Of course, you know what you like. But would you like to know more about how a photograph is composed? By learning what visual elements the artist uses to communicate with you, you may appreciate better why you like or don't like a particular work of art. In the presentation below, the concepts are illustrated with photographic works. Click on the work for a larger image of it and then click on BACK to return to the presentation.

Nuovo thanks the Museum of Photographic Art (MOPA) in San Diego for allowing us to adopt one of their papers for this presentation. Artistic examples were added by Nuovo with permission the artist. All images are ed by the photographer, Jack Leigh. All rights are reserved.


To develop visual literacy

Learn the basic vocabulary used in formal analyses in the visual arts

Combine content information with formal analysis to read (analyze) photographs

To enhance your appreciation of photography it is necessary to develop the skills to make careful visual analysis. While everyone can easily discuss the contents of photographs (what you see), most need more training to learn about formal analysis used in the visual arts. Formal analysis focuses on an artwork's formal qualities, or those visual elements that give it form. These include: shape, size, texture, line, space, etc.

Formal analysis provides a basic common language in the visual arts. However, a description of a photograph based only on formal analysis would be incomplete. Photographers make decisions both about composition (arrangement of visual elements) as well as content (meaning) when taking photographs. Consequently, it is important to consider the artist's intentions for making a photograph of a particular subject. Finally, the historical and social context in which a photograph was made must also be carefully considered.

An important note: each image offers a variety of interpretations. Therefore, the information provided in this resource for each photograph should be regarded as a starting point for discussion and not as a conclusive interpretation. There is no one correct answer when interpreting works of art. We encourage you to carefully examine photographs to develop your skills for analyzing photographs and to explore your own personal interpretations.

Training strategy-the building-block approach

Training strategy-the building-block approachTraining Strategy - The Building-block Approach



This manual is in response to an Armywide need for a new map reading and land navigation training strategy based on updated doctrine. This chapter describes and illustrates this approach to teaching these skills.


Institution courses are designed to prepare the soldier for a more advanced duty position in his unit. The critical soldiering skills of move, shoot, and communicate must be trained, practiced, and sustained at every level in the schools as well as in the unit. The map reading and land navigation skills taught at each level are critical to the soldiering skills of the duty position for which he is being school-trained. Therefore, they are also a prerequisite for a critical skill at a more advanced level.

a. A soldier completing initial entry training must be prepared to become a team member. He must be proficient in the basic map reading and dead reckoning skills.

b. After completing the primary leadership development course, a soldier should be ready to be a team leader. This duty position requires expertise in the skills of map reading, dead reckoning, and terrain association.

c. A soldier completing the basic NCO course has been trained for the squad leader position. Map reading and land navigation at skill level 3 requires development of problem-solving skills; for example' route selection and squad tactical movement.

d. At skill level 4, the soldier completing the advanced NCO course is prepared to assume the duty position of platoon sergeant or operations NCO. Planning tactical movements, developing unit sustainment, and making decisions are the important land navigation skills at this level.

e. Officers follow similar progression. A new second lieutenant must have mastered map reading and land navigation skills, and have an aptitude for dead reckoning and terrain association.

(1) After completing a branch-specific officer basic course, the officer must be prepared to assume the duties and responsibilities of a platoon leader. He will be required to execute the orders and operations of his commander. Map reading and land navigation at this level require development of the problem-solving skills of route selection and tactical movement.

(2) After completing the officer advanced course, the officer is prepared to assume the duties and responsibilities of a company commander or primary staff officer. The commander must plan and execute operations with full consideration to all aspects of navigation. The staff officer must recommend battlefield placement of all administrative, logistical, and personnel resources. These recommendations cannot be tactically sound unless the estimate process includes a detailed analysis of the area of operations. This ability requires expertise in all map reading and navigation skills to include the use of nonmilitary maps, aerial photographs, and terrain analysis with respect to both friendly and enemy forces. The commander/staff officer must plan and execute a program to develop the unit's Train the Trainer Program for land navigation.

f. A program of demonstrated proficiency of all the preceding skill levels to the specified conditions and standards is a prerequisite to the successful implementation of a building-block training approach. This approach will reflect duty position responsibilities in map reading and land navigation. An understanding of the fundamental techniques of dead reckoning or field-expedient methods is a basic survival skill that each soldier must develop at the initial entry level. This provides a support foundation for more interpretive analysis at intermediate skill levels 2 and 3, with final progression to level 4. Mastery of all map reading and land navigation tasks required in previous duty positions is essential for the sequential development of increasingly difficult abilities. This building-block approach is supported by scope statements. It is part of the training doctrine at each level in the institutional training environment of each course.

g. Exportable training end instructor support/certification packages, based upon the updated map reading and land navigation field manual, are being developed. Innovative training devices and materials are being developed for use in the institution, ROTC regions, and the field. (See Appendixes E and H.)

