We need to think deeply about it. Meade shares that each book of the Bible has at least one or more main arguments and important points to make. Following these arguments and points requires study. Meade shares that she looks upon her survey of the Bible as a study. The focus is on seeing the Bible as a book, with a main character that is God Himself. In His Book, he reveals His own character. What do we learn from Him about what He does?
Next, Meade shares that we need to understand that each book of the Bible was written by a human author who had a reason or intention for writing his portion of Scripture. This intention helped determine what was included in that particular book of the Bible. Even though all Scripture is God breathed, knowing to what audience and for what purpose the human author wrote the book helps us understand what he wrote.
Meade also reminds us that while the Bible is to be read and studied like a book, it is not just any book. Studying also requires hard work and diligence! God has good reason for each part that is included in Scripture. This means it is worth the work to get to know His Word well. In our guide, we will schedule Bible study daily. Students will also have memory work that will be recited at the end of each quarter.
This memory work will include memorizing the names of the Books of the Bible in order, the Ten Commandments, the 23rd Psalm, and one other passage. Students will continue to keep a daily prayer journal. They will also listen and sing hymns as part of their Bible time this year.
The plan includes Scripture reading, studying, answering questions, memorizing, recording entries in a prayer journal, and hymn study. Link to see inside PDF. Wilson and Gerald H.

Hannula Bibliographic Data — pages. Christianity is a faith in love with history. God took on human flesh and dwelt among us. The Spirit carried that divine work over the centuries, providing courage and maturity even amid our imperfections. Christians find their true family line not through tribes and ethnic blood, but in the bond of faithfulness and shed blood that has united our family for millennia.
We too often view Church history as the story of obscure people, instead of as the lives of brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers. In this collection of forty-six chronologically arranged biographies, Hannula sketches the stirring trials and triumphs of many famous and some lesser known figures in our family of faith, including Augustine, Charlemagne, Anselm, Luther, Bunyan, and Charles Spurgeon. Note: While this book is a tremendous resource for Church history, due to its mature content, we waited to use it until our students were older and more mature in their faith.
With that being said, I am excited for our students not to miss the opportunity to read this wonderful book as one part of our study of world history. Even if your students have already had exposure to this book, reading it independently as scheduled in our guide will be a different experience. This book is used as one resource within our study of world history. White Bibliographic Data — pages.

The dialogue is very believable, historically accurate, and very much in character. It is apparent that the producers of this show did their homework! The students the majority of which are aged 14 - 19 work in small teams on interesting and up-to-date subjects. They acquire the necessary knowledge on their own. Afterr choosing their research topics during the first months of their studies, they begin to solvee their problems and answer their questions by themselves through the means of open-ended experimentation during the course of which they use real and validated scientific methods.
The younger students aged work on interesting projects, proposed by the teacherss or the students themselves examples include: building of electronic devices such as liee detectors, radios or the construction of a steam engine and in doing so learn the necessary ry expertise and knowledge without direct instruction from the teachers. In particular students ts are encouraged to practice their social skills. Teachers and student-teachers act only as advisors, not as instructors, they train the students in soft skills and self-organisational al skills relating to their work.
The PhysicsClub arranges contacts between experts at universities and enterprises, which very often sponsor the equipment for the experiments. The multimedia tools developed are presented on the website. The website contains brochures relating to on-going initiatives, articles published both in science magazines and on Wikipedia together with photos and video materials relating to experiments conducted.
The development of contents on the homepage is partly supported by teacher colleagues and students. The benefits of the documentation work itself for the PhysicsClub are many and principally include: Increased Transferability of the concept to other initiatives, the High Level of Popularity amongst the users for this format type for the purpose of accessing information and the advantages of the enhanced Level of Exposure and Accessibility for the purpose of attracting sponsorship.
They are responsible for compiling reports on their work for youth research competitions or writing articles for youth research magazines. They also take pictures and sometimes create videos, but in this case these are not used for publication purposes. Numerous documents are provided concerning the methodology. An obstacle might be the fact that the documents are currently only provided in the German language, so that they would have to be translated into English or the relevant national language of those wishing to use them. The initiative requires teachers with a high level of expertise in their subjects as well as sufficient cross-curricular knowledge.
