    The Tao of Teaching: The Ageless Wisdom of Taoism and the Art of Teaching

    I wanted to share...

    I have recently got into Taoism, although its been lurking in the background for a long time, ive wanted to learn more and I came across this book which combines the philosophy of the Tao with the practice of teaching...when I saw it, it was just begging me to read it.

    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Tao-Teaching-Ageless-Wisdom-Taoism/dp/0452280958]Amazon.com: The Tao of Teaching: The Ageless Wisdom of Taoism and the Art of Teaching: Greta K. Nagel: Books[/ame]

    Very insightful for achieving and effective balance in your teaching style and how you relate to students, I throughly recommend it.

    Cheers!

    If I can't download it from Englishtips.org (doing maintenance right now) when can I borrow it to make a copy?

    Easy tiger, I have many worldly interests, Taoism relates directly to my martial arts study.

    A lecture about English

    A lecture about English A linguistics professor was lecturing to his English class one day. "In English," he said, "A double negative forms a positive.In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language where in a double positive can form a negative." A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right."Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be .(Abraham Lincoln ,American president )

    Give me a chance mate, was at the pub!
    Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.
