Assisted bibliotherapy: effective, efficient treatment for moderate anxiety problems. (1/29)

Specific psychological treatments of proven effectiveness for moderate anxiety disorders are not often easily accessible in general practice. In this study, selected patients were supported in learning skills to manage their symptoms. This approach was efficient, acceptable, and led to clinically significant symptom reduction for a high proportion of patients. This improvement was well sustained at three-month follow-up.  (+info)

Bereaved children. (2/29)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the unique aspects of childhood grief. To provide a framework for family physicians to use in assisting children to grieve. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: A MEDLINE search from 1966 to 1999 using the key words children, childhood, grief, mourning, and bereavement revealed mainly expert opinion articles, some non-randomized observational studies, and retrospective case-control studies. MAIN MESSAGE: Although children are influenced by similar factors and need to work through the same tasks of grief as adults, their unique psychological defences and evolving cognitive and emotional development make their grieving different from adults'. Understanding these unique childhood features will allow family physicians to more effectively help children through the tasks of acknowledging a death, working through the pain of that death, and accommodating it. CONCLUSIONS: With a framework for grief counseling that incorporates unique features of children's mourning, family physicians will be in a better position to assist their young bereaved patients.  (+info)

Reducing therapist contact in cognitive behaviour therapy for panic disorder and agoraphobia in primary care: global measures of outcome in a randomised controlled trial. (3/29)

BACKGROUND: Panic disorder, with and without agoraphobia, is a prevalent condition presenting in general practice. Psychological treatments are effective but are limited by restricted availability. Interest has grown in methods by which the efficiency and thus availability of psychological treatments can be improved, with particular emphasis on reduced therapist contact formats. AIM: To evaluate the relative efficacy in a primary care setting of a cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) delivered at three levels of therapist contact: standard contact, minimum contact, and bibliotherapy. METHOD: A total of 104 patients were randomly allocated to receive standard therapist contact, minimum therapist contact or bibliotherapy, with 91 patients completing treatment. All patients received an identical treatment manual and were seen by the same psychologist therapist. Outcome was reported in terms of brief global ratings of severity of illness, change in symptoms, and levels of social disruption. These brief measures were chosen to be suitable for use in general practice and were used at treatment entry and endpoint. RESULTS: The standard therapist contact group had the strongest and most comprehensive treatment response, showing significant differences from the bibliotherapy group on all, and the minimum therapist contact group on some, endpoint measures. Some reduction in efficacy was therefore found for the reduced therapist contact groups. CONCLUSION: The standard therapist contact group showed the greatest treatment efficacy in the present study. As it was of notably shorter duration than many other current formulations of CBT, it represents a useful and efficient treatment for panic disorder and agoraphobia in primary care.  (+info)

Bibliotherapy: the therapeutic use of didactic and literary texts in treatment, diagnosis, prevention, and training. (4/29)

The term bibliotherapy has been defined by Russell and Shrodes as "a process of dynamic interaction between the personality of the reader and literature--an interaction which may be used for personality assessment, adjustment, and growth." In the clinical setting, the dynamics that promote change in a patient-reader can include identification, projection, introjection, catharsis, and insight. Clinicians may use bibliotherapy as a tool for patient treatment, medical diagnosis, and the prevention of illness related to psychosocial dysfunction, allowing for gradual and mutual insight into patient complaints over time. Bibliotherapy may display efficacy on intellectual, psychosocial, interpersonal, emotional, and behavioral levels. The author identifies two basic types of resources that are useful to clinicians administering bibliotherapy: didactic texts, which are instructive, and imaginative literature, which can be a literary text, biography, or autobiography and fosters an imaginative response from the patient-reader. The author identifies the advantages and risks of using bibliotherapy and explores its possible applications in osteopathic medical education, encouraging osteopathic medical educators to familiarize themselves with this treatment modality.  (+info)

