The reception year, before a child starts formal schooling in Grade 1, is critical in a child's development. It is in the Grade R year that the teacher has a unique opportunity to enhance the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that will shape the child's later academic success. A high-quality Grade R programme is therefore very important. Teaching Grade R promotes a participatory and child-centred approach to learning, based on the pedagogy of play that positions children as active learners and encourages teachers to become critically reflective practitioners. This pedagogy of play is explained in detail in the book, and suggestions and pointers are given as to how it can be used in the classroom to enhance learning.

R566 R459 Discovery Miles 4 590 Save R107 (19%) In stock

Accounting literature refers to the procedural and conceptual approaches in the teaching of an introductory accounting course. This book integrates these two approaches by teaching students to understand the why of accounting before considering the how of accounting. The pedagogical philosophy used is referred to as the `concepts model', hence the title. This impacts on both the order of teaching of the topics, as well as how various topics are taught. A strong emphasis is placed on comprehending the conceptual framework, and especially on understanding and applying definitions and recognition criteria of the elements of the financial statements. Students are able to acquire a conceptual understanding of each topic before considering the procedural aspects. The fifth edition of A Concepts-based Introduction to Financial Accounting is up to date with the latest requirements of International Financial Reporting Standards. It incorporates expanded pedagogical features such as learning path tools at the beginning of each chapter and extracts from published financial statements within each chapter that relate to the chapter content. These complement the existing features including the highlighting of key definitions in the text and the integration of pause and reflect scenarios in each chapter. This textbook has an accompanying question book by DL Kolitz and M Kolitz, Questions, Exercises and Problems in Financial Accounting: A Concepts-Based Introduction. Lecturers' support material for the fifth edition include PowerPoint slides and teaching notes for each chapter on how to present the concepts-based approach. These are only made available to prescribing institutions. Support material for students includes lecture-readiness tests that assess students' understanding of each chapter in preparation for lectures. These are made available via the prescribing institutions.

Longlisted for the 2004 Man Booker Prize Shortlisted for the 2004 Orange Prize A haunting tale of an Africa and an adolescence undergoing tremendous changes by a talented young Nigerian writer. The limits of fifteen-year-old Kambili's world are defined by the high walls of her family estate and the dictates of her repressive and fanatically religious father. Her life is regulated by schedules: prayer, sleep, study, and more prayer. When Nigeria begins to fall apart during a military coup, Kambili's father, involved mysteriously in the political crisis, sends Kambili and her brother away to live with their aunt. In this house, full of energy and laughter, she discovers life and love - and a terrible, bruising secret deep within her family. Centring on the promise of freedom and the pain and exhilaration of adolescence, Purple Hibiscus is the extraordinary debut of a remarkable new talent.
