Historically, in many career and education programs, the focus has been on topics specific to the occupational area. Today’s fast-paced global marketplace is demanding more, and “soft skills” are emerging in importance. In today’s global workforce, soft skills are more directly related to professional success than ever before.
The faculty has identified seven related topics of soft skills, or “core abilities” that are crucial to success both during school and after graduation. Core abilities are skills and competencies that will enable students to be successful in the workforce.

The option to have an abortion is an essential portion to women’s reproductive rights. This right should be protected and made available for every woman that may want to utilize that right upon their own discretion. A women’s right to have an abortion should be upheld and protected beyond westernized society. A woman should be able to access a safe, low risk abortion globally without limitations for any group of women. As global citizens it is our job to make sure each woman’s right to abortion is upheld. In this essay we will take a look at philosophical theories of Judith Thompson “A defense of Abortion”, an advocate of abortion and Don Marquis, “Why Abortion is Immoral” an enthusiast of the immorality of abortion.
The Author Judith Jarvis Thomson article was based on “A defense of Abortion”. Thomas believes that Abortion is impermissibility and all human beings have the right of life. He mentioned that abortion is dissipated because it has to do with killing a fetus, which is the same as killing a person. He failed to discuss the reason why people choose abort but rather emphasizing about the right of life of a mother and a fetus. Thomson mentioned that everyone “have the right to decide what happen in and to your body” (Mackinnon Pg, 211). I do agree with this quote but Thomson still insist that abortion is not the right way to go about killing a fetus but if you have the right to do anything...

EDCO 601: Differentiating Instruction for All Learners
Fall 2013-9th December 2013
McTighe, J., & Brown, L. J. (2005). Differentiated Instruction and Educational Standards:
Is Detente Possible? Theory into Practice , 234-244.
Differentiated instruction is a responsive method of teaching. According to Tomlinson, content,
process and product should be modified to cater for all students based on their readiness,
interests and learning profiles. A flexible curriculum and a flexible pace of teaching are essential
conditions for successful differentiation.
Educational standards are based on standardized assessments. Although these assessments
should not directly influence the way that teachers teach, yet the teachers’ performance is usually
related to how well their students perform in these assessments. This causes stress for teachers to
well prepare their students to pass these tests; hence they tend to teach to the test ignoring the
different needs in their classrooms.
Through three main questions, this article discusses (1) how teachers can differentiate their
instruction and at the same time fulfill the required educational standards, (2) the coexistence of
differentiated instruction and standards and (3) how teachers can maintain standards without
standardization. The article took...
