What is an element?
 
A pure substance made up of all of the same type of atoms.
Who first defined the term "element"?
 
Robert Boyle
What is the law of conservation of mass?
 
In any chemical reaction, particles are neither created nor destroyed (they are only rearranged). It was discovered by Lavoisier
What is the periodic law?
 
The properties of elements vary periodically with their atomic number
What are isotopes?
 
Atoms with the same atomic number but diferent masses.
What is the difference between an atom in ground state and an atom/ion in excited state?
 
In ground state, the electrons of the atom are in their lowest possible energy level. In excited state, one or more elections have absorbed energy and are not in their lowest energy levels.
What is the difference between a compound and a mixture?
 
A compound is made of atoms or two or more lements which have been chemically combined and require chemical reactions to break apart. Mixtures are material systems made up of two or more different substances which are mixed but NOT chemically combined.
Why are distinctive colours obtained when certain metals are placed in a flame?
 
There is an excitation og electrons in the metal atoms, moving them to higher energy states, and there is a subsequent emission of light energy as the electrons return to lower energy states.
Who discovered the plum pudding model of the atom?
Briefly explain this model.
 
Thomson discovered this model.
Electrons were thought to be embedded in a solid positive charge like raisins in a plum.
What does the mass number tell you?
 
The number of protons + the number of neutrons in an atom.
What does the atomic number tell you?
 
The number of protons in an atom.
How many electrons can be held in the 1st,2nd and 3rd shells of an atom?
 
1st shell: 2 electrons
2nd shell: 8 electrons
3rd shell: 8 electrons, but can hold up to 18 if there at two or more electrons in the fourth shell)
What is the order of size of subshells?
 
s<p<d<f
What is an orbital?
 
Regions that make up subshells in which up to two electrons can move.
Each orbital within a subshell must be filled with one electrons before any orbitals are filled with their second electron.
How many orbitals are there in each subshell?
 
s contains 1 orbital
p contains 3 orbitals
d contains 5 orbitals
f contains 7 orbitals

Briefly explain Rutherford's experiment.
 
Rutherford fired a string of alpha particles at a target of thin gold foil.
The paths of the particles were determined by studying the bursts of light they produced on the screen behind the metal.
Most of the high-energy alpha particles passed through the foil.
Some were deflected and bounced through a high angle and some almost bounced straight back.
What can be concluded from Rutherford's experiments?
 
Most of the volume of an atom must be empty space (in order for the particles to have passed through)
There must be a positive matter of a nucleus in atoms that caused some particles to be repelled and bounce back.
What is an element?
 
"Pure" substances made up of all the same type of atoms.
First defined by Robert Boyle.
What is the law of conservation of mass?
 
In any chemical reaction, particles are neither created nor destroyed (they are only rearranged).
Discovered by Lavoisier.
What is the periodic law?
 
The properties of elements vary periodically with their atomic number.
What are isotopes?
 
Atoms with the same atomic number but different mass numbers.
What is the difference between an atom/ion in ground state and excited state?
 
Ground state atoms have electrons in their lowest possible energy level.
Excited state atom/ions in which one or more electrons have absorbed energy and are not in their lowest energy levels.

1.3 Ren Xiong (1823-1857) Self-Portrait Undated, Hanging Scroll, Ink and color on paper One of the first self-portraits; relatively naturalistic modeling of the face and upper body contrasts dramatically with the powerful linear rendering of the garments, as though to juxtapose the artist's contemporary reality with the antique traditions to which Chinese painting might pay homage

 
1.8 Ren Yi (Ren Bonian,1840-1895) Five Successful Sons, 1877, Qing Dynasty Hanging Scroll, Ink and color on paper This image depicts a tenth century scholar named Dou Yujun, of the state of Zhou, whose five sons all passed the imperial civil service examinations.

 
1.10 Ren Yi (Ren Bonian, 1840-1895), Bird on a Branch, 1882, from the twelve-leaf Album of Figures, Flowers, and Birds, ink and color on paper
,Ren Yi creates the bird’s body from blank paper left in reserve against a gray ink background, one that suggests a hazy tree or rock in the background. The surface-covering composition, and the complete absence of outlines, strongly suggests Ren Yi’s familiarity with Western watercolor paint- ing, but the abbreviated, close-up composition possesses the power of poetic suggestion typical of the best Chinese painting.

3.10 Lin Fengmian (1900-1991) Composition, ca. 1934, Oil on canvas Lost, from Meishu zazhi [Studio] no.2 (February 1934)
林封面 Lin Fengmian himself pursued with little fanfare in this period a personal and self-expressive hybrid mode of painting in the traditional Chinese media. Composition, published in 1934, is typical of his cubist approach and is the only surviving illustration to suggest the intensity of his palette. But during World War 2.

