Centre for normativity and narrative This is the website of the Centre for Normativity and Narrative, based in the Philosophy Department of the University of Hertfordshire. The Centre belongs to the London Advanced Study Philosophy Programme and the Forum for European Philosophy. It aims to promote research and dialogue in the areas of normativity (what one ought to do, think, feel, and so on) and narrative (understood as the linear and meaningful, but not necessarily literary, structure of thought and/or action). It is also concerned with other areas of philosophy, with emphasis on philosophy of mind and the history of philos From New Humbul Resources on October 10, 2005 at 10:30 p.m..


The philosophical gourmet report The philosophical gourmet report ranks graduate philosophy departments throughout the English-speaking world annually, primarily on the basis of the quality of their faculty, but also taking into account the scope of individual faculty members and their availability in the short term. It is edited by Brian Leiter (University of Texas at Austin), and is the result of a survey of professional philosophers, who rate departments with a view to their attractiveness for prospective graduate students. The nature of the survey, the names of those philosophers surveyed, and the method and criteria of From New Humbul Resources on October 10, 2005 at 10:30 p.m..

Exploring Literary Criticism in Film and Literature The purpose of my project was to explore the mythic roots in film and literature. I researched the theory of archetypes and literary/film devices, read a number of novels/novellas and then viewed their film version to explore how each story conformed to a mythic tradition.

Guided Writing Guided writing involves the teacher working with small groups of students. In guided writing students apply the understandings they have gained from modelled and shared writing sessions, with varying degrees of support from the teacher. The students explore aspects of the writing process, which have been demonstrated. The teacher predetermines the teaching focus from observations and analysis of students' writing. The session is focussed on specific aspects of writing that students need to develop. From EdNA Online on October 10, 2005 at 2:55 a.m..

Three Generations of Women in My Family (Oral History Project) This oral history project was inspired by Anne Firor Scott who described how it could be done on the H-Women listserv... and challenged her readers to do it in the classroom. My intro WS students loved doing this project - some did better than others though, so I didn't put them all up online. When the students (and their family members) saw the results online and knew that the oral history tapes were placed in the University Oral History archives for future scholars to use them in their research -- they were so proud! This teaching and learning experience meant so much to them and me. I From MERLOT - 10 Most Recent Materials on October 10, 2005 at 2:12 a.m..


Inquiry Method on the Web for Intro Western Civ Course This course was an experiment for me in developing an online environment to support my face-to-face classes in introductory History of Western Civilization. Using the Internet for research had become all the rage for my students and this was my attempt to acknowledge this trend and to model -- in class -- how to analyze the myriad online resources and determine which ones (or which parts) relate to the topics we are studying. In-class group work after the 15 minute intro of the online website became standard and many used the in-class group to study out of class.

It talks about the obstacles to change, the foreign capital company syndrome, and a ten-step recommendation for handling change. I found this article very interesting especially when it talks about the foreign capital company syndrome, “the negative cycle of misunderstanding and misguided efforts.” From MERLOT - 10 Most Recent Materials on October 10, 2005 at 2:12 a.m..