The infrastructure required includes a permanently available room, appropriate laboratory facilities and basic multimedia supports. Depending on the number of participants and also the number of projects involved, additional financial support and voluntary staff trainee teachers, university students etc. Hans-Georg Stammler - Email: georg. The emphasis is on that of children experimenting for themselves. Initially, the initiative offers a one day training programme for kindergarten teachers, enabling them to conduct experiments with the children. The third part of the project involves the children carrying out various experiments for themselves.
While conducting these experiments and having their questions clarified, science phenomena become tangible and understandable to the children. Support material for the teachers includes the Seminar Handout which provides general information about physics and w cchemistry and the Experimental Handbook. Usually the eexperiments seen in the science show are the starting ppoint for further ideas and questions from the children. The methodology involves a hands-on approach. On the one hand, the experiment iss presented following the procedures detailed in the Experimental Handbook; on the otherr hand, children have the possibility to use it as a starting point for further experiments..
The answers themselves are not provided in the form of a verbal explanation, n, but by providing instruction for common experiments, which can be carried out by thee children themselves. This also allows the teachers overcome their often commonplacee discomfort regarding physics and chemistry. In this way, further ideas, questions andd discussions are stimulated, because all senses are involved - including the pleasure of learning new things, experienced by both the pupils and teachers while carrying out the he experiments.
For example, one experiment to start off with could be to prove that air is everywhere by immersing an inverted glass into a bowl of water. It has a national impact and dimension: To date the project has been performed in about 40 pre-primary schools, involving about teachers and many thousands of children. The website contains detailed documentation regarding the project and a free handbook for pre-primary school teachers, including guidelines for carrying out the experiments.
Numerous photos, some of them with comments together with an informative video serve to illustrate the science show performed by Luftikus and his puppet Helius. On request, the provider can supply a DVD that documents the whole play and gives further background information as well. The support and project documentation was compiled in co-operation with teachers, pedagogues and chemists. The interaction and activities of the children participating were observed and recorded by camera during the Luftikus stage play and the results were shown in a DVD, which is available on request see details on the website.
During the two months subsequent to the show, the kindergarten teachers provided reports about the experiments being conducted by the children, and both the children and teachers are interviewed by a PhD student in educational science. The resulting reports are available at the website, and examples and results of the hands-on experiments that follow or have been developed from those demonstrated during the stage play are detailed on the website. The screenplay together with a list of experiments from the science show including appropriate safety guidelines is available on request.
A necessary prerequisite is that there exists a suitable link or connection with an appropriate university department together with appropriate experts in the relevant fields of science and education. In many countries there exist associations that perform science shows for schools. The experts should also offer further training to teachers, who often feel apprehensive with regard to scientific subjects. These fears could be addressed in this training and replaced by the joy of experimentation. The teachers could then conduct the experiments independently, based on an Experimental Handbook provided by the experts.
Christian Cura - Email: ccura t-online. Activities with these tools can be carried out individually or in group work at school and at home. Application of these tools in Maths classes starts during the first year of secondary school and may continue until the school leaving examination. For example: In grade 5 when students are years old , Roman numbers can be explained by using matches or tree diagrams can be visualized by using building blocks. The tools can still be applied for later grades. For instance, matches can be used to explain vectors, for 2D and 3D figures in geometry, and also for stochastics.
Building blocks may serve to visualize terms, but also for visualizing tasks in combinatorics. The tools offer a wide range of applications. Their continuous use over all grades generates recognition of their value and permits a high degree of coherence with respect to the programme contents. At the moment, seven classes from grades 5 to 9 are engaged in this project and each class has performed learning activities using Lego and matches on about ten separate occasions during the school year. Furthermore, the range of application of these tools is continuously increasing, as the initiative stimulates new ideas.
Teacher and students use simple and familiar tools to visualize abstract problems. Examples include: Three matches create a triangle. If one adds two further matches, one gets a second triangle and so on. Students can derive a mathematical term or equation which describes this special sequence chain built from matches. Students can explore mathematical issues in a self-directed way either individually or in group work. According to experience, the visualization of a mathematical problem by matches or blocks is stimulating to the majority of students, leading to lively class room discussions.
Also students with allegedly less ability can more easily overcome their mathematical inhibition and contribute with good ideas to the resolution of math related problems. The initiative is self-supported and has a local impact and dimension. While a number of projects concerning the use of matches or blocks in Maths lessons were previously tried out on a limited basis, since these tools have been used more systematically and more frequently and in a far wider range of applications.
