Luckily, Nancy and Plum have each other, and though their prospects may be bleak, they're determined to change their lot for the better. If their plan works, the spirited sisters will never spend Christmas at the cold, dark boarding school again. But what will they find on the other side of Mrs. Monday's gate?

In the real world a lot of activities require people to work in groups. Consciously or unconsciously each member assesses other members using their own predetermined criteria. Recognizing the significance of such assessment this book presents tried and tested ways of peer assessment that provide students with pleasant memorable experiences. Everyday challenges are addressed and possible solutions are offered. Drawing from over 40 years of academic experience in several different countries of the world, the author uses the many lessons learned to substantiate recommendations. Simple, straightforward yet groundbreaking techniques are employed to enhance peer assessment and improve its validity and reliability. Students learn to be more self-aware, productive, autonomous, collaborative and communicative. The strategies discussed in this book help both educators and students to manage and maintain trust. Shareware graphics used for mental stimulation and pictorial illustrations are intended to simplify explanations. This is the "go-to‟ book when you need help with peer assessment. -- Provided by publisher
Anybody can do anything by Betty Bard MacDonald( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comedy is probably not the first thing that springs to mind when we recall the Great Depression, but when Betty MacDonald recounted her experiences of that "hard" and "dreary" era in Anybody Can Do Anything, she found lots to laugh about. Chronologically, this book takes place after her misadventures on a chicken ranch--the subject of Betty's first book, The Egg and I--and before her account of a year spent in a tuberculosis sanatorium, recounted in The Plague and I. Despite the hilarity with which she described her time spent chicken farming, she was unhappy in her marriage and terribly lonely. Anybody Can Do Anything opens with her leaving the farm and her husband and making her way with her two children back to Seattle and the bosom of her family, just as the Depression begins. Some of the sentiments and words Betty uses are, arguably, dated and not politically correct. Still, they afford us an interesting window into our recent past and a glimpse of what life was like before the various civil rights movements, women's rights, and political correctness. Betty is worth listening to just for the sheer entertainment value she provides--a wonderful combination of beautiful writing and laugh-out-loud humor--and for those who want more, her reflections can teach us much about coping with adversity
