Accelerated Reader Program Versus Traditional Reading Programs Term Paper

… ¶ … AR vs. Traditional

The Accelerated Reader program has received significant attention in the last few years, as it is reported to have shown great promise for correcting reading deficiencies in most grade levels. The program is a significant boost for some readers, as it offers rewards and excitement for increased reading behaviors and it also has an intrinsic assessment aspect that many educators find useful in understanding the reading levels of students. Yet, it is also a significant allocation for many schools as it requires resources that might not already be in place and has a rather significant price tag on top of that. The program has received positive and negative reviews from users and educators, and requires training and education to use…. [read more]

APPLICATION of PHOENIX PROGRAM LESSONS to IRAQ

It is not at all unusual to hear popular comparisons made between the Vietnam War and the current war in Iraq and though most experts see only a casual relationship still others see a comparison that is not only valid but is applicable to the utilization of historical Vietnam tactics and lessons learned from them to formulate reasonable resolutions to the Iraq War. In a collection of essays analyzing the similarities and differences of the Vietnam and Iraq Wars, ed. David Ryan demonstrates that the two wars are very similar in public sentiment…. [read more]


Westjet vs. Air Canada Why Westjet Will Win Dissertation

… ¶ … airline industry has become increasingly competitive in recent years due in part to the horsewhipping it experienced following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The ongoing global economic downturn and high energy prices have added further constraints to airline performance. In this environment, it is not surprising that airlines that are agile and nimble in their response to changing market conditions will enjoy a competitive advantage, and this has certainly been the case with WestJet's performance compared to the struggling Air Canada airlines. By providing the flying public with no-frills, low-cost regional and international alternatives, WestJet has not only survived during this turbulent period, it has also gained market share from Air Canada, continuing the bleeding of this former industry leader.

Human Resources Managing Organisational Culture Dissertation

… d).

Understanding of organisational culture and cultural types also helps the understanding of why managerial reforms may impact differently within and between organisations. An organisation with a predominantly internal process culture, for example, may be more resistant to reforms aimed at promoting innovation. It is expected that staff in high uncertainty avoidance cultures to be more concerned with rule-following and more reluctant to risk changing jobs - both factors of some importance for those reformers who want to deregulate bureaucracies and encourage more rapid job change in the public service'. Businesses in both the private and public sectors have come to understand that organisational change frequently requires changing the organisation's culture and learning (O'Donnell & Boyle, 2008).

Whatever the purpose and performance results of culture…. [read more]


Corporations Send Out Messages Dissertation

… Corporations send out messages constantly -- through ads, commercials, websites, quarterly and annual reports, job postings on Monster.com, memos tacked up on lunchroom bulletin boards. The audiences for these different messages are different from each other, which is one of the major reasons that traditionally companies have not worried about whether they are presenting a consistent message on all of these fronts. If the memos about how to file an expense report sent out to employees don't sound anything like the annual report filed with the SEC, well there was no reason that they should.

However, in the last few years companies have been moving more and more toward what is known as an integrated corporate communication system so that all of the messages coming…. [read more]


Amazon.com a Strategic Assessment Essay

… The focus in the case study often reverts to the customer loyalty aspects of Amazon and its web design. The case also makes the point that the accuracy, speed and precision of the experience are contributing factors to profitability (Amazon Investor Relations, 2012). These are two strong contributions to Amazon achieving its revenue, profit, sales and service strategic plans on an annual basis. Without the build-out of the e-commerce infrastructure, Amazon would not have been able to deliver such an exceptionally positive and consistent level of customer experience. In aggregate, the e-commerce infrastructure strategies all contributed to this significant contribution (Lindic, Bavdaz, Kovacic, 2012).

A second major contribution e-strategies have made to the company is the wealth of analytics, business intelligence (BI) in addition to…. [read more]

Applying Deming's PDCA Model to Software Testing as a Service

Cloud computing is a revolutionary force in the development of programming, testing, software quality management and deployment technologies, with the greatest potential contributions in application testing and validation. The current software quality management processes that are predicated on Six Sigma methodologies are delivering higher levels of quality in enterprise applications, improved by the integration of Deming's PDCA processes within their broader workflows (Jones, Parast, Adams, 2010). Cloud computing technologies show potential to reduce software testing cycles and improve quality to a level not seen in previous testing and quality management approaches (Zultner, 1988).….

Hedge Fund Management Technics Research Proposal

… Hedge Fund Management Technique, the title for this thesis/Capstone, denotes the realm of research this study presents.

Point

HEDGE FUND Management TECHNIQUES

"...even the most promising hedge fund can fail."

