I planned my topic before I was assigned to do a research paper. I know at the beginning of my senior year I would need a good topic that I was interested in and I could argue about. It took me a while to figure out a topic that dealt with diesels, but I knew that no matter what the topic was I definitely wanted it to be about diesels. After deciding on my topic for conducting the argumentative research paper I used the resources available on Discus, online, and in the library to help me complete an annotated bibliography. The annotated bibliography was a big part of the research paper, using the reliable sources I learned new and interesting facts/quotes that I added to my paper.
After completing this activity, Vanessa was able to explain why it is important to fill out forms similar to the Voucher Check Request Form to their entirety and teach me the process for providing the needs of clients within the DSS agency. Another activity I had the opportunity of completing was sorting case files in the file room. Although this was an activity I repeated several times in the Fall 2016 semester, I noticed the difference in how both agencies handled their caseloads and the clients they serve. Completing this activity helped in improving my competency skill 3. This skill requires social workers to be able to Analyze models of assessment, prevention, intervention, and evaluation utilizes appropriate definitions and terminology.
At my company Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee we also do the Performance Management and Development to measure our performance. Our calls are listened to by our quality department to see if answered all questions and if every question and answer documented in our system. The report is sent to our supervisor and manager to notify them of our individual performances and then it is averaged out to get the report of our entire department. On our yearly evaluation we have to set goals that we want to achieve such as attending one of our workshops on our campus or starting our college degree. Later in the year around October we go back into our evaluation and state whether we have accomplished this goal and provide proof such as a certification
If I could change the assignment I would make the requirements clearer in the assignment document in the checklist. Additionally, standardized scaling needs to be used, as some TA’s grade differently than other TA’s. The assignments have many unwritten expectations and requirements not only for content but also in formatting. These issues need to be addressed to not only minimize confusion amongst the students, but also to decrease the amount of time TA’s repeat themselves about these unwritten requirements. My level of interest in the experiments that were conducted in the lab did not change over the semester.

I am emailing you today because I would like to interview to be a DSCI 302 teaching assistant for fall 2016. I have completed my online application, and my answer to the additional question is below. I would like to be a TA for this class because I have used the TA 's for both my DSCI 202 and 302 classes as a valuable resource and would like to be able to give back. Throughout both classes I went in and met with the TA 's routinely to insure that I understood the material fully and had the information necessary to be successful in the classes. I know several other people that have done so as well and we are all very grateful for the time they take to help make the material click.
This weeks lessons paved the way for us to think about different options when analyzing ourselves and others and what each are capable of. Opinions will always differ but incorporating the Devil 's Advocacy technique in all situations provide a checks and balancing method that we currently use in the United States Judicial system. This method does add extra steps, manpower, resources and brainstorming, but it will ensure we have the most accurate and well thought out product of information that is not skewed by cognitive and perceptual biases. An individual analyst or a team can spend an hour or two articulating and reviewing the key assumptions. Rechecking assumptions also can be valuable at any time prior to finalizing judgments, to insure that the assessment does not rest on flawed premises.
D: The topic of discussion for our group was the LQBTQ community. Our facilitator started out by reviewing the norms for this topic and also opened the floor up about anything else that the group members may have been interested in talking about, even possibly expanding on what was discussed the previous week. We then did some group exercises such as stating our name and favorite color then did the trust building exercise, fear in a hat. We then did individual self-assessments and discussed that. The range of score went from a low score of 20 to a high score of 100.
Drucker Reflection After having taken the Sheltered English Immersion course this past summer, much of the information that was presented in this article was a review for me. However, there was some information that I found to be interesting and will now look upon my current instruction to see if I should correct my strategies. One area in particular that I find to be essential for literacy instruction with intermediate English Language Learners is developing vocabulary. For example, one point that I found interesting was the integration of vocabulary with instruction rather than just pre-teaching vocabulary. This seems contrary to was I was told in my SEI course as we learned about the Seven-Step Process and Illustrated Dictionaries as strategies to teach vocabulary.
They should also be provided with semi-humane work conditions. Some of these conditions should be: ventilated buildings, safety gear, and outdoor bathroom facilities. They should also be given 8-hour days instead of 12-hour days. However, this would be a large step to take to meet even a few of these conditions. To change American trade policy to improve the conditions of these child workers would take years; However, it could be done.
Also, we need to send a list of things to improve team dynamic to Tracy and SAs. Michael will take responsibility for making constructive comments on the final report so other team members can fix their part. Later next week, each team member also has to do a peer review and finish the final essay
