Reflective Analysis: Accommodations and Modifications Teaching students with special needs is a challenge and requires dedication. I have always been told that as a teacher you are either going to love teaching children with special needs or you don’t. I feel that it is vitally important to know what you are facing when having to work with this population of people. Disabled students are very unique in their own way and require special attention to be able to address concerns in a way that it is beneficial to the student. Considering that each student learns differently, there are many teaching styles that can be used to help disabled students to learn. Also as a teacher you must evaluate the student so that you are able to know whether or not accommodations and modifications are needed in order to help the student to learn as much as possible. During the assignment, I had to do fifteen hours of observation hours in either an inclusive or self-contained classroom setting. So I notified a school and was able to do these hours in a self-contained classroom. During this week, state tests were being administered in the regular education class, so therefore the inclusive classrooms weren’t available. Special education students are required to take state test as well, but they have a test that’s been modified to the needs of the students. In this classroom there were five students. Each of these students was deemed disabled according to the requirements of IDEA. Just form observation, I could tell that one of the students had downs syndrome just from their facial appearance. Each student had their own working space. There were large print pictures on the wall, two computers other than the teacher’s computer…...

...with respect to construction cost, sales price, and also profits. There were several reasons taken into considerations throughout the difference of these two types of unit. Commercial units have higher demand than residential units do as shown in Table 4.1.2. This is generally due to the purpose of investment as it generates more profits, compared to residential property investment. This is because commercial real estate is well thought-out as a preliminary indicator of the growth of the residential real estate market. On top of that, commercial units normally come out with low-rise building of either one or two storeys. On the ground floor there are shops, which open up to certain foot way while upstairs, it can be a residential accommodation. Nowadays, people would go for commercial units as they can run their businesses as well as to use the upper floors for residential purposes. In terms of construction cost, commercial units are cheaper than residential units because they actually have the same design as the shop offices, a row of buildings, which are linked together. 29 Thus, taking into account the single or two storey’s commercial units, single storey construction is always cheaper than two storey’s because the cost of scaffolding and transporting materials. Floors above ground are more expensive than floors on the extra beams and support required. Above ground, slabs require considerably more reinforcement and form working than slabs on ground (Presley......

Body Modification

...Body Modification: A Rising Sensation I stared in horror at the fearsome needle taunting me to challenge its glinting tip. I closed my eyes, prayed with every cell in my body for the pain to be minimal, and grimaced as she expertly twirled the needle between her fingers and then slid it through my flesh in one fluid motion. When I took a peek, I gaped cross-eyed at the foreign object jutting out of my nose and smiled. I don’t remember what state of mind I was in when I walked into the parlor, but I left victorious! Throughout history, people have decorated and modified the appearance of their bodies in many different ways. Nostril piercings are thought to have been adopted into the noble castes in the Middle East almost 4000 years ago. Nowadays, nostril piercings have been adopted by Christina Aguilera. In South America, Aztec and Mayan priests pierced their tongues as part of a ritual to communicate with their gods. In several African tribes, the beauty of women was determined by the size of plates that were fitted into their upper lips. In ancient civilizations of Egypt, a “perfect belly button” could elevate someone’s social standing. At that time, only Pharaohs and royal families could pierce their navels. Anyone else was promptly executed. A “perfect belly button”, however, could be a peasant’s ticket to a better life. The ancient Romans pierced their nipples (ouch) to show their strength and endurance. It is also theorized that their nipple jewelry held......

On Reasonable Accommodation

...On Reasonable Accommodation INTRODUCTION Our modern society has long been governed by classic liberal notions advocated by thinkers such as John Stuart Mill and John Locke, Emmanuel Kant. A traditional conception of equality is generally prioritized in their work, outlining a highly formal approach premised on uniform treatment, colour-blindness and an emphasis on the Rule of Law. However, in the contemporary context of today, such an ideological hope tends to play the role of the ignorant fool, who disregards the complexity of our society. We are in need of a system that opens its eyes, stops hiding behind a “veil of ignorance” (Sandel, 1998:24) and adopts a more flexible approach. The Bouchard – Taylor Commission demonstrates exactly this notion. This essay will argue in favour of one of the major claims made by Gerard Bouchard & Charles Taylor, that reasonable accommodation, in essence a more substantive equality perspective is a necessary, if not mandatory approach that a multicultural society is in dire need of adopting, clarifying and deeply enforcing. I will discuss the logic and rational that underpins harmonization measures by exploring how social norms & ideologies have played an especially important role is systemic discrimination, then, how Canadian Law and legal institutions have played a role in constructing and maintaining racial stereotypes, and then, how the media plays an especially vital role in further denouncing minority groups. I will then......

...Acceptance of Body Modifications Acceptance of Body Modifications The acceptance of body modifications is a very big problem today. People that modify their body aren't being completely accepted in society. There are some cases where it is accepted but it is mostly frowned upon. Understanding is the first step to acceptance so it is my goal to help everyone understand. Body modifications are a big part in my life even if it doesn't seem like it. I stretch my ears and to me that is a big deal and it is something that I really enjoy. There are so many different reasons that people modify their body. Some people do it in order to fit in and others do it to be different. One big problem I have noticed about having body modifications is trying to get a job is a lot more difficult. This shouldn't be a problem though because we are all humans and no matter what any ones choice we should accept each other for what we do and who we are. The fact is that it shouldn't be more difficult to get a job when a person is modified compared to someone who isn't because body modifications don't change someones personality. In addition, everyone deserves a chance. Why would you not give someone a chance just because they look different? Furthermore, if someone is modified it is better to let them change to what they want their image to be so that they can feel comfortable in their own skin. First off, changing the way someones body looks in any way doesn't......

