Assignment: Body Image, Self-Esteem, and the Media

The relationship between media images of the ideal body and the self-esteem, body image, and susceptibility to eating disorders of today’s adolescents is an issue that has been heavily debated. Some people, for example, believe that fashion magazines featuring ultra-thin models cause teens to be more likely to develop poor body image, low self-esteem, and eating disorders, while others maintain that the causes of such problems are complex and cannot be attributed to photographs in magazines. Whatever the causes, experts agree that these issues are major concerns for many teens and for the professionals who work with them. As Dr. Sommers-Flanagan discusses in the video program, “Body Image and Self-Esteem in Adolescence,” anorexia, bulimia, and body dysmorphic disorder can threaten the long-term health and lives of adolescents. By empathizing with teens and being prepared to intervene when necessary, professionals can help teens break the cycle of destructive, unhealthy habits before they become life-long struggles. In this assignment, you will explore the relationships between media images and adolescent health, and consider how, as a professional, you might approach issues related to self-esteem, body image, and eating disorders with the young people with whom you work. Based on the Learning Resources and your own observations, write a 2- to 3-page paper OR create a 4- to 6-slide PowerPoint presentation that includes responses to the following questions. (Note: If you choose to create a .PPT presentation, you may use graphics, formatting, etc. as you see fit. However, in the “Notes” section, be sure to include text that indicates what you might say if you were delivering the presentation to a group of colleagues.)To what extent do you think media images affect the way teens feel about themselves—e.g. their self-esteem and body image? To what extent do you think it might make them more susceptible to eating disorders?Do you think that the media/entertainment industry has a responsibility to portray a variety of body types in ads, television shows, magazines, etc.? Why or why not?In what ways, if any, do you think body image, self-esteem, and/or eating habits might be a concern in your setting? As a professional in this setting, how might you address it? If you do not think you would, explain why.By Day 7

(physical, cognitive or psychosocial domains). and. write 1000 word 

the chosen domain are cognitive and psychosocial domains

Identify and discuss one (1) developmental characteristic of early childhood from each of the domains you

have chosen. This means you will discuss two characteristics. They will not be from the same domain.

Analyse how relevant theory can assist with our understanding of these two developmental characteristics that

you have chosen.

Discuss the different influences on the development of these characteristics using Bronfenbrenner’s ecological

systems theory.

Include a minimum of three (3) peer-reviewed articles and/or books. If you use reputable websites such as

those of universities, government, and non-government agencies, these should be in addition to your three (3) peer-reviewed sources because they are considered ’grey’ material.

Jamila has been working with her counselor on learning to better manage her 9-year-old son. Last night, her son was hit by a car and is in the hospital. This has created a number of problems:

  1. She has to arrange childcare for her daughter so she can stay with her son in the hospital. 
  2. He will need some special care when he gets home because he will be in a wheelchair.
  3. She is fearful that she will lose her job as a teacher’s aide in the local public school.
  1. What steps would you take in this session to make sure that Jamila has the resources she needs right now?

“Reformation and Transformation”  Please respond to the following:

  • Analyze the reasons for curricular reform in the past. Determine your position on curriculum reform in respect to the Common Core Standards for your grade level. Provide support for your position.
  • Analyze two ways that the democratic imperative can influence a school. Determine whether or not this will improve a school’s ability to become a more effective learning organization

Peer Response

  In the past curricular reform was needed to reach students that could not comprehend and read on grade level which affected their ability to learn other subjects. Also, some teachers were thought of as being illiterate such as the students. The reform was to strength students abilities. As well as teachers knowledge, abilities and training to be able to give students the necessary material needed to be productive. My position as it refers to the curriculum reform for kindergarten students is to ensure measures are in place during the foundation grade level so that students do not fall behind that are deemed illiterate. Intense intervention measures should be put in place for these students the intervention will work towards making sure an individual can read and comprehend before the promotion to the next grade level. My position is similar to the past reform plan. Students need more interventions in place geared to assisting in areas of weaknesses in education. Teachers should have the proper training to identify a student with learning struggles and create an intervention plan to work towards improving students skills.         The democratic imperative can influence the school in many ways. Two ways that it influence a school is in the long-term, it helps develop well-informed citizens who work toward creating a democratic, vibrant, and just society. In the immediate term, it nurtures self-determined and caring individuals who enjoy learning for the sake of it. Learning in an engaging and participatory environment provides a more effective learning organization.

“School Systems” Please respond to the following:

  • Select one disruptive innovation and determine how it would impede systemic reform. Select one sustaining innovation and describe how it will support systemic reform.
  • From the e-Activity, analyze the critical social system you selected. Evaluate the effectiveness of the three different attempts to reform certain aspects of the selected critical social system. 

Peer Response

Technology is an example of disruptive innovation; technology can improve the learning experiences of students and teachers and create an environment that is flexible, accessible and simple enough for everyone to participate. Technology will interrupt systemic reform only if the organization is resistant to change. If a new product or new technology is introduced that will change an organization for the better the only way it will fail is if the organization is determined to maintain the status quo.

An example of sustaining innovation would be classroom environments. Most classrooms are teacher-centered. Environments such as this do not consider how students can add to the learning experience and teachers usually set the tone for how the class will run. This example supports systemic reform because it supports mediocrity and does not consider the social systems.

Critical system: Recruitment and induction systems

Recruitment and induction systems not only explains the culture of the organization to the new employee, but also how to attract those teachers to the organization. Organizations vary in their methods when it comes to attracting new talent, but it also imperative that once they attract and hire the best candidates they provide a clear picture of how the organizations works.

An example of this social system would be the attempt to recruit and retain minority teachers. The supply of minority teachers is consistently dwindling and school boards across the country are trying new recruitment tactics to bring in more minority teachers. The National Education Association (NEA) has recommended several ways to recruit and maintain teachers. The NEA recommends “organizing media campaigns in minority communities, recruiting from other sectors such as military or business and offering fellowships and scholarships” (NEA, 2017).

Suppose that you are employed as a reporter by the local newspaper in your town. You learn that Ron Smith, one of the individuals running for sheriff in the county, has been accused of sexual assault. The victim came to you, seeking help. You want to vet her story and run an article. The election is next week. Your boss asks you to hold off publishing the article until after the election results are tallied. In the workplace, you will be confronted with ethical dilemmas. None as disturbing as this one perhaps, but dilemmas nonetheless.

Which of the three ethical principles covered so far would be the most appropriate approach to ethical dilemmas encountered in the twenty-first century? Remember that Aristotle’s focus was virtue, Kant’s was duty, and John Stuart Mill’s was utility. Defend your answer.

Include in your discussion reasons why the other two principles would not work as well today.
