How Does This Relate to Me?, Journal Entry help

How Does This Relate to Me?

Prior to beginning this journal entry, read “First Language Acquisition” (pp. 198-204) and “Second Language Learning” (pp. 205-211) in your required text, as well as the required article, “Understanding Reading Anxiety: New Insights from Neuroscience.” It is important for you to have already completed your initial discussion posts before you complete this journal entry.

Part 1: As you were reading this week, what vocabulary was used that was unfamiliar to you or might be to your peers? Identify three to five words from this week’s content and research each word in the context of learning and cognition. Explain, in your own words, what each word means and how it is used in the context of learning and cognition.

Part 2: Based on the week’s discourse and content, you will access the Ashford University Library and research one scholarly article pertaining to “reading comprehension and second language” published within the last ten years. Provide a summary explanation of the findings in the context of your article. What implications should scholars consider based on this information? Support your explanation utilizing your course sources and your researched article.

Part 3: Consider the events from the past week of your life. How does the ability to read and write effectively affect our behaviors, actions, and knowledge development? Describe one personal real-life example of an occurrence that indicates the possible consequences when reading and writing acquisition are not well-developed or when language development creates boundaries, such as educational or employment opportunities. As you share this information, consider and apply the professional standards found in “12.06 Anonymity of Sources”found in the AERA Code of Ethics.

Each journal entry should be 400 to 700 words in length and should establish your understanding of the content, apply appropriate methods of ethical practices, and exhibit appropriate scaffolding of personal experience to the week’s content.


Final Project

For your Final Project, you are asked to provide a task analysis (a step-by-step breakdown of a behavior) for a specific task (e.g., shoe tying, brushing teeth, buying groceries, doing laundry, etc.). Make sure to provide:

1.  A clear step-by-step breakdown of the behaviors that make up this task including any antecedent stimuli or cues, materials needed, setting or environmental stimuli, etc.

2.  Select a specific step from your task analysis list, and describe the target outcome behavior in observable and measurable terms.

3.  Identify how each measurable dimension of behavior might apply to your target outcome behavior (rate, duration, latency, inter-response time), and select a method to record this behavior.

4.  With your target behavior in mind, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using continuous versus sampling techniques (e.g., partial and whole-interval recording, momentary time sampling).

5.  Select an appropriate schedule of observation and recording, given your specific target behavior and the logistics of observing and recording.

6. Discuss in detail how you would assess what step a client is on within your task list. How would you assess mastery of skills in the behavior chain? What methods of functional behavior assessment would you use here and why? Provide a clear justification and explanation for your selection.

7.  Discuss at least three different methods of charting and graphing that you would consider using to present the results of your intervention (e.g., bar chart, line graph, celeration chart, cumulative graph, etc.).

8.  Select and create a data display that effectively presents your mock data visually, including at least one chart or graph. Provide a clear argument as to how your chosen method of charting and/or graphing your data demonstrates parsimony.

9. Discuss how you would interpret the results, and what recommendation you would make regarding the client’s progress.

Lifeskill Activities for Special Children

This week we start in the Lifeskills book.  Weekly there will be items to do from the book that help children acquire life skills and relay proper information.  The ‘to do’ items are included in the files attached.  While some of the work seems very simplistic remember, children don’t know basic information and have to learn how to relay and understand some of the most basic things.  Children that have developmental challenges face an even bigger struggle, often over a longer period of time, to learn these basic items.  So go through them all to put this information in your memory systems so they can be pulled out later on.  Many of these same activities can be done with children to help teach the skills needed.  Games and quizzes are often the means to get these skills and information across so have fun with it. 

Select 3 items for chapter 5. 








Special Considerations in Testing 2

Special Considerations in Testing

Our psychologist, Keith, has been asked to conduct a psychoeducational evaluation on 8-year old Melanie. Melanie’s teacher and parents are concerned because she is having significant difficulty reading and comprehending information. She also has a hard time paying attention and is always talking out in class. She is a sweet girl and gets along well with others, but her challenges are negatively impacting her grades and interrupting the learning of those around her.

As Keith plans his assessment of Melanie’s difficulties, what issues does he need to consider in order to increase the validity of the assessment?

    • Remember to consider Melanie’s age and testing with students who might have special needs.
    • Explain what testing accommodations Keith might need to make given Melanie’s challenges and why.
    • What impact could making accommodations have on standardization and, as a result, interpretation of the results?
    • What test format would best meet Melanie’s needs (e.g., type of test, group vs. individual, etc.)? Why?
    • Reflect on what you have learned about the history of assessment. How might Keith’s decisions differ today compared to the beginnings of psychological assessment?

The U.S. has one of the lowest voter turnout rates, history homework help

The U.S. has one of the lowest voter turnout rates among modern democratic political systems. One study ranks the U.S. 120th on a list of 169 nations compared on voter turnout (Pintor, Gratschew, & Sullivan, 2002). During the last decade, many initiatives have been undertaken to increase voter participation, yet concerns about the possibility of election fraud have also increased. Additionally, some political interests feel threatened by the increase in turnout among some traditionally low-turnout ethnic minorities. Several states have recently passed legislation imposing new registration and identification requirements. This has sparked debate about whether these are tactics intended to suppress turnout or to prevent fraud. Think about the media’s role in the election process and how both mass media and social media can impact the election process.

In your initial post, summarize recent developments in several states enacting voter ID laws. Analyze and describe the pros and cons on both sides of the debate about these laws. Is voter fraud a major problem for our democracy or are some groups trying to make it harder for some segments of society to vote? What impact has the media (mass and social) had in influencing public opinion regarding voter ID laws? Draw your own conclusion about the debate over voter ID laws and justify your conclusions with facts and persuasive reasoning

Fallacies and Biases Discussion

Needs to be about 400 words.

Prepare: Prior to answering this week’s discussion, make sure you have completed the readings and Complete this week’s “The Graduate” and “Buying a Car” scenarios. 

Reflect: As you worked through the scenarios, it probably occurred to you that the arguments you were presented with were likely to be biased.

Write: Complete all of the following with reference to specific concepts from this week’s assigned readings:

  • Include a link or bibliographical information for the source in your discussion post.  
  • Determine the issue that is being discussed and the conclusion that is drawn on that issue.  
  • Explain any biases or fallacies you find in the source and discuss the source of those biases with specific reference to the textbook or other sources on cognitive biases.
  • Identify any rhetorical devices that may be used to influence your perception of the argument.
  • Discuss the credibility of the source of the argument.
