INTRODUCING PALGRAVE MACMILLAN’S NEW SERIES: AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM CLASSROOM APPROACHES The Australian Curriculum Classroom Approaches series draws together a range of contemporary approaches to curriculum design and pedagogy, consistent with the spirit and aims of the Australian Curriculum for students in years 7 to 10. Curriculum is defined as those learning experiences planned by teachers as well as the processes by which they are implemented. Each title aims to provide teachers at all stages of their careers (from pre-service to the highly experienced), with support for creating engaging teaching and learning experiences for students. Using the Understanding by Design approach the series integrates the scaffolding of literacy and numeracy, and the incorporation of communication technologies with the principles of inquiry, differentiation, authentic assessment and student-centred pedagogies. Units of work focus on performance tasks designed to maximise student engagement and promote creative and critical thinking. Each book also includes a series of ‘worked example’ units and support for teachers to design or tailor their own units to the needs of their students.

History The Australian Curriculum Classroom Approaches NICOLE MOCKLER is a Senior Lecturer in Education at University of Newcastle. DEBRA TALBOT is a professional learning and research consultant. Australian Curriculum Classroom Approaches: History includes 12 units of work developed from the Australian Curriculum for years 7 to10. The units seek to develop students’ historical understanding and literacy, integrating the content descriptions of the two curriculum strands of Historical Knowledge and Understanding and Historical Skills. A key feature throughout the series is the consistent design and layout. Part 1 explains the approach and outlines the theory and practice of curriculum design while Part 2 outlines the units of work explicitly linked to the Australian Curriculum for each year level. Part 3 provides do-it-yourself curriculum design solutions followed by curriculum design templates which are also available on the associated website. The book uses the Understanding by Design approach with the three stages of curriculum design: identifying the desired results, determining the acceptable evidence of learning and planning learning experiences and instruction accordingly. The units of work for each year level have been designed using the 5Es model for inquiry-based teaching: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate. $54.95 Pb, NZ$69.95 ISBN 9781420256642 October 2012, 224 pages

VALERIE MARGRAIN is a Lecturer in Early Years Education at Massey University, New Zealand. KAREN MCLEAN is a Lecturer in early childhood and primary courses at the Australian Catholic University.

It provides students with a robust understanding of how the images teachers hold of children can shape assessment, and the what, why and how of assessment for diverse learners. It contends that teachers need both a thorough understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to assessment in the early years (0-8 years) and a toolkit of assessment strategies in order to understand individual differences in learning and development then in an informed way, teachers can shape teaching and learning in the best interests of the child. The book has been developed in line with the Australian curriculum framework as well as with Te Whãriki in New Zealand so that students can understand the links between curriculum planning and assessment.

Motor Learning and Skill Acquisition MICHAEL SPITTLE is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at Deakin University. Motor learning is the study of how we learn (or acquire) motor skills. Understanding motor learning is important for individuals involved in instructing or teaching movement skills, such as physical education teachers, primary education teachers, coaches and exercise scientists. Motor Learning and Skill Acquisition is organised to initially provide a general understanding of what motor learning is and some important variables related to understanding learning in sport and physical education. Once the reader understands what learning is and some factors that can influence learning, the topic of motor control in introduced. Understanding how we control movement is important as a basis for understanding how to develop approaches for teaching and coaching. If an instructor understands how someone produces a movement, they will be much better equipped to be able to help a learner to actually do it. The book then goes further and explores how to create an effective learning environment to assist in learning and performing movement skills in physical education, exercise and sport science. Being an instructor in physical education, exercise and sport science is an art, and the topics covered in the textbook will provide students with a research and theoretical basis on which to make decisions about how to set up learning environments to help learners achieve their best.

