Il linguaggio segreto dei bambini

Summary

C'è un'età nella vita di ogni bimbo, e di ogni genitore, nella quale ogni giorno è una scoperta, una sfida, spesso una lotta.  Da quando imparano a camminare a quando iniziano a frequentare la scuola materna, i piccoli non desiderano altro che acquisire indipendenza, sperimentare le proprie capacità, mettere alla prova la pazienza di chi li accudisce e la solidità delle regole.  Spesso in questo periodo i genitori vanno in crisi. Ma gestire i bambini da uno a tre anni è tutt'altro che una missione impossibile: Tracy Hogg, celebre per il suo metodo di puericultura destinato ai neonati, lo insegna in questo libro, che guida tutti i genitori verso la conoscenza del proprio figlio e il riconoscimento della sua unicità; e spiega come gestire i momenti più delicati, come instaurare una sana routine, come aiutare i piccoli nelle nuove esaltanti esperienze che li aspettano di giorno in giorno.

The Distance Learning Playbook for School Leaders

Summary

Effective school leadership is effective leadership, regardless of where it occurs. In March 2020, there was no manual for leading schools and school systems during a pandemic. School leaders had to figure things out as the crisis unfolded. But starting now, leaders have the opportunity to prepare for leading schools through distance learning with purpose and intent - using what works best to accelerate students’ learning all the while maintaining an indelible focus on equity. Harnessing the insights and experience of renowned educators Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and John Hattie, The Distance Learning Playbook for School Leaders applies the wisdom and evidence of the VISIBLE LEARNING® research to understand what works best. Spanning topics from school climate at a distance, leader credibility, care for self and colleagues, instructional leadership teams, stakeholder advisory groups, and virtual visibility, this comprehensive playbook details the research- and evidence-based strategies school leaders can mobilize to lead the delivery of high-impact learning in an online, virtual, and distributed environment. This powerful guide includes: Actionable insights and hands-on steps for each module to help school leaders realize the evidence-based leadership practices that result in meaningful learning in a distance environment Discussion of equity challenges associated with distance learning, along with examples of how leaders can work to ensure that equity gains that have been realized are not lost Analysis of the mindsets that empower leaders to manage change, rather than technology Space to write and reflect on current practices and plan future leadership strategies The mindframes for distance learning that serve leaders well in any instructional setting and will position schools after the pandemic to come back better than they were before

Education for Critical Consciousness

Summary

Famous for his advocacy of "critical pedagogy", Paulo Freire was Latin America's foremost educationalist, a thinker and writer whose work and ideas continue to exert enormous influence in education throughout the world today. Education for Critical Consciousness is the main statement of Freire's revolutionary method of education. It takes the life situation of the learner as its starting point and the raising of consciousness and the overcoming of obstacles as its goals. For Freire, man's striving for his own humanity requires the changing of structures that dehumanize both the oppressor and the oppressed.

We Got This: Equity, Access, and the Quest to Be Who Our Students Need Us to Be

Summary

"That's the problem with you, Minor" a student huffed. "You want to make everything about reading or math. It's not always about that. At school, you guys do everything except listen to me. Y'all want to use your essays and vocabulary words to save my future, but none of y'all know anything about saving my now." In We Got This, Cornelius Minor describes how this conversation moved him toward realizing that listening to children is one of the most powerful things a teacher can do. By listening carefully, Cornelius discovered something that kids find themselves having to communicate far too often. That "my lessons were not, at all, linked to that student's reality." While challenging the teacher as hero trope, We Got This shows how authentically listening to kids is the closest thing to a superpower that we have. What we hear can spark action that allows us to make powerful moves toward equity by broadening access to learning for all children. A lone teacher can't eliminate inequity, but Cornelius demonstrates that a lone teacher can confront the scholastic manifestations of racism, sexism, ableism, and classism by showing: Exactly how he plans and revises lessons to ensure access and equity Ways to look anew at explicit and tacit rules that consistently affect groups of students unequally Suggestions for leaning into classroom community when it feels like the kids are against you Ideas for using universal designs that make curriculum relevant and accessible Advocacy strategies for making classroom and school-wide changes that expand access to opportunity to your students "We cannot guarantee outcomes, but we can guarantee access" Cornelius writes. "We can ensure that everyone gets a shot. In this book we get to do that. Together. Consider this book a manual for how to begin that brilliantly messy work. We got this."

Teaching in the Online Classroom

Summary

A timely guide to online teaching strategies from best-selling author Doug Lemov and the Teach like a Champion team School closures in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic resulted in an immediate and universal pivot to online teaching. More than 3.7 million teachers in the US were suddenly asked to teach in an entirely new setting with little preparation and no advance notice. This has caused an unprecedented threat to children's education, giving rise to an urgent need for resources and guidance.  The New Normal is a just-in-time response to educators' call for help. Teaching expert Doug Lemov and his colleagues spent weeks studying videos of online teaching and they now provide educators in the midst of this transition with a clear guide to engaging and educating their students online.  Although the transition to online education is happening more abruptly than anyone anticipated, technology-supported teaching may be here to stay. This guide explores the challenges involved in online teaching and guides educators and administrators to identify and understand best practices. It is a valuable tool to help you and your students succeed in synchronous and asynchronous settings this school year and beyond.

The Montessori Method

Summary

Italian doctor and educator Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was the first woman to graduate from the University of Rome Medical School. This masterpiece of educational philosophy is still relevant today, as the author explains to parents and teachers how to free a child through its own efforts. First published in English in 1912, these tried and trusted methods have proved their worth for more than a hundred years. Emphasizing the individuality of the child in order to nurture the joy of learning, Montessori avoids rote memorization and drilling, encouraging abstract thinking with the aim of fulfilling a child's emotional, physical, and intellectual potential.

Summary

Implement a more constructive approach to difficult students  Lost and Found is a follow-up to Dr. Ross Greene's landmark works, The Explosive Child and Lost at School, providing educators with highly practical, explicit guidance on implementing his Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) Problem Solving model with behaviorally-challenging students. While the first two books described Dr. Greene's positive, constructive approach and described implementation on a macro level, this useful guide provides the details of hands-on CPS implementation by those who interact with these children every day. Listeners will learn how to incorporate students' input in understanding the factors making it difficult for them to meet expectations and in generating mutually satisfactory solutions. Specific strategies, sample dialogues, and time-tested advice help educators implement these techniques immediately.  The groundbreaking CPS approach has been a revelation for parents and educators of behaviorally-challenging children. This book gives educators the concrete guidance they need to immediately begin working more effectively with these students.

If we hope to interrupt educational inequities and create schools in which every child thrives, we must open our hearts to purposeful conversation and hone our skills to make those conversations effective.

Coaching for Equity is packed with the resources necessary to implement transformational coaching in any organization. In addition to an updated coaching framework and corresponding rubrics, a comprehensive set of coaching tools puts success in every coach's hands.

Rhetoric and Poetics

4 ratings

Summary

Poetics and Rhetoric are the two major works by Aristotle which, after more than 2,000 years, remain key behavioural handbooks for anyone interested in story, performance, presentation and indeed psychology. The continuing influence of Poetics, for example, is readily discernible even among the scriptwriters of Hollywood! Poetics is the shorter work, lasting under two hours, whereas Rhetoric - the art of persuasion, an important subject, particularly in Greek and Roman times but even today - is more extensive, running to nearly nine hours. In Poetics, Aristotle discusses the structure behind drama, comedy, tragedy and the satire plays as well as lyric poetry, epic poetry and music. The structure of a work, the plot, the characters as well as pace and rhythm are all considered. To listen to Poetics is a revelation, like going back to the source of literary theory. Aristotle developed his view on rhetoric over a period of 40 years, and the work is now regarded as the key source on the subject. In a largely oral world, the ability to speak well and persuade by presentation was crucial to success in human affairs. All the major figures of the period studied the best ways to deliver the spoken word - a necessary skill for orators at all levels. For Aristotle, there were three major elements: ethos (the personal character of the speaker), pathos (the emotional influence of the speaker on the audience) and logos (the content and the argument). Rhetoric consists of three books, dividing the topic into the overview, the means of persuasion and the style. A fascinating document, it remains required study in the 21st century, not only for public speakers but those involved in all circumstances where persuasion is involved. With ethos - the character of the speaker - underpinning the subject, the positive nature of art of persuasion should be paramount! Poetics is translated by S. H. Butcher. Rhetoric is translated by W. Rhys Roberts. Both are read clearly by James Cameron Stewart.

Summary

The art and craft of writing by one of the few grandmasters of American literature, a bonanza for writers and listeners written by Kurt Vonnegut's former student.   Here is an entirely new side of Kurt Vonnegut, Vonnegut as a teacher of writing. Of course he's given us glimpses before, with aphorisms and short essays and articles and in his speeches. But never before has an entire book been devoted to Kurt Vonnegut the teacher. Here is pretty much everything Vonnegut ever said or wrote having to do with the writing art and craft, altogether a healing, a nourishing expedition. McConnell has outfitted us for the journey, and in these 37 chapters covers the waterfront of how one American writer brought himself to the pinnacle of the writing art, and we can all benefit as a result.   Kurt Vonnegut was one of the few grandmasters of American literature, whose novels continue to influence new generations about the ways in which our imaginations can help us to live. Few aspects of his contribution have not been plumbed - 14 novels, collections of his speeches, his essays, his letters, his plays - so this fresh view of him, written by a former student, is a bonanza for writers and listeners and Vonnegut fans everywhere.

Paula Polk Lillard writes both as a trained educator and as a concerned parent - she has many years as a public school teacher, but it was her enthusiasm for the education her own child experienced in a Montessori school that led her to become a leading voice in the Montessori movement in this country. Her book offers the clearest and most concise statement of the Montessori method of child development and education available today.

The Years That Matter Most

Summary

The best-selling author of How Children Succeed returns with a powerful, mind-changing inquiry into higher education in the United States. Read by the author. Does college still work? Is the system designed just to protect the privileged and leave everyone else behind? Or can a college education today provide real opportunity to young Americans seeking to improve their station in life? The Years That Matter Most tells the stories of students trying to find their way, with hope, joy, and frustration, through the application process and into college. Drawing on new research, the book reveals how the landscape of higher education has shifted in recent decades and exposes the hidden truths of how the system works and whom it works for. And it introduces us to the people who really make higher education go: admissions directors trying to balance the class and balance the budget, College Board officials scrambling to defend the SAT in the face of mounting evidence that it favors the wealthy, researchers working to unlock the mysteries of the college-student brain, and educators trying to transform potential dropouts into successful graduates. With insight, humor, and passion, Paul Tough takes listeners on a journey from Ivy League seminar rooms to community college welding shops, from giant public flagship universities to tiny experimental storefront colleges. Whether you are facing your own decision about college or simply care about the American promise of social mobility, The Years That Matter Most will change the way you think - not just about higher education, but about the nation itself.

How to Write a Thesis

3 ratings

Summary

By the time Umberto Eco published his best-selling novel The Name of the Rose, he was one of Italy's most celebrated intellectuals, a distinguished academic and the author of influential works on semiotics. Some years before that, in 1977, Eco published a little book for his students, How to Write a Thesis, in which he offered useful advice on all the steps involved in researching and writing a thesis - from choosing a topic to organizing a work schedule to writing the final draft. Now in its 23rd edition in Italy and translated into 17 languages, How to Write a Thesis has become a classic. Remarkably, this is its first, long overdue publication in English. Eco's approach is anything but dry and academic. He not only offers practical advice, but also considers larger questions about the value of the thesis-writing exercise. How to Write a Thesis is unlike any other writing manual. It sounds like a novel. It is opinionated. It is frequently irreverent, sometimes polemical, and often hilarious. Eco advises students how to avoid "thesis neurosis", and he answers the important question "Must You Read Books?" He reminds students "You are not Proust" and "Write everything that comes into your head, but only in the first draft". Of course, there was no Internet in 1977, but Eco's index card research system offers important lessons about critical thinking and information curating for students of today who may be burdened by Big Data.

A Macat Analysis of Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason

Summary

More than two centuries after its initial publication in 1781, Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason remains perhaps the most influential text in modern philosophy. Kant himself claimed his work as a revolutionary document and insisted that it changed the discipline of philosophy as thoroughly as Copernicus had changed astronomy 300 years earlier, when he said the Earth revolved around the sun and not the other way round. Kant argues that metaphysicians (philosophers who are primarily concerned with the fundamental causes and nature of things) could move away from their endless battles about whether human knowledge must conform to independently given objects. Instead he argues that progress in philosophy is possible only by agreeing that objects conform to forms of human cognition, or awareness. Much of the history of philosophy can be recounted in terms of how thinkers have reacted to Kant's work. His critique continues to provoke and inform a range of contemporary debates, both within and beyond philosophy.

