The Effectiveness of Sociometric Grouping in Improving the Social Status of Rejected Girls in Eighth-grade Homemaking Classes

The Effectiveness of Sociometric Grouping in Improving the Social Status of Rejected Girls in Eighth-grade Homemaking Classes

Date: August 1953
Creator: Bissell, Mary Elvira
Description: The purpose of the present study is to determine the effectiveness of sociometric groupings in bringing about improved social status of rejected girls in eighth-grade homemaking classes. Specifically, the study seeks to answer to the questions: Do significant changes occur in personal and social adjustment when pupils are placed in groups according to their choice? Is there evidence of improved social status of rejected pupils when sociometric groupings are used throughout the year?

Effectiveness of the Problem-Solving Method in Developing Thinking Ability in Homemaking Students

Effectiveness of the Problem-Solving Method in Developing Thinking Ability in Homemaking Students

Date: 1951
Creator: Baker, Frances Basye
Description: This study attempts to compare the thinking abilities of homemaking girls with the thinking abilities of girls not taking homemaking. By emphasizing the problem-solving method in the teaching of an experimental unit, it proposes to determine whether homemaking students show greater gains in thinking ability at the end of the school year than non-homemaking students. The investigator proposes to find out if the student taught by techniques of problem-solving forms thinking habits superior to habits formed by those students who have not been taught by this method as extensively as homemaking students.

Effectiveness of the Undergraduate Curriculum in Teacher Education in Developing Desired Teaching Competencies

Effectiveness of the Undergraduate Curriculum in Teacher Education in Developing Desired Teaching Competencies

Date: August 1959
Creator: Turkett, Arlie Keith
Description: The purpose of this study is to identify and evaluate the competencies that a person who desires to teach should possess in order to be an effective classroom teacher. Identification of these competencies will be made from evidence obtained through a consensus of student's opinions, these opinions to be solicited from students currently enrolled in courses required for a major in elementary education, and from the consensus of faculty members who ware currently teaching these courses.

Effects of Antigen Injection on Titer of C'3 and C'4 Complement Components of Rat Serum

Effects of Antigen Injection on Titer of C'3 and C'4 Complement Components of Rat Serum

Date: August 1957
Creator: Whalen, Paul Lorrance
Description: This work attempts to establish some phenomenon of a rise in titer of C'3 and C'4 due to antigenic stimulation. Normal level of complement is established and compared to other workers as well as against guinea pig levels. Young rats were bled to establish normal levels of complement. The animals were then injected with an antigenic substance and after a period of seven days were bled again to determine the level of complement. Various antigenic and non-antigenic substances were used as well as normal saline injections for control.

The Effects of Common Electrolytes on Growth and Development of Selected Species of Aquatic Actinomycetes

The Effects of Common Electrolytes on Growth and Development of Selected Species of Aquatic Actinomycetes

Date: August 1959
Creator: Sissom, Stanley L.
Description: The role that aquatic actinomycetes play, in the production of tastes and odors in water supplies has been investigated since 1948. The ability of these organisms to produce by-products in lakes and streams, which renders the water unpalatable, is of considerable public health importance. It is desirable that the waterworks industry has as much information as possible concerning the factors that contribute to the growth of these organisms. Since it appears that the aquatic actinomycetes may be isolated from most fresh-water sources, the problem of diversified environments and nutritional requirements offers an excellent field of investigation. The fresh-waters of the world contain variable quantities of electrolytes that may determine in part the biological activity of these organisms. The unsolved questions in this instance are concerned with the electrolytes present and their quantitative effects on the growth and development of these forms.

The Effects of Heparin on the Development of Resistance to Antibiotics by Staphylococcus Aureus

The Effects of Heparin on the Development of Resistance to Antibiotics by Staphylococcus Aureus

Date: August 1959
Creator: Blanton, William George
Description: Since heparin combines with some antibiotics to decrease the toxicity of the antibiotic to the patien, the purpose of this investigation is to determine whether it has any effect upon the development of resistance to antibiotics by Staphylococcus aureus.