EDU 639 Week 4 Cultural Immersion and Socio-Historical Research and Presentation Business - General Business
Cultural Immersion and Socio-Historical Research Presentation. Identify a culture you might encounter as a teacher which you have very little knowledge about and would like to further explore (you may select the same cultural group you chose for the Cultural Immersion Activity in Weeks One, Two, and Three). In a 10-15 slide PowerPoint presentation, you will address the following:
a. You will need to design and carry out one experiential activity as part of your report. You may use “A Study of Cambodia and the Cambodian-American Experience” from your text for inspiration, but your research will not need to be nearly as in-depth (unless you decide to continue your research, as the teachers did here, beyond this class). This section of your PowerPoint presentation must include the following information:
§ An explanation of your experiential activity including:
§ What you did
§ Some of the preconceived notions you had going into the activity
§ What you learned
§ Forms of intercultural communication you might need to use with members of this group
§ Some ways you hope to continue learning about this group beyond the course
Examples of cultural immersion activities include, but are not limited to:
a. Visit a Middle-Eastern, Asian, Indian or Mexican Market and prepare a meal using the ingredients you find
b. Watch and critique a Bollywood film, viewing it (as much as is possible) from a non-western perspective
c. Change your news source to a Middle Eastern network like Al Jazeera for a week
d. Visit a cultural center, interfaith dialogue or spend an afternoon with someone of another culture/religion/ethnicity to learn more about that world view
b. Familiarize yourself with and listen to the latest Latino, Hip Hop pop-music from the culture you are studying
c. Attend a Pow Wow or dance performance from members of that cultural group
d. Attend a meeting of the Gay-Straight Alliance
e. Visit the areas where the children you are researching live (provided they are safe)
f. Download a demo of “JAWS,” a screen-reader for the blind, and try surfing the net blindfolded
In addition to the experiential part of this assignment, you are to research the socio-cultural history of the group you are studying. Summarize the history and explain their current reality/challenges in the US. Apply this information to what you learned from your experience. Include ways you can be more sensitive to this background in your curriculum and classroom. You must include at least 2-3 resources to support your ideas. All in-text citations and reference page must be formatted according to APA guidelines.
Along with the PowerPoint presentation, you must submit a Word document title page within the drop box in the online course.

EDU 639 Week 6 Final Paper Business - General Busines
The Final Paper will require you to describe your community demographics and predict the type of diversity you might expect to find in your classroom. You will then identify at least three (3) cases which represent some of the different groups found in your community. If you truly live in a mono-cultural area then, simply choose three (3) backgrounds you would like to better understand. You can use real examples of individuals you know, examples from the textbook or class links, or by scouring the internet. The purpose of identifying real students is to help you keep in mind the individualized identities of students from these groups and avoid reducing groups to stereotypes. Most likely, you will need to imagine those examples at an age appropriate to the students you teach or plan to teach.
Next, research and identify the community resources and social services available to you. What institutional barriers do you anticipate you might need to contend with in order to provide the best possible learning opportunity for the students in your community? Create a plan of action which will help you cope with these potential barriers and ensure that families and communities feel that you care about their success.
Research and identify forms of intercultural communication you will likely need to become proficient in and sensitive to in order to help your students feel valued. Then, design techniques and strategies which will enable you to apply these human relationships skills in the educational setting and in your interactions with families from diverse communities. What do you anticipate will determine the success or failure of your school system in their effort to address students from these groups?

