Television and film not only entertain and reflect social change, they may also participate and influence these changes -- the recent success of The Full Monty and Billy Elliot show popular British comedy based on such painful social transformations.Looking at Class brings together film and television practitioners with academic students of cultural and economic change to examine the media representation of the British working class in the twentieth century -- a time of decline for the manual working class when a complex service-based economy emerged. The book covers a large range of genres from documentaries to soaps and shows that complex cultural transitions can be communicated clearly in prose as well as in screen drama.

`This book is timely. [The author] draws on the work of several specialist teachers and sees a strong 'pupil voice' as key to successful inclusion' - Special `This is an excellent addition to the small but growing literature on pupil views....The book focuses on five areas of need (autistic spectrum disorder, visual impairment, specific learning difficulties, hearing impairment and physical disabilities) and examines the challenges of inclusion from the perspective of children and young people themselves. Their views come across powerfully, and perhaps most importantly, they offer clear and practical advice about how teachers and other staff can make schooling a less intimidating and excluding experience....This book is likely to be of particular interest to SENCOs and other colleagues who have interest in, and responsibility for developing pupil participation. It should also be required reading for trainee teachers and learning support staff' - SENCO Update `This book is unique and readable. It has a great deal to offer all settings who are reflecting on the effectiveness of their pupil voice systems' - Special Needs Information Press Developed from the work of specialist teachers in Ealing who have been involved in promoting inclusive practices, this book shows how eliciting the pupil's views and strengthening the pupil voice is an important element in the success of any inclusion project. Covering a wide range of disabilities including Autistic Spectrum Disorders and Specific Learning Difficulties, it includes: o Case-studies o Descriptions of the difficulties encountered by the young o Practical strategies to address these difficulties o Useful resources. Essential for any adult working in an inclusive setting, this fascinating book brings together theory with real practice.

Using a successfully class-tested approach that gives coherence to a broad range of introductory topics, this innovative text provides students with a real-world, big picture view of statistics as well as problem-solving strategies that can be applied to the statistical questions, real data, and examples that they will encounter. Author Nancy Pfenning organizes content around four basic processes of statistics: producing data, displaying and summarizing data, understanding probability, and using probability to perform statistical inference. Within this framework, the book progresses systematically through five basic problem situations involving values of variables (quantitative, categorical, or a blend). As a result, students learn to identify which situation applies and how to choose the correct display, summary, or inference tool or technique. As students gain proficiency in specific statistical techniques, the author also points out connections among topics and techniques. More than 1,000 real-life examples and categorized exercises support the approach, engaging students in practicing and developing a variety of skills.
