Throughout your coursework and professional career, it is extremely important that you write in your own words. You will often be tasked with reading psychological materials and then to incorporate the content into a paper or other type of written or oral presentation. At times, the material you are reading might be quite technical, and it may be challenging for you to present these ideas in your own words. This is your opportunity to practice this important skill.Review the following websites to learn about summarizing:? Purdue Owl: Quoting, Paraphrasing, and Summarizing? Example of a SummaryInstructions:For this assignment, you will:? Read the passage (below) from your textbook.? Think about the main ideas contained in the passage.? Make a list of four (4) main ideas contained in the passage.? In your own words, summarize the main ideas in paragraph form with a minimum of four (4)complete sentences.Textbook Passage:Imagine that while flipping through a new textbook you see that it spends a lot of time discussing experiments with rats and pigeons. Pretty boring, huh? But what if the principles discovered in those experiments could help you improve your study habits, understand your eating disorder, and overcome your fear of spiders? In fact, what if some of those same principles could even help you improve your romantic relationships? In general, a proper grounding in the basic principles of learning and behavior will help you understand why you behave the way you do and how your behavior can often be changed for the better. This knowledge can make you a better student, a better parent, a better worker, and a better friend or partner. In a very real sense, the principles described in this text have the potential to enrich both your life and the lives of others – even though many of these principles have been derived from research with rats and pigeons!
Instructions:Please read the attached PDF file and then follow assignment steps 1 – 5 with the correct format explained below. (Please follow instructions step by step!!!)Goal:apply the reading to a real-world event/issue or creative text of your choosing.FormatThe length for the application analysis is roughly 2.5 pages single-spaced followed by a Works Cited.Assignment Description:The first paragraph of your application analysis is basically like an intro to an essay. Start by introducing the reading, author, and summarize the reading (eg. In Homi Bhabhas Location of Culture, Bhabha proposes/describes/analyzes/argues ). All summary and paraphrasing should be in your own words. Be sure to identify the different and specific elements of the reading that youll draw on to analyze your event or text. Next, identify which real-world event or text youll apply the reading to. Summarize the event or text in a few sentences and identify/explain any specific elements that are crucial to your analysis (like specific historical context, characters, scenes, interactions etc). Conclude by identifying what youll focus on in your analysis. This is loosely like a thesis, but can be more general– its explaining how we can use the reading to understand a particular event or a text.Your next paragraph will summarize, in your own words and in greater detail than the intro, the main idea in the reading that youre making use of. The key here is in your own words. These readings have been written on hundreds of times, so its easy to find other peoples examples of how to explain and simplify them. You can reference and read other summaries of these readings to make sure youre on the right track (thats totally fine), but be sure to cite them if you draw on them in your analysis. Each sentence should be uniquely summarized and paraphrased by you. Summary can include broad examples to help explain more clearly some of the more complex ideas. Note that if you do reference someone elses summary, ensure you draw from a scholarly reader or academic website; there are so many terrible and incorrect interpretations of the concepts out there that will really undercut your work.Your next 3-5 paragraphs will apply the concept to your chosen real-world event/example or a text. Each paragraph should focus on a specific element of the reading. Youll need to quote directly both from the reading and from summaries of your chosen event, or quote from your chosen text. For instance, if you choose a real-world event, you might quote from an article or someones online description of what occurred. If you choose a film as your text, youd quote directly from that. You can apply the reading to three different instances or scenes, apply three elements of the reading to one scene or character in a text, explore how the event shows different sides of the reading..its really up to you how you want to structure these paragraphs.Youll end with a really brief conclusion that reiterates why this text and concept work together, and explains how the text helps convey elements of the concept.Self-Analysis and Grading. Please include a self-analysis of your work that identifies areas you’re most proud of/confident in and areas that you’re most unsure about/feel like could use additional work.

