Ancient Greek I: A 21st Century Approach
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

In this elementary textbook, Philip S. Peek draws on his twenty-five years of teaching experience to present the ancient Greek language in an imaginative and accessible way that promotes creativity, deep learning, and diversity. The course is built on three pillars: memory, analysis, and logic. Readers memorize the top 250 most frequently occurring ancient Greek words, the essential word endings, the eight parts of speech, and the grammatical concepts they will most frequently encounter when reading authentic ancient texts. Analysis and logic exercises enable the translation and parsing of genuine ancient Greek sentences, with compelling reading selections in English and in Greek offering starting points for contemplation, debate, and reflection. A series of embedded Learning Tips help teachers and students to think in practical and imaginative ways about how they learn. This combination of memory-based learning and concept- and skill-based learning gradually builds the confidence of the reader, teaching them how to learn by guiding them from a familiarity with the basics to proficiency in reading this beautiful language. Ancient Greek I: A 21st-Century Approach is written for high-school and university students, but is an instructive and rewarding text for anyone who wishes to learn ancient Greek.

0.0 stars

There is great need to understand individuals' functional language abilities, not only in education but in commerce and public policy discussion. The aim is to quantify language use patterns, proficiency, and dominance in the two languages of bilinguals. The Bilingual Language Profile (BLP) is an instrument for assessing language dominance through self-reports that is concise, quick, and easy to use. The BLP is intended to produce a continuous dominance score and a general bilingual profile taking into account a variety of linguistic variables. The BLP is an open and free assessment tool for researchers, educators, and anyone with an interest in assessing language dominance.

Introduction to Humanities

0.0 stars

This course is an introductory survey of the genres and themes of the humanities. The material focuses on philosophy, religion, language, and the arts. As themes, the ideas of freedom, love, happiness, death, nature, and myth are be explored. Typically, a study of humanities looks at western philosophers, maybe a few of the world religions, a history of western music and western visual arts. This textbook begins to break down the barriers of limiting ourselves to learning primarily about western humanities. The question “What makes us human?” is answered by looking at many traditions.

The Magic of Sound, e-knjiga – XV. gimnazija
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating
5.0 stars

This e-book is one of the results of the international project “The Magic of Sound” coordinated by XV. gimnazija, Zagreb, Croatia, with the partners: Devonport High School for Girls, Plymouth, United Kingdom, Justus-von-Liebig Gymnasium, Neußäs, Germany and Colegiul National Moise Nicoara, Arad, Romania. The project was funded by the European Union through the program Erasmus+.
Based on the existing curricula of all participating schools, we produced the teaching/ learning materials which could make education more interesting. As they are independent from the school system, they can be shared and further developed on a broad base.
The developed teaching/ learning materials and methods integrate the teaching of basic skills, as in science, mathematics, literacy and arts, and present strategies on how to simultaneously give students deeper insights into the global picture. They also provide students with the tools to interconnect their knowledge and apply it in different fields, which still presents one of the biggest challenges in education on the overall.
We chose sound as a topic because we found that it can be perfectly integrated in the subject curricula of Physics, Mathematics, Music, Languages, Biology, History and Psychology in all four countries. The sub-topics are organised in four groups around the main subjects - O1: Magic of Music, O2: Sounds in Nature, O3: Sounds of Europe, O4: Theory of Sound- which allowed us to establish a solid basis for the interdisciplinary teaching. In the final sub-topic, O5: The Magic of Sound, the techniques and examples on how to reorganise the materials in an arbitrary context are presented.
The materials are presented in a variety of forms: worksheets, methodological instructions, presentations, videos, quizzes, etc. There are examples of completely developed interdisciplinary units, but there are also shorter pieces that incorporate elements of general knowledge or other subject- specific links which enrich the teaching of a primary subject without overloading it. Some materials include evidence of students’ work.
Most of the materials are given in four languages of the participating countries, all of them in the English language. Topics to be incorporated in the teaching of languages are structured as follows: French is given separately, because it is not one of the four “official” languages, English given only in the sections in English, and German is given in all sections.
Some materials allow students to see the opportunities for future employment within the EU in the context of what has been taught, and to realize that being a part of Europe does not mean losing their identity, but enhance it in many positive ways. Together we are stronger.

Problem-Based Units for Advanced Students of Spanish
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

The purpose of these PBL units is to provide advanced students of Spanish (generally 3rd and 4th year college students) a series of compelling problems from Spanish culture and society. Each unit introduces a problem that students must solve collaboratively in small teams (4-6) over the course of approximately four weeks, assuming 2-3 class meetings per week. The instructor coaches the teams as they seek to fill gaps in understanding, revise hypotheses to incorporate new knowledge, and craft solutions that recognize various perspectives on the problem. Each unit is based on particular objectives, but the skills and processes students will exercise are the same across all units: collaborative problem solving, self-directed research and synthesis of information, argumentation based on sound evidence, and communication in Spanish.

Il volume rappresenta la tappa finale della prima stagione di implementazione del Progetto ABACUS (giugno 2019 - settembre 2020), sostenuta dal finanziamento pubblico garantito dalla Regione Siciliana e dalla Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri. In tal senso, la pubblicazione raccoglie sia una sezione di materiali di discussione critica sul percorso progettuale e sui primi esiti maturati, sia una ricca parte di contributi tematici offerti da referenti istituzionali, studiosi ed esperti, docenti accademici e ricercatori, professionisti e rappresentanti di organismi del Terzo settore Sono state così affrontate ed esaminate differenti tematiche e problematiche socio-culturali e socio-economiche, e prospettive e approcci metodologico-operativi tra loro affini e convergenti, che si sviluppano a cavallo delle politiche sociali, giovanili e culturali, della progettazione sociale e culturale, dell'innovazione sociale e della diversità culturale, in differenti contesti socio-territoriali siciliani e italiani, con una particolare attenzione per quelle iniziative che rappresentano casi paradigmatici in cui le istanze istituzionali, della ricerca, dell'educazione e della formazione si incontrano con le aspettative dei pubblici differenziati e, specialmente, delle giovani generazioni, anche sull'orizzonte della innovazione dell'occupazione giovanile.
