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.

In Defense of Good Teaching
English | January 1, 1998 | ISBN: 1571100865 | 200 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

This book is dedicated to all the courageous and highly professional teachers, administrators, and teacher educators who have borne the brunt of these attacks. A lesson that those mandating curriculum and methodology have not understood is that only teachers can change what happens in classrooms. And teachers will find ways of continuing to act on what they know on behalf of their pupils. The saddest part of these attacks is that the most dedicated, hardest-working, and best informed teachers are being blamed for the failures of a system being continuously eroded by politicians.

Incentives to Improve Teaching: Lessons from Latin America (Directions in Development) by Emiliana Vegas

Latin America faces tremendous challenges, particularly those of development, poverty, and inequality. Education is widely recognized as one of the most critical means of defeating these challenges. Democratizing education, by improving both its coverage and quality, is critical to overcoming the social and economic inequality that plagues Latin America. Ensuring that all children have the opportunity to learn critical skills at both primary and secondary level is paramount to overcoming skill barriers that perpetuate underdevelopment and poverty.

Audio CDs in MP3 / English: MP3, 93 kb/s (2 ch) | Duration: 19:02:04 | 2007 | ISBN-10: 1598033794 | 757 MB
Genre: Economics

In Modern Economic Issues, Professor Robert Whaples has crafted a course designed as a primer in 21st-century economics for the non-economist. He first presents the results of a survey of professional economists around the country on what they consider today's most urgent economic issues-the ones all of us most need to understand. Professor Whaples then puts his award-winning teaching skills to work to shape an accessible course, explaining not only those urgent issues but also the raw data economists use to describe their shape and impact. The result is a course that finally makes the connection between the economics you may have studied in school and the economics of the lives we experience every day. 36 Lectures on 18 Compact Discs. 30 min per lecture.
