"Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" : adventures of a curious character by Richard P Feynman( Book )

71 editions published between 1984 and 2018 in English and Dutch and held by 3,548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1965, Richard Feynman was one of the world's greatest theoretical physicists, but he was also a man who fell, often jumped, into adventure. An artist, safecracker, practical joker and storyteller, Feynman's life was a series of combustible combinations made possible by his unique mixture of high intelligence, unquenchable curiosity and eternal skepticism. Over a period of years, Feynman's conversations with his friend Ralph Leighton were first taped and then set down as they appear here, little changed from their spoken form, giving a wise, funny, passionate and totally honest self-portrait of one of the greatest men of our age

Teaching citizenship education : a radical approach by Ralph Leighton( Book )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Citizenship education was introduced into the curriculum as the subject to bring about a change in the political culture of a nation. However, without taking a radical approach to the teaching of this subject, its core values are likely to be lost. Teaching Citizenship Education introduces the central themes of the citizenship curriculum and evaluates the success of a number of delivery methods currently being used throughout the UK. Ralph Leighton adopts some of the insights and arguments provided by advocates of the radical and democratic approach to education to demonstrate that citizenship education can become a liberating and empowering force for change. He encourages readers to think about the nature of the subject and the experiences they are providing for their students, and provides a framework for how to go about creating something which really is more than just a subject. A companion website supports the text to ensure that the material remains up-to-date with current thinking and teaching strategies. A 'must-have' for all those looking to teach citizenship education with confidence and imagination
