Constructivist Learning Theory Students need to be able to learn how to become effective problem solvers. They should be able to identify problems, evaluate those problems and then decipher a way to transfer their learning to those problems in a way that will bring about a solution. If a student is able to perform in a problem solving situation a meaningful learning should then occur because he has constructed an interpretation of how things work using preexisting structured. This is the theory
Focus on Ethics Tuesday, February 15, 2000 Focus on Ethics Can Curb Cheating, Colleges Find Behavior: Academic dishonesty is rampant, but students will respond to higher standards of integrity, a study shows. By KENNETH R. WEISS, Times Education Writer Copyright 2000 Los Angeles Times DAVIS, Calif.--Grappling for ways to halt the spread of plagiarism and other cheating in college, professors often get stuck on the idea that it\'s too late to change students\' behavior by the time they reach coll
Least Restrictive Environment Least Restrictive Environment! Judd O. Fisher Although the ideas and reasons for inclusive education are very noble and can have a positive effect on many disabled students, mandating inclusion for all disabled students denies some the opportunity to appropriately learn in the least restrictive environment (LRE) as required by law. The fight for inclusive education has made enormous gains from when the National Association of Retarded Children was established in 195
Multiple Intelligences Journal Article Review The article that is to be reviewed is "Identification of giftedness in culturally diverse groups" by Wilma Vialle in Gifted Education International, 1999, Vol 13, pp 250 -257. In this article Vialle (1999) recognises the under representation of disadvantaged students in educationally gifted programs. Vialle identifies the disadvantaged students as being children from "...non-English-speaking backgrounds, indigenous children and economically disadvant
scaffolding in education Abstract The World Wide Web is being seen more and more as an effective and above all inexpensive means of delivering courses in the tertiary education sector. It is important however that financial imperatives to not take precedence over educational goals. In the search for an effective approach to Web learning, an re-examination of learning theory is required. This paper examines the three broad philosophies of Behaviourism, Cognitive Theory, and Constructivism and rev
Teaching Touching more lives, affecting the outcome of so many futures a teacher is the epitome of a leader. Just as a leader has his or her own style, their way of motivating their students, also plays an important part in a students success. Spending more time with our children then most parents do, a teacher is fundamental in shaping our children. If they are poor leaders our children suffer. When they shine as leaders our children blossom and the universe is wide open to them. As a teacher i
The easy way out The easy way out Before I started high school, elementary school teachers told me that no one cared about you at the high school. It was a different world and you had to do everything on your own. As I started my first semester, I was working with As and Bs, and great conduct. I learned a lot though. It was true; most teachers really didnt care about their students and followed a lesson plan that had been in repetitive use since the 70s. But that wasnt a problem. I like loo
To Cheat Or Not To Cheat 1.1. Introduction Cheating has seemingly become an everyday phenomenon in exam situations at most of Hungarian universities. Almost every student prepares for the examinations making handy little bits of paper, contemplating on where to sit and, during the exam itself, the most sophisticated even use their mobile phones to surmount the numerous gaps in their knowledge. Day after day in the exam period stories such as the following circulate in the corridors of the School
A men with nada To me, since I am majoring in psychology, I would like to understand and analysis people*s thinking and feelings. It is a difficult knowledge to know what people and why they think since they are from different ages, races and countries. Because Ernest Hemingway, " A Clean, Well-Lighted Place" is dealt with the concept with a young and an old waiter, I like it when they have the conversation about the deaf man in the caf*. Two main characters, a waiter with a wife and an older wa
A Proposal for the further study of great writers A Proposal for the Further Study of Great Writers Dave Vinson ENL 4230 11/20/00 It could be said that the study of Literature and the study of Psychology are a most incompatible mix.

