How do we make writing meaningful to students? A leading educator and a popular novelist present a refreshing exploration of how the challenges of professional writers can give students new insights into writing. The Write Genre presents a balanced approach to writing workshops in grades 3–9. It provides hands-on activities that focus on all stages of the writing process, with teacher-directed assignments and self-selected writing lessons that emphasize writing to learn. These unique lessons are designed to help students write with a concrete purpose and audience in mind and complete assignments that are more focused and authentic. Organized around six writing genres, more than fifty mini-lessons deal with specific skills that help students write effective fiction and nonfiction in such genres as: personal memoir— from techniques involving a personal memoir timeline and organizer to great ways to start, create powerful paragraphs, and cut the clutter; fictional narrative— from character, plot, and dialogue to point of view and conflict resolution; informational report— from strategies for reading nonfiction and K-W-L-S organizers to adding voice and style; opinion piece— from loaded words and other persuasive writing techniques to business letters and topical issues; procedural writing —from incorporating visuals and interviewing experts to techniques for writing imperative sentences; poetry – from teaching the "tools" and specific forms of poetry to creating a poetry anthology. For easy classroom implementation, the key elements of many mini-lessons are also presented in reproducible pages, including frameworks, organizers, prompts, checklists, and grids. The book offers chapters devoted to the writing process, writing workshop, and using rubrics for instruction and assessment. The concluding chapter pulls all the threads together with a multi-genre project that involves students in using the skills they have learned throughout the school year.

Second Edition was a winner of the AJN Award! "Unique to this book, and what sets it apart from other books on simulations and clinical scenarios, are the personal experiences...that the authors bring to the chapters. The authors' passion, enthusiasm, and inspiration are truly reflected and demonstrated in each chapter. Authors talk about lessons learned, teaching strategies, and in-depth research... Key highlights in the book include the practice application of how to develop, implement, and evaluate clinical simulations in your nursing program. The authors make understanding simulation pedagogy an easy journey and one that is exciting that educators will want to try and embrace even when there is hesitation and uncertainty." -Pamela R. Jeffries, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF; Professor, Dean; George Washington University School of Nursing; From the Foreword When employed as a substitute for real clinical time, simulation scenarios have proven effective in bridging the gap between theory and practice. Written by educators for educators, this book provides all the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to make simulation feasible, enjoyable, and meaningful for students. In this edition, there are 25 new chapters, 20 of them scenarios for all levels and specialties, and 11 of those representing interprofessional education and team training. This acclaimed text for nursing faculty provides detailed, step-by-step guidance on all aspects of clinical simulation. Each scenario is broken down into objectives, pre-scenario checklists, implementation plans, evaluation criteria, debriefing guidelines, and recommendations for further use. Replete with diverse scenarios, this comprehensive resource covers geriatric, pediatric, trauma, obstetric, and community-based patient scenarios. Chapters cover all levels of nursing students from pre-licensure to doctoral level, and contain the authors' own advice and experiences working in simulation around the globe. All scenarios have been updated to adhere to the new best practice simulation standards for design, facilitator and participant criteria, interprofessional criteria, and debriefing processes. A template for creating scenarios spans the text and includes student preparation materials, forms to enhance the realness of the scenario, and checklists for practice assessment and evaluation. The revised edition now includes scenarios easily adaptable to an instructor’s own lab, an international perspective, and a section on graduate nursing education and eleven new interdisciplinary clinical scenarios. New to the third edition: 20 brand-new scenarios in anesthesia, midwifery, pediatric, disaster, and other specialty focused situations, plus five new chapters Updated to encompass new simulation pedagogy including best practice standards New scenarios easily adapted to an instructor’s own lab Integrating disability into nursing education with standardized patients and the use of IV simulations Interprofessional and international scenarios focused on areas of global concern: obstetric hemorrhage, neonatal hypoglycemia, deteriorating patients A new section on how to "write like a nurse" in clinical simulation environments Teaching and evaluating therapeutic communication with a review of instruments for assessment Key Features: Includes information on how to integrate simulation into curricula Addresses conceptual and theoretical foundations of simulation in nursing education, including an expanded chapter on the Framework for Simulation Learning in Nursing Education Includes a wide variety of practical scenarios in ready-to-use format with instructions Provides a template for scenario development Delivers recommendations for integration of point-of-care decision-making tools Offers opportunities for enhancing complexity, incorporating interprofessional competencies, and debriefing guidelines Provides insight into pedagogical intergration of simulation throughout every aspect of the nursing curriculum with scenarios mapped to North American standards and the NCLEX-RN Blueprint Includes details on: learning lab and staff development from fundraising and building a lab (Ch. 6), to placement of AV (Ch. 7) to faculty development (Ch. 5) and self-assessment for certification and accreditation (Ch. 54).

Genre and Television proposes a new understanding of television genres as cultural categories, offering a set of in-depth historical and critical examinations to explore five key aspects of television genre: history, industry, audience, text, and genre mixing. Drawing on well-known television programs from Dragnet to The Simpsons, this book provides a new model of genre historiography and illustrates how genres are at work within nearly every facet of television-from policy decisions to production techniques to audience practices. Ultimately, the book argues that through analyzing how television genre operates as a cultural practice, we can better comprehend how television actively shapes our social world.

This book examines the resources that speakers employ when building conversations. These resources contribute to overall coherence and cohesion, which speakers create and maintain interactively as they build on each other’s contributions. The study is cross-linguistic, drawing on parallel corpora of task-oriented dialogues between dyads of native speakers of English and Spanish. The framework of the investigation is the analysis of speech genres and their staging; the analysis shows that each stage in the dialogues exhibits different thematic, rhetorical, and cohesive relations. The main contributions of the book are: a corpus-based characterization of a spoken genre (task-oriented dialogue); the compilation of a body of analysis tools for generic analysis; application of English-based analyses to Spanish and comparison between the two languages; and a study of the characteristics of each generic stage in task-oriented dialogue.
