The Essential Guide to Baby's First Year offers new parents a clear, comforting companion devoid of the "musts" and "shoulds" that abound in other new baby books. Rather than focusing on rigid guidelines to development, it acknowledges that babies are people, and they do things in their own time and ways. The authors are both parents, one of them with the additional benefit of being an experienced pediatrician, and their advice and suggestions are all based on medical knowledge and the latest advice on the baby grapevine. The Essential Guide to Baby's First Year content also includes: The moment of birth and beyond - what a newborn looks like, what the tests will be like, feeding, bonding, and taking the baby home. Clear explanations of milestones for the first year of life, broken up by quarters - and how they may vary from baby to baby. Advice and suggestions on feeding, caring for, and interacting with baby over the year. Teething, sleeping, crawling, pooping - how things happen and change as the months pass. Common illnesses, appropriate foods, necessary equipment, and more.

Divorcing or separating feels like overwhelmingly adult business, but if children are involved it is very much their business as well. This book is written for separating mothers and fathers, for their extended families and prospective new partners, and for the professionals who support and advise them. Above all, this book is written to help those grown-ups do better by children. This book is full of ways to minimise the impact of separation. You'll discover – often in their own words – what children of different ages are likely to understand and feel about the process, along with ways to help them cope. There's research to help guide you through those dreadfully difficult decisions about access and custody; information about money and legal matters; and suggestions about handovers, holidays and more. "Mutual parenting" is not easy to achieve, but it is the best possible way forward from family breakdown.

The first year of college represents an enormous milestone in students' lives. Whether attending a four-year or two-year institution of higher education, living on campus or at home, or enrolled in a highly selective school or a college with an open-admissions policy, students are challenged in unique and demanding ways during their first year. Although many students rise to the challenges they face, for some the demands are too great. Retention rates beyond the first year are disappointing: one third of first-year students seriously consider leaving college during their first term, and ultimately one half of all students who start college complete it. What are the factors that impact students during their first year? How can the academic and social experiences of first-year students be optimized? What can we do to improve retention rates to maximize the number of students who complete college? Improving the First Year of College employs a variety of perspectives from leading researchers and student-service providers to address these questions and examine the first year of college. This volume also highlights the development of learning communities and coaching, as well as how technology impacts students' first year. Perhaps most important, the book provides examples of "best practices," as determined through research by leaders in the field, to permit educators to draw on their experiences.

The approach of A First-Year Course in Criminal Law: Trials, Appeals, Theories, Third Edition focuses students on preparing to discuss a single case per lecture. The author’s philosophy is “Teach one case a day and do it well.” To help students understand the big picture as well as the details, the organization strives for unification rather than departmentalization. Rather than treat crimes and defenses as “tubs on their own bottoms,” the defenses within the crimes are presented. In other words, the book brings out that crime occurs only in the absence of fully or partially successful exculpatory pleas. Although homicide is the crime that organizes the book, the elements and scope of other crimes are presented within the context of the law of homicide. Comprehension of assault, burglary, kidnapping, mayhem, robbery, and rape is crucial to the cases used to present the law of felony murder. Those crimes are analyzed in the cases, questions, and notes sufficiently to provide students with competency in the grammar of those crimes. New to the Third Edition: More patient explication of chapter introductions and sub-sections Reorganization of questions and notes to improve flow and avoid unintended redundancies Improved internal cross-references Increased emphasis on the function of mental illness in the role of fear in homicide cases Enhanced searchable citations Elaborated index Accounts for intervening changes in the law

What constitutes better schooling for today's youth? In 1984 educational theorist Theodore R. Sizer formulated nine Common Principles to answer this question and launched The Coalition of Essential Schools, an organization of schools attempting to change their own structure, curriculum, pedagogy, and power relations according to Sizer's Principles. This important book, the first comprehensive look at Coalition schools, charts the course of reform at eight charter member schools. Donna E. Muncey and Patrick J. McQuillan, experts in anthropology as well as education, conducted a five-year ethnographic study to understand what happened in Coalition schools. The authors looked at curricular and pedagogical developments; how changes affected individual students, teachers, administrators, and other school personnel; and how American cultural beliefs influenced efforts to change.
