    1. “The Last Rose of Summer”

      I looked up a recording of “The Last Rose of Summer”, and the rose in the lyrics/story of the song seem to fit Rosanna (who obviously has “rose” in her name)...the story is about the last rose of summer that has survived all the other roses that have died and faded. Ultimately though, the narrator decides to kill it because it seems so sad that the rose is the last one, saying in the last stanza that they would choose a quick death than to be like the friendless, lonely rose. Could this be parallel to Rosanna being the rose and somehow the narrator being Betteredge/Lady Verinder breaking her off into being with people she doesn’t fit in with as some twisted Christian act in the name of helping the poor?

    1. But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.

      This is more than just a travel log. Here Jonah is saying no to God. He is refusing God’s plan for him. He is actually rejecting a direct request from the creator because of his own interests. Maybe he is afraid to prophesy repentance because his life could be at risk. There may be smooth sailing at first, but the wrath of God eventually catches up with him.

    1. ive into equations: When plunging into a pool, have your child calculate the volume and weight of the water and the rate at which the pool will fill or drain. Be a meteorologist: Track summer weather and convert daily temperatures from Celsius to Fahrenheit and monitor monthly rainfall. Show the relevance: Invite your child to help you prepare poolside treats. Encourage them to use measuring cups and proportion snacks into different size bowls. Connect Math & Language: If your child excells at language, then use that subject as a platform to help them excel in math. Give them picture books and nonfiction texts to read that focus on math. Turn errands into learning opportunities: While at the grocery store, have your child figure out which box of crackers is closest to the $2.50 price point and count the kiwis as they put them in the bag. Add some education to your road trips: Distract your child from asking “Are we there yet?!” by creating paper tickets that identify all the rest stops along the way, so they can practice time and distance on the ride there. Make your beach day mathematical: Have your child arrange their seashells into piles of 3 or 5, and use those piles as the basis for multiplication and subtraction activities. Note Numbers:Have your child pay close attention to numbers found on clocks, cereal boxes, the kitchen calendar and the local newspaper. Have tell you how many articles are on page B4 of the paper and calculate how long they’ve been awake for. Pay close attention to menus: Whether you go out for dinner or order in, there’s bound to be a menu involved. Have your child pinpoint the price specific item, or list items that range between $10 and $15, or calculate how much a hamburger and a juice would cost. Change it up: Give your child a pile of coins–the bigger the assortment, the better! Have them find as many coin combinations as possible that equal the price of a beach ball.

    1. S.M.A.R.T. Cases are boxed kits that include science activities and supplementary materials that make it a complete learning package for young people. S.M.A.R.T. Cases are sponsored by the Torrance Refining Company.  WHY IS THIS CASE SO “S.M.A.R.T.”? S.M.A.R.T. Cases are science kits designed for hands-on learning. They come with the tools and resources to make learning fun and easy. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) requires that students engage in practice-rich activities that support their use of the case contents to figure out and explain complex phenomena and make connections to principles that cut across the content areas (NRC, 2012; NGSS Lead States, 2013). With the assistance of faculty at Torrance Unified School District, each case was evaluated for grade level and compliance with the framework for the NGSS.

    1. READS for Summer Learning.[14] In READS, which has been iteratively modified over several randomized trials, students receive eight books in the mail over the summer that are matched to their reading level and interests. Along with each book, students receive a tri-fold paper that leads them through a pre-reading activity and a post-reading comprehension check. Students are asked to mail the postage-prepaid tri-fold back; families receive reminders when tri-folds are not returned.

    2. An early comprehensive review of the literature summarized several findings regarding summer loss.[2] The authors concluded that: (1) on average, students’ achievement scores declined over summer vacation by one month’s worth of school-year learning, (2) declines were sharper for math than for reading, and (3) the extent of loss was larger at higher grade levels.

    1. The days get longer, and the weather becomes warmer during the summers, and teachers start dreaming about continuing their tutoring, and they do not want their income to stop during the summer vacations. There are some of the ideas which can help those tutors to earn some extra cash during the summers. Summer vacation can be the best time for these tutors to earn extra money and to achieve their financial targets.

    1. A gentle introduction to studying digital humanities, and into the digital humanities community in general, was the beginner workshop group entitled “Digitization Fundamentals and Their Application.” The focus of this workshop was to develop a functional knowledge of different methods of acquiring, refining, processing, and utilizing information pertaining to artefacts, aural or visual, static or animated. The course outlined how to plan successful digitization projects, develop an organizational structure to manage large caches of data, select appropriate devices and formats for input, and create platforms for display and dissemination of output. Each day was dedicated to a specific element of digitization - usually a medium, such as audio or video, but occasionally on a form of output, such as how to host digitization projects on the web. The mornings were generally spent acquiring the foundational knowledge needed to plan and implement a digitization project in that day’s medium, and in the afternoons participants were given free access to a wide range of equipment to help put the morning’s fundamentals into practice. This workshop allowed participants to practice digitization both in the lab and in the wild, as they were able to choose to work within one of the University of Victoria’s well-appointed computer labs or take equipment to a nearby site of their choice, such as the University of Victoria’s McPherson Library and its rare book room.

      Structure of the fundamentals class

    2. ese courses are the core of the DHSI curriculum, offering students the opportunity to learn in small, collegial groups at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels - and indeed offering faculty the opportunity to be students again for a week. That levelling spirit is reinforced by other aspects of the Institute which bring the various courses together. At the beginning and end of each day, all DHSI participants attend plenary lectures by leading practitioners in the field, which brings all participants together in the same room to consider questions that all digital humanists face (such as the nature of the academic job market, or lessons to be learned from particular projects). In recent years the morning lectures have showcased short presentations by graduate students in the field, a symptom of how student-driven the field has become even during the seven years since the DHSI began.
