    Beyond the Classroom

    SKU: 1787


    Drawing on a nationwide survey encompassing all ethnic and socioeconomic groups, Beyond the Classroom identifies the real nature of the education crisis in America. The results of author Laurence Steinberg's nationwide study, presented here in jargon-free, accessible language, indicate a widespread peer culture that demeans adolescents who are seriously engaged in their schooling and indifference on the part of parents to their children's academic achievement. Taking issue with school reform, Steinberg offers a different perspective where remedy will be found not in schools but in students' lives outside of school and in changed social and parental attitudes. 224 pages Learn More
  6. Character Matters

    Character Matters

    SKU: 2562


    By R.E. Myers. "If life is a game, what are the rules of life? Is there a winner?" Comprising more than 40 lessons based on reproducible handouts, this book of discussion starters presents anecdotes and debatable assertions, then follows up with open-ended questions. Many of the situations are mysterious, many of the questions intriguing, and only a few of the lessons can be resolved into clear-cut cases of right or wrong. The purpose is to prod students into actively exploring their personal, social, and community values. Many of the topics focus on everyday life at home and school (such as cheating, bullies, substitute teachers, responsibility to a team), while others begin with abstractions (giving and receiving, taking responsibility, intervening, controlling) but bring the abstractions to life by asking provocative questions. Grades 6–8. Illustrated. 8" x 10". Good Year. 128 pages. Learn More

  8. College Knowledge

    College Knowledge

    SKU: 4672


    "College Knowledge: What It Really Takes for Students to Succeed and What We Can Do to Get Them Ready." Although more and more students have the test scores and transcripts to get into college, far too many are struggling once they get there. These students are surprised to find that college coursework demands so much more of them than high school. For the first time, they are asked to think deeply, write extensively, document assertions, solve non-routine problems, apply concepts, and accept unvarnished critiques of their work. College Knowledge confronts this problem by looking at the disconnect between what high schools do and what colleges expect and proposes a solution by identifying what students need to know and be able to do in order to succeed. The book is based on an extensive three-year project sponsored by the Association of American Universities in partnership with The Pew Charitable Trusts. This landmark research identified what it takes to succeed in entry-level university courses. Based on the project's findings - and interviews with students, faculty, and staff - this groundbreaking book delineates the cognitive skills and subject area knowledge that college-bound students need to master in order to succeed in today's colleges and universities. These Standards for Success cover the major subject areas of English, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, second languages, and the arts. Softcover. 384 pages. Learn More
