This is a practical handbook with many teaching suggestions - but it is also a source of inspiration.

The literature was reviewed and summarized to provide common interpretations of human figure drawings. Basic guidelines for interpreting human figure drawings (i.e., face and head, body, arms and hands, and legs and feet) are presented. Expectations for students at different developmental levels (ages 1 1/2 through adolescence) are identified, and the influence of artistic talent is discussed. Two children's drawings from case studies in a school setting are interpreted.
Head injury refers to trauma of the head. This may or may not include injury to the brain. However, the terms traumatic brain injury and head injury are often used interchangeably in medical literature.The incidence (number of new cases) of head injury is 300 of every 100,000 per year (0.3% of the population), with a mortality rate of 25 per 100,000 in North America and 9 per 100,000 in Britain. Head trauma is a common cause of childhood hospitalization.
In this volume, experts – including service providers, therapists, children’s advocates, and the research community – summarise and evaluate the problem of the sexual abuse of prepubescent children in southern Africa. It is the first attempt to synthesise southern African research, treatment and policy literature on the topic. The book confronts the realities of sexual abuse, and its representation in the press. It presents the main findings concerning the individual, socio-economic and sociocultural correlates of sexual abuse, and covers legal and policy responses to the problem.
HIV/AIDS-related stigma has been recognised as a key problem that needs to be addressed in HIV/AIDS interventions with adults. The literature on children and HIV/AIDS is extensive, as is the literature on HIV/AIDS related stigma, but specific research on HIV/AIDS-related stigma and children is relatively sparse. This title provides a review of the available literature in this regard.
Exercise tests are thought to mimic the postoperative increase in oxygen consumption and
have been used to select patients at high risk of cardiopulmonary complications after
thoracic, but also abdominal surgery. The aim of exercise tests is to stress the whole
cardiopulmonary system and estimate the physiological reserve that may be available after
lung resection. The most used and best validated exercise parameter is V’O2, max.
One Sunday morning, about the year 1661, a group of Indians was gathered around a noble-looking man,
listening to a story he was reading. It was summer and the day was beautiful, and the little Indian children
who sat listening were so interested that not even the thought of their favorite haunts by brookside or meadow
could tempt them from the spot. The story was about the life of Christ and his mission to the world, and the
children had heard it many times, but to-day it seemed new to them because it was read in their own language,
which had never been printed before....
Generally, empirical studies have considered the effect of subsidies on health insurance coverage. But mandates to obtain health insurance often include monetary penalties for noncompliance, and thus a mandate with a penalty also affects the relative price of health insurance by making it costlier to be uninsured. In this respect, the health economics literature is an obvious starting point to search for information about the possible effects of mandates on coverage choices.
When mothers and their children are separated, mothers may not see their children again or
may lose track of them. Sometimes this is due to the costs involved in arranging their visits to
the prison. Other times it is because the mother rejects the relatives taking care of the
children or because the mother has lost custody of the child (United Nations Office on Drugs
and Crime, 2008). These mental and developmental problems tend to stay with children
throughout their lives.
In contrast, the smaller or so-called "fine" particles in the urban aerosol come from
combustion sources, such as power plants, automobile, truck, bus and other vehicle
exhaust or from the reactions that transform some of the pollutant gases into solid or
liquid particles. These distinctions may be important because the current air pollution
health effects literature suggests, although not with certainty, that for some key health
effects the fine particles are more important than the coarse particles. These findings
have led EPA to propose a new nationwide PM2.
A few words about Dostoevsky himself may help the English reader to understand his work. Dostoevsky was the son of a doctor. His parents were very hard- working and deeply religious people, but so poor that they lived with their five children in only two rooms. The father and mother spent their evenings in reading aloud to their children, generally from books of a serious character. Though always sickly and delicate Dostoevsky came out third in the final examination of the Petersburg school of Engineering. There he had already begun his first work, ‘Poor Folk.’ ...
MOST of the adventures recorded in this book really occurred; one or two were experiences of my own, the rest those of boys who were schoolmates of mine. Huck Finn is drawn from life; Tom Sawyer also, but not from an individual — he is a combination of the characteristics of three boys whom I knew, and therefore belongs to the composite order of architecture. The odd superstitions touched upon were all prevalent among children and slaves in the West at the period of this story — that is to say, thirty or forty years ago. Although my book...
The question of time sequencing of benefits is about whether benefits should be paid at a
fixed rate over the spell of unemployment or decline (or increase) over the spell. This issue
appeared in the literature on optimal UI in the late 1970s and has attracted new attention in
Issues regarding monitoring and sanctions concern how much resources
should be spent on checking search behavior and how sanctions, such as benefit cuts, should
be implemented if prescribed search requirements are not met.
This review was conducted by a team from Johns Hopkins University with expertise in the
management of sickle cell disease, clinical trial methodology (including clinical trials of
hematological agents), systematic literature review, epidemiological studies, and ethics and
adherence research. External technical experts, including academic and clinical experts and
representatives of patients and public interest groups, provided input regarding the selection and
refinement of the questions to be examined and the relevant literature to be considered.
A writer in the Boston Post has said of Mrs. Burnett: "She has a beauty of imagination and a spiritual insight into the meditations of childhood which are within the grasp of no other writer for children,"—and these five volumes would indeed be difficult to match in child literature. The new edition is from new plates, with all the original illustrations by Reginald B. Birch, is bound in a handsome new cover.
Children with disabilities are at risk for experiencing problems in many aspects
of their lives, including becoming independent in daily living skills, meeting
academic expectations, learning to communicate, maintaining emotional and
behavioral regulation, adapting to the social demands of society, and developing
Thanks to Mr. S. M. Mitra, the well-known Hindu psychologist and politician, who has done so much to draw more closely together the land of his birth and that of his adoption, I am able to bring within reach of English children a number of typical Hindu Tales, translated by him from the Sanskrit, some of them culled from the ancient classics of India, others from widely separated sources. The latter have hitherto been quite inaccessible to western students, as they are not yet embodied in literature, but have been transmitted orally from generation to generation for many centuries....
These are trying times for teachers. We know more than
we ever have about teaching, learning, and literacy and their
complexities. Yet we persist with public policies that assume
that if we just increase the pressure on teachers to improve
their students’ test scores, they will somehow teach better—
and perhaps faster—and that children will develop literacies
that will engage them and carry them into the future.