Brief report: a "storybook" ending to children's bedtime problems--the use of a rewarding social story to reduce bedtime resistance and frequent night waking. (5/29)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and acceptability of a social story with tangible rewards to reduce children's disruptive bedtime behavior and frequent night waking. METHOD: Four children (ages 2 to 7), with clinically significant disruptive bedtime behavior, received the intervention, which consisted of a social story (The Sleep Fairy) that sets forth (a) parental expectations for appropriate bedtime behavior and (b) rewards for meeting those expectations. RESULTS: Parent sleep diaries indicated that children had a 78% average decrease in frequency of disruptive bedtime behaviors from baseline to intervention, with another 7% decrease at 3-month follow-up. Night wakings, a problem for 2 children during baseline, were not a problem during intervention and follow-up. Parents reported improved daytime behavior for 3 of the 4 children. Parents gave the intervention high acceptability ratings and maintained a high level of treatment fidelity. CONCLUSIONS: Use of a social story helped parents implement a multicomponent intervention using a familiar bedtime routine, thereby increasing the likelihood that implementation and effects occurred. The book format makes this intervention widely available to parents and professionals, with minimal costs and inconvenience.  (+info)

Medicus Deus: a review of factors affecting hospital library services to patients between 1790-1950. (6/29)

QUESTION: What are some of the historical societal, medical, and public health trends leading to today's provision of hospital library services to patients? DATA SOURCES: Literature from the archives of the Bulletin of the Medical Library Association and other library sources, medical journals, primary historical documents, and texts from the history of medicine form the core of this review. STUDY SELECTION: The period of review extends from about 1790 through 1950 and focuses solely on trends in the United States. Of primary concern are explicitly documented examples that appear to illustrate the patient-physician relationship and those between librarians and their patient-patrons during the earliest years of the profession's development. DATA EXTRACTION: An historical timeline was created to allow the identification of major trends that may have affected library services. Multiple literature searches were conducted using library, medical, and health anthropology resources. When possible, primary sources were preferred over reviews. MAIN RESULTS: Juxtapositioning historical events allows the reader to obtain an overview of the roots of consumer health services in medical libraries and to consider their potential legacy in today's health care libraries. CONCLUSION: This review article highlights early developments in hospital library service to patients. Further research is needed to verify a preliminary conclusion that in some medical library settings, services to the general public are shaped by the broader health care environment as it has evolved.  (+info)

Randomized trial of a brief depression prevention program: an elusive search for a psychosocial placebo control condition. (7/29)

This trial compared a brief group cognitive-behavioral (CBT) depression prevention program to a waitlist control condition and four placebo or alternative interventions. High-risk adolescents with elevated depressive symptoms (N=225, M age=18, 70% female) were randomized to CBT, supportive-expressive group intervention, bibliotherapy, expressive writing, journaling, or waitlist conditions and completed assessments at baseline, termination, and 1- and 6-month follow-up. All five active interventions showed significantly greater reductions in depressive symptoms at termination than waitlist controls; effects for CBT and bibliotherapy persisted into follow-up. CBT, supportive-expressive, and bibliotherapy participants also showed significantly greater decreases in depressive symptoms than expressive writing and journaling participants at certain follow-up points. Findings suggest there may be multiple ways to reduce depressive symptoms in high-risk adolescents, although expectancies, demand characteristics, and attention may have contributed to the observed effects.  (+info)

Treatment of social phobia through pure self-help and therapist-augmented self-help. (8/29)

BACKGROUND: Self-help for social phobia has not received controlled empirical evaluation. AIMS: To evaluate the efficacy of pure self-help through written materials for severe social phobia and self-help augmented by five group sessions with a therapist. These conditions were compared with a waiting-list control and standard, therapist-led group therapy. METHOD: Participants with severe generalised social phobia (n=224) were randomised to one of four conditions. Assessment included diagnoses, symptoms and life interference at pretreatment, 12 weeks and at 24 weeks. RESULTS: A larger percentage of patients no longer had a diagnosis of social phobia at post-intervention in the pure self-help group than in the waiting-list group, although this percentage decreased slightly over the next 3 months. Symptoms of social anxiety and life interference did not differ significantly between these groups. Augmented self-help was better than waiting list on all measures and did not differ significantly from group treatment. CONCLUSIONS: Self-help augmented by therapist assistance shows promise as a less resource-intensive method for the management of social phobia. Pure self-help shows limited efficacy for this disorder.  (+info)

