Pygmalion Background Powerpoint

Transcript: 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 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. 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 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. By, Jose Rios Conclusion in this beloved musical, pompous phonetics professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) is so sure of his abilities that he takes it upon himself to transform a Cockney working-class girl into someone who can pass for a cultured member of high society. 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

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

Transcript: Soil Erosion This process can cause environmental damages 1) Loss of soil fertility by depletion of plant nutrients in topsoil meaning that the land is becoming less suitable for cultivation more desert-like 70% of the world's dry lands used for agriculture are threatened by desertification Water Erosion Eroded soil becomes sediment in nearby surface waters, causing cloudy water / higher turbidity In severe cases, wind can carry away topsoil and can create a dust storm Humans have accelerated natural soil erosion Around 15% of Earth's ice-free land surface is afflicted by all forms of land degradation The area affected by tillage and farming erosion is unknown We can try to prevent soil erosion by: Encourage safer farming Keeping soil saturated can prevent erosion by wind 3) Windbreak / Alley Cropping Favis-Mortlock, David.
