With this aim, we will try to point out the relevant contextual aspects, the characters’ main features and the outcome of their interaction, hopefully revealing the story’s verisimilitude and its undeniable potential to be read, and seriously taken as a lesson of life. We will focus on the false teaching ideal embodied by the protagonist, and in the dangers inherent in a profession affording privileged relationships that can, either intentionally or unintentionally, harm students’ moral, social and psychological development. This idea is clearly expressed and summarised in the quotation below: […] The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie [is] a novel that reveals the dangers of a powerful personality seeking to dominate the lives of young impressionable girls.

INTRODUCTION The purpose of this essay is to discuss in detail a popular content and process theory namely Maslow's hierarchy theory and the process theory of Porter Lawlor Expectancy Theory and to explain the contrast of the two and how these theories might help to motivate people in a workplace.

The comparison between the advantages and disadvantages of the quantitative and qualitative research methods | | Candidate Number: 626309 | Introduction: Quantitative and qualitative approaches are the two mainly used research methods in the social sciences. To compare and contrast these two methods and understand their differences and relations as well as the advantages and disadvantages, tends to have a significant meaning to further develop the skill in terms of understanding theories behind the data and transfer the data into useful information to direct our behaviours. There is a group of people argue that the reason caused the theory hard to be used in the real situation is the lack of preciseness as well as scientificity. In other words, the theory is too abstract to be followed in the reality. However, by contrast, some people believe that the most effective way to understanding nature of this world is not through scientific approaches but epistemology and philosophy (Yang 2005).
