Zero Tolerance and Other Plays

A wealth of evidence demonstrates that disabled domestic students experience disabling barriers in such areas as funding, pedagogy and social life in Higher Education (HE). Research also indicates that non-disabled international students experience a wide range of cultural and linguistic difficulties throughout their university experience whilst studying in England. Nevertheless, there is a dearth of research concerning the specific experiences of disabled international students in English universities. With the increasing internationalisation of HE in the past two decades this is highly significant. Analysing disabled international students’ accounts in British universities appears to be ...

When hit man Dante Ryan is ordered to wipe out a Toronto family, including a five-year-old boy, he can't bring himself to do it. Not with a son of his own that age. So he turns to private investigator Jonah Geller for help. Why Geller? He's not your typical private eye. He was never a cop and doesn't drink to excess. He's a secular Jew in Toronto whose mother wishes he was more like his older brother the lawyer. But Jonah has a tough side too. He wants to make the world a better place and doesn't mind raising a cloud of dust to do it. Ryan thinks he's the right man for the job in Buffalo Jump. Find out whether he's right — how these two get along on a wild ride over the river -- and why critics hailed this book as the start of something great.

Jana Hazekamp introduces a wide variety of computation strategies, adapt ed from the acclaimed Singapore approach, that will bring students a real understanding of number relationships and the meaning behind the math. The guided-conversation format is designed for quick reading, and Jana's question-and-answer style is particularly well suited to encouraging students to focus on the why and to begin using math terminology correctly and fluently. Teachers can use this book to build the concept of place value, encourage students to consider multiple methods for solving problems, and build real understanding of the meaning behind addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division paving the way to beginning algebra. These strategies can be used for whole-class instruction and also for small intervention groups. The book does not have to be read cover to cover; the reader can dip in as needed to help a student who's struggling with a particular concept.
