Available Now. "Book Description: Within the education system in Northern Ireland, the Christian churches, through a religiously segregated schooling system, have enjoyed a virtually unchallenged role in the moral education of both communities. On many social issues relating to a denominational education, there exist two definitive moral systems at work. In Northern Ireland, with its strong tribal traditions and cultural identities, these differences may come to be celebrated as representing a code of conduct or ethics that enshrine the true faiths and beliefs of the respective communities. This book is primarily concerned with the problem of moral ambiguity, ambivalence and duplicity in Northern Irish society, and the role of schools in countering this. It argues for an understanding and acceptance of the necessity for non-partisan initiatives in moral education in Ulster schools, and seeks to present some ideas on the nature of moral education in this context."

Achieving Schooling for All in Africa: Costs Commitment and Gender, Colclough, Christopher

Achieving Schooling for All in Africa: Costs Commitment and Gender
UK Ashgate Publishing Limited
2003 0754638073 / 9780754638070 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Condition 2.5 x 16.5 x 23.5 cm 
Available Now. "Book Description: With the focus on Sub-Saharan Africa, the authors analyse the causes of the decline in primary school enrolment and the practical ways in which this can change. To date, this area has the lowest primary enrolments of any major region in the developing world and the number of children out of school is increasing faster in SSA than elsewhere. At present they comprise about 35 per cent of the world's total, but African children will account for more than half of those not enrolled by the year 2010. A majority of them are girls. This is a timely study when the Millennium Development Goals, adopted by the international community to tackle problems of poverty in developing countries by the year 2015, have identified universal participation and gender equality in primary schooling as major goals. This comprehensive book incorporates the results of research conducted at both macro and micro levels, using a range of methodologies. In order to explain national differences in school enrolments, the authors begin by focuses upon regional and international comparisons, using both cross-section and household survey data for a large number of countries, including those outside SSA. The book then moves on to examine the causes of under-enrolment in a more micro context, utilising results from a major international research programme on gender and primary schooling in Africa. This has comprised a set of country studies, using the same research methodology. Nine countries in SSA - Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Malawi, Mali, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia - have been included over the past five years, since 1998. The causes of past performance and new strategies for educational expansion and reform are examined for each of these cases. Later chapters examine the disappointing aid record for education during the 1990s. The challenges for international aid to provide resources and help secure reforms in support of the international development goals in education are also outlined."

African American Feminisms 1828-1923. 6 VOLUME SET., Zackodnik, Edited by Teresa

African American Feminisms 1828-1923. 6 VOLUME SET.
UK Routledge
2007 0415395372 / 9780415395373 First Edition Hardcover New 26 x 21 x 25.4 cm 
The black women's club movement is frequently seen as definitive of "first-wave" African American feminism. However, this six-volume collection from the History of Feminism series draws together key documents that show the varied political work African American feminists were undertaking well before the turn into the 20th century. African American Feminisms brings together writings that document distinctly African American feminist organizing from as early as the late 1820s through female benevolent and literary societies, as well as writings that document African American feminist participation in black political concerns such as emigration and colonization, discrimination in public transportation, and anti-lynching. African American women also negotiated competing demands within interracial reform movements like abolition, woman's rights, temperance and suffrage, as well as within organizations like the black church, making documents that offer insight into those unique demands key to understanding black feminist arguments and rhetoric. Pursuing a varied feminist rhetoric that ranged from advocating domestic and maternal feminism to defending black womanhood, African American feminists focused on larger social reforms as well as agitating for material changes in the lives of African American women and girls. African American feminists were also keenly attuned to opening useful venues to black feminist voices, from the pulpit to the press, and urged the women that followed them to continue this work. This collection, which includes a variety of genres from the spiritual autobiography to the platform speech and the pamphlet, goes beyond the more common focus on the "greats" of black feminism to include lesser known black feminists and some unidentified women who contributed to black feminist debate on a variety of topics. African American Feminisms, edited and with an introduction by Teresa Zackodnik, is destined to be welcomed by those interested in women's studies, feminism, and African American history as an invaluable reference resource.

