Students enrolled in Dr. Dianne Turner's ART 3100 "Art in the Elementary Classroom" are teacher candidates majoring in Liberal Studies, Special Education, Child, Family and Adolescent Studies, and Art Education. ART 3100 is a Service Learning Course which means the students spend about 10 hours in the classroom teaching art. These students will eventually enter a program to earn a credential.
This semester the students are studying artists of the 1980s and will be teaching about them at Ronald Reagan Elementary School (in grades 1, 2, and 4) with the help from CSUB Alumna Mrs. Ellen Ansolabehere, to develop their skills for when they want to become classroom teachers.
To help understand what the 80s culture is about students presented a celebration of presentations at the CSUB campus that will also be presented to the Reagan children. The topics they presented were on 80s children's television, 80s inventions, 80s vocabulary, 80s fashion, and much more.
Congratulations to our very own AH Dean's Assistant, Matthew McClellan who won at the Student Research Competition held on March 10th!! Matthew also recently earned his Master's degree in Public Administration.
His research presentation was titled “Supporting LGBTQ+ students: Evaluating CSUB’s campus resources” and his abstract is as follows:
Public universities have and are working to create a more inclusive atmosphere on campus. However, having limited resources is not enough to create a culture of inclusivity. The experience of inclusivity needs to be studied from the perspective of those for whom it is intended. This Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis explored twenty-four public university student’s experiences of LGBTQ SafeZone resources through in-depth interviews. The major overarching finding was one of “invisibility”. Students reported feelings of loneliness and isolation, and they described a sense of being an outsider. This theme was broken into sub-themes of visibility, education, and the SafeZone project. Based on these themes I recommend promoting visibility, facilitating campus education, and creating safe spaces. This study has implications for public administration because it draws lessons on developing inclusive administrative cultures in complex and large public organizations.
