KOREAN MASTER KEY HANGEUL PHONICS: Intensive Training Course to Improve Korean Language Skills for Foreigners
KOREAN MASTER KEY HANGEUL PHONICS: Intensive Training Course
▷ This book is published in the hope of creating a textbook that is worth recommending to foreign learners who are beginning to study Korean. ▷ Since it contains not only information about the Korean alphabet but also background information about the language and details about variously pronounced linking sounds, it will help you not only to recognize the letters but also actually to read and listen to Korean. ▷ This book is scientific but not difficult; accurate but fun. The letters in each unit are significant from the order of their presentation, and detailed information about each letter is presented along with pronunciation tips. ▷ For example, tips are given on the pronunciation of diphthongs and the pronunciation differences between ㄱ, ㅋ and ㄲ, which are especially difficult for learners to discern. There are also sections for practicing and improving your handwriting. ▶ This book is mainly about learning Hangeul, but it also covers the short story of the Korean language, explanation of features of Korean such as syllable structures, and linking sounds rules like liaison, assimilation, glottalization, aspiration. ▶ And you can practice all of these in more than 130 Korean words! - Free Audio Downloads - Workbook & Writing Book Included - Translat...

Culture Centers in Higher Education: Perspectives on Identity, Theory, and Practice
Culture Centers in Higher Education: Perspectives on Identity,
Are cultural centers ethnic enclaves of segregation, or safe havens that provide minority students with social support that promotes persistence and retention?Though Black cultural centers boast a 40-year history, there is much misinformation about them and the ethnic counterparts to which they gave rise. Moreover, little is known about their historical roots, current status, and future prospects. The literature has largely ignored the various culture center models, and the role that such centers play in the experiences of college students. This book fills a significant void in the research on ethnic minority cultural centers, offers the historic background to their establishment and development, considers the circumstances that led to their creation, examines the roles they play on campus, explores their impact on retention and campus climate, and provides guidelines for their management in the light of current issues and future directions.In the first part of this volume, the contributors provide perspectives on culture centers from the point of view of various racial/ethnic identity groups, Latina/o, Asian, American Indian, and African American. Part II offers theoretical perspectives that frame the role of culture centers from the point of view of critical race theory, studen...

High-Leverage Practices in Special Education: The Final Report of the HLP Writing Team
High-Leverage Practices in Special Education: The Final Report
Special education teachers, as a significant segment of the teaching profession, came into their own with the passage of Public Law 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, in 1975. Since then, although the number of special education teachers has grown substantially it has not kept pace with the demand for their services and expertise. The roles and practice of special education teachers have continuously evolved as the complexity of struggling learners unfolded, along with the quest for how best to serve and improve outcomes for this diverse group of students. High-Leverage Practices in Special Education defines the activities that all special educators needed to be able to use in their classrooms, from Day One. HLPs are organized around four aspects of practice collaboration, assessment, social/emotional/behavioral practices, and instruction because special education teachers enact practices in these areas in integrated and reciprocal ways. The HLP Writing Team is a collaborative effort of the Council for Exceptional Children, its Teacher Education Division, and the CEEDAR Center; its members include practitioners, scholars, researchers, teacher preparation faculty, and education advocates.

Children at the Center: Transforming Early Childhood Education in the Boston Public Schools
Children at the Center: Transforming Early Childhood Education
Children at the Center provides a closely observed account of a decade-long effort to reshape the scope, direction, and quality of the Boston Public Schools’ early childhood programs. Drawing on multiple perspectives and voices from the field, the authors highlight the reflective, collaborative, inquiry-driven approach undertaken by the program and share lessons learned. Boston Public Schools are recognized for embedding high-quality, public preK programs in their system and achieving exceptional results. In this book, the authors outline the core principles that underlie the district’s early childhood programs and explore the role of curriculum, professional development, coaching, and data use in supporting these new initiatives. They show how the Boston Public Schools Department of Early Childhood was able to work with and against the constraints of the current accountability system to create a holistic, child-centered, play-based program that has had a significant impact in narrowing income-based learning gaps. Written in collaboration with the Department of Early Childhood Education, this account of creating successful preK programs in a diverse urban district will provide a valuable resource for practitioners engaged in similar work across the country.

Taking Science to School: Learning and Teaching Science in Grades K-8 (STEM Education)
Taking Science to School: Learning and Teaching Science
What is science for a child? How do children learn about science and how to do science? Drawing on a vast array of work from neuroscience to classroom observation, Taking Science to School provides a comprehensive picture of what we know about teaching and learning science from kindergarten through eighth grade. By looking at a broad range of questions, this book provides a basic foundation for guiding science teaching and supporting students in their learning. Taking Science to School answers such questions as: When do children begin to learn about science? Are there critical stages in a child's development of such scientific concepts as mass or animate objects? What role does nonschool learning play in children's knowledge of science? How can science education capitalize on children's natural curiosity? What are the best tasks for books, lectures, and hands-on learning? How can teachers be taught to teach science? The book also provides a detailed examination of how we know what we know about children's learning of science--about the role of research and evidence. This book will be an essential resource for everyone involved in K-8 science education--teachers, principals, boards of education, teacher education providers and accreditors, education researchers, federal educatio...

Around the Texts of Writing Center Work reveals the conceptual frameworks found in and created by ordinary writing center documents. The values and beliefs underlying course syllabi, policy statements, website copy and comments, assessment plans, promotional flyers, and annual reports critically inform writing center practices, including the vital undertaking of tutor education.In each chapter, author R. Mark Hall focuses on a particular document. He examines its origins, its use by writing center instructors and tutors, and its engagement with enduring disciplinary challenges in the field of composition, such as tutoring and program assessment. He then analyzes each document in the contexts of the conceptual framework at the heart of its creation and everyday application: activity theory, communities of practice, discourse analysis, reflective practice, and inquiry-based learning.Around the Texts of Writing Center Work approaches the analysis of writing center documents with an inquiry stance--a call for curiosity and skepticism toward existing and proposed conceptual frameworks--in the hope that the theoretically conscious evaluation and revision of commonplace documents will lead to greater efficacy and more abundant research by writing center administrators and students.
