  • This book provides an important and original way of understanding how journalists use emotion to communicate to readers, posing the deceptively simple question, `how do journalists make us feel something when we read their work?'.  Martin uses case-studies of award-winning magazine-style features to illuminate how some of the best writers of literary journalism give readers the gift of experiencing a range of perspectives and emotions in the telling of a single story. Part One of this book discusses the origins and development of narrative journalism and introduces a new theoretical framework, the Virtue Paradigm, and a new textual analysis tool, the Virtue Map. Part Two includes three case-studies of prize-winning journalism, demonstrating how the Virtue Paradigm and the Virtue Map provide fresh insight into narrative  journalism and the ongoing conversation of what it means to live well together in community.

  • A fresh approach to bridging research design with statistical analysis While good social science requires both research design and statistical analysis, most books treat these two areas separately. Understanding and Applying Research Design introduces an accessible approach to integrating design and statistics, focusing on the processes of posing, testing, and interpreting research questions in the social sciences. The authors analyze real-world data using SPSS software, guiding readers on the overall process of science, focusing on premises, procedures, and designs of social scientific research. Three clearly organized sections move seamlessly from theoretical topics to statistical techniques at the heart of research procedures, and finally, to practical application of research design: Premises of Research introduces the research process and the capabilities of SPSS, with coverage of ethics, Empirical Generalization, and Chi Square and Contingency Table Analysis Procedures of Research explores key quantitative methods in research design including measurement, correlation, regression, and causation Designs of Research outlines various design frameworks, with discussion of survey research, aggregate research, and experiments Throughout the book, SPSS software is used to showcase the discussed techniques, and detailed appendices provide guidance on key statistical procedures and tips for data management. Numerous exercises allow readers to test their comprehension of the presented material, and a related website features additional data sets and SPSS code. Understanding and Applying Research Design is an excellent book for social sciences and education courses on research methods at the upper-undergraduate level. The book is also an insightful reference for professionals who would like to learn how to pose, test, and interpret research questions with confidence.

  • Viele Unternehmer und Manager haben Probleme, neue Ideen zu entwickeln. Oftmals bleiben sie dann doch ihren bisherigen Problemlsungen verhaftet und benutzen dieselben "alten" Tools. Aber wir müssen anders und neu denken und uns von konventionellem Wissen verabschieden. Zum Beispiel von der Ansicht, dass bei einer Entscheidung mit 2 gegensätzlichen Polen nur ein Entweder-Oder oder Kompromiss (der kleinste gemeinsame Nenner, wenn es hart auf hart kommt) die einzigen Mglichkeiten sind. Roger Martin fordert dann integratives Denken, also die Schaffung einer neuen Lsung als Synthese aus den beiden gegensätzlichen Modellen.
    Wie Integrative Thinking in der Praxis umgesetzt werden kann, zeigt er in "Gute Entscheidungen". Das Buch von Roger Martin und Jennifer Riel liefert für jede Führungskraft und jeden Manager, die harte Entscheidungen treffen müssen, eine vierstufige Methode zur integrativen Lsung von komplexen und großen Problemen. Damit und durch die zahlreich enthaltenen Storys und Praxisbeispiele integrativer Denker aus verschiedenen Unternehmen und Branchen ist es DAS Anwendungsbuch für die Kunst des integrativen Denkens.

  • School activities alone are not always sufficient to ensure children's academic progress or socio-emotional development and well-being. And the time when many children typically have the least adult supervision - immediately after school - is also the time that they are at the highest risk to act as perpetrators or become victims of antisocial behavior.

    Throughout A Blueprint for Promoting Academic and Social Competence in After-School Programs, which focuses on children in grades 1 through 6, noted experts identify the best practices of effective programs and pinpoint methods for enhancing school-based skills and making them portable to home and neighborhood settings. This volume:

    Analyzes the concepts central to effective after-school programs.

    Offers developmental, cognitive, and social ecology perspectives on how children learn.

    Features more than 100 exercises that develop young people's capabilities for academic, social, moral, and emotional learning - These exercises are ready to use or can be adapted to students' unique needs.

    Emphasizes young people's development as students and as productive members of society during middle to late childhood and early adolescence.

    Presents explicit theory and evidence that can be used to explain the value of after-school programs for budget proposals.

    This important book will find an appreciative, ready audience among the program directors who design after-school curricula, the educators who implement them, the mental health and social work professionals who help staff them, and the current crop of graduate students who will create the next generation of programs.
