Nietzsche : a selected annotated bibliography
Nietzsche: A Selected Annotated Bibliography is a research guide compiled by Jack Sherefkin of the New York Public Library. While it is based on the library's own holdings, it is detailed enough to be valuable to all scholars with an interest in the controversial 19th-century German philosopher. It contains information about both editions of Nietzsche's own works (in German and in English) and works written about him and his thought. The latter are grouped by theme (for example, Nietzsche's Epis
Mabel Holmes' Diary, 1935-1939, part 2
Mabel Holmes, a longtime Topeka resident, kept a daily diary from January 1, 1935-December 31, 1939.

Evaluating an evidence-based approach to designing and implementing a teaching sequence about plant
Although there is now a significant database of research evidence about students’ learning of biological concepts, there is general scepticism as to whether this research has had any impact on the practice of teachers. A likely reason for the low impact of research is that little is known about what is involved for teachers in drawing upon research findings about learning to improve practice. In this paper we present findings from a study that is investigating the process of transforming resea
