Lazy Virtues: Teaching Writing in the Age of Wikipedia

Lazy Virtues: Teaching Writing in the Age of Wikipedia by Robert E. Cummings
English | Mar. 27, 2009 | ISBN: 0826516165 | 209 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Winner of the MLA's Mina P. Shaugnessy Prize for an outstanding work in the fields of language, culture, literacy, or literature with strong application to the teaching of English.
Focusing largely on the controversial website Wikipedia, the author explores the challenges confronting teachers of college writing in the increasingly electronic and networked writing environments their students use every day. Rather than praising or condemning that site for its role as an encyclopedia, Cummings instead sees it as a site for online collaboration between writers and a way to garner audience for student writing.

Intercessory Prayer: Modern Theology, Biblical Teaching and Philosophical Thought by Philip Clements-Jewery
English | Apr. 28, 2005 | ISBN: 0754638286 | 167 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

How is prayer possible? How does prayer work? Why is it necessary to ask for God's gifts? Intercessory Prayer attempts to provide answers to questions about the nature of intercessory prayer. Critically examining biblical teaching and modern theological and philosophical thinking, this book shows how intercessory prayer may be seen as one of the means by which God enlists the freely-given cooperation of human persons in the realisation of the divine purpose.

Linguistic Diversity and Teaching

Linguistic Diversity and Teaching (Reflective Teaching and the Social Conditions of Schooling Series) by Nancy L. Commins
English | June 17, 2005 | ISBN: 0805827366 | 205 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Linguistic Diversity and Teaching raises questions and provides a context for reflection regarding the complex issues surrounding new English learners in the schools. These issues exist within a highly charged political climate and involve not only language, but also culture, class, ethnicity, and the persistent inequities that characterize our educational system. The text addresses these issues through conversations among experts, practitioners, and readers that are informed by representative case studies and by a range of theoretical approaches. It is designed to engage readers in beginning to evolve their own practical theories, to help them explore and perhaps modify some basic beliefs and assumptions, and to become acquainted with other points of view. Throughout, readers are encouraged to interact with the text and to develop their own perspective on the issue of linguistic diversity and teaching.
