    • Bridging the gap between dance and theatre: A physical approach to teaching theatre at a secondary level

      Dox, Donnalee; McCammon, Laura; Heald, Lorie Elizabeth (The University of Arizona., 1999)
      The body has within it an intelligent force, a cognitive power, which deserves recognition. This cognitive power is defined in this thesis as physical cognition, a way of knowing, learning, and responding that occurs within the body and comes from the body. There is currently an imbalance in the relationship between mental and physical cognition in secondary education. This imbalance has permeated Western thought since Descartes claimed that the thinking being is separate from the bodily being. With requirements for physical education and fine arts at the bare minimum, there is a need for physical engagement in learning in secondary education. Offering a teaching model that includes movement, acting, and Anne Bogart's Viewpoints, this model provides a step by step plan for both teaching theatre from a physical perspective and developing physical cognition. It is through this integration of mind and body that education of the whole person begins.
    • Bridging the Gap: Teacher Voices, the Writing Process Through Art, and Creating an Art Museum Website

      Garber, Elizabeth; Farrar, Chelsea Jane; Shin, Ryan; McKean, Barbara; Garber, Elizabeth (The University of Arizona., 2013)
      Through a qualitative case study this research examines the needs of three generalist high school teachers in relation to arts integration, writing, critical thinking, and the art museum website. The study also examines the perspectives of art museum educators in relation to how museum websites can be used to support teaching the writing process in the school classroom. Arts integration and the museum website are analyzed in depth through literature review and in-depth semi structured interviews. This research aims to present a model for collaborative website design where the museum website is designed around classroom teachers' curricular needs.

    • Bringing the Lexical Approach to TAFL: Evaluating the Primary Lexicon in Part One of the Al-Kitaab Fii Ta'allum Al-'Arabiyya Arabic as a Foreign Language Textbook Series

      Shiri, Sonia; Moser, Janelle Nicole; Farwaneh, Samira; Fielder, Grace E. (The University of Arizona., 2013)
      This study proposes two models for exploring the lexical contents of Part One of the most popular Arabic as a Foreign Language textbook series, Al-Kitaab fii Ta'allum Al-'Arabiyya. Through the lens of a word families framework, this study hypothesizes on the contents and arrangement of the L2 Arabic mental lexicon after completing the textbook. Through counting lexemes, lemmas, and word family members, it is possible to gain insight into the quantity of vocabulary items present within the textbook outside of traditional measures like the triconsonantal root. Through a frequency-based framework, this study analyzes textbook vocabulary items in light of the 5,000 most frequent lemmas in the language from a corpus of 30 million tokens from A Frequency Dictionary of Arabic (Buckwalter and Parkinson: 2011). A comparison between textbook vocabulary and frequency data points to the relationship between the vocabulary studied by AFL learners and the most widely used forms in the language as a whole. While this study gives special consideration to frequency data up to the 3,000 word level, the sheer amount of lexical knowledge necessary for reading Arabic newspapers and novels necessitates integration of frequency-derived data at even the novice level. A lexical and frequency-based approach to AFL instruction and curriculum design may prove helpful in decreasing the decidedly large vocabulary burden (Nation: 1990, cited in Young: 2011) for learners of Arabic as a Foreign Language.

    • Bromide as an environmental tracer in ground water of the Tucson Basin, Arizona

      Koglin, Eric Norman.; Davis, Stanley N.; Wilson, L. G.; Nelson, George; Simpson, Eugene S. (The University of Arizona., 1984)
      Bromide was used as an environmental tracer to determine the possible sources of natural and man-made recharge to the ground water of the Tucson basin. Numerous well, rainfall, runoff, and sewage samples were collected and analyzed for bromide and chloride. The bromide was determined by neutron activation analysis. Bromide concentrations in the ground water ranged from 0.036 to 2.24 mg/l and the chloride concentrations ranged from 3.2 to 332.2 mg/l. The average Cl/Br ratio of the ground water samples is about 130. The bromide distribution suggests the presence of at least four dominant ground-water zones, each differing in chemical character. This observation agrees with those made in previous investigations which have used different hydrologic and geochemical methods. Most of the ground water in the basin is recharged by natural sources. However, the influence of man-made sources is well documented locally. The results of the bromide analyses strongly suggest that they can be used to delineate different sources of recharge.
    • Brown-headed cowbird parasitism of neotropical migratory songbirds in riparian areas along the lower Colorado river

      Averill, Annalaura, 1967-; Morrison, Michael L.; Mannan, R. William; Guertin, D. Philip (The University of Arizona., 1996)
      Populations of several riparian-obligate, neotropical migratory songbirds have declined in recent years, partly due to brood parasitism by brown-headed cowbirds (Molothrus ater). In 1994 and 1995, 1 measured parasitism rates and nesting success of 4 riparian-obligate, neotropical migrants breeding in the lower Colorado River valley. Because vegetation characteristics of nest sites may influence cowbird parasitism and host nesting success, I also measured vegetation attributes associated with nest-site selection. Parasitism rates were 40-90%, and reproductive success was significantly lower in parasitized nests. Foliage cover may influence host nest-site selection and prevent cowbird nest discovery. The patchy distribution of native tree species may have aided cowbird nest discovery by providing elevated survey perches. Saltcedar (Tamarix ramosissima) was an important understory component providing foliage cover at nests. Understanding vegetation characteristics associated with host and cowbird nest-site selection should be useful in riparian restoration projects and cowbird control.
