Adler and Van Doren’s “The Activity and Art of Reading”

Adler and Van Doren’s “The Activity and Art of Reading” Learning Adler and Van Doren assert that students “must do the learning” in the process of education. The idea propounded by the duo is true in the process of gaining knowledge. Teachers’ critical role is to facilitate the learning process by guiding students. The teacher delivers the content while carefully guiding the learner. However, it is the sole responsibility of the student to do the learning, or as the duo asserts, “knowledge must grow” in the mind of the student. The teacher may deliver the content well in class. Nonetheless, if students fail to do the learning, set goals of education will not be realized. The students may be taught different things. However, students must show the initiative to learn or gain knowledge. Once students are taught in class be teachers, it is their initiative to understand or apply the concepts taught in real life situations. Students should take time to reflect...

Environmental Resources Worksheet

Environmental Resources Worksheet

Environmental Resources Worksheet Minerals Metallic minerals are those which give new products on melting, for example iron and manganese while non-metallic minerals such as coal and salt do not give new products on melting. Iron is extracted from ores and used in the construction industry and making of tools. Manganese is used in making steel. Coal is used as a source of energy while salt is used to season and preserve food. Mining Minerals may be extracted through open pit mining or through shaft mine for minerals that occur on the earth’s surface and those that are found under the earth’s surface respectively. After extraction, crude ores are crushed in order to separate waste rock and valuable components. The crushed mixture is concentrated to separate minerals from other waste substances. Minerals can be mined through surface mining, underground mining and in-situ leaching. Surface mining techniques such as open-pit mining involves removal of vegetation and other materials that lie above mineral deposits.  Underground mining techniques such...

Balancing Ecosystems

Balancing Ecosystems

Balancing Ecosystems This letter highlights the dangers associated with invasive species to Sparksville's and Glimmerville’s aquatic ecosystem balance. An ecosystem balance is defined as a state of equilibrium that exists in a certain community of living things in which the species, genetics and the ecosystem diversity remain unchanged over time (Marcia, 2011). From Episode 1, a number of reduction factors and growth factors which impacted the ecosystem are evident. The reduction factors are mainly climate change and natural calamities. Climate change has put a threat to the survival of many species around the world. Notable natural calamities include floods and volcanic eruptions. Growth factors identified in the Episode include sunlight, soil nutrients, precipitation, and soil configuration. Invasive species may negatively affect the ecosystem in a variety of ways. Since they reproduce rapidly, invasive species have in some areas replaced or reduced the native species to worrying levels. Secondly, invasive species can change the ecosystem processes such as predator-prey dynamics. In case native...
