Before you begin, make sure you watch the 4 minute video “Social Studies” at http://abavtooldev.pearsoncmg.com/-myeducationlab/singleplay.php?-projectID=earlychildhoodeducation&-clipID=EC_05_268.flv
Read the questions before you watch (you can even write them down) and take notes as you watch. Then respond to the following questions:
1. 1. What were some of the activities you observed and how do they connect to social studies? How do they help children to develop their social skills?
2. 2. How did the teacher help build the child’s character (confidence, respect, caring, nurturing, honest, etc.)? Why is it necessary to do this?
3. 3. How do behavioral (rewards/punishments) and social cognitive (influence by behavior, environment AND personal factors) theories support social skills? In essence, this question is asking you to explain the difference between behaviorism and social cognitive theory. According to each theory, how do children develop their social skills?
4. 4. What is meant by character building (sometimes called “character development”) and what are some activities to encourage it? (Remember, character involves being respectful, honest, fair, responsible, etc.).
As always, don’t forget to include your references!

When Good Discoveries Go Bad: Antibiotics
Bacteria are a type of prokaryote that are absolutely everywhere in the world, from dirt to food, and even inside other living creatures. In the past 60 years, scientists have developed some incredible drugs, called antibiotics, to fight bacterial infections. These drugs have saved millions of lives.
There is, however, a downside to the development of antibiotics, their overuse. Since the late 1970s, antibiotics have been prescribed more and more, and for less and less serious infections, which has led to many bacteria developing a resistance to these drugs. When this happens, bacteria very quickly lose their vulnerability to these antibiotics, leaving humans once again susceptible to infection.
For this reason, many people think that the over prescription of antibiotics by doctors and their addition in products like antibacterial soaps and kitchen wipes, have led to the evolution of “superbugs” that cannot be killed by normal antibiotics. Others take a different view, believing that antibiotics are chemicals like any other, and they should be allowed to be prescribed at-will and included in household products.
- Do some research and describe at least one specific example where antibiotic overuse has resulted in a negative effect.
- What was the effect of this overuse?
- How could this have been prevented?
- What do you think about antibiotic regulation?
- Who should be in control of regulating the use of antibiotics, if anyone and why?
- You happen to have a mild head-cold during your annual physical. You doctor says that she can give you some antibiotics to treat it. Based on your research, what would your response be? Why or why not would you fill the prescription?

Investigation into Cancers
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. You have been invited by your local community health department to give a PowerPoint presentation on cancers. Your goal is to educate your audience about the definition of cancer, the causes, means for early detection and preventative measures. The meeting will take place at the health department during a community health fair. Be mindful that your target audience will be composed of people from the local community who most likely will not have a background in science or medicine.
Your assignment will be to pick one cancer and discuss each of the following:
- Introduction to cancers.
- Describe to the audience the characteristics of a cancer cell.
- Indicate which cancer is the focus of your presentation.
- Identify which tissues and/or organs in the human body are affected by this cancer.
- The incidence rate of this type of cancer.
- Typical age of onset for this type of cancer.
- Explain the risk factors and/or causes of this cancer.
- How this cancer is detected and diagnosed.
- Pictures and/or illustrations of cancer cells.
- The risk of metastasis for this cancer.
- How this cancer is treated including the long-term prognosis. What are the survival rates?
- Measures that people may take to prevent this cancer both medical and holistic.
- Reference page including citations in standard APA format.
Your PowerPoint presentation should be written with your audience in mind. Remember, your audience does not have a science or medical background, so you will need to translate any “jargon” into something that they will understand.
You must write your “script” of what you will say to your audience in the notes section of each PowerPoint slide. Each slide will have a picture and/or bullet points, along with your notes located in the notes section below the slide, with the specific talking points you will deliver to the audience.
The presentation should be between 10–15 slides, not including the title and references slides.
Creating an Effective PowerPoint Presentation
An effective PowerPoint presentation will include:
- An introduction: bulleted list of background and key points
- A body: multiple slides, each with one key point
- A conclusion: bulleted list of major points
For support creating your PowerPoint presentation, including tips for creating a successful presentation, review the following article in the Kaplan Writing Center:
