Chapter 6 Safety

Robert J. Marzano Marzano Research ePub

When considering safety, teachers can examine how they support both the actual and perceived safety of students. Despite tragic and widely publicized violent incidents (such as those at Columbine High School in 1999 and Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012), statistically speaking, schools tend to succeed at creating environments free of genuine danger. Nevertheless, teachers can ensure students feel safe by addressing various aspects of perceived safety in addition to securing the actual safety of their classrooms. In this chapter, we address four aspects of safety: (1) actual safety, (2) order, (3) fairness, and (4) consistency.

Strategies for meeting the actual safety needs of students are often implicit in K–12 schools. For example, while some classes may be more predisposed to potentially dangerous situations (for example, science laboratories), state and school requirements often mandate the development of standard operating and emergency procedures as well as the presence of specific safeguards to ensure students’ actual safety. Additionally, many schools have security guards, metal detectors, and support from local law enforcement as a means to further bolster their actual safety. This being stated, teachers can still take specific actions to support actual safety throughout the year.

Rossetti, Christina Carcanet Press Ltd. ePub

When my love came home to me,

     Pleasant summer bringing,

Every tree was out in leaf,

     Every bird was singing.

There I met her in the lane

     By those waters gleamy,

Met her toward the fall of day,

     Warm and dear and dreamy.

Did I loiter in the lane?

     None was there to see me.

Only roses in the hedge,

     Lilies on the river,

Saw our greeting fast and fond,

     Counted gift and giver,

Saw me take her to my home,

     Take her home for ever.

♦ CHAPTER ONE ♦ How Did Corporations Get So Much Power? In which the author reads a poll, feels provoked and befuddled, and organizes his investigation

Nace, Ted Berrett-Koehler Publishers ePub

As corporations gain in autonomous institutional power and become more detached from people and place, the human interest and the corporate interest increasingly diverge. It is almost as though we were being invaded by alien beings intent on colonizing our planet, reducing us to serfs, and then excluding as many of us as possible. —David Korten, When Corporations Rule the World

IT’S NOT OFTEN that Americans get asked by pollsters what they think about corporate power. Usually the questions are on issues like abortion and gun control. But in September 2000, Business Week published the results of a series of polls about how people felt about the power wielded by large corporations in American society. These polls were conducted more than a year before the corporate scandals involving Enron, Tyco, WorldCom, and other large companies emerged.

The polls suggested a massive cultural stomachache: too much corporate power, too much corporate everything. When the Harris pollsters commissioned by Business Week asked people what they thought of the statement “Business has too much power over too many aspects of our lives,” 52 percent said they agreed “strongly” and an additional 30 percent said they agreed “somewhat.”

Mother art

Integrity of the outward object i


rchitecture, it has often been said, is the Mother of the

Arts. I hope to intensify the meaning of this phrase although architecture is usually subject to urgent practical requirements, and always to climate. Such considerations, and much else – for instance, the intellectual pleasures of coherence, the bodily references imputed to mass – are regarded here as the conditions, or in the latter cases, the modes, of an aesthetic aim which cannot itself, of course, be confined, as is so often done, to the terms of modes and media.

In front of a fine building it would no doubt seem irrelevant to think as follows: we were first one with our mothers; then, during early infancy we found repeatedly (and feared the loss of, mourned) our guardians as whole people whose composite separateness in large measure defined the unity of our own . . .

But classical architecture, we shall see, essays the reconstruction

11 America’s Finest

Gregory V. Short University of North Texas Press ePub

Chapter Eleven

America’s Finest

“Fundamentally, wars are an economic struggle between the ruling classes of nations. But it’s the common people that have to pay the terrible price for their avarice.”

One of the truisms that I learned in Vietnam was that a grunt shouldn’t hang around his company’s rear area while he is awaiting orders. The spit-and-polish NCOs would seek him out and put him to work at the first opportunity whether he is in dire need of rest or not. To my absolute disgust, it took about ten minutes after I had landed in Quang Tri before some sergeant stuck his head into the tent and ordered me to collect my gear in order to stand watch on the perimeter. But instead of blindly following his orders, I began to argue with the guy. I had lost all patience with the REMFs (Rear Echelon Mother Fuckers). As far as I was concerned, they didn’t give a damn about our welfare and they sure as hell couldn’t have cared less about what we had been through. It was obvious that many of them enjoyed screwing with the grunts. Whether it was from some deep-seated resentment on their part or from some inbred anger they had acquired as a kid, I had no idea. But at this point of the war, I was getting extremely tired of being harassed by every lame NCO who had spent his entire tour surrounded by rows of barbed-wire fences while living in air-conditioned hooches.

