Deliverable Length: At least 15 pages

The family is in an enduring social institution, and today, many families are being impacted by the needs of their aging members. The family, as a unit, provides the link to understanding the intergenerational history and heritage, acknowledgment of the present, and the hope for the future of the family. The family of today deals with various challenges, including social, cultural, ethnic, environmental, economic and socioeconomic, psychosocial, community, and special issue concerns. Because families are unique and the development of the family depends on responses to common and uncommon experiences shaping and molding the family environment, it is critical to understand all of the theoretical frameworks, multiple systems, and total processes of assessment and intervention options. This will help the family resolve issues and improve functionality within their family unit and community. Complete the following:

  • Create a fictional family with at least 3 generations, one of them aging, within the family.
  • Identify an older member of the family who may be either active or frail and elderly and may or may not live in the household.
  • Identify both the strengths and needs of the family.
  • Identify the problem that will be addressed.
  • Provide a theoretical perspective on aging by which this problem will be addressed.
  • Compare and contrast courses of action using appropriate counseling techniques.

The paper is to be at least 15 pages and requires a minimum of 5 resources within the last 5 years. APA, 6th edition formatting is required.


The self-assessment is completed using the TIGER-based  Assessment of Nursing Informatics Competencies  (TANIC) tool. TIGER refers to the Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform Initiative which identified a list of the minimum informatics competencies for all nurses and students graduating from pre- and post-licensure programs.  The graded self-evaluation of your informatics competencies is required in order to increase one’s own understanding  of competencies in nursing informatics which will enable  the planning of strategies to  enhance knowledge and skills.

Reflect and respond to EACH of the following questions.

  1. Regarding the Post-TANIC Self-Assessment for this week, how does your competency level during week 7 compare to the Week 2 Self-Assessment?
  2. Which competencies do you think may benefit you in your future role as an APN and why?
  3. As discussed in the lesson this week, healthcare providers must be competent in informatics in order to make ethical decisions about informatics technologies and patients’ intimate healthcare data and information. To the extent that information technology is reshaping healthcare practices or promises to improve patient care, healthcare professionals must possess certain competencies which will assist with consistency and quality. Which competencies did you achieve in this course? Explain.

Activity 3: Case Study Human Resources

Activity 3: Case Study Human Resources (50%)


In this Case study you’re asked to apply the contents of the HRM Module to the practice of HRM in a sport context.

A few practical guidelines:

– Please deliver assignments 3.1 and 3.2 in one report

– Add a title page with your name and a title in your report

– Add a list of contents in your report

– Refer to resources and add a resources list

Assignment 3.1: SRSA Annual Reports

Step 1) Compare the HR chapters of the SRSA Annual Reports of 17/18 and 18/19. What development(s) do you read in the HRM vision and/or practices in the two reports?

– Refer to the contents of the module in your explanation.

– Indication for the length: 1 A4, Calibri 11.

Step 2) Write a HR chapter for the report of 19/20 based on the contents of the module. What do you think we can expect in that report?

– No specific data from the SRSA is compulsory. You can use what is available on internet.

– Furthermore: use your own imagination, it is a ‘free writing’ assignment about your vison on HRM! So what do you think should be in a company’s HR chapter in the annual report of 2019-2020?

– Indication for the length: 1 A4, Calibri 11.

STAR process

For the second part of the assignment, you will write a short paper that describes some specific steps you should take related to improving your presentation skills. The paper should address both your delivery, as well as the content of your presentation. Specifically:

  • How well did you follow the STAR process in constructing your response? What do you feel you did well and what could you have done better? Was there something that you should have included?
  • From the perspective of delivering the presentation, what went well, and what needed improvement? (Look for eye contact, hand gestures, confidence, etc.) What are your strategies for improving the delivery of this type of information for future job interviews?

The paper should be 2 – 4 pages in length, double-spaced, and use Times New Roman 12 font (absolutely no PDFs). Submit through the assignments tab in Blackboard.

Once the papers are submitted, you will need to go back into Bongo and review 5 other students presentations. Bongo will randomly assign you to view specific students.

paraphrases of sections of the secondary source

tor in an Olsen fiction, it is a moment of perceiving, of knowing that there is shape and direction in the ceaseless flow of what must be. Mazie comes to writing occasionally; so does her mother, Anna, who “stagger[s]” in the sunlight and moves beyond the helpless “My head is balloony, balloony” to sing her love for her eldest child and her joy in motherhood: “O Shenandoah, I love thy daughter, / I’ll bring her safe through stormy water.”

But more often, when Mazie is immersed in a potentially luminous moment, she perceives it as “stammering light” and when “she turns her hand to hold” it, “she grasps shadows.” Anna moves through the daily drudgery “not knowing an every-hued radiance floats on her hair.” As for Jim, her husband, “the things in his mind so vast and formless, so terrible and bitter, cannot be spoken, will never be spoken–till the day that hands will find a way to speak this: hands.”

The hands are Olsen’s hands, grasping her pen to copy a fragment of Walt Whitman’s poem as the epigraph to her novel “From the Thirties”:

No picture, poem, statement, passing them to the future:
Yonnondio! Yonnondio!–unlimn’d they disappear;
To-day gives place, and fades–the cities, farms, factories fade;
A muffled sonorous sound, a wailing word is borne through the air for a moment,
Then blank and gone and still, and utterly lost.

