Louisiana
(Slp .: t. 341; Ibp. 99'6 "; b. 28 '; dr. 14'; a. 16 lank
24 stuks. )

Die eerste Louisiana is in 1812 in New Orleans, La, gebou vir handelaarsdiens op die Mississippi; in September daardie jaar deur die vloot gekoop en onmiddellik in diens geneem met die klein mag wat New Orleans verdedig teen Britse inval.

Aan die New Orleans -stasie, ongewapen en nie toegerus deur die eerste twee jaar van die oorlog nie, is Louisiana in Augustus 1814 as vlagskip van kommodoor Daniel T. Patterson gemaak, haar gewere ontvang en saam met die skoener Carolina en 'n handvol kanonbote bereid om beskerm die stad teen aanvalle deur die see. Die swaarste en sterkste gewapende skip in Patterson se klein vloot, die sloep het gedien as 'n drywende battery, langs die regteroewer van die Mississippi gestasioneer om enige moontlike aanval deur land of see te dek.

Teen 23 Desember land die Britse leër sy magte slegs 9 myl onder New Orleans, en Commodore Patterson beveel Louisiana en Carolina om stroomaf te vaar en aan te val, ter ondersteuning van generaal Jackson se haastig bymekaargemaakte troepe. Die sloep kon egter nie vaar nie, maar die volgende dag het hy by Carolina aangesluit en die Britte vir die volgende 4 dae op die sak geslaan, wat hul opmars onhoudbaar gemaak het en Jackson tyd gegee het om in te grawe. Die nag van 27 Desember word Carolina getref deur vyand se vuur en opgeblaas, wat Louisiana die enigste vlootvaartuig in New Orleans gelaat het.

Die Britte het op die 28ste vorentoe beweeg, maar die swaar battery van L Louisiana het hulle teruggedwing. Alhoewel hulle teruggekap het met 'n onophoudelike kanonade van 7 uur, kon die sloep byna 800 rondtes op die vyand afvuur terwyl slegs een man gewond is. Louisiana val op 30 Desember af met die vernietiging van die vyand met 'n verwoestende flankvuur. Intussen is die kusgewere van die sloep aan wal gebring en in afskermings geplaas om die vyand te bombardeer. Terwyl die Engelse die aanval aangehou het, ondersteun Louisiana generaal Jackson se soldate met akkurate vuur totdat die Britse veterane teen sononder, 8 Januarie 1815, in die laaste aanval rampspoedig verslaan is en die waardevolle hawe van New Orleans Amerikaans gebly het. Generaal Jackson het 'n welverdiende hulde gebring aan die sleutelrol van die vloot in hierdie groot oorwinning

Louisiana is daarna in New Orleans ontmantel en neergelê, en in 1821 is dit verbreek.

Louis Park Senior Hoërskool klas van 1962

Die Parkettes bestaan ​​uit tot 40 meisies per jaar tussen die ouderdomme van 15 en 17. Elke jaar is proewe gehou om die ouer meisies te vervang.

Die Parkettes was 'n onafhanklike organisasie, apart van die hoërskool. Hulle oefen in en om die skool, en in kleiner groepe tree hulle op as die cheerleaders van die hoërskool.

Die Parkette -program was 'n unieke program. Teen die tyd dat dit begin is, was daar min geleenthede vir hoërskoolmeisies om aan aktiwiteite deel te neem. Hierdie program het hulle die geleentheid gebied om selfvertroue, dissipline en die vermoë om hulself goed te presenteer, te ontwikkel.

In die lente van 1956 besluit iemand dat 'n danslyn 'n wonderlike toevoeging tot die St. Louis Park -gees sal wees. Hulle het mev Fran Libby genader met die idee om die groep se choreograaf te wees. Haar entoesiasme het die idee vorentoe beweeg, en vir die volgende 12 jaar was sy die danslynleier. Al die meisies was van die Hoërskool St. Louis Park.

Die eerste jare het hulle gedans by Park High basketbalwedstryde en daarna by die District and Regional games in William Arena. Hulle het verder opgetree in die Aquatennial, St. Paul Winter Carnival en vele ander geleenthede.

