Answer preview

Collaboration is only useful when the involved stakeholders are committed to making it effective. In this section, two theories of effective collaboration will be discussed. The first theory is the resource-based theory of collaboration. According to Jiang and Ritchie (2017), collaboration is possible if there are enough resources to facilitate the efforts of various stakeholders. That is, as different stakeholders perform their duties towards the success of the whole organization, they need resources that link them together thorough shared responsibilities. Jiang and Ritchie (2017), explained that resources for productive collaboration are either tangible, like money or intangible,

Cybersecurity College Program

Prepare a two-page report for the president of a small university (chose one that does not have one) detailing the pros and cons of starting a cybersecurity undergraduate or community college program. Recommend how they might find people to teach and work with students.

Answer preview

One of the advantages of starting a cybersecurity community college program is that it will offer students a high quality learning support system. It is because such the facility is usually tax-funded by the public; hence it will provide the necessary equipment and technology for the course. The college should then charge lower tuition costs because tax dollars will primarily pay the degree program resources. Therefore, the course would be cost-effective for the college. Besides, the cybersecurity course will offer knowledge and skills to the students, which will create employment soon due to the marketability of the program (Dampier, 2015). To add on, they will be equipped with cybercrime expertise, thus creating a highly secured system for the college Information Technology.

Professional development workshop

Imagine that your principal has come to you and stated that the district is interested in hosting a professional development workshop for educators to help them broaden their cultural competence, improve their family-teacher relationships, and enhance educational experiences for all students. The district is proposing using the materials from “A Class Divided” and “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” for the workshop. Both of these resources are dated, but are often used in schools to introduce faculty to social justice issues that affect educators.

Your principal has asked you to submit a 500-750 word persuasive essay either in support of or against the use of the material in these resources. In your essay, include specific examples that discuss whether the materials could be used to help individuals broaden their cultural competence, build stronger relationships, and create more relevant educational experiences. If you argue that the materials should not be used, offer reputable alternatives for your principal to consider. Be sure to include links and descriptions of the alternative resources.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

Read “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack,” by McIntosh, located on the DeAnza College website.

Answer preview

White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” is an article written by Peggy McIntosh. In the article, McIntosh canvasses the phenomenon of “white privilege” and how it propagates racism in the United States (McIntosh, 1989). She likens white privilege to male privilege, whereas a white person learns how to ignore aspects of white privilege, just as the men fail to acknowledge the existence of male privilege. White privilege is an asset that can open a lot of doors and solve many problems for white people in America (McIntosh, 1989). The article will add valuable insight into the discourse of racial discrimination within the United States education system. According to McIntosh, most educators are white, and whites are prone to unconscious discrimination as a result of white privilege. By going through the material, educators will realize certain subtle discrimination tendencies they have and work towards eliminating them.

Answer preview

Growing up, I was always surrounded and indoctrinated into Christianity. Doing this helped me recognize the importance of God with regard to healing. Loma Linda University incorporates a faith-based approach in matters of health care. Choosing the school will give me an opportunity to expand my knowledge base with regard to the health care ministry. Diversity amongst the student population and the teaching staff is another feature of Loma Linda University that caught my eye during my college application. The school gets acclaimed for having an ethnic diversity rating above the national average. It occupies the one hundred and fiftieth spot concerning the most diverse learning institutions in the United States. The fact that I born in Iraq makes me part of an ethnic and racial minority group. Such a phenomenon has previously been an encumbrance to my studies, considering I moved into the United States in 2012 to continue with my high school education. There are limited learning opportunities for students with a background akin to mine in the United States.

Early childhood educators

Early childhood educators often face challenging situations in the workplace, and it can sometimes be difficult to know how to proceed. When you encounter a tough situation, the first question you should ask yourself is, “Does this issue concern right and wrong, rights and responsibilities, human welfare, or individuals’ best interests?” If you answer yes to this question, you are facing an ethical issue.

