The Cambridge Primary Review Research Surveys is the outcome of the Cambridge Primary Review – England’s biggest enquiry into primary education for over forty years. Fully independent of government, it was launched in 2006 to investigate the condition and future of primary education at a time of change and uncertainty and after two decades of almost uninterrupted reform. Ranging over ten broad themes and drawing on a vast array of evidence, the Review published thiry-one interim reports, including twenty-eight surveys of published research, provoking media headlines and public debate, before presenting its final report and recommendations. This book brings together the twenty-eight research surveys, specially commissioned from sixty-five leading academics in the areas under scrutiny and now revised and updated, to create what is probably the most comprehensive overview and evaluation of research in primary education yet published. A particular feature is the prominence given to international and comparative perspectives. With an introduction from Robin Alexander, the Review’s director, the book is divided into eight sections, covering: children’s lives and voices: school, home and community children’s development, learning, diversity and needs aims, values and contexts for primary education the structure and content of primary education outcomes, standards and assessment in primary education teaching in primary schools: structures and processes teaching in primary schools: training, development and workforce reform policy frameworks: governance, funding, reform and quality assurance. The Cambridge Primary Review Research Surveys is an essential reference tool for professionals, researchers, students and policy-makers working in the fields of early years, primary and secondary education.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1883 edition. Excerpt: ... here given. The tales are told simply and as shortly as possible. From an artistic point of view, we cannot but feel that the beauty of the myth is often lost in the process of condensation, though for purposes of instruction perhaps it is better to relate many stories shortly than a few at length. But when we find twenty-four chapters, some of them with Buch comprehensive titles as "Artemis," or "Thebes," brought within the compass of ninetyfive pages, we are too much reminded of the Hundert Erzahlungen, one to a page. The English reader feels that he is being fed too fast This fault is, of course, not due to the translator. As we are not acquainted with the original, we cannot tell where to assign the blame for one or two inaccuracies, which, though not of great importance, are yet undesirable in a work like this, sure to be used for educational purposes. Why, when the Greek names of the gods are carefully preserved, is the brother of Zeus and Poseidon called Pluto (p. 4), when his name, Haides, is quite as simple, and has the advantage of being correct? Again, we are told that "several of the details have been supplied by the ancient works of art which have come down to us," but it is surely not to them that we owe the information (on page 102) that Perseus killed his grandfather by throwing "a metal ball called a discus.' Two more small points in the story of the Argonauts call for notice; we see no reason for the omission of the episode of the visit of the heroes on their return journey to the land of the Phaiekians and their reception by Alkinoos and Arete, nor have we ever heard before that the home of the Sirens was the sea (p. 168). Apollonios Bhodios tells us they dwelt on "a fair and...

Despite great ferment and activity among historians of science in recent years, the history of physiology after 1850 has received little attention. Gerald Geison makes an important contribution to our knowledge of this neglected area by investigating the achievements of English physiologists at the Cambridge School from 1870 to 1900. He describes individual scientists, their research, the scientific issues affecting their work, and socio-institutional influences on the group. He pays special attention to the personality and contributions of Michael Foster, founding father of the Cambridge School. Foster's specific research interest was the origin of the rhythmic heartbeat, and the author contends that the school itself descended from and developed around this concern. Originally published in 1978. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Children, their World, their Educationis the definitive text for students, teachers, researchers, educational leaders and all who are interested in primary education. As the culmination of the Cambridge Primary Review, the most comprehensive enquiry into English primary education for half a century, its publication provoked instant and dramatic headlines. Widespread support from teachers and eminent public figures demonstrated that the book had identified the issues that really mattered. Ministerial unease showed that here were findings that politicians could not ignore. But Children, their World, their Educationis much more than a report. It is an unrivalled educational compendium that systematically covers the issues that are central to the daily work of students, teachers and heads. For trainee teachers on undergraduate and postgraduate courses it effectively maps the territory of primary education and provides the context, information and insight which are essential to the development of classroom skill. Its vast range of carefully evaluated evidence makes it a core resource for those undertaking research and advanced study. Its direct engagement with the policy process during a period of unprecedented change makes it an indispensable tool for policy analysis. It places England "s education system in the global context, and combines evidence on recent developments with a vision of how primary education should be. Part 1sets the scene and tracks primary education policy since the1960s. Part 2examines children "s development and learning, their needs and aspirations, and their lives in a diverse society and fragile world. Part 3explores what goes on in schools, from the vital early years to educational aims and values, the curriculum, pedagogy and classroom practice, assessment, standards and school organisation. Part 4deals with the system as a whole: educational ages and stages, the work and training of primary teachers, school leadership, local authorities, funding, governance and policy. Part 5pulls everything together with 78 conclusions and 75 recommendations for policy and practice. Companion volume: The Cambridge Primary Review Research Surveys, edited by Robin Alexander with Christine Doddington, John Gray, Linda Hargreaves and Ruth Kershner.
