Overcoming Student Apathy: Motivating Students for Academic Success

Overcoming Student Apathy: Motivating Students for Academic Success by Jeff C. MarshallOvercoming Student Apathy guides the reader toward success with the disenfranchised, the downtrodden, the devalued, and the demoralized. Eight archetypes are used in narrative form to represent the various forms that apathy assumes in our classrooms (e.g., The Rebel, The Downtrodden, The Invisible). Teachers will identify with both the students and the teachers portrayed in the book; thus, transferring understanding and applications back to their own classrooms.

Teacher Certification and the Professional Status of Teaching in North America: The New Battleground for Public Education

Teacher Certification and the Professional Status of Teaching in North America: The New Battleground for Public Education by Peter P. GrimmettThis book locates recent developments in teacher certification in North America within a broader, international policy context characterized as hegemonic neo-liberalism wherein economic rationalism has begun to trump professional judgment. We focus on teacher certification because it addresses fundamental questions about who will teach, what are the required minimum levels of competence, and who will make those decisions. Such questions are central to teaching, constituting a new battleground for education in North America. Two ideas-economic rationalism and professionalization-have become pivotal...

Errors and Misconceptions in Maths at Key Stage 2: Working Towards Success in SATS

Errors and Misconceptions in Maths at Key Stage 2: Working Towards Success in SATS by Mike Spooner

The activities in this book are designed both to help children to learn and to understand math concepts, and also to prepare them for taking SATS papers at KS2. There is plenty of research evidence to suggest that children are helped in their understanding of math problems if teachers focus on common misconceptions, and if children are given opportunities for discussion and explanation of their own understanding. Children can also feel stigmatized by being made to focus on their own errors.

Creating Socially Responsible Citizens: Cases from the Asia-Pacific Region

Creating Socially Responsible Citizens: Cases from the Asia-Pacific Region by John J. CoganThis book originates from a collaborative research initiative to examine how various societies in the Asia- Pacific Region construct moral and civic education, and to what extent these systems achieve the democratic objective of creating socially responsible citizens. In many western societies there is at least a rhetorical tendency to separate the moral and civic dimensions of citizenship education, and in some cases to exclude the moral dimension from the discourse of preparing citizens. However, as cross-societal dialogues and research about citizenship education have increased in the past...
