The Save the Children Education Program Global Overview. Save the Children is one of the organizations that pioneered child rights activism and has been a global leader in promoting the education of children for more than ninety years. It hasbeen at the forefront in the fight for better treatment of minors. Save the children’s campaigns and programs, have impacted positively on the lives of over 125 million children around the globeover the years. Case Study Site. The Save the Children education program is a major program offered within my current organization. The program aims to be the mouthpiece of the children. It advocates and campaigns for better practices and policies meant to fulfill the child’s rights to education and it ensures that the child’s voice is heard. The program supports the development, implementation and evaluation of educational projects for children, leveraging the knowledge of its implementers to ensure a sustainable impact at scale. The general goal of the Save the Children program within my current organization is to enhance the education of all the children within the program without any form of social, economic or political hindrances. The program not only stresses the need for available and accessibleeducation, but also quality education is insisted. The Save the Children program has five performance objectives. All children, irrespective of their backgrounds, should have the access to proper basic education. The school organization also aims to enable children in emergencies to have access to education as part of a humanitarian response. The organization assists the children affected by natural disasters. According to the program and school organization, the survival rights of children, their health and education is important for youngest school-going children. Quality early child care and development is therefore providedthrough district funding and the support of the Save the Children program. The vulnerable youth (youths between the age of 12 and 25) are supposed to be empowered through education and training. The school organization uses the Save the Children program to help maintain national and global policy changes so that every child can benefit from their fundamental right to good quality education. The Target Group of Save the Children The primary target for the Save the Children program are the children who, for one reason or the other, cannot access a good quality education. The majority of the children in the program are in the communities affected by poverty,conflicts, disasters or some other emergencies. Once in school, the marginalized children often get the weakest educational experience and also have lesser learning facilities, compounding their own disadvantage. Therefore, the school organization targets students who need additional help in Mathematics and English, have behavioral challenges, or are receiving additional educational services. Type of Evaluation: Save the Children Purpose. Program evaluation is described as the schematic application of research to influence evaluative judgments and decisions. It encompasses the collection of information about the characteristics (Posavac, 1997).The purpose of the evaluation in this particular program is: (1) identifying the educational needs that the school organization seeks to satisfy, (2) identifying the student-participantsthat would benefit mostly from the program, (3) identifying the strategic intent of the programin retrospect of the program policy, and (4) in associating what the student-participants values with what they are learning. Once, the purpose of the program are in place the school organization seeks to make sure that the results are forecasted properly to ensure the accuracy of all data and that all actions are aligned between the activities and the results. The assessment of activities and results of this program helps in makingdecisions about the programs worth, increase the effectiveness of the program, and inform judgments about future programming. The objective of evaluation of the Education programs instituted by Save the Children is to guarantee that the children with no access to education gain fromthe program activities and the status quo changes.When an education program activity is developed or implemented in the wrong way, evaluation techniques can be used to detect these errors and put up corrective measures to adjust the activities so that the ultimate goal is achieved. Evaluation needs to be compelling so that a fruitful execution of a program is guaranteed; a considerable measure of diligent work must be placed in by the evaluators undertaking such a task. Overall, the purpose of the program is formative, to determine the corrective measures needed to assist all targeted groups of student-participants in obtained a valuable education. Type &Rationale for Summative Evaluation. Formative assessment or diagnostic testing is a range of formal and informal assessment procedures employed by teachers during the learning process in order to modify teaching and learning activities to improve student attainment (Crooks, 2001). This type of evaluation fits in well with the objectives and goals of the Save the children Program. It also fits nicely with purpose of the evaluation, the nature of the program, the required time –frames, the target of the program and the budget of the evaluation.The education projects are all results-based. Both qualitative and quantitative research is done periodically so that information on how well the organization is doing vis-à-vis their targets. These evaluations can judge the general effectiveness of the program and can determine if the program participants are carrying out their respective roles. This method is also appropriate since the organization has sufficient knowledge, equipment and resources to carry it out to completion. Evaluation Questions The four evaluation questions to be asked are: 1. Is the education program reaching the targeted number of children? 2. Is the education program providing the good quality accessible education for the children? 3. Are there any unexpectedbenefits of the program? 4. Are the activities leading to the proper and accessible education? References Crooks, T. (2001). The validity of formative assessments. British Educational Research Association. Posavac, E.

