An acclaimed educator presents hands-on advice on teaching that meets today's emphasis on learning outcomes and assessment. This book is informed by the most up-to-date research on how people learn. It is suitable for all instructors in higher education - as well as high school teachers. Laurie Richlin has been running a workshop on course design for higher education for over fifteen years, modifying and improving it progressively from the feedback of participants, and from what they in turn have taught her. Her goals are to enable participants to appropriately select teaching strategies, to design and create the conditions and experiences that will enable their students to learn; and in the process to develop the scholarly scaffold to document their ongoing course design and achievements. This book familiarizes readers with course design elements; enables them to understand themselves as individuals and teachers; know their students; adapt to the learning environment; design courses that promote deep learning; and assess the impact of the teaching practices and design choices they have made. She provides tools to create a full syllabus, offers guidance on such issues as framing questions that encourage discussion, developing assignments with rubrics, and creating tests. The book is packed with resources that will help readers structure their courses and constitute a rich reference of proven ideas. What Laurie Richlin offers is a intellectual framework, set of tools and best practices to enable readers to design and continually reassess their courses to better meet their teaching goals and the learning needs of their students.

Tracking a person for many miles through wilderness and urban terrain is an art still practiced daily by some officers of the U.S. Border Patrol. Jack Kearney spent twenty-one years honing his skill of "Mantracking" by catching illegal entrants into the United States, finding lost persons in search and rescue operations, and assisting law enforcement agencies in criminal investigations from arson to murder. In addition, he spent many years teaching the art of tracking and devising the exercises listed in this book with which interested persons can self-teach themselves without needing the guidance of an expert tracker. Developing a proficiency in tracking skills can be an invaluable lifesaver for military, law enforcement, and search and rescue personnel. Although this book is principally about tracking people, it has been widely acclaimed by many famous and respected big game hunters. In one of the glowing reviews the book received, former Executive Editor of "Guns Ammo Magazine", Elmer Keith, declared, "Every hunter should have this book and study it." Bill Jordan's book, Mostly Huntin' devotes more than a page to extolling Mr. Kearney's skill and the virtues of his book and recommends its purchase "without reservation".

The United States has about $2 trillion tied up in aging school facilities. School districts throughout the country spend about $12 billion every year keeping this infrastructure going. Yet almost all of the new money we pour into school facilities reinforces an existing—and obsolete—model of schooling. In Blueprint for Tomorrow, Prakash Nair—one of the world’s leading school designers—explores the hidden messages that our school facilities and classrooms convey and advocates for the “alignment” of the design of places in which we teach and learn with twenty-first-century learning goals. Blueprint for Tomorrow provides simple, affordable, and versatile ideas for adapting or redesigning school spaces to support student-centered learning. In particular, the author focuses on ways to use current spending to modify existing spaces, and explains which kinds of adaptations offer the biggest return in terms of student learning. The book is organized by area—from classrooms to cafeterias—and is richly illustrated throughout, including “before and after” features, “smart idea” sidebars, and “do now” suggestions for practical first steps. It outlines key principles for designing spaces that support today’s learning needs and includes tools to help educators evaluate the educational effectiveness of their own spaces. Blueprint for Tomorrow will open educators’ eyes to the ways that architecture and learning are entwined and will challenge them to rethink the ways they teach and work together.

This final report of the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) describes how the United States can prepare young people as well as workers already on the job for productive work in the 21st century. Following an executive summary, Part I, Learning a Living, describes the economic choices facing the United States, defines the work force issue, and makes several recommendations to set the nation on the path to a high-performance future. It outlines the SCANS vision, describes how schools and the private sector can cooperate to create a high-performance economy capable of maintaining the nation's standard of living, and offers suggestions on how to proceed. It recommends that the Secretary of Labor take steps to ensure support for the continued development of the SCANS agenda. Part II, A Blueprint for High Performance, provides a more detailed roadmap for those charged with the responsibility for the commission's major concerns: educators, employers, and the designers of national certification and assessment systems. Each of the three chapters is directed to one of these groups responsible for implementing change. Appendixes include definitions of SCANS know-how and information on other SCANS materials. (YLB)

It follows the development of the whole child from life inside the womb to life in the school. At every stage the importance of addressing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states of the child is emphasized. For the first two dimensions of learning, the womb and the home, parents are in charge. The author encourages parents to develop resiliency in their children to help prepare them for life outside of the home. Do you know how to develop resiliency in your child? Have you taught him or her how to deal with bullying? Parents are reminded of developmental milestones and how to use them. Home tests and activities are provided to help parents support normal development as well as recognize the symptoms of possible developmental delays or conditions.

For example, do you have a student that leans to one side when reading or complains about tags in clothing? The author shares science-informed teaching strategies that demonstrate how the brain learns and how being aware of this can change a childs life. Dont miss this opportunity to bolster your understanding of how the mind works and become a better parent, educator and or administrator with Three Dimensions of Learning.