The current study evaluates a depression prevention program for adolescents led by psychologists vs. teachers in comparison to a control. The universal school-based prevention program has shown its efficacy in several studies when implemented by psychologists. The current study compares the effects of the program as implemented by teachers versus that implemented by psychologists under real-life conditions. A total of 646 vocational track 8th grade students from Germany participated either in a universal prevention program, led by teachers (n = 207) or psychologists (n = 213), or a teaching-as-usual control condition (n = 226). The design includes baseline, post-intervention, and follow-up (at 6 and 12 months post-intervention). The cognitive-behavioral program includes 10 sessions held in a regular school setting in same-gender groups and is based on the social information-processing model of social competence. Positive intervention effects were found on the change in girls depressive symptoms up to
A randomized controlled trial was conducted among a potential high-risk group of 1,343 adolescents from low-income areas in The Netherlands to test the effectiveness of the depression prevention program Op Volle Kracht (OVK) as provided by teachers in a school setting. The results showed no main effect of the program on depressive symptoms at one-year follow-up. A moderation effect was found for parental psychopathology; adolescents who had parents with psychopathology and received the OVK program had less depressive symptoms compared to adolescents with parents with psychopathology in the control condition. No moderating effects on depressive symptoms were found for gender, ethnical background, and level of baseline depressive symptoms. An iatrogenic effect of the intervention was found on the secondary outcome of clinical depressive symptoms. Based on the low level of reported depressive symptoms at baseline, it seems that our sample might not meet the characteristics of a high-risk selective group
Childrens literature can be a powerful way to encourage and empower EFL students but is less commonly used in the classroom than adult literature. This text provides a comprehensive introduction to childrens and young adult literature in EFL teaching. It demonstrates the complexity of childrens literature and how it can encourage an active community of second language readers: with multilayered picturebooks, fairy tales, graphic novels and radical young adult fiction. It examines the opportunities of childrens literature in EFL teacher education, including: the intertexuality of childrens literature as a gate-opener for canonised adult literature; the rich patterning of childrens literature supporting Creative Writing; the potential of interactive drama projects. Close readings of texts at the centre of contemporary literary scholarship, yet largely unknown in the EFL world, provide an invaluable guide for teacher educators and student teachers, including works by David Almond, Anthony ...
The internet is a feasible and powerful tool in delivering community based health interventions. The studys hypotheses were confirmed, with the exception that depression literacy was found to be as effective as cognitive behaviour therapy in reducing symptoms of depression. The mechanisms for this effect are unclear, although research from general practice15 indicates higher recovery rates in patients who receive educational material. The size of the treatment effect in patients with a clinical level of symptoms (pre-post effect of 0.9 for cognitive behaviour therapy) was comparable, although smaller than brief cognitive therapy assisted by a therapist, self directed manualised computer therapy, and bibliotherapy, where pre-post effect sizes have ranged from about 0.70 to 1.20 standard deviation units for mixed or depressed samples.16 17 Computer assisted cognitive behaviour therapy in general practice has produced pre-post effect sizes of approximately 1.20.7 The lower effect size in our study ...
Mood Disorders. Anxiety. Anxiety disorders involve a state of distressing chronic but fluctuating nervousness that is inappropriately severe for the persons circumstances. Anxiety disorders affect over three million Americans each year. According to The Acupuncture Evidence Project, acupuncture has moderate evidence supporting the effectiveness of treating anxiety. Acupuncture can be safely combined conventional treatments such as medication or psycho-educational therapy, possibly enhancing their beneficial effects and reducing unwanted side effects.. Acupuncture can often be effective for treating anxiety even in people who are "non-responders" to cognitive behavioral therapy, bibliotherapy, and medication. In one study, non-responders were given one course of ten acupuncture treatments. They showed significant improvement on the Anxiety Inventory Score and their improvement was maintained for ten weeks after the acupuncture treatments. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25595195 It is ...
Expressive therapies are effective in treating students suffering from stress reactions. Play therapy aids in initial assessment and helps children communicate concerns and feelings in a developmentally appropriate and non-threatening way as well as promoting healing. Sand tray therapy helps children and adolescents resolve traumas through expression of fantasies, helps them develop a sense of mastery and control, allows for "working through" pent-up feelings, and soothes and nurtures students through tactile/touch sense. Art therapy not only provides valuable assessment data for the counselor but it naturally allows students of all ages to better understand themselves. Through art, children and adolescents are provided the opportunity to express thoughts and feelings they would not necessarily acknowledge openly. Puppetry allows young children to speak through puppets, providing a non-threatening venue. Bibliotherapy encourages free expression of problems and concerns that are frequently ...

