(d) Summary of the study
Objectives: Examined and evaluated special provision for pupils with dyslexia in three settings (reading schools, reading units and mainstream support) in Ireland.
Methods: There are three groups of participants, including students with dyslexia in three settings in Ireland, 72 teachers supporting those students and 63 parents of those students. The study incorporated a survey approach (including questionnaires, focus group discussions, interviews and classroom observations) and a case-study approach (two cases for each model of those children from six schools were selected).
Results and conclusion: Similar practices teachers are used for dyslexic children in different settings. Placement in a reading school or unit does not guarantee a child will catch up with peers. Effective literacy intervention approaches and underlying rationale should be established and understood for dyslexic children in order to match the child’s stage of development and individual strengths, and provide careful and intensive support to offer an opportunity to experience an appropriate adaptation of learning.
(e) Application of the findings
Adam’s case obviously showed how an inappropriate educational environment influences one’s growth and development with dyslexia. Adam’s visual problem has long-term effect on his learning ability which hasn’t been discovered and dealt with at his early stage of education. School teachers and principal perceived him as “not college material” and provided an inappropriate learning environment to him,…...

General background Company history ) in Chinese Pinyin, is located Founded in 1992, Bags of Luck (BoL), or Xingyun Bao ( in a small coastal town, Xiao Min Nan (XMN), in South Eastern Fujian province, People’s Republic of China, halfway between the coastal cities of Xiamen and Quanzhou. As an industrial park, XMN was created out of Yang’s oyster farming village with a population of just under 1,000. The name of the village derived from the fact that most of the indigenous villagers were descendents of a local Yang family. With its geographic proximity to and cultural similarity with Taiwan, XMN was developed at the beginning of the 1990s with the most advanced infrastructure with the aim of attracting Taiwanese investors to set up manufacturing facilities there to take advantage of cheap labour and tax incentives. After 20 years’ of explosive development, XMN has grown to become a bustling modern town hosting over 2,000 manufacturing firms, 80 per cent of which are foreign invested, with a working population of 500,000. Almost 100 per cent of the goods manufactured in XMN are labour intensive products designed abroad and exported to North America and the EU.

Howard Case Study Analysis

...Effective tactic for retaining talent employees are like managing a streaming river, its objectives aren’t to stopping the river from streaming, instead is to control its streaming direction and its speed. Just like Adam’s circumstances, since few employees had already turned over, he’s objective isn’t to stop the employee turning over immediately; instead, he is to control the number of employees from turning over to his competitors. The first course of action that Adam had to do is to understand and judge is, which are the employee turnovers is unfavorable for the company, or which are the ones can be avoidable? And what are the employee turnovers that are favorable to the company, or which of these employee turnovers aren’t preventable? Then consider from the facts to reduce the predictable and avoidable employment turnovers. Normally, favorable employment turnovers are these level C employees that have low efficiency; and these unfavorable turnover for the company are the core employees, which losing one out of these core employee can causes the company a tremendous loss. Which in Adam’s case, he’s losing his core employees that can cause him to have tremendous loss that are unfavorable to the hotel. Secondly, Adam is to do deep adjustments from top-down management layers in order to provide better management on its employees. The adjustment should including the change of frequency for managers on meeting and participate more with the key employees, show understanding...

She assumed that she is an effective and efficient teacher in Araling Panlipunan because of that. There are many teachers qualified and much deserving to teach the star section. Now, the students are complaining of the expenses regarding projects, special projects and the way she behave in classroom. II. HISTORY AND BACKGROUND OF THE FACTS Mrs. Boots De Vola have underwent the process of being LSB teacher, PSB teacher, before she was declared as regular teacher in Banana National High School. It has been five years that she handled Aralin in section one. There are congruency on each year complaint but since the students are afraid of failing her subject they remained quiet. I seldom hear news about her projects and the money she collected from her advisory class. Every single mistake has an specified amount to be collected as fine, but the students don’t know where these money will be spent. Another concern about Mrs. Boots De Vola is the way she handled and treated her students. She always nag and shout to students, for her it’s the way of disciplining her students. Some of the students chose to dropped schooling because they felt being degraded and they do not have money for everyday fine. Lately, a mother asked her about the special project of her son amounting one hundred thirty pesos. The project was properly discussed, but we found out that......

