From researching this career, I have found out how much communication skills and interaction skills are essential. Teachers have to have good interpersonal skills as well as patience and a passion for children and teaching.

I received a good insight of my chosen career and learned what skills are needed to become a secondary school teacher in the future ahead of me. I enjoyed researching up my future career on the internet which improved my I.T skills and also researched it by communicating different people who speacialized in this section including my teachers, this also improved my interpersonal skills. I got some sources which provided me with irrelevant information but I took it all in just in case I might need it later on in my investigation. Overall I would like to pursue this following career in the future.


Summary Report

MOG Car Safety Demonstration

(by Eanna Sullivan)

Title: This is a Link module Summary Report on a school visit in from Michael Gleeson the programme co-ordinator of MOG Car Safety.
Author: Eanna Sullivan
Terms of Reference: This report has been written as part of our Link Modules core items, on a visit in by an entrepreneur providing an educational and informative service for young people about car safety.
1. We hoped to develop our enterprise skills and learn about setting up a business. 2. We hoped to develop our teamwork skills, our communication and research skills by participating in the presentation activities. 3. We hoped to learn about car safety.
Overview of the visit:
MOG Car Safety MOG Car Safety was set up by Michael Gleeson and Michael O’Gorman in 20--. Michael O’Gorman of O’Gorman Motors, Newtown Co. Tipperary invented the MOG Car which his programme co-ordinator Michael Gleeson now uses to educate young people about car safety.

Introduction to the visit: The programme co-ordinator Michael Gleeson begins by introducing himself and his service. He then gave us an overview of what the presentation would entail. He also got to know us all by having us introduce ourselves.

The Presentation: The presentation itself was very interesting and informative. I got a fantastic understanding of car safety and the workings of a car because of the use of the MOG Car.

Mr Gleeson got some of the students to sit in the MOG Car and through them he showed us how to behave in a car and what possible problems may arise. He showed us the inner workings of the car and engine and told us about real life road accidents and the dangers of drink driving and lack of responsibility. He outlined various facts and figures regarding road causalities and the aftermaths of car crashes. This was very hard to listen to, but also it needed to be communicated to us. A lot of the group have in the past been guilty of ‘doughnuts’, not wearing seatbelts etc. This seminar has changed our attitudes now, and our behaviours going forward.

End of Tour: We finished our tour with a question and answer session. We also thanked Mr Gleeson for coming to our school and giving us such an important life lesson.
1. Collectively we enjoyed this visit in where all our aims were achieved

2. We learned about entrepreneurship from an actual entrepreneur.

3. We learned about Car Safety. We can now apply what we learned in everyday situations.

4. I participated in the question and answer session, which I feel helped me with my interpersonal and communication skills. Through the devise of my report I have improved upon and gained in my IT skills.

I found the visit in an excellent opportunity to visually learn about car safety and an enterprise. This visual aspect to the visit in facilitated my learning an understanding of an enterprise. I now have applied to undertake my theory for my driving test. This activity has greatly helped me in the preparation for this.

|Analysis of Personal Performance: | |
|Description of Work: |On my first day I was given a tour of the premises by the Manager. I was then taken |
| |to the surgery room and reception and given an in-depth tour and induction in both |
| |these areas. I was told I would be responsible for cleaning, serving and replenishing|
| |while on my work experience. |
| | |
| |I was given 2 hours training in the surgery specifically in hygiene and safety |
| |precautions and what procedures I must follow in relation to both these areas. I |
|Training: |received training on handling animals and working with them safely, how to sterilize |
| |utensils, proper conduct and manners and what was acceptable and not. |
| | |
|Skills used: |During my first day I used my communication skills when getting to know the various |
| |people I would be working with. I also used my organisational skills when |
| |reorganising utensils. |
| | |
| |I received a concrete example of how the Health and Safety at work act is implemented |
| |in a real life example which helped to reinforce the Act to me. I learned a lot about|
|Learning: |etiquette in the workplace which is somewhat different from my school environment. |
| | |
|Evidence of analysis: |I felt very nervous on my first day; I found meeting a lot of new, more mature people |
| |very daunting. In the afternoon I began to relax and I found I was able to do my |
| |tasks more easily and I could listen that bit better. My supervisor complemented me |
| |on my performance which helped greatly. I forgot to bring a jotter with me to take |
| |notes which would have helped me when we were going through legislation and |
| |procedures. |