Left Out presents an alternative and corrective history of writing for children in the first half of the twentieth century. Between 1910 and 1949 a number of British publishers, writers, and illustrators included childrens literature in their efforts to make Britain a progressive, egalitarian, and modern society. Some came from privileged backgrounds, others from the poorest parts of the poorest cities in the land; some belonged to the metropolitan intelligentsia or bohemia, others were working-class autodidacts, but all sought to use writing for children and young people to create activists, visionaries, and leaders among the rising generation.Together, they produced a significant number of both politically and aesthetically radical publications for children and young people. This "radical childrens literature" was designed to ignite and underpin the work of making a new Britain for a new kind of Briton. While there are many dedicated studies of childrens literature and childrens writers ...

This may be the most controversial post Ive written. Never the less, this is our story..... I recently posted a question on Facebook asking for ideas on how to get Stevie to stop throwing things down the stairs. Amidst several creative, problem solving ideas, were some more traditional suggestions that I "just spank him". After all, it is a direct disobedience of the rules, right?. So, let me just "go there" for a minute.. The assumption is that spanking works, and that it is a reasonable punishment for direct disobedience.. While that may be true (although not publicly acceptable anymore) for some typically developing kids, it is not true for all kids, especially those on the spectrum.. For any punishment to work, there are 3 things that must be understood by the child, according to Bill Nason, MS, LLP: They must know that what they did was wrong, they must know what to do that is right in that situation, and they chose the wrong thing (which assumes they were able to choose the right thing, ...

Up until recently, we believed that one episode of depressive illness had a fifty percent lifetime risk of returning. Recent research indicates the risk is probably higher than that.. Having had two episodes of depressive illness brings with it an even higher risk of a further episode of depressive illness, being approximately seventy five per cent.. Having three or more episodes of depressive illness in ones lifetime makes it almost inevitable that a further episode of depressive illness will return.. Your brain learns to repeat depression. While depressive illness is a stress-induced break down in your chemistry, it also involves changes in the electrical pathways within your brain. Our brain is continuously learning, and we believe the brain also learns inappropriate electrical patterns, such as people who get repeated epileptic seizures. We also believe that having prolonged and / or repeated episodes of depression teaches your brain to more easily allow the illness to return, and ...
Make Way for Ducklings is a childrens picture book written and illustrated by Robert McCloskey. First published in 1941, the book tells the story of a pair of mallard ducks who decide to raise their family on an island in the lagoon in the Boston Public Garden, a park in the center of Boston, Massachusetts. Make Way for Ducklings won the 1942 Caldecott Medal for McCloskeys illustrations, executed in charcoal then lithographed on zinc plates. Although the book was originally criticized for having a loose plot and poor characterization, it remains popular worldwide even sixty years after its first publication primarily for the enhancing illustrations and effective pacing. The books popularity has led to the sale of over two million copies and the construction of a statue in the Public Garden of the mother duck and her eight ducklings ...

First, books and activities must help children learn THE WORLD IN SPATIAL TERMS such as how to use maps and other geographic representations, how to analyze the spatial organization of people, places, and environments on Earths surface. Second, kids need to know about PLACES AND REGIONS, more specifically that people create regions to interpret Earths complexity and that the physical and human characteristics of places are vitally important. Third, young readers need to understand PHYSICAL SYSTEMS such as the physical processes that shape the patterns of Earths surface. Fourth, children should be aware of HUMAN SYSTEMS such as the patterns and networks of economic interdependence on Earths surface and how human actions modify the physical environment. Fifth, children should recognize that the ENVIRONMENT AND SOCIETY includes the changes that occur in the meaning, use, distribution, and importance of resources and sixth THE USES OF GEOGRAPHY, most importantly how to apply geography to ...

