Tyranny of the Textbook
HK$ 223.00 HK$ 247.00
Kobo

Educational reforms and standards have been a topic of public debate for decades, with the latest go-round being the State Common Core Curriculum Standards. But time and again those reforms have failed, and each set of standards, no matter how new and different, has had little impact on improving student achievement. Why? The textbooks. Textbooks sell based on design and superficial features, not because they are based on the latest research on how children learn and how well they promote student achievement. In Tyranny of the Textbook, Beverlee Jobrack, retired from educational publishing, sheds light on why this happens. She gives an engaging and fascinating look behind-the-scenes of how K-12 textbooks are developed, written, adopted, and sold. And, perhaps most importantly, she clearly spells out how the system can change so that reforms and standards have a shot at finally being effective. Did you know?Reform efforts have focused on writing and rewriting standards and tests, but these rarely have any effect on the core curriculum that is published. School districts and states don't use effectiveness as a criterion for evaluating and purchasing textbooks. Publishers don't offer textbooks with better content or the latest teaching methods because teachers don't want textbooks that require them to change their practices. Teachers report that they don't rely on a textbook in their class, but research shows that they do. Three companies publish 75 percent of the K-12 educational materials. Those three companies are producing similar programs with the same instructional strategies, none of which require teachers to change their practices significantly. Publishers write textbooks for California and Texas. All of the other markets have to make do with books only superficially adjusted for their states.

Textbook on Spherical Astronomy
HK$ 677.00 HK$ 796.00
Kobo

This well-established textbook gives a general but comprehensive introduction to positional astronomy. Originally based on the author's lecture courses at Cambridge University, it is intended primarily for undergraduates, but, due to its comprehensive nature, it is a very useful reference text for research workers in many branches of astronomy and space physics. The author considers the night sky as the celestial sphere and powerfully exploits the methods of spherical geometry. Most problems in which the precise determination of a heavenly body's position in the sky is important are considered in theoretical detail, and the necessary formulae are derived to a precision that is sufficient for all but the most specialist purposes. The present revision has ensured that the terminology and treatment correspond precisely to current astronomical practice. A guiding principle has been to re-establish compatibility with the Astronomical Ephemeris and, to a lesser extent, with the fuller explanations of the Explanatory Supplement to the Astronomical Ephemeris and the American Ephemeris and Nautical Almanac. Fairly frequent comments added to the text indicate the sometimes modified relevance of the subject matter to modern astronomy. A number of additional exercises help to illustrate the new material.

Overcoming Textbook Fatigue
HK$ 206.00 HK$ 242.00
Kobo

Overcoming textbook fatigue means reaching within and beyond the textbook to access all sorts of 21st century tools, the same ones that students will be using in college, careers, and daily life-ReLeah Cossett LentTextbook fatigue is a malaise that negatively affects teachers and students. It is the result of scripted programs and step-by-step teachers' manuals that dismiss the individualization of schools, teachers, and students. Because textbooks provide a one-way distillation of information aimed at a broad, generic population, they offer little to engage or pique the interest of the 30 individuals in a classroom. In this example-packed book, ReLeah Cossett Lent shows how educators can reclaim the curriculum by shifting the textbook from sole source to resource. She also gives advice on using Common Core State Standards throughout the school and in the classroom. Teachers, coaches, curriculum coordinators, and administrators will discover proven techniques that will revitalize teaching and learning in every content area:*Discipline-specific writing activities that extend and deepen lessons*Strategies for using content-specific materials that encourage students to "read to learn."*Effective vocabulary strategies that work throughout the curriculum*Methods to tap into and build background knowledge*Fun activities that use relevant life skills to involve and engage students in learning. Lent highlights what's to be gained from loosening the grip on textbooks and provides practical guidance on how to accomplish that goal, using real-life examples from schools that have made the change. Overcoming Textbook Fatigue is brimming with ideas to restore the joy of teaching and learning and, in the process, boost student achievement. Lent is a 20-year teaching veteran, an award-winning author, and an experienced international consultant specializing in literacy and communities of practice.

