Method and Myth in L. P. Hartley’s The Go-Between
Betty Jay
Studies in Literature and Language , 2012, DOI: 10.3968/j.sll.1923156320120503.2939
Abstract: Critical readings of The Go-Between often relate its depiction of sexuality, class and gender to the symbolism with which the author is frequently identified. Such connections can be further illuminated by considering T.S. Eliot’s notion of the “mythical method”. Hartley’s narrator seems to make extensive use of a personalised version of the “method” advocated by the poet. Mapping his world onto the Zodiac, Leo’s use of the “mythical method” enables him – at least for a short while – to order and control his experience. Initially offering him the mastery he craves, this method eventually renders Leo more vulnerable to the dramas that unfold around him. Once the integrity of his mythic structure is threatened, Leo’s own disintegration is assured. Given his absolute faith in the Zodiac, Leo comes only belatedly to recognise a different mythic parallel at work in his life. This other doubling sees Leo’s fate twinned with that of Icarus. Eventually acknowledged by Leo himself, this figure demonstrates Hartley’s on going concern with both method and myth and therefore suggests that his narrative – like its central protagonist, can offer the reader a critical perspective on the workings of each. Key words: Mythical method; Mythic doubles; Icarus; Zodiac; Mercury; Mastery; Structure; Order; Hierarchy; The fall
Team Players and Team Managers: Special Educators Working with Paraeducators to Support Inclusive Classrooms  [PDF]
Betty Y. Ashbaker, Jill Morgan
Creative Education (CE) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2012.33051
Abstract: This paper summarizes recommendations from a selection of international research literature urging teachers to take the initiative in their own classrooms to invite paraeducators to participate fully as team players in collaborative work. In US classrooms paraeducators (teacher aides/teacher assistants) have long been making valuable contributions in providing education services to students with a variety of needs. The literature documents change in their roles. Legislation has influenced their required qualifications—although legislation still refers to them as paraprofessionals. While some researchers have cast doubt on whether paraeducators are truly effective in their assigned roles, others have warned that the education system is over-reliant on them. In response to this changing perspective, teacher educators must revise programs to better prepare teacher candidates to effectively team with paraeducators. Personnel developers and school administrators must provide inservice training for a generation of teachers who have received little if any training in this area.
Effects of Neurokinin-1 Receptor Inhibition on Anxiety Behavior in Neonatal Rats Selectively Bred for an Infantile Affective Trait  [PDF]
Amanda L. Schott, Betty Zimmerberg
Pharmacology & Pharmacy (PP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/pp.2014.59096
Abstract:

Interest in understanding the etiology and developing new treatments for anxiety disorders in children and adolescents has led to recent studies of neurotransmitters not traditionally associated with neural pathways for fear and anxiety. The binding of the neurotransmitter substance P (SP) to its neurokinin-1 (NK1) receptor may be a crucial component in mediating the anxiety response. While previous studies using rodent models have documented the anxiolytic effects of SP antagonists, the role of individual differences in affective temperament has not yet been examined in studies of drug response. This study used intracerebroventricular injections of the NK1 antagonist Spantide II at concentrations of 10 and 100 pmol to examine the consequences of blocking the SP-NK1 pathway in high and low line rats selectively bred for high or low levels of ultrasonic distress calls after a brief maternal separation. Affective temperament was a significant factor in determining drug response. Spantide II resulted in a significant reduction of distress calls in subjects in the high anxiety line, while low line subjects with low anxiety were resistant to the drug. These data indicate that the SP-NK1 pathway could be an important therapeutic target for the treatment of various stress disorders, but drug response might be influenced by the individual’s state anxiety or history of chronic stress.

A cabe?a voraz
Mindlin, Betty;
Estudos Avan?ados , 1996, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40141996000200015
Abstract: the article focuses an indian myth about a flying and voracious head, that was told to the author by several indian tribes from the amazon, such as the tupari, the macurap, the jabuti, the aruá, the sateré-mawé. each version has a different plot, but the intriguing theme is always the same: the mutilation of the body, a head that is transformed or attaches itself to another being. the essay delves into the meaning of this myth, to which claude lévi-strauss dedicated a good portion of his two important books, l'origine des manières de table and la potière jalouse, and that was used by mário de andrade in his classic book about brazilian hero, macunaína, one of the few works of fiction to have been inspired by mythicalindian themes and characters. reporting this myth is just a small part of a large project of documentation of myths and traditions of brazilian indians that author has been working on for several years. the aim of this text is to show the rich imagination of brazilian indians, and to insist on the need to document contemporary cultures that are still widely unknown. brazilian art and fiction could enlarge their universe by exploring and trying to understant the heritage left to us by over two hundred different indian tribes. it is also important fot the indians to reaffirm their ethnic identity, and enhance the worth their participation in brazilian society, by writing, telling and spreading these myths, and by using them in their schools.
Leituras de operárias
Mindlin, Betty;
Psicologia USP , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-65642008000100005
Abstract: a defender of social causes and a poetic paladin crusading against injustice and inequality, ecléa bosi’s research into the reading habits of circa 50 women workers led to her book, cultura popular e cultura de massa: leituras de operárias, where she explores their access to books and the imaginary, their lives and how industrial society deprives them of artistic and literary creativity, despite their thirst for knowledge and self expression.
El mito de Yurupary: memoria ancestral como resistencia histórica
Osorio,Betty;
Revista de Estudios Sociales , 2006,
Abstract: this work explores some critical exercises that place the amazon indian within the occidental symbolic coordinates and the meaning transformations, which are imposed to him when he is moved into knowledge circuits distant from the cultural environment he comes from. meanwhile, it reconstructs and examines in a critical way the relation established by the critics of colombian literature with this symbolic system. in this analysis’ perspective, anthropologic, historical, and literary points of reference are continuously intertwined; however, the most important one is the in-depth and detailed research made by robin wright (1981) on brazilian baniwa groups.
Writing instruction throughout the curriculum Writing instruction throughout the curriculum

Ilha do Desterro , 2008,
Abstract: During the past 25 years, Rhetoric and Composition Studies have joined together to create an interdisciplinary field whose theory and research have transformed our understanding of writing. New perspectives on the difference between process and product in writing combined with a deeper understanding of the relationship between thinking and writing have dramatically changed the way that writing is now taught. In addition, writing has become increasingly viewed as a means, not just an end, of learning. These insights first influenced instruction in composition classes; however, they soon led to the development of programs involving content courses throughout the undergraduate curriculum.
