Lesson Study Research and Practice in Mathemati...

Lesson study is a professional development process that teachers engage in to systematically examine their practice, with the goal of becoming more effective. Originating in Japan, lesson study has gained significant momentum in the mathematics education community in recent years.As a process for professional development, lesson study became highly visible when it was proposed as a means of supporting the common practice of promoting better teaching by disseminating documents like standards, benchmarks and nationally validated curricula.While the body of knowledge about lesson study is growing, it remains somewhat elusive and composed of discrete research endeavors. As a new research area there is no coherent knowledge base yet. This book will contribute to the field bringing the work of researchers and practitioners together to create a resource for extant work.This book describes several aspects of Lesson Study, amongst others: it gives an historical overview of the concept, it addresses issues related to learning and teaching mathematics, it looks at the role of the teacher in the process. The last two sections of the book look at how lesson Study can be used with preservice mathematics teachers and at university mathematics methods teaching.

Dirty Gold
33,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Gold mining can be a dirty business. It creates immense amounts of toxic materials that are difficult to dispose of. Mines are often developed without community consent, and working conditions for miners can be poor. Income from gold has funded wars. And consumers buy wedding rings and gold chains not knowing about any of this. In Dirty Gold, Michael Bloomfield shows what happened when Earthworks, a small Washington-based NGO, launched a campaign for ethically sourced gold in the consumer jewelry market, targeting Tiffany and other major firms. The unfolding of the campaign and its effect on the jewelry industry offer a lesson in the growing influence of business in global environmental politics.

Schumpeterian Perspectives on Innovation, Compe...
164,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Recent developments in economics have gone from the recognition of the importance of innovation for growth and the exploration of innovation mechanisms to the incorporation of the results of the previous research into economic models. An important lesson to be drawn from all this research is that a purely macro-based analysis of growth is not enough. The various mechanisms of innovation creation and diffusion, the importance of agent heterogeneity, of market selection processes, of the internal organization of the firm and of organizational routines, and the obsolescence and the consequent emergence of new types of capital goods are a few examples of micro-economic phenomena that contribute decisively to macro-economic development. The papers in this volume approach those issues from a Schumpeterian point of view and tackle issues like the growing importance of knowledge and human capital, increasing returns and path dependence, the role of variety in economic growth, competition and industry evolution.

A Social and Economic History of the Displaced
61,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Population displacement has been a growing social challenge since ancient times. This book explores the validity of the dependency syndrome hypothesis among refugees. The study reveals that Angolan refugees at Meheba Settlement in Zambia attained self-sufficiency in food production and contributed to that country's food security. A major lesson from this study is that paternalism is unlikely to achieve the desirable advance towards the social and economic integration of refugees in a host community. Apart from exhibiting financial transparency, refugee agencies and asylum government officials must dialogue to avoid duplication of effort, undue distrust and conflict, which could impede humanitarian work. This book is mainly for scholars, governments hosting refugees, UNHCR, other agencies operational in organised refugee settlements and individuals in vocations concerned with alleviating the plight of the displaced.
