Introductory Chemistry, 2nd Edition
From its very origin, Introductory Chemistry: An Atoms First Approach has been developed and written using an atoms‐first approach specific to introductory chemistry. It is not a pared down version of a general chemistry text, but carefully crafted with the introductory‐chemistry student in mind.The ordering of topics facilitates the conceptual development of chemistry for the novice, rather than the historical development that has been used traditionally. Its language and style are student‐friendly and conversational and the importance and wonder of chemistry in everyday life are emphasised at every opportunity. Continuing in the Burdge tradition, this text employs an outstanding art program, a consistent problem-solving approach, interesting applications woven throughout the chapters and a wide range of end-of-chapter problems.
For courses in public relations. Prepares Students for Public Relations Work with an Emphasis on Ethics and Contemporary, Real-world Applications Featuring an intensely practical approach that favors reasoning, justification, and applications that work, The Practice of Public Relations prepares students for contemporary public relations work in the changing landscape of the 21st century. Fraser Seitel’s writing combines a contemporary, real-life approach that marries his experience in the field with a light-hearted, energetic prose style. This Thirteenth Edition has been thoroughly updated to include recent public relations cases with a continued emphasis on ethics, using examples that span several fields and countries. Building on the successes of the previous edition, this text remains the most visual text on the market, as well as the most comprehensive in its discussion of social media as it relates to public relations.
Leadership in Early Childhood is a practical resource for early childhood practitioners who want to understand how to create successful childcare and early education settings. However, leadership in the early years has moved on in the way it is organised since the third edition and therefore this new fourth edition will be fully revised and updated to reflect the changes affecting leaders in early childhood. This rapid change in the field over the past few years includes moves to professionalise the workforce generally and the introduction of EYPS, so it is important that the new edition recognizes the implications of these developments and that some of the concepts and messages are revisited. The third edition was praised for its good overview of early years leadership; its accessible writing style and clear links between theory and practice which are easy for students to identify with. Proposed changes for the fourth edition include: *Discussion of the leader’s role in moving towards leading/best practice will be included *Essential characteristics of leadership will be revisited in Ch2 in terms of personal qualities, skills and timing related to effective leadership. A newer model will replace older models of professional career development *Decision making in Ch7 will be completely revised and probably renamed something like ‘From Vision to Action’ to discuss developing a vision, the role of values, thinking styles for decision making and application to policy making and problem solving *Team Building in Ch8 will be re-conceptualised to cover working collaboratively as a team at service level, multi disciplinary teams and integrated service provision through multi agency working.
