Intelligibility, Oral Communication, And The Teaching Of Pronunciation, John M. Levis Sep 2018

Intelligibility, Oral Communication, And The Teaching Of Pronunciation, John M. Levis

English Books

A proper understanding of intelligibility is at the heart of effective pronunciation teaching, and with it, successful teaching of speaking and listening. Far from being an optional 'add-it-on-if-we-have-time' language feature, pronunciation is essential because of its tremendous impact on speech intelligibility. Pronunciation dramatically affects the ability of language learners to make themselves understood and to understand the speech of others. But not all elements of pronunciation are equally important. Some affect intelligibility a great deal, while others do not. With a strong emphasis on classroom practice and how pronunciation teaching can be more effectively approached in different teaching contexts, this ...

Social Decentering: A Theory Of Other-Orientation Encompassing Empathy And Perspective-Taking, Mark V. Redmond May 2018

Social Decentering: A Theory Of Other-Orientation Encompassing Empathy And Perspective-Taking, Mark V. Redmond

English Books

The following comments are intended to align your expectations as a reader with those of mine as the writer by primarily explaining what is not included in this book. If you have elected to read this book of your own accord (versus an assigned reading for a class), you might be expecting a thorough, detailed discussion of empathy and perspective-taking, but you will not find that. Many years ago, after considerable time reviewing the literature on empathy, perspective-taking, and role-taking, I wrote a convention paper where I detailed the confusion surrounding the meaning and measurement of those concepts. As a ...

Activist Agriculture: Farm Protest In Iowa, 1929-1969, Amy Bishop, Olivia Garrison, Kimberly D. Anderson

Special Collections Exhibit Catalogs

Throughout the twentieth century, farmers in Iowa and the Midwest struggled to make a living off their land and hard work. Post-war price busts and the Great Depression only exacerbated the general erosion in farm parity as increasing costs of production were not matched by an increase in farm commodity prices. In response, farmers organized in an effort to move from being victims of the economic and social situation to self-determined shapers of action. In this exhibit, we take a closer look at mobilization of farmers to confront and obstruct tuberculosis testing of cattle during the Iowa Cow Wars of ...

Qgis: Digitizing I - Creating New Shapefiles, Amy Logan, Bailey Hanson, Christopher J. Seeger

GIS and Mapping Task Sheets

A shapefile is a vector file format used in GIS mapping to represent real world objects by storing information about their location, shape, and attributes of geographic features on a map. There are three basic types of shapefiles: a point, a line, and a polygon. A point file is a single x,y coordinate that represents a geographic feature. Depending on the scale of the map points can represent a variety of objects including cities, wind turbines, or garbage cans. Lines represent features that have length and direction but no area that connect at least two x,y coordinates. Common ...


Qgis: Georeferencing A Historic Map, Amy Logan, Bailey Hanson, Christopher J. Seeger May 2017

Qgis: Georeferencing A Historic Map, Amy Logan, Bailey Hanson, Christopher J. Seeger

GIS and Mapping Task Sheets

Georeferencing is the process of assigning spatial coordinates to raster data that has no geographic coordinate system (GCS) embedded in the file. Raster datasets are often aerial photographs, satellite images, or scanned maps which represent geographic features by dividing an image into a grid. Each cell of the grid has a value that is used to represent a characteristic of the location. Normally a scanned map won’t have a spatial reference until it is georeferenced. This task sheet will guide you through georeferencing a historic map using the QGIS Georeferencing GDAL plugin.


Qgis: Projections & Enabling On The Fly Projection, Bailey Hanson, Christopher J. Seeger May 2017

Qgis: Projections & Enabling On The Fly Projection, Bailey Hanson, Christopher J. Seeger

GIS and Mapping Task Sheets

A projection is a way to translate the curved surface of the earth (3D) onto a flat map (2D). The challenge is that every map projection has distortion because the spherical nature of the globe cannot be perfectly represented in a two dimensional map. The picture below illustrates similarities and differences of three map projections. This image powerfully demonstrates the importance of defining the projection. For example, if you were working with data in Washington State you may have very different results working in Mercator or Lambert Conformal Conic. Knowing the projection of your data is important especially when working ...
