The book's 75 lessons and reproducible activities touch on all areas of science and provide the key to a world of science magic and mystery. While kids will have fun doing the activities and learning to love science, they are also being encouraged to develop other skills, including reading, writing, math, and art. The book is designed to help young students catch the "science bug" and find the answers for themselves to these and other questions: Why do cats have whiskers? How does a caterpillar change into a butterfly? Why do elephants have such large ears? How does a grasshopper grow? Why is the skin on my elbows so wrinkled? Why does food taste different when I have a cold? How can we make perfume from flower petals? Why does my shadow change during the day?

Providing a foundation in which researchers may build future research and theory and in which teachers may design more effective classroom practice, this book presents 12 essays that bring together the contributions of researchers and teacher-scholars to present the significant theory and research related to the writing process. The book is divided into 5 sections: Part One focuses on the development of writing; Part Two addresses the relationship of writing to reading and the ways to which readers effectively respond to informational prose; Part Three discusses the need for development of vocabulary and the technical aspects of writing; Part Four describes the research and theory that inform classroom instruction; and Part Five examines three aspects of a portfolio approach to writing assessment. Essays in the book are: (1) "A New Framework for Understanding Cognition and Affect in Writing" (John R. Hayes); (2) "Writing and the Sea of Voices: Oral Language in, around, and about Writing" (Anne Haas Dyson); (3) "Emergent Writing: A Discussion of the Sources of Our Knowledge" (Judith A.

The Posthuman Child combats institutionalised ageist practices in primary, early childhood and teacher education. Grounded in a critical posthumanist perspective on the purpose of education, it provides a genealogy of psychology, sociology and philosophy of childhood in which dominant figurations of child and childhood are exposed as positioning child as epistemically and ontologically inferior. Entangled throughout this book are practical and theorised examples of philosophical work with student teachers, teachers, other practitioners and children (aged 3-11) from South Africa and Britain. These engage arguments about how children are routinely marginalised, discriminated against and denied, especially when the child is also female, black, lives in poverty and whose home language is not English. The book makes a distinctive contribution to the decolonisation of childhood discourses. Underpinned by good quality picturebooks and other striking images, the book's radical proposal for transformation is to reconfigure the child as rich, resourceful and resilient through relationships with (non) human others, and explores the implications for literary and literacy education, teacher education, curriculum construction, implementation and assessment. It is essential reading for all who research, work and live with children.

Ever since he was an infant, Pigeon Jones has lived on the back of an artistically gifted white elephant named Birch. Birch is a loving father, but that doesn't stop Pigeon from wondering about the human parents who abandoned him. Birch has dreams, too—of being a well-known artist, and of finding the acrobat he fell in love with while they performed together in a circus years ago. And so, on Pigeon's tenth birthday, their search for fame and lost loves begins. Pigeon and Birch paint their way across the world, dodging an evil circus ringleader, freeing zoo animals, and befriending singing hoboes along the way. But when they reach the end of their journey, Birch must master the most difficult art of all: letting go and allowing his beloved Pigeon to stand on his own two feet.

Taking readers through the dark alleys and gaslit parlours of nineteenth-century London, Lee Jackson's second Inspector Webb novel is a suspense-filled gothic mystery with the Victorian celebration of death at its morbid heart.
