Any topic (writer’s choice)

Select and watch a movie that depicts difficult or different methods of communication between individuals with a disability or with other special needs.  An example of this would be the 2003 movie Radio with Cuba Gooding Jr. There are many ways to view this movie on Netflix, HBO, Amazon, etc.

First, provide a short summary of the movie, and include the background on the main characters. As discussed in the previous module, utilize person-first language to describe individuals from specialized populations (example: “child with autism,” rather than “autistic child”).

Discuss the communication difficulties or barriers between the individuals in the movie. What misunderstandings or obstacles did you observe that prevented clear communication between the characters?

Lastly, apply this information directly to healthcare. Why does communication often breakdown between healthcare providers, and patients with special needs? What circumstances from the movie could also be applied to healthcare provider and patients?

Some other movie suggestions are:

Rainman: When car dealer Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise) learns that his estranged father has died, he returns home to Cincinnati, where he discovers that he has an older brother with autism named Raymond (Dustin Hoffman)  The brothers’ cross-country trip ends up changing both their lives.    The Intouchables:  After he becomes a quadriplegic from a paragliding accident, an aristocrat hires a young man from the projects to be his caregiver.
As Good as It Gets:  A single mother/waitress, a author with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and a gay artist form an unlikely friendship after the artist is assaulted in a robbery.    I Am Sam:  A man with a developmental disability fights for custody of his 7-year-old daughter, and in the process teaches his cold hearted lawyer the value of love and family.
Your assignment should be around 500 words, and you can submit it as a Microsoft Word document (file upload) or type directly into the assignment (text entry). 


 Write a mock email to the executives in your company, bringing up a reallife, major issue facing your company or industry today. In the email, describe what the issue is, what scenario planning is, and how it could help your company or industry prepare to deal with the issue.

Label both parts

Part 1

Answer question :
Consider what you’ve learned about research ethics. How did the 3 Identical Strangers research violate research ethics? Was it worth the risk/impact? Why or why not? What could the researchers done instead? Your response should include a minimum of FIVE sentences.

Part 2

You must comment respectfully on at least one other post to receive full credit.

Student Comment:
After viewing “3 Identical Strangers”, the first thing that came to mind was how ethically wrong these researchers were. These researchers violated research ethics by separating sets of twins/triplets and using them as science experiments without their knowledge nor consent. I believe that this experiment was not worth the risk/impact, because these men were faced with multiple mental health issues that could have been avoided or less likely to happen if they grew up together. I think that the researchers could have just not followed through with their research as the results of their experiments were never published. These researchers ruined the lives of many and did not have any second thought about it.

Day of Compassion


To complete this assignment, choose a day that will be your “Day of Compassion” and try your absolute best to live each minute of that day as compassionately as possible. In other words, for a full 24-hour period you should do your best to reduce suffering of others, help those in need, be considerate and respectful, and avoid causing harm to any living being.

When carrying out this assignment, leave no behavior unexamined from watching TV to eating lunch to decisions about giving time or money to others (for example, have you ever considered visiting the cats at the animal shelter or taking a shelter dog for a walk?). That is, don’t limit yourself to simply holding the door open for a stranger or petting a lonely dog; think about all the unnecessary suffering in the world, and strive for the greatest impact and deepest level of compassion without being phony or insincere. It is up to you to define what compassion is and to decide how best to realize it.

If you are already quite compassionate, try being compassionate toward groups you don’t often focus on, and even if your actions don’t differ much from how you normally behave, carefully observe and analyze what transpires during the day. If outside events make it difficult for you to participate on the designated day, or if you feel dissatisfied with your performance of the assignment, feel free to repeat the exercise on a later day.

Note: To minimize any bias in social reactions, it is best if you do not tell others about the class assignment until after the Day of Compassion is over.

Part II: Write About Your Experience

Submit a social psychological analysis of what the day was like using at least 4 class topics, concepts or theories and references to class material. Here are a few sample questions you might address:

  • How did you define compassion, and who were the recipients of your efforts?
  • If your behavior was different than normal, which person did you like more: the “Day of Compassion you” or the “normal you”? If you preferred the “Day of Compassion you,” what are the factors that prevent this “you” from coming out?
  • What are the social and psychological costs and benefits of behaving compassionately? In your refer, do the benefits outweigh the costs?
  • How did others respond to your compassion? Do you think they noticed a difference in your behavior? What attributions did people make for your behavior, and why?
  • How can social psychology be used to foster compassion? Which topics/concepts/ theories covered in class so far best relate to this exercise?
  • If you were to predict your behavior one month from now, do you think it will be changed in any way as a result of participating in the Day of Compassion? If so, how? If not, why not?

Fire Science

Unit 2 Assignment: Impacts on Modern Fire Research

The fire service is no different than any other profession in that the use of technology is improving and helping us to do our jobs in a safer more efficient manner. These advances in technology are being driven from both military applications such as thermal imaging and GPS and private research such as compressed air foam. This week you are going to look closely at the various technologies and how they are being woven into our daily operations in fire protection services.

Write a 7501,050-word informative essay explaining how motivating factors of modern fire research impact fire science.

In your essay:

Identify four motivating factors of modern fire science research.
Define how modern fire research has impacted fire science as it relates to each of the following:
Infrared imaging
Water mist
Compressed air foam
Explain how each of the above has had an impact on fire science.

Discussion 3-Initial Post

Watch The Lion King (either the 1994 or 2019 version is fine).

After you have watched the movie, answer the following questions in a Word Document:

Simba had to address widespread problems after Scar’s ruinous reign. Had he assumed the throne immediately after his father’s death, he would have had less to do. Would you prefer to succeed a destructive and despised leader (e.g., Scar) or a productive and admired leader (e.g., Mufasa)? Why? What does your response tell you about your leadership style?

Recall a situation in which you tried to escape from a stressful problem. How effective was escape as a means of coping? To what extend did the problem dissipate or resolve itself while you ignored it? To what extent did the problem worsen? If you eventually returned to confront the problem, to what extent could you cope better after gaining some distance? What are the advantages and disadvantages of escape as a coping mechanism? How likely are you to escape in the future? Why? What does your response tell you about your leadership style?

Riddled with guilt, shame, and self-doubt, Simba initially abdicated his leadership responsibilities. He decided to fight for his kingdom only after his encounter with Rafiki. Recall a situation in which you initially feared living up to your potential. What and/or who eventually persuaded you to face the challenge? How?

Kirkpatrick and Locke (1991) argued that traits are necessary, yet not sufficient, precursors to effective leadership behaviors. Recall a successful leader of an organization or group with which you are familiar. Which behaviors does/did this person display that contribute(d) to his/her effectiveness? Which traits would you use to describe this person? To what extent do you believe you have the requisite traits to lead effectively? If you lack these traits, how do you plan to cultivate or compensate for them?