How do I create strategies?

I want to create a strategy that alerts me to when an indicator is greater or less than a number or so. I don't want to automatically trade, I want it to alert me when there is a potentially good trade about to happen.

I'm not really certain as to where to begin. I'm familiar with programming and done a little c++ and basic.

Anyway, my understanding is that I need to know how to code in "LUA." I'm reading the wikipedia article now. Then I would add the. lua file via the Strategies menu.

Is there some basic guide somewhere?

How to use gann indicatorsHow To Use Gann Indicators

Gann studies have been used by active traders for decades and, even though the futures and stock markets have changed considerably, they remain a popular method of analyzing an asset's direction. New trading areas, such as the foreign exchange market and the invention of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have also made it necessary to revisit some of the construction rules and application concepts. Although the basic construction of Gann angles remains the same, this article will explain why the changes in price levels and volatility have deemed it necessary to adjust a few key components.

Training plan template ms office

Training plan template ms officeOneNote for teachers—training, lesson plans and new languages for Class Notebook Creator

As developers of OneNote and the OneNote Class Notebook Creator, we realize that creating exciting products is only the first step towards to making a difference in education. The next steps are to actively train educators on how they can use OneNote in ways that are immediately relevant to their daily school lives and give them the content that serves as a basis for further curriculum generation. The goal behind OneNoteforTeachers. a new site developed exclusively for educators is to take a completely new OneNote user and magically turn them into a OneNote Ninja in about an hour without any cost to them or their school. Once a teacher masters the OneNote Ninja arts, adding the Bing in the Classroom lesson plans provides a new level of expertise that even Jackie Chan would envy.

OneNoteforTeachers—content that clicks and training that travels

OneNoteforTeachers delivers FREE interactive trainings with the following unique benefits for teachers (and administrators):

Focus on basic to advanced scenarios — Our guides start with the “Teacher Basic” tasks that you would do if you just opened OneNote for the first time, and then walks you through some more advanced “Teacher Scenarios” that might involve Office 365 and OneNote class notebooks. Many features are covered in the context of these scenarios, and you can proceed through the guides in any order and as many times you’d like.

Scenarios based on teacher feedback — In defining what we wanted to include in the trainings, we asked real innovative educators who already use OneNote what they thought other teachers should know about to get started.

Interactive content at your pace and FREE — Our training takes the form of narrated, interactive click-through guides with customizable timing options. Each guide takes approximately five minutes to complete and has play and pause options. It’s as if you have an instructor sitting right by you telling you where to click and why. Best of all, like OneNote, this training doesn’t cost anything and is optimized for cross-device usage. (Guides are delivered in Silverlight and HTML5.)

Built - in sharing — Not only are the OneNote trainings all in one place, but they are each individually accessible via a link. That means, if you find a training you think would benefit your colleagues, you can just copy/paste the link or use the sharing buttons in the upper right side of each training and share with your colleagues. There is even the ability to embed trainings in most major websites and blogs, as we have done here !

Since launching the site, we have seen great engagement from the educator community with average site visit times spanning at least the length of one guide and sharing of this resource on LinkedIn, Twitter. and blogs. We are heavily investing in making OneNoteforTeachers even better, with translation of both the site and guides into additional languages. We are also creating a companion set of interactive OneNote guides for students.

Not a teacher, but want trainings for you? We have school administrator and IT administrator guides on this page as well—including a OneNote Class Notebook Creator installation guide for IT admins.

Whatever your role in supporting education, complete your “Ninja Training” and spread the word about this great resource!

New curriculum in OneNote—Bing in the Classroom lesson plans

While training lays the groundwork, it is always helpful to educators when they discover a tangible resource to use with their students. According to Helen Gooch, Microsoft fellow and master trainer, “this is especially true when the resource contains great lesson plans, which are ready to use, are framed around amazing photographs, draw the viewer in and just make students want to know more!”

