Between 1893 and 1920 the U.S. government attempted to transform Kiowa children by immersing them in the forced assimilation program that lay at the heart of that era's Indian policy. Committed to civilizing Indians according to Anglo-American standards of conduct, the Indian Service effected the government's vision of a new Indian race that would be white in every way except skin color. Reservation boarding schools represented an especially important component in that assimilationist campaign. The Rainy Mountain School, on the Kiowa-Comanche-Apache Reservation in western Oklahoma, provides an example of how theory and reality collided in a remote corner of the American West. Rainy Mountain's history reveals much about the form and function of the Indian policy and its consequences for the Kiowa children who attended the school. In To Change Them Forever Clyde Ellis combines a survey of changing government policy with a discussion of response and accommodation by the Kiowa people. Unwilling to surrender their identity, Kiowas nonetheless accepted the adaptations required by the schools and survived the attempt to change them into something they did not wish to become. Rainy Mountain became a focal point for Kiowa society.

Tru Vu Change The Way You Look At Putting Forever

Golf is a tradition-bound sport that has forced golfers to not make the best use of their instinctive ability to aim the putterhead, as well as creating a visual disconnect that can seriously degrade distance control on putts over ten feet. Tru-Vu putting is based on the concept that the golfer should face the hole when putting, thus creating a simple, one-armed putting motion that is instinctive for both aim and distance control. The putter, nor the forearm, are braced against the body, which keeps it in line with the newest ruling by the USGA and R&A banning anchoring. Research into both visual and learning theory are used as background material to build the case that traditional putting styles are more difficult to master and seldom, if ever, create long-term putting success. The author explains the sequence of events that lead to the initial research into possible solutions to help his aging father cope with physical limitations, as well as his personal battle with multiple sclerosis for several years. His personal journey during the writing of the book is a vital part of the book as he describes the failures and success along the path to what has become a lifelong solution to his putting woes.

Coaching is an essential skill for leaders. But for most busy, overworked managers, coaching employees is done badly, or not at all. They're just too busy, and it's too hard to change. But what if managers could coach their people in 10 minutes or less? In Michael Bungay Stanier's The Coaching Habit, coaching becomes a regular, informal part of your day so managers and their teams can work less hard and have more impact. Coaching is an art and it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an answer, or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable. It can also mean unlearning our ''fix it'' habits. In this practical and inspiring book, Michael shares seven transformative questions that can make a difference in how we lead and support. And, he guides us through the tricky part - how to take this new information and turn it into habits and a daily practice. -Brené Brown, author of Rising Strong and Daring Greatly Drawing on years of experience training more than 10,000 busy managers from around the globe in practical, everyday coaching skills, Bungay Stanier reveals how to unlock your peoples' potential. He unpacks seven essential coaching questions to demonstrate how---by saying less and asking more--you can develop coaching methods that produce great results. - Get straight to the point in any conversation with The Kickstart Question - Stay on track during any interaction with The AWE Question - Save hours of time for yourself with The Lazy Question, and hours of time for others with The Strategic Question - Get to the heart of any interpersonal or external challenge with The Focus Question and The Foundation Question - Finally, ensure others find your coaching as beneficial as you do with The Learning Question A fresh, innovative take on the traditional how-to manual, the book combines insider information with research based in neuroscience and behavioural economics, together with interactive training tools to turn practical advice into practiced habits. Dynamic question-and-answer sections help identify old habits and kick-start new behaviour, making sure you get the most out of all seven chapters. Witty and conversational, The Coaching Habit takes your work--and your workplace--from good to great.

In 1989, while waiting for her children to emerge from their private high school in San Francisco, Linda Mornell observed a young man hanging back from the others. She knew he was a scholarship student and thought that surely he had it made: full tuition, competitive academic school, college prospects. But his body language was telling a different story. Instantly sympathetic, Linda knew her own children, coming from public school backgrounds, also had trouble adjusting. Embarking on summer programs, especially the challenging ones, had made all the difference. Although sometimes reluctant to go, they returned home more resilient, self-assured, and better prepared to face the challenges of the school year ahead. Linda was struck by an idea. Why couldn't low-income kids also have these experiences? Not only would it expand their world but it could help them develop an internal compass that could change them forever. Today, more than 25 years later, that idea and the organization she founded, Summer Search, has transformed the lives of thousands of adolescents from seven different cities. Forever Changed is the incredible true story of courageous students who took on life-changing summer experiences to discover who they really were and what they were capable of becoming. It details the challenges and triumphs of both the students and their mentors as they navigate and interrupt paths that, for many, seemed destined for failure. For families and educators interested in adolescent development, this book documents the remarkable transformation that "going for hard" can bring to all young people.
