STEP TWO:

Complete your Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) and/or Meet with a Counselor to do your CEP

If you have already met with a counselor, you don’t have to meet with one again. But, make sure you upload your CEP here. In addition to the courses you are currently taking, you will want to list all future semesters until you meet your goal to either transfer or graduate. Here are two types you can download to fill out. You do not have to be a Cuyamaca College student to fill out a CEP. High School students, university students, and/or Grossmont students can all do a CEP that lists the classes they plan on taking each semester until they graduate (degree or certificate) or transfer.

In 2-4 pages of content,

  1. Select one and only one idea. Your idea can reference a theory, a finding, or a construct (from the each of the three units in the course). Again, select one, and only one idea. Attempts to develop more than one idea will work against coherence and defy unity—two fundamental features of good scholarly writing.
  1. Name the idea and paraphrase how the text defines it. Indicate the chapter and page number(s) from the text where you found the idea. If the text does not explicitly define the idea, then please define it in your own terms and refer to the chapter and page(s) in the text that imply your definition.
  1. Next, develop the idea. That is, in your own words, elaborate the meaning of the idea using the textbook’s content. You want to represent the various ways that the text presents the idea’s core content. Also, you want to represent various factors or facets of the idea. In short, you need to provide a comprehensive representation of the idea’s core and related elements.
  1. State why the idea appeals to you intellectually. Here are some common standards: it has deep theoretical significance, it is generally applicable to the population it is connected to, it might help others, and so forth. Be sure to develop your reasons, making sure they are relevant to your idea.
  1. Apply the idea to a sample of relational communication. Legitimate modes of communication behavior include actual interaction behavior in a close relationship that you regenerate specifically, book passages that concretely illustrate relational communication, a film that features relational implications, and so forth. In brief, you will use your communication sample to illustrate your idea. If you have a question about the appropriateness of your communication sample, be sure to contact me.
  1. Conclude your paper by noting strengths and limitations of your effort. Elaborate why you see these as strengths and limitations.

  1. Submit a polished, well-written paper. It should be stylistically clear and grammatically clean. Be sure to use a style manual—either the one published by the American Psychological Association (APA) or by the Modern Language Association (MLA). I prefer APA though will accept MLA. Here are the sites for the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) that contain the APA and MLA style guidelines.

Each week in your discussion board, you will assume the role of a leadership team in a human resources department. You will be given a topic with which to wrestle questions fundamental to managing your department as well as managing people in the larger organization. Using the course materials as springboards for your basis of methodology, you are expected, as a group of leaders, to come up with solutions to challenges facing human resource departments, generally, and human resources managers, specifically.

For this assignment, come up with a code of ethics for your nonprofit or government organization. Use the course material and develop thoughtful, critically sound ethical guidelines that you have discussed, and in your individual posts, explain why you developed these guidelines. What were you trying to accomplish? What led you in your decision to shape these guidelines? Did you draw from past experiences or was it from reflecting on the course material, overall? Perhaps a bit of both? Be detailed not only in your ethical guidelines but also in your explanation of why (and how) you came to shape your guidelines. Include an organization (mock or real) and explain why your guidelines are a good match for that organization.

Here are some references!

5) Which of the websites (comment on one provided, or feel free to find a non-profit website not on the list) do you feel does the best job at motivating others to practice compassion? Why?

6) What role can you have in spreading compassion to others?

1)

1) I thought Daniel Goleman’s TED Talk about compassion was super interesting. I liked his anecdote about the Princeton students. I found it very telling that half of them had just read about helping a sick man on the street, yet all of them walked past a sick man on the way to their sermons yet many did not stop to help. It only mattered if people felt they were in a hurry, not if they consciously knew what was right or wrong. I agree with Daniel when he says we do not take every opportunity to help others because our focus is in the wrong direction and we are overly consumed with what is important in our own lives. He explains that human’s default wiring is to help, which I found really interesting because I did not know this before. I think it was really interesting that he explains all the reasons we do not help in many cases, in regards to our own self-absorption. I definitely agree that people are so wrapped up in themselves and their own struggles they forget to empathize and share compassion for other people’s issues. Oftentimes giving to others makes us feel good which in itself is just helping ourselves and is not rooted in wanting to help the lives of others. I really liked how he talked about dating and how it’s important to note when people ask about “you” rather than just speaking about themselves. Overall, I found this TED Talk very interesting and it really opened my eyes about compassion and helping others. I thought that Daniel Goleman made many great points and this was very insightful.

