The Food Chain: A Game of Choice, Allaby, Michael
2 Allaby, Michael The Food Chain: A Game of Choice
U. K. Andre Deutsch 1984 0233976817 / 9780233976815 1st Edition Hard Cover Good 12mo 
176 pages including an introduction with 5 pages and 500 numbered paragraphs.This book is a game, like the adventure games you may have played before, and in it you play the part of a ruler. As you read the 500 numbered paragraphs, you have suggested choices which lead you from paragraph to paragraph, just as you would in an adventure game, but the choices you have to make are concerned with the real world, and with feeding hungry people. You will meet famine, civil war, food riots and have to decide between the different claims of people in your country. You may be tempted to give up, but there are successful solutions, only the search for them is long and hard. When you see pictures on television of starving people, usually their misery is due to a local catastrophe. Perhaps there has been an earthquake, or an unusually long drought, or perhaps they are running away from a war that has destroyed their homes and their farms. We send help to such people. We send medicines, blankets, clothes, and we send food. They can be helped because we can see quite clearly what it is they need. This book is people we see less often. They suffer because they are poor; they are poor in ways we ?nd it dif?cult to understand. Do you receive pocket money each week? How much? Let us suppose you are given $1 - and many young people receive more than that. This means that not counting birthday or Christmas money, or special spending money for holidays, you receive $52 a year. That is about as much as the average person earns in a year in Bhutan, the world’s poorest country. That amount must buy food, clothes, fuel for cooking and heating, and it must pay for the home and its repair.

Smart Thinking: Skills for Critical Understanding and Writing, Allen, Matthew
3 Allen, Matthew Smart Thinking: Skills for Critical Understanding and Writing
Australia Oxford University Press 2012 0195517334 / 9780195517330 2nd Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xi + 193 pages including bibliography. For tertiary students. Smart Thinking: Skills for Critical Understanding and Writing is a practical, step-by-step guide to improving skills in analysis, critical thinking, and the effective communication of arguments and explanations. Accessible and straight forward in its style and goals, Smart Thinking is nevertheless based on strong epistemological foundations. It treats reasoning as an aspect of communication, rather than as an abstract exercise in logic, combining practical advice and theoretical rigour in a way that facilitates a deeper understanding of the processes of smart thinking without being confusing. The book not only provides detailed advice on how to practise better analytical skills, but also demonstrates how these skills can be used in research and writing. In particular, it stresses the vital importance of developing arguments and explanations that are internally coherent, and that take account of their audience and context. Divided into short, easily managed sections, the book is designed to meet the needs of under graduate students. It contains exercises and detailed answers to assist in self-learning, and includes an extensive glossary of concepts.

The Wow Factor: Global Research Compendium on the Impact of the Arts in Education, Bamford, Anne
12 Bamford, Anne The Wow Factor: Global Research Compendium on the Impact of the Arts in Education
Germany Waxmann Verlag GmbH 2009 3830916175 / 9783830916178 2nd Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
178 pages. More than ever before, the arts are shaping and influencing our daily lives through the media and the creative industries. The arts are no longer confined to museums and theatres, but are adding value to our national economies and improving the quality of education. This has implications for arts education. However, unlike other subjects taught at schools, the arts have rarely made their purpose clear: Why are they taught? What is good arts education? And what are the benefits of teaching creative subjects or using creative ways to teach? In 2004 Professor Anne Bamford conducted the first international analysis of arts education research for UNESCO, in partnership with IFACCA and the Australia Council. Comparing data and case studies from more than 60 countries, the book analyses the differences between 'education in the arts' and 'education through the arts'. While appreciating that arts programmes are embedded in their unique social and cultural contexts, Professor Bamford develops internationally comparable standards for quality arts education. In addition, she identifies a number of concrete educational, cultural, and social benefits of arts education. This definitive work is of major interest to policy-makers, educators and artists.

16 Ben-Tovim, Atarah; Boyd, Douglas You Can Make Music! It's Never Too Late to Start
UK Victor Gollancz 1986 0575037830 / 9780575037830 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
143 pages. Have you ever wished that you could play a musical instrument? Maybe you started to learn but gave up in frustration, believing you were 'no good at music'. Perhaps you were told at school that you were 'unmusical' or 'tone deaf'. , Atarah Ben-Tovim and Douglas Boyd maintain that nearly every adult is musical enough to experience the deep satisfaction of playing an instrument. They stress that age is no hindrance tolearning and may even be a positive advantage. From a unique, ten years' research programme, they have developed a practical and reliable system of testing musical aptitude; and they have shown that most people who fail on an instrument do so because it was wrongly selected. This book enables adults to use the same step-by-step approach as the authors' previous and highly successful book, "The Right Instrument for Your Child". Charts and questionnaires tell you if now is the right time to begin learning an instrument. They also assess your latent musical ability; compare the advantages and disadvantages of different instruments; and, finally, reveal the instrument to which you are physically and temperamentally best suited and which most easily fits in with your current lifestyle. Having selected the right instrument you will need a wide range of information on purchasing it and finding a teacher. For this, the Beginners' Information Pack at the back of the book is an invaluable aid. Atarah Ben-Tovim and Douglas Boyd are the ideal pair to demystify music and to understand beginners’ problems. Atarah was a child progidy on the flute, while Douglas Boyd, a brilliant linguist, was a musical drop-out. He gave up the piano after three years of agony yet went on to spend 20 fulfilling years in the music business.

She gives real-life examples of maddeningly illogical aspects of everyday life - from forms and traffic signs to political speeches and advertising - and provides all the tools of reasoning to help avoid common errors in logic.
