Objective: this activity will allow you to explore current leadership research resources available online. A consideration of this research will help you to deepen your understanding of the role of the principal and develop a picture of your own leadership style and philosophy. * Expected Time to Complete the Task: 6 hours

* Due Date: First Posting – Dec 25
* Second Posting – Dec 27
1. Read through the seven articles listed below. If you choose you can also select one from your own professional list. Remember, if you select your own, please submitt that article as an attachment along with your response 2. Once you have read the articles, select any two articles from the list below to summarize 3. Once three candidates have already summarized an article, please choose a different article to summarize 4. Summarize the contents of the two (2) articles in a Word document, and include: a) comments on the summarized information and b) implications for your role as a current and/or future school based administrator (principal/vice-principal). Both can be done in point form 5. Copy and paste your summaries and comments in the discussion board for assignment #2. 6. Read over the selection of the summaries provided by your colleagues to ensure you have an overview of current research related to leadership in education. In a reflective paragraph based on your colleagues’ summaries and responses, what additional thoughts do you have? Post the paragraph as the second posting. This assignment will assist with in-class class discussions. 7. Resources:

Short answers
5. What two things must you normally specify in a variable declaration?
You must specify the variable type and an identifier.
int n; // type - int, identifier - n
6. What value is stored in uninitialized variables?
is a variable that is declared but is not set to a definite known value before it is used.
Algorithm workbench
3. Write assignment statements that perform the following operations with the variables a, b, and c.
a. Adds 2 to a and stores the result in b
b. Multiplies b times 4 and stores the result in a
c. Divides a by 3.14 and stores the result in b
d. Subtracts 8 from b and stores the result in a
Assignment statements that perform operations with the variables a, b, and c* (*Actually none of these operations involves the variable c at all... is this an error, or a 'trick answer'?):
b = a + 2
a = b * 4
b = a / 3.14
a = b – 8
4. Assume the variables result, w, x, y, and z are all integers, and that w = 5, x = 4, y = 8, and z = 2. What value will be stored in result in each of the following statements?
a. Set result = x + y
b. Set result = z * 2
c. Set result = y / x
d. Set result = y – z
result = x++ - y;
Answer -4
result = 4 – 8 = -4
result = ++w + y;
Answer
w = w + 1 = 5 + 1 = 6
result = 6 + 8 = 14
5. Write a pseudocode statement that declares the variable cost so it can hold real numbers.
Declare Real price= 0.00
Display "the original price."

...Reflective Practice
Introduction:
Reflection its self is looking into personal thoughts and actions. For nurses this
would mean looking at how they performed a particular task taking into
consideration their interaction with their colleagues and other members of
staff, patients and in some cases relatives This then enables the
nurse to assess their actions and thought processes. There are various
frameworks of reflection that one could choose and the examples used for this
work is by Gibbs (1988), Johns (2000) and Benner (1982)
Gibbs:
Gibbs reflective cycle encourages one to think in order about the different
areas of an experience. It is presented in a number of questions that the
reflective practitioner needs to answer to enable them to learn from the
experience that they have had. Trainer. 20011.
The Reflective Cycle, Gibbs (1988)
Description
What happened?
Actions Feelings
If it happened again what would you do? What are you thinking and feeling?
Conclusion Evaluation
What else could have been done?...

...Reflective Practice Reid (1994) Gibbs Reflective Cycle
What happened? (description) What would you do if it happened again? (action plan) What were you thinking/feeling? (feeling)
What alternatives did you have? (conclusion) How can you make sense of what happened? (analysis)
What was good/bad about the experience? (evaluation)
Reflectivity
The circular process by which our thoughts affect our actions, which affect the situation we are dealing with and therefore after feedback through the reactions of others involved which can affect how we understand and think about the situation. So we constantly get evidence about how effective or worthwhile our actions are.
What is Reflection?
“Learning from experience” (Spalding, 1998) “Thoughtful deliberation” (Tickle, 1994)
WHAT IS REFLECTION?
“systematic, critical and creative thinking about action with the intention of understanding its roots and processes” (Fish and Twinn,1997)
Has 3 Stages: • The learning opportunity • The information gathering and critical analysis • The changed perspective (Spalding,1998)

For our Week 2 assignment, in Intermediate Algebra, we were asked to solve the problem number 68 on page 539 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra. aside from completing the problem, we were also asked to write a two to three page paper while including the five given vocabulary words for the week. Please see the problem below:
Shipping restrictions. The accompanying graph shows all of the possibilities for the number of refrigerators and the number of TVs that will fit into an 18-wheeler.
a)
Write an inequality to describe this region.
b)
Will the truck hold 71 refrigerators and 118 TVs?
c)
Will the truck hold 51 refrigerators and 176 TVs?
Kindly consider the five given vocabulary words:
Solid line
Dashed line
Parallel
Linear inequality
Test point
In order to solve the problem, we need to be aware that the formula to solve any linear equation is y=mx+b. with the said, we can say that we have our y- intercept which is 330. (The ordered pair 0,330 demonstrates that the y coordinate is 330). Since we have our y- intercept, we will now discover what our slope is. The formula to determine any slope of a line is
m=y1- y2
x1-x2
M= 330-0
0-100
After performing division and simplifying, we have found that the slope of our line is -3.
a) Write an inequality to describe this region.
The inequality to...

Solving Proportions
Proportions exist in the real world. For example, in finding out the price of a unit, or the population of a specific species. The first problem that we are working with states that “. Bear population. To estimate the size of the bear population on the Keweenaw Peninsula, conservationists captured, tagged, and released 50 bears. One year later, a random sample of 100 bears included only 2 tagged bears.What is the conservationist’s estimate of the size of the
bear population?(Dugolpolski, 2012)
In reading over the “Bear Population” #56 on page 437 (Dugolpolski, 2012), the concept of proportions allow the assumption that the ratio of originally tagged bears to the whole population is equal to the ratio of recaptured tagged bears to the size of the sample. The estimated solution, variables will be defined and rules for solving proportions are used.
The ratio of originally tagged bears to the whole population is 50/x.
The ratio of recaptured tagged bears to the sample size is 2/100.
50=2 This is the proportion set up and ready to solve. This is the step where we will cross multiply.
x 100 at this point. The extremes are 100 and 50. The means are x and 2
100(50)=2x
50002=2x2 Divide both sides by 2
X=2500 The bear population of Keweenaw Peninsula is estimated to be around 2500.
For the second problem of this...