As I kid, I was scared of monsters. Specifically, the Star Trek Salt-Vampire and Hans Christian Andersons Death, sitting on the Emperors chest. (I slept on my side for years after reading "The Nightingale." Death couldnt get you, I reasoned, if you declined him a seat.) But I was never afraid of the monsters in Where the Wild Things Are, the best-known book by Maurice Sendak, who died on Tuesday ...

Yesterday we all went as a family to a great BBQ place. We dont do much as a family of five any more. The boys have their own schedules, and our small cars are pretty crowded with us of us in them, but I felt determined after this past week of horrors to do something as a family. It at first seemed like it was going to be a disaster. After we ordered, I asked Janey where she wanted to sit, and she tried to lead me out the door. I made her come back, and we sat down, but she started to get upset. I decided to take her back out until the food came. As we walked around outside, I explained what would happen---"Its a meat restaurant. They are going to bring us lots of meat and some cucumbers and some spinach and some rice. Well have lots to eat" Its the kind of thing I always hear recommended for kids with autism, like a social story, but in the past, when I told them, it had no impact. This time, it somehow clicked. We went back in, and Janey sat quite nicely and ate. It helped that the food ...

I started writing for children at the end of 2005 when I decided to apply to The Institute of Childrens Literature. I never dreamed about becoming a childrens writer, or an editor for that matter, I just kinda fell into it. My daughter was just barely under a year old and I was looking for something to do. I thought I would write here and there for childrens magazines in my spare time while I stayed home and raised my two kids. I was so use to working full time as a buyer I just didnt know what to do staying home all day long. I wasnt use to it. I found as I continued through the course at the ICL how much I really enjoyed writing for children. I wasnt a straight A student by any means in English class, so my family thought it was quite funny when they heard what I was doing with my spare time. However, I stuck to it and my instructor really encouraged me. It wasnt until after I published my very first short story at Fandangle Magazine in 2006 while I was only on the third assignment with ...

Classic childrens literature is more than books to read. Its stories that stay with a child, impart lessons, & change how they view the world.
Quite out of the blue (in 2008), I got a mail from a senior Editor from Puffin (Penguins childrens list) - who seemed to like some of the posts I had written on childrens literature in Bengali.

Data is all around us, from the output of your Fitbit to interactive maps that track voters to the latest visualization of the New York Times front page. With the rise of mobile devices and wearable technology, data is more available to general audiences, and the amount being generated has also exploded. According to IBM, 90 percent of the worlds data has been created in the last two years.. This vast pool of information is being used to advocate for change, justify decisions, and suggest personal action plans-such as the U.S. Department of Educations College Scorecard, which offers students data to help them choose a college. It is vital that our students understand and interpret the data, infographics, and visualizations they encounter.. One reason data literacy is vital is that "[i]n what some are calling a post-truth world, students seem to focus on numbers a lot," says Jo Angela Oehrli, learning librarian/childrens literature librarian at the University of Michigan Libraries.

Who would have thought a good little girl like you could destroy my beautiful wickedness?" -The Wicked Witch of the West. Okay, who out there has never rooted for the bad guy? (You in the back, put your hand down. Ive seen your Loki desktop wallpaper, you so-called goody-goody!) Much as we say we want the good guys to win in the end, lets face it: good can be boring. Good has to follow the rules. Good is hard-working. Modest. Clean-cut. Strait-laced. Narrow. Predictable. Like I said... BORING. The really interesting characters are the ones who are willing to step outside the lines... or draw their own.. Who writes these "rules," anyway? Why do they always favor the so-called "good guys"? While some villains do revel unabashedly in their evilness (because hel-LO, its FUN), many villains are victims of circumstance, outcasts seeking the justice that has been denied them. Its a tradition that goes back to childrens literature; The Wizard of Oz is a perfect example. "Good girl" Dorothy Gales ...
For those of us who write for children, one question pops up all the time: why kids and not adults? Sometimes this is an internal question, sometimes its meant as a thought-provoking question, and other times its asked because the choice to write for kids seems inexplicible to the asker. I am asking here on the blog for another reason: at an upcoming SCBWI Schmooze I co-run, the question of "why write for children?" is part of the topic. I thought since many of you GottaBook visitors write (and illustrate) in the childrens literature field, it would be interesting to hear from yall. I hope youll leave your reasons here in the comments, on your own blogs, or send them to me via e-mail. Ill compile the comments and links and use them as conversation starters and, I suspect, inspiration for many ...

