It is sometimes useful to display the changes occurring either spatially or temporally in the temperature-salinity relationship of a type of water. Such can be achieved by constructing a T-S or 0-S section in which the isohalines are plotted with temperature and horizontal distance being the coordinates. In regions where no change of 0-S occurs along a section of stations,

NCAR CSM ocean model by the NCAR oceanography section. Technical note  

SciTech Connect

This technical note documents the ocean component of the NCAR Climate System Model (CSM). The ocean code has been developed from the Modular Ocean Model (version 1.1) which was developed and maintained at the NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton. As a tribute to Mike Cox, and because the material is still relevant, the first four sections of this technical note are a straight reproduction from the GFDL Technical Report that Mike wrote in 1984. The remaining sections document how the NCAR Oceanography Section members have developed the MOM 1.1 code, and how it is forced, in order to produce the NCAR CSM Ocean Model.

Exposure to teachers smoking and adolescent smoking behaviour: analysis of cross sectional data from Denmark  

PubMed Central

Objective: To determine whether adolescent smoking behaviour is associated with their perceived exposure to teachers or other pupils smoking at school, after adjustment for exposure to smoking at home, in school, and best friends smoking. Design: Logistic regression analysis of cross sectional data from students in Denmark. Subjects: 1515 grade 9 students (mean age 15.8) from 90 classes in 48 Danish schools. Outcome measure: Self reported smoking behaviour; daily smoking and heavy smoking, defined as those smoking more than 20 cigarettes per week. Results: Of the students in this study, 62% of boys and 60% of girls reported being exposed to teachers smoking outdoors on the school premises. The proportion of boys and girls reporting to have been exposed to teachers smoking inside the school building were 86% and 88%, respectively. Furthermore, 91% of boys and 92% of girls reported that they had seen other students smoking outdoors on the school premises. Adolescents' perceived exposure to teachers smoking outdoors on the school premises was significantly associated with daily smoking, having adjusted for sex, exposure to teachers smoking indoors at school and pupils smoking outdoors at school, as well as the smoking behaviour of mother, father, and best friend (odds ratio (OR) 1.8, 95% confidence interval 1.2 to 2.8). Adolescents' perceived exposure to teachers smoking inside the school building was not associated with daily smoking (OR 0.9, 95% CI 0.5 to 1.6) and perceived exposure to pupils smoking outdoors was not associated with daily smoking (adjusted OR 1.5, 95% CI 0.5 to 4.4). There were similar findings with heavy smoking as the outcome variable. Conclusions: Teachers smoking during school hours is associated with adolescent smoking. This finding has implications for future tobacco prevention strategies in schools in many countries with liberal smoking policies where it might provide support for those working to establish smokefree schools.

Notes on an Outreach Forum for High School Chemistry Teachers - An Unexpected Success  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Public realization in the United States of deficiencies in understanding basic facts and processes in science and mathematics is mounting. Teachers in these areas at all levels are key players in the challenges to come. This paper describes the activities of one small group of high school chemistry teachers as they have explored these challenges. The group of approximately sixteen has met regularly on the campus of California State University, Long Beach during the past seven years. The meetings (two or three each semester) are informal three-hour sessions over the dinner hour (box dinners are provided). A feature of each meeting is discussion of articles selected from the Journal of Chemical Education including retesting with variation of "Tested Demonstrations". Subscriptions to the Journal are provided to members. No fees are charged nor course credit given. The article outlines many of the program features, describes recruitment and changes in membership over time, examines possibilities for replication and emphasizes the great desire of secondary level chemistry teachers for exchange of ideas with peers. It explores the question "what did we do right?" in launching this successful forum.

Notes on the application of microwaves for antigen retrieval in paraffin and plastic tissue sections.  

PubMed

In formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue enhanced or de novo immunostaining can be obtained by microwave boiling of sections in a metal salt or buffer solution. In this paper this new technique is reviewed and important factors influencing final results are discussed. Microwave antigen retrieval can also be applied for immunohistochemistry on plastic GMA sections. Here the action of the microwave method is probably mainly due to breaking the bonds between GMA and proteins prohibiting immunostaining. The microwave methods do not require trypsin treatment.

