John has not had time to work on his online assignment on psychological theory. He found a website that has an article with the content he needs to complete his assignment. However, he has only 30 minutes before his assignment is due. John believes that the author of the article described psychological theory so well that it would take John hours to paraphrase the material. John decides to copy several sentences and one short paragraph from the article and paste it into his own paper. He includes the author in the references and believes that this appropriately cites the author.
Sally has a writing assignment due. She has written about the topic before in a previous course and received 100% on that paper. She decides to include several paragraphs from her previous work in her current paper.

Part 2: Reflection In 250-500 words, write a reflection regarding the process of self-assessing. Address the following questions:

Self-assessments are crucial in helping students to monitor their own academic progress and helping guide ownership of learning. As students are working through their self-assessments, the teacher can continuously engage students in their own progress and then adjust instruction in response to meet their learning needs. Along with the self-assessment, students need to know how they will be graded and how to monitor their progress, which is done through a rubric. A rubric is an assessment tool that provides student’s with clear expectations for their deliverable. The rubric scaffolds to show a clear distinction between categories in order to achieve the target learning goals for the student’s assignment deliverable.
Review the “Learning Plan Template” to complete this assignment.
Complete Part 3: Assessment Plan.
Part 1: Assessment Plan
After researching different assessment methods, build on your completed assignment from Topic 3 by completing “Part 3: Assessment Plan”. Use the learning objective and educational goal created in the previous topic and create a formative and summative assessment and aligning rubric for one student you have been working with in your field experience. The assessment and rubric should be grade-level appropriate and allow the student to self-assess his or her work and monitor the progress toward his or her long-term educational goal. The rubric should demonstrate expectations for the assessment deliverable. In addition, include any necessary modifications to show how you plan to differentiate your assessment to meet diverse learning needs.
This assessment will be implemented in Clinical Field Experience C in Topic 5.
Part 2: Reflection
In 250-500 words, write a reflection regarding the process of self-assessing.
Address the following questions:

How does this monitoring process help in tracking progress, assessing data, and identifying patterns and gaps in learning?
How does the process of sharing the rubric help to establish guidelines and routines with students for them to monitor and assess their own learning?
What other progress monitoring methods can be used to track data?
How do you prepare instruction for diverse learning needs and make accommodations to meet exceptional needs and learning language needs?
When addressing individual student needs, how is a private setting for instruction that considers student data confidentiality maintained?
How do you determine your approach to collaborate with colleagues in a proper and ethical manner?

Support your findings with a minimum of three scholarly resources.
Submit the “Learning Plan Template” with your reflection as one deliverable.

Create a 4 page essay paper that discusses World Geography

Create a 4 page essay paper that discusses World Geography.It is undeniable that human beings derived numerous benefits from the study of earth’s geography through ages. Jerry and Martin (2000) agreed that geographic knowledge was instrumental or rather paramount during construction of the first world map. This first map commonly referred to as the Babylonian world map dates back to 600BC. According to Talbert and Richard (2009), invention of geography as a definite field of study would later be credited to Pythagoras, renowned for his approved claim that the earth is spherical. Subsequently, Pythagoras claim would open doors to advanced arithmetic perception of the spherical earth. From 2nd Century AD, Roman scholars employed the use of latitudes and longitudes in determining geographical difference in time. Harrison, Massey and Richards (2004) said that by the 10th Century, skilled geographers from the west could calculate with high precision the distance between various points on earth. This was the time when researchers started documenting detailed knowledge about the planet’s habitability.Eventually, medieval studies of the earth’s phenomena would soon pave way for western explorer like Christopher Columbus, accredited with discovery of new lands, especially America. In the early 18th Century, geography scholars struggled with the problem of longitudinal relations with time. According to James and Trapasso (2006), conflicts surrounding this problem came to a halt in 1760s when John Harrison used a chronometer and accurately acknowledged the Greenwich meridian as the reference longitude.
