              The Educators' Guide to Building Whole-school Wellbeing addresses challenges faced by schools wanting to improve wellbeing. While many schools globally now understand the need to promote and protect student wellbeing, they often find themselves stuck - not knowing where to start,... what to prioritise, or how to implement whole-school change. This book fills that gap. This book provides companionships for schools through rich stories from schools around the world who have created wellbeing practices that work for their schools. It guides educators through processes that help create individualised, contextualised, school wellbeing plans. With chapters addressing 'why wellbeing', what is 'whole school', change dynamics, measurement, staff wellbeing, coaching, cultural responsiveness, and how to build buy-in, it is the first of its kind. Balancing research and practice for each topic, with expert practitioner and researcher insights, this book gives schools access to best-practice guidance from around the world, in a user-friendly format, designed for busy schools. What sets the author's apart from the many school wellbeing practitioners globally, is their substantial experience working alongside diverse school groups. While many have experience in one school, few work across a multitude of very different schools and clusters, giving these practising-academics a unique appreciation for effective, cross-context processes.

              Romanticism and Philosophy: Thinking with Literature
               

              Romanticism and Philosophy: Thinking with Literature (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              This volume brings together a wide range of scholars to offer new perspectives on the relationship between Romanticism and philosophy. The entanglement of Romantic literature with philosophy is increasingly recognized, just as Romanticism is increasingly viewed as European and Tr...ansatlantic, yet few studies combine these coordinates and consider the philosophical significance of distinctly literary questions in British and American Romantic writings. The essays in this book are concerned with literary writing as a form of thinking, investigating the many ways in which Romantic literature across the Atlantic engages with European thought, from 18th- and 19th-century philosophy to contemporary theory. The contributors read Romantic texts both as critical responses to the major debates that have shaped the history of philosophy, and as thought experiments in their own right. This volume thus examines anew the poetic philosophy of Wordsworth, Coleridge, Blake, Shelley, and Clare, also extending beyond poetry to consider other literary genres as philosophically significant, such as Jane Austen's novels, De Quincey's autofiction, Edgar Allan Poe's tales, or Emerson's essays. Grounded in complementary theoretical backgrounds and reading practices, the various contributions draw on an impressive array of writers and thinkers and challenge our understanding not only of Romanticism, but also of what we have come to think of as literature and philosophy.

              Boys, Masculinities and Reading explores elementary students' interpretations of their experiences of reading and the contextual influences that impact those experiences. While research continues to highlight the apparent systematic underperformance of boys in comparison to girls... on national and international reading benchmarks, this text moves beyond broad generalizations to consider complexities inherent in notions of masculinity and associated tensions. Applying a socio-cultural perspective, Scholes highlights the voices of boys and girls by focusing on their reading experiences. Examining the perceived, generalized crisis of boys' underperformance in reading and literacy, Scholes identifies the factors that shape perceptions of masculinity among different groups of boys across the globe.

              Indigenous wellbeing is premised on sustainable self-determination that is in turn dependent on a community's evolving model for economic development, its cultural traditions, relationship to its traditional territories and its particular spiritual practices to enable the transmi...ssion of these traditions and practices to future generations. In this context, Indigenous leaders have consistently and repeatedly declared their desire to participate in regional, national and international economic development opportunities, capitalize on the abundance of resources on their traditional lands and that facilitate sustainable environmental, social, cultural and economic value creation activities that benefit their communities. They believe through asserting sovereignty of their lands and resources and acting on their inherent rights of Indigenous peoples will enable them to develop foster sustainable development activities that honour their distinct cultures, values and practices. This book, written by the leading scholars in the field, focuses specifically on examples and models for sustainable enterprise that address key issues related to economic, environmental, social and cultural value creation activities. It includes numerous examples of Indigenous communities which have successfully used entrepreneurship in the pursuit of sustainable development and wellbeing. Each chapter features practical examples and case studies that illustrate the key findings.

              Biomimetics is the idea of creating new technologies abstracted from what we find in biology. Ocean Innovation: Biomimetics Beneath the Waves seeks that technological inspiration from the rich biodiversity of marine organisms. Bringing both a biological and engineering perspectiv...e to the biomimetic potential of oceanic organisms, this richly illustrated book investigates questions such as: How can we mimic the sensory systems of sea creatures like sharks, sea turtles, and lobsters to improve our ability to navigate underwater? What can we do to afford humans the opportunity to go unnoticed by marine life? How can we diffuse oxygen from water to enable deep diving without the risk of decompression sickness? Each chapter explores an area where we, as divers and technologists, can benefit from understanding how animals survive in the sea, presenting case studies that demonstrate how natural solutions can be applied to mankind's engineering challenges.