Audio therapy is the clinical use of recorded sound, music, or spoken words, or a combination thereof, recorded on a physical medium such as a compact disc (CD), or a digital file, including those formatted as MP3, which patients or participants play on a suitable device, and to which they listen with intent to experience a subsequent beneficial physiological, psychological, or social effect. Audio therapy synthesises elements from a number of discreet areas of research and practice, including receptive music therapy, bibliotherapy, creative visualization, guided imagery, guided meditation, sound healing, and cognitive behavioral therapy. The term "receptive music therapy" denotes a process by which patients or participants listen to music with specific intent to therapeutically benefit; and is a term used by therapists to distinguish it from "active music therapy" by which patients or participants engage in producing vocal or instrumental music. Receptive music therapy is an effective ...

Its no coincidence that the 19th centurys invention of the concept of childhood as we know it also saw a flowering of literature written for children. Before that magical century, reading material considered suitable for children was limited to Aesops fables and a few collections of fairy tales, many of them aimed, fable-like, at adults. Then, with a suddenness that rivaled the explosion of novels for adults in the previous century, childrens literature - stories written for children, dealing with their concerns seriously and with as much artistry as literature for adults -- burst on the scene ...
Postpartum depression (PPD) occurs in approximately 10% to 16% of mothers who have recently delivered babies. The impact of PPD is profound, causing considerable emotional pain for the mother as well as possible disturbances in infant development and later child adjustment. If left untreated, the mothers depression may cause strain on family life and her relationship with her child. Further research is needed to discover treatments to effectively reduce the risk of experiencing PPD. Despite preliminary findings that suggest that psychosocial treatments may prevent postpartum mood disturbances, few studies have examined the effects of preventive therapy to reduce PPD in women at risk for PPD. An area of even greater neglect is the testing of such a treatment for financially disadvantaged women, who represent a group at high risk for PPD and a group less likely to access treatment for depression than middle-class women. The Postpartum Prevention Program (PPP), an interpersonal therapy program ...

I doubt that the imagination can be suppressed. If you truly eradicated it in a child, he would grow up to be an eggplant. Like all our evil propensities, the imagination will out. But if it is rejected and despised, it will grow into wild and weedy shapes; it will be deformed. At its best, it will be mere ego-centered daydreaming; at its worst, it will be wishful thinking, which is a very dangerous occupation when it is taken seriously. ...

The alarming rise in prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) among adolescents and young adults poses an enormous public health burden. Insulin resistance (IR) is a major physiological precursor to T2D. Depressive symptoms are associated with IR in adolescents and adults, predict adult-onset T2D, and contribute to increased risk for T2D mortality and morbidity. Depressive symptoms theoretically induce IR by promoting stress-induced behaviors (altered eating, lowered fitness) and upregulating physiological stress mechanisms (cortisol, NPY).. Psychotherapy for depression improves IR in adults, but it is unknown if ameliorating depressive symptoms prevents progression of IR in adolescents at risk for T2D. The aims of this protocol are: 1) to assess the effects of a 6-week cognitive-behavioral (CB) depression prevention group (the Blues Program) vs. a 6-week standard-of-care health education (HE) group on reducing depressive symptoms and improving IR in adolescent girls at risk for T2D; 2) to assess the ...
Aside from having read childrens books to my younger sister and cousins, and then my own kids, I actually took a class in childrens literature in college, much to my parents joy. Also, there are tons of lists about which books to read to your kids, but no lists of the ones not to. I know for many of you Oy!sters, Im probably ripping on some of your favorite childhood stories, but try to bear with me-I mean this all in good fun. 1. "Goodnight Moon" by Margaret Wise Brown It starts off fine, with a list of things in a childs room. Although, why a "great green room"? Arent kids bedrooms small and cozy? And is no one upset at the "mouse" loose in a babys room? If its a pet, why isnt it caged? Anyway, the book has a simple task- relist all of these things and say goodnight to them to help a child ease from wakefulness to slumber. But it fails in this task. It adds things that were not listed at first: light, clocks, socks, stars, air, the Moon itself. It leaves out the telephone, the very ...

