Using Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Theory (sometimes referred to as the bioecological theory) identify the major features of this theory (the 5 systems in particular) and critically apply them to your own life, evaluating how well they explain your development. I am 48, female, married and a mother of two girls. I am educated, a scientist, a liberal socialist and involved in my community. I am an environmentalist and a teacher. I love to read, play silly board games with my family, walk my dog on the beach, spend hours in my garden and cook.
Around the house, plant life was abundant. There were flowers, bushes, and grape vines all around the house, an orchard that one could walk to, and the Allegheny River was close by. Rachel’s mother taught her basic lessons like art, music, and literature. Rachel’s mother kindled her love of nature and writing. In most of her free time, Rachel read and explored nature.
Having fled so far from Vietnam, I can no longer imagine what to say, or how I should address my prayers, or for that matter what promises I could possibly make to the long departed. My mother, on the other hand, lives in America the way she would in Vietnam. Every morning in my parents’ suburban home north of San Jose, with a pool shimmering in the backyard, my mother climbs a chair and piously lights a few joss sticks for the ancestral altar which sits on top of the living room's bookcase. Every morning she talks to ghosts. She mumbles solemn prayers to the spirits of our dead ancestors, and to the all-compassionate Buddha.
Finally, she is able to ignore things like pain or injury she first shows this on the night of the accident, when she is able to hold on to the burning hot iron wire to save her life even though it burn through her hands leaving scars across her hands. She shows this trait again when her house catches on fire and her daughter is trapped in her bedroom on the top floor. Ignoring her scared hands, Anna strips down to her bra a climbs up to her daughter’s window and rescues
There would be too much metafishes in the population because the flyhip isn’t there to eat them anymore. Then there wouldn’t be enough resources in the water because the metafishes already used up most of the resources in the water. Mutualism relationship: * Flapenguin and horsefly * The flapenguin helps the horsefly by letting it use it’s body for shelter and the horsefly keeps bugs off of it * This relationship affects the ecosystem by reducing diseases in the flapenguin and giving the horsefly a shelter. The horsefly reduces the diseases in the flapenguin by keeping other bugs off it. The horsefly does that by swinging its tail to prevent the bugs from coming closer.
The experience opened my eyes to the fact that shelter animals especially, need love and care. The dogs do appreciate our company and help, and it was truly heartwarming to be able to give the dogs in the shelter the care and attention they need. Overall, volunteering made me feel compassionate and motivated to make a difference for animals. I have been working at the Peninsula Humane Society since July of 2013, and plan to continue for the future. In volunteering with the dog department I gave care by spending time by petting, playing with them in their doggie “condos” (space).
The poet makes sure the reader is well informed that the road leading towards the elderly women’s home is surrounded by nature and wildlife life. In the poem it states ‘The nightjars house: you can hear it spin.’ This quote gives us the impression that it is almost completely silent as the person was able to hear a bird call. To display just how peaceful and quiet the scene portrayed is, the poem also states, ‘only the lesser Voices sound, blue-fly and gnat and the streams whisper.’ This depicts that even the quietest animals of nature could be
Katniss Everdeen shows survival by keeping her family alive in Seam, and keeping herself alive in the actual Games as well. As a young girl, Katniss’ father was killed in a brutal mine explosion. From then on, Katniss had to take on the role as her family’s caretaker by providing food and any other living essential they may need. When he was still alive, Mr. Everdeen taught his daughter, Katniss, to hunt with a bow and arrow and to gather. He taught what plants were good to eat and warned her of the ones that were poisonous.
HUNTING IS JUST A HOBBY A hobby is most often defined as something you do often at your leisure, for pleasure. Hunting is my hobby, and is great. I think more people should think of hunting as a hobby because they get too caught up in it to enjoy it. When people think of a hobby they tend to think of a guy building model planes, painting pictures of nature, or thing like that; which is not the best stereotype. What I am trying to say is do not let the people make you feel like hunting has to be something more than a leisure activity.
