Case Study: Mrs. S – Death of a Son
Mrs. S. is a 48-year-old woman who recently immigrated to St. Petersburg, Florida from West Africa. She is a mother of four and a grandmother of six. She has no friends in Florida as she has only been in the United States for a year. She is of the Muslim faith and attends religious services sporadically at a mosque in Tampa, Florida. Her religious beliefs are strongly internalized.
Her husband died of a genetic heart disorder at the time of the birth of her son, Micha, some 22 years ago. She supported herself and her children by carrying on the family business of food brokerage. Her youngest son, Justin, had begged her to come to America after she had sent him there to expand the family business. One year later, she followed at the request of her second son, Paulo, whose wife had left him with three young children. She came to help the family and care for the children in a comfortable home where Micha also lived. She has two other children, a married daughter with one child who lives in Minnesota and a son who lives in West Africa.
Her son, Micha, worked as a deliveryman for a grocery market. He began complaining of fatigue and wanted to quit this job but felt that he had to have another job first. He was engaged to be married to a young Christian woman who also urged him to continue with this job until he found another one. He never told his fiancée of his tiredness because he was worried about finances, as he had no benefits or health insurance and a salary of about 9 dollars an hour. He had hoped to go back to school to obtain a degree.
Mrs. S. was very close to Micha, who as an infant and child slept with her. He had always been her favorite child. She felt that he was “her husband, her father, and her brother” who had all died. She said he replaced the grief she felt for all the men she had lost. He was always very attentive to her needs. He would listen to her concerns, take her out, and buy her things. He never said no to any of her requests. Recently, she felt that she had not paid enough attention to him. She had been focusing her attention on her grandchildren and Paulo, who was going through so much turmoil with his wife’s “desertion.”
Although she had told Micha to quit his job and to go to the doctor, she had not insisted. At the time, she felt that he was an adult and she respected his independence and choice not to see a physician. Micha rushed out from his bedroom screaming in pain early one morning, collapsed and died of a heart attack from a genetic heart condition. This was a traumatic shock to all of the family, but one that Mrs. S. now feels extremely guilty about.
Eight months after Micha’s death, Mrs. S. states she cannot forgive herself and wishes God would take her so she can be with her son and husband. She states she would not commit suicide as it is against her religion, and if she did commit suicide, she would not be able to see her son again. She longs to see him even if only in her dreams.
Mrs. S. is only sleeping soundly for about two hours a night. She wanders the house at night hoping to feel and see Micha just one last time. Her appetite has decreased considerably. She has lost interest in her personal care and only dresses in the late afternoon right before her son, Paulo, comes home from work.
She chooses not to leave the home and no longer goes out to the backyard to watch the grandchildren play. She no longer goes to the mosque but prefers to stay in her room. She refuses to allow anyone to go in or touch Micha’s things in his room. She has asked the youngest boy grandchild to sleep with her at night so she does not become “frightened” or “lonely” during the night.
She has developed pain in her left side, headaches and stomach pains but refuses medical intervention. She states that doctors are too expensive here and she does not want to burden her son who now works two jobs to support the family. A concerned co-worker of Paulo’s suggests he contact the local hospice as maybe they can help his grieving mother.

For the proposal, you will need three elements:
1. Outline the details of the case itself. Think in terms of the 5 W’s: What, Who, Where, When, Why. Provide a summary of all of the relevant details that someone would need in order to grasp the case.
2. Identify and briefly justify the two theoretical approaches (one general approach, one normative approach) that you plan to use in the analysis.
3. Briefly outline what the analysis will look like. Using those theories, what are the relevant parts of the scenario? How do the two theories fit together?
With each draft proposal you submit, I will make comments and ask questions intended to clarify the argument. You will revise and resubmit the proposal until it gets approved. Once approved, the proposal will receive full credit. I don’t expect any proposal to be approved on the first draft; you will be revising. That’s a good thing because with each new draft of the proposal, you will get closer to an easy writing process for the final case study.