Summary

The answer to creating innovative teaching and learning opportunities lies within you. Every educator faces constraints — from budget restrictions to predetermined curriculum to “one-size-fits-all” mandatory assessments. The question is, how can you, as a teacher or administrator, ensure that regulations and limitations don’t impede authentic learning? In Innovate Inside the Box, George Couros and Katie Novak provide informed insight on creating purposeful learning opportunities for all students. By combining the power of the innovator's mindset and Universal Design for Learning (UDL), they empower educators to create opportunities that will benefit every learner. Couros and Novak show you how to.... Leverage the core of innovative teaching and learning with a focus on developing meaningful relationships. Develop the eight characteristics of the innovator’s mindset in your students—and yourself. Use UDL to proactively design learning experiences that foster voice and choice while addressing barriers that impede learning. Create learner-driven, evidence-informed learning experiences that provide all students with options and choices to maximize success. “If you’re looking to bring creativity to student learning amid all the constraints educators face, this is the book for you.” (Daniel Pink, author of Drive) “No one articulates a more compelling, a more urgent, or a more motivating vision of education — for both teachers and their students — than George Couros. No one articulates how that vision can be reached — for every student and teacher — more daringly, more practically, and more inclusively, than Katie Novak. Having them together in one book not only helps us reimagine the goals and practices of education, it reminds us of why we ever wanted to be teachers at all.” (David Rose, PhD, CAST's cofounder and chief education officer, emeritus) “An incredible book! Innovate Inside the Box speaks to educators who are the change agents in their sphere of influence.” (Sarah Thomas, PhD, founder of EduMatch) “George and Katie's combined talents as spectacular storytellers drive this book. You will feel like you are flying through it and then realize how deeply you are learning.” (Loui Lord Nelson, PhD, author of Design and Deliver, and podcast host of UDL in 15 Minutes)

What We Say and How We Say It Matter

Summary

We all want our students to feel safe, collaborate well with others, feel ownership for their learning, and be joyfully engaged in their work. Nevertheless, many teachers end up using language patterns that undermine these goals. Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?  We want students to take responsibility for their learning, yet we use language that implies teacher ownership.  We want to build positive relationships with students, yet we use sarcasm when we get frustrated.  We want students to think learning is fun, yet we sometimes make comments that suggest the opposite.  We want students to exhibit good behavior because it's the right thing to do, yet we rely on threats and bribes, which implies students don't naturally want to be good.  What teachers say to students - when they praise or discipline, give directions or ask questions, and introduce concepts or share stories - affects student learning and behavior. A slight change in intonation can also dramatically change how language feels for students. In What We Say and How We Say It Matter, Mike Anderson digs into the nuances of language in the classroom. This audiobook's many examples will help teachers examine their language habits and intentionally improve their classroom practice so their language matches and supports their goals.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A Life Journey Worth Living by Grace

Summary

In my last 10 years of facilitating projects, I have repeatedly witnessed different people of every age and background being frustrated and stuck in a negative mindset. I now believe that an understanding of those forces is the single greatest determinant of success in making sustainable change programs. The benefit of happiness in jobs inside any Global organization is now possible.  In this book, both the life journey by Grace, and by using a mapping survey of the cases studied. I have aimed to contribute to the reason why companies must see their employees as their greatest active and never as a cost. Competitiveness between companies has made them more efficient and competitive advantage need has grown. Today is essential not only to obtain competitive advantages but also perpetual advantages. To reach the objectives proposed by this book the methodology used was based on four pillars: its nature, approach, objectives, and technical procedures. The obtained results agree with the parameters of the positive psychology field. Positive professionals not only reach better results for their companies but also reach their professional targets.  This book was based upon case studies from both South and North America organizations. The book could be expanded to new business segments, new markets and new tests could be applied in general companies across the globe. The alignment between happiness and moral development has been lost to our society and the framework to reap and sow those two particularly important factors of life is a proven way to achieve sustainable high performance as an individual or as an organization.

Visible Learning for Literacy: Grades K-12

Summary

What if someone slipped you a piece of paper listing the literacy practices that ensure students demonstrate more than a year’s worth of learning for a year spent in school? Would you keep the paper or throw it away? We think you’d keep it. And that’s precisely why acclaimed educators Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and John Hattie wrote Visible Learning for Literacy. They know teachers will want to apply Hattie’s head-turning synthesis of more than 15 years of research involving millions of students, which he used to identify the instructional routines that have the biggest impact on student learning. These practices are "visible" for teachers and students to see, because their purpose has been made clear, and when they are implemented at the right moment in a student’s learning, their effect is tangible. Yes, the "aha" moments made visible by design. With their trademark clarity and command of the research and dozens of classroom scenarios to make it all replicable, these authors apply Hattie’s research and show you: How to use the right approach at the right time so that you can more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface deep and transfer phases of learning and more expertly see when a student is ready to dive from surface to deep Which routines are most effective at specific phases of learning, including word sorts, concept mapping, close reading, annotating, discussion, formative assessment, feedback, collaborative learning, reciprocal teaching, and many more Why the eight mind frames for teachers apply so well to curriculum planning and can inspire you to be a change agent in students’ lives and part of a faculty that embraces the idea that visible teaching is a continual evaluation of one’s impact on student’s learning

The Super Reader Protocol

Summary

Be the teacher who inspires the students to read with confidence and spirit! Do you often find yourself thinking about how best to inspire students to read books? Are you worried about the next PA meeting where you’ll have to explain to parents why their kid can't keep up with their classmates' reading abilities? Alternatively, are you noticing that you're losing the attention of the advanced readers while introducing a lighter material? It almost looks like there's no way out of this situation, and that maybe you’ll have to sacrifice some kids’ learning in order to help the others. "What am I doing wrong?" you may ask yourself. "Am I not doing enough?" And you spend yet another night looking for a way to encourage and inspire the kids to read independently, identify words, and level with their peers. The truth is, some teachers don't even ask these questions and then judge their students as talented or not talented when the difference lies in their individual skills and development.

IBM SPSS: Comprehensive Beginners Guide to Learn Statistics Using IBM SPSS from A-Z

Summary

We live in a world where information takes on a life of its own and spreads rapidly. Faster than ever before. For some people, their lives depend on obtaining a steady stream of information as it affects their lives in the most telling ways. The daily news is the simplest example of this phenomenon. It is truly the lifeblood of society and helps us evolve into better informed individuals with every passing day. As one can tell, information on the whole comes at us from every direction. Its influence on business, politics, and government, banking, the STEM fields, and even the social sciences cannot be understated. But its journey begins with raw data being compiled by means of an experiment or study.   In saying that, this audiobook should serve as a reference guide for those who wish to go beyond the basics into territory that requires a solid understanding of advanced statistical concepts. Still, as a beginner, it will be wise to move forward with care so that you solidify your understanding before you begin to use these advanced methods. Finally, even if the subject matter is a bit deep, don’t be so serious that you forget to have fun with both the SPSS tool and the study of statistics on the whole.   Having said that, let’s get to crunching numbers without any further delay!

The audio edition of this best-selling resource delivers powerful new insight into the four types of educators (believers, fundamentalists, tweeners, and survivors) and how school leaders can work with each group to create positive school culture.

Summary

A practical framework to avoid burnout and keep great teachers teaching  Onward tackles the problem of educator stress, and provides a practical framework for taking the burnout out of teaching. Stress is part of the job, but when 70 percent of teachers quit within their first five years because the stress is making them physically and mentally ill, things have gone too far. Unsurprisingly, these effects are highest in difficult-to-fill positions such as math, science, and foreign languages, and in urban areas and secondary classrooms - places where we need our teachers to be especially motivated and engaged. This book offers a path to resiliency to help teachers weather the storms and bounce back - and work toward banishing the rain for good.  This actionable framework gives you concrete steps toward rediscovering yourself, your energy, and your passion for teaching. You’ll learn how a simple shift in mindset can affect your outlook, and how taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally is one of the most important things you can do. The companion workbook helps you put the framework into action, streamlining your way toward renewal and strength.  Cultivate resilience with a four-part framework based on 12 key habits. Uncover your true self, understand emotions, and use your energy where it counts. Adopt a mindful, story-telling approach to communication and community building.  Keep learning, playing, and creating to create an environment of collective celebration.  By cultivating resilience in schools, we help ensure that we are working in, teaching in, and leading organizations where every child thrives, and where the potential of every child is recognized and nurtured. Onward provides a step-by-step plan for reigniting that spark.

Cover art for Class Warfare

Class Warfare

Summary

In a reporting tour de force, award-winning journalist Steven Brill takes an uncompromising look at the adults who are fighting over America’s failure to educate its children and points the way to reversing that failure. Brill’s vivid narrative, filled with unexpected twists and turns, takes us from the Oval Office, where President Obama signs off on an unprecedented plan that will infuriate the teachers unions because it offers billions to states that win an education reform “contest”; to boisterous assemblies, where parents join the fight over their children’s schools; to a Fifth Avenue apartment, where billionaires plan a secret fund to promote school reform; to a Colorado high school, where students who seemed destined to fail are instead propelled to college; to state capitols across the country, where school reformers hoping to win Obama’s "contest" push bills that would have been unimaginable a few years ago. It’s the story of an unlikely army - fed-up public-school parents, Ivy League idealists, hedge-funders, civil rights activists, conservative Republicans, insurgent Democrats - squaring off against unions that the reformers claim are protecting a system that works for the adults but victimizes the children. Class Warfare is filled with extraordinary people taking extraordinary paths: a young woman who goes into teaching almost by accident, then becomes so talented and driven that fighting burnout becomes her biggest challenge; an antitrust lawyer who almost brought down Bill Gates’ Microsoft and now forms a partnership with Bill and Melinda Gates to overhaul New York’s schools; a naive Princeton student who launches an army of school reformers with her senior thesis; a California teachers union lobbyist who becomes the mayor of Los Angeles and then the union’s prime antagonist; a stubborn young teacher who, as a child growing up on Park Avenue, had been assumed to be learning disabled but ends up co-founding the nation’s most successful charter schools; and an anguished national union leader who walks a tightrope between compromising enough to save her union and giving in so much that her members will throw her out. Brill not only takes us inside their roller-coaster battles, he also concludes with a surprising prescription for what it will take from both sides to put the American dream back in America’s schools.

How to Educate a Citizen

Summary

“Profound, vital and correct. Hirsch highlights the essence of our American being and the radical changes in education necessary to sustain that essence. Concerned citizens, teachers, and parents take note! We ignore this book at our peril." (Joel Klein, former chancellor of New York City Public Schools) In this powerful manifesto, the best-selling author of Cultural Literacy addresses the failures of America’s early education system and its impact on our current national malaise, advocating for a shared knowledge curriculum students everywhere can be taught - an educational foundation that can help improve and strengthen America’s unity, identity, and democracy.  In How to Educate a Citizen, E.D. Hirsch continues the conversation he began 30 years ago with his classic best seller Cultural Literacy, urging America’s public schools, particularly at the elementary level, to educate our children more effectively to help heal and preserve the nation. Since the 1960s, our schools have been relying on “child-centered learning”. History, geography, science, civics, and other essential knowledge have been dumbed down by vacuous learning “techniques” and “values-based” curricula; indoctrinated by graduate schools of education, administrators and educators have believed they are teaching reading and critical thinking skills. Yet these cannot be taught in the absence of strong content, Hirsch argues.  The consequence is a loss of shared knowledge that would enable us to work together, understand one another, and make coherent, informed decisions. A broken approach to school not only leaves our children underprepared and erodes the American dream, but also loosens the spiritual bonds and unity that hold the nation together.  Drawing on early schoolmasters and educational reformers such as Noah Webster and Horace Mann, Hirsch charts the rise and fall of the American early education system and provides a blueprint for closing the national gap in knowledge, communications, and allegiance. Critical and compelling, How to Educate a Citizen galvanizes our schools to equip children with the power of shared knowledge.  Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

However, there’s no denying that being a teacher is also becoming an increasingly tougher and stressful job. You have to deal with never-ending new standards, classroom behavior issues, entitled parents, and admin expectations (to name a few). And if your classroom gets out of control, learning will be negatively affected.

This can easily make you lose sight of what made you chose this career path in the first place. This is why I wrote these books. I wanted to create simple systems and strategies that would make teaching enjoyable and exciting again. While keeping my classroom happy, engaged and focused. Whether it’s your first year teaching or you’re an education veteran, this bundle will provide you with new ideas and insights to incorporate to your style of teaching and get the best out of your class, consistently. Inside, you'll discover: The importance of the first day, and how to make the most of it The secret to getting parents to help you reach your students The motivation formula to bring students to ask to learn more How to create an atmosphere in your classroom that makes it a joy to come back everyday Positive authority: how to be respected without appearing like a tyrant Strategies for dealing efficiently with difficult students and get them on their best behavior The secret of unlimited energy How to handle changing emotion like a Zen master How your brain works and how to get the better of it The real way to use rapport and why you’re probably doing it wrong How to eliminate stress and overwhelm once and for all And much, much more....

10 Mindframes for Visible Learning: Teaching for Success

3 ratings

Summary

The original Visible Learning research concluded that one of the most important influencers of student achievement is how teachers think about learning and their own role. In Ten Mindframes for Visible Learning, John Hattie and Klaus Zierer define the 10 behaviors or mindframes that teachers need to adopt in order to maximize student success. These include:   thinking of and evaluating your impact on students’ learning; the importance of assessment and feedback for teachers; working collaboratively and the sense of community; the notion that learning needs to be challenging; engaging in dialogue and the correct balance between talking and listening; conveying the success criteria to learners; building positive relationships. These powerful mindframes, which should underpin every action in schools, are founded on the principle that teachers are evaluators, change agents, learning experts, and seekers of feedback who are constantly engaged with dialogue and challenge. This practical audiobook will show any school exactly how to implement Hattie’s mindframes to maximize success. Narrated by listener favorite Brian Arens.