Digital Curation Many teachers would like to use more diverse literature in the classroom. But with a brand new class each year, its easy to fall back on read-alouds and literature circle picks that have worked in the past. As librarians, we can make our colleagues aware of the lack of diversity in childrens literature and invite them to be advocates of variety. One way to do this is to make resources easily available to them. I use Livebinders (www.livebinders.com), a virtual collection of resources formatted much like a physical binder with tabs and subtabs. I can imbed my binders in the library link of our schools homepage, or share the link with staff only. Heres an example of one binder Ive started to put together that contains resources for teaching middle grade books about the immigration experience in the U.S.: http://www.livebinders.com/play/play?id=821829 . For each book, Ive created a tab for authors websites, any teaching materials or curriculum guides, interviews, book ...
According to the statements made by a number of scholars, in the 80s East African Anglophone novel, which once received a nickname of "social documentary", began to lose gradually its social commitment. Many of the writers known previously as the most active supporters of the social trend, moved their attempts to other literan areas - criminal novel ("Weapon of hunger" by Meja Mцangi, 1989), love story (Yussuf Dawoods "Off my chest", 1988), even childrens literature (books for children in Gikuyu, written by Ngugi wa Thiongo). However, in the late 80s and early 90s East African Anglophone novel stepped onto a new level of social trend, moving from "social documentary" to "social epic". The authors now are trying to sum up the historical experience of East African countries over a large time span, and to that effect appeal mostly to elaborate and spacious literary forms, such as epic novel. These authors, although chosen one and the same literary form, are showing clearly their inclinations ...

My research in gambling over a decade was summarized in a presentation in Oslo, Norway in 2009, at the 11th European Congress of Psychology, titled "Beliefs in Gambling Behavior."

Another interest involves humans biggest gamble of all, the fate of the planet or sustainability. I have studied attitudes toward the environment in media and childrens literature.

The feral children literature has frequently been cited for relevance to understanding historical antecedents of autism. Kaspar Hauser, who appeared in Nuremberg, Germany in 1828, is one of these children, raised under conditions of extreme deprivation. His case history and gradual acquisition of language after age 17 years are summarized. There is strong evidence that he was the prince of Baden, abducted from his cradle in 1812. Findings of postmortem examination, conducted after his assassination, are discussed. Hausers postadolescent recovery of language contradicts the notion of a "critical period" for language development ...
In some ethiopic languages there is a punctuation mark called the temherte slaq that serves to denote sarcasm at the end of a sentence. now i dont know anything about the structure in ethiopic languages, but the idea of a sarcasm mark is … huh, interesting.. According to the document, Roadmap to Extension of the Ethiopic Writing System Standard Under Writing Code ISO-10646:. "Graphically indistinguishable from U+00A1 (R) Temherte Slaq differs in semantic use in Ethiopia. Temherte Slaq will come at the end of a sentence (vs at the beginning in Spanish use) and is used to indicate an unrealphrase, often sarcastical in editorial cartoons. Temherte Slaq is also important in childrens literature and inpoetic use. Debate is needed among Ethiopian scholars to determine if inverted exclamation mark is acceptable.". John Greenman jokingly talked about introducing a sarcasm symbol in a 2004 Slate article, A Giant Step Forward to Punctuation, which uses symbol very effectively to highlight how ...
I am entering down a new path in my journey as an educator, currently working as a visiting lecturer in the Psychology and Education Department of Mount Holyoke College. One of the best parts (prior to meeting my preservice teachers today!) is creating the syllabi for two classes, Teaching English Language Learners and Childrens Literature for Educators. As I tweak assignments and reflect on reading, Im contemplating one big guiding question: How do we teach not only the content for our courses, but shine the light on the most important tenet of education: WHO we teach?. I think of the words of two wise educators: Sarah Wessling and Jessica Cuthbertson. Sarah, a National Board Certified Teacher and the 2010 National Teacher of the Year, speaks of how we need to focus on a main component in every classroom: that it is not what we teach, but who we teach. It is the students in front of us that matter the most. And Jessica, a teacherpreneur and talented middle school teacher, relayed a beautiful ...

