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.

The Hidden Brain

Author: Shankar Vedantam
Publisher: Spiegel & Grau
ISBN: 1588369390
Release Date: 2010-01-19
Genre: Social Science

The hidden brain is the voice in our ear when we make the most important decisions in our lives—but we’re never aware of it. The hidden brain decides whom we fall in love with and whom we hate. It tells us to vote for the white candidate and convict the dark-skinned defendant, to hire the thin woman but pay her less than the man doing the same job. It can direct us to safety when disaster strikes and move us to extraordinary acts of altruism. But it can also be manipulated to turn an ordinary person into a suicide terrorist or a group of bystanders into a mob. In a series of compulsively readable narratives, Shankar Vedantam journeys through the latest discoveries in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral science to uncover the darkest corner of our minds and its decisive impact on the choices we make as individuals and as a society. Filled with fascinating characters, dramatic storytelling, and cutting-edge science, this is an engrossing exploration of the secrets our brains keep from us—and how they are revealed.