Summary

Within hours of giving birth to her sixth child, Mary Kay Letourneau had her baby daughter whisked from her arms. She was then shackled and returned to her jail cell. Just years before, the pretty, personable Seattle schoolteacher was living a life many would envy - she had a handsome husband, four beautiful children, and a beloved following of students. Then she was accused of raping one of her students, and her whole world turned upside down. Was she a rapist or a victim? How did a 34-year-old married teacher fall in love with one of her sixth grade students? Was it a complete lapse of judgment, or - as she contends - the meeting of two soul mates? Were the two planning on running away together, before police caught them in a parked car? Did the couple have illicit sex in every room of the Letourneau house, as the teenager told the tabloids? Listen and learn about the case that shocked the world and rocked the headlines - about the lonely life of Mary Kay Letourneau and the young object of her obsession, the boy who fathered two of her children. You may think you know the story of Mary Kay Letourneau - but you don't know the whole story until you've heard If Loving You is Wrong. Includes interviews with Mary Kay Letourneau.

Grading for Equity

Summary

Crack open the grading conversation! Here at last - and none too soon - is a resource that delivers the research base, tools, and courage to tackle one of the most challenging and emotionally charged conversations in today’s schools: our inconsistent grading practices and the ways they can inadvertently perpetuate the achievement and opportunity gaps among our students. With Grading for Equity, Joe Feldman cuts to the core of the conversation, revealing how grading practices that are accurate, bias-resistant, and motivational will improve learning, minimize grade inflation, reduce failure rates, and become a lever for creating stronger teacher-student relationships and more caring classrooms.  Essential listening for schoolwide and individual book study or for student advocates, Grading for Equity provides: A critical historical backdrop, describing how our inherited system of grading was originally set up as a sorting mechanism to provide or deny opportunity, control students, and endorse a "fixed mind-set" about students’ academic potential - practices that are still in place a century later A summary of the research on motivation and equitable teaching and learning, establishing a rock-solid foundation and a "true north" orientation toward equitable grading practices Specific grading practices that are more equitable, along with teacher examples, strategies to solve common hiccups and concerns, and evidence of effectiveness Reflection tools for facilitating individual or group engagement and understanding As Joe writes, "Grading practices are a mirror not just for students, but for us as their teachers." Each one of us should start by asking, "What do my grading practices say about who I am and what I believe?" Then, let’s make the choice to do things differently with Grading for Equity as a reference.

The Little Book of Restorative Justice in Education

Summary

Much more than a response to harm, restorative justice nurtures relational, interconnected school cultures. The wisdom embedded within its principles and practices is being welcomed at a time when exclusionary discipline and zero-tolerance policies are recognized as perpetuating student apathy, disproportionality, and the school-to-prison pipeline.  Relying on the wisdom of early proponents of restorative justice, the daily experiences of educators, and the authors’ extensive experience as classroom teachers and researchers, this Little Book guides the growth of restorative justice in education (RJE) into the future. Incorporating activities, stories, and examples throughout the book, three major interconnected and equally important aspects of restorative justice in education are explained and applied:  creating just and equitable learning environments;  building and maintaining healthy relationships;  healing harm and transforming conflict  The Little Book of Restorative Justice in Education is a reference that practitioners can turn to repeatedly for clarity and consistency as they implement restorative justice in educational settings. This audiobook includes a bonus lecture on restorative justice by series editor Howard Zehr.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Sizzling Style

Summary

Sizzling Style is what distinguishes a spellbinding book from an ordinary one. The writer who understands the fundamentals of fictional writing style knows how to capture readers and never let them go. Too often aspiring writers are frustrated by rejection, not realizing that the problem is not the story but the way they are telling it. In this audiobook, best-selling author William Bernhardt brings his down-to-earth approach to the subject of style, revealing everything you need to know to write with the art and craft of a seasoned professional. Bernhardt goes beyond memorizing rules to a fresh approach, a philosophy of writing that will transform your work and take it to a higher level. Because as William Goldman famously said, "No one really knows what will be commercial, but everyone knows good writing from bad writing." The audiobook also includes exercises designed to help writers apply this approach to their own writing.

Understanding and Using Inclusive Teaching and Learning Approaches in Education and Training

Summary

This audiobook provides you with all the up-to-date information and guidance you need to pass first time. It focuses systematically on each of the assessment criteria in the unit and provides a suggested structure for drafting responses to meet the requirements of the unit's assessment criteria. As a lecturer/trainer/tutor/assessor/curriculum manager, how do you ensure: 1. That all individual learners' needs are identified and met effectively? 2. That full account is taken of disabilities and learning difficulties when preparing and delivering teaching, learning, and assessment strategies? 3. That strategies applied to reduce the barriers to learning experienced by disabled learners and those with learning difficulties are legitimate and reasonable and do not provide them with an unfair advantage? 4. That the most appropriate teaching, learning, and assessment methods are used? 5. That sessions are planned and delivered effectively and evidenced accordingly as part of a Micro-Teach? This audiobook addresses each of these questions, with supporting research as needed, while remaining tightly focused on the unit's assessment criteria. Out of the three units of the Award in Education and Training, Understanding and Using Inclusive Teaching and Learning Approaches in Education and Training is probably the most demanding to understand and apply. What sets this audiobook apart is the author's application of his considerable experience to this subject area in order to simplify it for those new to teaching and/or new to the subject. Whether you are delivering training or lectures to 16 to 18 year-olds, mature learners, professionals, managers, or international students with a range of learning needs, this audiobook will prove useful in preparing you not only for your unit assessment but also for work in the sector.

Secrets of Mental Math - Master the Art

Summary

Mathematics is not a new subject to us because almost everyone knows how to count either with fingers or pen and paper in whichever language we are comfortable with. Math is not only the game of numbers but also the language of nature. As a matter of fact, it has been established through research that the more we understand our universe, the more we discover interesting mathematical connections. For instance, flowers have spirals that are carefully lined up in a special sequence of numbers commonly referred to as Fibonacci numbers. This sequence can be studied, understood, and generated. A study on seashells also revealed that they form perfect mathematical curves known as logarithmic spirals that originate from a chemical balance. Apart from the flowers and seashells, star clusters also form a mathematical arrangement in the way they tag on one another. This has been observed through astronomical studies. Scientists including mathematicians have spent centuries trying to discover the nature of math and how to develop a mastery of the same. It is possible to get comfortable with calculations of any nature as long as you discover the secrets behind the numbers. The reason why it is important to unravel and enhance your command of math is because numbers are part and parcel of our daily lives, even in ways that at times we don't notice. For example, if you need to call someone, you need a phone number. The time you spend on your phone conversation is measured in hours and minutes, which are also numbers. Think of any date in history, including your birthday, graduation day or just any other significant day and you will find that recording it in numbers is much easier than in any other form. This book will show you the tricks and shortcuts that will make math so intriguing. You will definitely impress your friends and colleagues with your lightning fast calculating ability.

The Innovator's Mindset

10 ratings

Summary

Kids walk into schools full of wonder and questions. How you, as an educator, respond to students' natural curiosity can help further their own exploration and shape the way they learn today and in the future. The traditional system of education requires students to hold their questions and compliantly stick to the scheduled curriculum. But our job as educators is to provide new and better opportunities for our students. It's time to recognize that compliance doesn't foster innovation, encourage critical thinking, or inspire creativity - and those are the skills our students need to succeed. In The Innovator's Mindset, George Couros encourages teachers and administrators to empower their learners to wonder, to explore - and to become forward-thinking leaders. If we want innovative students, we need innovative educators. In other words, innovation begins with you. Ultimately, innovation is not about a skill set: it's about a mindset. The Innovator's Mindset is for you if:  You are a superintendent, district administrator, or principal who wants to empower your staff to create a culture of innovation You are a school leader - at any level - and want to help students and educators become their personal best You are a teacher who wants to create relevant learning experiences and help students develop the skills they need to be successful You'll be inspired to: Connect with other innovative educators Support teachers and leaders as learners Tap into the strength of your learning community Create ongoing opportunities for innovation Seek more effective methods for measuring progress And, most importantly, embrace change and use it to do something amazing

The successful worker of the future - a creative, independent thinker who works well in teams - would seem to be too self-contradictory to be the deliberate product of a school.   A century ago, the American educator Caroline Pratt created an innovative school that she hoped would produce such independent thinkers, but she asked herself a different question: "Was it unreasonable to try to fit the school to the child, rather than...the child to the school?” A strong-willed small-town schoolteacher who ran a one-room schoolhouse by the time she was 17, Pratt came to viscerally reject the teaching methods of her day, which often featured a long-winded teacher at the front of the room and rows of miserable children, on benches nailed to the floor, stretching to the back.   In this classic 1948 memoir, now in its fourth edition, Pratt recounts, in a wry authorial voice much closer to Will Rogers than John Dewey, how she founded what is now the dynamic City and Country School in New York City; invented the maple "unit blocks” that have become a staple in classrooms and children’s homes around the globe; and came to play an important role in reimagining preschool and primary-school education in ways that resound in the tumultuously creative age before us.    The 2014 edition features a new introduction by Ian Frazier, as well as a new chapter, "C&C at 100", by former principal Kate Turley, and an afterword by Susan F. Semel.   Read by Becky Ann Baker, Ian Frazier, and Kate Turley.   Featured music: "School Song" by Larry Goldings.   City and Country School wishes to thank Kiran Paranjpe, for initiating this production and for assisting in its development.

Complaint

Summary

All major social advances have started with a complaint. Emmeline Pankhurst, Martin Luther King, and Nelson Mandela each brought about changes by beginning with a complaint that the status quo was wrong and needed to change. Complaint has driven society forward and has led to the abolition of injustice, but it is now associated primarily with moaning and frivolous litigation. It's time to reclaim complaint as a progressive, positive force again, and this book explores every kind of complaint that people make.

A Novel Approach

Summary

As an English teacher, Kate Roberts has seen the power of whole-class novels to build community in her classroom. But she's also seen too many kids struggle too much to read them - and consequently, check out of reading altogether. Kate's had better success getting kids to actually read - and enjoy it - when they choose their own books within a workshop model. "And yet," she says, "missed my whole-class novels." In A Novel Approach, Kate takes a deep dive into the troubles and triumphs of both whole-class novels and independent reading and arrives at a persuasive conclusion: we can find a student-centered, balanced approach to teaching reading. Kate offers a practical framework for creating units that join both teaching methods together and helps you: Identify the skills your students need to learn Choose whole-class texts that will be most relevant to your kids Map out the timing of a unit and the strategies you'll teach Meet individual needs while teaching whole novels Guide students to choice books and book clubs that build on the skills being taught Above all, Kate's plan emphasizes teaching reading skills and strategies over the books themselves. "By making sure that our classes are structured in a way that really sees students and strives to meet their needs," she argues, "we can keep reaching for the dream of a class where no student is unmoved, no reader unchanged by the end of the year."

A Macat Analysis of Paul Kennedy's The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers

Summary

Born in 1945, Paul Kennedy grew up in England, watching the new political realities of the time contribute to the dismantling of the British Empire. He pursued a lifetime of scholarship, predominantly in the US, trying to understand the social, economic, and military forces that shape great powers. While previous scholars of international history had focused on "great men" and their achievements, Kennedy focused on the interdependent relationship between military might and economic growth. In his 1987 work, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers, he shows why countries that balance the economic and the military can become "great powers." Those that fail to do so, however, risk imperial overstretch and failure. Kennedy's ability not only to look back but also to look forward earned him great respect. His prediction that the United States would face a real challenge of precisely this nature in the near future was borne out by its increased military activity abroad in the wake of 9/11, and the Chinese threat to America's position as the global economic powerhouse.

Summary of Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown

Summary

Instant New York Times And Wall Street Journal best seller. Please note: This is a summary, analysis, and review of the book and not the original book. A summary from better.me - initiated to provide knowledge for people who crave development. Have you ever felt the urge to declutter your work life? Do you often find yourself stretched too thin? Do you simultaneously feel overworked and underutilized? Are you frequently busy but not productive? Do you feel like your time is constantly being hijacked by other people’s agendas? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is the Way of the Essentialist. The Way of the Essentialist isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s about getting only the right things done. It is not a time management strategy or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter. Essentialism is not one more thing - it’s a whole new way of doing everything. A must-hear for any leader, manager, or individual who wants to do less, but better, and declutter and organize their own their lives, Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.

Summary

Discover the best education for your child imaginable! With all the education options available today, choosing the right school or curriculum for your child can be daunting. But what if you knew what the ideal education looked like? Now you will! C.S. Lewis, the beloved author of the Chronicles of Narnia series, guides us on a journey that contrasts classical and contemporary education approaches. Lewis explains that while the cultivation of virtue was central to classical education, modern education stifles such moral formation by teaching a scientifically-inspired mechanistic vision of the world. By rediscovering classical education, Lewis argues that the affections of our students can be trained to love what's truly lovely and thereby experience human flourishing. Here is a preview of what you'll learn.... How to assess different educational approaches What is meant by the classical emphasis on virtue formation How our notion of the educated person has changed over the centuries The consequences of modern education for what it means to be human How to get involved in classical education How to access available classical education resources And much, much more! The best possible education is at your fingertips! Take action today and awaken your child to a world of educational flourishing!

