... learning A range of techniques which are claimed to increase the learner’s capacity to absorb and retain information by focusing on learning how to learn. Proponents suggest that we use only a small percentage of our potential mental capacity, and that we could increase this by, for example, identifying our preferred learning style and adopting strategies such as the use of memory maps. Training in accelerated learning often draws on the theory of multiple intelligences . Isabella Wallace http://www.acceleratedlearning.com/method/ Summarizes the...

...in four broad stages. It was with the work of Henry Bourne , whose Antiquitates Vulgares; or, The Antiquities of the Common People ( 1725 ) was written condescendingly from the critical viewpoint of a churchman, that the subject first began to enlarge. This process was much accelerated by John Brand , who republished Bourne in 1777 with extensive additional commentary under the title Observations on Popular Antiquities , a further hugely expanded version of which, edited by Sir Henry Ellis , was published in 1813 . The first half of the 19th century...

...to drive forward vernacular religious publishing, then the emergence towards the end of the 16 th century of more radical types of Protestant belief, which were opposed to what they perceived as the compromising doctrines and policies of the state Church, had the effect of accelerating such publishing still further. The Marprelate *tracts provide an early example of this process. The pseudonymous ‘*Martin Marprelate ’ took ‘ecclesiological battle out of the study and into the street’ ( ODNB ). The Marprelate attacks on the episcopacy first began to appear...

...be difficult to trace (owing to the Record Office fire), sources do exist in abundance: time, ingenuity, and diligence can accomplish an astonishing amount, and while initial results may be discouraging, persistence ultimately pays off. For newcomers, guidance by old hands can accelerate successful searches: in Irish research there is no short cut to the wisdom accumulated through experience, and time in large quantities remains the pre‐eminent resource. Local history and family history, then, have become exciting and challenging pursuits in Ireland,...

...all anxious to discipline potential sources of social, political, and religious disorder. At every turn we encounter the social ripples created by pushy commercial and industrial entrepreneurs keen to control the space, time, and energy of the labouring masses. The accelerating urgency of fin de siècle campaigns to reform popular manners and morals can be clearly linked to the traumatic impact of *revolution [1] , *war [2] , sectarian struggle, *riots , and reform protest that studded our period from the 1770s to the 1830s. In the face of such...

...some of which provide substantial textual databases, including the Qur’ān, Ḥadīth , and other essential Islamic texts, as well as a great deal of secondary material, much of it promoting particular doctrinal, sectarian, and political viewpoints. The Internet has also accelerated a pre-existing tendency to adopt English, rather than Arabic, as an international Muslim language. As in the rest of the world, the long-term effects of the development of electronic textuality on Muslim book culture cannot yet be predicted. Bibliography H. S. AbiFarès , ...

...itself to this effort. The École des Chartes, possibly the century’s greatest legacy to librarianship, was founded in 1821 in order to train *palaeographers and *archivists . It was moved in 1897 to the new Sorbonne buildings. The period 1870–1914 confirmed and accelerated the trends of the second book revolution. Although around 6,000 titles were printed in 1828 , the figure had risen to 15,000 by 1889 and grew to about 25,000 by 1914 . The growth was particularly spectacular in the newspaper and periodical press, finally liberalized by the...

... curve A curve on a graph which shows performance changes against practice time or number of practice sessions. The term implies that changes in performance mirror changes in learning. Many scientists believe that this idea is an oversimplification ( see latent learning ). Learning curves (or, more correctly, performance curves) are used to depict the acquisition of skill. For many sports they are negatively accelerating, that is, show the fastest rate of improvement in the early stages of practice and the slowest rate as individuals approach the limits...

Because this period is so demoralizing, it has been called the ‘plateau of despond’. However, if an athlete perseveres and continues the training effort for long enough, the period invariably passes and it is often followed by accelerated improvement. See also physiological limit...

Intervention is also used to support pupils in key areas of the curriculum such as mathematics and English where they are identified as underachieving in relation to...