The Socio-Historical Context of Multicultural Education. Describe the socio-historical and contemporary contexts for multicultural and bilingual education in your school district. How have decisions such as Brown vs. the Board of Education, the 2007 ruling by the Supreme Court against voluntary de-segregation or the policies of No Child Left Behind /Race to the Top impacted the way multicultural education has evolved and been interpreted in your district. Who is “silenced” or forgotten in your school curriculum as a result of these decisions or policies?
Bias and Social Psychology. Social scientists believe that everyone possesses conscious and unconscious, preferences for some social groups over others. Consider your own background and experience with race, gender, class, ethnicity, sexual orientation. What groups do you gravitate towards in society and how can you create more opportunities for exposure to individuals from backgrounds quite different from your own? Considering the cultural immersion exercise due in Week Four, how do you think you might be able create opportunities for broadening your world view while taking this class?
Diary Entry of a Diverse Student. Consider the demographic of your local school and identify one student from a background that would be most different from your own. Imagine the first day of school from this student’s perspective as you are introduced to the class as his or her new teacher. This is a creative writing piece where you are expected to step outside your own world view and into the shoes of the “other” in your classroom. You may need to research a bit about the culture of the student whose perspective you will be writing from and ask friends or colleagues to help you better understand your typical body language and how that does or might translate to the classroom and teaching style. Use the following guiding questions to help guide you in writing this 1-2 page paper:
a. What do you think the student’s first impressions of you might be? (Be honest and consider how the verbal and non-verbal cues you might give out would be interpreted by this student).
b. How might the student relate to your background? (i.e. Do you appear to represent the dominant group in society and would your relationship with the dominant group impact your relationship with the student?)
c. How do you address and interact with the student and what are some of the ways you strive to engage all students in the classroom?
Gender and Gender-Fluidity. View the short documentary entitled, I’m Just Anneke. How does gender color one’s perspective on the world and relation to society? How are gender and gender-stereotypes perpetuated by schools? What do you think about gender-fluidity and how do you imagine Anneke would fair in your local school? Do you agree with the way Anneke’s endocrinologist and parents are allowing Anneke to experiment with her gender-fluidity?
Race: Illusion vs. Reality. Explore the interactive tutorial “Sorting People: Can You Tell Somebody’s Race by Looking at Them?”. What surprised you about activity? If race is an illusion, why is it so dangerous to be "color-blind" as an educator? How can we work to combat institutional racism in our schools and society?
Gendered Experiences of Racism. Choose one of the following topics and respond in a one-to-two page paper:
a. Watch the documentary A Girl Like Me, then provide a one-to-two page commentary on the intersection of race and gender by addressing the following:
§ How is racism translated to concept of beauty and self-image for young, African American women?
§ What unique challenges do African American females have compared to those who are white?
§ What about as compared to African American males?
§ How might this be different again for young, Latinas and female immigrants from Africa?
b. Watch the documentary I am Sean Bell, then provide a one-to-two page commentary on the intersection of race and gender by addressing the following:
§ What are the unique challenges of being African American and male in the US?
§ How is this different from that of females?
§ What about as compared to young, African American males?
§ How might this be different to or similar to young, Latino males and immigrants from Africa?
You must include at least two resources to support your ideas. Your paper must include title and reference pages, and must be formatted according to APA guidelines. Length requirement is exclusive of title and reference pages. For more information on APA formatting, visit the Ashford Writing Center.
Segregation. What different forms can segregation take in US schools? When can these methods affirm diversity and when are they detrimental to learning? Consider economic segregation, culturally-based schools (i.e. African American, Latino, or Native American), gender-specific, or charter schools. Provide examples from your own experience and at least one reference in addition to the course textbook
Additive vs. Subtractive Bilingualism. View the video entitled, Immersion. How accurate (or over-dramatized) is Moises’s story? What might his teacher and principal have done differently in order to capitalize on the strengths of what Moises does know in order to help him “add” English to his knowledge base and succeed in US schools? What is working in terms of ELL education in your school? What is not, and why? Would you consider your school’s approach to be additive or subtractive?
Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings in a thoughtful and substantive manner.

The “Culture of Poverty”. Theorists warn against the continued use of deficit theories to connect low social-economic standing to failure in school. They have left a lasting mark on schools. Identify a student from a low socio-economic status, either from experience or from the course text, who is not succeeding. How much of that failure is due to forces beyond his or her control and a mismatch between what is being learned at home and what is valued in the classroom? What other contributing factors could be present? How can we effectively teach children despite these contributing factors?

Final Paper Assessment Plans
Demonstrate your understanding of the concepts covered in this course by developing a plan to assess learner performance. This plan should be constructed in your portfolio blog, and should include the following elements:
Purpose and Learning Outcome: Describe the purpose of your assessment plan. Then, write a learning outcome that supports the purpose you have described.
Tip: This purpose must involve the learning of some knowledge or skill.
Tip: Refer back to Chapter 6 of your textbook for information on learning outcomes.
Assessment Context: Identify a task or a situation in which the learners will be able to demonstrate the knowledge or skills they have gained.
oHolistic Rubric: Create a fully developed holistic rubric for one of the two assessments you designed.
Tip: You can use Bloom’s Taxonomy (available in the online course) to adjust the level of cognitive rigor in the assignment. For example, asking learners to “describe” a concept is easier than asking them to “apply” it.
oTesting Constraints: Identify the constraints you will impose on the assessment.
Then, write a 3- to 5-page paper (excluding title and reference pages) that explains and supports your assessment plan. Justify your selection of assessment context, evaluate your holistic rubric, and explain why you selected the testing constraints you did. Remember that the ultimate goal of assessment and assessment plans is to promote learning. Your paper should include a link to your portfolio blog, and should be formatted to APA standards.

Final Paper Assessment Plans
Demonstrate your understanding of the concepts covered in this course by developing a plan to assess learner performance. This plan should be constructed in your portfolio blog, and should include the following elements:
oPurpose and Learning Outcome: Describe the purpose of your assessment plan. Then, write a learning outcome that supports the purpose you have described.
§ Tip: This purpose must involve the learning of some knowledge or skill.
§ Tip: Refer back to Chapter 6 of your textbook for information on learning outcomes.
oAssessment Context: Identify a task or a situation in which the learners will be able to demonstrate the knowledge or skills they have gained.
oHolistic Rubric: Create a fully developed holistic rubric for one of the two assessments you designed.
§ Tip: You can use Bloom’s Taxonomy (available in the online course) to adjust the level of cognitive rigor in the assignment. For example, asking learners to “describe” a concept is easier than asking them to “apply” it.
oTesting Constraints: Identify the constraints you will impose on the assessment.
Then, write a 3- to 5-page paper (excluding title and reference pages) that explains and supports your assessment plan. Justify your selection of assessment context, evaluate your holistic rubric, and explain why you selected the testing constraints you did. Remember that the ultimate goal of assessment and assessment plans is to promote learning. Your paper should include a link to your portfolio blog, and should be formatted to APA standards.
