Each teacher candidate is required to gather resources and activities from the
Internet/other sources for teaching content through reading and language/arts in
elementary, depending on his/her certification area. Specific categories
must be addressed in this notebook that includes spelling, comprehension, vocabulary,
fluency, and assessment. Use strategies that cover a range of texts, which include journal entries, memoirs, poetry, fiction, nonfiction, persuasion, narrative, expository, etc.
You can use this page as an example. https://www.livebinders.com/play/play?tab_layout=topscroll&id=1596710
If you notice, this creator defined the category, then provided several strategies to help students and gave descriiptions of why they are helpful, which skills they promote, and which students it benefits (e.g. high achievers, general ed, dyslexic students, special ed, ELL, etc.).
(Professor)…If I were doing this project, here is exactly what I would do:
Make a PowerPoint
First slide: Cover Page
Second Slide: Present and define spelling
Next 3-5 slides: Spelling activities. Explain how it works, link any material needed, and describe which students each one benefits, from and how.
Next Slide: Present and define comprehension.
Next 3-5 slides: Comprehension activities. Explain how it works, link any material needed, and describe which students each one benefits, from and how.
Repeat this for all 5 categories
The last slide needs to be works cited citing all the works you used.

overview with the current development of machine learning and artificial intell

overview
with the current development of machine learning and artificial intelligence, artificial intelligence can explore forms and find meaning from bigdata sets without the interference of humans, machine learning turned the design problems into logical problems to be computed, there for, machine learning and artificial intelligence can be used to recognize the car model by giving it big data sets.
Theory
Using a simple deep learning network to classify images of cars, which is based on principal component analysis, that will be followed with a simple binary hashing to index, that is called principal component analysis network, this model had set new records to classification task, which will help to classification of car model.
Concepts / terms
Classification: is a process related to categorization, the process in which ideas and objects are recognized, differentiated and understood. Classification is the grouping of related facts into classes
Big data: refers to data sets that are too large or complex to be dealt with by traditional data-processing application software. Data with many fields offer greater statistical power, while data with higher complexity may lead to a higher false discovery rate. Big data analysis challenges include capturing data, data storage, data analysis, search, sharing, transfer, visualization, querying, updating, information privacy, and data source.
Machine learning: is a field of inquiry dedicated to understanding and building methods that ‘learn’, that is, methods that leverage data to improve performance on some set of tasks. It is seen as a part of artificial intelligence. Machine learning algorithms build a model based on sample data, known as training data, in order to make predictions or decisions without being explicitly programmed to do so
Artificial intelligence: is intelligence shown by machines, which is the opposite of the natural intelligence shown by animals and humans. Artificial intelligence has been defined as the field of study of intelligent, which refers to any system that perceives its setting and takes actions that exploit its chance of attaining its goals.
principal component analysis: a very known technique used for analysing big data sets which have a large number of dimensions or features, growing the interpretability of data while conserving the maximum amount of information, and allowing the visualization of multidimensional data.
Focus
The focus of the research will be modelling and understanding the principal component analysis, within the classification of car images to predict its model, the success of the research will reduce the reliance on human resources to identify the car model, which can be used in many instances such as identifying cars with fake number plate using number plate recognition and the issuing authority database of registered cars.

State of Issue X in Arizona, Due December 2:
Our goal in this assignment is to assess a public problem or challenge. In either a 4-5 page essay or a 2-3 minute video, explain in plain language why the challenge you selected is or should be understood and addressed as a public issue. Why should public resources be used to make and implement a solution to this challenge. Offer details that unpack the harm occurring or that will occur if we fail to address the issue you selected. Make those details concrete. For example, if you were talking about the state of Education in Arizona, you might report in your assessment that XX% of K-12 children report feeling hungry 3 or more times per week. Or, if you want to focus on the State of Household Financial Health in Arizona, you might point out that XX% of Arizona adults used some form of predatory lending service in the last 12 months. Finally, identify a non-government organization that is addressing the issue. Tell us who they are and how they are addressing the problem. Share information about their strategy – are they mobilizing voters, are they buying ads on news programs, are they penning op-eds to change public opinion, are they lobbying policy makers? Tell us if they inspire you, what your assessment is of their likelihood of success, and whether you would want to join them in the cause, or if you feel like “they got this” and your super powers are needed elsewhere.

