Creating a Self-Directed Learning Environment: Standards-Based and Social-Emotional Learning

Educate the whole child—improve the whole school.”

— Greg Mullen

REDONDO BEACH, CA, UNITED STATES, December 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Educate the whole child—improve the whole school.

Implementing evidence-based and innovative teaching practices can feel like juggling: if you have standards-based
learning in one hand and social-emotional learning in the other, what do you do with cognitive development? This book shows you how to balance all three, combining these concepts into manageable, realistic plans for success.

In clear, easy-to-follow language, master teacher and educational expert Greg Mullen introduces a flexible, three-tiered, visual framework designed for school-wide collaboration.

He also offers:
• An integrated philosophy focused on self-directed learning and the whole child
• Research sourced from CASEL and state programs and initiatives
• Attention to academic inclusion, behavior intervention, and classroom management
• Numerous illustrations, tables, and graphics
• Tools and supplemental resources for implementation

Creating a Self-Directed Learning Environment is a skillfully balanced presentation for how to thoughtfully design
and implement content standards, progress monitoring, and social emotional learning in the modern classroom.”

“Get To Wow!”, a self-guiding book, takes students, adult learners, businesses, makers and searchers on the path to activating their inner Social Entrepreneur

"Get To Wow!" is a practical but fun guide enabling readers to become active social entrepreneurs. Readers "Get To Wow!" at their own pace, supported by GCSEN material easily accessed at www.gcsen.com”

— Mike Caslin

KINGSTON, NY, USA, December 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new book entitled, “Get To Wow! Exploring Your Inner Social Entrepreneur” has been co-authored and published by the leadership team of GCSEN, The Global Center for Social Entrepreneurship Network (GCSEN Foundation) and a college president. The book, written in an innovative, graphic style, is a self-starting guidebook and life-map for anyone having the desire to “make meaning, make money and move the world to a better place”, as stated on the book’s front cover. The book can be purchased on the www.gcsen.com/getwow site, at local bookstores and on Amazon.

Authored by Mike Caslin, Founder and President of GCSEN, and co-authored by GCSEN’s Managing Director Tony DiMarco and consultant Harv Hilowitz, with additional authorship credit to Dennis Hanno, President of Wheaton College (MA), the book takes students, adult learners, businesspeople, makers and searchers on the path to finding and activating their inner social entrepreneur. Social Entrepreneurs run economically sustainable businesses and non-profits with a “4 P” mission, addressing an entrenched social problem to benefit People, Profit, Planet & Place.
“Get To Wow!” is largely based on previous educational offerings from GCSEN, notably the organization’s highly regarded on-line blended-learning courses with personalized coaching. Not a textbook, this unique book takes readers on a practical journey of self-exploration through social venture start-up in 120 graphically rich pages. Filled with inspirational messages encouraging readers to find their passion to start a sustainable business or non-profit that can make positive contributions to their communities and for the world, the book offers a practical roadmap for starting a successful social venture which addresses an entrenched social problem.

Author Mike Caslin said about the effort, “About a year ago, Harv Hilowitz and I discussed the need for a practical but fun guide enabling readers in the general public to identify their passions and become active social entrepreneurs. There are many college textbooks on the market about business and social entrepreneurism, but none for the wider market that is seeking practical advice and guidance for starting up an actual social business venture. The unique graphic style envisioned by Harv and beautifully fulfilled by graphic designer Sharon Wasko helps readers Get To Wow at their own pace. Readers are supported by GCSEN videos and supplementary material easily accessed on our website, www.gcsen.com. We invite readers to take the journey and Get To Wow with us.”

The event was the brainchild of the College’s Venture Hub initiative, designed to bring the Hudson Valley’s entrepreneur ecosystem together to exchange innovative ideas and energy for startups.

GCSEN recently announced that it was chosen as the recipient of a fourth consecutive Diana Davis Spencer Foundation (DDSF) Innovation In Entrepreneurship Education Grant. The prestigious award, by invitation only, was for $700,000, representing DDSF’s historic support of $3.1M to GCSEN since its inception in 2015.

