From reviews of the First Edition:"This meritorious volume is a splendid collection of materials from highly experienced authorsI will make extensive use of this reference as the academic medical center in which I work continues to build sedation practices and assess credentialing/privileging aspects for professionals of all fields." -Joseph R. Tobin, MD in Journal of the American Medical Association.
"Brings together sedation practice from a broad range of specialties into one well-written pediatric textI will certainly be using this book as a reference text in the future." - Pediatric Anesthesia.
"The first [text] directed at all specialists that treat children who require some sedationalso recognizes the contributions to pediatric sedation of many international societies and governmental organizationsIt should be on the shelves of all office-based practices." -Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology.
"With the ever-increasing opportunities to perform various investigations and therapeutic procedures, combined with increasing demands and expectations from children and their parents, the need and demand for safe and effective sedation of paediatric patients outside the operating room is increasing. Against this background, the second edition of 'Pediatric Sedation Outside the Operating Room' is a very timely addition to the anaesthesia literature."-British Journal of AnesthesiaÂ
2015 Reprint of 1960 Edition. Full Facsimile of the original edition. "Women and Fiction" was first published in the U.S. in Forum Magazine, a prominent literary journal of the 1920's It is the principle essay and title of a series of lectures Woolff delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. This essay and the Lectures would eventually be published as "A Room of One's Own" in 1929. In this essay Woolf traces the reasons for the very limited achievements among women novelists through the centuries. Why did they fail? They failed because they were not financially independent; they failed because they were not intellectually free; they failed because they were denied the fullest worldly experience. Mrs. Woolf imagines what would have happened to a hypothetical sister of Shakespeare (who possessed all his genius) because she lived in the eighteenth century; she insists that, whatever her gifts, no woman in that age of wife-beating could have written the plays. She shows what did happen in the nineteenth century to the Brontes and George Eliot because they lacked full participation in life; even George Eliot, the "emancipated" woman, lived with a man prosaically in St. John's Wood, while Tolstoy roamed the world and lived with gypsies; and "War and Peace" was as impossible for a woman to write then as "Lear" three centuries before. This short essays remains an important feminist text.
Students' cognitive, social, and emotional functioning and development is to a large extent culturally, socially, and contextually based. It is critical that educators become familiar with recognizing the numerous ecological influences of cultural diversity on American educational systems. Educational systems have in many ways operated without a strong awareness of a multicultural context and there is much to change at individual, institutional, and systemic levels. Due to rapidly changing demographics in America's schools, successful educators will be those who can work effectively and proactively with diverse students.
Diversity Training for Classroom Teaching: A Manual for Students and Educators is a resource guide geared to help educators create classroom communities that respond to diversity. Current United States national policy mandates that all pre-service teachers take a course in cultural diversity. The ideology behind this mandate is the belief that as America's classrooms become more demographically diverse, educators must learn how to respond to the different needs and cultural styles of children who represent such diversity. While textbooks that highlight these issues do exist, missing from current diversity education literature is a how-to toolkit designed to provide educators with activities, reflective scenarios, resources, and reference lists. The learning activities presented in this volume seek to fill this current gap in the literature. They define terminology, provide activities to raise self-awareness, include newspaper articles that illustrate the relevance of concepts, and allow for an overall dialogue about diverse issues.
Diversity Training for Classroom Teaching encourages readers to generate their own construction of effective multicultural education and learn how to adapt it across various student populations and educational problems. At the same time, learning activities encourage readers to respect and seek to understand the experiences and worldviews of different people and how these diverse realities influence what is meant by multicultural education.
