READING: From the New York Times best-selling author of How Children Succeed, an essential handbook of “informative and effective methods to help children overcome issues and thrive at home and in school”*—now including sixteen new infographics! In How Children Succeed, Paul Tough introduced us to research showing that personal qualities like perseverance, self-control, and conscientiousness play a critical role in children’s success. Now, in Helping Children Succeed, Tough takes on a new set of pressing questions: What does growing up in poverty do to children’s mental and physical development? How does adversity at home affect their success in the classroom, from preschool to high school? And what practical steps can the adults who are responsible for them take to improve their chances for a positive future? Tough once again encourages us to think in a new way about the challenges of childhood. Mining the latest research in psychology and neuroscience, he provides us with insights and strategies for a new approach to childhood adversity, one designed to help many more children succeed. * (Kirkus Reviews)

READING: Een baanbrekend boek dat ons op een heel andere manier laat kijken naar opvoeding en onderwijs. Wat bepaalt of je slaagt in het leven? Heel lang dacht men dat intelligentie de doorslaggevende factor was. Een hoog IQ en goede cijfers op school zouden kinderen de grootste slagingskans geven. Maar Paul Tough laat zien dat vaardigheden als doorzettingsvermogen, nieuwsgierigheid, optimisme en zelfbeheersing de basis vormen voor een geslaagd leven. Tough vertelt de verhalen van onderwijzers en onderzoekers die met vallen en opstaan ontdekken hoe we onze kinderen kunnen helpen deze vaardigheden te ontwikkelen. Wat blijkt? Een sterk karakter valt aan te leren.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Wat moet íedereen in de moderne wereld weten? Om antwoord te geven op deze moeilijkste vraag der vragen combineert de gerenommeerde psycholoog Jordan B. Peterson de zwaarbevochten waarheden van oude tradities met verbluffende ontdekkingen van grensverleggend wetenschappelijk onderzoek. Op humoristische, verrassende en informatieve wijze vertelt Jordan Peterson ons waarom kinderen die aan het skateboarden zijn met rust gelaten moeten worden, welk verschrikkelijk noodlot mensen die te snel oordelen te wachten staat, en waarom je altijd een kat moet aaien als je er een tegenkomt. Peterson legt grote verbanden en distilleert daarbij uit alle kennis van de wereld 12 praktische en fundamentele leefregels. In 12 regels voor het leven maakt Jordan Peterson korte metten met de moderne clichés van wetenschap, geloof en de menselijke natuur, en tegelijkertijd transformeert en verrijkt hij de denkwijze van zijn lezers. Dr. Jordan B. Peterson (1962) is psycholoog, cultuurcriticus en hoogleraar psychologie aan de Universiteit van Toronto. Zijn wetenschappelijke artikelen hebben de moderne kijk op persoonlijkheid en creativiteit voorgoed veranderd. Peterson heeft honderdduizenden volgers op social media en zijn YouTube-clips zijn meer dan 27 miljoen keer bekeken. 'Peterson is vandaag de dag de invloedrijkste intellectueel van de westerse wereld. Voor miljoenen jonge mannen blijkt de methode-Peterson het perfecte tegengif voor de mengeling van knuffelen en beschuldigen waarin ze zijn grootgebracht.' - DAVID BROOKS, THE NEW YORK TIMES 'Hoewel ik in veel opzichten met Peterson van mening verschil, ben ik het hartgrondig eens met zijn nadruk op het zorgvuldig, zonder vooroordelen bekijken van grote maatschappelijke en persoonlijke kwesties om daar rationele, weloverwogen oplossingen voor te vinden. Dit boek staat er vol mee.' - LOUISE O. FRESCO 'Peterson stapt als een magiër door de ideeëngeschiedenis van het Westen, en hij maakt alles urgent, en stralend. Ja, er zijn regels voor het leven, met moeite gedistilleerd in de wildernis van het bestaan, gevoed met klassieke waarden en inzichten die de tand des tijds doorstaan, als wij volharden. Peterson is momenteel de belangrijkste "praktische" intellectueel.' - LEON DE WINTER 'Peterson is een genie op vele vlakken. 12 regels voor het leven is een groot, controversieel, ontnuchterend boek.' - THE TIMES 'Peterson is geen gebrek aan empathie te verwijten. Hij is als een vaderfiguur.' - TROUW

