              Growing up With Two Languages provides a highly accessible account of the stages of language development, describes and evaluates the various systems and strategies that can be adopted and looks at the problems that can occur when a child is exposed to two language and cultures. ...Combining research-informed advice and the experience of parents raising children as speakers of a wide range of languages in every populated continent in the world, this book and its associated web material will answer questions, offer tried and tested strategies to keep children speaking a minority language and give material to enlist the support of the extended family, teachers and others. The perspective of adults themselves raised speaking more than one language is included. New to this edition is a chapter focussing on families raising children as speakers of indigenous and threatened languages and chapters for teachers and for health professionals who want to know more about multilingual child language development and how they can support parents to continue speaking their language with their children. With new and updated first-hand advice, Internet resources and examples throughout, this book also includes a chapter that introduces important recent research into multilingual children and further reading guides for those who want to know more. This book is for parents who are raising or plan to raise children as speakers of more than one language, and for the teachers and healthcare workers who meet and can support them.

              A beautifully written novel that puts language at the heart of remembering the past and understanding the present. --Kate Morton A groundbreaking novel for black and white Australia. --Richard Flanagan, Man Booker Prize winning author of The Narrow Road to the Deep North A young ...Australian woman searches for her grandfather's dictionary, the key to halting a mining company from destroying her family's home and ancestral land in this exquisitely written, heartbreaking, yet hopeful novel of culture, language, tradition, suffering, and empowerment in the tradition of Louise Erdrich, Sandra Cisneros, and Amy Harmon. Knowing that he will soon die, Albert Poppy Gondiwindi has one final task he must fulfill. A member of the indigenous Wiradjuri tribe, he has spent his adult life in Prosperous House and the town of Massacre Plains, a small enclave on the banks of the Murrumby River. Before he takes his last breath, Poppy is determined to pass on the language of his people, the traditions of his ancestors, and everything that was ever remembered by those who came before him. The land itself aids him; he finds the words on the wind. After his passing, Poppy's granddaughter, August, returns home from Europe, where she has lived the past ten years, to attend his burial. Her overwhelming grief is compounded by the pain, anger, and sadness of memory--of growing up in poverty before her mother's incarceration, of the racism she and her people endured, of the mysterious disappearance of her sister when they were children; an event that has haunted her and changed her life. Her homecoming is bittersweet as she confronts the love of her kin and news that Prosperous is to be repossessed by a mining company. Determined to make amends and honor Poppy and her family, she vows to save their land--a quest guided by the voice of her grandfather that leads into the past, the stories of her people, the secrets of the river. Told in three masterfully woven narratives, The Yield is a celebratio

              This book explores how corporations fund, devise and implement various programmes in schools as `part of the solution' to childhood obesity. Drawing on data from across the globe, it shows how children, teachers, school leaders and external providers (both public and private), un...derstand and experience `sponsored' programmes and resources that aim to improve children's health and encourage `healthy' consumption of corporate products. Challenging the idea that the corporate `war' against childhood obesity is normal, necessary, or harmless, this book exposes healthy lifestyles education as a form of mis-education that constrains what students learn about health, corporations and consumption.

              This book addresses the challenges of today's rapidly changing mental health landscape, some of which includes shortened sessions practitioners are able to have with their patients, the integration of mental health providers into integrated primary care settings, and the increasi...ng prominence of psychological conditions in those seeking medical care. Sperry and Binensztok predict that a new practice model will form to address both physical and psychological health whether in specialized mental health or integrated settings, and that utilizing focused interventions in brief treatment formats will be a key component of this new practice model. Their book offers a toolkit of effective interventions or methods that can be quickly and effectively applied to ameliorate specific symptoms, including CBT methods which can be utilized in a very brief time frame of 10-20 minutes. In section 1, the authors describe Ultra-Brief CBT and why it will be an effective tool within integrated care practice, and in section 2 they describe applications of ultra-brief interventions. This book equips emerging and experienced counselors and therapists with the necessary skills to meet the challenges facing mental health care today and in the future.

              The main topic is what the title indicates: to collect, survey and categorize the results and theories achieved in the last 30 years with polynomial methods , mostly (but not exclusively) in finite geometries. It contains techniques based on the careful examination of coefficient...s of polynomials, resultants, algebraic curves, subspaces generated by certain polynomials, random-like behaviour, etc. Our polynomials are usually defined over a finite field, and they express some combinatorial or geometric property of a combinatorial or geometric structure. We go through several types of applications of the methods. There will be more than a hundred exercises with short solutions.

              A novel proposal for teaching organic chemistry based on a broader and simplified use of quantum chemistry theories and notions of some statistical thermodynamic concepts aiming to enrich the learning process of the organic molecular properties and organic reactions. A detailed p...hysical chemistry approach to teach organic chemistry for undergraduate students is the main aim of this book. A secondary objective is to familiarize undergraduate students with computational chemistry since most of illustrations of optimized geometries (plus some topological graphs) and information is from quantum chemistry outputs which will also enable students to obtain a deeper understanding of organic chemistry.
