Module 2

Multicultural education is viewed by some teacher’s as irrelevant. On page 31, is states “Content integration deals with the extent to which teachers use examples, data, and information from a variety of cultures and groups to illustrate the key concepts, principles, generalizations, and theories in their subject area or discipline.” I feel that the knowledge Construction Process is an important concept. This is a good way for students to understand how knowledge is and how it’s created.
Prejudice Reduction is another key concept that sticks in my mind. It goes to show us how teachers can teach their students to develop a positive attitude about race. Teaching materials are important when it comes to teaching. There are so many things that are needed and that include teaching race, attitudes and behaviors.
Teachers need to make sure that their techniques and teaching methods are appropriate for their students and cultures. To do this the teachers have to be knowledge about cultures. On page 35 it sums up a lot to me: Research indicates that teachers can increase the classroom participation and academic achievement of students from different cultural and language groups by modifying their instruction so that it draws upon their cultural strengths.
The eight characteristics of the Multicultural School is something that I feel will benefit my classroom. I think that each one of these characteristics is something that I can look back on and use. This is something that I tend to look back on while teaching. I feel that it can help guide me and maybe it would be something to show to other teachers who did not attend Grand Canyon University and have to take this…...

...Arantxa Velezmoro JOURNAL 2 In the short poem, “The love song of J. Alfred Prufrock”, T.S Elliot illustrates himself to be a modern man who is simply trying to grasp the attention from a lady. Prufrock seems to be an overeducated, powerful, fearful, observant, and emotionally mannered man. Some of the major images in the short poem are the sinister streets, the eating and drinking, the ocean, the body parts, and the rooms. T.S Elliot presents and adds to the development of the narrator’s character with imagery and metaphors. For instance, Prufrock is very concerned about his reputation, and he doesn’t want to stick out in a crowd. He’d rather people not notice him at all. In lines 2-3Although it doesn’t directly deal with body parts, the simile comparing the evening to a patient who has been put under anesthesia “etherised” on a surgery table prepares us for all the metaphorical "surgery" and "dissecting" that Prufrock does when he sees people only as body parts. Also, Prufrock says that the spoons he uses to measure his coffee are like a "measure" of his life, as well. Here the spoon is a synecdoche that actually refers to the whole process of sitting around in the afternoon and sipping on a caffeinated drink. Basically, he lives from one cup of coffee or tea to the next. Another example of imagery is when Prufrock presents the "claws"; the claws are synecdoche. They stand for a crab, which is the animal you’d most likely think of as scurrying on the ocean floor. Prufrock...

...Running head: MODULE 2 – WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT 2 Module 2 – Written Assignment 2 Thomas Edison State College   Module 2 – Written Assignment 2 This paper describes why search engines and databases produce different types of queried results. Two (2) separate search tools were used and this paper attempts to explain why there are differences in search results obtained from each search tool and evaluate the quality of their search results.   Module 2 – Written Assignment 2 Searching for information via the Internet will always produce invariable results. This notion can be exaggerated depending upon the tools one uses to query for information. That is not to say that the Internet cannot be used as a valuable research tool. On the contrary, studies have been conducted to support the use of Internet-based research in many fields, including the medical field (Ahern, 2005). While the Internet search engine can be a powerful tool for research, it should be noted that not all search engine tools are created equal. Different Internet search engines will in fact return different results. Therefore, great care must be taken to ensure that the appropriate search engine is chosen for the job. Some of the different types of search engines include: Crawlers, Directories, Meta, Hybrid and Specialty. Search query options enable users to refine their searches in an attempt to find more relevant information. These particular options vary according to the search......

...longer able to balance individual needs and organizational goals which are very important roles in being a successful leader. Once the team of leaders and staff below the CNO no longer believed in what she stood for she was forced to resign from her position. This example proved to me that even if you have been a leader for years, days or even a decade losing credibility with your team will destroy you as a successful leader. People will no longer remember the good, they will remember and point out the negative qualities of your leadership skills. Leadership in health care today is changing at a rapid pace along side with all the healthcare changes. A successful leader must includes six principles: (1) focusing on mission and vision; (2) modeling values; (3) shaping the organization’s culture; (4) taking risks; (5) empowering others; and (6) understanding oneself.

...Journal 2 When it comes to me and negotiation I fall under the category of avoidance. I will say that if there is a way to avoid a major conflict or future conflict I usually take the steps to do that. There are also many times when I personally find things not worthy of a major discussion. I would rather take care of things that are going to have a major impact rather than little complications that pop up here and there. Time management is something that I focus on, so there are times where I do avoid issues that could be solved and they end up turning into a bigger situation then they needed to be. When I thought about this I realized that being an avoider could actually be a big disadvantage. When I continually avoid all the smaller issues that are occurring they have the potential to turn into one huge issue. That large issue will probably end up taking a lot more time to resolve, and could result in the relationships that I have being hurt. If you are not willing to sit down and have discussions with your counterparts or even people on your side, you risk the chance of them not wanting to work with you at all. Once that happens it will be a lot harder to get a deal done when the time comes for a negotiation of some sort. Another disadvantage of being an avoider is the fact that if you are constantly avoiding situations that could be resolved with a little bit of negotiation nothing will ever get done or get changed. When you look at some of the traits of......

