Each chapter focuses on a specific content area outlining learning goals relevant national standards types of representation that enrich learning and teaching strategies for developing critical literacy specific to that discipline. Reading and Representing Across the Content Areas is a powerful application of creative multimodal teaching principles for meeting challenging standards.
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Buddhism in Asia was transformed by the impact of colonial modernity and new technologies and began to spread in earnest to the West. Transnational networking among Asian Buddhists and early western converts engendered pioneering attempts to develop new kinds of Buddhism for a globalized world, in ways not controlled by any single sect or region. Drawing on new research by scholars worldwide, this book brings together some of the most extraordinary episodes and personalities of a period of almost a century from 1860-1960. Examples include Indian intellectuals who saw Buddhism as a homegrown path for a modern post-colonial future, poor whites 'going native' as Asian monks, a Brooklyn-born monk who sought to convert Mussolini, and the failed 1950s attempt to train British monks to establish a Thai sangha in Britain. Some of these stories represent creative failures, paths not taken, which may show us alternative possibilities for a more diverse Buddhism in a world dominated by religious nationalisms. Other pioneers paved the way for the mainstreaming of new forms of Buddhism in later decades, in time for the post-1960s takeoff of 'global Buddhism'.

ABOUT THE BOOK Since its first publication in 1991, Geoffrey Moores Crossing the Chasm: Marketing and Selling High Tech Products to Mainstream Customers has set the standard for tech business moguls. In fact, it has become the standard for all of us trying to make our way in the confusing world of technology business. Moore argues that there is a chasm that exists between early adopters of a potentially disruptive technology product and what he calls the early majority, or the market segment that takes such a product to the upper ranges of success. Moore believes that early adopters and visionaries have very different expectations than the pragmatists that follow. In this book, he explores those differences and suggests specific techniques to successfully cross the "chasm." These include choosing a target market, understanding the whole product concept, positioning the product, building a successful marketing strategy, and choosing the most appropriate distribution channel and pricing.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Moores major thesis is that there is something wrong with the High Tech Marketing Model. There are gaps separating the major groups described in the Technology Adoption Life Cycle. These gaps represent the fact that any group will have a hard time accepting a new product if it is marketed to them in the same manner it was marketed to the group that preceded them. Each of these gaps is an opportunity for marketing to lose momentum and miss the transition to the next group. Two of these gaps are relatively small, what Moore calls cracks in the bell curve. The gap between innovators and early adopters occurs when a hot new technology product cannot be transitioned into a major new benefit. The enthusiast loves it for its architecture, but nobody can even figure out how to start using it. There is a second crack of similar size that exists between the early majority and the late majority. It comes at a time in the product life cycle when the market is well developed and the technology product is in the mainstream. While the early majority was quite willing and able to achieve the level of technical competence required to gain benefit from the product, the late majority user is much less so. In order to continue developing their market by moving into the late majority segment, the product marketers must make the product easier to use and implement. If they fail to do so, they may fail in their attempts to transition to this next segment. CHAPTER OUTLINE Quicklet on Geoffrey A.
