ISBN: 1542457785
Release Date: 2017-01-16
Genre:

A report is the shop window of any department whose role is to review and make recommendations. It doesn't matter how hard you work, if you don't report in a simple, straightforward, easy to read way, your recommendations are less likely to be implemented and your effort will be wasted. This text provides guidance on producing clear, concise and easy to read reports. It covers the basics of structuring a report. However, as many departments have developed their own formats and are happy with them, the focus of this guidance is on using the power of language to make any report easier to read and understand, irrespective of the report structure.

Using Student Centered Methods with Teacher Centered Students

Author: Marilyn Lewis
Publisher: Pippin Publishing Corporation
ISBN: 9780887511165
Release Date: 2007-09-30
Genre: Education

This book has a clear message for classroom teachers: student learning improves when teachers introduce their students to strategies for learning as well as teaching them specific language skills. In practice, however, many of the students themselves are more teacher-centered, finding it easier and preferable to depend on their teachers rather than to take on greater responsibility for their own learning, especially if their educational and cultural backgrounds have not prepared them for this new role. Using Student-Centered Methods with Teacher-Centered Students is packed with suggestions for bringing about a successful match between teachers' preferred ways of teaching and learners' preferred ways of learning, while gradually encouraging increased learner autonomy. The original edition of this book has been widely used by English language teachers worldwide. This new edition offers many fresh ideas, particularly in the area of technology in language learning and teaching.

Reading Responsibly

Author: Tony L. Moyers
Publisher: UPA
ISBN: 9780761867180
Release Date: 2016-03-28
Genre: Literary Criticism

Reading Responsibly: A Guide to Biblical Interpretation focuses on two key areas: methods and ethics of interpretation. The book introduces, explains, and guides students in the understanding and application of particular methods commonly used by biblical scholars in the study of the Bible. The methods discussed focus on historical, literary, and reader-oriented aspects of biblical interpretation. The attention to ethics occurs mainly in the last chapter. Because the Bible is an extremely influential book, it often motivates people to act in beneficial or harmful ways. The focus on love for others motivates charitable giving or actions designed to help others. Emphasis on God’s wrath may lead to exclusivism and even violence. Readings leading to disrespect and mental or physical abuse, stem from an irresponsible use of the Bible. Responsible readings give full consideration to the text in its proper context and never call for action that is inconsistent with love and justice.