Even so, the initiative continues to grow in relation to the number of classes involved, the variety of applications and the increased integration of multimedia tools for the enrichment of learning scenarios and documentation. The main benefit of this documentation work is that the ideas can easily be accessed by other teachers who would like to make use of them. At home, they create terms and take photos of their work.
Some of these photos have been used for the PowerPoint presentation to document the initiative. The tools matches, building blocks are simple and easy to obtain. The conduction of the initiative requires teachers with a high level of expertise in their subject. They should be motivated to translate pure, abstract mathematical thinking into concrete tasks and familiar or playful contexts. They should allow their students to explore mathematical issues in an open, self-directed way and support their individual learning processes.
This initiative promotes innovation in science teaching and learning through the study of the Laws of Physics applicable to karate techniques. The school gymnasium has thus become a working Physics Laboratory, where students carry out experiments with quantitative measures, using both simple equipment balances, dynamometers, tapes measure, etc. Gianino and is currently carried out in cooperation with the Dojo Karate-do Shotokan karate club of Scicli Province of Ragusa, Sicily and in particular with the cooperation and involvement of the Karate Instructor A.
At the end of the school year a public event with a practical demonstration is organised for parents and other students. The workshops include Physics lessons, Karate activities as well as experimental measurements to support the theory. These workshops give both students and teachers an overview of the main content of the project. Analysis also includes experimental graphs of motion diagrams realised in the laboratory. Theoretical lessons alternate between practical activities in the gymnasium on Karate techniques and laboratory activities for the analysis and measurement of the relevant physics and kinesics laws and the actual discernable phenomena that these laws imply.
The students spoke with the Monks and with Shihan Miura and had the occasion to ask questions about monastery lifestyle, Kung Fu techniques and the philosophy and history of karate. The teacher periodically organises an internal evaluation of the project through anonymous assessment questionnaires which are filled in by the students.
The list of topics included in the school activities is published and available at the website. The website documents the events organised during two years of activity and numerous pictures of students at work, can be viewed as a Slideshow or using Piclens. They have been really active in the project activities, as the accompanying pictures show. Most of the costs refer to the equipment needed to carry out the measurements and observations. What is most important is effective cooperation with the associated sport club and suitable support and backup from the school itself.
Six persons from the school have been involved in this particular initiative: apart from the two teachers those of Physics and Karate , a tutor Prof. Carbone , a school laboratory assistant Mr. Budello and a gymnasium caretaker Mr. Cottone , was also involved in the initiative. The success of the initiative among students shows that the idea to study physics laws related to a sport activity is extremely appealing to students and it is readily applicable to other sports, i. The Special Language of Research is a project whose aim is that of improving the relationship between science and society by activating a new channel of communication between the school system and that of scientific research carried out by the Bologna Research Area - CNR National Centre of Research and INAF National Astrophysics Institute.
With this purpose it addresses students of higher secondary schools of all kinds, particularly those who are about to make crucial decisions about their future, including choices regarding uptake of university studies or entry into the work environment and aims to stimulate their interest in the popularisation of current scientific research activities amongst a non expert public society in general.
The original idea was proposed and developed by Carla Ferreri and the project involves all the institutes of the Bologna Research Area, many higher secondary schools from to date, 17 schools in total and a group of scientific popularisers and journalists who this year are members of the International Rotary Club - Felsineo Group. The project foresees two phases. In phase 1 researchers meet the students in a cycle of presentations and guided visits to the laboratories of the CNR and it also includes exercises on subjects agreed beforehand with the teachers considered capable of providing suitable enrichment of the school curriculum.
Phase 2 comprises lectures by journalists and popularisers with regard to how science can be communicated, and includes presentations, articles or other multimedia products video, website, PPT presentations etc. At the end of the project, a workshop is organised that involves students, teachers, school directors and other regional contributors to the project. During the workshop there is an exhibition of all works received and prizes are awarded to the best works. A very important element of the project is its bilingual character use of Italian and English both during the lecture presentations by the researchers and in the materials produced by students.
English accompanies the Italian mother tongue because it is the main language for the communication of scientific news and because the technical-scientific knowledge generated is relevant to a generation of European citizens who have high levels of mobility within a Pan-European work environment. A wide range of presentations are made available to interested schools, from which they can choose those they consider most suitable or relevant to their particular school curriculum.
