Once you find your person or group, take a screenshot of their profile and save their page, and do some further research on the country or region they come from:
find information about their level of development and standard of living ( HDI- Fertility rate, GNP, disease etc )
Issues in their area or country ( government stability, economy, debt, war etc ) which might affect their level of development.
Main economic activities and growth rate
Climate, resources and physical nature of the country
Any other information that will help you with your decision
You will create a 1 page document and 3 minute presentation recommending strategies that will help improve the standard of living and break the cycle of poverty of the community represented by an individual
You need to suggest the strategies we have discussed in class: AID, FDI, Fair Trade, Debt Relief, Market and Trade Access, Government policy, Remittances, as well as micro-financing through Kiva. If you find any other strategy make sure to ask your teacher first.
You also need to clearly explain how your ideas will break the cycle of poverty of your recipient’s community
All of your decisions must be supported with statistical and anecdotal evidence.
Now that you have a good understanding of a disorder, its prevalence and its symptoms, it is time to look at stigma and treatment.
Researching Psychology. A message from Ms Vance:
“YIS has JSTOR, which you can browse by subject, as well as basic and advanced searches of course. Here’s a link to the Psychology section of JSTOR, which you can search within exclusively. You’ve got access at school by IP address, but to use it at home, you have to create a personal account while you’re at school first.
EbscoHost – Science Reference Center database also has psychology resources, although they are likely easier to access if you look at the subject terms SRC uses before you start searching. Working with databases, as you know, can be frustrating when encountering them for more or less the first time. I would be DELIGHTED to come into your classes and train kids how to use them. 🙂
Same goes for History, economics and geography. They’ve been exposed to these databases as part of their PP but subject specific training on how to use them on a DP level would be very helpful for them.
