Assignment Brief

The assignment for this unit is a small research project. You should design, execute and critically analyse a piece of research on learning in a setting of your choice, using an appropriate research methodology.

 

Briefing: You should design and undertake a small piece of research that investigates a question about diversity and learning and\or pedagogy and that interests you. You should frame the research question and the issue you study by drawing upon the literature in the field. You should also and contextualise your study theoretically and conceptually and make sure that you engage with questions regarding the helpfulness (or not) of particular theorisations. Hence, your research should have an empirical and theoretical dimension to it. You should write up your research in the form of an 8000-word report. You should cover: background and context (practically and in terms of the relevant literature); methodology (including design, sampling, methods, epistemological approach, mode of analysis, ethics); an account of your findings; and, a critical reflection on the research.  You will need to gain ethical clearance for this project. You will be given guidance on this at the summer school.

Parents’ voices on their perception about dyslexic support in schools: How does the relationship between perception and policy correspond? 

To what extent are parents perceptions of Dyslexic support reflected in special education needs (SEN) school policy?

This research is aimed at examining through the BSAK (British School of Khubairat) Learning Support Policy to what extent current practises of supporting learners of dyslexia were shared with parents involved in the parental support group.

To seek and facilitate collaborative relations between parents, learning support, teachers and other stakeholders of learners who have been diagnosed as dyslexic.

To provide insightful data in to the perceptions from parents on dyslexia, school support and the learning support policy.

  • I am interested to reflect and explore any problems, barriers, boundaries (language/ knowledge) with parent’s accessibility and comprehension on the learning support policy for dyslexia.
  • Does the policy highlight what kinds of learning support / resources are available in school?
  • Also, the relevance and applicability to policy concerning dyslexia and the constraints of theory to the application of practice (home/ school)
  • To critically reflect on the theory of philosophy of pedagogy, diversity in school and the wider community of support and the specific recommendations for policy and practice to reflect any principles of any generalisation.

Then Phase 2 is to see if any of the hegemony practices are reflected and practised through learning support, teachers and learning. And explore the power-knowledge relationships of this policy

Is there any explicit values and theories of learning support that is committed to the learning support policy?

  • ABSTRACT

(Do this at the end)

  • INTRODUCTION

Historically, teachers, staff, parents and the community have had very little power at a national level to change or shape policy in education and schools (Mary, 1996). The underrepresented learning groups and stake holders can often fill marginalised (Quote NEEDED)  .The involvement of parents is not only a right identified in the education act (******) aimed at providing the policy framework for parents to participate, take responsibility for the process of those school policies and practice which impact both what happens in the school and the community.

 

Schools and education are as Mary (1996, p. 176) “are part of the fabric of society which can often embody individualistic, competitive and rationalistic values”. Underrepresented learning groups and stake holders, like those learners diagnosed with dyslexia and parents to these learners do not get equal representation.

PROJECT TITLE

To what extent are parents perceptions of Dyslexic support reflected in special education school policy?

INVITATION

You are invited and being asked to take part in a research study on parents’ perceptions of dyslexia and their experiences of current British School Al Khubairat (BSAK) and practice relating to Special Educational Needs (SEN), dyslexia specifically. This research is a Doctorate of Education level project, being undertaken by Christopher Blake for University of Bath, UK. It is a pilot study and is aimed to be developed into a future Doctorate thesis which will investigate more parents, school, learning support and teachers’ perceptions of Dyslexia school policy and support for all those stakeholders involved. The research will align itself to the ongoing changes in Special Education Needs (SEN) policy which will revise and reflect the dyslexic support given at school and parental engagement which forms the support group.

This research aims at investigating the SEN parents’ support group understanding at dyslexia and the school policy on SEN, and within the con going changes in SEN policy. You are being asked, as part of a one-to-one interview, about your understanding and experiences of the nature of dyslexia, the backgrounds of the parental support group and your perceptions of the BSAK SEN policy.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN

This study has two phrases

One-to-one interviews with parents and phrase two interviews with the BSAK Learning Support teachers.

