Choose a Subject First, as with any essay, you need to choose a subject that lends well to spatial organization. Brainstorm Using a Diagramming Activity You can brainstorm any number of ways, but for spatial order essays, some type of diagramming also known as clustering, bubbling, webbing or mapping activity is most effective.
Construct an Outline After fleshing out your diagram, construct an outline for your essay. Construct Body Paragraphs Finally, it's time to write your body paragraphs.

How to Introduce Essay Writing. This pattern is marked by such transitions as next, then, the following morning, a few hours later, still later, that Wednesday, by noon, when she was seventeen, before the sun rose, that April , and so on.
Chronological order can suit different rhetorical modes or patterns of exposition. It naturally fits in narration, because when we tell a story, we usually follow the order in which events occur.
Chronological order applies to process in the same way, because when we describe or explain how something happens or works, we usually follow the order in which the events occur. But chronological order may also apply to example, description, or parts of any other pattern of exposition.
Another principle of organization is spatial order. In this pattern, items are arranged according to their physical position or relationships. In describing a shelf or desk, I might describe items on the left first, then move gradually toward the right. Describing a room, I might start with what I see as I enter the door, then what I see as I step to the middle of the room, and finally the far side.
In explaining some political or social problem, I might discuss first the concerns of the East Coast, then those of the Midwest, then those of the West Coast. Describing a person, I might start at the feet and move up to the head, or just the other way around. This pattern might use such transitions as just to the right, a little further on, to the south of Memphis, a few feet behind, in New Mexico, turning left on the pathway , and so on.
Spatial order is pretty common in description, but can also apply to examples, to some comparisons, some classifications [the southern species of this bird.
A third common principle of organization is climactic order or order of importance. In this pattern, items are arranged from least important to most important. Typical transitions would include more important, most difficult, still harder, by far the most expensive, even more damaging, worse yet, and so on. A variation of climactic order is called psychological order. This pattern or organization grows from our learning that readers or listeners usually give most attention to what comes at the beginning and the end, and least attention to what is in the middle.
In this pattern, then, you decide what is most important and put it at the beginning or the end; next you choose what is second most important and put it at the end or the beginning whichever remains ; the less important or powerful items are then arranged in the middle.
If the order of importance followed 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, with 5 being most important, psychological order might follow the order 4, 3, 1, 2, 5. Still other principles of organization based on emphasis include general-to-specific order , specific-to general order , most-familiar-to-least-familiar , simplest-to-most-complex , order of frequency , order of familiarity , and so on.
A fourth broad principle of organization is called topical order , and this is sort of a catchall pattern. It refers to organization that emerges from the topic itself. For example, a description of a computer might naturally involve the separate components of the central processing unit, the monitor, and the keyboard, while a discussion of a computer purchase might discuss needs, products, vendors, and service.
A discussion of a business might explore product, customer, and location, and so on. Topical order, then, simply means an order that arises from the nature of the topic itself.
I'm not sure any single list can identify all of the different logical ways of organizing information. You may have forms in your workplace that impose a certain order on how an event or action is reported. However, many do not agree with this opinion Conway and oenisch 9. According to Britannica Encyclopedia, architecture is "the art and technique of designing and building" "architecture" whose practice "is employed to fulfill both practical and expressive requirements, and thus it serves both utilitarian and aesthetic ends" "architecture".
Therefore, every society has a spatial connection to the natural world. The sort of architecture and the produced structures reflects history, culture, environment, traditions, ceremonies, customs and artistic sensibility of a society "architecture".
Buildings keep people warm and dry and are directly involved in the reasonableness and feasibility of living. Globalization Has Become a Ubiquitously Word in. Globalization has become a ubiquitously word in the last few decades. Much of the globalization trend is driven by the fact that many organizations operate internationally and supply chains have become sophisticated, complex, and spans the entire globe.
As a result of globalization, many organizations have tried to proactively create a level of homogenization and standardization internationally of markets, resources, and labor. It can also help to develop the local economy at it is working to create more middle class citizens in developing countries. Yet, the results are deeply mixed and often the result of newly introduced capitalism further stratifies the society.
Therefore, even though the trend has been primarily measured by economic activities it also has had many other consequences as well in regards to social and political issues. Globalization and…… [Read More].
There are various complexities that affect the way that astronomy is taught, not the least of which is the enormity of scale that space science involves. One of the basic requirements for understanding astronomy is coming to terms with the vastness of the universe.
For example, a basic unit of astronomical measurement is the light year. Merriam-ebster defines the light year as "a unit of length in astronomy equal to the distance that light travels in one year in a vacuum or about 5. Moreover, trying to convey the reality of light traveling at the unimaginably fast speed of , kilometers per second , miles per second is indeed mind-boggling.
Even at such amazing speeds, light takes years to…… [Read More]. The Chinese saw Canada as a place for new and prosperous opportunities in order to send money and goods back to their relatives in China. Voyagers from Hong Kong to Canada would take three weeks on water. Often they left China after being poverty or destitution. From the 's up till the 's the kind of labor the Chinese were involved in was the raw work of a beginning industrial economy.