2)I think humans are inherently designed to help others and be compassionate. Even Daniel Goleman stated that humans default wiring is to help. I believe humans are caring and compassionate creatures and the goal in our life is measured by how we positively impact others. Some may argue that humans are inherently selfish, but I do not think that is necessarily true. When looking into mirror neurons I found that they are neurons that show our brain learns from imitation. Meaning the actions we observe and see around us we learn and in turn, end up mirroring. This is important when thinking about whether humans are designed to be compassionate. If we observe others helping others we are more likely to display that kind of behavior. In contrast, when we see selfishness we may be more inclined to act that way, which is why people may argue that people are selfish. When I thought about this deeper I also thought about how mirror neurons can help facilitate our feelings of empathy or compassion. We learn by imitation so if we see someone sad or injured these neurons can help us understand what those are feeling and make us feel more compassionate.

3) I think some cultures are more compassionate than others. I thought back to when we learned about individualist versus collectivist cultures and the different aspects of those. I would argue that collectivist cultures would be more compassionate because the culture revolves around the greater good of all people, not just oneself or immediate family. People tend to care for those in their extended families and are more concerned with the well-being of others within collectivist cultures making them generally a more compassionate culture. I think this is just the way the cultures function and also how the people a part of the cultures learn to act. In individualistic cultures, people may inherit skills or learn to look out for themselves before others and in collectivist cultures, people may tend to care more about others than themselves. An example I can think of is in Korean cultures people tend to take care of their parents for their whole life and the elderly live in the home with the rest of the family. I believe this shows a great deal of compassion and caring because they take care of their sick or elderly family. In places like America often the elderly are sent to homes to be looked after by others. This is an action that is not necessarily uncompassionate but shows less care and empathy than taking care of them yourself like in Korea cultures.

4) I think self-compassion is very important and something I strive to improve on. Sometimes I think I am too hard on myself and hold myself to too high expectations or standards. I think school is a place where I tend to try very hard and get disappointed with myself when I do not succeed in everything. I would like to start being less hard on myself in that regard and just remember that it is okay to not get good grades on every single assignment. I want to start setting realistic goals and not beat myself up when I do not succeed at everything. It is important to cut yourself slack at times and remember that you are trying your best. I will start to speak to myself nicer and work on giving the compassion I give to others to myself as well. It is important to be motivated and want to succeed but unrealistic expectations only allow me to feel let down.

5) I thought that the Reality Changers nonprofit personally did the best job at motivating others to practice compassion. I think even the name is so moving because you really are changing people’s lives and reality by helping first-generation college students go to school. As a college student myself this nonprofit really spoke to me. I like how they used photographs and gave the stories of people that their organization helps. I think they did a good job at motivating people to want to help.

6) I took a lot from the Ted Talk and a way I can spread compassion is by stepping out of my self-absorption and focusing on others. It is not that I can’t or don’t want to help others, it is just that I am so focused on myself I forget so many people out there need more help than me. I can start by learning and focusing on others’ issues rather than always being consumed by my own. I think simply realizing and shifting my focus off of myself is a great way to start spreading compassion to others.

Ruby,

I really appreciated your answer to the last question. You mentioned that you want to focus on other’s issues rather than only your own. I relate to that a lot. It’s easy to be in my own head and depend on others to listen to me and be there for my needs without realizing that there are peers and friends around me that also want space to share and feel heard. I’m interested to seee how you grow and wish the best of luck to the both of us!

