Review of Related Literature The citizen of the modern world could not afford to be ignorant of Mathematics because the world is highly mathematical Betz as cited by Salazar, Hence, effective Mathematics instruction has become the absolute necessity in all levels of education. Despite explaining the importance of Mathematics, the students of today still have that negative attitudes toward the subject Salazar,
Make initial contacts Initial contacts must be made to solicit the involvement of insiders required by Action Research. These people will hopefully do three things: They may also advise on finding resources, particularly funding for the research.
Careful thought must go into choosing the 4 to 6 people initially contacted. They should be representative of the community of interest, have a good working knowledge of the domain, and, if possible, be well-connected and respected by their colleagues.
It is also necessary for them to be sympathetic to the research ideals and have the time to interact with the researcher. Unless the researcher's reputation is of sufficient stature, or the case for the research project overwhelming, it will be difficult to elicit the participation of busy decision-makers immediately.
For this reason, there are two strategies that may prove useful. First, personally-known contacts can be tapped to provide assistance.
If they are in the domain, so much the better; if not, they may provide personal links to those that are. Personal relations are definitely superior to 'cold calls' to strangers, although such calls may be necessary.
Second, try to locate those people who have expressed a concern about, or are already working on, the particular problem of interest. They may not have the influence or resources needed, but they will probably have the inclination to participate. If they can't spare the time, they may be able to suggest someone who can.
Communication with these first contacts will be one-to-one with the researcher, by telephone unless face-to-face meetings can be arranged, with subsequent follow-up in written correspondence mainly via e-mail. A summary of feedback should be written up by the researcher at this point, and distributed to these first contacts.
It is possible that some of them will become members of the design team. Create website The Internet is proving to be an excellent communication tool for facilitating group processes, and one of the best ways to keep people informed about a project as it unfolds is to make use of a website.
It can not only provide a common online 'file cabinet' for relevant documents, it also can act as a central reference point for gathering and disseminating information.
Online forms, for example, can provide a quick means of conducting surveys, sound bites and video clips can be mounted online, and areas restricted by passwords can be used in conjunction with computer conferences to allow private group discussions. To create a good website is no easy task, and resources should be found to get professional assistance here as soon as possible.
However, it is not too difficult to set up a simple, functional site by oneself, so lack of professional resources should not preclude establishing one at the outset of the project. The initial contacts can provide feedback on the design and utility of this initiative.
Begin a funding proposal While many social endeavours are carried out purely on a volunteer basis, any large-scale or long-term social change intervention will require significant resources. A funding source is thus essential, particularly to elicit the support of overworked personnel of underfunded non-profit organizations.
Advice on potential funding sources, as well as suggestions about fundable activities, can be solicited from initial contacts to form the basis of a draft funding proposal.Implementing a SOX compliance program can be a large undertaking, especially in the initial years of being a public company.
The following steps are recommendations to create a seamless SOX compliance program for your organization.

Keywords: Action research, Listening comprehension, Minority students 1. Introduction Listening is the basic language skill in language learning. However, students always think it is difficult to listen well. To foster the students’ listening comprehension skills and prepare them as active listeners in language learning is a big challenge.
Thus, in general, this action research proposal will contribute to the maximum development of our society and in our present educational status.
Limitations of the Study This study is limited only on how computer technology can help in reducing mathematics anxiety into the students.
