Building on her award-winning research (featured in Playing Their Way into Literacies) which emphasizes that play is an early literacy, Wohlwend has developed a curricular framework for children ages 3 to 8. The Literacy Playshop curriculum engages children in creating their own multimedia productions, positioning them as media makers rather than passive recipients of media messages. The goal is to teach young children to critically interpret the daily messages they receive in popular entertainment that increasingly blur toys, stories, and advertising. The first half of this practical resource features case studies that show how six early childhood teachers working together in teacher study groups developed and implemented play-based literacy learning and media production. The second half of the book provides a Literacy Playshop framework with professional development and classroom activities, discussion questions, and technology try-it sections. This user-friendly book will inspire and support teachers in designing their own Literacy Playshops.

Adland is a ground-breaking examination of modern advertising, from its origins and evolution to the current advertising landscape. Bestselling author and journalist Mark Tungate examines key developments in advertising, from copy adverts, radio and television, to the opportunities afforded by the explosion of digital media and then interviews leading names in advertising today, including Jean-Marie Dru, Sir Alan Parker, Sir John Hegarty and Sir Martin Sorrell, as well as 20th century industry luminaries such as Phil Dusenberry and George Lois. Exploring the roots of the advertising industry in New York and London, from Hopkins and Lasker to the Mad Men of the 50s, Tungate then covers today's big communication groups and the emerging markets of Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America. Adland offers a comprehensive examination of a global industry and suggests ways in which it is likely to develop in the future.

Lessons Learned will have you Laughing. Crying. Shouting. By most standards, Brian Scott Sherman is an ordinary man, who's had experiences like most of us-some comical, idiotic, breathtaking, and joyous. When he began sharing his stories, colleagues and friends suggested he put them in a book. So he wrote Lessons Learned. Often called the "real life Clark Griswold," Sherman's experiences will touch your heart and inspire you to live each moment, love your family and friends, and follow adventure where it might take you, at least some of the time. From having a man die in his arms, to several near misses with death, to the gut-wrenching pain of leaving his family behind to serve his country, divorce, infidelity by a spouse, a troubled pregnancy, and the tragic accident that took his brother's life, Sherman has lived a lifetime in a few decades. His mother has won millions in the lottery, he has created a pop culture icon, and gotten involved with marketing James Dean's tomb and more. Each story is followed by lessons he's learned from to encourage and inspire you. Experience the life and adventures of Brian Scott Sherman. "Lessons Learned comes across as honest and endearing, God-fearing writing." - Paul Frazier, Adjunct Professor, Webster University "Lessons Learned will definitely blow your mind!" - Kathryn Hutchins, Book Enthusiast