Also, be sure to maintain your credibility by including in-text citations and a reference list correctly formatted in APA style. Setting: Describe the settings of both pieces and identify how the eras in which they take place—with their distinct societal attitudes and customs—affect the main characters? Characters: “Battle Royal:” Discuss the young man and his grandfather. Why do we never learn the young man’s name? What do the grandfather’s dying words reveal about him? “The Birthmark:” Describe the main characters: Aylmer, Georgiana and Aminadab. What is important to each? Point of View: In which point of view (first- or third-person) is each piece told? If the point of view in “Battle Royal” was changed, would it have made the story more effective, or less so? Symbolism: “Battle Royal:” Analyze the deeper meaning of the following: the “battle royal” itself, the naked blonde, and the young man’s dream at the end of the story. “The Birthmark:” What does Georgiana’s birthmark signify, first to her and then to Aylmer? What does alchemy represent in the story? Themes: What are the main themes/messages of each piece? What, in other words, do you think the authors, Ralph Ellison and Nathaniel Hawthorne, are trying to communicate about life and human nature in their respective stories? Fear: What role does fear play in both pieces? Discrimination: Both stories address physical appearance, specifically one’s skin, and the way people may discriminate against others because of external characteristics they deem inferior. Compare and contrast how discrimination and prejudice are presented in “Battle Royal” and “The Birthmark.” Final Thoughts: Author Tim O’Brien wrote, “That’s what fiction is for. It’s for getting at the truth when the truth isn’t sufficient for the truth.” Talk about how literature might give us “truer” insights into the human experience by appealing to our senses, emotions and empathy. Describe a situation in which you or someone you know may have been discriminated against because of appearance, gender, race or another attribute. What did the experience teach you

