    Albert Bandura was a psychologist who came up with what is known as the “Social Cognitive Theory” (“Albert Bandura,” 2015). He believed that two aspects, imitation and operant conditioning, result in social learning. According to Hannum (2005), “Bandura noted that our behavior is changed when we see a person take a specific action and be rewarded for that action”. This is where both operant conditioning and imitation comes in. Operant conditioning is any learning that is established through the use of punishments/behaviors (Cherry, 2015). In order for imitation to be successful, there are elements such as direct and vicarious reinforcements (Lefrancois, 2012, p. 326-327).…

    Every profession has roles, responsibilities and boundaries; governed by copious legislation and directed through company policies/ procedures. These ensure objectives are met and identified persons can be made accountable for their functions. In the teaching/ learning sector however, roles can be blurred and legislation somewhat confusing, suggested by Holtrop (1997) “Obviously teachers wear many hats; friend, counsellor, judge, mentor, hundreds of roles and different roles for different classes, students and extracurricular duties”. Nonetheless, the protection and safety of individuals and groups is the fundamental principle, and can be broken down into three key areas; indiscriminate/ appropriate behaviour (Equality Act 2010), personal safety and in the work place (Health & Safety Act 1974) and data protection (Data Protection Act 1988). When working with young people, additional safeguarding is required and can be met through such legislation as The Children Act 2004 and The Work and Families Act 2006. In my role as a tutor in alternative education provision, a large number of my students are referred by Social Services, YOT’s and Police. Therefore our Confidentiality, Health & Safety and Equality & Diversity policies must be read by all staff. CRB checks and risk assessments are also paramount. Such codes of practice can provide different, relevant directions to specific learning environments.…

    As groups are forming it is easy to see that each group member has unique skills and strengths. As a group starts to develop, each group member starts to play a certain role within the group. Roles are very important within in a group because they are part of the basic structure. The roles of small groups are not usually assigned in advance, but overtime emerge within the group. Roles within a group can arise from individuals stepping up to fulfill a role or they already have the skills needed to fulfill a certain role. The group roles can be seen predominantly in the movie "Cool Runnings" where four Jamaican men join together with a coach to become Jamaica's first ever bobsled team. As the new bobsled team is starting their journey toward the Olympic Games, the five characters must learn how to work together as a group. The members of the bobsled team all have different skills and strengths that start to contribute to the overall success of the group. As the movie continues the team members begin to take on informal individual roles within the group. These informal roles can be explained in three main categories consisting of task roles, maintenance roles, and disruptive roles.…

    While watching the film there were many moments that struck me as interesting. The first moment that struck me the most was when Jean Reynolds, who is a 51 year old, certified nursing assistant, daughter said she had cancer. That she would not live for long because Jean could not afford to get her daughter treatment. The second moment that struck me was when Barbara Brooks, a 36 year old, single mother said that she was “hustling backwards”. She wants to provide for her children, and is even trying to get further in her education to accomplish this. However every time she advanced there would be something that pulled her back. For example when she got a raise then they took some of her benefits away.…
