R992 Discovery Miles 9 920 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

English teachers are always keen to explore new ways of motivating their pupils to engage with reading, both for learning and for pleasure. Literacy Activities for Classic and Contemporary Texts 7-14 is a practical, friendly book which uses the 'whoosh' to cover some of our best known classic and contemporary texts and offers a thoroughly enjoyable way for pupils to become part of the story, rather than just passive recipients of it. As an innovative and active learning strategy, the whoosh technique allows all students, regardless of gender, age, ability, learning need or command of language, to partake on an equal footing. For younger pupils, the activities in this book provide an ideal way to internalise structure and key elements in story telling through physical response. For older students, they provide an enjoyable way to engage with challenging texts as well as facilitating the analysis of themes, issues, characterisation and setting. Students themselves become the story as its characters, sounds and even objects - once they are familiar with whooshing, many students will want to write and produce a whoosh of their own. Classic authors and texts covered by this book include:- Aesop's fables, Greek myths and legends; Beowulf, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Oscar Wilde; Shakespeare (The Tempest, Twelfth Night, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream); Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Robert Louis Stevenson, Mary Shelley; Andrew Norriss , Frank Cottrell Boyce, Nina Bawden, Michelle Magorian and much more... You can use a whoosh to introduce a new text, to examine conflict, dilemma, plot, setting or characterisation, whoosh a controversial section of text to provoke discussion, or overcome reluctance to engage with archaic language by whooshing key sections of a story. Discussion starters, lesson objectives and follow-up activities are included throughout the text alongside the whooshes, and scripts enabling pupils to deliver dialogue are provided on the book's eResource. This book is an invaluable resource, providing whooshes across a wide range of genres to meet the learning needs of children from 7 to 14, for both practising primary and lower secondary teachers.

The Barbarians Arrive Today - Poems & Prose (Paperback): C.P. Cavafy The Barbarians Arrive Today - Poems & Prose (Paperback)
C.P. Cavafy; Translated by Evan Jones
R524 R432 Discovery Miles 4 320 Save R92 (18%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

With The Barbarians Arrive Today, Evan Jones has produced the classic English Cavafy for our age. Expertly translated from Modern Greek, this edition presents Cavafy's finest poems, short creative prose and autobiographical writings, offering unique insights into his life's work. Born in Alexandria, Egypt, Constantine Petrou Cavafy (1863-1933) was a minor civil servant who self-published and distributed his poems among friends; he is now regarded as one of the most significant poets of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, an influence on writers across generations and languages. The broad, rich world of the Mediterranean and its complex history are his domain, its days and nights of desire and melancholy, ambition and failure - with art always at the centre of life.

Double-bill of supernatural horror. In 'Mirrors' (2007), Kiefer Sutherland stars as Ben Carson, an ex-cop who quit his job owing to post-traumatic stress syndrome and now works as a night security guard at an old department store that was burned out in a fire. Soon after starting the job, Ben starts to see horrific images in the store's many mirrors: weird spirits that seem intent on pursuing him and his estranged family and watching them through the medium of any nearby reflective surface. Can Ben discover the origin of these evil spirits - and reveal the story they are trying to tell - in time to save himself and those he loves? In 'Mirrors 2' (2010), after his father Jack (William Katt) asks him to stand in for a sick security guard at his recently reopened department store, Max Matheson (Nick Stahl) starts to see visions of a dead woman in mirrors throughout the building. When employees start dying in gruesome circumstances and Max becomes a suspect, he realises that if he is to prove his innocence he must get to the bottom of the dark secret the store's mirrors have held for so many years.

Later Emperors (Paperback): Evan Jones Later Emperors (Paperback)

R255 R211 Discovery Miles 2 110 Save R44 (17%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Later Emperors is four poems, each of which approaches Roman history from a very different perspective. It is also four voices, each one concerned with the living and the dead: voices of historians and moralists, voices of great (and not so great) emperors. Jones has written a book which is all the more for our time because it looks so clearly at other times and identifies in them familiar patterns, difficulties, ambitions and desires. History becomes a crystal ball in which the past chides the future, the same mistakes predicted and made again, the same injustices repeated. The Byzantine historians Michael Psellos and Anna Komnene reveal themselves as the significant chroniclers they always were. The book concludes with a retelling of Plutarch's 'Consolatio Ad Uxorem', in which Jones considers what we might hold on to in a world of suffering.

R1,322 Discovery Miles 13 220 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This is a comprehensive resource of photocopiable worksheets to aid therapeutic intervention. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) aims to help people overcome their emotional difficulties through helping them identify and change their thoughts and behaviour. CBT has been evaluated for a wide range of presenting problems and evidence of its efficacy found for depression, panic, agoraphobia, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), specific phobia, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This eminently practical book provides more than 80 A4 photocopiable worksheets for cognitive behavioural therapists to use with clients. As well as covering the fundamental techniques of CBT, it supplies worksheets specific to presenting problems, such as OCD, panic and worry. Worksheets are essential tools in CBT. They record events and patterns, provide new information, and suggest new ways of thinking and acting. When and how to use a worksheet is determined by a number of factors: the formulation, the stage in therapy, the current focus of treatment, the reading and writing ability of the client and the wishes of the client. The use of worksheets in CBT is an ongoing learning process for both therapists and clients. This is a fantastic resource for all clinicians working within the cognitive behavioural model.

Paralogues (Paperback): Evan Jones Paralogues (Paperback)
Evan Jones
R253 R210 Discovery Miles 2 100 Save R43 (17%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

"Paralogues", which takes its title from the Greek word for 'ballads', is the British debut of an original Canadian poet and editor. Evan Jones explores Greek mythology, Roman and Byzantine history, art and travel, from contemporary perspectives. The myth of Actaeon is re-imagined in three ways, and "Paralogues" concludes with a sequence retelling the Byzantine folk ballad "Constantine and Arete". Translation is central to the collection, from the modern Greek of Miltos Sachtouris to the Austrian German of Raoul Schrott. Readers encounter people and places real and imagined: the lonely figure of the poet Cavafy in Victorian Liverpool, God in post-war Paris, the landscapes of Europe and North America at once familiar and unfamiliar.

Its two volumes -- available separately or together -- comprise an indispensable guide to amateur and professional chamber musicians, scholars, students, and anyone seeking a deeper acquaintance with the great achievements of twentieth-century music.
