This paper will discuss the effects of abortion on the women who have this procedure. For many cultures abortion is a horrible act. It is considered murder of an unborn human being. In today`s society many people still consider abortion to be an unethical practice and dangerous procedure. It is a typical conflict theory argument of social problems in today’s society. It is a conflict in society because it comes down to peoples ethical and religious stand point that is what makes up the conflict. Ethical is either it right because the fetus is in the women’s body and its her choice to choose if she wants to be a mom or not. The other side of the ethics argument czn stem from religious as well it is a life and murdering an unborn baby is wrong. There are two groups of people who fight to sway the law makers to their side the pro abortionist group and the antiabortion group (Henslin, J. M. 2011). These are commonly known as the prolife and prochoice groups. Many people though when you use these terms don’t take the group seriously they considered these people radicals. There are protesters who believe they are standing up for the unborn by murdering abortion doctors and burning down abortion clinics. The vigil-anti`s think this is justifiable due to the fact that abortion doctors are taking innocent lives and without the clinic there would be no place to have an abortion. The pro-choice group believes that abortion is ethical and a upright standard procedure because the fetus is still inside a women’s body and that because of that fact it is her body and her choice to say if she wants to bring a life into this world. Each side believes that they are right and both groups consider themselves right and fair to everyone because of the…...

...and not be a follower. I was a cool person majority liked me. Outside the school was were the drama occurred. High school kids would come to our school to start fights, rob the kids, or start any type of trouble. The neighborhood was filled with troublemakers. A lot of the kids were school drop-outs, or on drugs. It was madness! At that age you don't want to seem excluded or you have to deal with abuse and harassment. My mother always told to surround myself with people who have respect for themselves and others. She didn't want me up in all the guys face and around no fast girls either. Sometimes my mother would say things and she would think I wasn't listening. That wasn't the case . On page 25, it states "Similarly, the bioecological approach illustrates that the influences among different family members is all multidirectional. Parents don't just influence their child's behavior the child also influences the parents behavior."(Feldman, 2011). I agree with that statement because I was not a dumb founded teenager compared to most, I was smart, I had a lot going for myself to be young and I knew about a lot. My mother always taught me to be a leader not a follower and she taught me many different skills at a young age. A lot of my friends didn't know how to handle different situations and I helped them. The friends that I did have were about 5-6 girls. My mother and grandparents only liked a few out the bunch for certain reasons and didn't prefer the rest for......

Applying the Bioecological Theory of Human Development to learning: Enhancing student engagement in online learning. Dr Lindsay Smith University of Tasmania, Launceston, Australia L.M.Smith@utas.edu.au Abstract: This paper explores the application of the bioecological theory of human development to online learning and teaching. Bioecological theory advocates that by strengthening human relationships within supportive environments it is possible to increase the extent of development realised into positive outcomes. Likewise through strengthening human connectedness in supportive online learning environments, it is possible to increase the extent of learning realised into positive outcomes. In online learning environments, developing strategies that facilitate engagement is a key to strengthening learning outcomes. Through understanding the processes that inspire human development, our understanding of the processes that inspire online learning are advanced. Key words: bioecology, student engagement, online learning and teaching By enhancing proximal processes and environments, it is possible to increase the extent of actualised genetic potentials for developmental competence......

...The term "human growth and development" is used to explain the changes a person will undertake from cradle to grave. These changes include; physical, emotional, social and intelligence changes and will cover life events such as bereavement and loss. Through the discussion on each theory, this essay will demonstrate how both environmental and genetic factor influence the development of a child or adult and how life events can disrupt the normal development of a person. Deviance from the normal course of development can cause crisis events in a person's life and it is because of these, social work intervention may be required. It is important for a social worker to understand how people develop and comprehend how life events can impact a person's quality of life and their interaction with society. This can be done through the application of development and learning theories. It is also important to understand that each person is an individual and that past life events do not always have the negative outcomes as discussed with each theory. In the Origin of the Species, Darwin (1859) set out his ubiquitous theory of genetics and how living things are influenced by genetic makeup rather than their environment. His book was the starting point for the controversial argument of nature verses nurture. This debate is one of the longest running in terms of human growth and development and is relatively simple. The theory puts forward an argument to try and explain one of the most......

... Human Development Name Institution Instructor 55. There are several models (theories) of middle age, among which is the “crisis model” and the “transition model”. Which do you agree with more, based on what you know about these theories and what you have observed? The crisis model postulates that when an individual is faced with an overwhelming threat they cannot handle, they will either adapt by developing new coping skills or they will be overwhelmed by the crisis to the point of requiring external intervention (Baltes and Baltes, 2014). Failure to cope with this occurrence can result in a crisis that lasts between 4 -6 weeks. Similarly, the transition model seeks to understand how a person responds to changes in their life or environment and postulate most of these changes involve transition periods that lasts between 6 and 12 months. The transition periods present window periods for growth or pose serious hazards to the concerned individual. Most people reacting to changes in their lives or immediate environment (positive or negative) to require and adjustment period that can last up to a year as I have observed and thereby concur with the transition model. 56. What changes in physical functions are associated with the middle adult years? Do you think men or women are affected most by these changes? People at this stage of life often experience a decline in strength, reaction time, fine motor skills as well as a decreased sensation. They develop skin wrinkles, have......

