Experimental Political Science and the Study of Causality - From Nature to the Lab (Paperback): Rebecca B. Morton, Kenneth C.... Experimental Political Science and the Study of Causality - From Nature to the Lab (Paperback)

Increasingly, political scientists use the term 'experiment' or 'experimental' to describe their empirical research. One of the primary reasons for doing so is the advantage of experiments in establishing causal inferences. In this book, Rebecca B. Morton and Kenneth C. Williams discuss in detail how experiments and experimental reasoning with observational data can help researchers determine causality. They explore how control and random assignment mechanisms work, examining both the Rubin causal model and the formal theory approaches to causality. They also cover general topics in experimentation such as the history of experimentation in political science; internal and external validity of experimental research; types of experiments - field, laboratory, virtual, and survey - and how to choose, recruit, and motivate subjects in experiments. They investigate ethical issues in experimentation, the process of securing approval from institutional review boards for human subject research, and the use of deception in experimentation.

Self-Acceptance - A Clinical Book The Use of Pastoral Care in Ministry Research has proven that stress and burnout among clergy are multiphasic because of its spiritual and secular demands and expectations from others. This book examines the reasons why clergy persons are hesitant to receive assistance from pastoral counselors as they enter the African Methodist Episcopal church. The question: Why is pastoral counseling not an instructional component in the preparation for ministry in the Board of Examiners? This book emphasizes the need for Pastoral Care in the church with various examples of Case Studies. It suggests a method of approaching oneself and a possible parishioner/client in an acceptance attitude and modality for Pastoral Care. It further shows the need to take care of one's self in the ministry and identify the need to solicit professional help from a specialist.

Learning by Voting - Sequential Choices in Presidential Primaries and Other Elections (Hardcover): Rebecca B. Morton, Kenneth... Learning by Voting - Sequential Choices in Presidential Primaries and Other Elections (Hardcover)
Rebecca B. Morton, Kenneth C. Williams
R2,252 Discovery Miles 22 520 Ships in 10 - 20 working days

The presidential primary season used to be a long sequence of elections. In recent years many states have moved their presidential primaries earlier in the year in the belief that this increases their influence over the choice of presidential nominees. Similarly, in the past most voters have gone to a polling place and voted on election day. Now an increasing number of voters are not voting on election day but are using mail-in or absentee ballots to vote, often weeks before other voters.
Does the movement to a large number of early presidential primaries reduce the ability of voters to learn about the candidates? Do voters who vote early miss important information by not following the entire campaign, or are they, as some argue, more partisan? In a unique study Rebecca B. Morton and Kenneth C. Williams investigate the impact these changes have on the choices voters make. The authors combine a formal, theoretical model to derive hypotheses with experiments, elections conducted in labs, to test the hypotheses.
Their analysis finds that sequence in voting does matter. In simultaneous voting elections well-known candidates are more likely to win, even if that candidate is the first preference of only a minority of the voters and would be defeated by another candidate, if that candidate were better known. These results support the concerns of policy makers that front-loaded primaries prevent voters from learning during the primary process. The authors also find evidence that in sequential elections those who vote on election day have the benefit of information received throughout the whole course of the campaign, thus supporting concerns with mail-in ballots and other early balloting procedures.
This book will interest scholars interested in elections, the design of electoral systems, and voting behavior as well as the use of formal modeling and experiments in the study of politics. It is written in a manner that can be easily read by those in the public concerned with presidential elections and voting.

Creating Physical & Emotional Security in Schools (Paperback, 2nd ed.): Kenneth C. Williams Creating Physical & Emotional Security in Schools (Paperback, 2nd ed.)

Creating Physical & Emotional Security in Schools (2nd Edition) offers tools and strategies to teach K 8 principals how to build caring learning communities. In this addition to the Essentials for Principals series, author Kenneth C. Williams addresses behavior, conflict, and crisis management and presents practical, research-based methods for developing a welcoming, supportive school environment. By setting high expectations for students, teachers, and themselves, principals can instill the confidence and security necessary for student success. Readers will learn how to build healthy relationships with students, reach out to families and community members, and support teachers through instruction, communication, and collaboration.

In chapter 1, Williams defines a caring learning community and gives school leaders the tools to develop one. He details the ways principals can nurture supportive relationships with their students, cultivate student initiative and resilience, establish high expectations for staff, students, and other stakeholders, encourage parent involvement, and create a positive, welcoming school environment.

Chapter 2 shows principals how to help students deal with conflict and anger, how to integrate conflict management strategies into the school culture, and how to develop schoolwide conflict-management strategies for problem solving and conflict resolution.

Chapter 3 examines how to develop an effective schoolwide policy for behavior and discipline that focuses on teaching behavioral expectations, how to use data for plan improvement, and when to use the office to address problematic behavior.

The author shows principals how to address and prevent bullying, including cyberbullying, and how to enlist the help of parents and school counselors in chapter 4.

Chapter 5 addresses issues of safety and security and provides tips for creating a physically safe environment and planning for a crisis. The Afterword provides some final thoughts for school leaders.

Introduction to Game Theory - A Behavioral Approach (Paperback, New): Kenneth C. Williams Introduction to Game Theory - A Behavioral Approach (Paperback, New)
Kenneth C. Williams
R2,044 Discovery Miles 20 440 Out of stock

Ideal for social science courses in game theory and research methods, Introduction to Game Theory: A Behavioral Approach explains basic game theory concepts--up to and including Bayesian Nash equilibrium--using results from laboratory experiments that examine how real people behave in standard modeled games. Working from the premise that the crux of game theory lies in thinking logically about a problem and formulating research questions based on theory, author Kenneth C. Williams takes a nontechnical, behavioral approach that is accessible to students with minimal math skills.
Incorporating a wide range of experiments with diverse designs, Introduction to Game Theory is also enhanced by numerous pedagogical features:
* Extensive problem sets, in-class experiments, and sample exams
* Numerical examples for all of the exercises
* Key terms and concepts for behavioral game theory--which differ from those for standard game theory--and a glossary
* Supplemental lecture material and Internet resources--online games, videos, lectures, problems sets, exams, and experiments that students can participate in