Cover art for The Teacher Gap

The Teacher Gap

Summary

Teachers are the most important determinant of the quality of schools. We should be doing everything we can to help them get better.  In recent years, however, a cocktail of box-ticking demands, ceaseless curriculum reform, disruptive reorganisations and an audit culture that requires teachers to document their every move have left the profession deskilled and demoralised. Instead of rolling out the red carpet for teachers, we have been pulling it from under their feet.  The result is predictable: there is now a cavernous gap between the quantity and quality of teachers we need and the reality in our schools. In this audiobook, Rebecca Allen and Sam Sims draw on the latest research from economics, psychology and education to explain where the gap came from and how we can close it again. Including interviews with current and former teachers, as well as end-of-chapter practical guidance for schools, The Teacher Gap sets out how we can better recruit, train and retain the next generation of teachers.  At the heart of the audiobook is a simple message: we need to give teachers a career worth having.

Die Beziehung zwischen Ich und Du

Summary

Martin Buber (1878-1965) war wie kaum ein anderer Religionsphilosoph von dem Gedanken eines "humanistischen Judentums" beseelt - eines Judentums, das sich nicht mit dem nationalen Gedanken begnügt, sondern von menschlich-religiöser Erneuerung geprägt ist. Dieses Hörbuch nimmt die HörerInnen auf eine Reise durch das wechselhafte Leben Bubers mit und lässt nachempfinden, wie es zu dem Konzept des "humanistischen Judentums" gekommen ist und wie Bubers weiteres Leben von ihm geprägt wurde. Dabei widmet es sich im zweiten Teil ausführlich dem "dialogischen Prinzip", einem zentralen Aspekt der menschlich-religiösen Erneuerung. Anhand des Hauptwerks "Ich und Du" von 1923 wird der Frage nachgegangen, was eine wirkliche Beziehung ausmacht - eine wirkliche Beziehung nicht nur zum Mitmenschen, sondern auch zu anderen Lebewesen und zu Gott. Gerade in der heutigen schnelllebigen und oftmals auch oberflächlichen Welt ist diese Frage von hoher Aktualität.

Seven Myths About Education

1 rating

Summary

In this controversial new audiobook, the author offers a thought-provoking critique of educational orthodoxy. Drawing on her recent experience of teaching in challenging schools, she shows, through a wide range of examples and case studies, just how much classroom practice contradicts basic scientific principles. She examines seven widely held beliefs which are holding back pupils and teachers: Facts prevent understanding. Teacher-led instruction is passive. The 21st century fundamentally changes everything. You can always just look it up. We should teach transferable skills. Projects and activities are the best way to learn. Teaching knowledge is indoctrination. In each accessible and engaging chapter, the author sets out the theory of each myth, considers its practical implications and shows the worrying prevalence of such practice. Then, she explains exactly why it is a myth, with reference to the principles of modern cognitive science.

Better than Carrots or Sticks

1 rating

Summary

Classroom management is traditionally a matter of encouraging good behavior and discouraging bad by doling out rewards and punishments. But studies show that when educators empower students to address and correct misbehavior among themselves, positive results are longer lasting and wider reaching.  In Better Than Carrots or Sticks, longtime educators and best-selling authors Dominique Smith, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey provide a practical blueprint for creating a cooperative and respectful classroom climate in which students and teachers work through behavioral issues together.  After a comprehensive overview of the roots of the restorative practices movement in schools, the authors explain how to: Establish procedures and expectations for student behavior that encourage the development of positive interpersonal skills Develop a nonconfrontational rapport with even the most challenging students Implement conflict resolution strategies that prioritize relationship-building and mutual understanding over finger-pointing and retribution Rewards and punishments may help maintain order in the short term, but they're, at best, superficially effective and, at worst, counterproductive. This audiobook will prepare teachers at all levels to ensure that their classrooms are welcoming, enriching, and constructive environments built on collective respect and focused on student achievement. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

It focuses systematically on each of the assessment criteria in the unit and provides a suggested structure for drafting responses to meet the requirements of the unit's assessment criteria. As a lecturer/trainer/tutor/assessor/curriculum manager, how do you ensure: 1. that all staff are clear about the type and methods of assessment available, and how to adjust them to meet the needs of individual learners? 2. that learners are involved effectively in the assessment process and take responsibility for their own learning? 3. that the role and use of constructive feedback is understood and applied effectively and meets individual learners' needs? And.... 4. that staff are fully aware of the requirement to keep records of assessment and its implications for the continued success of the learning provider? This audiobook addresses each of these questions, with supporting research as needed, while remaining tightly focused on the unit's assessment criteria.

Know Power, Know Responsibility

Summary

Neither rewards nor punishments can push someone to approach their true potential. In fact, rewards and punishments are significant obstacles to achieving one's potential. That is why our current, compliance-based school model - with its endless array of rewards and punishments - can't lead even some students to their full potential, let alone all students.  The only thing preventing us from having schools that will unleash the potential of every child is the entrenched institutionalization of the current model. We don't change because so few people believe we can change.  In Know Power, Know Responsibility, Kevin Miller reveals the way forward. He provides a comprehensive explanation of how our current factory model of school is limiting the individual and collective potential of entire generations of children. He then illustrates an alternative model in which children are granted power over - and take responsibility for - their own learning, growth, and development. He provides counterarguments to the reasons that will arise for why replacing the factory model can't be done. Finally, Kevin offers a clear path for any community that chooses to reinvent their school model to allow every child to unleash her or his full potential.

The Ultimate Guide to Think About Anti-Racism and Social Justice

Summary

Before your child can pronounce the words White or Black, referring to the color of the skin, make sure he sees enough people from different ethnic backgrounds. If you do not live in an area where there is racial diversity, explore children's books that deal with people of different races. It will help your child understand that a normal environment includes people of different skin colors. At this age, although children clearly identify themselves and others as males or females, they still do not do so by race. They are still not able to categorize it this way. A child who notices a difference in the color of the skin does not understand the difference between one race and another. If your child talks about a person's color, first find out what he says that and why. It may refer to the color of the sweater that the lord wears and not the color of his skin. When your child makes a comment that is clearly about the color of the skin, don't make a scene. Whatever the context, it will not yet have an emotional or social meaning. He just says what he sees. Although it is good to talk openly about differences, avoid putting too much emphasis on races. Pre-school children are too young to process the intricacies of racial problems. Let the subject come out naturally and keep the conversation on a simple level. Watch what you say. In this audiobook, we will cover: Making sense of the world (brief American history until recent events of kneeling protest and Black Lives Matter) Who am I? (identity, ethnicity) Psychological understanding of prejudice: see Piaget (with experiments with children) What racism is What is anti-racism? What is social justice? Kids' reaction to diversity And much more! Your main message must be that your ethnic background is part of who you are and that you treat everyone fairly and equitably. We're all different, but no color is better than another. Filter the media. If a television program or film promotes stereotypes or racism, turns it off. Choose programs and DVDs that address the race in a balanced way. Keep in mind that old films, including classics like The Lady and the Tramp and Peter Pan, often reflect ethnic stereotypes. This audiobook will help you kid find a balance in this racial charged environment and at the same time be able to void his/her opinion without fear. Grief or silence will give your child the impression that you cannot talk about it, or that a racist comment seems right or acceptable to you. Children watch their parents' reactions to learn moral values and learn from your actions in addition to learning from your words As with other difficult issues, it is helpful to start talking to your child and then do it often, about racial diversity. As you answer your curiosity, you will encourage more adult conversations as you grow up. Want to know more about this audiobook? Buy now!

Schauerromantik

Summary

Romantik - was verbinden wir mit diesem (Epochen-) Begriff? Sehnsucht, Natur, Schönheit, vielleicht sogar Idyllen? Das große Projekt der Wiederverzauberung einer aufklärungsversehrten Welt? All dies trifft wohl zu und ist doch bestenfalls die halbe Wahrheit. Denn der Blick der Romantiker wendete sich keineswegs nur in den Himmel oder in lichte Gefilde, sondern vor allem unter die Oberfläche des Rationalen. Und dort lauerte - und lauert! - reichlich Dunkles... Cornelia Ilbrig führt in diesem Hörbuch konzise in die Tradition der "schwarzen Romantik" ein und stellt ihre deutschen Hauptvertreter, E.T.A. Hoffmann und Ludwig Tieck, anschaulich vor. Nach einier kurzen Einführung in die "gothic novel" widmet sie sich Texten wie den "Elexieren des Teufels", dem "Sandmann" oder dem "Ritter Blaubart" undzeigt: Angst, das Unheimliche und ihre ästhetische Beschwörung und Bannung liegen nah beieinander.

Summary

This is a great beginners guide for those who have a learning disorder or disability. Often, dyslexia doesn’t get discovered until it is too late. Personally, I know people who have gone through elementary, middle school and high school without any teacher ever noticing.   This has to stop.   Dyslexia is a common problem and can be helped and noticed when given the right tools. My aim in providing you this intricate guide is to show you those tools. Recognition of the problem is the first step, as is knowing where it came and what the symptoms are. From there, one could tap into programs and exercises that can stimulate the child’s senses and help him/her become better at reading in a shorter time period. This is what it’s all about: To push them into the fast track towards the same capabilities as any other person without the unnecessary frustrations and disappointments so many children experience.   Become familiar with this problem and learn how to recognize it now. In order to do this, I encourage you to begin listening to this book.

The Elements of Eloquence

Summary

From classic poetry to pop lyrics, from Charles Dickens to Dolly Parton, even from Jesus to James Bond, Mark Forsyth explains the secrets that make a phrase - such as "O Captain! My Captain!" or "To be or not to be" - memorable. In his inimitably entertaining and wonderfully witty style, he takes apart famous phrases and shows how you too can write like Shakespeare or quip like Oscar Wilde. Whether you’re aiming to achieve literary immortality or just hoping to deliver the perfect one-liner, The Elements of Eloquence proves that you don’t need to have anything important to say - you simply need to say it well. In an age unhealthily obsessed with the power of substance, this is a book that highlights the importance of style.

Ethereum Bible: All You Need to Know About Ethereum

Summary

The title is self-explanatory. This book is designed as a guide to help you understand, invest in, and trade with cryptocurrency. The specific focus of this book is Ethereum or Ether (ETH). If you are someone who follows the financial markets closely, you will have noticed that cryptocurrencies are steadily increasing in their popularity. The past couple of years, in particular, have seen the tremendous growth of different types of cryptocurrencies. It is therefore unsurprising that everyone wants to figure out a way to start investing in them. Not only are they becoming more and more popular and accepted, but they are also changing the way we look at traditional financial systems themselves. The problem is that the information available about them that's crucial to understanding how they work is always presented in a complex manner.  You might be led to believe that it is an incredibly complicated system that requires your own personal Yoda and years of training. While it would be great to be a Jedi, I want to tell you that this process is not as long-winded as that. You might not have experience with cryptocurrencies and may just be someone who is looking to learn more. This book will help you in this regard, as it starts from scratch.  The focus of this book is Ethereum in particular because it has been touted a game changer in the world of cryptocurrency. Second only to bitcoin regarding value and popularity, many believe that it will eventually be the winner of that race. Ethereum is not showing any signs of slowing down, and perhaps it is time for you to consider the option of investing in it seriously too. This book is designed to give you the information you need and to show you how you can do this. Through the course of this book, various concepts associated with Ethereum will be explored in greater detail. This will help you consider cryptocurrency as an investment opportunity in a more nuanced manner.

How to Educate an American

Summary

In the years after A Nation at Risk, conservatives' ideas to reform America's lagging education system gained much traction. Key items like school choice and rigorous academic standards drew bipartisan support and were put into practice across the country. Today, these gains are in retreat, ceding ground to progressive nostrums that do little to boost the skills and knowledge of young people. Far from being discouraged, however, conservatives should seize the moment to refresh their vision of quality K-12 education for today's America. These essays by 20 leading conservative thinkers do just that. Students, according to this vision, should complete high school with a thorough understanding of the country's history, including gratitude for its sacrifices, respect for its achievements, and awareness of its shortcomings. They should also learn to be trustworthy stewards of a democratic republic, capable of exercising virtue and civic responsibility. Beyond helping to form their character, schools ought to ready their pupils for careers that are productive, rewarding, and dignified. Excellent technical-training opportunities will await those not headed to a traditional college. All students must come to understand that they can succeed in America if they are industrious, creative, and responsible.

Opening Your Chakras

Summary

If you’ve always wanted health, balance, clarity, and inner strength but nothing you’ve tried has worked, then keep reading....

Are you sick and tired of feeling lost and listless?

Have you tried endless other solutions but nothing seems to work for more than a few weeks?

Do you finally want to say goodbye to tired ineffective approaches, and discover something which works for you?

If so, then you’ve come to the right place.

You see, achieving health, balance, clarity, and inner strength doesn’t have to be difficult.

Even if you’ve tried meditation, medication, or every diet under the sun.

In fact, it’s easier than you think.

A study out of LCU demonstrated that individuals who practice opening and healing their Chakras showed a 34 percent decrease in all-cause mortality, compared to control groups.

And another study out of Coventry University stated that “opening" and "healing" a person’s Chakras seems to have a direct and positive effect on the individual’s health and objective happiness with as little as 2 weeks of practice.

Which means you can get healthy, happy, and full of life without years of hard work.

Here’s just a tiny fraction of what you’ll discover:

The seven most effective ways to open your Chakras

Why practicing meditation is hurting your progress - and what to do instead

Five harmful myths doctors tells you about "alternative" medicine

The four things you should know about healing your Chakras

A cool trick used by Katy Perry which helps you balance your Chakras 

The biggest mistake people make in opening and healing their own Chakras

....and much, much more!

Take a second to imagine how you’ll feel once you’re full of health, balance clarity, and inner strength, and how your family and friends will react when they see you living your best life.