In this study, parents will be asked to attend one initial interview session, and then one follow-up interview. The first session of one-to-one interviews will be recorded and be approximately 40 minutes long and will include a short introduction of the study and then questions. The second follow-up interview will be shorter and aimed at exploring deeper responses from the initial interview. The interviews will be organised at a time to suit the participant during the autumn term of 2016. Subsequently, the Learning Support teachers will then be interviewed

PARTICIPANTS’ RIGHTS

You have the right to withdraw participation in the study at any time without consequence. You may request that data gathered within your interviews be removed/ or destroyed at any point during the study without consequence or the need to justify your withdrawal.

You will be provided with a copy of your own transcript and will have the opportunity to comment on it (If you choose to participate in the interview process).

You may ask questions regarding the procedures in the study and if you have any questions following reading this study, you can contact myself, the researcher before the research begins.

Teachers have the right to withdraw from this research at any time without consequence. They do not have to provide any explanation or justify withdrawal.

Teachers can omit or decline to respond to any questions that is asked of them as appropriate and without any consequence to them.

BENEFITS AND RISKS

No physical harm will be experienced during the research and results from this research. Nonetheless, personally and professional issues around dyslexia can be controversial. As such, this research may raise personal as well as professional issues that an interviewee may find difficult to discuss. To minimise uncomfortable feelings the interviews will be conducted will not be conducted in a non-confrontational manner. However, if any uncomfortable feelings and concerns about the study, any participant can discuss how best to address these issues.

The benefits of the study is to provide parents to reflect on their knowledge of dyslexia and related SEN school policy and related policy intervention.

The study has received ethical approval from the University of Bath Department of Social and Policy Sciences and is being undertaken in adherence to ethical guidelines from the Social Research Association which can be viewed at: http://the-sra.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/ethics03.pdf

CONFIDENTIALITY/ ANONYMITY

Data collected will be stored with regard to the 1998 Data Protection Act and will adhere to the Social Research Association’s ethical guidelines.

I will take responsible steps to ensure confidentiality and anonymity: data will be kept separately from documents which could allow participants to be identified; recorded device, computer systems will be password protected. School sites will be given pseudonyms and teachers’ names will be coded. As teachers from the same school will be familiar with each other, potentially compromising or sensitive data will be treated sensitively and will not from part of the final study without consultation with project supervisors and participant.

Critical Psychology

To what degree does education promote social justice or injustice for those with dyslexia and for those parents of dyslexic students?

 

My research aim is to find the perceptions and feelings of parents of dyslexic learners in the British School, in Abu Dhabi regarding the promotion of dyslexia support through school subjects, together with how they support and use strategies to overcome some difficulties at home.

  • Problem statement

Parents

  • My aim is to find out the perceptions of parents on how dyslexia is being promoted, supported in a British School in Abu Dhabi.
  • To understand what methods parents use to assist their children with dyslexic difficulties

The aim is to discover what methods are used by parents of dyslexic students and whether parents have used any cognitive strategies for their dyslexic children (technology, cognitive exercises, Brian Gym).

Using and developing strategies overtime for dyslexic learners may assist with cognitive capacities for those learners. Providing an awareness of these strategies to parents and teachers can also provide the “prolonged and repeated experience of children or adults can form new neuronal connections” 

Under pinning this research is Bernstein’s analysis of integration, in the sense of the UK curriculum keeps these learners together, although they have differing ways of accessing learning. (Integration/ mechanical) Mechanical = collective conscience of what dyslexia is and perhaps through what the curriculum holds and the way learners with dyslexia learn and are supported/ or not.

