Verification 6: is confirmation of the accuracy of findings or attainment of greater certitude in conclusions through additional observations. Methodological narcissism 7: in which substance is overlooked in the name of method. Preferred rigor in research design is seldom realized in criminal justice field studies. This does not justify throwing out “the baby with the bath water.” Theory 7: in criminal justice represents an attempt to develop plausible explanations of reality, which in this case are crime and the criminal justice system. Paradigm 8: is “some implicit body of intertwined theoretical and methodological belief that permits selection, evaluation, and criticism” Methodology 9: (methods), on the other hand, involves the collection of accurate facts and/or data regarding the nature of crime and criminal justice policy.

...Hola. Me nombre es Keia Blair. Soy de Seymour, Indiana. Mi numero de telefono es cinco- veintiocho-sesenta-cero y siete. Mi direccion es veintiocho y cuarenta y tres High Forest Lane. Mi clase de Espanol es a las once de la mañana. Hay dieciocho estudiantes en la clase. This first chapter of Spanish was easy for me to learn and understand. It became a basic review for me, although I did learn how to tell time a little better. I took two years of Spanish in high school and have some experience from visiting the Dominican Republic each summer. I also took two years of latin in high school. In past foreign language classes, I have used a variety of strategies to learn. For me, repetition works easily for me. I learn to associate Spanish words with words I am familiar with in English. Sometimes, flashcards and pictures have made it easy to learn vocabulary words. At the beginning of the semester, I was hoping to work extra hard to learn the basics of Spanish, and to be able to have simple conversations with people. Throughout chapter one, I learned how to correctly tell time. The rest of the chapter was review for my Spanish speaking abilities. I learned some interesting facts about culture in this chapter. Each week, I spent 3-4 hours studying and working on homework assignments. For quizzes, I spent an hour studying. With the exam being worth much more, I spent an hour and a half studying for the exam. I particularly liked doing the pre homework because I was introduced......

Teaching Vocabulary

...Chapter Two 8 Teaching Vocabulary 8 Textbook analysis……………………………………………………………………………………………………………….....................20 CONCLUSION ...22 INTRODUCTION It seems almost impossible to overstate the power of words; they literally have changed and will continue to change the course of world history. Perhaps the greatest tools we can give students for succeeding, not only in their education but more generally in life, is a large, rich vocabulary and the skills for using those words. Our ability to function in today’s complex social and economic world is mightily affected by our language skills and word knowledge. Words are the primary building blocks of effective communication. Although gestures and facial expressions work well in face-to-face communication, words carry the weight of meaning when people are removed from each other in distance and time.The linguist David Wilkins summed up the importance of vocabulary in this way:”Without grammar very little can be conveyed, without vocabulary nothing can be conveyed”. His view is echoed from a course book (Dellar H and Hocking D, Innovations, LTP):”If you spend most of your time studying grammar, your English will not improve very much. You will see most improvement if you learn more words and expressions. You can say very little with grammar, but you can say almost anything with words!” The aim of the current term paper is to learn more about Vocabulary Teaching and......

Sample Proposal in Academic Setting

...With a large number of students in a class, most of the students cannot concentrate because some might be making unnecessary noise and movements. The aforementioned scenarios will result to the destruction of a class. I am writing to propose unique, effective, yet fair ways to promote discipline and proper classroom behavior and the possible actions that can be taken to ensure unruly behavior is minimized in a large class. I came up with operative solutions and attainable actions to the aforementioned situations. THE PROBLEM In every educational institution, discipline is very important. Every class should have a proper atmosphere to attain knowledge and to enable the students focus on their schooling. Discipline is essential to an academic growth and class’s harmony and success. Without discipline, especially in a Communication class of fifty students, each individual is prone to disobedience, violence, and failure. Inculcating discipline in classes will help students focus better on their studies. It will also help the teachers concentrate better in class discussions since students will be paying attention and will be giving respect to their teachers. Also, if discipline is imposed among the students, there would be a balance with everything, be it with individual presentations, group works and group presentations, and class reports or discussions. A large class has the potential to promote discipline, proper classroom behavior, and minimize unruly conduct if......
