This does not need to be in APAformat. The Case of ... Keeping Your Mouth Shut Jorge Azar had immigrated with his parents to the United States from the Dominican Republic when he was 11 years old. Although Jorge had become fluent in English, he still spoke with an accent. Jorge had never felt self-conscious about it before. He'd lived most of his life in America in New York City, surrounded by dozens of different accents. Now, though, Jorge had relocated with his wife out of New York. He'd enrolled in college to earn his degree in software engineering, and he was sitting in a classroom in which he was the only Hispanic. Jorge suddenly felt nervous to open his mouth. He was sure that no matter what he said, his fellow classmates would disregard it because of his accent. Despite graduating from high school in the top of his class, Jorge was struck dumb at the idea of answering the questions his instructors asked. One day, Jorge couldn't avoid the problem anymore. In one of his programming classes, his instructor called on him by name to explain a technical term. Jorge knew what the term meant and how to explain it ... but he was afraid that as soon as he spoke, he'd be laughed at. As the moments ticked by and the class waited for Jorge's response, he started to wonder why he'd enrolled in college in the first place. 1. Can you identify with Jorge's situation? Are there aspects of yourself that you feel self-conscious about? 2. What assumptions does Jorge fear his classmates will make?


3. What assumptions about his classmates is Jorge making? 4. What advice would you give Jorge to help him feel more comfortable, not just speaking in class, but in college in general? 5. Have you ever judged someone based not on what they say, but how they say it? What did you learn from this incident, and how could you avoid it in the future? ==============================================

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com P.O.W.E.R. Learning, Ch. 1: Becoming an Expert Student ThIt was during the second week of classes that the questioning started. Until then, Jesse had been fairly confident in his decision to enroll at a college in the Denver suburbs to gain training to be a medical technician. He had been excited to try something new and to start a new career, but more and more he was wondering if he'd made the right choice. To get to campus, Jesse had to take a forty-five-minute bus ride, because his wife needed the car to get to her office in downtown Denver. Jesse was also keeping his part-time job as an executive assistant at a doctor's office, a job that meant another long commute. And on top of that, Jesse needed to find time among work, classes, and studying to help care for his five-year-old son. Maybe, Jesse was beginning to think, college hadn't been such a good idea. True, he could earn more money as a medical technician and begin a more promising career. But was it really worth all this added time and


stress? Plus, Jesse had never done very well academically. Why would college be any different? If he wanted to make more money, he could just add more shifts at his current job. Why bother with college? Jesse thought to himself. What an expense, and what a hassle. For what?e Case of Review the following questions answer in 150 word for each questions.

Do you have additional ones?

P.O.W.E.R. Learning, Ch. 8: Making Decisions and Problem Solving The Case of Erica had a problem. She and her friend Karen had found a two-bedroom apartment to share for the upcoming year. The apartment was on the expensive side, but they had decided that it was worth it because it was in a great location.


She and Karen had jointly paid the security deposit on the apartment. However, because Karen hadn't been around when it came time to sign the lease, only Erica had signed it. Consequently, Erica was legally responsible for fulfilling the terms of the lease. Now, only two weeks before they were scheduled to move in, Karen told Erica that she had realized she couldn't afford the rent and that she had decided she had to live with her parents. Erica was simultaneously furious with Karen and panicky at the thought of having to pay the rent by herself. How was she going to deal with the problem? Review the following questions answer in 150 word for each questions. This doesn’t have to be in APA format 1. Is the problem a purely financial and legal one, or are there personal and social considerations that should be taken into account in solving the problem? 2.

By the end of a term, her notebooks were so lengthy that they approached the size of telephone books from a small city. Yet despite her thorough notes, Jennifer was only a mediocre student. She was a hard worker and studied her many notes thoroughly before tests. But she never managed to get grades higher than a C+. It seemed unbelievable to her. She worked incredibly hard in class taking good notes. Why wasn't it paying off? 1. How do you think Jennifer defines "good notetaking"? 2. 3. Why does Jennifer's method of notetaking produce such poor results? What is she missing? 4. 5.

