The Struggles of Identity, Education, and Agency in the Lives of Undocumented Students: The Burden of Hyperdocumentation by Aurora Chang

English | 15 Nov. 2017 | ISBN: 3319646133 | 156 Pages | PDF | 1.18 MB

This book weaves together two distinct and powerfully related sources of knowledge: the author’s journey and transition from a once undocumented immigrant from Guatemala to a hyperdocumented academic, and five years of on-going national research on the identity, education, and agency of undocumented college students. In interlacing both personal experiences with findings from her empirical qualitative research, Chang explores practical and theoretical pedagogical, curricular, and policy-related discussions around issues that impact undocumented immigrants while provide compelling rich narrative vignettes. Collectively, these findings support the argument that undocumented students can cultivate an empowering self-identity by performing the role of infallible cultural citizen.

Around the Writer’s Block: Using Brain Science to Solve Writer’s Resistance by Rosanne Bane

English | August 2, 2012 | ISBN: 158542871X | EPUB | 320 pages | 1.3 MB

Discover the tricks that your brain uses to keep you from writing—and how to beat them.
Do you:
Want to write, but find it impossible to get started?
Keep your schedules so full that you don’t have any time to write?
Wait until the last minute to write, even though you know you could do a better job if you gave yourself more time?
Suddenly remember ten other things that you need to do whenever you sit down to write?
Sabotage your own best efforts with lost files, missed deadlines, or excessive self-criticism?
The good news is that you’re not lazy, undisciplined, or lacking in willpower, talent or ambition. You just need to learn what’s going on inside your brain, and harness the power of brain science to beat resistance and develop a productive writing habit.
In Around the Writer’s Block, Rosanne Bane– a creativity coach and writing teacher for more than 20 years– uses the most recent breakthroughs in brain science to help us understand, in simple, clear language, where writing resistance comes from: a fight-or-flight response hard-wired into our brain, which can make us desperate to flee the sources of our anxieties by any means possible.
Bane’s three-part plan, which has improved the productivity of thousands of writers, helps you develop new reliable writing habits, rewire the brain’s responses to the anxiety of writing, and turn writing from a source of stress and anxiety into one of joy and personal growth.

Dangerous Liaisons: How to Identify and Escape from Psychopathic Seduction by Claudia Moscovici

English | September 20, 2011 | ISBN: 0761855696 | EPUB | 230 pages | 0.5 MB

What do Scott Peterson, Neil Entwistle and timeless literary seducers epitomized by Don Juan and Casanova have in common? They are charismatic, glib and seductive men who also embody the most dangerous human qualities: a breathtaking callousness, shallowness of emotion and the incapacity to love. In other words, these men are psychopaths. Unfortunately, most psychopaths don’t advertise themselves as heartless social predators. They come across as charming, intelligent, romantic and kind. Through their believable “mask of sanity,” they lure many of us into their dangerous nets.
Dangerous Liaisons explains clearly what psychopaths are, why they act the way they do, how they attract us and whom they tend to target. Above all, this book helps victims find the strength to end their toxic relationships with psychopaths and move on, stronger and wiser, with the rest of their lives.
