<strong>A five-time Moth GrandSLAM winner and bestselling novelist shows how to tell a great story — and why doing so matters</strong>.<br /> <br /> Whether we realize it or not, we are always telling stories. On a first date or job interview, at a sales presentation or therapy appointment, with family or friends, we are constantly narrating events and interpreting emotions and actions. In this compelling book, storyteller extraordinaire Matthew Dicks presents wonderfully straightforward and engaging tips and techniques for constructing, telling, and polishing stories that will hold the attention of your audience (no matter how big or small). He shows that anyone can learn to be an appealing storyteller, that everyone has something “storyworthy” to express, and, perhaps most important, that the act of creating and telling a tale is a powerful way of understanding and enhancing your own life.

<DIV>“Drop the flashcards—grit, character, and curiosity matter even more than cognitive skills. A persuasive wake-up call.”—<I>People</I><BR><BR>Why do some children succeed while others fail? The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in <I>How Children Succeed</I>, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter more have to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, optimism, and self-control.<BR><BR><I>How Children Succeed</I> introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators, who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories—and the stories of the children they are trying to help—Tough reveals how this new knowledge can transform young people’s lives. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do—and do not—prepare their children for adulthood. And he provides us with new insights into how to improve the lives of children growing up in poverty. This provocative and profoundly hopeful book will not only inspire and engage readers, it will also change our understanding of childhood itself.<BR><BR>“Illuminates the extremes of American childhood: for rich kids, a safety net drawn so tight it’s a harness; for poor kids, almost nothing to break their fall.”—<I>New York Times</I><BR><BR>“I learned so much reading this book and I came away full of hope about how we can make life better for all kinds of kids.”—<I>Slate</I></div>

Donalyn Miller says she has yet to meet a child she couldn't turn into a reader. No matter how far behind Miller's students might be when they reach her 6th grade classroom, they end up reading an average of 40 to 50 books a year. Miller's unconventional approach dispenses with drills and worksheets that make reading a chore. Instead, she helps students navigate the world of literature and gives them time to read books they pick out themselves. Her love of books and teaching is both infectious and inspiring. The book includes a dynamite list of recommended "kid lit" that helps parents and teachers find the books that students really like to read.

I matter is a POWERFUL thought. <br /><br />How often do you look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself you matter?<br /><br />How often do you think about all the people you matter to?<br /><br />Do you ever think about WHY you matter? <br /><br />Our children need to grow up knowing without a doubt that they MATTER. <br /><br />Why? Children can feel small and insignificant in a busy and often complicated world, and begin to question their place in life.<br /> <br />This becomes especially serious in the teenage years when peer pressure is at its worst. <br /><br />Let's work together to teach our children to look between the lines and to realize how much they matter, whom they matter to, and why they matter. <br /><br />Purchase a paper copy of I Matter and get the Kindle version, FREE! <br /><br />Teachers can go to bit.ly/IMatterLessonPlan for a free lesson plan to use with this story, and to help boost the self-esteem in your students.

This new edition reflects updates to policy and practice and further develops the critical perspective on contemporary thinking about childhood and observational methods. This edition has also expanded its focus to include observation of primary-aged children. </p><p>A popular text, it will appeal to students and professionals in all children's services, whether in pre-school, schools, social care, mental health or health settings.</p>
