Generating ideas through prewriting

* Prewriting – is the first stage in the writing process, during which you discover what you think you know about a topic and then generate details and examples that will express and illustrate your understanding. * Ask and answer discovery questions –

1. What do I already know about this subject? 2. Why would someone else want to know about this subject? 3. What kinds of details and examples make it easier for me to understand this subject? 4. What’s the most interesting aspect of this subject?

* Free writing - is a no-holds-barred prewriting technique that involves writing down all your ideas on a subject for a set period of time-typically ten minutes. 1. Write everything that comes to mind. 2. If you feel blocked write something like “I can’t think” or “I’m stuck here” 3. Highlight, underline, or circle your best ideas.

* Brainstorming- Is a far less expansive technique than free writing.

1. Concentrate on a subject 2. Make a list of every idea directly connected to that subject. 3. A set time limit isn’t necessary. 4. You can also brainstorm using your computer, darken the screen so you cannot see what you write. 5. Print the list, highlight, underline or circle ideas you think have potential writing topics. * Clustering –is a visual prewriting technique that shows connections among the ideas you develop.

1. Write a general idea in the middle of the page and circle it. 2. As you think of a related idea or detail, write it down and circle it. 3. Draw a line connecting the ideas. 4. Continue this process.

...Living and Working in the U.S. 09/20/2012 Summary of Chapter two In the beginning of chapter two, the author imminently to convey that America is “land without limits”. It is main themes of America--freedom, as the policeman said to the Russian in the part of movie we watched in class, “Here is America, he can do anything he want.” The freedom not only exists in human rights, but also exists in human willings, such as moving into place that people would like to live, choosing jobs that people would like to enjoy, and so on. Then, the author put emphasis on Americans’ personalities in workplace. First one, nothing is impossible. Americans think they can do anything. Afterwards, the author mentioned the second personality of Americans in the workplace, just a matter of effort. In my opinion, the second one is the base of the first one; in other words, Americans believe in themselves, failure is from a lack of effort. They can do anything by hard working. For instance, professor Ross mentioned an example of “nothing is impossible”--in several years ago, Boston Celtics won the champion in NBA, when they were celebrating, KG yelled, “ Nothing is impossible! Nothing is impossible.” It expressed that they trained hardly, and tried their best to win every single game. By the way, I think it was a kind of advertisement, because “Nothing is impossible” is slogan of Adidas, and Adidas was sponsor of KG. Next, the author......

...Management Accounting | 15 Management Accounting and Decision-Making Management accounting writers tend to present management accounting as a loosely connected set of decision‑making tools. Although the various textbooks on management accounting make no attempt to develop an integrated theory, there is a high degree of consistency and standardization in methodology of presentation. In this chapter, the concepts and assumptions which form the basis of management accounting will be formulated in a comprehensive management accounting decision model. The formulation of theory in terms of conceptual models is a common practice. Virtually all textbooks in business administration use some type of conceptual framework or model to integrate the fundamentals being presented. In economic theory, there are conceptual models of the firm, markets, and the economy. In management courses, there are models of organizational structure and managerial functions. In marketing, there are models of marketing decision‑making and channels of distribution. Even in financial accounting, models of financial statements are used as a framework for teaching the fundamentals of basic financial accounting. The model, A = L + C, is very effective in conveying an understanding of accounting. Management accounting texts are based on a very specific model of the business enterprise. For example, all texts assume that the business which is likely to use management accounting is a manufacturing business. Also,...

...Chapter 2 1. How many generations of computer hardware have evolved? What is one characteristic of each generation? There are five generations. First-generation used vacuum tube technology and they are bulky and unreliable. They generated too much heat. It is too hard to program. For the second generation, it used transistors. Compared to first-generation, they are faster, more reliable, and easier to program. Third generation combined integrated circuits. Their characteristic is small and fast. As developing to fourth generation, the computer became smaller by using VLSI circuits. Personal computer appeared. Finally, the computer we use now is fifth generation. It is much faster because of parallel processing CPUs. It spends less power. 2. How many generations of computer software have evolved? What is one characteristic of each generation? There are five generations and it has been listed blow: Generation | Major attribute | First | Machine language | Second | Assembly language | Third | High-level language | Fourth | Fourth-generation language | Fifth | Natural language processing (NLP) | First, the machine language is time consuming.

