Holly Windram Solution Tree Press ePub

Problem solving refers to the systematic approach used to conceptualize a problem situation and identify needs, analyze factors contributing to the problem situation, design strategies to meet those needs, and implement and evaluate the strategies.

—Sarah J. Allen & Janet L. Graden

Advance Organizer

  When collecting systemwide screening data, target a few important outcomes.

  Tier 1 teams can stay in the driver’s seat by considering reasons for problems over which you have control.

  Designing a systems level plan will advantageously position your building to meet its goal.

  Drift happens to the best of us: teams must continually work at implementation integrity.

  Celebrate all growth, and always keep working at it.

The problem-solving process introduced in chapter 2 is used as the basis of our work at all tiers within a schoolwide RTI framework, with increasing intensity and specificity for each tier. There are many varieties of problem-solving models, each having anywhere from four to twelve steps. Basically, they all accomplish the same thing, with different ways of dividing the tasks or thought processes.

On the Trail of Don Quixote

Lonely Planet Lonely Planet ePub

Few literary landscapes have come to define an actual terrain quite like the La Mancha portrayed in Miguel de Cervantes's El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha, better known as El Quijote (in Spanish) or Don Quixote (in English).

'In a village in La Mancha whose name I cannot recall, there lived long ago a country gentleman…'. Thus begins the novel and thus it was that the village where our picaresque hero began his journey had always remained a mystery. That was, at least, until 10 eminent Spanish academics marked the 400th anniversary of the book's publication in 1605 by carefully following the clues left by Cervantes. Their conclusion? That Villanueva de los Infantes (population 5581) in Castilla-La Mancha's far south was Don Quixote's starting point. These days, the town is otherwise most memorable for its ochre-hued Plaza Mayor, surrounded by wood-and-stone balconies and watched over by the 15th-century Iglesia de San Andrés. If you're staying overnight, look no further than La Morada de Juan de Vargas (%926 36 17 69; www.lamoradadevargas.com; Calle Cervantes 3; d €50-75; aW).

Software application security risk is of critical importance to modern enterprises and organizations. The very existence of these entities often depends on the successful and secure operation of mission critical applications such as the outer space explorations and high assurance scenarios regarding the surgery table for one striking example.

Software application security risk is concerned primarily with how security personnel, facility managers, network personnel, management, and other interested parties rate their experience with the various aspects of software security risk, and overall management and maintenance, including issues such as continuity or availability of service, security design and configuration to name a few. To address this need, the principal author has built the fundamental (probability and gametheory related) computational aspects and an associated automated software tool for quantitative risk management. This tool, the

8. Recent Trends in Affect Theories in Psychology

Stein, Ruth Karnac Books ePub

This chapter deals with theories of emotion in psychology. My approach here is different from the one I have chosen toward psychoanalytic theories. The reasons for this difference are two: the first has to do with my unequal interest in the two areas, and the second results from the different character of the theories in each. As the main interest of this book lies in psychoanalysis, the treatment of psychoanalytic theories of affect has been understandably more expanded and explicatory. Psychological theories of emotion serve in this framework mainly as indicators of the directions of thought and types of concepts obtaining today in this adjacent field.1

Another point is the different structure of psychoanalytic and psychological theories. Roughly speaking, psychoanalytic theories seem to be in the nature of general, holistic models of mental functioning, whereas psychological theories are based on a more circumscribed view of systems and their functions. To put affect theories in psychoanalysis in an understandable form, one needs to outline the whole, or at least a great part, of the theoretical web surrounding a particular theory. By contrast, in psychology, for historical and for other reasons (e.g., criteria of acceptability of research paradigms), there have always existed rather partitioned areas of investigation and of theorizing; learning, perception, motivation, and, recently, emotion refer to separate realms of knowledge and theory, and each is considered a different domain for investigation.

3 The Welfare Effects of PCBs in the Ocean

Butterworth, A. CABI PDF


The Welfare Effects of PCBs in the Ocean

Mark Peter Simmonds

3.1 Introduction

One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds. Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen. An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of science are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise.

(Aldo Leopold from his essay ‘The Round River:

A Parable’ (c.1940–1948); Leopold, 1993)

In the world of animal issues, and perhaps especially at an international level, animal welfare lags far behind conservation in terms of interest and investment of time and money. Yet how we treat the other living, feeling and sentient animals around us is clearly a mark of our own humanity. The way

I look at it is that, even if the world ends tomorrow, at least we should feel that we have tried to make sure that those non-human beings around us have had lives as free from unnecessary pain and other suffering as possible.

6. Madness, Madness Everywhere

June Skinner Sawyers Roaring Forties Press PDF

American South and, going further back, in Scotland and England.

Bootleg versions turned up over and over again while such artists as

Peter, Paul, and Mary, the Byrds, and Manfred Mann covered much of Dylan’s original material and, in the case of Manfred Mann’s “The

Mighty Quinn,” took it to the top of the charts.

