Which are the Best Schools in Auckland? #metromedia, #education, #child #and


Which are the Best Schools in Auckland?

Which are the Best Schools in Auckland?

Auckland Grammar failed the cut, but Mt Roskill Grammar outshone wealthier rivals in Metro magazine’s investigation to find the top 25 high schools in Auckland.

Metro editor Lauren Quaintance says, “I expect this list to bring out strong feelings. But we felt that parents should not make such an important decision without being able to weigh up some very pertinent and new data.”

Senior writer Gilbert Wong consulted education experts to devise a novel ratings system that let Metro help provide the answer to one of the most important questions in your son or daughter’s education: which high school is best?

“If you want to know how your local school does compared to the one down the road, you won’t get an answer from the Ministry of Education,” says Wong. He gained access to a variety of databases including university entrance rates, teacher turnover and student suspensions and stand-downs that enabled Metro to rate the job schools are doing.

The Metro ratings system compares private with public, NCEA with Cambridge and comes up with a list of the 25 top performing schools across the region.

Those that made the cut include a mix of private and public, high and low decile schools. Under Metro’s criteria some so-called beacon schools like Auckland Grammar and Kings College did not perform as well as comparable schools.

Mt Roskill Grammar, a decile 5 school was discovered to be producing better results than a clutch of decile 10 high schools.

The Best Schools issue of Metro with in-depth information on the 25 top schools in the region is on sale on Monday (July 31).

The top 25 schools list:

1. St Cuthbert’s College
2. Diocesan School for Girls
3. Epsom Girls Grammar
4. Carmel College
5. Baradene College
6. Rosmini College
7. Westlake Girls” High
8. St Kentigern College
9. Kingsway School
10. Takapuna Grammar School
11. St Mary’s College
12. Rangitoto College
13. Dilworth School
14. Wesley College
15. Pakuranga College
16. Howick College
17. Glendowie College
18. Marist College
19. Mt Roskill Grammar
20. Sacred Heart College
21. St Dominic’s College
22. Sir Edmund Hillary College
23. Western Springs College
24. Liston College
25. Auckland Girls Grammar

Repairing the Ruins Conference 2017 – The nation’s largest community of


Dr. Greg Thornbury

President of The Kings College, son of a Baptist minister, and educated under the supervision of Al Mohler, Dr. Thornbury is an author and contributor to publications including First Things, World Magazine, and the Washington Post. He occasionally guest-hosts the Eric Metaxas show.

Dr. John Mark Reynolds

Founder of the Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University and St. Constantine’s School in Houston, TX, Reynolds is currently at Houston Baptist University as the Chief Academic Officer. His books include Three Views on the Creation and Evolution Debate with J.P. Moreland, Against All Gods: What’s Right and Wrong about the New Atheism with Phillip E. Johnson, and most recently, When Athens Met Jerusalem: An Introduction to Classical and Christian Thought .

Dr. Louis Markos

While you could buy Dr. Markos DVDs from The Teaching Company, you wouldn t hear these lectures. Enjoy his scholarship and humor live this year at the ACCS conference. Markos is the Robert H. Ray Chair in Humanities and Professor of English at Houston Baptist University. Explore modernism and postmodernism and learn how the church can respond to them. Together we can reverse a mindset that is not only detrimental to the arts but that threatens the central mystery of the Gospels: the Incarnation.

Dr. Christopher Perrin

Dr. Christopher Perrin is an author, consultant, and speaker who specializes in classical education. He is committed to the national renewal of the liberal arts tradition. He co-founded and serves full time as the CEO/publisher at Classical Academic Press, a classical education curriculum, media, and consulting company. He has published numerous articles and lectures that are widely used throughout the United States and the English-speaking world.

Andrew Kern

Andrew Kern is founder and president of the CiRCE Institute, and co-author of The Lost Tools of Writing and Classical Education: The Movement Sweeping America with Dr. Gene Edward Veith. Since establishing CiRCE in 1996 to serve classical educators through research and consulting, Andrew has trained and apprenticed innumerable home and school teachers, heads of school, and school boards. Andrew helped start Providence Academy in Green Bay, WI in 1993, Foundations Academy (now The Ambrose School) in Boise, ID in 1996, The Great Ideas Academy in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2001, and Regents School of the Carolinas in 2006.

Douglas Wilson

As a founder of the movement, Douglas Wilson continues to offer fresh insight and provokes us to go further up and further into classical, Christian education. Mr. Wilson is the pastor of Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho. He is a founding board member of both Logos School and New Saint Andrews College. He will encourage school leaders with a plenary talk on Leadership and Mimetic Desire as well as all Repairing the Ruins attendees when he discusses The Poetic Turn.

George Grant

George Grant served as an assistant to D. James Kennedy at the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and taught at Knox Theological Seminary. He founded the King’s Meadow Study Center and Franklin Classical School in Franklin, TN. He is the author of more than 60 books and hundreds of articles, and currently serves as pastor of Parish Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Franklin.

Matt Whitling

Mr. Whitling earns annual acclaim as our most popular practical speaker. His insights cut classroom management down to size, remind us of our real purpose, and challenge us to live what we believe. This year, Matt will exhort listeners to Get Your Bearings and Move Forward. Matt Whitling has taught elementary and secondary classes at Logos School in Moscow, Idaho, for the past 21 years. He is currently the secondary and elementary principal at Logos.

Music Practicum

The call for a practical classical application has been heard again! Last year s attendance and response exceeded our expectations, so we are offering this pre-conference again. This Kodály music training is excellent for grammar school teachers, music teachers, and anyone curious about how to bring excellence to your music teaching. This form of training will train young voices to sing on-key, and in parts. This all-day training event is brought to you by David Erb, New Saint Andrews Music Professor, and Jarrod Richey, Kodály Music Teacher | Director of Choral Activities for Geneva Academy. Read more

Paideia: Cultivating Right Affections

Augustine implores us to train the affections to love rightly, and in the right order the essence of paideia. Paideia’s rightly ordered loves draw students toward a heavenly and earthly kingdom where our Lord is the Lord of all.

This year, our plenary speakers will explore the importance of loves, rightly ordered. We have new tracks in training the affections and helping students love the good. We also have a new Foundations of Classical Christian Excellence course series that will help new and practicing classical teachers become grounded in the right things, in the right order. And, we have a new Rhetoric Practicum on Wednesday that will train both Rhetoric teachers and high-school level teachers to teach rhetorically.

To top it all off, we’ll enjoy an evening of celebration and entertainment for 25 years of growth in the ACCS and we’ll pray for and imagine the next 25 years. We expect this year’s venue to be among the best we’ve ever enjoyed. Please make plans to join us in Pittsburgh for what might be one of our most notable conferences to date.

Please note: Mark the dates now and please register early. Our conference sold out last year. With early notification, we can make additional arrangements.

Approved by the American Bar Association since 1976, Paralegal Studies at Rose State is a two-year program offering day and evening classes.

A paralegal is an individual who is educated and trained to assist a practicing attorney. Paralegals, also called legal assistants, perform a wide variety of duties and tasks which are professional in nature, distinct from routine clerical tasks. A primary responsibility of a paralegal is to relieve the supervising attorney of routine duties so that the attorney is able to use his/her time in more complex areas of the case. Proper use of a paralegal/legal assistant enables an attorney to handle a heavier case load and increase productivity, thereby resulting in the delivery of legal services to a client more efficiently and economically.

The Paralegal Studies Program is designed to prepare the student with the necessary knowledge and skills to gain employment as a paralegal/legal assistant and/or to allow the student to advance to positions of increasing responsibility in the legal field.

Continuing Education Providers #tdlr, #texas, #ce #provider, #continuing #education, #ce, #ceus,


Continuing Education Providers

Rule Review – TDLR is reviewing the Continuing Education Requirements located at Title 16, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 59 for re-adoption, revision, or repeal. Read the Notice of Intent to Review

Reduced Fees for Continuing Education Providers – On November 21, 2013, the Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation approved a reduction in the application fees for Continuing Education Providers. The initial and renewal application fees were reduced from $250 to $200, a savings of 20%. The fee reductions are effective March 1, 2014 for initial applications and April 1, 2014 for renewals. The Commission also changed CE provider registrations so that they are no longer required to register for each occupation. One provider registration covers all TDLR programs. TDLR estimates these fee reductions and changes will result in a savings of $34,450 annually, with an estimated five-year savings of $172,250.

