Small Victories: The Real World of a Teacher, Her Students, and Their High School

Descriere: Small Victories is Samuel Freedman's remarkable story of life on the front lines in the sort of high school that seems like a disaster with walls--old, urban, overcrowded, and overwhelmingly minority. Seaward Park High School, on Manhattan's Lower East Side, has been ranked among the worst 10 percent of high schools in the state--yet 92 percent of its graduates go on to higher education. The reason is dedicated teachers, one of whom, English instructor Jessica Siegel, is the subject of Freedman's unforgettably dramatic humanization of the education crisis. Following Siegel through the 1987-88 academic year, Freedman not only saw a master at work but learned from the inside just how a school functions against impossible odds. Small Victories alternates Jessica's experiences with those of others at Seaward Park, and as we cone to know intimately a number of the astonishing students and staff, Small Victories reveals itself as a book that has the power to change the way we see our world.

Education and the Significance of Life

Pret: 102,00 RON

J. Krishnamurti, Krishnamurt, Jiddu Krishnamurti

Education and the Significance of Life

First published in 1953, this classic Krishnamurti work demonstrates that education which does not result in deep integration of thought, feeling, and outlook is useless. Many contemporary methods of teaching emphasize slavish conformity to mass values and overstress the importance of technique; Education and the Significance of Life offers an alternative approach that stresses self-knowledge and a atmosphere of freedom and love for the child, to help create an atmosphere in which real education can take place. Education and the Significance of Life is a penetrating inquiry into the nature and requirements of the kind of education that can lead to self-fulfillment and ultimately, to world peace. Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895 - 1986) was a world-renowned spiritual teacher. For more than fifty years he traveled widely, sharing his message with people of all ages. He is the author of numerous books.

Choice Theory in the Classroom

William Glasser, M.D., puts his successful choice theory to work in our schools--with a new approach in increasing student motivation. "Dr. Glasser translates choice theory into a productive, classroom model of team learning with emphasis on satisfaction and excitement. Working in small teams, students find that knowledge contributes to power, friendship and fun. Because content and the necessary student collaboration skills must be taught, teachers need to develop skills if they are to use this model successfully. The dividends are 'turned-on ' students and satisfied teachers."--Madeline Hunter, University of California at Los Angeles "Choice Theory in the Classroom is a landmark book, without question one of the most important and useful books for teachers to appear in a long while. Written with rare lucidity and grace, the book has numerous instantly usable ideas that will contribute fundamentally to the success of classroom teachers. William Glasser combines his extensive theoretical expertise and wide practical experience to provide a practical and illuminating guide for teachers [that] should be required reading in every college of education in the country."--David and Roger ...