1. Daniel Goleman’s TED talk in my opinion was extremely eye opening and insightful on how compassion plays and does not play a role in our community. I thought he did an amazing job explaining and setting up his presentation through giving background, interviews, and stories through out the entirety of his talk. I found it interesting how he brought in the neurologist and how the human brain works regarding compassion which is linked to empathy. I found it crazy that I was just in Santa Cruz last weekend and had no idea that someone committed such brutal crimes. Knowing the information and how impactful compassion can be, it makes me more of aware of my actions and items that I buy or use. I believe and find it extremely useful for people to watch and be aware of this TED talk because the information and tools given can be used in everyone’s day to day life to help makes this world a better place.

2. My opinion on if people are born being compassionate is not black and white. I find it to be different in each person and vary to the degree of compassion each person holds. In my opinion and experience I see a link between empathy and compassion. If someone is empathetic towards their peers and community around them, I also see them as compassionate. I am extremely empathetic and try my hardest to be compassionate throughout my day to day life. Being aware and making an effort is something I think everyone has the choice to make, unfortunately not everyone does. I also believe that compassion is taught and comes from the way you grow up. If your parents teach you to care for others and be aware of their feelings then I think compassion will follow and be innate. This is because of our mirror neurons and when we observe our parents being compassionate we follow in their foot steps.

3. I find that their our specific cultures that are more compassionate than others. If others are more compassion in the culture then the off spring will observe such actions and follow in those ways. This is due to the mirror neurons in our brain. In a collectivist society, there tends to be more compassion because the individuals in such community are more focused on the groups goals rather then their own. Ecuador and Peru are two examples of cultures that are seen to be most compassionate. They are more focused on empathy and other people’s feelings and wants. This is a beautiful things that I believe everyone needs to be more aware of.

4. There are many steps and things that I can do to work on self compassion. I need to be kind and warm to myself and stray away from my negative thoughts. When I fail or make a mistake I need to reword myself to see it as more of a learning obstacle rather than failure. I need to be aware of my pain and address it rather than barring it and ignoring my true feelings. If I ignore my suffering it will develop deeper and grow into a bigger problem. I need to work on connecting the love I have for myself with my thoughts and actions I have towards myself.

5. Spreading Compassion from the Inner to Outer World I feel does the best job at motivating others to practice compassion. I feel this way because, for starters, it does an amazing job at splitting up and expanding compassion. It then follows with steps and actions people can take to work on compassion and empathy towards others. Finally it’s shows the effects it has on individuals. It is a perfect way to start people’s journeys on being more compassionate in the real world.

6. The most effect way I can spread compassion is also the simplest. I can be more aware of my actions and the way they make the people around me feel. I can also talk to my family and friends and be a role model or teacher of compassion in their life. I can show them the benefits it has on society and how impactful it truly can be!

Hi Olivia,

I also agree that this tedtalk was very eye opening and comforting to hear. Some times I think I am being dramatic when I react the way I do to certain instances that happen around me but I don’t have to put up with some things in life that I do. I also think spending compassion will draw more compassion to you. Nice post!

3)

1) I enjoyed the Ted Talk. I especially liked the bit about the sermon and the good samaritan. Even though they were going to give lessons about that exact story, they didn’t stop to apply it, proving that their conviction about the lesson was not that deep.

2) I think humans are inherently designed to be compassionate. I think we want to assume that we are often selfish and self seeking, but I think most of the time we are aware of instances that we could help. A lot of people choose to ignore that or they weigh the value and reward of something before doing it. The definition of mirror neurons are brain cells that reacts both when a particular action is performed. This means that when we see something we are inclined to imitate it. Therefore if we see acts of compassion and kindness we want to imitate them. The fact that we have an inkling to imitate certain acts etc, even specific acts of compassion leads me to believe we are inherently compassionate. The fact that we want to imitate these actions, even if it is subconscious proves that it is nurture and nature.

3) I would say collectivist cultures are more compassionate. Knowing what we know from recent material, individualist cultures are often focused on themselves and are more motivated to do what benefits them. Compassion is about being outwardly focused and working for the greater good. It’s less about self and more about those around you. For example, according to an article psychology today, Ecuador is the number one most empathetic country, and is also a collectivist country.