The Chinese workers were either semiskilled or skilled and worked in the British Columbia salmon canneries and sawmills. The Chinese immigrants who were unskilled, typically found work in the laundry trade. Before the 's however, Chinese…… [Read More]. Indian Art In what ways are the form and function of the Buddhist stupa and Hindu temple similar to or different from the Islamic mosque? Their physical forms are more similar than they are different, in that each boasts tapered and often rounded edifices.
However, Hindu temples are more likely to have angular features and involve the use of straight lines and parallel planes; both stupas and mosques prefer curvilinear elements and bulbous forms. Hindu temples and Muslim mosques will also have larger interior spaces devote to personal prayer. In what ways may the Quwwat al-Islam Mosque in Delhi be considered an Islamic ate building and an Indic one in terms of its construction and its design? Yet, the naive assumption that is being made is that Latin Americans and North Americans operate and manage exclusively -- i.
What Davila shows is that instructors are not attuned to the facts that scholars have uncovered -- namely that "the intimate and the economic and business realms are never mutually exclusive or in direct opposition to each other and that capital always draws strength from and reproduces itself through close-knit relations" p. The main components of this argument are that: Mind and Human Behavior Theories.
Mind and Human Behavior Define and discuss a particular theory of consciousness Consciousness can be best grasped in context as a facet of an interactive wakeful state wherein most cognitive processing occurs non-consciously.
However, on combining non-conscious and conscious processing in the wakeful state, how can we differentiate one from the other, how can consciousness be defined, and what purpose does it serve? The conclusions drawn with respect to the former question critically influence how the latter question is answered. What property makes a state non-conscious rather than conscious? This section will support the argument that, out of all possible answers commonly put forth i.
The Quantum Theory of Consciousness The consciousness issue has opposed traditional approaches, in which the human brain is perceived as a computer…… [Read More]. Environmental Systems in the Past. Although the research tools provided by the ISO framework are both qualitative and quantitative, this approach is consistent with the guidance provided by Neuman who points out that, "Both qualitative and quantitative research use several specific research techniques e.
Most qualitative-style researchers examine qualitative data and vice versa" p. Indeed, researchers have used qualitative and quantitative surveys to assess consumer reactions to proposed environmental initiatives at the local level Neuman, In fact, quantitative and qualitative research methods are characterized by a number of similarities that lend themselves to environmental systems analyses and development as well as some differences Neuman, The distinct differences in the qualitative and quantitative research suggest that the use of quantitative data for environmental system development is highly appropriate, but that such…… [Read More].
Are Video Games Art. Pervasive Video Games as Art The form and function of art has evolved and changed quite a bit over the years, decades and millennia.
Paintings and sculpture have been artistic mainstays for much to most of the world of the civilized human race. However, with the technological revolution that has roared up over the last fifty years or so, new forms of art have bubbled to the proverbial surface. Digital technology has enhanced prior forms of art e such as photography.
Beyond that, completely brand new forms have art have been created and the latter is what this report is assessing in the form of pervasive video games. The depth and breadth of this art and the effects it has on its users and fans when done will are worthy of massive study and analysis both in this report and elsewhere. Sensory Systems Involved in Visual. Fluctuations in expectation may be described by a model that actually calculates expectation using a weighted combination of new and old information.
According to this model, when the probability of a target's appearance changes abruptly, a smooth change occurs that encodes prior probability. The experience-based techniques employed that are used to predict probability of the appearance of a stimulus requires that certain pieces of information are held in storage over several trials, which requires an additional number of neurons for the process. Changes in expectation…… [Read More].
Cognition the Case Against Core. Instead, spatial reasoning appears to be based on environmental inputs and old-fashioned cognitive development. Why this should come as such a surprise to some researchers is uncertain. Core knowledge theorists claim that infants almost immediately express certain types of knowledge.
But this suggestion assumes two things: On the matter of the former point, it seems apparent that logistical and ethical concerns would make it exceedingly difficult, if not outright impossible, to test infant cognition immediately after birth. With regards to the second issue, we already have evidence that infants are capable of basic learning while still in the womb. Though developmentally unfinished, the basic sensory organs that the fetus develops permit it to learn information about its environment.
Lecuyer reminds us that it…… [Read More]. In this research, we looked at three different types of short-term memory, the visual-spatial dimension, verbal and numerical.
We examined some correlations between improved memory and video game usage. However, not all of the null hypotheses were confirmed in this study, meaning that there is room for future study. This, therefore, would be one avenue for future study that has been opened up.
This study contributes to the growing body of knowledge with respect to the influence that…… [Read More]. Perception Research Into Aspects of. The results of this study found that some negative bias towards a patient's socioeconomic standing -- particularly from less-experienced dental students -- can result in "differential treatment" e.
But by "heightening awareness" of potential biases that are based on accent or perceived lower socioeconomic status, or on racism among dental students, through educational initiatives, stereotyping and bias can be reduced if not eliminated Carson, Another suggestion Carson, in terms of ensuring the quality of treatment is to "inhibit social categorical thinking.

