In yoga teacher training you are taught how to teach the yoga poses but not necessarily much about the art of teaching. Or perhaps I should say the heart of teaching-how to show up as a human being with all of your gifts, passions, fears and insecurities and teach the best class you can. Whether a total newbie to teaching or a seasoned veteran, the 12 Principles for Teaching People, Not Poses are pillars to support you in being a truly remarkable yoga teacher. 1. Be yourself. 2. Practice. 3. Show your vulnerability and your expertise. 4. Teach from your own experience. 5. If you don't know, say you don't know. 6. Stay in your body. 7. Don't take it all so seriously. 8. Remember that your students are people. 9. Learn anatomy. 10. Plan enough so that you can be spontaneous. 11. Remember who and what supports you. 12. Don't try to please everyone. With a chapter dedicated to each principle, stories from Jay's fourteen years of experience as a yoga teacher, teaching tips and questions for you to reflect upon about your own experience as a teacher, this book helps you to find the truth of your own teaching. In turn, you become the most confident, real and inspiring yoga teacher you can be.

Do you ever wonder what more yoga has to offer than the physical poses? Meditations for Gym Yogis provides an easy way to begin your exploration of yoga philosophy. The book covers such yoga basics as ethical precepts, the eight limbs of yoga, chakras, terms and concepts you might hear in yoga class and an intro to the most popular Hindu gods. Author Teresa Bergen began studying yoga in 1992 and teaching in 2003. She specializes in teaching accessible, all-levels classes at neighborhood gyms in Portland, Oregon. Here's what some authors and yoga experts have to say about Meditations for Gym Yogis:“Teresa Bergen has written a straightforward guidebook for yoga skeptics. An expert on gym yogis and how their needs and interests differ from yogis who practice in a studio, she addresses the more esoteric and ethical underpinnings of yoga in a way that is down-to-earth and practical. Don't expect New Age-isms or proselytizing. Do expect a general overview of the foundations of yoga practice mixed in with just the right amount of quirky humor and personal experience.” – Jay Fields, yoga teacher and author of Teaching People, Not Poses “What impresses me most is Teresa's ability to explain yoga philosophy in a simple and meaningful way. With her wit and charm it's easy and enjoyable to read. The chapters are short and you can skip around or read it cover to cover. As you read the book you will not only deepen your understanding about yoga but also about yourself. This is the perfect book for anyone interested in yoga. Yoga teachers and passionate yogis can now easily share these beautiful teachings with their students and others. Newer practitioners wanting to learn more on their own will now have an easy resource to help them along the way." – Jenny Gallagher, yoga teacher and author of Yen Path

This book presents the latest research on understanding language teacher identity and development for both novice and experienced researchers and educators, and introduces non-experts in language teacher education to key topics in teacher identity research. It covers a wide range of backgrounds, themes, and subjects pertaining to language teacher identity and development. Some of these include the effects of apprenticeship in doctoral training on novice teacher identity; the impacts of mid-career redundancy on the professional identities of teachers; challenges faced by teachers in the construction of their professional identities; the emerging professional identity of pre-service teachers; teacher identity development of beginning teachers; the role of emotions in the professional identities of non-native English speaking teachers; the negotiation of professional identities by female academics. Advances and Current Trends in Language Teacher Identity Research will appeal to academics in ELT/TESOL/applied linguistics. It will also be useful to those who are non-experts in language teacher education, yet still need to know about theories and recent advances in the area due to varying reasons including their affiliation to a teacher training institute; needs to participate in projects on language teacher education; and teaching a course for pre-service and in-service language teachers.

The past fifteen years have seen renewed interest in the civil rights movement. Television documentaries, films and books have brought the struggles into our homes and classrooms once again. New evidence in older criminal cases demands that the judicial system reconsider the accuracy of investigations and legal decisions. Racial profiling, affirmative action, voting districting, and school voucher programs keep civil rights on the front burner in the political arena. In light of this, there are very few resources for teaching the civil rights at the university level. This timely and invaluable book fills this gap. This book offers perspectives on presenting the movement in different classroom contexts; strategies to make the movement come alive for students; and issues highlighting topics that students will find appealing. Including sample syllabi and detailed descriptions from courses that prove effective, this work will be useful for all instructors, both college and upper level high school, for courses in history, education, race, sociology, literature and political science.

Foreign language learning is a progressive endeavor. Whatever the method, the learner should advance from one point to another, constantly improving. Growing proficiency entails growing language content. Content is complex, displaying many dimensions. Syllabus designers, textbook authors, and teachers often struggle with the monitoring of content. Computer-assisted systemization helps to handle it in a manageable framework. Besides inventorying content, it ensures more balanced selections, calculated progression, and controlled reiteration of previously learned material. It gauges the usability of authentic material in relation to the level attained. During the teaching process, it allows the instant selection of items needed for a communicative situation, focus on forms, or particular exercises. This book first describes the theoretical background for systemization, including a historical overview, with special attention to the Common European Framework and the new Profiles and Referentials. Next the practical steps for computer-assisted implementation with examples taken from French and English, but applicable to any language.