...1. Discuss where a computer stores its basic hardware settings, why it does so, and what some of those settings are. A computer stores its basic hardware settings in the ROM (read-only memory) it does this because it is non-volatile. Which means when the computer powers off the information on the Rom will stay. Unlike RAM (random access memory) which is volatile and gets emptied when the computer gets turned off. 2. Compare storage devices using four criteria: versatility, durability, speed, and capacity. Storage device do about the same thing but there are a lot of factors to look at for when u are looking for the best versatile storage u wouldn’t want to go with a hard disk because it can access data only form its fixed disk platters. Were as more versatile device like a dvd drive can access any DVDs, DVD movies, and CDS. Then u want to look at durability. Most storage device or even anything technological can be damaged if misused or mishandled so u want to find something that can hold up better. Like CDs and DVDs would be more durable than hard disks. Being able to access data is always important. Most storage devices people look are always looking for speed. Most devices take that into aspect like Hard disk, CD, DVD, Blu- ray, and solid state drives are all really fast compared to older technology’s like tape drives. Another huge factor in people buying a storage device is capacity. When someone looking for storage the more the better. The hard disk usual holds......

Concepts and Theories Module 2

...Billy Mishak N491 Concepts and Theories in Nursing Module 2 9/30/2014 Nightingale’s Visit Florence Nightingale’s core belief was in hygiene and to her the central element of healthcare (Parker & Smith, 2010, p45). Florence being a staunch proponent of the healing properties environmental cleanliness provided and her belief in nursing as her calling from God, “ The first thought that I can remember, and the last, was nursing work..” (Parker & Smith, 2010, 36), so few things inhibited her from achieving order and cleanliness. Nightingale’s provisions to those she cared for was cleanliness, order, encouragement to eat, feeding, clean bed linen, clean bodies, and clean wards (Parker & Smith, 2010, p40). Nightingale’s absolute adherence to these beliefs at times bordered on obstinacy and her efforts where credited with better patient outcomes. Community Health is a difficult field in any situation most notably because being in another persons home takes that measure of environmental control away that is afforded by the hospital setting. The community nurse in this case is confronted with a home environment that is not fit for human living, her quick visual assessment skills pointed out a two year old on the floor playing with a cat, a full liter box in the corner next to the changing table. The changing table had two half-empty formula bottles, an empty box of wipes, and three soiled diapers. The two year old goes from playing with the cat on the floor to......

...Journal Two: Identifying Conflict in Two Texts Read About Journals in ENG125: Introduction to Literature for more information about the purpose and expectations for journals. This week, you continue writing your journal entries. This journal entry is designed to help you document ideas about conflicts in literature, which will contribute to the information required for the Week Three Draft and the Week Five Literary Analysis. Recognizing conflict is essential to understanding the various commentaries literature can provide.  In Journal One, you identified conflict as it might appear in our everyday world and from other sources. Now, consider the following definition of conflict and how it relates to literature from the textbook or the story/poetry links provided under the requirements for the Literary Analysis:  Conflict is opposing actions, ideas, and decisions that hold a plot together...the struggle that shapes the plot in a story.  Chapters 1-7 of our text contain a number of stories and poems, each of which rely on at least one conflict. Choose two of this week’s assigned literary works and write about the conflicts presented in each of them. In 250 to 500 words Individual versus Society --- “Still she had come down the road toward the big white church alone. Just herself, an old forgetful woman, nearly blind with age” (para 3.1,2) --- appears to be the main conflict in Alice Walker’s narrative ironically, yet metaphorically named "The Welcome Table”.......

Druyun still worked for the air force when she was offered a job with Boeing, Druyun assisted Boeing with obtaining contracts with the air force. Now if we take a step back and look at the big picture late 2001 Druyun, an acquisitions for the U.S Air Force starts negations with Boeing to lease Boeing jets as refueling tankers, she later than awarded them a 4 billion dollar contract, and gave them proprietary pricing data. After ethical violations of CEO (Stonecipher) of McDonnell Douglas Boeing incorporates ethical monitoring. The identified stakeholders are Boeing, Druyun and Stonecipher. The Procurement Integrity Act prohibits the release of source selection and contractor bid or proposal information. Also, a former employee who served in certain positions on a procurement action or contract in excess of $10 million is barred for one year from receiving compensation as an employee or consultant from that contractor ("Procurement Integrity"). The ethical implications of the procurement act are that it can be a conflict of interest to negotiate with a supplier. The relevance in this case is that Druyun was still a part of the military when negotiations began for a new position at Boeing and per Druyun she awarded Beoing “a parting gift” before leaving the military that made Boeing......
