An Alternative Conceptual Framework for Developing a Critical Cross-Cultural Communicative Competence.

The purpose of this paper is to share an alternative conceptual framework of cross-cultural communication using a theory adaptation critical research design. To achieve this goal, the paper presents a historical overview and discusses the characteristics of both Eastern and Western paradigms and their main principles with a focus on the Arabic-Islamic perspective and how the constructs of culture, communication, and critical cross-cultural communicative competence are theoretically conceptualized and developed from that perspective. Using a modified transactional or subjectivist epistemology critical approach, the paper makes links to valuable contributions that the Arabic-Islamic scholars bring to the field of cross-cultural/intercultural communication that is found to be deeply rooted in three concepts of self. These types of self are discussed within this alternative conceptual and theoretical framework and are found to be based on shared fundamental values that are social, psychological, and spiritual in nature.

Creating more equitable and socially-just quality education for English learners through esol and bilingual teacher professional development services: The case of rescs in Texas

This paper calls for quality professional development and support for teachers of English learners (ELs) when only 1 out of 10 of this student population is prepared to go to college and are not provided with quality education that they deserve. This study explores and describes the various professional development (PD) services that Texas Regional Education Service Centers (RESCs) offer teachers of ELs and identifies important areas of need. The focus was on the extent to which the need of ELs is met and crucial areas of in-service teacher PD that remain challenging based on input from the RESCs. Data revealed that RESCs provide many PD services that meet the need of ELs and identified other important areas that need attention and collaboration between RESCs and institutions of higher education. The reviewed literature corroborated these findings and showed that while the population of ELs continues to grow, the number of ESOL-certified and highly-qualified teachers who can provide effective instruction to these students has not kept pace with their growing numbers. Based on results from this study and the reviewed literature, research-based recommendations are shared to create more equitable and socially-just quality education for ELs.

Motivating Factors and Obstacles behind Grant Research: The Case of a Teaching Focused State College.

Faculty motivation to seek external funding includes the ability to conduct research and offer innovative programs and bring prestige and support for universities. However, faculty may decline to participate in the grant-seeking process. In order to better understand the reluctance of faculty to pursue grants, faculty in the College of Education at a Southern state university were asked the following questions in a case study: (1) What motivates you to pursue external funding? (2) What factors may pose an obstacle for you to engage in grant writing? and (3) What recommendations do you perceive as needed for you to engage in this activity? The findings indicated that the main motivating factors are freedom in conducting research (88%), freedom in research topic selection (84%), and ability to hire student workers and other faculty and staff to assist in research (77%). Among the obstacles, time was found to be the most challenging obstacle (80%). Many faculty members also agreed that