Available Now. "Book Description: This text is based extensively on research carried out by a small team of researchers on aspects of educational policy and provision in Northern Ireland. The research was funded by the Standing Advisory Commission on Human Rights (a Northern Ireland statutory body) and over the 1988-1992 period. The research was completed in January 1992. The work is concerned with the development and characteristics of the segregated school systems in Northern Ireland, and in particular, the extent to which public policy has treated the two systems equitably. In addition, the growth of the integrated education sector (schools with Protestant and Catholic pupils) is examined and a major assessment of parental attitudes is made. While the bulk of this text is concerned with the Northern Ireland, comparative material includes Scotland, England and Canada. Many of the issues dealt with have direct implications for the development of public policy towards education in ethnically plural societies." Size: 1.3 x 15.9 x 22.2 cm. 302 pages.

The articles in this volume fall into two main groups, the one dealing with secular learning and especially grammar and logic, the other with biblical scholarship, while the final articles look at the work of particular scholars. Margaret Gibson, however, would see them all as closely interrelated. Scholars in the Latin West, from the end of Antiquity right through the 12th century, were united in the belief that all knowledge, if true, was compatible and that sapientia was one and coherent. In the same way, she would hold, it is impossible to study only the ?artes? given their implication for Bible, nor only Bible, when every commentator thought within the context of the ?artes?. Contents: Preface; The ?Artes? in the 11th century; The collected works of Priscian: the printed editions 1470?1859; The early scholastic glosule to Priscian, Institutiones grammaticae: the text and its influence; Introduction to J.E. Tolson, ?The Summa of Petrus Helias on Priscianus Minor?; Milestones in the study of Priscian, c.800?c.1200; Boethius in the Carolingian schools; Codices Boethiani; Latin commentaries on logic before 1200; The study of the Timaeus in the 11th and 12th centuries; The continuity of learning, c.850?c.1050; Theodore of Mopsuestia: a fragment in the Bodleian Library; Lanfranc?s commentary on the Pauline epistles; Lanfranc?s notes on patristic texts; The 12th-century Glossed Bible; The place of the Glossa ordinaria in medieval exegesis; The Opuscula sacra in the Middle Ages; A picture of Sapientia from S.

Book Description: The effects of the socio-political environment on the self-concept and personal identity of Catholic children in West Belfast and Protestant children of East Belfast are examined in this study. It describes their everyday lives and their attitudes towards themselves and their future in 1981 when there was no end in sight to the politically motivated violence in Northern Ireland. They are compared with children in Dublin and London in 1981 and again in 1992 when there were the beginnings of a move towards peace backed up by other shifts in Northern Ireland society. It was found that East Belfast Protestant children in particular had a pessimistic attitude towards themselves and were less willing to invest in their future in 1981; but in 1992, they were more positive and it looked as though they were reflecting a slowly emerging willingness in their own community to reinterpret their indentity.

288 Pages. Childhood is ideally a time of safety, marked by freedom from the economic, sexual, and political demands that later become part of adult life. For many children, however, particularly those who live in our inner cities, childhood is increasingly a time of danger. In the urban war zones of Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington, D.C., children grow up with firsthand knowledge of terror and violence. This book examines the threat to childhood development posed by living amid chronic community violence. Most importantly, it shows caregiving adults such as teachers, psychologists, social workers, and counselors how they can work together to help children while they are still children before they become angry, aggressive adults.

Even better, it′s a road map for school administrators and teachers on what they can do to help these children deal with the chronic violence in their lives." --Bill Harris, founder, KidsPac, a political action committee for children : "This valuable book offers insight and guidance to the professional who must help children cope with the cruel challenge of violence and death in their daily lives." --Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology, Yale University : "[Children in Danger] is such a compelling account of the ways in which children are affected by living in communities where danger and violence are a way of life, that one hopes it will be read by policymakers at all levels of government who are concerned about the fate of an ever-growing number of children in our society." --Contemporary Psychology : About the Author: JAMES GARBARINO is co-director of the Family Life Development Center and professor of human development at Cornell University.

In view of the increasing number of Third World countries considering the establishment of women's colleges to meet the demand for the higher education of women, presenting a case study of two key women's colleges in the Philippines. Within the context of global, national and local changes since the fall of Ferdinand Marcos in 1986, academic and administrative leaders at two prestigious women's colleges candidly discuss how their respective institutions adapted to their environments and how the colleges will fare in the future.