How you respond to an ethical issue depends on whether the issue is an ethical responsibility or an ethical dilemma. Ethical responsibilities are mandates that are clearly spelled out in the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct: they describe what early childhood educators must and must not do. It is important to remember that when you encounter a situation that involves an ethical responsibility, you must follow the Code’s clear directions. Then you can be confident that when you have done the right thing, the Code is there to back you up. You can rely on it to help you explain why you made a difficult or unpopular decision.

When you determine that a situation involves ethics and that it is not a clear-cut responsibility, it is likely to be an ethical dilemma. A dilemma is a situation in which the legitimate needs and interests of two or more individuals or groups are in conflict with one another. Resolving a dilemma forces you to choose between two or more morally justifiable courses of action, each of which has some benefits but also some costs.


Below are two situations. For this discussion, select one of the situations. Address the five questions below, using the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct (Links to an external site.)

  1. Identify the problem and discuss why it involves ethics.
  2. Identify which, if any, of the Code’s Core Values (from page 1) apply to this situation.
  3. The teacher often has conflicting responsibilities. What does she owe to the child, the family, or the center where she works? (In doing an ethical analysis, it can be helpful to summarize the conflicting responsibilities as a choice between alternatives: “Should the teacher do _________ or should she do _________?”)
  4. Look for guidance in the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct. Carefully review its Ideals and Principles, particularly those that apply to responsibilities to children and families. List three relevant items in the Code and indicate how you prioritized their importance.
  5. Based on your review of the Code and using your best professional judgment, describe what you think is the most ethically defensible course of action for the teacher.

Situation 1 – Victor and the princess dress

Victor enjoys playing dress-up in the dramatic play area. He is a quiet and reserved child who usually follows other children’s lead. But when engaging in dramatic play, Victor’s leadership shines as he collaboratively creates scenarios with his classmates. He is particularly adept at playing characters such as firemen, princesses, bumblebees, and moms. One day Mr. Jackson, Victor’s father, who rarely comes to the center, arrives to pick up Victor and sees that he is in a pink princess costume. He curtly tells Marge, Victor’s teacher, that he does not want her to allow Victor to play in the dress-up area in the future. He then orders Victor to change, and they quickly leave. Marge is taken aback by Mr. Jackson’s behavior.

The center is devoted to fostering relationships with all of its families, and Marge has recently made great strides in attracting Victor’s family to potlucks and school workdays. The staff collectively believe that, in addition to building children’s imaginations, dramatic play enhances their social and communication skills and is an integral part of the learning process that gives children opportunities to develop abstract
thinking, literacy, math, and social studies skills.

What should Marge, an ethical teacher, do? How could Marge use the NAEYC Code to guide her thinking and decision making in this situation? (Use the 5-step framework above to formulate your answer.)


Situation 2 – Jane and her milk

Jane, a petite just-turned-3-year-old is new in Kristen’s class. Her father brings her to school each day at breakfast time. As part of the USDA food program, the school serves milk each day at breakfast and lunch. Like a number of children in her class, Jane refuses milk and drinks water instead. Kristen allows children to make this choice. One day Jane’s father tells Kristen that he and his wife do not want her to allow Jane to drink water until she has drunk her milk. Kristen assures them that she will encourage Jane to drink her milk.

At the next meal, Kristen tells Jane that her family wants her to drink milk so she’ll be healthy and grow strong. Jane sobs uncontrollably. Kristen comforts her and allows her to drink water. She tells Jane she will talk to Jane’s father about letting her drink water. Jane’s eyes grow wide and she sobs even harder, saying, “Don’t tell Daddy! Don’t tell Daddy!”

What do you think a good early childhood educator should do? Should Kristen honor the wishes of the family or allow Jane to continue to drink water instead of milk? How could Kristen use the NAEYC Code to guide her thinking and decision making in this situation? (Use the 5-step framework above to formulate your answer.)

all information is stated above please read it carefully thank you

Answer preview

Some NAEYC core values apply to this situation. One of them is the recognition that children and adults thrive when in relationships based on trust and respect (NAEYC, n.d). This applies to the relationship between Jane and her parents. There is a lack of trust in her fear of her father and a lack of respect seen in Jane’s father’s disregard for her preferences. However, trust and respect are seen in Kristen and Jane’s relationship, as the child finds it easy to express herself fully. Another evident core value is the understanding that children are best supported and understood in their families (NAEYC, n.d). Kristen gets a deeper understanding of Jane and uncovers new information about Jane once she has interacted with the family.

