Assessing Children’s Learning

Challenging the Role of the Teaching Assistant

Mary Jane Drummond, University of Cambridge, UK. Now featuring a brand new foreword by Sue Swaffield, this classic text, Assessing Children’s Learning, examines some of the vital questions that teachers and other educators ask themselves as they assess children’s learning across the curriculum. The author sets out to offer an alternative to objective, mechanical approaches to assessment; she defines assessment as a process in which teachers look at children’s learning, strive to understand it, and then put their understanding to good use in the classroom where children are given both trust and freedom to learn. $53.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415686730, NZRP$67.00 Publish December 2011, 224 pages Routledge Education Quantity

Hugh Sockett, George Mason University, USA.

Michelle Morgan describes how her new Student Experience ‘Practitioner Model’ provides an organised and more detailed structure; guiding Practitioners in the identification of what they have to deliver, who they need to deliver it to and when they need to deliver it across her six key stages of the student lifecycle. The Practioner Model offers a new way of thinking in terms of delivering ‘interlinked’ academic, welfare and support activities at the home unit and university level to support the student in their university journey. $62.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415598798, NZRP$78.00 Publish December 2011, 256 pages Routledge Education

The challenge this book addresses is to demonstrate how, in teaching content knowledge, the development of intellectual and moral dispositions as virtues is not merely a good idea, or peripheral to that content, but deeply embedded in the logic of searching for knowledge and truth. It offers a powerful example of how philosophy of education can be brought to bear on real problems of educational research and practice-pointing the reader to re-envision what it means to educate children by developing the person, instead of simply knowledge and skills. $69.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415899987, NZRP$87.00 Publish December 2011, 288 pages Routledge Quantity Education

The Archaic

Metacognition in Action

Paul Bishop, University of Glasgow, UK.

Surviving Identity

Gregory William Smith, Freehills, Perth, Australia.

Kenneth McLaughlin. Today, political claims are increasingly made on the basis of experienced trauma and inherent vulnerability, for example in the increasing numbers of people who identify as a ‘survivor’ of one thing or another, as well as the way in which much political discourse and social policy assumes the vulnerability of the population. This book discusses these developments in relation to the changing focus of social movements; from concerns with economic redistribution towards campaigns for cultural recognition. $46.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415591218, NZRP$58.00 Publish December 2011, 168 pages Routledge Psychology & Counselling Quantity

In recent years, safety management has placed leadership and management commitment at the center of effective workplace health and safety programs. At the same time, personal liability for workplace health and safety has increased, resulting in poor outcomes for individual managers. Discussing the minimum expectations that Courts and Tribunals have of managers, this book examines the relationship between those expectations and effective safety performance. Using specific case examples for illustration, the author examines whether managers are merely meeting their legal obligations or making a positive contribution to workplace safety and health. $89.95 Pb, ISBN 9781439862780, NZRP$113.00 Publish December 2011, 192 pages CRC Press Quantity Healthcare

Entrepreneurship in Context takes the opposite tack - it studies entrepreneurship as a context bound phenomenon.

It also deals with wider contexts such as social, industry, cultural, ethnic, sustainability-related, institutional, and historical contexts. $184.00 Hb, ISBN 9780415890922, NZRP$232.00 Publish December 2011, 224 pages Routledge Business & Management

This book fills that gap, offering a detailed analysis of the work practices and working conditions of web designers. Helen Kennedy draws on over a decade of work and research within the web design industry to argue that web design is suffused with ethical inflections, which originate both in Tim Berners-Lee’s ideal vision of the web as an open, accessible and universal medium, and in the ethics and values which individual web designers bring to their work. $46.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230231405, NZRP$58.00 Publish December 2011, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Media & Communications

Television explains in depth how television programs and commercials are made and how they function as producers of meaning. Author Jeremy G. Butler shows the ways in which camera style, lighting, set design, editing, and sound combine to produce meanings that viewers take away from their television experience. He supplies students with a whole toolbox of implements to disassemble television and read between the lines, teaching them to incorporate critical thinking into their own television viewing. $104.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415883283, NZRP$131.00 Publish December 2011, 528 pages Routledge Media & Communications Quantity

Based on original research and insights, The Politics of Culture charts a long-term shift in policymaking towards the use of culture as an instrument to achieve social and political objectives. This has brought an increase in funding and prestige to cultural institutions but created confusion about what culture is, who it belongs to and what it says about being human. This book puts forward a new understanding of universalism, one which recognizes that our ability to transcend difference is the essence of human culture and democratic politics. $115.00 Hb, ISBN 9780230284531, NZRP$145.00 Publish December 2011, 224 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Politics
