"Participation? Of course we do - every Wednesday without fail..." · What is participation? · What's the difference between 'adult-led' and 'child-led' participation? · And do we really need to do it at all? This second edition of The Busker's Guide to Participation sets out to help us understand our values and reasons for undertaking participation with children and young people. It shows us what authentic participation really looks like, helping us to get to grips with the ways we can positively support, interact, engage, include, involve and communicate with children and young people on all levels. Learn how to move away from simply 'doing' participation for participation's sake, and start to see participation as a 'way of being' for the benefit of everyone involved.

"Inclusion? I don't think we could cope." - What is inclusion? - What isn't inclusion? - Why is inclusion important for "all "children? - And how do we go about making it happen? The Busker's Guide to Inclusion explores what inclusion "really" means in a lively and down-to-earth way. It begins with some of the pitfalls to be avoided and identifies some important principles for good practice. It clearly demonstrates how these principles are equally applicable to working with every child, and how we can shift from seeing some children as 'special' to developing settings in which all children feel they truly belong.

Named by Newsweek magazine to its list of "Fifty Books for Our Time." For sixteen years William Whyte walked the streets of New York and other major cities. With a group of young observers, camera and notebook in hand, he conducted pioneering studies of street life, pedestrian behavior, and city dynamics. City: Rediscovering the Center is the result of that research, a humane, often amusing view of what is staggeringly obvious about the urban environment but seemingly invisible to those responsible for planning it. Whyte uses time-lapse photography to chart the anatomy of metropolitan congestion. Why is traffic so badly distributed on city streets? Why do New Yorkers walk so fast—and jaywalk so incorrigibly? Why aren't there more collisions on the busiest walkways? Why do people who stop to talk gravitate to the center of the pedestrian traffic stream? Why do places designed primarily for security actually worsen it? Why are public restrooms disappearing? "The city is full of vexations," Whyte avers: "Steps too steep; doors too tough to open; ledges you cannot sit on. . . . It is difficult to design an urban space so maladroitly that people will not use it, but there are many such spaces." Yet Whyte finds encouragement in the widespread rediscovery of the city center. The future is not in the suburbs, he believes, but in that center. Like a Greek agora, the city must reassert its most ancient function as a place where people come together face-to-face.
