and more to look at

Response paper guidelines Response papers are only 2-3 pages long (double-spaced) so your writing should be concise and focused around a couple of main points. The goal of these reaction papers is to get you to think about the complexities of the important issues raised in the readings. Your response paper should not be just a summary of the assigned readings or video. Instead, after providing a brief (e.g., about one paragraph) summary of the main point or points of the article/video, you should critically evaluate it and demonstrate to us that you have thought about the topic in a sophisticated way

Genetic Screening and Editing Response Paper

There is no one right answer or a single correct way that you should approach these response paper assignments. You may choose to bring up issues related to your own life and connect the material from the assigned reading with a personal issue. Or, you might want to link up the readings with material weíve been discussing in class. Another option is to link it with material from other courses youíve taken or anything that you can convince us is interesting and relevant. Or, you could critique the readings in a sophisticated way that brings in outside sources. You do not need to discuss the entire readings or video after providing a brief summary you should focus on a few particular points

The bottom line is that you should produce thoughtful, well-written response papers that demonstrate that you are thinking about and engaging with the material in a sophisticated way. Make them interesting and unique

Genetic Screening and Editing Response Paper Citations and quotes

I assume that many of the response papers will include citations of material from class (e.g., my lectures and/or required readings) and/or material from outside of class. If you reference anything substantive you should put a citation in the text and then include an extra page with a Literature Cited section that includes an appropriate citation of the work. Also, please limit your use of quotations and use them only when absolutely necessary. As a general rule, it is better to summarize in your own words. If you use a quote, cite as above but also include the page number where the quote originated

Do you see any similarities between the North Dakota and Houston economies? Do you know anyone who is currently being affected by this downturn in the oil market? What are some of the potential solutions that can alleviate this problem right now?

Personally, I brought a Prius in 2013. At the time, gas was about $3.00 per gallon. So I thought I can save a lot of money with my long commute. Then by 2015 gas become really cheap. It was as low as $1.50 per gallon. So I couldn’t save that much money anymore, and I was stuck with a very slow Prius. So I sold the Prius and brought a very immature Subaru WRX. I feel much younger now.

Coach Carter Movie Review by Lasa Baxter

Coach Carter Movie Review by Lasa Baxter Coach Carter depicts the story of a basketball coach’s mission to remake a struggling high school athletic team at Richmond High, where many conflicts exist including lack of discipline, acts of aggression, physical assault, family dysfunction, lack of cohesion, use of inappropriate language, lack of adherence to rules, poor academic success, and yet the players possess a dynamic love for the game and each athlete can identify with the need to be a part of something bigger and better than the streets they live on.

Coach Carter Movie Review by Lasa Baxter
Coach Carter Movie Review by Lasa Baxter

This becomes a driving force in Carter’s attempt to encourage and teach the Richmond basketball team value, hard work, discipline, courage, how to overcome adversity and find something pure and empowering in becoming a successful athlete, student, and team with a mission (goals).

Coach Carter Movie Review by Lasa Baxter

The movie is based on the true story of Coach Ken Carter, a top basketball player who returned to his local high school to coach this dysfunctional team. Carter is a self-made businessman who lives by moral absolutes. He comes from the middle-class of a poor California city, has made money, has a son that is talented both in academics and basketball and who ultimately demands to play for his father at Richmond rather than St. Francis, a top school in the area in which he was accepted.

Carter’s strategies to develop mental skills include, demanding and owning respect until it is abused. For example, use of terms such as “Sir” rather than derogatory means of addressing others. He requires his players to sign a contract that outlines program rules and expectations that must be adhered to in order to participate in his basketball program. The contract then becomes a binding force that can be utilized to teach the athletes what it means to keep their word, being trustworthy and disciplined. I too use a contract that provides written expectations for my athletes. I believe this is a sound method that assists players in knowing what is expected of them in order to have the privilege of playing volleyball in my program. It also functions as a tool for parents to assist their children in meeting set goals and expectations. Carter required the athletes to dress and behave as if they are winners. This helped him to create an environment that fostered success. From my experience players that are confident in their appearance and who behave like winners are more likely to become just that. In addition, these acts draw the attention of others, which provides an environment where there is accountability for one’s actions. Carter has very high expectations for his team which allows them much room for improvement and the ability to reach for something bigger than what they had previously known. He teaches discipline by strictly adhering to rules outlined, using physical conditioning, and teaching that winning is not enough. I support all of the aforementioned methods for developing positive mental skills in athletes.