So even if you’re tired, unhealthy, and unclear on your purpose in life, you can get clarity, balance, and health with Opening Your Chakras.

Learning Outside the Lines

Summary

Learning with YOUR purpose in mind - not your parents', not your teacher's, not your school's... Every day, your school, your teachers, and even your peers draw lines to measure and standardize intelligence. They decide what criteria make one person smart and another person stupid. They decide who will succeed and who will just get by. Perhaps you find yourself outside the norm, because you learn differently - but, unlike your classmates, you have no system in place that consistently supports your ability and desire to learn. Simply put, you are considered lazy and stupid. You are expected to fail.  Learning Outside the Lines is written by two such "academic failures" - that is, two academic failures who graduated from Brown University at the top of their class. Jonathan Mooney and David Cole teach you how to take control of your education and find true success - and they offer all the reasons why you should persevere. Witty, bold, and disarmingly honest, Learning Outside the Lines takes you on a journey toward personal empowerment and profound educational change, proving once again that rules sometimes need to be broken.

Mind mapping is a note-taking system which allows you to take better, faster, and more efficient notes. In conventional note-taking, you write down information line by line. With mind maps, you organize the information more in the form of a diagram, starting with a central key idea drawn in the center of the paper. In addition to enhancing your note taking skills, mind maps help you improve your studying, writing, presenting, brainstorming, and creative skills. It is one of the best note-taking skills anyone can learn.

A Macat Analysis of David Hume's An Enquiry of Human Understanding

Summary

Excited by the possibilities hinted at by the major scientific breakthroughs of the day, Scottish philosopher David Hume set out to construct a science of the mind. 1748's An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding is the result. A work that had a huge influence on great thinkers including celebrated German philosopher Immanuel Kant, An Enquiry is Hume's examination of how we obtain information and form beliefs. He argues that we mainly gain knowledge through our senses, a theory known as empiricism. But while the impressions from our senses are key to our beliefs about the world, Hume argues that reason and facts play only a limited part. His thinking here led him to dangerous places. His conclusion that many religious beliefs of the time could therefore not be justified was viewed with great suspicion during his lifetime. Yet An Enquiry is now widely considered one of the greatest works of Western philosophy, and Hume one of its key thinkers. You can find out more about how David Hume's ideas have been challenged and applied - and how his work has impacted on thinkers in other academic disciplines - by exploring further in the Macat Library.

Consider This

Summary

The educators of ancient Greece and Rome gave the world a vision of what education should be. The medieval and Renaissance teachers valued their insights and lofty goals. Christian educators such as Augustine, Erasmus, Milton, and Comenius drew from the teaching of Plato, Aristotle, and Quintilian those truths which they found universal and potent. Charlotte Mason developed her own philosophy of education from the riches of the past, not accidentally but purposefully. She and the other founding members of the Parents’ National Educational Union in England were inspired by the classical educators of history and set out to achieve their vision in modern education. They succeeded - and thanks to Charlotte Mason’s clear development of methods to realize the classical ideals, we can partake of the classical tradition as well. Classical education is an education of the heart and conscience as much as it is an education of the mind. This audiobook explores the classical emphasis on formation of character and links Charlotte Masons ideas to the thinkers of the past. This is not a "how to" book about education, but a "why to" book that will bring clarity to many of the ideas you already know about teaching and learning. "I thought that my fire for heart education could not be further stoked; I was mistaken. Karen Glass has here laid out the thrilling joy of education, for both the teacher and the taught."

Pursuing Higher Education: Highs, Lows, & Options

Summary

This book is for students who are starting at the high school level, ninth to 12th-grade, and all high school graduates, whether you have received a high school diploma or GED! For parents, who will be supporting their children in their decision-making process, this book is for you, too. 

Most people have quickly forgotten the main aim of education: imparting knowledge. This is due to the educational problems that are on the rise: teachers who don’t improve their methods of teaching, and students who lack interest in the educational institution and what it offers. Education isn’t a smooth path. Whether you’ve gone through the strenuous experience of high school, had your fun, or not, what’s next? If you’re planning on furthering your education; it’s college or a trade. But if not, have you considered entering into the workforce or military - and for that business-minded student, what about entrepreneurship? 

Do you really have a dream that you would like to pursue? Are you serious about your future? This book will guide you on the highs, lows, and options of pursuing higher education and your future. Your future could be an option; the opposite of higher education, and I hope you stay throughout the cycle to get the full experience.

Summary

Like most teachers, you want to use your life to make an impact - not only in the classroom, but in your family, community, and the world. And yet it feels impossible to have that focus when you’re exhausted and overwhelmed. How can you make a difference when you’re distracted by never-ending paperwork, meetings, errands, and housework? How can you give the best of yourself when you’re bogged down with mundane tasks and unfulfilling obligations? You’ll never have enough time to do everything. But there is a way to free up time, attention, and energy for the things that really matter: the activities that truly impact student learning; the practices that make you a more effective educator; and the routines that make your home and personal life more fulfilling. Throughout this book, you’ll learn how to disrupt the status quo by challenging school and cultural norms. You’ll also discover how to create healthy boundaries, overcome feelings of self-doubt, release yourself from perfectionism, and decide what work/life balance looks like for you. Fewer Things, Better will help you challenge the correlation between hours worked and effectiveness. It’s not about how much you’re working; it’s what you’re focusing on. As you listen, you’ll gain clarity on what’s most important in every aspect of your life and work so you can allocate time to your biggest priorities. You’ll deepen the courage it takes to live with intentionality, so you can do more of what you love and let go of habits and expectations which aren’t serving you well. It’s time to release yourself from the feeling of never having done enough. It’s time to stop giving in to the pressure to be constantly busy. It’s time to do fewer things, so what remains can be done even better.

The Hollow Men

Summary

College curriculums that were once centered on instruction in the classics of Western civilization have become smorgasbords where almost anything qualifies as a course in the liberal arts and where political conformity is enforced by professors. Stanford University, caving in to demands from the Black Student Union (“We don’t want to read any more dead white guys”), removed Homer, Dante, Luther, Darwin, and Freud from its course on Western civilization. At Dartmouth, a professor of women’s studies describes the goal of her program as, simply, “the reconstruction of reality.” Sykes calls the abandonment of the great books a “startling triumph for unreason” and shows how American higher education is turning out hollow men and women––apathetic, ignorant, and empty of the civilizational patrimony that should be theirs.

Summary

Are you falling out of love with teaching? Did the stress and overwhelm of the job finally get to you? Are you looking for a way to make teaching exciting again and reignite the fire inside you? For many of us, teaching is not a job, it’s a calling. And if you’re listening to this, I’m quite confident that you feel the same way. We entered this profession because we give a damn and we want to make a difference. We become ourselves when we step in our classroom. We live for this a-ha moment in the eyes of a student, that “lightbulb instant” where he finally gets it. However, there’s no denying that being a teacher is also becoming an increasingly tougher and stressful job. Not because of the kids, but because of the system and the other adults. You have to deal with never-ending new standards and admin expectations. You have to spend hours explaining to parents, who can’t accept their children being not academically perfect, why you can’t just pass their kid. You’ll give up nights, as well as weekends, grading papers, planning lessons, and reading supplemental material while having to listen to your friends and family complain about how you get those cushy summers off because they don’t understand how salaries work. All this can easily make you lose sight of what made you chose this career path in the first place. I know, I’ve been there. And I also know countless amazing teachers that finally gave up even though they were born to be teaching. And when a parent eventually called me an “overpaid babysitter”, I almost gave up myself. Instead, I immersed myself in research to create a system that could make teaching exciting again. I wanted to use simple strategies to eliminate my stress and overwhelm while boosting my energy, mood and ability to inspire. I spent hundreds of hours studying the latest scientific research on happiness and positive psychology before creating a system that works for me, and all everyone I shared it with.  And I’m happy to share it with you today. Inside, you'll discover: The secret of unlimited energy How to eliminate stress and overwhelm once and for all How to handle changing emotion like a Zen master The secrets of your brain and how to get the better of it The secret ace in the hole you’re underusing The only way to use rapport and why you’re probably doing it wrong And much, much more....

Cover art for The Merit Myth

The Merit Myth

Summary

Colleges fiercely defend America's deeply stratified higher education system, arguing that the most exclusive schools reward the brightest kids who have worked hard to get there. But it doesn't actually work this way. As the recent college-admissions bribery scandal demonstrates, social inequalities and colleges' pursuit of wealth and prestige stack the deck in favor of the children of privilege.  The Merit Myth calls out our elite colleges for what they are: institutions that pay lip service to social mobility and meritocracy, while offering little of either. Through policies that exacerbate inequality, including generously funding so-called merit-based aid for already-wealthy students rather than expanding opportunity for those who need it most, US universities are woefully complicit in reproducing the racial and class privilege across generations that they pretend to abhor.  This timely and incisive book argues for unrigging the game by dramatically reducing the weight of the SAT/ACT; measuring colleges by their outcomes, not their inputs; designing affirmative action plans that take into consideration both race and class; and making 14 the new 12 - guaranteeing every American a public K-14 education. The Merit Myth shows the way for higher education to become the beacon of opportunity it was intended to be.

Summary: 'David & Goliath' by Malcolm Gladwell

Summary

Whether a conflict is between two nations, two businesses or even a person battling physical dysfunction, we tend to assume that the bigger and better armed of the opponents will take the day. That's why stories like the battle between Goliath and David capture our imagination - they are so remarkable. But Malcolm Gladwell proposes that we are missing out on the bigger picture - we assume too much about outcomes and miss some realities which paint a different picture. Certainly, Goliath presents an imposing threat, but he is generally not as invulnerable as we initially expect, and David is not without resources and options. In making this point in David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants, Gladwell reviews a number of underdog stories which illustrate his core message - that David is much more likely to succeed against Goliath than is generally expected - while providing insights into how each of us can find the resources needed to overcome our own Goliaths.

A Macat Analysis of Plato's Republic

Summary

What is justice? How should an individual and a society behave justly? And how do they learn how to do so? These are just some of the core questions that Plato's The Republic considers. An extraordinarily ambitious work, Republic has made important contributions to many branches of modern philosophy. The work unfolds as a series of conversations in which participants set out a number of different theories of justice, and then imagine how these theories might become reality within the political structure of a city. In examining justice, Plato investigates an enormous range of questions in the areas of ethics, politics, and even the nature of existence itself. Although written nearly 2,500 years ago, the influence of Republic is still felt today. Many consider it to be Plato's most important work, and it has played a key role in the birth and development of political philosophy, influencing the work of many important thinkers, from Niccolò Machiavelli to John Rawls.

Summary

We’ve all had great teachers who opened new worlds, maybe even changed our lives. What made them so great? Everyone agrees that a great teacher can have an enormous impact. Yet we still don't know what, precisely, makes a teacher great. Is it a matter of natural-born charisma? Or does exceptional teaching require something more? Building a Better Teacher introduces a new generation of educators, exploring the intricate science underlying their art. A former principal studies the country’s star teachers and discovers a set of common techniques that help children pay attention. Two math teachers videotape a year of lessons and develop an approach that has nine-year-olds writing sophisticated mathematical proofs. A former high school teacher works with a top English instructor to pinpoint the key interactions a teacher must foster to initiate a rich classroom discussion. Through their stories, and the hilarious and heartbreaking theater that unfolds in the classroom every day, Elizabeth Green takes us on a journey into the heart of a profession that impacts every child in America.

Crimes of the Educators

Summary

Utopian dictators like Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and Mao are criminals – genocidal psychopaths who have killed more human beings in the last hundred years than any other ideologues in history. They don’t limit their murder to individuals, but to entire nations.  In the United States, another form of utopians, the "progressives," have tried to destroy traditional America by strategically dumbing down her people. America’s future is being crippled on purpose in order to fundamentally transform the nation, its values, and its system of government. Laid out a century ago by progressive luminary John Dewey, the fruits of his schemes are plain to see today. Dewey got rid of the traditional intensive phonics method of instruction and imposed a "look-say," "sight," or "whole-word" method that forces children to read English as if it were Chinese. The method is widely used in today’s public schools, which is a major reason there are so many failing public schools that cannot teach children the basics. This can only be considered a blatant form of child abuse. American author and veteran educator Samuel Blumenfeld and journalist Alex Newman have taken on the public education establishment as never before and exposed it for the de facto criminal enterprise it is. Crimes of the Educators reveals how the architects of America's public school disaster implemented a plan to socialize the United States by knowingly and willingly dumbing down the population, a mission closer to success than ever as the Obama administration works relentlessly to nationalize K-12 schooling with Common Core. The whole-word method of teaching children to read – introduced by John Dewey and colleagues in the early 20th century and which permeates Common Core – is a significant cause of dyslexia among students. Public education's war against religion, the "great American math disaster," promotion of death education, and the government’s plan to lower standards for all so "no one is left behind" is destroying the logic, reasoning, and overall educational prowess of America’s next generation.  According to the Program for International Student Assessment, which collects test results from 65 countries for its rankings  In reading, 19 other locales scored higher than US students. In science, 22 education systems scored above the US. In mathematics, 29 nations and other jurisdictions outperformed the United States. Journalist Henry Mencken said it best in 1924 when he wrote that the aim of public education is “to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality." It is time to hold the Department of Education accountable for the crimes of the educators.