Lydia Lopokova, An Album of Camera Portraits, 1920, with The cover art by Arabella Yorke, portrait frontispiece in sanguine by Glyn Philpot, nine full-page pochoir illustrations, and a portrait by Picasso. Estimate $200-$400

Interior pages from Ballet, Alexey Brodovich, 1945 compilation of photographs of classical dancers, one of 500 produced, retains dust jacket. Estimate $800-$1,200

1920 two-volume set titled Ruth St Denis: Pioneer and Prophet, authored by Ted Shawn and signed by both Shawn and St Denis, co-founders of the Denishawn School of Dancing and Related Arts in Los Angeles. Estimate $200-$300

Le Ballet, by Boris Kochno with Maria Luz, Hachette (France), 1954, includes this Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973) lithograph, which is seldom present in copies of this book. Estimate $400-$600

The Dance Library is a 60-year privately held assemblage of historical literature, correspondence, ephemera and illustrations pertaining to classical dance.

Leslie and Donald served as lifetime stewards to an extraordinary archive that has few peers, since much of it was amassed at a time when the field of dance literature was still in its infancy. ”

— Catherine Payling

FALLS CHURCH, VA, UNITED STATES, December 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Thursday, Dec. 12, Quinn’s Auction Galleries will host a single-consignor auction of the Getz-McDonagh Dance Library, a 60-year privately held assemblage of historical literature, correspondence, ephemera and illustrations pertaining to classical dance. Originally known as the Getz Dance Library, in reference to its founder Leslie Getz (1945-2019), it is also known to many in the dance community internationally as the Getz-McDonagh Dance Library. Donald McDonagh is Leslie Getz’s steadfastly supportive husband, who shared his wife’s passion for dance and took an active partnership role in the library’s growth and maintenance until the day of his wife’s passing.

Leslie Getz’s June 2, 2019 obituary in the New York Times described her as “a widely known, valued and admired member of the New York City dance community,” noting that she also created, edited and published Attitudes and Arabesques, a monthly newsletter of worldwide dance periodicals and publications.

“Leslie and Donald occupied two New York apartments belonging to Columbia University, one of them allocated entirely to the library,” said Catherine Payling, director of Quinn’s Rare Books division. “They were devoted to dance and served as lifetime stewards to an extraordinary archive that has few peers, if any, since much of it was amassed at a time when the field of dance literature was still in its infancy.”

The library’s 6,800+ books and thousands of periodicals, souvenir programs, press kits, annotated playbills and other ephemera will be offered by Quinn’s in approximately 350 auction lots. Also included is a small selection of dance illustrations.

One of the top highlights is Ballet by Alexey Brodovich, a 1945 collection of his photographs of dancers. From a small edition of 500, the book was designed with stiff cardboard “boards” that would have tended to become fragile over time. The library example is in uncommonly nice condition with its dust jacket. Estimate: $800-$1,200

Le Ballet, by Boris Kochno with Maria Luz, published in 1954 by Hachette, France, features a Matisse (French, 1869-1954) illustration of a ballerina on its binding and the bonus inclusion of a Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973) lithograph, which is still present in the book to be auctioned. “It is unusual to find a copy of this book with the lithograph intact,” Payling observed. Estimate: $400-$600

A 1920 book titled Lydia Lopokova, An Album of Camera Portraits, is dance-focused but not expressly about ballet. The cover art is by Arabella Yorke, while the portrait frontispiece in sanguine was created by Glyn Philpot. Additionally, there are nine full-page pochoir illustrations, an interior portrait by Picasso, three decorations, and an appreciation by publisher Cyril W. Beaumont, London. Its estimate is $200-$400.

A 1935 Cyril Beaumont-authored and published book titled Michel Fokine & His Ballets is a hardcover octavo edition with gilt lettering and decoration on the spine. The book contains Fokine’s uncommonly encountered ink signature on a plate pasted onto the title page. The auction estimate is $100-$200. Beaumont, who wrote extensively about ballet, also edited the four-volume A Bibliography of the Dance Collection of Doris Niles & Serge Leslie, published 1966-1981. The set is offered at auction together with an unpublished Serge Leslie typescript about Beaumont, with tipped-in photographs and handwritten edits, contained in a three-ring binder. The lot also includes a 1998 letter from Leslie to Getz, and a photo of the three friends. Estimate: $100-$200

