The puppies - B-Dawg (voice of Cooper Roth), Budderball (Jeremy Shinder), Buddha (Tenzing Trainor), Rosebud (G.

Drawing on the work of researchers in a range of fields including psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics, economics, the health sciences, and mathematics education, this book documents the depth and scope of the primary education crisis and provides a comprehensive and rigorous explanation of its causes.
Primary Education in Crisis pulls together the wealth of research health, poverty, resources, language and teaching as factors in academic achievement, in reading, writing and mathematics. At the centre of the book is an analysis of the published studies that systematically document what teachers teach and fail to teach, and why it is that teaching is at the heart of the crisis in primary education. The author suggests that there are no quick fixes, but only hard choices and that, for reform to succeed, it must be evidence-based.
The Education Triple Cocktail: System-wide Instructional Reform in South Africa brings together rigorous quantitative and qualitative research on a new approach to improving foundational teaching and learning for primary schoolchildren who are being educated in working-class urban areas and rural communities in resource-constrained systems like South Africa.
At the core is the theory and evidence for a powerful new interlocking and mutually reinforcing change model. Inspired by the AIDS treatment story, the approach brings together structured daily lesson plans, high-quality and appropriate educational materials, and one-on-one instructional coaching to help teachers transform their instructional practices in early grade classrooms and thereby improve learning outcomes.
For education systems defined by low levels of early grade learning and profoundly unequal outcomes, The Education Triple Cocktail offers a theoretically informed, evidence-based way forward.

Between 1981 and 1984 Leonard Bernstein recorded nearly all of Brahms´s orchestral works with the Wiener Philharmoniker to honor the 150th anniversary of the composer's birth in 1983. For the concertos, Bernstein enlisted the services of some of the finest Brahms interpreters of the time: the violoninst Gidon Kremer, the cellist Mischa Maisky and the pianist Krystian Zimerman.

them staples of the repertoire--studied, practiced, and performed
by chamber music players everywhere. Musicians and students of
music will be delighted to own all three works in this
single-volume compilation, reprinted from authoritative

Covering a wide range of special educational needs and disabilities this book examines the perspectives of teachers, teaching assistants, children and parents with a focus on specific educational aspects, such as curriculum and pedagogy. Referencing recent policy changes in the special needs and inclusive education context, the book offers an introduction to the special needs and inclusive education field for teachers, SEN Coordinators and other allied professionals (e.g. speech and communication therapists, educational psychologists) as well as parents and policy makers, by: * Examining the lived experience of parents, teachers and children/young people with special educational needs/ disability in education * Illustrating some of their experienced tensions and how they deal with them * Exploring the significance of these experiences for policy and practice The book features 12 engaging case studies that are based on in-depth interviews with parents, teachers or teaching assistants and children or young people, exploring their experiences as regards their education. These accounts emphatically highlight positive models of practice as well as negative practices to avoid. In this way the book contributes to the professional learning of teachers and allied professionals. "A critical part of understanding any complex social phenomenon is to listen (really listen) to the views of the stakeholders - the children and young people, the parents and the professional educators. In this thoughtful book, Brahm Norwich, a leading scholar in the field of Disability and Special Educational Needs, faithfully presents these views through 12 insightful case studies. The stories told are direct and share the tensions, dilemmas, balances and dynamics of life. It is a very thought provoking book and an excellent addition to the field." Dr. Graeme Douglas, Professor of Disability and Special Educational Needs, University of Birmingham, UK "An invaluable book about the importance of getting to know each and every child, comprising up to date case studies that contextualise the experiences of 12 learners identified with special educational needs." Professor Lani Florian, Bell Chair of Education, University of Edinburgh, UK "In the era of person-centred planning, this book is a timely and essential key text for both general and specialist practitioners working for children and young people with special educational needs and/ or disability. The structured case study format provides accessible, comprehensive and detailed insights across a range of ages and types of educational placement. Whilst evidence from the individual experiences of children, their families and teachers are its main substance, the book also draws together case study themes, including advice directly given by parents and teachers to the readers. Professor Norwich is to be highly commended for providing this original, scholarly and useful research to the international field of special education." Professor Kevin Woods, Professor of Educational and Child Psychology, University of Manchester, UK "In his new book of 12 case studies of children and young people with a range of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), Brahm Norwich skilfully presents the perspectives of the young people themselves, their parents, and the teachers and teaching assistants who support them. These careful, illuminating accounts bring to life the realities, complexities, challenges - and also the positive aspects - of the young people themselves and those that care and support them. They remind us all of the importance of seeing each child as an individual. Required reading for all who work with children with SEND." Professor Geoff Lindsay, Centre for Educational Development, Appraisal and Research (CEDAR), University of Warwick, UK
Children with mild to moderate learning difficulties (MLD) make up
the largest sub-group of children requiring special educational
needs, and yet they are often neglected in terms of research and in
their influence on future Government policy directions. The authors
of this book, developed out of a Nuffield Foundation research
project, have listened to and considered the perspectives of
children with moderate learning difficulties in relation to:
