At a time when pornography is more accessible than ever and many young people are inadvisably turning to pornography to learn about sex and relationships, this book explores what pornography is, the politics behind pornography, how it can affect both sexual and non-sexual relationships and the effects of pornography on mental health. The book also covers the important wider topics of the making and sharing of inappropriate images and over exposure to porn contributing to what is becoming known as 'rape culture'. It includes full lesson plans, activities, photocopiable materials and clear information on how to implement the programme, including outlines for staff CPD sessions and parent workshops. This book will be vital for PSHE teachers, senior leadership teams, pastoral care teams, school counsellors, youth workers, school nurses, and anyone who might be involved in sex education provision for young people.

Gender, Class, and the Professionalization of Russian City Teachers, 1860-1914 (Paperback): Christine Ruane Gender, Class, and the Professionalization of Russian City Teachers, 1860-1914 (Paperback)
Christine Ruane
R805 Discovery Miles 8 050 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Christine Ruane examines the issues of gender and class in the teaching profession of late imperial Russia, at a time when the vocation was becoming increasingly feminized in a zealously patriarchal society. Teaching was the first profession open to women in the 1870s, and by the end of the century almost half of all Russian teachers were female. Yet the notion that mothers had a natural affinity for teaching was paradoxically matched by formal and informal bans against married women in the classroom. Ruane reveals not only the patriarchal rationale but also how women teachers viewed their public roles and worked to reverse the marriage ban. Ruane's research and insightful analysis broadens our knowledge of an emerging professional class, especially newly educated and emancipated women, during Russia's transition to a more modern society.

Meeting the Needs of Nontraditional Undergraduate Students (Hardcover): Stephanie Babb Meeting the Needs of Nontraditional Undergraduate Students (Hardcover)
Stephanie Babb
R4,007 Discovery Miles 40 070 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Nontraditional students are the fastest-growing population of college undergraduates and range from a variety of definitions including first-generation students or veterans, individuals 25 years or older, single parents, part-time college students, independently financed individuals, or even full-time working individuals attending college at the same time. Compared with traditional students, who typically live on campus and enroll in college immediately after finishing high school, nontraditional students face a variety of challenges being enrolled in a system that is geared towards traditional students. These nontraditional characteristics can create barriers and a rift between personal responsibilities, such as family, work, culture, or finance, and the student's education. However, the outlook for nontraditional students is not always bleak. Nontraditional students also possess characteristics that make them more likely to succeed when compared with traditional students. These students can display less academic entitlement and higher levels of mental health resilience, having dealt with "real-world" life experiences that can create a mature and successful student such as prior work experience or caring for a family. This book will impact the field of adult higher education and nontraditional students by advancing and further honing already identified differences between nontraditional and traditional students. Further study is needed to truly comprehend this population's needs and challenges, and to develop and implement institutional-level changes to reduce their rate of attrition and increase their academic success. This publication of original research and a comprehensive book on adult education will absolutely benefit the student population at minority- and Hispanic-serving institutions, as well as institutions with a large proportion of nontraditional students. This book is a tool to address these students' requirements to meet their educational goals.

Blaine A. Brownell
R1,456 Discovery Miles 14 560 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Washington and Lee University, 1930- 2000 tells the history of one of the nation's oldest colleges as it evolved to face changes in higher education and in American society. In the early part of the twentieth century, Washington and Lee was a small, all-male institution known for its conservative inclinations, coats and ties, social life dominated by fraternities, and venerable honor system run exclusively by students. In the seven decades after 1930, the university confronted economic depression and world war, and faced the challenges and opportunities posed by subsidized athletics, integration, changing student customs and attitudes, new emphases in higher education, and the controversial move to coeducation. Each of the presidents who led the university during this era encouraged Washington and Lee to adapt to new demands while retaining its core traditions and identity. The alma mater of three United States Supreme Court justices, over a hundred members of congress and state governors, and winners of the Pulitzer, Nobel, Tony, and Emmy awards, Washington and Lee University receives a full and complex depiction in this authoritative history.

Transformation of the University imagines preferable futures for the University, building hope for the institution's necessary transformation. It transcends old criticism and presents fresh ideas on how the institution might be conceived, organized, and put into practice while safeguarding that which makes it a university - the pursuit of knowledge. This book is divided into three main parts: Part One - 'Knowledge' assumes the role of the University in generating knowledge for the benefit of society; Part Two - 'Cultural Growth' expands on how the University might contribute to and benefit from the cultural growth of society, with both explicit and implicit connections to social justice; and Part Three - 'Institutions' focuses on imaginative processes for enacting a University as an institution that meets the unforeseen challenges facing society. With contributions from scholars across the world, Transformation of the University is an essential read for all academics, practitioners, and broad social thinkers who are concerned with the future of the University and its contributions to society.

From an Ivy League dean and a college admissions expert, a guide to help parents support their children as they navigate their way to college The College Conversation is a comprehensive resource for mapping the path through the college application process that provides practical advice and reassurance to keep both anxious parents and confused children sane and grounded. Rather than adding to the existing canon of "How to Get In" college guides or rankings, Eric Furda and Jacques Steinberg provide a step-by-step approach to having the tough conversations on this topic with less stress and more success. The book is organized around key discussions and themes that trace the chronological arc of admissions and financial aid--beginning before the assembly of a list of potential colleges and continuing through the receipt of decisions--with a final section that includes advice on the first year of college. The topics include preliminary conversations about the search, and specifically how parents can think about their children's interests and what kind of college would best suit them; choosing a college (based on its curriculum, culture, and community); writing the most effective essays; assessing acceptances, including considerations of finances and aid; and making the transition from high school to college life. The College Conversation will provide parents, students, and counselors with the credible, level-headed information often missing in this process, as well as a much-needed dash of perspective borne of experience.

The JumpStart series supplies the context and prepares students to apply the rules in a litigation context. Titles in the series can be used as a general introduction to law school or as an introduction to torts. The books are most useful early in the first semester as well as in orientation courses or as summer reading for students entering their first year of law school. The series will appeal to academic success/support coordinators as well as the course-area professors.

In schools, every day is ""game day."" Every day, teachers need the best resources and forms of support because students deserve the best we as educators can offer. An instructional playbook aims to serve as that kind of support: a tool that coaches can use to help teachers match specific learning goals with the right research-based instructional strategies. Coaches have enormous potential to help teachers learn and implement new teaching practices, but coaches will be effective only if they deeply understand the strategies they describe and their explanations are clear. The Instructional Playbook: The Missing Link for Translating Research into Practice addresses both issues head on and offers a simple and clear explanation of how to create a playbook uniquely designed to meet teachers' instructional needs. The idea of an instructional playbook has caught fire since Jim Knight described it in The Impact Cycle (2017). This book helps instructional coaches create playbooks that produce a common language about high-impact teaching strategies, deepen everyone's understanding of what instructional coaches do, and, most important, support teachers and students in classrooms.

Jurgen Herbst
R509 Discovery Miles 5 090 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

To lend weight to his charge that the public school teacher has been betrayed and gravity to his indictment of the educational establishment for that betrayal, Jurgen Herbst goes back to the beginnings of teacher education in America in the 1830s and traces its evolution up to the 1920s, by which time the essential damage had been done. Initially, attempts were made to upgrade public school teaching to a genuine profession, but that ideal was gradually abandoned. In its stead, with the advent of newly emerging graduate schools of education in the early decades of the twentieth century, came the so-called professionalization of public education. At the expense of the training of elementary school teachers (mostly women), teacher educators shifted their attention to the turning out of educational "specialists" (mostly men)-administrators, faculty members at normal schools and teachers colleges, adult education teachers, and educational researchers. Ultimately a history of the neglect of the American public school teacher, And Sadly Teach ends with a plea and a message that ring loud and clear. The plea: that the current reform proposals for American teacher education-the Carnegie and the Holmes reports-be heeded. The message: that the key to successful school reform lies in educating teacher's true professionals and in acknowledging them as such in their classrooms.

A revolution has been taking place in the ranks of higher education. University and college presidents-once almost invariably the products of ""traditional"" scholarly, tenure-track career paths, up through the provost's office-are rapidly becoming a group with diverse skills and backgrounds. The same is true for many deans and administrative leaders. In Higher Calling: The Rise of Nontraditional Leaders in Academia, Scott C. Beardsley, dean of the University of Virginia's prestigious Darden School of Business, offers a new vision of leadership for today's higher education. Grounded in the author's own inspirational story of leaving McKinsey & Company in pursuit of a new source of meaning in his professional life, Higher Calling employs research gathered from search firm executives who now play king or queen maker in presidential and dean searches. It also takes into account information from U.S. liberal arts colleges-considered by many to be the bellwethers of change-to explore what set of strengths an institution of higher education needs in a leader in the twenty-first century. Beardsley explores the widely varying definitions and associated numbers of traditional and nontraditional leaders and asks, Why are U.S. colleges and universities hiring nontraditional candidates to lead them into the future? How are the skills required to lead higher education institutions changing? Or has the search process changed, resulting in a more diverse set of candidates? Providing not only an analysis of nontraditional leaders in higher education but also strategies for developing skills and selecting leaders, Beardsley offers a wealth of information for the modern university in the face of change.

R866 Discovery Miles 8 660 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Originally published in 1969 and now available in this new edition, General Lee's College offers the early history of the institution that became Washington and Lee University. Emerging from obscure eighteenth- century origins on the Virginia frontier as Liberty Hall Academy, it struggled for survival against what at times appeared to be overwhelming odds. Receiving a sizeable gift from Virginia native George Washington in 1796, the school soon after assumed the name Washington College and established itself in the mold of the classical colleges of the Old South, as faculty and administrators promoted a provincial outlook and strict adherence to Presbyterian teachings. Secession and civil war had a dramatic impact on the college, as military service called away students, most of whom enlisted with the Confederate army. The Union victory in 1865 prompted college trustees to lay out a new vision for the institution, and they elected Confederate general Robert E. Lee, another native son of Virginia, to lead the college as president through the uncertainty of the postwar years. After Lee's death in 1870, the school's fortunes ebbed and flowed against the backdrop of Reconstruction. Yet the institution- renamed Washington and Lee University- rebounded in the decades after World War I. With an expanded curriculum, a larger faculty, and a more diverse student body, the school began to blaze a path of success that stretches well into the twenty-first century.