Reforming Homework Practices, Learning and Policy MIKE HORSLEY is an Associate Professor and Doctoral Supervisor at Central Queensland University. RICHARD WALKER is an Associate Professor and Associate Dean of Postgraduate Coursework and Professional Education at the University of Sydney. While homework has been a controversial issue for over 100 years, the debate has been reignited by new research undertaken by educators with renewed focus on a number of issues. While many educators and teachers consider homework to be important, many have concerns about its value, the way it intrudes on class teaching time as well as the inequities that homework may create. Reforming Homework discusses these issues and suggests that there are two main problems with homework as it is currently planned and organised. First, much homework is a repetitive practice and does not contribute to new learning. Secondly, much homework is too complex and difficult for students to complete by themselves. Such complex tasks come at a considerable cost to family life, parental time and equity. This text proposes that a sociocultural conception of homework is required in order to address such concerns. It provides alternative ways of approaching and organising homework as a cultural practice within varying school and cultural contexts. In addition to its strong theoretical underpinning, this text provides frameworks for guiding homework practices and identifies possible solutions to the issues which have been contested for over a century. Containing vignettes, case studies and checklists for best practice, Reforming Homework is the most comprehensive synthesis of research on homework and student achievement to date. $54.95 Pb, NZ$69.95 ISBN 9781420256130 October 2012, 296 pages

Transforming the Curriculum through the Arts Formerly an art/craft specialist in primary schools, ROBYN GIBSON has lectured in the Creative Arts in both the Bachelor of Education (Primary) and the Master of Teaching (Primary) programs at the University of Sydney for the past fifteen years. Initially a primary teacher, ROBYN EWING is Professor of Teacher Education and the Arts and Associate Dean (Academic) in the Faculty of Education and Social Work at the University of Sydney. Robyn lectures in Curriculum, English and Drama across pre-service and postgraduate teacher education programs and has a commitment to innovative teaching and learning at all levels of education. Transforming the Curriculum through the Arts offers something to every teacher who is concerned about the lack of creativity and imagination in today’s curriculum. There is much evidence to suggest that the Arts can make a unique contribution to the lives of young people, their learning and their ability to be creative and imaginative thinkers. Transforming the Curriculum through the Arts supports this idea by presenting the Arts as being central to children’s development and as such provides a much-needed framework for arts-enriched learning and teaching strategies across the primary and middle years curriculum. Based on current national and international research, this book presents a well-grounded rationale for embedding the Arts into the curriculum. Key learning areas are addressed in meaningful, relevant, interesting and creative ways. Innovative exemplars, many written and implemented by practising teachers, are clearly demonstrated.

From there, this new edition, as with its predecessors, introduces the general notion of language in context and text types, before progressing to a stepby-step exploration of the three metafunctions of language: experience, interpersonal exchange and textual organisation. The two final chapters, new to this edition, concentrate on practical applications of functional grammar theory for language education, analysis of multimodality in texts, literature, and professional contexts such as psychotherapy. $74.95 Pb, NZ$99.95 ISBN 9781420256789 September 2012, 416 pages

Australian Journalism Today MATTHEW RICKETSON is an academic and journalist. He has worked on staff at The Age, The Australian and Time Australia magazine, among others and has won awards for his work. In 2009, he was appointed inaugural Professor of Journalism at the University of Canberra, where he also headed the discipline of Journalism and Communications until his appointment by the federal government in September 2011 to assist former Federal Court judge, Ray Finkelstein QC, in an independent inquiry into the media in Australia. Matthew returned to the university after the inquiry reports in February 2012. The rise of new communication technologies has cracked open long-held assumptions that the media and journalism are closely related. They are related but they are not synonyms. The revenue from classified advertising that enabled media companies to pay for journalism can now be generated online by companies that have nothing to do with journalism. The ramifications of these new technologies, both for the business of media and for the practice of journalism, are still unfolding but it is already clear they are of critical importance. If the business model that sustained journalism for many years is under threat, these same communication technologies offer journalists new ways of gathering news and presenting stories as well as new ways of engaging with ‘the people formerly known as the audience’. In Australian Journalism Today, experts in the practice and theory of journalism examine key questions facing current and aspiring practitioners. What is the future of investigative journalism? How can journalists cover traumatic events without traumatising themselves or others? How can journalists navigate privacy in the online world? Why do some journalists end up training people to avoid other journalists’ questions? Can satire ever be considered journalism? Are we seeing the emergence of viable business models for the media of the 21st century? And are journalists and citizens competing or complementary players in the new media landscape, and what can they learn from each other? $69.95 Pb, NZ$89.95 ISBN 9781420256727 May 2012, 272 pages

