The book is compact without being dense, and takes the reader through a guided tour of the soft skills domain. It is an interesting and informative excursion. Given the importance of the subject matter of this book to learn more about academic topics as well as life skills through some leading questions, through these academic knowledge and soft skills, and given the orderly and stimulating manner in which the subject has been presented, it can be predicted that the book would see several reprints in the years to come. I recommend this book to people who could use any of the principles and concepts to teach the Math and Science curriculum and to reinforce the soft skills both in the classroom and outside of it. It is also a great book to people who have fun in teaching while picking up new concepts in academic knowledge and soft skills.” Dr Nugroho J Setiadi Head of Institute for Research and Community Services Widyatama University Bundung, West Java Indonesia “This book uses the concepts of Math and Science to instill into the minds of young inquirers. The games created in this book, is also a valuable tool for Team Development in an Outdoor Experimental Laboratory. It helps to create the good leadership styles, teamwork and interpersonal skills, which are sought after by many business corporations of today. It is a simple approach but practical, to reduce the complexity of the human interactions in a corporation. This is another way towards Team Change Management.” Dr Richard Ng Management Professor University of the Philippines “Henri-Frédéric Amie, the Swiss philosopher, poet and criticm, once said that “Man becomes man only by his intelligence, but he is man only by his heart”. We can be the most intelligent person in the world, but it is the matters of the heart that makes us truly human. Knowledge of Science and Math, the traditional “brain” subjects, are undoubtedly essential in today's technological age but life consists of more than one dimension. The world, more and more, is crying out not just for clever men and women but also for those with true character in their hearts. This book has seized upon a brilliant idea of integrating the teaching of Science and Math with elements of emotional and social education, by exploring themes like honesty, teamwork, flexibility. The fun and interesting games, elegantly simple but enormously effective, will certainly open the eyes of the students to see Science and Math with a new perspective on how the various aspects of the total human experience are interrelated. Fellow teachers will find this most useful. And it is a book I wish my own teachers had when I was a student!” Mr Chen Khin Wee Associate Faculty, School of Art and Social Sciences SIM University, Singapore “What a refreshing way to look at Maths and Science! Games can bring just enduring understanding in abstract mathematical and scientific concepts and they help every learner experience and learn them through an innovatively kinaesthetic way. The author has also ingenuously connect these games to character building and leadership principles. Brilliant! Now we have mathematical and scientific thinking and reasoning brought into more authentic contexts and the child benefits a multitude of ways. I commend this book as a unique resource for any classroom and learning context.” Mrs Corinne Sim Vice Principal Methodist Girls' School, Singapore “This amazing new book sets forth interesting games that will increase your science and math skills. Whether you're training to become a group leader, are a science teacher or student, an organizer of a nerd party, or simply a curious bystander. This book encourages people to learn, practice science, and have fun at the same time. I can't wait for my kids to be big enough to try it out with them.” Dr Matjaž Kuntner Scientific Research Centre Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Slovenia “It gives an opportunity to school teachers to take some of these games and fully experiment them in their different aspects: playful, science learning, and developing aptitudes. ” European Mathematical Society

Banish math anxiety and give students of all ages a clear roadmap to success Mathematical Mindsets provides practical strategies and activities to help teachers and parents show all children, even those who are convinced that they are bad at math, that they can enjoy and succeed in math. Jo Boaler—Stanford researcher, professor of math education, and expert on math learning—has studied why students don't like math and often fail in math classes. She's followed thousands of students through middle and high schools to study how they learn and to find the most effective ways to unleash the math potential in all students. There is a clear gap between what research has shown to work in teaching math and what happens in schools and at home. This book bridges that gap by turning research findings into practical activities and advice. Boaler translates Carol Dweck's concept of 'mindset' into math teaching and parenting strategies, showing how students can go from self-doubt to strong self-confidence, which is so important to math learning. Boaler reveals the steps that must be taken by schools and parents to improve math education for all. Mathematical Mindsets: Explains how the brain processes mathematics learning Reveals how to turn mistakes and struggles into valuable learning experiences Provides examples of rich mathematical activities to replace rote learning Explains ways to give students a positive math mindset Gives examples of how assessment and grading policies need to change to support real understanding Scores of students hate and fear math, so they end up leaving school without an understanding of basic mathematical concepts. Their evasion and departure hinders math-related pathways and STEM career opportunities. Research has shown very clear methods to change this phenomena, but the information has been confined to research journals—until now. Mathematical Mindsets provides a proven, practical roadmap to mathematics success for any student at any age.

In this new edition of their groundbreaking book Strategies That Work, Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis share the work and thinking they've done since the second edition came out a decade ago and offer new perspectives on how to explicitly teach thinking strategies so that students become engaged, thoughtful, independent readers. Thirty new lessons and new and revised chapters shine a light on children's thinking, curiosity, and questions. Steph and Anne tackle close reading, close listening, text complexity, and critical thinking in a new chapter on building knowledge through thinking-intensive reading and learning. Other fully revised chapters focus on digital reading, strategies for integrating comprehension and technology, and comprehension across the curriculum. The new edition is organized around three sections: Part I provides readers with a solid introduction to reading comprehension instruction, including the principles that guide practice, suggestions for text selection, and a review of recent research that underlies comprehension instruction. Part II contains lessons to put these principles into practice for all areas of reading comprehension. Part III shows you how to integrate comprehension instruction across the curriculum and the school day, particularly in science and social studies. Updated bibliographies, including the popular "Great Books for Teaching Content," are accessible online. Since the first publication of Strategies That Work, more than a million teachers have benefited from Steph and Anne's practical advice on creating classrooms that are incubators for deep thought. This third edition is a must-have resource for a generation of new teachers--and a welcome refresher for those with dog-eared copies of this timeless guide to teaching comprehension.

Is homework an essential component of rigorous schooling or a harmful practice that alienates and discourages a significant number of students? The debate over homework has gone on for decades, but schools and families have changed in many ways, and, as author Cathy Vatterott notes, "There's a growing suspicion that something is wrong with homework." Rethinking Homework: Best Practices That Support Diverse Needs examines the role homework has played in the culture of schooling over the years; how such factors as family life, the media, and the "balance movement" have affected the homework controversy; and what research--and educators' common sense--tells us about the effects of homework on student learning. The best way to address the pro- and anti-homework controversy is not to eliminate homework. Instead, the author urges educators to replace the "old paradigm" (characterized by longstanding cultural beliefs, moralistic views, the puritan work ethic, and behaviorist philosophy) with a "new paradigm" based on the following elements: * Designing quality homework tasks; * Differentiating homework tasks; * Deemphasizing grading of homework; * Improving homework completion; and * Implementing homework strategies and support programs. Numerous examples from teachers and schools that have revised their practices and policies for homework illustrate the new paradigm in action. The end product is homework that works--for all students, at all levels.
