Abriendo Puertas, Cerrando Heridas
(Opening doors, closing wounds):
Latinas/os Finding Work-Life Balance in Academia
By Frank Hernandez, University of Texas of the Permian Basin;
Elizabeth Murakami, Texas A&M University-San Antonio
and Gloria M. Rodriguez, UC Davis
A volume in Work-Life Balance
Series Editors: Joanne M. Marshall, Iowa State University, Jeffrey S. Brooks, Iowa State University,
Bonnie C. Fusarelli, North Carolina State University, Catherine A. Lugg, Rutgers University,
Latish C. Reed, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and George Theoharis, Syracuse University
Abriendo Puertas, Cerrando Heridas (Opening Doors, Closing Wounds): Latinas/os Finding Work-Life
Balance in Academia is the newest book in the series on balancing work and life in the academy from
Information Age Publishing. This volume focuses on the experiences of Latina/o students, professors, and
staff/administrators in higher education and documents their testimonios of achieving a sense of balance between their personal and professional lives.
In the face of many challenges they are scattered across the country, are often working in isolation of each other and must find ways to develop their
own networks, support structures, and spaces where they can share their wisdom, strategize, and forge alliances to ensure collective success.
The book focuses on Latinas/os in colleges of education, since many of them carry the important mission to prepare new teachers, and research new
pedagogies that have the power of improving and transforming education. Following the format of the work-life balance book series, this volume
contains autoethnographical testimonios in its methodological approach. This volume addresses three very important guiding questions (1) What are
the existing structures that isolate/discriminate against Latinas/os in higher education? (2) How can Latinas/os disrupt these to achieve work-life
balance? And, (3) Based on their experiences, what are the transformative ideologies regarding Latinas/os seeking work-life balance?

Research in Global Citizenship Education
Edited by Jason Harshman, University of Iowa
and Tami Augustine, The Ohio State University,
Merry Merryfield, The Ohio State University
A volume in Research in Social Education
Series Editor Merry Merryfield, The Ohio State University
Globalization is changing what citizens need to know and be able to do by interrupting the
assumption that the actions of citizens only take place within national borders. If our
neighborhoods and nations are affecting and being affected by the world, then our political
consciousness must be worldminded. The outcomes of globalization have led educators to
rethink what students need to learn and be able to do as citizens in a globally connected world.
This volume focuses on research that examines how K-12 teachers and students are currently
addressing the challenge of becoming citizens in a globally interconnected world. Although
there is an extensive body of literature on citizenship education within national contexts and a growing literature on global education,
this volume offers research on the work educators are doing across multiple countries to bring the two fields together to develop global
citizens.

Priorities of the Professoriate:
Engaging Multiple forms of
Scholarship Across Rural and Urban institutions
Edited by Fred A. Bonner, II, Prairie View A&M University;
Rosa M. Banda, Rutgers; Petra A. Robinson, Louisiana State University;
Chance W. Lewis, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte
and Barbara Lofton, University of Arkansas-Fayetteville
A volume in Contemporary Perspectives on Access, Equity and Achievement
Series Editor Chance W. Lewis, University of North Carolina at Charlotte,
Established in 2006, the American Association of Blacks in Higher Education (AABHE), formerly
constituted as the Black Caucus (American Association of Higher Education), has been the consistent voice
of Black issues in academe. According to the stated mission, the AABHE pursues the educational and
professional needs of Blacks in higher education with a focus on leadership, equity, access, achievement and
other vital issues impacting students, faculty, staff, and administrators. AABHE also facilitates and provides opportunities for collaborating and
networking among individuals, institutions, groups and agencies in higher education in the United States and internationally. This 2012 year will mark
the beginning of the AABHE research consortium, an arm of the organization that will advance scholarly research and publications to highlight critical
issues pertinent to the success and uplift of Black populations across the higher education diaspora.
This book will explore important issues across multiple fields—fields represented by the scholars/members of AABHE. AABHE scholars will
contribute chapters based on their disciplinary expertise. The work of Earnest Boyer as articulated in the book Faculty Priorities Reconsidered:
Rewarding Multiple Forms of Scholarship will be used as the conceptual foundation to ground this important work. A particular focus on the elements
of Boyer’s seminal work will include chapters devoted to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning; Scholarship of Engagement; Scholarship of
Discovery; and Scholarship of Integration. This scholarly book is unique in that it provides essential insight on how not only faculty, but also
administrators who are invested in insuring that the priorities of the professoriate are aligned with the mission and vision of urban postsecondary
institutions.