| | |
|Description of Work: |On my second day I began in the surgery, watching various procedures and sterilizing |
| |utensils and cleaning the area. |
| | |
| |I received an overview on safety and procedures in taking orders before I commenced my|
|Training: |restaurant duties. In the afternoon I received training on the tills. |
| | |
|Skills used: |During my second day I again used my communication while working in the restaurant |
| |under the “greet and meet” procedures in the hotel. I used my administrative skills |
| |when taking orders and my IT skills when training and working on the tills |
| | |
| |Today I learned how to work at reception; I used communication and interpersonal |
|Learning: |skills and dealt with many customers and inquirers. |
| | |
|Evidence of analysis: |Today I observed how much more relaxed I was, I found the practical tasks more |
| |exciting than the previous day using my communicational skills to work with customers.|

|Description of Work: |On my fourth day I began in the surgery and watched more operations. I learnt the |
| |steps and procedures involved in spaying and neutering cats and dogs. |
| | |
|Training: | |
|Skills used: |During my second day I again used my communicational skills while I used my |
| |administrative skills when taking orders and improving my IT skills while training |
| |and working at reception. |
| | |
| |Today I learned how to work more with people. The staff were very friendly as were |
|Learning: |customers. I noticed that I was being trusted more to work on my own initiative |
| |today and was asked to do errands up town. Whilst working in the surgery, I was |
| |instructed to sterilize more utensils and wash up while taking hygiene precautions. |
|Evaluation: |In reflection, I enjoyed my work experience and loved the people aspect of it. |
| |Nonetheless I do not think I am suited to the veterinary career on a full time |
| |basis. My heart lies in caring for and helping people who are disadvantaged, while |
| |using the skills and qualities I acquired while on my work experience. The |
| |experience has taught me the importance of hygiene, sterilization, good people |
| |skills, and care when handling animals. |
| | |
|Application |To date I have applied the knowledge I learned during my work experience in the |
| |following ways: |
| | |
| |Both at home and in school, I have adopted a strict policy on cleanliness. I am |
| |more calm and understanding towards people, listening more and thinking more before |
| |I speak and react. In terms of the community, I am also more proactive towards |
| |people and situations rather than being reactive. I intend to offer my services to |
| |the local school and day care centre on a voluntary basis. |

Sullivan vs. Cook

...1. What did the defendants do with their land that the plaintiffs considered “unreasonable and substanstial? The defendants, John and Diane Sullivan & A. purchased some neighboring land in the area where the Plaintiffs reside. Upon purchase the defendants obtained a building plan by a certified wetland scientist for the construction of a septic system for their modular home that was to be placed on their property. The defendants had used large amounts of fill in the area they were building the house. As a result the neigboring plaintiffs began to complain of “standing water accumulatting in their garage, underneath the chalet, and the water prevented them from enjoying and using their property like they had in previous years.” (Janice J. Cook,” 2003). They complained that the wetness was a recurring issue that they dealt with over a course of a few years. After an attempt to remedy the issue did not suffice, the plaintiffs filed a petition 2000 for assistance in the matter from the court stating that this created a nuisance. How does the court decide whether or not a use of land is unreasonable? The law of tort on private nuisance “is referred to any unlawful interference with a person's use or enjoyment of land or some right over or in connection with it...” (The social sciences, 2011) If there is an interference which causes a person to not enjoy their property this could uprise problems the court would evaluate both sides of the situation by “balancing the......

Key Developments in Secondary Education in Ireland Between 1922 and 1967.

