Selectors 5.1 Pattern matching In CSS, pattern matching rules determine which style rules apply to elements in the document tree. These patterns, called selectors, may range from simple element names to rich contextual patterns. If all conditions in the pattern are true for a certain element, the selector Some Excellent Rubric Generators for Teachers July 3, 2016 A few days ago we published here in EdTech and mLearning a collection of some interesting web tools teachers can use to create educational rubrics. Today, we are adding this wonderful resource from Teachnology which is basically a huge selection of pre-made rubrics and rubric generators that can be integrated into different subject areas. As we have argued elsewhere, rubrics are helpful for both teachers and students: teachers can use them when designing lesson plans and grading assignments; students can use them to make sure they meet the learning expectations and requirements of an assignment or project work. Teachnology’s rubrics are arranged into 10 main categories: general, language arts, learn about them, math, pre-made collection, process, rubric maker membership, science, social studies, and all rubrics.
Funny Rag / Toon's Rag I've long been a fully paid up member of Tisserand's fan club, and so it should come as no surprise that to me this writer hits the nail on the head every time.These two modest little fun duets are both rags, and both written in straight rhythms on the page, with the instruction to make the quavers into a triplet of quavers.Funny Rag is, as you might guess, full of humour with lots of bluesy melodies and quirky rhythmic ideas, with a memorable main theme and lots of light-hearted antics along the way. The coda comes about after a gradual build up of notes leading to a run in both parts of triplet quavers and a humorous almost throwaway ending: lovely.Toon's Rag begins with staccato seventh chords sliding down the fingerboard, leading into a cheeky little tune built on a glissando.
CLIL: A lesson framework Underlying principles Classroom principles Lesson framework Conclusion Underlying principles The principles behind Content and Language Integrated Learning include global statements such as 'all teachers are teachers of language' (The Bullock Report - A Language for Life, 1975) to the wide-ranging advantages of cross-curricular bilingual teaching in statements from the Content and Language Integrated Project (CLIP). The benefits of CLIL may be seen in terms of cultural awareness, internationalisation, language competence, preparation for both study and working life, and increased motivation. While CLIL may be the best-fit methodology for language teaching and learning in a multilingual Europe, the literature suggests that there remains a dearth of CLIL-type materials, and a lack of teacher training programmes to prepare both language and subject teachers for CLIL teaching.

E-mail Us firstname.lastname@example.org Selectors Level 3 Abstract Selectors are patterns that match against elements in a tree, and as such form one of several technologies that can be used to select nodes in an XML document. Selectors have been optimized for use with HTML and XML, and are designed to be usable in performance-critical code. CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a language for describing the rendering of HTML and XML documents on screen, on paper, in speech, etc. CSS uses Selectors for binding style properties to elements in the document. This document describes the selectors that already exist in CSS1 [CSS1] and CSS2 [CSS21], and further introduces new selectors for CSS3 and other languages that may need them.
An Excellent Collection of Educational Rubrics to Help You Integrate Technology in Your Teaching July 9, 2016 Rubrics are integral to the teaching and learning process taking place inside the classroom. ‘Rubrics are scoring charts used to assess and evaluate a particular learning or teaching activity. As is explained in this guide, rubrics are helpful for both teachers and students: teachers can use them when designing lesson plans and grading assignments; students can use them to make sure they meet the learning expectations and requirements of an assignment or project work.’ In today’s post, we are re-sharing with you a wonderful resource from University of Wisconsin which will help you make the best of rubrics in your teaching.
Our Great Solace in Our Great Need "Born in 1670 in County Meath, Ireland, Turlough O'Carolan was a harpist, composer and singer whose music has been passed down over the generations and has made him a national musical figure. Blind (from smallpox) from the age of 18, this did not stop him traversing the length and breadth of Ireland and composing well over 200 compositions. This new publication contains just twelve of O'Carolan's harp pieces; Pascal Bournet has chosen well here and has not gone for the usual suspects presenting instead some perhaps lesserknown compositions. Titles are: Carolan's Welcome; Carolan's Ramble to Castiel; Heuilett; O'Flunn; James Betagh; Betagh's Jig; Lady Saint John; Lord Inchiquin; Mrs, Crojton; Henry MacDermott Roe; Bumper Squire Jones; Hugh O'Donnell. Musically, the programme veers more towards the up-tempo side of things and is, in general, full of highly melodic material. Steve Marsh (Classical Guitar Magazine)