These savings result from the fee review we conduct each year, as part of our vision of Smaller, Smarter Government , said TDLR Executive Director William Kuntz. TDLR license fees must be reasonable and necessary only to cover the costs of administering its programs. With these fee reductions, our licensees and the public will receive the same high level of service but now at a lower cost.

At their November 21st meeting, the commission lowered fees for more than 400,000 TDLR licensees. TDLR estimates the total savings for all licensees will amount to nearly $6 million each year, with an estimated five-year savings of $29,661,245 .

I m proud that TDLR is leading the way to lower economic barriers for entry into the Texas workforce while helping businesses grow and keep more money in their pockets, said Commission Chairman Mike Arismendez. With these fee reductions, TDLR licensees will save real money now and for years to come.

TDLR continuing education providers use a web-based system enabling them to submit course completion documentation on the TDLR web site. Visit the Continuing Education Completion Reporting Site .

The roster system allows licensees to obtain credit almost immediately once a course has been completed. It also reduces data entry requirements for providers and allows for quick verification that the information provided to TDLR is accurate.

    Online Courses

    Before you search through our database of Online Australian Courses, please take the time to read the below as it may help you to decide if Online Learning is right for you.
    So, what’s it all about?

    So what’s Online Learning all about?

    Unless you are directly involved with teaching online or have taken an online course yourself, chances are that you find the concept of online education a little scary. You might not have any interest in it. Terms like distance education, fully online, blended courses, virtual courses, e-learning, hybrid courses, mixed-mode, asynchronous learning, distributed learning, Web-facilitated, and Web-enhanced learning add to the confusion. However, online learning is on the rise due to the developments and affordability of computing and you should know some of the basics and issues surrounding it.

    The Advantages of Studying Online

    Considering the fact that there are numerous benefits that are linked to education and advancing your qualifications, there are as yet far more advantages for people who pursue online education as to achieve their goals. Some of the most basic benefits of studying online include:


    Online learning classes can be taken during a lunch break, while your children are out playing games, or even while you are cooking dinner! It is not necessary for you to be present in a classroom at any fixed time for the next two or four years so as to complete your qualification. But this does not mean that you would not be required to work at all. You would be required to do the same type of study as a traditional campus based student, that too within a particular time limit. The only flexibility you would enjoy is that you can study and finish your work at any time of the day.

    Another wonderful thing about studying online these days is that you get to know your classmates and tutors more intimately. Online chat rooms, emails, course work forums etc allow students to ask questions, share ideas and seek help if needed. In fact, some say that studying online is more interactive than the traditional face to face student given the vast array of available technologies.


    The best part about studying online is that education comes to you no matter where you are as long as you have a computer connected to the Internet. So wherever you are, at home, at work, or your favourite beach or park, you can easily access your course work and enjoy the environment in which you are completing your studies.


    Say goodbye to all financial issues like convenience meals, childcare expenses, as well as the money would have had to spend reach campus thirty minutes away. With the availability of online courses, you can study from the comfort of your own home, without having to face the many financial hardships that come with having to attend traditional college.

    Personalised Attention for All

    Students who enrol in online programs get to receive a much more individualised attention from their tutors as compared to the attention students who study in traditional classes. Online education classes are virtual and students and teachers basically correspond with each other through emails, telephone calls etc. This is one reason why your tutors would know more about you, your learning pattern and your requirements as compared to the students they get to see three or four times a week.

    These are some of the most basic advantages of online study and one should closely look at both the benefits and the disadvantages of online education before making a decision. Make sure that the course you are taking is one which would help you grow professionally and not one you would repent taking.

    College of Education and Human Development – UTSA – University of


    Purpose of Program

    This program is designed for students who want to work with children and adolescents experiencing a wide range of academic, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. Common roles and functions of the School Psychologist include psychological assessment, counseling, consultation, crisis intervention, research, and program evaluation. School Psychologists work with students, their families, and school staff in order to help students be as successful as possible in school. The program is designed to provide students the academic and practical training necessary to become licensed as a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists. Graduates are eligible to apply for certification as a Nationally Certified School Psychologist, which is a nationally-recognized professional certification granted by the National Association of School Psychologists.

    Program Options

    The National Association of School Psychologists and the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists both require master’s and specialist-level programs in School Psychology to include at least 60 hours of coursework, including practicum and internship. These entities also provide very specific courses and domains of competence that must be reflected in the curriculum. The degree requirements and curriculum reflect these standards, which will facilitate the professional accreditation of the program and the licensure of our graduates. The requirements also are consistent with those of other School Psychology programs within the state.

    The Master of Arts in School Psychology is a 66-hour program, and typically requires three to four years to complete. The program includes coursework and field-based experiences related to psychological assessment, intervention, learning, child development, psychopathology, research, statistics, and professional issues. Students also complete a full-time internship in a school setting. Due to the clinical nature of this program and number of hours required, the degree does not have a Thesis option.

    Career Opportunities

    School Psychology has been identified by the U.S. Department of Labor as a specialization that is likely to have faster than average employment growth. In addition, Texas has been identified as a state that will encounter one of the most serious shortages of School Psychologists in the near future. Thus, the job prospects for School Psychologists are very favorable. Minority and bilingual school psychologists are especially needed given the increasing diversity of public schools.

    The Visible Embryo is a visual guide through fetal development from fertilization through pregnancy to birth. As the most profound physiologic changes occur in the first trimester of pregnancy, these Carnegie stages are given prominence on the birth spiral.

    The shape and location of embryonic
    internal structures and how they
    relate and are connected to each
    other is essential to understanding
    human development. Medical
    professionals create a mental picture
    of this process in order to determine
    how well the fetus is progressing. It is
    also the basis of knowing how and when
    errors in development occur and if a
    possibility exists for a corrective

    It is equally important for expectant
    parents to understand the relationship
    of these internal structures and how
    their infant develops through pregnancy.

    Creating the images for The Visible Embryo, included capturing data from slides and three dimensional structures on fetal anatomy in The National Institutes of Health, Carnegie Collection of embryos. as well as from 3D and 4D ultra sound images.

    Education for criminal justice #education #for #criminal #justice


    Criminal Justice Fact Sheet

    Incarceration Trends in America

    • Between 1980 and 2015, the number of people incarcerated in America increased from roughly 500,000 to over 2.2 million
    • Today, the United States makes up about 5% of the world’s population and has 21% of the world’s prisoners.
    • 1 in every 37 adults in the United States, or 2.7% of the adult population, is under some form of correctional supervision.

    Racial Disparities in Incarceration

    • In 2014, African Americans constituted 2.3 million, or 34%, of the total 6.8 million correctional population.
    • African Americans are incarcerated at more than 5 times the rate of whites.
    • The imprisonment rate for African American women is twice that of white women.
    • Nationwide, African American children represent 32% of children who are arrested, 42% of children who are detained, and 52% of children whose cases are judicially waived to criminal court.
    • Though African Americans and Hispanics make up approximately 32% of the US population, they comprised 56% of all incarcerated people in 2015.
    • If African Americans and Hispanics were incarcerated at the same rates as whites, prison and jail populations would decline by almost 40%.
    • Drug Sentencing Disparities
    • In the 2015 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, about 17 million whites and 4 million African Americans reported having used an illicit drug within the last month.
    • African Americans and whites use drugs at similar rates, but the imprisonment rate of African Americans for drug charges is almost 6 times that of whites.
    • African Americans represent 12.5% of illicit drug users, but 29% of those arrested for drug offenses and 33% of those incarcerated in state facilities for drug offenses.

