It's OK to Be Sad: Activities to Help Children Aged 4-9 to Manage Loss, Grief or Bereavement

by Margaret Collins

Visit the author's own website here! 'An ideal resource to use when a child or children in a class are experiencing loss and grief. This area of work makes a vital contribution to bringing one of the most essential learning tasks of life into schools, helping children to recognise the universality of loss and encourage them to feel confident about their own and other people's feelings. If this book was used routinely across the country it would contribute to a significant shift in the environment in which children, and ultimately adults, are able to understand and deal with feelings. If you are a teacher please try and get hold of a copy' - Bereavement Care `Using stories about life events, Margaret Collins focuses on the needs of 4-9 year olds, and the ways in which they can express concerns, anxieties and grief. She also provides helpful advice for children and adults about how to help others when they are experiencing such difficulties' - SENCO Update When a child faces a problem with health or disability we are quick to offer support or change our expectations. Sadness, distress, anxiety, whether transient or long-term, can have significant effects on every child but they are invisible and the support or adjustments might not be in place. In this great resource Margaret uses stories about 20 different life events to: - illustrate the range of feelings - give permission for the expression of feelings - encourage empathy towards others - demonstrate that loss is a common experience for us all. The work balances an acknowledgement of the need to express sorrow and sadness with an opportunity to consider how to do something that is positive for oneself or helpful to others. Margaret Collins is a former headteacher of infant and first schools. She is now Senior Visiting Fellow in the School of Education at the University of Southampton. She researches children's perceptions of health education topics, writes teaching materials for children, books and articles on PSHE.

Ja zum Nein: Selbstachtung statt Harmoniesucht – Mit Sofort-Übungen für den ganz normalen Alltag

Jacques Ranciere: Education, Truth, Emancipation

by Gert Biesta Charles Bingham

Winner - AERA 2011 Outstanding Book AwardJacques Rancière: Education, Truth, Emancipation demonstrates the importance of Rancière's work for educational theory, and in turn, it shows just how central Rancière's educational thought is to his work in political theory and aesthetics. Charles Bingham and Gert Biesta illustrate brilliantly how philosophy can benefit from Rancière's particular way of thinking about education, and go on to offer their own provocative account of the relationship between education, truth, and emancipation. Including a new essay by Rancière himself, this book is a must-read for scholars of social theory and all who profess to educate.

Jahrbuch Medienpädagogik 13: Vernetzt und entgrenzt – Gestaltung von Lernumgebungen mit digitalen Medien (Jahrbuch Medienpädagogik)

by Theo Hug Petra Grell Johannes Fromme Kerstin Mayrberger

Der vorliegende Band versammelt empirische wie theoretische Aufsätze, die sich mit vielfältigen Perspektiven auf die Attribute digital, vernetzt und entgrenzt im medienpädagogischen Kontext beschäftigen. Die Gestaltung von Lernumgebungen mit digitalen Medien vor dem Hintergrund aktueller Entwicklungen, die unter Schlagworten wie Social Media, Open Education, Augmented Reality und Mobile Learning firmieren, können als Verschiebung von Grenzen begriffen werden, die soziale und kommunikative Aspekte des Lernens betreffen. Diese Perspektive trägt dem Umstand Rechnung, dass Lernen heute immer mehr auch in nicht-formalen Bildungskontexten bzw. vielfältig zwischen informellen und formalen (gestalteten) Settings stattfindet. Die mehrdimensionale Grenzverschiebung des Lernens stellt die Medienpädagogik dabei vor neue Herausforderungen.

James: Diaspora Rhetoric of a Friend of God (T&T Clark’s Study Guides to the New Testament)

by Margaret Aymer

In this guide Margaret Aymer introduces the letter of James, countering arguments that it is of limited theological value and significance for early Christianity. Aymer focuses on James' theology of God's divine singularity and immutability, and of God's relationship to the community as father and benefactor. These are theological foundations for its emphasis on community actions of belief, humility and mutual care.Aymer introduces and examines the letter's stand against empire, not least in regard to wealth. Divine power is envisioned as an alternative power to that of the Romans, though in some respects it can seem equally brutal.Aymer concludes by focusing on those addressed by James's homily, the exiles in diaspora. Engaging the psychology of migration, she unpacks the migrant strategy underlying James's call to living 'unstained'. Finally, Aymer encourages student to ask what it might mean now for twenty-first-century people to take seriously a separatist migrant discourse not only as an interesting ancient writing but as a scripture, a lens through which its readers can glimpse the possibilities for how lives are to be lived, and how contemporary worlds can be interpreted and engaged?

James, 1 & 2 Peter, and Early Jesus Traditions (The Library of New Testament Studies #478)

by John S. Kloppenborg Alicia J. Batten

This book studies comparisons and possible trajectories between three 'catholic' epistles: James, 1 and 2 Peter, and traditions associated with Jesus. It covers a range of approaches, exploring the extent to which these letters 'allude' to Jesus' teachings, how they share similar themes, and how and why the letters recall specific memories of the figure of Jesus as found in the Gospels or in Pauline traditions. Studies have argued that James has alluded to some of the sayings attributed to Jesus, but there is no consensus as to what extent or why. Part A analyzes why James would 'allude' to the teachings of Jesus, how he alters these teachings, and what such adaptations suggests about his audience. Part B turns to the Jesus tradition and 1 and 2 Peter. What can 1 Peter's use of Isaiah 53 tell us about the historical Jesus? How has 1 Peter conflated early Jesus traditions with those of ancient Judaism in order to develop certain ideas? How does 2 Peter allude to Gospel traditions? Moreover, how does the author of 2 Peter use early Jesus traditions as a sort of testimony?  The book is important in assisting scholarly thought about source criticism, ancient rhetoric, the influence of Hellenistic, Judean and Roman traditions on early Christianity, and its social history in general.

James and the "Q" Sayings of Jesus (The Library of New Testament Studies)

by Patrick Hartin

The Epistle of James lies on a wisdom trajectory that extends from the Old Testament through to the New. It is among the earliest of the New Testament writings, providing valuable insight into the process of transmission of the sayings of Jesus. By examining textual similarities between James and the early Jesus traditions, such as Q, QMt and QLk, Hartin argues that the Epistle of James is an independent witness to the existence of the Q source, as well as to the way in which this source developed within the Matthaean community which produced QMt.

Allison incorporates new evidence available in the field and applies new methods of studies. No uniform theological or critical approach to the text is taken.

James Mill on Philosophy and Education (Bloomsbury Academic Collections: Philosophy)

by W. H. Burston

Looked upon in his day as the philosopher of the Utilitarians, James Mill was an independent thinker centrally concerned with problems of education. Professor Burston's study places Mill's Essay on Education, his contribution to the Encyclopaedia Britannica of the day, in its historical context and examines the views expressed in this and in other private and published writings, discussing in detail how Mill's view of ethics, psychology and theory of knowledge related to his theory of education, his practical experience as a teacher (especially of his own children) and to his philosophical position as a whole.This work will be of value to all interested in the interrelations of history, philosophy and education in the early nineteenth century.
