1.5.3 Looking forward: implications and possible consequences

But what are the implications of these developments and trends? Clearly the emergence of a strong east-Asian bond market could threaten both the US dollar and the Euro markets, but this development is still in its infancy, and there are significant political and economic differences of interest amongst the possible east-Asian participants in such a market.

2.4 ‘Go Use’ science promotion events
This unit will look at how public engagement in science and technology might be achieved through science promotion. Science promotion and public involvement in policy making can require both formal and informal objectives: some are explicit and some are implicit, some are articulated at the planning stage and some are unexpected. These objectives can entail participation, engagement, knowledge exchange and learning – all of which require a degree of motivation by all parties.

Labelling
Labelling I am completing a research project on the effect of labelling children and what this does to their self esteem and attainment. It is based around the primary aged child but not a specific key stage. Any information you could give me would be great. I have looked at a few journals on the effect of informal and formal labelling.

Literacy Primary I am looking for information concerning the holistic teaching of key stage two primary English, maybe with an emphasis on the use of whole texts as opposed to extracts. Also any seminal articles on the research that has fed into the new Primary Literacy Strategy.
