Learning to Trust: Transforming Difficult Elementary Classrooms Through Developmental Discipline
Faced with increasing numbers of children who are difficult to manage and the pervasive presence of high stakes testing, many teachers feel frustrated and compelled to reduce their attention to building relationships with and among their students and their focus on social and ethical development. In Learning to Trust, an educational psychologist and a classroom teacher collaborate to demonstrate through an in-depth case study of an inner-city classroom the power and importance of caring, trusting relationships for fostering children's academic growth as well as their social and ethical development.
Marilyn Watson explains and describes the ups and downs of Laura Ecken's classroom through the lens of attachment theory, while Laura describes in vivid detail the ongoing life of her classroom, revealing throughout her challenges, thoughts, fears, failures and successes. Together they explore a fundamentally new approach to classroom management and present many practical strategies for helping all children develop the social and emotional skills needed to live harmonious and productive lives, the self confidence and curiosity to invest wholeheartedly in learning, and the empathy and moral understanding to be caring and responsible young people.

Invisible Immigrants: The English in Canada since 1945 (Studies in Immigration and Culture)
Despite being one of the largest immigrant groups contributing to the development of modern Canada, the story of the English has been all but untold. In Invisible Immigrants, Barber and Watson document the experiences of English-born immigrants who chose to come to Canada during England’s last major wave of emigration between the 1940s and the 1970s. Engaging life story oral histories reveal the aspirations, adventures, occasional naïveté, and challenges of these hidden immigrants.

Postwar English immigrants believed they were moving to a familiar British country. Instead, like other immigrants, they found they had to deal with separation from home and family while adapting to a new country, a new landscape, and a new culture. Although English immigrants did not appear visibly different from their new neighbours, as soon as they spoke, they were immediately identified as “foreign.”

Barber and Watson reveal the personal nature of the migration experience and how socio-economic structures, gender expectations, and marital status shaped possibilities and responses. In postwar North America dramatic changes in both technology and the formation of national identities influenced their new lives and helped shape their memories. Their stories contribute to our understanding of postwar immigration and fill a significant gap in the history of English migration to Canada.

Caring: An Essential Human Need (Human Care and Health Series)

Caring: An Essential Human Need, contains the papers of the first three National Caring Conferences, presenting substantive ideas, theories, and research findings about care and caring.

Historically, nursing and other health science curricula have neglected the concept of care as a part of nursing. Limited research on care and caring and limited faculty interest have made care the unknown phenomenon of health. The National Caring Conferences were founded as a response to the lack of knowledge and limited research on the subject. The fifteen papers in this volume address the topics of the three conferences: The Phenomena and Nature of Caring, Analysis of Caring Behaviors and Processes, and Characteristics and Classification of Caring Phenomena.
