The Differences Between School Administration From School Supervision

How to Cite a Disney Movie

When writing a research essay for a high school or college course, a page of citations must follow it. Commonly known as a bibliography or works cited page, these references help substantiate the information you use to support your arguments or claims within the body of your paper. Though books and online articles make up most bibliographies, any movies you discuss within your paper must also be cited. Make sure you use the correct format to reference a Disney film using MLA (Modern Languages Association) style. Type the title of the film in italicized text, followed by a period and two spaces. Capitalize all words in the title when typing it out; for example, "Beauty And The Beast" rather than "Beauty and the Beast." Follow the title with the director of the film. Abbreviation should be used where applicable, such as "Dir. Gary Trousdale" or "Perf. Paige O'Hara." List the film studio (or distributor) and release date of the film. After the …

How to Use Tally Sheets

Determine the problem or event to observe. A tally sheet can be used to track data on a specific event or problem. This issue must be defined before the data is collected. Typical data that might be collected on a tally sheet are the number of cars that pass through a given intersection during a particular time frame, the number of pedestrians who pass a particular point in a sidewalk or the people who enter an office. More detailed information may sometimes be collected, such as the gender of people tallied. The tally sheet offers a way of collecting data in an organized manner. Develop precise descriptions of what will be counted. A list of examples or descriptions should be created. Only information that you want included is listed. This also consists of determining how the information will be counted. The team creating the tally sheet should also give instructions to the data collectors as to how the data should be recorded and counted.
Decide the duration of your data collection…

How to Write a Proposal for After-School Programs

A good proposal for an after-school program anticipates the questions and concerns of potential supporters, providing forward-thinking details as if the program already is in operation. Relevant information ranges from broad to specific, from target outcomes to day-to-day procedures. Make sure to follow any specific proposal guidelines provided by the school, district or funding organization to which you are applying. Research and Development The first step in writing your proposal is assessing the extent to which an after-school program is needed. The best way to do this is to conduct a needs assessment survey. This is a physical survey distributed to members of the community. Sample questions include asking parents to choose the type of child care they need, days and times that they would utilize child care and the payment they consider reasonable per week per child. Once parents' needs are clarified, establish a mission statement and a list of objectives. The mission statement…

How to Create an Outline for a Healthy Eating Essay

The key to writing any essay outline is understanding your subject matter and the argument you wish to put forth. It's important to note that "healthy eating" differs from "healthy diets," in that a diet, at least in colloquial terms, refers to a temporary adjustment of eating habits, whereas "healthy eating" is a lifelong commitment. Using that as a platform, creating an outline can assist in organizing ideas to create a coherent piece. Label your first section with the first Roman numeral (I). Begin by discussing unhealthy eating habits. It may surprise a student of nutritional health how little the average person understands about a balanced diet. Break this section down into three parts and label them "1.," "2." and "3." Let this introduction serve to put forth the benefits of healthy eating, describe unhealthy eating patterns and their ill effects; and point out common misconceptions about unhealthy eating (for examp…

How to Sell Your Term Paper Online

9 Back-to-School Traditions to Document Educational Milestones

With the anticipation of “back to school” upon us, moms everywhere are in preparation mode. We’re buying backpacks, planning lunches and are ready to execute those back-to-school traditions that we hold dear. Here are 9 BTS traditions that my family loves. We hope you do, too! Back-to-School Photo Traditions
Take the traditional BTS photo traditions to a new level with a detailed focus on what you aim to document. Here are three simple perspectives when shooting your traditional back-to-school photos. 1. Track your child’s growth: Use an easel, instead of a handheld board, to document your child’s growth — and take the picture in front of the easel. As you continue the tradition over time, your child’s height will also be documented. Even if you don’t have an easel, shoot the image next to the same tree or other visual marker instead of a blank wall. 2. Write a statement: Actually, document your child’s statement! Ask the same question before and after the school year and see how her res…

How to Calculate a Human Development Index

Life Expectancy Index A key element in calculating the HDI is life expectancy at birth. The life expectancy factor helps to determine how long the average citizen lives, how healthy she can remain during her life and how much she can contribute in her working life. The HDI measures life expectancy from 20 to 85 years. Countries with longer life expectancies receive higher HDI scores than those in which people die at a younger age. For instance, in the fictitious country of Generica, the life expectancy at birth is 70 years. The life expectancy index would be (70-20)/(85-20), or 0.77.
Education Index The education index is another important component in the HDI calculation. The education index is found by dividing the number of years of schooling for adults age 25 and older by the expected years of schooling for children of school age. For instance, adult citizens of Generica typically go to school for 12 years, but school-age children are expected to go for at least 15 years. The edu…

Common French Phrases

Learn how to speak French in this free online French language course for beginners. Get easy lessons on learning useful common phrases for business or travel to France, with a pronunciation guide. Series Summary French (Le Français) is a Romance language; that means it came from Latin, like Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian, not that it is the best language for an amorous exchange. Yet, French is often thought of as the language of love , perhaps because of the images we remember of the hopelessly romantic Pepé Le Pew trying to capture a certain unfortunate black cat in the arms of his French embrace. Surprisingly, French is the second most popular language for study, the first being English. Non-native students who learn French are predominantly taught the variant known as “français neutre,” or Parisian French, which is mostly erudite and free of regional coloring. Approximately 175 million people speak French worldwide, not only in France, but also the countries of: Belgium, Switzer…

How to Lose a Bad Reputation

Every kid experiences teasing from others during adolescence, but sometimes that good-natured jabbing turns into something more serious. Kids who make a few silly remarks become "airheads," and others say that shy kids are "stuck up." Certain kids knowingly act in ways that will gain them a bad reputation and after they mature, that bad image isn't so cool anymore. Here's how to lose a bad reputation.
Get rid of the attitude that the reputation is unfair. Often there is a person or group behind spreading hurtful reputations and even if it's untrue, harboring anger about it only fuels the fire. Instead, put your focus on what you want for your reputation. Separate from old friends who helped give you the bad reputation. As the old saying goes, birds of a feather flock together, and regardless of how open-minded people want to be it's natural for them to assume you still have bad habits judging by the company you keep. Fess up to your old reputation a…

Grants for a Non-Accredited Christian Education

In-House Grants The best avenue to search for grants for a non-accredited Christian education is to look at the school itself. Many non-accredited schools will have grants and other forms of financial assistance to help students financially afford the education. Each school will have its own application process for its grants, so each grant will have to be applied for separately. The school may also have subject-specific grants. If an individual intends on focusing on a particular area, this may be an advantage in applying for a particular grant.
Lilly Endowment Grants The Lilly Endowment Inc., gives religious grants to individuals who seek to enrich the lives of religious individuals in North America. These grants are aimed at financially assisting individuals who want to prepare for a life as a minister, and there is no requirement that the education be at an accredited Christian university. There are also continuing educational grants for current ministers who want to continue pur…

How to Help an Autistic Child

Make your child a part of your family, not the center of it. No child benefits from all of his parents' attention. Provide consistency. Your autistic child needs you to establish a set routine that he can count on every day. If you feel disorganized, if you are trying to juggle too many balls, your autistic child will respond to this confusion with bizarre behaviors.
Use the same set of words every time you reward him, likewise when you reprimand him. Autistic children do not learn well from experience. Often each event is a completely new occurrence to the child, even if the exact same thing happened yesterday. Use behavior modification to correct undesirable behaviors. Use tangible rewards to increase motivation. You should provide 10 praise statements for every one corrective statement. Notice your child's cues to stop a misbehavior before it occurs. A child might whine, or begin avoiding eye contact. Pay attention to his warning signs, give him a basic instruction, guide …
