As shown by the tests score, we can see that Myer-Briggs gives us idea of what kind of person we are but in order to determine meaningful relationship among different types of personalities, the big five test is required. It also shows that our traits score can also lie between the two personality
The idea that children have bad parents, bad doctors, bad teachers, and attend bad schools if they have ADHD. Sometimes, it is easier to blame someone rather than accept the truth and move forward. Medication is not the only answer, and there are other ways to “free” people (Danforth and Kim). Often times, parents can jump to conclusions thinking that medication will solve all problems. This goes to show that people cannot stay trapped in their minds.
Interactionists argue that language development is both biological and social. Interactionists argue that language learning is influenced by the desire of children to communicate with others. The Interactionists argue that "children are born with a powerful brain that matures slowly and predisposes them to acquire new understandings that they are motivated to share with others" ( Bates,1993;Tomasello,1995, as cited in shaffer,et al.,2002,p.362). The main theorist associated with interactionist theory is Lev Vygotsky.Interactionists focus on Vygotsky 's model of collaborative learning ( Shaffer,et al.,2002). Collaborative learning is the idea that conversations with older people can help children both cognitively and linguistically (
The WMI is a measure of working memory abilities, which involve attention, concentration, mental control and reasoning. The PSI is composed of subtests measuring the speed of mental and eye/hand coordination. The PSI provides a measure of the child’s ability to quickly and correctly scan, sequence, or discriminate simple visual information. This composite also measures short-term memory, attention, and visual-motor coordination. The WAIS-IV uses standard scores (M = 100, SD = 15) for the VCI, PRI, WMI, PSI, GAI, Cognitive Proficiency Index (CPI) and FSIQ, and scaled scores (M = 10, SD = 3) for the 15 subtests (Sattler & Ryan, 2009).
Tests are very crucial to education because they show what a student knows, if we took these tests out completely then we would have no idea if students are improving or declining. “Standardized tests are unfair and discriminatory, because students with diverse backgrounds and skill levels are expected to answer questions written for the white, abled majority." I think this point is very hard to argue with because if these tests are written for the white students, then how are students with a different background or diversity supposed to do well? One improvement could be that maybe there isn’t just one test for the whole country or the state, but instead there are multiple tests for multiple regions. Certain regions get certain tests because of the situation they are in.
PART ONE: AUTHOR’S THESIS / PURPOSE: Daniel Keyes wrote “Flowers for Algernon” to send the “mindset/thinking process” of mentally disabled people. Throughout the book you get to know how Charlie spells and thinks. Daniel Keyes also made this writing to send a message to people, and, that message is that you should not make fun of people who are mentally disabled, etc. Daniel Keyes also wrote this to speak on “Increasing Intelligence” and how it feels to be experimented on. Daniel Keyes shows you throughout the story how society looks at mentally disabled people.
In spite of the effective treatments for interventions for children in the foster care system who struggle with mental health issues. Barriers to care remain in the United States, and a lack of resources including human and financial along with stigma are just a few why some youth are not able to receive treatment. Though some progress has been made in developing effective treatments for children and adolescents with mental disorders. Priority is given to those who are not labeled with the association of mental illness. Therefore, more efforts are needed to get information to school professionals, foster parents, and providers This education may be beneficial in sensitizing populations to understanding the mental health needs of children
Only discipline, causing pain to the four-year-old (and by pain, I do not necessarily mean physical pain) teaches him/her what is allowed.” This comment backs what I stated about a child learning to respect authority. From a more scientific approach in a Newsweek article that followed a nurturing study related to spankings conducted by Drs. Jennifer Lansford and Ken Dodge revealed some insightful details on the effect on corporal punishment in early age development this is apparent when the article states
As Michelle Obama once declared, “If my future was determined just by my performance on a standardized test, I wouldn’t be here. I guarantee you that.” The performance of a school’s organization is based off of the results of standardized tests taken by students (Walberg). Standardized tests are a guide to the board of education on how a school can improve its curriculum in a way that is most beneficial to students (Walberg). “The scores of standardized tests are not the same as student achievement” (Harris). In spite of the people who believe that standardized tests are a key factor to determine a student’s academic abilities, standardized tests distract students from their current studies, they are only designed for one way of learning and comprehending material, and they are biased to students.
They also believe that children and teenagers may not handle learning about mental health the correct way. Those who argue against teaching about mental health in schools argue that “[educators] are causing widespread confusion among the majority when we engage [children] in discourse about mental health” and that they “might be encouraged to pathologize their emotions” after watching a video. (Gill n.p.). The author of the article is claiming that only a minority of people are affected by mental illness. She is also arguing that children might think of their emotions as “wrong” even though they are not, suggesting that they cannot handle learning about mental illnesses.
