Applying Theoretical Frameworks to Films

Applying Theoretical Frameworks to Films
Week 2 Assignment
PURPOSE: The purpose of this assignment is to have you further practice applying the theoretical frameworks. Specifically, you will watch a popular film/movie and then apply the frameworks to explain the behavior or development of a main character or group of people.
INSTRUCTIONS:
Before completing this assignment you should:
 Read the lesson plan for the week. In the lesson plan the four theoretical frameworks are defined in detail. You will not be able to complete this assignment unless you have read about and understand the theoretical frameworks.
 Participate in the Weekly Discussion Forum concerning the theoretical frameworks. This weeks’ Discussion Forum topic entails using the theoretical frameworks to attempt to explain the behavior of Elliot Rodger, the young man who killed 6 people and injured 13 more near UCSB on May 23, 2014. It is on the Weekly Discussion Forum that we will practice together applying the frameworks to this tragedy. Posting and responding on the Discussion Forum prior to doing this assignment is very important as it will give you the skills to successfully apply the theoretical frameworks on your own.

…….
….

Once you have read about the theoretical frameworks in the lesson plan and participated in the Weekly Discussion Forum where we work together to apply the frameworks, you are ready to do this assignment. There are three steps:
1. Choose a film/movie to watch that details the development of a single main character or group of people. Below are movies that have been approved for this assignment. If you want to use a different movie/film for this assignment, you can, but you will need to get the instructor’s permission. Email Dr. Manke directly to get approval for other movies (beth.manke@csulb.edu).
2. As you watch the film you should take notes on the behavior/development of the main character or group of people. Many of the characters in the approved movies are met with challenges as they seek to better their lives. In addition, you will want to think about HOW you would use each of the four main theoretical frameworks to explain the development of the main character or group of people. That is, for example, you will want to be able to describe, citing specific examples from the film, how you would explain the development of the main character using the Environment Learning Framework. Which proximal environments (e.g., parents, peers, neighborhood influences, teachers, coaches, gang members, etc.) shaped the main character?

…….
….

Be sure to think about each of the four theoretical frameworks in relation to the film as you will be asked to write about all four of the frameworks in your assignment.
3. Write a 2-page typed paper (single spaced) where you apply all four theoretical frameworks to the film. Your paper should have 5 sections:
 Section 1: Indicate which film you watched and then describe the main character’s (or group of people’s) development or behavior.
 Section 2: Use the Biological Maturation framework to explain the character’s development or behavior. Be sure to include specific details from the movie in your response.
 Section 3: Use the Environment Learning framework to explain the character’s development or behavior. Be sure to include specific details from the movie in your response.
 Section 4: Use the Constructivist framework to explain the character’s development or behavior. Be sure to include specific details from the movie in your response.
 Section 5: Use the Cultural Context framework to explain the character’s development or behavior. Be sure to include specific details from the movie in your response.
DUE DATE: This assignment is due no later than Sunday June 8, 2014, 11:59 PM (PST).
SUBMISSION PROCESS: To submit your assignment, please place it in the digital drop box on BeachBoard in the folder marked Week 2 Assignment: Applying Theoretical Frameworks to Films.
GRADING CRITERIA: This assignment is worth 25 points (5 points per section). Ability to use each theoretical framework to explain the development of the film’s main character (and use specific film details to support your answer) will determine points earned.
FEEDBACK: Students will receive feedback from the instructor via email within one week of the submission deadline.