DescriptionSome reports indicate that a digital divide exists between middle/upper class students and students from low-income families. AND 1.2 What schools can do to help narrow the access gap that could lead to the most underserved students being economically disadvantaged in the future? AND 1.3 As a teacher, how would you integrate technology into your lessons (technology as a tool for effective teaching) and deal with the digital divide issues? (please propose at least three strategies for each and elaborate on them) [A good question to reflect upon during pandemic]1.2. What do you think about the notion of cultural literacy (what every American needs to know) or foundational knowledge for public school students proposed by E.D. Hirsch and elaborate on your response? AND 2.1 There were a huge influx of immigrant children (most of them are ELL students) into the school district, what would you suggest (in general) we need to do in educating all students required by the state? (please propose at least three strategies and elaborate on them)3. What approaches would you propose to your future educational policy makers (state/district level) to de-segregate our schools and to promote the communications among parents, teachers, and community. (please propose at least three strategies and elaborate on them)In a large, inner city neighborhood, an elementary/middle school principal faced a serious problem. Her teachers had implemented a variety of assessments including performances, portfolios, presentations, projects, research papers, and so on. Students seemed to respond well to these different measures, and grades went up. Parents and teachers alike were pleased with these assessment efforts until the district-wide standardized test results were published. Surprisingly, the scores for students in grades four through eight stayed the same. There was little improvement in the reported scores compared with scored from the prior year. Because the inner-city school scored lower than the district average, it was placed on a watch list. The local papers decried the schools instruction and demanded change.4. What are some of the reasons that could account for the supposed improvement in students grades even though the standardized tests showed little achievement growth?5. What do you think the principal of the school could do in response to the negative publicity? What suggestions would you give to the principal to change the things around?6. What is your response to the statement of teaching to the tests if parents raised the issue? Please elaborate. (Do you believe that teachers and principals should be sanctioned or rewarded on the basis of standardized tests? Why or why not?)7. What would you suggest to the principal in regard to some bullying incidents OR violence incidents happened in the school? A proposal of concrete strategies.
The Mystery BoxThere are several aspects of child development such as physical, cognitive and social emotional development. These are some of the processes involved in the dynamic process of child growth. Using the mystery box positively impacts a childs physical, cognitive and social emotional abilities by supporting their growth and developmental process. add more to the introAbout The Mystery Box no need to use headers in this paperThe mystery box is a significant product in contributing to childrens developmental process. The mystery box helps with reasoning as they engage in activities that require creativity, imagination and human social skills. Children use a mystery box to explore items put there using their senses. It is from sense coordination that children can guess what is in the box. Either alone or with other children, children learn how to identify items by touching, feeling, and then recalling what the items are. This is influential in childrens development of their physical, cognitive and social emotional abilities. The mystery box is easy to use and involves simple activities from which children can identify differences, similarities of items, which is necessary for their growth. need more detailsAge / Target AudienceThe mystery box is an activity that can be adopted across all ages, but it is most suitable for children of twelve years and below. This is because young children use the mystery box to perform activities that coordinate between their senses (Yanuarto, 2017). At around this age children need to explore the world around them. A mystery box is simply designed and fitted with familiar items such that children can identify the items. This is however challenging to use for blind and deaf children within the same age bracket. Overall, it remains beneficial in contributing to child development of children aged twelve and below. need more detailsPhysical developmentThe mystery box significantly contributes to childrens physical development. Physical development is concerned with the childrens growth in size, stress, gross motor skills and fine motor skills (McClelland & Cameron, 2019). As children identify items in the mystery box, they grow in using their physical abilities such as grabbing, releasing, fastening and turning items using their hands. This involves muscle movements necessary for physical development. Thus, as children reach out for items in the mystery box, it impacts on their physical progress. need more detailsCognitive DevelopmentThe mystery box also contributes to a childs cognitive development. This is a vital part of childrens development process. The mystery box allows children to process thoughts, pay attention to detail, grasp memories, link with the environment and become creative. The children can remember how items in the mystery box feel, how they look, how they smell, how they sound and taste. Also, they can memorize the purpose each item serves. As children undergo their sensorimotor, preoperational and concrete operational stages of development between birth and twelve years (Babakr et al., 2019). The mystery box is ideal in helping them maneuver through these stages of cognitive development. need more detailsSocio-Emotional DevelopmentThe mystery box also plays a crucial role in a childs social-emotional development. This is an important aspect in a childs development process. As children grow, they acquire human attachments and learn human interactions (Mendelson et al., 2018). While using the mystery box, children take turns in identifying the items and as such, they learn how to share. Also, their recognition abilities vary and from these, they learn to appreciate differences from an early age. Consequently, this is translated to their interactions with other people in society. Thus, the mystery box helps children grow socially and emotionally.need more detailsRelevant Developmental TheoryVarious schools of thought are used to communicate childrens development but the cognitive developmental theory is the most ideal. This is a school of thought by Jean Piaget that states that people transition through several stages in acquisition of knowledge and making constructive reasoning. According to Piaget. Children move through four stages of mental development to acquire knowledge. Like scientists, children experiment, observe and learn about the world around them, consequently impacting their development. Thus, the cognitive developmental theory is relevant to using the mystery box to support childrens reasoning and development. say more about the theory and how it applies to productConclusionAltogether, the mystery box is both a fun product and quite significant in child development. Using the mystery box, children can easily concentrate, remember and synthesize data. Children improve their abilities to recall, classify items, ask questions and conclude on matters. Society, especially caregivers should embrace the mystery box as a product in childrens development. say more in the conclusion
