One example of figurative language in Laurie Hale Anderson’s book “Speak” is when Melinda decides to rid her garden of all weeds, and does some spring cleaning after it finally stops raining during May.

She decides first to rake the leaves “suffocating the bushes” ; Melinda is ridding the demons from herself on the first layer of her skin. She says that she has to “fight the bushes (her problems)” and the bushes don’t like getting cleaned out but it is something one has to do if one makes

Throughout the course of the semester, the most talked about topic is cultural competence. The book defined cultural competence as “the ability to effectively provide services cross culturally” (Jandt, 2013). This term is important in the health care field because a variety of people from different cultures will be encountered. As a result, a conflict may arise between the health care provider and the patient, and it is the nurse’s job to provide the best care that accommodates the patient’s views as well. In order to provide the best care, the journal article provides ways on how to treat patients who have opposing views.

The current makeup of the British constitution is an uncodified, flexible set of rules that are created by Parliament. The core argument that lies beneath the question of whether Britain’s constitution should be codified is whether flexibility is preferred over security.

However, the execution of codifying the British constitution could potentially create greater challenges for Britain in an increasingly unpredictable time.
Life is extremely short, however not extremely simple. We as humans have been allotted such short amount of time to go from knowing just the basics of survival, to having survival being the last problem that we are worried about and attempt to learn every aspect this universe has to offer. We have been able to work with others despite the many differences throughout history, and learn from previous mistakes to avoid catastrophe in the future. Today’s society is granted the ability to affect the entire world and life as a whole, and we must continuously learn and gain experience from one another in order to succeed to the highest degree. This is why teaching our youth about acceptance of diversity is such an important task, especially individuals that will be the leaders for tomorrow’s organizations.
Diversity and inclusion, with any future clients, should be personalized and should work their alongside rather than for them. This concept is imperative to me and I feel confident that I will execute this as a social worker. However, I need to become assertive with challenging discrimination, oppression and cultural assumptions. I need to attend more conferences that focus on this area of professional development. Next year, as a student with less responsibilities, I am hoping to immures myself actively in discussion about cultural competence.

Racial segregation has always been, and continues to be, a significant issue in the field of education. The 1954 ruling in the Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education forever altered the legal structure of schools. Intentional separation of ethnicities was no longer an acceptable norm within the system of public education. Affirmative action was one proposal that ensured an equal balancing of race among school and work settings. Recently, however, the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of state bans on affirmative action.