Reflecting on Leadership Styles

·         Assignment: Individual Reflection: Reflecting on Leadership Styles Part I
In his article “Leadership That Gets Results,” leadership expert Dan Goleman (2000) describes six leadership styles. Successful leaders do not employ only one style; instead, they select the appropriate style for the situation, deftly switching from one style to another, as circumstances demand. The scenarios and leaders that Goleman describes in his article demonstrate the contingency theory of leadership in action.
Bjugstad et al. (2006) approach the contingency theory of leadership in a different way. Instead of examining profiles of leadership styles, they examine styles of followership. After illustrating the different styles that followers employ, the authors align the styles of leadership that should be used for various followers.
For the Week 4 Individual Reflection, you will use the frameworks of examining leadership and followership styles provided by Goleman (2000) and Bjugstad et al. (2006) to analyze twoleaders with whom you are familiar.
Your Individual Reflection will be in two parts, with Part I submitted in Week 4 and Part II submitted in Week 5.
By Day 7, submit Part I of the Individual Reflection by doing the following:
o    Select two leaders with whom you have interacted as a follower in your personal or professional life. The leaders you select could be current or former managers or executives in your professional life. However, you may also select current or former coaches, teachers, mentors, etc. from your personal life. Once you have selected the leaders, download and view the Week 4 and Week 5 Individual Reflection Template in this week’s Learning Resources. The template will provide you the format for the Individual Refection. Then complete the following:
o    Create an APA-style title page with a tentative title for your Individual Refection. Use the Week 4 and Week 5 Individual Reflection Template as a guide to format the title page correctly.
o    Create a resource page. This page will contain the APA-style references of the two resources—Goleman (2000) and Bjugstad et al. (2006)—as well as at least one relevant resource that you or your colleague posted in the water cooler discussion. List the resources in alphabetical order.
Submit your Assignment by Day 7.
To submit your Assignment, do the following:
·         Save your Assignment as a “.doc” file with the filename “WK4Assgn+last name+first initial.doc”. For example, Sally Ride’s filename would be “WK4AssgnRideS.doc”.
·         To upload your Assignment, click on Assignments on the course navigation menu, and then click the “Assignment Turnitin – Week 4” link.
To prepare for Part II for the Week 5 Individual Reflection, due on Day 7 of Week 5:
·         Reflect on reasons for why you chose each leader.
·         Consider how the behaviors and actions of leaders you selected were consistent with contingency theory and the styles referred to in the Learning Resources. In other words, consider how the leadership styles of each leader aligned, or did not align, to the challenges they faced.
·         Reflect on whether the leaders were, or were not, effective.
·         Consider the reasons you, or others, chose to follow, or not to follow, these leaders and the risks you and others take on when making this choice.
You will need to support conclusions with references to the articles by Goleman (2000) and Bjugstad et al. (2006), as well as at least one resource you or a colleague posted in the water cooler discussion from this week. An exemplary paper will also integrate resources from previous weeks. Remember to review the appropriate rubric for this assignment so that you know how the Instructor will be grading your paper.

There are 2 parts of this course work: 1.a draft of “white paper”(1500 words) 2.a Combined Memorandum and Progress Report for white paper. (800 words)

1. The main document in this course will be a ‘white paper.’ This is a type of research paper that examines a certain topic and presents itself as an authoritative voice. Review the links in Resources (White Paper folder) on the nature of a white paper. The goal of the white paper is for you to argue, discuss, or present a position on technology and education from the perspective of your dream job. While you may voice your opinion in the white paper, each of your opinions should be supported with information from credible, reliable, and verifiable sources.

…….
….

The use of sources from experts helps to support your position presented in your white paper. It is important to consider all sources of information – negative and positive – to respond to the negative, while highlighting the positive. Your goal is to help the reader make up their mind on the subject, based upon the information that you have gathered.

Format: For the draft of the white paper, use this structure:

Cover page: Indicate the title of your report, your name, date, and the dream job company; include the word count also
Introduction (outline a problem and include thesis statement)
Discussion (evaluate the historical background of a problem using supporting evidence and conclusions)
Recommendations (offer generic concepts that might pose a solution and the associated benefits, and then introduce your unique solution to the problem):
Resources (documentation and verification of discussion points)

…….
….

1. Goal:
To identify the progress you have made on your white paper, and what steps are needed to take to complete the document. The memorandum and associated progress report should be at least 800 words.

Use the structure of the documents that are presented in the text, where the sections are used as headings (review chapter 6). This progress report will be written as a memorandum for the supervisor or manager at your dream job. Review the structure for a memorandum (chapter 10), especially noting the differences between the letter and the memorandum.

