Abstract
Spelling is seen as an indication of status and education. Those who are not good at spelling often feel embarrassed about their lack of skill and are unhappy about allowing others to see what 3 they have written. As a result, they may be reluctant to write at all. Since spelling is only necessary as part of writing, any instructor who has students write in his/her class is helping students develop their spelling .For in order to develop spelling, Pupils must be involved in an active writing program in all areas of the curriculum, not just spelling. Therefore, it is crucial that spelling development is not perceived to be developed solely in an English class. This research would also be of benefit to other researchers since "Current research has challenged the traditional notion that spelling must be taught in a rote manner focusing on memorization of the sounds of letters. This study examines the spelling development of adult learners and Grade 7 children. The study investigates this central question: Does the spelling development of adult learners differ from that of Grade 7 children? It also addresses sub questions about spelling development and its association…...

Writing Deficiencies

...Running head: WRITING DEFICIENCIES Are Writing Deficiencies Creating a Lost Generation of Business Writers? Darlene Dowdy Grand Canyon University: UNV 504 In today’s world, employers throughout the United States are dissatisfied with the writing skills of their employees. One would think if a person made it all the way through college they would have good or excellent writing and grammar skills however, that is not the case. Employers when they are conducting an interview they are more aware of how the person speaks which will be a good indicator that their grammar and writing skills are up to par. Recent College graduates that are pursuing a career in the literary world do not have the writing skills that are need in this profession. According to the National Commission on Writing, they collected data from various large corporations located within the United States. Their finding is that 64 out of 120 corporations which employ’s roughly 8 million people spend over 3.1 billion dollars just to reeducate their employees on their use of grammar and writing skills. Employer’s today whether it is in the literary world or not are looking for individuals that have good grammar and writing skills, the inability to have these skills will result in poor communication and that means businesses will not be able to thrive if they cannot effectively communicate with others. How did this happen that students do not have the proper writing and......

Reward Deficiency Syndrome

...extinguished, this deficiency may cause the person to look for stronger and stronger stimuli so that he or she can feel the same sense of pleasure and accomplishment as a normal person would. This search can easily end up with drug addiction, or other compulsive behavior such as sugar binging or sexual mania. In some forms of drug addiction, a vicious circle is set up, since drugs such as cocaine will cause further damage to the brain, requiring a still more extreme stimulus. On occasion, a person may have no activity at all in the D2 receptors. This at least protects him or her from drug addiction, and such a person has the uncanny ability to consume large quantities of powerful drugs with no effect on his or her mood whatsoever. But it also means that that person will feel no internal impulse to accomplish tasks. When not compelled by obligation to others or some separate drive like intellectual curiosity, the sufferer from full-blown reward deficiency syndrome will be extremely reluctant to do anything for himself or herself other than the absolutely essential. This obviously has a crippling effect on personal ambition and leaves the sufferer indifferent to any form of "getting ahead." Promotions, careers, rites of passage, congratulatory rituals -- all are incomprehensible to such a person. He or she will drift through life, not understanding what moves other persons, lacking a sense of the future or any compulsion to improve himself or herself. Reward deficiency......

Writing Deficiencies

...Frances Griffin gives the insight of how a poor writing skills is causing huge damages in business world. “In 2004, The Nation Commission on Writing (NCW) decided to do a research and collected cost data from 64 of 120 large America corporations that were connected with the business world and had employed nearly 8 million people. And when NCW posted the results and it showed how American Firms spend as much as $3.1 billion to improve their employees’ writing deficiencies” ( College board, The NCW for American Families, Schools, and Colleges, 2004). It is a shock seeing how poor writing skills are costing us Americans billions to improve employees’ writing skills, when this is something we should have learned during our School years. According to NCW report “The skills of new college graduates are deplorable-across the board: spelling, grammar, sentence structure …I can’t believe people came out of college now not knowing what a sentence is” so employers are not only frustrated with their employees because of writing deficiencies, but also exasperated with the new graduates. In addition, teacher have been using a rule-based method, which are also known as tradition school grammar (Hillocks & Smith, 2003). According to Hillocks, Traditional School Grammar has shown little or no help in students’ progress especially in writing and he backed up his statement with his research on rule-based method (Hillocks et al., 2003). However, later on National Council of Teachers of......

Iron Deficiency Anemia

...Name Instructor Subject Date Iron Deficiency Anemia Anemia, is a condition which the body has less red blood cells as required (Killip 671). Anemia also occurs if the red blood cells does not have enough hemoglobin. Hemoglobin helps the red blood cells to carry oxygen from the lungs to the other parts of the body. It is protein in nature and rich in iron. When one is suffering from anemia the cells in their body might not receive enough supply of oxygen. The most common symptom of anemia is fatigue (Killip 671). This is because the body organs may not be getting enough of what they need to function properly. There are over 400 different types of anemia but are divided into three groups due to their causes. There is anemia caused due to blood loss, there is anemia caused by faulty or decreased red blood cells production and there is anemia caused by the destruction of the red blood cells (Killip 671). All of these anemia`s have different causes and treatment. There are some anemia that are considered normal like the anemia that develops during pregnancy, though some different types can cause lifelong health problems (Killip 671). The most common type of anemia is the iron deficiency anemia. This is a disease which can be treated with diet changes and iron supplements (Killip 671). Iron deficiency anemia in many cases occurs to a person who has lower than the required or normal red blood cells in their blood (Leung et al 376). Cases that can contribute to a person having...

Are Writing Deficiencies Creating a Lost Generation of Business Writers?”