Duane A. Smith University Press of Colorado ePub

Colorado has been one of the fastest-growing states in the nation. All this growth has caused some problems. Highways are crowded with cars, especially during rush hour when many commuters are going to or coming home from work. Traffic also stacks up on Sundays, when people return from weekends in the mountains. Traffic sometimes slows cars down or even stops them. How often have you been stuck in a traffic jam?

With this growing population, Colorado’s map has changed. In 2001 the state gained a new county, Broomfield. This sixty-fourth county was created because of large population growth in the area between Denver and Boulder. Many other cities around the state have also become much bigger.

Denver, Colorado’s capital, keeps on growing. Between 1990 and 2010, the metro Denver area gained more than a million people and is now a metropolitan area of almost 3 million. The Mile High City is the largest city in the Rocky Mountain region and the twenty-sixth–largest city in the United States. The Denver metropolitan area consists of Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson Counties.

CHAPTER TWELVE: The millennium and the median group

Karnac Books ePub

Patrick de Maré

The advent of the millennium has stirred people up everywhere, as if something really significant is about to happen. Clearly, that Christianity has survived for a second thousand years is no mean achievement, but that does not explain why group analysts who are not specifically Christian have decided to publish a special issue of their journal about the future of group analysis during the millennium.

Nevertheless, Heulwen Bawaroska, Helen Schick, Carole Clifford, David Parsons, and myself, who constitute the backbone of what we have called the Median Group Seminar, which meets informally at my home, are absolutely delighted, since, on the whole, we feel we have been boycotted by most group analysts, intent on promulgating small groups even though they themselves constitute a large group of several hundred people.

There is another matter I should like to mention, which is that in entering the second millennium we have also encountered the potential of becoming dualistic, one thousand having become two; we have had to reflect on our previously linear development and to think more about human affairs in dyadic terms, rather like a midlife crisis of having to discover one’s story.

6 Expanding Technology and Coding Concepts

Meg Ormiston Solution Tree Press ePub


Expanding Technology and Coding Concepts

The term coding describes the multiple languages used to program computers to complete tasks. Coding’s evolution has rapidly transformed our society, changing how we develop products and services, how we build space-faring rockets, and how we interact on social media. As technology gets easier to use, the code that drives the apps and devices we use every day becomes more complex. As careers in coding grow, so too do the opportunities for students to learn to code. Taking advantage of these opportunities does more for students than merely teaching them coding language, however. When students learn to code, it teaches them critical-thinking and computational-thinking skills. By coding, students become computational thinkers, as ISTE (2016) states in its Standards for Students. In this context, computational thinking is a way of organizing thought processes to formulate a problem and find a solution that machines can understand. Coding allows students to build these skills while creating and testing automated solutions.

Chapter Ten - Carla's Panic Attacks: Insight and Transformation

Civitarese, Giuseppe; Ferro, Antonino Karnac Books ePub

This paper is an initial reflection on the subject of panic attacks, based on the presentation of clinical material from the ongoing analysis of a female patient with severe pathology, of which such attacks were from the beginning the most conspicuous symptom. This clinical description is useful in my view because the “panic attack” is often attributed in the psychiatric literature to organic factors, so that analysis is held to be contraindicated. My chapter concludes with an attempt to define the general theoretical model underlying this symptom.

I wish to share with you the adventure in which I have found myself engaged with Carla and shall therefore come straight to the point. On my first meeting with this patient, the basic diagnosis I made to myself was agoraphobia and claustrophobia. In general I prefer as far as possible to avoid in-depth diagnosis, for fear of imposing an excessively rigid pattern on the material observed and its elaboration. I therefore relied on my countertransference feeling that it was right to take Carla into analysis; I felt that there was room in my group of patients at that time for one who was more seriously ill, and was also prepared to accept the difficulties and frustrations that might be involved in pursuing the associated line of research.

6 Eduardo (July 1994)

Karnac Books ePub

Carlos Tabbia

T his patient is the 32-year-old engineer who works with his father. I am still lost with this patient, because he talks without any punctuation; the things he says have no meaning for him. He can say in the same tone of voice: "I sacked a 63-year-old employee because I didn't like him and then I went to bed with a girl but ended up in bed with a boy."


P: Yesterday my father was extremely fidgety; he had been putting pressure on me to change the name of the company. He was nagging me to get the rubber stamps produced…. But that makes me feel contrary. He sent me to have some papers signed in Pueblo Nuevo. I saw there were some triplex apartments still for sale, so I thought: what shall I do with the money I earn? I am thinking of leaving home. In Xavi's house everybody says hello to him; they all know each other; I liked the district, there are very few cars, just lorries, it is outside the Olympic Village so it is quieter. Also last week my father was anxious about some work we was behind with, but we weren't really. I had a strange dream: "A worm was getting up" {it sounds like a dildo, I read some publicity about it); "it was of different sizes" (like a cobra rising) "it was an upright worm stuck to the floor with a sucker." I felt anxious. Yesterday I met a boy who has been operated on for a twisted ligament; today I remembered that I touched the ground with my knee when I fell off my motorbike and it hurt; did I break something? My knee feels okay now. Yesterday the girl who does our flat went to the set where they are shooting a soap. I don't like being on TV. She has blue eyes. She invited me to go with her. She has good friends. On another shoot I went to I had a good time. I went with my cousin. We were extras in a San Juan dance in the harbour; three girls fought to go out with me.

