Praise for Evidence of Practice:

“Educators will appreciate that the authors tackle the issue of trust building while at the same time providing best practice and practical examples that promote successful implementation. An important tool that belongs in every school’s professional library.”

Stephanie Hirsh, Executive Director at Learning Forward

“This book fills a sorely needed gap in professional practice literature when it comes to best practices for video coaching, and it answers the important questions any educator might have when using video to improve teaching in the classroom. A nice balance between theory, practice and application.”

Cary Goldweber, Executive Producer of Digital Products at ASCD

“Evidence of Practice clearly shows how video in observation and coaching can further strengthen our teaching practice. It belongs on the shelf of all administrators, coaches, and leadership teamsâ??no matter your current level of expertise in the use of video for professional development.”

Elena Aguilar, Author of Art of Coaching and Art of Coaching Teams

Jaime Casap, Chief Education Evangelist, Google

“The authors expertly identify and explain a set of concrete strategies to support the use of video to study and improve teaching practice. This is a resource that teachers, teacher educators, and district administrators should consider as they begin or expand their use of video analysis to support teachers’ professional preparation and ongoing development.”

ADVANCED TECHNIQUE FOR THE MODERN SINGER.: The sound construction, with clear and understandable explanations

by Riccardo Tasselli

This book will provide you with techniques and knowledge about singing so that it will be easy for you to understand and follow.
I will offer you a way to sing through the conscious use of posture, respiration, larynx, and resonators.
As in the construction of a building, we will start from the foundations to the final finishes.
There will be explanations, as simple as possible, and also of the insights so that you can understand the theoretical bases.
I will discuss advanced techniques, some of my rework. The fundamentals are shareable in general with the Bel Canto Italiano, a method that I have tried to revise in my new key.
The book can be read and understood by singers of all levels who can benefit from it.
Once you put the techniques into practice, you can then personalize them, choosing whether to use all the configurations or only in part.
I think that initially the figures that I propose may seem complicated, but over time they will be assimilated with relative ease since I will explain them in detail.

Study Notes: Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Selected Poems: For OCR A-Level

by Chris Webster

These study notes were written for the OCR syllabus H472, Version 1.3 (September 2018), but as they include notes on all his major poems, they may also be useful for a range of other intermediate and advanced syllabuses. The print edition includes the full text of the poems, and special â??lite’ versions of the longer poems. In this Kindle edition, the text of the poems and the â??lite’ versions have been omitted due to problems of formatting, for example, the glosses in The Ancient Mariner. However, all the glossaries, commentaries, questions and essays have been retained.



Idea Capital Development: The 5 Pillar Formula of How to Move From Idea to Reality

by Mapalo Lukashi

Idea Capital Development is birthed from a passion to see people bring to reality their dreams. To make their ideas move from the intangible to the tangible, abstract thought to physical reality. In this book based on research and experience a 5-pillar formula is brought to light that when correctly applied empowers one to convert their ideas into reality.
We live in a time were many motivational speakers have emerged and inspired many people to dream big and think big. While this is a great thing, the challenge remains that very few of these inspired and great ideas get to be conveyed into reality, the process of conversion is where it has been missed and the Idea Capital Development system described in this book solves that problem. After reading this book it is hoped that the reader armed with the wealth of information and secrets that this book unveils will go out into the world and make it a better place by bringing their ideas to fulfillment.



Gopen’s Reader Expectation Approach to the English Language: A New Tweetment

by Gopen George D.

For as long as writing has been taught, the subject has always been approached from the perspective of polite society. The central questions were all writer-based: What can, must, ought the writer to do? What cannot, must not, ought not the writer to do? Mistakes were corrected; awkwardness was chastised; bloat was deflated. We were urged to avoid (the passive) and contain (the number of words in a sentence). But far less often were we told how to go about building a sentence; and almost never were we told why all this advice was supposed to work. The whole perspective was wrong: Instead of looking at the writer, we should have been looking at the far more important person where writing is concernedâ??the reader.

George Gopen’s radical new take on the language, his Reader Expectation Approach, explains how readers go about the act of reading. If we knew how readers make sense of a text, then we could tell the writers, who in turn could then structure their sentences to control most of the reader’s interpretive process. The core of Gopen’s new approach, and the reason it is a radical change, is a single discovery: Readers of English know where in the structure of a sentence or a paragraph to look for the arrival of certain kinds of crucial information. What’s going on in a sentence? Whose story is it? How does it connect to the sentences that surround it? Which words should be read with the greatest emphasis, because they are the stars of that sentence’s show? All of these questions are answered primarily by location: Readers know where in a sentence to look for what. If writers know about these locations, then writers can fill them with the appropriate information and become completely accessible to their readers. Gopen’s longer books explain all this in detail; in this volume, he sets out the essences and high points of his discoveries in tweet-length, almost proverb-like distillations.

Gopen’s Reader Expectation Approach to the English Language is part of the THiNKaha series, whose slim and handy books contain 140 well-thought-out AhaMessages. Increase your influence by picking up the Aha Amplifier to easily share George’s quotes on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+.

by Zhang Hao

Do you believe that a foreign child has the ability to read Chinese at the age of 5? The answer is: Yes. Every child has this ability and you just need to wake it up. This may be a kind of Chinese study book you have never seen before. Just read it slowly before you can pronounce it, and you will find its magical effect.
If you downloaded this book, please feel free to leave a review, any feedback is my motivation to continue writing this series, thank you!
Chinese is a very old language, but it is actually easy to learn. The whole Chinese language system is derived from ancient Chinese Oracle Bone Inscriptions that are graphical and can be easily remembered by children .According to the method of this book, a child can master it like his mother tongue, and maybe even better. All the pictures in this book have been carefully selected and arranged to show the whole evolution of Chinese characters, and a large number of Chinese Oracle Bone Inscriptions is used inside.
If you want to teach your baby Chinese, or want to master Chinese completely rather than speaking one or two everyday sentences, take this book, it is probably your best choice.
