ScienceIndex.com is a Social Sciences Network newly featuring the latest Arts and Education Research. The site was established in 1998 to index the very latest news, headlines, references and resources from science journals, books and websites worldwide. The site covers news in all fields of biology, business, chemistry, engineering, geography, health, mathematics and society. In the field of Society Sciences, the site has now included the two new categories Arts and Education. While the Arts section covers objects subject to aesthetic criteria such as paintings, sculptures, and drawings, the Education section deals with the act or process of imparting or acquiring particular knowledge or skills, as for a profession.
ScienceIndex.com’s Social Research Category covers the totality of social relationships among humans. Its twelve sections include anthropology, archaeology, arts, education, family, history, law and crime, linguistics, literature, philosophy, politics, and religion. Users can receive alerts for newly published content in this category by subscribing to ScienceIndex.com’s Social Research RSS feed.
ScienceIndex.com’s new Arts section covers objects subject to aesthetic criteria such as paintings, sculptures, and drawings. It currently contains 2,929 articles partly derived from over 175 scientific Arts journals. The latest articles in this category are also available through an Arts Research RSS feed. One of the latest additions to this section covers representation and intentionality in bilingual television and theater for youth in the United States. This article examines the goals and outcomes of theatrical productions that claim to celebrate bilingualism and multiculturalism in the USA and explores questions including how a country reconciles its hostility toward immigration with its desire to capitalize on marketing Latino/a cartoon characters to children. Another article investigates Theseus and Shakespeare for the politics of their poets. It provides a wider context for the character’s pronouncements by considering the ancient quarrel between philosophy and poetry and early modern poetic theories and brings new insights into Theseus and the political implications of his comments on poetry.
ScienceIndex.com’s new Education section deals with the act or process of imparting or acquiring particular knowledge or skills, as for a profession. It currently contains over 16,376 articles partly derived from over 550 scientific Education journals. The latest articles in this section are also available through an Education Research RSS feed. One recently included article in this section covers public/private partnerships and the democratization of education. This article analyzes the public-private relation and its consequences for the democratic management of schools in Brazil. The authors conclude that the relationship between public and private are manifested in the current period both in terms of change of ownership, and in relation to what remains in state ownership, but rearranges educational processes in the logic of the market. Another article in this section covers the role of mathematics anxiety from parental involvement to children’s mathematical performance. The study includes low-income, ethnic minority parents and their children residing in a large urban center in the United States and its results indicate that parents influence children’s mathematics achievement by reducing mathematics anxiety, particularly for more difficult kinds of mathematics. The authors conclude that policies and programs targeting parental involvement in mathematics should focus on home-based practices that do not require technical mathematical skills. Parents should receive training, resources, and support on culturally appropriate ways to create home learning environments that foster high expectations for children’s success in mathematics.