Spring 2014 Richard Legum, Ph.D. We began the semester with a discussion of morality of Gun Control. In the aftermath of the mass killing of young children and their teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, gun control advocates once again began a push to have the government ban the ownership of weapons like those used to kill the students and teachers. Before turning to the moral questions up for discussion related to gun control, I think that it would be helpful to clarify some of the facts, so that we can address the moral arguments without getting into the quagmire of debates on facts about firearms and people who use them to commit murders and mass murders. .. Facts About the Attacker and the Weapons Used: Let me recount some relevant facts about the perpetrator, the circumstances surrounding the killings, and weapons employed in this tragic crime to ensure that in our discussion of the morality of gun control we get the facts straight about the weapons that advocates are proposing to control (and not proposing to control): 1. This heinous crime was committed by a 20 year old male, Adam Lanza, who, it is alleged, was suffering from some significant mental issues. 2. The killer had murdered his mother earlier the same day, before perpetrating the mass killing at Sandy Hook Elementary School. 3. The rifle used in the Sandy Hood killing was a. A Bushmaster XM-15-ES2 rifle (an “AR-15” – the civilian model of the M-16 rifle which is the standard weapon used by US army soldiers. Weapons such as this are referred to as assault weapons, as a result of the fact that they are versions of weapons designed for military use that are modified for use by civilians). b. This weapon is not an automatic weapon. An automatic weapon is a weapon that will fire a continuous stream of multiple bullets when the trigger is pulled and held engaged. The weapon is a sem-automatic weapon. Semi-automatic weapons automatically reload after each bullet is fired. Thus, someone can fire bullets rapidly, one after another, simple by pulling the trigger one time after another. This means that someone may fire as many bullets as are held in a magazine one after another, by pulling the trigger as many times as the shooter had bullets in the magazine. Most modern handguns are semi-automatic weapons. In fact, the handguns used in the wild west (sometimes called six shooter for the six bullets that they held in the revilving chamber) were semi-automatic. The limit to the number of bullets that can be fired in a row in a semi-automatic weapon is determined by the number of bullets held in its magazine. Infantry soldiers in the US typically use magazine that hold 20 bullets in their M-16 Assault Rifles. Other armies using the M-16 (e.g., the Israeli Defense Forces) use magazines that hold 30 bullets. 2 Many hinting rifles, which holding their bullets in a magazine, are not semi-automatic. This means that in between shot, a shooter must pull back on a handle referred to as the bolt, after firing one shot and before being able to fire another. Military sniper rifles are often “bolt action” rifles. President Kennedy was killed by an assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, who used a “bold action” hunting rifle. Oswald learned to shoot when serving in the US Marine Corps. c. The AR-15 rifle that Lanza used was legally owned by his mother d. Lanza was carrying two semi-automatic hand guns on his person when he committed the murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The Moral Question of Additional Gun Control The Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings had an emotional effect on the citizens of the United States. Everyone, both gun control advocates and opponents, were saddened by this incident. Gun control advocates, including President Obama, used this tragedy to once again try to convince the US population of the moral need to pass tighter gun control laws. There are a tremendous number of alternatives gun control proposal that range from banning certain weapons, to pre-screening purchasers of weapons, to registering all weapon, and to keeping a national database of gun owners. Trying to deal with all these proposal will get one completely confused, without even beginning to think about the issue of whether any, some, all or none of these proposal ought to be adopted from the moral standpoint. In your second paper, I would like you to address the morality of gun control from the perspective of the theories that we have discussed this semester. In order to frame the question of gun control in a fashion that can be dealt with from a rational moral perspective, I would like you to consider two very specific questions: 1. Is it morally obligatory for the government (in 21st century America) to outlaw the ownership of semi-automatic military style weapons? 2. Is it morally permissible for the government (in 21st century America) to outlaw the ownership of semi-automatic military style weapons? In particular, I would like you to address these two questions with respect to Utilitarianism and Kant’s Categorical Imperative: A. How would a defender of each of these theories answer the above two questions. B. How would you answer these two questions? What reasons can you give for these answers? C. Are you appealing to Utilitarianism or Deontology (both or neither) with respect to your answers these questions? PAPER #2 PHI 7400 – Ethics (Writing Intensive) 3 Richard Legum, Ph.D. D. What does this imply about your about what is the correct moral theory is or seems like? This may seem to you to be an impossible set of questions to answer. However, you do it every day in making moral choices. If you try to figure out the ultimate answer from the start it may very well turn out to be an undoable task. However, I am going to have you work on doable parts of this problem one at a time. When you are done, you will be able to put it all together and discover that you have answered this significant problem. Do NOT think that you need to come up with an answer that you will live with for the rest of your life. You may decide at a later day (two days after the end of the semester or forty years from now) that you did not give the correct answer. You are allowed to change your mind.

Spring 2014 Richard Legum, Ph.D.
We began the semester with a discussion of morality of Gun Control. In the aftermath of the mass
killing of young children and their teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, gun control
advocates once again began a push to have the government ban the ownership of weapons like those
used to kill the students and teachers. Before turning to the moral questions up for discussion related to
gun control, I think that it would be helpful to clarify some of the facts, so that we can address the moral
arguments without getting into the quagmire of debates on facts about firearms and people who use
them to commit murders and mass murders.

..

Facts About the Attacker and the Weapons Used:
Let me recount some relevant facts about the perpetrator, the circumstances surrounding the
killings, and weapons employed in this tragic crime to ensure that in our discussion of the morality of
gun control we get the facts straight about the weapons that advocates are proposing to control (and
not proposing to control):
1. This heinous crime was committed by a 20 year old male, Adam Lanza, who, it is alleged, was
suffering from some significant mental issues.
2. The killer had murdered his mother earlier the same day, before perpetrating the mass killing at
Sandy Hook Elementary School.
3. The rifle used in the Sandy Hood killing was
a. A Bushmaster XM-15-ES2 rifle (an “AR-15” – the civilian model of the M-16 rifle which is the
standard weapon used by US army soldiers. Weapons such as this are referred to as assault
weapons, as a result of the fact that they are versions of weapons designed for military use
that are modified for use by civilians).
b. This weapon is not an automatic weapon. An automatic weapon is a weapon that will fire a
continuous stream of multiple bullets when the trigger is pulled and held engaged. The
weapon is a sem-automatic weapon. Semi-automatic weapons automatically reload after
each bullet is fired. Thus, someone can fire bullets rapidly, one after another, simple by
pulling the trigger one time after another. This means that someone may fire as many
bullets as are held in a magazine one after another, by pulling the trigger as many times as
the shooter had bullets in the magazine.

