Academic Wordlist

The Academic Word List (AWL) was developed by Averil Coxhead at the School of Linguistics and Applied Language Studies at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. The list contains 570 word families which were selected because they appear with great frequency in a broad range of academic texts. The list does not include words that are in the most frequent 2000 words of English (the General Service List), thus making it specific to academic contexts. The AWL was primarily made so that it could be used by teachers as part of a programme preparing learners for tertiary level study or used by students working alone to learn the words most needed to study at colleges and universities. The 570 words are divided into 10 Groups.

Drawing for Change: Analyzing and Making Political Cartoons

They take jabs at powerful politicians, reveal official hypocrisies and incompetence and can even help to change the course of history. But political cartoons are not just the stuff of the past. Cartoonists are commenting on the world’s current events all the time, and in the process, making people laugh and think. At their best, they challenge our perceptions and attitudes. Analyzing political cartoons is a core skill in many social studies courses. Banksy's Dismaland 'gave Weston-super-Mare a £20m boost' Image copyright Getty Images When Banksy's anti-capitalist show Dismaland closes its doors on Sunday, the irony that it will have generated an estimated £20m in extra revenue for its surrounding area will not have been lost on traders.

Banksy's Dismaland 'gave Weston-super-Mare a £20m boost'

Over the past five weeks, more than 150,000 people have visited the subversive theme park in a derelict seafront lido, which had been shut since 2000 and reopened in a blaze of publicity on 20 August. The temporary art show in Weston-super-Mare has sold 4,000 tickets a day online, plus 500 more to people willing to queue for hours, often in pouring rain. Dismaland describes itself as offering "entry-level anarchism", and satirises the tourism and theme-park industries.

But, it is the town's tourist businesses that have reaped the benefit - to the tune of £20m, says Visit Somerset, more than three times what the trade body initially suggested. Historiana : Case Study : Suffragettes and suffragists: the campaign for women’s voting rights: Britain and the wider world. Suffragettes and suffragists: the campaign for women’s voting rights: Britain and the wider world The introduction of women's suffrage came at different times in different places.

Historiana : Case Study : Suffragettes and suffragists: the campaign for women’s voting rights: Britain and the wider world

The struggle to achieve votes for women began in the late 18th century but had little success until the early 20th century - even at the beginning of the 21st century there are still countries where votes for women are restricted or denied. One important episode in the campaign for women's suffrage was fought in Britain from about 1880 until 1918, when Parliament finally granted some women (but not all) the right to vote.

The struggle of women in Britain was similar to that of women in other similar societies: the United States, New Zealand and countries in Northern Europe, such as Finland, Iceland and Norway. By the end of the Second World War, voting rights for women had been secured in most of the developed world but this did not mean the struggle for equality was over.

Sometimes maps don't help, so you have to ask somebody for directions.

If you're in a country where they don't speak your language, this can be difficult. At other times, you will have to give directions to people visiting your country. In many cases, people just follow the direction the person was pointing to, and hope they will find the place they are looking for. The Grammar of TV and Film. Zoom. In zooming in the camera does not move; the lens is focussed down from a long-shot to a close-up whilst the picture is still being shown.

The subject is magnified, and attention is concentrated on details previously invisible as the shot tightens (contrast tracking). It may be used to surprise the viewer. Zooming out reveals more of the scene (perhaps where a character is, or to whom he or she is speaking) as the shot widens. Kids Learning Skills and Being Awesome. - DIY. Videos.
