Speaking openly about their ideas on race, these nine and ten year-olds show they have internalised the prevailing western mindset - whatever their own ethnicity. And this mindset is racist. Research has long been needed into what children themselves think about cultural diversity and about efforts to counter racism in their schools. Here is the empirical, child-centred research that tells educators what they need to know. It was conducted with a sample of Year 5 pupils in two predominantly white and two diverse schools, all of whom were themselves involved in the research process. The book is suffused with their vibrant, profound and original voices and their often surprising ideas.The children's views are accompanied by the researcher's sociologically informed close observation of school life and the views and practice of the teachers, and the book concludes with the important implications she identifies for policy and practice in schools."It's not Just about Black and White, Miss" is an enlightening and enjoyable read for primary teachers and trainees and offers important new grounded information for policy makers and school managers.

This text is for teachers who teach or plan to teach traveller children. It sets out what teachers, traveller advisors and other professionals need to know about traveller culture, values, lifestyle, economic experience and learning, and relates this information to the educational issues arising from travellers' learning requirements. The authors use their experience and research to deepen teachers' understanding of the traveller child as a new or late learner rather than as a failed learner. They explain a variety of approaches and perspectives on travellers and schools and help teachers to reconstruct the curriculum appropriately. The relevant legislation is clarified and analysed, and there is guidance on providing equal educational opportunity to traveller children in light of the discrimination and hostility they face. Case studies are provided.

Doch dieser Glaube ist nicht nur falsch, er hindert auch unser persönliches Fortkommen und schränkt unser Potenzial ein. Die Psychologin Carol Dweck beweist: Entscheidend für die Entwicklung eines Menschen ist nicht das Talent, sondern das eigene Selbstbild. Was es damit auf sich hat, wie Ihr eigenes Selbstbild aussieht und wie Sie diese Erkenntnisse für sich persönlich nutzen können, erfahren Sie in diesem Buch.