Atwoods The Handmaids Tale A Study of Rebellion Atwood\'s The Handmaid\'s Tale: A Study of Rebellion "Rebels defy the rules of society, risking everything to retain their humanity. If the world Atwood depicts is chilling, if \'God is losing,\' the only hope for optimism is a vision that includes the inevitability of human struggle against the prevailing order." -Joyce Johnson- Margaret Atwood\'s The Handmaid\'s Tale analyzes human nature by presenting an internal conflict in Offred: acceptance o
Bradstreet Feminism As a female in a highly patriarchal society, Anne Bradstreet uses the reverse psychology technique to prove the point of her belief of unfair and unequal treatment of women in her community. Women who wrote stepped outside their appropriate sphere, and those who actually published their work frequently faced social censure. Compounding this social pressure, many women faced crushing workloads and struggled with lack of leisure for writing. Others suffered from an unequal acce
Brave New World4 Brave New World As man has progressed through the ages, there has been, essentially, one purpose. That purpose is to arrive at a utopian society, where everyone is happy, disease is nonexistent, and strife, anger, or sadness are unheard of. Only happiness exists. But when confronted with Aldous Huxley\'s Brave New World, we come to realize that this is not, in fact, what the human soul really craves. In fact, Utopian societies are much worse than those of today. In a utopian soc
Character Construction of Chaucers Troilus and Criseyde Character Construction in Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde Chaucer’s epic poem, Troilus and Criseyde, is not a new tale, but one Chaucer merely expanded upon. One of these expansions that Chaucer’s work has become renowned for is the improvement of the characters. Generally, Chaucer’s characters have more texture, depth, humanity, and subtlety than those of the previous tales. Of the three main figures in the epic poem, Troilus, Criseyde, and
Characterization in Poe Hawthorne and Melville What makes a story different from a tale lies in the authors choice of characterization. When we have little physical detail about the character as is Hawthornes Young Goodman Brown and Poes The Cask of Amontillado the story becomes more of a tale. In a tale, it is possible to remove almost all of the physical detail about the character and still achieve the same effect. If you remove the known detail, what little there is, in Young Goodman
claude gueux Victor Hugo\'s piece depicting the ill-fated criminal Claude Gueux is a portrayal of a common theme that happens in every day life. Gueux was an honest family man that turned bad due to the environmental factors of Paris, these factors made a rational man into an irrational man. This situation is something that makes and breaks thousands every year; they are forced by their surroundings and lack of opportunities to resort to crime. When confronted with famine and hostile conditions,

Culture Many different people have interpreted culture, which has an impact directly on every living human in the world today, and no one has been able to obtain a final, absolute answer. Two of the premier theorists in the field of psychology, Karl Marx and Matthew Arnold, have attempted in this endeavor and have had diverse opinions on this topic. Although both men defined “culture” in different ways, a blend or a “middle route” of the two enables us as readers to grasp a greater knowledge of
Damsels in address Damsels in Address It is clearly evident that many fairy tales of childhood tend to shape the reader. Certain moral codes and ideals are tightly woven into the text of many fairy tales, promoting or denoting a character’s actions. In the Grimm’s fairy tales Cinderella, Brier Rose, and Rapunzel, the heroines of these tales exhibit strong behavioral codes, thus providing opportunity for the young female reader to relate to the damsel, or to model herself to behave in a similar f
dhl David Herbert Lawrence As a twentieth century novelist, essayist, and poet, David Herbert Lawrence brought the subjects of sex, psychology, and religion to the forefront of literature. One of the most widely read novels of the twentieth century, Sons and Lovers, which Lawrence wrote in 1913, produces a sense of Bildungsroman1, where the novelist re-creates his own personal experiences through the protagonist in (Niven 115). Lawrence uses Paul Morel, the protagonist in Sons and Lovers, for th
ethan frome as a psychological novel Ethan Frome as a Psychological Novel When Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote his novel, The Scarlet Letter, he was praised as being the father of the psychological novel. Since the completion of his landmark story, many other authors have taken their work in similar directions, and have tried to reveal human psychology through their writing. Authors have been trying to convey truths about human behavior and explain the human psyche, often unsuccessfully. Edith Wharton
Existentialism Appleget 1 Joseph Appleget Mr. Helle/ IB English 12 10/18/00 The Way We Live Our Lives In our individual routines, each and every one of us strives to be the best that we are capable of being. How peculiar this is; we aim for similar goals, yet the methods we enact are unique. Just as no two people have the same fingerprint, no two have identical theories on how to live life. While some follow religious outlines to aspire to a level of oral excellence, others pursue different appr
Fathers and Sons Nihilism In Turgenov\'s Fathers and Sons Turgenov\'s Fathers and Sons has several characters who hold strong views of the world. Pavel believes that Russia needs structure from such things as institution, religion, and class hierarchy. Madame Odintsov views the world as simple so long as she keeps it systematic and free from interference. This essay will focus on perhaps the most interesting and complex character in Fathers and Sons: Bazarov. Vladimir Nabakov writes that "Turgen

Jack Merridew Jack Merridew "He was tall, thin, and bony, and his hair was red beneay the black cap. His face was crumpled and freckled, and ugly without silliness." A cruel and ugly bully, he early develops a taste for violence. He is a leader of the choir at first, and then of the hunters. His leadership resides in his ability to threaten and frighten those under him. He is always ready for a fight. His victory over Piggy represents the triumph of violence over intellect, as he smashes one of

