David James, Ian Warwick
R530 Discovery Miles 5 300 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Every school is different, but all schools face very similar challenges. Drawing on their combined teaching experience of over fifty years in both independent and state schools, educationalists David James and Ian Warwick have chosen ten questions that tackle the most difficult challenges that face schools today, and invited leading education experts to address them in stimulating and accessible essays, which are each under a thousand words. With contributions from John Hattie, David Blunkett, Doug Lemov, Anthony Seldon, Sandy Speicher, Tim Hawkes and many more, this insightful and engaging book features exclusive essays with some of the world's most well-known and well-respected thinkers and speakers in education, business and politics, accompanied by thought-provoking introductions. The contributors provide new perspectives on some of the issues that occupy educationalists today; they challenge conventional wisdom and, above all, put forward practical, workable, evidence-based solutions that can transform teaching and learning. World Class is a powerful manifesto for change that nobody interested in education today can ignore.

In rural America, perhaps more than other areas, high school students have the ability to contribute to the revitalization and sustainability of their home communities by engaging in oral history projects designed to highlight the values that are revered and worth saving in their region. The Arkansas Delta Oral History Project, a multiyear collaboration between the University of Arkansas and several public high schools in small, rural Arkansas towns, gives students that opportunity. Through the project, trained University of Arkansas studentmentors work with high school students on in-depth writing projects that grow out of oral history interviews. The Delta, a region where the religious roots of southern culture run deep and the traditions of cooking, farming, and hunting are passed from generation to generation, provides the ideal subject for oral history projects. In this detailed exploration of the project, the authors draw on theories of cultural studies and critical pedagogy of place to show how students' work on religion, food, and race exemplifies the use of community literacy to revitalize a distressed economic region. Advancing the discussion of place-based education, The Arkansas Delta Oral History Project is both inspirational and instructive in offering a successful model of an authentic literacy program.

Girls and Autism - Educational, Family and Personal Perspectives (Paperback): Barry Carpenter, Francesca Happe, Jo Egerton Girls and Autism - Educational, Family and Personal Perspectives (Paperback)
Barry Carpenter, Francesca Happe, Jo Egerton
R813 Discovery Miles 8 130 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Often thought of as a predominantly 'male' disorder, autism has long gone unidentified, unnoticed and unsupported in girls - sometimes with devastating consequences for their social and mental well-being. As current research reveals a much more balanced male-to-female ratio in autism, this book provides crucial insight into autistic girls' experiences, helping professionals to recognize, understand, support and teach them effectively. Drawing on the latest research findings, chapters consider why girls have historically been overlooked by traditional diagnostic approaches, identifying behaviours that may be particular to girls, and exploring the 'camouflaging' that can make the diagnosis of autistic girls more difficult. Chapters emphasize both the challenges and advantages of autism and take a multidisciplinary approach to encompass contributions from autistic girls and women, their family members, teachers, psychologists and other professionals. The result is an invaluable source of first-hand insights, knowledge and strategies, which will enable those living or working with girls on the autism spectrum to provide more informed and effective support. Giving voice to the experiences, concerns, needs and hopes of girls on the autism spectrum, this much-needed text will provide parents, teachers and other professionals with essential information to help them support and teach autistic girls more effectively.

From EAL experts Chris Pim and Catharine Driver come 100 ideas for providing secondary teachers with strategies and activities to support the induction, assessment and learning of students with English as an additional language (EAL) in tutor time, in specific subjects and at whole-school level. There is so much pressure on teachers to deliver engaging and innovative lessons that both adhere to the demands of the curriculum and get the necessary results. Having to plan lessons, implement strategies and create effective resources for EAL students can be a challenge, and with over 15% of secondary school students exposed to a language other than English in their home (according to 2016 data from the Department for Education), it is a challenge affecting every teacher. This book provides practical plans for giving EAL learners general support, but also includes ideas linked to specific subjects, especially key problem areas such as mathematics and science, to help EAL learners get the most out of lessons. 100 Ideas for Secondary Teachers: Supporting EAL Learners is a treasure trove of adaptable ideas to use for students who are beginners and advanced learners of EAL.

Teaching social sciences covers the teaching of social sciences at Foundation, Intermediate and Senior phase. While the book empowers pre-service teachers to realise the outcomes of the CAPS curriculum, it is not simply a guide to teaching the curriculum. It engages student teachers as reflective professionals required to make decisions as to the priorities and emphases of their teaching approaches in the context in which they find themselves. With the perfect balance of theory and practice, this book equips pre-service teachers with extensive subject knowledge and contemporary teaching techniques to take into their future classrooms. Through the exploration of issues around race, gender, class, xenophobia, the book explores how curriculum can serve to instill in learners the values embedded in the South African constitution and a sense of citizenship while encouraging active engagement and thought. Teaching social sciences conceptualizes the social sciences within the South African context, including teaching methods and principles, how to teach controversial issues, skills-based teaching and source-based teachings, and how learners learn social sciences. There is a practical focus on how to arrange field trips and working with GIS. It also discusses what differentiates being a social sciences teacher and learner from other disciplines, including the qualities of being adaptable, context-sensitive and innovative, while facilitating independent thinking in students. The book covers the use of ICT in teaching social sciences, as well as lesson planning, assessment and classroom management in the social science classroom. The values of Ubuntu and an African-centric contextual and theoretical approach are foregrounded. There is an especial focus on inclusive education and indigenous knowledge systems.