Inside Teaching: How Classroom Life Undermines Reform

Summary

Reform the schools, improve teaching: these battle cries of American education have been echoing for 20 years. So why does teaching change so little? Arguing that too many would-be reformers know nothing about the conflicting demands of teaching, Mary Kennedy takes us into the controlled commotion of the classroom, revealing how painstakingly teachers plan their lessons, and how many different ways things go awry. Teachers try simultaneously to keep track of materials, time, students, and ideas. In their effort to hold all of these things together, they can inadvertently quash students' enthusiasm and miss valuable teachable moments. Kennedy argues that pedagogical reform proposals that do not acknowledge all of the things teachers need to do are bound to fail. If reformers want students to learn, they must address all of the problems teachers face, not just those that interest them. The book is published by Harvard University Press.

The School Discipline Fix

1 rating

Summary

Traditional school discipline is ineffective and often damaging, relying heavily on punishments and motivational procedures aimed at giving students the incentive to behave better. There is a better way. Dr. Ablon and his coauthor Dr. Pollastri have been working with schools throughout the world to refine the Collaborative Problem-Solving (CPS) approach, creating a step-by-step program for educators based on the recognition - from research in neuroscience - that challenging classroom behaviors are due to a deficit of skill, not will. This book provides everything needed to implement the program, including reproducible assessment tools to pinpoint skill deficits in areas like frustration tolerance and flexibility that are at the root of students' challenging behaviors.   Whether you are a teacher, counselor, coach, or administrator, the CPS approach to school discipline will provide you with a new mindset, an assessment process, and an effective intervention plan for each of your challenging students. You will walk away with strategies that are immediately actionable with the students in your life.

Overall, by learning and implementing the Montessori Method in your home, you are creating a world where everyone is involved and children are thriving. "We cannot create observers by saying 'observe', but by giving them the power and the means for this observation and these means are procured through education of the senses." - Maria Montessori

Eine große Ausstellung in Speyer wird aus diesen Anlässen die deutsche Königsdynastie des 11. und 12. Jahrhunderts würdigen. Das vorliegende Hörbuch bietet einen leicht verständlichen und fundierten Überblick über die Zeit der Salier und die Aspekte, die heute noch wichtig sind: vom sprichwörtlich gewordenen Gang nach Canossa bis zum Investiturstreit, der Trennung von Kirche und Staat bis zu den Anfängen einer deutschen Geschichte.

Unschool Yourself First

Summary

If you are considering the unschooling path for your child or know someone who is, this is the best book to get you started; in fact, this book was made specifically for you, the parent who is on the fence regarding this philosophy and method of education.  If you have friends and relatives who are not accepting your choice to unschool, this is the book for you and even more so for them. In this book, Mark Beaumont, MEd, weaves an interesting, helpful, and powerful combination of the history of school, educational research as it pertains to unschooling, and Mark’s very own creation, the Personal Learner Profile, in order to build a scaffold bridging the spaces between the paths of traditional, coercive schooling and that of the unschooler.  Adding to these three primary components of the book, Mark also uses a plethora of links to provide valuable information aimed at building confidence and providing deep understanding of the ways of unschooling as well as helping to train parents how to unschool themselves and how utilize the many benefits that the internet and 21st-century education provides.  The 21st-century paradigm is changing so rapidly that it will be those who are able to adapt to this change who will be the kingmakers of the coming century and beyond. Unschoolers are educated in the optimum way to take on these new challenges and to thrive in these 21st-century conditions. Yesterday's pack mules are today's hunters and gatherers (rote recall vs. free range unschoolers).  Through the utilization of the internet and the many links and resources provided in this book, you will be granted access to a variety of multimedia resources including documentaries, TED Talks, articles, and other tidbits that will enhance your ability to use 21st century tools and to open up these advantages for your child as well.  Mark Beaumont, MEd, has nearly 20 years of classroom experience internationally and in the US; he obtained his master's degree from George Mason University in international curriculum and instruction. He is a fully licensed educator both in the United States and internationally. He has built homeschool and unschool cooperatives in Asia and the United States, and he works diligently advocating the philosophy and methods of unschooling. Mark not only preach the ways of unschooling, he is currently raising his own child this way. In short, he practices what he preaches.  If you are looking for a way to overcome your fear and to bolster yourself with a deep understanding of the unschooling ways of living and learning, this book is for you.

How to Differentiate Instruction in Academically Diverse Classrooms, Third Edition

Summary

We differentiate instruction to honor the reality of the students we teach. They are energetic and outgoing. They are quiet and curious. They are confident and self-doubting. They are interested in a thousand things and deeply immersed in a particular topic. They are academically advanced and “kids in the middle” and struggling due to cognitive, emotional, economic, or sociological challenges. More of them than ever speak a different language at home. They learn at different rates and in different ways. And they all come together in our academically diverse classrooms. Written as a practical guide for teachers, this audio edition of Carol Ann Tomlinson’s groundbreaking work covers the fundamentals of differentiation and provides additional guidelines and new strategies for how to go about it. You’ll learn:  What differentiation is and why it’s essential How to set up the flexible and supportive learning environment that promotes success How to manage a differentiated classroom How to plan lessons differentiated by readiness, interest, and learning profile How to differentiate content, process, and products How to prepare students, parents, and yourself for the challenge of differentiation First published in 1995 as How to Differentiate Instruction in Mixed-Ability Classrooms, this new edition reflects evolving best practices in education, the experiences of practitioners throughout the United States and around the world, and Tomlinson’s continuing thinking about how to help each and every student access challenging, high-quality curriculum; engage in meaning-rich learning experiences; and feel at home in a school environment that “fits.” PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A Macat Analysis of Marcus Aurelius's Meditations

Summary

Most likely written between 170 and 180 CE, Meditations is a remarkable work, a unique insight into the thinking of one of the most conscientious and able Roman emperors, Marcus Aurelius, who ruled at the apex of Roman might in the late second century CE. It was never intended to be widely circulated. Indeed, it was almost unknown until the 16th century. The work is like a series of jottings, written for its author's own improvement; it has no formal structure and its arguments follow no obvious pattern. Yet it has an immediacy that makes it one of the best and most accessible accounts of what is known as Stoic philosophy. Its distinctive approach, and its belief that philosophy can serve as a practical way of living a more balanced life, chime perfectly with our modern-day concerns. Meditations has won many admirers, including former US president Bill Clinton and Wen Jiabao, premier of China from 2003 to 2013.

Summary

Clear, easy principles to spot what's nonsense and what's reliable  Each year, teachers, administrators, and parents face a barrage of new education software, games, workbooks, and professional development programs purporting to be "based on the latest research." While some of these products are rooted in solid science, the research behind many others is grossly exaggerated. This book, written by a top thought leader, helps everyday teachers, administrators, and family members - who don't have years of statistics courses under their belts - separate the wheat from the chaff and determine which new educational approaches are scientifically supported and worth adopting.  Author's first book, Why Don't Students Like School?, catapulted him to superstar status in the field of education  Willingham's work has been hailed as "brilliant analysis" by The Wall Street Journal and "a triumph" by The Washington Post  Author has blogged for The Washington Post and Brittanica.com, and wrote a column for American Educator  In this insightful book, thought leader and best-selling author Dan Willingham offers an easy, reliable way to discern which programs are scientifically supported and which are the equivalent of "educational snake oil."  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Home at Last

Summary

Sent away to boarding school on his eighth birthday, Mark Stibbe watched his adoptive parents drive down a gravel road, leaving him standing in front of a huge country house with his trunk and his teddy. That night, already confused and frightened, he was given the first of four beatings in his first two weeks. This trauma of abandonment and abuse was to scar Stibbe's life until his 50s, when divorce forced him to deal with his "boarded heart".   In this ground-breaking book, Stibbe argues that there are many thousands of wounded people just like him, men and women who suffer throughout their lives with homesick souls. This often leads to them being driven to succeed in their work while failing to engage emotionally at home.   Home at Last tells a poignant story and offers a unique model of healing. It provides psychological insights, yes, but it also delivers the blueprint for a spiritual homecoming. Arguing that boarding schools are orphanages for the privileged, Stibbe shows how we can only truly find healing in the perfect father's love.   Home At Last is split into two parts. The first part looks the cycle of pain created by the boarding school wound. This involves four deep impacts to the soul: desertion, deprivation, disengagement, and dependency. The second part, the cycle of healing, embraces the four stages of the healing journey: revelation, restoration, reconnection, and recovery. These exactly correspond to the four deep impacts to the soul. They are four steps towards the father's house. They must be experienced if former boarders are to enjoy the long-awaited end to their spiritual winter.

Summary

Summary Of Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be by Rachel Hollis | Book Summary | Book Addict The book Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis carries one main theme throughout its chapters: that what becomes of your life, ultimately, is up to you. You have so much power to dictate the outcome of your life, but without trashing all the untruths you’ve been fed so far (and even the ones you fed yourself), there’s no harnessing the potential of that truth. Hollis teaches women how to overcome these falsehoods by sharing her personal experiences. Each chapter begins with her telling readers how she once patterned her life after a particular lie. She ends each chapter with a couple of tips that helped her overcome said lie. Some of the lies she tackles border on self-worth, the true source of happiness, the root of gossip, and many more. This book contains a comprehensive, well-detailed summary and key takeaways of the original book by Rachel Hollis. It summarizes the book in detail, to help people effectively understand, articulate, and imbibe the original work by this great author. This book is not meant to replace the original book but to serve as a companion to it. Includes:  Executivesummary of the original book  Key points of each chapter Brief chapter-by-chapter summaries Disclaimer: This is a summary, review of the book Girl, Wash Your Face and not the original book.

Addiction!

Summary

Addiction is motivated by a secretive force that can’t be seen on the surface, but the yearning desire is never fulfilled because the craving comes back time and time again. No person starts out doing anything with the intention of becoming an addict. Every addiction stems from something. The root cause of every addiction begins with fear or pain to some degree. Many issues can play a part in the personal development of an addiction. Some people use drugs out of curiosity, influence from peers, or for pleasure.

Higher Expectations

Summary

In recent decades, cognitive psychologists have cast new light on human development and given colleges new possibilities for helping students acquire skills and qualities that will enhance their lives and increase their contributions to society. In this landmark book, Derek Bok explores how colleges can reap the benefits of these discoveries and create a more robust undergraduate curriculum for the 21st century.  Prior to this century, most psychologists thought that creativity, empathy, resilience, conscientiousness, and most personality traits were largely fixed by early childhood. What researchers have now discovered is that virtually all of these qualities continue to change through early adulthood and often well beyond. Such findings suggest that educators may be able to do much more than was previously thought possible to teach students to develop these important characteristics and thereby enable them to flourish in later life.  In Higher Expectations, Bok identifies the hurdles to institutional change, proposes sensible reforms, and demonstrates how our colleges can help students lead more successful, productive, and meaningful lives.

Cover art for Awakening Wonder

Awakening Wonder

Summary

In his masterful work, The Abolition of Man, C. S. Lewis observed how modern education was changing our conception of what it means to be human. By cutting off students from the transcendent values of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty, modern schools ceased cultivating virtue in students and instead communicated a mechanistic vision of the world that viewed students as products to be engineered. Lewis believed that in seeking to control nature, modern conditioners would also seek to control humans and remake them according to the preference of the conditioners, since any appeal to Truth, Goodness, or Beauty had been rejected. Lewis argued that we must recover these transcendent values in order to prevent the dehumanizing tendency in modern education and renew the cultivation of virtue in our students. With Awakening Wonder, Steve Turley demonstrates that it is precisely such a recovery that is at the heart of the current classical education renewal. Once again, Truth, Goodness, and Beauty are celebrated as those objective values that are essential for cultivating students as flourishing human beings. In these pages you will discover the history and development of these transcendent values and how they redeem our senses and sanctify our imaginations. Teachers will also learn how to incorporate these values into their teaching to awaken awe and wonder in both themselves and their students.

Excel Formulas and Functions

Summary

For many of us, Excel is nothing more than a basic spreadsheet, something we may use on the odd occasion, but for some, it is part of our daily lives. Microsoft Excel is more than just a spreadsheet; it is an essential tool for businesses. In fact, it would be fair to say that it is probably one of the most important tools that a business could have at its disposal. Some of the best uses for Excel include extracting data into charts, using it to identify problems and trends, bringing all the data together from multiple files and other sources so it’s all in one easy-to-use place, and much more. The basis of Excel lies in formulas and functions, used for storing data and retrieving it, for doing calculations, and for analyzing data, and is all in one simple grid format. It is these formulas and functions that provide the biggest headaches for inexperienced users and that is what my guide is all about. It will teach you how to use them and also look at some of the most commonly used ones. Given that there are more than 400 functions alone and not much less in the way of formulas, I couldn’t possibly go over every single one of them. You don’t need to know them all; Excel has a built-in Function Wizard that helps you to get the best function for what you are doing, and built-in Formula Intellisense helps with formulas. Without further ado, let’s immerse ourselves in the world of Excel formulas and functions.

Why Are You Still Sending Your Kids to School?

1 rating

Summary

For some kids, school offers a positive and engaging experience. For others, it's a boring, stressful, and frustrating waste of time. If your child is in the second category, why keep tormenting them? Instead, why not help them find an educational environment where they feel genuinely motivated, excited, and empowered?   In this eye-opening book, Blake Boles makes the case for leaving conventional school and taking one of the many alternative paths through K-12 that exist today. He addresses parents' major concerns about unconventional education - Can my kids still go to college? Will they still be employable? How will they learn to work hard? - while highlighting the hidden benefits of self-directed learning, such as improved parent-child relationships, a more balanced decision-making process regarding college, and a heightened sense of autonomy and connection.   Drawing upon 15 years of work as a mentor and guide for adolescents in alternative and experiential learning environments - as well as his own unconventional life path - Boles weaves together narrative, theory, and research to build a powerful argument for granting children unusual levels of freedom and responsibility.

