Miller, Chris; Self, Nate; Garven, Sena; Allen, Nate – Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks, 2011
Given the complex environment in which the U.S. military operates, leaders at all levels must be prepared for a force that is more responsive to regional combatant commanders needs, better employs joint capabilities, facilitates force packaging and rapid deployment, and fights self contained units in non-linear, non-contiguous battle space. This…

Walker, Crayton – English for Specific Purposes, 2011
In this paper I use two case studies to show how corpus linguistics can be used to help in the teaching of business English. Senior managers in global companies often find themselves having to do their job in a foreign language. Given that language is one of the key tools of management, the senior managers are normally very keen to develop a…

Labi, Aisha – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2012
When the global financial crisis hit in 2008, it looked at first as if many European universities were going to escape the worst.

Katzman, John – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2012
It's no surprise that, 28 years after the publication of "A Nation at Risk," school-reform efforts have generated so little effect.

No Child Left Behind helped…

Clarkson, Philip C. – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2008
Doing mathematics, and thinking about how you are doing it at the same time, are not the easiest things to do. It is even more difficult if students are not aware that they should be attempting both processes at the same time. They are likely to concentrate on the immediate task of "doing" the mathematics, rather than trying to access the deeper…

Zheng, Zane Z.; Munhall, Kevin G.; Johnsrude, Ingrid S. – Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, 2010
The fluency and the reliability of speech production suggest a mechanism that links motor commands and sensory feedback. Here, we examined the neural organization supporting such links by using fMRI to identify regions in which activity during speech production is modulated according to whether auditory feedback matches the predicted outcome or…