Clinical Leadership Innovation into Action DAVID STANLEY has published, researched and taught on issues related to clinical leadership since 2001. He has also spoken about clinical leadership at conferences in the UK, Ireland, Canada and Australia. David currently works as an Associate Professor at the University of Western Australia in Perth, Western Australia. Leadership is critical to nursing and is displayed across a wide range of settings including the practice environment, management, education and research. As such, Clinical Leadership: Innovation into Action is directed towards ‘ground level’ clinical staff, many of whom are, although they may not see it, clinical leaders in health care organisations. The book offers practical, research-based guidance and examples that will inspire, motivate, support and facilitate clinical leaders (or aspiring clinical leaders) in the application of clinical leadership skills. Written for health professionals who act principally in direct client/patient care, it describes the difference between leadership and management. It sets out a new theory of leadership: congruent leadership, primarily focused on how nurses and other health professionals lead at the bedside. Containing case studies and activities, Clinical Leadership supports nursing students, nurse practitioners and health professionals as they strive to develop clinical leadership skills, and as such clinical excellence. The book aims not only to develop, but also support strong nursing leaders, equipping them with the skills needed to foster future nurses for generations to come. $64.95 Pb, NZ$79.95 ISBN 9781420256635 June 2011, 224 pages

Health as a Social Experience REBECCA FANANY is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Deakin University. Her background and training is in the field of Public Health and she has worked in compliance and training in the United States and Australia at both the state and federal levels. DAVID FANANY teaches in the School of Human Biosciences and Public Health at La Trobe University. His training is in the fields of Biomedical Engineering and Public Health. Health is a primary concern for a growing number of people in today’s society. The level of our awareness of the biological issues which affect our health is at an all-time high. Health, however, is not solely a question of biology; it is strongly influenced by societal forces which shape people’s lives such as education, work, culture, language, politics and macroeconomics. Knowledge of these forces is therefore an essential addition to any understanding of how people experience health, as well as any attempt to improve health outcomes. Health as a Social Experience offers a thorough examination of the social determinants which commonly influence health outcomes, starting with those related to individuals and expanding to the deeper structures of society. The question of choice is also comprehensively discussed. Drawing on recent research, as well as real-world case studies, this text provides introductory students with a gateway into the field of public health, offering an insight into the issues faced by health professionals when working with the general populace.

He studied Classics (including Ancient Greek and Latin) and Ancient History at the University of Canterbury, where he completed his doctoral studies under the supervision of Dr Katherine Adshead and Professor Kevin Lee. He taught at the University of Western Australia before taking up the post at Macquarie. His fields of research are Greek history and historiography, especially the study of Thucydides. He also works on women writers from Ancient Greece and Rome, and more recently on Egyptian religion in Greek and Latin writers. He teaches Ancient Greek, Latin, Mythology, Greek Heroes, Women Writers, Thucydides and Herodotus. Myth in the Ancient World provides a complete introduction to this important field of study. It contains a selection of readings from ancient texts and a comprehensive glossary designed for readers meeting the people and places of the ancient world for the first time. The book asks what a myth is and how it differs from other narratives, such as legends and folktales. It also looks at interpretations of meaning in mythology. The focus is on Ancient Greek myth, but Roman reinterpretation of Greek stories and the invention of Roman myth are also discussed. Texts from Egypt, the peoples of Mesopotamia, and the Jewish traditions found in the Bible broaden the context and deepen our understanding of myth. The book examines the relevance of key themes to the cultures in which the myths arose or in which they were adapted and retold. Looking at the reflection of the ancient world through myth helps us to identify important religious, social and political aspects of ancient cultures.

Who Benefits Now? The Australian Welfare State after Welfare Reform CATHERINE MCDONALD is the Program Director for the Social Work program at RMIT University. GREG MARSTON is a Professor for the School of Social Work and Human Services at the University of Queensland. LOIS BRYSON is an Emeritus Professor for RMIT University. In 1992, Australian sociologist Lois Bryson published what proved to be an important book entitled Welfare and the State: Who Benefits? The central feature of that book was an exploration of the actual (as opposed to assumed) nature of redistribution via the Australian welfare state. The goals of Who Benefits Now? are to assess trends in poverty and inequality from 1992 to the present and describe and assess the institutions that make up the Australian welfare state. Taking Bryson’s initial analysis as the base line, the authors illustrate the major structural and institutional developments in the Australian welfare state and the Australian economy and society over that same period. Following this they analyse political and policy responses to poverty and inequality in Australia and assess the extent and direction of redistribution in key areas of state activity. Finally, they develop the links between Australians’ misconceptions about welfare and distributive outcomes of the welfare state, and importantly, canvass theoretical explanations of why an inaccurate understanding of the broad distributive mechanisms of the Australian welfare state and negative attitudes towards the social welfare part of the Australian welfare state exist.

