Many of these owners buy the first fish food they see for their fish, but is the food they’re buying what the fish prefer? The importance of this subject is to find which fish food betta fish prefer to eat, be it regular food or a homemade food. Research on betta fish needed to be done of course and the research we did included recipes and ingredients that betta fish can be fed. It also included basic instructions, tips, and facts on proper betta fish care. Some of this information included feeding, housing, mating, how much and when they should eat, etc.
The hand washing is then assessed by practical examination the expected outcome is that when students are in practice that they may identify the moments when hand washing is needed. The moments would then be the conditioned stimulus and the constant response being social hand washing techniques. This then can be described as a conditioned response as the student was taught the skill, they repeatedly practiced it then in practice can identify the moment as
It focuses on respect for authority, developing sound habits of the mind, and training in fundamentals” (p.7). On the other hand, Perennialism as defined by Ganly (2009) is “a teacher centered philosophy that focuses on the values associated with reason. It considers knowledge as enduring, seeks everlasting truths, and views principles of existence as constant or unchanging” (p. 6). As an Essentialist, New Fist wanted to create systematic education where he made comparisons between the children and the adults and found that the children had no purpose of doing something whereas the adults were motivated to work for security, food and shelter (M Cohen, 1999) . The children were taught three subjects and were engaged because they found it to be purposeful.
A higher education pushes individuals to think, question and explore new and valuable ideas. An excellent education teaches students how to credibly think and prioritise when learning. David Wallace, who gave the Kenyon commencement speech, quoted, “[Learning how to think] means being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience”. In his speech, Wallace is endorsing the idea that a higher education doesn't just throw knowledge at students, but it teaches them how to selectively compose their thoughts and construct a meaning from knowledge. Wallace also makes the point that individuals need to learn to adjust their “natural default setting” to become less self-centered.
Throughout this speech, Wallace deviates from one example to the next, but he stayed consistent in encouraging students to think for themselves instead of being like a rat in a machine to get cheese. I agree with David Foster Wallace’s thesis that students should get off the crutch of having someone else think for them because his method of thinking allows students to intellectually flourish, and it will merely bring about a studious change in the world. Wallace’s speech was very anecdotal and allegorical in the sense that he used many examples and stories to explain why students should make their own decisions. In the speech, Wallace states, “It is unimaginably hard to do this, to stay conscious and alive in the adult world day in and day out. Which means yet another grand cliché turns out to be true: your education really IS the job of a lifetime.
Have students discuss with partners and have them come up with a few example of why the water cycle is important. While discussing have them think of times they have seen the water cycle happen. After the discussion is coming to an end the teacher will talk about how the water cycle is important to the environment because it provides animals and plants constant water to survive. The students will work in groups and create their own version of the water cycle on chart
The hierarchical structure that dominates pedagogy today ensures just that. Students are expected to adapt the “humility of a worm” (Campbell 472) in order to successfully develop and portray the correct self, which becomes completely dependent on the opinions of the professor. This is the way in which the self develops when emphasis is placed on judging instead of coaching. The students are judged in light of what Faigley described as the professor’s “unstated cultural definitions of the self” (Faigley
If the government and other non-government organizations are to be followed, everyone should be responsible in their food choices. Responsibility comes in different types and forms, and one way to show commitment is by supporting sustainable fishing, and choose only sustainable food for the table. According to National Geographic, sustainable fishing ensures that the future generations will still have freshwater and ocean wildlife to enjoy when the time comes. The idea behind sustainable fishing is that the future generation can fish all they want, without having to compromise the ability of the future generations to fish and enjoy the water’s bounty. Unfortunately, this is now a problem in different parts of the world including Canada.
Throughout the speech of David Foster Wallace, I understand that the main idea he is trying to say in his speech is to think beyond of what you’ve be taught to. If you can think beyond what is right in front of you, then you have a skill that is beneficial to oneself. He encourages students to be more open minded, which allows oneself to think more “deeply”. The evidence that supports my idea is when the author gives the example of the two young fish who swam by the elder fish and did not understand what the elder fish meant by “How’s the water?”. The younger fish in the story represents people who only knows what is that is in front of them and does not think beyond it.
Self-Assessment According to Anderson & Madigan (2005), the first strategy or step that should be taken in creating a culturally responsive learning environment is teacher self-assessment. A teacher needs to assess their personal culture to learn how their own values and lifestyles may create biases towards other cultures. Once a teacher has familiarized themselves with their own prejudices, they can work on ways to embrace different cultures and create a learning environment that encourages success for diverse students.
