Community Outreach

Community Outreach

Goals for Your Community Outreach For the written component of this assignment, you are going to write an outreach plan that outlines solutions to the problem you identified in your Community Op-Ed piece. Your plan should be detailed, specific, and clear, and it should seek to demonstrate your understanding of how complicated the problem is rather than trying to simplify it. Here’s what to do for the written portion of this assignment: Briefly describe the problem, explain why it is a problem, and who it affects, and how. Identify causes that contribute to different aspects of the problem. (Most problems have more than one cause or are linked to other smaller problems.)Develop individual solutions that would address different aspects of the problem. Describe the actions that would need to be taken to implement each solution, who should perform those actions, and why and how they should. Explain why the solutions you recommend would be effective and how they would improve your community. Address any reasons why people might resist your ideas and explain why they should consider them. Audience, Structure, and Style You chose who the audience should be based upon your community, the problem, and the solutions. Who are the people affected by the problem? Are they your audience? Who is in the best position to help? Are they your audience? Who needs to hear your message? Are they your audience? You decide the structure of your paper. Should you write an essay with paragraphs? Should you include sub-headings or lists? Is there another form that would make sense? Should you include elements from real-world examples? Style refers to your voice, tone, word choices, and mood. What reaction do you want to elicit from readers? Choose a style that matches how you want your audience to feel and respond to your message.

British Literature

British Literature

Expressing yourself succinctly and concisely, choose one of the following topics and write a response of approximately 400-600 words (approximately three-five paragraphs). Use only the primary sources (the literary selections themselves) for your essay. Instead, examine the topic from your own perspective. You may quote, summarize, or paraphrase from the primary sources. A bibliography (such as a Works Cited list) is not required. Please copy your response into the text box. You may use the default font family and font size. Do not send an attachment as it cannot be accessed.-From the Anglo-Saxon “The Dream of the Rood” through Beckett’s waiting for Godot, almost all the literature of Britain has incorporated Christian themes and Biblical references. Using examples from three literary works we’ve studied throughout the various centuries, discuss how authors make use of these themes and references.-Throughout our tour of British literature, we have covered approximately 1200 years of literature from these eight periods. Taking one of your favorite works from one of these periods, analyze why you liked the work and how the work exemplifies the characteristics of British literature which we have studied:Anglo-Saxon14th and 15th Centuries16th Century, 1485-1603Early 17th Century, 1603-1660The Restoration and 18th Century, 1660-1785The Romantics, 1785-1830The Victorians, 1830-1901The 20th Century The exam will be graded on the following criteria: The response directly relates to the writing prompt, and analyzes the literature rather than summarizing the plot. The document demonstrates an understanding of the literature and authors studied. The essay is well-structured with a thesis statement at the end of the introduction, smooth transitions between paragraphs, topic sentences controlling paragraphs, and a clear multi-paragraph introduction-body-conclusion organization. The writing contains specific details, interesting description, and correct and well-chosen diction. The sentences are effectively structured and avoid major grammatical errors.

Roaches

Roaches

THIS IS A CRITICAL THINKING COURSE Directions: Write a brief essay using the following format: Answer the question below. The assignment should be submitted using Microsoft Word with default margins, using 12-point Times New Roman black font, be double-spaced, and be in essay format. Default Margin Formatting: Alignment: Left Outline Level: Body Text Indentation: Left & Right: 0 Special: None By: Leave blank Spacing: Before & After: 0 Line Spacing: Double At: Leave blank Read the following fictitious speech by Dale Gribble. Answer the questions that follow. Speech I am a new homeowner and let me tell you- it is always work! I am a professor of mathematics and statistics and that is how I filter everything. I had a hypothesis about German cockroaches that recently infested my Florida house. I have a hypothesis that I tested. I wondered if every cockroach infesting my house was a German cockroach, or another type of cockroach. I concluded that approximately 70% of the cockroaches that infested my house were German cockroaches. How did I arrive at that conclusion? I consulted the Florida Department of Agriculture and learned that 50% of the cockroaches in Florida are German cockroaches and 70% of the cockroaches found in Pasco County, Florida, (where I live) are German cockroaches as well. I then generalized that nearly all of the cockroaches in Pasco County, Florida, are German Cockroaches. I also counted 10 cockroaches of the tens of thousands infesting my house, and I noted that 7 of the 10 cockroaches were German cockroaches. My cockroach infestation is analogous to the Great Rattle Snake Infestation of 2010. Eastern Diamondback Rattle Snakes infested my subdivision that year. There were 10,000 snakes located and killed- and 9,990 of them were Eastern Diamondback Rattle Snakes. Both infestations were similar and nearly every one of the invaders was of one particular type.Questions:1. Does Dale provide an informal or formal inductive argument? Why?2. Does the sample size that Dale discusses logically lead to his conclusions? Why or why not?3. Are the generalizations that Dale makes accurate based upon the sample size and confidence level? Why or why not?4. Are the analogous arguments that Dale makes accurate based upon the sample size and confidence level? Why or why not?

