Assignment Help Analysis Of Development Theories

Competent social workers are able to construct a strong foundation upon which to build skills by understanding theories from a variety of disciplines. The disciplines of psychology, education, and sociology offer a number of development theories that can easily be applied to the practice of social work. For this Assignment, consider how a theory from another discipline may shed light on social work practice with children and adolescents.

By Sunday 9/15/19

Submit a 2- to 4-page paper in which you choose a theory of development from another discipline (refer to Erikson, Piaget, Freud etc.). In your analysis, be sure to address how the theory does or does not relate to social work practice. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. USE APA and readings from:

Assignment Help Media And Sexism

Many marketing efforts perpetuate the gender stereotypes that are steeped in our culture. Two examples at attempts to maintain these stereotypes through advertising are the Bic Critsal For Her and the Easy Bake Oven. These two conceivably innocuous items triggered a flood of articles, petitions, and videos, denouncing their perceived underlying messages.

The first controversy that erupted surrounded the Bic Cristal For Her pen. This pen was created and packaged specifically for women to use. Several groups lashed out at Bic, calling their attempt to target women with “lady pens” sexist and demeaning. Its detractors felt the campaign was degrading and fed into stereotypes by highlighting the thin design and the use of pastel colors. The negative press was overwhelming, although the pens have remained on the market.

Consumers also targeted those responsible for marketing the Easy Bake Oven by sending a petition asking its parent company Hasbro to make the ovens in colors other than pink and purple. Thousands of individuals signed the petition asking for alternative oven colors after a teenage girl from New Jersey was angered that her younger brother would have no other option but to use an oven in the colors that are considered stereotypically female. It was argued that the colors supported the stereotypical view that only young girls would want to bake. The signers of the petition felt that young boys who might want to use the toy would be more likely to practice their baking skills if the color of the oven was gender neutral.

Consider these two stories and think about your own reactions to the responses to the advertising and merchandising of these items.

To prepare: View the assigned resources and reflect on your experience with gender.

Agriculture Short Answer

Part 1: List, in bullet point fashion, your top 5 Take-Aways (knowledge that you gained) from this chapter. See the assignment instructions for examples of appropriate Take-Aways.

Part 2: Reflective notes are a “metacognitive” strategy; that is, they help you “think about your thinking.” Metacognition is the mark of a mature learner and helps you remember what you read or watch. Reflection means thinking about what’s important and why, how points connect, what surprises you and why, and what questions you still have.

Below, provide complete and critical thoughts for each of the four questions about Chapter 1.

1. What seemed really important in this chapter and why did it seem important?

ANSWER

2. What did you read that reminded you of something you knew before, or connected up with something else you are learning, and why?

ANSWER

3. What surprised you in this chapter? Why was this surprising for you?

ANSWER

4. What questions do you still have after reading this chapter?

(ALL learners (that’s YOU) MUST include at least 1 question)

ANSWER

FYI

Part 1.develop a list of 5 ‘take-aways’ (as directed in the provided answer document) after reading Chapter 1 in Agriculture and Food Controversies.

Things to know about ‘take-away’ statements:

• ‘Take-Away’s’ are substantial statements that identify important and factual information about Chapter 1.

• Statements should represent information that students find interesting or important in Chapter 1 and does not need to be verbatim (exactly as stated) from the book but can be a summary statement that reflects information. Think college-level thoughts

EXAMPLES:

Example of a poor statement: People cannot eat Dent Corn

Why it is poor – not substantial and definitely not college-level thinking.

Example of an appropriate statement: Dent corn earned its name because of the ‘dent’ at the top of each kernel and cannot be eaten in its raw form by people because the outer layer of the kernel is too thick for the human digestive system.

Why it is appropriate – brings up a couple of points and the statement itself reflects more substantial college-level structure and thinking.

Remember: think completely and critically

ENG 225 Week 4 Discussion 1

Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Discussion

 

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
The   Cinematic Auteur

Review the Modeled Discussion before beginning your post. Auteur theory in film suggests not only that a director is the primary author of a film, but also that the film must be analyzed within the context of the director’s other films. Directors create certain expectations with their films much in the same way authors create certain expectations with their writing.
As you construct your initial post, focus on the importance of auteur theory in film analysis and interpretation.

  • Name a director who you would consider an auteur and explain      your reasoning.
  • Discuss the arguments against auteur theory and provide      examples to support your points.
  • Examine how the auteur theory influences audiences and      critics, using examples from film criticism, film marketing campaigns, and      your own personal experience.

Include the name of the director you identified in the “Subject” line of your discussion. Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly sources, and properly cite any references. By Day 7, respond to at least two of your classmates who named a different director than you. In each response, discuss whether or not you agree with your classmate’s assertion that the director being considered is an auteur, and be sure to provide examples to support your position. Each response should be a minimum of 125 words.