...Colleges  Decision taken in 1926 to open 7 Preparatory Colleges to supply national teachers with fluent Irish.  Competitive exams…ensured entry to the training colleges.  General consensus is that the ‘experiment’ was effective as they produced hundreds of national teachers with fluent Irish. INTO critical on educational grounds.  Prep. Colleges closed in 1962 The colleges proved to be a big success but the serious decline in Irish people learning Irish is evident from the closure of the schools in 1962. The seven schools were as follows:  Colaiste Chaoimhin, Dublin. (7-8 years)  Colaiste Ide, Dingle.  Colaiste Iosagain, Ballyvourney.  Col. Bhride, Falcarragh, Donegal.  Col Mhuire, Tourmakedy, Co. Mayo.  Col. Eanna, Gaillimh  Col Moibhi, Dublin; Church of Ireland managed. Closed in 1994 (?). Higher and Lower courses were introduced in the early 1930’s for several subjects and mark allotments varied between grades and subjects. It is interesting to note that there is still the same structure in the Leaving Certificate today with the option for students to take the Honours and Pass papers and also in relation to Maths, Irish and English there is an option to take the Foundation paper in the aforementioned papers. Following 1924 a number of scholarships, which lasted for two years, were awarded by the state on the results of the Intermediate Certificate. In 1929 there was an amendment to the scheme which saw an increase of the number of......

Functionalism-Sullivan, Lecorbusier the defining principle which in its simplest form states that a building or structure should be derived solely from the function it is intended to fulfill. Employed by pioneering modernist architects including Louis Sullivan and Le Corbusier, functionalism, stood alone as the cornerstone of their definitions of honest, pure, and beautiful structure. In Louis Sullivan's 'Kindergarten Chats and Other Writings' he exposes the true inter-correlations at work between function and form (structure): "I suppose if we call a building a form, then there should be a function, a purpose, a reason for each building, a definite explainable relation between the form, the development of each building, and the causes that bring it into that particular shape; and that the building, to be good architecture, must, first of all, clearly correspond with its function, must be its image as you would say." Functionalism as an architectural principle can be traced back as far to the Vetruvian principles of Greek and Roman structure. For Louis Sullivan as well as Le Corbusier form was a mere manifestation of functional principles including the practical considerations of use, material, and structure and not by a preconceived picture in the designer's mind. Born in 1856 Louis Sullivan, deemed by some to be the "father of modern architecture," is credited with the creation of a wide variety of structural masterpieces all of which subscribe to his archetypal description and notion that "form ever......

Messa V. Sullivan Court of Appeals, 1965. 61 Ill.App.2d 386, 209 N.E.2d 872

...Handout #2 Brief Training Materials for Fall 2012 Messa v. Sullivan Court of Appeals, 1965. 61 Ill.App.2d 386, 209 N.E.2d 872. BURMAN, PRESIDING JUSTICE. Betty Messa brought this action against James Sullivan, Helen Sullivan and the Keyman's Club, an Illinois not for profit corporation, to recover damages for the bodily injuries which she sustained as the result of being bitten by the defendants' dog. The complaint was based on two theories: first, a common law action for the keeping of a vicious animal and, second, an action based on what is commonly known as the "Dog Bite Statute" (Ill.Rev.Stat.l963, ch. 8, § 12d). The parties waived a jury and the case was tried by the court. On the common law count, the trial court held for the defendants because he found that the plaintiff was contributorily negligent. No appeal has been taken from the judgment entered on that issue. On the statutory count, however, the court concluded that the plaintiff should recover and therefore he entered judgment awarding the plaintiff damages only against James Sullivan and the Keyman's Club in the amount of $3,000. From this judgment these two defendants appeal. They contend that the plaintiff failed to prove, as she was required to prove in order to recover under the statute, that she was lawfully on the defendants' premises and that she did not provoke the dog to attack. Alternatively the defendants contend that...