How should you organize your 4-5 page essay or 2-3 minute video?
You might do something like this:
Page 1-2: Use this space to explain in plain language why the challenge you selected is or should be understood and addressed as a public issue. Also explain why public resources should be used to make and implement a solution to this challenge. Offer details that unpack the harm occurring or that will occur if we fail to address the issue you selected.
Page 3-4: Use this space to identify a non-government organization that is addressing the issue. You can make reference to a government, but make the non-government organization or interest group the center of attention in your analysis. Tell us who they are and how they are addressing the problem. Share information about their strategy – are they mobilizing voters, are they buying ads on news programs, are they penning op-eds to change public opinion, are they lobbying policy makers?
Page 4-5: Use this space to make things a bit more personal. Tell us why you are passionate about the issue. Does the non-government organization that you are featuring in your report inspire you? What is your assessment of their likelihood of success. Would want join them in the cause? Why or why not?
Whatever issue you decide to focus on for your performance, you might consider searching what ordinary people think on the matter. Here are some additional resources on public opinion surveys that may provide detailed, concrete information about policy attitudes.
1. A survey of Arizona voters that yours truly completed recently can be found here: https://clapr.asu.edu/Midterm2022
2. Here is another set of surveys that gives insights into how Black, Native American, AAPI, and Latino voters thought about issues this past election cycle. And, bonus, they have the option to drill down to specific states for some, but not all of these different groups: https://2022electionpoll.us/Links to an external site.
3. Here is one source that looks specifically at AAPI, and even gives menu options divided by issue areas, and includes ready-to-use charts that are amazing and high quality. One other strength is that they even summarize academic research into really easy-to-digest statements: https://aapidata.comLinks to an external site.
4. Here is another polling firm that has loads and loads of data on a bunch of different issues. They may also include some data on specific states, but I know for sure they ask about lots of different public policy issues. www.yougov.comLinks to an external site.
5. Another data source that covers climate change specifically is here: https://climatecommunication.yale.eduLinks to an external site.
6. There is of course, gallup, and here is the list of returns from what you get when you do a search of “arizona” from Gallup website: https://www.gallup.com/Search/Default.aspx?q=arizonaLinks to an external site.
7. You could do the same kind of search at Pew Research, NORC, and other companies know for surveying and public opinion.

These should be plenty to get you started

Writing a proposal is one of the most important skills learned in Technical Writ

Writing a proposal is one of the most important skills learned in Technical Writing. It allows for not only presentation, but also representation. The writer is creating a recommendation and a solution to a problem, and at the same time, they are establishing not only their own professionalism, but also defining their knowledge of the subject. In many cases this is an opportunity to take the stage in an environment otherwise unavailable, or at the very least step into the spotlight.

The first part of this assignment is to look into types of proposals, both internal and external, as well as the process of the RFP including solicited and unsolicited proposals: Real World examples are used from the annual ad spend process for General Motors on the New York Times, to scientific grants created to both encourage and foster detailed continued research for post-grads.

Next comes the deliverables, budget and requirements. The students are asked to read, define, comprehend and summarize what needs to be included in the proposal. In many cases this includes a schedule, network diagram or KPIs indicated in the RFP. Is there a component for comparison and analysis of multiple factors? The format of the requested proposal is also highlighted, as it is often, the first reason for denial. Is there information missing from the RFP, do you have questions you need answered before you proceed with this proposal? Finally, we take a look at, and consider, the audience to whom we are writing. Is this a review board?

The opportunity landscape is wide and varied. As important as deciding upon which grant to pursue is the research necessary to create a well presented proposal. The assignment includes persuasion, as the goal of the proposal is to have it accepted. The writer needs to establish without question their qualifications and experience. In that there is a heightened importance of knowing your audience.

