Research Handbook on Fundamental Concepts of Environmental Law (Hardcover): Douglas Fisher Research Handbook on Fundamental Concepts of Environmental Law (Hardcover)
Douglas Fisher
R3,980 Discovery Miles 39 800 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The quality and the strength of an environmental legal system is a reflection of the conceptual foundations upon which it is constructed. The Research Handbook on Fundamental Concepts of Environmental Law illuminates key aspects of environmental governance through the lens of their underlying dimensions: for example, the form, structure and language of international, regional and national instruments; the function of norms, objectives and standards; and the relevance of economic analysis and of integrated policy formulation. The topical chapters in this timely Handbook include analyses of human rights, constitutional rights, property rights, sustainable development, environmental impact assessment and precaution. Perceptive contributions examine the emerging roles played by various concepts, values and objectives in environmental governance. The nature of these emerging concepts and their relationship with traditional rights and duties, which are typically reactive in nature, is of particular significance. The concepts examined go to the heart of environmental law: the capacity of a system of environmental governance to be judicially recognized and enforced. This insightful Handbook will be a valuable resource for all students and researchers in environmental law and governance. It will be essential reading for policymakers, legal drafters and anyone needing to understand the foundations of the modern environmental legal system.

Legal Reasoning in Environmental Law - A Study of Structure, Form and Language (Hardcover): Douglas Fisher Legal Reasoning in Environmental Law - A Study of Structure, Form and Language (Hardcover)
Douglas Fisher
R2,791 Discovery Miles 27 910 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Legal Reasoning in Environmental Law provides a comprehensive review and analysis of the range of legal reasoning processes to support the understanding, interpretation and application of international, regional and national rules of environmental law. The book considers how rules for environmental governance are designed to accommodate the various competing interests within each of the private and public sectors and also between the two sectors. The author then examines how decisions in particular cases reflect the sources of these rules together with their form, structure and language. He exposes the ways in which reliance upon an extensive range of legal reasoning processes are used to justify the particular decision by interpreting and applying these rules to the case in question. Much has been written about legal reasoning and about environmental law but relatively little about the relationship between the two. This book will strongly appeal to legal scholars for its analysis of intellectual processes, and to legal practitioners for its exposition of how decisions are made.

The Law and Governance of Water Resources - The Challenge of Sustainability (Hardcover): Douglas Fisher The Law and Governance of Water Resources - The Challenge of Sustainability (Hardcover)
Douglas Fisher
R2,719 Discovery Miles 27 190 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This path-breaking book focuses on the law and legal doctrine within the wider policy context of water resources and analyses the concept of sustainability. To achieve the sustainable use and development of water resources is a daunting challenge for both global and local communities. It requires commitments from all groups within international, national and local communities from their own particular, possibly conflicting, perspectives. Without a set of coherent legal arrangements designed to ensure effective governance of water resources, their sustainable use and development is unlikely to be achieved. Douglas Fisher considers how legal arrangements for managing water resources have evolved across the continents over hundreds of years. He explores their relevance for contemporary society; how the norms of current international and national legal regimes are responding; and, most importantly, how legal rights and duties should be structured so as to achieve sustainability in the future. This detailed textual and linguistic analysis of legal doctrines and instruments in relation to water resources will be invaluable for international and national water resources policy analysts, water resource managers and water resource lawyers. Students of water resource management, sustainable development and sustainability will also find this book of great interest to them.

Challenging the Classroom Standard Through Museum-based Education - School in the Park (Hardcover): Ian Pumpian, Douglas... Challenging the Classroom Standard Through Museum-based Education - School in the Park (Hardcover)
Ian Pumpian, Douglas Fisher, Susan Wachowiak
R1,771 Discovery Miles 17 710 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

School in the Park is an innovative museum-based educational effort to engage students in their community during the school day. Since 1999 several hundred students have been educated each year in museums and the zoo in San Diego. This is more than a field trip, it is changing the way that education is provided. Challenging the Classroom Standard Through Museum-Based Education: School in the Park presents the experience of School in the Park from the perspective of different disciplines--oral language, reading, writing, social studies, math, science, and the arts--to determine how students are learning content within museums and the zoo. It provides a number of examples, case studies, references, scenarios, and recommendations for teaching and learning outside of the traditional classroom. The perspectives of teachers, museum educators, and students are represented. Importantly, this book offers ideas that readers can use in their own communities, ranging from long-term partnering with cultural institutions to one-day trips, to ensure that students have authentic experiences with the curriculum. With the current increased focus on accountability and achievement, less attention and importance is given to community-based learning experiences. This book demonstrates the viability of merging formal and informal learning and using community venues as an extension of the classroom. All those interested in and charged with educating children will find this book useful in exploring powerful learning experiences that occur outside traditional classroom settings.

