Down ... but not out! a look at situational poverty ( visu )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
"For many Americans, the threat of sudden poverty has less to do with the nation's overall economy than it does with personal circumstances. This program discusses the hard facts of situational poverty with a focus on the four most common triggers: job loss, the fastest way to become impoverished; health issues, such as severe injury or long-term illness; the loss of a spouse through divorce or death; and natural disasters. The program also talks about where to turn to for help and provides supportive words of hope. People in the grip of situational poverty may be down, but they aren't out!"--DVD case

The learner-centered curriculum : design and implementation by Roxanne Mann Cullen( file )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 55 libraries worldwide
Most of the scholarship on learner-centeredness is focused on individual classroom pedagogy, but this book takes learner-centeredness beyond the classroom and asks academic leaders to consider the broader implications of making their institutions fully learner-centered. Systemic change is needed, and curriculum is at the heart of what higher education does. To truly effect change, the curriculum needs to be examined and aligned with learner-centered practices. In this book the authors offer both design specifications for a learner-centered approach to curriculum as well as practical recommendations for implementation and assessment. The book covers the need for redesigning curriculum, curriculum design in the instructional paradigm, learner-centered design in practice, implementation, program assessment (including a helpful rubric for this), innovating through technology, and learning spaces that support learner-centered curricula

The End of absence : reclaiming what we've lost in a world of constant connection by Michael Harris( file )
3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
"Every revolution in communication technology'from papyrus to the printing press to Twitter'is as much an opportunity to be drawn away from something as it is to be drawn toward something. And yet, as we embrace a techonology's gifts, we usually fail to consider what we're giving up in the process. Why would we bother to register the end of solitude, of ignorance, of lack' Why would we care that an absence had disappeared'" Soon enough, nobody will remember life before the Internet. What does this unavoidable fact mean' For future generations, it won't mean anything very obvious. They will be so immersed in online life that questions about the Internet's basic purpose or meaning will vanish. But those of us who have lived both with and without the crowded connectivity of online life have a rare opportunity. We can still recognize the difference between Before and After. We catch ourselves idly reaching for our phones at the bus stop. Or we notice how, mid-conversation, a fumbling friend dives into the perfect recall of Google. In this eloquent and thought-provoking book, Michael Harris argues that amid all the changes we're experiencing, the most interesting is the one that future generations will find hardest to grasp. That is the end of absence'the loss of lack. The daydreaming silences in our lives are filled; the burning solitudes are extinguished. There's no true 'free time' when you carry a smartphone. Today's rarest commodity is the chance to be alone with your own thoughts. To understand our predicament, and what we should do about it, Harris explores this 'loss of lack' in chapters devoted to every corner of our lives, from sex and commerce to memory and attention span. His book is a kind of witness for the 'straddle generation''a burst of empathy for those of us who suspect that our technologies use us as much as we use them. By placing our situation in a rich historical context, Harris helps us remember which parts of that earlier world we don't want to lose forever. He urges us to look up'even briefly'from our screens. To remain awake to what came before. To again take pleasure in absence
What poor child is this? sadly, it's American-- ( visu )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
"If poverty is a serpent, child poverty is its venom. And with an estimated 12 million American children suffering from economic hardship, even the wealthiest society on earth cannot escape the poisonous effects of poverty. This program examines child poverty in the U.S.-- its causes, its agents, and its human impact. Citing facts and findings that contradict the American ethos of upward mobility, the film lays bare the sad reality of what financial deprivation is doing to the nation's youngest people-- eroding family bonds, decreasing literacy, increasing health and addiction risks, raising the specter of mental illness, and putting children disturbingly close to criminal influences. Lack of school readiness (preparation for kindergarten) and poor academic achievement are also examined as factors in the perpetuation of the poverty cycle"--Container