...A Guide to Case Analysis I keep six honest serving men (They taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When; And How and Where and Who. — Rudyard Kipling 2 A Guide to Case Analysis In most courses in strategic management, students use cases about actual companies to practice strategic analysis and to gain some experience in the tasks of crafting and implementing strategy. A case sets forth, in a factual manner, the events and organizational circumstances surrounding a particular managerial situation. It puts readers at the scene of the action and familiarizes them with all the relevant circumstances. A case on strategic management can concern a whole industry, a single organization, or some part of an organization; the organization involved can be either profit seeking or not-for-profit. The essence of the student’s role in case analysis is to diagnose and size up the situation described in the case and then to recommend appropriate action steps. Why Use Cases to Practice Strategic Management? A student of business with tact Absorbed many answers he lacked. But acquiring a job, He said with a sob, “How does one fit answer to fact?” The foregoing limerick was used some years ago by Professor Charles Gragg to characterize the plight of business students who had no exposure to cases.1 The facts are that the mere act of listening to lectures and sound advice about managing does little for anyone’s management skills and that the accumulated managerial......

Nordstrom Case

...the company would compensate him accordingly. However, as compensation is linked to both the value of the sale and the time taken doing it (with the longer taken the less employees are compensated), employees are often tempted to submit distorted records. According to Nordstrom, this is ‘to generate high pace and high dollar sales’. Given that very little formal training is given to employees regarding this, in reality, it results in overwork, inaccuracy, and inefficiency. 3. Decentralized management approach Nordstrom's decentralized system gives managers too much power to make decisions on hiring, managing and firing. The lack of policies to follow, gives managers power of authority, which tends to be abused. According to the case, in one instance a manager committed serious discriminatory actions to meet certain standards. Furthermore, since employees do not receive formal training and there are not clear guidelines of conduct, employees can be disoriented as for how to act in certain situations, what is expected of them and how to communicate with the management. 4. Excessive competition and peer pressure Competition in the workplace is healthy to a certain degree, yet Nordstrom’s highly competitive mindset causes a lot of anxiety among the employees, sometimes resulting into an “unhealthy” work environment. For example, employees are highly encouraged to outpace each other in their sales figure to win the awards (“Pacesetter”, “Customer Service All......

Case Brief

...was made of Scott Sells and Jon Stones. Procedural History The Appellee brought suit against the Appellant citing negligent emotional distress caused by the Appellant mistakenly advising her of her son’s death. The jury in the district court for Adam’s County returned a $15,000 verdict for Joyce Sell. The hospital appealed and the Supreme Court held that Joyce Sell failed to present a prima facie cause of action for negligent emotional distress. This is due to the lack of evidence establishing a medically significant and diagnosable emotional harm. Issue Is the Supreme Court correct in its holding that the Appellee in this case failed to present evidence establishing a medically diagnosable and significant emotional harm as well as a prima facie cause of action for negligent emotional distress? Holding The court ruled the district court’s decision is reversed. The cause is remanded with directions to dismiss. Rationale The court referenced previous case Parrish v. Omaha Pub. Power Dist. in their decision. In that case it was determined for a valid claim of negligent emotional distress the plaintiff must “show that a negligent act of the defendant’s proximately caused her to suffer extreme emotional distress.” In this case, the court ruled that the hospital was negligent and was the cause of the injury. The Appellee however, failed to establish emotional distress; which is both medically significant and diagnosable. Disposition The trial court's judgment is......

Besides that, in regard to a possible promotion chance, Sally and Andrew chose a candidate who has closer relationship with them, which, to other employees, was quite demotivated. Approaches To solve the problems existing in leadership, a problem-solving tool called root-cause analysis shall be adopted provided with the following reasons: 1. Root cause analysis (RCA) is a method of problem solving used for identifying the root causes of faults or problems.

...Background  In this case you are asked to compare two different investment strategies the “maintain” and the  “growth”. You will need to use an incremental approach in comparing each strategy to the  no­growth strategy which is Du Pont’s current strategy. You will ultimately decide if the  “maintain” or the “growth” strategy is the best strategy for Du Pont. To determine the answer you  will be asked a series of questions. Some questions are easy and others more difficult but they  are all designed to help you to arrive at a solution to this case.  While all the information that is needed to answer these questions is provided within the case,  here is some additional information that will help you to identify the important problems in this  case. Assume that there will be no additional foreign competition. Assume that Du Pont will  make available to its competitors at no cost all the necessary information so that the competition  can develop the chloride process to use in producing titanium dioxide. Du Pont has also decided  that it will no longer restrict the licensing of the ilmenite chloride process. These should help  eliminate any threat of anti­trust problems.  The strategy that Du Pont actually selected may or may not have been the correct one. What is  important is how you analyze the problems in the case. Your logic and reasoning when  answering the questions asked will determine your grade.  In 1972 rates were as follows:  90­day commercial paper =......