The Characters of Gilbert & Sullivan: Real or Fiction

...Cathy Caligiuri ENG 498: Senior Seminar Dr. Alanna Preussner Gilbert & Sullivan Research Paper 5 March 2013 The characters of Gilbert and Sullivan: Real or Fiction? Who inspired some of the famous, and infamous, characters of Gilbert and Sullivan? Although we will never know the exact answer to this question, it is one that has been very highly contemplated, and argued over, for some time. The characters that are most argued over would be Reginald Bunthorne and his rival, Archibald Grosvenor. There have been many speculations about which poets of the time were the inspiration for the characters, but the most likely candidates would have to be Algernon Swinburne, Oscar Wilde, Robert Buchanan, Dante Rossetti, Coventry Patmore, and W. S. Gilbert himself. To begin, the character of Bunthorne has a base mostly in Wilde, Rossetti, and Swinburne. There is plenty of sufficient evidence for any one of these poets to be the primary influence for Bunthorne. At the time Patience was being debuted, Oscar Wilde was just beginning to emerge into society as a well known artist. He began to strut around town in some rather outlandish outfits and was becoming known for his crazy ways. Similarly to Wilde, Bunthorne is described as the “fleshly poet” of the play, and there have been many renditions of the play where Bunthorne is portrayed to look like Wilde was often described as dressing. He would wear velvet knee pants, and would often be carrying a flower of some kind......

Cook vs. Sullivan

...1) What did the defendants do with their land that the plaintiff’s considered “unreasonable and substantial”? Since 1947, the cook family have living near Lake Winnipesauke in Moultonboro NH. In 1996, the defendants, John and Diane Sullivan bought property near the Cook family residence. They decided to construct their home on a piece of wetland, but before they could, the area needed to be back filled, the elevation was then raised and then their home was place. Shortly after, the plaintiff’s, the Cook family, realized their yard, garage and lower level of their house was flooding every spring and summer. They confronted the Sullivan’s, who proceeded to try several remedies for the situation including removing some of the fill and digging a drainage ditch. Yet, when those remedies did not work, the Cook’s decided to sue the Sullivan’s for nuisance. 2) How does the court decide whether or not a use of land is unreasonable? What kind of thinking process does the court go through? The trial court rules in favor of the plaintiff’s, stating “the defendants’ construction activities constituted as a nuisance that damaged the plaintiff’s property” (O. Lee Reed, 2013) The trial court proceeded to order the defendants removal of fill and foundation, thus resulting in the removal of their house and pushed back about 40 feet. During this trail, the court took time looking at both sides of the story, using the balance test to determine the gravity of harm to both the......

New York Times vs. Sullivan

...Reflections RES/351 University of Phoenix Reflections Our goal for week three was differentiating and understanding the difference between qualitative and quantitative methods of research. We reviewed the most common used research designs, both qualitative and quantitative; in addition to selecting the appropriate type of research design in a given business situation. Qualitative research typically has analysis of few subjects for which a set of data is organized and collected. When performing qualitative research, the most commonly used types are through data analysis and data gathering. By putting the components together in sequence, data gathering can help a researcher place all the pieces to formulate a path to the problem that needs resolving. Data analysis can help a researcher put together all the information collected, design patterns and different answers to the problems that are in question. The quantitative method of research mainly uses research groups to test a hypothesis and get more control over the research performed. The design calls for finding participants for the research and using instrumentation to collect data. By using both forms in the designs, researchers can create their own ways to solve the problems and gather other aspects of it by asking their questions and getting answers that meet the requirements of those questions. Quantitative research involves the proper application of statistics to a large number of subjects.......

Sullivan makes the case for the psychoanalysis of literary characters. While there is much to ponder in Sullivan's essay, there are two points, both involving dualisms, that I would like to discuss. In the first case, Sullivan argues insightfully and convincingly against an absolute distinction between how we know and think about fictional characters and how we know and think about real people. In the second case, however, Sullivan insists on an absolute (Cartesian) mind-body dualism as a cornerstone of psychoanalytic theory. I would like to repeat and extend Sullivan's argument in the first case, but refute it and deny its validity in the second. First dualism: Fact/Fiction Sullivan cites as representative of a certain widely-shared approach Maud Ellmann's insistence that there is an important distinction between a “human being made of flesh and character made of words” (5), a distinction that allows us to make one kind statement about the former but not the latter. Ellmann is not alone in making the real-life/fictional distinction a fundamental matter of ontology. We are all familiar with arguments like hers, having heard * For a response to this response, see “Don Quixote & the ‘Third Term’ as Solvent of Binary Dualisms: A Response to Howard Mancing”, by Henry W. Sullivan, Cervantes 19.1......