Role of education in society

In our previous essays and class discussions, we’ve examined how our personal circumstances (age, race, sex, socioeconomic status, etc.) all affect how we view the world around us. Similarly, the way in which we view the world, which we might generally refer to as our personal ideology, influences how we interact with the world, which in turn changes the world, albeit usually in relatively small ways; thus, our subjective view of reality and objective reality are interactive in nature, each altering the other in sometimes hard to predict ways.

For this module, we have read or will have read Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” (from The Republic), Marx’s The Communist Manifesto, Woolf’s “Shakespeare’s Sister,” and Newman’s The Idea of a University (selected passages). We also will have watched The Matrix in class. Although we can discuss these works in a variety of contexts, each one touches upon the themes of education and indoctrination, either directly or indirectly.


Keeping our readings/discussions from this module and the preceding paragraphs—as well as your own experience as a student—respond to the following prompt:

In a well-developed, argumentative essay, examine the role of education in society. What role does education play in modern society? What distinctions do you draw between education and indoctrination? Does education always include an element of indoctrination? If not, how can one differentiate between the two? Explain.

For this essay, you must cite three of our four core readings from the reality/education modules of the class (Plato, Marx, Woolf, and Newman); in addition, you must use the film The Matrix in a central way, probably as an allegorical representation of education and/or indoctrination.


  • Thesis-driven (explicit thesis statement as the controlling idea for your essay)
  • 4 pages minimum length (works cited page does not count toward this requirement)
  • Argument must feature a close analysis of the required readings/film
  • Correct MLA style throughout, including a complete and correct works cited page
  • Paragraphs organized around your own ideas, with synthesized evidence from our sources
  • 1 outside source from a peer reviewed periodical (likely from one of our databases)

Answer preview

Further, in my view, education has allowed people to unmask their inner strengths and talents. As seen in Woolf’s perspective in her extended essay, “Shakespeare’s Sister,” she discloses how men had the privilege of getting an education. I believe Shakespeare’s career evolved because he was an intelligible playwright and actor. However, in Shakespeare’s society, girls did not have the advantage of getting a formal education. Neither did they have personal freedom as men did of learning grammar, reading, or writing. Hence, Woolf (2267) questions how society would have been like if Shakespeare had a sister called Judith. From this view, I think that it did not matter whether Judith was a sister to a famous playwright since she would have encountered the same experience of being looked down upon as a woman.

Training evaluations are important to determine if the selected training solution was effective and provided the appropriate return on investment.

Discuss as a team the last training program you attended (at work, school, other).

Select one of your team members’ experiences and design a training evaluation form.

Write a 525- to 700-word description of the training program selected by the team.

Provide an explanation of how you would evaluate the training program. The Kirkpatrick Model for the Effectiveness of Training is to be used for the evaluation. There are details on the model below and on the discussion thread,

Steps of Kirkpatrick Model

There are four levels to Kirkpatrick’s Model that look at training effectiveness in different time frames and areas.

Level one – (this is the level you should focus on the most in the week three assignment). This level is done immediately after the conclusion of training and measures the immediate reaction of participants at the conclusion of the training. This is most often done with a survey or interview and should cover the if the learning objectives were met, the learning environment, the instructors performance, the delivery methods used and the content of the course. The survey or interview will give the designer or instructor an opportunity to make quick course adjustments.

Level two – is used to determine if learning occurred during the course. In other words do the participants know or can do more after the course than they could do before? This can be done with a pre and post assessment which should be the same instrument. The pre assessment measures what KSA’s the participants came into the course already having developed. The post assessment measure what they know after the course is completed. The goal is to compare the pre to the post assessment and see progress has been made in the participants KSA’s.

Level three – this step measures if learning is transferred from the training environment and applied in the work place. Training is only effective if it is applied. This is done around two months after the training is completed by observation, a survey or interview. Data can also help in this step.