The presentations and guided visits available to date, include up-to-date topics like: food and the damage caused by free radicals, air quality, climate change, the global challenge on energy conservation, radioactive pollution, new methods to fight malaria, the connections between art and science, new novel materials and their production, nanotecnologies, microelectronics and the most up to date topics in the area of astrophysics research.
The lectures which focus on science communication techniques deal with the art of science popularisation and the experiences of professional journalists. Particular attention is paid to the use of vocabulary and terminology in both English and Italian. The presentations and guided visits are proposed in an interesting way to catch the attention of the students. The work with students focuses not only on scientific content but also on aspects of communication with the aim of enabling students to initiate direct and appropriate communication with a non specialised public.
This should occur in both an original and creative way, which at the same time is also accurate and complete from a scientific point of view. Quindi, dopo ulgatori su come lezioni di giornalis ti e div cimentano nella si racconta la scienza, si altri elaborati produzione di articoli o ione scientifica , multimediali di divulgaz e.
The programme is completely free for those schools involved. It also provides access to the products developed by prize-winning students from over the past three years together with photos from final conferences, etc. There is also a special section where all presentations given by researchers about various topics are made available. The materials developed include videos, PPT presentations, articles, cartoons, and are all available on this website.
It is more suitable for secondary schools because it asks students to tackle complex topics and languages, but it is transversal to many scientific topics. In a reduced version, it could be realised by schools in relation to specific topics with the appropriate collaboration of a research institute and local newspaper. On the blog are published daily posts from the teacher, including materials developed by the students as part of their normal class activities, i. This content type is complemented with other contents linked to the world of research and science in general, such as the results of international research, awards, news from research institutes and laboratories around the world, as well as advice, suggestions, proposed learning units and resources for other teachers and colleagues in Italy.
World History (ages ext. ) - Heart of Dakota Christian Homeschool Curriculum Blog
In this way the blog Scientificando has become a fertile and productive interface between the worlds of school and research. The network of users includes both the class students of the teacher in charge as well as pupils and colleagues from other schools throughout Italy.
The blog also includes sections from which various didactic materials can be downloaded learning units, experimental protocols, tests, videos, podcasts, didactic comics, PPT presentations , together with various learning objects, software, tools and games suitable for science education. Other sections of the blog are dedicated to the websites and blogs of other teachers and colleagues, and include announcements and general news items. Some of these materials are shared and linked with other blogs managed by the same teacher.
The students work in groups at school as well as at home to carry out research and studies. Students work on scientific reports relating to laboratory experiments they have planned together, develop conceptual maps on their own or in groups to conceptualize the contents taught in class, which they afterwards discuss together.
They also make posters and little booklets on topics of specific importance or interest. The impact of this initiative is at national level, as through the Internet the blog is addressing beneficiaries all over Italy. The blog is well-known and has great number of visitors: the average daily number of visitors accessing the blog is around - 1. The initiative involves the constant update of the blog which completes, enriches and documents the science education activities carried out in class by the teacher in charge.
The blog acts as a form of repository for the activities carried out in class. These are documented in a multimedia format and enriched with comments, resources and suggestions from the teacher and the other users of the blog, including teachers and colleagues from the same school or other schools in Italy, as well as parents, friends and the students themselves. The documentation of the activities and the activities themselves are enriched through the blog and both complement each other.
In some cases the posts are addressing the students and offer materials so that specific topics discussed in class can be studied in greater depth. Contents also highlight news and events at both national and international level, for example: Rita Levi Montalcini. Multimedia products developed by the students as homework or research are often published on the blog.
What is Kobo Super Points?
For example the post in which the teacher publishes the first PPT presentation of three students from the Lower Secondary school, relating to their research about vertebrate animals. The students have also prepared a study about goldfish, which includes some drawings done at school. Other materials have been elaborated by the students and published on the blog: e. This study was completed by a group of students as a homework assignment during their summer holidays. It is easy to imagine a blog focusing on a specific subject or addressing students of higher secondary school.
For this purpose, it is suggested to respond to all comments promptly and without delay, try to foster interaction through accurate questions and to regularly visit, comment on and refer to other blogs of scientific interest or that deal with similar subjects. It is important to try to make the blog a point of reference for students and other interested readers, thereby creating an exemplary and up to date pool of knowledge that can be constantly accessed by an active community and that continuously contributes to the widespread distribution of knowledge.
