Instructional Conversations in Early Childhood Classrooms: Policy Suggestions for Curriculum Standards and Professional Development  [PDF]
Stephanie M. Curenton, Tricia Zucker
Creative Education (CE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2013.47A1009
Abstract:

The purpose of this article is to provide suggestions for two early education policy levers proposed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) that can be specifically applied to oral language instructional in the classroom: Policy Lever 2—Designing and implementing curriculum and standards; and Policy Lever 3—Improving qualifications, training and working conditions. First, I describe the efforts the United States has made in terms of oral language instruction, and second I describe a professional development model (the Conversation Compassa?) that trains teachers to use instructional conversations with children age 2-6.

Utilization of a Blended Learning Approach to Teach Pediatric Resuscitation to Medical Residents  [PDF]
Tricia Swan
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.618201
Abstract: Because of the rarity of the event of pediatric resuscitations, residents are not able to practice and maintain skills that are critical for caring for these patients. Training must be focused on rapid decision making, identification of anatomical structures for intubation, selecting appropriate equipment and sizes for resuscitation procedures, selection of appropriate medications and leading a team in stressful situations. The goal of this study was to evaluate the ability of a blended learning approach to facilitate the acquisition and retention of pediatric resuscitation skills utilizing both simulation technology and on-line education resources.
Invulnerability: A Concept Analysis
Tricia Bernecker
Global Journal of Health Science , 2010, DOI: 10.5539/gjhs.v2n1p111
Abstract: The concept of invulnerability is explored from the perspective of nursing, medicine, psychology, sociology, public health, and education. Walker and Avant’s framework for concept analysis will be used. Definitions of the concept are presented along with related terms. Antecedents, attributes, and consequences of the concept are discussed in detail. Model, borderline, related, and contrary cases are presented to provide a rich representation of the concept. Empirical referents and implications for nursing are presented.

Gauged N=2 Off-Shell Supergravity in Five Dimensions
Max Zucker
Physics , 1999, DOI: 10.1088/1126-6708/2000/08/016
Abstract: We present some multiplets of N=2 off-shell supergravity in five dimensions. One is the Super Yang-Mills multiplet, another one is the linear multiplet. The latter one is used to establish a general action formula from which we derive an action for the Super Yang-Mills multiplet. The Super Yang-Mills multiplet is used to construct the nonlinear multiplet with gauged SU(2). This nonlinear multiplet and the action formula for the Yang-Mills multiplet enable us to write down an SU(2) gauged supergravity which we finally truncate to arrive at gauged supergravity with gauge group SO(2).
Cross-Correlation and Maximum Likelihood Analysis: A New Approach to Combine Cross-Correlation Functions
Shay Zucker
Physics , 2003, DOI: 10.1046/j.1365-8711.2003.06633.x
Abstract: This paper presents a new approach to combine cross-correlation functions. The combination is based on a maximum-likelihood approach and uses a non-linear combination scheme. It can be effective for radial-velocity analysis of multi-order spectra, or for analysis of multiple exposures of the same object. Simulations are presented to show the potential of the suggested combination scheme. The technique has already been used to detect a very faint companion of HD41004.
Detection of Periodicity Based on Serial Dependence of Phase-Folded Data
Shay Zucker
Physics , 2015, DOI: 10.1093/mnras/stv509
Abstract: We introduce and test several novel approaches for periodicity detection in unevenly-spaced sparse datasets. Specifically, we examine five different kinds of periodicity metrics, which are based on non-parametric measures of serial dependence of the phase-folded data. We test the metrics through simulations in which we assess their performance in various situations, including various periodic signal shapes, different numbers of data points and different signal to noise ratios. One of the periodicity metrics we introduce seems to perform significantly better than the classical ones in some settings of interest to astronomers. We suggest that this periodicity metric - the Hoeffding-test periodicity metric - should be used in addition to the traditional methods, to increase periodicity detection probability.
Minimal Off-Shell Supergravity in Five Dimensions
Max Zucker
Physics , 1999, DOI: 10.1016/S0550-3213(99)00750-6
Abstract: We give an off-shell formulation of N=2 Poincare supergravity in five dimensions
Supersymmetric Brane World Scenarios from Off-Shell Supergravity
Max Zucker
Physics , 2000, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.64.024024
Abstract: Using N=2 off-shell supergravity in five dimensions, we supersymmetrize the brane world scenario of Randall and Sundrum. We extend their construction to include supersymmetric matter at the fixpoints.
On the reductive Borel-Serre compactification, II: Excentric quotients and least common modifications
Steven Zucker
Mathematics , 2006,
Abstract: Let X be a locally symmetric variety. Let EBS(X) and TorE(X) denote its excentric Borel-Serre and excentric toroidal compactifications, resp. We determine their least common modification and use it to prove a conjecture of Goresky and Tai concerning canonical extensions of homogeneous vector bundles. In the process, we see that EBS(X) and TorE(X) are homotopy equivalent.
