While introducing the basis of his argument, Smith first focuses on helping his readers understand the question of: what is education’s purpose? Smith explains that there is a “tension” in education policy in regards to this question. Policymakers tend to express their opinions on this question dichotomously, or in extremes, rousing controversy and debate . Smith emphasizes the importance of this debate by citing the nature of this debate as the reason why the public should question the purpose of education. “The passion of [the debaters] demonstrated vividly that this question is seen to be critical for society to address” (Smith 32).
He argues the importance of the believer and how the skills apply to any course because “we need the believing game to help us find flaws in our own thinking” (5). The believing game helps readers examine ideas from the writer’s point of view and seek ways of bettering it so they can understand the text. Professor Elbow’s second idea concerns the doubter, and how this method leads to the development of critical thinking, “the doubting game can reveal flaws or bad logic in arguments that support one position or another” (6). A doubter becomes skeptical of ideas presented to them. They distance themselves from ideas to form a better judgment.
Peer Mediators must learn how to decipher from two sides of an argument, then suggest a solution that both party's can agree to. Peer Mediators must understand skills like attentive listening. Without attentive listening the Mediator could become lost in the argument. Note taking is also a good skill for Peer Mediators to practice so they can reflect back to the problems of each
For Epictetus, some of the things that are in our control are our likes, opinions, and pursuits. While, the things out of our control is the body, your reputation, property, and instruction. In a stoic view one's disappointment only comes into play when one attaches their dislikes to what is considered uncontrollable. Contrarily, one is in control of their emotions because they are in control of their actions. My argument based upon Epictetus stoicism rhetoric is that Thoreau himself is a stoic when considering his philosophical outlooks.
As he is very critical of Hester, the words in his sentences tend to be negative. These negative words are all meant to “wound” Hester Prynne. Due to their bullet point format, Lawrence is expressing this very plainly. This allows him to show his disapproval of Hester as he feels that Hester’s sin is unforgivable and she should be shunned for eternity instead of painted as a hero, which is what Hawthorne
Truman and Guy Montag also have jobs that they dislike, and that they have questioned. The two men share struggles with who they have associated themselves with and how they think about things. Truman has troubles trusting others around him and questioning his life choices when he notices the way others act around him. This also relates to Guy Montag because he does the same thing as well such as: not being able to trust his wife or his boss, questioning his job, and questioning the way others in his society interact and communicate. One major similarity that I found both in the book and the movie was that Truman and Guy both deal with their bad
In the book “ The Peace Maker”, Ken Sande says that conflicts have two basic issues: material and personal. “Material issues involve substantive matters such as property, money, rights and responsibility” Personal issues involve our attitudes and feelings toward others that result of how we have treated one another.” Both issues were evident in both cases, and as a mediator it was imperative that I understood which issue was the most important. The re-establishment of their relationships was key for me, it was something that they were losing. Luke 17:1 (KJV) says “It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! We are to help our clients to see that our fights begin within ourselves as noted in class.
This emotional response can vary from irritation, anger, affection, feeling of empathy or even a recollection of my past life experiences that I once had myself. This could lead to causing my advice to differ then it usually would, and in a sense cause me to give advice that will allow me to unconsciously live "vicariously" through my client and their issues. I believe that the unavoidable power inequality can also come to play here with this form of countertransference, initially due to the client’s vulnerable locus of control. They come and they seek the counselor 's advice asking what to do, kind of like " Mirror, Mirror on the wall … where do I go from here? ", with me being the mirror, in turn making my answer want to be what I would do or what I would have done differently in my past experience.
The Bureaucracy in our country is largely disapproved of throughout our country. Americans are extremely critical of the Bureaucracy and claim that it is not very effective in getting the done. The Bureaucracy is expensive and ineffective, and this inefficiency stems from a variety of factors. The main problems of bureaucracy are stiff rules and regulations, impersonality, customer dissatisfaction, slow decision making and limited capabilities of workers. In the bureaucracy, selected individuals are the decision makers instead of elected authorities and representatives.
The main character continuously faults himself for the way that others treat him . When the character is treated as though he is as bad as a rapist he feels “ embarrassed, and dismayed..” (542), when he has done nothing wrong to get this kind of treatment ,and he is only being judged by his race. Staples uses diction and syntax to make it sound as if the character believes that it’s his fault that he is stereotyped. This emotional appeal grabs the audience’s attention and their sympathy. Self blame isn’t the only emotion that staples uses, but he also shows anger in his writing.

Great men are almost always bad men” (Dalberg-Acton, 1887). Exactly my point; the chief deputy has much control of the administration-- and-- despite his apathy, which by no means defines him as a bad man. Which is nevertheless another social complication; not all officers are bad people. Though as humans, we intuitively judge others inertly based only on what we perceive. We like to affirm that our beliefs and logical opinions are free from error.
Written Assignment #1 The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Aysen Lengerli Topcu Written Assignment Existing client assessment data could be both beneficial and misleading for a counselor in many ways in treatment planning. Especially, in the initial intake interview, counselors attempt to understand and explore the client’ problematic areas, history, functionality, previous mental, physical history, cultural factors, and so forth as well as to establish a rapport. At this time, obtained data helps the counselor make a decision about the next step. For example, counselors consider that which additional test/instruments are necessary to get a better understanding about the client, to conceptualize the problem, and
Perhaps the best way to deal with conflict is to simply not give up or not stay silent when conflict and wrongdoings are happening such as in “Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat” by Winston Churchill and in “Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech” by Elie Wiesel and perhaps a closer look must be taken at how these methods affect the situation, how they affect those involved, and how this can help with a person’s emotional well-being. To begin with, what one says in an argument or in a terrible event can have far-reaching effects on the situation itself. Various instances can be accumulated that show that how one reacts to something is just as important as the solution to that problem. For example, as stated by Kim Morgan in “Resolving
