Pricksongs and Descants
Author: Robert Coover
Publisher: Open Road Media
A groundbreaking collection of short fictions including “The Babysitter,” one of the most anthologized stories of all time. Coover’s stories are told well and told in many different styles.
This text provides the most up-to-date information on evidence-based practice, the concepts underlying evidence-based practice, and implementing evidence into the rehabilitation practice. This text is organized by the steps of the process of evidence-based practice--introduction to evidence-based practice, finding the evidence, assessing the evidence, and using the evidence.

Many of the early issues in the field of telE-learning are now not only recognised but are being addressed, through professional and staff development routes, through innovative technological solutions, and through approaches and concepts that are better suited to particular educational contexts. TelE-LEARNING: The Challenge for the Third Millennium provides details of the most recent advances in this area.

In this timely and urgent work, Hans Kung reminds us: - Every minute, the nations of the world spend 1.8 million dollars on military armaments; - Every hour, 1500 children die of hunger-related causes; - Every week during the 1980s, more people were detained, tortured, assassinated, made refugee, or in other ways violated by acts of repressive regimes than at any other time in history; - Every month, the world's economic system adds over 7.5 billion dollars to the catastrophically unbearable debt burden of more than 1.5 trillion dollars now resting on the shoulders of Third World peoples; - Every year, an area of tropical forest three-quarters the size of Korea is destroyed and lost; - Every decade, if present global warming trends continue, the temperature of the earth's atmosphere could rise dramatically with a resultant rise in sea levels that would have disastrous consequences, particularly for coastal areas of all the earth's land masses. In 'Global Responsibility', the author offers important new approaches and concludes that: - There can be no peace among the nations without peace among the religions. - There can be no peace among the religions without dialogue between the religions. - There can be no ongoing human society without a global ethic.
Genre and Writing
Author: Wendy Bishop, Hans A. Ostrom
The theory and criticism of genres of writing was once a stable, staid area of English studies, based largely on a fixed taxonomy of genres and on the tenets of formalism. But with the rise of different postmodern theories, work in sociolinguistics, and the influence of contemporary research, these notions are now under dispute. Wendy Bishop and Hans Ostrom's new book takes a broad look at the new concepts and applications of "genre," presenting several theoretical, critical, and pedagogical perspectives. This collection includes many essays that explicitly concern and/or take into account student writing, including essays exploring links between "process" pedagogy and genre, and between social epistemic pedagogy and genre. Other essays explore the acquisition of genre familiarity; still others, the several possible social functions of genre. By design, these pieces often echo one another, or argue dialectically, in effect collaborating to pursue arguments and lines of inquiry about textual forms and functions. An additional team of contributors wrote brief responses to some of the essays as a way of building conversation and dialogue into the structure of the collection, as a way of inviting readers to imagine their own responses. To showcase these different perspectives, the editors have divided this volume into four sections, comprised of one to six essays each (some with responses), and three intersections where two essayists were paired because their texts either talked to, complicated, or illustrated one another. Bishop and Ostrom state, "Our purpose in stretching and teasing academic writing is not to be clever just for the sake of cleverness; instead we believe that a collection on genre should sweep around its own back door, so to speak; also we know the stretching and teasing and conversing will multiply useful connections, the ones most of us are trying to make these days between our lived lives, our teaching, our scholarship, and our research." Anyone trying to make connections of their own will find this book essential reading.
Ten years ago, this title became an overnight bestseller. In this updated edition of the popular and trusted guide, Heacox provides a practical introduction to differentiation and explains how to differentiate instruction in a wide range of settings to provide variety and challenge in how teachers teach and in how students learn.
Classrooms provide extremely varied settings in which learning may take place, including teacher-led conversations, small group unguided discussions, individual problem solving or computer supported collaborative learning (CSCL). Transformation of Knowledge through Classroom Interaction examines and evaluates different ways which have been used to support students learning in classrooms, using mathematics and science as a model to examine how different types of interactions contribute to students’ participation in classroom activity, and their understanding of concepts and their practical applications. The contributions in this book offer rich descriptions and ways of understanding how learning occurs in both traditional and non-traditional settings. Combining theoretical perspectives with practical applications, the book includes discussions of: the roles of dialogue and argumentation in constructing knowledge the role of guidance in constructing knowledge abstracting processes in mathematics and science classrooms the effect of environment, media and technology on learning processes methodologies for tracing transformation of knowledge in classroom interaction. Bringing together a broad range of contributions from leading international researchers, this book makes an important contribution to the field of classroom learning, and will appeal to all those engaged in academic research in education.
Over 50 customizable forms, rubrics, task activity boards, and figures from Bertie Kingore's book on individualized instruction "Differentiation: simplified, realistic, and effective." The forms and their variations are discussed in the book as being successful classroom activities.
