Using Kinesthetic Activities To Teach Ptolemaic And Copernican Retrograde Motion, Ted Richards 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Using Kinesthetic Activities To Teach Ptolemaic And Copernican Retrograde Motion, Ted Richards

Ted Richards

This paper describes a method for teaching planetary retrograde motion, and the Ptolemaic and Copernican accounts of retrograde motion, by means of a series kinesthetic learning activities (KLAs). In the KLAs described, the students literally walk through the motions of the planets in both systems. A retrospective statistical analysis shows that students who participated in these activities performed better on examination questions pertaining to retrograde motion than students who did not. Potential explanations for this result, including the breaking of classroom routine, the effect of body movement on conceptual memory, and egocentric spatial proprioception, are considered.

From Bereavement To Assessment" The Transformation Of A Regional Comprehensive University, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, Rose Perrine, Paula Kopacz, Dorie Combs, Onda Bennett, Stacey Street, E.J. Keeley 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

From Bereavement To Assessment" The Transformation Of A Regional Comprehensive University, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, Rose Perrine, Paula Kopacz, Dorie Combs, Onda Bennett, Stacey Street, E.J. Keeley

Charlie Sweet

This is no conventional book about assessment. It presents the unvarnished first-person accounts of fourteen faculty and administrators about how they grappled, and engaged, with assessment and how – despite misgivings and an often-contentious process – they were able to gain the collaboration of their peers as the benefits for student learning became evident. This is a book for skeptical faculty, for those who have been tasked to spearhead their institution’s call to create a culture of assessment; and, on campuses where assessment has been widely accepted and implemented, for those who now need to ensure this commitment will endure. For ...

Military Capacity In Spring And Autumn, A. Brooks 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Military Capacity In Spring And Autumn, A. Brooks

A. Taeko Brooks

It has been said that the states of Spring and Autumn (0770-0479) deployed large armies, drawn in part from the general populace.1 But our only contemporary source, the Lu chronicle Chun/Chyou (CC), implies a more limited situation: small elite chariot forces, few battles,2 and tactical frugality. The size of these forces did increase over the period,3 but no major state was destroyed by them. I here review the major features of the military system of the time, noting the limits on what it could achieve – limits that were surpassed only by reorganizing the state itself, a ...

Pozarci: Gospodarka A Powolanie Chrzescijanskie, William Cavanaugh 2009 Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology

Pozarci: Gospodarka A Powolanie Chrzescijanskie, William Cavanaugh

William T. Cavanaugh

Mieć czy być? Czy chrześcijanie powinni opowiadać się za czy przeciw wolnemu rynkowi? Dlaczego konsumpcjonizm ,,pożera" konsumentów? Dlaczego prezesi wielkich firm nie znają umiaru w zwiększaniu własnych wynagrodzeń? Dlaczego związki zawodowe są coraz słabsze? I dlaczego ulega zatarciu różnica między pracownikiem a niewolnikiem? Ta książka odpowiada nie tylko na te pytania. Jest w niej zawarta także potężna dawka teologicznej refleksji nad zagadnieniami takimi jak Bóg, sprawiedliwość, globalizacja i wolność. Nie brak również konkretnych przykładów rozwiązań gospodarczych, spójnych z życiem w Ciele Chrystusa. A takowe już istnieją i - jak wykazuje Autor - funkcjonują z pożytkiem dla ogółu. Tę rozprawę z przyjemnością przeczytają ...

Realism And The Ethics Of Risk At The Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Kim Solga 2009 The University of Western Ontario

Realism And The Ethics Of Risk At The Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Kim Solga

Kim Solga

The Stratford Shakespeare Festival is notoriously risk-averse, creating quality "classical" theatre without rocking any audience worlds. Or is it? This paper re-examines the history of "risk" at Stratford and explores two key productions directed by Peter Hinton at the Festival. I conclude that, perhaps, risk-taking directors and a "conservative" acting company serve the work very well indeed.


Triple Play, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, William Phillips 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Triple Play, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe, William Phillips

Charlie Sweet

“Triple Play” presents three procedural techniques nicely reduced to related mnemonics for making the most of class time by embedding three different approaches to assessing students’ learning right there in the class that day. The fruits of such exercises doubtless will give faculty who try them important information on what’s working with their students and what is not, but a point the authors don’t emphasize is that the exercises will also compel students to become conscious of where they stand in their own learning as learning rather than as a response to how they felt about the class ...
