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.
Another instalment from the Disney film series following the adventures of a family of talking dogs known as the Buddies. The puppies - B-Dawg (voice of Cooper Roth), Budderball (Jeremy Shinder), Buddha (Tenzing Trainor), Rosebud (G.

With their new skills, it is up to the quintet to save the day when an evil extraterrestrial being wreaks havoc on the planet.
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.

the bestselling author of "Who Ordered This Truckload of Dung?"
Fifth adventure in Disney's popular Buddies series. This time the five puppies come across a spooky mansion on Halloween and discover that evil duo Howloween Hound and Warwick the Warlock (Harland Williams) are planning to take over the world. It is up to the puppies and the new friends they make along the way to save the day.
The 108 pieces in the international bestseller "Who Ordered This
Truckload of Dung?" offer thoughtful commentary on everything from
love and commitment to fear and pain. Drawing from his own life
experience, as well as traditional Buddhist folk tales, author
Ajahn Brahm uses over thirty years of spiritual growth as a monk to
spin delightful tales that can be enjoyed in silence or read aloud
to friends and family.
In times of uncertainty, words of comfort are essential, and the stunning overseas sales of this title are testament to its universal appeal. These modern tales of hope, forgiveness, freedom from fear and overcoming pain cleverly relate the timeless wisdom of the Buddha's teachings and the path to true happiness in a warm and accessible way. Ajahn Brahm was born and raised in the West and in his more than thirty years as a Buddhist monk he has gathered many poignant, funny and profound stories. He has tremendous ability to filter these stories through the Buddha's teaching so that they can have meaning for all sorts of readers. There are many thousands of Australians who don't even know that they need this book yet, but who will no doubt embrace it just as overseas readers have. It is the perfect gift book as there is truly something in it for everyone.

project, have listened to and considered the perspectives of
children with moderate learning difficulties in relation to:
