An employee’s wife had a liver disease and eventually received a transplant.  The employer is a relatively small company that has a self-insured health plan.  The wife’s treatments caused the company to incur substantial costs.  Managers attempted to convince the couple to accept some alternative arrangement for insuring the wife, but because no viable alternative existed, she remained under the plan.  The employee was told at one point that the company’s options were to fire him or make him an independent contractor without benefits, but nothing was done at the time.  About a year later, the employee was fired and he sued.  What should the court decide, and why?

Research Of Educational Change

  Research of Educational Change

One aspect of professional development that educators can participate in is that of educational conferences. While you may at some point have participated in an educational conference as an attendee, you have the opportunity in this assignment to think as a presenter! This assignment will also provide you the opportunity to create or revise your Curriculum Vitae (CV) and cover letter.

In this assignment, you will take your discussion presentation you prepared for the staff meeting and convert it into a poster that you could use at an academic conference. As well, often when submitting a poster proposal you include a CV and cover letter that highlight your experience and research interests. If you created a CV and cover letter for a course in your program sequence, you may take this opportunity to revise and update those artifacts.

Historically, a conference poster session involves use of a large poster-board style document as a reference when speaking with conference attendees about your research or practical experiences with a topic. Increasingly, the poster session involves handouts in digital format transferred through QR codes or another medium and may involve a television or other screen display to communicate your research at an academic conference. Always, your poster presentation contains a title, introduction of the research question/s, overview of the research approach, results from the study or experience, and planned next steps in applying or expanding the study or experience. Additionally, the poster provides information about literature related to the poster topic, usually a selected listing of previously published articles that are important to the research, and a brief acknowledgement to those who helped with the study.

Your poster, in whatever format it is presented at the conference, is effective if it can be scanned and comprehended at a high level in around five minutes. Usually you will be present with your poster to explain points and answer questions in an authentic conference experience.

Using the Poster Presentation Template, create your assignment to meet the content and written communication expectations below. Upload your assignment to the course for evaluation and to your ePortfolio.

Research Question The Effect Of Peer Tutoring On The Success Of Low Performing Students On Academic Assessments

  Due Wednesday

Data Collection

As you consider the construction of your data gathering instruments, use the following questions and explanations by Sagor (2011) to guide you. What are three data sources will you use for your AR? Do you need a matrix for data triangulation? Is the process I am using to answer my question clear enough that my students (clients or participants) can understand it?

When collecting and analyzing data, action researchers can do a great deal to ensure the validity and reliability of their findings by using a process called triangulation. The term triangulation refers to the use of multiple independent data sources to corroborate findings. The purpose and necessity of corroboration is the same for the action researcher as it is for the trial lawyer. A trial lawyer knows that to convince a jury of the accuracy of a legal theory, it helps to have more than one witness; the more individual witnesses whose testimony supports the theory, the more credible the theory becomes (Sagor, 2002, p. 16-18).

Educational action researchers usually have a wide variety of data sources available to them. Some of the most common data sources are the following:

Existing data School/teacher records Referrals to the principal Attendance records Tardies Classroom behaviors (talk outs/negative behaviors) Number of detentions (per student) Number of suspensions (per student) Student work/portfolios

Observation data Photographs Videotapes Diaries, logs, journals Rating scales/rubrics Data obtained by shadowing students through the school day

Probes Tests Surveys Interviews Focus groups

You, as the researcher, will describe the instruments and data gathering techniques used. You must establish criteria for selecting the data as they relate to the scope of the problem.

A helpful tool for planning data collection and triangulation is a triangulation matrix—a simple grid that shows the various data sources that will be used to answer each research question. The matrix provides the action researcher with some assurance that the potential for bias (which is always present whenever a single source of data is used) won’t take on undue significance. Figure 2.3 illustrates how a completed triangulation matrix for a study on student editing might look.

Adapted from: Guiding school improvement through action research. (Sagor, 2002, pp. 8-16).

Your Task

Submit at least one of the data gathering instruments you have selected, or at least one of the instruments you have constructed along with an explanation. Please be sure to include your explanation for what you have chosen or designed – focus on how you see it connecting to your proposed project/research question. Attach the data-gathering instrument (surveys, pre tests, etc.) to the assignment submission.

Please also include a triangulation chart showing the ideas you have for the remainder of your data collection. You will need to develop the other tools for the final proposal as well, but for this assignment, you are submitting one to show your thinking and to get feedback about your ideas in the triangulation matrix. After you get instructor feedback on this, you can continue to develop your ideas and add them to your AR proposal. Reference

Clinical Field Experience B Administering Analyzing And Applying Assessment Results

By administering assessments and analyzing the results, targeted and individualized interventions can be determined to best serve the needs of students with disabilities. The actual implementation of the interventions provides teachers opportunities to collect data and gauge the effectiveness of the interventions in addressing documented student needs. Teachers can also gain important skills and knowledge on how to best advocate for practical classroom interventions. Teachers will also be able to collaborate with colleagues and families in mentoring students to take ownership of learning strategies.

Allocate at least 2 hours in the field to support this field experience,

Part 1: Assessment and Interventions

Select at least one student to whom you will administer the informal RTI assessment created in Clinical Field Experience A. Score the assessment and share the results with the student to increase understanding of his or her strengths and areas for improvement.

Collaborate with the certified special education teacher and the student to develop 2-3 interventions based on the student assessment data to support the student’s progress in the classroom. In addition, detail one intervention that can be incorporated at home with family support.

Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.

Part 2: Reflection

In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect upon the following:

· Describe each intervention, including teacher, student, and family roles, where applicable.

· Your experiences administering the assessment, analyzing the results, and providing the student feedback on his or her performance.

· Explain how you expect the interventions you developed to meet the needs of the student, incorporating his or her assessment results in your response.

· Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.



Write a 5-page double-spaced paper (not including the Title Page, Take-Home Message, Wellbeing Intention, or References) Use proper 7th edition APA formatting Engage

6) TAKE-HOME MESSAGE: Write the primary take-home message you want to share from exploring your curiosity question collected from different types of data, and that can be understood by any audience. Keep your message limited to 2-3 sentences, and type it into the designated box at the end of your paper. In other words, you are being asked to distill your research and knowledge into a concise answer to the original Curiosity Question. This is an opportunity to articulate your findings in a way that can be used to engage yourself and others in the conversation about what you are most curious about right now related to lifelong wellbeing [think Instagram caption]. 

7) WELLBEING INTENTION: Write a wellbeing intention, and insert into the box at the end of your paper. Actively engage with the data and research you collected, and your personal wellbeing journey, and set an intention for where you go from here. In other words, concisely state what you intend to do for your wellbeing based on the knowledge and skills gained from your Exploration Project and your experience in this course?

Unit 2 Leadership Theories Db


Graduate Programs Discussion Boards

Discussion Boards (DB) are a key component of online learning. They foster active participation of learners and dialog with fellow learners and instructors. Graduate-level courses require learners to create original posts to course DBs and to engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the course. Original posts and responses should be substantive, and if references are made to the works of others, APA guidelines for in-text citations and references apply.

Minimum Weekly DB Expectations Post      an original and thoughtful Main Post to      the DB prompt. Respond      to at least 2 other posts from learners and/or the instructor (Response      Posts). The      first contribution (Main Post or Response Post)      must be posted before midnight (Central time) on Friday of each week. Two      additional responses are required after Friday of each week. For      DB assignment prompts with a Part One and Part Two, Part One should be      addressed in the first week of the unit with a Main Post and minimum of 2      Response Posts, and Part Two should be addressed in the second week of the      unit with a Main Post and a minimum of 2 Response Posts.

More on DBs

At the end of each unit, DB participation is assessed based on level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion. DBs allow learners to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB are accepted after the end of the unit. Learners must demonstrate an appropriate depth of understanding of course content to receive credit for having submitted substantive posts. Typically, this is achieved with 4-6 strong paragraphs for Main Posts and 2–3 strong paragraphs for Response Posts.

