If you want to learn how to shoot a basketball, you begin by carefully observing someone who knows how to shoot a basketball. If you want to be a writer, you begin by carefully observing the work of accomplished writers. Recognizing the importance that modeling plays in the learning process, high school English teacher Kelly Gallagher shares how he gets his students to stand next to and pay close attention to model writers, and how doing so elevates his students' writing abilities. Write Like This is built around a central premise: if students are to grow as writers, they need to read good writing, they need to study good writing, and, most important, they need to emulate good writers.
In Write Like This, Kelly emphasizes real-world writing purposes, the kind of writing he wants his students to be doing twenty years from now. Each chapter focuses on a specific discourse: express and reflect, inform and explain, evaluate and judge, inquire and explore, analyze and interpret, and take a stand/propose a solution. In teaching these lessons, Kelly provides mentor texts (professional samples as well as models he has written in front of his students), student writing samples, and numerous assignments and strategies proven to elevate student writing.
By helping teachers bring effective modeling practices into their classrooms, Write Like This enables students to become better adolescent writers. More important, the practices found in this book will help our students develop the writing skills they will need to become adult writers in the real world.

Northcentral University, a global leader in online program offerings, has recently established The Graduate School, an enhanced version of its Office of Academic Research. Officially launched on October 1, 2011, The Graduate School is designed to facilitate the dissertation research process for all doctoral students. Gregory T. Bradley, Ph.D., a 20-year veteran of both academic and professional research, has been appointed Dean of The Graduate School.
We are pleased to have Dr. Bradley serve as Dean of the Graduate School and are excited that Northcentral University can provide exceptional guidance to our doctoral students shared Northcentral President, Dr. Clinton D. Gardner.
The Graduate School serves the doctoral students of the universitys three schools: School of Business and Technology Management, School of Education, and School of Behavioral and Health Sciences. Once a Northcentral student has taken their comprehensive exams (comps) and reached the doctoral candidacy stage of their academic odyssey, they now become a part of The Graduate School.
Even for bright, talented individuals, the transition to becoming an independent scholar can be confounding for some students, relates Bradley. Because of the challenges involved in the dissertation research stage of our intensive programs, we have established The Graduate School to more effectively support the needs of our doctoral students as they journey through the process. Our ultimate objective is to provide our students superior foundational guidance, so they can successfully achieve their goals.
According to Dr. Bradley, the four primary responsibilities of The Graduate School are as follows:

Grade Point Average or a GPA is every student’s nightmare. Over the age, there have been countless arguments and controversies, surrounding GPAs. Basic issues such as the need of GPA to complex debates such as, if GPA can be used to determine a student’s understanding of the subject. Before knowing how to calculate GPA, it is imperative to know what comprises Grade Point Average. It is a standard used to determine the standard of a student’s performance, academic wise. The significance of a GPA varies from one form of educational institute to another. For instance, if a student scores a high GPA in high school, that can be used to determine, if a student can get into a particular college. Same goes for college GPA. Depending on a person’s college GPA, a company may decide to take on a particular candidate or not.
Although the purpose of GPA is the same, there are many formulae used in knowing how to calculate GPA. These different formulae may apply to both schools and college. Also, the value of a GPA varies from institution to institution. For instance a 3.3 GPA may be a B grade or a B- depending from school to school. To calculate the GPA as per the school/college one is planning to apply, they can calculate it accordingly.
This can be illustrated with the help of an example. The example is listed as below:
Suppose a school’s GPA’s values are: A= 4.0, A- = 3.67, B= 3.33, B- = 2.67, C= 2.33, C- = 1.67, D= 1.0, D- = .67, F=0.0.
If a person does three classes a term, and earns an A, B and a C-, to calculate the GPA, one would have to add them together and divide the total by the number of classes. So in this case, it would be
4.0+3.33+1.67/3 = 8.97/3 which gives us 2.99, which means the student gets a B grade.
Calculating a GPA of one semester is not enough, to get the grand total, it is important to know the GPA of every semester. The total GPA is also called the culminative Grade Point Average. Here, the GPA of every semester is taken into consideration and divided by the total number of classes. If one is unable to calculate the figures manually, there are special GPA calculators available online too. This is where one can enter the values and calculate the accurate GPA or CGPA. There are two types of GPAs: weighted GPA and unweighted GPA. Unweighted GPA is the regular method of calculating the total score by adding the value of the grades and dividing it by the number of subjects or classes taken. Whereas the weighted GPA, is a tactic to increase a student’s grade. But this GPA generally depends on the level of the course that is undertaken by the student.
GPA, be it weighted or unweighted is an important part of a student’s life. Students and parents, at times, even teachers may crib about the insignificance of GPA in the corporate world, but it is also a standard measurement to know, how much a student has grasped the course. Knowing how to calculate GPA is only a ripple in the pond.
