Acting and Teacher Education: Being Model for Identity Development
Kemal Sinanzmen
Turkish Online Journal of Qualitative Inquiry , 2011,
Abstract: This study follows three pre-service teachers during three academic semesters in which they took an acting course for teachers and participated in practicum with a special focus on rehearsing and developing their teacher identities. In order to create the necessary context for them, an acting course for pre-service teacher education was designed in parallel with a model which is based on an influential acting theory. This model, namely the BEING (Believe, Experiment, Invent, Navigate, Generate), was also designed by the researcher. The incentive behind designing a model grounded on acting literature was that the relevant literature does not provide trainers with a universal model which can be referred as a manual for running and monitoring acting courses for teachers. In this case study, this model was also tested in terms of its applicability and functionality in practice. Based on analyses of audio taped interviews, session journals and reflections, the five stages of the BEING Model was found to be highly applicable and functional in terms of reflecting the natural development process of teacher identity development. Pre-service teachers displayed a significant development in communication skills and professional identities. Therefore, the BEING model provides a perspective and a philosophy of benefiting from acting literature for teacher educators with little or no knowledge on acting and theatre.

Abstract: This paper presents a study investigating the washback effect of Inter-university Foreign Language Examination (ILE) on candidate academics in Turkey. Over the last decades, washback studies have become even more critical in the field of applied linguistics due to unanimous remarks of the international research studies indicating the critical role of the high-stakes tests on students, teachers and societies. Also an effective understanding of washback is now much more important because of the increasing number of international testees taking these examinations. The present study follows twelve candidate academics during their preparation for ILE. In a qualitative design, the findings show that ILE has a negative washback effect on numerous micro and macro level variables.
Perception of Nonverbal Immediacy and Effective Teaching among Student Teachers: A Study across Cultural Extremes
Kemal Sinanzmen
International Online Journal of Educational Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: This study investigates the perception of nonverbal immediacy behavior with regard to effective teaching among student teachers of English language teaching (ELT) programs from a cultural aspect. Nonverbal immediacy behavior fosters various educational objectives such as affective learning, cognitive learning and motivation. Like many aspects of communication, nonverbal immediacy behavior constitutes cultural components that display differences among cultures. The present research was conducted on 450 student teachers studying in ELT undergraduate programs in Japan, Turkey and the USA. Nonverbal Immediacy Scale and a questionnaire item were utilized in a survey model. The findings indicated that each of the cultures considers nonverbal immediacy as an indispensable part of effective teaching, which also revealed that nonverbal immediacy positively correlates with effective teaching. Also American student teachers believe 'touching' is a critical variable in defining effective teaching. This study indicated while the perceptions of the nonverbal immediacy behavior vary across cultures, its use in effective teaching is considered to beindispensable by the student teachers.
A Comparison of Reading Comprehension, Reading Rate and Reading Error Performances of the Students with Mental Retardation Attending Inclusive Education and Special Education Classes (The Sample of orum Province)

International Online Journal of Educational Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to the compare the reading comprehension, reading rate and readingerror performances of students with mental retardation attending inclusive education and specialeducation classes. The students were chosen from 15 elementary schools in Corum. The study groupconsisted of 5th and 8th grade inclusive education and special education students. A total of 55students participated in the study. In order to collect study data; sample stories, readingcomprehension measurement tools and recording charts were developed. For the data analysis, aMann-Whitney U test was used as a nonparametric statistical testing. Study results showed thatthere was no statistical difference among reading rate, reading error and reading comprehensionscores of the 5th grade students attending inclusive education and special education classrooms.However, there was a statistical difference on the scores of reading errors in a minute and whole textand on the inferential comprehension of the students attending 8th grade inclusive educationclassrooms. In contrast to these findings, there was no statistical difference between the literalcomprehension and reading rate scores of the students. The results of the study were discussed andthe suggestions for practice were provided.

Necatibey Faculty of Education, Electronic Journal of Science and Mathematics Education , 2009,
Abstract: This study was designed to determine how, after the implementation of the new elementary school Science and Technology Course curriculum, 7th and 9th grade students perceive, construct in their mind the concept of energy and related concepts; and how the perceptions change over time. Thus, a questionnaire consisting of four open-ended questions was administrated to a total of 120 among 6th-, 7th- and 8th-grade students. A qualitative analysis of the data indicated that students have difficulties in constructing the concepts of energy, energy supply, form of energy and transportation of energy.

