EIL Project

For our Module 5 assignment, you will complete an individual project. You should view this project as a capstone to the course, a project that builds on what you’ve learned so far and expands your learning into an area that is of particular interest to you. As each of us has different interests and experience in teaching English as an international language, this project offers you the opportunity to pursue a project that fits with your personal andprofessional interests.

For those of you who have experience with and access to an EIL classroom, you might consider implementing (and documenting) a new instructional initiative or innovative series of lessons. Or, regardless of your level of teaching experience, you might propose a project focused on lesson planning (perhaps an 8-lesson unit plan). Or, you may be interested in devising and conducting a simple research project (such as a survey of English learners or EIL teachers) or creation of some curriculum materials (e.g. an app for English learning; a (section of a) textbook). Be creative and follow your interests.

To begin your project, you will write a proposal for what it is you want to do. As you begin thinking about a project, the question you should ask yourself is,”What would be a project of interest and value to me as a (future) teacher of EIL?” From this question, devise a project plan for you and send me your proposal of that project by Friday, March 13th.

Include these elements in your project proposal: 1) your goals for the project; 2) your procedures for meeting those goals; and 3) a description of the product you will produce (a research report, a portfolio, a log of hours of instruction, etc). Project proposals should be submitted via this link by Friday, March 13th. I will provide you with feedbackregarding your proposed project, and we will come to an agreement on the parameters of your project.

Your project is due Friday, April 24th (the project is the assignment for Module 5). Submit your proposal by Friday, March 13th (5 pm).

Medium Versus Message

Research the latest trends of electronic media in the workplace.

Write a 500- to 500-word paper using APA format.

Select and summarize three specific software products or computer-mediated communication trends. Compare their advantages and disadvantages.

Analyze areas for opportunity in your workplace concerning the implementation of specific web conferencing software by answering the following questions:

  • How would implementing new forms of computer-mediated technology affect your organization’s communication?
  • As a manager, how might you make computer-mediated communication most effective? Consider any necessary training and costs, the challenge of keeping your staff on task during virtual meetings or webinars, the use of proper etiquette, the effect of computer-mediated communication on team dynamics, and so on.
  • What is the importance of managers selecting the appropriate channel for message distribution in the Information Age?
  • A minimum of one reference and one in-text citation is required.

NOTE: Show your work in the problems.

1. In the following situations, indicate whether youd use the normal distribution, the t distribution, or neither.

1. In families with four children, youre interested in the probabilities for the different possible numbers of girls in a family. Using theoretical probability (assume girls and boys are equally likely), compile a five-column table with the headings 0 through 4, for the five possible numbers of girl children in a four-child family. Then, using G for girls and B for boys, list under each heading the various birth-order ways of achieving that number of girls in a family.

Then, use your table to calculate the following probabilities:

a. The probability of 1 girl
b. The probability of 2 girls
c. The probability of 4 girls
d. The probability the third child born is a girl

2. As pictured in Figure 6.11 of your textbook, a roulette wheel has 38 numbers: 18 odd black numbers from 1 to 35, 18 even red numbers from 2 to 36, and the two green numbers 0 and 00. Using theoretical probability, calculate the following:

a. The probability of spinning a green number
b. The probability of spinning a number greater than 30
c. The probability of spinning a red number less than 10
d. The probability of spinning an even black number
e. The expected total of green numbers in 57,000 spins

3. In a nationwide polls of 1,500 randomly selected U.S. residents, 77% said that they liked pizza. In a poll of 1,500 randomly selected U.S. residents one month later, 75% responded that they liked pizza.

a. Does the polling evidence support the claim that pizza declined in popularity over the month between polls? Explain why or why not.
b. Using statistical terminology, precisely identify the population parameter the two polls were attempting to measure. How does a parameter differ from a statistic?
c. Based on the two polls, what would you say to someone who guessed that the population parameter the polls are trying to measure is really only 50%?

4. Eleven people have eleven different favorite numbers from 2 to 12. They all agree to participate in a 10,000-roll dice game where they bet $1 on their favorite number for each roll of two standard (fair) dice. A donor kicks in an extra dollar every round, so the payoff if your number comes up is $12.

a. Assuming everyone bets on all 10,000 rounds, what is the expected value for a person who has number 7? (Show your calculations.)
b. Assuming everyone bets on all 10,000 rounds, what is the expected value for a person who has number 2? (Show your calculations.)

Any topic (writer’s choice)

There are a number of psychological instruments which are used to assess inmates in prison. Before you move on read the final project instructions this paper is one part of that process. Research a psychological test and describe the instrument, how that instrument is used in assessment, and determine if there are any biases in that instrument. In addition, this will be the instrument that you use to assist you in the decisions that you make with your final project. Use 4 resources.
