Disadvantaged children: health, nutrition & school failure by Herbert George Birch( Book )

20 editions published between 1970 and 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the relationships between poverty, disadvantage, and educational failure in a way considered to be more comprehensive and complex than is possible when such an examination is based solely on a concept of cultural disadvantage and defective experience. The mortality of infants and their mothers around birth, held to be both the most reliable and the most clearly associated indicator of social condition with risk to children, is explored. Conditions in pregnancy and around birth which appear to be associated with hazard to the child (such as the distribution and consequences of low birth weight) are discussed. Certain variables which mediate between social and economic conditions and the lowered effectiveness of mothers as reproducers are examined. Remainder of the book focuses on hazardous events to which children are exposed during their own production to the character and the effect of the environments in which they must live. Evidence linking nutrition, disease, and mental development are considered. Available data on malnutrition, morbidity, and medical care among children of poor families in this country are examined to gain an insight of the degree to<which the quality of their lives puts these children at risk as learners either by impairing their learning capacity or by interfering with their orderly acquisition of knowledge.

Sharing the harvest : a citizen's guide to Community Supported Agriculture by Elizabeth Henderson( )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To an increasing number of American families the CSA (community supported agriculture) is the answer to the globalization of our food supply. The premise is simple: create a partnership between local farmers and nearby consumers, who become members or subscribers in support of the farm. In exchange for paying in advance-at the beginning of the growing season, when the farm needs financing-CSA members receive the freshest, healthiest produce throughout the season and keep money, jobs, and farms in their own community. In this thoroughly revised and expanded edition of a Chelsea Green classic, authors Henderson and Van En provide new insight into making CSA not only a viable economic model, but the right choice for food lovers and farmers alike. Thinking and buying local is quickly moving from a novel idea to a mainstream activity. The groundbreaking first edition helped spark a movement and, with this revised edition, Sharing the Harvest is poised to lead the way toward a revitalized agriculture

Widows' Words : Women Write on the Experience of Grief, the First Year, the Long Haul, and Everything in Between( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Becoming a widow is one of the most traumatic life events that a woman can experience. Yet, as this remarkable new collection reveals, each woman responds to that trauma differently. Here, forty-three widows tell their stories, in their own words. Some were widowed young, while others were married for decades. Some cared for their late partners through long terminal illnesses, while others lost their partners suddenly. Some had male partners, while others had female partners. Yet each of these women faced the same basic dilemma: how to go on living when a part of you is gone. Widows' Words is arranged chronologically, starting with stories of women preparing for their partners' deaths, followed by the experiences of recent widows still reeling from their fresh loss, and culminating in the accounts of women who lost their partners many years ago but still experience waves of grief. Their accounts deal honestly with feelings of pain, sorrow, and despair, and yet there are also powerful expressions of strength, hope, and even joy. Whether you are a widow yourself or have simply experienced loss, you will be sure to find something moving and profound in these diverse tales of mourning, remembrance, and resilience
Growing, older : a chronicle of death, life, and vegetables by Joan Dye Gussow( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gussow's memoir Growing, Older begins when she loses her husband of 40 years to cancer and, two weeks later, finds herself skipping down the street-much to her alarm. Why wasn't she grieving in all the normal ways? With humor and wit, she explains how she stopped worrying about why she was smiling and went on worrying, instead, and as she always has, about the possibility that the world around her was headed off a cliff. But hers is not a tale, or message, of gloom. Rather it is an affirmation of a life's work-and work in general. Lacking a partner's assistance, Gussow continued the hard labor

Joan Dye Gussow is an extraordinarily ordinary woman. She lives in a home not unlike the average home in a neighborhood that is, more or less, typically suburban. What sets her apart from the rest of us is that she thinks more deeply--and in more eloquent detail--about food. In sharing her ponderings, she sets a delightful example for those of us who seek the healthiest, most pleasurable lifestyle within an environment determined to propel us in the opposite direction. Joan is a suburbanite with a green thumb, with a feisty, defiant spirit and a relentlessly positive outlook. At the heart of "

Bodies, Brains and Poverty Poor Children and the Schools by Joan Dye Gussow( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this issue of the IRCD Bulletin is reviewed the status of research relating to health, nutrition, and learning as pertaining to children from economically disadvantaged families. At present there is considered to be little hard evidence in support of the notion that children's present biological condition is correlated with their learning. The question thus remains as to whether it is rational (or humane) to attempt to teach a child who is hungry, ill, or, tired. If not, then health and nutritional programs should be instituted as the one sensible course of action, and not merely because they may be based on scientific research findings. Also included in this issue of the Bulletin is an article on the recommendations for child health care, which has been reprinted from the"Bulletin of Pediatric Research," Volume 4, November 1970, with the permission of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