He idolizes his teacher. She really seems to understand him and provides the conditions he needs to succeed. The major impediments to his classroom function are his poor handwriting and the frustration he has with it and his perfectionism. At school, P receives O.T. for handwriting/fine motor skills as well as to help him with sitting still at meeting times. He also works with the school psychologist on social stories and relaxation strategies. Our largest struggle now is the relationship P. has with his younger brother, E. It is often volatile and E. is often the instigator. He is socially savvy and at age 4 knew his brothers buttons and how to push them. ...
There are many ways to interpret the story. Despite of the recognition it has received, this book is also well-known as one of the most "divisive" books in childrens literature.My view, its a beautiful story of unconditional love between a tree and a boy, in which the tree is generous and gives all of itself to help the boy whenever he is in trouble. The metaphor in this case is that of a mother and a child, or God and a human, or even nature versus human. ...
Theres this story I like to tell about my introducing "literature" to my children. It involves my eldest. He must have been two. I had bought a copy of Maurice Sendaks classic, Where the Wild Things Are, to read to him at bed time. I was so proud of myself, suddenly eligible to join the cult of NPRents simply by reading classic Western childrens literature to my children. My eldest seemed to enjoy the story but then one night he asked me to stop. It seems my venture into classic Western childhood storytelling was scaring the wits out of him! Where Max welcomed the Wild Things and became their king, my child hide from them under his covers after I turned off the lights. And so I learned it wasnt the "Terrible Twos" causing him to be a "wild thing" - It was the lack of sleep from being so frightened at night!. Needless to say I stopped reading Where the Wild Things Are to him at night. I think we settled on the manic hijinx of The Cat in the Hat instead.. I like the notion of "picture books as ...

Great childrens literature can still be included in the "read aloud" component of the day. This is a must in the inclusion classroom -- many kids will be unable to read age-appropriate or challenging books, but can certainly understand them and gain a lot of vocabulary and background knowledge if the teacher reads excellent stories aloud. Not only fictional classics from The Wind in the Willows to Lassie Come Home, but also non-fiction pieces about science, history, biography. I found kids were fascinated by tales of unsolved mysteries (the Mary Celeste, the disappearance of Amelia Earhart), famous disasters (the Hindenberg, the Black Death, the Titanic), natural catastrophes (volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis) and these often sparked kids to do research and reading on their own. Sometimes participation in a class read-aloud gave a student with low literacy skills the opportunity to show superior reasoning and analysis ...
In recent years, girls studies, building on the work of feminist cultural studies scholars, has emerged as an important field in its own right. In this substantial collection, editors Clare Bradford and Mavis Reimer emphasize [End Page 120] that girls studies is less a "discipline in itself than a set of questions about the cultural functions of girls" that are taken up by a range of scholars (4). Their introduction lucidly and persuasively traces the trajectory of two divergent fields, childrens literature and girls studies, affirming that they have much in common, not only in their marginalization from mainstream academic disciplines but also in the way that this marginalization relates to wider cultural ideas about girls. Crucially, this book aims to bring scholars in these fields together, emphasizing the diversity of girls experiences and the necessity of treating girlhood as more than a preliminary phase through which girls pass on the way to becoming women.. The title itself ...

What seems to me to be significant about this small adventure, and why I mention it here, is that it neatly encapsulates one of the things that really works about the Harry Potter books. When addressing this age group, other writers might be tempted to do a bit of analyzing or moralizing here. How is Harry dealing with the rejection of his living family? How does it affect him emotionally? How is he dealing with being suddenly alone? Not only does Rowling avoid this, she doesnt even appear to be tempted.