Implementing RTI with English Learners (Paperback): Douglas Fisher, Nancy Fewy Implementing RTI with English Learners (Paperback)
Douglas Fisher, Nancy Fewy
R560 R435 Discovery Miles 4 350 Save R125 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This book starts from the premise that in today's schools, with their rapidly growing populations of English learners, all teachers must be teachers of language. But how can elementary or content-area teachers who are not language specialists assume this role? Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and Carol Rothenberg present an approach that every teacher can use to ensure that English learners access the core curriculum and achieve at high levels.

The approach is based on the Response to Intervention (RTI) model, which enables teachers to identify and support students' diverse learning needs. The authors show that RTI is the ideal framework for teaching English learners, who come to school with widely varying backgrounds and skills. These students will almost certainly need extra support, as they are faced with learning language and content simultaneously. But some prove to need more intensive interventions, and the RTI model helps teachers determine when that is the case and what level of support is required to give students the chance to succeed.

If a student does not improve in response to progressively intensive interventions, the next step is to test the student for learning disabilities. Determining whether an English learner has a learning disability is particularly challenging, and this book offers clear guidelines for distinguishing between lack of language proficiency and learning disability.

To illustrate the entire RTI process, and to show its effectiveness with the broad range of English learners that schools are asked to serve, the book provides numerous classroom examples and focuses on four representative students. Readers will follow these students who are of different ages, come from different countries, and have attained different levels of language proficiency throughout the book as they work with the teachers who are committed to their success.

Through these stories, it becomes clear that teachers who are using RTI to support EL students should themselves be relying on the support of their colleagues in a professional learning community. The authors situate their examples in a PLC context and share vivid dialogue from team meetings in which teachers discuss their students, work out the best ways to help them overcome their difficulties, and share their successes.

Common Core English Language Arts in a Plc at Worktm, Grades K-2 (Paperback): Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey Common Core English Language Arts in a Plc at Worktm, Grades K-2 (Paperback)
Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey
R654 R579 Discovery Miles 5 790 Save R75 (11%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are part of a decades-long state-led initiative to establish the fundamental educational learning targets that ensure all students are college and career ready in the 21st century. Common Core English Language Arts in a PLC at Work, Grades K 2 provides strategies and tips for K 2 teachers to integrate the Common Core State Standards for English language arts in their instruction, curriculum, assessment, and intervention practices. Additionally, authors Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey detail how to implement the CCSS within a powerful collaborative model: Professional Learning Communities at Work (PLCs). Using critical chapter-opening questions to guide the discussion, the authors effectively demonstrate how K 2 teachers can use the CCSS to optimize student learning.

Chapter 1 highlights the history of the CCSS and traditional teaching practices. Chapter 2 illustrates how to focus on reading how to analyze the Reading standards, examine and assess texts, and use foundational instructional strategies. Chapter 3 discusses instructional techniques to implement the Writing standards in regard to the three major writing types: narrative, informational, and persuasive. Chapter 4 explores how to implement the Speaking and Listening standards and the Language standards in regard to producing and understanding academic language and vocabulary. Chapter 5 analyzes the use of high-quality formative and summative assessments and interventions and provides examples.

Common Core English Language Arts in a PLC at Work defines five essential shifts in literacy instruction, how the CCSS reflect these changes, and the implications for teaching and learning: (1) using reading and writing to inform, persuade, and convey experiences; (2) increasing text complexity; (3) emphasizing speaking and listening; (4) using text-based evidence for argumentation; and (5) focusing on academic vocabulary and language. Using specific K 2 examples and scenarios, this straightforward resource provides the what and how for students to master the standards. The authors suggest readers discuss two critical questions to develop collaborative growth around CCSS implementation: (1) What is the PLC status in your school or district and (2) How are students performing? These questions will help collaborative teams gain insight into where they are and where they need to go to effectively support students' language development.

Professional development embedded within the PLC culture is vital to successfully implementing the CCSS. This comprehensive resource is a must-read for all K 2 teachers looking to prepare their students for 21st century lives.

The European Macroeconomy - Growth, Integration and Cycles 1500-1913 (Paperback, New edition): Lee A. Craig, Douglas Fisher The European Macroeconomy - Growth, Integration and Cycles 1500-1913 (Paperback, New edition)
Lee A. Craig, Douglas Fisher
R870 Discovery Miles 8 700 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This comprehensive and far-reaching book describes the growth and economic integration of the European economy from 1500 to 1913. The authors apply macroeconomic techniques to identify growth rates, inflation, product markets, trade networks and business cycles across a set of countries over the period. The book demonstrates that growth was the natural state for European economies throughout the period although, under the impetus of the industrial revolution, growth rates generally accelerated by the end of the nineteenth century. Similarly, business cycles in the modern sense seem to have been in evidence at the beginning of the period but by the eighteenth century there is no doubt that modern cycles affected these countries, sometimes simultaneously. Inflationary episodes are both distinct and shared in this long period, with the long inflation of the sixteenth century attesting to the integration of European markets. Finally, the authors find abundant quantitative evidence to support the argument that economies linked by international trade in 1500 came close to achieving global integration by 1913. The European Macroeconomy will be of interest to scholars of economic history, international economics and macroeconomics.
