1. (AACSB) Analysis 

You‘re the CEO of a company that sells golf equipment, including clubs, bags, and balls. When your company was started and had only a handful of employees, you were personally able to oversee the conduct of your employees. But with your current workforce of nearly fifty, it‘s time to prepare a formal code of conduct in which you lay down some rules that employees must follow in performing job-related activities. As a model for your own code, you‘ve decided to use Macy‘s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics.  

Go to the company‘s Web site (http://www.federated- fds.com/investors/governance/documents/code_of_business_conduct_and_ethics.pdf) to view its posted code of business conduct.  

Your document won‘t be as thorough as Macy‘s, but it will cover the following areas: (1) conflicts of interest; (2) acceptance of gifts, services, or entertainment; (3) protection of confidential information; (4) use of company funds or assets for personal purposes; (5) competing fairly and ethically; and (6) adherence to code. Draw up a code of conduct for your company.

2. (AACSB) Reflective Skills 

Think of someone whom you regard as an ethical leader. It can be anyone connected with you—a businessperson, educator, coach, politician, or family member. Explain why you believe the individual is ethical in his or her leadership.

 

Forensic Biology unit 2 discussion board 2

 

The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.

 

At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.

 

The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.

 

Assignment Guidelines

 

The bones of the face, or skull as it is sometimes referred to, are there for the purpose of protecting and supporting the entrance to the digestive system and the respiratory system. These bones also provide sites for the attachment of muscles that control the mouth, eyes, scalp, and lower jaw. The bones and muscles of the face and head are all needed by forensics teams to recreate what was once the face of an individual. This is known as facial reconstruction. The skull provides clues to the personal appearance. Facial reconstruction can put a name on an unidentified body in a modern forensic case.

 

  • In 4–6 paragraphs, address the following:
    • Why do you think facial reconstruction is important to a crime scene? Explain.
    • What do you think are the most significant challenges associated with facial reconstruction? Explain.
    • What is the most important historical contribution to the study of facial reconstruction? Why?
    • What role do you think technology has played in improving facial reconstruction techniques? Provide an example to support your argument.
  • Post a new topic to the Discussion Board that contains your responses to the above questions.
  • Comment on at least 2 other students' posts.

For the purpose of this Discussion, imagine that you are a licensing representative for several early childhood programs in an urban community. Part of your professional responsibilities include conducting regular visits to early childhood centers and family child care homes to make sure that licensing standards are being met. On a recent visit to a child care center, one of the teachers in the classroom expresses the following concern:



Jose is an 18-month-old in our class. Since he joined our program two months ago, both my co-teacher and I have noticed that he that does not seem to interact with individuals or objects in ways I would expect of a child his age. For instance, he rarely plays with toys and seems resistant to frequent touches and affection offered by either of us. I raised my concerns to his parents, asking them if they have noticed anything similar in their home environment. Their response was "he seems pretty typical to us, let's just wait and see."

 

Consider the information on developmental screening presented in the article "Snapshots: Incorporating Developmental Screening into Programs and Services for Young Children," and the DVD segment "Screening and Assessment".

Assignment 1: LASA 2—Observational and Motor Learning

During the period of early childhood, mastering fine motor skills is a very important process needed for physical and cognitive development. However, for a number of different reasons, there are some children who do not develop at the same pace as an average child. It is important for parents and physicians to recognize children who are not on track developmentally because the earlier the cause of the delay can be determined, the earlier parents can start working with the child to correct or minimize these deficits. Often, the earlier the children begins to work on their developmental deficits, the greater the advancements they can make.

By the age of three, a child should be able to do the following:

  • Use a spoon by themselves
  • Draw a vertical and horizontal line
  • String large beads
  • Snip paper with scissors
  • Roll clay or play dough into a "snake"

Conduct an Internet search using the two phrases listed below. Your results will help you better understand the kind of milestones that are used to assess the development of fine motor skills in young children.

  • Fine motor skills milestones
  • Child development milestones

Using the module readings, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, research observational and motor learning and activities that can be used to help develop motor skills. Then, address the following:

  • Describe in detail how a young child’s fine motor skills are developed—making sure to include the theory of motor-skill learning that best fits this situation.
  • Explain whether any motor tasks or skills can be accomplished via observational learning. Justify your response.
  • Now, consider a situation in which a young child (3–4 years old) is developmentally delayed in fine motor skill development. Create a strategy which would help the child strengthen his or her fine motor skills.
  • You can find a number of activities online which purport to help develop these skills. From a theoretical viewpoint, be sure to explain how these activities will aid a child’s fine motor skill development. Make sure that you reference at least one peer-reviewed article in addition to any Web sites you find and describe these activities as part of your development strategy.

Write a 3–4-page paper in Word format. It should be double-spaced and in 12 point, Times New Roman font with regular one-inch margins and free of typographical and grammatical errors. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Be sure to include a title page with a running head and reference page.
