As the 21st century ushers in the era of Common Core State Standards, the goal of teaching expands from a basic transmission of facts to the development of cognitive skills that equip students to achieve more of their unique potential. This seminal book focuses on five essential concepts from neuroeducation that should underlie all teaching decisions: (1) neuroplasticity, findings that the structure and function of the brain change in response to learning; (2) potential, the capacity for all students to make learning gains; (3) malleable intelligence, which stands in opposition to traditional views of fixed intellect; (4) the Body-Brain System, the role of physical fitness, healthy nutrition, and positive emotions in facilitating learning; and (5) metacognition, teaching students to think about their thinking. To support classroom implementation, these discussions include vignettes, examples, teaching strategies, reflective questions, and connections between brain-based learning principles and the Common Core. The text concludes by unmasking myths and misconceptions that may obscure these core concepts.

Why should children learn to write fluently? What difference will it make to them and the opportunities available to them later on in life? The ability to communicate clearly, accurately and persuasively is a vital life skill. Deficiencies in motivation and thinking skills pervade the challenge of improving children's literacy levels. Get Them Thinking Like Writers! combines practical activities to help children aged 7-11 develop their writing skills, with insights into the attitude that experienced writers apply to their craft. The activities explore different working methods - such as how authors tap into and develop their creativity and how they deal with 'writer's block' - and are supported by strategies for thinking that will develop children's literacy and the way they use language to express their opinions in all subject areas. Steve Bowkett, author, storyteller and education consultant, provides the key concepts and learning benefits of each strategy, along with a series of activities, extension ideas and useful links.

What do you see when you think of teacher? Where does what you see come from? This is a book about the images of teachers and teaching which permeate the everyday lives of children and adults, shaping in important but unrecognised ways their notions of whom teachers are and what they do. The authors show how, using a creative interdisciplinary approach, it is possible to analyse drawings of teachers, television programmes, films, cartooons, comics and even Barbie dolls. Illustrated with colour reproductions and excerpts from interviews and journals, this book should appeal to teachers, academics and anyone who is interested in the popular culture of childhood, gender issues, professional identity and teacher education.
