Endnote: how to add multiple references from same book

From the References menu, choose New Reference

1.Enter all of the bibliographic information that the references have in common (such as the year, book title, publisher, and city for different sections from one book).
2.Close the reference when you are finished. It remains selected in the Library window.
3.Choose Ctrl-C from the Edit menu.
4.Use the Ctrl-V command to paste the reference several times, to create as many partially-filled references as you need. You should paste directly to the Library window—do not open a new reference.

Tiger Woods discussing parenting

“I know if I had to pick one thing that my parents — I was very lucky to have two great parents — I was never afraid to go fail, because I knew that I would always come home to a home of love,” Woods said early last week. “My parents loved me unconditionally, no matter what. If I went out there and I gave it my best and I screwed up, it didn’t matter.

“My parents always told me they loved me every night, every time we said goodbye,” he added. “That was just something that I was never afraid to go out there and push myself to the limit. And if I failed, so what? I always had them to pick me up. I think that’s something that not all people have, but I was lucky to have that my entire life.”

Commencement Speeches

The Times featured excerpts from a number of commencement speakers. I found this quote from John Lewis to be exceptional:

Sometimes I hear some young people say nothing has changed. I feel like saying, come and walk in my shoes. In 1956, at the age of 16, being so inspired by Dr. King along with some of my brothers and sisters and first cousins, we went to the little library in Pike County, Alabama, a public library in the little town of Troy trying to get library cards, trying to check out some books. And we were told by the librarian that the library was for whites only and not for coloreds.

I never went back to that library until July 5, 1998. By that time I was a member of Congress, and I went there for a book signing of my book. Hundreds of blacks and white citizens showed up. I signed many books. In the end, they gave me a library card. It says something about the distance we’ve come and the progress we’ve made in laying down the burden of race.

From a college bound senior

“If you’re not dreadfully concerned with how you’re going to turn out,” he put it, “you’ll probably turn out fine.”

From a Samuel Freedman article here;my only question for this kid is who was advising him on different college options.  GW is a great school, but it’s a great, expensive school and surely this kid could have gotten into one of the better state schools, e.g., Michigan or Wisconsin.

Idea for next year SS methods

In order to create a library of units students could utilize in their classes, conduct a draft, first of US history and then of World History, where students “pick” their unit topic and then are responsible for presenting one from each.
These units would be posted as wikis at the end of the semester so that they’d have almost the complete run of US history and most of world history.

One of my major concerns this semester was that I focused overly much on American history — being an Americanist and all — but knowing that most of my students would be teaching World History during their first year, I’d better change this practice.

Always trust your students

“No one I know is placing any blame on the university for how they have done things,” Mr. Williams said. “I don’t think we should be blamed for not kicking him out for odd behavior, because if you went by that, there would be people kicked out every day. No one could have predicted what he did.” Student quoted in NYT article here. A thoughtful understanding…let’s see if the adults can match it.