The aim is to bring pupils closer to the construction of an image of mathematics as a discipline of research and discovery, that is integral to life and applicable to the cultural requirements of human beings, in contrast to the widely spread image of maths in society as a discipline to be learnt by heart. Two didactic strategies characterise this project: 1. The activities carried out include: discussions in class, research and practical experimental activities in little collaborative groups, internet and library searches, interviews, meetings and written exercises including self-evaluation activities.
The process also involves in various ways other persons parents, other competent adults, pupils from higher level classes and has led to the discovery of different methods to count and represent the numbers that were used by ancient peoples. Within the activity the class has been split into three groups, each of them carrying out research on a particular counting system used by different ancient peoples Paleolith, Maya and Sumerian. Considerable time is dedicated to the construction of specific objects and tools which have been used for counting purposes amongst ancient peoples and which are the subject of each study group.
At the end of the year an exhibition is prepared to share the project contents and results with parents, other teachers and colleagues. The methodology adopted is that of research within a collaborative group, which foresees the division of the class in to smaller study groups which work together in order to fulfil a task and to maintain a role with the overall aim to improve learning. In this experience each member of the group has a role to perform that includes defined tasks and specific activities to be carried out together with other members of the group in order to complete the objective established by the teacher.
The roles have been defined following discussion with pupils and include: the manager, the secretary, the controller of serenity, the communicator, the observer names of the roles defined by the pupils themselves.

Depending on the work to be carried out, the basis of group organisation is either one of collaboration where different persons within the group carry out the same or similar activity and everyone is engaged in the same common work so that the group collectively reaches its objective or one of differentiation where different persons operate doing different activities, articulated and managed by the group itself and always with a common aim. The practical experimental sessions carried out in the laboratory are very important elements of the group work.
Periodically the groups gather in plenary meetings in order that each group member can present their own work to their fellow group members. The first external scientific reference to the project has been that from the R. The production of multimedia tools has also involved a number of teachers from other schools primary and secondary ones in the Veneto region. For the future there is the idea to use the blog as a diary for the collaborative groups.
The blog could facilitate the gathering and presentation of information and results, while at the same time also offering a place in which the data can be easily discussed by all.
The multimedia documentation is thought to be of help for reflecting on the process, to plan and improve the application of the methodology in the class and amongst colleagues. It is important to rely on a close and collaborative group of colleagues. On the wiki of the project are many materials in Italian to better understand how this initiative has been realised, see: Training, Activities, Cooperation. The objective of the Fifth Element project is that of promoting the sciences among the pupils of the 1st Cycle of Basic Education Primary Level , essentially those in the 3rd and 4th years of school i.
The main goal is to give pupils the opportunity to learn through doing by experimentation. The aim is for the pupils to experiment, reflect and ask questions, thereby being better motivated to study science subjects.
As children in the age group years old learn by doing and learn by thinking about what to do, this project seeks to provide the participants with the opportunity to learn through action and reflection on that action, in order to promote self-discovery, particularly in the area of science, which is the principle subject matter of the project. The teachers who oriented and designed the project went to the participating schools where they conducted experiments with the pupils in the field of natural science, contextualising them through a story-line which is subsequently included on the project website.
Periodically, simple exploratory activities are proposed and all such proposals are intended to be coherent with the context of the story-line developed in the first phase of the project. In order to provide a concrete and sound informational base from which the pupils can approach their experimental studies, they have complete access to the story-line script and protocols detailing the experiments they have to do.
When the experimental project work is complete they then return the results to the coordinators. The results are required, as with the original experiment, to be coherent with the context of the proposed story which has been designed in a manner that allows the experimental activity be an adventure in learning for the pupils. The pupils must furnish the results of the experiments they complete by e-mail and are guaranteed to receive prompt feedback to their outputs. This gives this project an extremely positive pedagogical characteristic, through the provision of on-going feedback and constant accompaniment for the pupils.
Over the course of this phase, all the pupils will be awarded marks for the answers they return in order that the finalists can be determined. The scoring is done in accordance with the official regulations of the competition. At the end of the process, the pupils with the most points will participate in the Grand Project Final.
The experiments and research questions are published on the website according to a schedule provided on the website itself. This schedule also indicates the period of time the pupils have to complete the challenge. The subjects of the activities undertaken are designed to be coherent with the scope of the National Curriculum of the 1st Cycle of Basic Education.
