Reflecting upon my expectations for the diversity summit, I realize that my anticipations in regard to the course were in a similar vein; I had expected the main area of focus to be the integration of a diverse student body into a residence hall community. While this is an important outcome of the course, I now understand that it cannot be achieved without an understanding of social-identity. The development of a social-identity, which I look forward to delving into further in the course, is likely the topic of conversation in the summit that made me most realize my naivety. While I had known previously that the human mind works categorically and schematically, I had not yet considered how this could be applied, or even in the normative sense, how it should be applied to social-identity. The most interesting example utilized by Dr. Cullen was the “...
“An array of knowledges, skills, abilities and contacts possessed and used by Communities of Color to survive and resist racism and other forms of oppression” encompasses the main idea of Community Cultural Wealth. It is vital to understand that students will step foot into the classroom with a variety of cultures zipped up in their backpacks, and it is our job as educators to make sure that equality is instilled/taught in our classrooms. The second a student feels a sense of discrimination, whether from ourselves or their fellow classmate(s), is when the safe and comforting environment of the classroom begins to diminish. Here I will discuss just how important it is to see the differences amongst students as an advantage
Living in the most diverse county in Maryland—Howard County—exposed me to a multicultural community. Although, we all looked different, many of my high school friends did not embrace the cultures associated with the facial features and body types that defined them. The school district was more or less segregated by financial wealth. Now, as I attend George Mason University, an institution regarded as one of the most diverse universities on the East coast, I am finding the same patterns. This school is so rich with culture, but we segregate ourselves in order to protect ourselves. We do not cross cultural lines because we fear the rejection of others and embrace the comfort of our own culture.
University of Illinois Urbana Champaign has a very diverse campus. Bousfield alone, the hall I am assigned, has a large population of international students. My job is to foster an environment that is safe, comfortable, and respectable. In order to ensure my residents’ respect for one another cultures, I must lead by example. Educating myself on other social identities will aid in my floor’s success. “Our ongoing examination of who we are in our full humanity, embracing all of our identities, creates the possibility of building alliance that may ultimately free us all,” read The Complexity of Identity: Who I Am?

We learned about an experience that challenged everyone's perspective. Multicultural Student Services are designed to support and advocate for underrepresented student populations as well as serve as an educational resource for majority student populations in an effort to ensure that Coastal Carolina University remains an inclusive campus. I learned to use my statements when I am referring to a statement as well as being respectful of other people's opinions. Multicultural competence has three parts to it one was aware which Is one’s own assumptions, values and biases. The second one was knowledge which is the worldwide of others, the last one was Skills which is to implement certain strategies and techniques. Learned that Microaggression is used on the daily which is when people communicate in a hostile manner and
A. When infants are born prior to 24 weeks gestation a decision has to be made to resuscitate or not to resuscitate.
B. Consideration to resuscitate infants born before 24 week gestation is controversial.
C. Thesis statement: Although infants born at less than 24 week gestation can survive, infants should not be resuscitated prior to 24 week gestation because there is a very low survival rate and infant who do survive suffer from high health morbidities with unbearable medical cost.
In the book titled Inherit the Wind by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, they both leave the audience with hints as to why they designed the play the way that they did. Before reading Act One, both Lawrence and Lee leave a message talking about the story’s exodus. They say: “The events which took place in Dayton, Tennessee, during the scorching July of 1925 are clearly the genesis of this play. It has, however, an exodus entirely on its own” (Lawrence and Lee, 1). Exodus is defined as a trip made by people to escape a hostile situation, while genesis is also known as the origin. The authors used these words because they have a double meaning. Both the words genesis and exodus fall into one of the main themes of the story: religion.

“The journey had begun. And now the fear back again, the fear of the unknown,”
From the passage this quotation is located in, the reader can hypothesize that throughout this novel Stephen Kumalo could become an epic hero. One could especially foreshadow him being a hero due the description of Johannesburg being “the great city where boys were killed crossing the street” (44). To be an epic hero, a character must undergo an event that leads to an adventure or quest, the hero must prove himself many times, and the hero is rewarded after the journey.
The last piece of information of importance in They Say, I Say is the use of templates for revision. “Asking yourself these large-scale revision questions will help you see how well you’ve managed the “they say / I say” framework and this in turn should help you see where further revisions are needed” (140). The templates help the writer create a strong structure for essay guides the reader to understand clearly the overall conclusion of the writing. The templates not only assist in giving direction of what type of essay you are wanting to write, but can give ideas on how to connect parts of paragraphs in the essay. This makes clear all communicative parts of the essay: the emotions expressed in the topic, the opposing arguments to initiate

The law of conservation which state that energy remains constant it cannot be created or destroyed. However, it possible to transferred energy from one object to another(Conservation of entergy (n.d). It has been said that “When potential energy is converted into any of the six forms of kinetic energy, the total energy in the system before the conversion equals the total energy after conversion” as noted by (Conservation of entergy (n.d). How the law of conservation relative to energy use and energy conversions it has been stated that mass and energy are believed to be equivalent because one can be converted into the other.
