How can we move towards engaging deeply with who we are and think we are in relation to place, land, and the world, grounded in an intricate sense of harmony? How can we move our work in botanic gardens beyond regarding land,…

Maxwell, Lesli A. – Education Week, 2010
In the final sprint to polish Race to the Top applications, hundreds of school districts shunned a shot at a share of $4 billion in grants by refusing to sign on to their states' plans for the federal competition.

Becraft, Jessica L.; Borrero, John C.; Mendres-Smith, Amber E.; Castillo, Mariana I. – Journal of Behavioral Education, 2017
Differential-reinforcement-of-low-rate (DRL) schedules can be used to decrease, but not eliminate, excessive bids for teacher attention in a classroom. There are two primary methods of implementing a DRL: full session and spaced responding. Some research suggests that the full-session DRL may eliminate target responding. The purpose of the current…

Ninio, Anat – Journal of Child Language, 2016
Before they are 3;0-3;6, children typically do not engage with peers in focused interaction, although they do with adults. With parents, children interact around the "here-and-now". We hypothesize that young peers do not attempt to establish joint attention to present objects. Using the CHILDES database, we compared attention-directives…

Stanley, Grant Edward; Stronach, Ian – Journal of Education Policy, 2013
In this article, a deconstructive "survol" of the term "standards" suggests that the concept contributes to an "outside-in" professionalism masquerading as "inside-out" professionalism. In examining a case of "standards" in action, the authors point out the inadequacy of "standards" as…

Pollard, Joy S.; Betz, Alison M.; Higbee, Thomas S. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2012
We used a script-fading procedure to teach 3 children with autism to initiate bids for joint attention. We examined the effects of (a) scripts, (b) varied adult scripted responses, and (c) multiple-exemplar script training on promoting unscripted language during bids for joint attention. All 3 participants learned to initiate bids for joint…

The California school that parents want to turn into a charter now has two organizations seeking to make the change.

Meindl, James N.; Cannella-Malone, Helen I. – Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2011
Joint attention is a skill that involves coordinating the attention of at least two individuals towards an object or event. Although it is seen as a critical skill in early child development, it is frequently absent in children with autism and has been linked to poorer language outcomes for those children. As a result, multiple interventions have…