Potential Profit "Promises"

Hedge funds "could make money [even] if stock, bond, commodity, and currency prices fell," however, as the introductory quote for this thesis/Capstone contends: "...even the most promising hedge fund can fail."

Initially, as techniques implemented were able to invest in ways that could make money even when stock, bond, commodity, and currency prices fell, the "promises" of hedge funds captivated investors' interest, who perceived hedge funds as a means to protect their money by "hedging" long-term stock investments' risks. Mutual funds' techniques, on the other hand, which invested solely in stocks and…. [read more]

Quality Indicators for Research Research Paper

… Quality Indicators for Research

There are many different teaching strategies available to educators. Scaffolding is one of them. Scaffolding simply means providing the student with aids in order to help him learn a subject and requires detailed planning on the part of the teacher. Scaffolding helps the student build on prior knowledge in order to move forward to gain new knowledge. This type of teaching strategy is not meant to be long-term because as the student continues to learn, the support from the teacher decreases. An example of scaffolding would be where the teacher divides the class into small groups so that the students can learn from one another. However, the students still receive assistance from the teaching in this type of setting. Many teachers…. [read more]

Pedagogic Model: Teaching Technology in Special Education Dissertation

… " (Dougiamas, 1998) Such trivial constructivism, though, is the bedrock from which Glaserfelds more radical constructivism springs. He continues to state that because knowledge is constructed by the learner, and because no two learners are the same, knowledge itself is not absolute. There is a degree to which knowledge is an illusion, and every individual constructs their own conception of reality which (while susceptible to the demands of "real" or normal reality) does not necessarily align with the normal paradigm. Constructivism does embrace this relativistic and existential approach to reality, but it also holds as a primary value the idea of constraint which enables the thinkers to participate in social interaction and mainstream reality. (Glasersfeld)



One interesting area of constructionist theory is…. [read more]

THE RECESSION AND African-AmericanS

IN THE METROPOLITAN AREA

"Researchers use the scholarly literature in a study to present results of similar studies, to relate the present study to an ongoing dialogue in the literature and to provide a framework for comparing results of a study with other studies"

John W. Creswell (2008, p. 45).

Even though the "literature" the researcher utilizes in literature review constitutes any collection of materials relating to a topic; not automatically the world's great literary texts, as Literature Reviews (2007) asserts, for this study's literature review, the researcher, as John W. Creswell (2008) notes in his book, In Research Design, primarily utilizes the scholarly literature for this segment's framework.

Rapid Innovations in Technology Thesis

… For example, Hurrell and Woods emphasize that, "Within weak states globalization and widening inequality are eroding the capacity of governments to deal with an increasing set of social, economic, and political conflicts" (1999: 2). At the regional level, the inequalities being generated by globalization are creating instability and the further marginalization of the already impoverished (Blank 2007). At the global level, the implications of the inequalities being caused by globalization are even more severe. In this regard, Hurrell and Woods add that, "As globalization creates sharper and more urgent problems for states and international institutions, increasing inequality reduces their capacity to manage these problems effectively. In this context, it is unsurprising that the sense of unease about globalization has increased and that political and media…. [read more]

Role of Land Settlement Cooperative in the Kingdom of Thailand and Its Business Performance Term Paper

… Role of Land Settlement Cooperative in the Kingdom of Thailand and Its Business Performance

Prior to the Cooperative Crisis

Agriculture is a mark of civilization for the mankind.

It is beyond economy.

It is a part of our society, and a part of our culture." (Kittiampon)

Interview: Thailand...," 2000)

Cooperative Contentions

This researcher contends that in Thailand, an agricultural cooperative's business duties, when dealing with farmers may be divided into two primary scopes:

The first "scope" consists of the original idea founding the agricultural cooperative, focusing on money, in the realms of either savings or loans.

Another "scope," marketing needs to cover the dual aspects of marketing agricultural products, such as providing pertinent agricultural input to members and gathering members' products to resell.

The primary…. [read more]


Shipping Chartering Term Paper

… Future of Shipping

The shipping industry has a long history, but the nature of the business changes over that history. It has been changing in recent years because of the pressures for change caused by internationalization, globalization, technological advances, economic shifts in different parts of the world, and so on. Where the tradition has been for companies to sail their own ships, carrying cargo for a fee, more and more companies are finding different ways to accomplish the same business, such as by chartering vessels for the job at hand, or having other companies handle the procedures as a form of third-party management, or some other approach to cut costs, reduce risk, and yet increase business all at the same time. The changes in the…. [read more]
