Q: What book to buy as inexperienced university teacher?

I taught for one year in Chinese high school international departments and private training centers, then took a 3 year break, and now I'm back about to start teaching at a university in Guizhou. Thing is, I'm really bad at planning. I feel like it'd be super helpful to have a book I could more or less base my courses on. Any recommendations?

download from "the great courses" on a torrent site the title "the art of teaching". A professor with 20 years experience teaches the class on videos of about 30 minutes length.

I mean, tp teach language in China, you're supposed to have some sort of TESOL qualification - surely you have this, and they've taught you how to teach...????

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