 

Most modern handguns are semi-automatic weapons. In fact, the handguns used in the
wild west (sometimes called six shooter for the six bullets that they held in the revilving
chamber) were semi-automatic.
The limit to the number of bullets that can be fired in a row in a semi-automatic weapon is
determined by the number of bullets held in its magazine. Infantry soldiers in the US
typically use magazine that hold 20 bullets in their M-16 Assault Rifles. Other armies using
the M-16 (e.g., the Israeli Defense Forces) use magazines that hold 30 bullets.
2
Many hinting rifles, which holding their bullets in a magazine, are not semi-automatic. This
means that in between shot, a shooter must pull back on a handle referred to as the bolt,
after firing one shot and before being able to fire another. Military sniper rifles are often
“bolt action” rifles. President Kennedy was killed by an assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, who
used a “bold action” hunting rifle. Oswald learned to shoot when serving in the US Marine
Corps.
c. The AR-15 rifle that Lanza used was legally owned by his mother
d. Lanza was carrying two semi-automatic hand guns on his person when he committed the
murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The Moral Question of Additional Gun Control

 

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings had an emotional effect on the citizens of the
United States. Everyone, both gun control advocates and opponents, were saddened by this
incident. Gun control advocates, including President Obama, used this tragedy to once again try to
convince the US population of the moral need to pass tighter gun control laws. There are a
tremendous number of alternatives gun control proposal that range from banning certain weapons,
to pre-screening purchasers of weapons, to registering all weapon, and to keeping a national
database of gun owners. Trying to deal with all these proposal will get one completely confused,
without even beginning to think about the issue of whether any, some, all or none of these
proposal ought to be adopted from the moral standpoint.
In your second paper, I would like you to address the morality of gun control from the
perspective of the theories that we have discussed this semester. In order to frame the question of
gun control in a fashion that can be dealt with from a rational moral perspective, I would like you to
consider two very specific questions:
1. Is it morally obligatory for the government (in 21st century America) to outlaw the ownership of
semi-automatic military style weapons?
2. Is it morally permissible for the government (in 21st century America) to outlaw the ownership
of semi-automatic military style weapons?
In particular, I would like you to address these two questions with respect to Utilitarianism
and Kant’s Categorical Imperative:
A. How would a defender of each of these theories answer the above two questions.
B. How would you answer these two questions? What reasons can you give for these
answers?
C. Are you appealing to Utilitarianism or Deontology (both or neither) with respect to
your answers these questions?
PAPER #2
PHI 7400 – Ethics (Writing Intensive) 3 Richard Legum, Ph.D.
D. What does this imply about your about what is the correct moral theory is or seems
like?

 

This may seem to you to be an impossible set of questions to answer. However, you do it
every day in making moral choices. If you try to figure out the ultimate answer from the start it may
very well turn out to be an undoable task. However, I am going to have you work on doable parts of
this problem one at a time. When you are done, you will be able to put it all together and discover
that you have answered this significant problem. Do NOT think that you need to come up with an
answer that you will live with for the rest of your life. You may decide at a later day (two days after
the end of the semester or forty years from now) that you did not give the correct answer. You are
allowed to change your mind. In the meantime, let’s get this assignment done part by part. Play
along with me. You will be able to finish it and do a good job.

