Do street children go to school, and if not, why not? What kind of education can be 'meaningful' to young people affected by conflict? The contributors explore groups of children and young people who have no, or very limited, educational opportunities in various contexts, including Vietnam, Ukraine, the UK, the USA, and India. They explore a number of educational initiatives that have contributed to improving the lives of disadvantaged children, drawing on the perceptions and experiences of disadvantaged children and young people themselves. Each chapter contains contemporary questions to encourage active engagement with the material and an annotated list of suggested reading to support further exploration.

This concise and up to date text looks specifically at children’s learning through movement and the implications of this understanding for practice in early years settings. Movement is a fundamental way in which children learn, so it is vital that early years students and practitioners have a full knowledge of the subject in order to encourage and provide a range of sensory opportunities for the children in their care. The book begins by identifying early movements, examining their links to the brain and the benefits they bring. It looks at how to create movement spaces and opportunities within provision to support key learnings and then moves on to investigate two key issues: supporting children’s early writing and the different ways boys and girls learn through movement. Each chapter includes key messages, case studies to contextualise the issues and reflective questions to promote deeper understanding.

Recent developments in electronic structure theory have led to a new understanding of magnetic materials at the microscopic level. This enables a truly first-principles approach to investigations of technologically important magnetic materials. Among the advances treated here have been practical schemes for handling non-collinear magnetic systems, including relativity, and an understanding of the origins and role of orbital magnetism within band structure formalisms. This book provides deep theoretical insight into magnetism, mahneatic materials, and magnetic systems. It covers these recent developments with review articles by some of the main originators of these developments.

A Simple Guide to the Immigration Laws of the United States

As far back as the early days of colonization, the United States of America was built largely by immigrants who continue to be a contributing presence in the country today. For those fortunate enough to be born in the USA – which immediately grants them U.S. citizenship -- it may be difficult to fully grasp the realities of life immigrants face on a daily basis. Leaving family, friends, and their birthplace behind is a huge sacrifice for people coming to America in search of a better life. Being unfamiliar with the language, customs, traditions, federal/state regulations and immigration laws can be terribly frightening and overwhelming. Some people are successful in their venture for a new and better life, and some make many mistakes along the way. When in doubt, or when you need assistance, you should always seek the help of a competent, knowledgeable U.S. immigration attorney. Therefore, this book is intended to better prepare you when asking probing questions to your attorney or another legal immigration adviser. A Simple Guide to the Immigration Laws of the United States should not be used as legal advice because each factual situation is different. And unless they’re a qualified, knowledgeable attorney, we recommend that you do not rely on friends or family as they may ill advise you on U.S. immigration matters. Many people, like Savie and myself, come to the United States seeking the American dream. They immigrate to improve their lifestyle, get a better education, and to increase their wealth (just to name a few desires), all of which can be obtained with a lot of hard work and assistance of those in their new country. It is our hope that by reading this guide you’ll have a better understanding of what it’s like to be an immigrant in America, and what it takes to become a U.S. citizen.

From the Appalachians to the Atlantic, South Carolina’s awe-inspiring beauty is revealed in this visually stirring and heart-warming tribute to one of America’s favorite vacation destinations. Rich with more than 250 stunning photographs, this second volume of Reflections of South Carolina uncovers the geological, natural, and cultural grandeur the Palmetto State packs into 32,000 square miles. A foreword by New York Times best-selling author Mary Alice Monroe complements the photographs and text. In a landscape abundant with waterfalls, rivers, lakes, and surf, South Carolina overflows with flora and fauna, as well as astonishing vistas. On their new journey, photographer Robert C. Clark and writer Tom Poland set out on a path of discovery that reveals charming country stores, water-powered gristmills, enchanting meadows, and extraordinary people and places. From angles high and low, this keepsake book illuminates the state’s summits, swamps, shores, and islands that brim with life, beauty, and culture. Turn the pages and explore the mountain majesties, fruited plain, and shining sea—South Carolina holds so much of what makes this country “America the Beautiful.” Reflections of South Carolina, Volume 2 documents the state’s surprising variety as well. In August you can stand atop Sassafras Mountain and feel fall’s chill or walk Charleston’s cobblestone streets in shorts in the middle of February. Clark and Poland advise visitors and residents alike to take their time exploring South Carolina and whenever possible to take the road less trodden—for the next turn might reveal a slave chapel, a farmer peddling honey and tomatoes, a mountain’s reflection in a sparkling lake, or a peach orchard exploding pink. What could be next? A praise house? An unforgettable character? Art on an abandoned boat? Discovery makes a great companion.
