... reproduce it with your own behavior. 3. Reproduction. You have to translate the images or descriptions into actual behavior. Our ability to imitate improves with practice at the behaviors involved. In addition, our abilities improve even when we just imagine ourselves performing the behavior. 4. Motivation. Yet with all this, youre still not going to do anything unless you are motivated to imitate or until you have some reason for doing it. Bandura mentions a number of motives: past reinforcement (traditional behaviorism), promised reiforcement (incentives we can imagine), and vicarious reinforcement (seeing and recalling the model being reinforced).

- Antigone Ismene And Haimon - 689 words
Antigone Ismene And Haimon Antigone, the character, is a tragic hero because we care about her. Ismene and Haimon help us care about Antigone by making her feel worthy of loving. And with out this her plan to bury her brother seems irrelevant to the reader because we can care less about her. Ismene, although weak and timid, is in the story to illustrate that Antigone is capable of being loved. "We are only women, We cannot fight with men, Antigone" (Sophocles 881). Another reason Ismene is incorporated to Antigone is to show exactly strong-willed Antigone is. Haimon is there to show that Antigone has a life and a future outside her purpose. What else Haimon brings to the story is he makes Cr ...

Crossing The Line ##John Pike PIKE1 Mr. Garbowitz SC-235 11-27-00 Crossing the Line Mens friendships with men are characterized by doing things ... for womens friendships, talk for the sake of talk is more central than activates (Fritz 2). We have always heard that mens friendships are based on activities and that womens friendships are based on talking, but what happens when these two stereotypes intertwine in a cross-gendered friendship. What happens when a man and a woman are just friends and not lovers? What do they do? Do they do activities that men would prefer or do they sit down and gossip like the women would love to do. We will throw out all the stereotypes about the inter-gender r ...

- Date Rape Drugs - 1,858 words
Date Rape Drugs Health Promotion : Date Rape Drugs The issue of substances used to facilitate date rape is one that deserves a great deal of attention. Over the years, there has been a dramatic increase in reports of drug misuse leading to sexual assault. It is necessary for everyone to be aware of the general threat of substance misuse and what to do if they think that they have been drugged. It is also important that people know how to keep a look out for drinks that have been tampered with so that they can take the appropriate measures to make sure that these drinks are not consumed. For these reasons, I believe that a health promotion program needs to be planned and implemented to addres ...

- Diary Of Dispair - 1,376 words
... all, she was too strung out. I just snatched her up (she was as light as a feather) and brought her to the car. She was like a rag doll in my arms, limp and unresponsive. During the car ride home she began to "sober up" I guess you can say. She said "mom" in a raspy voice I could hardly tell was hers, and I looked over at my child, not knowing what to expect, half-afraid she'd try to jump out of the moving car. But she just grabbed my hand and held it tighter then I ever remembered, and with tears in her eyes, whispered " I'm so sorry, thank you." Thank you. She's upstairs now, sleeping. We had a good talk before she fell asleep. She wants to get better, she agreed to treatment. We're g ...

- I Introduction - 1,792 words
I. Introduction Lori is four year old, and she is at Piagets preoperational stage. According to Piagets description of the preoperational stage children, they cannot understand his conservation tasks. This preoperational stage, "children can use representations (mental images, drawings, words, gestures) rather than just motor actions to think about objects and events. Thinking now is faster, more flexible and efficient, and more socially shared. Thinking is limited by egocentrism, a focus on perceptual states, reliance on appearances rather than underlying realities, and rigidity (lack of reversibility)" (Flavell, miller, 1993). The young children do not have abilities to have "operations me ...

- Scientific Inquiry - 568 words
Scientific Inquiry The Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) Background: The Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) was organized in 1958 by the Education Committee of American Institute of the Biological Sciences to find methods to improve biological education in the United States. A well-known and widely adopted curriculum and many teaching materials for high school biology were developed by Joseph Schwab and his team of the BSCS in the 1960s then.

- Suicide - 1,906 words
Suicide Living to die, or is it dying to live. Suicide, the intentional act of killing oneself. "Britain abolished punishment for attempted suicide in 1961, and by the early 1990's only two US states still listed suicide as a crime (Columbia Encyclopedia)". The Japanese have long held to practice called Hara-Kiri, another form of suicide. Most religions look down on this practice because it goes against their core values. As we examine the reasoning behind suicide, can we make a decision of whether it should be legal or illegal? Is there a place for suicide in our cultures? Statistically there is a rise in suicides, although there are vast ages that can account for these statistics the signi ...
