Do You Have A Negative Self-Concept?

Defining Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Within the Educational Setting
Early behaviorists concluded that the acquisition of knowledge was the same in all organisms. They hypothesized that one could study rats and understand how an organism learns. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), has proven this hypothesis wrong. FAS was first studied in 1973. It has since then been discovered to be the leading cause of mental deficits in the United States.

Incivility in Education
Students and faculty need to be empowered so they can construct a culture of respect and civility in and out of the classroom. Classroom incivility can be found in its many forms, but the largest area of concern by far is cell phone usage.
