John is having problems with multiplication. His mother shows him a simple way of learning how to do it. He learns that using the word times instead of multiplication makes it much easier to understand, and it works out for him.<br />This book's aim is to assist kids in studying math in an easy and fun way. It also gives them the tools to work out the problems they are facing and develop their skills in mathematics.<br />Studies show that the main reason for children not doing well in math is based on weak foundations of previously acquired knowledge. If a child is having problems with numbers, they will not be able to work out multiplication, and if they don't understand multiplication, they will have problems with fractions and so on. A major challenge is that the words in use are not understandable to the child. For instance, what does the word multiply mean? To help your child understand, we make sure the subject is being learned in words they understand.<br />

<p><b>The mental well-being of children and adults is shockingly poor. Marc Brackett, author of <i>Permission to Feel</i>, knows why. And he knows what we can do. </b><br /><i>"We have a crisis on our hands, and its victims are our children."</i></p><p>Marc Brackett is a professor in Yale University’s Child Study Center and founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. In his 25 years as an emotion scientist, he has developed a remarkably effective plan to improve the lives of children and adults – a blueprint for understanding our emotions and using them wisely so that they help, rather than hinder, our success and well-being. The core of his approach is a legacy from his childhood, from an astute uncle who gave him permission to feel. He was the first adult who managed to see Marc, listen to him, and recognize the suffering, bullying, and abuse he’d endured. And that was the beginning of Marc’s awareness that what he was going through was temporary. He wasn’t alone, he wasn’t stuck on a timeline, and he wasn’t “wrong” to feel scared, isolated, and angry. Now, best of all, he could do something about it.</p><p>In the decades since, Marc has led large research teams and raised tens of millions of dollars to investigate the roots of emotional well-being. His prescription for healthy children (and their parents, teachers, and schools) is a system called RULER, a high-impact and fast-effect approach to understanding and mastering emotions that has already transformed the thousands of schools that have adopted it. RULER has been proven to reduce stress and burnout, improve school climate, and enhance academic achievement. This book is the culmination of Marc’s development of RULER and his way to share the strategies and skills with readers around the world. It is tested, and it works.</p><p>This book combines rigor, science, passion and inspiration in equal parts. Too many children and adults are suffering; they are ashamed of their feelings and emotionally unskilled, but they don’t have to be. Marc Brackett’s life mission is to reverse this course, and this book can show you how.</p>

Human Diversity in Education: An Intercultural Approach prepares teachers and other human-service providers to teach and interact more effectively with the diverse pool of students they are certain to encounter and help them to create an accepting and welcoming learning environment for all. It uses a research-based approach with cross-cultural and intercultural emphasis. The ninth edition provides a broad treatment of the various forms of diversity common in today's schools including nationality ethnicity race religion gender social class language acquisition and use sexual orientation health concerns and disability. We also maintain its research-based approach with an increased cross-cultural and intercultural emphasis.  We continue to stress that it is both at the level of the individual teacher as well as the organizational structure of the school where significant change must occur with regard to how diversity is understood and accommodated. Instructors and students can now access their course content through the Connect digital learning platform by purchasing either standalone Connect access or a bundle of print and Connect access.

<b><b>The untold story of the root cause of America's education crisis--and the seemingly endless cycle of multigenerational poverty.</b></b><br /><br />It was only after years within the education reform movement that Natalie Wexler stumbled across a hidden explanation for our country's frustrating lack of progress when it comes to providing every child with a quality education. The problem wasn't one of the usual scapegoats: lazy teachers, shoddy facilities, lack of accountability. It was something no one was talking about: the elementary school curriculum's intense focus on decontextualized reading comprehension "skills" at the expense of actual <i>knowledge</i>. In the tradition of Dale Russakoff's <i>The Prize </i>and Dana Goldstein's <i>The Teacher Wars</i>, Wexler brings together history, research, and compelling characters to pull back the curtain on this fundamental flaw in our education system--one that fellow reformers, journalists, and policymakers have long overlooked, and of which the general public, including many parents, remains unaware. <br /><br />But <i>The Knowledge Gap</i> isn't just a story of what schools have gotten so wrong--it also follows innovative educators who are in the process of shedding their deeply ingrained habits, and describes the rewards that have come along: students who are not only excited to learn but are also acquiring the knowledge and vocabulary that will enable them to succeed. If we truly want to fix our education system and unlock the potential of our neediest children, we have no choice but to pay attention.
