This Book Is Not about Drama...

release date: Jan 01, 2012
This Book Is Not about Drama...
" Part food for thought, part instruction manual, part stories and scripts to explore, and part encouragement to recharge, this practical book offers a comprehensive approach to using role play and discussion to build meaningful language experiences. It explores issues around storytelling, silent speech, writing, and imagination and shows teachers how to be effective observers and support the deeper meaning that comes from working inside and outside the text. This authoritative resource is full of simple strategies and texts that have been chosen for their ability to engage students, get them out of their chairs, and let them learn actively and socially. The strategies begin with simple games, and evolve into more complex learning opportunities. The model texts give teachers a great place to start, and anecdotes from real classrooms put them into context. These classroom glimpses illustrate the real power that students can bring to their learning as they share within groups and find ways to involve their audience."--Publisher.

Bob Barton tracesthe 175 year-old relationship between railways, refreshment rooms and the brewingindustry through this guide covering everything from main line termini to rural branchline halts. It includes the growing phenomenon of steam hauled Ale Trains onheritage railways, and features reproductions of pump-clips of railway themed beers.The book will appeal to railway enthusiasts as well as both armchair and actualtravellers (the places featured can all be visited, most of them by train as well as bycar) in addition to real ale lovers and those who like their nostalgia infused with thesight or spirit of steam trains.

Safety, Risk and Adventure in Outdoor Activities
'"Bureaucracy is the reason for the decline in school trips". A statement often quoted. But it is a myth that there is a decline in school visits... It's competent people, not paperwork, that make visits safer' - Ian Park, ex-Chairman, Outdoor Education Advisers' Panel 'Every man and woman who is involved in the development or education of young people - however slightly - should be chained to one of the Barns of Bynack and not released until they have read this book cover to cover' - Alan Bantick, wildlife conservationist, lecturer, photographer and guide 'Bob Barton's balanced and well thought out book will help anyone involved with the planning and management of outdoor activities for young people. Bob explores the issues that need to be considered when developing and implementing outdoor policies and procedures, in an interesting and thought provoking style, drawing on his wealth of outdoor experience' - Peter Westgarth, Chief Executive, The Duke of Edinburgh's Award 'This book fills a gap which sorely needed filling. The safety versus adventure debate is discussed in a thoroughly refreshing way and should inspire a new generation of teachers and youth workers to take their charges into the great outdoors. The book should be required reading for every Health and Safety Officer throughout the land to improve their understanding of what Adventure Educators are trying to achieve' - Doug Jones, County Officer, Outdoor Education and Adventure Activities, Bedfordshire County Council 'A distillation of years of experience in adventure activities and an essential guide to getting the proper balance between adventure and safety' - Nick Barrett, Chief Executive of the Outward Bound Trust Providers of outdoor education must strike the right balance between adventure and security. Effective risk management enables providers to deliver lasting educational value without breaching their moral and legal duties of care.
