One example of one important action that develops to reveal the theme is in the beginning of the story. For example, in one scene Carly decides she needs the Taker to be able to get a better grade on the SAT. One important quote from this scene is when the author writes, “for better or worse, I made up my mind” (62).

Developing education and evaluation tools are essential steps when implementing a proposed intervention or evidence-based practice (EBP). According to Marschall et al. (2014) educational tools provide the key stakeholders with the necessary awareness, knowledge, understanding, and how to effectively utilize proposed intervention to eliminate a problem or improve patient care. This in turn will increase the likelihood of competency, compliance, and a successful implementation (Marschall et al., 2014).
When I was in the twelfth grade, a friend of mine was diagnosed with asthma. Because she was at boarding school, she had little knowledge on how to manage her illness. For several months after her diagnosis, she struggled with asthma attacks. After battling with her asthma for several months, she was advised to visit a website for patient engagement information. With the help of patient engagement technology, she gained more knowledge about asthma, and how to manage it.
It was at that moment I had to put my trust in a complete stranger, as they would take care of my child for the next seven hours. I would imagine the parents would contact the administration to seek additional information deeming the teacher as competent. As an administrator I would listen to the concerns of the parents. In addition, I would let them know that all teachers are observed/evaluated to ensure the students are receiving proper instruction.
Imagine you’re 15 and you walk into health class and everyone looks at you because you’re really stressed out about how you’re going to care for your child the way you need to. Less than 2% percent of pregnant teens will complete a college degree by the age of 30 and roughly 77% of teenage pregnancies are unplanned. Teenage mothers normally don’t realize that when they get pregnant, they need to look after the child, take care of it, love it, and most importantly shelter it. Meaning it’s time for them to grow up and live up to their responsibilities as a mother not just mess around and not graduate.
The iPad, with the right apps installed, is a very easy to use tablet that works very well for both children and adults. Children find it easy to use the touch screen to move within an app then scroll to various images and listen to the “electronic voice” so they can practice hearing and repeating the words. Further, the iPad can use additional apps to assist with providing augmentative and alternative communication for students with various language disorders.
As assessments scores are recorded, I will know whether the lessons are on the right level or whether I teach all the topics effectively. I will also learn what areas students need to work on, which points need reviewing and whether I should spend more or less time on this material with the next course students. It is also important because I will have an evidence of students’ learning journey. It is required by funding body to regularly inform about students’ progress. The class profile form will show if the students achieve the outcomes and goals.
Upon beginning my first class at Walden University, it has been difficult to see myself getting through this 8-week course. Furthering my education has been something I have struggled to accomplish for the last 4 years. I almost decided to give up and continue being just a high school teacher. However, being a senior teacher that motivates my students to go above an beyond to reach their goal has pushed me to work hard and start a new journey. Though it is only the beginning of my journey, I can see graduation.
In this school/district, staff development learning methods mirror, as closely as possible, the methods teachers are expected to use with their students. According to the apparent practices of administration, there are two areas that Canby Lane Elementary School excels in Professional Development opportunities that greatly impact student achievement and align with the Standards of Professional Learning: 1. According to Learning Forward (2015), professional learning produces changes in educator practice and student learning when it sustains implementation support over time. Canby Lane administration ensures that support is given over time by utilizing weekly grade level and faculty meetings to provide PD opportunities for professional growth. During these meetings, teachers perform various tasks such as analyze student performance on district, school- wide and grade level tasks as well as conduct vertical team meetings to determine trends in performance among ascending and descending grade levels.
