Gender Norms Blake Term Paper

… They all agreed with my statement and they also looked at me differently. The sense I got was that they were looking at me as if seeing that I really had something to offer for the first time. I sensed that they considered my voicing of opinion a sign of strength and something that deserved recognition. This was not actually stated, but after the meeting I continued to have the feeling that people believed I had more to offer than before.

The reactions to my norm-breaking behaviour actually gave me a greater sense of pride. I felt like I had done something good and like I deserved the respect I seemed to be getting from people. The main feeling was a sense that I was…. [read more]

Childhood Poets of the Eighteenth Essay

… Instead, Yeats hopes that she will be beautiful without being vain, intelligent but kind, and, somewhat problematically, unopinionated (Yeats 160-161). Here, Yeats is demonstrating that while his opinion of children has evolved somewhat such that he is not wishing to live vicariously through them, or use them to validate his own career, he does still have a notably regressive view of women, wishing for his daughter to "think opinions are accursed" (Yeats 161). In this sense Yeats is still somewhat patriarchal, but in an evolved, adapted manner, one that does not rely on reiterating the explicit power of the father but instead creates certain requirements for the daughter due to her gender and sex.

Nevertheless, Yeats' prayer for his daughter demonstrates the distinct evolution of…. [read more]

Corruption the Relationship Term Paper

… 7 percentage point decline in the ratio of taxes to GDP" (Lambsdorff).

In countries such as those in Central and Eastern Europe or in Latin America, corruption in health care or in education is, in fact, motivated primarily by the low level of wages in these sectors. On one hand, you have a highly qualified workforce (usually, studying to become a doctor takes, in the least, around 10 years, while also being a continuous process. The reasoning is similar for the educational sector), on the other, the level of the wages is either average or below that.

As the industry lacks other motivational factors, this translates into a process that encourages corruption. Following Mrsha's arguments, this does not mean necessarily a deviation from formal duties…. [read more]

Three Cups of Tea Analysis Term Paper

… ¶ … Cups of Tea Analysis

Three Cups of Tea:

study in low and high-context communication; the power of communication to alter the world

Climbing a mountain is a highly individualistic effort. Although many poor communities may live in the Himalayas, mountain-climbing is an expensive sport usually only possible for people living in highly Westernized countries. In 1993, Greg Mortenson failed in his personal attempt to climb K2, a mountain still known as 'the climber's mountain,' a peak that makes scaling Mount Everest look easy. Mortenson's efforts left him in a state of almost total physical ruin and his spirit was also crushed by a sense of having failed in his efforts. He was forced to throw himself upon the mercy of a small mountain…. [read more]

Leadership Styles Among Male Term Paper

… Synthesists do not generally look for compromises, consensus or agreement on the best solution to a problem or situation. They will however look for a solution that will connect and assimilate the random and contradictory views to arrive at a best-fit solution.

Leadership Skills Impact International Education Term Paper

… However, many people do not understand what leadership is and how it applies to the school environment. In their 1997 study of visionary companies, James Collins and Jerry Porras define leaders as people who "displayed high levels of persistence, overcame significant obstacles, attracted dedicated people, influenced groups of people toward the achievement of goals, and played key roles in guiding their companies through crucial episodes in their history."

This definition is very much in line with the definitions currently used for school leaders, although this definition has changed in recent years (Education Week, 2004). Until recent years, most research assumed that leadership did not have to come from the school principal (Riordan, 2003). The realization that improving instruction requires shifts in the behavior of school…. [read more]

What is diversity?

Diversity in the book is defined as either real or perceived differences in people in regard to race, ethnicity, sex, age, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, religion, work and family status, weight and appearance, and other identity-based attributes that affect their interactions and relationships.

Parenting Program for Women in Drug Treatment Thesis

… Parenting Program for Women and Children in Residential Treatment

Addiction is something that has been around for many years, and there have been increasingly new ways of treating it that have been created over the course of much research and study. There are many different forms that addiction takes, and there are many different drugs and substances that someone can become addicted to, even if they are not of the age that most people would think of when they picture people that would start down that particular road. Most individuals think of addicts as primarily young, minority men in their 20s and 30s that rob, steal, and cause other problems in order to get their drugs or alcohol. However, there are also….

Female Aboriginal Survivors of Residential Schools in Canada Term Paper

… Aboriginal Survivors

Female Aboriginal Survivors of Residential Schools in Canada

In 1993, many Native Indian women stood up before a Joint Commission to explain their hurt and despair resulted from their stays at Canadian Residential Schools. More recently the Canadian government asked the Law Commission of Canada (LLC) to investigate child abuse within the schools. The LLC report, "Restoring Dignity: Responding to Child Abuse in Canadian Institutions" was released in 2000. The report dealt with the history, the legacy and the demands for reparations for Native Aboriginal survivors of the residential boarding schools and reparation for the child abuse which took place there.
