Book Excerpt :

Beloved cartoonist Robert Fun has earned a devoted following for his circle-shaped newspaper comic strip, celebrating the wholesome American family by drawing inspiration from his real home life... but the Fun Family bears some dark secrets. As their idyllic world collapses and the kids are forced to pick up the pieces, can they escape the cycle of art imitating life imitating art? In his debut graphic novel, Benjamin Frisch presents a surreal deconstruction of childhood, adulthood, and good old American obsession.

Book Short Summary:

Routledge Handbook of Counter-Narratives is a landmark volume providing students, university lecturers, and practitioners with a comprehensive and structured guide to the major topics and trends of research on counter-narratives.

In sum, the contributions in this handbook survey how counter-narratives unfold power to shape and change various fields. Fields investigated in this handbook are organizations and professional settings, issues of education, struggles and concepts of identity and belonging, the political field, as well as literature and ideology. The handbook is framed by a comprehensive introduction as well as a summarizing chapter providing an outlook on future research avenues. Its direct and clear appeal will support university learning and prompt both students and researchers to further investigate the arena of narrative research.

CODING MANUAL INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE FROM THE CHAPTER AUTHORS, AND THEIR E-MAIL ADDRESSES CAN BE FOUND ON PAGE XV OF THE BOOK. Family studies is an area that has enjoyed the benefits of conceptual and methodological advances in recent years including the widespread adoption of observational research techniques. The selection of an appropriate coding system is critical to achieving a better understanding of the complex family processes related to normative and pathological development. This book presents 14 examples of family observational coding systems, chosen for the wide range of constructs and phenomena they capture. Each system is described in detail, and excerpts from the coding manual are presented (links to the full coding manuals are available to purchasers of the book at LEA's Web site, www.erlbaum.com). Each chapter follows a consistent outline, so that the different coding systems can be more easily compared to one another. They include the theoretical underpinnings of the measure, its reliability and validity, the coding process, strategies for coder training, and examples of studies in which it has been used. This volume will prove invaluable to students and researchers in family studies, clinicians, and other practitioners who need to interpret data from family observations.

Alix Chamberlain is a woman who gets what she wants and has made a living, with her confidence-driven brand, showing other women how to do the same. So she is shocked when her babysitter, Emira Tucker, is confronted while watching the Chamberlains' toddler one night, walking the aisles of their local high-end supermarket. The store's security guard, seeing a young black woman out late with a white child, accuses Emira of kidnapping two-year-old Briar. A small crowd gathers, a bystander films everything, and Emira is furious and humiliated. Alix resolves to make things right. But Emira herself is aimless, broke, and wary of Alix's desire to help. At twenty-five, she is about to lose her health insurance and has no idea what to do with her life. When the video of Emira unearths someone from Alix's past, both women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, and each other. With empathy and piercing social commentary, Such a Fun Age explores the stickiness of transactional relationships, what it means to make someone "family," and the complicated reality of being a grown up. It is a searing debut for our times.

Book Short Summary:

Arguing for life, moral and values education as a bedrock for the original goals of school education, this monograph explores how life and values education is conceptualised and imparted in Greater China. Under a globalized, transnational, and technological world, where there has been an increase in people’s mobility, in information and cultural exchanges, there is also a growing emphasis on personal and professional ethics. Against this context, life, moral and values education has gained attention for its impact on shaping students' characters as future citizens. However, the cultivation of these values is made deeply diversified and complex by varying interpretations of "life education" and "values education" across societies, given that different societies are influenced by different socio-cultural traditions, educational ideologies and religious beliefs. The means and approaches towards life education also vary vastly from formal school subjects, school-based programmes as well as teachers and peers’ role modelling, community services, extra-curricular activities, school discipline, charity work, pastoral care, and school ethos. Recognising this inherent diversity and complexity in the approach to and the dissemination of life education, the contributors to this volume survey the practice of life education in Greater China so far, suggesting that life education is most effective when it is "diversified, dynamic and developmental across contexts". This book will provide the opportunity for engaging in important and serious debates about the future and the values that will underpin it and will prove of special interest to scholars and practitioners working on education policies curriculum development and teacher education in Greater China.

Book Short Summary:

`The ideas are excellent and well laid out... This is an innovative approach to social skills training for students with Asperger's Syndrome who will tolerate acting, and for a group leader with energy and commitment to drama.' -Speech and Language Therapy in Practice `Schneider's enthusiasm for the subject and her passion to improve life skills of young people is very evident and encourages the reader to progress...As a catalogue of practical ideas with built-in resources, this is a useful book for support groups and families wishing to create a theatre group. Acting Antics has an easy-to-read format and includes activities that can be initiated with minimum preparation and resources.' -Children Now Magazine, 2007 This fun and inspiring step-by-step program provides the full set of tools for developing social understanding in children with Asperger Syndrome (AS) through drama. Cindy B. Schneider explains how the central processes in acting - including making and interpreting inferences from non-verbal cues, taking another's perspective, and formulating language - can be highly effective ways of addressing social cognition deficits in children with AS. Acting Antics contains a wide repertoire of activities and ideas for immediate application at home, in the classroom, in therapy workshops or social groups, ranging from initial warm up techniques, through paired activities, to larger group scenes and staging a show. Helpful appendices provide questionnaire forms to enable both the child and the program leader to assess and monitor the child's understanding of their roles, along with reproducible scripts and suitable scene designs. This complete, practical program provides a wealth of enjoyable educational ideas for parents, teachers, and therapists of children with Asperger Syndrome.

Book Short Summary:

It's 1966; a nasty war is raging in Vietnam and in the City Room of Seattle's favorite newspaper, the Post-Intelligencer. The battle is with its old archrival, the Seattle Times. The P-I has the edge on talent with writers like Frank Herbert, the science fiction author who would go on to write the Dune novels, and Tom Robbins, who created a new genre with Even Cowgirls Get the Blues and is now on the P-I copy desk writing headlines. Into this ever-growing pool of talent, the reporter-photographer team of twenty-five-year-old Rick Sangaster and World War II Marine Corps veteran and pure-blood Sioux Indian Hawkeye O'Sullivan are on the front line. Each of these men has problems from their pasts, as well as their present, but when it comes to reporting the news, or at times creating the news themselves, they're far ahead of their contemporaries in both the P-I City Room as well as the Times.

“Where are we?” Funeesha asked, looking around in disbelief. “Funtartica,” the Fun Queen replied. “The home of the Funearians.” At that moment, Funeesha’s attention turned towards two children and an adult running towards them. “Funeesha! Funeesha!” One of them was yelling. As they got closer, she saw it was Nayfun. “Nayfun!” she screamed and ran towards him. They hugged each other and both jumped around with excitement. As she jumped, her eyes caught a glimpse of the adult standing with them. Funeesha gasped, stunned by what she saw. She froze and gazed in astonishment. “Grandad!” she screamed and leapt towards him. He picked her up, wrapped his arms around her tightly, and spun around several times, as tears filled both their eyes. “I've missed hugging you so much,” she said. “I am always with you, Funeesha,” said Grandad, as he comforted her. They stood holding each other for a moment with no words-- just tears of joy.