Beyond Methodology:
English Language Learners K-12
Edited by Johanne Myles
There is much variability with regard to the type, depth and effectiveness of
training teachers receive in understanding and meeting the needs of English
language learners (ELLs) in public schools across the country, yet the rise in the
number of learners has been substantial. Although it is important that teachers
have knowledge and skills related to instructional methods and approaches for
teaching ESL, they may also be confronted with policies that disadvantage ELLs,
such as compulsory standardized testing, and unrealistic curriculum demands.
They may also lack appropriate resources, and be faced with learners who have
learning disabilities and behavioral issues associated with culture shock.
The book is designed to present classroom-oriented topics that are fundamental to the professional development
of pre-service, novice, and veteran teachers working with ELLs. Such topics include issues surrounding initial
orientation and student placement; the acculturation process for ELLs and particular concerns of refugee
students; challenges involved in making accommodations and curricular modifications as well as determining if
ELLs have special needs; social and emotional difficulties affecting ELL performance and communicating with
parents; and bullying behaviors, learner advocacy and transitioning. The book may be used as a supplement to a
course textbook on second language acquisition and teaching, or as the main
focus of a course, to which other material is added.
Publication Date: 2015
The short case studies provide an opportunity for teachers to engage in
dialogue and wrestle with issues and dilemmas that pertain to ELLs in reallife school settings. They provide a stimulus that help teachers explore their
underlying assumptions about the languages, cultures, and experiences that
their ELLs bring to the school community. Acknowledging learners’
strengths and aspirations prepares all students for success in our global
society.

Journal of Character Education
(New Title Same Journal)
EDITORS:
Jacques S. Benninga, California State University, Fresno
and Marvin W. Berkowitz, University of Missouri—St. Louis
The current issue of the JCE is the second under the new name, Journal of
Character Education, and the first in its standard format of a set of reviewed
submitted articles with additional practitioner-focused articles. In this issue, there
are four scholarly peer-reviewed articles. Two focus on school-based evaluations:
one on the evaluation of a middle-school strengths-based intervention and a
second that explores character development in a post-secondary setting. The
other two are conceptual in nature: one presents a conceptual ecological model
for such programs and the other reviews and analyses different perspectives on
identify development. In addition, we hear from an exemplary middle school
teacher about his journey to integrate character education into the math
classroom. Lastly, David Streight offers an insightful response to the themed
V10 N1 issue on psychological and sociological perspectives on 21st century

Resisting Reform:
Reclaiming Public Education
through Grassroots Activism
Edited by Kjersti VanSlyke-Briggs, State University of New York–Oneonta
Elizabeth Bloom, Hartwick College; and
Danielle Boudet, Oneonta Area for Public Education
The primary audience for the book will be practicing teachers and parents though there is also great potential
for marketing to a college audience, particularly pre-service teachers and teacher educators. As professors of
Education, we envision using this book in a senior seminar course or Contemporary Issues in Education
course (required or offered as an elective in many teacher education programs). A large secondary audience
will include parents, who see the impact of education reform on their children and are looking for
straightforward and accessible information to help them understand what is happening and acquire the tools
for resistance. Finally, activists themselves are living this movement and are hungry for tangible evidence of
their efforts. A book like this has the potential to become a sort of ‘collector’s item’ among them.
This book is a poignant celebration of grassroots empowerment as our contributors, people who just a short time ago thought of themselves as ordinary
citizens, document their call to action when their children and their profession are on the line. We believe that readers will urge others to read it, for
inspiration as well as for practical guidance on how to become active in the movement themselves.

Attitude Measurements in Science Education
Classic and Contemporary Approaches
Edited by Myint Swe Khine, Emirates College for Advanced Education,
United Arab Emirates
The research into how students’ attitudes affect learning of science related subjects have been one of the core
areas of interest by science educators. The development in science education records various attempts in
measuring attitudes and determining the correlations between behaviour, achievements, career aspirations,
gender identity and cultural inclination. Some researchers noted that attitudes can be learned and teachers
can encourage students to like science subjects through persuasion. But some view that attitude is situated in
context and it is much to do with upbringing and environment. The critical role of attitude is well recognized
in advancing science education, in particular designing curriculum and choosing powerful pedagogies and
nurturing students.
Since Noll’ (1935) seminal work on measuring the scientific attitudes, a steady stream of research papers that
describe development and validation of scales appear in scholarly publications. Despite these efforts the progress in this area has been stagnated by
limited understanding of the conception about attitude, dimensionality and inability to determine the multitude of variables that made up such concept.
This book makes an attempt to take stock and critically examine the classical views on science attitudes and explore the contemporary attempts in
measuring science related attitudes. The chapters in this book are reflection of researchers who work tirelessly in promoting science education and will
illuminate the current trends and future scenarios in attitude measurement.