Tyranny of the Textbook
HK$ 199.00 HK$ 247.00
Kobo

Educational reforms and standards have been a topic of public debate for decades, with the latest go-round being the State Common Core Curriculum Standards. But time and again those reforms have failed, and each set of standards, no matter how new and different, has had little impact on improving student achievement. Why? The textbooks. Textbooks sell based on design and superficial features, not because they are based on the latest research on how children learn and how well they promote student achievement. In Tyranny of the Textbook, Beverlee Jobrack, retired from educational publishing, sheds light on why this happens. She gives an engaging and fascinating look behind-the-scenes of how K-12 textbooks are developed, written, adopted, and sold. And, perhaps most importantly, she clearly spells out how the system can change so that reforms and standards have a shot at finally being effective. Did you know?Reform efforts have focused on writing and rewriting standards and tests, but these rarely have any effect on the core curriculum that is published. School districts and states don't use effectiveness as a criterion for evaluating and purchasing textbooks. Publishers don't offer textbooks with better content or the latest teaching methods because teachers don't want textbooks that require them to change their practices. Teachers report that they don't rely on a textbook in their class, but research shows that they do. Three companies publish 75 percent of the K-12 educational materials. Those three companies are producing similar programs with the same instructional strategies, none of which require teachers to change their practices significantly. Publishers write textbooks for California and Texas. All of the other markets have to make do with books only superficially adjusted for their states.

Kobo

This book provides a simplified, yet comprehensive, overview of the signalling pathways operating between and inside cells, which will help younger oncologists find their way in the labyrinth of signalling pathways and in the multitude of signals and signal receptors, transducers and effectors that contribute to oncogenesis. This comprehensive reference text is based on the master's courses delivered by Prof. Jacques Robert to graduate students at the University of Bordeaux, France. It includes a large number of colour schemas and figures that have been improved year after year for educational purposes. Signalling pathways are described individually and in depth, but without ignoring the multiplicity of interconnections and crosstalk. The presentation of each pathway is followed by a brief description of the alterations found in cancers as well as of the targeted pharmacological approaches that can beused to prevent or overcome the consequences of these oncogenic alterations. The basic mechanisms of molecular biology at the DNA replication, RNA transcription and protein activity levels are presented in a series of didactic annexes, enabling readers to better understand the alterations in signalling pathways.

Textbook of Pistols and Revolvers
HK$ 144.00 HK$ 180.00
Kobo

Originally published in 1935, Textbook of Pistols and Revolvers is a treatise on handguns of the early twentieth century. Written by Major Julian S. Hatcher, an expert on the subject of firearms of all sorts, readers will gain invaluable insight into everything to do with handheld firearms of the 1930s. In his introduction, Hatcher emphasizes that he has made an earnest effort to make this book accessible for both novices and experts. Novices who know nothing whatsoever about firearms and their use can easily learn from this book, while experts will find a technical reference book where the results of many experiments with pistols and revolvers and their ammunition are tabulated in convenient form." Covering such subjects as the different methods of shooting and using hand firearms; their mechanism, care and repair; their interior and exterior ballistics; the peculiar suitability of the different kinds for various purposes; the relative effectiveness or stopping power of the various calibers and types of gun and ammunition; and many more, this book is an immense store of knowledge on early handguns. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for hunters and firearms enthusiasts. We publish books about shotguns, rifles, handguns, target shooting, gun collecting, self-defense, archery, ammunition, knives, gunsmithing, gun repair, and wilderness survival. We publish books on deer hunting, big game hunting, small game hunting, wing shooting, turkey hunting, deer stands, duck blinds, bowhunting, wing shooting, hunting dogs, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

