Die Skilpad se Laaste Traan (Afrikaans, Paperback): Carol Campbell Die Skilpad se Laaste Traan (Afrikaans, Paperback)

Dis 'n donker Karoonag en 'n bebloede vrou hardloop grondpad langs. Iets grusaam het gebeur en Siena weet sy moet by Seekoegat Primere Skool uitkom, daar sal sy veilig wees. Dis baie ver, drie dae met 'n donkiekar en sy is te voet. Hierdie roman vertel die verhaal van Siena, Boetie en Kriekie, wie se lewens sedert kinderdae nou verweef is. Soos wat Siena hardloop ontmoet lesers die mense in haar lewe: Boetie is verwilderd en verwaarloos, altyd besig met kattekwaad. Sy vriendskap met Siena laat hom egter sy selfwaarde besef. Kriekie is 'n wrak. Sy ma is 'n prostituut wat by die stilhouplekke langs die n1 werk en hy het skaars 'n huis. Wanneer sy ma, Dolly, nie terugkom nie, beland hy deur een vrou se goedhartigheid ook by Seekoegat Primere Skool. Die Karooskilpad se simboliese spore kan deur die hele roman gesien word. Siena se pa, 'n karretjiemens, het altyd gese dat 'n skilpad die wysheid van die antieke landskap in hom dra. Daar word geglo dat 'n skilpad slegs een traan in sy leeftyd stort, die oomblik wanneer hy sterf. Die skilpad se laaste traan is bekroonde skrywer Carol Campbell se derde boek oor die Karoo. Soos haar vorige werk fokus sy sterk op sosiale realisme, maar vir die eerste keer is hier ook magiese realisme, so eie aan die mense oor wie sy skryf.

The Tortoise Cried its Only Tear (Paperback): Carol Campbell The Tortoise Cried its Only Tear (Paperback)

It's a black Karoo night and a young woman, covered in blood, is running along a deserted dirt track. A terrible thing has happened and the woman, Siena, has to reach Seekoegat Primary School at the end of the track, the only place she knows that is safe. It's a long way to run, a three-day ride on a donkey cart.

This is the story of Siena, Boetie and Kriekie, whose lives intersect as children and who meet again as adults: Boetie is a boy running wild. Deprived and neglected he is always up to mischief but his friendship with Siena gives him self-worth. Kriekie is a basket case. As the child of a prostitute working the truck-stops along the n1 he has no home. When his mother, Dolly, doesn't come back, a small act of kindness by a woman running a shop at the truck-stop sees him end up at Seekoegat Primary. Plodding steadily through each chapter is the spectre of the ancient Karoo tortoise. Siena's father, Pa, a karretjiemens, reveres the tortoise as a creature that holds within it the wisdom of the ancient landscape and that cries only one tear when it dies. The Tortoise Cried Its Only Tear is award-winning author Carol Campbell's third book on the Karoo.

Like her previous work this story is a piece of social realism but, for the first time, Campbell introduces hints of magical realism - which is very much in keeping with the world view of the people she writes about.

Vyftien jaar lank kruip Muis al weg. En noudat die Karoo so droog is, wil haar man Kapok hul donkiekarretjie in Leeu-Gamka se rigting draai – die een plek wat Muis nooit weer wil sien nie, want dit is hier waar die wrede Miskiet vir haar wag om haar terug te kry.

Maar die duiwel is los in Leeu-Gamka en hulle moet desperaat vlug op hul karretjie. Sonder dokumente wat wys jy bestaan, kan die polisie jou nie veel help nie. In Carol Campbell se senutergende roman word die onsigbare en nomadiese karretjiemense van die Groot-Karoo op spanningsvolle wyse op die voorgrond geplaas.

