How do educators, for example, define "academic performance?" or "play?" or "coping mechanisms?" Remember that other disciplines might define these differently and concepts are a place where you can really start to call out the epistemology of your discipline (as well as theories and assumptions.)||Article 3: The three groups were given a survey asking about their opinions on the importance of recess, from that sample, 9 were chosen to interview and expand on their thoughts towards the importance of recess for children. "The investigators interviewed three groups of subjects: parents of kindergardeners, preschool and elementary school teachers, and college and young professionals who participated in recess in kindergarden" (246). Good detail here. Using surveys is an empirical method. Do they hypothesize a finding? If so, they are using a deductive reasoning method. If not, perhaps they are exercising inductive reasoning. Make sure you can understand this more specifically -- and refer back to Repko's description of different kinds of methods (in Chapter 5 and 7) to help you. Remember that for each one of these elements you need to take a metacognitive approach and explain (versus simply quoting) how the discipline is working (in this case, what kind of method they are employing).|
|Education 2||Please update this table with your articles||How does mental and physical health play a role in student’s success in elementary school? Who is at greatest risk of poor mental and physical health? Who/how can people improve their mental and physical health?||Article 1: Phenomena:If mental health services are effective when given by school professionals, rathar than mental health professionals. |
This is not exactly phenomena but, instead, seems to reflect the article's research question. The phenomena are the "things" that are studied.
|Article 1: Effectiveness of mental health services integrated into ciriculum for elementary school aged children So, remember that concepts are vocabulary that are discipline-specific and that require definition within the context of the discipline. How do educators, for example, define "mental health services?" or "curriculum?" Remember that other disciplines might define these differently and concepts are a place where you can really start to call out the epistemology of your discipline (as well as theories and assumptions.)||Article 1: Methods: subjects were kindergarten-5th grade, service implemented by school professionals, not outside help, did database searches with keywords, then experts in student mental health reviewed each article to make sure they were focused on the question. This is a bit vague. Make sure that you are updating this table; I notice that you described this in your one-pagers more specifically. Would you say that this article is reviewing programs and their outcomes? Are the researchers relying on positivism or interpretivism in terms of their epistemology and what does this mean in terms of describing their methods? (see repko, p. 148). Make sure you can understand this more specifically -- and refer back to Repko's description of different kinds of methods (in Chapter 5 and 7) to help you. Remember that for each one of these elements you need to take a metacognitive approach and explain (versus simply quoting) how the discipline is working (in this case, what kind of method they are employing).|

Article 1) Addicts (speicifically opiod, but can pertain to any other kind of addict as well) Article 2:"The concept of alienation identifies a distinct kind of psychological or social ill; namely, one involving a problematic separation between a self and other that properly belong together" (Pg 1). I think it is safe to say that there are no "phenomena" in Philosophy that are not also disciplinary concepts. Indeed, this entire project is, in a sense, doing a philosophy of disciplines. Thus, make sure that you call this out as you teach your audience about the role that "concepts" play in this discipline. Concepts and epistemology and methods and assumptions are all mutually constitutive. Remember that you need to take a very metacognitive approach to teach us this discipline (and to using these articles as examples).
|Article 1) Examining different philosophers and their viewpoints (incl. Camus, Aristotle, and Sartre, along with religious figure St. Thomas Aquinas) Article 2: consists of 7 subcategories that describe alienation in depth; 1. The basic Idea, 2. disclaimers, 3. adjacent concepts, 4. subjective and objective alienation, 5. what makes a separation problamatic, 6. alienation and value, and 7. some (unsresolved) empiracle issues And so are the methods primarily based on interpretation and logic? Is there any empirical methodology? Again, zoom out so you teach us what you see at work here in Repko-ian terms.|

Excellent question and articles.||Article 1: "We are confronted with a perpetuation of disparities between and within nations, a worsening of poverty, hunger, ill health, and illiteracy, and the continuing deterioration of the ecosystems on which we depend for our well-being. However, integration of environment and development concerns, and greater attention to them will lead to the fullfilment of basic needs, improved living standards for all, better protected and managed ecosystems and a safer, more prosperous future."

Article 1: Sustainabillity, ecology, economics, history, political science, equitable development. Article 3:
Article 1: 10 categories of literature to address the questions of sustainabillity: Managerialsim, Policy, and Planning, Social Conditions, Environemntal Law, Environmental Science, Eco - design and the built environemnt, Ecological Economics, Eco Philosophy, Environmnetal Values and ethics, Environmental History and Human geography/ecology, Utopianism, anarchism, and bioregionalism, and Political ecology.Again, here you will need to describe the methods at work to your audience. Don't simply list them -- go back to Repko to find some language to help categorize the kinds of methods that this discipline employs.
|Earth Sciences||Update this table by listing your discipline-specific articles here.||Cause/effect of civilization (past, present, future) and how it has changed Earth||Article 1: "So, we are beginning with a very fragmentary field on the border of the earth sciences, social sciences and humanities with inputs from all these branches of knowledge that should be integrated in a comprehensive system on the base of new concepts and empiric historical geographical investigations". (pg1) Article 2: "As of 1995, 22% of recognized marine fisheries were overexploited or already depleted, and 44% more were at their limit of exploitation". (pg2) fossil fuels, toxicity, sustainability, w Article1: Different sciences use various methods for distingushing natural and anthropogenic trends in the evolution of environment. Avoid simply quoting from the articles. Pull out specifically what you see as the phenomena within this disciplinary perspective. And remember that most phenomena (especially when discussed in a scholarly article) are probably more appropriately concepts.||Article 1: History of civilzation, environmental situations, landscape and biospheric processes, paleogeography (pg. 101) Article 2: Marine fisheries exploitation evolution, adaptation, ecosystem, layers, biological processes, ecological resources, integration and ecological modification, growth in resource, biogeochemical cycles, growth of human population, man-dominated ecosystems, global carbon cycle (pg. 494) Good! So, remember that concepts are vocabulary that are discipline-specific and that require definition within the context of the discipline. You will have to teach your audience the disciplinary definitions of (some of) these. Remember that other disciplines might define these differently and concepts are a place where you can really start to call out the epistemology of your discipline (as well as theories and assumptions.)||Article 1: They distinguished 5 stages of ecosystems evolution. Then they assessed the extent of each type-stage among others in various periods and zones. (pg 2) "Climatologists interpret as anthropogenic the rise of CO2 concentrations in atmosphere perhaps due to fuel burning." (pg. 102) Article 2: "Remote sensing is a most useful technique, but only recently has there been a serious scientific effort to use high-resolution civilian satellite imagery to evaluate even the more visable forms of land transformation, such as deforestation, on continental to global scales". (pg 1) Article 1: Analysis of the structural model of spacial organizations in the contemorary world permits to reveal the important shift in the economy, social, cultural conditios of human impact on environment; formation of spacial communities, rural ecological complexes on the base of agriculture, urban ecology, expansion of spatial division, industrial revolution pg. (103-4) good. Again, boil this down also so that you can translate this to your audience -- you might use Repko in chapter 5 to help you identify most fundamentally what kind of methods these comprise. I am assuming these employ the scientific method of empirical study (are they based on deductive or inductive reasoning?)|
