Using the “Labor Scheduling” document, develop a daily schedule of labor for the entire early childhood care center that adheres to the recommended adult-child ratios provided in the “Adult-Child Ratios” document.

Go to the “Budget” document. Find the tab “Budget for Next Year.” Locate the balance for next year (line 42). Set tuition fees for each program for the upcoming year by typing each fee into the appropriate green cell. Be sure the balance for next year exceeds the balance for this year to account for the changes that come with expanding your early childhood care center. (The balance for this year can be found on line 40 on the tab called “Budget for This Year.”) explaining the following: The impact of tuition changes on the program and on the families it serves How you will spend this money to manage the facilities and contribute to a safe and positive learning environment for the children enrolled at your early childhood care center PART 2: Notice the change in staff and salary in this year’s budget and next year’s budget. Using both budgets, write 2–3 paragraphs explaining the staff and salary changes that were made and infer the reasons why. You anticipate 125 children will be enrolled in the new facility. Using the “Labor Scheduling” document, develop a daily schedule of labor for the entire early childhood care center that adheres to the recommended adult-child ratios provided in the “Adult-Child Ratios” document. Note that the Monday schedules for three floaters are given. Use the following information to create the schedule: The center is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Staff in full-time positions work 40 hours per week. Staff in part-time positions work as needed for the early childhood care center but no more than 30 hours per week. Floaters are not assigned to specific rooms. (They may provide support in the toddler rooms, the pre-school rooms, and the pre-K rooms as necessary.) Review the number of staff in the “Budget for Next Year” and the labor schedule you developed in Step 2. Write a papers explaining any changes you would make to the staffing projections to adhere to the adult-child ratios found in the “Adult-Child Ratios” document. According to your budget, you decided to save money on custodial services by hiring a contractor instead of a full-time custodian. Write a 1-page paper describing the role and responsibilities of the custodian and explaining the advantages and disadvantages of using a contractor instead of using someone on the payroll. PART 3: Use the “USDA Choose My Plate” website to describe how you will manage the nutrition program at Sunny Skies Day Care. Your 3- to 4-page description should include the following: An explanation of your personnel needs and the responsibilities of your food service personnel A sample 1-week menu plan that includes an explanation of how it adheres to nutritional guidelines An explanation of how you will meet health regulations and accommodate special diets

What type of research method was used (e.g., case study, naturalistic observation, survey, correlation, experiment)? How do you know?

The questions and scoring rubric for this assignment are:What is/are the research questions of the study? You typically find this information in the last paragraph of the introduction. What type of research method was used (e.g., case study, naturalistic observation, survey, correlation, experiment)? How do you know? Who were the subjects (participants) that constituted the sample in the study? Gender, age, ethnicity, number of subjects, etc.? How would this influence the generalizability of the results to the populations of interest? Why? Remembering back to the more common problems with psychological research, what problems can you see in this study? (Common problems: sampling bias, experimenter bias, validity, reliability, generalizability) Why do you think these problems exist in your study? What conclusions did the authors draw from the results of the study? Give your opinion about the authors’ assertions. What do you agree with, not agree with? What is useful, or not useful? And most important, WHY? Part 2 (35% of the paper) Using the internet and/or any library databases you wish, research any two (2) areas of gender differences you wish to study. Follow the writing assignment instructions/template in your write-up.

What does the primitive mean to artists such as Gauguin and Bernard?

“Abigail Solomon-Godeau, “Going Native: Paul Gauguin and the Invention of Primitivist Modernism,” in The Expanded Discourse: Feminism and Art History, N. Broude and M. Garrard, eds. (New York: Harper Collins, 1986)” and answer following questions Questions 1. What does the primitive mean to artists such as Gauguin and Bernard? 2. Why were they looking for it in a relatively remote region such as Brittany? 3. How did Gauguin express his search for the primitive (or Primitivism) in The Vision after the Sermon?

Consider Benjamin’s distinction “between what is meant and the way of meaning it” (257) and how the intention of a text and its “modes of intention” can create intratextual conflict (74).

Consider Benjamin’s distinction “between what is meant and the way of meaning it” (257) and how the intention of a text and its “modes of intention” can create intratextual conflict (74). Although Benjamin’s apparent subject matter is translation from one language to another, his observations can be applied to all writing, for in any text, there is the intentio—even if we cannot apprehend it and even if we ascribe no interpretive importance to authorial intention—and there is the modus. How does this phenomenon impact approaches to textual interpretation? Should any legitimate hermeneutic consider the possibility of intentionality/modality conflict? In other words, if one “knows” what a text means to say, is discussion of the manner of meaning merely academic? As part of your discussion and analysis of the intersection of mode/intention and its effect on textual interpretation, you must include (in a way of your own choosing, but a significant way) an analysis/discussion of the episode “Darmok” we watched in class during week 1. Explain.
