Teaching Effectively with Zoom: A Practical Guide to Engage Your Students and Help Them Learn, Secon

Teaching Effectively with Zoom: A Practical Guide to Engage Your Students and Help Them Learn, Secon

Author: Dan Levy Narrator: Patrick Lawlor Release Date: 01/06/2021

In early 2020, because of COVID-19, many colleges and schools around the world closed, and many teachers, instructors, and faculty members had to learn how to teach online in a hurry. This book takes a step back, and focuses on helping educators teach effective live online sessions with Zoom. Dan Levy offers practical pedagogical advice for educators on questions such as: - Why and how to use breakout rooms? - Should you use chat, and if so, how? - How do you build community in a virtual classroom? The book is based on the author's experience teaching online, observations of several colleagues teaching online at Harvard University, research-based principles of effective teaching and learning, and, perhaps just as importantly, interviews with dozens of students who recently experienced online learning for the first time and also had to adapt to this way of learning in a hurry.

The Psychedelic Reader: Classic Selections from the Psychedelic Review, The Revolutionary 1960's For

The Psychedelic Reader: Classic Selections from the Psychedelic Review, The Revolutionary 1960's For

Author: Gunther M Weil, Ralph Metzner, Timothy Leary Narrator: Patrick Lawlor Release Date: 01/05/2021

Half a century ago, the world changed forever when a Swiss chemist inadvertently ingested the experimental compound lysergic acid diethylamide. Many scientists expected LSD's radically psychoactive chemicals to revolutionize mainstream culture. The Psychedelic Review was founded in 1963 as a serious journal dedicated to the study of the potential of both natural and synthesized psychedelic substances. Presenting experts in the fields of anthropology, religion, pharmacology, poetry, and metaphysics, this pioneering journal had a dramatic impact on its times. Today, the benefits of LSD and other psychoactive drugs in treating depression, anxiety disorders, and PTSD have sparked renewed research. The Psychedelic Reader offers a relevant guidebook to the foundations of a bold new era in mental health studies. Luminaries such as Alan Watts, Timothy Leary, Sir Julian Huxley, and Ralph Metzner contribute insights on a variety of fascinating and controversial subjects. From precise dosage guidelines to ruminations on the poetry of Herman Hesse, this powerful anthology presents the entire psychedelic spectrum with both the seriousness and open-mindedness it deserves. Contains mature themes.

The End of Asylum

The End of Asylum

Author: Andrew I. Schoenholtz, Jaya Ramji-Nogales, Philip G. Schrag Narrator: Patrick Lawlor Release Date: 01/04/2021

Donald Trump's 2016 campaign centered around immigration issues such as his promise to build a border wall separating the US and Mexico. While he never built a physical wall, he did erect a legal one. Over the past three years, the Trump administration has put forth regulations, policies, and practices all designed to end opportunities for asylum seekers. If left unchecked, these policies will effectually lead to the end of asylum, turning the United States into a country with one of the most restrictive asylum systems. In The End of Asylum, three experts in immigration law offer a comprehensive examination of the rise and demise of the US asylum system. Beginning with the Refugee Act of 1980, they describe how Congress adopted a definition of refugee based on the UN Refugee Convention and prescribed equitable and transparent procedures for a uniform asylum process. The authors then chart the evolution of this process, showing how Republican and Democratic administrations and Congresses tweaked the asylum system but maintained it as a means of protecting victims of persecution-until the Trump administration. By expanding his executive reach, twisting obscure provisions in the law, undermining past precedents, and creating additional obstacles for asylum seekers, Trump's policies have effectively ended asylum.

Resisting Illegitimate Authority: A Thinking Person's Guide to Being an Anti-Authoritarian-Strategie

Resisting Illegitimate Authority: A Thinking Person's Guide to Being an Anti-Authoritarian-Strategie

Author: Bruce E. Levine Narrator: Patrick Lawlor Release Date: 01/04/2021

The capacity to comply with abusive authority is humanity's fatal flaw. Fortunately, within the human family there are anti-authoritarians-people comfortable questioning the legitimacy of authority and challenging and resisting its illegitimate forms. However, as Resisting Illegitimate Authority reveals, authoritarians attempt to marginalize anti-authoritarians, who are scorned, shunned, financially punished, psychopathologized, criminalized, and even assassinated. Profiling a diverse group of US anti-authoritarians-including Thomas Paine, Ralph Nader, Malcolm X, and Lenny Bruce-in order to glean useful lessons from their lives, Resisting Illegitimate Authority is the first self-help manual for anti-authoritarians. Discussing anti-authoritarian approaches to depression, relationships, and parenting, it provides political, spiritual, philosophical, and psychological tools to help those suffering violence and marginalization in a society whose most ardent cheerleaders for 'freedom' are often its most obedient and docile citizens. Resisting Illegitimate Authority is about bigotry, but not bigotry directed at race, religion, gender, or sexual preference. It is about bigotry directed at rebellious personalities and temperaments.

Salt Wars: The Battle Over the Biggest Killer in the American Diet

Salt Wars: The Battle Over the Biggest Killer in the American Diet

Author: Michael F. Jacobson Narrator: Patrick Lawlor Release Date: 01/02/2021

From the crusader credited with popularizing the phrase 'junk food,' Salt Wars uncovers the group of scientists who worked with food industry lobbyists and fought all efforts to reduce the dangerous levels of sodium in our food. A high-sodium diet is deadly; studies have linked it to high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attacks. It's been estimated that excess sodium in the American diet causes as many as 100,000 deaths per year. And yet salt is everywhere in our diets-in packaged food, fast food, and restaurant meals. Why hasn't salt received the sort of attention and regulatory action that sugar and fat have? In Salt Wars, Michael Jacobson explains how the American food industry has fought government efforts to reduce dangerous levels of sodium in our food.
