              Dominic Traynor, the founder of A Tale Unfolds and LitFilmFest, offers a practical method for primary teachers to radically improve English attainment in their classroom. This innovative approach links global challenges including politics, social change, the environment, health a...nd advertising to the five key National Curriculum areas in English: reports, instructions, persuasive language, fiction and poetry, and presentation skills. It develops reading and writing through exciting, real-world tasks such as emailing an MP, creating a viral video, using social media to start petitions and working with local news outlets. Pupil Power presents ready-to-use lesson plans, exercises and activities to help teachers bring this concept to life in the primary classroom. This way of learning has been found to improve English progress at Key Stage 2 by 3.75 times the UK national average. By teaching English in this practical, purposeful and more meaningful way, we can inspire the YouTube generation to learn the literacy skills they need to influence the world around them and have a positive impact as global citizens.

              Regular expressions can make virtually every developer more productive, but many programmers don't use them because they've never learned how. In Learning Regular Expressions, best-selling author Ben Forta solves that problem. Forta's expert tutorial organizes regex into a series... of easy-to-follow hands-on lessons focused on solving the specific problems you're likely to encounter most often. Instead of dwelling on syntax, terminology, and arcane scenarios, he guides you through concepts and techniques you'll use every day -- starting with simple text matches and working up to powerful backreferences, conditional evaluation, and look-ahead processing. Forta's clear, practical examples are implemented in multiple languages, so you can find code you can immediately use to get the job done.
