definition of Theme

The definition of Theme is often abridged to “the main idea.” However, Theme is more involved than that. Essentially, a theme is the author’s message–what the author wants to tell his/her readers about people in general. Themes can be supported by many of the story’s components, particularly the characters’ words, actions, and conflicts.Initial response: One of the best ways to analyze theme is to look at it through children’s literature. For this response, think of a children’s story/book and analyze what the theme is. What is the author trying to tell children about life? About people?

  • What story are you choosing? If you can find a link to the book or story, please post this.
  • Provide a brief summary of the story (be careful about cutting and pasting. Please use your own words)
  • What do you feel is the theme of this story and WHY?
  • Be sure to include text examples with your response
  • End your response by asking a question of your classmates

Which Type of Memory Do You Use Most?

In the chapter on remembering and forgetting, the author cites several different types of information that reside in memory.  Episodic memories are composed of particular events that happen to someone personally.  Semantic memories are essentially “general knowledge.”  Procedural memory is our knowledge about how to do things, like ride a bike.

Think about these three types of memory and how you use each on an everyday basis.  List a few examples of each, taken from your daily life.  Which of these types of memory do you think is the most important?  the least important?  Explain.

What is the Effect of Maternal Stress During Pregnancy on the Cognitive Development of Children?

I need a 10 page paper (without counting the reference and title page) on the following subject: “What is the Effect of Maternal Stress During Pregnancy on the Cognitive Development of Children?”

I attached a sample of the method section, results and discussion.

The method section will include three sections: Participants, Measures, and Procedure.  If proposing survey research, you must select reliable/valid measures and these measures must be attached to your submission.  Resources for locating measures will be available in the course and you may also contact your instructor for guidance.  If proposing an experiment, a detailed research protocol should be included.

The project results section should include a description of which statistics you will use to test your hypothesis.  The discussion section should include possible outcomes as well as possible limitations that you might encounter.

The final paper will include all sections of the paper including the title page, abstract, literature review with hypothesis, method section, project results, discussion, references, IRB application, and any measures that you plan to include.  The final proposal should include application of the core value- Respect.

The literature review is already done and I have attached that as well.

I will do the IRB application.

examine the state’s role in educational policy at the PK-12 or higher education level.

Turnitin®Turnitin® enabledThis assignment will be submitted to Turnitin®.Instructions

This week, you will examine the state’s role in educational policy at the PK-12 or higher education level.

Access the website for your state’s department of PK-12 education or  higher education based on your professional preference. Every state  should have a website for each of these organizations. Some example of PK-12 and higher education state department sites are provided in the resources for this week.

In this assignment, you will compare and contrast state education  policy at either the PK-12 or higher education level by accessing  websites for three states. One of the states must be your own  and the other states must be bordering your state (or at least in your  region of the U.S.—Hawaii and Alaska residents may choose any other two  states). International students may choose a state that they would like  to visit plus 2 bordering states; or select 3 regions from their  location.

For this two-part assignment you will address the following:

Part I:

Write at least one paragraph for each state noting the following—What  is each state saying about policy? Legislative news? What seems to be  the focus or what seems to be important?

In your next paragraphs, compare and contrast the states. You may  focus on areas of emphasis or areas of disagreement or discrepancy. In  other words, what is the policy related items that you saw for one state  that you didn’t see for another state?

Part II:

Find a news article from your state or local news or a video in which  the leader of your states department of PK-12 or higher education has  been interviewed or is making a statement. What is the leader saying?  Write 1-2 paragraphs discussing what the leader has stated, how that  relates to any policy initiatives or news items on the state’s website,  how you view the leader’s comments, and the impact of that leader on  your state.

This should be simple to do using the state of Kansas an example.  Let’s assume that you are conducting Part I of this assignment from the  state of Kansas as a PK-12 educator. As of summer 2018, the commissioner  of education is Randy Watson. Here is an example of an article in which  he issues public comments:

Hancock, P. (2017, October 18). Kansas schools may no longer group students by grade level as part of plan to remake education system. LJWorld.com [Blog].

Note: If you are unable to find a resource to complete this  assignment for your state, you may use another state. Please note to  your instructor that you have had to use another state.

Length: 3-5 pages not including reference pages

Resources: Support your paper with at least 2-4 scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.

Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the  ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and  insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should  reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere  to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Factors Influencing Utilization of Public Mental Health Services

Problem Statement and Research Questions

The process of articulating a problem statement and the related research questions requires a significant amount of reading and reflection. Doctoral learners at this point in the program must consider a problem to research for the dissertation and begin to articulate that problem. In this assignment, you will articulate a potential problem statement for your dissertation research and pose several potential research questions that could address the problem statement. Please note that a passing score on this assignment does not indicate an approved problem statement or research questions. You will work with your dissertation chair and methodologist to further refine and focus these items once you enter the dissertation phase of the program.

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

· Refer to the topic you presented in a previous course.

  • TOPIC: Factors Influencing Utilization of Public Mental Health Services
  • Please find ATTACHED- 10 Strategic Points with already used Research Questions and Problem Statement and many more useful information.

· Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments.

· Refer to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association for specific guidelines related to doctoral level writing. The Manual contains essential information on manuscript structure and content, clear and concise writing, and academic grammar and usage.

Directions:
Write a paper (750 – 1,000 words) in which you articulate a potential problem statement for your dissertation research and pose several potential research questions that could address the problem statement. Include the following in your paper:

1. A clearly articulated and focused potential problem statement for the dissertation study you might conduct. What is the area of research you intend to explore? What are the key concepts of your focus? What is the context of the problem? Who are the subjects of this research focus?

2. A research-supported rationale for exploring the problem. What is the need or defined gap as supported by at least four current and relevant sources of research literature?

3. Four potential research questions that could guide your collection of data in addressing the problem statement. Reflect upon the who, what, where, when, why, and how of the problem statement to gain a broader perspective on the problem statement. What analytical questions need to be asked related to the data that must be collected to address the defined gap? Articulate these ideas into research questions that focus on the relevant data that needs to be collected.
