Applying life quality factors
Moorcroft Primary School promotes stimulation (psychological life quality factor) in many different ways, both in and outside the lessons. Without stimulation in a school environment pupils may feel bored. This school promotes stimulation by providing and assisting with different extra-curricular activities. There are a wide range of extra-curricular activities for the children to join for example the after-schools club. This is when the children play a different activity each week and have a variety of toys to play with, as well as there are construction blocks and a cooking/baking session each week. If the child does not want to participate in theses activities there are quieter alternatives.
An example of how Moorcroft promotes stimulation in lessons is how the teachers include different events and activities in maths lessons. One of the most popular activities the children play in maths is “catch me if you can”. This is where all the children have a number up to 25 on their back. One child starts with the teacher and gets given a sum they then have to run around after everyone until the can catch the other child with the answer on their back, this child then has to come to the teacher and gets a different sum. The game is over after everyone has been “catcher”. Depending on the ability of the group this can be made more challenging by timing each child how long it takes them to catch the answer.
In lessons work is set to different levels of difficulty for each child to increase that child’s arousal to a comfortable level, making school work more interesting and personally challenging. Teachers often do this by including activities and games in lessons. Occupation
Occupation means having something interesting or worthwhile to do. In Moorcroft Primary School we promote this by providing many different sports…...

...nearby call centres. Other important future issues that Mumbai is facing are infrastructure and education. While most Indian cities have infrastructure problems, many people felt that not enough is being done to systematically address them in Mumbai. New developments are being carried out in a haphazard manner, for example the skywalks — many of which are barely being utilised. Where education is concerned, only 38% of people thought that the quality had improved. Over 50% thought it had decreased, and high admission prices were identified as a particular issue. “Donations” are often required to be given to schools for children to secure a place. But, surely Mumbai must have plenty in its favour for so many people to keep living there. The most frequently cited factors why people are proud of Mumbai were Bollywood, entrepreneurship, and cosmopolitanism. I’d certainly agree with that. Mumbai is also considered to be a relatively safe city for women. Taking into account all aspects of life in Mumbai, 43% of people rated the quality of life as good and 17% thought it was excellent. Only 2% found it to be poor. And given an option, 66% of people said they’d want to stay in Mumbai. Only 4% wanted to relocate to a different city. The remainder weren’t sure. I’m one of those who are happy to stay!...

Prayer in the School Setting

... 1 Prayer and the School Setting PHI 200 Instructor Lisa Linkin May 11, 2012 Prayer and the School Setting Many students throughout the world carry on their daily tasks of going to school. They come home or to their dorms from the excessive day of learning and they may say a prayer or they may not. For the ones that do say a prayer, they may feel as if the prayer would have been better said during school at the time of a “stressful situation or test”. This was not the case because prayer is being banned from school. This topic has been a very hot one from the time of the first person speaking out against having prayer in the school setting even until now showing no signs of letting up. Why is it so bothersome? It stands to reason that the reason prayer in the school setting is such a rampant subject is because those on both sides of the situation have very strong and valid arguments. Every time there seems to be a sound solution, there is something else that challenges the peace the solution seemingly creates. When it comes to the issue of prayer being appropriate for the school setting there are those that say that it is not appropriate, those that agree that it is, and those willing to look for solutions to pacify both sides. To even come close to beginning to identify whether prayer is appropriate for school or not one must understand exactly what both these terms mean in a general sense. School is defined as “place of......

Quality of Life

...The perceptions that I have about a patient’s quality of life and their care has changed dramatically over the past few years. I have had the opportunity to be a home health and hospice nurse and care for patients and families. Through this experience I have gained a new understanding of how to care for homebound and dying patients. I used to not see what a patient’s home life was like. I would stabilize patients or get them to an acceptable level of health and send them home. I knew that some of them would die soon but never really understood what went on in the home. When I first got the home health and hospice job I felt that the patients needed the care of the nurse and that the family was there for support and to help the nurse. After doing hospice for a while I soon realized that I was not just treating the patient but their family as well. The patient’s quality of life was my main concern but health promotion among the family members was in my mind as well. I saw that if the family was well taken care of and were not burnt out on caring for the patient then everyone had a much better quality of life. By providing resources for the families I was better able to keep them in good health and therefore have them provide better and more loving care for their dying family member. The first thing that I would try to implement with the Thomas family is to get Mrs. Thomas’ pain under control. Pain is very debilitating and it is hard for loved ones to see each other......

Paul Willis – Counter/anti school subculture * Interviewed 12 disruptive boys in a school in the North of England, and then followed their progress in the workplace. * Boys wanted to go into manual work ‘proper jobs for real men’ and saw education as ‘sissy’ and irrelevant to their future * Found that being ‘one of the lads’ was an important part of their identity * This counter school culture was carried through into the workplace Evaluation of Willi’s study However it is questionable how far Willis’ findings would apply in modern Britain because there are far fewer unskilled and manual jobs available and less chance of finding employment without qualifications. His sample size is not representative therefore generalisations cannot be made. 2.

Psychological Life Quality Factors

...Stimulation: Stimulation means the presence of stimuli that increase a person's arousal to a comfortable level, making life interesting and challenging for them, without stimuli life may be very boring. Stimulation in the residential home is provided on a day to day basis as the clients are always busy; this could be when they go to volunteer in charity shops such as the British Heart Foundation , when they go to work or when they get themselves involved in activities that have been organised by residential officers in the building eg: arts and crafts and sports activities. The adults living in the building will have a sense of independence as they’re not staying inside of their flat and also taking responsibility for themselves. The care setting makes sure that the client has a full and busy life. Effective communication: Effective communication is influencing those around them and speaking encouraging words.

