Discussion Primer & Zoom Report (FAML 430)Name: Violet Quick Week 02 Primer: Theoretical Perspectives 1.Nuggets: Sharefourbig ideas, favorite quotes, or key ideas for your study of the material this week. a."No society can long sustain itself unless its members have learned the sensitivities, motivations, and skills involved in assisting and caring for other human beings." - Urie Bronfenbrenner b."it takes a village" c.Not all cultures socialize the same, and the best way to bridge the gap between two cultures of high and low context is relationships d.We all want a sense of belonging and to be apart ofcommunity 2.Nuggets: Sharefourprinciples, seeming truths, or like unto us statements following an "if- then" format. (Example:Ifwe give children choices,thenthey will be personally invested in their choice, motivated in their action, and take responsibility for their behavior. Responsible children are given choices.) a.If as a society we put value in assisting and caring for other human beings... , then... we will be able to sustain a healthy and long lived society b.If we help children and offer support to them ... , then... we will give be able to best help them as they become an adult in society c.If a community is supportive during difficult situations... , then... the members in their community will have a sense of belonging d.If parents do not support their child and their education... , then... it will be more difficult for that child to want to further their education 3.Nuggets: Share two challenges to, or elaborations of, the material you studied this week following a "but" or "however" format . (Example:But, the choices we give children must be developmentally, experientially, and culturally appropriate for the unique context of each child.) a.But, we cannot choose how others act, so we cannot know that a child given all the ideal ways to be brought up in society will choose to reciprocate and make good decisions and be an acceptable member of society. b.But, how can we observe in a hands on experiment to test his theory? 4.How does Bronfenbrenner's Bioecological Systems Theory capture the contributions and interactions between of nature and nurture? What are the key concepts to understanding the theory? Bronfenbrenner's theory basically says that nature and nurture are too connected to be judged separately. There are different situations that happen, proximal processes, part of a dynamic system constantly influencing each other. The key concepts to understanding his theory is that there are lots of different influences in a person's life and that is more of the reason behind why someone makes the choices they do. Nature and nurture are both in the ecological system. 5.In Bronfenbrenner's bioecological model, what is the difference between the exosystem and the macrosystem? The exosystem is the fourth system in his model, it is the interactions between the environments influence on the individual. And the macrosystem is the fifth system in his model, which is about the very large cultural and societal contexts. For example, the values in the LDS church or the culture in the south.

6.According to the McMillan and Chavis article, Sense of Community: A Definition and Theory, what are four specific things that you could do to foster a deeper sense of community in yourself or others? Membership, influence, integration and fulfillment of need, and shared emotional responses. 7.Attach (add) your Personal Ecological Assessment to this primer.During your weekly Zoom, you'll use the assessment to share examples of biological characteristics and environmental systems that have interacted to shape your socialization. 8.Reflect upon the questions below and make any notes that will help add to your Zoom discussion this week. You need not address all the questions but write a response to the three most important to you. a.Considering the chronosystem changes over generations or larger macro-time periods, how has the socialization of children changed? Have we lengthened childhood or shortened it? How was your childhood different from you grandparents? I think that the socialization of childhood had changed completely. Social media and technology have altered childhoods in a significant way. My grandparents would stay outside for hours every day playing with kids in the neighborhood as well as probably walking to stores and out to eat by themselves. Kids today do not do that. I think childhood has been shortened now because children are exposed to so many things so young because of the internet. Like porn. b.Can a shared history or value without lots of personal contact still result in a sense of community? I think it can because in church we might not always know the people around us but we know our churches history and we know our values and that makes us still feel like a community. c.What role does a crisis or shared "salient" purpose play in creating a sense of community? How do shared symbols contribute to a sense of community. Consider the title of liberty, or gang colors. I think it can play a big role because a traumatic experience or a crisis bonds people together, because they all went through the same experience that was very difficult and they can rely on each other to get through it together. d.To create the "in-group," or cohesive community, do you really have to have an "out- group" that doesn't have membership? Is there danger in being too inclusive or permeable with your community boundaries? e.How does a community control its membership and identity? What pressures to conform might the Amish who buy a car, or the Latter-Day Saint who drinks alcohol and cohabits feel from their communities? Note:Submit the draft of this Discussion Primer & Zoom ReportBEFOREyour team's Zoom meeting. After the meeting submit it again with any elaboration you have added and a report of the items below. AFTER ZOOM MEETING 1.What was your assigned role in the Zoom meeting today? How did you contribute in your BYU-Idaho2FAML 430
role and as an engaged citizen to the success of your learning community? Preacher, I opened the meeting with a prayer and shared a gospel message. I also shared throughout the discussion how our reading and preparations are similar to the Lord's gospel. I shared the scripture Moses 7:18 and a quote from President Nelson. 2.Were you prepared in advance of the meeting by 1) reading the assigned material, 2) watching the assigned videos, and 3) addressing the Primer and Zoom Report items individually first---so you can collectively dig deeper as informed and prepared team members? Please explain if you can't answer "yes" to each of the three items above. Yes, to all 3, I was very prepared. 3.Once completed, please submit the final version of your personal "Discussion Primer & Zoom Report" on I-Learn as the conclusion to this activity. BYU-Idaho3FAML 430Note:While you can certainly add to this worksheet and report during your weekly Zoom meeting as you discuss the concepts with your learning community, please don't come to the meeting uninformed, unprepared, and without initial ideas to contribute to the discussion items above. Going deeper as a team requires that you first study and prepare as individuals. Please think of this worksheet as your notes, or a study guide for the upcoming exam.
