Martin Griffin and Jon Mayhew’s Storycraft: How to teach narrative writing is an inspiring and practical resource to support secondary school teachers in developing their students’ creative writing. This book is not a style manual. Authors Martin Griffin and Jon Mayhew think there are plenty of those about. Instead, it picks apart the craft of narrative writing and equips teachers with activities designed to help their students overcome the difficulties they experience when tasked with creating something from nothing. Written by two fiction writers and English teachers with over forty years’ combined experience in education, Storycraft packs in expert guidance relating to idea generation and the nature of story and provides off-the-peg writing prompts that teachers can immediately adopt and adapt in the classroom. The book breaks down the simple components that must be in place for a narrative to work – the crafting of character, setting, shape and structure – and shares fifty-one stimulating activities that will get students writing narratives regularly, more creatively and with greater confidence. Martin and Jon also include helpful advice in a chapter dedicated to the process of editing in which they provide activities designed to help students diagnose and improve misfiring narratives, and they close the book with invaluable tips for GCSE exam preparation written directly for students and with an impending creative writing exam in mind. Suitable for English teachers of students aged eleven to eighteen. Chapters include: Chapter 1 – Manifesto for a Creative Classroom; Chapter 2: FORGE-ing Strategies; Chapter 3 – Crafting Characters; Chapter 4 – Crafting Settings; Chapter 5 – Crafting Shape and Structure; Chapter 6 – Editing; Chapter 7 – The Exam.

"Presents a breakthrough approach that reverses diabetes to a physiology of health and well-being by resetting the genetic expression of a person's DNA through green juice fasting and a 100% organic, nutrient-dense, vegan, low-glycemic, low-insulin-scoring, and high-mineral diet of living foods in the first 21 days"--Provided by publisher.
Written to provide hope, serious results, and life-long success to diabetes sufferers, this significantly updated edition offers insight into anti-aging, holistic health, how to revitalize your diet, and so much more Dr. Gabriel Cousens offers an innovative approach to the prevention and healing of what he calls chronic diabetes degenerative syndrome. A leading medical authority in the world of live-food nutrition, Dr. Cousens exposes the dangers of excess glucose and fructose as the key causes of this seemingly unstoppable epidemic that affects more than 25 million Americans and 347 million people worldwide. Cousens, whose Diabetes Recovery Program is the most successful anti-diabetes program in the world, presents a 3-week plan that focuses on a moderate-low complex carbohydrate, live food, plant-source-only diet that reverses diabetes to a physiology of health and well-being by resetting the genetic expression of a person’s DNA. The program renders insulin and related medicines unnecessary within 4 days as the blood sugar drops to normal levels, and the diabetic shifts into a nondiabetic physiology within 2 weeks. Substantially revised throughout, this practical and encouraging guide reveals the risks of low cholesterol and low omega-3s in one’s diet and includes more than 140 delicious and healthy recipes. The book represents a major breakthrough in understanding the synergy that helps cure diabetes.
Despite our deep interest in mortality, little is known about why some individuals live to middle age and others to extreme old age. Life span, mortality, and aging present some of the most profound mysteries in biology. In Longevity, James Carey draws on unprecedented data to develop a biological and demographic framework for identifying the key factors that govern aging, life span, and mortality in humans and other animals. Carey presents the results of a monumental, twelve-year, National Institute on Aging-funded research project on the determinants of longevity using data from the life tables of five million Mediterranean fruit flies, the most comprehensive set of life table studies ever on the mortality dynamics of a single species. He interprets the fruit fly data within the context of human aging and the aging process in general to identify the determinants of mortality. Three key themes emerge: the absence of species-specific life span limits, the context-specific nature of the mortality rate, and biodemographic linkages between longevity and reproduction. A powerful foundation for the emerging field of biodemography and a rich framework for considering the future of human life span, Longevity will be an indispensable resource for readers from a range of fields including population biology, demography, gerontology, ecology, evolutionary biology, and medical research.