Effects of filtering methods on muscle and fat cross-sectional area measurement by pQCT: a technical note.  

PubMed

Peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) is most commonly used for bone density and morphology assessment of the limbs, but it can also be used for soft tissue area quantification by segmenting regions representing different tissues. Scanning and analyzing cross-sectional areas of larger thighs present a special challenge due to increased statistical noise created from fewer detected x-ray photons. The purpose of this technical note is to compare total, muscle and fat cross-sectional area (CSA) measurements of the midthigh with Stratec 3000 pQCT scans using no filter, a weak smoothing filter and a strong smoothing filter to CSA measurements of midthigh MRI scans analyzed by Image J, a public domain image processing program. Nine healthy men and women participated in this study. CSAs did not differ significantly between MRI and strongly filtered pQCT images with per cent differences ranging from -3.1% for muscle to +6.5% for fat. The per cent difference in muscle CSA values between MRI and pQCT with the weak filter (-24.0 ± 38.0%) or no filter (-44.9 ± 22.7%) was strongly related to total thigh CSA (r = 0.78-0.92, p < 0.05). We propose that the midthigh can be assessed for soft tissue area measurements with pQCT, provided that strong smoothing filter is utilized. PMID:22048193

Effect of an inservice on the teachers' knowledge of general school law, Section 504, and the Meta Consent Decree  

Microsoft Academic Search

It is generally assumed by educators that inservice training will make a significant difference in teacher knowledge of topics related to education. This investigation addressed that assumption by examining the effects of various factors, e.g., amount and timing of inservice training, upon teacher knowledge of educational law. Of special interest was teacher knowledge of the law as it pertained to

Good Clinical Teachers Likely to be Specialist Role Models: Results from a Multicenter Cross-Sectional Survey  

PubMed Central

Context Medical educational reform includes enhancing role modelling of clinical teachers. This requires faculty being aware of their role model status and performance. We developed the System for Evaluation of Teaching Qualities (SETQ) to generate individualized feedback on previously defined teaching qualities and role model status for faculty in (non) academic hospitals. Objectives (i) To examine whether teaching qualities of faculty were associated with their being seen as a specialist role model by residents, and (ii) to investigate whether those associations differed across residency years and specialties. Methods & Materials Cross-sectional questionnaire survey amongst 549 Residents of 36 teaching programs in 15 hospitals in the Netherlands. The main outcome measure was faculty being seen as specialist role models by residents. Statistical analyses included (i) Pearson's correlation coefficients and (ii) multivariable logistic generalized estimating equations to assess the (adjusted) associations between each of five teaching qualities and ‘being seen as a role model’. Results 407 residents completed a total of 4123 evaluations of 662 faculty. All teaching qualities were positively correlated with ‘being seen as a role model’ with correlation coefficients ranging from 0.49 for ‘evaluation of residents’ to 0.64 for ‘learning climate’ (P<0.001). Faculty most likely to be seen as good role models were those rated highly on ‘feedback’ (odds ratio 2.91, 95% CI: 2.41–3.51), ‘a professional attitude towards residents’ (OR 2.70, 95% CI: 2.34–3.10) and ‘creating a positive learning climate’ (OR 2.45, 95% CI: 1.97–3.04). Results did not seem to vary much across residency years. The relative strength of associations between teaching qualities and being seen as a role model were more distinct when comparing specialties. Conclusions Good clinical educators are more likely to be seen as specialist role models for most residents.

