When it was first published in 1997, The Course Syllabus became the gold standard reference for both new and experienced college faculty.
Like the first edition, this book is based on a learner-centered approach. Because faculty members are now deeply committed to engaging students in learning, the syllabus has evolved into a useful, if lengthy, document. Today's syllabus provides details about course objectives, requirements and expectations, and also includes information about teaching philosophies, specific activities and the rationale for their use, and tools essential to student success.
مجدداً يبحر الروائي اليمني وجدي الأهدل في ثاني رواية له تلت "قوارب جبلية" التي أثارت ضجة كبيرة إثر مصادرة السلطات اليمنية لها ومنع تداولها منتصف 2002م. وكما لا تفارق السخرية من الواقع السياسي والاجتماعي أعماله منذ "زهرة العابر" –قصص1997م-، يتجسد العمل الروائي الجديد لوجدي الأهدل كأحد أهم أعماله الساخرة من محظورات الواقع في عالم متخيل روائياً، بأسلوب سردي يمكن بجلاء أن نقرأ من خلاله وجدي الأهدل بتميز أسلوبه وبصمته الحكائية الخاصة. لم تخلو "فيلسوف الكرنتينة" من فنتازية ساحرة، وموخزة أيضاً كما في باقي أعمال الأهدل. تعتقد أن الشخوص، الأمكنة، الزمان في "فيلسوف الكرنتينة" وكأنها عوالم أسطورية مصطنعة كما في قصص الخيال العلمي، ولكنك ما تلبث اكتشاف إمكانية تطابقها مع العوالم الواقعية المعاشة يومياً، تأخذك الرواية في عالمها الغرائبي الخاص وما تلبث أن تغمسك في إمكانيتها كواقع مشابه لكن ليس بغريب على أي منا، وكأنهما واحد، الرواية الغرائبية والواقع المؤلم. ويبدو أن الأهدل قد اختار أن يوسع محيط حكاياته مكانياً ليتجاوز النطاق الجغرافي لليمن التي دارت فيهما أحداث روايتيه "قوارب جبلية" و"حمار بين الأغاني"، وكما انزاحت جغرافياً، فالرواية تنزاح سردياً باتجاه الإثارة والدهشة والأحداث تصاعدياً.
Skills and experience might land you a leadership position, but they don't make you a true leader. Leadership comes from inside--and the greatest leaders first question themselves before they tackle the world around them.
To aid in this critical interrogation, The Ten Golden Rules of Leadership explores ideas from Aristotle, Heraclitus, Sophocles, Hesiod, and other great thinkers, including: * Know thyself * Do not waste energy on things you cannot change * Nurture community * Always embrace the truth * Let competition reveal talent * Live life by a higher code * Understand that character is destiny Then it shows you how to take each idea--along with what you've learned about yourself--and apply it to the challenges of the modern workplace. As Aristotle tutored Alexander the Great, you too will learn what it takes to conquer all.
Juliana Starosolska was taken by the Stalinists from her parents' home in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv and deported in a sealed boxcar to a distant and primitive outpost in Siberian Kazakhstan. In "Woman in Exile, " she records her ordeals in a series of vignettes that capture the horrific, the humane, and even the occasionally humorous aspects of her experience. Her father was arrested by the Stalinists and sent to a forced labor camp deep in Russian Siberia, where he died than two years later. In the spring of 1940, the rest of his family, who had remained behind in Ukraine-Juliana; her frail mother, Daria; and her brother, Ihor-were forcibly deported by the Soviet government. They were forced to live and work under the most brutally primitive and backbreaking conditions. After the death of her mother and the reassignment of her brother to a different part of Kazakhstan, Juliana found herself alone. When World War II ended, as a former Polish citizen, Juliana was allowed to leave Kazakhstan for Poland in 1946. She immigrated to the United States in 1967, where she resumed her journalistic and literary career. Now she tells the story of those difficult years-of her time as a "Woman in Exile."
"A much-needed update to Horosko's earlier book on Graham, offering an insightful look into the world of Martha Graham from those who worked very closely with her throughout the years."--Elizabeth Bergmann, dance director, Harvard University Marian Horosko brings together new and previously published interviews of Martha Graham's "family" of dancers, teachers, choreographers, and actors and interweaves them with provocative biographical material about the life and influence of the creator of classic modern dance. Spanning the past seventy-five years, the interviews testify to the remarkable legacy that inspired the careers of many in the dance world, among them dancers from the contemporary generation who inherited her technique but never saw her perform. The interviews of teachers, all former Graham students, reflect their passion for maintaining Graham's few fixed principles and her emotional integrity. Some of the foremost actors of Graham's time (she died in 1991) describe their stormy encounters with her in the process of her attempts to teach them that "movement doesn't lie." Although not a textbook—no textbook describing the exercises exists—this book offers the only syllabus in print of Graham's work.
Drawn from a private film of a class for her advanced and professional company members in the 1960s, it includes comments from Graham and testifies to her use of imagery in teaching. Photographs that capture the dancers' physical configuration document the development of Graham's choreographic legacy, which expanded and changed as she created each new work, more than 200 in all. These images, along with the interviews and commentary, plot the evolution of Graham's methodology and vocabulary of movement, on which classical modern dance continues to rely. Marian Horosko, a former member of the New York City Ballet, is the author or editor of five books on dance.