Forestry-Sudden Oak Death Analysis and. For example, temperature has been found be related to structural aspects of the landscape such as overstorey canopy, The central hypothesis that was tested was that, " Findings In general it as found that landscape-scale configuration as well as local composition of host habitats are both linked to the degree of destructiveness of the disease.
The result showed that the structure and composition of the forest or woodland was severely affected by the disease, which in turn had a serious effect on both host and pathogen. Third World Cities Development. Bazaar City Extraordinaire Few people can imagine India without calling to mind its vast cultural, spiritual, and natural splendor. So, too, few non-Indian's can bring to mind the nation without imagining sprawling squalor, chaos to the western mind , and the history of Gandhi.
However, there is much more to India today that few non-Indians understand -- that is that the nation, once one of the most disadvantaged in the world, is now rising as one of the nations "most likely to succeed" educationally, economically, as well as politically.
New Delhi, the capital of modern India is an excellent representation of India as a whole. Sprawling over the Yamuna River, it has long held great governmental, political, and historical importance as the "seat of power" of several dynasties over the centuries. However, just where it "fits in" in the "taxonomy of cities," referred to in the work, "hat is…… [Read More]. Human Memory Organization Has Been.
This tested their temporal memory. Additionally, subjects were asked whether or not the test stimuli and the study stimuli were the same or different in location, which tested their spatial memory organization.
Interference and non-interference tasks were combined with the memory tasks. The study showed that while memory for temporal information was impaired by some interference tasks, the spatial organization task was not. The conclusion of the data supported the idea that temporal and spatial memory organization are different, in that each task is made more difficult through the use of different interference. This data suggests that the memory organizational structures are different Halbig, Another study by Smith showed similar results, using brain imaging information.
In this study, subjects were asked to perform a memory tasks while simultaneously verifying equations. While the subjects performed the tasks, positron emission tomography scans were taken.
When the two tasks were done…… [Read More]. Pedagogic Grammar Written and Spoken. The concept of 'communicative competence" Caldwell, is described as grammar that "relates to the nature of language teaching" in an approach.
It is suggested by Tomlin , pp. Image Enhancement Techniques Research shows that out of the five senses which are hearing, smell, sight, touch, and taste -- which humans utilize to observe their environment, sight is the most influential Jeong, Analyzing images and getting them really does form a huge part of the unchanging cerebral activity of human beings during the course of their lives. In today's communications system it is vital to recognize that the multimedia is an area that is continually increasing.
Basically, it is a field that is growing more and more each day. Many are starting to see the various avenues that a person can go into when it comes to image enhancement techniques. There used to be an era when the options were very limited, but now…… [Read More]. Store Design Has Been at the Forefront. Store design has been at the forefront of marketing strategies for many years. Marketing professionals use store design to create an ambiance that creates an environment that compels people to purchase certain products or services.
The purpose of this discussion is to explain how public space affects people. For the purposes of this discussion we will focus on the store design of Starbucks. Our investigation will discuss the moods, feelings and ideas that the atmosphere presents to the customers. Finally, we will discuss the type of people that may frequent a Starbucks coffee shop.
Let's begin our discussion by explaining some of the history behind the concept of store design. Store Design Some of the first experiments with store design occurred in grocery stores. According to a book entitled, The American Grocery Store: Marketing Dangerously Christopher Meyer Argues. CEOs, however, would most likely argue that they are invaluable to their companies, and are adequately compensated for the work they do.
In accomplishing this goal, they have done well. Both employees who are frustrated at the lifestyle that their CEOs are able to live while they struggle to get by and CEOs who are making hundreds of dollars an hour would be able to understand the rational for each side in this argument.
By presenting the argument in this non-biased formula, the authors invite discussion on the topic, a discussion that most likely would not have happened if this type of presentation has been achieved. In allowing for an open…… [Read More]. Forest Fire Management Systems and. It was then important to see the degree at which technology and training played a role in combating each fire. The reasoning behind such a study is born out of a need to provide better training for fire fighters so that fire management systems will improve and reduce the amount of loss due to the fire.
By studying such a topic, one can gain the knowledge of how to better train fire fighters and how to make his or her job safer in the process. This in turn, results in reduced losses due to the fire. This also results in higher service ratings for the fire department and an increase in morale for the community. It has already become a general knowledge that the majority of forest and…… [Read More].
Persuading That Listening to Music. Many studies and a wide array of empirical evidence supports the hypothesis that music improves the academic performance and test scores of children, including those in Middle and High School, but certainly also including Elementary and College students.
These benefits may occur because of the increased activity in the temporal and left-frontal areas of the brain that have been observed during exposure to music, or because music brings "cohesion" to already existing background noise. Costa-Giomi Regardless of the root cause of why…… [Read More].

GIS applications enable creation of interactive queries, analysis and editing and then present results. This is beneficial in management of disasters. Disaster management signifies preparedness involving a chain of measures incorporating disaster prevention, emergency response as well as reconstruction.
Many organizations federal, state and non-governmental as well as businesses, public health benefit from GIS technology. OGC divides GIS products or software into two categories, compliant and implementing products, based on their level of compatibility with OGC specifications, which aid them in communication.
