Knowing students' learning interests and dispositions to engage in learning will help teachers plan, adapt, and provide scaffolding to help students develop their skills and knowledge. Students have a variety of learning interests, including interests in specific content areas, general interests, and academic and personal interests. An important element of making choices about learning are a student's learning dispositions or traits. These include the motivation to learn, the capacity to engage in learning, the desire to develop skills, and the capacity to self-monitor.
In order to develop the capacities to make choices for themselves, students need to become active participants in their own learning environments. Teachers play an important role in helping students design the environment they need to learn in, and to be active participants in their own learning. This process also provides opportunities for teachers to model the skill of designing learning environments to support learning, even if teachers have not developed these skills. This is especially important if a student does not feel that he or she has the capacity to become an active participant in the design of the learning environment.
^The author(s) of the book of Genesis adapted the creation myth found in the Mesopotamian and Egyptian creation stories, and in many ways filled in the details which could not be found in the ancient versions. For example, in the Mesopotamian and Egyptian stories the order of creation was: (1) sky, (2) earth, (3) mountains, (4) seas, (5) rivers, (6) plants, (7) animals, (8) man. Genesis, however, works backwards in the order of creation: water, then land, then plants, and so on.
While the Arma Mark 8 was installed on large warships, the Mark 7 was far more common, and at least one source (Hornung - ) mentions that many of the Mark 7s installed on small craft were later modified to the Mark 8 model.
The first part of the book covers every circuit stage in a tube amplifier from input to output (including effects, in much greater detail than available in other publications). It includes a thorough examination of the most important circuit aspects of each stage, including saturation, distortion, high-pass filtering, preamplification, gain staging, and speaker simulation. Throughout the book, the author uses his own test equipment and measurement methodologies to compare and contrast various amps and their characteristic behaviors. The book also includes a lot of new information, including an expanded discussion of valve types, the wider distribution of tube types, tube-simulating circuits, tube-optimizing circuits, and amplifier tubes. Readers will also learn how to quickly check tube-health conditions in their own gear using a simple test circuit. 827ec27edc
