    How Poems Work: Meanings, techniques and effects in 100 poems from Beowulf to the Iraq War

    Reward Points Policy You will earn 0 Catt credits for buying this product.

    Readers of poetry are often told to leave poems alone - to learn them by heart or to enjoy how they sound and leave it at that. This is all very well, except for those readers who have to study poetry at school or university. Or other readers who don't yet enjoy poems because they are daunted by their seemingly impenetrable meanings or inaccessible techniques.

    In this annotated anthology, Robert Gullifer and Matthew Jenkinson demystify poetry while showing that there are many good reasons to pick poems apart. From Beowulf to the Iraq War, a millennium of poetry is presented to give readers a sense of how poems have evolved since we first started writing them down.

    Hairdresser or Footballer? Bridging the gender gap in schools

    Reward Points Policy You will earn 0 Catt credits for buying this product.

    Teaching is a profession where we are persistently trying to ensure that our children have the best possible future, yet gender is still a huge hurdle in terms of expectations. We are setting children up to fail because society instills certain messages in them that can often stop them from achieving what they desire and as teachers, we aren’t always opposing them. Often, teachers are so removed from this issue that they don’t see it going on in their classroom. This book provides thinking points for teachers and useful strategies for schools to overcome this divide and provide equal opportunities for all children. It’s commonplace to see this divide in newspapers and on social media, it’s something that needs to be addressed. As educators, we need to be at the forefront of this revolution.

    Parent choice, diversity of school provision and the idea of a quasi-market in schools have dominated education policy for the last thirty years since the passage of the 1988 Great Education Reform Act. But has the market worked in the way that was intended? Are schools better? Do we have a fairer school system? Do parents really have choice?

    Author and journalist Fiona Millar looks at why these policies have proved so seductive to a generation of politicians and seeks to uncover whether we really are are doing 'the best for all our children'. If we are not, what could and should future reform look like? Learn More

Is this system any better than its predecessor in developing the people that we are told society needs in the 21st century?

    Ian Stock, an experienced and practising teacher for more than 30 years, argues that it is worse. We are now turning out many compliant workplace drones instead of the dynamic, high-aiming innovators that a post-industrial society truly needs. Learn More
