Social and Behavioral Development Opportunities during Whole Group Instruction

Creating Social and Behavioral Development Opportunities during Whole Group Instruction It is important that chosen research-based interventions be tailored specifically to fit the needs of each individual student. As professionals in the field, a critical component of your job will be designing instruction individualized to the behavior and social needs of students with ASD in all learning environments. In particular, whole group instructional settings like “circle time,” can be a challenge in order to differentiate instruction among a group of students who are all developing at different rates. Your job to facilitate language and social development within a whole group setting can be challenging, but manage

The videos below demonstrate whole group instruction of children with ASD and other disabilities. While viewing the whole group instruction video (circle time), focus on the different research-based instructional strategies and interventions you view being used by professionals to guide behavior and social development. In addition, pay attention to the setup of the environment and interaction between peers. Examples of research-based instructional strategies being used in the video clip are Applied Behavior Analysis components such as positive reinforcement, imitation of educator movements during songs, verbal directions, the use of physical prompts from an assistant, verbal and nonverbal communication, visual-based strategies, pictures for communication and requests, and much more. Please review the videos below from an inclusive learning environment during large group circle time: High Scope Preschool. (2009, Feb 6).

Stacie McConnell uses scripted stories and puppets to promote preschoolers language development [Video file] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vy7SeMeGDCM This assignment will give you the opportunity to create language and social development opportunities during whole group instruction. Using the Unit 5 Assignment Template, you will first collect data from a learning environment, and then you will prepare your own lesson plan for whole group instruction. Imagine you are an early childhood professional who has one or more students with ASD included within your preschool learning environment. Since students with ASD typically have deficits in the areas of behavior and social skill development, you will adapt a circle-time lesson plan to fit the specific needs of the children with ASD based on current research. For example, if you are going to prepare a lesson plan for circle time involving a music and movement activity, what kinds of research-based intervention strategies can you use to adapt the lesson to fit the student with ASD? Can you utilize pictures/visuals to guide the student to perform the proper movements to the song? Can you include peers to model appropriate actions for the student to follow? Using the lesson plan template provided, you are going to prepare a lesson for whole group instruction time based on current research. Your whole group lesson (circle time) can be based on any topic but must accommodate the needs of at least one student with ASD in the area of social and behavior skill development. You may choose from music and movement activities, storytime, fingerplays, etc. Once you have chosen your activity, fill in the following information on the lesson plan template. Assignment Guidelines Your Assignment should include the following elements: Title page: Provide your name, section number, and date Body: Complete all parts of the lesson plan template Reference page: Sources in APA format You must include at least three Your full references should be listed alphabetically on the reference page. Use Arial or Times New Roman 12-point font

Privacy 4

Olivia is the CEO for “Freedom Enterprises,” a financial services conglomerate with over 10 billion in assets. Among Freedom’s primary businesses are banking, health insurance and property and casualty insurance. Olivia comes to your office seeking counsel relative to certain events that have transpired over the past few months at Freedom.

Freedom recently fired an employee over an email that was intercepted by Freedom’s Information Security Team. Freedom has a written policy that states that it does not monitor employee email or internet usage. Although all employees are provided with a company email address, the email in question was sent through the employee’s personal Yahoo account to an unidentified third party. The employee accessed his personal email through a company issued laptop via the company’s internet service provider.

The email stated the following:

To: “Mr. X” MrX147852@xmail.com

From: “Alex Young” ayoung963258@yahoo.com

Subject: Information

Hey X, nice meeting with you yesterday. To follow up on our conversation, I have managed to find the information you were requesting:

1. I attached a file listing all policyholders living in New Tudor. The document lists all policyholders by first initial and last name, address, policy number and phone number.

2. I attached a second file, which lists 30,000 Social Security Numbers. As we discussed, we will split the money after you sell them. What did he agree to? $1 per SSN? I can also confirm that on 5/1/2018, Freedom disclosed the attached 30,000 SSNs to “System F Industries.” Our regulators are sniffing around this a bit but I wouldn’t worry about it because our Board of Directors ran it though our outside counsel before signing off on it.

3. Stop worrying! Our Human Resources and Information Security Team is a pretty incompetent group. There is no way they read any emails that employees send. They don’t check to see if we wear our badges. They don’t even have a written information security policy! I have done deals like this many times so don’t be worried, I have everything under control. In fact, many of our employees have a little “side business” going on with all the data we keep. It is obviously very profitable. We need it with the lousy salaries we get here anyway.

4. I was told by Freedom’s Senior Vice President to hack into the IRS’s database and uncover their algorithm for determining which businesses to audit. I just cracked it yesterday and I am sending it to you first. I am sure this will be very valuable on the market. As discussed, we will split the profits once it is sold.

Deficit Spending During the Great Recession

Week 4: Assignment 1 – Deficit Spending Instructions Assignment 1

Instruction

Week 4: Assignment 1 – Deficit Spending Instructions Assignment 1: Deficit Spending During the Great Recession, like any other economic downturns, as unemployment rises, aggregate income declines causing a major decline in tax collections. On the other hand, with the rise in unemployment, spending on safety net programs rise. So, there are not too many good options available to resort the health of the national economy. It will be very difficult to defend cuts in the federal government programs and especially the programs geared to sustain the minimum of the standard of living for the recent “poor.” So, government needs to increase its borrowing. Deficit spending refers to government spending exceeding what it brings in federal income and corporate taxes during a certain period. Deficit spending hence increases government debt. Most economists accept that deficit spending is desirable and necessary as part of countercyclical fiscal policy. In such a case, government increases its borrowing and hence its deficit to compensate for the shortfall in aggregate demand. This is derived from Keynesian economics, and has been the mainstream economics view. Following John Maynard Keynes, many economists recommend deficit spending to moderate or end a recession, especially a severe one. When the economy has high unemployment, an increase in government purchases creates a market for business output, creating income and encouraging increases in consumer spending, which creates further increases in the demand for business output. (This is the multiplier effect). This raises the real gross domestic product (GDP) and the level of employment and lowers the unemployment rate. Government borrowing under such circumstances increases the demand for borrowing and thus pushes interest rates up. Rising interest rates can “crowd out” (discourage) fixed private investment spending, canceling out some of the demand stimulus arising from the deficit Write an essay analyzing the advantages and disadvantages of deficit spending and the effects of federal government borrowing on the economy i.e., the “crowding out” effect.

Introduction: What is deficit spending and how does it work. 2.1. Advantages 2.2. Disadvantages 3. Crowding-out Effect 4. Conclusions: Do you believe that deficit spending helps or hinders short-term and long-term economic growth? 5. References Week 7: Assignment 2 – Demand-side Policies and the Great Recession of 2008 Instructions Assignment 2: Demand-side Policies and the Great Recession of 2008 Macroeconomic analysis deals with the crucial issue of government involvement in the operation of “free market economy.” The Keynesian model suggests that it is the responsibility of the government to help to stabilize the economy. Stabilization policies (demand-side and supply-side policies) are undertaken by the federal government to counteract business cycle fluctuations and prevent high rates of unemployment and inflation. Demand side policies are government attempts to alter aggregate demand (AD) through using fiscal (cutting taxes and increasing government spending) or monetary policy (reducing interest rates). To shift the AD to the right, the government has to increase the government spending (the G-component of AD) causing consumer expenditures (the C-component of AD) to increase. Alternatively the Federal Reserve could cut interest rates reducing the cost of borrowing thereby encouraging consumer spending and investment borrowing. Both policies will lead to an increase in AD.