CHAPTER THREE: Causes of a delusional orientation

Steinman, Ira Karnac Books ePub

Some people become delusional when their ability to cope is overwhelmed by mood, intense feeling or drugs. Mind-expanding drugs, manic mood or intense anxiety may speed stimuli to such an extent that the person cannot adequately integrate the sensations and ideas floating through his mind. It becomes impossible to tell when a shadow is a shadow and when it is an attacker. Mania may lead to grandiosity, omnipotence and paranoia. Depressed mood, with the attendant slowing of physical and mental stimuli, may lead to delusions of inadequacy, self-recrimination and hypochondria. For patients whose delusions are secondary to a mood disorder, it is of the utmost importance to try and treat the underlying mood disorder with appropriate antimanic, mood stabilising, antidepressant and tranquillising medications. Psychotherapy is helpful in the reintegration of such patients, but is secondary to treating the underlying mood disorder with appropriate medications. For depressed patients, the armamentarium of antidepressant drugs and augmenting agents should be tried in addition to psychotherapy. In some forms of severe treatment-resistant depression, this combination of drugs and psychotherapy becomes a most important vehicle for change.

Why Every Modern Girl Should Sew

Heidi Staples Stash Books ePub

Why bother sewing?

You can buy clothes at Walmart for a fraction of what it costs you to make them. Home furnishings are available online at the click of a button, and styles are changing faster than anyone can keep up. Gifts line the shelves at the local mall, and if you’re really desperate, you can buy something handmade (by someone else, of course) on Etsy.

Besides, who has time to sew? Have you looked at your calendar lately? Where exactly are you going to find time to do this in between meetings, errands, and the 50 other appointments on your schedule today?

Making the Case for Sewing

In today’s world, it may seem as if sewing has become completely irrelevant, but I disagree. So do a lot of other people out there. The handmade revolution has exploded in recent years. There was a time when people made everything themselves because they had no other choice. Now we’re choosing to make more things ourselves because we’re finding that it’s a more fulfilling way to live.

Chapter Fifteen - Hatred and Helping: Working with Our Own Fear and Narcissistic Rage

Karnac Books ePub

Peter Wilson

However much he [the therapist] loves his patients he cannot avoid hating them and fearing them, and the better he knows this the less will hate and fear be the motives determining what he does to his patients.

Winnicott, 1947, p. 195

The title of this chapter is intensely strenuous. To say the least. Hatred, fear, and narcissistic rage. Goodness, such a heady heavy mixture—and somehow, something to do with helping. How on earth can my hatred, fear, and rage be of any use to the people I am trying to help? Shouldn't I be above all these things, shouldn't I be more professional, if not better analysed?

Well, of course. Yes, of course I should. But I cannot but deny that I have found myself not always up to the lofty professional heights of well modulated emotion, measured consideration, and unconditional positive regard. In relation to some of my patients, I have rumbled and raged in the mire of dark and uncharitable thoughts and I have been well and truly bothered by it. But, as so often happens, I have discovered I have not been alone. Wise colleagues and lively supervisees have confided in me that they too have laboured away with feelings not dissimilar.

CHAPTER TWO. General notes on schizophrenia

Alanen, Yrjo O. Karnac Books ePub

Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness that usually becomes manifest in adolescence or in early adulthood. It is characterized by partial disorganization of personality functions, developmental regression, and a tendency to withdraw from interpersonal contacts into a subjective internal world of ideas, often coloured by hallucinations or delusions. The illness may begin suddenly or gradually, and its symptoms either improve or become chronic to different degrees. Many patients have better periods with only minor symptoms and worse periods when the symptoms are re-aggravated. Schizophrenia differs from the mental illnesses of definite organic origin in that it does not involve dementia or disorders of memory, orientation, or intelligence comparable to the latter.


One central aspect of the disorganization of personality is the loss of reality testing, which is usually considered a symptom pathognomic of all psychotic disorders. It means that the ability to differentiate unambiguously between internal experiences and sensations (perceptions) of the external world has been lost, which results in the emergence of hallucinations. Auditory hallucinations are particularly common in schizophrenia, although all the sensory functions may be involved. The loss of reality testing, in a milder form, is also typical of delusions, which are due to subjective misinterpretation of observations of the surrounding world.
