Ability Grouping in Education - Ability grouping is a common practice in today’s classrooms, which involves using intelligence tests to place individuals in certain academic groups with others whom have the same abilities. Two types of ability grouping include between-class and within-class grouping, which provide both benefits and hindrances in a classroom setting. When a school or teacher groups students “based on their ability or achievement,” the school is practicing between-class ability grouping (Santrock 125). In many cases, between-class ability grouping is used in a high school setting as a way to group students with similar goals and skills....   [tags: Intelligence Tests, Material]

The Hudsons Bay Company - Lawmaking is a complicated, complex and comprehensive process which involves the locating, focusing and directing of social control. There are strong theories about the essence of social control. Some sociologists have even concluded that social control as a concept should be discarded totally because its power as an analytical tool was weakened through an unhealthy combination of overuse and under-explanation. As Chunn and Gavigan point out, it is not sufficient to use social control as an analytic tool when one begins with the approach that (1) either the meaning of the concept is too obvious to need definition or (2) the concept is undefinable but can be used without being defined....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Characters in Shakespeare's Hamlet - Shakespeare has always had the gift of creating characters each with their own unique facets that, in combination, make for a play full of multi-dimensional characters. In the case of Shakespeare’s perhaps most famous play Hamlet, a more prominent role is held by the defining traits of each of the more important characters. When looked at from a more in-depth perspective one would find that many of these traits are revealed through an inference inherent to their speech. In Hamlet’s case his most eloquent dialogue shows his analytical mind, but also poses a question over Hamlet’s confidence: with circumstances of precarious matter, does he lack the confidence to be decisive, procrastinating,...   [tags: William Shakespeare]

Early sci-fi employed slow-paced storylines and wishfully extrapolated every technological breakthrough. However, more recent texts have a stronger foundation in scientific theory, and serve as a critical mirror to the advances of humanity....   [tags: essays research papers] 678 words

The Great Chain of Being - A.O. Lovejoy begins his introduction to The Great Chain of Being by attempting to explain what is meant by the study of the history of ideas. In doing this, he is referring to "something at once more specific and less general than the history of philosophy." The key difference lies in the units of which each is made. The history of philosophy contains concepts and movements that must be broken down into smaller fragments, or unit ideas. According to Lovejoy, the history of ideas is comparable to analytical chemistry; the primary focus of the historian is to separate the individual units from the greater picture or, in terms of analytical chemistry, to isolate them into their comp...   [tags: A.O.

Mental Retardation - 1. L. L. Thurston’s theory of intelligence identifies seven recognizable intellectual abilities: spatial ability, memory, perceptual speed, word fluency, numerical ability, reasoning, and verbal meaning. Thurman argued multiple factors go into making up intelligence and although there may be some correlation between mental abilities, each ability is relatively independent of each other. A person having remarkable spatial ability or the ability to rotate an object and estimate horizontal and vertical dimensions might be deficient in word fluency or the ability to generate words rapidly....   [tags: Intellectual Abilities, Tests] 866 words

History of Computers - History of Computers Historically, the most important early computing instrument is the abacus, which has been known and widely used for more than 2,000 years. Another computing instrument, the astrolabe, was also in use about 2,000 years ago for navigation. Blaise Pascal is widely credited with building the first "digital calculating machine" in 1642. It performed only additions of numbers entered by means of dials and was intended to help Pascal's father, who was a tax collector.

Descartes And Hume - There are three ways in which one is able to find truth: through reason (A is A), by utilizing the senses (paper burns) or by faith (God is all loving). As the period of the Renaissance came to a close, the popular paradigm for philosophers shifted from faith to reason and finally settling on the senses. Thinkers began to challenge authorities, including great teachers such as Aristotle and Plato, and through skepticism the modern world began. The French philosopher, René Descartes who implemented reason to find truth, as well as the British empiricist David Hume with his usage of analytic-synthetic distinction, most effectively utilized the practices of skepticism in the modern world....   [tags: Philosophy Philosophical History Essays] 554 words
