Please answer questions on Buddhism

REL 212 Week 3 – Buddhism

shared beliefs and concepts tied back to similar origins out of the Vedic
scriptures and traditions that are foundational for Hinduism (Brahmanism,
Buddhism directs the hearts and minds of its adherents to a liberation from the
burdens, suffering and many limitations of worldly existence.  Thus, Buddhism, as a non-theistic tradition,
can be considered to be as much of a philosophical system as it is a religious
tradition.  Consider the following
questions drawn from foundational concepts in Buddhism:

1)  Is desire (craving) good or bad or, can
desire be either good or bad (Fisher, pp. 143 – 145)?  How do desires reveal an individual’s sense
of the “meaning and purpose of life?” 
How do you think desires relate to religious ethics in Buddhism (e.g.,
the Noble Eightfold Path, Fisher, pp. 145 – 146)?

2)  What causes and solutions can you think
of regarding the problem of human suffering? 
Can suffering be entirely avoided in this life?  If so, what are some of the steps one might
take to reduce or eliminate suffering in their life?

3)  What is enlightenment (Fisher, p. 148 –
149)?  How can one obtain
enlightenment?  Is enlightenment
attainable in this life?

4)  How does the Buddhist concept of sunyata reflect Ultimate Reality
(Fisher, p. 160 – 161)?  How do
traditional Theravada and Mahayana branches of Buddhism differ from Pure Land
Buddhism (Fisher, pp. 151 – 161; 166)?

TSL 2083 Seminole State College of Florida Content Reading and Writing Lesson Plan

Chapter 11 builds on chapter 10 by continuing discussing reading strategies. In this case, post reading strategies are presented. Then everything is put together with content reading and writing and English learners. So this assignment has you combine your knowledge of these areas from the course as well.

To synthesize the course content and funnel it specifically into content reading and writing, create a differentiated lesson plan. Use the model on textbook pages 467-468. 

Include the

  • 5 areas at the top: Theme, Grades. English Language Proficiency, Vocabulary/Concepts, English Language Skills
  • 7 bold numbered items (most of the bold items have some further explanation in italics)

This lesson is about content reading and writing, so be sure that this lesson is not focused on an English Language Arts unit or topic. It should be for a content area (Science, Math, or Social Studies – a specific area and topic within one of these.)  If you utilize ideas from a lesson plan you find online, please cite the source you used in a Resources: section on your lesson plan. 

TSL 2083 Seminole State College What Reading Experiences Stand out For You Ques

With older students, it can be useful to have students complete a reading autobiography at the beginning of the year. This lets you know some of their background experiences with reading, some of their favorite topics, genres, and books, and a bit about their reading level. It is helpful to also write an autobiography yourself. It can be read aloud to students or shared in hard copy. It gives a model of the assignment for students, builds rapport, and shows, in some cases, that all reading experiences may not be good ones. This assignment is a variation of a reading autobiography.

This assignment has two parts. The first part is to reflect on your own reading experiences. The second part is to to think about these experiences with regard to English learners.

Part 1: Answer the following questions about your personal reading experiences:

When did you first learn to read?

What reading experiences stand out for you? High points? Low points?

Who or what supported your reading experiences? Who or what discouraged it?

Were there times in your school/reading experience – or the materials – made you feel like an insider? Like an outsider?

What are the types of things you like to read?

What are the types of things you dislike reading?

In which electronic formats (online, internet, e-reader like a Kindle, iPad, etc.) do you read? Discuss how that is the same/different for you from reading print materials.

Part 2: Answer the following questions with regard to English learners:

Were you a non-native speaker in any of your classroom reading experiences?

If yes, what if any effect did that have on your reading experiences?

If no, how do you think an English learner would do if he/she had the same reading experiences that you did?

How could you use a reading autobiography assignment with English learners? What changes would you make?

Comprensión De Textos en Español Práctica Spanish Reading

I’m working on a spanish question and need support to help me study.

Lee el texto.

Un estudio de la Universidad de Granada

Según un estudio reciente hecho en la Universidad de Granada, los jóvenes españoles han abandonado la dieta mediterránea de antes. Sus compañeros inmigrantes comen y desayunan mucho mejor. Estos son los resultados del estudio realizado por Lorena Ramos Chamorro, Universidad de Granada. Ha analizado las costumbres de 800 jóvenes españoles e inmigrantes de entre 12 y 18 años de edad que viven en dos diferentes regiones, el País Vasco y Castilla y León.

El desayuno

Las chicas españolas saben muy bien qué es una buena dieta. Sin embargo, cuando compran chucherías, piensan que pierden peso haciendo ejercicio en el gimnasio después. De igual modo, los chicos españoles saben muy bien qué deben desayunar cada día (el78% de los entrevistados desayunan algo), pero no tardan ni cinco minutos en hacerlo, a veces, sólo es un vaso de leche y una galleta. Mejor costumbre tienen los jóvenes inmigrantes, porque aunque sólo el 58% desayuna, quienes lo hacen, en el menú incluyen cereales, leche y zumos. Además, suelen desayunar en general durante diez minutos.

La comida preferida

En general, para los estudiantes inmigrantes de la encuesta (en su mayoría sudamericanos, árabes, chinos y originarios de países bálticos) la carne y los cereales son lo prioritario a la hora de cenar. También toman frutas y verduras, zumos naturales e incluso pescado, un alimento no muy popular entre los jóvenes españoles. Las comidas preferidas por los estudiantes nacidos en España son, por orden, la pasta, la carne, la comida rápida y, en último lugar, los cereales.

Las razones

Una de las razones de estas diferencias, según el estudio, es que los jóvenes inmigrantes suelen tener menos dinero para comprar chucherías o comida rápida. Como resultado de su dieta tienen un índice de masa corporal más bajo que los españoles.