Contemporary Perspectives in Data Mining, Volume 2
Edited by Kenneth D. Lawrence, New Jersey Institute of Technology
and Ronald K. Klimberg, Saint Joseph’s University
A volume in Contemporary Perspectives in Data Mining
Series Editors Kenneth D. Lawrence, New Jersey Institute of Technology
and Ronald K. Klimberg, Saint Joseph’s University
The series, Contemporary Perspectives on Data Mining, is composed of blind refereed scholarly
research methods and applications of data mining. This series will be targeted both at the
academic community, as well as the business practitioner.
Data mining seeks to discover knowledge from vast amounts of data with the use of statistical
and mathematical techniques. The knowledge is extracted from this data by examining the
patterns of the data, whether they be associations of groups or things, predictions, sequential
relationships between time order events or natural groups.
Data mining applications are in marketing (customer loyalty, identifying profitable customers, instore promotions, e-commerce populations); in business (teaching data mining, efficiency of the Chinese automobile industry, moderate
asset allocation funds); and techniques (veterinary predictive models, data integrity in the cloud, irregular pattern detection in a
mobility network and road safety modeling.)

Ethics and Risk Management
Edited by Lina Svedin, University of Utah
A volume in Ethics in Practice
Series Editors Robert A. Giacalone, University of Denver
and Carole L. Jurkiewicz, Hofstra University
The underlying rationale for this book is to present research that a) highlights the explosively political and
deeply divisive issues involved in managing risk and b) address the empirical deficit and theoretical
challenges related to managing societal risk ethically. Extant risk management research borrows heavily
from engineering, systems theory and business management, and is primarily focused on probabilities,
modeling, and abstractions of the value of mitigative action. This research engenders a false sense of
objectivity and it de-politicizes fundamental political and democratic questions about the allocation of
society’s scarce resources and about the balance of responsibilities between governing institutions and
individuals with regard to risk. The quantitative and hard-science focus on risk also keeps a discussion of
the consequences of the distribution of risk, resources and responsibilities for real people out of the lime
light. The contributors to this book are experts in a wide range of academic fields and in this book they take
on the challenge of examining their core research with a specific ethics perspective. They explore the ethics
of risk management using theory, cases and data from a range of policy areas, countries and philosophical traditions.
This book should be of interest to scholars and practitioners working in fields that deal either implicitly or explicitly with risk. This would include, but
is not limited to, scholars and students of public management, public sector ethics, public policy, risk regulation, and risk management. The book deals
directly with core problems of management in the public sector, value-conflicts, multiple principals and stakeholders, as well as information analysis
and the application of sound and valid decision-making processes. The book can be adopted as a core text for graduate courses in public management,
public policy, public administration ethics, and comparative politics. It would also work well as an applied theory text in comparative politics; ethics
centered courses in political science, as well as more narrowly focused courses on risk, crisis and disaster management.
For the practitioner audience, this book pin-points the ethical stakes, the analytical and managerial challenges, and the necessary tools to meet the
many risks that societies face. This book, Ethics and Risk Management, provides a unique take on the realities of cost-benefit analysis, efforts to
control and regulate risk and risky behavior, as well as the decidedly bounded rationality with which
we, as decision-makers and citizens, perceive and take risks. The work of identifying, understanding,
prioritizing and designing effective tools to mitigate and manage risk is an inherently analytical and

strategic process best suited to take place before and between crises. Successful risk analysis and
management reduces the general occurrence of crises, while the ethical analysis and management of

Please supply Affiliation; Joelle D. Carter, Western Kentucky University
and Adriel A. Hilton, Western Carolina University
A volume in Contemporary Perspectives on Access, Equity and Achievement
Series Editor Chance W. Lewis, University of North Carolina at Charlotte,
The purpose of this edited volume is to examine the historical and contemporary dynamics of diversity as
well as the realities, challenges, and opportunities associated with diversity work at Historically Black
Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). This proposed book will include four sections, focusing on the historical
developments and socio-political factors impacting diversity work at HBCUs, organizational structure and
philosophical approaches, challenges and opportunities facing particular populations, and analysis of best
practices.
This text is designed to provide an overview and better understanding of diversity and multiculturalism that
exists in historically Black colleges and universities. The contents of the text will examine equity and inclusion efforts in these institutions, and will
explore various theories and practices utilized within the academy. Also, the text will examine race, class, gender, ethnicity, nationality, religion, age,
ability and sexuality. The goal of the book is to assist students, faculty, and staff in the higher educational landscape in developing their own
understandings of historical and contemporary issues related to diversity at HBCUs. Critical analysis of the multiple worldviews will be discussed as
we explore the origin, nature and scope of multiple ideologies within diversity, equity and inclusion at HBCUs. In addition, this book will be an
invaluable teaching resource for faculty in Educational Leadership Programs, Student Affairs Programs, or Sociology Programs, and other fields
interested in issues of retaining and supporting diverse college students.