In 1958 het hulle dubbeldiens as die Lakerettes gedoen en opgetree by die basketbalwedstryde in die Minneapolis Armory. Hulle het bekendheid verwerf en is uitgenooi om nasionaal op te tree op televisie, byeenkomste, by die Rose Bowl en vele ander geleenthede. In 1964 is hulle uitgenooi om as cheerleaders by die Viking -sokkerwedstryde op te tree. Dit het tot 1983 voortgeduur toe die Viking -bestuurder, Mike Lynn, besluit het dat hy meer volwasse cheerleaders wil hê, a la Dallas Cowgirls.

Van 1965 tot 1983 was die Parkettes cheerleaders vir die Vikings. Die 1965 Echowan bevat die volgende kommentaar oor die Parkettes: & quot; Teen sewentien kan u meisies nooit u knieë buig nie, & quot; mevrou Fran Libby, Parkette -adviseur, gespan. Met hierdie konstante inspanning en strawwe oefeninge het Parkettes byna perfeksie behaal.

Hulle is deur die Minnesota State Department of Corrections gevra om deel te wees van 'n groep wat by die St. Cloud Reformatory onthaal het. Besoek die selblokke en sien die dankbaarheid op die gevangenes se gesigte bedroef, maar het hulle diep bevredig.

Wat hulle by St. Cloud beleef het, was anders as die vreugde wat hulle tydens die St. Paul Winterkarnaval beleef het en die opgewondenheid het geproe wanneer hulle 'n televisievertoning by 'n Lakers NBA -wedstryd gelewer het. Nie net so opwindend as wat televisie gedans het tydens 'n Vikings -sokkerwedstryd in ysige temperature met net rompe en truie aan nie. Maar 'n goue megafoon -sjarme, gegewe die meisies wat by elke wedstryd dans, het meer as vergoed vir die koue tone en bevrore hande.

Die hoogtepunt van die jaar vir die meisies wat vir die Parkettes gedans het, was die reise wat hulle tydens die lente -vakansies onderneem het. Die bestemmings was uiteenlopend en het Griekeland, Italië, Venezuela, die Bahamas, Panama en Hawaii verskeie kere ingesluit. Hulle het gereeld vir hierdie buitelandse optredes opgetree.

Die reise is betaal deur die verdienste van die Parkettes en die Fanklub. Die Vikings en Lakers het die Parkette -organisasie betaal vir hul voorkoms en prestasie tydens die wedstryde. Die Parkette -ouers het programme by die Viking -speletjies verkoop vir konsessiekommissies. Die meisies het geld bygedra uit individuele werk, soos kinderoppas.

Om as lid van die Parkettes gekies te word, was 'n verbintenis wat harde werk verg.


Spraak-taalpatologie

'N Bachelor of Arts in pre-professionele spraak-taalpatologie berei studente voor vir nagraadse studie in spraak-taalpatologie of oudiologie. 'N Graad wat spesialiseer in die verbreding van onderwyservaring in die liberale kunste en wetenskappe, benewens basiese kursuswerk in normale en wanordelike spraak, taal en gehoor. (Konsentrasie in oudiologie beskikbaar)

Dit moet voltooi word voor toelating tot die Louisiana Tech -nagraadse program. Dit is standaard vir alle gegradueerde programme in SLP.

Alle studente moet ook die GRE neem, en programbestuurders neem die verbale, kwantitatiewe en skryf tellings in die formule vir aanvaarding in ag.


Inhoud

Vroeë jare Redigeer

Ruston Kollege, 'n voorloper van Louisiana Tech, is in die middel van die 1880's gestig deur W. C. Friley, 'n Southern Baptist pastor. Hierdie instelling het sewe jaar geduur en jaarlikse inskrywings van ongeveer 250 studente gehad. [9] Friley dien daarna van 1892 tot 1894 as die eerste president van die Hardin - Simmons Universiteit in Abilene, Texas, en van 1909 tot 1910, as die tweede president van Louisiana College in Pineville.

Op 14 Mei 1894 het die Lincoln Parish Police Jury 'n spesiale sitting gehou om planne om 'n plaaslike industriële skool te bewerkstellig. Die polisie -jurie ('n liggaam soortgelyk aan 'n landdroshof of provinsiale kommissie in ander state) het 'n beroep op die staatsverteenwoordiger, George M. Lomax, gedoen om die voorgestelde wetgewing tydens die komende sitting voor te stel. Verteenwoordiger Lomax, Jackson Parish -verteenwoordiger, J. T. M. Hancock, en joernalis, prokureur en toekomstige regter John B. Holstead het baklei vir die goedkeuring van die wetsontwerp. Op 6 Julie 1894 is die voorgestelde wetsontwerp goedgekeur as Wet No. 68 van die Algemene Vergadering van Louisiana. [8] Die wet het 'The Industrial Institute and College of Louisiana' gestig, 'n industriële instituut wat geskep is vir die opvoeding van blanke kinders in die kunste en wetenskappe. [8]