A few weeks before finishing college to get his degree in fitness training, Dale found an online job posting for an entry-level training job with the professional basketball team that played in his area. Dale had long been a fan of the team. The salary and benefits were excellent. The facility where the team trained was only ten minutes from Dale's house. In short, the job was perfect, and Dale was thrilled when, a week after submitting his résumé, he received a call about scheduling an interview. But then Dale started to get nervous. He had failed miserably at the only job interview he had ever had, for a sales position at a retail company after he finished high school. He'd actually gotten into an argument with his interviewer. What if the interview for the fitness trainer position went just as poorly? Other worries started creeping into Dale's mind. What if the interviewer asked questions about Dale's limited training experience? What if Dale forgot to mention the key experiences on his résumé? What if he wore the wrong clothes? As the interview approached, Dale went from excited to terrified. He was certain he would blow the interview. So much for my dream job, he thought. 1. What advice would you give Dale? How is this interview different from the one he experienced just after finishing high school? 2. 3. What steps could Dale take to ready himself for the interview? How could he build his confidence? 4. 5. What could Dale do to prepare for questions about his work experience? 6.

Then she began writing, opening a new file in her word processing program. Joelle worked hard, drinking coffee to help her concentrate on the paper—and to keep her eyes open. When she was about three-quarters of the way done, her computer screen suddenly froze. Joelle pushed every button she could think of, but finally had to switch her computer off and then switch it back on. She opened the file for her paper … and saw an empty page.

PSY 110 uop Week 4 Working in Diverse Groups

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com Working in Diverse Groups This week is about working in diverse groups and developing cultural competence that can help you in many scenarios. Imagine now that you have found a job opening that is looking for someone to join its diverse team. To narrow down candidates for the job, the description says candidates should be prepared to explain in a brief presentation their knowledge of how they work with others. Read Ch. 9: Diversity and Relationships to review strategies that will help prepare you for this assignment. Hint: The Connect Activities in the recommended section of this week can also help you to learn more. Working in Diverse Groups Create a 10- to 15-slide MicrosoftÂŽ PowerPointÂŽ presentation that allows you to showcase your knowledge about working in diverse groups to a potential employer. Make sure to read the information in Chapter 9 of P.O.W.E.R. Learning and Your Life. (Hint: The Connect Activities in the recommended section of this week can also help you to learn more.)


A further review of Chapter 1 and Chapter 8 will help you to recall what you discovered about your learning style and how to solve problems. Here is a guideline for developing your presentation: 1. The first slide should be a title slide for the presentation. 2. An introduction slide should come after the title slide. This slide should allow you to introduce the topics you will be discussing. 3. For the next two to three slides, discuss what topics from Weeks 1 through 3 that might help you when working in diverse groups. For example, you could talk about learning styles, and how that might impact your work in a group or work assignment versus in an individual assignment. (Tip: Think about information that was covered in Week 2 when covering this portion.) 4. For your next two to three slides, explain how developing cultural competence can be useful to you when working with others in school? How can it be advantageous in the workplace? What two or three strategies can you use to become more culturally competent? (Tip: Refer to the section, "Developing Cultural Competence" in Chapter 9.) 5. For your next two to three slides, explain what your course text says about diversity, and how that plays a role in building relationships? (Tip: Refer to the section, "Building Lasting Relationships in Chapter 9.) 6. After the body of the presentation, you will need to develop a conclusion slide. This should wrap up yourpresentation, so that your audience (a potential interviewer in this case) will be reminded of your key points. Note: For help withPowerPoint®", refer to "How to Create a PowerPoint®" located in Materials for this assignment (on the right side of the classroom in the assignment view). In the meantime, here are some tips: • Organize the slides with bullet points and use the notes sections for comments that should accompany/explain each slide. • Keep in mind that when you are putting together a presentation, your slides should follow the 6:6 rule - there should be no more than 6 bullet points per slide, with about 6 word per bullet point. That means that the majority of the information in your slideshow will be in the notes section.


• It is important to remember that the slideshow is clear and logically organized; whether the notes section is used effectively; incorporates effective design elements (font headings, spacing, color); whether the slideshow is functional (including working audio clips, visual components and links) and whether grammar, usage, spelling and punctuation follow standard American English. ==============================================
