No topic sparks an argument faster among the American public, even with relatively apolitical people, than how their children are taught. In schools across the country, school boards, parents, teachers, and students themselves debate issues ranging from charter schools, to the first amendment rights of students, to the efficacy of the No Child Left Behind Act. School districts in Georgia and Pennsylvania have seen battles over the teaching of evolution; places as diverse as Colorado, Washington, and Kentucky have had debates over how best to protect children while at school. Battleground: Schools provides an in-depth, balanced overview of these controversial topics and enables teachers, students, and their parents to better understand the foundations of these conflicts.

Krakau, 1939. Anna ist noch ein Kind, als die Deutschen ihren Vater mitnehmen, einen jüdischen Intellektuellen. Sie versteht nicht, warum. Sie versteht nur, dass sie allein zurückbleibt. Und dann trifft Anna den Schwalbenmann. Geheimnisvoll ist er, charismatisch und klug, und ebenso wie ihr Vater kann er faszinierend viele Sprachen sprechen. Er kann Vogellaute imitieren und eine Schwalbe für sie anlocken. Und er kann überleben – in einer Welt, in der plötzlich alles voller tödlicher Feindseligkeit zu sein scheint. Anna schließt sich dem Schwalbenmann an, lernt von ihm, wie man jenseits der Städte wandert, sich im Wald ernährt und verbirgt. Wie man dem Tod entkommt, um das Leben zu bewahren. Aber in einer Welt, die am Abgrund steht, kann alles gefährlich werden. Auch der Schwalbenmann.

Doing Health in der Gemeinschaft

Brustkrebsgene zwischen gesellschaftlicher, familiärer und individueller Gesundheitsnorm

Author: Britta Pelters

Publisher: transcript Verlag

ISBN: 3839422256

Category: Social Science

Page: 392

View: 1304

Gesundheit als soziales Produkt: Moderne prädiktive Brustkrebsgentests liefern heute gesundheitsrelevantes Wissen mit eindeutiger Familienanbindung. Britta Pelters zeichnet erstmalig nach, wie Gesundheit im Unbestimmten des Risikodiskurses sowohl familial sozialisiert als auch individuell normiert wird. Ausgehend von dieser Praxis des »doing health« entwickelt sie einen konstruktivistischen, subjektiv-relationalen Gesundheitsbegriff, der der healthistisch fetischisierten Debatte um Gesundheit gerecht wird. Gleichzeitig wird mit dem Konzept der Individualnorm ein praktischer Bezugspunkt für die Arbeit im Feld der Gesundheitsförderung und Prävention angeboten.