CyberNotes  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Is my network secure? Are there holes in our security? If you're directly or indirectly responsible for maintaining computers connected to the Internet, those are questions you've probably asked yourself from time to time. Unfortunately, certain answers are difficult to come by, considering the rapid rate at which networks and operating systems are evolving and the staggering complexity of some of the software involved. Any resource that can bring you closer to that certainty is worth a look. CyberNotes, maintained by the National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC), is one of the wide array of useful security resources available. Given their mandate "to detect, deter, assess, warn of, respond to, and investigate computer intrusions and unlawful acts," NIPC is obviously concerned with tracking and alerting system administrators to potential security holes, and CyberNotes is one of their primary tools to achieve that goal. CyberNotes features an appropriately detailed list of recently discovered bugs and security holes, including the software involved, information about potential patches or workarounds, and a rating indicating the severity of the problem. The newsletter's "Trends" section discusses specific trends in attack techniques and origination points and security vulnerabilities that have recently been in frequent use by intruders. In general, CyberNotes can be a very valuable tool if hands-on computer security is part of your job, and it's worth browsing if you are indirectly involved in any fashion with the maintenance of networked computers.

Addressing the Teacher Qualification Gap: Exploring the Use and Efficacy of Incentives to Reward Teachers for Tough Assignments  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

This paper explores the policy options that might be used to address the distribution of teachers across students. The first section discusses findings on teacher preferences, the dynamics of the teacher labor market, and whether we should care about the resulting distribution of teachers across students. The next section focuses on the magnitude of teacher inequity, followed by an exploration of how inequities develop and a discussion of what we know about the various policy options designed to address teacher inequities. Based on this information, the final section focuses on the politics of reform and makes policy recommendations for addressing the teacher qualification gap.

Science Teacher Retention: Mentoring and Renewal  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

âSome forty percent of all new science teachers leave the profession within five years, and too many science teachers are wedded to their textbooks and the routines they acquired during their collegiate years." What can be done to retain new science teachers and reinvigorate more experienced science teachers? Allow Science Teacher Retention: Mentoring and Renewal to âmentorâ you as you reach toward this lofty but attainable goal. For this book, Jack Rhoton and Patricia Bowers assembled some of the countryâs most noted science educators and asked them to offer ideas to resolve the problems of science teacher retention and renewal. Their suggestions are designed to keep the brightest and most motivated new teachers in the profession and help all science teachers to continue to learn and to treat their own profession like science itselfâthat is, by basing it on questions, suggesting answers, and using their interests and abilities to test the validity of these answers.

Work-related respiratory problems in industrial arts teachers.  

PubMed

Because of reports of respiratory complaints in Swedish industrial arts (IA) teachers, a cross-sectional study was performed on 130 IA teachers in Stockholm to study the relationship between the work environment and health, and especially the aforementioned complaints. One hundred and twelve other school employees served as control subjects. Sex, age, and smoking habit distribution were similar in the two groups. All subjects answered a questionnaire about their health problems, and the IA teachers answered questions about their work environment. The work environment consisted of many old and neglected workshops (hereafter called shops). Compared to the control subjects, the IA teachers had more complaints in respect of the skin, eyes, nose, throat, and lower airways--including chronic bronchitis (OR 12.4, 95% confidence interval 2.95-110.5). A higher occurrence of symptoms existed in shops with bad ventilation and dust-spreading machines and in shops where dust-spreading cleanup methods were used. A suspected interaction between smoking and work environment was noted for some symptoms, especially impaired smell and chronic bronchitis. In conclusion, several factors in the work environment were identified as risk factors for health. Identification of these risk factors should result in a program to reduce the health problems in the work environment. PMID:7672854

Attitudes towards homeless people among emergency department teachers and learners: a cross-sectional study of medical students and emergency physicians  