Summary of "For Gay Marriage"

...Summary of “For Gay Marriage” In his essay “For Gay Marriage,” Andrew Sullivan argues that marriage isn’t and has never been, in his view just a “private contract” between two people, and that now marriage is seen as a social and public recognition of such a commitment (404). Sullivan argues that to refuse homosexuals the right to marry is a public offense to their rights and equality as citizens. Sullivan makes the case in his essay that homosexual couples deserve the same rights, the right to marry, because they are just as capable of fulfilling the requirements of marriage as heterosexuals. Throughout his essay Sullivan argues that marriage should be allowed between any two people. He explains that marriage can no longer just be defined in the narrow sense as between a man and a woman, rather it has to be viewed in a broader perspective as it is an “emotional, financial, and psychological bond between two people”, who are consenting adults who are not closely related to one another (404). Sullivan makes the argument that marriage should not be denied to same sex couples because marriage is no longer viewed in our society as being for the sole function of procreation. It no longer matters if a couple has children or not, so why should whether or not a couple can have children be a stipulation that keeps the right to marry from homosexual couples. Sullivan finally asserts that marriage is an emotional commitment by two people for life, and that it requires sacrifice,......

Pragmatism and Transactional Bodies

...Moving onwards from the instrumentalist components of Dewey’s pragmatism, Shannon Sullivan uses this excerpt to support her case for the positive potential of pragmatic though within our current society. Previously established through Dewey’s theory on an organism’s life existing within and “through” skin, Sullivan harnesses the acceptance of the “transaction” allowing all processes to occur as a means positive transformation. Through the boundaries of sex and race, Sullivan reveals the human individual as a body no longer bounded by absolute substance. Instead, we can find direction and freedom within the dynamic relationship of body and environment, and address the impact of the insurmountable activities of life “on people’s lived situations and experiences” (Sullivan 3). Acknowledgment of our transactional bodies formation by mutual constitution and categorization of the world comes with the examination of the “hidden assumptions and blind spots” that accompany a particular perspective, and ultimately, the potential of changed habit for achieving what Dewey previously defines as a Great community (Sullivan 4). By encouraging the collaboration and advantages of a transactional perspective of our own body, Sullivan wishes to free the boundaries of fixed habit and improve bodily existence through a blend of 20th Century pragmatism. Sullivan’s concern remains within the social, ethical, and epistemological implications of transactional bodies, encouraging the explanation...

During this time, The New York Times vs. Sullivan case changed the face of the news and the country’s understanding of the first amendment forever and in turn represents what most people today recognize as freedom of speech (Harrison, Harrison, Gilbert, &Gilbert, 1991-2006). In the spring of 1960, racial tension high and Americans of all races fighting for change. The New York Times published a full-page advertisement describing the abuse and mistreatment at the hands of the people who carry the expectation to protect and serve. The civil right activism that many Americans know from history books and television was just beginning.

Messa V Sullivan Citation

...Betty Messa brought this action against James Sullivan, Helen Sullivan and the Keyman's Club, an Illinois not for profit corporation, to recover damages for the bodily injuries which she sustained as the result of being bitten by the defendants' dog. The complaint was based on two theories: first, a common law action for the keeping of a vicious animal and, second, an action based on what is commonly known as the 'Dog Bite Statute' (Ill.Rev.Stat. 1963, ch. 8, § 12d). The parties waived a jury and the case was tried by the court. On the common law count, the trial court held for the defendants because he found that the plaintiff was contributorily negligent. No appeal has been taken from the judgment entered on that issue. On the statutory count, however, the court concluded that the plaintiff should recover and therefore he entered judgment awarding the plaintiff damages only against James Sullivan and the Keyman's Club in the amount of $3,000. From this judgment these two defendants appeal. They contend that the plaintiff failed to prove, as she was required to prove in order to recover under the statute, that she was lawfully present on the defendants' premises and that she did not provoke the dog to attack. Alternatively the defendants contend that the amount of the damage award is not supported by the evidence. The plaintiff suffered her injuries in the Keyman's Club building, 4721 West Madison Street in the City of Chicago. Located on the lower level and on the first......