    Contributing Factors

    • Inner city crime prompted by social and economic isolation
    • Crime/drug arrest rates: African Americans represent 12% of monthly drug users, but comprise 32% of persons arrested for drug possession
    • Get tough on crime and war on drugs policies
    • Mandatory minimum sentencing, especially disparities in sentencing for crack and powder cocaine possession
    • In 2002, blacks constituted more than 80% of the people sentenced under the federal crack cocaine laws and served substantially more time in prison for drug offenses than did whites, despite that fact that more than 2/3 of crack cocaine users in the U.S. are white or Hispanic
    • Three Strikes /habitual offender policies
    • Zero Tolerance policies as a result of perceived problems of school violence; adverse affect on black children
    • 35% of black children grades 7-12 have been suspended or expelled at some point in their school careers compared to 20% of Hispanics and 15% of whites

    Effects of Incarceration

    • A criminal record can reduce the likelihood of a callback or job offer by nearly 50 percent. The negative impact of a criminal record is twice as large for African American applicants.
    • Infectious diseases are highly concentrated in corrections facilities: 15% of jail inmates and 22% of prisoners – compared to 5% of the general population – reported ever having tuberculosis, Hepatitis B and C, HIV/AIDS, or other STDs.
    • In 2012 alone, the United States spent nearly $81 billion on corrections.
    • Spending on prisons and jails has increased at triple the rate of spending on Pre-K-12 public education in the last thirty years.

    Our Major #program #in #criminal #justice, #school #of #arts #and #sciences,


    Criminal Justice Major

    Students completing the major in Criminal Justice are instructed on the theories and practices pertaining to the criminal justice system, crime, prevention, and public and corporate responses to criminal behaviors on the local, national, and international level. This course of study leads them to function in an increasingly complex, confrontational, and violent world.

    “Don’t think because you are majoring in Criminal Justice that your opportunities are limited to the field. The material you will be taught and the skills you will hone do much for your overall development as a thinking and contributing member of society—I was exposed to many different fields while completing the major and all have given me a unique and fresh perspective on the world. Pick Criminal Justice because it intrigues you, not because you are looking for a specific job: you can go to graduate school for that.”

    The major is structured into three general sections with a completion of a minimum of 36 credits: General Coursework (which consists of 6 courses), Thematic Coursework (which consists of 3 courses), and Elective Coursework (which consists of 3 courses). All students interested in declaring a major in Criminal Justice must first complete Introduction to Criminal Justice (01:202:201); furthermore, in order to declare a major in Criminal Justice, students are required to earn a grade of “C” or better and have a minimum cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. Similarly, only courses that earn a grade of “C” or better will be counted toward the major.

    In order to declare your major, first please visit this School of Arts and Sciences website to find tips and advice about choosing both your major(s) and minor(s). When you are ready to declare, visit the MyMajor portal to log in with your Net ID and password.

    Students are strongly encouraged to make an appointment to meet with the advising staff on a regular basis when selecting courses so that we can help you create an academic course of study which will best match your post-baccalaureate plans and most prepare you for the advanced training you will need in your respective career field within criminal justice. In order to schedule an appointment with the advising staff, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    Students can download a copy of the major and its required components here. and use it as a checklist to chart your progress.

    The GENERAL COURSEWORK section includes the mandatory completion of the following courses:

    1. Introduction to Criminal Justice (01:202:201)
    2. Criminology (01:920:222)
    3. Police (01:202:202)
    4. Prisons and Prisoners (01:202:203)
    5. Any ONE of the following courses:
      1. Crime and Public Policy (01:202:204) OR
      2. Criminal Procedure (01:202:205)
      3. OR Law and Politics (01:790:106)
    6. Any ONE of the following research methods courses:
      1. Criminal Justice Research Methods (01:202:307) OR
      2. Introduction to Political Science Methods (01:790:300) OR
      3. Quantitative Methods in Psychology (01:830:200) OR
      4. Introduction to Social Research (01:920:311) OR
      5. Computer Analysis of Social Science Data (01:920:312) OR
      6. Statistics I (01:960:211)* OR
      7. Introductory Statistics for Business (01:960:285)

    The General Coursework section involves the completion of Intro. to Criminal Justice first and foremost. Students take Criminology, which is offered through the Sociology department. The Program centers upon the three areas of criminal justice: law enforcement, courts, and corrections. This is why students must complete Police (law enforcement), Prisons and Prisoners (corrections), and either Crime and Public Policy or Criminal Procedure or Law and Politics (courts). Any student entering the field of criminal justice will need to draw upon a background in research and research methods of some kind, which is why students are also required to complete a research methods course; furthermore, these courses serve as a prerequisite for some of the upper-level elective courses.

    *Please be advised that according to the policies of the Statistics department, you can only earn credit for one of the following statistics courses: 01:960:211, 01:960:212, 01:960:285, 01:960:384, 01:960:401, 01:960:484.

    The THEMATIC COURSEWORK section includes the mandatory completion of three total courses. All of the courses that can be used to satisfy the Thematic requirements are from outside departments. (N.B. Students need to be careful that they have the necessary prerequisites for courses they are considering taking.) These courses are from such departments as Political Science, History, Sociology, Psychology, etc. If you find a course not on the approved list of Thematic courses, please reach out to the Academic Advisor before you register for the course in order to see if you could add it to the list of Thematics: be sure to include the course information, as well as a copy of the course description and syllabus.

    The list of approved Thematic courses are grouped into three thematic areas: Human Behavior, Deviance, and Crime (HBDC); Social Control Institutions (SCI); and Law and Ethics (LE). Students are required to complete two of their three Thematic course requirements from at least two different thematic areas.

    Theme: Human Behavior, Deviance, and Crime (HBDC)

    01:014:318 Bigotry, Prejudice, and Racism

    01:070:310 Human Aggression

    01:830:375 Prejudice and Conflict

    Guide for Writing a Funding Proposal #funding, #proposal, #grant, #funding #proposal,



    This Guide for Writing a Funding Proposal was created to help empower people to be successful in gaining funds for projects that provide worthwhile social service. A major theme that runs throughout the Guide is a concern for the development of meaningful cooperative relationships – with funding agencies, with community organizations, and with the people you are serving – as a basis for the development of strong fundable initiatives. The Guide is built on the assumption that it is through collaboration and participation at all levels that long term change can be effected.

    To make this Guide as useful as possible, all suggestions have been carefully reviewed with a concern that they be easy to implement and can have the greatest positive effect on the creation of a funding proposal. (This is the same design concern that I used for the creation of the companion guide for graduate students – Guide for Writing and Presenting Your Thesis or Dissertation ). Long orations are minimized and suggestions are presented in a direct and clear manner. Actual proposal examples are included so that you can easily see the different suggestions demonstrated.

    As you are going through this Guide you will probably see things that aren’t clear, need fixing, or should be further clarified. Please send them along and I will do my best to improve the Guide based upon your ideas. I try to make major revisions in the Guide at least 2-3 times each year. Your suggestions on how to improve this Guide will be most appreciated

    And finally, I receive many requests asking me to recommend a book or two that would be helpful in writing a good proposal. I’ve started to create such a listing of books I’ve identified and my review of each of them. Feel free to check out my selection of books to help with the preparation of a funding proposal .

    Enjoy using this Guide and I hope it brings you good luck as you seek funding for your ideas!

    Book Clubs for Kids #main #education


    Book Clubs for Kids

    Book clubs, meetings where adults get together in person or online to discuss books that they have read, have gained popularity in recent years. Book clubs for kids and their parents, including mother-daughter book clubs, father-son book clubs, and parent-child book clubs, have also become popular. Book clubs are a great way for parents and children to share books together. By reading books and discussing them together, you can share special time with your child, while helping him develop a love of reading and important language and literacy skills.

    Find out how to start a parent-child book club, get tips for organizing and maintaining a book club and suggestions for ways to have great discussions, and learn about the benefits of parent-child book clubs.

    Reading for your kid is a great thing, I encourage all parents to do it. Starting a club is an excellent idea where parents can share ideas and discuss new books together.

    I think joining your child in a book club is a great thing it get your child ready for the school years ahead of them.

