An Investigation Into the Mind of Fin-de-siècle Vienna
Author: Larry Wolff
Category: Child abuse
Examines four sensational cases of child battering and murder in Vienna in 1899 which dominated the newspapers of the time. Pp. 100-113, "The Eternal Senseless Vilification of the Jews, " surveys antisemitic agitation prevalent in the Austrian Empire and in Vienna at the same time, especially the accusation, trial, and acquittal of Leopold Hilsner for ritual murder in Polna, Bohemia. Discusses the muted reaction in the press, especially in the "Neue Freie Presse" which appealed for attention to child abuse rather than to the "eternal senseless vilification of the Jews." Discusses the reactions of Theodor Herzl and Karl Kraus to the antisemitic agitation, and the later impact of Viennese antisemitism on Adolf Hitler.
Learning about the many exciting cities in North America is a fun way for ESL students to practice aural comprehension and notetaking skills. Each chapter focuses on a different North American city with side trips or short lectures on popular destinations near three of the cities. As students improve their language skills, they learn about the history and culture of each city. Postcards features -- tape-recorded lectures about each city, five to ten minutes in length; -- notetaking strategies that build on one another; accompanied by examples and exercises prior to each lecture; -- vocabulary activities that introduce students to words and expressions they will see and hear in their daily lives; -- pre-listening activities that stimulate students' interest; -- post-listening activities that draw on students' previous knowledge; and -- readings that examine a different aspect or flavor of each city. The following locales are explored: Phoenix, Vancouver, Philadelphia, Honolulu and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park; Los Angeles; Miami; Las Vegas and Grand Canyon National Park; Montreal; Washington, D.C.; and Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia; Chicago; Boston; and New York City.
In more and more schools, students are now being assessed not only on traditional (algorithmic and computational) math skills, but also on how-and how well-they handle reasoning and problem solving. However, until now, these additional skills have been difficult to assess in an objective, accurate and efficient way. But not any more.This book's "comprehensive assessment" approach includes the traditional paper-and-pencil tests plus relatively new ways (e.g., portfolios, journals, observations, interviews, projects, performance tasks, rubrics) to assess what students know about math, and how they reason, solve problems and communicate about it. This unique new handbook provides everything teachers need-background information, problems for various grade levels, detailed answers, forms, teaching suggestions-to assess students throughout the semester or at any time...easily, accurately and effectively!Elementary school teachers.

Author: Juanita S. Sorenson
Publisher: Allyn & Bacon
This is a book about teaching problem solving in all subject areas, not just math puzzles and problems. It includes many examples in language arts and social studies, along with science, math, and interdisciplinary learning. In fact, the procedures presented can also be applied to solving everyday problems of society, economics, politics, art, and literature. The authors show teachers how to recognize problems in every subject area and how to use them as teaching opportunities. Many of the problem solving projects presented are "hands-on" activities for students, and all can be adapted for students in all grades and ages. From dinosaurs, bubble blowing, and mysteries, to the founding of a new country, the art of argumentation, and the survival of the fittest, there's something for use with every student in every classroom.