Client Diagnosis

Client Diagnosis

1. Choose a client from your current field internship or place of employment. Be sure to change the name to protect confidentiality.2. Briefly describe the agency setting and the source and reason for referral.3. Briefly identify your client’s age, living situation, work situation, and family and cultural background. Do not include information that would make your client easy to identify.4. Generate a diagnosis. Please remember that the DSM 5 is a reference manual. Using your understanding of the DSM and the organization of the manual including major classifications of disorders and criteria for determining the “presence” of a particular disorder, consider the whole book potentially useful to your work, including categories we have not yet covered.5. Document your process. For example, which major categories did you consider initially? What key features did your client exhibit that suggested a particular category of disorder? How did you rule in or rule out particular disorders. Do you need additional information to rule in a particular disorder? If so, what information do you need and for what purpose6. Identify and discuss examples of specific criteria involved in the diagnoses you considered that require an evaluative judgment to be made, based on such things as varied understandings of normative behavior, language that is open to interpretation, and a clinical threshold that is represented in non-specific terms. This is the reliability question as it relates to the DSM.7. Using literature available on your selected diagnosis and/or symptom focus (peer reviewed e-journals found in the Touro College DATABASES/LIBRARIES are appropriate but not Wikipedia or other internet sites), identify and briefly discuss two treatment approaches found to be effective either in addressing prominent symptoms displayed by your client or a specific disorder you have ruled in based on DSM 5 criteria. You may not reuse a previous assignment—it is important that you use this part of the paper to broaden and/or deepen your understanding of interventions and their rationale for use in particular circumstances. Please note: While psychopharmacological interventions may be indicated, do not select psychopharmacological interventions for the purpose of this paper. Select interventions a social worker might employ. You may use articles from the course bibliography if appropriate to your topic. Be sure to document your sources using APA publication style for your in-text citations and reference list. Here’s a summary of the case: S.I is a new student (freshman) at Forest Hills high school. S.I migrated from Uzbekistan to the United States as a child, and now she is 14 years old. She comes from a Christian home and has enrolled in Forest Hill as a freshman. Lives with booth parents and siblings. Due to COVID -19 pandemic, the high school was forced to conduct learning remotely. However, some students like S.I had not gotten the hang of virtual learning. She was referred to C.A.S.E (also known as Common Point Queens—an organization within the school that advocates for students and helps students enrolled in the high school program) by the attendance department. S.I was put on my caseload in December (3 months post-school starting). By that point, the student was extremely demotivated and stopped attending school completely. The student wants to attend physical learning because she thinks she does better academically when she is in the actual building. She had been severely bullied but her classmates who were of her own race but Muslim. Students arrived at her home to start physical altercations, her father’s car was vandalized by getting egged. Students had created memes of her while she was on zoom in class and posting them online. She eventually started joining classes but asked her teachers to keep the camera off. A report was made about the incident to the school. Therefore she struggles to go outside and see friends. As a result, the family has decided to allow her to spend a year in Uzbekistan and continue her studies there if she likes it when they will fly there in July.