Discover how high-performing systems shape teaching quality around the world Producing highly skilled and committed teachers is not the work of a single innovative school or the aggregation of heroic individuals who succeed against the odds. In high-performing countries, the opportunities for teachers to learn sophisticated practices and continue to improve are embedded systemically in education policies and practices. Empowered Educators describes how this seemingly magical work is done how a number of forward-thinking educational systems create a coherent set of policies designed to ensure quality teaching in all communities...and how the results are manifested in practice. Spanning three continents and five countries, Empowered Educators examines seven jurisdictions that have worked to develop comprehensive teaching policy systems: Singapore and Finland, the states of New South Wales and Victoria in Australia, the provinces of Alberta and Ontario in Canada, and the province of Shanghai in China. Renowned education expert Linda Darling-Hammond and a team of esteemed scholars offer lessons learned in a number of areas that shape the teaching force and the work of teachers, shedding unprecedented light on areas such as teacher recruitment, preparation, induction and mentoring, professional learning, career and leadership development, and more. * Find out how quality teaching is developed and conducted across the globe * Discover a common set of strategies for developing, supporting, and sustaining the ongoing learning and development of teachers and school leaders * See how high-performing countries successfully recruit and train educators * Understand why the sharing of expertise among teachers and administrators within and across schools is beneficial A fascinating read for researchers, policymakers, administrators, teacher educators, pre-service teachers and leaders, and anyone with an interest in education, this book offers a rare glimpse into the systems that are shaping quality teaching around the world.

Suspenseful, moving novel about the nomadic karretjiemense of the Karoo.

It’s been 15 years of hiding for Muis. Now, with the Karoo veld so dry, Kapok, her man, insists on pointing their donkiekarretjie to Leeu Gamka, the one place Muis never wants to see again. Miskiet is waiting for her there and is going to make her pay for what she did.

Little Witpop is excited. Town means she can watch TV and maybe go to school, while her brother Fansie hopes there will be more food for him and their baby sister, Sponsie. Their return unleashes the devil and has them desperately fleeing. But the police can’t help if you don’t have papers to prove that you were born.

Vividly showing the invisible people of the Great Karoo, Carol Campbell’s thrilling novel brings the nomadic karretjiemense to life.

BEST PRACTICES FROM CANADA'S HIGH-PERFORMING SCHOOL SYSTEMS Empowered Educators in Canada is one volume in a series that explores how high-performing educational systems from around the world achieve strong results. The anchor book, Empowered Educators: How High-Performing Systems Shape Teaching Quality Around the World, is written by Linda Darling-Hammond and colleagues, with contributions from the authors of this volume. Empowered Educators in Canada details the core commonalities that exist across Canada with special emphasis on the localized nature of the systems a hallmark of Canadian education. Canada boasts a highly educated population, and the provinces/territories truly value education as evidenced by the significant proportion of public funds allocated to schooling. Operated by the provinces and territories, participation in kindergarten, primary, and secondary education is close to 100% across the nation. In addition to offering traditional academics, secondary education includes opportunities for students to attend technical and vocational programs. To demonstrate exemplary education systems, the authors examine two top-performing jurisdictions, Alberta and Ontario, which have developed strong supports for teacher development. Canadian teachers are highly qualified, and salary scales in all jurisdictions are typically based on a teacher's level of education and years of experience. While Canada has enjoyed much educational success, the education of First Nations students has historically been one of the country's more controversial and contentious issues. Overall, Canada is a country that is proud of its education system and places a high value on and participation in publicly funded education.

Teacher Learning and Leadership - Of, By, and For Teachers (Paperback): Ann Lieberman, Carol Campbell, Anna Yashkina Teacher Learning and Leadership - Of, By, and For Teachers (Paperback)

Teacher Learning and Leadership asserts that teachers should be put at the center of creating, developing, organizing, implementing, and sharing their own ideas for school change rather than being passive recipients of knowledge from the outside. It argues that there is tremendous potential for the good of students and the professionalization of teaching, when teachers work collaboratively to develop their own and their colleagues' professional knowledge and practices and are supported by school and system leaders, unions and government. The book draws on the groundbreaking work of the Teacher Learning and Leadership Program in Ontario and uses an in-depth case study to illustrate its points. It demonstrates how professional development built around collaboration, teacher leadership, curriculum development, technology and pedagogy can be organized in a way that redistributes control and responsibility to teachers, thereby instilling a genuine sense of pride and accomplishment in their work. This book is a sincere outreach from the authors who advocate for the professional development of, by and for teachers as individuals and, importantly, as a collective profession. The authors argue that projects like the TLLP (a joint initiative between the Ontario Ministry of Education and the Ontario Teachers' Federation) can radically, and positively, transform teachers' knowledge, skills and practices. The book provides an important model for school change led by teachers, rather than experts, in partnership with school and system leaders and is a fascinating read for all those concerned with teaching, teacher development and educational change.
