...English 134 24 January 2012 The Man Behind the Camo, by Kelly McBride, is a profile that focuses on the author’s younger brother, Scott, and his experiences with the concept of manhood. McBride goes about this by describing past events like childhood traditions and activities that she shared with Scott, and then providing her own commentary and thoughts on the matter. McBride’s detailed recounting of her personal experiences helps make this piece a well-written profile because it effectively gives the reader insight into Scott’s childhood as well as their relationship as brother and sister. This firsthand source (memories written onto paper) helps the reader to feel as if they were really there, and makes them more aware of what the actual events were like and how they helped McBride come to the conclusions that she did about Scott and masculinity. The author uses both quotes and detailed imagery to portray her brother in this profile, a combination that both appeals to the senses and works very well to describe events. McBride uses quotes to emphasize or confirm the memory that she is currently describing, which helps to lend the reader a hand and give them a real example of the subject while helping to align the author’s train of thought and the story. For example, when McBride is recalling Scott’s first venture into manhood in the form of football she quotes him saying “’All of my friends were doing it that year. Football is just kind of the ‘guy’ thing to......

...People rely on computers each and every day. They play an important role in our day to day life. There are a lot of people that contributed with the developments of computers. One of them is Steve Jobs. He created a company called Apple. He was also known as inventor and innovator. Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 in San Francisco. He was put up for adoption and adopted by Paul Jobs and Clara Jobs. At early age, his parents noticed the he has an exceptional brain. He went to Monta Loma Elementary School. The school officials noticed that he had exceptional test scores and recommended to skip to grades. His parents refused to let him skip two grade levels but agreed to skip one. When he reached high school he was introduced to another whiz kid named Steve Wosnak. They both played a big role in each other’s life. Jobs attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon but later dropped out. He took a few courses here and there, such as calligraphy.

...which means ‘sun’. I love my name. It’s very unique. And it’s the first thing that people notice about me, especially my teachers, classmates and friends. Because they said, it’s difficult to pronounce and it’s unusual. I can say that I am just a simple person who grew up in a simple life. I grew up with my family in Tanza, Cavite, my father’s hometown. We are five in the family and I am the eldest among my two siblings. I am one year older than my brother and my youngest sister is 11 years old. My father is an average employee in a company and my mother is a housewife. Whenever I meet new people, they always doubt about my age. They say that I look younger than my age. I am already 18 years old but they said I look like a high school student. I don’t know if that’s a compliment or an insult because of my petite appearance but I just consider them as compliments (laughs). Sometimes, I feel insulted because they see me as an immature person who only knows how to have fun which is definitely not true. I am a simple type of person. I am not the intellectual type. I am not even intelligent but I am getting the things that I desire and deserve because I patiently work for it. I am really determined and persistent of what I want in life. But of course there are things that are beyond the limitation of my skills and capabilities. I am also sensitive, shallow and emotional. It is very easy to make me happy. I easily get touched with simple surprises and presents.......

...School Profile EDA 575 Grand Canyon University January 15, 2014 Vision Statement Desertaire Elementary School is located in El Paso, Texas in the Ysleta Independent School District. Desertaire Elementary shares the same vision statement as the district. Students recite the vision statement every morning during morning announcements. All students who enroll in our schools will graduate from high school fluent in two or more languages, prepared and inspired to continue their education in a four-year college, university, or institution of higher education so that they become successful citizens in their community. The majority of this vision statement is true; the only part I do not think is factual is that students who graduate from our school are fluent in two or more languages. There are bilingual and monolingual classes at Desertaire Elementary, but students in bilingual classes are exited in 5th grade. Those are the students that are fluent in two or more languages. Community and School Demographics The student population for Ysleta Independent School District as a whole is 167,620. Desertaire Elementary has a student population of 927 students. The majority of students at Desertaire Elementary are Hispanic/latino. There is a high amount of military families that move in and out of the area as well. Some of the programs offered to the community at Desertaire Elementary are Active Parent Volunteer Program (50 members), CATCH (Family Fun Fitness Fridays) Family......

