R931 Discovery Miles 9 310 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Written by the lead authors of the C3 Framework, Inquiry-Based Practice in Social Studies Education: Understanding the Inquiry Design Model presents a conceptual base for shaping the classroom experience through inquiry-based teaching and learning. Using their Inquiry Design Model (IDM), the authors present a field-tested approach for ambitious social studies teaching. They do so by providing a detailed account of inquiry's scholarly roots, as well as the rationale for viewing questions, tasks, and sources as inquiry's foundational elements. Based on work done with classroom teachers, university faculty, and state education department personnel, this book encourages readers to transform classrooms into places where inquiry thrives as everyday practice. Both pre-service and in-service teachers are sure to learn strategies for developing the reinforcing elements of IDM, from planning inquiries to communicating conclusions and taking informed action. The curricular and pedagogical examples included make this practical book essential reading for researchers, students of pre-service and in-service methods courses, and professional development programs.

And Action! - Directing Documentaries in the Social Studies Classroom (Paperback): Kathy Swan, Mark Hofer And Action! - Directing Documentaries in the Social Studies Classroom (Paperback)
Kathy Swan, Mark Hofer
R1,017 Discovery Miles 10 170 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

And Action! Directing Documentaries in the Social Studies Classroom provides social studies educators with the background knowledge, conceptual understanding, and tools necessary to design and facilitate classroom documentary projects in the K-12 social studies classroom. The authors have spent more than ten years in classrooms working collaboratively with teachers to design and research classroom documentary projects. Recognizing the challenges of this kind of work, the authors partnered with filmmakers, historians, educational technologists, and classroom teachers with experience in leading documentary projects to refine a production process that more closely mirrors the work of filmmakers. With this book, the authors draw on all of these experiences to assist social studies educators to efficiently and effectively structure and assess documentary projects. Educators will learn ways to transition student learning away from "digital encyclopedia entries" toward a more authentic documentary approach that focuses on disciplined inquiry and the use of evidenced-based arguments.

Raise Your Hand If You Love Horses - Pat Parelli's Journey from Zero to Hero (Paperback): Pat Parelli, Kathy Swan Raise Your Hand If You Love Horses - Pat Parelli's Journey from Zero to Hero (Paperback)

R495 R427 Discovery Miles 4 270 Save R68 (14%) Out of stock

Described as a horseman, raconteur, philosopher, entertainer and educator, Pat Parelli is truly a renaissance man in the universe of horses. "What I teach is so old, it's new," he says. But more importantly, he's brought a systematic, intelligent and savvy way to be with horses to people around the globe. Some of his knowledge and expertise has come easily, some with a high cost.
So, who exactly is Pat Parelli and what drives the man who's become known as the world's foremost proponent of natural horsemanship? Indeed, most people don't realize that he and his wife, Linda, coined this descriptive term used in headlines worldwide. He's the one person who has developed a methodical natural horsemanship program, and over the last 25 years, Pat's mission in life has been to help natural horsemanship evolve from a back-yard phenomenon to a mainstream movement.
Raise Your Hand if You Love Horses chronicles the first 50 years of Pat Parelli's life. From a kid growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area suburbs watching television Westerns to a young bronc rider, and from a typical horse trainer trying to make a living to an internationally renowned figure who has helped hundreds of thousands of people develop a partnership with horses, Pat Parelli has made a long and rewarding journey.
In his book, Pat describes the early experiences that shaped his life and reverently talks about the mentors who've influenced his thinking and helped him become a horseman. He details the struggles he's had to overcome on the long road to success, and explains how he created an unparalleled program to help other people accomplish their goals with horses. Along the way, he fondly portrays the specialhorses who've helped him grow into the extraordinary horseman he has become. Also, the reader gets a glimpse into the future with Pat's vision of where he thinks horsemanship is headed.
Pat is famous for his riveting way of making a point through the moral of a story. This book contains hundreds of Pat Parelli stories, from his earliest remembrances to the fabulous experiences and opportunities he has enjoyed in the last decade. As a bonus filtered throughout the chapters, readers are treated to People's Perspectives on Pat - anecdotes in which Pat's many friends, all well-known and respected in their fields, tell stories about him.
f0Pat Parelli has been able to break through the discipline barrier and touch every aspect of the horse world - English, western, racing, all breeds and activities. It's been his passion to share his hard-learned knowledge with everyone who seeks excellence with horses. His dream and life's work unfold on the pages of this book.