Ajes for private respondent.   REGALADO, J.: Petitioner seeks the annulment of the decision 1 of respondent Court of Appeals, promulgated on September 8, 1987, which reversed the decision of the trial Court 2 dismissing the complaint for consignation filed by therein plaintiff Ricardo S. Santos, Jr. The parties are substantially agreed on the following facts as found by both lower courts: In 1980, plaintiff Ricardo S. Santos, Jr. was the vice-president of Mover Enterprises, Inc. in-charge of marketing and sales; and the president of the said corporation was Atty. Oscar Z. Benares. On April 30, 1980, Atty.

Since the check was under the account of Mover Enterprises, Inc., the same was to be signed by its president, Atty. Oscar Z. Benares, and the treasurer of the said corporation.

Behaviroal Modification

...Adria Mansfield Behavioral Modification September 3, 2014 Eric ComStock While visiting my cousin we decided to go out for dinner. We decided to go to outback steak house. When we arrived there it was awfully crowded. We had a forty-five minute wait. While waiting in line I start to observe this Caucasian female. I chose her because she seemed to be very interested. For one she had bright pink hair and tattoos all over. There wasn’t a clear skin spot anywhere. While standing in line for forty-five minutes I start to observe her blinking her eyes. The reason my attention was focused on her was because she didn’t have just an ordinary blink. It appeared to be excessive blinking. Although, blinking is involuntary; which is known as a respondent behavior it’s also an automatic reflex (Lee, Axelrod, pg. 2). “Blinking is an automatic reflex that protects the eyes from dryness, bright light, and any other objects coming towards it”. Blinking regulates tears, in which they nourish and cleanse the surface of the eye” (www.aapos.org). ` The lady appeared to blink her eyes thirty times within one minute. Within the time frame of me observing her she had blinked one hundred and fifty times within five minutes. The blinking rate is 2 times per minute when you are born. By the time you reach adolescence it......

Contract Modification

...Contract ModificationText Size: | Lawyers.comsm When negotiating a contract, or after a contract has been signed, you may have reason to want to modify, or change, the contract. In general, contract modifications require the agreement of all parties to the contract. This article will discuss how to modify a contract before it's been signed and after it's been signed. A contract is legally binding agreement between two or more parties. The average adult encounters contracts many times in the course of his or her life. In many instances, these contracts may be so routine or commonplace you may not even recognize that you are a party to a contract. For example, each time you charge something to a credit card, the sales slip you sign is a contract. In other instances, a contract may be much more formal, involve significant negotiation and require an attorney to review it before it is signed. An example of this type of contract would be the contract you sign when buying a home. Modifying a Contract before Signing It To be legally binding, a contract must be agreed to by all interested parties. For example, imagine you want to buy a car, but you don't like the price that's being offered by the dealer. Even if the dealer signs the sales contract, the contract is not valid until you accept it (usually indicated by your signature). Before entering into a contract, you should carefully read it to ensure that you understand your obligations and the obligations of the other......

Body Modification

...Lip stretching is a body modification that goes back 10,000 years and had been practiced all over the world, from Siberia to South America, from the Middle East to Europe, although there is no evidence that the custom traveled from one area to another. The procedure survives only in Africa and among some Amazonian tribes in South America. The practice is seen among women in the Mursi and Surma tribes of Ethiopia. The lower lip is pierced and a peg is inserted, to be replaced with a larger peg as the skin stretches. A plate or labret is inserted when the piercing is large enough. Traditionally, this is done as a young woman prepares to marry, but is now a personal decision rather than an obligation. Skull binding has been practiced at various points in history in widespread parts of the world, with some evidence of Neanderthal skulls that had been shaped around 45,000 BCE in Iraq. The custom of head shaping has been most notable among skulls excavated in Peru, where the practice dates back 9,000 years. The skull can only be shaped during infancy. The bones eventually harden to the point that skull modification would only break the cranial bones. An infant's skull would be wrapped with cloth (sometimes with wooden boards added) to restrict its expansion sideways, causing the head to grow long and tall instead. This practice was usually restricted to the wealthier classes. Reproductions of such skulls can be purchased online. Scarification is a traditional......

...as the marketing of student housing is jointed not only with the availability but also the quality of these residential facilities. Student’s increasing expectations to nicer and more home-like accommodations (Roche et al., 2010) as well as demand for up-to-date facilities (Ryan, 2003) beside the availability of off campus housing with better provided facilities and amenities and affordable price of hiring and sharing private off campus accommodation, are the factors that can drive students from the on campus to off campus accommodations. Consequently, in near future the low monthly fee might not be a strong motivator to keep university students in on campus residence halls. Even *Corresponding author. E-mail: fatemeh.rd08@student.usm.my with ignoring of the financial benefits that universities might achieve from residing of large number of students in the residence halls, it is difficult to take no notice to the positive impacts of living on campus on the students (Araujo and James, 2010; Pike, 2009; Turley and Wodtke, 2010; Flowers, 2004 ). Hence, there is a challenge for residence hall organizers to provide students with campus housing that not only provides them with benefits of living on campus but also have the characteristics of off campus accommodations such as adequate facilities and amenities. Borrowing from the studies on housing satisfaction it is proved that convenient living facilities is one of the predictors of housing satisfaction......