A volume in Current Perspectives on Cognition, Learning, and Instruction
Series Editors Gregory Schraw, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
and Matthew McCrudden, Victoria University of Wellington;
Visual displays play a crucial role in knowledge generation and communication. The purpose of the volume
is to provide researchers with a framework that helps them use visual displays to organize and interpret data;
and to communicate their findings in a comprehensible way within different research (e.g., quantitative,
mixed methods) and testing traditions that improves the presentation and understanding of findings.
Further, this book includes contributions from leading scholars in testing and quantitative, qualitative, and
mixed methods research, and results reporting. The volume’s focal question is: What are the best principles
and practices for the use of visual displays in the research and testing process, which broadly includes the analysis, organization, interpretation, and
communication of data?
The volume is organized into four sections. Section I provides a rationale for this volume; namely, that including visual displays in research and
testing can enhance comprehension and processing efficiency. Section II includes addresses theoretical frameworks and universal design principles for
visual displays. Section III examines the use of visual displays in quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research. Section IV focuses on using
visual displays to report testing and assessment data.

New Directions in Technological and Pedagogical
Content Knowledge Research: Multiple Perspectives
Edited by Myint Swe Khine, Emirates College for Advanced Education
In the past decades wide-ranging research on effective integration of technology in instruction have been
conducted by various educators and researchers with the hope that the affordances of technology might be
leveraged to improve the teaching and learning process. However, in order to put the technology in optimum
use, knowledge about how and in what way technology can enhance the instruction is also essential. A
number of theories and models have been proposed in harnessing the technology in everyday lessons. Among
these attempts Technological and Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework introduced by
Mishra and Koehler has emerged as a representation of the complex relationships between technology,
pedagogy and content knowledge. The TPACK framework extends the concept of Shulman's pedagogical
content knowledge (PCK) which defines the need for knowledge about the content and pedagogical skills in
teaching activities. Since then the framework has been embraced by the educational technology practitioners,
instructional designers, and educators. TPACK research received increasing attention from education and
training community covering diverse range of subjects and academic disciplines and significant progress has
been made in recent years. This book attempts to bring the practitioners and researchers to present current directions, trends and approaches, convey
experience and findings, and share reflection and vision to improve science teaching and learning with the use of TPACK framework.
A wide array of topics will be covered in this book including applications in teacher training, designing courses, professional development and impact
on learning, intervention strategies and other complex educational issues. Information contained in this book will provide knowledge growth and
insights into effective educational strategies in integration of technology with the use of TPACK as a theoretical and developmental tool. The book will
be of special interest to international readers including educators, teacher trainers, school administrators, curriculum designers, policy makers, and
researchers and complement the existing literature and published works.

Inclusive Practices and Social Justice Leadership
for Special Populations in Urban Settings:
A Moral Imperative
Edited by M.C. Kate Esposito and Anthony H. Normore,
California State University Dominguez Hills
A volume in Educational Leadership for Social Justice
Series Editor Jeffrey S. Brooks, Monash University, Denise E. Armstrong, Brock University;
Ira Bogotch, Florida Atlantic University; Sandra Harris, Lamar University;
Whitney H. Sherman, Virginia Commonwealth University; George Theoharis, Syracuse University
Inclusive Practices and Social Justice Leadership for Special Populations in Urban Settings: A Moral
Imperative is comprised of a collection of chapters written by educators who refuse to let the voices of
dissent remain marginalized in our discussion of education in the 21st century education. Drawing from the
authors’ extensive experience in educational research and practice, coupled with their commitment to inclusion of special populations and social
justice they urge readers to examine how educational policies are produced for the least advantaged in our schools. Effective inclusionary practices
most certainly benefit all students, including English language learners, those who face gender discrimination, those who are in the foster care system,
and those who are Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, or Transgendered.
This collection presents a broader theoretical inclusive framework rooted in social justice: which we assert, offers the best practices for a greater
number of students who are at risk of minimal academic success. This broader conceptualization of inclusive schools adds to extant discourses about
students with exceptional needs and provides effective strategies school leaders operating from a social justice framework can implement to create
more inclusive school environments for all students, especially those in urban centers. It is hoped that lessons learned will improve the preparation and
practice of school leaders, thus improve educational outcomes for students from special populations.
