You are the site’s Campus Employee Experience Coordinator and the client is requesting your help with their attendance challenge. This task needs to be addressed by next week. You will need to come up with a plan and list of action items to assist operation leaders. There is an additional $250 USD budget available for this event, as it was not foreseen in the budget forecast. We are anticipating a headcount of 325 employees in total.
Outside of the following guidelines, you have complete autonomy to both design and administer the event:
No time off the phones/computers are allowed. We encourage employees to participate during breaks/lunch, and before/after their shift.
As mentioned, you have $250 USD to spend.
The event will happen on Tuesday the 24th.
A brief description of the event you created.
A detailed plan, start to finish, of the event. For example:
What equipment, product and materials are needed for the event.
Event start and end time.
Why do you think this event will help improve attendance (reduce absenteeism).
This study builds on many other works as the Labovian model is now frequently used to assess narratology in children, (see Kernan, 1977; Eaton, Collis and Lewis, 1999). The idea of linguistic and narrative development in children is also a popular issue. One study that specifically charts the evolution of child narrative with age is “Telling stories of experiences: Narrative development of young Chinese children” a study by Chien-JuChang in which young Chinese children were visited in their homes at age 3 years and 6 months and then at 3 month intervals for the next 9 months. Their individual development in three key areas (narrative structure, evaluation, and temporality) was evaluated with the conclusion that “Chinese children, generally speaking, include more narrative components, evaluative information, and temporal markers in their narratives over time. However, the growth patterns and rates of change for each child on each narrative measure vary.” Hypothesis: My hypothesis is that as a child is introduced to more narrative texts, and comes to identify narrative components, that he or she will employ them more frequently and more readily in their own narratives. Thus, I hypothesise that there will be a marked increase both in the inclusion of these features in individual narratives and in the cohesion between the narratives of the evaluated children (their similarity to each other) in the older age ranges, as they adapt and adhere to literary and narrative norms. I believe that there will be a greater proliferation of linguistic devices and conventions, as well as more narrative components, in the older children’s narratives. Although I will not specifically be studying the effects of ethnicity or socio-economic background I believe that these factors will skew the data slightly as my hypothesis centres on the fact that the children will have been exposed to similar volumes and types of narrative material. This may well not be the case for pupils from a different cultural background or a less affluent family environment. Data: The data I will use for this investigation will be collected from local and, hopefully, schools which are more widely distributed throughout the country, to give a representative sample of empirical data. I will approach the schools to provide short texts from every early years age group so that I have approximately 50-100 short texts from pupils aged from 4 to 7 with a similar number for each age group. I will specify that I would like work from a cross section of abilities, genders, ethnicities, and socio-economic and cultural backgrounds so as to have a representative sample of narratives for an age range. I will also request that the gender, ethnicity and socio-economic group be specified for each child included in the study as, although I am not directly studying the consequences of these factors on the narratives, it would be informative and useful to see if they affect the cohesion of the data in any way.>GET ANSWER