PubMed Central

Background Medical students’ attitudes and beliefs about homeless people may be shaped by the attitudes of their teachers and one of the most common sites for learning about homeless patients is the emergency department. The objective of this study was to determine if medical students in the preclinical and clinical years and emergency medicine faculty and residents have different attitudes and beliefs about homeless people. Methods The Health Professional Attitudes Toward the Homeless Inventory (HPATHI), was administered to all medical students, and emergency medicine physicians and residents at a large academic health sciences center in Canada. The HPATHI examines attitudes, interest and confidence on a 5-point Likert scale. Differences among groups were examined using the Kruskal Wallis test and Pearson’s chi-square test. Results The HPATHI was completed by 371 individuals, for an overall response rate of 55%. Analysis of dichotomized median and percentage results revealed 5/18 statements were significant by both methods. On the attitudes subscales physicians and residents as a group were more negative for 2/9 statements and on the confidence subscale more positive for 1/4 statements. The interest subscale achieved overall statistical significance with decreased positive responses among physicians and residents compared to medical students in 2/5 statements. Conclusion This study revealed divergences in attitudes, interests and beliefs among medical students and emergency medicine physicians and residents. We offer strategies for training interventions and systemic support of emergency faculty. Emergency medicine physicians can examine their role in the development of medical students through both formal and informal teaching in the emergency department.

PubMed Central

Operative notes contain rich information about techniques, instruments, and materials used in procedures. To assist development of effective information extraction (IE) techniques for operative notes, we investigated the sublanguage used to describe actions within the operative report ‘procedure description’ section. Deep parsing results of 362,310 operative notes with an expanded Stanford parser using the SPECIALIST Lexicon resulted in 200 verbs (92% coverage) including 147 action verbs. Nominal action predicates for each action verb were gathered from WordNet, SPECIALIST Lexicon, New Oxford American Dictionary and Stedman’s Medical Dictionary. Coverage gaps were seen in existing lexical, domain, and semantic resources (Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) Metathesaurus, SPECIALIST Lexicon, WordNet and FrameNet). Our findings demonstrate the need to construct surgical domain-specific semantic resources for IE from operative notes.

National study of master teachers in deaf education: implications for teacher education.  

PubMed

After an extensive review of relevant literature, the investigators developed a questionnaire on teacher characteristics and behaviors in relation to master teachers and distributed it electronically to deaf education professionals. The questionnaire recipients represented administrators, experienced teachers (e.g., those with 3 or more years' experience), and college and university faculty responsible for preparing teachers of the deaf. Follow-up interactive interviews were conducted with representatives of each constituency. Considerable similarities were noted in the priorities assigned across the three different constituencies, including a value placed on strong communication skills, having a passion about teaching, being collaborative, remaining current in the field, helping students become independent learners, and employing cognitive strategies. Analyses of responses by constituency are provided, along with recommendations for action, particularly for teacher education programs that are intent on graduating more teachers with master teacher potential.

Cross-Sectional Study of Unmet Mental Health Need in 5- to 7-Year Old Latino Children in the United States: Do Teachers and Parents Make a Difference in Service Utilization?  

PubMed Central

The aim of the study is to examine the rates of mental health service utilization in young Latino children of immigrants in relation to maternal and teacher reports of child mental health need. Specific knowledge is lacking about gaps in service utilization among young Latino children, the fastest growing and possibly the most underserved segment of the US child population. The associations of mental health service utilization (Service Assessment for Children and Adolescents) and mental health need (clinical levels of internalizing, externalizing, or total problems reported by mothers [Child Behavior Checklist] and teachers [Teacher's Report Form]) were examined in a community sample of young Latino children of immigrants (n = 228; mean age = 6) and compared across mothers’ and teachers’ responses. Mother–teacher agreement was also studied. Sixty-five children (28.5 %) had a mental health need; most (76.9 %) of these received no services. For all types of mental health need, service utilization was more likely when need was reported by mothers rather than teachers (p = .03). Teachers’ reports were not associated with service utilization. Mother–teacher agreement was low for externalizing (r = .23; p ? 0.01) and total problems (r = .21; p ? 0.05), and nonsignificant for internalizing problems. This study is the first in the United States to document, in such a young Latino group, high rates of unmet need comparable to those among older Latino youth; low or no mother–teacher agreement on which children had a mental health need; low utilization of school-based services; and a lack of association between service utilization and teacher-reported mental health need—both for externalizing and internalizing problems. These findings suggest that schools are not effectively leveraging mental health services for young Latino children. Potential factors responsible for the findings are discussed.