Coach Carter Movie Review by Lasa Baxter

Some methods Carter used to develop mental skills though may have been inappropriate. He chose to punish all players for the actions of one. In another instance a player who had broken many rules and who had been excused from the team for being violent and disrespectful begged to come back. Carter made an allowance for the player to come back providing he met a conditioning requirement that was impossible to attain. He told the player to give up and to leave because the task was impossible to achieve. Although his methods seemed to work in achieving intended goals in the movie, they just as easily could have worked in reverse. These methods often discourage and deflate athletes. Often athletes don’t rise to the challenge. Instead, athletes are left with confirmation that their feelings of self-doubt and lack of ability are accurate.

This kind of discouragement can lead to lack of confidence, negative self-talk, and refusal to participate because an athlete fears trying when they believe they will be unable to achieve.

During a gym lock-out from practices and games that Carter initiated due to players lack of adherence to academic rules, the school board votes to overturn his actions and open the gym. As a result, Carter chooses to leave his position. Rather than this happening his players rally behind his decision to stick to the plan he started. As a result, Carter stays and the gym remains closed until the entire team meets his academic eligibility requirements. He believes that asking anything less of his team will send them the message that what he believes so strongly in is false and that athletics are more important than academics.

Coach Carter Movie Review by Lasa Baxter

Ultimately, Richmond makes it through an undefeated season with the exception of the games they forfeited during the lock-out. The team champions through the playoffs and receives and invite to play for the state championship where they play the number one team St. Francis. Richmond loses their final game at the buzzer but gains enormous success in building team cohesion, camaraderie, spirit, and love for each other, self-respect, and academic achievement.

Coach Carter Movie Review by Lasa Baxter

Carter’s methods in team building and developing mental strategies by using team cohesion are supported in the text by Weinberg and Gould. Team cohesion works because it motivates those who have a desire for interpersonal interactions with others. In addition, there are benefits that each member of the group (team) can derive from association with the group.

Working together to achieve common goals is motivating and rewarding and often results in feelings of success. Cohesive teams are more likely to conform to expectations and adhere to rules because there is accountability amongst team members.

Coach Carter Movie Review by Lasa Baxter

Ultimately, team cohesion leads to success which leads to feelings of satisfaction. The greater the satisfaction the more likely performance is enhanced. These actions form a reciprocal relationship that suggests Carter’s methods have a strong foundation for success.

Using Court film, explain why a specific social or personal circumstance depicted in the film was especially meaningful to you in understanding other people’s everyday reality. Particularly, did these images help you reflect upon your own assumptions about the way you yourself understand the world?

Be careful the paper is not about cinema or films; it is about development, globalization, and the way neoliberal policies impact people life.

Do not copy and paste, the paper should be purely your work.

Use only provided sources and the film. Court movie is accessible in YouTube.

While using sources, put it in quotations and cite properly: (Authors last name, page number).

And note that I need a high-quality university level paper.

If you do not consider these instructions I will simply cancel the contract.

Thanks for understanding.

– Provide some plot but very minimal

– Give several points in both movies where anagnorisis occurred through traveling

– 2 academic sources are required. Please use appropriate sources and paraphrase or quote (Best place to find it is through google.com/scholars). At this stage, given their ever-increasing prolificacy, the very definition of what a Netflix original movie is has become a bit foggy. Unlike a smaller independent, whose library of titles might share surface-level similarities, the streaming giant has morphed into a bigger studio, churning out films across all genres, trying to do it all and sometimes, just sometimes, actually succeeding.
