Arizona Statehood and Constitution "I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which
American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend
It against all enemies." Tyler, W (1918) -- The American's Creed. The Spanish Period, Arizona is the youngest of all the states, and the last of the 48 states to be admitted to the Statehood in 1912. Arizona’s history goes back hundreds of years. In 1535, the Spanish explorer Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, with three companions, found their way to Arizona; where Cabeza de Vaca was perhaps the first European explorer to enter Arizona territory. Arizona history states that, “His report led to further explorations of the region. The Spaniards heard stories about the great wealth of the Seven Cities of Cibola. They grew eager to find this treasure”. In the 1600s Antonio de Espejo and Juan de Onate found minerals that would make Arizona rich and increase Spanish interest in the territory. In 1752 the Spanish established the first white settlement. The Arizona history states that “the 18th century was a period of battles between the Spanish and native Indians. Little progress was made developing Arizona during these year”. The Mexican Period; In 1821 Mexicans revolted against the Spanish this lead to Arizona becoming an Mexican territory.

Canter's Behavior Management Cycle

...Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle: A Case Study Michelle Chandler Grand Canyon University: EDU-536 December 15, 2012 Effective teachers know that by motivating students to grasp directions quickly they can stay focused on instruction, which is critical to the learning process, and less time will be exhausted on noncompliant student behavior (Canter, 2006). Otherwise, students may not be able to concentrate on or benefit from the lesson plan because the student or students that are misbehaving continue to disrupt the class. Speaking out of turn, chatter amongst students, getting off task, sleeping during class, using cell phones or other types of technology and yelling across the classroom are all examples of disruptive behavior. Disruptive behavior can even escalate to issues much more severe such as threatening the safety and welfare of other students or teachers in the classroom. The first step, and most important for a teacher is to identify the disruptive behavior and address the inappropriate actions of the student in a professional manner. Moreover, a teacher should take action as soon as they first notice the student misbehaving. Stopping one student’s disruptive behavior will demonstrate to the other students that misbehaving in the classroom will not be tolerated or they will face consequences. There are many ways to effectively manage disruptive behavior in a classroom. Although, one method has proven to be most successful for teachers and that is......

He is very popular because of his talent on the basketball court and only comes to school to play sports. He keeps his grades just high enough to remain on the team and puts forth little effort in his work but enjoys being the center of attention on and off the court. In the past, teachers have allowed him to get by with poor effort and classroom disruptions, so he continually talks and calls out during lessons. When assignments are due, Luke either “forgets” the assignment or comes up with some kind of excuse, actually utilizing the classic “my dog ate it” which gets a laugh from his classmates. Other students find Luke’s behavior entertaining and get off task to join in. Mrs. Flanagan is becoming more and more frustrated with Luke’s behavior, not only his class disruptions,......

...Ken Hayes EDU-450-O101 Classroom Engagement and Management August 11th 2013 Shica Little A case studies a student's disruptive behavior. I’d like to take make a case study of a person I shall call Max. Now Max is a student who is normally a good student but has a I think I know everything type attitude so sometimes he becomes a disruption for he likes to show off to the class with his storehouse of knowledge and can sometimes test the teacher’s patience. In this case study I shall go through the behavior cycle as listed in our textbook, “Lee Canter’s Classroom Management for Academic Success.” For instance the first part of the cycle mentions using explicit directions or to communicate your instructions clearly and that a teacher cannot afford be vague when issuing directions in what he/she would like to have the class do. In this case, the teacher tells the class to go to their seats and begins to work on their worksheet on the planet Saturn. Max starts out going to his seat but stops to make a commentary on Debbie’s attire and then gets to his seat and then starts his assignment but then stops his work and starts to tell the class all he knows about Saturn. Now according to the text he did do what he was told but he did it his way and on his time frame. This is because the teacher did not give explicit enough instructions.

...Canter's Behavior Management Cycle: a Case Study In: Social Issues Canter's Behavior Management Cycle: a Case Study Canter's Behavior Management Cycle: A Case Study David is a five year old boy who from the very beginning displayed disruptive behavior inside and outside of the classroom. His teacher has logged his behavior, asked her administrators for support, and has referred the child for a behavioral evaluation. During this time the teacher spoke with the child’s parents who stated that his behavior was similar at home. They also shared that the majority of his disruptive behavior seemed to be his way of seeking attention. During this time David’s behavior was growing more and more disturbing and aggressive. Based on the teachers observation logs, David had difficulty getting along with other children and consistently did not follow directions. On any given day, David hits, yells, or knocks things out of peer’s hands to gain the teachers attention or get something he wants. During some part of the day David is physically aggressive toward one or two peers, this usually includes kicking or punching. Most of the children have learned to ignore him or stay away from him. When it comes to his academic skills he is at level. Although David has the skills to complete assignments or activities he is rarely unable to do so.

...Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle: Case Study Grand Canyon University- EDU 450 October 5, 2013 When a teachers have a class with one or more disruptive behaviors it can be hard on teachers and students that come to school to teach and learn. According to the reading, “Effective teachers know that by motivating students to grasp directions quickly they can stay focused on instruction, which is critical to the learning process, and less time will be exhausted on noncompliant student behavior (Canter, 2006). When classes have a lot of misbehaviors it can cause the others to lose their concentration. Some behaviors that can be consider disruptive would be speaking out of turn, getting off task, chattering with other students, sleeping in class, and yelling throughout the class. Some of the disruptive behaviors can increase if students do not have consequence and behavior is not corrected. Some behaviors can be even threatening to the safety of the students and teachers. Teachers need to be able to identify all different type of behaviors and know how to address the behaviors when they occur. The teacher should always address the behaviors when they first happen so that the student will know what not to do. When the teacher stop the behavior it will show the other students in the class that behavior is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.

Canter's Behavior Cycle

...Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle Don Crosby Grand Canyon University: EDU. 536 Jan. 23rd, 2014 Lee Canter, and his wife Marlene, are both teachers who, in 1976,, came up with their own method for discipline, and behavior management, which became one of the most popular methods used by teachers. It was called” assertive discipline”, and put forth the idea that the teacher should take charge of the classroom. The Canter’s stated that, “that students had a right to learn in a calm, orderly classroom, and teachers had a right to teach without being interrupted by misbehavior.” (Building Discipline, 11th ed., Charles) Hence, assertive discipline was born. It encourages students to make good, positive choices. Like the Wong’s. The Canters also believed that there should be procedures for the classroom, and they should laid down, and taught at the beginning of the school year. Now we all know that as much as we would like to think that our students are going to enter the classroom quietly, sit in their desks with their hands folded, waiting for our instructions, and hanging on our every word, the reality is that is never going to happen. Just asking them to take out a pencil and piece of paper could create a major catastrophe. Classroom , and behavior management is vital in creating a great learning environment. Canter said, “The foundation of managing classroom behavior rests upon your ability to motivate students to simply follow your directions. (Classroom......

To Study Information Life Cycle Management.

...EXPERIMENT NO: 1 AIM: To study Information Life Cycle Management. THEORY: INFORMATION LIFECYCLE: The information lifecycle is the “change in the value of information” over time. When data is first created, it often has the highest value and is used frequently. As data ages, it is accessed less frequently and is of less value to the organization. Understanding the information lifecycle helps to deploy appropriate storage infrastructure, according to the changing value of information. For example, in a sales order application, the value of the information changes from the time the order is placed until the time that the warranty becomes void (see Figure 1-7). The value of the information is highest when a company receives a new sales order and processes it to deliver the product. After order fulfillment, the customer or order data need not be available for real-time access. The company can transfer this data to less expensive secondary storage with lower accessibility and availability requirements unless or until a warranty claim or another event triggers its need. After the warranty becomes void, the company can archive or dispose of data to create space for other high-value information. Information Lifecycle Management Today’s business requires data to be protected and available 24 × 7. Data centers can accomplish this with the optimal and appropriate use of storage infrastructure. An effective information management policy is required to......

Mental/Behavior Case Study

...Mental/Behavioral Case Study HCS/245 April 27, 2015 Mental/Behavioral Case Study Jim Wolfe is a 45 year old owner of an auto parts store. He is constantly washing his hands, rechecking his parts list, equipment, and employee schedules. His wife raises concerns about his work performance and his inability to sleep and convinces him to see his physician. He gets a referral to see a psychiatrist and is diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). OCD is an anxiety disorder that is characterized by unreasonable thoughts and fears that lead a person into repetitive behaviors. It has two parts: obsessive and compulsive. The obsessive portion relates to a person’s repetitive thoughts and emotions. The compulsive part concerns the person’s inability to resist the repetitive actions. Trying to ignore or stop these thoughts only create more anxiety and stress. (Neighbors, 2015, Chapter 21). Based on the onset of the disease and the symptoms that Jim is displaying, he should receive a primary level of care. Treating OCD early can reduce the symptoms and the disruption that this disease can cause in daily life. Treatment for OCD consists of medications and behavior therapy. Depending on the severity of the symptoms, the doctor may only prescribe counseling. Medications such as anti-depressants or tricyclic anti-depressants help to relieve obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors and help balance brain chemicals (National Institute of Mental Health, n.d.). ......

Behavior Management Cycle

...Canter’s Behavior Management Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle Thomas Morgan Grand Canyon University: EDU 536 July 2, 2012 Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle There are many examples of misbehavior that can occur in the classroom on a daily basis. These behaviors can range from small issues like talking in class to major issues such as fighting. These issues need to be handled as early as possible by the teacher to ensure that as less of a disruption to other students occurs. If other students become disrupted by the actions of a few then these students could very well begin to engage in the disruptive behavior and begin to now cause a whole new set of issues for the classroom. Another consequence of the teacher not addressing the misbehavior immediately is that the behavior can become harmful to others or the student themselves. As a teacher, student safety should be the most important thing that the teacher is worried about. Once these behaviors are corrected and other students see that the behavior will not be allowed in the class, then they will begin to formulate within themselves how they should act and perform in that manner. An effective method of classroom management that has been proven to work is Canter’s Behavior Management Cycle. These are steps that were developed by Lee Canter as a way of preventing and handling misbehaviors in the classroom. Case Study Sanchez is a 12 year old, fifth grader in my homeroom class.