Social policy is shown to be dynamic, flexible and provisional, and the opportunities for human service practitioners to engage in the processes of making and implementing social policy for social change are emphasised.

PUBLIC POLICY

Culture Wars Australian and American Politics in the 21st Century JIM GEORGE (ANU) is a renowned international relations and foreign policy scholar who over the past two decades has written pathbreaking books and more than thirty articles and book chapters on traditional and contemporary issues in IR. KIM HUYNH (ANU) is one of the most exciting new talents on the Australian scholarly scene. He is a social commentator on contemporary Australia with particular interests in issues of refugee politics, the party system and foreign policy. Culture Wars: Australian and American Politics in 21st Century argues that ‘culture wars’ attitudes and conflicts intrinsic to US politics for many decades are also deeply embedded characteristics of Australian political life in the 21st century. It suggests that during the Howard years (1996–2007) culture war antagonisms were forced to the political surface in Australia, albeit without the volatility and violence that sometimes accompanies disputes over religion, social authority, morality, multiculturalism, race, sexuality, education, immigration, feminism and national identity in the United States. The authors maintain that this tension is not necessarily a negative for Australian politics because it will help further ventilate culture war disputes within Australian society and democratise debates which have been largely the province of educated elites. The book seeks to further this democratisation process and engage the culture wars in broader terms than is anywhere else available in the literature. It provides a historical and intellectual framework for understanding the contemporary culture wars, before traversing some of its many battlegrounds, on foreign policy and national identity, ‘the struggle for God’, ‘family values’, immigration, the History Wars and the (Australian) ‘Bogan’ factor, among others. $49.95 Pb, NZ$65.95 ISBN 9781420256178 November 2008, 184 pages

Critical Reflexivity and Political Skills in Social Work Practice USCHI BAY is a Social Work Lecturer at Monash University. Critical Reflexivity and Political Skills in Social Work Practice is a book that will provide social work students, academics and practitioners a framework for re-politicising social work practice in addressing contemporary challenges. The book elaborates on recent changes to the meaning of politics and identifies some of the skills needed to act politically in social work practice. The book aims to promote the following political skills for social work practice: unpacking the politics of problem definitions; identifying how power relations operate in specific policy areas; the politics of identity and identity politics; political storytelling; forming political judgments; taking on political commitments; and engaging in political action. It also links the discussion of each of these political skills to specific and current social work practice examples, including social workers dealing with new challenges confronting the world in the 21st Century, such as climate change, increasing numbers of refugees, increasing numbers of people affected by viruses and global changes in the ageing of populations.

The contributions of different cultures to the fabric of society are highlighted and how service needs can be best met by mainstream health and welfare service providers. At the same time, the book acknowledges that there remains a place for specialist ethno-specific services and tailoring services to cultural needs.

Innovative Human Services Practice Australia’s Changing Landscape MARGARET ALSTON is Professor of Social Work and Head of Department at Monash University. Prior to her appointment, she lived and worked in rural areas for over thirty years. She has published widely in this area and is passionate about equity and social justice for people living in rural and remote areas. Australia’s folklore and heritage are imbued with iconic images of rural Australia – the broad plains, wide horizons and stoic, laconic people of the outback. Yet, despite its significance to our national psyche, rural Australia is at a crisis point due largely to global & climate factors, such as climate change, bushfires and drought, resulting in depopulation and a consequent disintegrating social fabric. Innovative Human Services Practice focuses on the impacts on the people and communities most affected and the way human services in the vast areas have responded to date: it seeks to give direction as to how they might respond in the future, promoting more effective health and welfare responses. The book draws on international scholarship in order to promote models of Human Service delivery supportive of rural and remote Australia. It re-focuses attention on reshaping viable and creative human services and human service practice models that deliver real and positive benefits to people living in rural and remote areas. It is a timely work in the context of vigorous debate on national responses to climate change and people movements.

