The Use of Science and Technology in Service to Children in Courts
Michael Edmond Donnelly
0820413852
Aug 2006
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Scientific evidence plays a growing role in many court cases concerning the abuse and deaths of children. This book explores the early history of scientific evidence in America and then examines the nature and value of collaborations between scientists and lawyers on behalf of children. Looking closely at several of these collaborations, including forensic dentistry and x-ray technology, this book outlines patterns of successful joint efforts to prove or disprove abuse cases in courts and outlines a direction for scientists and lawyers to jointly transform courts' handling of children's matters, and move them in a more humane and ethical direction.

Book Review
Fields of white opium poppies stretch away over the hills, and uniformed workers bend over the rows, harvesting the juice. This is the empire of Matteo Alacran, a feudal drug lord in the country of Opium, which lies between the United States and Aztlan, formerly Mexico. Field work, or any menial tasks, are done by "eejits," humans in whose brains computer chips have been installed to insure docility. Alacran, or El Patron, has lived 140 years with the help of transplants from a series of clones, a common practice among rich men in this world. The intelligence of clones is usually destroyed at birth, but Matt, the latest of Alacran's doubles, has been spared because he belongs to El Patron. He grows up in the family's mansion, alternately caged and despised as an animal and pampered and educated as El Patron's...

Book Description
This first edition gives educators a detailed view of how children ages three to six learn, based on theories of Piaget, Vygotsky and social constructivist learning. It examines how children respond in the steps of inquiry and how educators can develop skills to foster children?s active exploration in each step. Through an array of exploratory curriculum styles in math and science, including Inquiry Topics, students will develop strong skills in selecting, framing, and expanding curriculum for the preschool and kindergarten children teach. Educators also will become familiar with introducing an array of technology to enhance inquiry in the classroom.

From School Library Journal
Grade 2-5–In Math Curse (Viking, 1995), a teacher's chance comment causes a girl to see every aspect of her life as a math problem. This time around, the fun starts when a boy hears this remark: "…if you listen closely enough, you can hear the poetry of science in everything." What follows is a series of poems that parody the styles of Joyce Kilmer, Edgar Allan Poe, Lewis Carroll, Robert Frost, and many others, as well as familiar songs and nursery rhymes. "Once in first grade I was napping/When I heard a scary yapping" begins a lament about studying dinosaurs year after year. In "Astronaut Stopping by a Planet on a Snowy Evening," the narrator bemoans the fact that he can't figure out what planet he's on because "In science class I was asleep…." Children need not be familiar with the...
