  • Cet article propose un tour d'horizon des usages des dessins d'enfants dans l'histoire de l'aide humanitaire à l'aide d'exemples, du Canada et d'ailleurs, tirés des recherches de l'auteure. Il se penche à la fois sur les usages des dessins par diverses organisations au cours des dernières décennies et sur les emplois que les historiens en ont faits. À l'aide d'outils empruntés à plusieurs disciplines, il propose des clefs de compréhension qui permettent de réfléchir à l'histoire de la psychologie enfantine, de la pédagogie, de l'art enfantin, des relations humanitaires entre générations, des droits des enfants et des perceptions juvéniles lors d'interventions humanitaires. Il dresse un historique du médium, de ses promoteurs ainsi que de ses détracteurs et propose un ensemble de pistes pour identifier, malgré les obstacles, des traces d'expressions enfantines.

  • This book is about supporting all children to overcome their individual challenges to literacy.  It is about considering the whole child when exploring options for interventions and accepting that many children have more than one need.  It examines the many factors that can contribute to literacy difficulties and highlights the importance of understanding the wider context when considering them.
    The text draws on the latest research in education, psychology , neurology and sociology to illustrate how children's literacy development can be mapped against difficulties in other areas of their lives.  This is a ground-breaking and accessible book for all trainee and existing primary teachers working with young children who are experiencing difficulty with reading, written and spoken language.

  • With recent research findings by The National Literacy Trust indicating that 1 in 2 children enjoy writing, should primary school teachers be using it more? There are opportunities for teaching and learning writing in all subjects and all lessons.
    Inviting Writing supports you to find these opportunities and to plan, assess and develop children's writing for a range of purposes in a range of styles. Chapters cover every curriculum subject and explore the unique writing opportunities for each one. It helps you to focus on teaching the skills of composition and on taking writing forward. Examples of good practice are included throughout, alongside suggestions for teaching activities. This book also outlines the many ways in which children's writing can be evidenced and encourages you to reconsider the ways in which children's progress in writing can be tracked and captured.
    This is a practical guide to teaching writing across the curriculum.

It explores the theory behind the teaching of language and communication skills and includes lots of practical advice on how to translate this into the classroom.
