In this sequel to the highly respected and practical 1993 book on fund raising, Worth and his group of authoritative contributors cover areas that did not even exist in this field in 1993, including the concepts of "principal gifts" and "benchmarking." They adapt strategies from Worth's earlier book and introduce many new ones to meet current challenges and take advantage of new opportunities. Comprising 31 chapters divided into ten logical parts, the authors provide a complete picture of this field, which is so important to leaders in higher education. Beginning with a strong base of knowledge, the authors then discuss topics ranging from raising funds from individuals; creating the campaign (accounting, long-range planning, leadership, the mission, kickoff); corporate and foundation support; traditions of giving; managing and supporting development programs; ethical concerns; and trends for the future. Michael Worth gives a great deal of attention to the environment in which those responsible for advancement in higher education have to work today. The book addresses new areas in the field that didn't exist when Worth wrote his first edition of this book in 1993. For example, the use of financial instruments in the planning of gift giving are more sophisticated, and business techniques have been tapped to improve management of programs and measurement of success. Part II of the book describes the underlying foundations of educational fund raising in three chapters, each written by an expert contributor. This section of the book describes the base of knowledge in the field (theory and research) and discusses the institutional plan and its relationship to the goals and objectives of the institution. Part V, covers corporate and foundation support, which is based on reasoned strategies and business plans and goals rather than on altruism and emotion, which can often be the foundation for individual giving. The book also includes a glossary and a selective bibliography.

An integrated series of cases, all dealing with characters and situations within the school district, it offers a realistic picture of what teaching is really about. Case activities increase readers' awareness of the professional aspects of teaching, and provide opportunities for teacher reflection and decision making and for dealing with the consequences of teacher actions. Chapters 2-15 include "Questions for Reflection and Discussion," "Class and Individual Projects," and "Questions Based on Activities." Most chapters conclude with "Additional Teaching and Learning Skills" and "Suggestions For Further Reading."

Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) and relationships, (sex) and health education (R(S)HE) are often undervalued in school and are frequently seen as an add-ons. But when taught well, PSHE and R(S)HE can enhance not only other subjects but strengthen school safeguarding, develop pupil well-being and improve pupils' progress and resilience in learning. Underpinned by a range of contemporary research and illustrated through examples of classroom practice, the expert team of teacher educators look at a range of curriculum areas and contemporary issues to explore how PSHE and R(S)HE education can enhance other curriculum areas. As well as showing how pupils' life skills can be developed, they also explore how teachers' understanding of how PSHE and R(S)HE can be implemented without additional planning or expensive resources. The book takes an inclusive understanding of both diverse families and relationships throughout. Topics covered include: -social media, online presence and critical literacy skills -mental health coping strategies -plastic reducing -topical, sensitive, controversial issues (TSCIs) Covering the whole primary spectrum from Early Years to Key Stage 2, case studies from each phase are included within each chapter to help practitioners to relate the material to their own classroom. Points to consider for your setting are included and guidance on further reading provides reliable direction for additional information.

The establishment of alternative education, private foundations, and networks linked to socio-political and spiritual advocacies distinguishes the Thai social movement in this research. This research is a qualitative study that has made use of historical accounts to associate with data gathered from extensive interviews and case studies in order to inquire as to whether alternative education represents an historical spiritual tradition of opposition to reform hegemony, and whether it has had an impact on state reform efforts. Also investigated was whether there are some historical patterns associated with the manner in which the state of Thailand has dealt with the forces of globalization and whether the collective action by informal movements of Thai people also has the same predictable pattern of response to the global. Analysis and comparison of these issues contribute in determining the values associated with people in the alternative education movement and the motives and intentions associated with state-initiated reforms. A further related aspect explored is the degree of "Thai-ness" and the embedded historical pattern of both the alternative education movement and education reform. These inquiries were answered through the collection of data from three different trips to Thailand over a four-year period, the last trip a one-year stay that permitted case studies and observations at three alternative schools, and the interview of a host of participants from home-school parents and students to Ministry of Education staff and officers. In examining the data, a clearer notion of what lies underneath the idea of Buddhist education and spirituality became clearer and how educational reform based on Western ideals and notions has not taken into account Buddhism and culture as education. This illumination brings new insight and also raises a new question as to the difference between social movements in a Buddhist nation such as Thailand and social movements in the West.

This book illuminates the philanthropic impulse that has influenced women's education and its place in the broader history of philanthropy in America. Contributing to the history of women, education, and philanthropy, the book shows how voluntary activity and home-grown educational enterprise were as important as big donors in the development of philanthropy. The essays in Women and Philanthropy in Education are generally concerned with local rather than national effects of philanthropy, and the giving of time rather than monetary support. Many of the essays focus on the individual lives of female philanthropists (Olivia Sage, Martha Berry) and teachers (Tsuda Umeko, Catharine Beecher), offering personal portraits of philanthropy in the 19th and 20th centuries. These stories provide evidence of the key role played by women in the development of philanthropy and its importance to the education of women. Philanthropic and Nonprofit Studies -- Dwight F.
