For the last six years, I have been working in the substance abuse industry in both inpatient and outpatient settings. It would be fair to say that most people that are in need of substance abuse treatment have a co-occurring disorder such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and anxiety. These people are diagnosed by a psychiatrist or medical doctor and are typically given medication to help the patient.
The QRI-4 guideline suggested Tessa begin reading the word lists at the upper middle grade level, two levels below her current grade level. However, it was necessary to test back to the fifth grade level due to Tessa’s performance on the suggested starting point. Tessa completed the fifth grade word list automatically with 90% accuracy, in the allotted time, signifying she read the words at the independent level. When analyzing the sixth grade word list, Tessa automatically identified 70% of the words, indicating she was identifying words at the instructional level. According to her performance on the upper middle school level word list, Tessa read a total score of 60% on the upper middle school grade word list, representing a frustration level. Although Tessa’s frustration level was determined, she was presented the high school word list and obtained a score of 35%.
In chapter five, Greene and Lee (2011) discuss about the importance of goals and how to define the goals from the client’s perspective. There are a couple of questions that a practitioner can use to help define the goals for the individual, or in the case a group. I could select a couple of different questions to help define the goals of this group. There are two questions that I feel might work well to define goals for this group. The first question I would ask to the group members would be in the form the time travel format. The question would be, “Imagine that you have been given the gift of a time travel with the ability to travel two years into the future. Let us all imagine that at this time in the future your feelings of sadness, loneliness, anxiety, and loss have been lessened or you hare successfully able to cope.
Teaching the lesson on characters viewpoint, I used the bottom-top approach to help students understand what they were looking for when describing the viewpoint of a character. When starting the lesson, I had the student explain to me what is a character and how can the reader know who is the main character. Once students were able to define a character, we changed the discussion to thinking of how every character is different. Students were able to successfully describe to why characters in a story each character is acts or thinks different. The next step was going over how to describe students viewpoints by focusing on the characters actions, how they feel, and what they see through the story. When reading the book, I insured to make pauses
An acronym for Bible is Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. The Bible is our manual for living and dealing with life on life’s terms. Because we are saved does not mean we will not face persecutions, adversity, hardships, or offenses. On the contrary, Jesus makes it clear that we are going to be persecuted, and told us in John 15:20b, “If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you.” Apostle James in his letter tells us to “count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations (James 1:2). It is in those tough times that our faith is tested and faith not tested is a faith that cannot be trusted. Daniel’s faith was tested, and he passed the test with flying colors.
Instead of scheduling the traditional four 15 week courses that meet 3 hours a week each, I would offer courses in one month intervals. This would consist of one class meeting for three weeks at three hours a day, five days a week and the fourth week being considered a transitional break. The fourth week would not be considered a “finals” week. Any required final exam would need to be taken on the third Friday of the course (the last class day) during the normal class period. This would leave the transition week open for teachers to input final grades. Each semester would require four classes to be taken in a four-month period for students to qualify for “full time” status over a five-month, five course time period. This five course time period is in the event a student needs to drop a course and still desires to be full-time.
Analepsis- The entire first chapter of Child 44 is an analepsis, or more commonly known as a flashback. This chapter takes the reader twenty years into the past in order to view what we later find out is Leo and his younger brother Andrei hunting a cat in the wild in order to feed their mother. Analepsis is also used in Child 44 when Leo is injected with a medicine in order to make him tell the truth. During this time Leo is forced to remember his childhood and when his “mother and father” kidnaped him in the forest to save their biological child, Leo.
The data I will be collecting is from a primary source as the groups of Year 7’s and Year 10’s will be completing the practical where they will see how quick they can find the same five words in the three languages. It will also be discrete even though time is continuous so the results will be clearer. The data will then be recorded onto a table and after, put together on a data sheet using excel. I am using a sample as it makes the investigation fair and also means a range of unbiased results are created from it. This is the best way since it means that I will produce a more appropriate representation of my results. I will be getting this sample by using a random number generator that I will be creating in excel using the control, ‘=ROUND(RAND()*314+2,0
Observation is the tool that practitioners use to obtain the necessary information that helps them to plan effectively for each child. Observations are considered to be an important part while working with the children. There are number of reasons why recorded observations are required.
