Written by experts with expertise in delivering business education in teacher training, further education, and secondary schools, it explores the nature of each subject in relation to the curriculum and offers subject-specific pedagogy to help develop teaching skills and confidence within the classroom. Including case studies and reflective questions in every chapter, the book covers the key topics across the subjects such as: Financial literacy Planning for the delivery of academic and vocational subjects The value of different qualifications and business and industry links Strategies for successful differentiation Assessment and pupil progression Teaching Business, Economics and Enterprise 14-19 is a vital resource for training or newly qualified teachers looking to deliver excellent teaching that will inspire their students and lead to successful learning.
The 2013/2014 Education for All Global Monitoring Report shows that a lack of attention to education quality and a failure to reach the marginalized have contributed to a learning crisis that needs urgent attention. Worldwide, 250 million children many of them from disadvantaged backgrounds are not learning the basics. Teaching and Learning: Achieving Quality for All describes how policy-makers can support and sustain a quality education system for all children, regardless of background, by providing the best teachers. The Report also documents global progress in achieving Education for All goals and provides lessons for setting a new education agenda post-2015. In addition, the Report identifies that insufficient financing is hindering advances in education.
This thesis examines laser generation from the ultraviolet to the short edge of the mid-infrared band by exploiting the nonlinear effects in photonic crystal fibers (PCFs). Several different physical mechanisms are investigated by using homemade PCFs with elaborately customized dispersion profiles. A particular focus is on the development of fiber optical parametric amplifiers (FOPAs) and oscillators (FOPOs) based on the PCFs with a zero-dispersion wavelength of ca.1.06 μm. In particular, several schemes are proposed for solving the key problems involved in the application of FOPOs. These oscillators can be made more convenient to use by optimizing the wavelength-tuning mechanisms and made more energy-efficient with the help of specially designed cavity structures. Today’s oscillators are more reliable, powerful and maneuverable than ever. This thesis provides a systematic road map in connection with the study of nonlinear wavelength generation in PCFs, from their fiber design and technical fabrication, to their physical mechanism and experimental investigation.
Public Service Agreements (PSAs) were introduced in 1998 in order to establish clear objectives for key service improvements across government departments. This White Paper sets out the PSAs for all main departments for the period 2005 to 2008, including departmental key aims and objectives; outcome-focused performance targets; 'floor' targets highlighting particular areas of deprivation; and standards to ensure performance standards are continually monitored, even where previous PSA targets have been met or are about to be met. The PSAs reflect the Government's priorities and set out the planned public service improvements in return for the investment proposed in the 2004 Spending Review White Paper (Cm 6237, ISBN 0101623720).
For thirty-five years and through thirteen editions, Jim Henslin's Down to Earth Sociology has opened new windows onto the social realities that shape our world. Now in its fourteenth edition, the most popular anthology in sociology includes new articles on our changing world while also retaining its classic must-read essays. Focusing on social interaction in everyday life, the forty-six selections bring students face-to-face with the twin projects of contemporary sociology: understanding the individual's experience of society and analyzing social structure. The fourteenth edition's exceptional new readings include selections on the role of sympathy in everyday life, mistaken perceptions of the American family, the effects of a criminal record on getting a job, and the major social trends affecting our future. Together with these essential new articles, the selections by Peter Berger, Herbert Gans, Erving Goffman, Donna Eder, Zella Luria, C. Wright Mills, Deborah Tannen, Barrie Thorne, Sidney Katz, Philip Zimbardo, and many others provide firsthand reporting that gives students a sense of "being there." Henslin also explains basic methods of social research, providing insight into how sociologists explore the social world. The selections in Down to Earth Sociology highlight the most significant themes of contemporary sociology, ranging from the sociology of gender, power, politics, and religion to the contemporary crises of racial tension, crime, rape, poverty, and homelessness.
This book traces the development of artistic talent from early childhood to adolescence through a series of studies that look comparatively at development in talented and less-talented populations. It presents a model of artistic talent that attributes individual differences to the figurative abilities of talented children. The model proposes that artistic talent results from the continual coordination of heightened figurative abilities with conceptual processes throughout a period critical in semiotic development. The studies focus on the development of form, spatial relationships and composition. Milbrath's theory is richly supported by original examples of children's artwork.

This book, along with its companion volume Assessing Reading 2: Changing Practice in Classrooms, was originally conceived as the major outcome from an international seminar on reading assessment held in England. It focuses particularly on theoretical and methodological issues, though with a clear series of links to practices in assessment, especially state and national approaches to classroom-based assessment in the USA, the UK and in Australia, at both primary and secondary levels. Chapters offer new perspectives on the theories that underlie the development and interpretation of reading assessments, national assessments and classroom-based assessment, challenging readers to think in different ways.
A highly technical treatment of specialized transistors. Abe examines high electron mobility transistors, detailing their physical principles, operational characteristics, and analog and digital applications. Yokoyama describes some resonant tunnelling devices: hot electron and bipolar transistors, and barriers using InGaAs-based material. Both authors are from Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. in Atsugi, Japan. A very small book for the price, and on acid paper as well. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
An ideal companion to Knottenbelt's Equine Stud Farm Medicine and Surgery, this comprehensive text covers all aspects of veterinary care of the foal — from birth through weaning. Describing appropriate procedures for clinical assessment of the new-born foal, it addresses emergency interventions, resuscitation, and critical care. Disorders of growth and nutrition are reviewed, as well as congenital or inherited abnormalities of each of the major body systems. Plus, a unique section on special syndromes provides more than 200 color photographs carefully selected from the authors' extensive collection. Content is concise, informative, and easy to read. Full-color photographs illustrate common disorders, congenital defects, and more. Flowcharts summarize key diagnostic tests and findings. Numerous charts and tables provide easy access to key data. Appendices present key data, treatment protocols, techniques, and procedures in a quick-reference format.
