reading Ch 1 file (Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners The SIOP® Model by Jana Echevarría, Maryellen Vogt, Deborah Short )Keep in mind that responses should be written in one’s own words and be approximately one-paragraph long. The response should extend, discuss or build on the course readings and citations should be used to indicate information that comes from the text. Responses should also be free of errors to ensure that other students can understand the response. Please make sure to review your responses to ensure that your response is thoughtful and free of any language that could be offensive to others. Very brief entries that only state “I agree” or “I disagree” without any further explanation will not be sufficient and will not receive credit. Responses that only draw on personal experience and are not connected to the course readings will only receive partial credit. Discussion Board #1 prompt:For this module, we have learned different types of English learner program models. For this discussion board please answer the following question:How would you characterize the types of instruction offered to English learners in your school or in schools you know: traditional ESL, content-based ESL, sheltered content, bilingual content, traditional content, dual language, or others? Provide evidence of your characterization in terms of curricula and instruction. Are the English learners successful when they exit English language support programs and are placed in regular classrooms without support? Explain.

A leverage ratio is any one of several financial measurements that look at how much capital a firm holds in relation to its total assets. For our purposes, we define the bank’s leverage ratio as equity capital divided by total assets. Go to the St. Louis Federal Reserve FRED database, and find data on assets fewer liabilities, i.e. bank capital (RALACBM027SBOG), and total assets of commercial banks(TLAACBM027SBOG). Starting in January 1995 until December 2018, calculate the bank leverage ratio and create a line graph of the leverage ratio over this sample (include the graph you created with your submission). Given the path of bank leverage over time, what can you conclude about moral hazard in the banking system over the time period considered? Just to show how nebulous is the definition of the leverage ratio, the inverse of this ratio is also called a leverage ratio in other contexts.
by late 2009, Greece’s national debt had grown so large relative to the size of its economy that lenders had lost confidence in the Greek government’s capacity to service it. Fear of a Greek default led to contagion – Spain, Italy, Portugal, and Ireland were all subject to the disapproving glare of frightened lenders. The crisis caused seismic disruption in Europe and the rest of the world. The International Monetary Fund, the European Commission, and the European Central Bank reluctantly offered Greece bail-out loans – but with strings attached. In order to get the money, Greece had to agree to austerity measures. In this context, austerity means tight fiscal policy – that is, higher taxes and/or lower government spending in order to shrink Greece’s annual budget deficit. Using your knowledge of the impact of the government’s budget on the equilibrium level of real GDP, and your understanding of the effect of the economy on the state of the government’s budget, explain why austerity measures usually result in less improvement in the government’s budget position than policymakers had hoped for. Be sure to define what we mean by “the government’s budget”. Grading Rubric; The table below shows the criteria your essay will be judged against. I expect two to three paragraphs, double – spaced. your essay will be assessed as either “Meets expectations’ or “needs improvement” on each of the criteria in the table below. If your essay meets expectations on three of the four criteria, your score will be 75%, etcetera.

Production & Costs Discussion The theory of the firm seeks to understand what motivates firms to make the operating decisions that they do. Focusing on production and costs (the cost of producing a given quantity of output), provides the necessary background information to do that. Assignment Objective Explain diminishing returns/relationship between average total cost and marginal cost using a real-world explain. Differentiate between the three types of cost. Directions Pick ONE of the three options… Option 1: What do economists mean by diminishing returns to an input? What causes diminishing returns? Have you ever observed this principle at work in a job youve had? Describe how youve experienced this concept in the real world.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcUOIZF5CRQ&feature=youtu.be In the video shown, the actual President of the United States claimed that the drug abuse of opioids has to be ended. Please answer the following questions: 1. What are the differences between the application of strict enforcement against the drug abuse on the supply side and the demand side of the market of opioids? 2. Which measures mentioned in the video would affect the demand side of the market; which are those that will be impacting the supply side? 3. What is the U.S. history of the war on drugs (in general): decreasing demand or decreasing supply up to the present. (Mention different government administrations) 4.

(Shift first the demand and keep the supply fixed. Then in other graph shift the demand and set the supply fixed). 5. Imagine that you are an economist working as a policymaker at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. You have to use your economic analysis to provide a good support recommendation.