...CHAPTER 2 REVIEW OF THE RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDIES This chapter presents the related literature and studies after the thorough and in-depth search done by the researchers. This will also present the synthesis of the art, theoretical and conceptual framework to fully understand the research to be done and lastly the definition of terms for better comprehension of the study. Related Literature All computer scientists who have done work in or are interested in electronic voting seem to agree that online voting does not meet the requirements for public elections and that the current widely-deployed voting systems need improvement. Voting on the Internet has disadvantages based on the areas of secrecy and protection against coercion and/or vote selling. It's such a truly bad idea that there seems to be no credible academic effort to deploy it at all. The Kenyan General elections of 2007 brought national attention to problems with current methods of casting and counting votes in public elections. Most people believe that the current system should be changed; there is much disagreement on how such changes should be made.c really can't trust any code which we did not create ourselves. Therefore, they tend to be extremely suspicious of proprietary voting machines and their makers who insist that we should “just trust [them].” Neumann gives a list of suggestions for "generic voting criteria" which suggests that a voting system should be so hard to tamper with and so......

An average time of 30 minutes to 2 hours is spent on Facebook daily. Only recently are studies beginning to examine the effects of Facebook on physical, mental, and family health. Current studies conducted in college campuses reveal that Facebook can cause similar symptoms to drug addiction, effect familial systems and patterns contribute to upper respiratory infection, cause feelings of loneliness, depression, and narcissism, and can lead to less body satisfaction and worse time management according to Kalpidou, Costin and Morris (2011). Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg and his roommates at Harvard University......

...Chapter 2, Section 3 Homework Problems Part A 1. (a) § 721 does not apply to Charlie’s contribution of services because § 721 only applies to property exchanged for an interest in the partnership. Charlie must recognize compensation for services under § 61(a)(1). Since Charlie has no risk of forfeiture, Charlie includes the compensation upon receipt of the interest under § 83. The amount included in gross income is FMV of $400K. Since Charlie contributed no other money or property to obtain his partnership interest, his basis in partnership interest is the amount included in income, $400K. Treas. Reg. § 1.722-1. The partnership will have a § 162 deduction for the amount of compensation paid and as such will reduce Avery and Blair’s basis by $200k each. (b) U.S. v. Frazell held that the incoming partner will recognize ordinary income to the extent that the partnership interest was received for exchange of the services, but § 721 applies to the portion that was contributed for property. Since we are not given the value of the services and property (building plans), we can know ascertain the amount of his contribution that would be allocated to the services and what amount would qualify for non-recognition. Charlie’s partnership interest after the exchange would be a capital asset. (c) In this case, Charlie has a substantial risk of forfeiture under § 83(a) and will be taxable on any increase of the value of the partnership interest at the time the partnership interest......

They also said that a student must have a special place to study with plenty of room to work. And students should not be cramped. They presupposes that study time will go better if a learner take a few minutes at the start to straighten things up. A desk and straight-backed chair is usually best. “Don't get too comfortable--a bed is a place to sleep, not to study” as what they said. A student must have everything close at hand (book, pencils, paper, coffee, dictionary, computer, calculator, tape recorder, etc.) before starting to study. Students are not suggested to spend on time jumping up and down to get things. The PBCC suggests also that distracting noise should be minimized however they said that there are some people need sound and some like silence.

It is believed that a grade is a primary factor that indicates of such learning. If a student earns high grades it is concluded that they may also have learned a lot while low grades indicate lesser learning. However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would affect the grades. Not a single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades. It has been interplay of so many factors – gender, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s educational attainment, social status, number of siblings, birth order, etc. In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are a variable of academic performance. However, at this point in time, the researcher would like to investigate the possible relationship of study habits and the factors affecting it to the academic achievement of under secondary student of Jaime G. Espena High School. The investigation of on this area thus becomes a real and compelling motivation for the researcher to conduct this study.

Reasoning entails presentation of arguments. It is when one makes......
