Donald wise, phd

CAPEA 2010-2011 President

Welcome to Volume 23 of Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, the Journal of the California Association of Professors of Educational Administration. In this volume, you will find the work of authors from across the US that informs our work in preparing leaders for our schools.

This volume contains six selections that reflect several CAPEA focus areas of our journal. In seeking manuscripts, the editors felt that we would have the greatest diversity if we did not limit this volume of the journal to any one theme, but rather to all five areas: 1) Teaching Educational Administration, 2) Diversity and Social Justice , 3) Technology, 4) Research , and 5) Advocacy.

In the first article, Leigh T. Barton describes her study of students in an educational leadership program responding to the prompt, “Why me?”. Using content analysis, Leigh helps us understand why educators are willing to step forward to become leaders, in spite of pressures from their peers. The results provide some surprises that differ somewhat from the current literature.

Dan Cunniff describes a university/school collaboration in which university faculty provided consulting, mentoring, and coaching to a new school principal and a new teacher. Besides the face-to-face meetings, technology, such as video conferencing was used to maintain regular communication. The article provides information on a number of new technologies available to professors.

Carol Gallegos and Donald Wise provide the results of a study of the issues surrounding the reclassification of English learners and implications for students, teachers, and leaders. Across the nation and especially in California, school leaders and those who prepare them must be aware that the education and reclassification of students who do not speak English as a first language is an issue rapidly moving to the forefront.

One can hear the clear and compelling voices of high school students labeled “at risk” in the article by Philip Mirci, Corey Loomis, and Phyllis Hensley. In the current dynamic of closing the achievement gap, these voices provide clarity for school leaders and those who prepare leaders about what we should do and not do in our schools.

Michael J. Moody provides useful insights into the nature of the relationship between boards of education and the school superintendent. His historical analysis provides a deeper understanding of why many current practices may still be in place today, even though they do not serve the purposes that may have been intended.

With so many doctoral programs emerging in California, the article by Barbara Storms, Michael J. Prada, and E. Nichole Donahue is of particular interest to those advising doctoral students. The two co-authors were doctoral student advisees of Dr. Storms. May useful hints are presented to strengthen the advising relationship.

We hope that you will find the articles in Volume 23 of interest and useful to you as you prepare future school leaders across the nation and world. On behalf of the over 130 members of CAPEA throughout California, I commend you in your work of preparing leaders. I am confident that the articles contained herein will further your understanding of the serious and significant work we all have before us. CAPEA is proud to serve you in that endeavor.

Donald Wise, California State University Fresno

Questions & Answers

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

what is nano technology

what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