You will work individually to identify a contemporary issue or teaching approach in senior science education, and conduct an in-depth analysis of this issue/approach. You are expected to conduct a thorough literature review of your chosen issue/approach and provide a detailed overview of this material in your written report. You are expected to consult a variety of r eference materials, which must include peer-reviewed academic journals in the field of science education. You are then required to provide practical information about how you would integrate your chosen issue/approach in the secondary science classroom. In terms of the lit review, the classroom application piece is not just an afterthought – a coda of a couple of paragraphs to nod in the direction of practice. It’s kind of the point of the whole assessment task: it’s about how the research literature informs practice. It mightn’t be half the length of your assignment, but should be at least a quarter (and I’m cringing even quantifying it, but I know it’s unhelpfully vague otherwise). And, speaking of unhelpfully vague: the classroom application piece should be something I could observe happening if I was sitting in your classroom, rather than a general attitude or disposition on your part. Not “I will pay attention to X…” (since how will anyone know whether you are paying attention, and how will you remember to pay attention when so much else is demanding your attention?) but “I will do (this observable change in practice) Y” (reference at least 12 sources)

You are expected to conduct a thorough literature review of your chosen issue/approach and provide a detailed overview of this material in your written report. You are expected to consult a variety of r eference materials, which must include peer-reviewed academic journals in the field of science education. You are then required to provide practical information about how you would integrate your chosen issue/approach in the secondary science classroom. In terms of the lit review, the classroom application piece is not just an afterthought – a coda of a couple of paragraphs to nod in the direction of practice. It’s kind of the point of the whole assessment task: it’s about how the research literature informs practice. It mightn’t be half the length of your assignment, but should be at least a quarter (and I’m cringing even quantifying it, but I know it’s unhelpfully vague otherwise). And, speaking of unhelpfully vague: the classroom application piece should be something I could observe happening if I was sitting in your classroom, rather than a general attitude or disposition on your part. Not “I will pay attention to X…” (since how will anyone know whether you are paying attention, and how will you remember to pay attention when so much else is demanding your attention?) but “I will do (this observable change in practice) Y” (reference at least 12 sources)

To understand leadership within human services organizations, it is first important to recognize four frameworks that work within human services organizations. The frameworks are structural, human resource, political, and symbolic. The structural framework promotes efficient operations and goal-oriented administration. A leader under this framework may emphasize structure, strategy, and results. The human resource framework promotes human aspects, both individual and group, within an organization. A leader under this framework supports and empowers staff. The political framework emphasizes conflict and differences among organizational members. A leader under this framework attempts to build coalitions and negotiate compromise. Finally, the symbolic framework relates to organizational culture and mission. Leaders under this framework are inspirational and visionary. When organizational issues arise, one or more of these four frameworks may come into play. Leadership styles also correspond to a given framework. For this Application Assignment review the Introduction to “Human Services Administration” video script that is attached. Take note of and select one issue faced by the human services administrator. Consider the cause of the issue you select. Think about which framework relates to it and the leadership style that corresponds to it. Be specific in attributing the issue you observe to the framework and the leadership style that is at work. The assignment (2 1/2 pages): * Identify and briefly describe the issue you selected from the video script. * Explain which conceptual framework(s) applies to the major issue you selected. * Explain one leadership style that corresponds to the framework(s). * Share an insight about how conceptual frameworks account for leadership style in human services organizations. Support your Application Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. You are asked to provide a reference list for all resources, including those in the Learning Resources for this course.

Contemporary Human Services Human services organizations do not operate in a vacuum. Like other nonprofit organizations, there are factors that affect them in a variety of ways. Specifically, political, social, and technological factors influence the way that human services organizations operate. In a rapidly changing society, these factors may play an important role for human services organizations as they attempt to keep pace with changes that affect them. These factors may also pose challenges that are difficult to overcome. For this Discussion, consider factors that pose challenges to human service administrators in carrying out organizational service duties. With these thoughts in mind: Post 1 and a half pages description of two political, social, and/or technological factors that influence contemporary human services organizations and explain how. Then explain how these factors might pose challenges to human services administrators. Be specific. Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.

