This useful resource provides a complete plan for creating adoption-friendly environments in primary, secondary and specialist schools. The book is grounded on new research which gathered together testimonies from over 400 school staff members, adoptive parents and adoption specialists. With realistic consideration of pressures and limitations currently faced by schools, it gives advice on eight key areas for school development, including communicating with parents, training staff, using resources wisely and recognising children's individual needs. Completing the toolkit is a broad selection of photocopiable and downloadable plans for establishing adoption-friendly frameworks, and for demonstrating good practice to staff, pupils, families and school inspectors"

Play the Forest School way : woodland games, crafts and skills for adventurous kids

April 27, 2017
Houghton, Peter (Teacher), author.
London : Watkins, an imprint of Watkins Media Limited, 2016.
160 pages : illustrations ; 20 cm
"The rise of the Forest School movement in recent years is part of a groundswell of concern about the wellbeing of our children, with many media scare stories about child obesity, 'nature deficit disorder' (as described in Last Child in the Woods) and lack of exposure to risk. This woodland adventure book brings the activities and 'learning through nature' ethos of Forest School to the parents of nursery and primary school-age children. It's packed full of ideas, from making nature jewellery and whittling a bow and arrow to building a shelter and foraging for food; it also celebrates the Forest School philosophy of encouraging self-esteem, confidence and social skills through engagement with nature. As well as sharing Forest School's brilliant ideas for activities, this book encourages parents to follow aspects of the Forest School approach in the way they handle play sessions; in, for example, getting adults to engage actively while being careful to let the kids lead; in framing sessions with small rituals). Activity variations target different age groups, and there are ideas for small groups (for play dates, for example, or children's birthday parties) as well as things to do with just one or two children. While the book is aimed at parents, who are encouraged to guide the play, the activity instructions are written in a simple style so that children can read them too, and the illustrations are also intended to be enjoyed by children." --Publisher description.

The campus rape frenzy : the attack on due process at America's universities

April 19, 2017
Johnson, Robert David, 1967- author.
New York : Encounter Books, 2017.

The foundations of the frenzy -- Misleading through statistics -- The realities of "rape culture" -- Denying due process -- Media malpractice -- The witch-hunt mentality -- College athletes : myths and realities -- The witch hunt intensifies -- From campus to criminal law -- A new generation's contempt for civil rights.
"The panic about campus rape has helped stimulate-and has been fanned by-ideologically skewed campus sexual assault policies and lawless commands issued by federal bureaucrats to force the nation's all-too-compliant colleges and universities essentially to presume the guilt of accused students. The result has been a widespread disregard of such bedrock American principles as the presumption of innocence and the need for fair play. This book explores about two dozen of the many cases since 2010 in which innocent or probably innocent students have been branded as sex criminals and expelled or otherwise punished by their colleges. And it will show why all students-and, eventually, society as a whole-are harmed when our nation's universities abandon pursuit of truth and seek instead to accommodate the passions of the mob"--Provided by publisher.

No campus for white men : the transformation of higher education into hateful indoctrination

Greer, Scott, 1990-
xii, 219 pages ; 21 cm

Greer links such seemingly unrelated trends as "rape culture" hysteria and Black Lives Matter to an overall campus mindset intent on elevating and celebrating leftist-designated "protected classes" while intimidating, censoring, and punishing those who disagree with this perversely un-American agenda. He shows that today's campus madness may eventually dominate much more of America if it is not addressed and reversed soon.