Discussion Board Question Details

Part 1

Suppose that you have recently accepted a new administrative role in either a corporate or educational setting. Your new employer has requested that you select a leadership theory to use as a foundation for your role as a senior administrator. Focus your discussion on the following: What      leadership theory would you select and why? Discuss why the leadership      theory you selected would be a good match for you and your new role within      this organization or institution. How      does your approach differ from that of your classmates? How could that be      important in an organization with varied underlying theories? Are      there ethical implications for the organization in which theories are      selected or predominate? How do leadership theories interact with ethical      considerations in an educational or corporate training setting? What      might happen? As a leader, what can you do about it? Exchange your ideas      on this.

Part 2

Suppose you have recently accepted a new administrative role in either a corporate or educational setting. Imagine that the previous leader who was in this administrative role before you was a Great Man (according to the Great Man theory of leadership). Based on the leadership theory you selected in Part 1, participate in a dialogue on ways that your leadership theory and approach might be different from the previous person in this role. Focus your discussion on the following: How      would you retrain members of your organization to respond to issues      according to your preferred approach? If      training were not the answer, what actions might help affect the      organizational change? How      does your approach differ from that of your classmates? What do you see in      common?

In your own words, post a substantive response to the Discussion Board question(s) and comment on other postings. Your response should address the DB question(s) and move the conversation forward. You will be graded on the quality of your postings, including mastery of the concept as well as critical thinking. If asked for your opinion, do not simply state that it is a good or bad idea; elaborate on your reasons and argument. Include enough detail to substantiate your thinking as well as your position on the questions or comments.

Your assignment will be graded in accordance with the following criteria. Click here to view the grading rubric.

Qiana’s Post

According to our textbook readings piggybacking can occur when ideas of another person or within a group are used to improve that persons ideas that were not originally theirs. (Coget & Losh, 2018). When watching the video “Got a Wicked Problem ? First tell me how you make Toast”, Drawings were use as well as sticky notes and cards. Pictures and diagrams of how to make toast began to become more clear when these items were used. Once there was a group involved , the models began to refine and piggybacking occured. (Wujec, T. 2013)The significanc is that each person in the group began to work as a team and look to each other for how to make the drawing be logical and different aspects can be added from each member of the group.

Within the video once the group began working together on the diagram on how to make toast it was done in silence , because talking gets in the way. It is quicker and more effective to work in silence. (Wujec, T. 2013). If there is two much chatter amongst the group it can cause confusion, disagreements and slow the work process down, therefore making them less productive.

According to the video, group notes showed different points of view and they were synthasized and had better system models versus individuals.(Wujec, T. 2013). A advantage to working in groups is a expanded knowledge base, experience that is accessible to the group as a whole. (Coget & Losh, 2018). When people can come together and share information and resources more can get done and have better outcomes for whatever the goal or project being performed.

David’s Post:

A way groups work to solve problems is brainstorming. It was developed by Alex Osborn in 1939 to reduce the inefficiencies that occur in group work. One important principle is when the group begins to take initial ideas, combine and build on them in what is called piggybacking (Coget & Losh, 2018, sec. 5.5). This is a powerful result from working collaboratively in groups.

In a demonstration of the power of directed groups, Tom Wujec describes how first individuals, then later groups choose to visually display how to make toast. The sketches for the individuals had varying degrees of complexity, clarity and artistic quality. Once the groups tackled the project, the piggybacking began to occur and the quality, clarity and unique talents came out of refining and combing the ideas (Wujec, 2013). Wujec notes that the when the groups worked in silence, the lack of talking improved the quality of their piggybacking. Directed groups provide better solutions to solving problems than individuals alone because they can use a diversity of backgrounds, skills and experiences. Coget and Losh note, “Even if members possess the same or similar KSAs, they will vary in their degree of knowledge or achievement and their ability to use their KSAs in collaboration with others or in the context of the problem at hand” (Coget & Losh, 2018, sec. 5.2). Along with the diversity of ideas, the intelligence of the group increases if there is gender diversity and if the group doesn’t have a dominant voice. As Woolley et al. (2010) showed, enhanced interaction and communication in teams with greater numbers of women, as well as egalitarian rather than autocratic norms, improve group processes, which, in turn, facilitate increased collective intelligence (p.688).

