James Marcia (1991, 1994, 1999, 2002) expanded on Erikson’s theory of identity formation. Specifically, he focused on two essential processes in achieving a mature identity : exploration and commitment. Erikson’s observations about identity were extended by Marcia, who described four identity statuses : identity diffusion, foreclosure, moratorium and identity achievement. The present article describes the features of these four categories of identity status. It is concluded with the description of the formation of ethnic and racial identities. Ethnic and racial minority students are confronted with the challenge of forming an identity while living in two worlds – the values, beliefs, and behaviors of their group and those of the larger culture. These are highlighted in the present speculative article
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether vignettes could allow for differentiation of perceived effort, and if so, would perceived student effort have an effect on teacher impressions of students and whether they would refer for special education services. Eighty-six teachers with an average of eight years of teaching experience participated in the study. They read four vignettes of students experiencing learning difficulties and answered questions regarding their perceptions of student effort, overall impression of the student, and whether they would refer the student for special education services. Results indicated that the vignettes can be used to differentiate between perceptions of high and low effort. Results further indicated that high effort was associated with overall positive impressions of students, while low effort was associated with negative impressions. There was no significant relationship between perceived effort and referral for special education services.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate and measure the effectiveness of Handwriting Without Tears (HWT) modified gray block paper with letter writing on two preschool students diagnosed with developmental delays in pre-academics. Two students were selected from a self-contained special education preschool classroom in the Pacific Northwest. All the students in the classroom were diagnosed with Developmental Delays. The gray block paper intervention was used to teach both students how to write the letters in their first names. In baseline, both students were instructed to, “Write the letters of your name.” During baseline, both students were able to write some of the letters in their names. However, both students did so inconsistently and with many errors in orientation and formation of the letters. The final outcomes showed improvement in both students in their ability to write the letters of their name. The gray block paper proved to be an inexpensive and easy to implement technique for instructing students with developmental delays to learn and refine writing the letters of their names. Suggestions for alterations to the study were discussed.
The purpose of this research was to examine how teacher disposition affects student academic performance through the validity and reliability of a quantitative inventory instrument: The Teacher Dispositions Index [TDI] that measures the dispositions of effective teachers specified by the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium.