In 1894 is kolonel Arthur T. Prescott verkies as die eerste president van die kollege. Hy verhuis na Ruston en begin toesig hou oor die bou van 'n hoofverdieping met twee verdiepings. Die baksteengebou het agt groot klaskamers, 'n ouditorium, 'n chemiese laboratorium en twee kantore. 'N Raamgebou is ook naby gebou en is gebruik vir die onderrig van werktuigkundiges. Die hoofgebou was geleë op 'n erf van 81 hektaar wat deur Francis P. Stubbs aan die skool geskenk is. Op 23 September 1895 begin die skool sy eerste sessie met ses fakulteitslede en 202 studente.

In Mei 1897 word Harry Howard die eerste gegradueerde. Kolonel Prescott het hom 'n Bachelor of Industry -graad toegeken, maar daar was geen formele aanvang nie. Die eerste formele aanvang is in die daaropvolgende Mei in die Ruston -operahuis gehou, met tien gegradueerdes wat hul diplomas ontvang het.

Artikel 256 van die staatsgrondwet van 1898 het die skool se naam verander na Louisiana Industrial Institute. [10] Twee jaar later is die studiekursus herorganiseer in twee jaar voorbereidende werk en drie jaar kursusse op universiteitsvlak. Studente wat hoërskool gegradueer het, is sonder eksamen tot die sewende kwartaal (universiteitsvlak) toegelaat. Met verloop van jare het kursusse verander en toelatingsvereistes is verskerp. Van 1917 tot 1925 is verskeie kurrikulums volgens die junior kollege -standaarde georganiseer en aangebied tot die Bachelor of Industry -graad. In 1919 het die Kuratorium die kurrikula vergroot en 'n standaard baccalaureusgraad begin toeken. Die eerste hiervan is op 15 Junie 1921 toegeken, 'n Baccalaureus Scientiae in Ingenieurswese.

Die Grondwet het 18 Junie 1921 aangeneem, die naam van die skool in artikel XII, afdeling 9, verander van Louisiana Industrial Institute tot Louisiana Polytechnic Institute, [11] of kortweg "Louisiana Tech".

Uitbreiding Redigeer

Die hoofgebou, ook bekend as Old Main, het in 1936 tot op die grond afgebrand, maar die kolomme wat die ingang gemerk het, bly agter Prescott Memorial Library. Teen Junie 1936 het die bou van 'n nuwe administrasiegebou begin. Nadat dit in Januarie 1937 voltooi was, is dit die naam Leche Hall ter ere van destydse goewerneur Richard W. Leche van New Orleans. Die gebou is herdoop na die dood van die voormalige universiteitspresident, JE Keeny, en bly die opgeknapte Keeny Hall.

Louisiana Polytechnic Institute beleef 'n toename in infrastruktuur in 1939 en 1940. Sewe geboue is ontwerp deur argitek Edward F. Neild en voltooi teen 'n koste van $ 2,054,270. Dit was Aswell Hall (meisieslaapkamer), Robinson Hall (manshuis vir juniors en seniors), Tolliver Hall (eetsaal met 880 sitplekke), Bogard Hall (die Ingenieursgebou), die S.J. Wages Power Plant, Reese Agricultural Hall (op die South Campus Tech Farm), en die Howard Auditorium & amp Fine Arts -gebou. [12]

Gedurende die Tweede Wêreldoorlog was Louisiana Polytechnic Institute een van 131 kolleges en universiteite wat nasionaal deelgeneem het aan die V-12 Navy College Training Program wat studente 'n pad na 'n vlootkommissie gebied het. [13]

In 1959 ontvang die eerste instansie vier studente die eerste meestersgrade.

