This book is designed to introduce teachers to digital technology and its uses in the classroom as a new teaching tool that can create curriculum, document learning, provide instant feedback, and share student growth with parents. The book's introduction details the ease in which digital technology can be incorporated into the curriculum. Following the introduction, eight chapters are presented which correspond to the curriculum areas of: (1) language; (2) storytelling/drama; (3) emerging literacy; (4) social studies; (5) physical development; (6) mathematics; (7) sensory exploration; and (8) science. Each chapter begins with an introduction to the curriculum area, its importance, how it is learned, and how that learning can be facilitated through the use of digital technology. The chapters present sample lesson plans that list plan objectives, detailed descriptions of the project, and extension opportunities for small groups, independent explorations, one-on-one instruction, and family involvement. Each chapter ends with a checklist for tracking student progress. (SD)

Conjured back to life by Rembrandt's famous "Aristotle Contemplating the Bust of Homer," Aristotle surveys history and profiles historical personalities, ultimately concluding that not much has changed in 2,500 years
Bookwise is a carefully graded reading scheme organized into five cross-curricular strands, encouraging links to other subjects. Comprising 16 fiction and ten non-fiction titles, the 25 books at each level span a two-year reading age and the three-tier levelling system within each level facilitates an accurate match of reading ability and text. The full-colour readers are accompanied by teacher's guides and resource sheets to help teachers get the most out of their guided reading and writing sessions.
The creative-drawing companion to the acclaimed and bestselling What It Is Lynda Barry single-handedly created a literary genre all her own, the graphic memoir/how-to, otherwise known as the bestselling, the acclaimed, but most important, the adored and the inspirational What It Is. The R. R. Donnelley and Eisner Award–winning book posed, explored, and answered the question: "Do you wish you could write?" Now with Picture This, Barry asks: "Do you wish you could draw?" It features the return of Barry's most beloved character, Marlys, and introduces a new one, the Near-sighted Monkey. Like What It Is, Picture This is an inspirational, take-home extension of Barry's traveling, continually sold-out, and sought-after workshop, "Writing the Unthinkable."

Also available in French.
Picture This... is not the kind of book that the reader will sit and read cover to cover. The book is arranged by subject matter which will cause the reader to have to take time to reflect on the message in each one of the articles. Now those responsible and guilty for all of the negative conditions and hardships caused by their self- serving, fraudulent, mismanaging, thieving, and wasteful deeds, are like Vampires with no Reflections.
Astronomical concepts can be truly hard to comprehend, especially those of planetary sizes and distances from Earth and from each other. These concepts are made more comprehensible by the group of illustrations in this book, which put scale extraterrestrial objects side by side with objects on Earth we can more easily relate to. For example, study the pictures of Earth floating above Jupiter’s Great Red Spot and the asteroid Itokawa resting beside Toronto’s CN Tower. These mind-bending images bring things better into perspective and will help you understand the size and scale of our Solar System. In later chapters, you will be told how close the visionaries of the past came to guessing what today’s explorers would find. Astronomer/painter Lucien Rudaux’s masterpieces of Mars dust storms anticipated Viking and Mars rover images by nearly a century. Space artist Ludek Pesek envisioned astronauts setting up camp on the lunar surface in scenes hauntingly similar to photos taken by Apollo astronauts decades later. But the real benefit of this work is in better grasping the nature of our universe -- how big it is, now large it is, and how we fit into it.
Molly Bang's brilliant, insightful, and accessible treatise is now revised and expanded for its 25th anniversary. Bang's powerful ideas—about how the visual composition of images works to engage the emotions, and how the elements of an artwork can give it the power to tell a story—remain unparalleled in their simplicity and genius. Why are diagonals dramatic? Why are curves calming? Why does red feel hot and blue feel cold? First published in 1991, Picture This has changed the way artists, illustrators, reviewers, critics, and readers look at and understand art.
Essays by Jay Winter, Jeffrey T. Schnapp, Jennifer D. Keene, and others reveal the centrality of visual media, particularly the poster, within the specific national contexts of Britain, France, Germany, Russia, and the United States during World War I.℗¡Ultimately, posters were not merely representations of popular understanding of the war, but instruments influencing the.
Every 37 seconds an American dies of cardiovascular disease. For nearly half of its victims atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease shows up suddenly with a heart attack or sudden death – as if appearing out of a fog. This is the disease that kills most men and women in the United States and knowing about it earlier makes common sense. Atherosclerosis starts silently in our teen years, and often tracks with poor lifestyle, and poorly controlled risk factors including poor nutrition, abnormal lipids, high BP, diabetes, tobacco use, sedentary behavior, and importantly, genetic predisposition. The development and progression of coronary atherosclerosis is a silent process and each year nearly 150,000 Americans present with fatal myocardial infarction as the one and only manifestation of this indolent disease. It is obvious that our current methods to identify and treat atherosclerotic vascular disease fail too many.
In a world where intelligence is so often measured by our ability to read and write, we do not often make considerations for those who find that particular task challenging. We need to shift our perceptions from a culture traditionally embedded in print, and explore the innovative possibility of teaching spelling with an inclusive pencil-free approach such as Picture This! Spelling. Picture This! Spelling is extremely versatile and not only targets Primary and Early Years Education, but also those with Specific Learning Differences, English as an Additional Language and those learning English for the very first time. The programme is easy to follow for both parents and teachers and includes lesson plans, graphics, templates, diagnostics and word trackers. Pencils are replaced by a multisensory, tactile approach, which allows students to freely retain spelling words for rapid recall and automatism within writing. The word shape, word pattern and word sequence is addressed which is proven to support effective retention. Picture This! Spelling teaches 70 irregular word spellings using visualisations and mnemonics. It is a fun, creative and effective spelling programme proven to deliver results, increase students' self-esteem and deliver great academic progress.
See the complete picture...once you complete the maze. On the surface, these unique puzzles may look like other mazes you've done before. But at the end, there's a nice surprise when the lines that found the right pathway are the key to creating an image, too. To add to the fun, there are two different types of puzzles: basic and reversed. For either one, start out by solving as usual. Then, for the basic variation, just take a dark marker and color in the route you traced. For the reversed style, fill in all the wrong paths, instead. Each puzzle has a label from 1 to 7 for its level of difficulty, and the pictures include portraits, animals, and action scenes.
