Los incómodos

Derechos y realidades de las personas con discapacidad en la Argentina

Elizabeth Aimar

¿Se parecen en algo las vivencias de las personas que conviven con la discapacidad (propia, de familiares, amigos, compañeros de trabajo, pacientes o clientes) de las de quienes no han convivido con ella? ¿Quiénes son los que sienten incomodidad? Sabemos que quienes conviven con la discapacidad tienen una vida más incómoda, sí, pero pocas veces nos detenemos a pensar en la incomodidad que ella genera en los demás.
Este libro aborda los distintos ejes por donde la discapacidad atraviesa nuestras vidas: la salud, el trabajo, la educación, la autodeterminación, la sexualidad, las relaciones sociales y todas las etapas de la vida, desde la infancia hasta la adultez mayor. Se remonta al pasado para preguntarnos cómo llegamos hasta acá y si hemos avanzado. ¿Qué se ha logrado y qué falta aún conseguir?

 

Presence: An Exploration of Profound Change in People, Organizations, and Society 
Peter M. Senge, C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, Betty Sue Flowers

Presence is an intimate look at the development of a new theory about change and learning. In wide-ranging conversations held over a year and a half, organizational learning pioneers Peter Senge, C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and Betty Sue Flowers explored the nature of transformational change and how it arises, and the fresh possibilities it offers a world dangerously out of balance. The book introduces the idea of presence; a concept borrowed from the natural world that the whole is entirely present in any of its parts to the worlds of business, education, government, and leadership. Too often, the authors found, we remain stuck in old patterns of seeing and acting. By encouraging deeper levels of learning, we create an awareness of the larger whole, leading to actions that can help to shape its evolution and our future.

 

Powering Up Children: The Learning Power Approach to Primary Teaching

Guy ClaxtonBecky Carlzon

The Learning Power Approach (LPA) is a pedagogical formula which aims to develop all children as confident and capable learners – ready, willing, and able to choose, design, research, pursue, troubleshoot, and evaluate learning for themselves, alone and with others, in school and out. This approach therefore empowers teachers to complement their delivery of content, knowledge, and skills with the nurturing of positive habits of mind that will better prepare students to flourish in later life.
Bursting with tips and techniques to get students’ learning muscles stretching from a young age, the book is designed for busy primary school teachers who want to get started on the LPA journey – as well as for those who have already made good progress and are looking for fresh ideas.