Dylan assumed the role of the reclusive hermit, playing and creating music and reading the Bible and the works of William

Blake, far removed from the troubles of the world. Ever the contrarian, Dylan continued to do the opposite of what was expected from him. He had had it “with the whole scene.” Instead, he savored the timelessness of the countryside to work on a project that tried to recapture a lost, bucolic past. He eschewed a fancy, modern studio in favor of the basement of the rambling Big Pink. Like the Basement

Tapes, which were recorded in 1967 but not released until 1975, the acoustic-based John Wesley Harding, released in January 1968, recalls an older America, consisting of country- and folk-tinged songs rich in biblical overtones. As the rest of the country was getting turned on, Dylan was returning to the basics.

Effects of Cohorts on Learners

JOURNAL OF SCHOOL LEADERSHIP Rowman & Littlefield Publishers ePub



ABSTRACT: Cohorts are increasingly popular management tools for recruiting students into professional education programs, for organizing their learning experiences, for promoting performance-based outcomes, and for developing and using innovative teaching–learning practices. This article examines issues about the effects of learning in cohorts by focusing on existing research and posing rhetorical questions about what happens both inside and outside cohorts. The purpose of the article is to stimulate dialogue about the impact of cohort participation on learning outcomes, professorial roles, and professional practice. The authors pose a series of unanswered questions about learning in cohorts as a beginning strategy for developing a nationwide longitudinal study to explore transference of learning in cohorts by aspiring school administrators to their professional practice.

Over the past decade, many university-based administrator-preparation programs have evolved into coherent, sequenced curriculums delivered to groups of 20 to 25 students called cohorts (Barnett, Basom, Yerkes, & Norris, 2000; Kelley & Peterson, 2000). A premise for using cohorts is that keeping students together as a unique group of learners enhances professional learning and skill development (Norris & Barnett, 1994; Peel, Wallace, Buckner, Wrenn, & Evans, 1998). Another assertion is that the cohort structure provides excellent opportunities for aspiring school leaders to learn and practice skills in collective goal setting, community building, conflict resolution, and culture management (Geitner, 1994; Milstein & Krueger, 1997). Findings suggest that cohorts have a positive impact on student learning and performance. Thus, the cohort model of instructional delivery in educational leadership preparation is often highly recommended (Milstein & Krueger, 1997; Murphy, 1993, 2002).

Concerning Imagination (III)

Concerning Imagination (III)

It is reality, it must be stressed,

And not its opposite.

We place its aura over everything

By our power make it fit

A tiny mood, great art, a way to sing,

It’s more than to exist.

Wallace Stevens made each poem he wrote

Show differences between

Imagination and reality.

And yet for everyone,

By casting his own glow he showed how we

All somehow have brought

The two together. All we imagine is

A bonus to all things.

We heighten every exploit that we know.

Imagining means wings

Which lift the usual, give it light, and so

Our purpose here is this.


The doctor talks. The students gather round.

I’m opposite this patient in a bed

Close enough to hear each separate sound.

I heard each syllable the doctor said

But I am carefully bound

To seeming not to listen. Doctor goes,

Students chat and smile and disappear.

That patient opposite is wrapped in fear,

She turns and pulls her sheets and blanket close.

I am so far though near.

The patient’s name is Milly. Now and then

We’ve talked of trivial things. We’ve never said

Chapter Twelve: Black and White: Vulnerability or a Sign of Power?

Lokis-Adkins, Julie Karnac Books ePub


Black and white: vulnerability or a sign of power?

Unlike the heroines of Monsieur Vénus and La Marquise de Sade, Eliante Donalger, the heroine of La Jongleuse (1990), is a widow at the beginning of the text. Eliante Donalger is a symbol of the sexual anarchy that was associated with a woman living outside the traditional patriarchal household. With theories on female hysteria emerging towards the end of the nineteenth century, single women in particular (widows being included in this category) were believed to be particularly at risk of developing hysterical tendencies. By portraying her heroine as a widow from the beginning of the text, Rachilde again raises questions pertaining to the fin-de-siècle male fear that single women were dangerous and potentially destructive creatures; in the case of La Jongleuse, this female potential is shown from the start of the novel.

Showalter (1991) asserts that sexual anarchy in the nineteenth century began with the “odd woman”; the woman who would not marry and who refused her reproductive duties. Rachilde's novel portrays the type of “odd woman” defined by Showalter, although, in the case of La Jongleuse, the heroine uses her widowed status as a justification for her rejection of these female duties. The central protagonist of La Jongleuse, a young widow of thirty-five, rejects the idea of remarriage and is completely opposed to the feminine duty of maternity. This femme nouvelle emerged as the feminist wave swept through France from 1889 to 1900. This movement gave rise to a generation of self-consciously styled “new women”; young women whose declarations of independence and advocacy of free union spurred what was popularly known as the “marriage crisis” in the press and topical literature of the 1880s and 1890s. La Jongleuse presents a literary heroine who embodies the spirit of the fin-de-siècle both by her non-conformity and her adaptation. The New Woman was concerned with a search for selfhood and a desire to realise her own potential as a human being; to be, in other words, on an equal footing with men. This sought-after female freedom was not received positively by all and, as Bjørhovde explains, many believed that “the New Woman was a selfish and self-centred creature, rejecting her traditional womanly nature and duties in order to realise her own ambitions” (Bjørhovde, 1987, p. 3). This desire to realise female potential and independence is explored by Rachilde in La Jongleuse; however, these aspirations are not achieved without some external resistance.

