There are three distinct characteristics that allow us to recognize the difference from modernity; changes in capitalism, changes in the consumer society, and the rise of a global society. There are many ways in which society in modernity can be separated from society at present in postmodernity. In modernity reason was based on the foundations upwards, whereas in postmodernity there are multiple factors and multiple levels of reasoning, almost wed-orientated. In modernity science was viewed as the universal optimism, whereas in postmodern times science was seen as a realism of limitations. Lastly, in modernity language was referential; which contrasts with the view in postmodernity that language has a meaning in social contexts through its usage.
Do classical approaches to class remain relevant to contemporary societies? Your answer should refer to the work of Marx and/or Weber. ‘The word class has been used to describe broad and diffuse groupings within a national population that are seen as forming a set of layers or strata in a hierarchy, as in the terms ‘upper’, ‘middle’ and ‘lower’ class’. (Crompton and Scott, 2000, pg.1) Class has been a key subject in sociological debate. Recently however the debate has shifted from the classical questions that Marx and Weber were asking over a century ago- How is class defined?
Graff goes on to further state that because of this every street-smart student has the possibility of being an intellectual. To find this potential intellectualism, Graff proposes that schools should allow and encourage students to write and read about their personal interests in order for them to transition easier from the street-smart thinking to more of an academic thinking. After this transition is started and/or made, Graff further encourages schools and colleges to teach the students to not just read and write, but read and write intellectually. Graff says a student’s writing should be challenged, forcing the student to come up with arguments to defend their opinions. Graff believes this action will further strengthen the intellectualism of our youth.
Today, like much of the nation, it is searching for a new direction for its economy” (Merrick, “For Rockford, This Downturn Won’t Be the First”). As a city with one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation, Rockford must make strides to change its economic mindset and approach as well as moving away from its deep rooted dependence on manufacturing to improve its economy and employment rate. In this paper we will examine Rockford’s economic history, analyze some causes of the escalation in unemployment, and present recommendations of what could be implemented to address the problems. Additionally, we will examine the pros and cons, as well as the feasibility, of the recommendations proposed. 2.

This paper will illustrate the following (1) how I view the course of child development as continuous (2) how my own personal child development theory would be a blend between Piaget’s Cognitive-Developmental theory and Vygotsky’s Sociocultural Theory (3) how I feel environmental and cultural influences play a large role in a child’s development and (4) how I would incorporate my theories into the classroom. There have been many theories that have played a part in early childhood development research. It has been these theories that have changed the way teachers educate their students. Creating an environment that contributes to learning is key to the student’s success. I believe that children develop smoothly and continuously, gradually adding on more of the same types of skills that were there in the beginning.

This is known as the cognitive development theory, as children actively construct knowledge as they manipulate and explore their world. Piaget found that elementary classroom educators must plan and develop curriculum that enhances their students’ stage of growth. For example, McClenden (2011) stated that students in the Preoperational Stage should have curriculum centered on concrete physical situations because they are not yet able to conceptualize abstractly. Likewise, teachers need to expose students to a great deal of hands-on-practice and a wide range of experiences in order to build a foundation for learning and language. Vygotsky’s sociocultural theory of education also transmits to an elementary classroom and teaching strategies.