In the third book 'Rasskaz-kanonizatsiya' there also is a second, historical storyline, following a Russian professor who fled his country after the Bolshevik 1917 Revolution. Their lives cross… in the book. The author would greatly appreciate your feedback here on Amazon. Based on years of his language teaching experience Ignaty was keen to write a series of stories that would teach useful vocabulary and grammar after some of his business clients complained that existing textbooks were boring and had no relation to real life."I was inspired by the talent of Mikhail Bulgakov, who mastered the skill of talking about complex subjects in an ironic form, I began writing the book which you can now see", says Ignaty Dyakov. So his textbooks are fascinating detective stories with characters from different cultural backgrounds meeting in Guadeloupe, Russia and Europe. They live, love, work and relax. And most importantly they fight the world's evil, show exceptional ethics both in life and their work and give us better understanding of what is kinder and ethical life. Mr Dyakov said: "There is an understanding that a textbook nowadays should be kind, humorous and inviting as there is far too much negativity around us, especially in the media and on social networks".Applied in all Ignaty's books is an innovative and unusual textbook technique, which has already received much acclaim from eminent Russian specialists."Undoubtedly, this textbook makes language learning more fun, interesting and thus less challenging.

Textbook of Penile Cancer
HK$ 1,722.00 HK$ 1,914.00
Kobo

Textbook of Penile Cancer reports accurately on recent developments in the management of penile cancer, whilst also covering the fundamentals of the disease, to provide a comprehensive, stand-alone and up-to-date volume on the subject. The surgical management of penile cancer is shifting towards increasingly refined methods, as it is believed that a proportion of patients undergo overtreatment for the disease. Where traditionally the management of penile cancer has involved partial or total penectomy combined with radical inguinal lymphadenectomy, over the last few years the treatment involves conservative penile reconstructive surgery such that sexual function and phallic length is preserved. Furthermore, the increasing utilization of sentinel lymph node biopsy rather than radical inguinal lymphadenectomy prevents the unnecessary removal of lymph nodes in patients where lymph node metastases has not occurred. There is also likely to be a change in the role of chemotherapy and radiotherapy for advanced disease. Textbook of Penile Cancer covers the epidemiology, molecular biology, radiological imaging, as well as the latest surgical advances in the treatment of this disease. This book is a valuable reference tool for Urological Surgeons, Genitourinary Physicians, Trainee Surgeons, Plastic Surgeons, Oncologists, Dermatologists and Sexual Health Physicians.

Studying methods with a textbook

Picking up a textbook and reading it from front to back will not help you understand the subject in detail. Often times, these students will often struggle to understand the subject and probably not do well on their tests. Here are a few effective studying methods for getting the most out of a textbook.

The fundamentals

First and foremost, multiply the number of pages you have to read by 5 minutes. If possible, start with the number of pages for each chapter. Make sure to keep in mind the number of hours needed before you schedule your reading time. If the time calculated is 3 hours, make sure to avoid reading it in one sitting. The best way to do so is to spread out the timing throughout the day. For example, consider getting an hour of reading before class starts or you can do so over the lunch break.

During your reading session, it would be beneficial to have a highlighter, pen or pencil and paper in hand. It is highly recommended to write notes in the book itself. However, if you are not allowed to do so for whatever reason, you may also use post-its to jot down notes.

Follow a system

After learning the basics of textbook reading, you may also want to follow a systematic pattern such as P2R, which stands for preview, read actively, and review.

Preview

Before you preview your textbook make sure to divide it into a 10-page chunk. You can start previewing your textbook by reading titles in each section. If there are no titles, read the lines of the first paragraph continued by the last paragraph. Do get a glimpse of the visuals used on the pages. At the end of the 10-page chunk, do study questions or look through the summaries given.

Read actively

To avoid breaking your flow, it is best not to take notes or highlight while you read. This is because; you might not know what the importance of the first sentence is until you have read a couple more sentences, which might be the real point of the whole paragraph. Thus, it is advisable to complete reading a paragraph before determining the points to highlight or take notes.

Review

After the ten-page chunk, recap the section that you have just read. Take a clean sheet of paper and write down the summary at the top of your head. It is not needed to be the exact words from the textbook. You can repeat the process when you have completed 10-pages. Once you have completed reading the textbook, you may re-read the notes to have a better understanding of the subject.

Other things to keep in mind

At times, the subject that you are studying on might be quite dry or boring and relating to something that interest you may just be the solution. For example, try relating physics with a type of sport. You may be surprised at how much science is applicable to our daily life. A great way for you to process the material is to try reading it out loud.

Enhance your knowledge with other books such as biography, psychology, religion, and history.
