Lots were apparently drawn, but it was arranged that in each case the volunteer would be the teacher. Teacher and learner were then taken to a room where the learner was strapped into a chair and electrodes fixed to his wrists. The volunteer/teacher was told that the punishment to be applied was electric shock, and that these shocks could be extremely painful, although they would cause no permanent damage. Next the volunteer/teacher was taken to his own room where he was given his instructions; every time the learner made a mistake, he was to give an increasingly high electric shock by way of punishment. The intensity of these shocks - as displayed on a 'shock generator' - ranged from 15V to 450V.
D. A choice for the number of frames per second 6.) A student records a video of a professor teaching a class. The student plans to later post the video online on a website. Which of the following answers lists something discussed in this chapter that the student could do to improve the chances that other students will watch the video? D. Compress the video.
Next, using the equations the total distance the ball would travel was found. After that, the students called over Mr. Neenan so that he could observe the firing of the projectile launcher. The projectile launcher was at the end of the table and the calculated distance was marked off on the floor by a target. The projectile launcher was then set up perfectly horizontal and fired. Part Two: This part of the lab was to hit Mr. Bill with the projectile as he was sitting on the floor.

* Stirring * Temperature * Time * Amount/Type of solute * Amount/Type of solventAsk ch to put hands up and to call out ideas of factors which may influence dissolving and write them on the board. Tell ch that today we are going to focus on TEMPERATURE.Teacher will guide Ch to discuss in talk partners WHY and HOW they think TEMPERATURE may affect sugar from dissolving and then to feed ideas back to teacher and rest of ch.Ch to make predictions about what will happen to the sugars rate of dissolving in each temperature | The teacher will introduce the lesson by discussing with the ch about what they already know about dissolving. * What do the children already know * Any misconceptions * Any new ideas to be discussed * Teacher to make sure that temperature is discussed to obtain any misconceptions about temperature. The teacher will provide ch with post it notes to write down factors which they think may affect dissolving of sugar – make sure temperature is included. Teacher to write these ideas on the board.
Heid 1 Jennifer Heid Professor Harris English 1000 29, February, 2014 Final Draft Do you think there could be another event like the holocaust due to the amount of Obedience to an Authority figure? In Philip Meyers article, “If Hitler Asked You to Electrocute a Stranger, Would You?” A social psychologist named Stanly Milgram, working at Yale at the time, put his theory on obedience to the test. Milgram uses cause and effect to find his theory. Milgram uses actors to act a scene where the “ learner’ gets electrocuted by the “teacher” to show obedience to the authority figure. In addition, in Milgram’s theory of obedience, he uses “teachers,” which are the “subject” to authority.
Brenton Brister Prof. Choi 9/29/08 Sociology A Class Divided – Topic 2 During the course of the film, “A Class Divided” a gradually learned response to the people on the bottom of the experimental hierarchy was developed by the ones on the top. The teacher demonstrated the numerous ways that people might act on racial prejudices and the various reasons for their beliefs. In the classes of third-graders, it is relatively simple to see and understand how certain rifts can and do form between groups of the children. Due to the fact that the children are currently at a developmental level of their personality, the ability to obtain a learned response to racial prejudice is easy to understand. Whether it is a response that is one of the superiority side, or the reaction that is born of being the ones under oppression, the lesson enforces the idea that enables the brown-eyed and blue-eyed people to in turn learn the ways that racism is acted upon.
Part 1 Summarising and interpreting the information in the table drawn on research by Stanley Milgram. ( pg 11 of DSE 141 Assignment booklet) The table shows the predictions by college students and three experimental results one made by the original study and two variations of the experiment. Where the participant learned with co – ‘teachers’ who defy the authority figure (variation 1) and where the participant teamed with co – ‘teachers’ who obey the authority figure (variation 2). ‘Each participant went through identical experimental procedure at which the teacher stopped shocking the learner . The experiment shows that on average level of shock at which teachers refused to continue in volts (variation 2) scored the highest (380), variation 1 scored 240 and 368 by the original study the difference is relatively small with variation 2 being quite high with the predictions made of 140 by the students.
Selective Attention is the capacity to maintain a behavioral or cognitive set in the face of distracting or competing stimuli. Meaning that you block a distracting friend that speaks to you during class, because you are supposed to pay attention to the teacher. There are two types of selective attention, visual selective attention; an example of this is John Stroop, who proposed the Stroop effect in 1935, the experiment tried to analyze the reaction time of a task if interference was present. First he gave a patient a card with the words mentioning colors, and the color painted were those mentioned, people would do this fairly fast and take about 9 to 15 seconds. In the second cards he showed the patients words mentioning colors, but written in a different color, here they had to mention the color in which the word is written, this card was were the interference was present and since reading is an automatic process, people
In his essay “The Difference Between High School and College,” Jack Meiland, a distinguished professor of philosophy, explains, “In high school, one learns physics and chemistry, trigonometry, American and world history – all subjects in which the ‘facts’ to be learned are harder, but the method is much the same as elementary and junior high school” (104). The method of learning before college is one of memorization and regurgitation. A teacher tells you a fact, you write it in your notebook, memorize what you have written, and then regurgitate it for a test in order to show that you have acquired knowledge. Although you may know facts, you may not know how or why
