    Hello everybody and welcome to this video on AQA English Language paper 2. Now the November re-sit results came out last week, and with them the examiners’ reports. In today’s video I will take you through some of the key points from the examiners’ reports for 2019, from both the November and the June exams. QUESTION 2: If you’ve seen my animated videos you’ll know that question 2 is about inferring or interpreting meaning. One good approach is (for example in a question about summarising differences) to find a point of difference, back it up with relevant quotations and then ask yourself ‘given that this is the difference, what does…

    Denied Education from Full Sail University Because of a Felony and Sex Offender Status

    (suspenseful music) – So I want to talk briefly about a situation that I had with a university, it’s called Full Sail University. And really what I want to say right off the top is, you deserve to get educated, you deserve to go to college if that’s what you choose. So what happened with me is I applied for Full Sail University, that’s the name of the place, it was an online university. I had some classes I was taking in regards to film production and video production and they denied me because of my sex offense. They basically said, because of your record, your criminal history, we have…

    InfoLit in Arts & Humanities – Module 2 (Animation 1)

    Thanks for coming to the meeting. I have received funding from the university for a research about the impact of local movies on the development of the local culture of Hong Kong. I definitely need help from you guys. I would like to invite you to take part in the research project with me. We also have to put on an exhibition about the research topic. The exhibition targets the general public and will be held on the campus. You will gain much from this project, knowledge in finding, evaluating and disseminating different resources. I am sure the experience can benefit your study! What do we need to do? Professor

    Explore: Educational Technology

    In Educational Technology we focus on a couple different aspects. First, we help teachers use technology better, more effectively in the classroom. And we also research new technologies to help people learn. We also provide pre-service classes for teachers, or teachers that are going to become teachers, and we help them understand technology and the tools that are available to them, and tools that their students are probably already familiar with if they’re not. One of the advantages of having an online program is that we don’t require that our students be in residence on campus here or in close proximity to the Boise State campus. So we do serve,…

    Obama Rips GOP Education Proposal That “Turns Back The Clock”

    Hi, everybody. In my State of the Union Address, I laid out my ideas to help working families feel more secure and earn the skills required to advance in a world of constant change.

And our kids too often paid the price. Over the past few years,…
