223 pages. Simon 'Specky' Magee and his Under 14s football team, the Booyong High Lions, return to battle out the second half of their league's season. The Lions are playing well and Specky's form is looking good - perhaps good enough to win a scholarship to a prestigious sporting school. But a knee injury sees him sidelined, and suddenly his future is filled with uncertainty. Will his team make it to the finals without him? Will he be able to play if they do? And how is he going to impress the talent scout if he can't play footy? Meanwhile, he'll have to deal with his rival and worst enemy, Screamer Johnson, and he will meet the mysterious Tiger Girl and the Great McCarthy. Join Specky Magee as he finds out why there's more to being a champion than just being a legend on the field. For upper primary and lower secondary school age children.

Australia Book House 2001 1740181662 / 9781740181662 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
250 pages including illustrations. This book straddles the second and third millennia, looking back with affection at the children who went through the State educational system in Victoria half a century ago, and forward to a better education system for children born forty years hence. The thrust of the ideas in this book is that education systems may be slowly evolving to allow for the individual needs of the individual children in their care. As a primary teacher in the Victorian State system in the early 1950s, the accuracy of Brian Bock’s word pictures makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time.

Literacy Evaluation: Issues and Practicalities: Issues and Practicalities, Bouffler, Chrystine (editor)
5 Bouffler, Chrystine (editor) Literacy Evaluation: Issues and Practicalities: Issues and Practicalities
Australia PETA 1992 0711916705 / 9780711916708 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 8vo 
116 pages. The increasing pressure for greater accountability which has accompanied recent economic changes has put assessment high on the educational agenda. There are four major groups requiring performance information: students, teachers, parents and educational systems. This book surveys some of the recent developments in language assessment, both in Australia and overseas, which attempt to satisfy the needs of these groups. It looks at some of the issues which surround these developments, raising questions about our views of knowledge and asking whether the needs of all groups can be satisfied by one form of assessment. It also looks at the way some systems and some teachers have tackled the issues and offers practical suggestions for organising assessment in the classroom. Chrystine Bouffler is Head of the School of Education at Ballarat University College. She has had a long involvement in teaching and literacy learning within Australia and overseas. She is well known to PETA members for her work on spelling - in particular, for her book Spell by Writing and PEN Spelling It Out to Parents, both written with Wendy Bean. Her interest and expertise go beyond the area of spelling, however, and her most recent publication was a PEN on Assessment and Evaluation in Reading, written with Bruce Knight. There is a name in the first page.

8 Burnett, Bruce; Daphne Meadmore; Gordon Tait New Questions for Contemporary Teachers: Taking a Socio-Cultural Approach to Education
Australia Pearson 2004 1741032261 / 9781741032260 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 8vo 
170 indexed pages including bibliography. There is highlighting in some pages. New Questions for Contemporary Teachers: taking a socio-cultural approach to education is an introductory overview of sociology of education. Typically taught as a compulsory subject in education programs, the book covers the needs of both primary and secondary student teachers. From the same team that authored Understanding Education and Practising Education, this title comprises all new chapters reflecting current sociological and educational perspectives. It is divided into three distinctive sections: How to govern? Do we all get a fair go? and Where Now? * Section 1 examines the mechanisms of governance and rejects the simplistic "domination and coercion" model of the exercise of power. Each chapter within the section explores the ways in which social management occurs through careful and targeted regulation. * Section 2 investigates the questions about how society distributes wealth and access without lapsing into reductionism. It focuses on how notions such as "cultural capital" and "habitus" shape educational outcomes. * Section 3 examines the issues relevant to the future of education such as the advances in technology, the role the government plays in implementing school-based management practices and ways in which schools can become more globalised and become far more multi-national, multi-faith and multi-cultural geographic communities. Table of Contents: 1. Why ask new questions? Gordon Tait Part 1 - How do we govern? 2. What is the relationship between social governance and schooling? Gordon Tait 3. The rise and rise of testing: how does this shape identity? Daphne Meadmore 4. What do we mean by "risky kids"? Jill Brannock 5. What is the significance of literacy?

English Grammar: A Functional Approach, Collerson, John
20 Collerson, John English Grammar: A Functional Approach
Australia Primary English Teaching Association 1994 187562211X / 9781875622115 Reprint Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
152 indexed pages. reases in the front cover, name in the front fly. At a time when increasing attention is being given to grammar by teachers and others, this book presents an introduction to English grammar based on a functional approach. lt is not intended as a grammar for teaching directly to school students but as a resource for teachers themselves. A functional grammar is more appropriate for teachers than traditional grammar because it can be more directly related to the ways in which language is being used. Fleaders who have some familiarity with traditional grammar will find this functional approach different from the traditional one, but they will recognise quite a number of familiar landmarks. However, the book has been written on the assumption that many readers may not be familiar with any grammar, and everything is clearly explained as the text unfolds. While this book does not deal explicitly with the teaching of grammar, it is based on the belief that teachers should be confident in their knowledge of the grammatical system. For the more the teacher knows about how the language operates, the more insight he or she will have into how students are using language in their speech and writing. The sort of systematic knowledge of grammar offered by this book becomes a resource to be drawn on continually in talking with students about language. Name in the first page.
