  2. 2. Hofstede’s Cultural Dimensions Theory and Homework Time Management Zhang (Noah) Zhiguang, Zuola Village, ChengGuan Town, Gansu Province 747500 China (zhang.zhiguang.noah@gmail.com) G05 SHL1013 Professional English (12 November 2013) Background & Urgency of the Problem • On-time submission of homework in AIU vary among students • Homework is not always submitted on time • AiU students are from various cultures with various ways of time management • Previous methods to increase on-time homework submission have failed • Poor homework time management can affect academic performance Proposed Poster Design Six Simple Steps to Complete Your Homework Before Deadline How to Succeed as a Scholar and Enjoy Your Scholarship 1 7 4 Image Here Image Here Insert explanatory text here if any. Insert explanatory text here if any Statement of the Problem & Proposal Timeline & Implementation Strategy Main Image Here 2 Image Here In two weeks, I will submit an A3sized poster with 10 pictures showing 10 steps to increase on-time completion of homework. Insert explanatory text here if any. Insert explanatory text here if any • AiU students from various cultures can understand examples shown in pictures • Pictures can guide students in managing homework time • A poster display in each hostel room can improve the frequency of on-time homework completion and submission. • Hofstede’s cultural dimensions theory (Author, 0000) and the bottoms-up management principle (Author, 0000) can help increase the frequency of constantly clean hostel rooms.

Insert explanatory text here if any Theoretical Background Methodology • The theory of cultural dimenstions claims that blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah (Author, 0000, para. 00). • The principle of bottom-up management claims that innovations are more successful if these originate from the user majority (Author, 0000, para. 00). • This section contains a step-by-step instruction that others can follow to reproduce the same results. • The steps clearly show how the proposed poster’s contents and design were planned, selected, and arranged. For example: 1. The ten areas in a hostel room that requires most attention will be identified. 2. A five-step cleaning & arrangement guide is formulated to fit the needs of these ten areas. 3. The five-step guide is tested and revised with the help of 5 students with the dirtiest rooms. 4. Photographs are taken and used on a poster. 5. The poster is reproduced and posted in each hostel room. 6. An implementation schedule and names of checkers are posted beside each poster. 7. Penalties and rewards are added to the announcement. 8. . A weekly record will measure the frequency of cleanliness and order in each hostel room. Statement of the Thesis Theoretical Application Using principles in Hofstede’s cultural dimensions theory and the bottoms-up management principle to design, distribute, and implement a visual poster guide can increase the frequency ontime homework completion in AIU by 100% in less than 30 days. • In Week 2, the socialization stage, program goals can be explained and submitted for approval by AIU students who are considered as influencers (Author, 0000, para. 00). • Benefits can help convince the influencers to distribute the posters (Week 3) and to implement the program (Week 4) (Author, 0000, para. 00). • • • • Week 1: Design and production of posters Week 2: Socialization of program goals Week 3: Poster distribution Week 4: Implementation Projected Challenges & Solutions • Credibility Gaps – Some influencers may not be credible to some groups of students. Solution: Seek student solutions to address this problem (Author, 0000, para. 00). • Recidivism – Some students may revert to old habits or cultural standards that negate the program goals. Solution: Seek student solutions to strengthen implementation methods & standards (Buthor, 0000, para. 00). References Author, A. A. (0000). :Complete Title of the Article, para. 00.

  45. 45. Memorandum of Transmittal • “I” focuses on the writer. It can sound selfcentered instead of readercentered. • For a neutral focus, you can use “This is to submit/request/i nform...” • For a readerbenefit focus, you can say “You may be pleased to see that.... • You will not use this phrase if you consider that the reader might have other duties and responsibilities. This might be considered demanding; try and use a neutral phrase. The first sentence is good because it is related to the topic of the email. The second sentence seems not connected to the topic of the email, so it sounds fake, contrived, or insincere. • Some readers disagree with “please find” as being inexact or inaccurate as in “find something hidden or missing”. • You could say “the attached files include...” This can imply a degree earned, usually after graduation. For now, use Business Administration Scholar. • You can use the “you” to begin the sentence and achieve a reader-focused language.
