Reach your goal by following the tasks ahead. Step 1 Identify the subject areaStep 2 Describe the hand-outs in terms of type.Step 3 Identify the learning activities used. |

My Tools
As you prepare your report about the teacher’s hand-outs, fill-out the activity form below. A HAND-OUT | Subject Matter: Napkin Folding | Year Level: 3rd year High school | Content: It is all about napkin folding and examples on how to fold a napkin.Learning Activities: Execute properly some given examples from the hand outs. Students can create their own style of folding a napkin. | Assessment Plan:þ Purpose and outcomes of the napkin folding processþ Relevant units of topicþ Appeals processþ Special needs/Additional informationþ Creativeness and originality |


Napkin Folding
• is a type of decorative folding done with a napkin. It can be done as art or as a hobby.
• is most commonly encountered as a table decoration in fancy restaurants.
• Typically, and for best results, a clean, pressed, and starched square cloth (linen or cotton) napkin is used.
• There are variations in napkin folding in which a rectangular napkin, a napkin ring, a glass, or multiple napkins may be used.

Examples of Napkin Folding
• The Pyramid Napkin Fold - This classy napkin folding technique is simple, fast, and can be made easily with most napkins. If the napkin being used is thin and flops easily then iron it with light starch prior to folding and it will turn out perfectly!

1. Lay the napkin face down in front of you
2. Fold the napkin in half diagonally
3. Rotate the napkin so the open end faces away from you.
4. Fold the right end up to meet the far corner, ensuring the edge of this new fold lays on the centerline as shown.
5. Repeat the last step with the left side, folding the left tip up to the far corner, creating a diamond shape with a seam running down the center.
6. Turn the napkin over, keeping the open end facing away from you.
7. Fold the napkin in half by bringing the farthest point of the diamond up and back to the nearest point.
8. Turn the napkin over again, this time keeping the open end facing towards you.
9. Fold the napkin along the center seam and you have a neat, sturdy pyramid. If your napkin won't stand neatly then you may need a little starch.

• The Arrow Napkin Folding - This method of folding napkins is very simple and can be done with almost any napkin without a need for starch. It adds a flowing, elegant look to your table.

1. Lay the napkin face down in front of you.
2. Fold the napkin in half and orient the open end towards you.
3. Fold the far-right corner over to the center of the side that is closest to you. The edge of this fold should run down the center of the napkin.
4. Repeat the last step with the other side, folding the far-left corner in to rest along side the previous fold.
5. Fold the right-flap out diagonally so that it's outer edge runs even with the far edge of the napkin.
6. Repeat the previous step on the other side, folding the left-flap out diagonally to meet the far edge of the napkin.
7. Slide the left and the right sides together, allowing the napkin to bend at the farthest point. This will cause the flat, center part to bow.

• Bird of Paradise Napkin Folding - This is a classic and classy napkin folding technique that requires a stiff napkin. If you don't have any dinner napkins made of stiff linen then a light starching should fix you right up.

1. Lay the napkin face down in front of you
2. Fold the napkin in half.
3. Fold the napkin in quarters.
4. Fold the napkin in half diagonally, creating a triangle.
5. Orient the triangle so the open tip is facing away from you.
6. Fold the right corner diagonally towards you - laying it down along the centerline of the triangle, making a new tip pointing towards you. An iron can make this important fold a whole lot easier.
7. Do the same with the left corner, fold it diagonally toward you and press it down next to the previous fold. Now you have a diamond, you're rich!
8. Fold the two "wings" that you just made in folds 6 and 7 under so that you have your original triangle shape back. Once again an iron can make a world of difference.
9. Fold the triangle in half by bringing the center seam towards you and allowing the ends to fall.
10. This bird's almost ready to fly, but first you must give it some feathers. While holding the base firmly to keep your folds together, pull up the four 'flaps' created by the napkin's corners.

• Diamond Fold - Got some really limp napkins and want something nice to make without eating up too much time? Then this one's for you, if you're using thick/stiff napkins then an iron will help.