Memorandum:
Use the proper memorandum format. This memorandum should be directed to the supervisor or manager of your dream job, using a name, if possible, or simply a position. Locate an appropriate individual, other than simply using “Human Resources.” This may mean that you will have to do some additional exploring of the company or organization, to locate an acceptable individual. You should provide some type of introductory paragraph that allows the individual to understand the purpose and nature of the relevant progress report.

Progress report:
The following sections are fully detailed in the text, and are not meant to substitute for that information.

…….
….

Introduction:
This should be a 150- to 200-word summary of the subject/purpose of your white paper, where you discuss how you will consider the impact of education and technology for your dream job. You may wish to review your comments in blog 2 on your focus for the white paper.

Project description:
Describe your work on the white paper report, stating its purpose and scope that covers any specific steps you need to undertake. This could include writing an outline (chapter 3), identifying appropriate images (chapter 6), and locating credible sources (chapter 7).

Work completed:
This should highlight your white paper efforts to date, including the preliminary research that you have accomplished, identifying reputable or reliable sources of information. Here is where you may wish to include discussions on Classroom at the End of the ‘Line.’

Work planned for future periods:
This should reflect work that is planned to complete the white paper, and a schedule for accomplishing those tasks.

Appraisal of progress:
Reflect on your progress on the white paper, identifying where you are ahead of schedule and where you are behind schedule.

Almost 50 years ago Martin Luther King had a dream, “that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character” (King, 1963). This same philosophy of integration and equality is not only applicable to race in our society, but to all groups of people who had been previously treated unfairly.

Indeed, the 1960s is an era characterized by the struggle for civil rights of elders, women, gays and lesbians, the disabled, and wage earners. All of your communities today are forever changed due to these groups’ struggles.
Assignment
In this assignment you are going to become photojournalists. Go into your community with a camera and gather evidence to create a PowerPoint presentation of progress (or lack of progress, if you wish) made toward the achievement of civil rights of these and other groups in society.

…….

 

Think about changes in peoples’ rights, including women, the elderly, the disabled, and ethnic and racial minorities. Look at businesses, place names, neighborhoods, public facilities, parks, monuments and other aspects of the built environment.
Be sure to include and fulfill the following objectives in your presentation.
• Your presentation makes a definitive statement about the progress (or lack of progress) that has been made in your community since the Civil Rights movements of the 1960s.
• The photos are your own original work. The quality of your photos will not be assessed.

…….

 

• Each slide supports or refutes the thesis that progress has been made in the community since the Civil Rights era of the 1960s.
Caution: Do not take pictures of children in public places or at schools. Photographing people is not recommended because it requires getting permission. Do not trespass on private property without written permission from the owner. If in doubt about the appropriateness of your proposed photo subject, consult your instructor.

Business Ethics help

Weather you’re and employer or an employee you should know what your rights are when it comes to Internet use in the workplace. Mark Grossman a Florida attorney who specializes in computer and Internet law gives answers to some basic questions.

Scenario 1
Nobody told you that your Internet use in the office was being monitored. Now you’ve been warned you’ll be fired if you use the Internet for recreational surfing again. What are your rights?

Bottom Line.
When you’re using your office computer you have virtually no rights. You’d have a tough time convincing a court that the boss invaded your privacy by monitoring your use of the company PC on company time. You should probably be grateful you got a warning.

Scenario 2
Your employees are abusing their Internet privileges but you don’t have an Internet usage policy. What do you do?

Bottom Line.
Although the law isn’t fully developed in this area courts are taking a straightforward approach: If it’s a company computer the company can control the way it’s used. You don’t need an Internet usage policy to prevent inappropriate use of your company computers. To protect yourself in the future distribute an Internet policy to your employees as soon as possible.

Scenario 3
Employee John Doe downloads adult material to his PC at work and employee Jane smith sees it. Smith then proceeds to sue the company for sexual harassment. As the employer are you liable?

Bottom Line.
Whether it comes from the Internet or from a magazine adult material simply has no place in the office. So Smith could certainly sue the company for making her work in a sexually hostile environment. The best defense is for the company to have an Internet usage policy that prohibits visits to adult sites. (Of course you have to follow through. If someone is looking at adult material in the office you must at least send the offending employee a written reprimand.) If the company lacks a strict Internet policy though Smith could prevail in court.
