… Educational Gap Between Whites and People of Color

In modern America, education plays a critical role in the provision of opportunities for individuals to move up the social ladder. Anderson and Taylor (2010) posit that education is a critical component of social mobility. It allows persons to access better paying jobs and thus the more education an individual possesses the more likely they are to escape the ravages of poverty and create wealth. Thus as a value acquiring an education has become the mantra of most if not all politicians and societal leaders. Because of educations pivotal role it is therefore critical that any structures and policies that impede the educational progress of citizens be given generous consideration. The observed gap between whites and people…. [read more]

Social Work Dimension Term Paper

… The question can be asked about who will take 'unwanted' children in a market-led system where individual schools have the right to choose the students they want. An example of this can be seen in this illustration, little girl was sexually molested and developed some behavioral problems including the fact that she was being bullied by classmates who knew about her molestation. The school district did not offer care or support, but told the mother she was acting out. The mother took her to another school that wanted her to put her in some emotional behavioral classroom where she would be the only girl among twelve boys. Finally, the school kicked her out. Where should this child get her education? Which market-led school should take…. [read more]

The re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in 2002, commonly known as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), increased the accountability of public schools throughout the United States, holding them individually responsible for the education levels attained by their students as measured by high stakes tests developed and administered at the state level. Administrators responded by developing programs targeted at increasing students' test scores. One program considered by administrators is the doubling of class time in math and English for students that are at risk of not succeeding. This paper studies the viability of such a program as adopted in an urban Northern New Jersey high…. [read more]

How Does Continuing Education for Nurses Impact Productivity

The nursing community stalwartly emphasizes the importance of continuing education and suggests that it should be an important part of the nursing profession, whether legally required or voluntary.

This emphasis is shared by the majority of the medical community. One of the primary reasons that nurses, nurse managers, and nurse educators believe that continuing education is important is because they link continued education to an increase in productivity. However, the study of productivity is very difficult, with one of the main problems being that managers and nurses tend to measure productivity in very different ways. However, they do seem to agree that an increase in productivity means being able to increase the…. [read more]

What Factors Influence a Youth's Decision to Withdrawal From a Sport Research Proposal


To Have Fun"

The number one reason a youth relates that he/she participates in a sport "is to have fun" Seefeldt, Ewing, and Walk (1992; cited by Hedstrom and Gould, 2004, p. 21) purport. Motives which influence a youth's decision to participate in sports include a number of other reasons, often multiple and include the: "interplay of skill development, physical development, and social interaction" (Ibid.).

Regarding a youth's motives to participate in school-sponsored sports, the motive "to win" ranks number 8. Youth who participated in sports outside of those their school sponsored, albeit, did not even list the reason, "to win" as a reason they decided to participate in sports. Research repeatedly reveals that a number…. [read more]

Stress Management in the Caregiver Research Paper

… A study published by the Nuffield Trust (Williams et al. 1998) highlighted what had long been a subject of interest in the caregiver media: the levels of stress, sickness, absenteeism and burnout among professional caregivers. This report, from an authoritative and reputable organisation, brought together much of the prevailing evidence about the alarming state of the government funded workforce, which, despite a growing independent sector, is still responsible for giving over 90% of health caregiver. The report states that 'for the sake of good management and from simple compassion, both we and the Government should view these findings with due alarm, and accept shared responsibility for working quickly together to develop a program for action.

Crowdsourcing Techniques in Call Centers Dissertation

… [EXCERPT] . . . promising phenomenon that lends itself to call centers' ability to improve their own and their other business units' efficiency is the employment of crowdsourcing. Crowdsourcing is an online, distributed problem-solving and production model already in use by for-profit organizations such as Threadless, iStockphoto, and InnoCentive. Speculation in Weblogs and wisdom of crowds theory assumes a diverse crowd engaged in crowdsourcing labor. Crowdsourcing is the act of taking a job traditionally performed by a designated agent (usually an employee) and outsourcing it to an undefined, generally large group of people in the form of an open call. Furthermore, and as crowdsourcing is in some ways similar to open-source software production, prior research suggests that individuals in the crowd likely participate in crowdsourcing…. [read more]

Wooden a Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court Book Report

The legacy of John Wooden extends well beyond any of his games, because the philosophy that guided his actions as both player and coach includes insights into success above and beyond the game of basketball. In his 1997 book Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and Off the Court, written with Steve Jamison, Wooden offers insights from his life, demonstrating how the same ideals that helped him to become the only person to enter the College Basketball Hall of Fame as both player and coach also helped him through his personal life (Forck, 2010, p. 20). By comparing the advice and insight Wooden offers in his book with contemporary sports psychology, it is possible to identify a few relatively simple ideas that…. [read more]

Sports Injuries Competitive Sports Participation Term Paper

… Therefore, adults should take a positive approach, set reasonable expectations of their children's physical and psychosocial abilities and learn to control their emotions.

It is imperative for parents to remember and emphasize children's motives for sport participation (having fun, being with friends, learning skills, improving health and fitness, etc.) and not to substitute them with their own motives (winning, earning social prestige, pursuing sport career, etc.)

Organization / Administration

Sport administrators should have a thorough understanding of structural and functional differences that exist between children and adults and design sport programs that are safe in both training and competition.

Special education / certification programs (clinics, seminars) have to be organized and systematically implemented for coaches working with the children of the defined age group.

Leadership Principles in Sports Profile of a Dream Team Term Paper

One of the ways to improve the way a sports team works as a united whole rather than each player working as a separate entity (which will not build a successful team), is to look at what builds teamwork in general. Researchers have been studying this leadership issue specifically as it relates to organizations since the 1980s, because companies realize that teamwork is essential in order to be competitive in a global, fast-changing world.

There are noticeable similarities between sports and work situations. Both rely on rules or boundaries that must be followed. Sports teams, similar to ones at work, require an understanding of responsibilities -- who must do what and when. Sports and work teams both have a list of players who…. [read more]