He is included among the group of South American writers who rose to prominence during the 1960s, a time often referred to as the “boom” of Latin American Literature. In his short stories and novels, Leaf Storm, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Chronicle of a Death Foretold, and The Autumn of the Patriarch, he utilizes his background, and p

Through reading both stories and by doing outside research I learned something interesting. This was that a Freudian theory was named for a few of the scenes in Oedipus the King and that this theory was also connected to Hamlet. This theory is known as the "Oedipus Complex" and when explained can provide a lot of insight

Pree 19th centurey war poetry With reference to poems of my choice show how the war poetry (Pre 20th Century) reflect both the glamour and horror of war. The overall image that the reader can grasp after reading these poems is of a man’s view of what war is and how it affects the human race. Full “of tawdry lace, and glittering arms,” they maybe thinking of seeing. However, after all the glamour and battery smoke, has faded and settled, what is it, that will know face them, will it be “Parading
public relations Public Relations Public relations is the process used by businesses or organizations to present the most favorable image for them to the public. It is the responsibility for public relations professionals to provide carefully crafted information to the target audience about the individual, its goals and accomplishments, and any thing else that may be of public interest. The public relations professional also helps integrate its client’s image in its business strategies and daily
Silence and Suppression in the Reeves Tale Such comments as, “I pray to God his nekke mote to-breke” quickly reveal that the verbal game of “quite” involves much more than a free meal to the Reeve in “The Canterbury Tales” (I 3918). This overreaction, which grabs the attention of the audience and gives it pause, is characteristic of the Reeve’s ostensibly odd behavior, being given to morose speeches followed by violent outbursts, all the while harboring spiteful desires. Anger typifies the Reeve
The Branded Mother and her Throwaway Child The Branded Mother and her Throwaway Child The Scarlet Letter is a story of hypocrisy and punishment. The strict Puritan laws made adultery a sin punishable by death or a life of misery. Although being an unwed mother or an illegitimate child is no longer a crime leading to capitol punishment, the treatment of welfare mothers and their children is similar to the treatment Hester an Pearl received in Hawthorne’s novel. Hester and Pearl are prime examples
The chosen Malter\'s Development in The Chosen One of the most emotional scenes from Chaim Potok\'s The Chosen is when Reuven goes with Danny Saunders to talk to his father. Danny has a great mind and wants to use it to study psychology, not become a Hasidic tzaddik. The two go into Reb Saunders\' study to explain to him what is going to happen, and before Danny can bring it up, his father does. Reb Saunders explains to the two friends that he already known that Reuven is going to go for his smi
The Heavy Bear Who Goes With ME The Heavy Bear Who Goes With Me Alcohol, probably the oldest drug known, has been used since the earliest of societies for celebration, rituals, and other social situations. In the early 1920’s, society viewed alcohol as more of a social problem. The 18th amendment was passed to outlaw the consumption, sale, or trade of alcohol. This action caused much more delinquency, as a result of gangsters, and other organized crimes against the government. Prohibition was ab
The Value of Dreams Dreams are vital to the life of every person. Without dreams, there is nothing to plan or look forward to; therefore, no reason to live. The Younger family in A Raisin In The Sun by Lorraine Hansberry has many dreams for the future that a $10,000 insurance check guarantees them. I also have dreams and hopes for my future, college, a job, and a family are all things that I want to have, some day. Due to Walter Younger’s death, his widow, Lena Younger, receives a $10,000 insura
The War Of The World In the society today, it is very common for one to spend his or her time reading. In those types of readings, science fiction stories are one of the most common readings among many people. Science fiction, unlike any other literature, has very unique characteristics. The definition of science fiction is “fiction dealing principally with the impact of actual or imagined science on society or individuals having a science factor as an essential orienting component.” (Webster’s

Four out of ten people said that they had been the victims of actual or t
What Is Realism W HAT IS REALISM? WAS ITS ARRIVAL GOOD FOR THEATRE? Realism is the movement toward representing reality as it is, in art. Realistic drama is an attempt to portray life on stage, a movement away from the conventional melodramas and sentimental comedies of the 1700s. It is expressed in theatre through the use of symbolism, character development, stage setting and storyline and is exemplified in plays such as Henrik Ibsen\'s A Doll\'s House and Anton Chekhov\'s The Three Sisters.

Till Death Do Us Part Till Death Do Us Part Today, many people believe marriage is almost like dating. Some men and women meet, and before they get to know one another they make the choice to be wed. That is why divorce rate is higher than it has been in history. Divorce is now a popular solution to problems that many American couples have. Most of these problems could easily be avoided if both individuals would communicate with each other. Communication is used to help let opinions about certai