1. Lay the napkin face-down in front of you.
2. Fold the napkin in half and orient the open end toward you.
3. Fold the napkin into quarters.
4. Fold the top-most layer of the napkin in half diagonally - up and to the left.
5. Fold the next layer of napkin diagonally up and to the left, stopping slightly before the last fold to create an even, staggered effect.
6. Repeat by folding up the next layer of napkin to a point just before the last one.
7. And one last time with one last layer. Keep them as uniform as you can.
8. Now fold both sides of the napkin under and in to create an even, staggered diamond effect on the napkin. Press it down as flat as possible and you're ready for guests within 60 seconds!

• The Cone Napkin Folding - This nice napkin design originated from the napkin-worshiping Indians native to Guam called the dirty-wipey-nappies...or not. An iron will be helpful.

1. Lay the napkin face down in front of you.
2. Fold the napkin in half diagonally.
3. Orient the napkin so the open corner faces away from you.
4. Fold the left-most corner diagonally so the point rests on top of the far corner.
5. Repeat the last step with the right side, bringing this fold evenly along to the last one.
6. Turn the napkin over, keeping the open ends pointing away from you.
7. Evenly fold the bottom third of the napkin up and press it down well. An iron may be needed here.
8. Fold both the left and right sides back and underneath the napkin evenly to create the finished product seen here. That looks so nice I bet you just can't wait to smear food on it!

In the presentation, describe how the tool was used in a particular lesson/time.
Ø The tool was used in a given time of 2 hours. The teacher gives hand-out to her students individually and discussed first the things found in hand outs. Then later on, she gives time to her students to study the given examples and let them perform.

My Analysis
Which feature of the hand-out is not effective?
Ø I think the feature of the hand-out which is not effective is the hand-out itself because sometimes hand-outs are ignored after unlike books which are given much attention and need to be keep. Hand outs for other students are usually a paper that serves as referral for just that day and not for a long last. But me, all my hand outs will be keep because I know someday it will be utilize. Sometimes, my mom use to throw all in the garbage but I always warn her how important those papers.

What is measured by assessment plan? Is it process or product? Explain.
Ø Assessment plan this time measured not only the process but also the product. Process measured according to what the teacher discussed based on the hand outs given and also on how the students follow or understand what all is about. Product, in the sense that the teacher allow students to perform individually based on the given examples on how to fold a napkin. The product itself will be very important to determine whether the students catch up the lesson.

My Reflection
Recall any difficulties encountered in making hand-outs? How did you overcome them?
Ø To make a hand-out is not totally difficult. The only thing that it took time and needed brain storming when I made my handout is the conceptualization of the flow of my handout and the diagrams as well as the concept map that I should included. So first I did was to make an outline of the content of my handout. Then I read several references to form my concept map.

My Analysis
Based on the slide presentation you have made, what are the features of a good slide presentation?
1. A good slide presentation must be concise, direct to the point and insightful at the same time.

Divino |

My Reflections Write your reflection on your experience.
Ø As I go on with my episode 7 in this field study, I find it a little bit hard in deciding what topic should I search and I come up to one topic. Through internet, we can easily search and look on the things and information we want to know. That was also made by technologies.

How did you find the task of surfing the net relevant in generating more information for your support materials to the topic?
Ø At first, I find it confusing but later on as I go on surfing there are lot of things and information I gain because the things I want to know was there. I just need to surf and surf ‘til I find information that can support to my topic.
Imagine how schools located in communities without internet facilities cope with this need.
Ø I feel so disgusting for those schools without internet facilities because it is very useful to the students in the process of their learning. Aside from that, students should involve in fast and new trends in the community so that they will not left behind when it comes to technologies. They will explore and have an easy way of learning. To cope with this need, maybe a teacher will show or introduced some technologies advancement to his/her students. Teach them how to use those technologies and how technologies will help them. Maybe also the teacher or the school heads request materials for their students.

