Retired Maine Game Warden John Ford has seen it all. He's been shot at by desperate prison escapees, been outwitted by wily trappers, and rescued scores of animals. As a tenacious and successful warden, he was always willing to spend the time needed to nab violators of the state's fish and game laws. At the same time, though, he wasn't a cold, heartless, go-by-the-book enforcer; he usually had a good quip ready when he slipped the handcuffs on a violator, and he wasn't above accepting a lesson learned as sufficient penalty for breaking the law. Ford is also a very gifted storyteller and he writes of his adventures in Suddenly, the Cider Didn't Taste So Good, a collection of true tales, both humorous and serious, from the trenches of law enforcement, and also includes heartwarming accounts of his rescue of hurt or abandoned animals. 1.

Student teaching can be an endeavor fraught with anxiety. Those entering the classroom for the first time face the daunting challenge of translating coursework on the theory of teaching into real-world experience. Common questions for anxious student teachers include: Will I be a good teacher? Will I ever get control of my classroom? How can I do all of this grading and plan for next week at the same time? This helpful guide by teacher educator Rosalyn McKeown offers practical suggestions for student teachers, interns, and teacher candidates just starting out in a secondary school classroom. This easy-to-read text enables new educators to rapidly advance their teaching skills early in their pre-service experiences. After exploring the pitfalls of inexperience and providing helpful guidance on maintaining order in the classroom, McKeown focuses on teaching skills. She advises readers on writing objectives and lesson plans, creating interesting ways to start and end class, introducing variety into the classroom, lecturing, asking meaningful questions, and using visual aids. Among the other topics discussed are setting up a classroom, recognizing differences in learning styles, and developing an individual teaching style. Sidebars scattered throughout the text offer useful advice on everything from how to deal with stage fright and distracting noises from outside, to planning for block scheduling and avoiding the attributes of a boring teacher. With McKeown's own list of expectations for her classes, templates for hall passes and lesson plans, and scores of tips garnered from years of experience, Into the Classroom provides information a first-time teacher needs to enter the secondary classroom with confidence. 1.

Lady Dame Honor Harrington - starship captain, admiral, Steadholder, and Duchess - has spent decades defending the Star Kingdom of Manticore against all comers. Along the way, she has become the legend known as "the Salamander" from her habit of always being where the fire is hottest... and also from being a national best seller (Ashes of Victory). But it's a big universe, and Honor's actions affect a lot of lives, not all of them human. And their actions affect her - a lesson "Ms. Midshipwoman Harrington" learns years before rising to command rank, when a desperate battle against "pirates" who aren't quite what they seem begins her brilliant career. Closer to home, in "Changer of Worlds" a secret that the alien treecats have kept from their human friends for hundreds of years is about to come out... and completely change the relationship between the two species forever. Meanwhile, Eric Flint weighs in with "From the Highlands". Honor can't be everywhere, so when the People's Republic of Haven tries to stage a political assassination on Earth, Anton Zilwicki - husband of one of the Star Kingdom's most revered military martyrs, and father of a young woman who is clearly a chip off the old block - steps into the breach... and takes the opportunity to settle some old scores along the way. And finally, Esther McQueen and Oscar Saint-Just square off for their final confrontation in Noveau Paris in "Nightfall". 1. Language: English.

Is your soccer team getting a lot of chances but unable to score? Or you are personally unable to score goals as a striker? Take your soccer shooting skills to the next level with our audiobook.If you do not shoot, you cannot score. That lesson must be instilled into players right from the first time they kick a ball. Of course, we want every player to develop game awareness, to know when a pass is the best option, but if players become concerned about criticism if they shoot and miss, then they will be in a team that never scores. And therefore, on a team that never wins.The pleasure of striking the ball cleanly, and sending it flying into the back of the net is impossible to put into words. Just look at professionals when they succeed in their aim (and with their aim, of course). The spectacular scissors kick, overhead effort, or perfect chip sends the player, their team, and any crowd into a state of euphoria.Equally important, and often just as satisfying, is the neat and simple finish; the awareness of being in the right place, the speed of reaction when the ball breaks, the calmness under pressure to slide the ball home.Go to almost any general compilation of clips Online and the overwhelming majority will be shots - usually ones that lead to a goal. This book will provide a series of drills which will help coaches and players to become star shooters, leading to more goals, more wins and even greater joy at playing this most beautiful of games.Here's what's included in this audiobook: Tips and drills to improve freekicksTips and drills to improve corner kicksTips and drills to improve penalty kicksTips and drills to improve shooting powerTips and drills to improve shooting accuracyTips and drills to shoot the moving ballConclusionBuy this audiobook today! 1.
