Travel often inspires the creation of narratives about journeys and destinations, more so with the increasing availability of online platforms, applications for smartphones and tablets, and various other social media technologies. This book examines travel blogs and their associated social media as a form of self-presentation that negotiates the tensions between discourses of travel and tourism. As such, it addresses how contemporary travellers use online platforms to communicate their experiences of journeys and destinations, and how the traveller/tourist dichotomy finds expression in these narratives. Addressing the need for more in-depth analysis through a study of blogs, this exploration of networked narratives of an individual's travel experience considers personal motivations, self-promotion, and self-presentation as key factors in the creation of both personal and commercial travel blogs. As this text applies concepts such as self-presentation and heteroglossia, it will be of interest to both students and scholars of tourism, new media, sociology, cultural studies, and discourse studies.

From Music Student to Teacher: A Professional Approach helps prospective music educators begin their transition from music student to professional music teacher. The text uniquely works to build upon the individual's personal experience to enhance their approach to the profession. The authors help students first recognize their personal perspectives of the profession, and uncover the assumptions they have concerning learning and teaching. They are then prepared to make mindful informed decisions about their professional education.

The topics and activities are deliberately organized to help the reader think as a professional rather than a student. Divided into three parts: (a) discovery of self, (b) discovery of teaching, and (c) discovery of learners; The three parts address the primary stages of teacher development. Within each part readers are connected to the theoretical foundations of the text and the process of becoming an insider to the profession.From Music Student to Teacher: A Professional Approach incorporates online resources and tools that are already familiar to students in their world of networking through social media

Features include:

  • Social networking activities to aid self-reflection and discussion

  • 'Connecting to the Profession' sections that provide resources which help to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

  • Discussion and glossary that provide a solid base in professional terminology

  • An integrated companion website, including videos of teaching practice and further activities for self-reflection, plus instructor material.

My Mini Books Of Poetry, set the tone for emotional feelings...such as joy, inner peace, and reactions to life's interesting surprises. The Series 1, TRAVELING MAN (7 poems), are poems basically about a man's journey. And the unique moments that he encounters. THE RATTLE OF FEAR for example, tells a story about his shocking encounter with a snake. THE LADY IN BROWN shows how a man's crush on a certain lady, turns him into being a hero. And in the real world, things don't always turn out right. The poem JUST MY LUCK describes such a situation. And LONELY AND WONDERFUL RIVER takes our mind to a serene place and how nature can capture our hearts. The Series 2, DREAM IN A BOTTLE (8 poems), tap into the soul of a person's inner being and mind. The poem I'M FLYING HIGH is how I take my birthday as a means of rebirth. An opportunity to be grateful for another year. JUST GIVE ME A TASTE shows expression of how love can give you such a desire for wanting to love another human being. And to express yourself to that person deeply. The poem DREAM IN A BOTTLE and the title of this series, is one of my personal favorites. A short but sweet poem. I've always been a dreamer. And writing my poetry series...has been a dream of mind. And I hope that you'll enjoy reading my poems as much as I enjoyed writing them. Feel free to write me at rtmbizproj@yahoo.com. Put "About Poetry/Series 1 & 2" in the subject heading. Thank you, Ricky Tyrone Morrow RTM-Books