Gifted People

Summary

Whenever you say that you're "gifted", people automatically assume it simply means that you think you're smarter than anyone else, or just exceptionally smart. Although being very intelligent is a part of that "gifted" label we give some people, it's not the full truth. There is so much more to it.

Being gifted is a whole set of qualities, frustrations, traits, characteristics, and situations that accompany an intelligent mind. Being "gifted" sounds as if it is all beneficial, and to a degree, there is a lot you can do with that gift. But if you're really gifted, a certain number of challenges will come your way too. Here are some of those challenges you will listen about:

Other people may not understand the fast way you process information and lay connections between one thing and another. This can be frustrating.

Gifted people are often introverted, but being gifted is a certain push or drive that doesn't equal the exact same description of simply being an introvert. It's still different.

A high intelligence quotient has its pros and cons. Certain professions and puzzles can more easily be solved.

If you're gifted, you may be a big perfectionist, feel like you never do enough, and have a high energy that compels you to achieve more and get more done.

Gifted people don't always understand why other people don't think the same way, but surprisingly, they have a lot of empathy, unlike those in the autistic spectrum. They are sensitive to others' feelings and easily sense when something is going wrong.

A long focus, an inner motivation, and a self-regulating, independent work ethic are usually part of being gifted.

Gifted people analyze things to the core, which often helps them figure out things.

You might have a strong sense of justice, which can be really frustrating in a world where evil prevails in every corner.

If you're one of those people who cannot stop thinking and talks really fast when aligning his or her thoughts, this may be a sign of giftedness too. That fast thinking pace is a blessing when you are trying to make progress, but a curse if you're trying to sleep and your head is full of ideas.

These are only a few of the many topics discussed in this elaborate guide. There are examples, stories, and relatable explanations of what your brain might be like when you're gifted.

What School Could Be

Summary

Innovation expert Ted Dintersmith took an unprecedented trip across America, visiting all 50 states in a single school year. He originally set out to raise awareness about the urgent need to reimagine education to prepare students for a world marked by innovation, but America's teachers one-upped him. All across the country, he met teachers in ordinary settings doing extraordinary things, creating innovative classrooms where children learn deeply and joyously as they gain purpose, agency, and real knowledge. Together, these new ways of teaching and learning offer a vision of what school could be and a model for transforming schools throughout the United States and beyond. Better yet, teachers and parents don't have to wait for the revolution to come from above. They can readily implement small changes that can make a big difference. America's clock is ticking. Our archaic model of education trains our kids for a world that no longer exists, and accelerating advances in technology are eliminating millions of jobs. But the trailblazing of many American educators gives us reasons for hope. Capturing bold ideas from teachers and classrooms across America, What School Could Be provides a realistic, and profoundly optimistic, roadmap for creating cultures of innovation and real learning in all our schools. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Arguments: How to Persuade Others to Your Way of Thinking

Summary

Arguing has a bit of a bad rap in modern society, being seen as divisive and a source of conflict. When most people hear the word, they think of heated rows where voices are raised, accusations and names are thrown back and forth like missiles, no satisfactory conclusion is reached, and the parties arguing end up angry, hurt, further apart, and more dogmatically entrenched in their positions than before. This reputation isn't deserved - arguing is just another aspect of communication, one that allows an exchange of ideas and for issues to be resolved in order for things to move forward. This book is going to teach you how to overcome the obstacles that stand between you and succeeding in convincing others to your way of thinking. It will take a look at what arguing actually is in order to gain a better understanding of how to do it well and efficiently, tackle the prickly issue of just how ethical it is to persuade someone, and look at the different ways in which we fail in our arguments, both in winning and occasionally in reaching a decent resolution without devolving into fighting. It will also take an extensive look at logic, particularly how it is applied to construct valid and compelling arguments, and finally closes with 10 tips that will help you win your arguments. The section on logic takes up over half the book - logic is the cornerstone of a convincing argument, after all. This isn't a stuffy book that will give you dense theory with no connection to real life, though: Each entry includes a personal and professional example that you are likely to come across in real life. Along with the positive uses of logic, some ways in which the techniques discussed can be used in a dishonest way that takes advantage of how the human brain works are also included. There is a brief discussion of the ethics of using these techniques, but ultimately the power is given to you, the listener.

Debt Sentence

Summary

This audiobook exposes the exploitation and entrapment in Canada’s student loan system: a system that cripples or destroys the careers, health, and hopes of thousands, while lining the pockets of banks, collection agencies, and bureaucrats. It's a system where students are driven to abandon school for minimum-wage work, prostitution, or gambling to pay debts. Some have committed suicide to escape unrealistic payment schedules and conditions. This system harms not only students, but society. Graduates flee Canada with their knowledge and expertise to avoid bill collectors, “brain-draining” the economy. Perhaps, most alarming is the creation of a two-tiered education system favoring the wealthy and excluding the rest. This critique combines historical analysis, contemporary information, and students’ personal accounts to show how the system fails society and sentences Canada’s youth to a lifetime of debt. Most of what it shows to be true for Canada is also true in the US and the UK.

Boy Writers

Summary

Writing test scores indicate that boys have fallen far behind girls across the grades. In general, boys don't enjoy writing as much as girls. What's wrong? How can we do a better of job of creating "boy friendly" classrooms, so their voices can be heard?In Boy Writers: Reclaiming Their Voices, Ralph Fletcher draws upon his years of experience as staff developer, children's book author, and father of four boys. He also taps the insights from dozens of writing teachers around the U.S. and abroad. Boy Writers asks teachers to imagine the writing classroom from a boy's perspective, and consider specific steps we might take to create stimulating classrooms for boys.Topic choice emerges as a crucial issue. The subjects many boys like to write about (war, weapons, outlandish fiction, zany or bathroom humor) often do not get a warm reception from teachers. Ralph argues that we must "widen the circle" and give boys more choice if we want to engage them as writers. How? We must begin by recognizing boys and the world in which they live. Boy Writers explores important questions such as: What subjects are boy writers passionate about, and what motivates them as writers? Why do boys like to incorporate violence into their stories, and how much should be allowed? Why do we so often misread and misunderstand the humor boys include in their stories?Boy Writers does not advocate promoting the interests of boys at the expense of girls. Rather, it argues that developing sensitivity to the unique facets of boy writers will help teachers better address the needs of all their students.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

The PBL Playbook: A Step-by-Step Guide to Actually Doing Project-Based Learning

1 rating

Summary

There is something happening across the country and around the world right now. It's hidden in the planning sessions of colleagues, in the professional development opportunities at schools and conferences, and in the hallways as teachers and administrators talk with each other about their students.  It's been happening in pockets for so long that now, those groups of teachers and leaders are starting to bring in new teachers and new leaders to build a true culture of learning that looks and feels different.  It's taking shape as a revolution of sorts (but not some type of education reform) that is beginning to make its way into every school and every classroom. The textbooks are no longer "good enough", and the multiple-choice tests are no longer "good enough", and the lectures are no longer "good enough" for our kids.  We've seen what can happen when students are presented with a problem to solve, a challenge to overcome.  We've seen what can happen when students have learning experiences that are both relevant and meaningful to them as an individual and citizen.  We've seen what can happen when students own their learning, have a choice in the process and performance task, and get to choose how they can demonstrate understanding.  Project-based learning (PBL) is no longer relegated to gifted classrooms, honors classes, and exploratory specials. PBL is an active piece of the K-12 learning experience, found in every subject, in every grade level, and in every part of curricula and scope and sequences. PBL is taking over traditional finals and mid-terms as the performance task. It is showing up as how you teach the unit, instead of only an ending project to the unit.  PBL is growing because it engages and empowers students to learn experimentally and share that learning in new and unique ways that go well beyond the classroom. Yet, many teachers are asking: How do we plan and implement PBL? How do we "fit it in" our current curriculum? How do we assess it using our current grading guidelines? How do we manage this type of learning?  These are all real concerns and questions that cannot be dismissed. PBL takes time to plan, implement, manage, and assess. Then it takes time to tweak, improve, and highlight. In The PBL Playbook, we dive into specific answers to all those questions, and what PBL looks like in each grade level and subject area!  The PBL Playbook is right for you if:  You are a teacher ready to move toward an authentic learning experience for your students.  You are a superintendent, district administrator, or principal who is leading a school through project-based learning.  You are a coach, staff developer, or teacher leader who wants to help guide colleagues into PBL with a gameplan that works.

C. S. Lewis: An Apologist for Education

Summary

C. S. Lewis is widely recognized as one of the great apologists and writers of the 20th century. He is known for remarkable books such as Mere Christianity, Miracles, and The Problem of Pain. Lewis also wrote two fiction series that have enjoyed an enduring popularity: The Chronicles of Narnia and The Space Trilogy. In addition to all this, Lewis was a prescient observer of education and a thoughtful critic of modern educational theory and practice. In this brief audiobook, Lewis scholar Dr. Louis Markos surveys Lewis' thought on education as represented in books such as The Abolition of Man, An Experiment in Criticism, The Discarded Image, Collected Letters, and numerous other essays and publications. What emerges is a timely call to renew a radical liberal arts education that assumes a meaningful, purposeful cosmos and that will awaken students from the slumber of cold vulgarity and cultivate their affections for truth, goodness, and beauty.

Summary

Dr. Liker's book, Developing Lean Leaders at All Levels: A Practical Guide, was a 2016 winner of the Shingo Research and Professional Publication Award. We have taken the time to extract the individual seminars and lectures of Dr. Liker used to create this world-renowned publication and offer them in a series of byte-sized, topic specific learning modules. Follow along as we see and hear Dr. Liker at those actual presentations delivered firsthand to the students of Lean and Lean Practitioners.  Follow along as Dr. Liker explains the Lean Leadership Development Model (LLDM), and how it aligns with the accepted principles of operational excellence. Learn about the behaviors required to sustain it long-term. Understand how leadership must walk the talk of True North. Find out how to actively engage in developing lean leader skills.  Welcome to what may be the most important module in this course. I'll be talking about problem-solving and a way of visually representing problem-solving. You may have heard this referred to as "A3 reporting" or "A3 storytelling". I will be referring to it as "A3 thinking"; that is, it's a way of thinking rather than documenting problem-solving on a piece of paper.  This is the most important module because in the Toyota Way, problem-solving drives continuous improvement and showing respect for people. Problem-solving is the core skill of a lean leader and it is the skill most leaders lack.  You'll see as we go through this module that the Toyota Way of problem-solving and the method I talk about in my books is different from what you might think. Join us on our journey.

The Central Park Statues Speak: Vol I

Summary

On average, 35 million people visit Central Park each year. Many pass by the statues, plaques, and benches and wonder who those people were. They read the plaques, but there is more to the stories than just what the plaques state. I created this historical fiction series so that listeners could learn the compelling life stories of these honorees. Like Alexa or Siri, or a historical re-enactor, the statues recall their contributions to society lest we forget.  In volume one, four high school students converse with and confront AI- and IT-enabled Central Park statues about their past. The students question Balto as to why there is a statue of him, and Togo, the true hero of the Race of Mercy, doesn’t. Robbie Burns and Sir Thomas Moore are asked to explain why, if they were such good writers, did they die penniless. The teenagers listen to Fitz-Greene Halleck lament that he is the least known of the statues in Central Park. Shakespeare must defend the authorship of his plays and poems. Finally, the researchers probe Sojourner Truth about her uneasy relationship with the suffragettes.  In this nine-volume series, a total of 31 statues, five benches, three plaques, two tree markers, two fountains, one stone mosaic, and one obelisk are interviewed by the teenage researchers. Enjoy listening to their stories.

Stress Relief, Networking, and Advocacy for the Puzzled Parent

Summary

Stress Relief, Networking, and Advocacy for the Puzzled Parent offers some great insight into the world of stress that comes with being a parent or caregiver to a child with autism. It also covers the stress that the child goes through. This book is extremely raw and real - diving head on into the hard pressed topics of communication, self-guilt, bullying, and parent-shaming. It reveals the real-life struggles endured and how to navigate through them by offering insightful tips on how to handle paperwork, how to appeal denials and fight the fight, how to advocate and network with people who empathize, how to establish a solid routine, and all sorts of stuff that's meant to educate and empower. 

Powerful therapies that are often overlooked are discussed as well, including: Music therapy (Goes into detail about "sensorimotor integrative treatment" and how one special songwriter is healing my sons soul by the day), Equine therapy (have you ever heard of a therapy rooster? You're about to!), and Theater games (mind-blowing communication icebreaker that has been a game changer for my non-verbal son big time!). I poured my entire heart into this book, and I CAN'T WAIT to release it to the world!

Escola Partida [Departure School]

Summary

O polêmico movimento Escola sem Partido começou em 2003 como uma organização informal preocupada com “a contaminação político-ideológica das escolas” e o “abuso da liberdade de ensinar”. O movimento cresceu, ganhou adeptos incondicionais e adversários ferrenhos. Porém, mais importante do que evocar adjetivos apaixonados é ampliar o debate sobre a ética profissional docente: o que professores podem e devem fazer na sala de aula? Como devem compreender o compromisso do currículo escolar com as questões sensíveis do mundo da vida da criança e do jovem e com os valores e ideais seculares de tolerância, respeito e justiça? Neste audiolivro, Ronai Rocha traz uma profunda reflexão sobre o tema, partindo de seus 40 anos de docência em cursos de formação de professores.