    My name is Dale Hayes, I wrote and self published my first children s book, KC..The Good Little Diggy Dog Who Does Naughty Things is going home . It is a story of adoption and unconditional love. KC used to live in a shelter and like all the Diggy Dogs, he dreamed of being adopted. Then one day, Mommy and Daddy came to the shelter and picked him out of all the other Diggy Dogs. He was so happy to be going home to begin his new adventures. His lovable, curious and adventurous nature often gets him into naughty situations. This is the first in a series of children s books that I am writing about our adopted puppy that will inspire imagination, spark dialogue and create teachable moments for young children. They will enjoy sharing in the exploits of this energetic, vivacious little Diggy Dog.

    I would like some information on what the process would be on how to submit my book to the Kids Clubs. For more information please do not hesitate to contact me

    Thank you for your time.

    I m writing on behalf of a colleague, the author of Pencil Monster, who is a teacher in the Bay Area. She is trying to promote reading comprehension and make reading fun by creating books that kids need to interact with. Her latest idea is making stories for the iPad. Check out this one: It s purposely a short book because students need to illustrate the pages which takes a while not to mention it s geared toward the attention span of an 8 year old. I like to use it for early finishers. I think parents would like it because it promotes reading and creativity. 99cents and keeps my kids busy for hours! Please help her promote it if you like it. Thanks!

    Jocelyn Sophia Poesnecker

    Greetings! My name is Jocelyn Sophia Poesnecker. I am the author and
    illustrator of a brand new children s book entitled BESSIE SUE HELPS HER
    PARENTS. In this full color storybook, a character named Bessie Sue is
    a girl who lives in Bosnia, and is always helpful and optimistic. When
    her parents are cold and hungry one spring morning, Bessie wants them
    to stay in bed, while she goes out and milks the cow. She stays patient
    after the cat tips over the pail of milk, and milks the cow again.
    Then she heads for the house, and still wants to be the one to heat the
    milk and make hot chocolate for her parents.

    The text is rhyming
    and clever, with a lush vocabulary. The illustrations are beautiful and
    very appealing to children. I have three more BESSIE SUE books ready,
    so the children have a continuation of Bessie Sue s adventures to hope
    for. I invite you to give this book for all the beloved children in your life, and include it in book clubs.

    Are you interested in donating a copy to a children s little library?

  • Ethical Dilemmas – Moral Dilemmas – Classroom Discussion #ethical, #moral, #dilemma,


    This is #17 of an ongoing series of discussion starters from the case files of Charis Denison. The situations presented are very real and are changed monthly. Please try them out with your students and share your results with us. You can find the complete archive of dilemmas here.

    (present this to your students)

    Kevin is a talented basketball player whose high school team made it into the playoffs and all the way to the city championship game. As a result, Kevin had to miss his school s baseball tryouts and a couple of weeks of practice. So, he was grateful when the coach gave him an opportunity to come out for the team anyway. Kevin s older brother had been on the varsity team for four years, so the coach knew the family and assumed Kevin would follow in his brother s footsteps. But Kevin had never played league baseball before and had no expectation of getting a lot of playing time. Besides, the team already had a solid lineup of experienced players; he would just have to be patient and earn his position through hard work.

    Which is why Kevin was shocked when the coach announced the starting lineup for the first game: Kevin was picked to start at third base.

    Kevin immediately felt confused, then embarrassed, then guilty. He was confused because the coach had never seen him play. He felt embarrassed and guilty because everyone knew that the coach must have made this decision based on Kevin s athletic reputation and the coach s relationship with Kevin s older brother. Kevin considered himself a team player. He also knew the other third baseman a strong player who never missed a practice. Surely the other guy deserved to be the starter. He looked around at his teammates and saw himself through their eyes. He felt bad. He walked to his position without making eye contact with the coach or the players.

    After the game, Kevin called his brother and said he was thinking about asking the coach to let him step down until he had earned the position in a way that was fair to the rest of the team. His brother said no way. Life is about seizing opportunity. That s how you achieve your dreams. Why give up your big chance? Besides, he said, I put in a good word for you, so don t blow it.

    Kevin felt like he was stuck. If he kept silent, he risked the respect of his team; if he came forward, he risked the athletic opportunity and his relationship with his coach. He needed to make a decision before the next game.

    haris (KAIR-iss) Denison, founder of Prajna Consulting, is an expert in Community Involvement, Human Development, and Ethics. She has built her experience primarily by working with schools and non-profits for the past 15 years.

    (this is for you)

    This case is a great one for introducing students to the idea that taking no action is taking action. In other words, when my students are discussing scenarios like this and come back with the infamous, just take what happened and don t do anything; it s not your responsibility, I reply, not making a choice is a choice.

    Students love to talk about times when they have been the victims of an unfair situation. It s a lot of fun to turn the tables on them and have them talk about when they have benefited from an unfair situation. Do they bear some responsibility to restore justice? I find it effective to get students to articulate what each of three parties would consider fair in the scenario (the coach, Kevin, the team).

    If you have covered any of the more formal ethical principles, this case works very well when you assign one of the three principles to each group and have them apply it to their decision (ends-based, rule-based, care-based).

    (also, debate topics, writing assignments, etc.

    • What do you think Kevin should do? What do you think you would do?
    • How do you think the team might feel about the coach letting Kevin start without having seen him play or participate in the first two weeks of practice?
    • What do you think is the coach s reason for making Kevin a starting player? Do you agree with it?
    • How do you feel about the role Kevin s brother is playing in all this?
    • How might Kevin feel if he doesn t talk to the coach?
    • How much influence do you think Kevin s brother has on Kevin s choice?
    • If you were faced with an ethical dilemma, how important would your sibling s opinion be?
    • Have you ever seen someone you know benefit from an unfair situation? What happened? What did it feel like? How did the person benefiting respond? If you didn t agree with that response, how do you wish he/she would have responded?
    • Have you ever benefited from an unfair situation? What happened and how did you respond? Would you respond in the same way again?

    What Can I Do with an Associate – s Degree in


    What Can I Do with an Associate’s Degree in Elementary Education?

    Completing an associate’s degree program in elementary education may prepare graduates for a job as an elementary school aide, or it may just be a precursor to earning more education in the field. Read on to find out what options are available to graduates of an associate’s degree program in elementary education. Schools offering Elementary Education degrees can also be found in these popular choices.

    What is an Associate’s Degree in Elementary Education?

    Most elementary school teachers are required to have at least a bachelor’s degree, as a 4-year degree is needed to gain teacher certification in most states. For this reason, an associate’s degree in elementary education alone cannot provide individuals with the academic credentials necessary to work as educators in public and private schools. However, many community colleges still offer 2-year, associate’s degree programs in elementary education. While these programs alone cannot prepare students to become teachers, they can prepare them for other opportunities.

    While enrolled in an associate’s degree in elementary education, students should learn the basics of primary education. They may examine a variety of topics, including educational techniques and classroom technology. Graduates of such a degree program may enter the educational workforce as teaching aides or assistants or pursue higher education in a related field. Below are a couple of employment and educational options available to those with an associate’s degree in elementary education.

    Important Facts About Teacher Assistants

    Become an Elementary School Aide

    Elementary school aides, sometimes referred to as teacher aides or assistants, are responsible for assisting teachers with a wide range of classroom tasks. These tasks allow teachers to focus their energy on planning and implementing lessons. Aides may help move students between school locations, supervise students and prepare materials for classroom lessons. In some cases, aides may assist in the grading of projects and homework. Although many aides only hold high school diplomas, some states require aides to hold degrees from accredited 2-year college programs.

    Earn Further Education in the Field

    Many graduates of associate’s degree programs in elementary education can choose to continue their studies at a 4-year university. Credits earned in such a program may be applied toward a bachelor’s degree program in the field. Bachelor’s degree programs build upon the knowledge gained in associate’s degree programs and help prepare students to pass a teaching certification exam. Teachers may continue their education by earning a master’s degree in elementary education or in a more specific field. In general, a higher education level translates into higher pay.

    Victory Starts Here!