Available Now. Book Description: Adult learning programmes with a social purpose are the subject of the book. A variety of learning projects which seek to reconstruct society in terms of egalitarian, feminist, religious, pacifist and environmentalist principles, among others, are considered. The focus is on the subjectivity of the participants and on the extent to which their individuality and personal autonomy is respected as socially-committed learning programmes pursue their objectives. This involves a consideration of how programmes declare their objectives, the epistemic and psychological nature of the change they aspire to, the manner in which they legitimate themselves, the associative character of the learning relationships they cultivate and the strategies by which they cope with dysfunctional responses. It is concluded that socially-committed programmes face a dilemma: the more effective their organisation the more the autonomy of participants is threatened, but to incorporate safeguards against invading the individuality of participants would be to dilute their potency as agents of social change. It is recommended that providers and facilitators situate this dilemma in the context of their own biography of commitment and, in the process, develop a disposition of reflexivity.

Available Now. Book Description: Confronting Intolerance: Critical, Responsive Literacy Instruction with Adult Immigrants captures the experience of adult immigrants who are improving their English literacy while confronting an intolerant political culture. It examines recent immigration policy and the anti-immigrant fervor that has gripped the United States and describes the perseverance and struggles of immigrant students to pursue their goals through literacy education. The book offers a powerful and vivid example of critical pedagogy blended with sociocultural perspectives of literacy education in an effort to raise student consciousness and alter the political culture. Confronting Intolerances is an ethnographic, teacher research narrative that describes a year in the life of the author's classroom with adult Latino immigrants, mostly Mexican, in a Chicago, Illinois (USA) settlement house. Specific focus is given to immigrant students' response to reading material that was selected to meet individual ambitions but was also selected to meet the concerns and anxieties that surfaced in response to the intolerant climate. The book describes students' engagement with narrative and informational reading and displays the students' evolving perspectives on politics, economics, culture, and race as these relate to Latino immigrants in the United States. Through extensive classroom dialogue and descriptions of students engaged in political activities, the book explores the students' emerging sense of what it means to become "American" amidst an immigrant backlash. It takes the reader through a year in a settlement house classroom, and reveals the hopes, dreams, and struggles of immigrants who continue to pursue America's promises-those realized and those broken.

Available Now. Book Description: This is a collection of nine case studies of teachers and young learners in countries as widely separated as USA, Japan and Australia. In each chapter, classroom interaction is interpreted by different authors to illustrate how teachers and their students verbally co-construct culturally appropriate learning attitudes and behaviours. The collection reveals not only similarities and differences across cultural divides, but also how different perspectives can provide alternative and rich interpretations of teaching and learning. : Review: Creating Classroom Communities of Learning presents an innovative and enlightening account of interaction in nine communities of learning. In many ways it is a groundbreaking volume, full of rich transcripts of classroom interaction, with both insider and outsider interpretations. It not only highlights the powerful influence of cultural practices outside the classroom on what goes on inside the classroom, but it also unpacks the issue of the interpretive process. --Peter Martin, School of Education, University of East London: This book reminds us to be wary of unidimensional interpretations of classroom transcript data. It presents alternative interpretations of rich, contextualized data, and invites further re-interpreting in order to develop our understanding of the co-construction of learning and the creation of learning communities. An international group of analysts engage in conversations about classroom interactions that are both unique and familiar. An intriguing, informative read. --Gary Barkhuizen, Department of Applied Language Studies and Linguistics, University of Auckland : About the Author: Roger Barnard is a senior lecturer in applied linguistics at the University of Waikato, New Zealand. He has spent many years working with language teachers of young learners in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Professor Mar?a E.