Lecture notes for criticality safety  

SciTech Connect

These lecture notes for criticality safety are prepared for the training of Department of Energy supervisory, project management, and administrative staff. Technical training and basic mathematics are assumed. The notes are designed for a two-day course, taught by two lecturers. Video tapes may be used at the options of the instructors. The notes provide all the materials that are necessary but outside reading will assist in the fullest understanding. The course begins with a nuclear physics overview. The reader is led from the macroscopic world into the microscopic world of atoms and the elementary particles that constitute atoms. The particles, their masses and sizes and properties associated with radioactive decay and fission are introduced along with Einstein's mass-energy equivalence. Radioactive decay, nuclear reactions, radiation penetration, shielding and health-effects are discussed to understand protection in case of a criticality accident. Fission, the fission products, particles and energy released are presented to appreciate the dangers of criticality. Nuclear cross sections are introduced to understand the effectiveness of slow neutrons to produce fission. Chain reactors are presented as an economy; effective use of the neutrons from fission leads to more fission resulting in a power reactor or a criticality excursion. The six-factor formula is presented for managing the neutron budget. This leads to concepts of material and geometric buckling which are used in simple calculations to assure safety from criticality. Experimental measurements and computer code calculations of criticality are discussed. To emphasize the reality, historical criticality accidents are presented in a table with major ones discussed to provide lessons-learned. Finally, standards, NRC guides and regulations, and DOE orders relating to criticality protection are presented.

Such is the case of natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES). NOTES has yet to prove its value in patients. However, having challenged one of the most fundamental and deeply entrenched dogmas in surgery and endoscopy, many of us feel that "we will never be the same again." In this article I will discuss the implications of this paradigm shift and suggest strategies for both gastroenterologists and surgeons that will allow us to test its full potential. PMID:17640587

Inventions of Note  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The Inventions of Note Sheet Music Collection was created in 1997 by the Lewis Music Library at MIT. It includes popular songs and piano compositions that portray technologies as revealed through song texts and cover art. As the introductory notes state, "The initial appearance of inventions such as the automobile, airplane, radio, and telephone created a myriad of responses in American society ranging from excitement and delight to anxiety and scorn." The collection includes 50 pieces of sheet music, ranging from "The Bell Telephone Girl" to "The Wireless Man." This last piece contains lyrics like "With his brave steady hand/keeps in touch with the land." It's interesting to ruminate on what songs today might celebrate in video game systems, wireless mobile devices, and laptop computers. For students of the history of technology and popular culture, this site is quite a find and perhaps it will inspire a few sing-a-long sessions for those with a talent for vocalizing.

The act of having students commit to an outcome makes them think. It is different than oral brainstorming because everyone is accountable. Students may not volunteer exactly what they are thinking. Like everyone else, they may just summarize. Students deserve an opportunity to explain their answers, even if they seem far-fetched. This selection includes notes from the Field Editor of Science and Children on assessment tools and strategies.

Nuer Field Notes  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The complicated process of creating meaningful field notes is a problem that vexes many scholars who rely on these important primary documents, including anthropologists, geographers, and sociologists. Currently, there aren't many websites that feature digital archives of fieldnotes, but this joint project undertaken by Indiana University and the University of Michigan is one step in the right direction. The essential goal of the project is to make the linguistic field notes recorded by Eleanor Vandevort (a missionary and researcher) in the South Sudan between 1949 and 1963 available on the web. The digital archive succeeds mightily, as it includes the linguistic field notes, and also photographs from her work there, various letters from the field, and a biographical sketch of her work there in the South Sudan. Along with these materials, visitors can read Vandevort's book about her time in Africa, titled _A Leopard Tamed_ and some fine essays on the history of colonial and missionary linguistics in the Sudan by Edward Miner.