    The four TRADOC functions of DESIGN. ACQUIRE. BUILD and IMPROVE are crucial to enable the Army to meet specific Army strategic aimpoints. These aimpoints are defined in the Army Strategic Plan between now and 2050 for the three chief of staff of the Army priorities of Readiness (Current Fight), Future Army (Future Fight) and Take Care of the Troops (Always). These aimpoints describe Army capabilities and conditions for the Current Fight, Next Fight and Future Fight.

    TRADOC designs the future force to ensure that the United States Army remains the dominate land power in the world.

    Multi-Domain Battle is the concept that will allow the Army, with the Joint Force, to maintain military dominance by developing both greater self-sufficiency and deeper joint integration to fight and win without assured air, sea, space and cyber dominance.

    TRADOC recruits the next generation of Soldiers and leaders.

    Improve Accessions Enterprise: The Army is Soldiers. The Army requires an accessions system that finds and recruits the best future Soldiers across the nation.

    TRADOC trains the next generation of Soldiers and leaders.

    Lessons learned, refined doctrine and leader development merge at TRADOC to improve the Army .

  • Adapt the Institutional Army: the Army must change for the information age. New methods of training, education, career management, logistical support, financial management, communication–internal and external, and a host of others will improve the Army.
  • New Doctrine: battlefield experiences combined with new concepts require new doctrine that effectively describes how the Army will accomplish its assigned missions.
  • Talent Management: the Army must transcend its industrial age personnel management systems to fully develop and employ the talents each Soldier brings to the fight.
  • Army University: TRADOC is reforming and systematizing the Army school system to make it both more effective and more efficient.
  • NCO 2020: the future will place greater demands on NCOs. NCO 2020 ensures that NCOs have the skills, training and experiences to continue to lead the Army into the future.

  • Homeschool CCD #homeschool,catholic,ccd,psr,homeschooling,parish,school,religious #education,homeschool #ccd,homeschool #psr,ccd #at #home,psr #at #home


    Teaching religious education at home is really a wonderful option for many parents. Of course there are many parents who homeschool for every subject, but there are also parents who have their children in a public school or private school and select to do just their religion classes at home. There are a wide variety of reasons to do this. There might be scheduling conflicts with the parish’s CCD or PSR program, there might be concerns about how well the materials chosen by a parish teach the faith, or parents might simply think that teaching religion at home will not only help their children learn the Faith better, but will strengthen their relationship with their child, who, if they go to a regular school, might not be at home all that often.

    Whether Parents are allowed to do their religious instruction outside of the parish CCD or PSR program.

    One of the first questions parents have is whether or not homeschooling for CCD or PSR is actually allowed by the Church. The answer is yes! The Second Vatican Council put together a document on Christian education, Gravissimum Educationis, in which it was explained that parents, society, and the Church all have a duty regarding the education of children, but that the primary and principal duty belongs to parents.

    Since parents have given children their life, they are bound by the most serious obligation to educate their offspring and therefore must be recognized as the primary and principal educators. This role in education is so important that only with difficulty can it be supplied where it is lacking. Parents are the ones who must create a family atmosphere animated by love and respect for God and man, in which the well-rounded personal and social education of children is fostered. Hence the family is the first school of the social virtues that every society needs. It is particularly in the Christian family, enriched by the grace and office of the sacrament of matrimony, that children should be taught from their early years to have a knowledge of God according to the faith received in Baptism, to worship Him, and to love their neighbor.

    In asking whether homeschooling for CCD is acceptable, we are acknowledging that there are two different spheres of authority that appear to over lap. These two positions were admirably summarized in the text Responsibilities and Rights of Parents in Religious Education published by the Catholic Home School Network of America. On the one hand, Parents have the freedom to undertake systematic catechesis of their own children in preparation for the sacraments. For this reason, parents may use other means to catechize their children in the place of parish-sponsored programs, subject only to the doctrinal authority of the Church and to the virtue of prudence. On the other hand, Pastors have principal practical authority over the administration of the sacraments. For this reason, pastors are to judge the eligibility and proper disposition of candidates for the first reception of the sacraments and they are to set the time, place, and manner of the reception of a sacrament, subject only to the doctrine and discipline of the Church regarding sacraments and to the virtue of prudence. These two spheres of authority should not be in conflict, but should harmoniously work together for the formation of good and Faith-filled children.

    Every parish has different guidelines surrounding the reception of the sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Unfortunately, a few parishes seem to make it difficult for parents to do their religious instruction at home, while others make it very easy. The virtue of prudence would seem to suggest that parents should acquiesce to any reasonable requirements a parish might demand. However, it would also seem that if a parish were to deny a parent’s right to conduct religious instruction at home and demand attendance at the parish’s CCD program, that such a demand would be unreasonable. The Code of Canon Law would seem to suggest that parents have the duty to choose the best means for instruction when it says Parents and those who take their place are bound by the obligation and possess the right of educating their offspring. Catholic parents also have the duty and right of choosing those means and institutions through which they can provide more suitably for the Catholic education of their children, according to local circumstances. (Can. 793 §1.)


    An excellent article, written by Benedict Nguyen, homeschooling father, canon lawyer, and Chancellor of the Diocese of La Crosse, WI, can be found here: Home Schooling in Canon Law

    Canon lawyer Dr. Edward Peters wrote a pamphlet called Home Schooling and the New Code of Canon Law which is fantastic.

    Responsibilities and Rights of Parents in Religious Education. mentioned earlier, is one of the best sources on this topic. It is published by the Catholic Home School Network of America and can be purchased here: Responsibilities and Rights at Seton Educational Media

    Recommended Religion Programs

    Religion for Young Catholics

    This series, which begins with a Kindergarten Catechism and goes through an 8th grade Church History text, is one of the most solidly Catholic programs available. With beautiful color pictures on most pages, these workbook style texts published by Seton Press are remarkably in-depth. Going far beyond the fluff content of many religion texts, the for Young Catholics series looks at foundational teachings of Catholic doctrine such as the nature and character of each of the seven sacraments, the Incarnation and Redemption, the sacrifice of the Mass, how to make a good confession, the Trinity and the angels, and of course the commandments. Parents are likely to learn almost as much as their children when going through this series. Each book has an imprimatur and they are sold at bargain prices.

    Faith and Life

    A very popular series published by Ignatius Press, the Faith and Life series is solidly Catholic and gives in-depth instruction. This series is designed to incorporate many quotations from Sacred Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Each grade level is very thematic and the overall series is described as a spiral development of catechesis .

    Didache Series

    This well-designed and beautifully laid-out series from the Midwest Theological Forum. (Yes, this is a Catholic organization despite a somewhat Protestant sounding name. It is possible the MTF also has some connection with movement/religious order Opus Dei.) The volume on Scripture was written by the noted Scripture lecturer Dr. Scott Hahn. While perhaps a little more expensive than some of the other options, this series has a lot of good qualities which might make it worth the price.

    “A friend who is a maven in finding outstanding resources, recommended Janice and Custom College Visits as we began the daunting college selection process. We worked with Janice on two fronts; to help create a list of colleges and to set-up meaningful colleges visits. The college visits were also a lot of fun for us as a family and very informative on so many levels. More importantly Janice helped make the college selection process manageable, not so daunting after all, and we felt no stone was left unturned in this important decision.

    Tracy P. Parent of a New York City high school Senior

    Thank you so much for planning such a wondrous experience for our son. The careful attention to detail was evident at every turn. Custom College Visits planning effort provided an appropriate path of discovery for our son and for us.

    Michael C. New Jersey parent of a high school Junior

    Hi Janice, Our trip was a thoroughly enjoyable family adventure! Thank you so much for the unique opportunities that you created for our daughter at each college. Meeting with a student at Harvard, was probably the most informative way to start the entire trip. She devoted a lot of time (in the rain) providing real college life details. She swiped us into dining halls, dorms & buildings that we might not have seen otherwise. The sophomore session at Princeton was wonderful! Thank you so much for everything that you did! We really were able to get the most out of each campus visit! Best, Julie

    Julie, Parent of a high school Junior in Southern California

    I found working with Custom College Visits a very positive experience. They were able to pinpoint colleges that were best suited for my daughter and the travel plans were well organized. In addition, they were able to set up an interview with a member of a college color guard, as my daughter had expressed interest in going to a school that had a color guard. I am very pleased with my experience with Custom College Visits, and would recommend them highly.