Journal of Neurological Sciences , 2008,
Abstract: Background: Corticosteroids have been widely used in attacks of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Clinically Isolated Syndromes but may rarely cause psychiatric manifestations, such as depression, mania, psychosis and delirium. Steroid-induced mood disorders have common clinical features, such as subacute onset, manic predominance and having psychotic history.Case Presentation: A 28 year-old housewife who had presented with a sudden blurring of vision had been diagnosed MS and applied 1000 mg/day intravenous methylprednisolone therapy for 10 days as a MS attack therapy in another hospital 20 days ago. One week after the steroid therapy she was taken to our outpatient clinic with paranoia, aggressive behaviors and disorientation. Neurological examination was normal except right optic neuritis. Brain MRI revealed periventricular and cerebellar demyelination. In her medical history she had behavioral pathologies as paranoia, aggression, visual hallucinations 5 years ago and her symptoms recovered without any psychiatric treatment less than one month. She didn't have another attack except optic neuritis, therefore we considered her diagnosis as Clinically Isolated Syndrome. After psychiatry consultation olanzapine at 20 mg/day was initiated and psychiatric excitations were taken under control.Conclusions: Intravenous methylprednisolone is usually administered in 0,5-1 gr/day dosage for 3-10 days in MS. It is considered that there's no significant difference between the administration periods in terms of the efficacy. We consider that it's important to take the psychiatric history before the steroid therapy and to reevaluate the necessity of the high dose steroid therapy and to choose the minimum dosage and period for the patients that have psychotic attack history.

International Journal of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery (IJOHNS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ijohns.2012.12003
Abstract: Objectives: The aim of the present study was to analyze the recovery rate of symptoms in patients with adenoid hypertrophy and investigate the role of nasal pathologies, allergy and gastroesophageal reflux (GER) as the reason of failure in patients with persistent symptoms. Patients and Methods: Patients undergoing adenoidectomy were enrolled in this study. There were 58 males and 42 females, aged between 1 - 13 years (mean ± SD: 4.9 ± 2.2 years). The parents of each child were questioned about the following symptoms; apnea, nasal obstruction, mouth breathing, snoring and nasal discharge. Presence or absence of nasal obstruction due to septal deviation and/or chonchal hypertrophy was noted. All children were evaluated for GER by upper gastrointestinal endoscopy or pH monitorization and for allergy by specific IgE analysis or skin prick test. Three months after the operation the children were re-examined and their parents were interviewed about persistent symptoms. Patients with persistent symptoms were re-evaluated with rigid endoscopy for residual adenoid vegetation. Results: Apnea was cleared in the entire group postoperatively. However, 9 patients complained of nasal obstruction, 16 patients had mouth breathing, 9 patients had snoring and 17 patients continued to have nasal discharge two months after the operation. Statistical assessment showed a significant difference for each symptom between the pre- and postoperative level (p < 0.001). In the re-examination of the patients with persistent symptoms, none of them were found to have adenoid vegetation greater than grade 1. However, 71% of these patients had nasal pathology, 50% had allergy and 50% had GER. Conclusions: Adenoidectomy alone is an effective treatment for nasal obstruction and obstructive sleep symptoms in children. Persistent obstructive symptoms are usually due to nasal pathology and allergy.

Abstract: Aim: Resistance to gram negative bacilli is increasing all over the world. In this study, theresistance of gram negative bacilli, which were isolated from inpatients, was evaluated forselected antibiotics. The aim of this study was to acquire the significant results for empirictherapy.Material and Method: Eight hundered ninety eight strains which were isolated from inpatientswere investigated between May 2003 and April 2005 from clinical speciments at DicleUniversity Hospital, Diyarbakir. The microdiluation test was used to determine for antibioticsresistance.Findings: Escherichia coli (n=282), Enterobacter spp. (n=215), Pseudomonas aeruginosa(n=101), Klebsiella spp. (n=95), Stenotrophomanas maltophilia (n=69) and Acinetobacter spp.(n=52) were the most frequent isolates. The resistance ratio among whole isolates againstceftriaxone was 73%, cefotaxime 68%, ceftazidime 63%, trimetoprim/sulfamethoxazole 60%,ciprofloksasin 51%, amikasin 20%, imipenem 3% and meropenem 2%. The resistance to thethird generation cephalosporins, trimetoprim/sulfamethoxazole and ciprofloxacin was foundhigher than other antibiotics in this study.Results: In conclusion, antimicrobial resistance must be monitored for each hospital for areasonable empirical antibiotic therapy. Surveillance studies might be useful for empiricaltreatment approach.

Dicle Medical Journal , 2012,
Abstract: Myxoma is the most common benign primary tumor of theheart. Carney syndrome is an autosomal dominant disordercharacterized by myxomas (heart, skin, breast tissue),skin pigmentation, myxoid fibroadenomas of the breast,endocrine neoplasia. The most frequent signs of endocrineorgan involvement are adrenocorticotropic hormone(ACTH) production-dependent Cushing’s syndrome, acromegalyand thyroid and testicular tumors. Surgery isthe only treatment modality of the cardiac myxomas. Theother tumoral formations in the syndrome require differenttreatment modalities according to the localization,size and clinical status of the secreted hormones. A thirtyeight years old female patient was presented to generalsurgery outpatient clinic with complaints of fatigue, palpitations,weight gain, chest pigmentation and on her physicalexamination left breast mass was detected. The massbiopsy was reported as fibroelastoma. The patient wasconsulted to the cardiology clinic due to palpitation complaintand echocardiography revealed a mobile 40 x50mm sized mass inside the left atrium. Tumor resectionwas performed with cardiopulmonary bypass. Patient wasdischarged at the postoperative 5th day. The histopathologicalexamination of the mass was reported as myxoma.Key words: Carney Syndrome, fibroelastoma, myxoma