Dyslexia can provide an obstacle on the curriculum (knowledge and the way it is transmitted)

Pedagogy (the methods) of transmission on this knowledge

Evaluation (assessment/testing) is linked and constrained by curriculum and pedagogy

Classification = separate subjects and the boundaries between them (strategies of learning support)

Framing = Strong or weak (do the teachers control the way learning support is used) weak

Strong = following a tight curriculum  and the learner has no control over what is taught

How do these concepts work. Are teachers and parents in control (have the power) to the content they teach, the way it is organised and sequenced.

Thus “integrated code” learners with dyslexia may bring a balance of power between the teachers and what they teach and the way they can support learners.

Underpinning Bernstein the thoughts of parents towards how learners are taught and supported provides attitudes and perceptions of how knowledge can control and mould a learners attitudes towards reality and possibly how dyslexia is manifested in education and the curriculum. Thus to value the democracy of education parents and learners, as well as teachers are stake holders:

Bernsteins conditions for democracy:

Enhancement access to critical understanding and new possibilities —-can be possible with confidence at an individual level (dyslexia suffer from this)

Inclusion – the right to be socially part of not being excluded through learning support

Early intervention towards dyslexia is essential towards diagnosis of dyslexia and also the process of getting appropriate support. Parents play a central part towards this process, practice and policy for the support in education. However, parents are often reluctant to seek potential support and communicate with teachers and schools and “find it difficult to openly consult about any difficulties their child may be experiencing” and concerns over the “lack of a diagnosis or a feeling that their child’s educational needs are being recognized or met” (Reid, 2010, p. 157).

Some parents want a label (a sense of being recognised) searching for an answer to a condition which has been an obstacle towards getting the necessary treatment.

Some feel that school needs to be aware of the child’s progress in all aspects of the curriculum and this needs to be discussed, between parents and school to deal with any lack of progress.

Some parents perception is that the school/ educational setting “does not accept dyslexia”

Parents anxieties and potential conflict often arise from individuals and interest groups who may have different ideas towards support needed.

This research is aimed at providing a voice to a group, parents, who can be excluded to the curriculum and the classroom. The use of Bernstein theories of education democracy this study aims at evaluating those ‘voices’ involved with dyslexia support and draw out new voices which often underpin notions of equality and an epistemology of education for social justice (Freire, 1970). This would also mean that all the stakeholders and communities involved with learner and dyslexic a support must collaborate to understand diversity and any discrimination (

Education

The central aim of the collective focus of dyslexic support in education democracy is a commitment to provide “new spaces for collaborative work engaged in productive social change.” (Giroux, H. A., & Shannon, P., 1997. Education and Cultural Studies toward a Performative Practice. Routledge. The engagement of all those involved has the potential to transform not only the support for the dyslexic support, but also teaching practice and school policy.

Learners achievement also depends on the relationships of all those involved and where the support and education takes place. Bronfenbrenner (1997) theories point out that learners do not evolve independently, but also the “larger social contexts, both formal and informal, in which these setting are embedded” (Bronfenbrenner, 1997, p. 513). These settings, as Bronfenbrenner, are two proximal systems, a microsystem and the mesosytem. The microsystem consists of the child’s immediate context e.g. what parents say or do to support the learner’s achievement.  Whereas the mesosystem comprises the interactions the learner has in major settings where the learner is developing at a particular point of time. Thus, a learner through the mesosystem can include ‘family’ ‘school’ or any other grouping/ community that individual belongs. Thus, these complex systems and the relationships become critical for developing understanding of parental influence towards supporting dyslexia and identifying “the nature and value of learning and education through their ongoing interactions with their caregivers, teachers, and mentors” (Bempechat & Shernoff, 2012, p. 315). Critically, understanding these relationships and nurturing collaborations can stem not just support, but can work to “stem the tide of underachievement and disengagement” (Bempechat and Shernoff, 212, p. 316) dyslexic may have due to the difficulty accessing the curriculum.

