    New Zealand Dyslexia Handbook
    This is an up-to-date resource written with the aim of improving the literacy of dyslexic students. The authors are experienced university teachers and researchers with expertise in literacy. In putting the book and DVD together, they consulted with other university researchers, students with dyslexia, their parents, classroom teachers and principals. In this book and accompanying DVD aim to de-mystify dyslexia and show that there are many practical things classroom teachers can do about it. Dyslexia is mysterious to many people, yet it becomes easy to understand once you have some information about it. It is commonly ignored by schools and the community because of a lack of understanding, and people have taken on ideas that are not backed by research. This book aims to address this.

  • Perspectives on Educational Practice Around the World
    Perspectives on Educational Practice Around the World
    This book explores the philosophies, barriers and opportunities shaping education environments for children, teachers and student teachers in diverse countries around the world through a series of pertinent articles. These are drawn from the contributors' experiential knowledge of education in contexts such as Australia, Canada, China, Finland, India, Nepal, Palestine, Qatar, South Africa, Venezuela and the UK.

    The issues raised enable valuable insights into formal education from pre-school to higher education within individual national contexts, while also having significance across state boundaries. They are set against a background of international comparisons, global economies and communications, and environmental and social change. The topics covered include global citizenship, learning environments, inclusion and inequality. Each of the articles introduces a key issue, offers contextualized examples and questions to prompt discussion and further research, along with a guide to further resources.

    Thoughtfully structured, the editors provide an overarching introduction and concluding chapter, reflecting on global issues and directions of travel in educational policies as well as highlighting countries which are bucking current trends.