The Organisational Context of Human Service Practice ELIZABETH OZANNE is Associate Professor in Social Work at the University of Melbourne. DAVID ROSE is a lecturer of Social Work at the University of Melbourne. Human service workers often see their primary focus as the core skills of frontline work. However, human service work predominantly takes place from within an organisational environment that strongly influences which services are provided, how they are provided, the overall legitimacy of those services and how they are perceived by service users and the broader community. As such, an understanding of the context of human service organisations and how they influence practice is essential for all practitioners. The Organisational Context of Human Service Practice provides a framework for thinking about and understanding human service practice. It highlights not only how the organisation shapes and influences everyday human service practice but also how human service workers might shape and influence organisations. Containing a number of pedagogical tools such as case studies, learning activities and discussion question, The Organisational Context of Human Service Practice combines historical and contemporary perspectives and serves as an authoritative guide to success within human service organisations.

SUE GREEN is an Associate Professor of Social Work at the University of New South Wales. STEPHANIE GILBERT works in academia at the University of Newcastle. DAWN BESSARAB is a researcher in Indigenous health at the Centre for Health Innovation Research Institute, Curtin University. Current social work practice in Australia is very much based in Western traditions: this can create conflict or misunderstandings when working with groups whose epistemologies and ontologies are different. Our Voices is a ground-breaking collection of writings from Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous social work educators and students. Through a process of hypothesising, reflecting and evaluating, the authors have built and acquired a tool kit of appropriate behaviours, interactions, networks and interventions that work. Sharing this tool kit means sharing the outcome of a methodical, informative and evaluative process. Through the exploration of a number of contemporary social work practice issues, including cultural supervision, working with communities, understanding trauma, collaboration and relationship building and narrative practice, this text provides valuable insight into how social work practice can be developed, taught and practised. This book will not only help Aboriginal social workers assist their own communities, but it will also provide other social workers with the impetus to engage, apply and recognise the significance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge systems and ways of working to more effectively engage communities. $64.95 Pb, NZ$84.95 ISBN 9781420256734 October 2012, 280 pages

Applied Social Research Planning, Designing and Conducting Real-World Research RALPH HALL is a professor in the School of Social Sciences and International Studies at the University of New South Wales. He teaches social research methods, evaluation and philosophy of social science. His current research interests are peer mentoring programs for students and aspects of road safety. Applied Social Research focuses on the real-world context of applied research. It discusses the often overlooked yet essential process of planning: poor planning inevitably produces inadequate research. The text helps researchers decide how to approach their applied research problems and to think through the major issues in the design and analysis of their project. Applied Social Research also discusses the idea that in applied social research the use of a single method type is unlikely to provide answers to the often complex set of research questions being addressed and highlights the benefits of using two or more research methods in the one study. The author argues that such mixed method designs are becoming widely used in applied social research, particularly where the methods combine qualitative and quantitative data, thereby enabling a richer set of data to provide various perspectives on the research topic, removing limitations imposed by using single methods. Examples of such designs are provided throughout, and useful mixed method designs are outlined and their advantages discussed.

The Fashion Design Manual 2 PAMELA STECKER has extensive fashion knowledge, based on her years of experience as a designer, consultant, writer and educator in the industry. After becoming qualified and working as an art and design teacher, and fashion designer, producing her own label for five years, and living and working in the fashion industry in Europe, Pamela now lives in Sydney where she lectures in fashion and runs a successful fashion consultancy, Imageworks. She consults to government and large corporations on uniforms and corporate image, as well as fashion companies in Australia and China, where her book Superstyle at Work was published. The Fashion Design Manual 2 provides a comprehensive view of the creative process of designing and creating fashion. It shows how a designer works with fabrics, colours and shapes, and combines them with inspiration and new ideas to create garments that suit the mood of the times and allow the wearer to express their individuality. It invites the reader to tread the path of the designer, as their ideas are taken from sketch to sample, through production, onto the catwalk and, via the retailer, to the consumer. Each stage is discussed in detail and has been written with the support and endorsement of many fashion companies, organisations and industry professionals. The text is generously illustrated with drawings, charts and photographs, many of which are new and come direct from industry sources. The challenges posed by the imperative to perform responsibly and sustainably while still embracing a love for fashion are also addressed in this edition. So too are the exciting new technologies, and the careers and opportunities that international trade has created for those wanting to work in an industry where almost anything is possible.