Literature review:

Through Bernstein (and others, Bourdieu) drawing on theories of critical pedagogy this research will follow the path of reflection to the development, production and involvement of learning support within the culture of schooling and parental relationships access and engagement to that educational support. The data and findings through pedagogical perspectives will seek to review, reflect and potentially assist with help transform the relationships, and practices that are respond from parent’s perceptions and the policy of learning support in school.

Highlight any Hegemony that may be acted as a social control through a process of policy controlling the practices of how pedagogy is represented within any learning support that is undertaken. It may then challenge teachers to identify within there own practices a responsibility to modify, change, deffereintiate classrooms and practice tied to the hegemony of what the policy states/ not states towards those learners. Importantly, labels of dyslexia may add to a general consciousness of

Social constructionists – (Vivian Burr (1995) often four ideas that social constructionists) http://methods.sagepub.com/book/doing-conversation-discourse-and-document-analysis/n1.xml

  • A critical perspective on taken-for-granted knowledge and understanding
  • A perspective that the world is both historically and culturally specific
  • Knowledge is created, sustained and renewed by social processes
  • Knowledge and actions are intimately related and reflexively inform each other.

 Methodology

Conversation analysis

Discursive psychology (how actions and practises are accomplished in and through the talk)

Van Dijk (1999) describes the two positions that those who study discourse can find themselves in. On the one hand, these are those analysts who

 

are not afraid to make use of their social knowledge that being black, being a woman, being young or being the boss will most likely be evident from the way people write and talk. In other words, they assume that discourse may reproduce social inequality. (1999, p. 460)

 

 

 

The counter-claim, made by another group of analysts, is that

 

such an approach should not merely presuppose (even plausible) contextualisation, but ‘prove’ it by attending to the details of what social members actually say and do. If not, contextualisation is pointless because of its discursive irrelevance. (1999, p. 460)

Lit review

 

  • Bernstein (democratic value and education) how power is placed and works in an educational/ school context (equality: What is it? How does equality work in the context of SEN and dyslexia)
  • Equality:
  • Does it mean equal entitlement to access to select a certain type of schooling or curriculum?
  • Providing equal chances and opportunities to learners to explore and fulfil their learning potentials.
  • Do dyslexic learners have equality of resources in education?
  • Are dyslexic children, (also SEN) provided more funding due to claim of equality and does this support differ from national and international systems of education.
  • What equates as equality when it comes to the distribution or resources to support dyslexic learners?
  • Bourdieu – habitus and labelling (Dyslexia)
  • National and International perspectives on SEN and inclusive education
  • Current developments and legislation

“a democracy – a society in which every member is in process of education for the highest forms of behaviour of which he is capable”

The choices through national and international policy on SEN and inclusion is aimed to “create institutions of liberal education throughout the world so that reason and morality could flourish on a global scale” (Nelson, 2001, p. 257, Education and democracy: The meaning of Alexander Meiklejohn)

Neuroplasticity: Begin to Change A Life with Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Autism Today (Video)

From Examiner.com

 

By Tina Burgess

October 20, 2012

http://www.specialneedsdigest.com/2012/10/neuroplasticity-begin-to-change-life.html

 

“Because there is a lack of knowledge and facts about neuroplasticity, there is a general trend in education to keep practicing the same instructional remediation methods for children with learning disabilities.” Neuroplasticity helps children with learning disabilities

http://dyslexiauntied.blogspot.co.uk/2011/07/neuroplasticity-helps-children-with.html

This notion contrasts with the previous scientific consensus that the brain develops during a critical period in early childhood, then remains relatively unchangeable (or “static”) afterward.[3]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroplasticity

 

 

 

 

 

 

Students with dyslexia, attention deficit disorder or autism, however, do not have to be confined to develop new cognitive capacities.

 

In order for the brains of dyslexics, ADD/ADHD or autistic individuals to change, children or adults need one major component – experience.

 

Through prolonged and repeated experience, the brains of children or adults can form new neuronal pathways and new neuronal connections.

