- I began my undergraduate career as an adult student and single mother with the intention of pursuing a degree in business administration. In my first semester I took an introduction to psychology course which uncovered my passion for the subject. My specific research interest became clear in my junior year while taking a course called Race, Gender, and the Media, where I was introduced to the concept of “colorblind racism”.

Equality in Opportunity and Equality in Outcome

- ... Being the state of New Jersey spends $300 million dollars a year to subsidize Camden's schools, that comes out to $100 Million dollars per scholar. About ten years ago, I noticed that most of my new neighbors were coming from the city. I got to know a few of them, shooting the breeze and lending them things from time to time. The first thing I noticed was that they didn't cut their lawns that often, and weren't into home maintenance and repairs that our homeowners association requires. For instance, a ten foot piece of my neighbor's siding fell off two years ago and it's still sitting in his backyard where it landed....   [tags: diversity, equality, fairness, academia]

A Reflection On The Mind, The Truth, And The Man 's Eyes

- Jesus said that He is “the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (JN 14:6, KJV). Jesus is truth. God is light. The Bible is clear about the importance of honesty. “He that walketh upright walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known” (PR10:9. KJV). Walking upright is integrity. It is from this concept that the sayings related to hanging one’s head with shame have come. In society, we should all be ashamed, for it has become a place where integrity is a foreign thought, and the classroom has become a place where cheating is too common....   [tags: Academic dishonesty, Cheating, Academia, Morality]

Essay : Pros And Cons Of Cheating By Hailee Scherzer

I Enjoyed The Article By Zandra Jordan

- This week, I enjoyed the article by Zandra Jordan the most. It explains that to acknowledge students’ rights to their own language includes an approach that “promotes equality in writing assessment,” and one way that happens is by “recognizing AAE as ‘a rule-governed language system’ ” (Jordan, 99). In order to give students the rights to use their own vernacular, instructors must “change their [attitude and] language [used] to describe the writing process…” (Jordan, 99). To summate, instructors need to recognize that students are coming from different backgrounds and try to meet them where they are, allowing them to use the language they are accustomed to while still teaching them EAE; the...   [tags: Writing, Creative writing, Academia, Linguistics]