Book Description: In light of the growing phenomenon of Islamic schools in the United States and Europe, this compelling study outlines whether these schools share similar traits with other religious schools, while posing new challenges to education policy. Merry elaborates an ideal type of islamic philosophy of education in order to examine the specific challenges that Islamic schools face, comparing the different educational realities facing Muslim Populations in the Netherlands, Belgium, and the United States. : Review: 'Especially since 9/11, the West has experienced a desperate need to better understand the Islamic world. In this balanced but critical study, Michael S. Merry tackles the highly controversial issue of identity formation and the education of Muslim children in non-Muslim or even anti-Muslim cultures. In accessible language, Merry articulates the philosophical and political underpinnings of Islamic schooling and then confronts these with the empirical practices of the US, the Netherlands, and Belgium. He not only presents a fully substantiated analysis of the pros and cons of Islamic schooling but also places this analysis within the wider context of the demands and rights of parents, the position of the child, religious education in general, and the obligations of the democratic state for the future of its children. This thought-provoking book is a must for the international audience of educators, policymakers, religious scholars, and philosophers interested in schooling and Islam.' - Geert Driessen, Senior Educational Researcher, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands: 'This book is a critical defense of the possibility of religious schooling, in general, and Islamic schooling, in particular that is consistent with the tenets of multicultural, liberal democracy. It is well written, thoughtful, well argued and timely given the current interest in Islamic education, Muslim immmigration, and tensions between Islam and democratic societies. Since it is largely a philosophical argument about rather perennial tensions between religious schools and liberal democracy, it is likely to have a longer shelf life than more empirical studies.' - Jeffrey A.

When challenges and threats from the immortal world of Nissilum rip the young lovers apart, Jane is bereft. Without Luca's dancing green eyes, and gentle smile, Jane feels lost, sad and alone. But then a trip to Paris with her grandmother thrusts her in the path of the amiable Soren - a kindred spirit who may be just the distraction she needs ... Meanwhile in Nissilum, Luca struggles with the loyalties and expectations that come with being a part of the immortal world. A world that is about to be shaken at its very core: rumblings of mounting unrest are spreading, and with rumours of an angel rebellion growing no creature is safe - especially not a mortal girl who has fallen in love with a wolf boy... : Book Description: Revisit a world of dark romance in this must-read follow up to Dark Heart Forever.: About the Author: Lee Monroe was born in London, but spent a short time living by the sea with her family when she was a teenager.

304 Pages. Helen Heffernan and Corinne Seeds were nationally recognized as leaders of the progressive education movement and were key figures in what was probably the most concerted attempt to put the ideals of progressive education into practice in a state-wide system of public education in the United States. This book examines the struggle over public education in mid-twentieth century America through the lens of a joint biography of these two extraordinary women, Heffernan, the California Commissioner of Rural and Elementary Education between 1926 and 1965, and Seeds, the Director of the University Elementary school at UCLA between 1925 and 1957.

In this work, Weiler spins an impeccably crafted, yet provocative historical analysis of the intertwined lives and works of two powerful women educators of the Progressive Era, Helen Heffernan and Corinne Seeds. I am left with a transformed understanding of how it is that California's public schools came to be among the nation's finest by mid-twentieth century." - Jackie M. Blount, The Ohio State University "Together, Corrine Seeds and Helen Heffernan helped lead the campaign that made California's schools a model for the nation of democratic education. Combining a profound engagement with social theory and exemplary empirical research, Kathleen Weiler's terrific account of the couple and the network of educators with whom they worked illuminates how schools come to protect or challenge gender, class and racial domination. Democracy and Schooling in California is history that speaks to our most pressing questions." - Daniel Perlstein, University of California, Berkeley : Book Description: Examines the struggle over public education in mid-twentieth century America through the lens of a joint biography of these two extraordinary women Size: 15.6 x 2.3 x 24.5 cm. 304 pages.

