There are few comprehensive textbooks available to special educators responsible for developing, implementing, and monitoring resource room programs. McNamara’s book fills this void by providing teachers and administrators with helpful, practical information and by exploring the role of the resource room teacher as it relates to three major functions: assessment, instruction, and consultation. The information provided should also assist administrators and supervisors to evaluate their own existing resource room programs.

First published two decades ago, the first edition of Handbook of Control Room Design and Ergonomics: A Perspective for the Future became a benchmark for the field. Current-day process control encompasses a new generation of computer systems with enormous capabilities, including new display technologies. These new and emerging technologies integrated with human factors create an interconnectivity that enhances organizational development. This new edition of the handbook addresses developments in the concept of "Control Rooms". It includes modern approaches that emphasize the role of people in learning for self-development and in shaping their work environments.

Using original case studies, the authors describe and illustrate some creative and exciting organizational designs of the future, including new perspectives learning, learning in the workplace, and lifelong learning.

From a New York Times–bestselling and National Book Critics Award–winning author comes a “small masterpiece” of fatherhood, childhood, and bottle-feeding (Publishers Weekly). In a novel Entertainment Weekly called “intensely funny and moving,” Nicholson Baker takes the reader on an intellectual odyssey over the course of the twenty minutes it takes a new father to give his baby daughter her bottle. Through inspired moments of mental flight, Mike’s thoughts on his newfound parenthood lead him back to his own childhood and to reflections on the objects of his youth. From glass peanut butter jars to French horns, from typography to courtship, Baker reveals “some of the tenderest, most delicate interaction between husband and wife, adult and infant, in modern fiction” (Los Angeles Times). “Sparkling . . . frequently hilarious . . . This is a big novel unfolding . . . so subtly that one is scarcely aware of its magnitude until the last page.” —The Boston Globe “A delightful book . . . Every page provokes the shock, or at least the smile, of recognition.” —The Washington Post “A major cosmic drama . . . It is a delightful book . . . a real charmer, a breath of fresh air, a show-stopping coloratura aria made of the quirks of memory and the quiddities of daily life.” —The Sacramento Union “[A] small masterpiece by an extraordinarily gifted . . . writer.” —Publishers Weekly

There have been countless crime dramas written about murder mysteries, but none written by two actual Police Chiefs. Co-Written by retired NYPD Deputy Chief John Cutter and retired City of Stamford Chief of Police Bob Nivakoff, The Squad Room touches on the real-life experiences of Chief Cutter and Chief Nivakoff, through the lens of fiction. The Squad Room tells the tale of NYPD Captain William "Bill" Morrison's hunt to track down a ferocious serial killer and sexual predator that is terrorizing New York City. Morrison is a world-class investigator, a "Cop's Cop," with the respect of his peers, but his personal life is in disarray. His son, also a NYPD Officer, is dead, gunned down in the line of duty, leaving Bill a haunted shell of a man. His second marriage is in shambles as his only true loves are his children and "the job." Morose, Morrison finds solace in an extra-marital affair, alcohol and the members of his Detective Squad, the men and women in blue that constitute his second family. You may believe you know what evil looks like, but The Squad Room shows you that the face of unspeakable horror can come in many forms. Morrison and his team are racing against time to identify and bring the murderer to justice. Meanwhile, his Detective Squad runs up against villains inside the system: a Chief and a Detective who got where they are by political maneuvering, rather than skill and merit. Cutter and Nivakoff don't hold back--The Squad Room gives you a genuine insider's view into the NYPD and the triumphs and tribulations that Police officers experience on a regular basis and the toll that policing takes on the mental and physical health of police officers and their families.

Thrilling, true tales from the Vidocq Society, a team of the world's finest forensic investigators whose monthly gourmet lunches lead to justice in ice-cold murders Three of the greatest detectives in the world--a renowned FBI agent turned private eye, a sculptor and lothario who speaks to the dead, and an eccentric profiler known as "the living Sherlock Holmes"-were heartsick over the growing tide of unsolved murders. Good friends and sometime rivals William Fleisher, Frank Bender, and Richard Walter decided one day over lunch that something had to be done, and pledged themselves to a grand quest for justice. The three men invited the greatest collection of forensic investigators ever assembled, drawn from five continents, to the Downtown Club in Philadelphia to begin an audacious quest: to bring the coldest killers in the world to an accounting. Named for the first modern detective, the Parisian eugène François Vidocq-the flamboyant Napoleonic real-life sleuth who inspired Sherlock Holmes-the Vidocq Society meets monthly in its secretive chambers to solve a cold murder over a gourmet lunch. The Murder Room draws the reader into a chilling, darkly humorous, awe-inspiring world as the three partners travel far from their Victorian dining room to hunt the ruthless killers of a millionaire's son, a serial killer who carves off faces, and a child killer enjoying fifty years of freedom and dark fantasy. Acclaimed bestselling author Michael Capuzzo's brilliant storytelling brings true crime to life more realistically and vividly than it has ever been portrayed before. It is a world of dazzlingly bright forensic science; true evil as old as the Bible and dark as the pages of Dostoevsky; and a group of flawed, passionate men and women, inspired by their own wounded hearts to make a stand for truth, goodness, and justice in a world gone mad.

Using fathers' first-hand accounts from letters, journals, and personal interviews along with hospital records and medical literature, Judith Walzer Leavitt offers a new perspective on the changing role of expectant fathers from the 1940s to the 1980s. She shows how, as men moved first from the hospital waiting room to the labor room in the 1960s, and then on to the delivery and birthing rooms in the 1970s and 1980s, they became progressively more involved in the birth experience and their influence over events expanded. With careful attention to power and privilege, Leavitt charts not only the increasing involvement of fathers, but also medical inequalities, the impact of race and class, and the evolution of hospital policies. Illustrated with more than seventy images from TV, films, and magazines, this book provides important new insights into childbirth in modern America, even as it reminds readers of their own experiences.