Universiteitsera Redigeer

In 1962 word Foster Jay Taylor die 12de president van die Louisiana Polytechnic Institute, nadat hy Ralph L. Ropp opgevolg het. Gedurende sy vyf-en-twintig jaar as president het dr Taylor toesig gehou oor die transformasie van die voormalige Louisiana Polytechnic Institute in Louisiana Tech University. Die universiteit se inskrywing het gegroei van ongeveer 3 000 studente in 1962 tot ongeveer 12 000 studente in 1987. Die eerste Afro-Amerikaanse studente aan Louisiana Tech, James Earl Potts ('n oordragstudent van die nabygeleë HBCU Grambling State University) en Bertha Bradford-Robinson, is toegelaat in die lente van 1965. [15]

Die meeste moderne geboue op die hoofkampus is óf tydens Taylor se ampstermyn as universiteitspresident óf gebou óf opgeknap. Die belangrikste atletiekgeriewe is tydens die Taylor Era gebou, waaronder Joe Aillet -stadion, die Thomas Assembly Center, J.C. Love Field en die Lady Techster Softball Complex. Benewens die atletiekgeriewe, is die Wyly Tower, 16 verdiepings, die Studenteboekwinkel, die Nethken Hall (elektriese ingenieurswese-gebou), die Universiteitspresidenthuis en die huidige College of Business Building op die hoofkampus gebou. Ten einde die toenemende studentekorps van Louisiana Tech te huisves, het dr Taylor die bou van koshuise Graham, Harper, Kidd, Caruthers en Neilson gelei.

Taylor se tyd as president van Louisiana Tech was ook die begin van Lady Techster -atletiek. In 1974 stig Taylor die Lady Techsters -basketbalprogram vir vroue met 'n krediet van $ 5,000. Hy het Sonja Hogg, 'n 28-jarige PE-instrukteur by Ruston High School, as die eerste hoofafrigter van die Lady Techsters aangestel. Onder Coach Hogg en haar opvolger Leon Barmore het die Lady Techsters gedurende die 1980's drie nasionale kampioenskappe gewen. [16] In 1980 het dr Taylor die Lady Techster Softball -span gestig, met Barry Canterbury as die eerste hoofafrigter van die span. Die span het sewe reguit spanne na die NCAA -sagtebaltoernooi en drie reise na die Women's College World Series gedurende die 1980's.

Die eerste doktorsgraad word in 1971 toegeken, 'n Ph.D. in chemiese ingenieurswese.

In 1992 word Louisiana Tech 'n 'selektiewe toelating' -universiteit. Hierdie universiteit het hul toelatingskriteria sedert 2000 vier keer verhoog deur die minimum algehele graadpuntgemiddelde, saamgestelde ACT -telling en klasranglys te verhoog.

Louisiana Tech het erkenning verwerf van die Louisiana Board of Regents vir sy gradeplegtigheid en retensiekoers. Volgens 'n verslag van die Louisiana Board of Regents wat in Desember 2011 gepubliseer is, het Louisiana Tech die tweede hoogste gradeplegtigheid onder die veertien openbare universiteite in die staat Louisiana. Die gradueringskoers van 53,3% vir 6 jaar is die hoogste in die University of Louisiana System. [17] Louisiana Tech het 'n retensiekoers van 78,64% onder inkomende eerstejaars wat na die eerste jaar by dieselfde skool bly, die hoogste koers in die University of Louisiana System. [18] Die gemiddelde tyd-tot-graad-verhouding vir die gegradueerdes van Tech is 4,7 jaar, die vinnigste in die UL-stelsel. [19]

Louisiana Tech het die eerste in die wêreld geword wat 'n Bachelor of Science -graad in nanosisteemingenieurswese verwerf het toe Josh Brown sy graad in Mei 2007 behaal het. [20] Louisiana Tech, wat sy missie as ingenieurspionier voortgesit het, het ook die land se eerste BS -graad in kuberingenieurswese bekendgestel. in 2012.

Vanaf Mei 2017 [update] het Louisiana Tech meer as 100,900 grade toegeken. [21]

Die kampus van die Louisiana Tech University is geleë in Ruston, Louisiana. Die belangrikste paaie wat die Tech -kampus grens of kruis, is Tech Drive, California Avenue, Alabama Avenue en Railroad Avenue. Interstate 20 en US Highways 80 en 167 is binne 1,6 km van die hoofkampus geleë. Boonop sny 'n stel spoorlyne wat deur Kansas City Southern Railway bestuur word, die kampus naby Railroad Avenue.

