The Effects of Socioeconomic Status on Vocabulary Development

The goal of many primary school teachers is to teach their students to become successful readers. It is the foundation upon which all future learning is based, in fact the federal government mandates primary grade teachers to accomplish this goal through the no child left behind legislation. No child left behind requires that all children read on grade level by third grade. Aside of the legislation mostly all primary grade teachers aspire to teach all children to read. In dealing with the elementary level of education primary school teachers are often nurturing and caring individuals who want the best for their students. Even with the support of the teachers there is usually a portion of the student’s population that has a difficult time to become readers. The reason for this is within the gender, race, and socioeconomic status of the learner.
Differences, growth rates and vocabulary manifest themselves early in a child’s life and seem most closely associated with socioeconomic status. For instance studies show that three year old children of professional parents have larger vocabularies than children of parents on welfare. Children in professional homes hear 382 words an hour while children raised in welfare homes hear an average of 167 words an hour. In one month the difference in words heard is 1,100 for professional homes and 500 to welfare homes. A major fact in society today is the school failure of disadvantage children.
Poor children confront widespread inequalities. Compared with their economically advantaged counterparts they are exposed to more family turmoil, violence, separation from their families, instability, and chaotic households. Poor children experience less social support, and their parents are less responsive and more authoritarian. Low income children are read to…...

...something which is useful for the business such as equipment or material for manufacturing the sock. This would avoid me from spending the money on things which are not really needed for the business. Wages for employees (£6.10 an hour, 6hours in total, 6days a week): £219.60 a week The other types of cost are called fixed costs. This is where the cost of the business paying something to someone does not vary or change. It stays the same. An example of this could be the staff’s wage.

Sock Heaven

...Somewhere there is a sock heaven. There must be, for where only one sock can be found the other must exist, somewhere. Did you fall behind the laundry hamper or the dark abyss behind the dresser drawers? Each time I open them I think of you, lonely and scared. Shivering in a dark corner or sucked into a dusty vacuum bag unconscious. Somewhere between the laundry hamper and the closet you disappeared. Do you have commitment issues? Perhaps my feet were too large and you just couldn’t be yourself around me. Or did the odor make your stomach churn? I never meant to drive you away. I swear that I tried to look out for you and wash my feet consistently. I may have forgotten once or twice. It wasn’t you, it was me. Is there a portal in the spin cycle that I don’t know about? Are you somewhere tropical, on the other side of the earth sipping a piña colada and tanning in the sunshine? Did you slip off a counter and go out with the trash? I’m so sorry. I never meant to abandon you. Or did you abandon me? Either way, my toes tremble in your absence. You were faithful to keep my toes warm each day. Did I treat you with the same consideration? You were my lone companion on early morning jogs through fog and rain. I know that sometimes I looked out for myself without considering your feelings. I’m sure that you were as wet and chilly as I. On the coldest of the winter nights you stayed close, soothing me into deep slumber. I will never forget you. I’m sorry I didn’t mend that......

Rob Kardashian

...up with the idea of socks. Rob has always loved socks, "socks are something I've always been passionate about"[2] he stated. His idea was to start a dress type socks line which are very colorful compared to the normal dress socks that people have been wearing for decades. Also being that it was his own idea, he wanted to name his socks line "Arthur George" which has nothing to do with the name "Kardashian" which clearly was a risk that he was happy to take. The name Kardashian has its own fans, and a lot of them, but that name is associated with his three sisters and since the socks line is exclusively for him, he wanted to make sure that people would buy it because they are actually appealing rather than just for the famous Kardashian name. That enhances what I said earlier about entrepreneurs, in the sense that he is self reliant i.e. he is depending on himself and only himself to start the socks line, he takes moderate risks i.e. he did not use the name "Kardashian" but he used his own middle name "Arthur George", strives for distinction through excellence i.e. he wants the people to love the socks because of their excellence not for the name of the brand, and is highly optimistic about it i.e. he would not be going ahead with it otherwise. Now we come to my opinion about the whole socks line idea. Coming up with the colorful socks was a very creative and smart idea. I mean let us face it, people have been wearing the same uni-colored dress socks for such a long......

