CPRE Affiliates Contribute to Research Community

CPRE affiliates ended 2016 with several contributions to the research community and are off to a busy start for 2017.  In January Jim Lane presented “The Principal’s Prism: The Ethic of Care” at The Qualitative Report Conference.  He discussed his autoethnographic narrative analysis of the ethic of care in his experiences as a middle school principal.  In February Sally Everts presented at the Conference of the Southeast Philosophy of Education Society her work as principal with a core group of teachers to implement an initiative named Learners to Leaders. The goal was to empower elementary students to set personal goals, track data, and report progress to teachers and parents.

Fall 2016 was a busy time for CPRE colleagues.  In 2016 Jim’s summary of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 was published in the Encyclopedia of Middle Grades Education, 2nd. edition.  Constance Raez published two sections in the Sage Encyclopedia of Online Education.  One entry examines the role bookstores play in the availability of textbooks and other materials for students enrolled in online courses.  The other examines how veterans have accessed online educational institutions, and the various programs that these institutions have created to serve the veterans in their student bodies.  Yvonne Heffner presented her paper, “Using Planned Reading Circles to Increase Preservice Special Education Teachers’ Content Knowledge,” at the Georgia Educational Research Association Conference.  Tonya Saheli presented at the Spirituality, Culture and Well-Being Conference at Excelsia College in Sydney, Australia.  Tonya discussed her paper, “The Existence of Unethical Hospital Practices When Treating Religious End of Life Patients.”

We look forward to many more research activities during 2017!
