              Educational Psychology First Australian Edition (Paperback)

              By O'Donnell, Angela M.; Smith, Jeffrey K.; Bryer, Fiona; Bartlett, Brendan

              Educational psychology is the scientific study of how people learn and how teachers can foster learning. An understanding of these principles and how they can be applied to classroom situations is as crucial as it ever has been for the contemporary Australian school teacher, from... early childhood through to secondary school. Australian school environments and students are changing. Many issues are having an impact on the dynamics of the contemporary learning and teaching environment, such as: * Increasing student diversity, including those with special needs * The pervasive impact of technology * The introduction of the Australian National Curriculum * The public reporting of school NAPLAN results. This text prepares pre-service teachers for their profession by encouraging reflective practice and critical thinking. It helps inform the 'practical' teaching experience and develop skills through thought-provoking questions, activities and lesson plan analysis. It is suited for educational psychology subjects taught to student teachers from all sectors - early childhood, primary, middle and secondary.

              For over a quarter of a century, in unprecedented fashion, George C. Wallace dominated the political scene in the state of Alabama. During that time span, Wallace was elected Governor on four separate occasions. He also orchestrated the successful election of an unlikely proxy ca...ndidate (his wife, Lurleen) to Alabama's Governor's office. Bolstered by his successes at home, Wallace took his campaign to the national level, and ran for President four times. A master of inflammatory rhetoric and racial innuendo, the feisty Alabamian correctly sensed that his States' Rights message would appeal to voters outside of Alabama. Wallace soon became a thorn in the side of established politicians in both the Democratic and Republican parties. At the zenith of Wallace's political career, a deranged stalker gunned him down. Condemned to life in a wheelchair and riddled with pain, his national political career ended in a hail of bullets. In Alabama, Wallace's popularity was undiminished, and he was twice more elected Governor. George Wallace is best remembered for his ardent opposition to the Civil Rights movement. In 1962, the newly elected Governor vowed to maintain segregation forever. His defiant stance against the forces of social change led to his deification by fellow segregationists and vilification by Civil Rights advocates. A repentant George Wallace eventually sought the forgiveness and support of black voters. Ironically, during his last gubernatorial campaign, he won the overwhelming majority of Alabama's African American vote. The Fighting Little Judge: The Life and Times of George C. Wallace, tells the story of a remarkable life, filled with triumph, tragedy, and redemption.

              A colorful and controversial statesman who served in the United States Senate for a half-century, Strom Thurmond did not retire from office until after he was 100 years old. Hailing from the small town of Edgefield, South Carolina, Thurmond rapidly ascended the political ladder--...Superintendent of Education, State Senator, Circuit Court Judge, Governor, and U.S. Senator. An avowed States' Righter, Thurmond ran as a segregationist Dixiecrat presidential candidate in 1948. Thurmond holds the record for the longest solo filibuster in American history, when he held the floor for over 24 hours to protest the Civil Rights Act of 1957. The defiant South Carolinian is one of only two persons to have ever been elected to national office by write-in vote. While remaining a staunch conservative, Thurmond eventually abandoned his segregationist ways and managed to earn the gratitude and electoral support of African American voters. With unrivaled service to his constituents, Thurmond was elected to the Senate on nine occasions. Throughout his storied career,Thurmond never revealed that he had fathered a mixed race child. The general public did not learn about this potentially career-ending secret until after Thurmond's death. A decorated World War War II veteran who participated in the D-Day invasion of France, a courageous Thurmond was not unwilling to undertake personal and political risks. The South Carolina Senator's bold actions, eternal youthfulness, and political longevity were the envy of supporters and opponents, alike. Dixiecrat: The Life and Times of Strom Thurmond is a concise, biography of a 20th century political icon.

              In the summer of 1945, the world was introduced to the horrific consequences of nuclear warfare. On the sixth day of August, an American B-29 bomber dropped a revolutionary new weapon, the atomic bomb, over the Japanese city of Hiroshima. The catastrophic detonation instantly kil...led over 100,000 residents of the city, with thousands more dying from explosion-related injuries in the months and years to follow. Three days later, a second nuclear weapon was released over the skies of Nagasaki, killing over 40,000 Japanese citizens, most of whom were civilians. Six days after the second nuclear attack, the Empire of Japan surrendered, and World War II was ended. Jubilation among the Allied countries was tempered by a profound sense of relief; nearly four years of bloody war had finally come to an end. Some 406,000 Americans died during World War II, while another 671,000 were wounded. By the end of the war, an astonishing one out of every one hundred thirty six Americans had been killed or wounded in the fighting. American military personnel, along with their spouses, children, parents, and friends, were eager to see the bloody conflict come to and end, by any means possible. Consequently, President Harry Truman's decision to utilize the atomic bomb to bring Japan to its knees was wildly popular in the weeks and months that followed the Japanese surrender. In the six plus decades since Hiroshima and Nagasaki, however, many have questioned both the necessity and morality of America's deployment of the bomb. Significantly influenced by revisionist history, passionate debate has focused on the justification for nuclear warfare to subdue an enemy already nearing defeat. Like so many other momentous events, the reader must balance the reality of the world in 1945 against the seemingly clearer prism of revisionist history. Fire in the Sky: The Story of the Atomic Bomb chronicles the development and use of the first atomic bombs. This is a remarkable story about the lives and
