For example, I am making a “Yoga book” for my girlfriend. To keep myself motivated, I will keep something in mind. However, I moved through various “something”s that each display different parts of my astrological makeup: first, to make my love need me more in the future, to get more security in my love based on how I impress her (Leo Venus) is my Cancer sun; to prove my value to the one I love is my Taurus moon; later I focused on how much money I was saving by creating our own plan instead of going to a Yoga class (Taurus moon) which gave me tangible & practical (Earth-y) results for my work, which is my Capricorn Saturn (the fact that this keeps me motivated is something I can only say for my grown-up self, as Saturn always shows his effects later in one’s life, after the challenges have already been overcome).

» Extended lesson for finding out more about yourself and your loved ones:
Colleagues: to assert or hold power
Partners: to keep the upper hand
Bosses: to stay in control of what’s yours, and how to take what’s not yours (extend your sphere of influence)
Customers: to market suitably
***How to gain respect from others: know what they respect based on what their values are. Look up their moon sign, where their deepest values lie. You can appeal to different elements of their sign, depending on 1) your ability to keep all the different elements in mind and 2) your ability to read the situation and apply the right method. Regardless, the point is to appeal to certain basic values: if they are a cardinal moon, show them that you would like to or know how to take action and initiative; a fixed moon, show them that you focus on how to improve on and control yourself; a mutable moon, show them that you are flexible, adaptable, and work well with others. DO NOT express a positive value attached to one along with a negative value attached to its opposite: it is possible that it will conflict with other areas of their chart. If you choose to focus on a negative, make sure it is as carefully thought-out as the positive, that it is intentional and in line with what you know about their astrological makeup.
Research strands to follow up on:
Some notes from before:
STEP 1: Find a sellable product
STEP 2: Find a source in China
STEP 3: Order & test a sample
STEP 4: Market it
STEP 5: By your first shipment
☐ Google the best ways to word or market on eBay, and how to use keywords
☐ Google ESL lessons for email correspondence
☐ Google “how to improve your email correspondence”
☐ Also include SEO writing, email-optimal language, analytics, etc.
☐ Pull from the websites/pdf’s
List of things I thought of that need to be taken care of for the consultation process:
☐ Make a list of universities & their particulars
☐ Make a handy pdf for students (to print and give to them: first for the basics from deciding to applying, then another once they’ve chosen a uni)
EDUCERI, or CERI (The Centre for Educational Research and Innovation) is the name for the “topic” of education under the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), which works with governments to assist in developing beneficial policies in:

FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT summary from the article:
These directions for assessment underpin a new set of assessment practices and a new assessment culture in which assessment is used as a tool for learning (Gielen et al in Segers et al, 2003). In this culture students become active participants in the learning and assessment process by sharing responsibility in this process. Students are not powerless observers of a mystified assessment process but become engaged participants in sharing and developing criteria, in self– and peer–assessment, in reflecting on their own learning and keeping track of their performance, and in utilising feedback to refine their knowledge, skills and behaviours. In this culture teachers do not relinquish their obligations to students in the learning and assessment 3 process but work with students to assist them to develop strategies for learning and assessing. Teachers need to scaffold student learning by supporting them to close the gap between the desired goal and their current level of achievement.
☐ Vygotsky’s (1962) notion of the Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD)
The central component of these new directions in assessment and the new assessment culture that has developed in recent years is that assessment should serve student learning. The student is at the centre of the learning and teaching process. Student learning can be viewed as the interface of formative and summative assessment practices. Teachers should promote student responsibility for assessment as part of the educative process and should guide students to achieving improved outcomes. The ability to understand as well as to present one’s own learning is an essential component of lifelong learning and involves a level of self-assessment that can be practised in schools (Wilson & Wing Jan, 1998). Therefore, both formative and summative classroom assessment should play an important part in the learning and teaching process and should be integral to the learning and teaching cycle.
Assessment promotes deeper understanding of knowledge as well as deeper understanding of ways of acquiring knowledge, skills and behaviours. Ultimately, assessment processes assist learners to delve into deeper understandings of concepts and they enhance an integrated understanding of the world.
…. provide the basis for the development of the person, his or her capacity to acquire not only new knowledge, skills and behaviours, but also develop behaviours that will assist them to lead fulfilling lives in a variety of societal contexts. The development of highly INNOVATIVE, CREATIVE, and SKILLED individuals with life-long learning attitudes is a critical factor for the SOCIAL, CULTURAL, and ECONOMIC GROWTH of our society. Assessment practices should reflect the nature of the Standards by assessing performance in an integrated way.”
This is like my theory of analysis, or at least backs it up:
In this Assessment Advice assessment is defined as the ongoing process of gathering, analysing and reflecting on evidence to make informed and consistent judgements to improve future student learning.
Substantial research exists on the characteristics of good practice for assessing student learning. This research is summarised in the following set of principles.
Beautiful and empowering!
Earl also expresses the view that “effective assessment empowers students to ask reflective questions and consider a range of strategies for learning and acting. Over time, students move forward in their learning when they can use personal knowledge to construct meaning, have skills of self-monitoring to realize that they don’t understand something, and have ways of deciding what to do next”
Collect eBooks, organize them and post them on Baidu Cloud.
After getting money, purchase ebooks on Kindle.
Access to these
There will be a common form for each book read that is very simple in nature, one to three questions. Teachers will be trained on how to sign off on whether or not the form has been completed satisfactorily.
In addition to checking off the forms, teachers will be responsible for classes based on a certain book read together with a group of students, once a week per class. Depending on the amount of students and separated by level.

A text set is composed of a collection of various resources from different genres and media. Sets typically are organized to meet the needs and interests of a wide range of readers. The text set can focus on one concept and can include multiple genres, such as books, charts and maps, informational pamphlets, poetry and songs, photographs, nonfiction books, almanacs, or encyclopedias. It is important to note that text sets may have some or all of the reading materials as digital or hard copies.
Expand the types of literature you use with current students, and the ones available for future students.
This was a great resource in understanding some basic foundations for “Classroom Management Theory” but they are all extremely limited. I will dig into the foundations further for training purposes (as I exhibit most of these theoretically-based approaches naturally in my teaching), but I suppose I will need to create my own psychological/behavioral profile for children. I will begin with
