Women's Political Engagement in Canada

From the days of the fur trade through the contemporary period, women have played important roles in the public life of Canada. Until the 1970s, however, these contributions were generally overlooked. This book focuses on two questions: are the doors to participation presently open wider than they were in the past? How can these doors be opened wider, both in terms of real-world participation and our scholarly understanding of public engagement? These tightly argued essays shed new light on the public involvement of women. Sophisticated discussions of both solutions and problems make this book an indispensable resource for students and practitioners of politics at all levels.

Opening Doors examines a wide range of initiatives for learning support in higher education. The book encompasses special needs and disability policy and provision, and provides case study examples based in a number of 'new' universities. The concerns of the case studies range from direct practical improvement of facilities to study skills and specific learning programmes, peer support, personal tuition and the appointment of designated staff. These initiatives are set in national and international contexts. Learning support provision is one positive response to the challenges facing higher education and all those planning and implementing quality education for the next millennium.

In May 2014, I decided to quit the job that had run through my veins for so long and I loved so much. Up until a few months before, I still woke up every day thankful I had landed the role I wanted more than anything. I had worked my way up from grassroots level and knew the ins and outs of the job. This was necessary if I was to be successful. I felt I had to be effective not just for myself, but also for the divisional manager, who had believed in me and given me my chance. My work ethic had been instilled in me from a little girl, coming from a family of six girls, four of which were older than me. They along with our parents had shown me what you can achieve from working hard, but my hunger to succeed started at an early age. From as far back as I can remember, I didn’t take losing very well, so more often than not, I studied and practiced every game we played, giving me that edge all the time, ensuring I won most of the time, and this still continues today.

What Happens in Gestalt Therapy

First published in 1975 and revised and updated in 1989, Opening Doors was the first book to offer insight into what takes place in the consulting room of a Gestalt therapist during both individual and group sessions. In the first edition the author offered clinical vignettes detailing more than thirty of his patients. In the revised edition, published fifteen years later, he includes a brief "update," writing of how Gestalt therapy impacted each of their lives. The author was one of the first to provide therapeutic services to AIDs victims from Manhattan's Gay Community and shares some of his moving experiences with his gay clients. In her forward, Gestalt therapy founder Laura Perls wrote: "This book is a strong gestalt, a successful integration of theory and practice, of explanation and expression, into an intensely personal style of communication. Daniel Rosenblatt's precise and, at the same time, imaginative and flowing use of language in dialogue and metaphor makes exciting and enjoyable reading. Opening Doors offers a profound insight into Gestalt therapy. I recommend this book to all serious students and practitioners of psychotherapy as well as to the general public."

Perspectives on Race Relations in Contemporary America

On June 11, 1963, The University of Alabama provided the backdrop for what would become a lasting symbol in U.S. civil right history. With his stand in the schoolhouse door staged at Foster Auditorium on the University's campus, Governor George C. Wallace attempted to defy a federal mandate by blocking the admission of two black students to the University. The nature of racial prejudice and discrimination – its causes, its history, and is impact on society – was the focus of a 1988 national symposium hosted by The University of Alabama to mark the 25th anniversary of the stand in the schoolhouse door. On this occasion major participants in the Wallace stand reconvened to reflect on the issues and circumstances surrounding that event. In addition, because of the original event's central place in civil rights history, and because of the many racial disturbances and difficulties occurring today, scholars from across the country were asked to contribute to an extensive examination of racial prejudice and discrimination. This book is based on the presentations commissioned for the symposium and is divided into three sections: Historical Context, Current Psychosocial-Cultural Assessments of Prejudice and Discrimination, and Strategies for Change. The contributors include Dan T. Carter, E. Culpepper Clark, John F. Dovidio, Samuel L. Gaertner, Rhoda E. Johnson, James Jones, Leon F. Litwack, Fannie Allen Neal, Mortimer Ostow, Thomas F. Pettigrew, and Walter G. Stephan. The editors have provided introductions to each of the three sections that place the chapters in both historical and contemporary contexts. Opening Doors describes the progress that has been made in this country in the relationships between and among the races since a sneering Governor Wallace withdrew from the University campus, telling bystanders to “come back and see us in Alabama.” The volume also sheds new light on our understanding of prejudice and discrimination and serves to broaden our current perspectives on the traditions, values, attitudes, and behavior patterns that contribute to and reflect these negative components of race relations. At the same time, by recounting historical issues associated with prejudice, racism, and discrimination, by offering current analyses of these concepts, and by suggesting strategies for effecting appropriate and meaningful change, Opening Doors leads to a clear understanding of the nature and extent of progress yet to be realized before we are able to engage in harmonious race relations and enjoy the benefits of a more just society.

Opening Doors to Student Understanding

What are "essential questions," and how do they differ from other kinds of questions? What's so great about them? Why should you design and use essential questions in your classroom? Essential questions (EQs) help target standards as you organize curriculum content into coherent units that yield focused and thoughtful learning. In the classroom, EQs are used to stimulate students' discussions and promote a deeper understanding of the content. Whether you are an Understanding by Design (UbD) devotee or are searching for ways to address standards--local or Common Core State Standards--in an engaging way, Jay McTighe and Grant Wiggins provide practical guidance on how to design, initiate, and embed inquiry-based teaching and learning in your classroom. Offering dozens of examples, the authors explore the usefulness of EQs in all K-12 content areas, including skill-based areas such as math, PE, language instruction, and arts education. As an important element of their backward design approach to designing curriculum, instruction, and assessment, the authors *Give a comprehensive explanation of why EQs are so important; *Explore seven defining characteristics of EQs; *Distinguish between topical and overarching questions and their uses; *Outline the rationale for using EQs as the focal point in creating units of study; and *Show how to create effective EQs, working from sources including standards, desired understandings, and student misconceptions. Using essential questions can be challenging--for both teachers and students--and this book provides guidance through practical and proven processes, as well as suggested "response strategies" to encourage student engagement. Finally, you will learn how to create a culture of inquiry so that all members of the educational community--students, teachers, and administrators--benefit from the increased rigor and deepened understanding that emerge when essential questions become a guiding force for learners of all ages.
