Transcript: Free Verse Background Life in Rural West Virginia The foster care systems is a temporary arrangement, in which an adult(s) take care of a child or children while their birth parents aren't able to care for them. Many people think that the foster care system is where juvenile delinquents end up, but its a place to help children get proper care. Some negatives to foster care, is that their is a lot of emotional, physical abuse that may have occurred so the child may be scared or have behavioral problems due to it. Some positives to foster care are, it gives a hurt child a home and place to live, therefore you are helping a child get proper care and love, Bibliography Foster Care System The people of Rural West Virginia have been isolated from the mainstream of American life. Residents there, use an "Elizabethan" speech, not used in modern day America. Most towns in Rural West Virginia are very poor, so many families don't have proper food and housing. Another affect of the poverty, is there is many fatalities from drug abuse, and suicides. Dangers of Coal Mining Some on-site dangers are, suffocation gas poisoning, roof collapse, and gas explosions Deaths from coal mining are more frequent in less developed parts of the world. Many deaths are caused by the poor air quality from working in the mines. Many coal mining accidents have been caused by the waste coal mining leaves behind. http://www.kyenvironmentalfoundation.org/coal-mining-health-risks.html http://articles.latimes.com/1985-02-10/news/vw-3776_1_speech http://www.adopt.org/what-foster-care http://familyfig.com/article/pros-and-cons-of-foster-care/

Transcript: Free Read PowerPoint Project Judith Rumelt, better known by her pen name Cassandra Clare, is an American author of young adult fiction. Main Characters Summary Prominent literary item Will Herondale-Will has dark hair and ocean blue eyes. Will is rude and cruel because he believes everyone that loves him will die. He believes this because a demon put a 'curse' on him. Tessa Gray- Tessa has blonde hair and grey eyes. She is very witty and enjoys literature. Recommendation of book Setting Jem Carstairs-Jem has silver hair and eyes, due to the drug he was tortured with before his family was killed. He plays the violin and is very kind, caring, and lovable. The most unique thing in Clockwork Angel is that there are supernatural occurrences such as demons, shape shifters, witches, vampires, and werewolves, etc. I definitely recommend Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I recommend this book because it uses great figurative language, such as "The machine walked like a man." Also, "There was a boy standing in front of her. He couldn´t have been much older than she was-seventeen or possibly eighteen. He was dressed in what looked like workman´s clothes-a frayed black jacket, trousers, and tough-looking boots. He wore no waistcoat, and thick leather straps crisscrossed his waist and chest. Attached to the straps were weapons-daggers and folding knives and things that looked like blades of ice. In His left hand-slim and long fingered-was bleeding where she had gashed the back of it with her pitcher. But that wasn´t what made her stare. He had the most beautiful face she had ever seen. Tangled black hair and eyes like blue glass. Elegant cheekbones,and long, thick lashes. He looked like every fictional hero she´d ever conjured up in her head. Tessa Gray goes to London to live with her brother. When she arrives Tessa is captured by twin sisters dubbed 'the Dark Sisters'. She was tortured and forced to use her gift of shape shifting for evil until Will Herondale rescues her. He then takes her to the institute, a place for shadowhunters to be cared for. Tessa meets the residents of the institute, Charlotte Branwell, the head of the institute, Henry Branwell, Charlotte's husband and inventor of a many great inventions, Jessamine Lovelace, girly and against all things shadowhunter, Jem Carstairs, a kind but very ill shadowhunter. Presentation Themes Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare Most unique thing in the book Presentation by Canaan Hall Clockwork Angel takes place in the institute, and the Dark Sister's home. The institute is an old church with very many rooms for passing visitors. The Dark Sister's house is large but sparsly furnished, in Tessa's room there is a bed with restraints, a mirror, and a nightstand with a few books. The themes for Clockwork angel are; you always need friends that you can trust, don't judge someone by their looks you don't know what they are going through, and even someone you wouldn't expect could be the hero. Cassandra Clare One prominent literary item in the book is personification. Personification is used throughout Clockwork Angel, such as "The machine walked like a man." Another example is, "The door creaked with a noise that sounded like a scream."