Die gedeelte van die hoofkampus wes van Tech Drive en noord van die spoorlyn bevat al die belangrikste atletiekgeriewe van die universiteit, behalwe J.C. Love Field. Die land oos van Tech Drive en noord van die spoorlyn sluit die Lambright Intramural Center, J.C. Love Field en die University Park Apartments in. Die meeste van die ouer koshuise is naby California Avenue en langs Tech Drive suid van die treinspoor geleë. Die ouer deel van die hoofkampus is suid van Railroad Avenue geleë. Die Enterprise Campus is geleë op 'n stuk grond van 200 hektaar oos van Homerstraat en grens aan die oudste deel van die hoofkampus.

Benewens die hoofkampus, het Louisiana Tech ook 1,4 km2 grond op die Suidkampus, 0,68 km2 landbougrond wes van die hoofkampus, 2,44 km2 groot bosgrond in Winn, Natchitoches en Union Parishes, 120 hektaar grond in Shreveport, 'n gholfbaan van 180 hektaar in Lincoln Parish, 57 hektaar grond vir 'n arboretum wes van die hoofkampus, en 'n vlugoperasiesentrum by die Ruston -streekslughawe. [22]

Hoofkampus Redigeer

Die hoofkampus aan die Louisiana Tech University het in 1894 ontstaan ​​as 'n stuk grond van 81 hektaar met slegs twee geboue, The Old Main Building en 'n raamgebou in die omgewing wat deur die Departement Meganika (die voorloper van die College of Ingenieurswese en wetenskap). Vandag is die hoofkampus gehuisves op 280 hektaar grond met 86 geboue, waaronder 22 woonstelgeboue vir die University Park Apartments in die noordelike deel van die kampus. [22] Baie van die geboue, veral die ouer geboue, op die hoofkampus is in die koloniale herlewingstyl gebou. [23] Bogard Hall, Howard Auditorium, Keeny Hall, University Hall (voorheen die oorspronklike Prescott -biblioteek), Reese Hall, Robinson Hall en Tolliver Hall is almal opgeneem in die National Register of Historical Places. [24]

Die oudste bestaande gebou op die Louisiana Tech -kampus is die Ropp -sentrum. Die huis in Italiaanse styl is in 1911 gebou en is vernoem na Ralph L. Ropp, president van Louisiana Tech van 1949 tot 1962. Die Ropp-sentrum was die tuiste van sewe Louisiana Tech-presidente totdat 'n nuwe president se huis gebou is 1972 aan die westekant van Tech se kampus. Die Ropp -sentrum is dertien jaar lank deur die College of Home Economics gebruik totdat die Office of Special Programs in 1985 in die gebou ingetrek het. In 2002 is 'n opknapping van $ 1 miljoen voltooi om die Ropp -sentrum te omskep in 'n fakulteit- en personeelklub wat gebruik word vir spesiale geleenthede en behuising vir gaste op die kampus. [25]

Die Quadrangle (die Quad) is die fokuspunt van die oudste deel van die hoofkampus. Die Quad word beskou as een van die rustigste en mooiste plekke in Louisiana Tech. [26] Groot eikebome en parkbanke rondom die Quad bied studente en besoekers 'n rustige plek om te studeer en te ontspan. In die middel van die Quad is die beeldhouwerk en fontein van The Lady of the Mist, 'n baken vir studente en alumni. Die geboue rondom die Quad is Keeny Hall, Howard Auditorium, die Studentesentrum, die Boekwinkel, die Wyly Tower of Learning, die huidige Prescott Memorial Library en die oorspronklike Prescott Library wat nou bekend staan ​​as University Hall.

'N Ander gewilde ligging op die hoofkampus is Centennial Plaza. In 1994 is Centennial Plaza gebou ter herdenking van die 100ste herdenking van die stigting van Louisiana Tech. Die plein is gefinansier deur 'n self-aangewese fooi vir studente en spesifiek ontwerp vir die gebruik en genot van die studentekorps. Centennial Plaza word regdeur die jaar gebruik vir spesiale geleenthede, soos Kersfees in die Plaza, filmgeleenthede en organisasiebeurse vir studente. Centennial Plaza is een van die belangrikste bymekaarkomplekke van die studente vanweë die nabyheid van die plein aan die restaurante op die kampus, koffiewinkels, eetsale, universiteitsposkantore en kantore vir Student Life, SGA en Union Board. In die middel van die plein is die Clock Tower met die klank- en digitale vermoëns om die Alma Mater, Fight Song en enige ander liedjies en oproepe na behoefte te speel. Die Alumni Brick Walkway loop deur Centennial Plaza en om die kloktoring. [27] 'n Groot seël van Louisiana Tech dui die middel van Centennial Plaza net wes van die Clock Tower aan. Centennial Plaza word omring deur Tolliver Hall, die Studentesentrum, Howard Auditorium en Harper Residence Hall.

