Carlos Kevin Blanton The Strange Career of Bilingual Education in Texas, 1836-1981

2364 руб.
Awarded the Texas State Historical Association's Coral Horton Tullis Memorial Prize; presented March 2005Despite controversies over current educational practices, Texas boasts a rich and vibrant bilingual tradition-and not just for Spanish-English instruction, but for Czech, German, Polish, and Dutch as well. Throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Texas educational policymakers embraced, ignored, rejected, outlawed, then once again embraced this tradition. In The Strange Career of Bilingual Education in Texas, author Carlos Blanton traces the educational policies and their underlying rationales, from Stephen F. Austin's proposal in the 1830s to "Mexicanize" Anglo children by teaching them Spanish along with English and French, through the 1981 passage of the most encompassing bilingual education law in the state's history. Blanton draws on primary materials, such as the handwritten records of county administrators and the minutes of state education meetings, and presents the Texas experience in light of national trends and movements, such as Progressive Education, the Americanization Movement, and the Good Neighbor Movement.By tracing the many changes that eventually led to the re-establishment of bilingual education in its modern form in the 1960s and the 1981 passage of a landmark state law, Blanton reconnects Texas with its bilingual past.CARLOS KEVIN BLANTON, an assistant professor of history at Texas A&M University, earned his Ph.D. fr...

The purpose of this evaluative study was to describe the adoption of distance learning technology in the adult classroom by teachers who have been trained in state funded programs. The study explored technology training as a potential means for active learner involvement and interaction. The study investigated the effectiveness of teaching strategies used to train educators in the use of technology. This qualitative analysis also focused on professional development training sessions and analyzed teacher participation in the consortium effort developed to train them the most effective use of distance learning technology for reinforcing learning. Participants in the study were 8 educators in the southeast quadrant of the state of Oklahoma. All of the educators had received the initial technology training to be classified as a Master Trainer. In-depth interviews were conducted with six educators. Later follow-up interviews were conducted as a member check. Portions of a training session were observed which involved tow educators as trainers. The open coding method was used to interpret the data. The researcher looked for patterns to emerge from the coded data.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Communications - Multimedia, Internet, New Technologies, grade: 1,3, LMU Munich (Institut für Informatik), course: Medieninformatik, language: English, abstract: Radio frequency identification (RFID) still owns a "black-box" image in the mental models of most people. With the current trends to enhance this technology with other functionalities and sensors, this mystical image even gets worse. Despite the fact that there is relative constant amount of scientific publications working with the RFID technology, only few accurately classified works exist, that provide an holistic understanding of this technology. From the view of an user interaction designer it is hardly possible to utilize the remarkable benefits of RFID technology with the current state of science. By an exemplary design of wireless devices, this thesis investigates the RFID technology and draws an in-depth picture of its current state. This is done on a theoretical level with the introduction of the 2013 RFID taxonomy, as well as with three series of enhanced RFID tag prototypes, that have been built to gain practical knowledge in this field. The final prototype implements a music player that is controlled by a set of RFID control widgets. This also is a first application of the Tesla User Interface idea. By comparing and evaluating these approaches, the usefulness for human computer interaction (HCI) was verified, even though this should be done attentiv...

Clifford Geertz Negara. The Theatre State in 19th Century Bali

5277 руб.
Combining great learning, interpretative originality, analytical sensitivity, and a charismatic prose style, Clifford Geertz has produced a lasting body of work with influence throughout the humanities and social sciences, and remains the foremost anthropologist in America. His 1980 book Negara analyzed the social organization of Bali before it was colonized by the Dutch in 1906. Here Geertz applied his widely influential method of cultural interpretation to the myths, ceremonies, rituals, and symbols of a precolonial state. He found that the nineteenth-century Balinese state defied easy conceptualization by the familiar models of political theory and the standard Western approaches to understanding politics. Negara means "country" or "seat of political authority" in Indonesian. In Bali Geertz found negara to be a "theatre state," governed by rituals and symbols rather than by force. The Balinese state did not specialize in tyranny, conquest, or effective administration. Instead, it emphasized spectacle. The elaborate ceremonies and productions the state created were "not means to political ends: they were the ends themselves, they were what the state was for.... Power served pomp, not pomp power." Geertz argued more forcefully in Negara than in any of his other books for the fundamental importance of the culture of politics to a society. Much of Geertz's previous work--including his world-famous essay on the Balinese cockfight--can be seen...