Powell Introduction Netflix Inc. is considered to be in the video entertainment industry, which distributes to consumers through movie theaters, airlines, hotels, and in-home (Netflix, Inc; 2009). Netflix and its competitors serve in-home consumers specifically through a number of alternative channels, making up the different strategic groups or segments of their portion of the entire industry which includes brick and mortar (Blockbuster) and DVD vending machine rentals (Redbox), mail delivery (Netflix and Blockbuster), and online rental (Netflix, Amazon, and iTunes), pay-per-view video (available from specialty suppliers such as HBO and Showtime through your cable provider), and on-demand services (VOD; those offered through digital cable providers), as well as brick and mortar (Wal-Mart and Best Buy) and online purchasing (Amazon and iTunes). Historically speaking, this industry began as stand-alone brick and mortar rental stores such as Blockbuster and the later entrant Hollywood Video/Movie Gallery (which for the most part were all corporately-owned, with small portions of franchised locations) and local rental businesses. They started in VHS and progressed to DVDs along with technology and household adoption. They would typically carry about 2,500 titles and performed better when copies were rented and out of the store—the longer period the better. (Spinola) This......

Further Reading Unit 1 : Many Planets, One Earth -1- 1. Introduction Earth's long history tells a story of constant environmental change and of close connections between physical and biological environments. It also demonstrates the robustness of life. Simple organisms first appeared on Earth some 3.8 billion years ago, and complex life forms emerged approximately 2 billion years ago. Life on Earth has endured through many intense stresses, including ice ages, warm episodes, high and low oxygen levels, mass extinctions, huge volcanic eruptions, and meteorite impacts. Untold numbers of species have come and gone, but life has survived even the most extreme fluxes. To understand why Earth has been so conducive to life, we need to identify key conditions that make it habitable and ask why they exist here but not on neighboring planets. This unit describes how Earth's carbon cycle regulates its climate and keeps surface temperatures within a habitable range. It also examines another central factor: the rise of free oxygen in the atmosphere starting more than 2...

Emotional Ads

...THE IMPACT OF EMOTIONAL ADVERTISING APPEALS ON CONSUMER IMPLICIT AND EXPLICIT MEMORY: AN ACCESSIBILITY/DIAGNOSTICITY PERSPECTIVE Patti Williams The Wharton School University of Pennsylvania May 2000 Rough working draft. Please do not quote without author’s permission. Patti Williams is Assistant Professor of Marketing at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, 1400 Steinberg/Dietrich Hall, Philadelphia, PA 19104 Thanks to Carol Scott, Jennifer Aaker, Bob Bjork, Gavan Fitzsimons, Debbie MacInnis and Don Morrison for their generous donations of time and support to my dissertation research, upon which this paper is based. Special thanks to Jennifer for her insight and editing skills in creating this version of the paper. This research was funded in part by the Procter and Gamble Marketing Innovation Fund. Particular thanks to Chris Allen for his efforts in facilitating my relationship with P & G. Abstract Emotional advertisements have a substantial impact on consumer attitudes, as well as upon purchase intentions. However, research on the influence of emotional appeals on memory has been somewhat mixed, with some researchers asserting that they result in poor consumer memory, while others argue that if tested properly, they have a substantial impact. The current research addresses these mixed results by relying on an accessibility/diagnosticity framework to explore the effect of emotions on consumer implicit and explicit memory.

Myocardial Infaraction

...Aldosterone: Role in Edematous Disorders, Hypertension, Chronic Renal Failure, and Metabolic Syndrome. Schrier RW, Masoumi A, Elhassan E. University of Colorado Denver, Aurora, Colorado. Abstract The role of aldosterone has expanded from the hormone's genomic effects that involve renal sodium transport to nongenomic effects that are independent of the effect of aldosterone on sodium transport. The nongenomic effects of aldosterone to increase fibrosis, collagen deposition, inflammation, and remodeling of the heart and blood vessels, however, are markedly increased in the presence of high sodium intake. The genomic effect of aldosterone increases renal sodium transport, but the administration of large doses of aldosterone to normal individuals does not cause edema, relating to the phenomenon of "aldosterone escape"; however, in edematous disorders including cardiac failure, cirrhosis, and nephrotic syndrome, impaired aldosterone escape leads to renal sodium retention and edema formation. There is now considerable evidence for the nongenomic effects of aldosterone in several important diseases. Thus, low dosages of mineralocorticoid antagonists, with little or no effect on urinary sodium excretion, have been shown to afford a beneficial effect on morbidity and mortality in patients with advanced cardiac failure and after acute myocardial infarction. Three-drug-resistant hypertension has also been found to respond to spironolactone in modest dosages. The combination of......