Students are asked to project into a hypothetical future where they are both in the position and of a position that would require they write this proposal. In that position of positive empowerment, a fictional design, and a bit of a dream are encouraged.
I am studying finance and I plan on being a financial planner. PLEASE WRITE THIS AS YOU ARE ME PROPOSING TO BUY ANOTHER FINANCIAL FIRM.

CYB 200 Project Three Guidelines and Rubric
Overview
One of the three focus projects for this course is the creation of a technical brief based on research you’ve conducted. The audience for this brief is the
security/IT director for a fictional organization at which you are employed for the purposes of this assignment. This technical brief will serve as the basis for a
proactive adversarial detection plan that your director will be creating. The final product represents an authentic demonstration of competency because, as a
security analyst, you will need to be able to develop skills that employ a variety of methods and tools necessary to detect, characterize, and counter cyber threat
actors. Your work will contribute to larger team projects across your organization. This project will also help position you to cultivate an important mind-set:
thinking responsibly, proactively, and in terms of what threat actors would do to attack organizational assets.
The project incorporates one milestone, which will be submitted in Module Five. The project will be submitted in Module Seven.
In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course competency:
 CYB-200-02: Develop reliable, ethical methods to detect, characterize, and counter cyber threat actors
Scenario
In a course announcement, your instructor will provide you with some scenarios for you to choose from. You will situate yourself as the security analyst in one of
the provided scenarios, creating a technical brief that explains to the security/IT director how the situation informs the larger proactive adversarial detection
plan that he or she is writing for the organization. You do not require specific technical information from the system at hand, as the results or determinations are
supplied for you within the scenario. Rather, you should address each critical element in the Project Three prompt, speaking broadly to what your best-practice
tactics or methods would be, based on your research from the decision aid you completed as the milestone for this project. The Conclusion section of this
activity requires you to extrapolate on all the research you have done for the decision aid.

We acquire information in a variety of ways. Sometimes this takes the form of a formal educational program. Other times it might be in the form of a casual conversation or a professional conference. In this module, we will focus on the value of publications. The topic of interest is balanced scorecards and the publication is the Harvard Business Review.
A persistent problem with metrics is the tendency to reduce complex assessments to simple metrics. For example, your community hospital may post a digital sign by the roadside indicating the number of minutes new arrivals in the emergency department currently must wait to be seen; and perhaps this metric will suffice to assure you that this is a first-rate hospital. In financial reporting, something similar occurs when metrics related to net income and earnings per share are used to assess the overall performance of an entity. Many decry the dangers to society from an unbalanced overemphasis on reported income in the short term. However, efforts to discourage the practice of managing to achieve short-term profit performance appear to have done little to actually dampen this phenomenon. Recognizing the inevitability of “managing to the metrics,” some have proposed a different approach to the problem of an overemphasis on managing to achieve short-term profit performance. They have advocated creating several key metrics that are devised to assess different dimensions of performance where tension is present. In naming one such system the “balanced scorecard,” we detect from the name that scorekeeping and metrics play a central role in a system that seeks “balance.” This balance involves the tension between competing goals. While we all can create our own scorecards in whatever manner we like, the so-called balanced scorecard is a particular approach with its own vocabulary and literature.
To prepare for this discussion, make sure you have read the Harvard Business Review article assigned on the readings page. You may also want to read additional HBR articles on this topic. Many articles can be found and accessed through the McLeod Business Library.
For this forum, you should post a short write-up (350-550 words).
Your short write-up should focus on how a balanced scorecard could apply to your industry/company or a professional environment you aspire to understand better. What do you think of the balanced scorecard idea? Do you think it is just another initiative that will run its course and be forgotten or replaced by some new “flavor of the month?” What do you believe are the key issues to be addressed if the balanced scorecard is applied in the context you have selected? If there are problems, what solutions do you see? Have you worked in an organization that has adopted the balanced scorecard? Please do not include any information you consider to be proprietary, because others will see your post.