Editor's Note: Literacy Skills  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Our science and literacy issue is always one of the most popular issues of the year, and we're betting this jam-packed issue will be no exception. Why? There are many probable reasons. Many elementary teachers are more comfortable with teaching science literacy so they look for ways to use their strengths. No Child Left Behind legislation has put the spotlight on literacy in the elementary grades, sometimes pushing science (and social studies and PE and art) out of the busy day. Teaching science with literacy skills may be one way to convey important science skills while still teaching and reinforcing literacy.

Effect of field notes on confidence and perceived competence  

PubMed Central

Abstract Objective To evaluate the effectiveness of field notes in assessing teachers’ confidence and perceived competence, and the effect of field notes on residents’ perceptions of their development of competence. Design A faculty and resident survey completed 5 years after field notes were introduced into the program. Setting Five Dalhousie University family medicine sites—Fredericton, Moncton, and Saint John in New Brunswick, and Halifax and Sydney in Nova Scotia. Participants First- and second-year family medicine residents (as of May 2009) and core family medicine faculty. Main outcome measures Residents’ outcome measures included beliefs about the effects of field notes on performance, learning, reflection, clinical skills development, and feedback received. Faculty outcome measures included beliefs about the effect of field notes on guiding feedback, teaching, and reflection on clinical practice. Results Forty of 88 residents (45.5%) participated. Fifteen of 50 faculty (30.0%) participated, which only permitted a discussion of trends for faculty. Residents believed field note–directed feedback reinforced their performance (81.1%), helped them learn (67.6%), helped them reflect on practice and learning (66.7%), and focused the feedback they received, making it more useful (62.2%) (P < .001 for all); 63.3% believed field note–directed feedback helped with clinical skills development (P < .01). Faculty believed field notes helped to provide more focused (86.7%) and effective feedback (78.6%), improved teaching (75.0%), and encouraged reflection on their own clinical practice (73.3%). Conclusion Most surveyed residents believed field note use improved the feedback they received and helped them to develop competence through improved performance, learning, reflection, and clinical skills development. The trends from faculty information suggested faculty believed field notes were an effective teaching, feedback, and reflection tool.

GSA's Teacher Advocate Program - getting teachers to be advocates for Earth Science  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

After parents, teachers are they most influential people when it comes to students leaning about their world. However, when it comes to Earth science, the vast majority of our teachers have little to no Earth science training and lack the resources to run exciting and challenging classes on Earth science topics for their students. The Geological Society of America (GSA) is committed to reversing that trend by developing easy to use resources and training teachers on how to use them in their classrooms. Through a program called the Teacher Advocate Program (TAP), GSA has already had teachers using Earth science materials with over 6 million students (1.3 million a year). Formally established in 2003, TAP aims to raise the number of teachers who are advocates for geoscience in their classrooms, schools and school districts by providing those teachers with: Low cost teaching resources that provide them with teaching notes, teaching materials (images, models etc) and usable class room activities. Low cost training opportunities for teachers on how to use TAP materials. In-field experiences for teachers to provide them with teaching materials and insights.

Preparing Teachers  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

For too long colleges and universities have avoided looking critically at their teacher-preparation programs, choosing instead to be comfortable with âbusiness as usual.â We need a dramatic shift in the role of these institutions. It begins when the incoming freshman arrives on campus and does not end four years later. We need to âerase the slateâ and redirect our focus on the real goal of achieving increased student achievement in our K-12 schools. My presentation will include a challenge to all of us to re-think who we are preparing science teachers for our nation's very serious task of significantly increasing student achievement and a roadmap for successful change.

[Teachers attitudes towards smoke-free regulations].  

