    Aravena Brian Justison Starting an International Travel Course or Program From Paper to Reality This presentation will guide you step by step with concrete examples on how to prepare your course curriculum and effective travel plans We will discuss the differences from immersions overseas and semester courses with travel components Also some other specific travels in the spring or summer break such as those done by students and faculty in the School of Music Catherine Ming Tu Music Aptitude Tonal Accuracy Achievement and Singing Voice Development of Kindergarten and First Grade Children This study investigated relationships among selected singing achievement dimensions for kindergarten and first grade children N 34 The researcher designed Tonal Accuracy Achievement Measure TAAM appears to be an appropriate criterion measure for assessing young children s tonal accuracy achievement on Major and Minor song performance A significant relationship r 45 p 01 was found between TAAM and the Singing Voice Development Measure SVDM Rutkowski 1996 after but not before the 24 weeks of music instruction Developmental music aptitude was not significantly related to TAAM or SVDM Scott Lambert Framing the Bubble How ESPN s Sportscenter Frames the NCAA Tournament Bubble The NCAA men s basketball tournament draws millions of fans to the television and has become an important cultural event in the United States This paper examines how ESPN s SportsCenter highlights differences in its coverage of teams from the six major conferences and teams from the other 25 conferences The paper uses qualitative methods from the 2010 and 2011 SportsCenters to examine how SportsCenter highlighted specific attributes that lead to a narrative that favors average schools from the six major conferences over schools from the other 25 conferences This leads to a perception that average teams from the six major conferences are more deserving of selection into the NCAA Tournament than top teams from the other 25 conferences 11 10 11 30 A M Florence Folami Two Cultures Two Languages Two Health Systems One Bond Only by much searching and mining are gold and diamonds obtained and man can find every truth connected with his being if he will dig deep into the mine of his soul Allen 2009 In Summer 2010 students from Millikin University in Decatur and Taiwan Medical University in Taiwan participated in nursing immersion program that provided opportunity for the students to experience a glimpse of life in a foreign place The students experiences were captured in their reflections which were compiled in a single volume and serve as a rich source of information about the value of cultural exchanges This presentation will discuss the common themes identified from the stories of each student and also examine the personal and professional meaning of participating in global nursing immersion Ray Boehmer The New Next Generation K 12 Science Standards Are They Really Better than the Old Ones The newest version of the K 12 Science Standards is hot off the presses after an open period for public comment Although it is not a curriculum the new set of standards has the potential for affecting the science literacy level of American students for many years to come if properly implemented I will provide an easy to follow overview of the standards and illustrate some examples of how they can be used with young children and adolescents alike Gregg Marcello and David Horn The Effects of Bush Honeysuckle Removal on the White Footed Mouse Population at Rock Springs Conservation Area in Decatur IL Bush honeysuckle is an invasive species that can cause significant changes to a forest understory We examined how the removal of bush honeysuckle influenced the abundance of white footed mice The study was part of a semester long research project conducted by David Horn s 2013 Ecology class and was conducted at Rock Springs Conservation Area in Decatur IL The study followed a Before After Control Impact design in which students initially trapped white footed mice at two forested plots then removed bush honeysuckle from one of the two forested plots while leaving the other untreated and finally trapped white footed mice at both forested plots after bush honeysuckle had been removed from one of them We found that the number of mice trapped before and after treatment at both the control and experimental plots were equivalent Thus in the short term bush honeysuckle removal may have limited impact on this species Future classes should examine what role removal has over longer periods of time This project may serve as a model for future classes by 1 providing students with performance learning opportunities i e learning the scientific method by doing science and 2 broadening horizons by performing a service learning project that is of value to community stakeholders i e ecological restoration at the Macon County Conservation District 11 30 11 50 A M Joyce Bezdicek Hee Young Choi Steven Hales Cultural Awareness through Discussion Groups This fall the School of Education and the English Language Center ELC worked together to establish Friday discussion groups for fall semester of 2012 The discussion groups involved education students from ED 238 Child Language Development and Linguistics and students from the English Language Center ELC The goal of the discussion groups was for students from ED 238 to become more aware of bilinguals and the process of becoming bilingual as well as understanding language from a cultural perspective At the same time the goal of the discussion groups for ELC students was to enhance their English language proficiencies and language awareness In our presentation we will share the kinds of activities and discussion students engaged in as well as benefits of the discussion groups for School of Education students and students at the English Language Center Deborah L Slayton The Future of Nursing Nursing Education Scope of Practice In Fall of 2010 The Future of Nursing Leading Change Advancing Health report was released The consensus report was a culmination of a two year collaboration which was initiated by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation RWJF