Tax Havens Pull Up Socks

...Tax Havens pull up socks in ‘transparency’ era The great ‘subprime’ crisis has had its share of fallouts over past 24 months; yet there is a silver lining emerging from under the dark clouds which has the world order gearing up for a brand new era of financial discipline and enhanced regulation. Ironically, one of the positives borne out of the recent economic upheaval has been staggering focus on ensuring robust transparency standards in tax matters. Before delving further into how tax transparency and information exchange are critical for sorting financial disorder across economies, let me try and explain the concept of ‘money laundering’ and how the absence of strict standards in tax discipline have abated this menace. This also helps putting in perspective the role that the international tax policy, in tandem with other non-tax measures, plays in combating tax evasion, whether with or without aid of money laundering. What’s the color of money!! Money laundering is loosely used to describe ‘washing’ of unaccounted or illicitly sourced money through a cobweb of complex financial transactions, usually involving more than one jurisdiction. The objective of the process deployed to ‘clean’ the money is to hide either the ownership or the destination of such funds. A typical ‘laundering’ scheme could see three stages: a) Placement stage – at this stage, the objective of stakeholders is to move the illicit funds away from source location; sources of such funds can......

Homework 1

...white socks (in terms of red socks) in Boston? What is the price in Chicago? From the table we see that 1 worker-hour (1 worker working for 1 hour) employed in the production of white socks is necessary to produce 3 pairs of white socks in Boston. If this worker-hour was employed instead in producing red socks, exactly 3 pairs of red socks would be produced. Thus the price of 3 pairs of white socks is just 3 pairs of red Socks or equivalently -- the price of one pair of white socks is one pair of red socks. Similarly, in Chicago, freeing up 1 worker-hour from producing 1 pair of white socks and employing it instead in red socks production, 2 pairs of red socks can be produced. Thus, the price of 1 pair of white socks is 2 pairs of red socks, or equivalently, the price of a pair of white socks is two pairs of red socks. (b) Which city has an absolute advantage in the production of each color sock? Which city has a comparative advantage in the production of each color sock? Recall that a city has an absolute advantage over another in the production of a good if it can produce the same good with fewer resources than the other country. A city has a comparative advantage in the production of a good over another city if it has a lower opportunity cost in its production relative to the other city. To produce 1 pair of red socks, Boston requires 1/3 worker-hours whereas Chicago needs 1/2 worker hours. Thus Boston has an absolute advantage in the production of red socks......

Expressive Arts Therapy with Hospitalized Children

...Children For many children, hospitalization is traumatic. This may be due to “the feeling of not be in control of anything, the overwhelming size of equipment, unexplained comfort, and pain” (Siegel, Iida, Rachlin, & Yount, 2015, Background para. 3). Consequently, childhood trauma can result in depersonalization, disorientation, and loss of identity (Siegel et al., 2015). For this reason, the Institute for Health and Healing at California Pacific Medical Center implemented an expressive arts therapy program, termed Healing Sock Creatures, for hospitalized children. This therapy integrates psychotherapy with multi-arts in an attempt to reduce a child’s stress during their time in the hospital (Siegel et al., 2015). Results have shown that Healing Sock Creatures ultimately help to transform a child’s trauma of hospitalization into a corrective emotional experience (Siegel et al., 2015). Application to Nursing Practice In this study, Healing Sock Creatures created a safe, confidential, and caring environment, which allowed healing to occur on many levels (Siegel et al., 2015). Furthermore, these creatures proved to be a source of stress-relief and comfort for children (Siegel et al., 2015). As a nurse, this would be extremely beneficial. You would have the opportunity to get to know your patients better by them showing and explaining their unique companion, a mirror of their own feelings and experiences. As a result, you would be able to learn about a child’s fears,......

Study on Evolving Medicated Footwear for Diabetic Patients

...designed to reduce the possibility of the development of both ulcers and blisters. If these wounds are not given the attention that they need, they can potentially lead to serious infections, or even amputation. This makes it clear why choosing the right pair of diabetic slippers is an important task. The purpose of this article is to help you do just that. The first thing that you should do is visit the podiatrist. Since no two pairs of feet are exactly the same, the podiatrist can help determine whether or not your feet have any irregularities that need to be taken into account or require special care in order to maintain good health. He will also be able to provide you with additional guidance as to what sort of diabetic slipper, socks, and shoes you may need. Medicare, as well as most health insurance plans, should cover the cost of one pair of shoes for diabetics, as well as three sets of orthotic inserts each year. If you are still confused, your doctor will be able to provide you with additional guidance. Once you are aware of your feet’s particular needs, you may start looking for your special slippers. Comfort and support are the key features you should be seeking, but there are several other details you have to consider. Diabetic shoes and slippers are generally deeper than the regular footwear, as the custom insoles mush fit inside them without making your feet feel uncomfortable. Orthotic inserts are an important part of diabetic foot care, but......
