The autobiography of Benjamin Franklin by Benjamin Franklin( Book )

5 editions published in 1931 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blessed with enormous talents and the energy and ambition to go with them, Franklin was a statesman, author, inventor, printer, and scientist. He helped draft the Declaration of Independence and later was involved in negotiating the peace treaty with Britain that ended the Revolutionary War. He also invented bifocals, a stove that is still manufactured, a water-harmonica, and the lightning rod. Franklin's extraordinary range of interests and accomplishments are brilliantly recorded in his Autobiography, considered one of the classics of the genre. Covering his life up to his prewar stay in London as representative of the Pennsylvania Assembly, this charming self-portrait recalls Franklin's boyhood, his determination to achieve high moral standards, his work as a printer, experiments with electricity, political career, experiences during the French and Indian War, and more. Related in an honest, open, unaffected style, this highly readable account offers a wonderfully intimate glimpse of the Founding Father sometimes called "the wisest American." - Amazon

Programmed instruction; techniques and trends by Edward F O'Day( Book )

5 editions published between 1970 and 1971 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The several research studies reported in this book are based on data supplied over a two-year period of nearly three thousand learners from a state college, three separate junior colleges, and a military installation. These studies attempted to assign relative figures of merit to the popular techniques of Skinner, Crowder, and Pressey, and also to examine new combinations of the familiar programed instruction (pi) techniques of overt responding, immediate feedback, and small-steps. Pi principles themselves were also studied in a configurative network of specified classes of learners. The results of these studies lead the authors to make specific recommendations about programing techniques. A bibliography is supplied. Appendices include samples of the formats studies and the resulting data tables. (Jy)
