Teach Like a Champion: 49 Techniques That Put Students on the Path to College
Teach Like a Champion: 49 Techniques That Put Students on the Path to College
by Doug Lemov
Edition: Paperback
Price: 13.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is phenomenal. It is full of techniques that will transform your own approach to teaching and make you think about your existing methods that can be refined. It is not pedagogy heavy, but instead provides clearly written sections that improve on different areas of teaching.
You probably do some of them already, but trust me there is always a new trick for each old dog and this has a lot of them

5.0 out of 5 stars McCoys best work, 14 Mar 2014

This review is from: Mourning Sun (Audio CD)
This album is dark, brooding and ideal for those with that kind of mindset. His dark gravel tone along with the mix of guitar and electronic sounds works perfectly. Some argue that it isn't really the Neph without the others in the band, but to be honest I think he works better alone as he can bring out those inner emotions that others might reject from the music making process.

Like most gothic music it isn't really 'single' orientated, but if you have to pick a best song it is the closer 'Mourning Sun', typically though just put the cd on and press play!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality depends on what you use it for., 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have dystonia, a normal mouse causes me great amounts of pain. So I bought this as an alternative.
Build quality is variable the unit itself is good, but the ball feels a little flimsy.
For use though it depends on your purpose.
For surfing the net it is great 5/5
For working 4/5. It is comfortable for long periods, but hard to be precise, such as editing a document.
Gaming 3/5. Fine for anything turn based, in fact it is ideal for Civ or anything like that, but anything that requires quick and precise action will not be practical such as an RTS or action game.For those I prefer a Kensington normal trackball.

In summary. It is great for surfing, reading and casual work, but will not suit anything requiring quick precision. If you have a medical condition that requires a mouse alternative this will do the job, it is comfortable and inexpensive, but I keep a regular trackball plugged in for the important stuff.

1.0 out of 5 stars MIcrophone is RUBBISH, 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The headphones themselves are of very good quality for sound. The issue is that the microphone is inflexible and too far from your mouth. Nothing I do on my computer gives me a voice that can be easily heard by my friends, making it useless for VOIP calls or gaming sessions.
AVOID

5.0 out of 5 stars The Adventure continues, 23 Mar 2010
This is a fantastic addition to any fantasy collection especially for fans of R A Salvatores hero Drizzt. This series continues where the last left off, with the band of friends in Mithral Hall. It is perhaps not the best starting point for a new person to read of Drizzt and Co's adventures, but for any who have read other books in the forgotten realms world then it is a must.
I would recomend reading the earlier ones first such as The Crystal Shard etc, but its nots necersarry as R A Salvtore as always has writeen a set of thrilling adventures which are easy to read and will always have you coming back for more or thinking "do i have time for one more chapter?"

4.0 out of 5 stars young justice, but true justice, 27 April 2003
this is an interesting title that takes a mix of younger characters (inc. wonder girl, impulse, robin), plus a new one.this story is about how some of them get together to hang out a bit and fight crime. A series of events follow, and suprisingly this is a very good book. Its well written and the artwork is superb. i would recomend this title to anybody, who likes the younger character they gel well, and are a strong title indeed.
