Basic Music Reference

A Guide for Non-specialist Librarians, Library Assistants, and Student Employees

Author: Alan Green,Michael J. Duffy, IV

Publisher: A-R Editions, Inc.

ISBN: 0895797453

Category: Electronic books

Page: 123

Basic Music Reference is a quick-start guide designed to introduce library employees to the basic tools and techniques involved in answering questions related to music. As in every specialist subject area, music has its own terminology, but unlike most, it also has a multitude of formats—on paper and other materials—as well as special notation and frequent use of foreign languages in titles and texts. These features make it particularly difficult for library employees to answer users’ questions and thus a guide such as this one is essential. Not all libraries with a music collection can afford to hire a music reference librarian. Even libraries with such a specialist rely on support staff and student employees to answer questions when the music librarian is not available. Whatever the scenario, this volume will serve as a helpful training tool for library employees to learn about the basic music reference tools, and to develop the techniques of greatest use when answering the most common types of music-related questions

The Cognitive Enrichment Advantage Teacher Handbook

Author: Katherine H. Greenberg

Publisher: KCD Harris & Associates Press

ISBN: 9780976809500

Category: Education

Page: 240

View: 8205

The Cognitive Enrichment Advantage Teacher Handbook provides a theoretical framework teachers can use to help their students learn how to learn. It builds upon an open and safe classroom atmosphere where students are encouraged to focus on the process of learning at least as much as the product. The Handbook explains how teacher/mediators employ guided discovery to help students socially construct a shared vocabulary as they focus on developing personal learning strategies. The approach is based upon theory and research showing how cognitive enrichment can help develop flexibility in thinking. This flexibility, together with an understanding how feelings and motivation influence learning, can help every student become a more effective, life-long, independent and interdependent learner. The approach has been used most often with marginalized students from preschool through adults in more than six countries.

Teaching Mathematics

Toward a Sound Alternative

Author: Brent Davis

Publisher: Taylor & Francis

ISBN: 9780815322979

Category: Education

Page: 324

View: 2193

This book presents an approach to the teaching of mathematics that departs radically from conventional prescription-oriented and management-based methods. It brings together recent developments in such diverse fields as continental and pragmatist philosophy, enactivist thought, critical discourses, cognitive theory, evolution, ecology, and mathematics, and challenges the assumptions that permeate much of mathematics teaching. The discussion focuses on the language used to frame the role of the teacher and is developed around the commonsense distinctions drawn between thought and action, subject and object, individual and collective, fact and fiction, teacher and student, and classroom tasks and real life. The discussion also addresses the question of how mathematics teaching can be reformed to better suit current academic and social climates. Making use of the theoretical framework of enactivism, the book explores the subject through an account of a middle school teacher's appreciation and understanding of her role. Teaching mathematics, as both the report of this teacher's experience and the discussion make clear, demands an embracing of ambiguity, uncertainty, complexity, and moral responsibility. Courses for Adoption Education: Mathematics for Elementary Teachers, Methods for Teaching Elementary Schools, Methods for Teaching Secondary Schools, Curriculum Studies, Critical Pedagogy Special Features *Elucidates the importance and relationship between theory and practice. Employs reflective teaching techniques to focus students on their own learning, knowledge, and understanding of mathematics.Details a collaborative venture that traces the development of new thinking and insights about math teaching and learning. *A fine blending of theory with practice.

Die Protozoologie ist keine besondere Wissenschaft, sondern nur die Zu sammenfassung der Kenntnisse, welche wir von einer bestimmten Tiergruppe, den Protozoen, besitzen. Sie ist daher nichts weiter als ein Teil der speziellen Zoologie. Trotzdem hat das Wort "Protozoologie" einen besonderen Klang. Mehr als alle anderen Tiergruppen haben die Protozoen dazu angeregt, Fragen von allgemeiner biologischer Bedeutung aufzuwerfen, und nicht wenige Fragen sind mit ihrer Hilfe beantwortet worden oder einer Beantwortung nähergerückt. In anderen Ländern ist die Bewertung der Protozoen als Untersuchungs objekte in ständigem Anstieg begriffen. Äußerlich kommt dies z. B. darin zum Ausdruck, daß die im Jahre 1947 in den USA gegründete "Society of Proto zoologists" heute bereits über 450 Mitglieder zählt. Seltsamerweise ist aber das Interesse an den Protozoen unter den deutschen Biologen immer mehr im Schwinden begriffen. Mit diesem Buch möchte ich dazu beitragen, dieses Interesse neu zu beleben. Die Anregung dazu gab mir eine Vorlesung, die ich in den letzten Jahren mehr mals im Zoologischen Institut der Tübinger Universität hielt. Hierzu trug auch ein protozoologischer Kurs bei, den ich in jedem Sommersemester gemeinsam mit meinem Kollegen V. SCHWARTZ veranstalte.

Kolumbus' Erbe

Wie Menschen, Tiere, Pflanzen die Ozeane überquerten und die Welt von heute schufen

«Das beste Sachbuch des Jahres.» TIME Die Entdeckung Amerikas war für das Leben auf unserem Planeten das folgenreichste Ereignis seit dem Aussterben der Dinosaurier. Denn: Millionen Jahre waren die Hemisphären weitgehend voneinander isoliert gewesen. Mit Kolumbus traten sie in einen Austausch. Menschen und Pflanzen, Tiere und Krankheiten gelangten per Schiff in neue Lebensräume und schufen eine Welt, in der nichts blieb, wie es einmal gewesen war. Das hatte auch gravierende politische Konsequenzen: Der «kolumbische Austausch» trug mehr als alles andere dazu bei, dass Europa zur Weltmacht aufstieg und China verdrängte. Charles C. Mann zeichnet ein spannendes Panorama dieser Vorgänge, das Kontinente und Jahrhunderte umfasst. Ein großartiges Lesevergnügen für alle Wissensdurstigen! «Herausragend.» The New York Times «Ein faszinierendes und vielschichtiges Buch, das auf vorbildliche Weise sprechende Fakten mit gutem Geschichtenerzählen vereint.» The Washington Post