Qiana’s Post

According to our textbook, groupthink is consideed disfunctional when groups want to keep harmony or peace within the group rather than doing what is best decion wise for the organization and to avoid conflict. (Coget & Losh, 2018). 

Groupthink has occured in my organization and I m sure it happens all the time in many others, I just didnt know that there was a actual word to describe it. In my work experience we are constantly short handed and in need of people because of a high turnover rate. There was a situation where we had employees who were not actually up to standard as for follwing protocol. The higher management took a blind eye to the situations because of the lack of emloyees and let these particular employees continue in their behavior for the sake of having people on those particular jobs. Over this decision making created a harder  more rigid work environment because we felt they were getting away with things we knew were wrong, just to avoind conflict and maintain a high employment state. These decisons effected our over audit and these individuals eventually wee fired. 

Groups can be successful when they collaborate together and have effective communication, shared knowledge, and their members within the group have a voice, even though most groups tend to lean toward choices that are harmonius.(Mcleod &; Feller, 2019). In most groups and organzations leaders, supervisors, managers, want to keep their employees happy, bus as in goupthink it should never jeapordize the integrity of the group or cause dissention amongst the group members. There are signs of groupthink such as a cohesive decision group that have norms that are lacking, and unbiased discussion, as well as leadership that is impartial. (Elder, F. 2019). Leadership is an important role and the employees need to be able to feel that there leaders or people in the group will make correct decisions.

Myeshia’s Post:

An example of groupthink is the disaster of the Space Shuttle Challenger. The Challenge exploded 73 seconds after it launched and all the crew members on board were killed. The O-rings (rubber seals in the solid rocket booster) failed which caused the space shuttle to break up. According to the Report of the Presidential Commission on the Challenger accident, the primary cause of the disaster was flaws in the decision making process (Hughes, 2010). There were three decision making groups involved in incident; the US government, the engineers, and NASA managers. NASA’s shuttle program had four levels of management that work interdependently. All levels of management have to certify in writing the readiness of the elements that they are responsible for. Additionally, each space shuttle program approves the fact that it has completed the manufacture assembly test and check of all pertinent components (Hughes, 2010). Another practice of NASA is a critical item list that classifies the parts of a shuttle’s elements. There were 200 elements listed on the critical items list about the rocket booster. All management levels are notified of the items on the critical item list. It is understood that items on the critical items list can cause the launch to be restricted until it can be demonstrated that no problems will occur at launch. Administrators ignored the engineers concerns about the O-rings failing.

Groupthink is detrimental to effective decision making because concurrence becomes dominant in a group and overrides realistic alternative solutions (Behl, 2012). When asked about O-ring failure the top NASA administrator stated, “It’s true of every other flight we’ve had” (Hughes, 2010). There have been O-ring damages in other launches but none of them resulted in death. “Groupthink occurs when a strongly cohesive group is exposed to limited and one-sided information and is isolated from outside influence or correction” (Coget & Losh, 2018, Sec. 6.5, para. 24). The symptoms of groupthink that occurred are stifling dissent or non-conforming views, harboring illusions of morality, harboring illusions of invulnerability, and experiencing group isolation or insolation. NASA is an insular group by nature which means they are isolated from criticism, influence, and outside input. Since NASA members almost only interact with each other, they feel a sense of invulnerability and superiority to those not in the group. NASA managers made unpleasant comments to the engineers when they recommended postponing the launch due to temperature concerns. NASA managers saw engineers as perfectionist and not risk takers (Hughes, 2010). NASA managers tried to prove that the launch would fail instead of making sure it would succeed by providing information on failed missions that had been discussed in the past.  I believe NASA had a rigid decision making style. Most power is consolidated at the top but some power is distributed to lower levels. Ultimately it was up to the senior manager who continued with the launch when problems were noted multiple times about the O-rings in the rocket booster.