Two sketches of female dancers by Robert Huot, which were artist-signed and inscribed, then gifted to Donald McDonagh by the artist and his then-wife Twyla Tharp, are entered in the sale with a $160-$260 estimate. Other lots with a direct connection to legends of modern dance include a 1920 two-volume set titled Ruth St Denis: Pioneer and Prophet, authored by Ted Shawn and signed by both Shawn and St Denis. In 1915, St Denis and Shawn presciently founded the Denishawn School of Dancing and Related Arts in Los Angeles. It was the first dance academy in the United States to produce a professional dance company and included amongst its students Martha Graham, Charles Weidman and even the silent film star Louise Brooks. The two-volume set is estimated at $200-$300. Also, there are books and items of ephemera signed by Isadora Duncan, Margot Fonteyn, Alicia Markova, Maya Plisetskaya, and others.

Evidence of the warm friendships fostered within the dance and greater arts communities during the 20th century is clearly seen in the collection of 18 letters, notes and telegrams to and from Doris Niles, Serge Leslie and Sacheverell Sitwell, a noted art and music critic, and poet. The intimate archive from the 1970s/’80s also includes seven softbound books of poems by Sitwell, in a pink and purple case. Estimate: $200-$400

Also featured in the auction is an unbroken run of issues of Dance Magazine dating back to 1948; and issues of Britain’s Dancing Times dating as early as 1918. “Leslie Getz put protective wrappers around all of her books and publications, so the magazines are in beautiful, clean condition,” Payling said.

The Dec. 12, 2019 auction of the Getz-McDonagh Dance Library will commence at 6 p.m. Eastern Time. For additional information about any item in the sale, call Catherine Payling at 703-532-5632 ext. 575, or email catherine.payling@quinnsauction.com. For preview times, visit Quinn’s online at www.quinnsauction.com. The entire auction catalog may be viewed online via LiveAuctioneers.

“I Want a Tyrannosaurus For Christmas” Stomps Into Stores For The Holiday Season

Max Hawthorne's new kid's book, I Want a Tyrannosaurus for Christmas

I Want a Tyrannosaurus for Christmas, by Max Hawthorne

A young boy gets a dinosaur this holiday season, in, I Want a Tyrannosaurus For Christmas, by Max Hawthorne

Young Billy chasing Tyron the Tyrannosaurus in, I Want a Tyrannosaurus For Christmas, by Max Hawthorne

Author Max Hawthorne Gives Kids What They Really Want This Holiday Season: a Dinosaur!

One of the cutest books to come on the market for children.This book is perfect to snuggle up and share with a child, as the beautiful illustrations really capture a child's attention.”

— -Dr. Melissa Caudle, bestselling author of A Day at the Zoo

BUCKINGHAM, PA, US, December 7, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the ongoing success of such dinosaur driven franchises as the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World series (both books and films), it’s only natural for there to be like-minded children’s books for budding paleontologists.

Enter, I Want a Tyrannosaurus For Christmas (Far From The Tree Press, LLC), the endearing story of a young boy named Billy who ends up getting, of all things, a baby T-rex in his stocking. The book is the brainchild of author Max Hawthorne, author of the award-winning Kronos Rising novels, a series of high-octane suspense thrillers a la the aforementioned Michael Crichton. that explore the ramifications of giant prehistoric marine reptiles vying with mankind for dominance over today’s oceans.

When asked about the challenges of going from crafting sci-fi/suspense thrillers for adults to writing a well thought out children’s book, Hawthorne said, “It wasn’t as tough as you might think. As a writer who pens books about giant dinosaurs, I’m basically a big kid at heart, so channeling my inner child comes easily. Plus, courtesy of having the most amazing daughter imaginable, I’m an RSD (Registered Super Dad), so I had a lot to draw upon.”

I Want a Tyrannosaurus For Christmas brings a lot to the holiday table, beyond just incredible artwork, courtesy of artist Bojan Radovanovic, who was sought out by Hawthorne personally for this venture. Walt Disney artist Jason Zucker called the story a "Perfect read for young dinosaur fans who have always wanted a dinosaur of their own . . . filled with messages of kindness, giving, and friendship!"

