    Case Study: A Fish Story

    • 712 Words

    Aiza Nageeb A Fish Story Not everything in life is crystal clear; sometimes we need to dig deeper to find the true meaning behind a particular idea/thing. In the case study, "A Fish Story" a college professor is trying to teach his students a lesson by making them observe a small fish on a white plate. For three days in a row, the professor assigns the students the same assignment and as the days progress, the students find new results. The first day the students notice basic physical characteristics about the fish, like its size and the color of the plate it rests on. The second day the students use a book to find out about the type of fish it is, and the third day they dig deeper and observe minuscule details; like its weight, position of the mouth and texture. The main purpose of the professor leaving the students unsupervised was so that they could find answers on their own. I believe that the professor did this so that students would learn that not all answers are obvious and that to find them, one must really think. It is very clear in the story that the professor was not looking for something specific when he assigned the students the task of observing the fish. His main goal was to teach them a lesson that would help them during their college years, and for the rest of their lives. The lesson the professor was trying to hint at was that sometimes in life not everything is going to be easy. There will be times when one must struggle, like the college students had…

    In the essay “The Dog Ate My Disk, an Other Tales of Woe” Professor Carolyn Foster Segal explains that even after lengthy syllabus warnings and a humorous cartoon of a cat explaining to its teacher that a dog ate its homework, students still came up with multiple excuses for being tardy, absent or turning in assigned work late. She categorized the excuses into these five categories, the family, the best friend, the evils in dorm life, the evils in technology, and the totally bizarre. For…

    (letters, numbers, punctuation, etc.) backwards and by hand (Mays, 2015). The folio required multiple printers, and since they were responsible for the spelling that explains why no two Folios are the same (Mays, 2015). Since there were different views on how to spell specific words, one printer spelled something one way, but then his colleague would spell it differently for the next copy. The aspects of the printing process can get very detailed, and though these facts are rarely discussed in…

    Another weakness I noticed in my work is I would apply my own knowledge and logic to my interpretations, which is a skill that can be great, but it can also backfire. For example, one docent signed something that I was certain was accidental, so I decided to correct her mistake in my interpretation. This was a strategy that I have seen other interpreters use, and know it to be effective, but I found it was the wrong choice for this moment. The docent caught my correction and made me reinterpret…

    Moreover, given the amount of intellectual capital within an academic institution, it is imperative that the docents, assistant docents, lecturers, professors, and administrators be included in the BSC strategic planning process. A method the Dekan can use is the Virtuous Strategy Cycle (Martin, 2010). It is a framework that enables employees (faculty) to send information back upstream, improving the knowledge base of decision makers higher up and enabling everyone in the organization to…

    I have had vast extremes when visiting art museums. I remember going to the Nelson Atkins Museum as a high school field trip. After getting off the bus we were greeted by a docent that led us through the museum stopping at paintings of his choice and telling us about that painting and his opinions on it. While passing past others with just a brief description of the artist and art. There was no interaction, as students we were quiet, we listened, and we were quite bored. We never got a chance to…
