FOR THE INQUIRY : poetry (download free from www.nmellor.com)

This well reviewed collection of poetry covers bullying, mortality, human rights, war, relationships, loneliness, the environment and other topics. These issues can generate discussion in a wide variety of subject areas. (Very roughly) similar in feel to Brecht, the poems employ "flinty words" and "raggy rhythms" . Sound recordings are also available on the same website www.nmellor.com You are free to download as many copies of the book and recordings as you wish. Eventually the first handwritten drafts of these works will be made available (particularly if there is a demand - contact via website) to stimulate discussion of the messiness of the creative process. Notes on a Brecht-inspired writing workshop can also be made available on request.

THE SECRETS OF THE DOCTORATE

THE SECRETS OF THE DOCTORATE

Many teachers think they haven’t got time for research. The whole process can be pretty intimidating. This book demystifies the subject . You can download it from the google website listed below. You can also watch a seminar from Newcastle University - under a system callled 'lectopia' - based on the book (the link for the video is on the same website). A PhD thesis is normally heavy going. The thesis which this work derives from is designed to be 'a good read'. Click on the link to my home page on nmellor.com then go to the 'messy method' page.