A site is located on a tributary of the River Mersey and consists of embankments along the banks of the tributary. Significant flood risk exists to a village situated close to the river banks and as such your firm has been commissioned to design the flood defence system. The tributary banks (on which the embankment sits) are in a poor state of repair and as such some movement of the embankment has occurred. The two key aims that must be achieved are: (1) Secure the stability of the embankment. (2) Improve the integrity of the flood defences (new defences have been deemed necessary in this case).

Choosing an Article: For this assignment, you will choose a research article related to an area related to child development and write a paper analyzing the article. The article that you choose must be original research, meaning it should have: · An abstract · An introduction (with review of pertinent literature) · A methods section · A results section · A discussion section After selecting an article, you must critically read the entire article (possibly more than once). In this context, “critical” does not mean to criticize in a negative manner; instead, it means to evaluate or judge the ideas, information, and opinions of a text based on academic standards. You should attempt to understand the topic that you choose in relation to the theories, approaches, and frameworks established in this course, which may require you to read other related texts. Writing a Critique: The body of your paper (3–4 pages) should contain a critical summary and a personal reflection. In the critical summary, you must include the purpose of the study, the study’s hypothesis, the type of research performed, a description of the participants, an explanation of how the research was performed, and the results of the research. As you write your critique, be sure to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the article’s content and structure. Remember, analysis requires you to separate the content and concepts of a text into the main components, and then examine how these components interrelate, connect, and influence each other. In your personal reflection, you should address the following questions: Is the article beneficial to the discipline? Would you recommend it to others? Did the authors achieve their purpose? Was it well written and understandable (structure)? Additionally, your paper should have a title page (1 page) and a reference page (1 page) that cites the article you critiqued. All sections of this paper should adhere to the proper APA format. Technical writing tips: · Keep direct quotations to a minimum (this keeps the format simple and forces the writer to think and analyze). Use formal language—no contractions or informal terms (“a lot,” “thing,” “hyper”). Use past tense to describe all research findings—the events have already happened. Match verbs with nouns and pronouns. Edit carefully for punctuation and grammatical constructions. Christians must be articulate in order to be influential and persuasive.

Part 1: For the document titled “computer history” in this section review the items listed after 1980. Select 5 events that you believe are the most important in the computing history presented, and write 1 paragraph each on why you believe this is so. You will be graded on your reasoning, not on paraphrasing what the document says. If you just repeat what you are reading, you will get very low scores on this section. Part 2: Based on the material presented inn the Concepts Unit A section of the main textbook, choose one technology talked about in the section. Research it, and present a 4-paragraph (minimum) review of what it is, what it does, and why it is interesting or useful. Once more, if you just paraphrase what is on the book or what you find somewhere else, you will not do well in the assignment. The assignment requires research, not just saying what you believe or comes to your mind when you sit down to work on this. Also, realize that “googling” is not the same as “research”. Choose your sources and material wisely; not everything you see on the Internet is credible or worth it.

You have a 6-volt battery (assumed ideal) and a 1.5-volt flashlight bulb, which is known to draw 0.5A when the bulb voltage is 1.5V (see figure below). Design a network of resistors to go between the battery and the bulb to give vs=1.5V when the bulb is connected, yet ensures that vs does not rise above 2V when the bulb is disconnected. There are two schematic diagrams below. Please enter the network of resistors you’ve designed into both diagrams. The top diagram is the model when the bulb is connected; the bottom diagram is the model when the bulb is disconnected. Run a DC analysis on both diagrams to show that the node labeled “A” has a voltage of approximately 1.5/V/ in the top diagram and less than 2/V/ in the bottom diagram. Please submit your results /after/ the DC analyses have been run so that the results of the analyses will also be submitted. Because we will be checking the voltage at node A, you should have an assigned voltage at node A after the DC analysis; otherwise, your submission will be deemed incorrect. Schematic model when bulb is connected: Schematic model when bulb is disconnected /Hint/: use a two-resistor voltage divider to create the voltage for node A. You’ll have two unknowns (R1 and R2) which can be determined by solving the two equations for /vs/ derived from the constraints above: one involving R1, R2 and R bulb where /vs/=1.5, and one involving R1 and R2 where /vs/=2.