4) In order to practice self compassion, I need to see myself as my own friend. We always talk about treating others the way we want to be treated, but hardly think about, “wait how do I actually want to be treated.” The way others treat us, starts by treating ourselves with respect. I can do this by being kinder to myself. Treating myself to experiences that I want and maintaining gratitude and positivity. This will help me have an optimistic outlook on life and resort less to taking out any anger or negativity with myself.

5) I think compassionit.com does the best job of motivating others to have compassion. Other than the fact that it’s the name, the website emphasizes that this is something that we all need to work on. On the front page it states, “Let’s create a more compassionate world. Together.” This motivates website visitors to analyze their compassion, but without feeling attacked or guilty. Other websites attached like acumen.org seem practical, but upon the website are more logics and marketing based, rather than getting to the heart aspect.

6) In order to spread compassion to others, I want to be more proactive in my community. I think I’m already past the part of watching videos online and donating, but I want to experience some of the community and through that be able to create sustainable change. Last week, my friends and I wrote cards for a senior center and plan on having them delivered at Christmas. We are still in the process of getting more service acts achieved, but it felt good to do something practical and put ourselves in the mindset of the elderly that do have a hard time during the holdiays.

Hi Amanda,

I also talked about how collectivist cultures tend to be more compassionate compared to individualist cultures. I thought it was cool that we both had that idea based on the previous material in this course. I also really liked how you talked about wanting to be kinder to yourself because I think that is something we should all improve on. Overall, I enjoyed reading your response, and thanks for sharing!

IMPORTANT: Read through the following information, and then answer all questions in a single document that you will upload using the link below the activity information.


Introduction

Humans, along with familiar species such as orangutans, gorillas, lemurs, baboons, and chimpanzees, are primates. Among living primates, modern humans are most closely related to chimpanzees. The two species shared a common ancestor that lived about 6–7 million years ago. One of the traits that distinguish humans from all other primates, including chimpanzees, is the way we walk. Chimpanzees are primarily quadrupedal, which means that they walk on four limbs. Chimpanzees move with their hands turned under so that their knuckles make contact with the ground, which is why they are also described as knuckle-walkers. Humans, on the other hand, are bipedal, meaning that we walk on two legs.

We walk with our feet close together and directly underneath our hips, enabling us to balance on one leg while the other leg swings forward. Chimpanzees can walk on two legs only for short distances. Because their feet are not directly under their hips, they sway side to side to help maintain balance when walking on two legs.

Because humans are the only primate to walk on two legs, bipedality most likely evolved in the lineage that led to humans. But when during human ancestry did this human trait first evolve? This activity will help answer that question. In Part 1, you will make observations and inferences from a portion of the Laetoli trackway, a trail of footprints that were made in what is now East Africa about 3.6 million years ago! In Part 3, you will compare human feet and chimpanzee feet to the footprints in the Laetoli trackway, to determine whether those footprints were more human-like or chimp-like. Lastly, in Part 3, you will analyze a published scientific figure from a research study that used footprints formed millions of years ago to estimate the heights of early human ancestors.


Part 1: Laetoli Trackway

Laetoli, in northern Tanzania, is a paleontological site made famous in the 1970s when Mary Leakey and her colleagues discovered the tracks of three bipedal hominin individuals (G1, G2, and G3) dating back 3.66 million years (see Fig. 12.1 below). Unlike the fossils of bones, which are referred to simply as fossils, fossil footprints are referred to as trace fossils. They provide indirect evidence of past life, or evidence of organismal behavior.

Fossils of Australopithecus afarensis, the same species as the famous “Lucy” fossil, have been found near the Laetoli footprints. The genus Australopithecus is a member of the clade Homininae, which includes modern humans and their extinct ancestors. The prevailing hypothesis is that A. afarensis made the footprints at Laetoli. That is what we will test today.

Take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the image of a small portion of the Laetoli trackway below. You can also download a high-resolution version download of the image for closer examination.

foot-topo-10inch.jpg

Figure 12.1 Photogrammetric plan of the footprints in the southern part of the Laetoli trackway.