Yonnondio! That evocative word is the emblem of Tillie Olsen’s aesthetic. It is her plea, and her pledge: that the unobserved should be perceived, that the fleeting should be fixed, that the inarticulate should come to writing.

Source Database:  Contemporary Literary Criticism

Reading and Printing Secondary Sources from the Literature Resource Center

By now, you have learned

  • how to find the database called the Literature Resource Center at the WSCC library and
  • how to find secondary sources for Tillie Olsen in that database.

Examining the Search Results

On March 03, 2004 there were 16 items found from a search for Tillie Olsen as a keyword AND as and author AND “I Stand Here Ironing” as any words in a title. (REMEMBER TO CHOOSE “CRITICAL ESSAY” AS THE DOCUMENT TYPE; REMEMBER TO CHOOSE “*ALL DATABASES*” AS THE DATABASE.)

Some of the results of that search on that date returned the following secondary sources:

1. O’Connor, William Van, “The Stories of Tillie Olsen,” in Studies in Short Fiction.

2. Rose, Ellen Cronan, “Limming: or Why Tillie Writes,” in The Hollins Critic.

3. Culver, Sara.  “Extending the Boundaries of the Ego: Eva in ‘Tell Me a Riddle.” in Midwestern Miscellany X.

and so on.

Reading the Secondary Source

To read the secondary source, you can click on the blue title of the article. When you do that, you will see the entire article on your screen. As you read through the essay, you will see several words in black bold typeface.  Some of those black bold words are titles; others are the keywords (Tillie Olsen, “I Stand Here Ironing”) that you set up in the search engine values as you began the search.

As you read through the essay by skimming and scanning, do not expect the entire essay to always be about the story you are interested in. (Often these essays compare and contrast several stories by the one author or several stories by several authors.)

Therefore, what is more likely is that you will find one or two paragraphs of interest to you for your paper. Use your skimming and scanning skills to read quickly over the parts you do not need and then to zero in on the parts of the essay that holds interest to you.

Printing the Secondary Source

When you find a source that has parts of interest to you, you will want to print out the essay or parts of it. There are several ways for you to do that. Here are a few of the possibilities:

1.Using Print from Your Browser

You can print the essay by going to the word FILE at the top of your browser window. Click on File; then click on Print. This works, but it prints out a lot of blank space and often prints extra, blank pages.

2. Using Print from the Literature Resource Center

You can print the essay by going to the word Print which can be found above the words REVISE SEARCH and CURRENT RESULTS near the top of the page. You will also see an icon of a printer beside this word. This print option is helpful since it doesn’t print a lot of extraneous material from the page.

3. Printing an Email to Yourself

You can send this essay to yourself as an email. To do that, find the word Email above the words REVISE SEARCH and CURRENT RESULTS near the top of the page. You will also see an icon of an envelope beside this word. This option lets you send yourself an email and then print the email from your email software–good because it does not print a lot of extraneous material from the page.

4. Using Copy and Paste in Word

You can highlight portions or all of the essay and then copy and paste it in a Word file. To do that, use your cursor to highlight the material you wish to copy. After highlighting, hit CTRL C (or right click) to COPY. Then, open a new page in your word processor, click into the new page. Then, hit CTRL V (or right click) to PASTE. Save the file and then print it.

Saving the Source Information

Remember to retain the source information (title and author and journal name, etc) as you print out the source material. You will need to use this information later as you cite the source in your paper and as you construct the entry for your Works Cited page.

Critically Reading and Annotating Secondary Sources from the Literature Resource Center

By now, you have learned how to

  • find the database called the Literature Resource Center at the electronic database library
  • find secondary sources for Tillie Olsen in that database
  • examine the search results
  • read and quickly skim and scan the source, and
  • print the source or parts of it.

Now that you have printed out sources of interest to you, you are ready to carefully read the source, annotate the print out of the source, and take notes about the secondary source.

Here’s how:

1. Read the secondary source differently from how you read stories, poems, plays.  You will want to see the larger argument (thesis) of the entire essay and find details, examples, explanations, and reasons that support the thesis of the source and how they relate to the points you want to make in your paper.

2. Underline sections of the print out that are of interest to you.

3. Write notes in the margins of the print out responding to the ideas of the secondary source.

4. Find information from the secondary source that might support your points. Or, find information that takes issue with or disagree with your points.  You can still use information from a source that you disagree with or that disagrees with you.  You will just want to work the dissenting information into your argument in your own essay–using concession, refutation, acknowledging points of disagreement or ambiguity.

5. Write out paraphrases of sections of the secondary source that are of greatest interest and use to you in your paper.

6. Write out summaries of sections of the secondary source that are of great interest and use to you in your paper.

7. Throughout, think about how you will work the ideas, information, quotations, paraphrases, and summaries into your own paper.

8. Throughout, avoid plagiarism by citing all the ideas, information, quotations, paraphrases, and summaries from the secondary sources.

Now you will want to incorporate material from the secondary source into the draft of Paper 5 you have already written. You will do this in the same manner that you integrated secondary source material in Paper 4.Take a look back at how to introduce borrowed material (ideas, information, quotations, paraphrases, and summaries) from the secondary source into your paper.
