Memory assists us in all we do. The basic elements of memory are encoding, storage, and retrieval. Memories are broken down into short-term and long-term at the most foundational level. However, other concepts are important to memory, such as the use of your senses, sleeping, experience, and the brain.
As a student investigator, consider all the elements of memory with this article:
Title: Memory Puzzle: What every investigator should know.
By: Fitch, Brian D. FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin. Jan2015, p1-5. 5p. Reading Level (Lexile): 1370.
Damage to Memory
Memories are an important part of the human experience. Damage to the brain can cause interruption of memories in a variety of ways. Damage to the hippocampus, traumatic brain injuries, and excessive alcohol abuse are just some of the ways memory can be damaged.
Tests of Memory
Three neuropsychological tests of memory allow for consideration of the various types of memory that exist within an individual, each of varying importance and suggesting a different area responsible for the execution of the memory task. Use of the tests can pinpoint particular memory problems, from which a plan of action can be created. These tests include: Recency memory task, Corsi block-tapping task, and the Mirror-drawing task.
Review the following article for consideration of improving memory:
Title: 5 simple tricks to sharpen thinking and memory skills.

Part I: The Assignment
7-9 pages (title page and references do not count)
Times New Roman, 12-point, double spaced, 1 Inch margins
Title page with prompt number
Part II: Advice and pitfalls from previous essays
THESIS STATEMENTS! Your introductory paragraph should preview your argument. This is not a work of fiction that will have a twist in the end. The reader should know what your answer to the prompt is by the end of the introduction.
Papers that do not have strong thesis statements tended to be much more descriptive, as discussions of the readings did not seem to support an overarching argument.
A thesis should be a statement with which a reasonable person can disagree. A weak thesis statement might be ‘John Locke and Thomas Hobbes had differing views of the state of nature’. A stronger thesis will articulate how those views resulted in different goals and forms for the commonwealth. A thesis statement can be more than one sentence.
It is often a good idea to talk about both authors in the same paragraph. Sometimes talking about only one leads to descriptions more than analysis. Focus on a theme and use both authors to address it if possible.
Be careful though, about paragraph length. Some paragraphs were very long. Please consider breaking up paragraphs that are longer than a page.
Block quotes should be used sparingly (more than two in a paper of this length is probably too many). When using a block quote, please put that quote in single space, indented on the left hand side (see APA style guidelines). You do not need to include quotation marks in block quotes.
Don’t (or, do not) use contractions in academic writing.
Write an essay comparing Rousseau with Hobbes with respect to the state of nature and social contract. What similarities and differences exist within their projects and where do they come from? Why does Rousseau find Hobbes to be inadequate?
Email continues to be the most common type of written communication in most businesses. You can
follow a variety of principles to use it effectively: (1) use it for the right purposes, (2) ensure ease of
reading, (3) show respect for others’ time, (4) protect the privacy and confidentiality of others, (5) respond
promptly, (6) maintain professionalism and appropriate formality, (7) manage emotion effectively, and (8)
Typically, as you write an email message, you should do the following: (1) provide a short, descriptive
subject line, (2) use greetings and closings effectively, (3) keep your message brief yet complete, (4)
clearly identify expected actions, (5) provide a descriptive and professional signature block, and (6) use
Routine messages should be direct and front-loaded. The primary message should have 10 words or
fewer, and you should typically place it in the subject line of your email to immediately capture attention.
Furthermore, the primary message should appear in the first or second sentence of the message and
again in the closing if your message is several paragraphs long. Best to use headings if several main
In the body of the routine message, you should provide short paragraphs with related details. To make
sure your message receiver will comply, include all needed information. As you draft the message, aim for
a helpful, professional, and reader-centered tone. Focus on making the message easy to read. Readers
expect to understand your primary message in less than 10 to 15 seconds, so use short sentences and
paragraphs. Paragraphs should generally be between 20 and 80 words. Design your message so that
readers can find information in just moments. Use headings, bullets, numbering, special formatting, and
external links to relevant information to highlight key ideas.
Read the case below and complete the instructions that follow.
Haniz Zogby is a marketing specialist at Ingram Publishing, and Jaclyn Peha is a technology intern. Haniz
and Jaclyn recently met about making changes to the website. Haniz thought the conversation went well
and they reached some agreements about how to proceed. Jaclyn, on the other hand, thought she was
not given a fair chance to express some of her ideas and feels that Haniz dominated the conversation
and did not allow her to express her ideas. She thinks the plan to develop the website is incomplete
because it does not involve the integration of social media. Jaclyn is just an intern and Haniz technically is
not her boss, but he is the lead person on the project. She wrote a late-night angry email to Haniz with
her complaints. Now Haniz wants to resolve an uncomfortable situation with Jaclyn and make progress
on improving the website.
Note: Scenario reprinted with permission from McGraw-Hill.
