Many teachers are increasingly concerned with how to best support the learning of the rising numbers of bilingual learners in schools - particularly those children who are new to English and therefore cannot yet communicate with the teacher or their peers in their first language - during the silent period. This book offers an alternative insight to that which is most commonly available to teachers and researchers, as instead of examining language acquisition purely from a linguistic approach; it explores the learning that is occurring through a sociocultural lens and even more significantly, from the young child's perspective - the worm's eye view. Investigated through the experiences of young bilingual learners allows the reader to make sense of the making meaning that occurs when the child cannot make sense of his/her new 'world'; nor communicate verbally in the language of instruction in the classroom. Remarkably, learning through the silent period is revealed as both complex and 'messy' as the bilingual child mediates his or her own learning through a synthesis of alternative learning pathways. The silent period is presented as a crucial time for learning; distributed through a synthesis of close observation, intense listening and most significantly copying the practices of others. Throughout the silent period the children are not only seen to be learning but also contributing to the classroom practices. The book not only initiates new understandings of second language learning, but also offers creative ideas on how to raise the achievement of children who are learning English as an additional language.

Advances in Business Education & Training is a Book Series to foster advancement in the field of Business Education and Training. It serves as an international forum for scholarly and state-of-the-art research and development into all aspects of Business Education and Training.

This new volume deals with several aspects of the challenge to design learning in and for a changing world. The first part concerns program development. How to build curricula that are future-proof? Principles to innovate our curricula are identified. It answers the question how we can incorporate the need for change in our thinking about curriculum-development and identify the necessary elements to incorporate in our curricula. The second part focuses on the increasing diversity of students and employees within our schools and organizations, in terms of culture, language, and perception of ability, gifts, and talents. This offers a range of opportunities, but at the same time can possibly jeopardize some processes that are taken for granted. Chapters in this part analyze the processes that play a crucial role in dealing with this diversity and identify educational practices that can help to harvest the potential that lies within this diversity. The third part of this book digs further into the possibilities that are opened up by the implementation of ICT-support in our learning environments. E-learning provides tools to adapt these environments to the needs of an increasingly diverse student-population. In the last part we focus specifically on the workplace and how learning can be designed in such a way that employees are equipped for a shifting workplace. On the one hand it is looked how training can affect performance in the workplace. Does learning transfer to the work environment? On the other hand it is questioned how one can design affordances to trigger learning in the workplace.

Teaching And Learning Through Reflective Practice

RRP $287.99

Now in its second edition, Teaching and Learning through Reflective Practice is a practical guide to enable all those involved in educational activities to learn through the practices of reflection. The book highlights the power that those responsible for teaching and learning have to appraise, understand and positively transform their teaching. Seeing the teacher as a reflective learner, the book emphasises a strengths-based approach in which positivity, resilience, optimism and high performance can help invigorate teaching, enhance learning and allow the teacher to reach their full potential. This approach busts the myth that reflection on problems and deficits is the only way to better performance.

The approach of this new edition is an 'appreciative' one. At its heart is the exploration and illustration of four reflective questions:

  • What's working well?
  • What needs changing?
  • What are we learning?
  • Where do we go from here?

With examples drawn from UK primary teacher education, the book reveals how appreciative reflective conversations can be initiated and sustained. It also sets out a range of practical processes for amplifying success. This book will be a must have for undergraduate and PGCE students on initial teacher training programmes. It will also interest practising teachers, teacher educators and those on continuing professional development courses.

When the Hull City Tigers football club of England hit the big stage of the Premier League for the first time in their 104-year history, several thousand fans vowed to visit all twenty stadium grounds for the Premiership. Devoted fan Paul Collingwood took the opportunity to conduct a personal survey to see which "grand day out" ticked all the right boxes. "The Premiership Match Day Experience" is his entertaining, tongue-in-cheek result.

Collingwood pinpointed five key areas of each stadium necessary for creating a balanced, overall evaluation. These included: Accessibility - Well-marked road signs and directions are a must. Facilities - Food and drink play a major role in a perfect match day. The Stadium - First impressions, inside and out, count for a lot. The Match - Any incidents of note, including songs, fights, and injuries, add to the spirit of the game. Character -Tradition, nostalgia, distinctive design features, and even the people! The season-long mission produced a few surprises for Collingwood and a whole lot of excitement. After all, his prime motives were to sink some beers and enjoy the Tigers' first ever season in the top flight!

Which stadium provided the best experience? Find out in "The Premiership Match Day Experience."