The first book to focus on the role of glass as a material of critical importance to the wine industry For centuries glass has been the material of choice for storing, shipping, and sipping wine. How did that come to pass, and why? To what extent have glassmaking and wine making co-evolved over the centuries? The first book to focus on the role of glass as a material of critical importance to the wine industry, The Glass of Wine answers these and other fascinating questions. The authors deftly interweave compelling historical, technical, and esthetic narratives in their exploration of glass as the vessel of choice for holding, storing, and consuming wine. They discuss the traditions informing the shapes and sizes of wine bottles and wine glasses, and they demystify the selection of the «right glass» for red versus white varietals, as well as sparkling and dessert wines. In addition, they review the technology of modern glassmaking and consider the various roles glass plays in wineries—especially in the enologist's laboratory. And they consider the increasing use of aluminum and polymer containers and its potential impact on the central role of glass as the essential material for wine appreciation. The first book focusing on the role of glass and its central importance to the wine industry Written by a glass scientist at UC Davis, home of the premier viticulture and enology program in North America Interlards discussions of the multi-billion-dollar glass and wine industries with valuable technical insights for scientists, engineers, and wine enthusiasts alike Illustrates the wide spectrum of bottles, carafes, decanters, and drinking glasses with an abundance of exquisite full-color photos Both an authoritative guide and a compelling read, The Glass of Wine tells the story of the centuries-old marriage between an endlessly fascinating material and a celebrated beverage. It is sure to have enormous appeal among ceramic and glass professionals, wine makers, and oenophiles of all backgrounds.

Little has been written about the New Deal's effect at the state level. How did the states act before the New Deal? Did the Roosevelt administration promote progressive policies on the state level? Did it destroy state initiative? Was it discriminatory? In what kinds of states did it seem to have the greatest impact, and why? What barriers were placed in the way of New Deal planning? Professor Patterson traces trends in state affairs and in American federalism between 1920 and 1940, focusing on the states in relation to the federal government. Though he pays attention to individual state variations, he searches for generalizations which explain the pattern instead of presenting a routine state-by-state survey.Originally published in 1969.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Technology, Literature and Culture provides a detailed and accessible exploration of the ways in which literature across the twentieth century has represented the inescapable presence and progress of technology. As this study argues, from the Fordist revolution in manufacturing to computers and the internet, technology has reconfigured our relationship to ourselves, each other, and to the tools and material we use. The book considers such key topics as the legacy of late-nineteenth century technology, the literary engagement with cinema and radio, the place of typewriters and computers in formal and thematic literary innovations, the representations of technology in spy fiction and the figures of the robot and the cyborg. It considers the importance of broadcast technology and the internet in literature and covers major literary movements including modernism, cold war writing, postmodernism and the emergence of new textualities at the end of the century. An insightful and wide-ranging study, Technology, Literature and Culture offers close readings of writers such as Virginia Woolf, Samuel Beckett, Ian Fleming, Kurt Vonnegut, Don DeLillo, Jeanette Winterson and Shelley Jackson. It is an invaluable resource for students and scholars alike in literary and cultural studies, and also introduces the topic to a general reader interested in the role of technology in the twentieth century.

Contesting the state. Lessons from the Irish case

3564 руб.
This is the first comprehensive survey of the Irish state, and draws on a range of theoretical approaches to analyse its origins, its evolution, its nature and its role in Ireland’s recent economic success. The book begins by outlining the fragmentary way in which the Irish state has been treated to date in the social sciences. Subsequent chapters by distinguished contributors then go on to examine the history of the Irish state from 1922 to 1973, the developmental nature of the Irish state since the 1980s, the Irish state as a partnership state, the gendered nature of the state, the changing nature of the state’s autonomy and capacity since independence, whether the Irish state can be described as a competition state, and the activities and policies of the Irish state as a welfare state. The editors examine the lessons learnt from these analyses before detailing a challenging agenda for further research.The book will be of major interest to students of Irish politics and of Ireland’s recent economic and social development. Given Ireland’s status as a model of success in this globalised era, the book will interest scholars of globalisation and comparative politics, and makes a significant contribution to analyses of the role of the state in this context.

“The Instinct of Workmanship and the State of the Industrial Arts” is an 1899 treatise by Thorstein Veblen. Thorstein Bunde Veblen (1857 – 1929) was an Norwegian-American sociologist and economist most famous for his idea of 'conspicuous consumption. He theorised that humans do not rationally pursue value and utility—an idea that has become one of the cornerstones of modern behavioural economics. He made a lasting contribution to his field and has influenced many scholars that have followed him. Other notable works include “The Theory of the Leisure Class” (1899) and “In The Theory of Business Enterprise” (1904). Contents include: “Introductory”, “Contamination Of Instincts In Primitive Technology”, “The Savage State Of The Industrial Arts”, “The Technology Of The Predatory Culture”, “Ownership And The Competitive System”, “The Era Of Handicraft”, “The Machine Industry”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

Jane McLeod Licensing Loyalty. Printers, Patrons, and the State in Early Modern France

5064 руб.
In Licensing Loyalty, historian Jane McLeod explores the evolution of the idea that the royal government of eighteenth-century France had much to fear from the rise of print culture. She argues that early modern French printers helped foster this view as they struggled to negotiate a place in the expanding bureaucratic apparatus of the French state. Printers in the provinces and in Paris relentlessly lobbied the government, hoping to convince authorities that printing done by their commercial rivals posed a serious threat to both monarchy and morality. By examining the French state's policy of licensing printers and the mutually influential relationships between officials and printers, McLeod sheds light on our understanding of the limits of French absolutism and the uses of print culture in the political life of provincial France.
