Let’s Learn about Graphic Organizers

This assignment will help you learn more about graphic organizers (GOs).  Using the required review resources below, you are to write the prompts and then respond to them in complete sentences in a Word document.

  1. Describe a graphic organizer in your own words and the rationale or purpose(s) for its use 
  2. List and describe at least three benefits of using graphic organizers.
  3. List and briefly three different types of graphic organizers from the resources below and briefly describe a specific concept you could teach using that style of the graphic organizer. For example, I might use a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast two different characters in a story. 
  4. Review the four graphic organizers created on the Popplet program by students in another class. Then briefly describe at least three features of the GO’s designs that help make them more helpful for students to learn the concepts and why they help.

Good News Zain

Good News Zain

This week you will also be writing both good and bad news, but this time both messages will be addressed to individuals outside of the organization. When writing good news, remember to use the direct approach; however, when writing bad news, use the indirect approach.  A single upload is fine, as long as each letter starts on a new page. You are welcomed to use the attached template, or you may use a different template. After your assignment is uploaded, please click on “View Feedback” to verify that the formatting was not altered. If necessary, please correct and resubmit. Similarity scores must be 25% or less. If similarity score exceeds 25%, revise and resubmit by the due date. Remember to adhere to formatting guidelines, including margins and spacing (please refer to sample formatted letter

).

Guidelines:

  • Use Times Roman Numeral, Courier New, or Arial.
  • Left justify letter and use 1-inch margin.
  • Use correct headings (must be single-spaced):
    • Sender’s address
    • Date
    • Recipient’s address
  • Letter must be single-spaced; leave a space between each paragraph.
  • Do not indent paragraphs.
  • Reference your sourcesLinks to an external site.
  • Include complimentary close and signature block. You’re welcome to use the existing signature in the sample formatted letter.

Scenario (Good News):

Zain Martin recently interviewed with your company for a position as a securities analyst. You have good news to share with her. The company offered Zain a job with the hope of getting her in for orientation in five weeks. Your task is to write to Zain and offer her the position.

Scenario (Bad News):

You are a real estate professional who has a national reputation as a real estate expert. You were contacted recently via letter, inquiring about your ability and willingness to be the keynote speaker at a national real estate conference in Atlanta on August 12. You are flattered with the invitation and the size of the honorarium you would receive. However, you are unable to accept due to previous commitments. Your task is to write a letter to the conference host informing her of your decision. In your letter, consider sharing the names of other real estate experts who might be available and/or the possibility of videotaping your talk for the presentation.

Clarity Use Clear

By this point in the semester you should have a pretty firm handle on your Long Report situation. Your email will provide an update on your Long Report progress, and give us both a pretty clear indication where you are in the process.

In your email, you will address the following:

Thesis

You provided a “working” thesis in your topic email. Now, discuss any alterations you’ve made, or may need to make, as the process moves forward. For example, have you found a way to narrow your thesis’ scope, or will it be revised in a more persuasive direction?

Audience

You indicated a potential audience for your report in the topic email. Indicate whether your audience has changed since then. If so, explain how, and if your research has played a role in that process.

Research

Describe any previous research you’ve done that might be utilized in your report, research you’ve done since you received topic approval, and research you’re planning to do (what are the “gaps” you need to fill through research to write a quality report?).

Drafting

Provide some indication of how much writing you’ve actually done on the report to this point. Also, be honest. There’s no penalty for being a procrastinator as long as the job gets done.

Your email will reflect consideration of the guidelines provided on pages 100-03. Pay special attention to the following:

  • Tone— in this instance, I am your audience, and your tone/word choice should reflect that.
  • Clarity— use clear, concrete language; identify and resolve typos and other errors; keep paragraphs to a reasonable (3-to-4 lines) length.
  • Brevity— say what you need to say in order to address the objectives listed above, but do so with an economy of language.
  • Format— include a clear subject, salutation, ending paragraph, and complimentary close.

Because we typically don’t have the luxury of having others proofread our emails, you will be expected to be your own editor, and your email should be free of obvious errors/typos.

Least Five Questions Correctly

Least Five Questions Correctly

Powerpoint based on hypertension.

