1. Cain, Shelly Anderton. Levels of biofunctional embodiment of authentic understanding in the classroom: Shakespeare in secondary english classrooms.

Degree: 2011, University of Alabama

This study uses a 3x3x3 Latin square design to investigate the idea that understanding may be taught by means of biofunctionally embodied (BE) classroom practice. Three levels of biofunctional embodiment were manipulated as a within-subjects factor. The other two variables were three scenes from Shakespeare and three lessons each taught in the first, second, or third position with scene and lesson serving as between-subjects factors. The nine between-subjects conditions were first randomly assigned to nine different 9th grade classes. Then, each class was taught three lessons in counterbalanced order in order to manipulate levels of embodiment using a three phase educational model. The first phase in this model, teaching, and the third phase, testing, were identical across all lessons. The second phase, biofunctionally embodied rehearsal, was different across the three within-subjects level of biofunctional embodiment in presentation material (audio, traditional film, and modern film) and the student rehearsal (silent, verbal, and enacted) of the Shakespeare scene Dependent measures completed by students during the testing phase include an interest activity, a "modified recall of understanding" (MRU) multiple-choice activity, and an open-ended "remembering your own understanding" (RYOU) task. A series of ANOVA procedures was used to analyze effects of each of the independent variables on student performance. The prediction of interest is that the higher the level of embodiment, the higher the level of understanding and interest.

2. Rocha, Patricia A. Stories Of School And The Storied Lives Of Latina/O Elementary Principals: A Narrative Inquiry.

Degree: PhD, School Improvement, 2016, Texas State University – San Marcos

This qualitative study explored the storied lives of three Latina/o elementary Principals. The research partners included two individuals and the author of this dissertation. The study employed a narrative inquiry approach and is rooted in an epistemological notion of narrative inquiry and Chicana/o Ways of Knowing. The purpose of this narrative inquiry was to understand not only stories of schools, but the social, cultural, and familial stories that shape and inform Latina/o school principals’ leadership, as well. A further purpose was to understand how their social, cultural, familial, and institutional stories conflicted with the research partners’ story of school and how they negotiated conflicts. Through a narrative inquiry approach, field texts of their narratives were collected using a variety of strategies. Field texts were composed from extensive conversations between the researcher and the two partners. The research partners were invited to tell and retell stories of their own experience of schools both as students and as elementary school principals. Field texts were then analyzed by applying a framework of analysis that included: (a) the notions of three dimensional space (e.g. time, space, and sociality); (b) chronology, epiphanies, and pivotal moments; and (c) tenets of Chicana/o Ways of Knowing. From the analysis, poetic transcriptions were created to represent the stories related by the research partners. Their shared stories highlight a politic of pasión that informed their leadership. Implications for further research are presented within in the framework of the ecologies of knowing. Advisors/Committee Members: Guajardo, Miguel A. (advisor), Byrne-Jimenez, Monica (committee member), Martinez, Melissa A. (committee member), Oliver, John (committee member).

3. Steele, Margaret. Health As Embodied Authenticity.

Degree: 2015, Marquette University

This dissertation offers a phenomenological and existential account of health. It considers the model of health that is dominant in the contemporary USA. Using the example of fatness, this dissertation argues that the dominant model of health is deeply flawed, because of its largely unexamined commitment to naturalism and positivism (in the Husserlian senses of these terms). It concludes that purported alternatives to the dominant model, such as the Foucault-influenced constructivist approach to health, fail to respond adequately to the problems posed by naturalism and positivism. Instead, this dissertation proposes a model of health as embodied authenticity. This model is developed on the basis of Edmund Husserl's account of embodiment and Simone de Beauvoir's account of action. The central tenet of this model is that health is the embodied aspect of authentic action. That is, health is a feature not of bodies but of actions. A person is acting healthily  – and thus, can be said to `be healthy'  – to the extent that she or he is engaged in physical action in pursuit of goals which are themselves conducive to the freedom of the agent her or himself and to the freedom of other persons. The goals themselves and the likelihood of the actions to be conducive to these goals must be capable of standing up to intersubjective critique in order for the person's action to be authentic and thus healthy. This model of health is then applied to the case of fatness, in order to show that it squares better with lived experience than the previously available models of health. This dissertation concludes with a discussion of freedom as central to health. Advisors/Committee Members: Monahan, Michael, Luft, Sebastian, Tobin, Theresa.
