Description : How people think about education depends on how they understand the notion of 'intelligence'. Teaching reflects assumptions about what kinds of mental qualities are worth having, and about the extent to which those qualities are fixed or malleable. As the idea of 'intelligence' changes, so should the aims and methods of education. It's time to bring intelligence into the real world. In the early 21st century our understanding of the smart mind is changing fast. The demands of society are now quite different from those when schools were first designed, so the kinds of smart necessary to craft a happy and fulfilling life have changed. As life becomes more complex, ambiguous and uncertain, so a different set of mental and emotional attitudes are needed to thrive. Meanwhile, researchers in the cognitive, affective and learning sciences are developing new models of the smart mind that make it clear that bodies, tools and social contacts are as much a part of intelligence as abstract problem-solving. New Kinds of Smart presents the most important of these changes to practising teachers and educators, and invites them to think about their implications for school. Each chapter illustrates the research behind one of the emerging 'new kinds of smart'; summarises the messages that this research has for practitioners; and presents practical examples, tools and templates that educators can use to weave this new strand of thinking into their work as teachers and their lives as learners.

Description : The Ghanaian trickster-spider, Ananse, is a deceptive figure full of comic delight who blurs the lines of class, politics, and morality. David Afriyie Donkor identifies social performance as a way to understand trickster behavior within the shifting process of political legitimization in Ghana, revealing stories that exploit the social ideologies of economic neoliberalism and political democratization. At the level of policy, neither ideology was completely successful, but Donkor shows how the Ghanaian government was crafty in selling the ideas to the people, adapting trickster-rooted performance techniques to reinterpret citizenship and the common good. Trickster performers rebelled against this takeover of their art and sought new ways to out trick the tricksters.

Description : “This book sheds a very bright light on poverty as a central experience of the people social workers work with. Research and theories of power, politics and values are thoroughly discussed and provide the basis for a sustained commitment to social justice. The book is a supportive read as it skilfully appreciates the personal challenges that critical and assertive practice entails. It is a book for students, professionals and service leads to keep, re-read and savour.” Dr Tillie Curran, Senior Lecturer in Social Work, University of the West of England, UK “By identifying power, poverty, politics and values as core themes in social work, this text offers us a refreshing perspective which will challenge students and practitioners alike to re-evaluate their practice in the light of its wider social, political and philosophical contexts. Through an exploration of issues of power and an interrogation of the real meaning of social work ethics and values, Sheedy motivates and encourages us to reflect on our practice and to ensure that it is truly person-centred.” Dr Sue Taplin, University of Nottingham, UK “This book offers a concise and coherent discussion of what should be core themes in thoughtful and careful social work practice. It offers a journey towards rethinking and embracing effective critical practice, which engages with human rights and social justice as much as with empowerment and with individual and interpersonal change. Occasional student accounts, coupled with use of key points and questions for discussion make for accessibility. The book synthesises, summarises and critiques ideas about how to understand and resolve social issues, enabling readers to question how they might work creatively alongside service users. It is a book which invites reflection on policy and practice.” Professor Michael Preston-Shoot, Dean, Faculty of Health and Social Sciences, University of Bedfordshire, UK “This excellent text is essential reading for all social workers and students, and a key resource for academics. It highlights – with concern and conviction – the importance of developing an effective critical practice that ‘challenges, enhances and broadens the task of conventional social work’ in ways that have ‘the potential to improve outcomes for service users’. It calls for a social work practice based on an understanding of the issues of power, politics and ideology - and the values and ‘world view’ held by the worker - linked with concerns raised by the people that social workers regularly encounter and work with. The issues of ‘poverty and disadvantage’ and their structural causes run throughout this text – issues that have been too long neglected in social work. In this text, Martin Sheedy corrects that neglect by outlining in some detail the impact of poverty on people’s lives and life chances whilst at the same time describing how critical practice can be used by social workers to promote social justice and empowerment practices.” Dr Pamela Trevithick, Visiting Professor in Social Work, Buckinghamshire New University, UK This engaging book introduces the core themes in social work, and encourages students and practitioners to connect with the important debates surrounding these themes and challenges them to revisit the direction social work is and should be going in. The key contexts of social work are explored using knowledge from the disciplines of social theory, politics, sociology, psychology and ethics. The content is enlivened by: The voices of students, service users and practitioners Current and topical content on social work, poverty, politics, power and values A discussion style format to help readers engage with the topics An extensive range of sources of knowledge and theory Key summary points at the end of each chapter Group discussion questions at the end of each chapter This book will contribute to social work students’ and practitioners’ thinking about the world in which they live and operate as professionals.

Description : In new and strange situations, it can be hard to know what to do and how to act. My First Scene Book can help! And each of the 51 one-minute scenes -- from the real to the downright silly -- is just right for five- to nine-year-olds. Like all books in My First Acting Series, My First Scene Book is interactive, featuring pictures and discussion questions. It is easy to get your family and friends involved--what do they think? Do they agree or disagree? Jump into other lives and let your imagination soar! Parents and teachers, this is an excellent way to facilitate critical thinking and character building. Though the approach is sometimes zany and unconventional (shh--no one will know they're learning!), these scenes show real issues students may encounter, provoking lively, meaningful participation. Use it for story-time and drama, reading, writing, ethics, and art classes. Be creative and have fun!

Looking for illustrated kids book that shows kids about hard work, respecting the older, helping others, and growing up differently? Looking for a children's book to put at the top of your reading list? Welcome to Mr. Nate Books! Mr. Nate Books is a kids book collection that brings a world of all ages together with illustration, imagination, and instruction! Will the Weird Worker is the 8th book launched in the kid's book collection during Spring 2020 capturing the differences in how kids grow up. Some kids say to parents and teachers, "I don't want to!" Other kids learn to want to do the right thing, "I want to do this!" Kids can be easily distracted by a discouraging world that tempts their wills to "want" to do bad things or avoid maturity and character-building opportunities. When kids learn to "want" to do the right thing, they grow up "weird" or different. They might feel embarrassed since they are not like others, but the tables in life might turn where they become an example later on in life of how to grow up! BOOK DESCRIPTION: Looking for a great children's book? Enter Will's world to see how "weird" or different he is compared to those around him. Let kids discover how to become weird like Will! Some kids "want" to do whatever they want and some kids grow up weird like Will, wanting to do the right thing early in life. Are your kids growing up like Will? Are your kids ready for the world? Are your kids ready to grow up differently and become weird? Let's train up the next generation with a willingness to work and help others. Maybe the next generation will grow up to be humble and strong in character. Maybe the older generation truly becomes wise as young people learn from them! Imagine a world of young people growing up mature and loving - what a "weird" world that would be! EBOOK: Free eBook with purchase of paperback or hardback in certain retailers. After purchase, come back to the eBook edition to download. HOW TO USE THE BOOK: The book provides a helpful contrast for kids to see the difference between Will and other kids in his life. Use the book to provoke great teaching time as parents and teachers. Pastors and churches will discover the how the book's concepts come from the Bible, history, and real-time examples. The Bible's book of Proverbs addresses how kids are to be trained up and their hearts are to change along with their character and work. The book provides the connection between "wanting" to do something that's right and also acting accordingly. Use the reading questions at the end of the book to begin discussing with the kids.