PubMed

The aim of the study was to analyze the teachers attitudes towards smoke-free regulations in public places. The study population consisted of 348 teachers. Among the study participants the questionnaire was conducted including socio-demographic characteristic and smoking profile. Detailed information was collected about teachers' opinion on smoke-free public places. About 13% of study participants declared current daily tobacco smoking and 5% smoked occasionally. Almost all study participants (90%-93%) are in favor of smoking ban in offices, health and educational buildings and sport facilities. 83% supported smoking ban in workplaces. Most of the teachers were in favor of smoke-free restaurants (71%) but they were less likely to support smoke-free bars, pubs and clubs (55%). The percentage of teachers who supported total ban on smoking in the presence of pregnant women was 94% and in the presence of children 93%. About 27%of the study subjects did not accept the concept of raising taxes on tobacco. Total ban on tobacco advertising was accepted by 70% of teachers and support for pictorial warning on tobacco packages declared 75% of participants. About 45% of study population indicated that they noted other teachers smoked at school (where smoking is banned). For students such percentages were even higher (76%). It is important to strengthen educational and informational activities to increase public awareness on health consequences of active and passive smoking and the ways of elimination of such exposures.

Teacher Training and Pre-service Primary Teachers' Self-Efficacy for Science Teaching  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This study focuses on the improvement of pre-service teachers' self-efficacy for teaching science by including science courses within the teacher training program. Knowing how efficacy beliefs change over time and what factors influence the development by pre-service primary teachers of positive science teaching efficacy beliefs may be useful for teacher training universities, so that they can adapt their curriculum to accommodate these factors. Participants included 292 pre-service primary teachers, a cross-sectional sample from two different universities in the Netherlands across the four different years of study in the training program. Based upon our results, we conclude that the science teaching self-efficacy of pre-service teachers, in particular, improved during years 1 and 2, and not during years 3 and 4. Higher levels of self-rated subject-matter knowledge and science teaching experience in primary schools both contributed to higher levels of personal self-efficacy for science teaching. Differences at the university level in courses taken during the first year between science content courses and science methods courses also influenced the pre-service teachers' development of science teaching self-efficacy. After their first year, the pre-service teachers from the university with science content courses had significantly higher self-efficacy than pre-service teachers from the university that offered science methods courses. After the second year of teacher training, however, this difference in self-efficacy was no longer present.

The term has since been applied to anyone fearful or resistent to new technology. In this section the editor remarks on her once suspicious claims of new computer technology. But just like the exaggerated claims of some technology proponents, these fears are unfounded. Technology is broader than computer use.

Teachers' in-flight thinking in inclusive classrooms.  

PubMed

This article explores the thinking of five junior high school teachers as they teach students with learning difficulties in inclusive classrooms. Insights into the ways these teachers think about students in these inclusive secondary school contexts were obtained through triangulating data from semistructured interviews, stimulated recall of in-flight thinking, and researcher field notes. Exploration of teachers' in-flight thinking (i.e., the thinking of teachers as they engaged in classroom teaching) revealed a knowledge of individual students that was not related to categorical notions of learning difficulties. This research has implications for the practice of teaching in inclusive settings as well as for teacher preparation. Specifically, it suggests that attention to student differences should be replaced by the development of teachers' knowledge about individual students as a rich source of practical knowledge and the basis for developing effective instructional techniques.

"The purpose of this note is to demonstrate in a simple model that an individual's migration from a small town to a large city may be rationalized purely by a consumption motive, rather than the motive of obtaining a higher income. More specifically, it is shown that in a large city an individual may derive a higher utility from spending a given amount of income than in a small town." A formal model is first developed that includes the principal forces at work and is then illustrated using a graphic example. The theoretical and empirical issues raised are considered in the concluding section. PMID:12312600

For a plethora of information on mammals in Washington state and beyond, check out this Webpage from the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture (University of Washington-Seattle). In the Mammals of Washington section of the Website, nine mammalian orders are described in 148 separate species's accounts. Each account gives the natural history of the species (characteristics, diet, behaviors, habitat), as well as its geographic distribution, and in some cases, phylogeography. In the Burke Mammalogy Research section, current research on the Biogeography of Pacific Northwest Mammals is described, with details of other research projects (in Chile, Mexico, and China) still under construction. The Burke Mammal Collection section contains information on the Museum's 44,000 specimens, including history and composition of the Collection and Database, use of the Collection and Database, and Publications and Theses (related to the Collection).

