Pedagogy And Place: Merging Urban History And Environmental History With Active Learning, Steven Corey 2009 Columbia College Chicago

Pedagogy And Place: Merging Urban History And Environmental History With Active Learning, Steven Corey

Steven H. Corey

Exposing undergraduates to history first-hand through the active learning process is an effective and rewarding way to help them learn about the evolution and nature of urban life.This article highlights the experience of an urban studies professor in implementing active learning models and inquiry-based exercises into four separate undergraduate courses; an interdisciplinary introductory course in urban studies, a survey course in American urban history, an upper-level class in environmental history and public policy, and a specialized course on community development and urban renewal. It argues that a wide variety of local sources can be used to illustrate larger urban ...

Naga-Ed-Deir To Thebes To Abydos: The Rise And Spread Of The “Couple Standing Before Offerings” Pose On Fip And Mk Offering Stelae, Jacqueline Jay 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Naga-Ed-Deir To Thebes To Abydos: The Rise And Spread Of The “Couple Standing Before Offerings” Pose On Fip And Mk Offering Stelae, Jacqueline Jay

Jacqueline E. Jay

The “couple standing before offerings” pose first appeared at Naga-ed-Deir in the First Intermediate Period and gradually rose in popularity at that site. Its appearance at Thebes in the late Eleventh Dynasty coincided with reunification; similarly, it first occurred at Abydos at the beginning of the Twelfth Dynasty, as Amenemhet I was consolidating his control of the north. As the Twelfth Dynasty progressed, however, stelae production became more and more standardized, and the pose ultimately dropped out of use. Thus, as this paper will show, tracing the rise and spread of the “couple standing before offerings” pose enables us to ...


The Right To Arms In The Living Constitution, David Kopel 2009 Denver University, Sturm College of Law

The Right To Arms In The Living Constitution, David Kopel

David B Kopel

This Article presents a brief history of the Second Amendment as part of the living Constitution. From the Early Republic through the present, the American public has always understood the Second Amendment as guaranteeing a right to own firearms for self-defense. That view has been in accordance with élite legal opinion, except for a period in part of the twentieth century.

"Living constitutionalism" should be distinguished from "dead constitutionalism." Under the former, courts looks to objective referents of shared public understanding of constitutional values. Examples of objective referents include state constitutions, as well as federal or state laws to protect ...

Constructing The Innocence Of The First Textual Encounter, Alex Mueller, Cheryl Nixon, Rajini Srikanth 2009 University of Massachusetts Boston

Constructing The Innocence Of The First Textual Encounter, Alex Mueller, Cheryl Nixon, Rajini Srikanth

Alex Mueller

Three faculty members from UMass Boston's English Department—a team responsible for the department’s M.A. course on the Teaching of Literature and for the training of novice teachers of literature—examine the complex process of reading texts that they teach as if they are encountering them as their students do, for the first time. Accepting the proposition that reading texts in the classroom places the student at the center of an experience that originates in the instructor, they sug- gest that teachers must be prepared to relinquish their “expert” attachment to the text by defamiliar- izing it ...