“In addition to the adorable story that is the core of the book, I wanted to subtly explore and address issues that both kids and parents can relate to,” Hawthorne explained. “The holidays can be a tough time for many. Billy’s dad is away on another long business trip, he’s lost his pet iguana, and he’s forced to deal with bullies at the school bus stop each morning that like to pick on him and his best friend, Javier.”

In the story, Billy’s not the only one with problems. Up at the North Pole, Santa’s workshop is under siege by a mischievous baby Tyrannosaurus they’ve been forced to take in. Eventually, it’s decided by Santa’s head elf, Xavier – who has a unique plot twist of his own, which takes place later in the story – that “Tyron” the “Tyron-o-saurus” would be better off in the care of a particularly deserving and needy child: Billy. Of course, once taken in, Tyron grows by leaps and bounds, and by the time Christmas vacation is over he is literally as big as a house. His final reveal as Billy rides him to the school bus stop, where he and Tyron address the issue of bullying once and for all, is truly something to see.

I Want a Tyrannosaurus For Christmas is available via Amazon in both softcover and Kindle formats, and through Barnes and Noble in soft and hardcover versions.

Diabetic Retinopathy Market 2019 Global Analysis, Opportunities And Forecast To 2025

New Study On “2019-2025 Diabetic Retinopathy Market Global Key Player, Demand, Growth, Opportunities and Analysis Forecast” Added to Wise Guy Reports Database

PUNE, MAHARASHTRA, INDIA, December 6, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Report Overview:

Among diabetic patients, diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease. It is of two types, non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy and proliferative advanced diabetic retinopathy. The early phase of the disease in which the blood vessels in the retina are weakened is non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy. The developed form of disease in which the retina is deprived of oxygen owing to circulation issues is proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Tests such as fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography can be used to diagnose diabetic retinopathy. The treatment includes injection of intraocular steroid, laser therapy, anti-VEGF therapy, vitrectomy, and others. The diabetic retinopathy market shows potential development with increased diabetes incidence and increased awareness of diabetes management.

Market Dynamics: Drivers, Restraints, Opportunities Challenges
• High prevalence of disease and Favorable reimbursement policies available for ophthalmologic surgeries
Increasing diabetes prevalence along with increased incidence of diabetes-related blindness is expected to boost market growth over the forecast period. The number of individuals with diabetes has risen from 108 million adults in 1980 to around 422 million adults in 2014, according to World Health Organization estimates. Moreover, the worldwide incidence of diabetes also increased in 2014, at approximately 8.5% in the adult population, compared to 4.7% in 1980. Approximately 78.0 percent of diabetic retinopathy instances were recorded in 2013, according to statistics provided by the Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS), Texas, which could eventually lead to vision loss. Advantageous reimbursement policies for ophthalmologic surgery should have a positive impact on the development of the market for diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is a chronic condition in elderly individuals that affects the eyes and causes blindness.

Key Segments
Diabetic retinopathy Market by Disease Type
• Proliferative
• Non-proliferative

Diabetic retinopathy Market by Management
• Anti VEGF
• Intraocular steroid injection
• Laser surgery
• Vitrectomy

Geographic Landscape

North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa can categorize the worldwide Diabetic retinopathy therapy market based on region.

Battling Dark Forces in the Wilds

Samuil and the Legendary Snow Owl by Randall Stephens

Samuil and the Legendary Snow Owl, Author successfully fuses an unlikely duo of literary genres in new epic fantasy book

This first volume’s magical crescendo should create loyal readers who will return for more fairy tale–style grandeur.”

— Kirkus Reviews

WATERLOO, AL, USA, December 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Randall Stephens proudly announces the international release of his debut historical fantasy book, “Samuil and the Legendary Snow Owl,” the first entry in a planned trilogy. In this action-packed adventure; a boy with unusual abilities and a love for the forest finds himself, his girlfriend, and his peculiar best friend; the target of shadow creatures for mysterious reasons.

