  • Bottge's ' Reconceptualizing Mathematics Problem Solving For Low Achieving Students' - Summary

    3 pages in length. Learning theories are not merely a collection of arbitrary approaches for acquiring knowledge but rather are well-focused methods for reaching students. People cannot be lumped together as being a single entity when it comes to learning processes; borrowing from such renown scholars as Dewey, Wertheimer and Bruner, Bottge (2001) points out how 'the notion that problems must be engaging for students' (p. 102) is not a new concept. In order to penetrate the limitations inherent to low achieving students where mathematical comprehension is concerned, Bottge (2001) expounds upon the need to incorporate student autonomy and quality of life into the fundamental approach to learning. No additional sources cited.

  • Global Warming And Methane Hydrate

    A 4 page paper. The writer suggests that the exact location and time when global warming began cannot be determined but it does appear to have begun millennia ago, even prior to the industrial revolution. Recent research from drillings in Greenland suggest a new theory for past ice ages and warming trends. Data are reported when available. Both carbon dioxide and methane hydrate cause this greenhouse effect; this is discussed. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Toddler Development

    A 14 page research paper that explores the toddler years in early childhood development. The toddler years, roughly from 18 months to 3-year-olds, constitute a period of rapid social, emotional and cognitive growth in the life of a child. This discussion of childhood development during the toddler years focuses on how various models of personality development offer insight into childhood behavior during this period. Then, this information is applied to observations of specific toddlers, and this is followed by a discussion of implications of psychological theories of development, in regards to toddlers, from a Montessori perspective. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Ehreirch/Serving in Florida

    A 3 page overview of an essay on what it is like to hold down a low-wage job. In her essay "Serving in Florida," Barbara Ehreirch describes what it is like to be on the low end of the socioeconomic ladder, surviving on wages and tips, which collectively equal the minimum wage, while working as a waitress in Florida's food service industry. Ehreirch's experience demonstrates that while management theories and practices regarding white-collar workers may have changed in recent years--becoming more progressive--these humanistic reforms have failed to filter down to pink-collar work, as Ehreirch and her co-workers are treated more like indentured servants or automatons than human beings. No bibliography is provided.

  • Aspects Of Spanking Children

    8 pages in length. Hardly was there a time before society became so politically correct and oversensitive to the aspect of discipline that children were routinely swatted for misbehaving. Whether done with a belt, spatula or by hand, a child who defied established boundaries or spoke out of turn would learn a quick and painful lesson that - in theory - would deter the same misconduct from occurring again. Indeed, some children were either too stubborn or careless and earned subsequent spankings for treading on thin behavioral ice, however, this form of punishment was practically universal in its ability to teach children about wrong and right. Today, however, spanking is listed as corporal punishment and can send a parent or caregiver to jail. The climate of child discipline has become so hot that there is no middle ground where advocates and critics reside; you are either a heathen for laying a hand on your child or you are a spineless parent for failing to control inappropriate behavior. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