    Mark L. Parent of high school junior in Northern California

    Lili got accepted into her first choice school today (early decision): Boston University! She is thrilled beyond belief and relieved as well. We could not have done it without your help, it was invaluable. I think the High School Honors program she did there was probably very helpful and we would not have know about it without your forwarding the information to us. You rock! So, I am tipping my hat today to both you and Lili!

    Kim T. Parent of high school senior in Kansas

    I am happy to tell you that Nivi has been accepted early decision to Brown University. She is the first ivy leaguer in our family and we couldn’t be more proud! Her decision to apply was made easier because of the excellent experience she had during her customized tour via your company so thank you so much! We will be sure to recommend you to our friends here..

    Gayathri S. Parent of high school senior Chennai, India

    Thank you again for being so good at what you do. Our trip to the US was a huge success. I was on the verge of cancelling the trip but knew I couldn’t let my son down. That I even found you on the internet was a direct answer to my prayer for a miracle. The itinerary worked very well. I knew I was in good hands even before I boarded the plane to the U.S. and your attention to detail far exceeded my expectation.

    Egbe O. Parent of international high school student

    We had a wonderful trip to Philadelphia and Boston thanks to Janice Caine of Custom College Visits. She worked out an itinerary from start to finish. We visited 9 schools and it was as smooth as possible. Janice worked out tours and information sessions as well as meetings with tennis coaches.We have boy/girl twins and both were happy which is not an easy achievement. Not only did Janice work out the schedule but she recommended great schools in both towns. We would highly recommend her.

    Phil S. Parent of high school students SF Bay Area

    “Thank you SO MUCH for your involvement in the Splash Parents’ Program this weekend! I am just reviewing the feedback forms, and your presentation received rave reviews across the board; many parents cited it as the highlight of the program for them! Some verbatim quotes include: ‘The Planning and Preparing for College Visits was a great eye opener;’ Thank you for all the effort, energy, and enthusiasm you put into making the event such a success.”

    Marisa M. Coordinator, Splash Parents’ Program Stanford University

    Our college process was two-fold. It began with getting a jump start on the standardized testing, and not waiting until spring of junior year to focus. I believe our outcome was successful because we had a well-managed plan helped along by an expert, Janice Caine, of Custom College Visits.

    Lisa L. Parent of high school students SF Bay Area

    Happy New Year! Wanted to let you know that Charlie was accepted to Johns Hopkins Early Decision! Great news and very exciting all around. Thank you for all your help.

    Beth A. Parent of a high school senior. Massachusetts

    Reflective Practice in Social Work #social #worker, #social #work, #clinical, #medical,


    Eye on Ethics

    Reflective Practice in Social Work — The Ethical Dimension
    By Frederic G. Reamer, PhD
    April 2013

    Recently, I received an urgent voicemail message from a hospital social worker: “Please get back to me as soon as possible. I have a meeting tomorrow morning with our head of human resources, and I’m very nervous about it.”

    Later in the day, I connected with the social worker and learned the following: He had been employed by the hospital for seven years and had never been disciplined. His current predicament began when his immediate supervisor called him in to discuss concerns about possible boundary violations and an alleged inappropriate dual relationship with a hospital patient. The social worker explained to me that in his personal life he is actively involved in a community-based group of parents who adopted children from China. The group sponsors a wide range of activities to support and enhance the children’s ethnic identity. Through this involvement, the social worker said, he and his wife had become very friendly with several other adoptive parents.

    About three weeks earlier, one of the parents who had become a good friend was admitted to the social worker’s hospital for treatment of a chronic, debilitating infection. The friend did not receive social work services. During the friend’s hospital stay, the social worker occasionally stopped by his room to say hello and inquire about the friend’s health. The patient’s attending physician had collaborated professionally with the social worker in other hospital cases and was well aware of the patient’s friendship with the social worker.

    One afternoon during the patient’s hospital stay, the physician contacted the social worker and explained that the patient was distraught after having just learned that he was diagnosed with bone cancer. According to the social worker, the physician asked the social worker to visit the patient and offer emotional support. The social worker visited the patient in his room and spent about an hour helping his friend process the distressing medical news.

    The social worker documented this patient encounter in the hospital chart. During a random quality-control review of social workers’ chart entries, the hospital’s social work supervisor read the note and became concerned because the social worker had not been assigned to provide social work services to this patient. The supervisor learned of the social worker and patient’s friendship and notified the director of human resources, who documented this “incident” in the social worker’s personnel record and asked to meet with the social worker.

    The Nature of Reflective Practice
    In 1983, the late scholar Donald Schon published his influential and groundbreaking book The Reflective Practitioner: How Professionals Think in Action . Schon’s thesis, based on his extensive empirical research, was that the most skilled and effective professionals have the ability to pay critical attention to the way they conduct their work at the same time that they do their work. Schon coined the terms “knowing-in-action” and “reflection-in-action,” which suggest that some professionals can take a step back and think hard about what they are doing while they are doing it. The concepts are akin to the widely used social work concept “use of self.”

    Ordinarily the concepts of knowing-in-action and reflection-in-action are applied to practitioners’ cultivation and use of technical skill, whether in surgery, architecture, town planning, engineering, dentistry, or psychotherapy. In my view, and as the above case demonstrates, social workers would do well to extend the application of these compelling concepts to their identification and management of ethical issues in the profession. Ideally, effective practitioners would have the ability to recognize and address ethical issues and challenges as they arise in the immediate context of their work, not later when someone else points them out. Put another way, social workers would have a refined “ethics radar” that increases their ability to detect and respond to ethical issues.

    Of course, the most important benefit is client protection. However, an important by-product is self-protection, that is, the increased likelihood that social workers will protect themselves from ethics-related complaints.

    Implementing Reflective Ethics Practice
    Certainly the hospital social worker who called me with panic in his voice would have benefited from reflective ethics practice and highly sensitive ethics radar. Had he reflected on the ethical dimensions of the boundary challenges that emerged when he interacted with his friend and hospital patient, it is likely that this well-meaning practitioner would have avoided his unpleasant encounter with the human resources department. The social worker’s decision to visit his friend was not the error; that was a humane and compassionate gesture. The error, rather, was not reflecting on his role in that moment and managing the boundaries carefully, including discussing them with his friend and his supervisor.

    In my experience, ethics-related reflection-in-action entails three key elements.

    Knowledge: Skillful management of many ethical dilemmas requires knowledge of core concepts and prevailing standards. Ethics concepts are addressed in professional literature and standards exist in several forms, including relevant codes of ethics, agency policies, statutes, and regulations. For example, the National Association of Social Workers’ Codeof Ethics includes explicit standards pertaining to boundaries, dual relationships, and conflicts of interest (especially section 1.06). It would have been best for the hospital-based social worker to consult relevant literature and standards with regard to conflicts that can arise when a social worker encounters a friend or social acquaintance in the work setting. The hospital’s personnel policies also prohibit dual relationships that involve conflicts of interest.

    In some cases, although not all, statutes and regulations address ethical issues. In the United States, both federal and state laws address various ethical issues, such as confidentiality, privileged communication, informed consent, and social workers’ ethical conduct. Such laws would not have been particularly helpful in the hospital social worker’s case, but often they are helpful and critically important, for example, when social workers must decide whether to disclose confidential information without clients’ consent to protect a third party from harm or whether parental consent is necessary to provide services to minors who seek help with substance abuse but insist that this information be withheld from their parents.

    Transparency: Reflective social workers who sense an ethical issue share their concern with supervisors, colleagues, and appropriate administrators. An effective way to protect clients and practitioners alike is to avoid any suggestion that the ethical issue is being handled “in the dark.” Such clarity demonstrates social workers’ good faith efforts to manage ethical dilemmas responsibly. When appropriate, clients should be included in the conversation.

