30 Advanced Questions -
Author: The 11+ Company
The 11+ Super Selective MATHS series has been written especially for children who seek 'more than ordinary' mathematical challenges. Filled with questions designed to stimulate thinking rather than simply elicit learned responses, this series provides the challenge that able pupils seek. Selective UK secondary schools are increasingly developing entrance exams that test potential rather than coached learning. As such we do not offer any particular exam format (e.g. CEM Durham, GL Assessment). Instead children's learning will be brought to life by our questions that demand insight and grasp of the fundamental concepts underlying each problem. Our fully worked answers demonstrate different strategies for solving 11+ mathematical challenges. Attractively designed and with ample space inside for pupils to express their working, this series will lead pupils to discover the fun, beauty and elegance of Mathematics! Each book in the 11+ Super Selective MATHS series - Contains 30 stimulating numerical and mathematical reasoning challenges Provides advanced practice material in mathematical thinking at 11+ Includes fully worked answers & explanations Is suitable for use at the very top end of Key Stage 2 and at Key Stage 3 Is suitable for practice for scholarship exams and at 13+"

Methodological Advances in Educational Effectiveness Research is an important new work by some of the leading researchers in the field of Educational Effectiveness Research (EER). The book provides a state of the art snapshot of the methodology of EER now and clearly demonstrates the way it is applied in both research and evaluation. It shows how developments in the research methodology area such as the use of multilevel modelling approaches to analyse nested data have promoted the knowledge-base of educational effectiveness. But at the same time, as the authors show, the knowledge-base of educational effectiveness and the attempt to establish theoretical models do paradoxically challenge the development of methodologically appropriate studies including ways of analysing data. Guiding readers though the effective and appropriate use in educational effectiveness of: Longitudinal Studies Experimental Studies Mixed Research Methods Meta-analyses of effectiveness studies Using IRT to measure outcomes and factors Using Generalisability Theory to test the quality of data Multilevel modelling , and Structural Equation Modelling Techniques The authors draw in the expertise of scholars from around the world to show the mathematical background of each technique, the current and future applications, and Specific examples of applying this orientation to help the readers design their own effectiveness studies using specific methodological tools.

Author: Alison Wilcox
Reviews of the first edition "This book is a treasure trove of descriptive language... Highly recommended for both teachers and parents. I wish I’d had a copy of this book when I was a full time English teacher! Invest in a copy today; you’ll be glad you did." Sue Cowley, bestselling author, teacher and teacher trainer "Help to banish 'blank page syndrome' for ever, with this innovative book... Created by teacher, Alison Wilcox, this inspirational book will build children's confidence in their writing ability." Literacy Times Plus "A real ‘godsend’ to hard-pressed teachers, parents and pupils." Denis Hayes, author of Foundations of Primary Teaching Reviews of the second edition ‘...the addition of the CD is perfect for the modern day classroom... fantastic!’ Emma Palastanga, primary deputy head ‘The... book/CD, will be so helpful to teachers who are struggling to think of different ways to say things and will enhance their planning and teaching. As a classroom resource it will be invaluable.’ Elaine Smitheman, primary school teacher Now available with a CD-ROM for classroom use, Descriptosaurus is the first book for creative writing that is a thematic expansion of a dictionary and a thesaurus. It provides children with a comprehensive resource with which to expand their descriptive vocabulary, experiment with language and sentence structure and build up narratives based around the following areas: Settings – landscapes, settlements and atmosphere, Characters – appearance, emotions and personality, and Creatures – appearance, abilities and habitats. New features for the second edition include: IWB compatible CD-ROM containing all the main elements of the book New VCOP coverage Expanded coverage of adverbs and connectives New planning sheets to help children organise and structure descriptions Character cards, games and mountain pyramid vocabulary builders The Descriptosaurus model was created and refined over a number of years as a result of feedback from children inside and outside the classroom as to the resources they required to inspire and assist them with their writing. For reluctant writers or those faced with blank page syndrome, it provides essential starting points to encourage putting pen to paper. Using Descriptosaurus will not only inspire children, it will build their confidence and dramatically improve the content of their writing. This is an ideal resource for all KS2 primary and KS3 secondary English teachers, literacy coordinators and parents keen to support their childrens’ creative writing. It would also make an excellent classroom book for PGCE students, particularly Primary PGCE with English specialism.

In almost every part of the world, minority languages are threatened with extinction. At the same time, dedicated efforts are being made to document endangered languages, to maintain them, and even to revive once-extinct languages. The present volume examines a wide range of issues that concern language endangerment and language revitalization. Among other things, it is shown that languages may be endangered to different degrees, endangerment situations in selected areas of the world are surveyed and definitions of language death and types of language death presented. The book also examines causes of language endangerment, speech behaviour in a language endangerment situation, structural changes in endangered languages, as well as types of speakers encountered in a language endangerment situation. In addition, methods of documentation and of training for linguists are proposed which will enable scholars to play an active role in the documentation of endangered languages and in language revitalization. The book presents a comprehensive overview of the field. It is clearly written and contains ample references to the relevant literature, thus providing useful guidance for further research. The author often draws on his own experience of documenting endangered languages and of language revival activities in Australia. The volume is of interest to a wide readership, including linguists, anthropologists, sociologists, and educators.