Directions: Please follow the instructions closely. Questions 1-10 are worth 9 points each. Question 11 is worth 10 points.

Due: All problem sets have to be turned in at the beginning of the class. Due Dates: March 2

Table 1 includes regression results using the NLSY 97 data set. The omitted racial group is ”non-black/ non-Hispanic”. The omitted census region is ”West”. The omitted favorite ice cream flavor is Chocolate.

Using the regression results in Table 1 perform each of the following tests. Use 0.05 significance level for every problem unless otherwise noted. You should write both the null and alternative hypotheses, calculate the necessary statistics, find correct critical values, and make the correct conclusion

  1. Use a t-test to test if education has a statistically significant(2-sided) effect on income in column 1.
  2. Use a t-test to test the null hypothesis that black workers make more than nonblack/non-Hispanic, all else equal.
  3. Find confidence intervals for the coefficient on education in column 1 and column

 

  1. Use the SSR version of the F-test to test the joint significance of the regional variables. (You can ignore the e + 12)
  2. Use the R2 version of the F-test to test the joint significance of the regional variables.
  3. Why does the coefficient on education change in each regression? Why would it be so much different in columns 1 and 3?
  4. Column 4 includes favorite ice cream flavor. Use an F-test to show that they should not be included.
  5. Typically there are stars to denote p-values on regression results. If 1,2, or 3 stars were added for p-values< 0.10, < 0.05, and < 0.01 respectively. How many stars would go on the coefficient for Northeast in column 2?
  6. Interpret β2 in column 1.
  7. What additional information is needed to test if black workers and Hispanic workers earn different incomes in column 1? What regression could you run to simplify the test?
  8. This must be typed. Use the project data set to estimate the equation with all of the variables from columns 1,2,3. of the regression results table and one other regression that you may find of interest for your project. (Your data set is a subsample of this set.) ”grade” is the education variable, the census variable has the regional categories.

To create dummy variables for race type ”tab race, gen(rdum)”. This will create rdum1. rdum2, rdum3, rdum4, and rdum5, each will have the associated race in the variable label. Use the same technique for census group.

(a) Create a table similar to Table 1 with regression results. The table does not need to be identical, but all of the following must be met to receive credit:[1]

  • Include all of the listed variables.
  • Use variable labels that make sense to someone that has never used the data (ie Years of Education instead of ihigrdc).
  • Put standard errors in parentheses.
  • Denote coefficients that are statistically significant at 0.01 ***, 0.05 **, and 0.10 * significance levels.

Anthro 697TM: Indigenous Research: Theories and Methods


Anthro 697TM: Indigenous Research: Theories and Methods
The course will broadly examine both theoretical, methodological and practical aspects of research conduction on indigenous issues. We will consider the range of all theoretical approaches, which scholars and also the community members rely on (at the present time and historically) when framing academic research papers. knowledge production contexts and in local/global community spaces of social change through indigenous activist. Our inquiry will be structured through three primary questions: first, in what ways do indigenous theories and methods form a distinct form of inquiry – what makes these approaches different and how/where/in what contexts are they similar or drawing from similar roots? Second, what knowledge do these forms of theory and method produce, uncover, allow for? And, finally, in what ways are the knowledge’s produced different (are these results necessarily “better”) than when other qualitative and quantitative methods are utilized?
Our Best research writers  will include principles and approaches found in decolonizing methodologies, anti-oppressive research strategies, and community-based participatory/action research. Research ethics, issues of intellectual property and the care, curation and “ownership” of knowledge and one’s research results, will be key strands of concern that weave throughout our inquiry. We will divide the course into two segments: in the first segment we will delve deeply into the literature on indigenous method and theory, moving between applied examples and meta-discussion of theoretical frameworks and specific methodologies; in the second segment of the course we will workshop specific methods and discuss how class participants might utilize the methods in their own research
