              Against All Odds: The inside account of the Thai cave rescue and the courageous Australians at the heart of it

              Against All Odds: The inside account of the Thai cave rescue and the courageous Australians at the heart of it (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Challen, Craig; Harris, Richard

              'I just want to warn you. You're going to dive to the end of the cave. You're going to see these kids. They're all looking healthy and happy and smiley. Then, you're going to swim away, and they're probably all going to die.' For seventeen days, the world watched and held its bre...ath as the Wild Boar soccer team were trapped deep in a cave in Thailand. Marooned beyond flooded cave passages after unexpected rains, they were finally rescued, one-by-one, against almost impossible odds, by an international cave-diving team which included Australians Dr Richard Harris and Dr Craig Challen. These two men were chosen for their medical expertise and cave diving knowledge, but this dangerous rescue asked so much more of them. They had to remain calm under extreme pressure and intense scrutiny, adapt to constantly changing circumstances and importantly, build trust among the rescue team and with the young boys and their coach, whose lives were in their hands. Here is the story of these two Australian men who became international heroes - it is a story of determination, cunning and triumph that will long be remembered.

              This book brings together ongoing debates about personalised learning, creativity and ICT in education, with a cross-curricular focus, and establishes a principled framework for cross-curricular teaching and learning in humanities subjects. It explores the distinctiveness of each... individual subject as well as the connections that exist between them to show the natural links that can contribute to pupilsa (TM) understanding of the world in which they live in. Drawing on case studies taken from a range of innovative secondary schools, and interrogating the use of cross-curricular approaches in UK schools, Cross-Curricular Teaching and Learning in Humanities constructs a research based pedagogy with practical steps for students and teachers as they consider how cross-curricular approaches can be implemented in their own subject areas. Key features include: Theoretical examination of key issues Assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of different curricular models Clear principles for effective assessment A wide range of case studies Summaries of key research linked to suggestions for further reading Professional development activities to promote cross-curricular dialogue This timely textbook is essential reading for all students on Initial Teacher Training courses and practising teachers looking to holistically introduce cross-curricular themes and practices in their own subjects.
