This book is designed for English First Additional language student teachers and in-service teachers. It addresses EFAL teaching in both urban and rural contexts. Practical examples with case studies are used to portray issues that reflect the everyday challenges teachers meet in mediating learning and making sure that learners use English proficiently. Issues deemed important for facilitating English as First Additional Language are covered, such as the importance of mother tongue in learning a second language, theories of second language development and acquisition and methodologies for teaching First Additional Language. Student teachers and practicing teachers can explore examples of trialled approaches on how to introduce English to contexts where the teacher is the only source of the language, as the learners dont encounter the language in their daily lives.
"The Starry Night, a painting by Vincent Van Gogh, is the most famous painting for which the subject is the background: the night sky. In this book, Leslie Dikeni, just like Van Gogh, brings to life the voices of the destitute and the silent found in communities around the Kruger National Park as they offer contrasting narratives of their experience with the Park to those of the bureaucracy of the Park and those who have benefited from the flora and fauna of the Kruger National Park." --Dr Lufuno Marwala

From its earliest days, the United States has provided fertile ground for reform movements to flourish. In this volume, twelve eminent historians assess religious and secular reform in America from the eighteenth century to the present day.
The essays offer a mix of general overviews and specific case studies, addressing such topics as radical religion in New England, leisure in antebellum America, Sabbatarianism, the Women's Christian Temperance Union, and Evangelicalism, social reform, and the U.S. welfare state.
Suitable for students, the essays, each based on original research, will also be of interest to researchers and academics working in this area, as well as to all those with an interest in the history of religious and secular reform in America.
In the ever changing information environment of the early 21st century, citizens and journalists alike are eagerly adapting to new technologies. India is no different. The country's communication revolution, in the post-liberalization era, had led to one of the largest media markets in the world. Given the breadth and scope of India's media, there is little meaningful literature available about journalism practices. This book brings together contribution from 21 Indian and global scholars and journalists to write informatively and critically about Indian journalism today. The contributors in this volume focus on the changes in journalism practices within the context of India's long journalism history, socio-economic conditions of the Indian state, and minority politics. The volume is divided into four different sections, each addressing one relevant aspect: history and evolving changes, social media, e-journalism, marginalization, pedagogy, ethics, and public sphere. Underlying the chapters is a focus on how to address and analyze the enormity and precipitous changes taking place in Indian journalism, media technology, and global relations.

Following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, three women - Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Khan-Cullors - came together to form an active response to the systemic racism causing the deaths of so many African-Americans. They simply said: Black Lives Matter; and for that, they were labelled terrorists. In this empowering account of survival, strength and resilience, Patrisse Khan-Cullors and award-winning author and journalist asha bandele recount the personal story that led Patrisse to become a founder of Black Lives Matter, seeking to end the culture that declares Black life expendable. Like the era-defining movement she helped create, this rallying cry demands you do not look away.