Level four – The Return on the Investment. This step is done by converting the costs of doing training and the savings or benefits realized from the training. The costs of doing training are compared to the outcomes to determine if the ROI is positive or negative.

All levels must be covered in the assignment.

Include what you are specifically measuring, the time frame, a description of the evaluation form, and how it will appropriately measure the training solution.

Create a one-page training evaluation form that includes questions on all aspects to be measured – learning environment, instructor performance and learning objectives met.

Cite any sources according to APA formatting guidelines.


(The professor messaged this to us, hope it helps)

Start the paper with an opening paragraph that includes a thesis – what the paper will be about. Then describe the training activity that will be evaluated including the learning objectives for the course.

Then evaluate the course by covering all four levels of the Kirkpatrick Model.

Level 1 – immediate reaction to the training by participants

Level 2 – did learning occur by the participants

Level 3 – did what was learned transfer to the work place

Level 4 – measure the return on the investment for doing the training

Final step is to create a level one evaluation form that measures the following areas for effectiveness- were the learning objectives met – Instructor performance – learning environment effectiveness:

Use open ended questions and leave space for participant comments.

Two references are required and must be listed at the end of the paper and in the body of the paper where used.

The bold letters is what I am to work on which is the thesis, introduction to the training activity that will be evaluated, level one of the Kirkpatrick Model, the conclusion and the level one evaluation form. Thank you

Answer preview

I would evaluate the program using the first level of Kirkpatrick’s model, known as a reaction. According to Heydari, Taghva, Amini, and Delavari (2019), the first level model helps solicit opinion during the evaluation of the sexual harassment training program. This level is majorly concerned about the satisfaction of the whole process. The community development organization that I attended, referred to level as the feedback level process. The model effectively analyzes the impact of training and assesses how well the trainees or participants learned and the possibility of improving their learning in the future. The delivery method for training participants was also evaluated to ascertain efficiency. The first level represents a more precise measure of assessing the training program’s effectiveness because it ascertains the participants (Rouse, 2011). This level provides answers on whether the people perceived the training as valuable. It measures the level of people’s engagement, their reaction towards the raining and whether they actively contributed to assess how well the staff received the training. This assessment aims to enable the developer of the training program to make adjustments in the future by including the missing topics.

Imagine that your school’s administrators recently reported disappointing results on the state standardized test.

  • What techniques will you recommend to the grade level team to support children’s automaticity, speed, prosody, and high frequency word knowledge? Provide examples.
  • What are some specific strategies you might use to scaffold reading comprehension? What are some things you are already doing in your classroom that reflect evidence-based practices for teaching comprehension? Explain and provide specific examples to support your response.
  • What are some ways that you would suggest to increase the students’ vocabulary?

Answer preview

According to Panadero, Jonsson, & Strijbos (2016), scaffolding entails the use of different techniques to improve students’ comprehension and greater independence while learning.  Panadero, Jonsson, & Strijbos, (2016) highlight that teachers need to modify texts or assignment and make accommodation such as selecting accessible texts or alternative project.  Some of the strategies that can be used in scaffolding comprehension are as follows.  First, a teacher can pre-teach vocabulary.  In this strategy, a teacher improves the learner’s vocabulary comprehension.  Secondly, teachers can use a pause, ask questions, and review strategy.  In this strategy, a teacher checks student understanding while they are reading a text.  He or she should share a new idea from the reading or discussion.

Terrestrial ecosystems

Describe the effects of temperature, moisture, length of photosynthetic period, and nutrient availability on net primary productivity in terrestrial ecosystems. Give examples in your explanations.

Your response should be at least 200 words in length.

Answer preview

Moisture also has an effect on net primary productivity (Knapp et al., 2014). A decline in the level of precipitation results in NPP going down. On the other hand, increasing precipitation has little impact on net primary productivity. The sun plays a vital role in terrestrial ecosystems by supporting the development and metabolism of the organisms located within this ecosystem. Plants rely on sunlight to produce food through a process called photosynthesis. During this process, plants take in the carbon dioxide emitted by other living things and change it into breathable oxygen (Knapp et al., 2014). The longer plants and other primary producers get exposed to sunlight; the more NPP gets recorded.
