  • I’ve personally never heard of companies who can produce a paper for you until word got around among my college groupmates. My professor asked me to write a research paper based on a field I have no idea about. My research skills are also very poor. So, I thought I’d give it a try. I chose a writer who matched my writing style and fulfilled every requirement I proposed. I turned my paper in and I actually got a good grade. I highly recommend ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐

  11. 11.

  13. 13. Early Childhood Language Development <ul><li>Encode and maintain a phonological representation of the novel word </li></ul><ul><li>Extract clues from the semantic, syntactic, and pictorial contexts to constrain memory search for potential meanings in the case of learning synonyms for known referents and to facilitate the inferential process </li></ul><ul><li>Select or construct a potentially appropriate meaning; </li></ul><ul><li>Associate the inferred meaning with the phonological representation of the novel word; </li></ul><ul><li>Integrate and store the new knowledge with the existing knowledge base. </li></ul>

  18. 18. Don’ts of Storytelling <ul><li>Don’t read to your audience. Give them your attention. Make it your story and tell it. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t memorize only the general ideas.

Don’t add explanations, apologies, or afterthoughts after you have reached your conclusion. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Do’s of Storytelling <ul><li>Write down the complete story with all the extras and become so familiar with it that it is a part of you. </li></ul><ul><li>Then live the story! Tell it from your heart, with expression! </li></ul>
