Constructivist Methods in the Social Studies Classroom

Words: 967 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Research Paper Paper #: 12636453

Constructivist Methods in Social Studies

Kaiser, C. (2010, February). Redrawing the boundaries: A constructivist approach to combating student apathy in the secondary history classroom. The History Teacher, 43(2), 223-232.

Kaiser argues that there is really nothing terribly tidy or accurate about the divisions that teachers use to teach and study history. The author suggests that teachers need to know both why and how the divisions in the study of history occur -- this lends a level of self-consciousness to history as a discipline. Kaiser proposes using alternative perspectives for the study of history that capitalize on the individual interests of adolescent students. Kaiser suggests that each student should select a unique perspective -- a stand-alone thematic approach -- for the study of history for the duration of the coursework. Being able to unpack the traditional divisions in history will help me explain to my history students what my assignment is…… [Read More]

Approaching the Nursing Shortage Through Comparison of the Iowa Model and the Star Model

Words: 745 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 93781531

Evidence-Based Practice and Nursing

A growing consensus has emerged within the field of modern nursing which holds that the most effective patient care is delivered through the use of evidence-based practice (EBP) by nurses and other health care providers. Although there are several distinct models of evidence-based practice, each typified by its varying approach to research utilization, EBP has been authoritatively defined as "the integration of the best research with clinical expertise and patient values" (Sackett et al., 2000). Two of the most prevalent models of EBP throughout the nursing profession are the Iowa Model and the Star Model, and each relies on a unique philosophy regarding the factors used to guide the implementation of academic research into clinical application. Conceived by Marita G. Titler, PhD, RN, FAAN and her colleagues, the model officially known as the Iowa Model of Research-Based Practice to Promote Quality Care was "developed and originally…… [Read More]

CSR in Saudi Firms

Corporate Social Responsibility

References to corporate social responsibility (CSR) reportedly occurred numerous times before the 1950s, however, in regard to CSR definitions, that particular decade birthed the "modern era." Carroll (1999) compliments the researcher's current study as it expands on the historical progression of CSR definitions. According to Carrol, Bowen initially defined the social responsibilities of businessmen; explaining that the concept relates to the obligations businessmen have to pursue particular policies, to make deliberate desirable decisions, "or to follow those lines of action which are desirable in terms of the objectives and values of our society" (Bowen as cited in Carroll, p. 270). During the 1960s, the "Iron Law of Responsibility," held that "social responsibilities of businessmen need to be commensurate with their social power" (Davis, as cited in Carroll, p. 271). Davis and others during this decade, however, did not include specific details regarding the…… [Read More]

Beijing 2008. A viewer would be hard pressed not to like the Beijing Closing Ceremony, especially if they were a fan of fireworks. When the Olympic athletes wave goodbyes to the audience, it is always jubilant and often free-form -- a favorite was two middle-easterners in their formal white robes standing stark-still and modestly waving their country flags, whilst all around them, athletes from other countries cavorted with abandon. The "tower of Babel" idea was interesting and was, at least, easier to view than other performances on the flat arena floor. Again, though the detail of what was happening on the tower was easily lost.

Open Systems Theory

The model of Organizational Development, commonly known as OD model, represents organization in a form that its overall understanding becomes easier and faster. It is a reflection of observable affairs in the organization. Burke has identified numerous ways showing the utility of organizational models (in Howard and Associates, 1994):

They lead to easy collection of brief and first hand language.

They give fairly clearer idea about the organizational behavior.

They assist in interpretation of organizational data.

They provide a base for the categorization of organization related data.

A properly selected OD model is crucial for the true diagnosis of the issue prevailing in an organization and also streamlines the analysis phase.

Kotter's and Lewin's models and discusses their roles as diagnostic tools and as implementation agents. It is the nature of organizations to face constant change, whether the source comes from competitive pressures, new opportunities, technological advances or new initiatives and so forth. Both models offer a methodology for effectively managing change.

Kotter's 8-Step Change Model

Change management models help organizations to effect change in a systematic manner while avoiding some of the pitfalls associated with organizational change development. According to John Kotter, organizations frequently make the same mistakes when they try to bring about change; they allow too much complacency or they fail to communicate and so forth (Reynolds, 2009).

Kotter's 8-step change model has been shown to be a powerful and successful method for implementing change. The purpose of Kotter's model is to efficiently and effectively achieve change management. People respond better to change when they are actively involved…… [Read More]

Pastoral Counseling

Issues in the helping profession

Pastoral counseling: An overview

Multicultural sensitivities

Pastoral counselors today will inevitably come into contact with persons of widely varying cultural traditions. For example, when counseling someone regarding how to care for an elderly parent with whom the family is now residing, the counselor must be aware that different cultures view the elderly in different ways. For some people, taking care of older parents is considered to be a necessary obligation -- the extended family rather than the nuclear family is prioritized. The counselor will not necessarily alter his advice, but it should be nuanced and informed with cultural awareness.

