Summary:     There is a need to rethink education studies in these times of change, in terms of literacies and technologies, conflict and environmental concerns, and a need for authoritative texts addressing the key areas within education; sociology, child and infant development, social justice, policy, social welfare and development - and multiculturalism. This popular text provides approaches to the theoretical perspectives and frameworks and focuses on the relevant literature surrounding multiculturalism for today's students. This new edition includes a completely new contemporary chapter on the notion of multicultural citizenship and new integrationist policies in England, including the latest research on citizenship, immigration and integration as applied to worldwide education policy-making. Including extensive examples of empirical research, study questions, updated references and website resources, Multiculturalism and Education 2e is essential reading for all those studying multiculturalism, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, within education and the wider social sciences today.

Buod:   Bakit pa isasalin ang naisulat at nailathala na sa Ingles? Bakit pa kailanganga isalin ang nalathalang aklat na Contemprary Social Philosophy? Sa apatnapu’t anim na taong pagtututo ko ng Pilosopiya, at ang tatlumpu’t walong taon nito ay sa wikang Filipino, isang bagay ang natanto ko: mas makabuluhan at mas “may dating ang pagtuturo ng Pilosopiya sa Filipino kaysa Ingles. Totoong sa simula, may kaunting pangamba sa panig ng mag-aaral, pati na rin sa poanig ng guro, ang mangahas sa pamimilosopiya sa wikang Filipino. Ngunit ang pangambang ito ay nababawasan kung may naiambag nang aklat sa Filipino. Kung kaya’t mayroon nang aklat para sa Pilosopiya ng Tao, Pilosopiyang Moral, at Pilosopiya ng Relihiyon. Ang aklat na ito ay para sa kursong Pilosopiyang Panlipunan. – May akda

The open hearted way to open adoption helping your child grow up whole

The open-hearted way to open adoption : helping your child grow up whole

Language: English  

Publisher: Lanham : Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc., [2013]

Summary:     Prior to 1990, fewer than five percent of domestic infant adoptions were open. In 2012, ninety percent or more of adoption agencies are recommending open adoption. Yet these agencies do not often or adequately prepare either adopting parents or birth parents for the road ahead of them! The adult parties in open adoptions are left floundering. There are many resources on why to do open adoption, but what about how? Open adoption isn't just something parents do when they exchange photos, send emails, share a visit. It's a lifestyle that may feel intrusive at times, be difficult or inconvenient at other times. Tensions can arise even in the best of circumstances. But knowing how to handle these situations and how to continue to make arrangements work for the child involved is paramount. This book offers readers the tools and the insight to do just that. It covers common open-adoption situations and how real families have navigated typical issues successfully. Like all useful parenting books, it provides parents with the tools to come to answers on their own, and answers questions that might not yet have come up. Through their own stories and those of other families of open adoption, Lori and Crystal review the secrets to success, the pitfalls and challenges, the joys and triumphs. By putting the adopted child at the center, families can come to enjoy the benefits of open adoption and mitigate the challenges that may arise. More than a how-to, this book shares a mindset, a heartset, that can be learned and internalized, so parents can choose to act out of love and honesty throughout their child's growing up years, helping that child to grow up whole.
