Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : 'Home-educators want to provide a high quality learning experience for their children and this handbook is an excellent resource for making this aspiration a reality' - Dr Adam Boddison, Chief Executive of National Association of Special Educational Needs If you are thinking of home educating your child, your initial surprise may be at how easy it is to turn intention into reality. Once you have deregistered your child, you are largely left to get on with delivering education from home, as you see best. This book is full of practical guidance for parents, based on the authors' long experience of working with children and young people; their parents, teachers and schools. It will help you plan what is taught, as well as when and how. The authors not only consider how to benefit from the opportunities home education provides, but also suggest creative ways to fill the potential gaps that might arise from not being part of the traditional school system. The Home Education Handbook covers everything from the socialisation of home-educated children to advice on supporting the motivation and resilience of all involved. This is a book that every parent who is considering home education or flexi-schooling, or is simply keen to ensure that their child gets the best education possible, needs to read.

Help is however at hand. This completely revised and updated edition of a parenting classic is full of advice to help teenagers, their parents and the rest of the family. It offers a wealth of sound advice plus tried and tested strategies for every aspect of life with a teen - from alcohol to cyberbullying, sexting to household chores - which you can put into practice immediately.

Book excerpt/synopsis : As a distinct area of literary study, Asian American literature now enjoys a level of critical recognition that was unimaginable when academic interest in the field began modestly some 25 years ago.

This reference book provides alphabetically arranged entries for 70 Asian American novelists. Each entry is written by an expert contributor and provides a short biography, a discussion of major works and themes, an overview of the novelist's critical reception, and a bibliography of primary and secondary sources. In addition, the volume concludes with a selected, general bibliography.
Download PDF or read online Later! Book by Gill Hines and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2014-09-04 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : One minute you are taking your child to school, the next they're turning into a young adult. It may seem like only months since you were first filling your child's lunch box, but the school career moves with such momentum that it isn't long before they are facing the challenges of further education, job hunting and living independently. This new book will help you to encourage self-reliance in your nearly grown children and prepare them for independence in the real world. It also shows how you can prepare for a time when your child's excitement at the prospect of leaving school, going to university or just living on their own leaves you feeling passed over and obsessed by detail they see as unimportant. How do you start to think about what to do with the rest of your life - picking up on ambitions, both personal and professional, and prioritising your own friends and interests? And how do you handle the situation when, as is increasingly common, children later decide to return home to live? This book addresses current issues such as boomerang kids, sofa syndrome and how to motivate, money management for a generation disinclined to save, the hotel of Mum and Dad, and much more. Later! is an empathetic guide to making sense of life at a time when all the ground rules need to be reconsidered, if not renegotiated. Packed with strategies, exercises and question-and-answer sections, Later! is user-friendly and entirely practical. It considers the hopes and plans of parents and children alike and, in the process, demonstrates how to 'move on' while sustaining a supportive, happy relationship.
Download PDF or read online Modernism in Design Book by Paul Greenhalgh and published by Reaktion Books. This book was released on 1997-07-01 with total page 256 pages.

Book excerpt/synopsis : Ten new and important essays on design cover Modernism's fortunes in Germany, Italy, Sweden, Britain, Spain, Belgium and the USA; they range in subject matter from world fairs and everyday domestic objects to American West coast architecture and French and Italian furniture. With essays by Tim Benton, Gillian Naylor, Penny Sparke, Wendy Kaplan, Clive Wainwright, Martin Gaughan, Guy Julier, Mimi Wilms, Julian Holder and Paul Greenhalgh. "The object of this book is to diffuse myths. If modernism has, in the past, been both absurdly praised and absurdly damned, Modernism in Design seeks to lift it out of this cycle, and to demonstrate that the modern movement could offer neither Jerusalem nor Babylon ... In this, the book succeeds admirably."—Designer's Journal "While this collection of essays is aimed primarily at design historians and students of design history, hard-pressed practising designers and architects should make room for it on their bookshelves."—Design

Download PDF or read online Modern Architectural Theory Book by Harry Francis Mallgrave and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2009-07-13 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Modern Architectural Theory is the first book to provide a comprehensive survey of architectural theory, primarily in Europe and the United States, during three centuries of development. In this synthetic overview, Harry Mallgrave examines architectural discourse within its social and political context. He explores the philosophical and conceptual evolution of its ideas, discusses the relation of theory to the practice of building, and, most importantly, considers the words of the architects themselves, as they contentiously shaped Western architecture. He also examines the compelling currents of French rationalist and British empiricist thought, radical reformation of the theory during the Enlightenment, the intellectual ambitions and historicist debates of the nineteenth century, and the distinctive varieties of modern theory in the twentieth century up to the profound social upheaval of the 1960s. Modern Architectural Theory challenges many assumptions about architectural modernism and uncovers many new dimensions of the debates about modernism.