...Process Reflection for Module 2: Unwrapping ISLLC Standard 1 This week’s assignment was very interesting. I had not participated in an unwrapping activity since a workshop I attended in 2004. At the beginning of the exercise I was worried about being a part of an online team. I was especially wary of using the online group forum for coordinating the completion of the group project. I am, by nature, a worrier, but I should not have been stressed. The team quickly responded to my original message, we exchanged numbers, divided the assignment into manageable pieces, and one teammate volunteered to put the assignment together. At first, I was confused with the requirements, but after receiving guidance from the professor, I understood the expectations. Once the parameters of the assignment were agreed upon and set, everyone has met the established deadlines. I view this exercise as basic-training for when I am charged with larger projects as an administrator and I fully expect that the personality conflicts and obstacles to the effective completion of the assignments will be repeated in future projects. The leadership skills acquired as a part of the cooperative learning group will translate and be useful in my future role as an administrator. For the future, I need to trust the established protocols for completing scheduled tasks. Although I am quick to take on leadership responsibilities, I need to resist the urge to reinvent the wheel. I need to......

Its provisions include schools receiving Title I funds must evaluate students annually to demonstrate school’s progress to improving academics. However, opponents argue that provisions provided by this act does not provide enough funding to cover the cost of programs related to enhancing learning in low-income schools (“LeftBehind: Low-Income”, 2008, 591). Despite the failings of the NCLB Act, it still provides assistance to Avery Elementary. Many of the services provided due to the NCLB Act are free and reduced lunch, technological programs, assessments tools, and other support personnel to assist educators. These services in some cases have enabled this school to make some progress towards improving test scores. With the available resources provided, Avery Elementary strives to improve student achievement. Due to the NCLB Act Avery Elementary has made some progress based on the programs, resources, support, and performance; it has made some progress towards achieving higher learning.

The Impact of School-Based Mentoring on Youths with Different Relational Profiles

...Psychology 2011, Vol. 47, No. 2, 450 – 462 © 2010 American Psychological Association 0012-1649/10/$12.00 DOI: 10.1037/a0021379 The Impact of School-Based Mentoring on Youths With Different Relational Profiles Sarah E. O. Schwartz, Jean E. Rhodes, and Christian S. Chan University of Massachusetts Boston Carla Herrera Public/Private Ventures, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Associations between youths’ relationship profiles and mentoring outcomes were explored in the context of a national, randomized study of 1,139 youths (54% female) in geographically diverse Big Brothers Big Sisters school-based mentoring programs. The sample included youths in Grades 4 –9 from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, the majority of whom were receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Latent profile analysis, a person-oriented approach, was used to identify 3 distinct relational profiles. Mentoring was found to have differential effects depending on youths’ preintervention approach to relationships. In particular, youths who, at baseline, had satisfactory, but not particularly strong, relationships benefited more from mentoring than did youths with profiles characterized by either strongly positive or negative relationships. Implications for research and practice are discussed. Keywords: youth mentoring, parent relationships, teacher relationships, latent profile analysis Youth mentoring programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) pair youths with volunteers who are trained to......

He was the most normal kid aside from the ADD making homework a dreadful thing in our house. His social life however was the main reason he went to school, he use to always get yelled at for talking while the teacher was taking.

He was then taken home to there little town house where he was raised until I came along 4 years later and my parents moved to a bigger house, in a cul-de-sac right on top of a hill with a park right at the bottom where all the kids played. Matthew being a very outgoing kid would go play basketball with the kids at the court near the park when he was 10. It wasn’t until that year when my dad got a new job and was relocated to Florida. The move being hard for Matthew being so young and changing new schools where he knew nobody, at first Matthew adjusted well to the move. It wasn’t until high school when Matthew started having problems at school. He was no longer even trying in school; to him hanging out with his new “friends” was more important. He started coming in late for curfew and not just a couple of minutes, hours and sometimes not at all. My parents just kept trying to figure out what was wrong and kept punishing him.
