Lectures’ Handouts + Materials From My Textbook + Other Useful Resources

Featured

Making the complex simple! For all those interested… Since one of my recent books, namely, “The Language of Science,” is out of print and hard to come by, I’ve decided to give you  some access to it. My friends, here are my lectures’ handouts (Modules 1-4) and some stuff from my textbook. All newly revised and updated: see, for example, materials on analysing visuals/infographics, writing argumentative essays and research papers etc. The actual lectures and the textbook cover much, much more! Hope this helps:) Enjoy!

Winter Warmth

© Sam                                             Published: October 2008

Piles of snow beneath my boots
chilly winds blowing everywhere
snow keeps mounting on the posts
on the windows and on the roads
shovels outside,
soups inside
hot and rich,
chicken and corn
coming back from all the work
this is what I look for
the warm chestnuts,
the cracking fire
this is my winter warmth