Louisiana Tech het twee hoof eetsale aan Wisteria Drive aan die westekant van Centennial Plaza. Die eerste eetsaal is die Studentesentrum wat die kafeteria huisves, 'n kleiner eetsaal vir eet en kuier, die La Tech Cafe, verskeie klein restaurante, waaronder Chick-fil-A, en die Tonk. Die Studentesentrum is ook die tuiste van die CEnIT Innovation Lab, verskeie groot studiegebiede en 'n konferensiekamer. Een van die drie brons -bulhondbeelde is op die eerste verdieping van die Studentesentrum naby die ingang van die Tonk geleë. Studente troetel die bulhondbeeld vir geluk terwyl hulle by die standbeeld loop.

Die tweede studentesentrum op die Tech -kampus is Tolliver Hall. Tolliver Hall, vernoem na Tech se eerste voltydse dieetkundige Irene Tolliver, is aan die westekant van Centennial Plaza naby die Wisteria Student Center geleë. Hierdie gebou met twee verdiepings is in die 1920's gebou as een van drie eetsale by Louisiana Tech. Die eetarea op die tweede verdieping het oop gebly totdat dit in die 1980's gesluit is. In 2003 is byna $ 3 miljoen bestee aan die opknapping van Tolliver Hall tot 'n moderne sentrum vir kuberstudente. Die tweede verdieping huisves nou 'n kuberkafee met rekenaarstasies, 'n McAlister's Deli-restaurant, verskeie kleiner restaurante, 'n groot eetarea met grootskerm-televisies en kleiner tafels rondom die vloer om te eet en te studeer. Die kantore van die Louisiana Tech Student Government Association, Union Board, die International Student Office en multikulturele aangeleenthede word ook op die tweede verdieping gehuisves. Die eerste verdieping word gebruik as die poskantoor vir Tech se studente, fakulteite en administratiewe amptenare. [28]

In die afgelope dekade het Louisiana Tech nuwe geboue gebou en sommige van die ouer geboue van die hoofkampus opgeknap. Die universiteit het Davison Hall (die tuiste van die universiteit se Professional Aviation -program), die Micromanufacturing -gebou en die Biomedical Engineering -gebou aan die suidpunt van die hoofkampus langs Hergotlaan opgerig. Tech het die ou Hale Hall afgebreek en 'n splinternuwe Hale Hall gebou in die styl en ontwerp van die voorganger in 2004. [29] Aan die oostelike rand van die kampus het die universiteit die gebou wat nou bekend staan ​​as University Hall opgeknap, herontwerp boekwinkel binne, en het die nodige herstelwerk aan Keeny Hall en Howard Auditorium gedoen. Al die groot atletiekgeriewe op die noordelike deel van die hoofkampus het die afgelope vyf jaar groot opgraderings en opknappings gekry.

Die bou van 'n nuwe College of Business -gebou is vroeg in 2011 begin. Die 4200 vierkante voet (3900 m) -fasiliteit dien as die middelpunt van die ondernemings- en sakeprogramme van die College of Business.

Lady of the Mist Edit

The Lady of the Mist is one of the most recognizable landmarks on the Louisiana Tech Main Campus. The granite sculpture sits in the midst of a fountain in the middle of the quadrangle (The Quad), one of the focal points of the university and part of the older section of the Main Campus. [22] The Lady of the Mist symbolizes "Alma Mater" welcoming new students and bidding farewell to Tech graduates. The statue also symbolizes the hope that Louisiana Tech graduates will fulfill their ambitions and highest callings in life.

The statue and fountain was funded in 1938 by the Women's Panhellenic Association of Ruston, the governing body of the university's sorority groups. The Lady of the Mist was the idea of Art & Architecture faculty member Mary Moffett and Art Department Chair Elizabeth Bethea. [104] The Lady of the Mist was created by Duncan Ferguson and Jules Struppeck and specifically located in the middle of the Quad facing north toward the old north entrance columns of the Tech campus. This was done to welcome everyone to the campus as people looked through the north entrance columns to see the statue's open arms waiting to greet them.