In the 1840s, P'etro Fedorchak narrowly escapes death while fighting for Russia in the Allied Shadow War. After receiving a land grant for his heroic services. He marries Ilia, a girl he saved from stampeding horses, and relocates to the shores of the enchanted Black Sea. The family cabin is near the edge of the legendary Southern Forest. Deep in the Bogs a mysterious shadow fog is transforming forest animals into deadly shadow creatures.

While Ilia gives birth to their son, Samuil, P'etro fights off hordes of demons drawn by the delivery. As a troubled boy struggling with his emotions and unique abilities, Samuil often escapes to the serenity of the forest and finds peace while listening to the singing river and befriending forest creatures.

As the shadow creatures’ aggressions escalate, Samuil befriends Nikolai of the Caves; an eccentric time traveling wizard with an old hound named Wolf Killer, and the Legendary Snow Owl. Together they engage in a spin-chilling cosmic battle on Devils Island. Only time will tell whether they’ll survive long enough to claim their extraordinary destiny.

The book continues to garner positive feedback from both professional book reviewers and readers alike. Kirkus Book Review states, “For his series opener, Stephens offers a fantasy focusing on primal good and evil that should entrance fans of The Lord of the Rings trilogy…This first volume’s magical crescendo should create loyal readers who will return for more fairy tale–style grandeur. A captivating start to an Eastern-flavored and methodically built fantasy epic."

“With plenty of epic battles, a varied cast of otherworldly creatures and a central narrative pitting the forces of good against evil, Stephens’ novel can safely be categorized as a fantasy. However, it also boasts a dynamic reminiscent of Dostoyevsky or Chekov, offering an eye for in-depth psychological character development and intense interpersonal drama straight out of a Russian novel…
Stephens offers plenty of clear and concise action, and his skill for creating strong characters makes the first entry in the series engaging and memorable,” says a reviewer from BlueInk Review.

Dream Expert Linda Yael Schiller to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

WATERTOWN, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, December 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dreams are one of the most profound, enigmatic, and powerful activities of our mind and our soul. For those who yearn for healing, purpose and deeper connection, dreams hold the creative insights and solutions to the problems that hold you back. They are also fun to understand.

The meaning of your dreams belongs to you; the dreamer. In other words, they are personal, with relevance to your life. While a dream dictionary might give you some useful associations, your dream and the images in it are specific to you. A dream can have more than one meaning, the first layers of the dream are about your life, however additional layers may have meaning or connections for broader worlds as well. Decoding dreams requires that we move beyond our own limited understanding to a deeper and fuller knowledge of the gifts and connections dreams bring to our life and the lives of others.

Linda Yael Schiller is the psychotherapist for the soul, integrating traditional therapeutic styles and techniques with expressive, energy psychology, and body-based modalities, including Dreamwork.

“Our philosophy is that we are guides to help people understand their dreams,” says Schiller. “I don't tell someone what their dream means. I provide questions, and I might have some ideas, but ultimately the dreamer confirms whether an interpretation is correct.”

Sometimes we dream of events or issues in our current life. Sometimes the dream highlights issues from a long time ago that we haven't fully processed or healed from. This is particularly the case in recurrent dreams.

Schiller says that to remember and learn from your dreams, a great place to start is by considering them to be important. She recommends setting up an optimal situation for successful remembering, which begins by having a journal with a pen next to your bed at night to record them.

“I believe we know more than we think. We aren’t used to trusting intuition enough in the Western world. We're very left brain, very linear, logical. But when we slow down, move into more contemplative practices and tune into the wisdom of our ancestors, we have access to deeper understanding.”

Schiller is the author of Modern Dreamwork: New Tools For Decoding Your Soul's Wisdom. Modern Dreamwork offers a hands-on guide to several different approaches to working with and interpreting your dreams. Through this dreamwork, you can understand and resolve difficult decisions or issues with confidence.

“My hope is that anyone who wants to connect with their highest wisdom reads this book,” says Schiller. “Anyone who's interested in learning about themselves at a deeper level can find something that speaks to them.”

“I'm fortunate enough to have a profession where I can both make a living and repair the world at the same time,” says Schiller: “I am honored to be a part of my clients’ journeys, seeing the capacity that people have to heal and grow and change.”

Schiller is a member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams.

CUTV News Radio will feature Linda Yael Schiller in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on December 9th at 4pm EDT.