Painter from Life

Elizabeth Jennings Carcanet Press Ltd. PDF

Is it Dual-Natured?

Is it dual-natured to be so alive

Sometimes that your flesh seems far too small

To contain the power of the sun, or how stars thrive,

But then to be diminished, become a small

Dark of yourself, yourself your hiding-place

Where you converse with shadows which are tall

Or listen to low echoes with no grace

Of lyric joy or calm? I do not feel

Divided deep. Sometimes, the sense of the place

Where I am most light and eager can make me thrill

To the planet’s course. I am pulled or do

I draw myself up, into the sun’s overspill?

One or other. It only matters I know

What levitation would be and am grateful to learn

What’s instinctive to birds is what makes the wind blow.

I will risk all extremes. I will flounder, will stumble, will burn.

Painter from Life

He stands close to a rock. Where light falls as

The painter needs it, he

Has set his model. Now and then he asks

The youth to move, and he will keep his pose

Though sea-sounds mock his stance, while gulls go free

Over this little group. There’s not a voice,

22 Applying the Principles: The Craft of Resolution

Levine, Stewart Berrett-Koehler Publishers ePub

If we work in marble, it will perish; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds and instill into them just principles, we are then engraving upon tablets which no time will efface, but will brighten and brighten to all eternity.

Daniel Webster

Following a model to resolve conflicts and construct agreements for your projects, transactions, and relationships seems like a stretch because we are reluctant to talk in a linear way about things that we believe exist in a more emotional realm. This reaction reflects our habits of thinking. Many of us think of conflict as a “life force,” and are afraid that eliminating the drama of conflict will diminish what drives us and makes us feel alive.

I am not suggesting eliminating differences, only offering a new way of dealing with them—developing a new habit. Having disagreements and differences adds vibrancy, creativity, and innovation to life, but ongoing hostile conflict does not. Using the model will quiet your internal chatter and provide the freedom to be more productive in the present moment. Conflict and differences will not disappear, but you will develop the capacity to respond more productively.

From ‘In the Eye of the Hurricane’

Fielding, John Karnac Books ePub

Bronwyn Hocking

I was very excited about our visit to Frances Tustin. She had worked with autistic children for thirty years during which time she had evolved insights and interpretations which were suited to the needs of these apparently unreachable children. I already felt sure that Sam needed psychological help of one kind or another. I felt his withdrawal and behavioural problems were definitely linked to our relationship—that was clear from the way his autistic symptoms waxed and waned in relation to the situation at home. For example, the degree to which my state of mind seemed to affect Sam often amazed me. If I became tense through feeling hurt or angry about something Sam would become obsessive—and his futile attempts to control his environment by controlling an arbitrary aspect of it were very familiar to me. If we went for a walk feeling happy and relaxed with each other we would laugh and run and enjoy ourselves. If either one of us was anxious, Sam would immediately lock himself into a grass-picking obsession—pulling handfuls then letting it drop slowly through his fingers as he stared at it, wearing a fixed wooden expression as he did so. Although I had tried very hard to strengthen the tenuous bond between us and our relationship had improved, he and I were still either enmeshed with each other or worlds apart. We held on to each other too tightly, then rejected each other too violently when we got hurt. The problem was exacerbated by our total dependence upon each other. Sam needed somebody of his own, someone who was nothing to do with me to whom he could perhaps learn to relate in a different way.

“Rip” Ford’s Indian Fight on the Canadian

Edited by Bruce A. Glasrud and Harold J. Weiss, Jr. University of North Texas Press PDF


“Rip” Ford’s Indian Fight on the Canadian

W. J. Hughes


hroughout the year 1856, settlers on the northwest frontier of

Texas found it possible to till their fields and graze their herds with comparatively little interference from Indian attack. So tranquil appeared the situation that the War Department began a series of transfers of the Regular Army contingents from the northwest garrisons, dispatching them to Utah, Kansas, and other territories where graver problems seemed to threaten.

Into the defensive void thus created the Comanche horsemen swept during 1857, and the reeking casualty lists and tolls of vanished or destroyed property again began to mount. The whites fought back desperately, but so futilely that the entire year witnessed not one successful punitive expedition against the painted marauders.1 Frontier people, for several years irritated at the federal government’s policy of placing part of the Penateka (Honey Eater)

Comanches and the remnants of other tribes on two northwest reservations, now were vociferously angry, as incidents seemed to implicate the reservation Indians in collusion with the hostile bands.2
