Affolding In Education - 2,053 words
... ating such authentic simulations appears to limit its capacity to accommodate this. Even more ill-structured academic areas such as History and Philosophy require a level of context, even if that context is the academic one requiring the implementation of a culturally specific methodology and use of language. It is here, perhaps, that a Social Constructivist approach may be particularly useful. It could be argued that the use of the Web is best suited to that of a communications medium for collaborative approaches to learning rather than as a "24 hour a day glorified whiteboard" (Archee & Duin, 1995). Such a use would involve a high level of social rather than physical interaction; an as ...

Dr Faustus - 700 words
In Dr. Faustus, Christopher Marlowe has vividly drawn up the character of an intelligent, learned man tragically seduced by the lure of power greater than he was mortally meant to have. The character of Dr. Faustus is, in conception, an ideal of humanism, but Marlowe has taken him and shown him to be damned nonetheless, thus satirizing the ideals of Renaissance Humanism. M. H. Abram's A Glossary of Literary Terms defines Renaissance Humanism, stating that some of the key concepts of the philosophy centered around "the dignity and central position of human beings in the universe" as reasoning creatures, as well as downplaying the "animal' passions" of the individual. The mode of the thought a ...

How Can Domestic Violence Be Explained - 1,330 words
... milies who are prone to domestic violence, it cannot be possible to rely solely on stresses as an explanation of abuse. Most social-economic/socio-demographically stressed men do not abuse their partners. Another explanation of domestic violence that has been much researched and documented is that of learned behaviour which is sometimes known as the cycle of violence. These well-documented studies show that domestic violence may occur when a child has been exposed to, witnessed or experienced domestic violence in their family origin. One such study carried out by Strauss et al (1979) found that there was a clear trend for violence in childhood to produce violence in adult life; Violence ...

Too Much Medicine For The Wrong Head - 1,507 words
Adolescent depression continues to be a growing American problem since its discovery in the 1970s. How exactly to treat this problem, however, is not a clear issue. For years the psychiatric community felt that psychotherapy was the best way to treat this growing epidemic. However, with the development of antidepressants, most famously Prozac, many people feel the problem is nearing a solution. Many psychiatrists believe these pills can be a quick and effective way to treat suffering adolescents. Many others believe this solution is too quick and too easy to be true. Unqualified personnel are over prescribing selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (antidepressants) to children and adolescen ...

Joan Of Arc - 1,628 words
How My Outside Reading Supplemented Chapter 12 In the textbook A History of Western Civilization by McKay, Hill, and Buckner there is little about Joan of Arc. The textbook just briefly describes the hundred-year war and Joans role in it. The textbook also states a small amount of information about her trial for hierarchy. This wonderful story of a strong lady leading a whole army to victory, her tragic trial and her death needs to be discussed more in this textbook. My outside reading helped me to understand the strength of St. Joan of Arc. The books I read were Saint Joan of Arc by V. Sackville West and Joan of Arc by Frances Giles. These books, especially the book by West, gives great det ...

Oj Simpson And The Evidence That Acquited Him - 1,388 words
The OJ Simpson case has been hailed "The Trial of the Century." One of the longest running court trials in history, this case was filled with conspiracy, controversy, and the power of celebrity.

Amidst all the accusations of planted evidence and conspiracy plans against Simpson, the jury and Judge Ito had to try to sift through and find Simpson guilty or not guilty. On June 12, 1994 Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman were brutally murdered with what appeared to be a single-edged sharp weapon, most likely a knife. Nicole Brown was the ex-wi ...