Supporting Beginning Science Teachers  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The focus of this article is the more immediate way to help new science teachers, which comes from the experienced and professionally active teacher--you! As science teacher educators who work with and study the development of beginning teachers, the authors found the support offered knowingly and unknowingly by the teacher next door was a critical factor in assisting the new teacher (Luft and Roehrig 2006). Other research has expanded on this and found that support creates a positive learning and teaching environment and contributes to the development of the new teacher (Dangel 2006). Experienced science teachers can use the research-based strategies presented in this article to assist beginning science teachers.

Teacher Research: Stories of Learning and Growing  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Think you don't have time to do research? How about professional growth--think that's out of reach? Let your peers take you on their journeys and inspire you through their stories in Teacher Research . The editors don't rigidly define research, and the book reads more like a journal than a research report. The chapter authors range from first-year elementary teachers to doctoral candidates. They think of themselves as inquirers into science learning and teaching in ways that complement the insights into better teaching developed by more formal researchers. They ask questions about practice, collect evidence, make sense of the evidence, and share conclusions. The book is organized into three sections: � Part I includes four examples of research in progress by teachers who write to inform their thinking about aspects of integrating science and literacy learning. � Part II presents a variety of inquiries about science learning and teaching at a variety of grade levels in a variety of formats. � Part III features authors who reflect on the process of researching while teaching. If you're a science teacher, this collection will show you the paths that others like you have found to deepen their understanding of the philosophy and practice of teacher research. If you're a science-teacher educator, it will give you examples to share about the ways in-service teachers can conduct inquiry into their own work.

NOTES. Study on patients' perspective  

PubMed Central

Introduction Rapid development of minimally invasive surgery has led to escalation of the demands placed on health care professionals. Nowadays the patient is the one to choose where and how she/he wants to be operated on. Perioperative and postoperative quality of life is the most common item impacting the patients’ choice. Laparoscopic surgery is undoubtedly advantageous in several applications; however a further improvement of medical services has been introduced: the NOTES technique. This novel surgical approach definitively eliminates the problem of having scars. Though NOTES is still in the clinical trial stage, it might become an alternative for selected procedures soon. At this point it is necessary to define the patients’ expectations and preferences. Aim To evaluate patients’ opinions on the four surgical approaches: open, laparoscopic, transvaginal and transgastric. Material and methods For this purpose a special questionnaire was designed and one hundred randomly selected women were asked to complete it. Results The laparoscopic access was preferable in most aspects, closely followed by the transvaginal access. Open and transgastric approaches were considered as dangerous and disadvantageous. Conclusions Currently NOTES is a possible reality of tomorrow for some procedures. The transvaginal access was scored as “attractive”, “cosmetically attractive” and “technologically advanced”, as opposed to the transgastric access. The fact of manipulation in the intimate region requires thorough attention in future NOTES studies. Though the patients currently prefer the laparoscopic approach, this study proves that further development of transvaginal NOTES technology is acceptable and to some extent desired by the patients.

The master science teacher  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The dire need of some schools to boost the academic performance of their students inevitably rests with their ability to attract highly qualified teachers. As such, the UK has put in place the Advanced Skills Teacher (AST) scheme, while the US has set the ball rolling in laying down standards for the certification of the master science teacher, to distil the best teachers from this pool of highly qualified science teachers. This article examines some of the practices in the teaching-learning process one would associate with those of master science teachers. It argues for the master science teacher to have a well-developed pedagogical content knowledge rather than be an expert in content knowledge. It argues for the master science teacher to be someone who has moved 'from personal comprehension to preparing for the comprehension of others' (Shulman 1987 Harv. Educ. Rev. 75 1-22).

Two limiting water interfacial sites explain our results on montmorillonite, hectorite, and saponite suspensions. The location of cation isomorphous substitution and the Ca2+/Na+ molar ratio of exchangeable cations modulate their relative importance. With beidellite suspensions, water orientation at the clay surface cannot be described within the above scheme. PMID:9028911
