Michael OroscoThe BEAMMS gets published!

Dr. Orosco, an assistant professor in the Special Education department, has published “Measuring Elementary Student’s Mathematics Motivation: A Validity Study.” The purpose of this study was to develop and analyze the psychometric properties of a newly developed measure of math motivation for elementary students.

Novel Focuses on Witches in the Basque Country

(January 22, 2015)

Begoña Echeverria grew up in the Basque immigrant community of Chino, Calif. She earned her Ph.D. by studying efforts to revitalize the Basque language in Donostia (San Sebastian) in the Autonomous Basque Community of Spain. She became a professor at the University of California, Riverside’s Graduate School of Education with research focused on Basque identity, language and culture. She is even part of a musical group that sings and writes Basque songs. So, it was only natural that when she decided to write a novel it would touch on all those elements. That novel, The Hammer of Witches, was recently published by the Center for Basque Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno.