...Andrea Yates Bonnie Adams PSY-303 Michelle Robison Andrea Yates was well educated woman in nursing. The moment she married her husband she knew she wanted as many children as nature would allow them to have. Andrea Yates gave birth to four boys and one girl of the period of years. Overtime she was diagnosed with postpartum depression. Her illness got worse as time went on and she became a danger to herself and children. Andrea Yates was a religious woman and was very dedicated to her children. She had five children aging from seven years old to six-months old. She home schooled her children and followed her religion closely. After the birth of her fourth child her illness became worse and attempted suicide on several occasions. She was diagnosed postpartum psychosis. She was hearing voices and thought her children would be tormented by Satan. She was in and out of the hospital over the years for being psychotic and having thoughts and feelings that she could not control. She was given medication for her illness but would not take it properly or thought it did not help her. I think staying home with her five children and home schooling them did not help her illness at all. Being confined at home all the time and having no time to herself make her illness worse. Her behavior should have been noticed by her husband or loved ones that spent time with her. I think if she would have went back to her career and sent her children to a public school things......

Bioecological Model of Human Development

...Name of paper Felicia Hughes Child Family & Society: SOC312 Melda Gaskins Date submitted Introduction Urie Bronfenbrenner led to the development of the ecological theories that shape development. He depicts four systems that contain norms, rules and norms that influence a child’s development. Renamed ‘bioecological systems theory’, emphasis is that the biological changes in a child are the primary sources of any development while the external factors are huge contributors ‘will steer the development’, (Addison, J.T, 1992). It has been held that the body supports and directs all body actions and operations influenced by the outward interaction with the environment. The microsystem encompasses the relationships and interactions a child has with her immediate surroundings (Berk, 2000). Structures in the microsystem include family, school, neighborhood, or childcare environments. At this level, relationships have impact in two directions - both away from the child and toward the child. For example, a child’s parents may affect his beliefs and behavior; however, the child also affects the behavior and beliefs of the parent. Bronfenbrenner calls these bi-directional influences, and he shows how they occur among all levels of environment. The interaction of structures within a layer and interactions of structures between layers is key to this theory. At the microsystem level, bi-directional influences are strongest and have the greatest impact on the child. However...

...a Venn diagram (two overlapping circles) comparing their safe places to Esperanza's. Analyze Sandra Cisneros's style in the story “Hairs”. Point out to students that she appeals to the senses and the emotions. Ask students to look at her sentences. “Are they all complete sentences?” (No.) “Incomplete sentences are called fragments. Why do you think she used fragments in this story?” Help students see that Cisneros purposely used fragments to create the voice of a little girl. Explain to students that in academic writing fragments are not acceptable, but in creative writing, the author can use them for voice. Now students will practice writing in the computer lab with a child's voice about their own safe places. They can use “Hairs” as a model for their writing. (A different option for this assignment is to assign each student a different topic from the following list: arms, voices, mouths, hugs, feet, laughs, eyes, noses, ears, hands, smiles, teeth) See “HAIRS ESSAYS”(for examples of student writing. Have students peer edit each other's papers for content: emotions and 5 senses. Have students edit a new classmate's paper for voice: Does it sound like a child wrote this? Students should write a suggestion for change if they feel it doesn't have a child's voice. (BEWARE: You may have a student or two who would like to give this essay a different voice. As long as they can explain whose voice they are using, let them “tweak” the assignment.)Pass out the first of many copies of......

To understand the conceptual framework of the bioecological model of human development by Urie Bronfenbrenner, and how it influences children using effective guides of understanding, and building the concept of providing theories of four basic concepts of the model which are microsystem, mesosystem, exosystem, and macrosystem. The four basic structures is a guide of the bioecological model of the human development. This take into effect of children, families, community, schools, peer group and media, culture, and economics. These setting give experience of growth using the model. The first one is microsystem and when you look at the word micro it means small. This starts with the family and the settings that are provided for the child. There is the nuclear family and then it extends as life progress. However, the family relationship is based off the microsystem for understanding a child development. The second structure is mesosystem. The meso system means intermediate. This involves other people for linkage. The third structure is exosystem this is not participating. This can come from a parent or child. The forth basic structure......

The recent warming of our planet has several apparent causes. In its 2001 report, the Intergovernmental Panel on climate change stated, there is new and stronger evidence that most of the warming over the last 50 years is attributed to human activities (http://www.ucsusa.org/global). Green House Gases Green house gases act as a blanket locking in heat emissions affecting the earth’s climate. Human acts such as; burning fossil fuels and energy for deforestation is large contributors to an increase in green house gases. Humans are pouring carbon dioxide (CO2) in to the atmosphere much faster than plants and oceans can absorb it. This has been going on for years and because of the build up of emissions, it is impossible to prevent global warming. Deforestation Deforestation causes extinction in......