There are two sets of prints in the trackway; one set is labeled G.1 and the other G.2/3. In each footprint, the outermost lines outline the size of the foot and each line within represents 1 millimeter of additional depth. The more lines there are encircling an area, the deeper that part of the footprint was in the ash.

Question 1. What do you observe about the footprints?

a. Is the big toe pointed in the same direction as the stride?

b. Where was most of the weight placed?

Question 2. What can you infer from your observations? For each of the questions below, list the observations and inferences.

a. How many individuals were walking?

Observation:

Inference:

b. What were their relative sizes—that is, how big were they compared with one another?

Observation:

Inference:

c. Were they walking together at the same time?

Compare the Laetoli trackway to the two images below of modern human footprints. The images are followed by a link to a very short video of footprints being made in wet sand by a modern human.

Modern Footprints.jpg

Figure 12.2 Modern human footprints in wet sand.

Couple Walks Barefoot on Beach (Links to an external site.) (link to Youtube video)

Question 3. What characteristics do the modern and fossil footprints have in common? How are they structurally different from each other?

Part 2. Chimpanzee and Human Footprint Comparison

There are many differences between chimpanzee footprints and human footprints. Chimpanzees and other nonhuman primates, like gorillas, have feet that are specialized for climbing, not walking. As stated earlier, chimps are quadrupedal, although they can walk on two feet for short distances.

As a class, watch the short video by clicking the link below, and then examine the images comparing the feet of chimps and humans. Use the information in the video and images to help answer the questions that follow.

Figure 12.3 Comparison of foot characteristics of chimpanzees and modern humans.

Question 4. Using information from the video and the figure above (Fig. 12.3), did the individuals who made the Laetoli footprints millions of years ago have feet more like a human or a chimpanzee? Did they walk more like a human or a chimpanzee? Provide evidence to support your claims.
Question 5. Do you agree or disagree with this statement: “It is possible to determine when bipedalism evolved by looking only at the Laetoli footprint.” Explain your answer.

Part 3. New Laetoli Footprints and Hominin Body Size

In 2015, scientists were excavating a site in Laetoli when they uncovered two new sets of hominin tracks (S1 and S2) located about 150 meters south of the tracks found by Leakey. These tracks are on the same surface, dated to the same time period, and oriented in the same direction as the Leakey tracks. Using previously established formulas, they inferred the body mass, stature, and walking speed of the two individuals using the size and shape of the footprints. There is some debate about the variability in body size between hominin individuals. Some paleobiologists hypothesize that as hominins increased in stature, they became better equipped to disperse from Africa to other parts of the world. We will refer to this as the “Dispersal Hypothesis”. Such a hypothesis would be supported by evidence showing a linear progression of increasing hominin stature over time. Other biologists hypothesize that variability in hominin stature is linked to sexual dimorphism or adaptation to different environments. We will refer to this as the “Dimorphism Hypothesis“. For example, in species in which males are expected to compete with each other for a chance to mate with females, there is often a large size difference between males and females, called sexual dimorphism. (We see this in living non-human great apes, such as orangutans and gorillas.) Such a hypothesis would be supported by evidence showing large variations in stature between individuals of the same species.

Examine the figure in the handout entitled

  • What trends do you notice in the data?
  • How would you describe variations in hominin stature over time?
  • Which hypothesis described above are best supported by these data? (You will be including this answer in your submission for this activity.)
  • Would your answer to the previous question have been different before specimens S1 and S2 were added to the graph? Use evidence from the graph to justify your answer.
  • What do the trends in the data indicate about the social behavior of early hominins?
  • Is there a relationship between the number of data points in a time period and the range of stature
    measurements? How does this affect how you interpret the data?
  • Each data point contains a lot of information (color, shape, filled/open, date, stature). Why do you think
    the scientists included so much data in each point? Which piece or pieces of information do you think are the most critical?
Question 6. Which hypothesis discussed above (“Dispersal” vs. “Dimorphism”) do the data support? Provide evidence from the graph.