In other matters, such as dealing with diverse religious groups and matters of sexual orientation, personal desire may seem to come into conflict with scripture. The counselor may state the position of his faith, but still approaches the client with a loving and open…… [Read More]

The topic statement seeks to explore these phenomena by focusing on the psychological experience and its relationship to violence and economics. The idea that the action of immigrating is profoundly disruptive on ideas of self-worth, identity and economic status are explored.

Cell Division

All living things are complex organisms that are made up of cells. Some are made up of a single cell while others comprise of numerous cells working together. Cells are the basic functional and structural units of living organisms and are known to be the building blocks of life. In humans it is from a group of cells that tissues are made and from tissues that organs are made which enable beings to live.

Cells obtain food and oxygen through their membranes and each membrane has a specific area which can serve contents of only a given volume. Any increase in volume of the cell requires that the area of the membrane increases. Basically, when cells grow the membrane becomes insufficient in aiding the movement of substances in and out and thus to maintain a favourable surface area to volume ratio, cell division must take place.

Rumor of War in 1977 Philip Caputo

Words: 1069 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 7372658

Rumor of War

In 1977, Philip Caputo wrote A Rumor of War, to document his experience as a Marine during the Vietnam War. Caputo does not "pretend" to write about history, politics, "power, strategy, influence, national interests, or foreign policy," (xiii). A Rumor of War is about what it is like to be a soldier: it is a "simple story about war, about the things men do in war and the things war does to them," (Caputo xiii). The events chronicles in A Rumor of War cover Caputo's service in 1965 and 1966. However, the war dragged on a lot longer than that. Caputo therefore writes an epilogue years later with more commentary.

Caputo traces the changes in his own perspective, as well as in the perspectives of his fellow soldiers. When he first joins the marines, the troops believe that they are fighting a small and relatively insignificant war.…… [Read More]

Kant, Rousseau, Locke

In his book Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics, how does Kant apply these concepts? Discuss Kant's EACH use of: - sensibility - transcendental idealism - objective reality - understanding - Copernican revolution

The philosophical concept of transcendental idealism holds that the subjective qualities of human perception affect how we perceive certain objects, and experience is not simply grounded in the qualities of 'things in and of themselves.' We perceive objects through our sensibilities and our sensibilities are not the same as the objective reality of a substance. "Kant's idea is that objects are given through the sensibility (in intuitions), they are thought through the understanding (through concepts), and our experience of them comes from judgments (which involve the synthesis of intuitions and concepts in the unity of apperception). (For Kant, intuitions are representations of empirical objects, as -- indeterminate -- appearances)" ("Sensibility," Kant Dictionary, 2012).

Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are neoplasms characterized by tissue immunoreactivity for neuroendocrine differentiation markers, appearance as a small mass that can be off white to yellow often in submucosa and prevalence throughout the body but typically found in the intestine or lungs (Oberg2011). The tumors can be malignant and are typically detected through hormone markers in a first diagnosis (Arnold 2003). Because of the diffuse nature of this type of tumor, detecting and imaging NETs requires scanning and typically requires a contrast agent to detect the location of tumors in tissue (Tan 2011). Many NET cells possess an overexpression of somatostatin receptors on their surface (Kwekkeboom 2005, VenEssen 2007). Somatostatin receptors are cell surface proteins that bind to somatostatin, a growth hormone inhibiting hormone that regulates the endocrine system and affects neurotransmission and cell proliferation (Florio 2002).

Words: 872 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 87551440

Sports Sociology

Sports played either by professionals, amateurs, or just for leisure, are a large part of all industrialized societies. Nonetheless, early on sociologists have looked at sports with distain. For instance Emile Durkheim thought of sports as simply ritualized civic ceremonies, whereas early feminists viewed them as masculine cultural displays (Giulianotti, 2005). However, Bourdieu, Elias, and Dunning were among the first sociologists to take a serious approach in viewing sports as sociological phenomena, although they understood that there were issues involved as Bourdieu (1990, p. 156) notes: "The sociology of sport: It is disdained by sociologists and despised by sportspeople."

Karen and Washington (2001) reviewed the sports sociology literature between the late 1980s to the early 1990s and found that the field was oriented more towards micro-level analyses about gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and the media. Macro-oriented level research during that period was underrepresented and mostly oriented toward gender and…… [Read More]

Expanding Diversity Consciousness

Diversity can be viewed in many ways and it can be experienced in both outer and inner phenomena. We find that diversity of people is present in our dreams, feelings, states, religions, thoughts, ethnicities, ages, political views, sexual orientations and physical abilities.

World War II -- Eastern Front

While the personality of any dictator may significantly influence the military decisions of his/her dictatorship, perhaps the clearest instance of this phenomenon occurred in World War II's Barbarossa, an invasion of Russia in the Eastern Front. Obsessed with his messianic delusions, Hitler's personal flaws resulted in the ultimate failure of the greatest invasion in recorded history.

Art -- bauhaus

The Bauhaus movement would have a significant impact on art and design throughout the twentieth century. Its roots in both Weimar and Dessau reveal the diverse currents within the movement. In Weimar, the Bauhaus movement took root. Walter Gropius and colleagues sought for a means to unify art and design, decor and architecture, in ways that had been previously unprecedented.