If a client doesn’t understand what they’re being told then they will be told again or told in a......

...Section B: Caring in a primary school In this section I will be describing how the life quality factors and caring skills will be provided for the children in year 3/4 by the different job roles found in the primary school. I will also be looking at the possible ways the children in year 3/4 may be treated badly by the different job roles found in the primary school and the potential barriers that may prevent the children from being treated well. Psychological Security: means the absence of fear or anxiety, but it does not mean being bullied or feeling threatened. The lack of psychological security can be caused by having a serious illness. They may be afraid of the possible effects of treatment or that they are unable to get any better. Psychological security is needed in a primary school for the children, to feel safe in their environment and less anxious and also be reassured that they are in a safe place and enjoy going to school. The staff provide psychological security by: Teacher: They care for the students and support the children in lessons and to make sure the children are safe and that the classroom is safe for the children’s learning environment. They help the children with work or concerns they may have. Teaching assistant: If they take children out of class they work with the student and make sure that the environment that the children are working in (out of class) is......

Factors Affecting Quality of Life

...Factors affecting quality of life Factors that affect a person’s quality of life may be physical or emotional. While these factors are important for everyone, it is especially important that care workers ensure that certain factors are present for individuals in their care. These include: • Physical factors: exercise, diet, physical comfort, safety, hygiene, pain relief • Intellectual factors: stimulation, engaging in activities • Emotional factors: privacy, dignity, approval, psychological security, autonomy • Social factors: social contact, social support. Physical life quality factors These include: • Exercise • Diet • Physical comfort • Safety • Hygiene • Pain relief Physical comfort By physical comfort we mean the provision of a suitable environment which meets an individual’s needs, i.e not too hot, not too cold, comfortable beds/chairs, the right amount of stimulation, not too noisy. Ensuring physical comfort may also mean: • providing the care required to maintain comfort, such as allowing peace to sleep • having the correct height furniture • changing a baby’s nappy regularly to prevent nappy rash and so the baby is not uncomfortable • moving a bedridden individual regularly to prevent soreness. Diet All people need food to survive. The amount and types of food they eat can affect their quality of life, particularly if they......

Life Factors

...Life Factors (PIES) Life Factors (PIES) Cystic fibrosis Physical Effects A hereditary disorder affecting the exocrine glands. It causes the production of abnormally thick mucus, leading to the blockage of the intestines, and bronchi and often resulting in respiratory infection. Cystic fibrosis affects the pancreas because a buildup of thick, sticky mucus blocks the ducts reducing the amount of insulin produced and stopping digestive enzymes from reaching the intestines for digestion. This can cause malnutrition, leading to poor growth, physical weakness and delayed puberty. Symptoms usually start in early childhood and include: •persistent cough •recurring chest and lung infections •poor weight gain. An early sign is that an affected child’s sweat is unusually salty, which can be noticeable when you kiss your child. One in every ten babies born with cystic fibrosis develops a bowel obstruction called meconium ileus at birth or within the first few days of life. In these cases the meconium is so thick that it blocks the bowel instead of passing through. Babies with meconium ileus often need an urgent operation to relieve and bypass the blockage. Individuals with cystic fibrosis are prone to developing bone disease (thin, brittle bones) due to a lack of nutrition (which is lost through stools because of the damaged pancreas), and other complaints related to the disease. Adults with cystic fibrosis also have an increased risk of bone disease, which is a side......

A number of schools have been established catering to the youngest generation, such as the Unity School, Khartoum Grammar School and recently Khartoum International Community School. Yet there has been a consistent flow of complaints against these establishments ranging from the ridiculously high fees of some to the low quality of overall education services. Therefore establishing a primary school is a major step forward for the Local Council in taking into account the needs of families with young children and would help stem the flow of these families with young children away from our community abroad. According to projected figures and the experience of other schools, a primary school could be operated profitably after the initial startup period. It would provide a local option for the early childhood education for Khartoum’s growing community of small......

Supporting Learning in Primary Schools

...Reflecting on the course My role as a teaching assistant has not developed or changed in ways I would like. However, this course has taught me that teaching assistants are a key element in the provision of high-quality education. Study Topic 2, p.17 (Balshaw and Farrell 2002) suggest that, ‘Teaching assistants have often been in several jobs and learnt a variety of skills’. I support Year 1 children in both numeracy and literacy. In the morning I discuss the lesson plan with the teacher and get a clear understanding of the learning objectives. If I feel the children might find something difficult, the teacher will suggest ways I can give extra support. I get the resources ready and prepare the classroom as necessary. As suggested by Clark (2002) in Study Topic 12, p.7, ‘The physical learning environments that a school provides impact on the teaching and learning that takes place inside.’ I am more aware of how the learning environment can help and benefit the children’s learning, and make it as stimulating as possible. After reading Cremin et al, (p.133) I found it interesting to know that our classroom uses the zoning method. This method allows the teacher and me to work well as a team and select the right children to work together in a positive, constructive way. This course has also helped me realise the importance of observations and assessments, as Wragg (1999) suggests in Study Topic 9, p.23, ‘Classroom observation that is skilfully handled can benefit both......

ABSTRACT The organization of work has been addressed through numerous perspectives by a diverse set of disciplines. While job stress research has focused on the promotion of worker well-being, contemporary business-improvement initiatives (e.g., lean manufacturing, six sigma) have sought to optimize effectiveness through work processes. However, these two aims, although traditionally viewed as contradictory, are actually interdependent variables in the determination of long-term profitability. The concept of organizational health blends the pursuit of individual wellness with organizational effectiveness to yield a strategy for economic resilience. This......
