Today, On Wednesday, September 9, 2015, I attended a beginning of the school year healthcare meeting. The annual meeting was conducted by one of the school nurses and it included all of the second grade teachers. Before today’s meeting I had never attended a health care meeting, but I certainly knew of the importance of having a good relationship and communication between school nurses and educators. A teacher’s responsibility includes so many variables including and foremost a student’s care and safety. Additionally, School nurses help educators in ensuring and caring for student’s and their healthcare needs.
Population First, because my research was focused on understanding the portrayal of Native Americans, it was important to get the perspective from Native Americans themselves. The opinions of a sample of Native students were collected as a way to begin answering these questions and to provide a basis for further research. The population for this research was ten native students recruited from the Speel-Ya program and by email invitation at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande. I introduced myself to them at one of the Speel-Ya meetings. To protect their identities, I decided to give them pseudonyms.
While some of the cultural norms and expectations varied slightly amongst the members of the Sioux, Navajo, and Cherokee tribes, it seems as though the cultural communicative behaviors and/or many of the norms and expectations were overall exceedingly similar across these three tribes. Thus, we feel that while culture may vary slightly across tribes through their rituals and ceremonies, cultural values and identities were more related and applied throughout the general Native American heritage, rather than being tribe
During my course with NSCC, where I am studying to become a Continuing Care Assistant. Each student is required to work in a continuing care facility alongside other health care providers for a month. I attended skills development placement at Harbour View Lodge located in Sheet Harbour. This placement has given me the opportunity to apply my knowledge, and skills that I have studied and practiced in the classroom. When entering the facility the first week I felt nervous and excited at the same time.
Patient-Centered Care--I demonstrated patient-centered care by respecting the patient 's mother preference. For example, the mother of my patient was asking to pray with them before the surgery. I respectfully joined with them to show I care for her child and respect her preference as I provide care to her daughter.
The Indigenous Peoples Day Symposium was a panel presentation by four main speakers who identify as Indigenous Peoples. The presentation began with singing and honoring them. After this concluded, the first speaker, Chebon Kernell, gave his speech about Indigenous Peoples. Kernell’s was the most engaging in my opinion because he talked about how “a long time ago they were here” and their footprints were made right here on the TCU campus. He shared his own personal experience, beginning with when he witnessed that he was being taught, “this is how it was supposed to be, God’s will.”
The Black Boy by Richard Wright has the Mom of the boy teaching, her son to stand up for himself. Also in The Red Hat by Rachel Hadas, the parents want to teach their son to be brave. Both of the passages are very similar but still very different. As how they are similar by the parents wanting to teach them a lesson but it is different in how they teach the lesson to them.
A Ghostly Spark Introduction (reveal): Native American culture has always been an interest of mine. Since my beginning with the Boy Scouts of America on my path to Eagle Scout, I have come closer to the dense but often forgotten history of the First Nation people of America. Upon joining the Order of the Arrow, the BSA’s honor society centered around Native American virtues and beliefs, I have continued to take it upon myself to learn more about the long forgotten Native history. While I knew about the general struggles the Native Americans faced as “white man” invaded the unharnessed Western frontier, I had not learned about the specific catalyzing incidents that caused such conflict and suffered between these two cultures. While searching through topics like native music and combat, I knew I needed an event that sparked the rift between these two types of people, growing U.S. government and early
With all the difference in opinion me and my dad share when it comes to our beliefs, one thing he said to me have never left me. I remember when I was sixteen years old me and my dad had a discussion on the idea of race and how it affect the lives of minorities in this country and around the world. I am sure this is a conversation most black parents have with their children I least once a day in one form or another. But during our discussion he told me that I was going to have a hard time in life. Because I don’t conform to society norm, I view the world in a critical or analytical lens.
The original goal for my MYP was to research 5 different cultures and find similarities of the cultures and find the reasons why they are similar, but then I changed my project to research architecture in different areas, I picked 3 major areas with completely different architecture style and researched the different types of architectural type in that area and how the architecture changed over time in that area. I picked personal and cultural exploration as my global context. Picking this context changes the way I did my project before the global context, I didn 't have a plan on how I am going to present my project to an audience, but with the global context, I decided to make a poster as my display to help people understand my project and
