Lazy Virtues: Teaching Writing in the Age of Wikipedia

Lazy Virtues: Teaching Writing in the Age of Wikipedia by Robert E. Cummings
English | Mar. 27, 2009 | ISBN: 0826516165 | 209 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Winner of the MLA's Mina P. Shaugnessy Prize for an outstanding work in the fields of language, culture, literacy, or literature with strong application to the teaching of English.
Focusing largely on the controversial website Wikipedia, the author explores the challenges confronting teachers of college writing in the increasingly electronic and networked writing environments their students use every day. Rather than praising or condemning that site for its role as an encyclopedia, Cummings instead sees it as a site for online collaboration between writers and a way to garner audience for student writing.

Avant garde. Eccentric. A maniac. Wild and adventurous. Off the wall. Extraordinary. No marketing hyperbole - this is how the players of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment describe Carl Philip Emmanuel Bach and his music. One of the many children of JS Bach, CPE Bach always lived in his father’s shadow, and now is an almost unknown figure at least beyond the classical cogniscenti. How can such an unknown be considered a gamechanger? A listen to his music reveals just why – it constantly shifts, wrongfooting the listener when they least expect it with wild changes of direction and colour – it is bright, effervescent, and is a fascinating link between the music of his father (and the Baroque era) and Joseph Haydn (and the Classical era).
Practical Psychiatry of Old Age by John P.; Curran, Stephen Wattis

Practical Psychiatry of Old Age by John P.; Curran, Stephen Wattis
English | 2001 | ISBN: 1857752457 | 277 Pages | PDF | 14 MB

When the first edition of this book was published, psychiatry of old age in the UK was in its infancy. Old age services were not available in many health districts, and the number and range of professionals who were interested in providing services was limited. For example, there were only just over 100 consultant old age psychiatrists, whereas now there are over 500 and there has been a revolution in the provision of services.

This version of The Queen of Spades was originally recorded in 1974 and made available as a special import; it was then generally released by Philips in 1988. Reviewing it at the time, AB gave a level account of its strengths, but had little difficulty in preferring the Tchakarov set when it was issued in 1990. Deleted by Philips, the Ermler performance has now been restored to the Melodiya catalogue. I cannot see anyone dissenting from AB's view: certainly I do not, except perhaps to regard him as being over-generous in his account of Atlantov's Herman in calling it ''loud and unsubtle''. Stronger words would also be appropriate, especially when Atlantov is compared with the sensitive Wieslaw Ochman on the Tchakarov set. Valentina Levko is a good Countess in what is a well-established Russian tradition of responses to the role: AB thought the old lady's reminiscences not so pointedly delivered as by some other singers, and I would add that she would certainly have acquired a better French accent during her long sojourn as the Venus of Paris.

Instruction That Measures Up: Successful Teaching in the Age of Accountability by W. James Popham
English | Apr. 30, 2009 | ISBN: 1416607641 | 183 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

High-stakes testing. Mandated content standards and benchmarks. Public scrutiny of student and school performance. Accountability. Teachers today are challenged to provide instruction that will measure up: to the expectations of administrators, parents, and taxpayers; to their own professional standards; and, most essentially, to the needs of students.
