Winner of the United Kingdom Literacy Association's Author Award 2011 for its contribution to extending children's literacy. Praise for the book: 'This book is about making readers. A compact summary of its contents would not do it justice. It is the accountof a life's work and it deserves thanks and readers. *****'. - Margaret Meek, Books for Keeps on-line, Number 185, November 2010. 'This book is a cornucopia of varied pleasures, offering something for all tastes, presented with an awareness of the complexities of the field and communicated with commitment, enthusiasm and deep knowledge'. - Eve Bearne, English 4-11, the primary school journal of The English Association, Number 42, Summer 2011. Choosing and Using Fiction and Non-Fiction 3-11 is a guide to the many kinds of text we want children to encounter, use and enjoy during their nursery and primary school years. So children’s non-fiction literature – including autobiography, biography, information and reference texts – is given equal status with fiction – nursery rhymes, picturebooks, novels, traditional tales, playscripts and poetry. The author addresses important issues and allows the voices of teachers, reviewers and children to be heard. The book supports teachers as they help children on their journey to becoming insightful and critical readers of non-fiction and sensitive and reflective readers of fiction. It also contains suggestions for practice which are in the spirit of the more flexible and creative approach to learning towards which primary schools are moving. It includes: help on using criteria to select quality texts of all kinds; annotated booklists for each kind of text for different age groups; suggestions for keeping a balance between print and screen-based texts; case studies showing teachers and children using texts in interesting and imaginative ways to support learning in English lessons and across the curriculum; advice on developing children’s visual and multimodal literacy; guidance on using the school library and embedding study skills in children’s wider purposes and learning; critiques of key theoretical perspectives and research projects. Although the main readership will be primary and student teachers, it is hoped that the book will be of interest and use to anyone concerned with the role of texts in children’s learning.

This indispensable resource, for teachers of pupils aged 7-13 years, consists of a series of graduated lesson plans aimed at improving children’s speaking and listening skills, their self-confidence and their motivation to learn, ultimately leading to better school performance. The scheme was developed and tested in schools during a four year period with over three thousand children and their teachers, and focuses on class and group activities that are enjoyable as well as instructive. All pupils are able to participate regardless of background, academic standing or facility in English, and the skills acquired are central to the National Curriculum for England and Wales Key Stages 2 and 3. Each lesson worksheet includes learning objectives, guidance on preparation and organisation, an activity guide, and follow-up suggestions, all presented in a clear and simple manner to lead the teacher step by step through the session. The materials are grouped into four levels of difficulty which combine to build a powerful range of abilities associated with persuasive and presentational speech, dialogue and debate, as well as developing the children’s command, use, and articulation of English. Each level consists of twelve starter lessons suitable for class-based group work, with sections preparing pupils for a variety of class competitions including public speaking, poetry reading and debating. The activities link naturally with other areas of the curriculum, and topics already being studied can easily be incorporated. In a parallel controlled research project highly significant gains in a nationally standardised test of non-verbal reasoning were made over a seven month period by children who followed the activities for one lesson a week compared to those who did not. These were well in excess of what would be expected for their increased age. Particularly high gains were made by children of lesser ability and those for whom English was an additional language. The improvements recorded were later confirmed by the schools’ own National Curriculum assessments of progress against targets, where on average the project children exceeded substantially the end of year forecasts made by their teachers.

Dies ist die Geschichte des größten Diebes aller Zeiten! Peter Nimble ist blind, aber er versteht es schon als kleiner Junge, seine verbleibenden Sinne bestens zu nutzen, und hat sich zu einem perfekten Dieb gemausert. Eines Tages stiehlt er eine geheimnisvolle Kiste, in der drei Paar Augen liegen. Als er das erste Paar einsetzt, findet er sich plötzlich in einer fremden Welt wieder. Dort wird er für eine besondere Mission auserwählt: Peter soll das »Verschwundene Königreich« aus den Händen eines heimtückischen Königs befreien. Mithilfe der magischen Augen und seines verzauberten Freundes Sir Tode beginnt für Peter eine atemberaubende Reise ... »Genau das, was Leser zwischen 9 und 24 von einer magischen Geschichte erwarten: teils Heldengeschichte, teils Waisensaga und absolut fesselnd.« Wall Street Journal »Mit der Fingerfertigkeit eines Gauklers schreibt Auxier Prosa, die alle Sinne anregt.« Kirkus Reviews

When asked by the school inspector what he thought of poetry, an eleven year old replied that "it's all la-dida and daffodils, isn't it?" In his primary school the boy had come across very little poetry apart from nursery rhymes, snatches of rhyming verse and a few comic pieces and nonsense poems. Poetry to him was something arcane, not really related to his own life. He had studied no powerful, challenging, contemplative, arresting, quirky poems and had written very few poems himself. His teacher admitted that he was no English specialist, had received few ideas at college on the teaching of poetry and didn't really know where to start. As children progress through the primary school they need to be exposed to a rich diet of poetry and encouraged to read, perform and write it themselves. Providing a varied and stimulating environment is essential if is to flourish. In addition, children need specifi c guidance and ideas to start them off writing their own poems. This book, written by a former teacher and school inspector, and popular and widely published children's poet, offers an accessible, practical and structured programme for the teaching of this sometimes neglected aspect of the English curriculum.

Peterson beantwortet diese Frage humorvoll, überraschend und informativ.

Doch was bitte erklärt uns das Nervensystem eines Hummers über unsere Erfolgschancen im Leben? Und warum beteten die alten Ägypter die Fähigkeit zu genauer Beobachtung als höchste Gottheit an? Dr. Peterson diskutiert Begriffe wie Disziplin, Freiheit, Abenteuer und Verantwortung und kondensiert Wahrheit und Weisheit der Welt in 12 praktischen Lebensregeln. »12 Rules For Life« erschüttert die Grundannahmen von moderner Wissenschaft, Glauben und menschlicher Natur.

Zur Beerdigung ihres Vaters kehrt die junge Anthropologin August zurück nach New York, Stadt ihrer Kindheit. Hier, auf den Straßen Brooklyns, ist sie aufgewachsen. Hier hat sie Angela, Gigi und Sylvia getroffen, ihre drei Freundinnen, mit denen sie unzertrennlich über das glühende Pflaster Brooklyns der 70er-Jahre zog. Weiße verließen das Viertel, Drogendealer und traumatisierte Vietnamveteranen waren ihre Nachbarn, doch mit ihren Freundinnen fühlte sich August unverwundbar. Nichts schien unmöglich, wenn sie nur zusammenhielten. Doch haben sie dieser Welt etwas entgegenzusetzen? – »Ein anderes Brooklyn«, Finalist für den National Book Award, stand auf der New-York-Times-Bestsellerliste und wurde hymnisch besprochen. Eindringlich und poetisch erzählt es von Freundschaft, Erinnerung und Aufwachsen in einem Brooklyn, das es so nicht mehr gibt.
