Part 1 discussion post:
Locating a grant RFP. This Discussion has 4 Parts.
Part 1: Google – grants in Human Services & locate a grant request for proposals
Part 2: Explain the proposal – be sure to include the link.
Part 3: What grant writing components would you need to write a proposal (be sure to use concepts presented in this course)?
Part 4: How does the qualified research factor in writing a grant proposal?
Part 2 2 discussion replies:
his Discussion consists of three parts as well as the peer response. Part 1: Utilize the web site Little Red Riding Hood to complete the following:
Develop a codebook based on the themes you identify after reading the story. You must have 5 to 7 themes.
In your codebook, you need to have at least two examples from the story to support your code.
Part 2: Navigate to and apply your code to the story: The Three Little Pigs.
How well did the code work?
What can you generalize about fairy tales based on your analysis of these two fairy tales?
Part 3: Provide a visual display of your findings based on both fairy tales and your codebook.

Codebook themes based on “Little Red Riding Hood”
Lessons. The beginning and end, meaning does the story begin with “Once upon a time,” and does it end with a lesson being learned? “Little Red Riding Hood” begins with the phrase, “Once upon a time,” and ends with Red understanding danger (Little Red Riding Hood). Identity. Is the name of the fairy tale inherent to the identify of the characters? Little Red Riding Hood is called such because she was given a velvet cap by her grandmother (Little Red Riding Hood). Childishness. Does the main character or characters exhibit a certain sense of naivety? When she meets the wolf, Little Red Riding Hood is too innocent to understand what a monster he is. She tell shim where she is going, sealing her fate, and that of her grandmother (Little Red Riding Hood). Adherence. Does the main character willingly go against the wishes of more knowledgeable parties? Red speaks to strangers and wanders off the trail despite her mother’s warnings (Little Red Riding Hood).
Personification. Does the story personify an animal, and is the animal a villain? The wolf can talk and wears human clothes to fool Red (Little Red Riding Hood). Reality. Do things that otherwise would be impossible occur in the story? Animals can speak and wear clothes, and Red and her grandmother are cut out of the wolf after he hate them, both of which are impossible. Codes applied to “The Three Little Pigs”
Lessons: The story begins with, “Once upon a time,” and in the end the pigs do learn about hard work and cooperation. Identity: The story is called “The Three Little Pigs” and contains three little pigs as three of the 5 characters. Childishness: Two of the pigs are lazy, building their houses out of flimsy material. However, they fully understand the danger of the wolf, eventually banding together to kill him. Adherence: No specific guidelines were given to the pigs, other than to go out in the world and, “find their fortune,” because the mother does not have enough to feed them (Steel). Personification: Every character in the story is personified. The animals talk, build homes, and plot the death of one another. Reality: Several impossible things happen. Wolves do not blow things down, for example. They attack. Pigs are not able to build houses out of straw or anything else. Wolves cannot climb houses and crawl down chimneys. Pigs cannot heat water and plot to boil other animals alive. Ultimately the code book worked, but only to a degree. Reply to Holly:
The themes that I found during reading Little Red Riding Hood were the following:
1. Awareness: by questioning the appearance of grandmother LRRH notices that something isn’t right; she also notices that flowers that are around her and she wonders about picking them and bringing them to grandmother. 2. Obey adults: mother asked her to take some things to grandmother and to not step off the path; Grandmother asks her to take the water to the trough so they could lure out the wolf with the smell of sausages boiling. 3. Actions have consequences: by stepping off the path, LRRH talks to the wolf and by talking to the wolf, which gets grandmother eaten; the wolf eats grandmother which in turn gets him killed by the huntsman to save grandmother. 4. lessons learned: LRRH learns to not step off the path and is aware of that for the future trips to grandmothers (which is shown when the next wolf try to talk to her and she ignores him
The code worked for somethings in Three little pigs; the fact that they learned their lessons after the wolf comes and blows down the first two houses and not the third, by working hard you build something that will last.
Actions have consequences: again by not taking the house building seriously the first two pigs loose their houses; also the wolf gets greedy trying to get to the pigs and he ends up being cooked.
