There are increasing numbers of children with little or no English entering English speaking mainstream lessons. This often leaves them with unique frustrations due to limited English language proficiency and disorientation. Teachers often feel unable to cater sufficiently for these new arrivals.
Teaching English as an Additional Language Ages 5-11 is designed to support every 5-11 year old child new to the English language who is beginning their education in an English speaking mainstream curriculum. It provides teachers with the tools needed to support young learners' survival language needs and help them achieve a smooth transition into their new learning environment.
Packed full of advice, guidance, resources and support for teachers managing beginners to the English language in the mainstream English speaking school, it also includes:
The text offers expert guidance on:
This flexible and user-friendly resource can be used with the English National Curriculum, International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), and other English speaking curricula. It will be a must-have for all schools looking to support newly arrived children with speaking English as an additional language.
It was half-past four o'clock (by the testimony of the land-surveyor, my authority for the particulars of this story, a gentleman with the faintest curve of humour on his lips); it was half-past four o'clock on a May morning in the eighteen forties. A dense white fog hung over the Valley of the Exe, ending against the hills on either side. But though nothing in the vale could be seen from higher ground, notes of differing kinds gave pretty clear indications that bustling life was going on there. This audible presence and visual absence of an active scene had a peculiar effect above the fog level. Nature had laid a white hand over the creatures ensconced within the vale, as a hand might be laid over a nest of chirping birds. The noises that ascended through the pallid coverlid were perturbed lowings, mingled with human voices in sharps and flats, and the bark of a dog.
Oxford Literacy has been designed specifically to support guided reading in the first three years of school. The Oxford Literacy fiction and non-fiction guided reading texts recognise that a guided reading group in a 'real' classroom never has every student on the same level; therefore, the texts and supporting teaching versions allow educators to work with small groups of students across a range of levels within their stage of reading.The teaching version for each text scaffolds the educator through the guided reading session. The focus is on developing students' ability to use meaning, structure and visual information, to read the supporting visual literacy, and it also includes links to the Oxford Wordlist.For more information about the Oxford Wordlist, go to www.oup.com.au/thesuccessfulteacher or www.oxfordwordlist.com.
This text provides a state of the art overview of tools for guiding surgeons in the modern operating room. The text explains how many modalities in the current armamentarium of radiologic imaging have been brought to the operating room for real time use. It also explains the current use of near infrared, fluorescent, and chemo-luminescent imaging to guide minimally invasive and open surgery to improve outcome. The book is separated into two sections. The first, discusses the biologic principles that underlie novel visualization of normal organs and pathology. The currently available equipment and equipment anticipated in the near future is covered. The second section summarizes current clinical applications of advanced imaging and visualization in the OR. Novel means of visualizing normal anatomic structures such as nerves, bile duct, and vessels that enhance safety of many operations are covered. Novel biologic imaging using radio-labeled and fluorescent-labeled molecular probes that allow identification of inflammation, vascular abnormalities, and cancer are also discussed.
Authored by scientists who pioneer research in optics and radiology, tool makers who use this knowledge to make surgical equipment, and surgeons who innovate the field of surgery using these new operative tools,Imaging and Visualization in the Modern Operating Room is a valuable guide for surgeons, residents and fellows entering the field.