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The whole concept that author and educator William F. Russell, Ed.D., calls “Family Learning” centers on the fact that children spend only 13% of their waking hours between birth and age 18 in school. What sense does it make to confine all their learning to that narrow sliver of life? Family Learning: How to Help Your Children Succeed in School by Learning at Home offers practical, simple activities that parents can do with their children (grades K-8) to help them understand school concepts by using them in real-world applications. These “learning adventures,” as Dr. Russell calls them, can be done in the kitchen, in the backyard, in the car, on weekends, on holidays, on vacations—wherever and whenever parents and children can find joy in discovering a new piece of learning together. Through these family-centered, out-of-school learning activities, children understand that opportunities for learning are all around them, all the time, no matter where they live or what they happen to be studying in school at the time. Parents can play a powerful role in encouraging this “learning attitude,” which will benefit their children both in school and in life. And it is this attitude toward continual learning that children will take with them into their adult lives, into their careers, and into the families that they themselves create. “Family Learning” is an idea that can become a part of every family, no matter what the family’s income or educational level may be. Decades of clear and consistent research have shown that the activities that are customary in everyday family life are the surest predictor of a child’s success in school. Dr. Russell’s Family Learning book provides parents with a way to begin playing a more-active role in their children’s learning by using whatever time they have available to share fun, time-tested activities that are geared specifically to their child’s interest and level of learning. “What I call ‘Family Learning,’” Dr. Russell explains, “is not just school work at home, but rather, an enjoyable way for families to grow together, as parents and children each grow individually.” Family Learning: How to Help Your Children Succeed in School by Learning at Home identifies hundreds of library books (all with Dewey classifications) and other free or inexpensive learning resources, and it provides over a hundred web links to videos that help parents explain and demonstrate concepts in all school subjects including character development. Family Learning also provides a model that parents, teachers, and community leaders can use to expand learning opportunities—and learning in general—throughout any school district or community.

READING: -Develop new instructional strategies that lead to positive growth in young people. -Blend instruction options to take the physical activity experience to another level. -Move toward a coordinated school health approach. -Provide 136 teacher-tested, developmentally appropriate, fun, and creative activities to foster a love of physical activity. Teachers want their students to be successful--not just in the classroom, but throughout their lives as well. Through PE Connections: Helping Kids Succeed Through Physical Activity, teachers can provide the experiences that help students succeed in a much broader sense than is usually associated with a physical education class. PE Connectionsaccomplishes this by offering teachers and after-school care providers three instructional approaches that expand the definition of student success: teaching quality physical education, building social and personal competencies through developmental assets, and creating the foundation for a coordinated school health program. The activities in the book are the integration of physical activity, development of social competencies, and health strategies. This multifaceted text -offers traditional teaching of movement patterns, fitness concepts, and social interaction skills; -provides 136 fun physical activities that meet the movement skill, fitness, and social competency objectives as outlined in NASPE standards 5 and 6; and -goes beyond the standards by exposing students to success-building strategies not normally offered in physical education classes. Some of the activities offer suggestions to encourage the partnering of parents, schools, and community organizations to provide the supportive environment that children need for healthy development. Others provide asset-building tools that either reinforce or build a particular asset or life skill, such as peaceful conflict resolution, personal power, and self-esteem. The result is a unique book that fosters a love of physical activity and spurs personal growth. PE Connectionsalso -groups activities by equipment type and suggests creative ideas for using existing equipment, -offers modifications for the activities; and -provides an appendix that helps teachers modify lessons for students with physical disabilities. PE Connectionscomes with easy-to-reproduce flash card masters and exercise pictures, an activity finder chart, and tips and guidelines for developing or improving coordinated school health programming. In addition, for each activity it lists specific developmental assets or teaching tips for developing the whole child. With its fresh approach, creative activities, and focus on building successful experiences, PE Connectionssheds new light on what it means to be successful in physical activity settings.

ISBN 9789044975734
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Waarom hebben getalenteerde mensen vaak moeite om hun doelen te bereiken terwijl minder begaafde individuen soms zonder slag of stoot verbazingwekkende prestaties leveren? Op basis van haar eigen verhaal als dochter van een wetenschapper die zich vaak beklaagde over haar vermeende gebrek aan intelligentie, beschrijft Angela Duckworth haar loopbaan door het onderwijs, de consultancybusiness en de neurowetenschap. Het leidde tot de hypothese dat werkelijk succes vooral ontstaat door een speciale mix van volledige overgave en de vastberadenheid om te werken aan je langetermijndoelen: grit. In dit boek doet Duckworth, winnaar van de prestigieuze MacArthur Genius Award, haar theorie uit de doeken en helpt ze iedereen om aan de hand van zes kernwaarden hun eigen grit-factor te bepalen: hoop, inspanning, precisie, passie, rituelen en prioriteiten. Grit gaat voorbij aan clichés als ‘succes is vooral hard werken’ en biedt een frisse en motiverende manier om zelf ongekende resultaten te behalen.

Many students cannot correctly apply computational algorithms to solve problems. Their understanding and use of decimals and fractions are especially weak.

Helping Children Learn Mathematics provides comprehensive and reliable information that will guide efforts to improve school mathematics from pre--kindergarten through eighth grade. The authors explain the five strands of mathematical proficiency and discuss the major changes that need to be made in mathematics instruction, instructional materials, assessments, teacher education, and the broader educational system and answers some of the frequently asked questions when it comes to mathematics instruction. The book concludes by providing recommended actions for parents and caregivers, teachers, administrators, and policy makers, stressing the importance that everyone work together to ensure a mathematically literate society.
