Since the publication of the 1998 Boyer report: Reinventing Undergraduate Education: a Blueprint for America's Research Universities, inquiry-guided learning has been discussed widely in higher education circles. In fact, it is often summoned as a universal answer for various teaching and learning ills in higher education. However, many institutions adopt inquiry-guided learning even as they are struggling to understand what it really is. With eight institutional case studies drawn from colleges and universities in Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, this volume provides a clear description of inquiry-guided learning based on best practice. It also provides a window into the dynamics of undergraduate education reform using inquiry-guided learning, with a final chapter that compares the eight institutions on key dimensions. It is a resource for institutions attempting undergraduate reform through inquiry-guided learning, for practitioners and scholars of inquiry-guided learning, for instructors seeking good texts for courses on higher education administration, and for administrators seeking to understand and lead undergraduate education reform.

B> Finally there exists a book that addresses grades four through eight exclusively! Beginning in the intermediate grade years and continuing on through the middle grades both the nature of literacy concerns and the nature of students change dramatically. It is at this time that school textbooks and other literacy tasks expand and broaden, so too do the development concerns for young adolescents. Promoting Literacy in the Intermediate and Middle Grades is designed as a reference for pre-service and practicing classroom teachers in all subject areas of these grade spans as they take on increased responsibility for introducing, developing and maintaining literacy skills and abilities as well as establishing and maintaining classroom climates that promote and nurture students' literacy. Promoting Literacy in the Intermediate and Middle Grades provides up-to-date research on a wide range of literacy concerns and then translates that research into practice through a series of chapters that focus on specific literacy issues. The text covers a wide range of topics of interest, from the role of the principal and what makes an effective literacy program, to specific characteristics of this age group (who they are) to instructional strategies for meeting their needs in the classroom (how to teach them). Well-known experts from the field of literacy education and intermediate and middle grades education have contributed chapters in their areas of expertise. The chapters are short, yet comprehensive, are reader friendly and reflect the most current thinking in the field. Most of the chapters include easy to follow sample lessons and classroom or school applications. This book is encyclopedic in nature, in that it contains a broad spectrum of topics that can be read cover to cover or used as a reference guide on issues of particular interest. For anyone interested in intermediate and middle school

The Oxford Handbook of Behavioral Emergencies and Crises

The Oxford Handbook of Behavioral Emergencies and Crises includes the most up-to-date and valuable research on the evaluation and management of the most challenging patients or clients faced by mental health providers-individuals who are at high risk of suicide, of other-directed violence, or of becoming the victims of interpersonal violence. These are cases in which the outcome can be serious injury or death, and there can be negative consequences not only for the patient, but also for the patient's family and friends, for the assessing or treating clinician, and for the patient's clinic or medical center. Virtually all mental health clinicians with an active caseload will see individuals with such issues. This Handbook is comprised of chapters by leading clinicians, researchers, and scholars in this area of practice. It presents a framework for learning the skills needed for assessing and working competently with such high-risk individuals. Chapters draw a distinction between behavioral emergencies and crises, and between emergency intervention and crisis intervention. The book examines the inter-related aspects of the major behavioral emergencies; that is, for example, the degree to which interpersonal victimization may lead an individual on a pathway to later suicidal or violent behavior, or the degree to which suicidal individuals and violent individuals may share certain cognitive characteristics. This resource is not simply a knowledge base for behavioral emergencies; it also presents a method for reducing stress and acquiring skills in working with high-risk people.

Bis in die jüngste Vergangenheit blieb uns der Zugang zu vielen der interessanten Aspekte des Denkens von Kindern verwehrt. Philosophen haben sich Jahrhunderte lang darum gestritten, ob Säuglinge die Welt als "strahlendes und dröhnendes Durcheinander" sehen oder ganz ähnlich wie ältere Kinder und Erwachsene. Erst mit der Entwicklung aufschlußreicher experimenteller Methoden in den vergangenen Jahren wurde die Antwort deutlich. Sogar Neugeborene sehen bestimmte Aspekte der Welt recht klar und mit 6 Monaten ähnelt die Wahrnehmung von Säuglingen der von Erwachsenen. Dies und andere Erkenntnisse über das Denken von Kindern sind Gegenstand dieses Buches.
