The Dumb House
10,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As a child, Luke's mother often tells him the story of the Dumb House, an experiment on newborn babies raised in silence, designed to test the innateness of language. As Luke grows up, his interest in language and the delicate balance of life and death leads to amateur dissections of small animals - tiny hearts revealed still pumping, as life trickles away. But as an adult, following the death of his mother, Luke's obsession deepens, resulting in a haunting and bizarre experiment on Luke's own children.

Success Factors for Students Who Delay College
59,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

What can we do to help our adult learners to success in higher education? Those who do not immediately attend college after high school are distinct from mainstream students in that they have more life-balance issues. This research demonstrates that adult college students are more likely to be successful if they participate in small learning communities of students in similar circumstances. Advisors, counselors and professors can help these students be more successful by supporting opportunities for these students to work together.

Neuronal Plasticity
85,30 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Regulation of plasticity in the adult Central Nervous System (CNS) is a complex mechanism in which growth-promoting and growth-inhibitory signals from neurons and local cues are finely tuned to confer specific plastic potentialities. This balance is also influenced by the external world, which acts on both intrinsic potentialities and extrinsic cues to enhance plastic capacities where needed. The research presented in this book suggests a model of triadic interplay between external world, intrinsic neuronal growth potentialities and extrinsic growth regulatory mechanisms. The overall result is a fine modulation of neuronal plasticity, which allows adaptation of the adult CNS to the changing environment. The thorough analysis of growth-associated genes, myelin receptors, perineuronal nets, and their experimental manipulations, render this book particularly useful for university students. Wider public can also enjoy this content, provided that they are passionate for Neurosciences and have understanding of Life Sciences.

Thinking Themselves Free
33,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Thinking Themselves Free presents humane, tender portraits of a small group of teen mothers trying to finish high school, and describes the ways in which reading, writing, and schooling shaped these young women's lives. The book suggests ways in which deeply held ideas about class, appropriate gender roles, and the expression of emotion in school affect educators' relationships with students who are different from the middle-class norm. Teachers of teen mothers describe with poignancy the young women's struggles to balance motherhood, work, and school, and suggest how schools could change to become more open to the diversity of life choice these women express.Because this book addresses the problems of struggling readers, working class students, and the teachers who serve them, its greatest audience will be among pre-service and in-service teachers and teacher educators interested in literacy education, qualitative research, education reform, gender equity, social justice, and the teaching of young adult literature.