Christian Thinking

Summary

Christian Thinking is one of the greatest literary threats to the theory of evolution ever written. It is also one of the greatest threats to centuries old religious dogma that has suppressed the light of truth by means of pagan teachings that have sickened modern-day society with its falsehood, hypocrisy, and clear bias. This book is designed to open your mind, not tell you how or what to think. You listen. You reason. You decide. In doing so, you will see for yourself - without prejudice or rhetoric - that today's conventional theology is primarily based on tradition and religious bias in translation, not enlightened truth. Now, after centuries of preconceived ideas, anyone can see for themselves the biblical truths to set them free! This will be the dawn of a spiritual awakening and true liberation for many. Don’t be afraid to explore the truth. Embrace it! In a world of spiritual indigestion, where people are being fed unhealthy ideas and no longer know what information is worth assimilating or why it is still important to know biblical truth, each Christian must be able to reason for himself so that he or she can choose to digest spiritual truths, become spiritually healthy, and learn to thrive in a world where past beliefs had made them ill. Listen and see for yourself what Christian Thinking can do for you! Christian Thinking is truly for thinking Christians who love truth and desire to be solid in their faith.

Dementia occurs when the brain cells stop working as they should, affecting the person's ability to think, remember, and communicate.

The Death and Life of the Great American School System

Summary

In this best-selling expose of national policy gone wrong, America's foremost historian of education, Diane Ravitch, renounces her support for reform policies implemented over the past decade that she says are wrecking America's cherished tradition of public education. Strategies like accountability schemes based on questionable standardized tests, merit pay for teachers based on gains on the same unreliable tests, vouchers, and charter schools have been oversold as solutions for our educational problems. Policymakers pushing a market model of reform and charter schools are on the wrong track, ignoring classroom realities. The more they push these policies, Ravitch says, the more they will harm our nation's school system and undermine the quality of education. The bipartisan No Child Left Behind program ("NCLB") implemented with a heavy political hand nationwide, has failed to improve education. It has turned our schools into testing factories to train children how to take standardized tests instead of giving them the knowledge and skills that are necessary components of a good education. The federal "sanctions" and "remedies" now mandated nationwide have unfairly stigmatized thousands of schools, putting them at risk of being closed and privatized. The "miracles" touted by districts under the new policies vanish on close examination. Test scores in many states and districts are inflated by statistical game-playing and lowered standards. The over-emphasis on testing has all but eliminated the essential elements of a solid education, including history, civics, science, the arts, geography, literature, physical education, health education, and foreign languages. Privatization and deregulation has led predictably to some good and some bad but, on average, charters do not get better results than regular public schools-just new federal subsidies. Teacher evaluation by student test scores is a deeply flawed approach to hiring and job tenure that is driving good teachers out of public education. The future of public education is at stake. A democratic society needs a healthy, vibrant public education system with good public schools in every neighborhood. On our current course, the schools will be privatized, deregulated, and turned over to entrepreneurs. Based on a careful review of the evidence, Ravitch says that this course of action is unlikely to improve American education.

Resonance in Singing and Speaking

Summary

Resonance in Singing and Speaking is a classic voice instruction guide by Thomas Fillebrown. Efforts to develop my own voice and the voices of my patients after operations for cleft palate, aided by anatomical study, resulted in a plan for the focusing and development of the human voice quite different from any other yet published or, so far as I know, yet proposed. This plan has proved so successful in my later life that I feel emboldened to offer it as a voice guide for the consideration of speakers and singers.

Accelerated Learning - Advanced Technique for Fast Learning

Summary

Accelerated learning is an advanced learning approach that is used in many organizations today, including learning institutions and corporate entities. It is research-based, and includes a variety of media and techniques. As opposed to the traditional laid-back learning approaches where the student assumes a passive role and the trainer actively pushes knowledge his way, accelerated learning is more flexible and open. It ensures that every learner is totally involved. It brings in energy and re-humanizes the learning process making it more enjoyable and productive. Accelerated learning methods vary greatly with respect to the structure of the organization, the subject matter in question, and the learners. In the words of Jacques Barzun, "Teaching is not application of a system but rather an exercise in perpetual discretion." The main aim of a learning process is not the method used but rather the results that it gives. Accelerated learning scores highly in this regard. Hundreds of organizations all over the world have embraced accelerated learning, and the number of those that are joining in is rising by day. This is because people have discovered that accelerated learning uses proven techniques that enable them to design programs faster, improve measurable learning, and enhance the productivity and creativity of employees. In order to be successful in accelerated learning, you need both a skeptical approach and an open mind. Healthy skepticism will enable you to rethink your assumptions to learning and at the same time enable you to maintain a balanced head even as you crunch the dazzling techniques and methods in the accelerated learning process. Openness, on the other hand, will help you to appreciate that learning is a continual process - and no one has seen it all. New possibilities are always knocking at your door, and it is up to you to respond with an open mind.

Summary

Practical tips and advice for parents navigating the school system from a mom who’s been there. One in five children have dyslexia, but too many parents feel isolated and defeated in their efforts to secure an equal chance for their children. After fighting the school system for four years to get the correct diagnoses and proper learning assistance for her two dyslexic sons, Micki Boas realized that parents need to hack the system, cutting through the invisible red tape of school funding, IEPs, specialized teacher training, and more. Drawing on insights from more than 200 parents, educators, and experts, Boas delves into:  When children need to be diagnosed to get the help they need - and why it doesn’t always happen  What special education programs are mandated by law - and why most schools fail to provide them  What parents can do to advocate for their children - and help change the larger system  One in Five shares the secrets the “professionals” won’t tell you - but that makes all the difference.

Wired for Story

Summary

Imagine knowing what the brain craves from every tale it encounters, what fuels the success of any great story, and what keeps people transfixed. Wired for Story reveals these cognitive secrets - and it's a game-changer for anyone who has ever set pen to paper. The vast majority of writing advice focuses on "writing well" as if it were the same as telling a great story. This is exactly where many aspiring writers fail - they strive for beautiful metaphors, authentic dialogue, and interesting characters, losing sight of the one thing that every engaging story must do: ignite the brain's hardwired desire to learn what happens next. When writers tap into the evolutionary purpose of story and electrify our curiosity, it triggers a delicious dopamine rush that tells us to pay attention. Without it, even the most perfect prose won't hold anyone's interest. Backed by recent breakthroughs in neuroscience as well as examples from novels, screenplays, and short stories, Wired for Story offers a revolutionary look at story as the brain experiences it. Each chapter zeroes in on an aspect of the brain, its corresponding revelation about story, and the way to apply it to your storytelling right now.

How to Write Best-Selling Fiction

Summary

Most people think the way to write a best seller is to have a lot of talent and even more luck. As you will learn, there is a recipe for success, and luck may be the least important ingredient in creating a best seller.  When it comes to solving the mystery of what makes a best-selling novel, no one has cracked the code better than James Scott Bell. A best-selling author himself, winner of the International Thriller Writers Award and the Christy Award for Suspense, plus the author of the number-one best seller for writers, Plot & Structure, Mr. Bell has been teaching the principles of best-selling fiction for over 20 years, principles that apply to any genre or style.  In the 24 lectures of How to Write Best-Selling Fiction, Mr. Bell provides a comprehensive, eye-opening, and illuminating survey of the entire writing process, as well as a full breakdown of how best-selling authors such as Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Michael Connelly, Suzanne Collins, Janet Evanovich, and dozens of others have implemented best practices in their own writing.  From fun creative challenges to help you get started with unique plot and character ideas to how to format, package, and promote your finished material - with help dotting every "i" and crossing every "t" along the way - Mr. Bell offers an insightful, intimate, and extraordinarily revealing look at the elements that elevate a novel to become a best seller. Any aspiring author will gain a wealth of tools that will not only improve their ability to write, but will also increase their enjoyment of the craft.  The famous writer Somerset Maugham once said, “There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.” And maybe no one knows the “rules”, but there are writing techniques, practices, and fundamentals that writers have used for decades to become best-selling authors. And just like Picasso, once you master the basics of your art, then you can create your own rules. With How to Write Best-Selling Fiction, you get an intimate introduction to the fundamentals of how to write your best seller, from a best-selling author who has mastered the secrets to success.  PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Summary

What is the Story Grid? The Story Grid is a tool developed by editor Shawn Coyne to analyze stories and provide helpful editorial comments. It's like a CT Scan that takes a photo of the global story and tells the editor or writer what is working, what is not, and what must be done to make what works better and fix what's not. The Story Grid breaks down the component parts of stories to identify the problems. And finding the problems in a story is almost as difficult as the writing of the story itself (maybe even more difficult). The Story Grid is a tool with many applications: It will tell a writer if a story "works" or "doesn't work". It pinpoints story problems but does not emotionally abuse the writer, revealing exactly where a story (not the person creating the story) has failed. It will tell the writer the specific work necessary to fix that story's problems. It is a tool to re-envision and resuscitate a seemingly irredeemable pile of paper stuck in an attic drawer. It is a tool that can inspire an original creation. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Romancing the Beat: Story Structure for Romance Novels

7 ratings

Summary

What makes a romance novel a romance? How do you write a kissing book? Writing a well-structured romance isn't the same as writing any other genre - something the popular novel and screenwriting guides don't address. The romance arc is made up of its own story beats, and the external plot and theme need to be braided to the romance arc - not the other way around. Told in conversational (and often irreverent) prose, Romancing the Beat is like sitting down to coffee with romance editor and author Gwen Hayes while she explains story structure - the way she does with her clients, some of whom are regular inhabitants of the New York Times and USA Today best-seller lists. Romancing the Beat is a recipe, not a rigid system. The beats don't care if you plot or outline before you write, or if you pants your way through the drafts and do a "beat check" when you're revising. Pantsers and plotters are both welcome. So sit down, grab a cuppa, and let's talk about kissing books.

Summary

What are story grid beats? We think about the story creation process (writing) as one big “problem”.   You simply want to travel from where you are right now (without a story that works) to a place where your story takes on a life of its own. It works. We submit to you that the practical way to unpack that very big problem is by breaking it into smaller, more easily solvable units.   Just as performers break down acting challenges into moment-to-moment micro-actions they call beats, so do Story Grid Beat audiobooks break your story problems into specific high-resolution mini-puzzles.  They’re like global positioning system reports for when you find yourself lost on your author’s journey. And once they clearly define the problem at hand, they offer procedural advice about how best to reframe your approach and solve it in your own unique way.  After all, you can’t begin to solve a problem until you clearly know what it is.  You are not the problem. The problems are the problem.

Summary

Do you want to give the readers such a vivid experience that they feel the events of the story are real and they're right there? Do you want them to forget their own world and worries, and live in the main character's head and heart? The magic wand for achieving this is Deep Point of View. Readers love it, because it gives them the thrill of becoming a different person. The reader doesn't just read a story about a gladiator in the arena, an heiress in a Scottish castle, an explorer in the jungle, a courtesan in Renaissance Venice - she becomes that gladiator, heiress, explorer, or courtesan. In this book, I'll reveal the powerful techniques employed by best-selling authors, and I'll show you how to apply them to rivet your readers. I'll start with the basics of Point of View - if you're already familiar with the concept, you can treat them as a refresher - and then guide you to advanced strategies for taking your reader deep. This is not a beginners' book. It assumes that you have mastered the basics of the writer's craft and know how to create compelling fictional characters. If you like, you can use this book as a self-study class, approaching each chapter as a lesson and completing the assignments at the end of each session.

Ernest Hemingway on Writing

5 ratings

Summary

An assemblage of reflections on the nature of writing and the writer from one the greatest American writers of the 20th century.

Throughout Hemingway’s career as a writer, he maintained that it was bad luck to talk about writing - that it takes off “whatever butterflies have on their wings and the arrangement of hawk’s feathers if you show it or talk about it”. 

Despite this belief, by the end of his life he had done just what he intended not to do. In his novels and stories, in letters to editors, friends, fellow artists, and critics, in interviews and in commissioned articles on the subject, Hemingway wrote often about writing. And he wrote as well and as incisively about the subject as any writer who ever lived....

This book contains Hemingway’s reflections on the nature of the writer and on elements of the writer’s life, including specific and helpful advice to writers on the craft of writing, work habits, and discipline. The Hemingway personality comes through in general wisdom, wit, humor, and insight, and in his insistence on the integrity of the writer and of the profession itself. (From the Preface by Larry W. Phillips)

Summary

There are more outlets than ever for writers to spread their messages and share their work, more opportunities to speak out and be seen. Writers expose themselves freely and willingly in a way that would have been unfathomable 50 years ago, and more people than ever are writing and publishing. Men and women are writing with equal fervor and commitment to their message and craft. As a result, it’s easy to assume, or hope, that the gendered playing field is a thing of the past, too. Unfortunately for women writers, it’s not. Knowing what we’re up against and how to fight back is the heart and soul of Write On, Sisters! Inside, Brooke Warner draws upon research, anecdotes, and her personal experiences from 20 years in the book publishing industry to show how women’s writing is discounted or less valued than men’s writing, then provides support to overcome these challenges. This audiobook also shines light on how women writers face not only ever-present historical and social challenges but also their own self-limiting beliefs. Write On, Sisters! is for every woman writer ready to be done with all that, and who’s ready for the next revolution.
