Not Musical Enough

Not Musical Enough

Автор: Helen Roberts

This book explores music identity for students training to teach children aged 3-11. The personal stories of the teaching students, collected through narrative methods, raised important issues related to the judgements they made about their music teaching abilities. Symbolic interactionism and social constructionism underpinned the development of a complex picture of students’ musical identity for teaching. The perceived hegemony of western high art music appeared to be used as a benchmark they used to say they were ‘Not musical enough’ to teach. They were musically capable but found the real strictures and their perception of schools’ expectations inhibited their musical identity. This will be of interest to academics in the field of music and teacher education, to musicians and youth workers interested in supporting young people to find their own musical ‘voice’.

Gene expression studies in preantral follicles of Sheep

Gene expression studies in preantral follicles of Sheep

Автор: Dangudubiyyam Srividya,K. Veera bramhaiah and V. H. Rao

Large number of primordial follicles present in mammalian ovaries at birth, grow during the course of reproductive life primarily in size but also in complexity of the follicular structure. Among all the primordial follicles present during birth, only 1% of follicles reach the stage of ovulation, while the rest undergo atresia. In order to rescue these ovarian primordial follicles that undergo atresia, in-vitro culture of these follicles to ovulatory stage is being attempted in different species. But the fertilization rates of oocytes obtained from the cultured preantral follicles were not satisfactory probably due to the synthesis of insufficient quantities of regulatory factors and / or paracrine signals. In order to verify this hypothesis, various gene expression pattern studies have been attempted in in-vivo and in-vitro cultured preantral and early antral follicles in sheep.

Between Two Worlds

Автор: Haedy Liu

Transnational studies has increased dramatically in the last few years, particularly among Chinese students. Understanding their experience within the framework of transformative learning theory and Confucianism reveals that transformative learning takes places through the use of Chinese proverbs, sayings and metaphors, rather than discourse. These proverbs, sayings and metaphors mediate transformative learning and provide a reoriented sense of harmony, consistent with unique tenets of Confucianism.

Curricular Innovations in Language Teacher Education

Curricular Innovations in Language Teacher Education

Автор: Liliana Mata and Andreia Irina Suciu

The book focuses on identifying the possibilities of curriculum innovation for the development of language teachers’ pedagogical competenc(i)es and proposing a model for teaching languages from this perspective. The analysis starts from a series of problematic aspects encountered in the field of language teachers training and attempts to provide solutions for such aspects by proposing some scales, hierarchies and models whose application would lead to an efficient act of education in teaching languages. In this undertaking of analyzing the implementation of innovation in teaching languages it became clear that a more pragmatic approach to innovation implementation was necessary. The declared objective of any model of education has now to be judged in terms of relevance, feasibility, compatibility with the ultimate goal of achieving efficiency. Therefore, the results of education have to be measured in terms of employability, level of training of future graduates and ratio of labour…