The Lady fell into disrepair in the years after its construction. In 1985, the statue was restored through the efforts of the Student Government Association, Panhellenic, Residence Hall Association, and Association of Women Students. Today, the statue remains a focal point for students and alumni who return to the Tech campus. Incoming freshman commemorate their new beginning by tossing a gold medallion into the fountain. [105]

Alumni brick walkway Edit

The alumni walkway was constructed in 1995 as part of the centennial celebration at Louisiana Tech. The brick path stretches from the corner of Adams Boulevard and Dan Reneau Drive through the heart of Centennial Plaza to the footsteps of Tolliver Hall. The alumni brick walkway then follows Wisteria Street north toward Railroad Avenue. The plan is to extend the alumni brick walkway through the University Park student housing apartments that were built near J.C. Love Field. [106] As of May 2011 [update] , the walkway contained 72,000 engraved bricks representing all Louisiana Tech graduates from 1897 up to the year 2000. [22]

Teaching WWII history, Holocaust may be required in Louisiana schools

BATON ROUGE — A bill that would mandate the instruction of World War II and the Holocaust to high school students passed 65-32 in the House Monday. It would include training for teachers instructing students on such history.

“By teaching students about World War II, they become stronger in their ability as a society to resist efforts to marginalize and demonize vulnerable groups of people,” said the bill’s author, Rep. Valarie Hodges, R-Denham Springs.

The bill, House Bill 416, would call on schools across the state to partner with the National WWII Museum in New Orleans to teach the curriculum.

Rep. Hodges said that it is the legislators and the educator’s responsibility to share the stories of the Holocaust because survivors will soon no longer be around to share themselves.

There was opposition to the bill from the Louisiana Board of Secondary Education (BESE). A commission is reviewing state social studies standards that will make a recommendation to BESE for new standards in October.

Hodges explained that her bill is timely because waiting for the review commission to create new standards would be too late. Once new standards are created, they are in place for the next seven years.

Rep. Beryl Amedee, R-Houma, said she had heard from opponents who think that all curriculum standards decisions should be made by BESE, not the Legislature. Hodges responded that the Legislature has mandated curriculum 37 different times in the past.

Rep. Ted James, D-Baton Rouge, brought an amendment to the bill to mandate the teaching of significant Black historical figures. The amendment failed, but it created robust debate by House members on what should and should not be mandated in Louisiana public schools.

“We all have passions on what we think should be taught,” said Rep. Royce Duplessis, D-New Orleans. He said that last year he brought a resolution to recommend that schools teach the history of racism, and he agreed with James’ amendment since that “question is not being asked.”

The House debate followed controversy about a bill by former House Education Committee Chairman Rep. Raymond Garofalo’s, R-Chalmette, that would have prohibited any teaching that the United States or Louisiana is systematically racist or sexist.

The bill was shelved after protests by members of the Louisiana Legislative Black Caucus, and Garofalo was eventually stripped of the committee chairmanship by GOP leaders.

“I hope this is not the message that we start today of coming up with our own standards on what we want taught,” said Rep. Tammy Phelps, D-Shreveport. “If all of us next session come up with things we want to do besides allowing BESE to do, I want us to remember this day.”

Hodges is also the author of House Bill 352, which would require the teaching of the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the Federalist Papers, the Gettysburg Address and the concepts of national sovereignty, American exceptionalism, globalism and immigration policy.

The bill, House Bill 352, was supposed to be debated on the House floor on Monday as well, but Hodges returned it to the calendar.

Rep. Hodges closed on her bill thanking the House members for a dignified debate, and the bill will now be heard in the Senate.

Neuromuscular Features Affecting Speech
Strength
Speed
Bereik
Steadiness
Toon
Akkuraatheid

Confirmatory signs
Signs other than the deviant speech characteristics and
features of speech muscles during speech that can help
confirm a speech diagnosis

Can be found in speech or nonspeech muscles

Examples of confirmatory signs within the speech system
Atrophy
Fasciculations
Emotional lability
Reduced reflexes
Presence of pathologic reflexes
Strength of cough and coup de glotte

Examples of confirmatory signs in nonspeech motor system
Gait disturbances
Abnormal muscle stretch reflexes
Limb atrophy and fasciculations
Loss of automatic movements
Difficulty initiating limb movements
Abnormalities of strength speed, accuracy, tone, steadiness and ROM
at rest or during nonspeech tasks