Freebody and Luke’s (1997) Four Resources Model helps us consider critical literacy and its place in Literacy education. Briefly explain the model with emphasis on Text Critic or Analyst. Why should Critical Literacy be addressed within the elementary Literacy curriculum? Tell briefly how you might incorporate elements of Critical Literacy into ‘everyday’ teaching practices? Any words of caution in this area? Identify one picture book and briefly describe how it would provide a basis for teaching one aspect of Critical Literacy to children.
Include full referencing information on the book you name so the group can gather a list of titles for future Critical Literacy lessons.
Eg: Author’s surname, first initial. (year of publication). Title. Place of publication: Publisher
Required Reading:
Course text: Chapter 1 Introduction to Language and Literacy Education (pp. 14-26) and Chapter 2 Planning for Language and Literacy Education.
Pearson Education (2006) article on Freebody and Luke’s model.

The paper is on the book The Fifth Season by N.K Jemisen
Instructions are as follows: Essays in literature make claims about the content of texts based off of evidence from primary (the book/story/poem itself). This essay should not be:
A) A summary–While there may be moments when you need to “set the scene” and describe the events of a passage or a section of the book, don’t just reiterate the plot of a story or novel.
B) A book report/opinion–Whether you like the story/book or not isn’t relevant to a literary analysis. (I’ve written whole chapters on books I kind of hate). Nor should you make subjective assessments regarding author or character motivations. (“I think she screams because she’s scared.”) Rather, you want to make claims about what a passage or a text means using the language of the text to confirm your claims. If what you’re seeing is there, you should be able to find words, passages, or descriptions that make that clear. Your presentation of this evidence is the way that you confirm your interpretation of the text.
The essay must be no less than five full pages and no more than eight, double-spaced, Times New Roman or Garamond 12-point font with 1″ margins on all sides. There is no limit to maximum length of the essay, but if it reaches ten pages you may wish to consider whether your claim is focused enough or whether there is room to edit for conciseness.
In addition to being of sufficient length and acceptably formatted, a successful essay must include the following:
1) A clear and arguable thesis. Your thesis statement will typically appear in your introduction. It cannot be a question or a statement of fact. It must make a single, focused claim about the text you are analyzing that can be argued. All of your later arguments, evidence, and claims in the essay should point directly back to this thesis.
2) Textual evidence. You must quote the text in order to establish any claim you make about it. If you say that Randy Bragg is a “strong figure in his community,” you must back that up by providing clear examples with pagination.
3) At least two close-readings: related to #2, you will want to have at minimum two close readings of passages in the text.
4) Evidence of proofreading: Essays with numerous errors and problematic sentence structures become unwieldy to read. Be sure to take time go over the essay and:
A) Edit for conciseness–avoid repetition, don’t use five words if you can use two. Try to make every word count.
B) Edit for spelling and grammar–the essay is not graded on this, but if there are a lot of careless errors, it can be penalized for it.
5) A clear organization structure: It should be evident why you move from one point to the next, and how you situate your evidence to make the strongest case for your claim. Your organization should be reliant upon your thesis and aimed at effectively establishing it.
There should be no outside sources for Essay 3. This is a test of your ability to wring meaning from a text. There are also no prompts. You must devise a thesis based off of the material in the novel and your questions concerning it.
I know it says 5 pages but I just need 2-3 to turn in a draft.
Note that everything is ran through turn it in.com for plagarism.

Sociology

We have explored many areas of social life. Now is your opportunity to consider

We have explored many areas of social life. Now is your opportunity to consider one of sociology’s foundational questions: How do we create social change? How do YOU create social change?
Answer the following questions. Head for about 100 words per answer.
1) Thoughts on Williams’ Got Power, Johnson’s What Can We Do, and/or Kaufman’s Everyday Activists? What did you find inspiring? Interesting? Thoughtful? How can you apply any of their suggestions to your own interests in social change?
2) Spend 20-30 minutes looking through the Additional Items of Interest in this module (and maybe revisit some from the previous modules where there are other people/organizations working on social change.) Pick at least two (pick more (or all!) if you feel ambitious!. What interests you about the issue(s) they’re working on? How are they (whoever they are) trying to create social change and in what area of social life? Is the approach cultural or structural? (How do you know?) What type of social movement is it (according to Newman’s typology in Chapter 14)?
If you know a group or organization doing work that inspires you, feel free to include them in your responses, too.
3) This is your last discussion together. If we were in a classroom, we’d do a closing ritual. We’d stand in a circle. I’d toss a ball to the first person. They would a) tell us what, of the areas of social life we discussed this semester, they would like to change about our society and how they might go about doing that, b) share their main take away from the class and c) take a minute to say good bye. And then they would throw the ball to the second person… and so on. Imagine we’re in that circle. Now’s your chance… a, b and c….
