This book is the result of research and teaching over a period of years. The method used to examine the teaching of History in secondary schools draws on the authors experience as a system analyst where detailed observations of current practice were undertaken and then compared what academic research indicated was best practice for teachers. The author worked as a teacher of History in ten secondary schools in metropolitan, regional, rural and remote schools in the Government, Catholic and Independent school sectors. Planning to Teach History is designed to provide pre-service and early career teachers with a bridge that takes them from their academic training to the classroom. It aims to: · Examine the links between academic research and what happens in the classroom, · Model the teaching of historical knowledge, historical concepts, historical skills in engaging ways integrating technology seamlessly into the classroom , · Provide insights into the professional life of a teacher with emphasis on communicating with parents through student reports, report comments and preparing for parent-teacher interviews, and · Provide Heads of Departments with a resource that offers innovative and engaging ideas on teaching and learning, assessment and reporting. The text covers the classroom environment exploring the characteristics of teachers and students, diversity within the student body and approaches to teaching that cater for this diversity. Content knowledge is a key factor in teaching successfully. The text asks the questions teachers need to be able to answer to teach the options within the curriculum. Productive pedagogy which was based on authentic pedagogy developed by Newman & other is reviewed as is the importance of developing relationships in the classroom. A range of teaching strategies is also examined. Technological knowledge involves knowing what options are available and how they can be used in the classroom. Integrating teacher content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge and technological knowledge into their classroom practice is important in producing students who have the work skills and abilities for the knowledge era. Mapping the curriculum is an important part of designing teaching and learning programs. Understanding what questions students need to explore and how they will demonstrate their knowledge and understanding are important precursors to designing units of work. The text maps the 7-10 History curriculum. Teaching and learning activities and evidence of learning are not in included for two reasons. Firstly, every class and school are different (resources, teacher abilities and technology) so choices of teaching and learning activities are best left to the teacher. Secondly, without access to a resource including a historical narrative, historical sources and links to online resources the teaching and learning activities would be meaningless.

This book describes the fundamentals of three-dimensional (3D) printing, addresses the practical aspects of establishing a 3D printing service in a medical facility, and explains the enormous potential value of rendering images as 3D printed models capable of providing tactile feedback and tangible information on both anatomic and pathologic states. Individual chapters also focus on selected areas of applications for 3D printing, including musculoskeletal, craniomaxillofacial, cardiovascular, and neurosurgery applications. Challenges and opportunities related to training, materials and equipment, and guidelines are addressed, and the overall costs of a 3D printing lab and the balancing of these costs against clinical benefits are discussed. Radiologists, surgeons, and other physicians will find this book to be a rich source of information on the practicalities and expanding medical applications of 3D printing.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Restoring America¿s economic health will require dealing with our federal budget deficit over the long term. Reducing that deficit will require reducing the projected level of defense spending over the next 5 years. The defense budget can and should be reduced without harming national security for 3 reasons: (1) The portion of the world¿s military expend. the U.S. consumes compared to our potential adversaries has grown from 60% to 250%, so even if the U.S. were to cut its spending in half it would still be spending more than its adversaries; (2) The global security environment has changed, so we can reduce the overall size and deployment posture of our armed forces; (3) Significant tech. advances make our fighting forces far more efficient than even in the near past.

Der Kalte Krieg ist seit über zwanzig Jahren vorbei, doch das postsowjetische Russland sucht noch immer nach einer neuen Identität. Während man im Westen nach wie vor von der Gorbatschow-Zeit schwärmt, will man sie in Russland am liebsten vergessen. Inzwischen gilt Stalin dort vielen, auch unter den Jüngeren, wieder als großer Staatsmann, wie überhaupt die sozialistische Vergangenheit immer öfter nostalgisch verklärt wird. Für Swetlana Alexijewitsch leben die Russen gleichsam in einer Zeit des "secondhand", der gebrauchten Ideen und Worte. Wie ein vielstimmiger Chor erzählen die Menschen in ihrem neuen Buch von der radikalen gesellschaftlichen Umwälzung in den zurückliegenden Jahren.

Seine Firma Bridgewater Associates ist der größte Hedgefonds der Welt, er selbst gehört zu den Top 50 der reichsten Menschen auf dem Planeten: Ray Dalio. Seit 40 Jahren führt er sein Unternehmen so erfolgreich, dass ihn Generationen von Nachwuchsbankern wie einen Halbgott verehren. Mit "Die Prinzipien des Erfolgs" erlaubt er erstmals einen Blick in seine sonst so hermetisch abgeriegelte Welt. Seine Beobachtungen aus dem Geschäftsleben hielt Ray Dalio schon als junger Unternehmer in einem Notizbuch fest. Das war die Geburtsstunde seiner gut 200 "Prinzipien", die mit diesem Buch erstmals gebündelt vorliegen und kaum weniger als die Essenz des geradezu unheimlichen Erfolgs von Ray Dalio und seiner Firma darstellen. Kern dieser Prinzipien ist eine stetige Verbesserung durch radikale Transparenz und Wahrhaftigkeit, eine Art "Ideen-Meritokratie ", also eine Atmosphäre, in der sich die besten Ideen durchsetzen. Die einzigartigen Prinzipien, mithilfe derer jeder den Weg des Erfolgs einschlagen kann, und die mitunter harten Lektionen, die ihn sein einzigartiges System errichten ließen, hat Ray Dalio auf eine bisher noch nie dagewesene, unkonventionelle Weise zusammengetragen.

Die neue Formel zum Erfolg: Leidenschaft Ausdauer und Zuversicht Eine Mischung aus Ausdauer und Leidenschaft, nicht IQ, Startbedingungen oder Talent entscheidet über den Erfolg eines Menschen. Diese These hat die Neurowissenschaftlerin und Psychologin Angela Duckworth in dem Wort GRIT zusammengefasst, das im Englischen so viel wie Biss oder Mumm heißt, und hat damit weltweit Aufsehen erregt. Auf Basis ihrer eigenen Geschichte, von wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen und anhand ungewöhnlicher Leistungsbiografien ist sie dem Geheimnis von erfolgreichen Menschen auf den Grund gegangen, seien sie Sportler, Bankmanager oder Comiczeichner. Sie weist nach, dass nicht "Genie", sondern eine einzigartige Kombination aus Begeisterungsfähigkeit und langfristigem Durchhaltevermögen darüber entscheidet, ob man seine Ziele erreicht. Mit zahlreichen Beispielen, die jeder auf seine Situation anwenden kann, erläutert Angela Duckworth das Konzept der motivierten Beharrlichkeit. Und sie fordert dazu auf, im Wissen um GRIT Lernen und Bildung neu zu denken.
