Capstone SLC Descriptors The best reflections will show the thinking and actions that went into finishing this assignment as well as the process. Critical Thinker and Inquirer I have used this skill to defer which lead (How they start the story) is used.I used this skill by finding the lead intros and outros for several books to fill
I even received a comment that I was much more confident in presenting at the staff meetings and other work related presentations. The lowest ranking in audiovisual was contributed to the viewing on my home laptop. I thought about reserving a conference room for the presentation, but knew the turnout would have been lower if I did not present at staff meeting. For any future presentations, I will ask the ED leaders if we could have the meeting in one of the conference rooms for better viewing. In regards to the thirty minute time frame set by the ED director, I received a comment that should have presented a 20 minute power point and saved 10 minutes for questions and answers.
Vast numbers of stylistic choices present themselves to an author during the writing process. The impact stylistic choices make on a piece can determine the overall effectiveness of the message being conveyed. While choosing an effective device can prove difficult, Nancy Mairs expertly implemented the use of several devices in her piece “The Unmaking of a Scientist,” to amplify the influence a person 's style has on their work. Mairs’ use of juxtaposition emphasizes the stark contrast between straightforward scientists and cultivated essayist. Though juxtaposition may seem unnecessary to some readers, the use of juxtaposition in Mairs’ piece allows for the reader to understand the stark contrast between a scientist and a writer.
I was given the opportunity to submit assignment #2 early, and resubmit assignment #1 at the assigned due date for assignment #2. The constructive feedback that was given by the instructor after grading, pointed out how I needed to grab the readers’ attention by being firm without being conversational, stating opinions as if they were facts, avoiding paragraphs in the first person, and eliminating paragraphs that had weak word
The stark disparity of word choice needed in order to appeal to different audiences is revealed by the importance of terminology in “The Politics of Transhumanism and the Techno-Millennial Imagination, 1626-2030”, but not in “The Human Condition Hurts: We’d Be Fools Not to Better It”. In the op-ed article, Hughes employs informal and attention-catching language, easy for his audience to understand. In contrast, his academic article is directed towards experts already accustomed to the complex, theoretical ideas bursting within this field; as a result, he employs more specialized jargon. Hughes even adds in a list of keywords towards the end of his abstract: “Keywords: apocalypticism; body; cyberculture; End Times; Enlightenment; eugenics; extropians; libertarianism; millennialism; Singularity; technoprogressive; transhumanism” (The Politics of Transhumanism, 757) in order for academic experts to discover his article easily and provide a concise list of the topics explored in his work. Through this addition, Hughes proves the necessity of readers to be accustomed to these words when referencing his article; a marked contrast from his op-ed article, in which his choice of words are solely inserted for subtle humor, such as when describing the violent backlash that today’s ecologists would’ve stirred up during the adaptation of penicillin.
Note that most anthropological observations are done through experience and ethnology. This throws the profession into turmoil and casts a doubt in upcoming intellectuals as what kind of profession they are in and what is it classified as. However this debate is more centralized around methodology rather the context of the debate which is to what extent is anthropology a science. Exploiting the methodological side of anthropology as to how anthropologists reach their findings does not mean that anthropology should not be acknowledged as a science, rather it should be used to give much credit to this exceptional form of
When I read an academic article I know what parts to look at to understand what the authors are studying and wither they found a significant difference or not. I was able to use these skills to write my own research proposal and am looking forward to being able to conduct my own study in the
Absolutely, it is difficult to identify which method would best serve an intelligence study. In like manner, “Cline's folk theory of organizational design emphasized the difficulty of building and rebuilding the structure of the Intelligence Community over a long period of time”.1 The importance of theory in quantitative research begins with “interrelated set of constructs (or variables) formed into propositions, or hypotheses, that specify the relationship among variables (typically in terms of magnitude or direction)”. 2 In quantitative research, researchers often test theories as an explanation for answers to their questions, however, by comparing the use of theory in qualitative research is “more varied, the inquirer may generate a theory
The way in which I have decided to begin the debate surrounding challenges of ethnographic fieldwork is through considering definitions for both ‘ethnography’: “the study and systematic recording of human cultures; also; a descriptive work produced from such research.” (Merriam Webster Online) and ‘fieldwork’: “an essential aspect of all areas of anthropology because it is used to gather primary data, in other words fieldwork is how anthropologists collect the information used for their studies.” (Harris Jones
As you all know, psychologists use many different approaches to understand and explain human behavior, and I am going to talk about the social implications of socio-cultural psychology. The socio-cultural perspective, also known as cultural psychology is one of the many approaches that psychologists use to understanding why humans behave the way they do.3 Cultural psychology looks to understand human behavior and personality by examining the rules of the social group. Some of the factors that cultural psychologists try to focus are race, ethnicity, gender, family, and traditions. In addition, the socio-cultural perspective can also help explain how a similar behavior can be interpreted differently in two countries.3 Since socio-cultural psychology
However, it will based on counting by $5.00. Therefore, their maximum dollar amount will be 15.00. IEP Goal: The student will compare the value of ten items on a grocery list while spending less than $15.00 by referencing whether or not the items are needs or wants.

By the end of my study, I expect to have gained detailed knowledge about what or who was responsible for human creation, along with how the creation of humans transpired. With this I will be able to understand the similarities and differences between the Quileute myth on human origin in comparison to others myths I have learned thus far. Additionally, with this information, I will be able to organize and construct a two-page essay report that provides the necessary details and information that I have acquired. In order to obtain the necessary information for my study, I will be begin by locating academic articles and journals, along with history resources for my research. Additionally, I will look at documentation from the territory and surrounding areas of the Tribe, La Push,
In the big picture is this an ethical practice? Yes. Janet Napolitano wants faculty to attend seminars to help faculty identify and “interrupt” micoaggression and develop “an inclusive department/school climate,” (Hedtke, 2015). Creating awareness for faculty and providing seminars is a great way however; I feel the approach should be slightly different. Faculty should be taught the awareness of micoaggresions and the affect they can have on students.
These links lead to the descriptions of my genre’s audience, rhetorical factors, structure, and style of writing; with all of the information presented on my website there should be a good enough description of developmental collaborative writing to help my fellow classmates understand what it is. At the beginning of major writing assignment number one I began my thought process by plotting out how
