I will create a poster which describes the experiences of LiLi, a second language learner These experiences include immersion into the classroom, no involvement in the pull-out program, and a description of her struggle to understand her new environment. I will present the volunteer work I have completed over the past year in an effort to help LiLi with her reading, and her general academic success. I will show what methods worked for her and what methods did not, and give proposed recommendations for the school. The data collected for this presentation are based on direct interaction with LiLi, over 50 hours of recorded observations in and out of the classroom, and conversations with her teacher.
There have been many controversies regarding primate intelligence, and whether primates possess language and can communicate with humans, Years of study have gone into theses questions, and many researchers have become well known for their discoveries. The findings of primate research conducted by such prominent investigators as Jane Goodall, Diane Fossey, and Penny Patterson will be included in this presentation. A definition of language in relationship to how primates express themselves in order to be understood will be offered, along with specific examples of evidence of language among primates and between primates and humans. This presentation will define what we consider language to be, how primates express themselves (such as through violations or sign-language) in order to be understood, and will discuss the findings of researchers such as Jane Goodall, Diane Fossey, and Penny Patterson. It will also include specific examples of evidence in favor of language among primates as well as between primates and humans.
Bark Beetles are highly destructive pests of deciduous and coniferous trees worldwide. In the New World, Beetles of the genus Dendroctonus are particularly harmful, attacking pine, fir, spruce, and larch in most forests of North America. This session will present the results of our investigation of the genetic differences within and among populations with the ultimate goals of better understanding evolutionary relationships in the genus as well as understanding genetic differences that contribute to greater or lesser destruction of forest lands.