Develop an educational plan for individuals with high blood pressure which will help them monitor their blood pressure and maintain a healthy diet low in salt.

  

To develop the Goals and Objectives for the Community Teaching project follows the following steps:

1. Analyze the problem or the issue

2. Find out what is causing concern, and break the issue down into its components “Patients with Diabetes.”

3. Identified the Stakeholders (‘key players’ or main stakeholders and invite them to be part of the project) “Talk to the Diabetes educator”

4. Know your target group (a group, for example, adolescents with Type I DM)

5. Understand the characteristics of your target group “recently diagnosed diabetes patient” “Pre-menopausal women at risk for diabetes.”

6. Determine the goals and objectives

7. Determine the result you want from your community education project. Define this in terms of a goal, educational objectives, and desired outcomes

8. The goal or aim of your project is a broad statement of what you want to achieve.

  

Objectives 

Define your educational objectives in terms of the knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and practices you want the target group to adopt to achieve the goal.

Educational objectives:

At the end of the project, participants will: 

1. verbalize increased knowledge and understanding of the diabetes disease process.  

2. be able to identify the signs and symptoms of hyper and hypoglycemia.

3. be able to identify solutions to the environmental impacts

4. develop an appreciation for glycemic diet and the importance of monitoring blood glucose.

5.  use of the American Diabetes Association guidelines for blood glucose control.

Design your educational project (based on evidence)

1. Make an action plan and implement it

2. Evaluate the objectives by testing or surveying the knowledge and attitudes of the participants concerning the purposes.

Consider This:

SMART:

1. Specific: Clearly state the issue, the target group, the time and place of the activity.

2. Measurable: Be clear in the objective of what will be changed and by how much. Setting this clearly at the start makes it easier to evaluate: Example of a measurable goal “within the next six weeks, I will develop a health literacy program for at-risk of amputation diabetic patients in the community. I will survey at the end of the program, 80% of participants will answer at least five questions correctly in the survey.”

3. Achievable: Be realistic about what the project achieves in terms of the scale/scope of what is being done, time, and resources available. 

4. Relevant: Objectives need to relate to and be relevant to the goals. Remember objectives are the building blocks/steps toward meeting the goals

5. Time Specific: Be clear in the objectives about the timeframe in which the program/activities, as well as expected changes, will take place

Remember that the rest of the course will be used to accomplish your goal by having a clear goal.

1. Goal statements “identify” the specific target group and provide the “what” information as distinct from the “how” the goal will be achieved or when it will come about. 

2. Objectives are the building blocks or steps towards achieving a program’s goals. Objectives are specific and concise statements that state who will make what change, by how much, where, and by when.

States the result (change)

Specifies the degree of change in measurable terms (degree)

Issues May Run Much

Issues May Run Much

 

Discussion: Workplace Environment Assessment

How healthy is your workplace?

You may think your current organization operates seamlessly, or you may feel it has many issues. You may experience or even observe things that give you pause. Yet, much as you wouldn’t try to determine the health of a patient through mere observation, you should not attempt to gauge the health of your work environment based on observation and opinion. Often, there are issues you perceive as problems that others do not; similarly, issues may run much deeper than leadership recognizes.

There are many factors and measures that may impact organizational health. Among these is civility. While an organization can institute policies designed to promote such things as civility, how can it be sure these are managed effectively? In this Discussion, you will examine the use of tools in measuring workplace civility.

To Prepare:

  • Review the Resources and examine the Clark Healthy Workplace Inventory, found on page 20 of Clark (2015).
  • Review and complete the Work Environment Assessment Template in the Resources.
By Day 3 of Week 7

Post a brief description of the results of your Work Environment Assessment. Based on the results, how civil is your workplace? Explain why your workplace is or is not civil. Then, describe a situation where you have experienced incivility in the workplace. How was this addressed? Be specific and provide examples.

View the two videos linked below then answer the discussion question provided.

From the timeline, you are aware that in the 1960s it was decided that the mentally ill should be provided care/ treat in their communities. This video will explain this process in greater detail.

Deinstitutionalization Movement

This is another segment of the same movie, explaining how communities in the different states were unable to meet client needs. As a result, many became homeless at that time, and many with a mental health disorder are homeless today.
