"Enlivening Secondary History is the ideal handbook for busy history teachers who want to do something different in their classrooms but have little time to plan and organise their lessons. With 40 activities based on four themes (Visual, Numerical Data, Abstract Ideas and Primary Texts), this book offers tried-and-tested practical ideas complete with relevant exemplars and step-by-step advice." "Each activity includes links to key topics at Key Stages 3 and 4 and at A/AS Level, including the Crusades, the Reformation and the First and Second World Wars, Revolutionary Russia, and many more. All the ideas are explained in a clear, user-friendly style, with a breakdown of the time and resources needed for each one." "Enlivening Secondary History is written by practitioners for practitioners, and allows teachers to bring history alive in an imaginative and innovative way. It will be a useful guide for both experienced and student teachers."--Résumé de l'éditeur

"The Chosen One" tells of a dramastic moment of crisis in the relationship between an inarticulate young workman and the rich, ageing and possessive harridan who lives at the big house and owns his cottage. Of the other stories, two are tender and perceptive descriptions of old age, one the account of a small girls infatuation with her aunt's lover, another a subtle study of a character and relationships in a curious menage a trois, and two are tales of the revenge a lover takes on the one who miuses him

The withered root by Rhys Davies( Book )

10 editions published between 1927 and 2007 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Withered Root' recounts the troubled life of Reuben Daniels, reared in a South Wales industrial valley, in the bosom of the Nonconformist culture. Therein lies his downfall and that of his people, for 'The Withered Root' is as thoroughly opposed to Welsh Nonconformity as 'My People' (Caradoc Evans), though for different reasons. Revivalist passions constitute nothing but a perverse outlet for an all too human sexuality which chapel culture has otherwise repressed. Nonconformity has withered the root of natural sexual well-being in the Welsh, and then feeds off the twisted fruits

Across the great divide : modernism's intermedialities, from futurism to fluxus by Chris Townsend( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's nothing pure about modernism. For all the later critical emphasis upon 'medium specificity', modernist artists in their own times revel in the exchange of motifs and tropes from one kind of art to another; they revel in staging events where different media play crucial roles alongside each other, where different media interfere with each other, to spark new and surprising experiences for their audiences. This intermediality and multi-media activity is the subject of this important col