The topics covered are many and include the following areas: 1. The Properties of Air 2. Buoyancy in Liquids 3. Solubility in Liquid 4. The Properties of Light 5. Electricity 6. The Properties of Sound The activities are made available to the pupils on the website and are always contextualised according to the story-line initially presented at the start of the project. The pupils have access to the relevant protocol for carrying out the experiment they have been assigned. Once completed, they send the results obtained to the monitors of the project.
The protocols for the experiments are prepared in advance by the project monitors. At this visit, the coordinators also provide the pupils with the context of a small story, which the pupils will have to complete through study and experimentation. Currently, six schools, comprising a total of pupils, have participated in the project.
These publications are made periodically according to the schedule given on the website - normally every two weeks. The pupils must furnish the results of the experiments they conducted by e-mail within the defined completion time as listed on the schedule. The coordinators award points to the answers received, in order to determine who will participate at the Grand Final.
It presents the entire theoretical framework of the project, the regulations, schedule, photo gallery, lists of participating schools and relevant contacts. A PowerPoint presentation created by the coordinators is used to introduce the story-line to the classes. In this way, the website is a means of continuous communication between the teachers in charge and the participating schools. The challenge placed in the form of a story-line leads to greater enthusiasm and involvement from the pupils in their activities, whilst at the same time promoting an appreciation of and a taste for science.
The resolution of the experiments must be done with the support of the teachers of the participating schools, which requires considerable involvement and commitment from persons within the teaching community. The pupils are not only learning, but are also constructing a story, which ensures their greater involvement in the on-going activity. The results of the various experiments carried out always become part of the story and introduce the pupils to further novel challenges. It is necessary to have sufficient ICT knowledge and skills to create a website, and keep it both maintained and up to date.
The primary objectives of this project are to promote interest in the sciences and in the interpretation of everyday phenomena. These practical activities are filmed and placed on the project blog. The club is also responsible for the implementation of information campaigns about science in general.
The team is made up of a monitor and a teacher, together with 12 students selected from both Lower and Higher secondary level schools. Club activities are extracurricular in nature, taking place outside of normal school hours and are therefore non-obligatory. All activities undertaken are related to the school curriculum. The Club has a number of open places at the beginning of each school year.
These are filled through the selection and enrolment of those students expressing a suitable degree of interest in joining. In the event a student member drops out or is excluded due to absence or unavailability, students on the waiting list are contacted so they can join the club. During the various activities held in the school during the year - Club Week, Science Week, Halloween Party - as well as those conducted outside the school environment, e. During the school year, the Club also holds various presentations at the school for the other non-member students.
The tutorial, created by the teacher, shows the steps to be followed when carrying out the practical activity. The students conduct the experiment on their own, according to the instructions and information provided in the tutorial. Whenever the experiments involve elements that may be dangerous or have a certain degree of safety risk, the experiment is conducted with help of the teacher and all relevant safety procedures glasses, protective gown and gloves, etc.
The results are discussed by the whole group in order to find a reason for or reach the correct explanation or conclusion. The practical activities are recorded and later published as part of the project blog, together with relevant support documentation, such as tutorials. The group dynamics that exist allow the exchange and sharing of ideas, thus facilitating the group members to together build up a logical explanation for the observed outcomes of the experimental activities undertaken.
The blog lists the experiments conducted, and provides a chat box section, where students can converse with each other online. Other attributes of the blog include a complete listing of the young scientists participating, links to the different school websites, links to third parties and visitors that are involved or have access to the blog and a search box function within the blog itself.
In addition to the relevant video, the posts also include the tutorial material relevant to each experiment carried out. This tutorial is prepared by the teacher and the students are also given the opportunity to include suggestions for follow on experiments they would like to undertake in the future. Students participate actively in the documentation process, starting from the point where experimental activities are initiated up to the point where these activities are published on the blog. The teacher is always responsible for monitoring this work. While some of the students actually carry out the experimental activity following the steps detailed in the supplied tutorial, others are responsible for recording and filming the experiment.
Normally, the teacher puts the posts on the blog, but sometimes they may be placed on the blog by the students themselves. This book was also selected because of the ease of reading of each lesson as well as the adequate explanations and sample problems. The various pieces of furniture in a given room form a set.