Assessment Process
Geskiedenis
Assessment of nonspeech function
Perceptual analysis of speech
Intelligibility assessment
Acoustic and physiologic analyses

PROTOCOL FOR EXAMINATION OF MOTOR SPEECH DISORDERS

1. Geskiedenis
* facts about onset and course
* associated deficits
* patient's awareness of the symptoms/perception of the deficit
* degree of disability or handicap caused by the problem i.e.
consequences of the problem
* what kinds of things have been tried to manage the problems
* suggestions of questions pp.68-69
2. Assessment of nonspeech function

A. cranial nerve/oral mechanism exam e.g. Dworkin-Culatta Oral Mechanism Examination
or other commercial or non-commercial format

3. Perceptual analysis of speech
A. gather the following speech samples audio and/or video tape for analysis a
* vowel prolongation
* alternating motion rates (AMR) and sequential motion rates (SMR)
using speech syllables and or words such as "puppy" "buttercup"
* standard reading passage
* narrative about pictured scene
* conversation sample
* stress test (counting for 2-4 minutes)
* complex multisyllabic words and sentences
* repeat days of week, months, CVC syllables with identical initial
and final consonants, sing familiar tune

B. identify and rate deviant speech characteristics (pg 82 text)

4. Intelligibility assessment
rate intelligibility using one of following scales
* Assessment of Intelligibility of Dysarthric Speech
* Frenchay Dysarthria Assessment
* Word Intelligibility Test (Kent et. al, 1989)
* Tikofsky Test of Intelligibility
* Situational Intelligibility Survey (Berry and Sanders, 1983)

5. Acoustic and Physiologic Measures

* Perceptually based clinical assessment will probably always be
most important component of clinical diagnosis
* As expense of instrumentation decreases, many acoustic and physiologic measures
that have been used extensively in research have potential value for clinical diagnosis
(and management - but we will deal with this later)
* Lack of instrumental use clinically may also reflect a lack of knowledge on the part
of current clinicians - "phobias" about using instrumentation - or lack of clearly demonstrated
clinical value

Examples of instrumental measures relevant to motor speech evaluations
Magnitude and timing of F2 movements
F2 slope
Diadochokinetic rate - average rate, variation of rate, intensity variations during repetitions
VOT
Pitch and intensity magnitude and variations during speech and sustained vowels
Measures of nasal resonance (Nasometer)


Assessment and Evaluation of Speech-Language Disorders in Schools

This is a guide to ASHA documents and references to consider when conducting comprehensive speech-language assessments. Speech-language assessment is a complex process. Assessing, describing, and interpreting an individual's communication ability requires the integration of a variety of information gathered in the evaluation process. ASHA's Preferred Practice Patterns for the Professions of Speech-Language Pathology (2004) indicates that comprehensive speech-language pathology assessment includes these components:

  • Case history, including medical status, education, socioeconomic, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds and information from teachers and other related service providers
  • Patient/client/student and family interview
  • Review of auditory, visual, motor, and cognitive status
  • Standardized and/or non-standardized measures of specific aspects of speech, spoken and non-spoken language, cognitive-communication, and swallowing function, including observations and analysis of work samples
  • Identification of potential for effective intervention strategies and compensations
  • Selection of standardized measures for speech, language, cognitive-communication, and/or swallowing assessment with consideration for documented ecological validity and cultural sensitivity
  • Follow-up services to monitor communication and swallowing status and ensure appropriate intervention and support for individuals with identified speech, language, cognitive-communication, and/or swallowing disorders

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA, 2004) has specific provisions concerning the assessment of students (Sections 300.301-300.305) in schools. In addition, SLPs need to follow state and local requirements for the assessments of students.

It is important to note the distinctions between the terms evaluation en assessment according to IDEA Part C Guidelines. Evaluation means the "procedures used by qualified personnel to determine a child's initial and continuing eligibility. " IDEA (2004), Part B requires that an evaluation be comprehensive and assess all areas of suspected disability. It is important for the clinician to involve other assessment staff as part of the multidisciplinary evaluation team to address educational and/or behavioral concerns for students who are not meeting the grade-level expectations (IDEA, 2004, Section 34 CFR 300.304).

Assessment means "the ongoing procedures used by qualified personnel to identify the child's unique strengths and needs and the early intervention services appropriate to meet those needs throughout the period of the child's eligibility. and includes the assessment of the child. and the assessment of the child's family. " (IDEA, Part C, Section 303.321)