Bing in the Classroom (BiC) is a resource that uses visually appealing photographs and short video clips to create integrated lessons, which teach digital literacy while aligned to Common Core standards. With BiC students are fully engaged in the learning experience.

But that is not the best part of this resource. BiC has partnered with OneNote to bring these lessons into the student’s ultimate tool for learning—OneNote!

A BiC lesson plan delivered in OneNote with multimedia like handwriting, Office files, tags and audio recording.

BiC lesson plans started with Word documents and then moved to PowerPoint decks. Each day there are three lessons for grades K-4, 5-8 and 9-12. Each lesson is focused around an essential question to answer. Now, with the power of OneNote to add screen clippings, voice and/or video commentary and the ability to digitally write, draw or annotate in a digital notebook you have a winning combination.

Perhaps you have heard of OneNote or dabbled with it a little but still feel that it is a really new tool for you. The OneNote team has worked hard over the last several months to help educators get up and running quickly with OneNote in their classrooms.

Check out any of the following resources on OneNoteforTeachers to help you get started with OneNote or to get some additional assistance:

Remember, OneNote is free (onenote ), and is now available on all platforms and devices, so any teacher can try out OneNote in their classroom and use the BiC lesson plans as a great starting point.

Thinking strategies in reading comprehension

Thinking strategies in reading comprehensionThinking Strategies in Reading Comprehension

Kids need to be taught what good readers do. Believe it or not, its not intuitive. This means we must teach kids reading comprehension strategies.

I graduated from a teachers certification program and began teaching without the first clue about how to teach children reading particularly in the intermediate grades where I worked (5th grade). My teammate wrote a grant for Lori Conrad from P. E.B. C. to work with us weekly, and thanks to Lori, I finally began a journey thats lasted my career — to teach children to be thoughtful learners, to notice their own thinking, to explicitly model, and to teach reading comprehension strategies. (And I was lucky enough to begin working for PEBC as a staff developer for many years!)

Reading Comprehension Strategies

Here are the (thinking and) reading comprehension strategies

¦ ask questions

¦ draw inferences

¦ determine what is important in text

¦ create sensory images

¦ synthesize information

¦ problem solve and repair meaning when meaning is interrupted

In school . these are best taught in a workshop approach where first, the teacher teaches and models the strategy, two, the students apply and practice the strategy for a sustained period of time, and three the students and teacher gather to reflect and share.

At home . learn the thinking strategies. Now, you can ask questions to determine where your child is with each particular strategy. Notice where your child might need more help. Can he create a mental picture? Can he infer? Can he connect to other books?

When youre helping your child with a strategy, I recommend you do the following:

To start, show your child what good readers do. In other words, you must say what reading comprehension strategy youre using inside your head. If you want to work on the strategy of asking questions, youll want to be showing how many questions a good reader asks naturally. during the day, driving the car, taking a walk, and reading a book. (Read more about this at Kleinspiration where Ive written about making connections. )

Give your child a stack of sticky notes to keep track of instances in her reading where she used a reading comprehension strategy such as asks a question.

Decide on when you and your child will share BOTH of your sticky notes. You do it too, please! Show your child that youre a reader and youll do what youre asking your child to do.

And, dont sticky notes make everything fun. Just dont overdo it so it becomes distracting.

Encouraging children to be conscious about their thinking is essential to comprehension.

Basic strategies - where the education for all beginner traders starts.

Basic strategies use simple chart pattern recognition rules and one or two basic indicators. By learning to recognize and trade simple patterns, novice Forex traders will be able to make a much smoother transition to more advanced trading systems and methods.

We start from the very basic Forex trading strategies that will help beginner traders to identify entry and exit points and foresee market turns; and we will gradually advance to more advanced Forex trading systems.

Before we start: two words about Stop Loss orders – they should be set either in fixed amount of pips (you may try to use 20-30 pips with those simple Forex systems) or, if chart permits, slightly over the last highest/lowest price swing point.

Attention all traders: trading strategies are posted for their educational purpose only. Trading rules may be subject to interpretation. Planned risk levels may be increased dramatically under extreme market conditions. Use the ideas and/or modify them to suit your trading style, but only at your own risk. We recommend testing your trading system on demo account before investing real money.