Pygmalion Background Powerpoint

Transcript: http://blog.oxforddictionaries.com/2013/03/my-fair-lady/ Eliza's accent was rather peculiar and immediately gave away her humble background and upbringing. She spoke "Cockney" dialect of the English language, a dialect which was associated with the suburbs of east London, the East End. Around the time when "Pygmalion" was published the East End of London grew to be associated with poverty and destitute. My fair lady phonetics Author http://www.shmoop.com/pygmalion/title.html Shaw was a very prolific writer, writing over 50 plays in addition to articles, reviews, essays, and pamphlets. His popularity rose in the early 1900s and he started to become a famous, well-respected playwright. In 1925, he was recognized for his work with the Nobel Prize in Literature and he died 25 years later, at the age of 94. http://www.eto-onlinenglish.com/2011/09/what-language-did-eliza-doolittle-speak.html The character of Higgins is said to have been inspired by Henry Sweet (1845–1912), a great phonetician whose works, including his History of English Sounds, Ango-Saxon Reader, and the History of Language, are still staples of the study of Old English and the philology of English. Summary http://www.litcharts.com/lit/pygmalion About the title Pygmalion Background Powerpoint Historical Background Cockney accent Shaw wrote Pygmalion in 1912, but he took its name from something way, way older: an Ancient Greek myth. The most famous of its many versions can be found in the Roman poet Ovid's Metamorphoses. He left behind him a truly massive corpus of work including about 60 plays, 5 novels, 3 volumes of music criticism, 4 volumes of dance and theatrical criticism, and heaps of social commentary, political theory, and voluminous correspondence.

His subject turns out to be the lovely Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn), who agrees to speech lessons to improve her job prospects. Higgins and Eliza clash, then form an unlikely bond -- one that is threatened by an aristocratic suitor (Jeremy Brett). Characters. Eliza Doolittle is the main character in the story. She is first introduced as an unpolished, foul-mouthed flower girl but is transformed into a beautiful woman. Professor Higgins is a linguist who believes he can transform Eliza Doolittle into a duchess in six months. Pygmalion who could find nothing good in women, and, as a result, he resolved to live out his life unmarried. Company Logo

'Gifted Students', http: //youtu.be/LvrBUzTDYTg Linguistic - Using English-based assessments can lead to erroneous conclusions. Cultural - Traditional customs and gender roles differ between groups. Economic - The effects of poverty lead to a focus on survival more than education. Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students in Gifted Education: Recruitment & Retention Issues Do we hold negative, stereotypical, or counterproductive views as defined by Ford and Grantham? WE ARE TEACHERS And We Help To Shape The Students’ Futures! FORGET about IQ- Alternative Assessments 5 Asian American students are NOT! Provide enrichment activities to students who are perceived "not ready" for gifted programs. 5 These students deserve a chance to shine and should be provided with support and opportunities to demonstrate their giftedness. "We suggest that deficit thinking and the use of traditional tests (especially IQ tests) and lack of teacher referral of CLD students for gifted education screening and placement are the primary contributing factors to underrepresentation." Bias 5 C) the burden rests with (or within) the student (e.g., he/she is cognitively inferior or "culturally deprived") Testing & Assessment Issues "The bright and the hungry ... are crucial to our success" Strengths Themes References Terminology 4 Make adjustments to your lessons with special attention to vocabulary acquisition. 1. Background/Bias stop students from being identified 2. Standardized test scores stop referrals 3. Lack of training in cultural diversity as well as gifted education 4. Lack of communication with cultural diverse parents whether intentional or unintentional 5. Policies & procedures that are both indefensible and have a negative impact on CLD students 6. Static definitions & theories of gifted that give little consideration to cultural differences Culturally diverse students are those that may come from different regions and races, social backgrounds, and may also be economically disadvantaged. English may even be their second language. Retention 2, 3 IQ or intelligence quotient is a general assessment of your ability to think and reason. Your IQ score is actually an indication of how you compare in this ability with the majority of people in your age group. A rating of 100, for example, means that, as compared to the majority of other people in your age group, you have a normal rate of intelligence. Most psychologists consider those falling in the range of 95-105 as having a normal or average IQ. Since it is difficult to pinpoint with absolute accuracy, your actual IQ may vary 5 points either way from your test score. In addition, there are many factors that may affect your scoring. If you are tired, ill or distracted, your score may be affected. Finally, there are many abilities which are not measured by IQ testing. For example, IQ does not measure musical talent, manual dexterity, or a variety of other abilities. However, IQ testing does give you an important indication of your ability to think, reason and solve problems. This is critical to your success in life. The IQ Test is comprised of 15 questions. Be sure to view your results at the end of this test. Do not begin until you are instructed to do so. You will have 3 minutes. Good luck! Reasons for Poor Test Performance of CLD students: Raven's Progressive Matrices 5 Become aware of teacher bias. Why do educators serve less Hispanic, Black, and Aboriginal students than White? (A) the burden rests within the test (e.g., test bias); 6 Limitations IQ Test Instructions This is the main reason educators should become more aware of their students who may be underserved and underrepresented. "As of 2002, Asian American students represented 4.42% of students in U.S. schools but 7.64% of those in gifted education" - No clear suggestions as to how to retain students in Gifted education. – Also does not compare states among one another. Ideally: Naglieri Non-Verbal Ability Test & Raven's Progressive Matrices Assess students from the perspective of individual learning styles. Currently: The first step is

