Labor Laws and Unions
Choose an organization with which you are familiar that is currently unionized.
Outline the organization chosen by including the following:
• Provide brief background information on your chosen organization.
• Identify legal issues and obstacles that this organization could encounter.
• Determine which federal, state, or local laws could be broken because of these legal issues and why.
• Provide recommendations to minimize possible litigation.
Write a paper of no more than 700 words discussing the effects of the union on the chosen organization. Address the following questions:
• What are the organization’s benefits of joining a union?
• What is the unionization process?
• How does a union bargain?
• What effects does union bargaining have on the organization?
I need to write a legal memorandum. Below is the instructions. I hope you understand the statues and how to cite.
Here is my question:
Under Illinois law, can the state stop payments on public employee pensions?
Submit an outline of your course project. Include your issue(s), preliminary version of the “rule” or short answer to the extent you have been able to identify it, and a detailed draft of your discussion section.
The discussion section should organize and structure the components of your analysis. For example, you might have a paragraph to describe each applicable statute, a paragraph for cases on point, one or more paragraphs about what the scholarly secondary sources say on your issue, and/or a paragraph about any administrative rules, regulations, codes, or other issues that apply. Use the outline to structure and set out the information that you have reviewed and analyzed in your research. You may find that there is no single, clear answer to the question you have asked, or that the answer depends upon other factors. That is fine — your job is simply to set out what you have discovered whether or not is the expected or desired outcome.Read More | Order Now

***Use a basic PE Kindergarten lesson plan for the physical education component. Review the three standards for physical education:
Personal Health and Fitness
A Safe and Healthy Environment
***25 Kindergarten students in a class, one teacher.
This is a reflective journal describing your experience in a science classroom and physical education classroom. Below are guides for your observation journal entries. The journal does not have to be an extensive document, but it will be useful to type your thoughts/observations, approximately two-four paragraphs per prompt.
Week 1– Observation Focus: Context: What is the context of the school: student body make-up, grades, general classroom demographics, the school environment, classroom setting, school morale, physical environment, social environment of the school and classroom you are observing, etc.? What is the science curriculum in the classroom?
Week 2– Observation Focus: Student Diversity: Who is a student least/most like me? How do I teach science for this student, and other students of linguistic, cultural, academic, and social diversity? How different are the students I am observing and will teach? How can you assess what students know and understand in science? What kinds of assessment practices are being used in their science classroom?
Week 3– Observation Focus: Science Instruction: Is science being taught? How is science being taught? How are students learning and understanding science? What teaching strategies is the teacher using? Do students really understand science? What are students learning in other areas that can be used for making science more relevant and easier to understand? Where could you see science integrated into the regular classroom curriculum?
Physical Education Instruction: How do these children understand physical education and health? Do they talk about any objectives included in the state standards?
Analyze your observation and your interviews in relation to the 3 health and physical education standards. Where does the school seem to meet or exceed the standards? Where does it seem to fall short of meeting the standards?
Week 4– Observation Focus: Science Communication: How well do students talk about science in the classroom? How well do students make connections between personal talk and language and the language of science? Record some specific examples of what students say in the science classroom where they are communicating their science understanding. How can you help students talk about science in ways that build their understanding of science?
Week 5– Reflection: Re-read your four journal entries. What did you learn about elementary science from observing and working in this classroom? What did you learn from the classroom teacher and the science teacher? What factors seem to be important in teaching and learning science?
Work individually to complete this assignment. You will be posting journal entries, one per book section, about your reaction to Where am I Wearing? The purposes of this journal are: to stimulate thought about the course material (even when you are not in class), to point out the relevance of the course concepts to everyday life, and to provide a starting point for class discussions about the material.
For entry, you should write a minimum of two paragraphs. The first paragraph should provide a brief overview of the chapters in that section (e.g., what happened in the chapter, what countries/factories he visited, which people he interacted with, etc.). The second paragraph should provide your reaction to the chapter. Exactly what you write in the second paragraph is up to you. Some things that you might consider writing about include, but are not limited to: how the material covered in the chapter relates to the material covered in the class, how the material covered in the chapter changed or strengthened your ideas or opinions about global apparel sourcing, how the material covered in the chapter relates to an experience you have personally had, how the material covered in the chapter will influence your future decisions as an apparel professional, or any questions that you have about the chapter or the course materials.
You will be using Moodle to upload your assignments.
Your journal entries are due BEFORE the chapters are discussed in class. There are five (5) dates for your submitting journal. These dates are posted in the calendar in the syllabus. So, make sure you keep up with your reading and journal postings as the course moves along.
Your journal entries will be graded on content only. Grammar and spelling will not be assessed. However, it is easier for the instructor and the TA(s) to understand your content if your grammar and spelling do not distract the readers.
Grading (20 points):
_____ First paragraph summary (8 points)
_____ Second paragraph reactions (12 points)
displays a thoughtful response to chapter information, makes connections to course content or life experiences

Each week we will have a journal assignment. I’d like to give you a couple of tips. The first thing you will want to do is go to week 5 and read the final project assignment. The second thing you will want to do is choose two organizations, one for-profit and one not-for-profit. I would recommend picking organizations that will give you a lot of material to write about (hint: scandals usually involve ethical dilemmas). This is an ethics class and I often have students pick their favorite charities only to find out they cannot find enough to write about. I feel that the purpose of the journal is to force you to write a little bit each week so that you do not come into week 5 with an overwhelming project to complete. I would like you to use the organizations you have chosen in answering the prompt questions, when applicable. I understand that sometimes these questions do not apply to your organizations; but do the best that you can. I would recommend writing 1-2 pages each week. You may use the form provided; I will also accept a Word document. What I look for when I grade these assignments is a demonstration that you understand the material discussed throughout this course. I have included the Journal from week 1 so that you can continue with the same organizations needed to complete the final paper
I have included the Journals from week 1,2 and 3
III. Journal Assignment
Over the course of the semester, you will be examining a variety of current issues in the field of early childhood and the ways in which they impact young children and families. For this assignment, you will choose an issue that is of interest to you, and examine the different perspectives involved, those of the various “stakeholders” (i.e., parents/caregivers, teachers, administrators, legislators, etc…). Some of these issues might include: standardized testing and the accountability movement in early childhood, cutting of the arts, the impact of media, changing family dynamics, oral and written language development, etc.
Once you have decided on an issue to focus on, search for materials that examine that particular issue (i.e., local newspaper article, news magazines such as Time, Newsweek, US News & World Report, scholarly journals such as Young Children or others as listed below).
o Child Care Quarterly
o Child Development
o Childhood Education (ACEI)
o Children Today
o Day Care and Early Education
o Journal of Research in Childhood Education (ACEI)
Your 3-page paper should include the following:
• Introduction: Provides an overview of the article’s purpose and main argument
• Summary: Briefly review the article’s key points, and discuss the viewpoints of the “stakeholders” involved.
• Analysis paragraphs:
• Analyze the article’s strengths and weaknesses. In doing so, remember to
discuss gaps in the article/study that the author does not address.
• Discuss whether you agree/disagree with the author’s conclusions and why.
• Discuss the larger implications for the field of Early Childhood – how does this issue impact those involved? What are your ideas for working toward a solution or consensus with regard to this issue?
Your analysis should help the reader see that which s/he might have otherwise missed in their own review of the piece.Read More | Order Now
