Charles Darwin and Victorian visual culture by Jonathan Smith( Book )

Although The Origin of Species contained just a single visual illustration, Charles Darwin's other books were copiously illustrated by well-known artists and engravers. Jonathan Smith explains how Darwin managed to illustrate the unillustratable - his theories of natural selection - by manipulating and modifying the visual conventions of natural history. Moreover, Smith looks outward to analyse the relationships between Darwin's illustrations and Victorian visual culture

Make me normal ( visu )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
"What is it like to not understand the world you live in? What happens when the simplest daily tasks lead to frustration, anxiety and even violence? Make Me Normal is a journey into another world: the autistic world. Autism is a condition of the mind that affects the way you communicate with the world around you. There is no cure for it and for those afflicted, life is a series of challenges and mysteries. Their world is complex and fascinating and made all the more poignant by their desire to live and function in the real world. Four of the most able students at one of Britain's largest special schools for children with autism, the Spa school, show what it is like to struggle with autism. The journey with these four is explosive, revealing, haunting and painful. But they are in a place where they can and do learn strategies to cope with their condition by having it named and explained and are supported by teachers with endless patience."--ABC website

"Every minute of every day, a baby is born in Britain. One Born Every Minute is an 8-part series that celebrates what it is really feels like to become a parent, by taking a bustling maternity hospital and filling it with forty cameras. Filming from the reception desk to the neo-natal ward; from the operating theatre to the birthing pool, this ground-breaking new series observes the dramatic, emotional and often funny moments that go hand in hand with bringing a new life into the world, from the perspective of the soon-to-be parents and family, as well as the hospital staff." -- SBS Website

Giving college credit where it is due : Advanced Placement exam scores and college outcomes by Jonathan Smith( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
We implement a regression discontinuity design using the continuous raw Advanced Placement (AP) exam scores, which are mapped into the observed 1-5 integer scores, for over 4.5 million students. Earning higher AP integer scores positively impacts college completion and subsequent exam taking. Specifically, attaining credit-granting integer scores increases the probability that a student will receive a bachelor's degree within four years by 1 to 2 percentage points per exam. We also find that receiving a score of 3 over a 2 on junior year AP exams causes students to take between 0.06 and 0.14 more AP exams senior year
College access, initial college choice and degree completion by Joshua Goodman( Book )
4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The relatively low degree completion rate of U.S. college students has prompted debate over the extent to which the problem is attributable to the students or to their choice of colleges. Estimating the impact of initial college choice is confounded by the non-random nature of college selection. We solve this selection problem by studying the universe of SAT-takers in the state of Georgia, where minimum SAT scores required for admission to the four-year public college sector generate exogenous variation in initial college choice. Regression discontinuity estimates comparing the relatively low-skilled students just above and below this minimum threshold show that access to this sector increases enrollment in four-year colleges, largely by diverting students from two-year community colleges. Most importantly, access to four-year public colleges substantially increases bachelor's degree completion rates, particularly for low-income students. Conditional on a student's own academic skill, the institutional completion rate of his initial college explains a large fraction of his own probability of completion. Consistent with prior research on college quality and the two-year college penalty, these results may explain part of the labor market return to college quality
Exploring the meaning of responsibility ( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Welcome to this e-book: we are focusing specifically on what is meant by responsibility. The question of responsibility seems high on the agenda at the moment across the globe, whether that be in the political, business, education or environmental arenas. In Volume 2, Number 2, 2011 of JGR, Ryan and Tilbury did an excellent job of probing this much used term by exploring how responsibility is nurtured and connected to business practice, education and sustainability. In this issue we wish to continue this dialogue and dig still deeper into people's understanding of what responsibility actually means
