This collection of stories was written by Dakota Sioux author Zitkala-Sa, also known as Gertrude Bonnin. Helen Keller sent a testimonial letter to the author on August 25, 1919: "I thank you for your book on Indian legends. I have read them with exquisite pleasure.

Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The goal of this preparatory textbook is to give students a chance to familiarize with some terms and some basic concepts they will find in an Anatomy and Physiology course. Organization and functioning of the human organism are generally presented starting from the simplest building blocks, and then moving into levels of increasing complexity. This textbook follows the same presentation. It starts introducing the concept of homeostasis, then covers the chemical level, and later on a basic introduction to cellular level, organ level, and organ system levels. This second edition incorporates a module on protein synthesis, and a complementary base pairing learning objective as requested by many students. This edition also adds audio for all learning objectives. Audio Icon by Kieselli form Pixabay. The textbook is organized in five UNITS, divided into sixteen MODULES covering a total of fifty-two Learning Objectives. There is a short self-assessment at the end of each learning objective.

What opportunities do digital technologies present scholars? How do developments in digital media support scholarship and teaching, and how can academics apply them to further social justice activism? The authors, a sociologist and a librarian, examine scholarly practice in the digital era to explore how academics, journalists, and activists can combine efforts to support social justice issues. With scholarly communication undergoing rapid change, and with digital innovation applied in higher education for many reasons, authors outline what scholars can do to channel their work to benefit the public good.

From Fall 2017 to Fall 2018, artists, archivists, scholars, historians, oral historians, and researchers from across New York City met as The City Amplified working group. It was a space for us to share our professional practices, think about future collaborations, and celebrate each other's work. This publication comes out of those dialogues and addresses the way we think about oral histories, radical archives, and public engagement today. The project was generously supported by the Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research at the Center for Humanities at the Graduate Center, CUNY.

Clear-Sighted Statistics: An Introduction to Statistics Textbook
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The discipline of Statistics is in the midst of a paradigm shift. Clear-Sighted Statistics is an open access introductory textbook that addresses the shortcomings of current introductory textbooks. Clear-Sighted Statistics covers topics introductory textbooks ignore or mishandle, including: 1) How to conduct statistical analyses using Microsoft Excel as well as by hand. 2) How valid and reliable data are obtained. 3) The measurement of a standardized effect size. 4) The difference between practical and statistical significance. 5) What p-values actually tell us. 6) The importance of statistical power. 7) How to calculate statistical power and the probability of committing a Type II error. In addition, while the difference between correlation and causation has been a staple of Statistics books since the turn of the twentieth century, Clear-Sighted Statistics reviews how to establish causal relationships using random controlled tests and observational studies; these important topics are rarely, if ever, reviewed in introductory textbooks.