Available Now. Book Description: This work aims to explain the science of behavioural development, the biological and psychological processes that build an adult from a fertilized egg. It also explores the developmental cooking processes that give rise rise to individuals and considers in turn how these processes have evolved. : Amazon Review: Setting nature up in opposition to nurture makes for great headlines: remember the recent tabloid announcement that the gene for "genius" had been discovered? But the assumption that human qualities must be either innate or acquired makes for confusing debate and downright bad science.: Bateson and Martin set out to explain the "real" picture--and it's one of mind-boggling complexity. If genes equip people with particular personalities, then we are jukeboxes stuffed to bursting with alternative selves just waiting for the right environmental factors for them to flourish. Genes are but the simple rules to life's complex and unpredictable chess-game.: And unpredictable it certainly is. Sometimes, identical twins behave more like each other when they are brought up apart. Genetically linked differences in behaviour can stand out like sore thumbs in one environment, disappear in another. The order in which siblings are born may be the most important influence on their subsequent development.: But if the picture seems confusing, luckily the authors have had the wisdom and imagination to illustrate their account with literary quotations and references that add tremendously to the reader's understanding. After all, they are talking about the same things: that dizzying mix of inherited behaviours and life experiences that we call human character.: Rarely has complex material been rendered so accessible and in so natural and mature a fashion. --Simon Ings : Review: "If you have time to read only one book about human development, read this one" (Jared Diamond, Professor of Physiology at UCLA and Pulitzer Prize Winner): "This thoughtful and engaging book should be on everyone's reading list" (New Scientist): "Refresh your brows with the cool breeze of reason that is Bateson and Martin's overview... fascinating" (Guardian): "At last! In their sane and lucid - and much needed - corrective to the torrent of overblown genetic rhetoric, Patrick Bateson and Paul Martin take the reader on a journey through humanity's seven ages" (Steven Rose): "Bateson and Martin have delivered what others have claimed to provide: a solid, signposted road out of the trench war between nature and nurture" (Marek Kohn Independent) Size: 23.6 x 15.2 x 2.8 cm. 288 pages.

408 Pages. Although computational modeling is now a widespread technique in cognitive science and in psychology, relatively little work in developmental psychology has used this technique. The approach is not entirely new, as a small group of researchers has attempted to create computational accounts of cognitive developmental phenomena since the inception of the technique. It should seem obvious that transition mechanisms -- or how the system progresses from one level of competence to the next -- ought to be the central question for investigation in cognitive developmental psychology. Yet, if one scans the literature of modern developmental studies, it appears that the question has been all but ignored. However, only recently have advances in computational technology enabled the researcher access to fully self-modifying computer languages capable of simulating cognitive change. By the beginning of the 1990s, increasing numbers of researchers in the cognitive sciences were of the opinion that the tools of mathematical modeling and computer simulation make theorizing about transition mechanisms both practical and beneficial -- by using both traditional symbolic computational systems and parallel distributed processing or connectionist approaches. Computational models make it possible to define the processes that lead to a system being transformed under environmental influence from one level of competence observed in children to the next most sophisticated level. By coding computational models into simulations of actual cognitive change, they become tangible entities that are accessible to systematic study. Unfortunately, little of what has been produced has been published in journals or books where many professionals would easily find them. Feeling that developmental psychologists should be exposed to this relatively new approach, a symposium was organized at the biennial meeting of the Society for Research in Child Development. The "cost of entry" was that speakers had to have a running computational model of a documented cognitive transition. Inspired by that conference, this volume is the first collection where each content chapter presents a fully implemented, self-modifying simulation of some aspect of cognitive development. Previous collections have tended to discuss general approaches -- less than fully implemented models -- or non self-modifying models. Along with introductory and review chapters, this volume presents a set of truly "developmental" computational models -- a collection that can inform the interested researcher as well as form the basis for graduate-level courses.

Book Description: This second collection of articles by Pierre Riche is concerned with the cultural history of Western Europe in the early Middle Ages, from the end of Antiquity up to the 11th century. Their particular concern is the history of education, notably intellectual education in the monastic and episcopal schools that existed before the rise of the university. The first papers deal with the transition from the Roman to the medieval period and with the Carolingian renaissance of intellectual activity, and are followed by a section focusing on the works of Gerbert of Aurillac. The following articles study the techniques and theory of teaching, as well as attitudes towards childhood.

Ils concernent particulierement l'histoire de l'education, notamment celle pratiqee dans les ecoles monastiques et episcopales, dont l'existence precedait l'avenement de l'universite. Les premiers essais traitent de la transition entre la periode romaine et le moyen age, et de la renaissance intellectuelle a l'epoque carolingienne; ils sont suivis d'une section se concentrant sur les travaux de Gerbert d'Aurillac. Les articles suivants etudient les techniques et la theorie de l'enseignement, ainsi que les attitudes vis a vis de l'enfance. : About the Author: Pierre Riche, Emerite, Universite de Paris X Nanterre, France Size: 1.9 x 15.9 x 23.5 cm. 304 pages.