Signature Assignment: Case: Handling an Angry Email
Assuming the role of Haniz, write an email (of no more than 700 words) to your senior project manager
(not to Jaclyn) who also oversees Jaclyn’s internship. Address the following in your email:
Explain the situation in the message of the email and the type of incivility (passive or active) you
observed from Jaclyn.
Compare and contrast spoken versus written communication and assess the most effective
communication methods to handle an emotionally charged email. (must use outside reference
Recommendation – how you and Jaclyn could build and maintain a working relationship by using
reinterpretation in response to the angry email.
Write a Conclusion paragraph addressing the effectiveness of the communication processes
used to achieve organizational goals and suggest a plan to defuse the situation and resolve any
differences to remove the tension and move forward.
Format your business email with a descriptive subject line, greeting, message (with headings for each
main topic) , conclusion, pleasant closing, and a complete professional signature block. Use correct
grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. Use the bold words above in your headings (readability).
This is not just a student opinion paper – must use a credible, published source on business
communication – akso cite/refernce(s).
MBA Business Plan component
One of the most important elements in a business plan is the market analysis. A market analysis is a qualitative and quantitative assessment of a market. It includes data collection and estimation in reference to the market size and value, characteristics of the intended customer base, in-depth evaluation of the competition, barriers to entry, and the regulatory environment. An accurate and detailed market analysis allows entrepreneurs to determine whether the market is sufficiently large to build a sustainable, profitable business. In this assignment, you will complete a market analysis for your proposed organization and create a report that can be included within a business plan.
Write a 525-word report that includes the following sections:
- Section 1: Business overview, mission, and vision
- Section 2: A Market analysis that includes the following components:
- Market overview/needs analysis
- Target market
- Competitive analysis
- Value proposition
- Section 3: Recommendation
- Use the Market Analysis Research document for details on what to include in each section.
Cite references to support your assignment.
Format your citations according to APA guidelines.

For this assignment, you will write a case study analysis that focuses on the communication strategy of an organization of your choice.
In this assignment, you will need to a) summarize the communication strategy of your chosen organization, b) analyze the communication strategy of your chosen organization, and c) explain how you would integrate the communication strategy into the current organization where you work or into a former organization where you have worked.
A. Summarize the Communication Strategy
Locate an article that discusses the communication strategies used by your chosen organization. After reading your chosen article, you may find the exercise below to be helpful in developing a summary paragraph. Identify the author(s) of your chosen article, and complete the following exercise:
[Insert author’s name here] discusses how innovative communication processes have helped [insert name of the organization here] resolve [insert issue here].
The top reason [insert author’s name here] holds that position is __________.
A second reason [insert author’s name here] holds that position is __________.
A third reason [insert author’s name here] holds that position is __________.
After filling in the blanks, you should have a list of the positions and claims made by the authors about your chosen organization. Shape your notes into a summary paragraph. (Do not simply include the list that you completed in the exercise above.)
Remember that the summary paragraph is where you will present information from the source. You will provide your analysis and interpretation in the following section of the paper.
B. Analyze the Communication Strategy
Be sure to include how the communication strategy impacts the organization on multiple levels. Feel free to use the four levels of sales, services, value chain, and continuous improvement as a model, which was discussed in the case study on the Dell Computer Corporation in the Unit VI Lesson. (Note: Your categories may be different.)
In the analysis portion of the assignment, discuss any problems (or potential problems) with the communications in your chosen organization, and provide potential solutions based on your research. Include ways that effective management could help to provide a solution.
C. Explain Integration Techniques
Finally, explain how this communication strategy could be integrated into your current or former workplace.
You will need to reference at least two academic sources.
Use the standard five-paragraph format (introduction/body/conclusion). APA format should be used. The assignment should be a minimum of three pages in length. Content, organization, and grammar/mechanics will be evaluated.
The clinical field experience in this course must take place in a K-3 setting.
Allocate at least 5 hours in the field to support this assignment.
Review the benchmark assignment, “Small Group Assessment Plan” in Topic 5, as you will use this field experience to inform Part 1 of that assignment.
In this field experience, continue to observe the class. With your mentor teacher, select a small diverse group of 4-6 students (include at least one student with exceptionalities) and determine an academic area in which to assess them.
Select a technology-based assessment to use with these students. Your assessment should be a developmentally appropriate and engaging activity or game that will quickly assess the students’ present levels in the selected area. It may be professionally produced, self-created, or pre-created by your mentor teacher. Implement the assessment to establish the students’ current levels of performance in the academic area you chose to assess.
For your technological device, you may choose to use an interactive white board, tablet, computer, augmentative communication device, or any other form of technology found in your classroom for this assignment. You are also encouraged to differentiate the assessment to meet individual student needs, as applicable for the students in the group.
In 250-500 words, summarize your developmentally appropriate and engaging technology-based assessment choices and rationalize how your choices meet the needs of students in your small group. Be sure to explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.
If technology is not available, create an alternative pre-assessment to implement. In addition, identify and rationalize technology that could be an appropriate support for the students identified as well as the school or district representative that supports technology to obtain tech support to meet specific student needs in the classroom.
