Spirituality and Trauma

...of victims of emotional trauma particularly in disaster mental health studies. In this paper the value of spirituality in providing emotional care to survivors of trauma is analyzed. Why is the value of spirituality in emotional care important to me? Conventional wisdom has held to the notion that boys are better at math than girls. Perhaps, this age old belief was responsible for Mattel the company that produced “Teen talk Barbie” in 1992 to create a Barbie doll that had among its stored phrases, one phrase that said, “Math class is tough!”. This phrase was stored with 270 other girl talk phrases such as “I love shopping” and “Will we have enough clothes!”. The result was that Mattel was soundly criticized and quickly changed the doll’s offending phrase a few months later. In spite of Mattel’s effort to correct a message that verbalized an inherent cultural bias, one wonders if the is any accuracy to the stereotype that associate math being difficult with the female gender and whether math is less difficult for males. Bryner (2007) indicated that women are still outnumbered by men in math science and engineering fields. Tachibana (2010) posited that as much as 90 percent of the engineers in the United States are male. Mathematics is considered a gateway such to the hard sciences....

...that the United States has is the High School education system. Students have little or no preparation for life after high school compared to other nations which poses a disadvantage when trying to further their education. The United States is one of or the most powerful countries but continually flows short in the educational system. One of the major issues is the lack of the arts within the academic system. They focus today is typically how to take an exam. For example, Florida focuses so much on the FCAT that they typically focus only on English and Math. High Schools keep using this “Teaching to the Test “technique, which only teaches students how to prepare for the FCAT and this narrows the curriculum a lot. This issue leads to the question, “Is the Geography and Math knowledge of an American student as good as European student?” Every year a test is given to every student in High School. This test has basic questions about Geography and it measures the level of every student within their grade. Back in 2010 after collecting back the test from students and grading it, the National Assessment of Education Progress publicized that only a 25% of American schoolchildren passed the test and that only a 20% of 12th graders passed. This is probably one the saddest news America had to deal with when speaking of education. After the news was published to the public, Daniel Edelson, vice president for education with the National Geographic Society, explained in an......

Breaking Through

...Breaking Through It is difficult for almost everyone to learn a new language. Not everyone achieves that goal. Some of them quit during the process, while other will struggle to achieve their goal. Each person quits for personal reasons. My experience is different from others. Before I even began the path to learn English, I thought about giving up. Later, when I was in that path, I almost gave up a couple of times. I struggled immensely in middle school; but not so much during my four years at high school. First, I gave up because I have heard that learning English was not easy. My old friends used to tell me learning English as your second language is very, very difficult almost impossible; “only few can make it,” they said. Second, my first day of school in this great nation was unpleasant. I considered that day, one of the worst days of my life. Looking back, now I consider it one of the great days of my life; because life without risks is no life. Third, my first two months at high school was like being in hell; because I was not being treated fairly by other students. The unpleasant moments I had during that two months was because of a lack of knowledge. Everything comes to an end sooner or later. When I was in Mexico. I wanted to learn English for a couple of reasons. One of them is because my parents wanted to bring me here to the United States to continue with my education. The other reason was because people that speak more than two languages......

Homework student had, the more negative their attitude was toward school. Plus it takes away from their social time, which is an important part of growing up. Kids need to learn social skills. Too much homework causes stress, as you probably know very well by now. Kids need to have down time too! Why does homework have such a small effect at the elementary level? One reason is that young children have limited attention spans and are very distractible. It is difficult to do homework in a house that has many distractions. Teachers need to work with parents and help students find a quiet space to do homework. Most professional organization in education agrees that homework should never exceed 10 - 20 minutes per day in grades K - 2. In grades 3 - 6 homework should never exceed 30 - 60 minutes per day. Another reason elementary school children do not benefit much from homework is because these children tend not to have good study skills. They memorize information without understanding it. They put the same effort into studying difficult and easy material. They believe if something sounds familiar, they must know it. They do not know how to do self-tests. Teachers should show these students how to study and manage their time. Cooper did not say that homework is a bad...

Sat Essay

...Common SAT Essay Themes and Archetypes The makers of the SAT use several themes from which they draw essay questions. By knowing these themes ahead of time, you can prepare several preplanned examples to use for each theme. For example, take Thomas Edison. He used over 6000 filaments before finding one that worked in the electric light bulb. You could use this example for essays on adversity, success, history, and progress. The following is a list of these themes and real examples of essay questions produced by the College Board. The questions have been paraphrased for simplicity, but they provide you with an idea of how the themes are recycled each year. Theme: Adversity Do people benefit from adversity? Do people learn more from losing than from winning? Do people learn more from difficulty or from ease? Do people learn from their effort even if their goal is not reached? Does humor help in difficult situations? Theme: Success Do people put too much stress on winning? Can people be successful and ethical at the same time? Is persistence more important than ability in achieving success? Is optimism more important than realism in achieving success? Is idealism more important than practicality in achieving success? Is success a result of choices or of luck? Do people’s expectations of themselves affect their success? Can people be successful with low expectations? Is it better to have low expectations and meet them or high expectations and miss them? Do people have to...

...THE EFFECTS OF PERSONALITY TYPE ON ENGINEERING STUDENT PERFORMANCE AND ATTITUDES* R.M. Felder Department of Chemical Engineering North Carolina State University G.N. Felder Department of Physics Stanford University E.J. Dietz Department of Statistics North Carolina State University Abstract The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) was administered to a group of 116 students taking the introductory chemical engineering course at North Carolina State University. That course and four subsequent chemical engineering courses were taught in a manner that emphasized active and cooperative learning and inductive presentation of course material. Type differences in various academic performance measures and attitudes were noted as the students progressed through the curriculum. The observations were generally consistent with the predictions of type theory, and the experimental instructional approach appeared to improve the performance of MBTI types (extraverts, sensors, and feelers) found in previous studies to be disadvantaged in the engineering curriculum. The conclusion is that the MBTI is a useful tool for helping engineering instructors and advisors to understand their students and to design instruction that can benefit students of all types. I. INTRODUCTION People have different learning styles that are reflected in different academic strengths, weaknesses, skills, and interests. Given the almost unlimited variety of job descriptions within engineering, it is safe to say that......

The letter explains an opportunity that we are considering offering to pupils taking IGCSE, AS or A2 examinations this summer. The importance of effective revision in helping pupils achieve their best possible grade is well documented. Effective revision can often make the difference and help pupils achieve higher grades. We also believe that pupils find it difficult to revise at home, which can be stressful for parents too. We are therefore considering offering an intensive revision programme during the last major school holiday before the summer exams. Full details of the programme are set out in the letter. There is also a link to an online survey that will take a maximum of two minutes to complete. The purpose of the survey is to understand the level of interest in the revision programme. A large number of pupils have expressed an interest in attending the programme, but it can only run should there be sufficient demand. Please complete the online survey by Monday 2nd February to express an interest in learning more about the intensive revision programme. Key Stage 1 Open Forum The Key Stage 1 Parents’ Open Forum...