    Process: Although some ethical decisions are clear-cut, many are not. The hospital social worker who contacted me was unsure about the best way to manage his involvement with a good friend who had become a patient. Unfortunately, the social worker did not notify his supervisor about the dilemma or seek consultation. He documented his lengthy hospital-room encounter with the patient, but doing so in the client’s hospital chart created the impression that the social worker was functioning in his professional capacity, not as a friend. My hunch is that had the social worker notified his supervisor of his friendship with the patient and made clear that any contact with the patient occurred as a friend, the social worker may have avoided any adverse personnel issues. What I have learned is that many ethical decisions are not simple events; they require a considerable, often painstaking, process.

    During the course of the profession’s history, social workers have refined the art of reflective practice. Historically, these skills have been applied primarily to clinical, policy, advocacy, and administrative functions. Clearly, reflective practice should extend to ethics as well.

    — Frederic G. Reamer, PhD, is a professor in the graduate program of the School of Social Work, Rhode Island College. He is the author of many books and articles, and his research has addressed mental health, healthcare, criminal justice, and professional ethics.

    Clinical Psychology #sas, #school #of #arts #and #sciences, #rutgers #university, #state


    The clinical science program at Rutgers is designed for students with a primary interest in research and scholarship in addition to clinical practice. The majority of the faculty have a cognitive or behavioral approach to assessment and treatment, and the program is geared primarily to students who wish to receive this type of training. There are also more limited opportunities for students whose interests are eclectic and who may supplement training in cognitive behavior therapy with courses and supervised experiences in other approaches (e.g. family systems). For students whose primary interests are in the practice of clinical psychology, the University also offers graduate training in clinical psychology leading to the Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degree through the separate Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP).

    The Clinical Ph.D. program at Rutgers University has been an American Psychological Association accredited training program since 1965. Questions about APA accreditation status can be directed to the program or to the APA Office on Accreditation at (202) 336-5979, or by mail at 750 First St. NE, Washington, DC 20002-4242

    We are a member of the Academy of Psychological Clinical Science, a coalition of doctoral and internship training programs that share a common goal of producing and applying scientific knowledge to the assessment, understanding, and amelioration of human problems. Membership in the Academy is granted only after a thorough peer review process. The Rutgers Clinical Ph.D. program was recently accredited by the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System, as well. Our membership in the Academy and accreditation by the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System indicates that we are committed to excellence in scientific training, and to using clinical science as the foundation for design, implementing, and evaluating assessment and intervention procedures. We view clinical psychology as a specialty area within the discipline of psychology, and believe that research, scholarship, and clinical application should be firmly grounded in the core knowledge base of psychology as a science.

    The core clinical faculty are drawn from the Department of Psychology, the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology. the Center of Alcohol Studies. and the adjacent Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. The breadth of faculty interests and expertise in research permits students to create a program of study tailored to their particular scholarly interests. Clinical faculty conduct research on cognitive and behavior therapies, health psychology, psychophysiology, applied behavior analysis, prevention, substance abuse, emotional intelligence, cognitive functioning, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, and autism. Students have the opportunity to work with child, adolescent, adult, and older adult populations in multiple research labs at Rutgers and affiliated institutions.

    The training approach relies heavily upon a mentorship model of training. Students are matched with a research mentor when they begin their graduate training program, and involve themselves in one or more research projects upon entering the program, initially as apprentices in ongoing projects, and subsequently as independent investigators. Students may study not only with clinical psychology faculty, but also with non-clinical researchers in the Psychology Department, and it is not uncommon for students to participate in more than one research group. Equally important is the goal of helping students to develop clinical skills. As in the research component of the program, our philosophy is that an apprenticeship model is most effective in teaching clinical skills. Students have available as role models a large number of faculty members who embody the clinical scientist concept. These faculty not only conduct research, but also are experienced clinical psychologists who are directly involved in clinical practice of various kinds. Students also have access to doctoral faculty in the Psy.D. program who focus primarily on clinical practice.

    Our graduates consistently score well on the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) exam and the vast majority go on to attain licensure to practice psychology. Despite this, our program is primarily a research-focused program and is not a good match for students interested in careers focused primarily on clinical service delivery. For additional information about Clinical Ph.D. program selection and admissions procedures, please see a website that provides information and resources that may be helpful in your graduate school selection process.

    Down Syndrome Treatments #down #syndrome #treatments, #early #intervention, #individualized #education #program,


    What Are the Treatments for Down Syndrome?

    If your child is born with Down syndrome. you want to be able to make informed choices about treatments that can help your little one thrive.

    Because Down syndrome affects everyone who has it in different ways, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. But doctors do know that the earlier children get care, the more likely they are to live up to their full potential.

    Your child may need help in different ways, from crawling and walking to talking and learning how to be social. She may also need extra attention in school. And she may have medical issues that need regular care.

    You’ll likely rely on a team of providers, including your child’s main doctor, and maybe specialists like ear doctors, heart doctors, and others. Your child may also work with physical, occupational, and speech therapists.

    Early Intervention

    Most states offer programs that provide a range of services for children up to 3 years old. These programs can boost your child’s physical and mental growth. They typically have therapists and teachers who are specially trained to help kids learn a variety of skills, such as how to:

    • Feed and dress themselves
    • Roll over, crawl, and walk
    • Play and be around other people
    • Think and solve problems
    • Talk, listen, and understand others

    Help in School

    Many kids with Down syndrome go to their neighborhood schools along with all the other kids. This can be great not only for your child, but for the other children as well.

    Your child also has the right to get services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which starts at age 3. IDEA requires public schools to offer the best education they can, no matter what challenges a person faces.

    As part of this effort, you’ll work with the school to develop an individualized education program (IEP). This helps make sure your child gets support that suits her needs. It may include things like working with a reading specialist or speech therapist.

    While public schools work great for many children, there other types of schools that focus more on the needs of kids with Down syndrome. Your child’s doctors, therapists, and teachers can help figure out which is best for her.


    Medical Treatment

    Some health problems are more common in kids with Down syndrome. Many children don’t have them, but if yours does, you can get treatment for:

    Hearing loss . Many children with Down syndrome have hearing loss in one or both ears. Because of that, your child will likely have regular visits with an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor to catch any issues early on. Sometimes hearing problems are caused by fluid build-up in the ears. In that case, ear tubes — which many children get if they have constant ear infections –can help.

    Problems seeing. Issues with eyesight are also common. Your child will have regular check-ups with an eye doctor and may need glasses, surgery, or other treatment. It’s important to keep up with ear and eye exams. because problems seeing and hearing can lead to delays in learning and talking.

    Heart problems. About half the babies born with Down syndrome have a problem with either the shape of their heart or how it works. Some conditions are more serious than others and require surgery. In other cases, your child may need to take medicine.

    Obstructive sleep apnea. This is a condition where a person’s breathing stops and restarts many times as they sleep. Typically, a child with Down syndrome gets checked for sleep apnea by age 4. During an overnight sleep test, doctors check to see if your child’s breathing stops and restarts. If so, she may need to wear a mask while sleeping. The mask is attached to a machine that helps her breathe normally. Sometimes, larger-than-normal tonsils and adenoids cause sleep apnea. In this case, your doctor may suggest surgery to remove them.

    Leukemia. Children with Down syndrome are at a 10- to 20-fold increase for developing this blood cancer. But the risk is still at 2%. Leukemia is curable.

    Thyroid. Thyroid disorders are more prevalent in children with Down syndrome.

    Other medical problems. Your child may also have other less common issues that need treatment, such as:

    • Blockage in the intestine. Some babies with Down syndrome get Hirschsprung ’s disease, where part of the intestine gets blocked. This is treated with surgery that removes part of the intestine.
    • Infections. Babies with Down syndrome also have weaker immune systems, so they may get sick more often. There’s no treatment for this, but it means that getting vaccines on time is even more important.
    • Thyroid problems . The thyroid makes hormones your body need. In kids with Down syndrome, it sometimes doesn’t make enough. If that happens, your child will take medicine to help.

