“A Better Life” reflects the reality of immigrants’ lives. I learned some immigrant experiences through this video.
What can I take away from the experience of observing this video that will help me build knowledge and Self-Awareness in Therapeutic Communication?
Monday not long after arriving at the office SAC Mark Pro received a phone call concerning assistance from the GBI for a death in Adel. CSS Kellyn Wilkes was the CSS on call. The other intern “Olivia” and I rode with CSS Wilkes to the scene. Upon arrival, we were still waiting on a search warrant before entering the house. However, since pictures are always taken before entering a house in death investigations we took pictures from different distances as well as vehicles on the property before entering the residence. Additionally, DNA swabs were taken before entering the home as well. I watched and observed as evidence was obtained and as the residence was searched. Afterward, evidenced was logged into an online database and left with the Adel Sherriff department.
The dialectical tension that the video describes is predictable novelty dialect. Monica and her husband, Chandler, are going through a very tension moment. Phoebe who is friends of both bring a friend, Don who apparently was flouring with Monica, Chandler felt that his marriage is in trouble or even worse that Monica is going to leave him. This assumption happened when both Monica and Don shared their common preferences such as cheese .After Monica explained to Chandler that not because she likes cheese and his friend too, she is going to leave him. They both expressed their feeling by letting each other to know that even though the relationship is sometimes difficult, they love each other
There were many points throughout the video, introduced by Ken Robinson, that I can relate to with my experience in school. A topic that I could indubitably relate to is a smaller class size. For example, I only graduated with seventy people in my entire grade and I come from a public school. My class size, from freshman to senior year on average, was around twenty students. Yet, even with such a small school, I always felt like teachers were too busy to help us personally when we needed it. The teachers would continually answer any questions we had very vaguely. Which in turn, left us to question ourselves if we were correct.
I like how you partition the multimedia elements in your writing. I am also glad that you are using Camtasia. I first heard of Camtasia last semester, I did a bit of search on the google site and found it interesting and from what you wrote great for Video editing/screen and Audio. Last week I asked around at work and found that some other departments use it. Now that I read that you and Susan are using it and that you guys like it, I really hope I can convince my leadership to purchase a license for me. As I ask Susan I hope you don’t mind asking you questions to help me with the learning curve.
The interviewer in the video implied that a psychopathy is a result of both genetic and upbringing. The genetics of psychopathic behavior is passed on from one generation to another however based off how that individual is raised well determine the outcome of this behavior. In our textbook, it discusses that, “…the socialization process in families, the personalities, values, and beliefs of children are initially shaped.” (Regoli p 246). If a child is brought up in a family that provides a role model of being a productive member of society, then a psychopathy by genetics has an opportunity to flourish in society. Whereas the opposite is true of children produced by parents that practice hate and abuse. It is also important to remember that,
During the progression of the video, I found myself becoming progressively more in agreeance of the usefulness of this exercise in all situations of daily life. It should be a necessity to have schools, businesses, households, etc. use this lesson to teach not only
No matter what a person looks like, they can come from a whole different background. This statement is the foundation of what I learned from looking at others autobiography’s video assignment. The only way we can get to know others around us is to get to know them first. There’s no way we can judge a person’s character just by looking at them. This is also an important lesson when entering into the teaching profession. Students will all come from different background and different cultures. No matter where each child comes from, each child deserves love and respect from me, as the teacher.
The elementary storytelling video is a relief to me. The amount of information I learned is beneficial for me and educational interpreters. I like how the presenter mentioned three important aspects of interpreting a story, which are facial expressions, body language, and setting up the scene. One of the issues I face is facial expressions. Sometimes, I forget to become the character. Most often, I’m focusing on the actual signing that I forget to represent the feelings of the character. My skills are not entirely week in facial expression, but it can use some practice. As for body language and setting up the scene, I believe I’m better than before, which is great. Anyhow, I enjoyed this video. Besides rewinding a few times, the video gave
) Many of my competencies helped me in this project, particularly with the technique we were using to create our informative video. Indeed, I have been used to new technologies since I am a little kid. I like to try new software and increase my abilities with the ones I am used to. I used a lot of software for school projects and I am now comfortable with many types of programs. It wasn’t difficult for me to discover a new app and all its functions. Furthermore, I had much existing knowledge about the subject. In fact, we’ve talked about the Second World War in history class, English class, French class and even in ethical class. Actually, we’ve talked specifically about Hitler’s speech at the Nuremberg Rally of 1935 in ECR last year. It helped me a lot to have a strong base on which I was able to build my ideas for the video.
The structure of the film Stories We Tell is a documentary, but not in a traditional style or sense. A traditional documentary is a film that generally provides a factual record or report. National Geographic documentaries are a popular example of this. What makes Stories We Tell different, yet still a documentary, is that it uses the individual’s perspective instead of an omniscient observer’s perspective. The interviews were evidence of the film being a documentary, as it asks for specific people for their view, their “report” on the topic that is being discussed in the film. Factual evidence is included, yet is slightly different due to different people’s perspective on the stories, memories of Diane and the whole mystery behind Sarah’s biological father. Near the ending of the film, Sarah states that she would like Harry to hold off from publishing their story, and instead publish it as a documentary. What makes this film a documentary is not that it displays facts and reports of realism, but a message of some sort, from the director. This film begins with a story to tell, eventually ending with discussion on
Our role play video was taken in Granger, WA at the Dinosaur Park. Throughout this paper I am going to talk about my strengths, weaknesses and the areas of improvement as the social worker during the role play video.
By using Skillstreaming to help students learn classroom survival skills, friendship making skills, how to deal with feelings, anger, and stress, it is believed to help children become less passive, less isolated, and reduce the
This semester has been filled with informative information when speaking about our own social skill, but also other people’s social psychology as well, thus is why it will be very useful in future. Throughout the semester we studied everything from the introduction of social psychology, social influences, aggression in psychology, and interpersonal attraction and close relationships. A lot of the knowledge that I gained was not only from the “Social Psychology” textbook, but also in the videos and the reactions that we needed to come up with on a weekly basis. I like the idea of being able to watch the video to see if the experiment was successful or unsuccessful and commenting on it by giving my opinion if I agreed or not. For me,