...Are Writing Deficiencies Creating a Lost Generation of Business Writers? ZANE K. QUIBLE FRANCES GRIFFIN OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY STILLWATER, OKLAHOMA ABSTRACT. Business professionals and instructors often view writing skills as one of the most important qualifications that employees should possess. However, many business employees, including recent college graduates, have serious writing deficiencies, especially in their ability to use standard English. As a result, American businesses spend billions of dollars annually to remediate these writing deficiencies (College Board, the National Commission on Writing for America’s Families, Schools, and Colleges, 2004). In this article, the authors examine possible reasons for these deficiencies and offer evidence that a modified context-based approach, the glossing approach, and consistent error marking can reduce the number of sentence-level errors students make. Keywords: context-based approach, grammar, punctuation, rules-based approach, writing deficiencies Copyright © 2007 Heldref Publications T hat many employers in the United States are dissatisfied with their employees’ writing skills is not a surprise to individuals who frequently peruse the professional literature in nearly any academic field or discipline (Gray, Emerson, & MacKay, 2005; Wise, 2005). Although the expressions of dismay are frequent and often strong, educators have done little to rectify the situation. Costs of Employees’ Poor Writing Skills material to...

Significant Deficiencies in Audit

... Summary –ISA 265 Audit firm should consider its reporting responsibilities under ISA 265 Communicating Deficiencies in Internal Control to Those Charged with Governance and Management.. A deficiency in internal control is defined by ISA 265 as a control designed, implemented or operated in such a way that it is unable to prevent, or detect and correct, misstatements on a timely basis, or a control necessary to prevent, or detect and correct, misstatements in financial statements on a timely basis is missing. After completing further audit procedures, the audit firm must decide if the control deficiencies identified constitute deficiencies, or significant deficiencies in internal control. This is an important distinction because significant deficiencies should be communicated in writing to those charged with governance on a timely basis during the audit. This implies that the control deficiency, being significant, should be communicated as soon as possible, so that corrective action can be taken quickly by the company. Management should also be made aware of significant deficiencies on a timely basis. Auditor’s determination necessarily of significant deficiencies is a subjective exercise because it rests on professional judgment In particular, the significance of a deficiency depends on two factors * The likelihood that a misstatement could occur * The potential magnitude of the misstatement Standard also provides guidance on: Relevant considerations, e.g., *......

Iron Deficiency Anemia

...Case Study 1 Iron Deficiency Anemia Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) is the result of not having enough iron in the body. It is the leading cause of anemia worldwide; commonly caused by nutritional deficiencies. (Iron Disorders Institute, 2015). Red blood cells (RBC) use iron for development, without enough iron the blood is unable to effectively carry oxygen. The information below will compare the diagnosing process of IDA with the information provided in the case study regarding Ms. A. and; confirming the diagnosis IDA. Causes The body stores iron and when the reserves are low it is referred to as IDA. This occurs when the body is not able to replace the RBCs and iron as fast as the body is losing it. Another contributor is the body is not absorbing the iron or the body can absorb the iron but the consumption of iron rich foods is inadequate. Other causes of IDA is loss of iron from bleeding. Bleeding can be a result of heavy menstrual cycles, stomach & esophageal cancer, varices in the esophagus from liver cirrhosis, peptic ulcers, gastrointestinal bleeding and from prolonged use of aspirin and other anti inflammatory medications. (Mayo Clinic, 2015). Rational: Ms. A states, “menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea has been a problem for 10-12 years”. She also reports taking 1000 mg of aspirin every 3-4 hours for six days while menstruating. (GCU, 2015). Symptoms Symptoms of IDA can start out being mild with little or no symptoms at all. Mild symptoms include: irritability,......

Infrastructural Deficiency in the United States

...Infrastructural Deficiency in the United States Matt Bys Western Governors University The Golden Gate Bridge and the Hoover Dam are some of the greatest parts of infrastructure in the United States of America. America would not be as great as it is without these astounding structures. The dams provide safety and bridges provide the public with faster transportation to new areas. America’s once great infrastructure is being taken for granted and deteriorating quickly. Research suggests American infrastructure requires more devotion from the government because the safety of American lives are at risk and the economy would improve from building better infrastructure. According to researcher Walter, America’s infrastructure is crumbling(2013). American infrastructure has been graded by the American Society of Civil Engineers and received a D in 2009. The elderly American infrastructure is putting the nation’s well-being at risk and is getting worse each passing year. The Minneapolis bridge collapse and New Orleans failing levees during hurricane Katrina are just a couple of devastating examples that show the state of American infrastructure(Walter, 2013). The bridge collapse in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2007 had been designated structurally deficient just like 77,000 other bridges in America(Stawicki, 2007). Minnesota officials had known since 1990 that the bridge was considered structurally deficient. Officials had done patchwork on the bridge since then and did......

Highest Level of Deficiency Case

...Highest Level of Deficiency Case ACC 410 Auditing August 24 For each of the following independent cases, state the highest level of deficiency that you believe the circumstances represent – a control deficiency, a significant deficiency, or a material weakness. Explain your decision in each case. Case 1 The company processes a significant number of routine intercompany transactions. Individual intercompany transactions are not material and primarily relate to balance sheet activity--- for example, cash transfers between business units to finance normal operations. A formal management policy requires monthly reconciliation of intercompany accounts and confirmation of balances between business units. However there is not a process in place to ensure performance of these procedures. As a result detailed reconciliation of intercompany accounts are not performed on a timely basis. Management does perform monthly procedures to investigate selected large-dollar intercompany account differences. In addition management prepares a detailed monthly variance analysis of operating expenses to assess their reasonableness. I believe that this case represents a significant deficiency due to the fact that reconciliation is not performed on time each month. Any misstatement that might occur from this deficiency is more than likely to be an immaterial......