    Information About Doctoral Education and Scholarship Programs #education #doctoral #programs


    How to Access the Funding You Need for Post Graduate Studies

    Scholarships for Doctoral Students

    Undergraduate tuition and other expenses associated with earning certificates, associate s and bachelor s degrees create financial hurdles for college families. Solutions for funding higher education at the baccalaureate level include Pell Grants and federally-sponsored Direct Student Loans. For students who forge-onward to earn advanced credentials, education debt challenges continue to mount during graduate school and beyond.

    Like undergrads, professional students and doctoral candidates rely on a variety of financial aid provisions to help meet education expenses. The Federal Government is a prime source of aid for post-graduate education financing. State departments of education also bolster access to master s and PhD studies by issuing state-specific aid for advanced studies.

    Private scholarships are issued by sources that each have unique intentions for their educational funding contributions. Foundations and religious entities put forth graduate school aid for students enrolled in certain programs. Community groups and local businesses support future leaders using educational subsidies that help train doctoral students. Professional organizations, representing particular vocations, foster excellence in their fields by funding advanced education. Similarly, employers invest in educating people who work for them, ensuring steady flows of well-trained human resources.

    Universities and degree-granting institutions of higher education control large pools of financial aid for graduate students. Endowments and fellowships provide valuable resources for eligible candidates, so your chosen campus is square-one for post-graduate student assistance.

    Federal Help

    Federal PLUS Loans are issued to graduate students who have demonstrable financial need paying for graduate school. The loan initiative is an extension of the Federal Direct Student Loan Program, so the U.S. Department of Education is the lender for PLUS loans. PLUS loans are available in amounts up to the total of the cost of each successful applicant s tuition. Low fixed interest rates for qualified borrowers are currently around 7.9%. Adverse credit entries work against your eligibility for PLUS loans, so remember that credit counts when it comes to this form of federal aid.

    Securing any form of federal student assistance starts by filing a standardized request form with the Department of Education. The Free Application for Federal Student Assistance (FAFSA) is a familiar form for undergraduates who have participated in Pell, FSEOG. Direct Loans and other federally-sponsored college aid initiatives. The protocol is the same for graduate students as for undergrads: Always file your FAFSA well before the final deadline. States that use the FAFSA as a financial discovery tool impose their own unique filing deadlines, so consider where your money is coming from as you establish your financial aid timetable. Filing early leaves time for you to make corrections and to submit additional documentation that may be required to clarify your aid request.

    An important distinction exists for many graduate level students: Most advanced degree seekers file the FAFSA as independent applicants. The declaration means parents financial status is not considered as part of the financial aid formula that decides who gets what. As a result, cash strapped graduate students often secure larger financial aid awards based on their individual fiscal standings.

    University Fellowships Fund Education for Many PhD Candidates

    Graduate universities are primary sources for scholarship funds. Colleges are aware that advanced degrees cost money, but they also want to attract the best available talent to attend their schools. As a result, institutions of higher learning initiate scholarships and other financial aid efforts to bring desirable academic candidates into their doctoral programs.

    The sticker-price of your graduate school education is mitigated by campus-specific aid programs including scholarships, grants and loans. In addition to familiar undergraduate-types of aid, graduate students employed on campus use fellowships and teaching assistant positions to earn valuable tuition offsets that ease the financial impact of training for specialized careers.

    Columbia College in the City of New York uses its Office of Global Programs to help students land graduate school fellowships. Two full-time staffers are charged with matching students with financial opportunities that help them advance their academic, intellectual, and professional goals. The group specializes in preparing candidates for interviews and helps students find less-traveled avenues for financial assistance.

    Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin issues about 50 fellowships annually, to students who need on-site access to the school s extensive collections of humanities artifacts. Collections of classic literature, photographs and art are house on campus alongside significant film, music and culturally historic pieces. Each fellowship ranges from 1-3 months, with $3000 stipends awarded for each month of research conducted.

    The Lilly Library, at Indiana University in Bloomington hosts several visiting fellowships for students interested in the school s collections of rare books and other materials. Mendel Fellowships and Everett Helm Fellowships grant access to historical collections of prized literature related to exploration, education and religion.

    Doctoral Scholarships in Academic and Research Fields

    Graduate work is primarily research related, which requires time and access to the materials to be studied. To help ease financial strain during advanced research work, private sources cooperate with educational institutions to provide scholarships and fellowships for needy researchers. Broad aid is provided within fields like social sciences. but focused fellowships also target specialties like economics. linguistics. and middle eastern studies – each of which produces graduate level professionals. Physical and life sciences include graduate school research projects in sub-specialties like genomics. biotechnology. neurobiology. and physiology.

    Our preschool teacher just sent us homework with this new website on it! My twins love it – they are 4 1/2 and can’t get enough! The sounds, the action, so many choices and things to do. I bookmarked this for them and have sent the website to numerous friends and best of all it’s FREE!
    Thank you for such a wonderful learning tool. — -Cherie Ventola

    Let me say that you guys have an awesome website. I stumbled across your site one day, and it has been the easiest, most effective, and really the most fun method for learning geography that I’ve found. –David Weaver

The games are colorful and simple, not cluttered like some. The instructions are easy to understand and they cover basic learning that can be neglected with other “too busy” games. I can’t believe what a blessing it is to have stumbled upon this site! I looked up “kindergarten math games online.” This is the first one that I actually enjoyed navigating around in and that actually kept the kids’ attention without discouraging them.

    This site will be a daily part of our learning! The kids were fighting over who could take the next turn at the learning game! It is reinforcing everything I am trying to teach.

    Forensic Psychologist: Education Requirements and Career Information #forensic #psycology, #forensic #psychologist:


    Forensic Psychologist: Education Requirements and Career Information

    Education Requirements for Forensic Psychologists

    While a forensic psychologist may find work with only a Master’s degree, a Ph.D. in psychology or a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degree is recommended. Licensing is essential for all practicing psychologists and can be obtained by taking examinations through the state psychologist licensing board. The American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) classifies forensic psychology as a recognized specialty and offers certification examinations.

    To become a forensic psychologist, it is beneficial to have a minor in law. Some forensic psychologists have doctorates in both psychology and law. Because the application of forensic psychology deals specifically with how psychology works with the law, most jobs require varying levels of legal studies. This is a relatively new facet of psychology and forensic psychologists are encouraged to participate in continuing education programs throughout their careers.

    Career Information for Forensic Psychologists

    There are a variety of paths a forensic psychologist may take. Some work specifically with crime victims. A forensic psychologist counsels rape and abuse victims of all ages before, during and after court trials. They also assist victims in dealing with the stress of reliving the crime when the victims appear on the witness stand. On occasion, the forensic psychologist will testify as an expert witness to explain to a judge and jury the effects of the crime on the victim.

    Other forensic psychologists work with the accused. These psychologists consult with persons being charged with crimes and assess the competency levels of the accused. The forensic psychologist often determines whether or not the accused has a clear enough understanding of right and wrong to stand trial. They may make a recommendation to a judge that the accused be sent to an institution for therapy prior to or in lieu of a court trial. These psychologists also work with those who have been convicted of crimes if part of the sentence includes rehabilitative therapy.

    Some forensic psychologists go into private practice and work as consultants, but this is rare. Others have opportunities in research facilities. Primarily, forensic psychologists work in correctional facilities, law enforcement agencies and mental health institutions. They may also be members of law and psychology departments in an academic setting. Or, community health organizations and probation departments may employ forensic psychologists.

    According to as of January 2016, the median annual salary for forensic psychologists was $61,489. This is significantly lower than the median reported in May 2015 by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (the BLS) for all types of psychologists at $94,590. According to the BLS, job growth for all types of psychologists, a group which includes forensic psychologists, was expected to increase by 19% between 2014 and 2024. Since most jobs available to forensic scientists are government and law enforcement related, salaries are often determined by federal, state and local budgetary concerns. Florida and California are the favored employers geographically.

    A forensic psychologist can work within a few industries, such as law or healthcare, where they are commonly responsible for assessing an accused criminal’s psychological state and determining whether the accused is fit to stand trial. Alternatively, many forensic psychologists work with victims of a crime such as rape or abuse. A forensic psychologist often provides counseling services for victims and accused criminals, depending on their specialty.
