SEVEN LAWS OF TEACHING

$8.00
New/Used: New
First published in 1884, this template for teaching continues to cut accurate patterns. Though the book promises "a clear and simple statement of the important factors governing the art of teaching," it delivers much more. Here is teaching tonic to be taken in strong doses by those who want to rejuvenate their teaching. This classic work by John Milton Gregory should be part of the curriculum for all schools training teachers. That "The Seven Laws of Teaching" is still being reprinted is a testimony to the timeless value of the author's wisdom contained within its pages. There are times when the old ways are the best ways and this book is one of those. Public schools, the failures that they are, would do well to scrap modern pedagogy and practice The Seven Laws of Teaching. John Milton Gregory's clear and concise presentation of the fundamental laws of teaching has been studied and applied in a variety of educational situations, from church schools to in-service programs of prestigious businesses. Educational fads come and go, but the basic principles of teaching and learning, those discussed in this book, are not subject to the winds of change. "For succinct, usable material on the art of teaching, this book, in our judgment, cannot be surpassed."-The Christlife Magazine "This is one of the most splendid books ever put in print on the art of teaching."-Calvary Bookstore, New York "Here is the psychology of teaching at its best."-The Fellowship Baptist "Teachers will find in this handbook . . . far more practical help than they would find in a more technical presentation."-Review and Expositor "It summarizes beautifully and systematically the seven factors that are present in every instance of true teaching."-The Banner "It will be a wise pastor or Christian education director who will require Sunday school teachers to read this book."-Bibliotheca Sacra "Unexcelled as an aid to teaching any subject whatsoever and any individual or group."-Biblical Research Monthly

$26.50
New/Used: New

... a remarkable collection of observations and reflections on past experiences by many excellent artists and teachers that will doubtless help... those interested in creating 'opera magic.'" --Tito Capobianco

Singing, Acting, and Movement in Opera is designed for use in opera and musical theater workshops and by beginning professional singers. Drawing on years of research, teaching, and performing, Mark Ross Clark provides an overview of dramatic methodology for the singing actor, encouraging the student's active participation through practical exercises and application to well-known works. The Singer-getics method emphasizes integration of the various dimensions of opera performance, creating synergies among vocal performance, character development, facial expression, and movement on the stage. The book presents important information about stagecraft, characterization, posture, historical styles, performance anxiety, aria, and scene analysis. Excerpts from interviews with performers, directors, conductors, coaches, composers, and teachers offer insights and advice, allowing the reader to "meet the artists." An appendix by postural alignment specialist Emily Bogard describes techniques of relaxation and self-awareness for the performer. This lively book will appeal to students, teachers, professionals, and general readers alike.

    Praise for the Second Edition:

    This is a very well-written book, My students appreciated the down-to-earth style of writing' Many of my students are deathly afraid of topics that haveanything to do with biology. [They] were assured by the lack of jargon and the fact that the chapters were written in a way that they could easilyunderstand. I look forward to the third edition!

    -Nathan Thomas, LCSW
    San Jose State University, School of Social Work

    New findings emerge daily, and new medications hit the market every year. The nature of this topic lends itself to revision at least every 2-3 years tostay current and germane to current practice standards. The case studies are a nice way to transform and integrate clinical principles with social workpractice. Students have enjoyed the book as a foundational text,

    -Dr. Robert Mindrup, PsyD,
    University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Social Work

    This comprehensive text prepares social workers to play a key role within an interdisciplinary health care team, emphasizing the importance of counseling for clients that take mental health medications as part of their treatment. The third edition has been fully revised to include new medications and reflect changes resulting from the publication of the DSM-5. Sample treatment plans, case examples, and a full glossary of medications have been updated, and the addition of a comprehensive Instructors Manual further enhances the text's value. Also included is information on prescription drug abuse, expanded discussions of psychopharmacological considerations related to gender and culture, and new content on medical marijuana, pregnant women, suicide warnings, Internet availability, and electronic records. The third edition also features a discussion of potential interactions with medications used to treat chronic conditions and emphasizes professional collaboration.

    The text is replete with guidance on common medicine-related issues social workers encounter in practice, including identifying potentially dangerous drug interactions and adverse side effects, improving medication compliance, recognizing the warning signs of drug dependence, and understanding how psychopharmacology can work in conjunction with psychosocial interventions. The text also addresses the particular needs of children, older adults, and pregnant women, and the treatment of specific mental health conditions.

    Key Features:

  • Addresses the role of medication from the perspective of social work treatment
  • Delivers guidance on common challenges social workers encounter in practice
  • Encourages and empowers clients to be active in their own treatment
