The purpose of this research was to observe children who attended the Head Start REDI program and compare them to children who did not attend Head Start REDI. The researchers purposed the question: does the Head Start REDI program have an effect on a child’s social-emotional functioning? 356 children between the ages of 2-5 were selected in 25 head start centers in the state of Pennsylvania with the majority of the children living in poverty. The majority of the children were girls (54%) with boys being 46% of the children. The researchers collected assessments that measured various aspects of social behavior, learning behavior and interpersonal relationships that were completed by the Head Start REDI teacher’s right before the child entered
The article WHITE PRIVILEGE, COLOR AND CRIME: A PERSONAL ACCOUNT, is an important article concerning whiteness. But it did lack the experiences of others such as white males and male African Americans. The information is only restricted to white females and female African Americans. Despite this evaluation, the article did a great in describing what white privilege was and offer activism to combat this bad race relations. Lastly, the documentary White Like Me, was very informative.
The voting act was an act that supported that african americans have the right to vote like any white man. Another tactic used was the idea of Black Nationalism. African Americans united together was under Malcolm X and islam. Malcolm X gave African Americans a idea of black nationalism and that they are good and better than white people. Also SNCC, which used to have white members purged them all so that the African Americans can do things themselves without the help of any white men.The movements that were upfront with stopping voting discrimination were most successful and gained support nationwide for its goals and objectives.
This means that, even if a student may not know a skill at the time of the test, it doesn’t mean that they will never know it. Unfortunately, standardized testing only gives a rough estimate of what a student can do or knows. It is impossible to tell if a student will improve, or even tell if the student just guessed on all of their answers for the test. This explains how standardized tests do not measure the correct information that school’s are actually searching
While some argue that keeping up with technological advances can work out as an advantage to those administering and taking the baseline and post-concussion tests, others think that it can hinder the concussion testing. Disadvantages of computerized test administration include some variability in timing measurements, a restricted response format (ie, not amendable to open-ended responses), and the common misperception that because the instructions, stimuli, and scoring are processed through a computer, there is less of a need for interpersonal instruction or supervision (Cernich, Brennana, Barker, & Bleiberg, 2007; Vaughan, Gerst, Sady, Newman, & Gioia, 2014). When there is a group setting, it is more difficult to supervise and to instruct. This brings forth the issue of being able to make sure each individual understands and comprehends the instructions given for the test. There are also factors of behavior when groups of athletes get together for concussion testing.
I believe that it is quite hypocritical from the US to possess a constitution, which is addressed to everyone, but not applied to everyone. For example, the fourteenth amendment, which clearly tackles the equal protection of the laws, only truly applies to the whites rather than all peoples in the United States. Therefore, I believe that the latter aspect confirms Harris’s claims of the privilege of being white. Currently, the US has made gigantic improvements in terms of race classification and property. However, according to Harris, the white privilege is almost impossible to remove because the Whites have never gone through the humiliation in history as the
I have been a victim of racism before, but it was not extreme like a majority of the cases happening now. In either case one thing is constant: ; white is the “superior race,” even though we are all the same. The quote that Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Judge me not by the color of my skin, but by the content of my character,” is still not true. Wallis did not explicitly say it, but his thoughts imply he believed that racial stereotypes are heavily used and influence people 's decisions. The amount (70 percent) of Christians that believe the murders of African Americans are simply incidental, and that race played no factor, utterly disgusts me.
For that reason, younger children would be better than adults because they have a limited understanding of words. A way to explain it is ‘inference’ (which is Stroop Effect) . Inference suggests that you aren’t in control of what you are paying attention (which is focusing on something and sometime forget about other things) to. For example, even if you are thinking the correct answer, you might say the wrong thing. The theories that are used to explain the ‘Stroop Effect’ is the speed of processing theory, and the selective attention theory.
Though “Explaining White Privilege” was a defense of Tim Wise’s original article, which was not included, he also managed to provide one example using disability people as evidence to support his argument. The main idea behind the article was that there is a certain advantage to being white that most minority groups do not have. Indeed, most people of color are suspected of having done something wrong and are stopped by police more often than white people (Wise 3-4). Tim Wise used several examples of discrimination based on color, to further illustrate his point about the advantages of whites over Latinos and African Americans. The author has made it very clear, there are less opportunities, for jobs, housing, and schooling for minorities than there is for whites (Wise2-4).
While, on the other hand, white people majority of the time faced less discrimination than other racial or ethnic group in the nation. Unlike African-American, whites receive no discrimination for their skin color or genetic traits. It is reasonable that whites were the first one who created resource shares for them to hold more privilege than other racial groups. For example, Peggy McIntosh stated here “Thinking through unacknowledged male privilege as a phenomenon, I realized that since hierarchies in our society are interlocking, there was most likely a phenomenon of white privilege which was similarly denied and protected. As a white person, I realized I had been taught about racism as something which puts others at a disadvantage, but had been taught not to see one of its corollary aspects, white privilege, which puts me at an advantage” (McIntosh, 1988).
