Sharon E. Rosenkoetter Papers, 1996-2011

Scope and Content Note

The Sharon E. Rosenkoetter Papers document Rosenkoetter's research in early childhood development, especially transition planning between settings for children with special needs and leadership development to promote quality services across early childhood agencies and disciplines. The materials consist primarily of completed surveys, course materials, summarized survey data, reference materials, reports, and documentation compiled for the Oregon State University Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB materials include correspondence, blank survey forms, status reports, project outlines, and blank consent forms. Four projects are represented in the collection: Early Childhood Leadership Directions; Rural Links: An Approach to Collaborative Teacher Recruitment, Preparation, and Placement; National Early Childhood Transition Center (NECTC); and Story Quest.

The course materials are for HDFS 410, a practicum class for student involved in the Rural Links project. Three photographs depict Rosenkoetter with the students participating in the Rural Links project. Spanish versions of the NECTC project surveys are part of the collection.

An addition to the Sharon E. Rosenkoetter Papers (Accession 2014:090) documents two research projects administered by Human Development and Family Sciences Professor Rosenkoetter and is made up of agreements, an article manuscript, budgetary materials, conference presentations, contracts, correspondence, course sylabi, grant proposals, meeting minutes, newspaper clippings, notes, reports, a student paper, survey data, and transcripts of interviews. Most of these materials reflect a study of early childhood education on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation conducted as a partnership between the Warm Springs Tribe, OSU, and Central Oregon Community College. Data collected from this project is in form of interview transcripts and surveys with Warm Springs residents involved in the local education and human services community as well as students. The Head Start Program is referenced often thoroughout these files. These records also contain data from the National Survey of Families and Households project.
