Description : This is a book full of ideas for introducing real world problems into mathematics classrooms and assisting teachers and students to benefit from the experience. Taken as a whole these contributions provide a rich resource for mathematics teachers and their students that is readily available in a single volume. Nowadays there is a universal emphasis on teaching for understanding, motivating students to learn mathematics and using real world problems to improve the mathematics experience of school students. However, using real world problems in mathematics classrooms places extra demands on teachers in terms of extra-mathematical knowledge e.g. knowledge of the area of applications, and pedagogical knowledge. Care must also be taken to avoid overly complex situations and applications. Papers in this collection offer a practical perspective on these issues, and more. While many papers offer specific well worked out lesson type ideas, others concentrate on the teacher knowledge needed to introduce real world applications of mathematics into the classroom. We are confident that mathematics teachers who read the book will find a myriad of ways to introduce the material into their classrooms whether in ways suggested by the contributing authors or in their own ways, perhaps through mini-projects or extended projects or practical sessions or enquiry based learning. We are happy if they do! This book is written for mathematics classroom teachers and their students, mathematics teacher educators, and mathematics teachers in training at pre-service and in-service phases of their careers.
Description : Change Matters, written by leading scholars committed to social justice in English education, provides researchers, university instructors, and preservice and inservice teachers with a framework that pivots social justice toward policy. The chapters in this volume detail rationales about generating social justice theory in what Freire calls «the revolutionary process» through essays that support research about teaching about the intersections between teaching for social change and teaching about social injustices, and directs us toward the significance of enacting social justice methodologies. The text unpacks how education, spiritual beliefs, ethnicity, age, gender, ability, social class, political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation, gender expression, language, national origin, and education intersect with the principles by which we live and the multiple identities that we embody as we move from space to space. This book is critical reading for anyone who strives to cease inequitable schooling practices by conducting research in education to inform more just policies.

Description : This report calls on the Government to record overseas students under a classification that does not count against the overall limit on net migration in order to allow the UK to continue to expand its share of the overseas student market. The Committee notes the Government's desire to reduce net migration. However, there is a clear conflict between this policy and the desire to attract more overseas students to the UK. Moreover, the way in which the policy has been implemented and measured is clearly having a detrimental impact. At a time of such economic difficulty, it is vital that the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills demonstrates it has an active strategy to support the expansion of this important and lucrative market. The Committee argues that, for domestic policy purposes, overseas students should be recorded under a separate classification and not be counted against the overall limit on net migration, along similar lines to the United States. The Committee supports the Government's policy to remove bogus students and colleges from our Higher Education system. However, the way in which this policy is communicated must be handled carefully to ensure it does not give the impression that the UK no longer welcomes genuine students
Description : A teacher of communication expresses his concern for thousands of students who are cheating themselves out of a worthwhile education by falling into the accepted role of "nonperson" uninvolved in the education process. In this book, the author fosters a belief that success or failure in college depends on communicationâ"interdependent efforts of people in a relationship to generate common meaning." He proposes to get students to realize that their education is something other students can help them develop, as much as teachers. The author uses a personal style of writing to talk with the students. He uses examples from the students' immediate campus environment in challenging them to question their roles in the educational process. Written for and tested in interpersonal communication courses, the book is also appropriate for teacher education courses, "orientation to college life" courses, and for college counseling centers.
Description : A realistic approach to assessing student behavior, staff morale, and school climate and creating a proven-to-work character development program that can dramatically turn around student behavior.