Moon Landing Background

Transcript: - There are several pictures of the flag blowing in the wind, but there is no wind on the moon - We really wanted to beat Soviets to the moon, so could it be staged? - The shadows are all facing different directions which could be the cause of several stage lights - If there is no water on the moon, how could footprints be created? - The surface of the moon is dusted with fine grained rock, shouldn't the rocket have put a crater in its surface? - In the pictures there are no stars on the moon, why not? Shouldn't their be stars on the moon? - Flag Theory: The flag waving picture is actually an illusion for the picture. Armstrong put a wire in the end of the flag and waved it before the picture was taken so it would look cool in the photograph. - Star Theory: Have you ever tried to take a picture of the stars at night? They don't show up. The bright light of the moon washed out all the stars in the background. - Shadow Theory: Because the sun was hovering just above the moon and Aldrin and Armstrong were standing on uneven ground, different objects cast shadows in different directions. - Footprint Theory: The dust on the moon is so fine grained that the dust sticks together because of friction, meaning footprints can be created - Crater Theory: Underneath all the moons find grained dust, there is actually a very solid rock interior meaning that most rockets landing would not make a mark. "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" - Neil Armstrong - The moon landing improved our nation in a number of ways. There were several inventions that were inspired by moon landing technology which were ahead of their times just like the rocket parts in Apollo 11. - It gave us dominance in a whole new battle ground. Because we were the first ones to the moon, it gave us an unspoken ownership of the territory called space. - It also arose some questions and uncertainty that stick around even today. Could the moon landing have been faked? Some people think so. - Took place during the cold war - Became urgent when our enemy, Russia, released Sputnik -We wanted to have dominance of space, it was like the next frontier -Micheal Collins, Buzz Aldrin, and Neil Armstrong were the pilots of Apollo 11 -Micheal Collins never actually set foot on the moon, just piloted the ship - Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon - About 1/5 of the worlds population watched the moon landing live (600 million people) Apollo 11 Moon Landing - Running shoes were able to be improved after Apollo 11. Manufacturers of shoes were inspired by the moon boots to make running shoes with more shock absorption, superior stability, and motion control. - The moon suits actually inspired better firefighter uniforms as well. It influenced better light weight breathing equipment. Even today the breathing equipment is still based off of astronauts suits. - Wireless tools were something that were developed off of science from the moon landing. Devices like electric drills and screw drivers were improved in ways such as: they were made cordless and came with the portable charging feature. Continued Conspiracy: Moon landing fake? What is the Significance? Background Inventions Inspired By Apollo 11 There was some problems with the moon landing: - Aldrin broke off a knob that powered the main engine, the the two men fixed it with a felt tipped pen - While landing on the moon, they were aimed at a bunch of rocks versus the smooth surface they wanted to land on, but Armstrong steered them back to safety - They were passing landmarks 3 seconds before scheduled, meaning they were going to land kilometers away from where they planned Conspiracy: Debunked
