<b>A blueprint for how parents can stop worrying about their children’s future and start helping them prepare for it, from the cofounder and CEO of one of America’s most innovative public-school networks</b><br /><b><b><b><br />BILL GATES<b>’S HOLIDAY READING LIST</b> • </b></b>“A treasure trove of deeply practical wisdom that accords with everything I know about how children thrive.”—Angela Duckworth, <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author of <i>Grit</i></b><br /><b> </b><br />An educator and mother, Diane Tavenner cofounded the first Summit school in 2003. Summit Public Schools has won national recognition because 99 percent of Summit students get into a four-year college, and Summit students finish college at twice the national average. But in a radical departure from the environments created by the college admissions arms race, Summit students aren’t focused on competing with their classmates for rankings or test scores. Instead, students spend their days solving real-world problems and developing the skills of self-direction, collaboration, and reflection, all of which prepare them to succeed in college, thrive in today’s workplace, and lead a secure and fulfilled life. <br /><br />Today, thousands of educators, tens of thousands of students, and hundreds of schools across thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia have embraced the Summit model. <br /><br />Through personal stories and the hard-earned lessons of Summit’s exceptional team of educators and diverse students, Diane Tavenner shares the underlying learning philosophies and unconventional wisdom that lead to all children being prepared for school and life.<br /><br /><b>Advance praise for <i>Prepared</i></b><br /><br />“In a world filled with lots of parenting advice, <i>Prepared </i>cuts through the noise, offering a no-nonsense guide for raising curious, confident kids. Diane shares the secret sauce behind Summit’s success and how we can make sure that all kids can have the same opportunity.”<b>—Jon Deane, CEO of GreatSchools</b><br /><br /> “<i>Prepared</i> is compelling and actionable. It tells the story of why we all <i>must</i> do this work. We must prepare every child, not allow luck or circumstance to dictate their future—and ours.”<b>—Dr. Priscilla Chan, CEO of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, pediatrician, and mother</b><br /><br />“Diane Tavenner is one of the leading thinkers in education today—her energy and insights are infectious. There is no one better to think big about what kids need, and who can roll up her sleeves to make it happen.”<b>—Sal Khan, founder and CEO of Khan Academy</b>

<b>In this instant <i>New York Times </i>bestseller, Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit.” “Inspiration for non-geniuses everywhere” (<i>People</i>).</b><br /><br />The daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of “genius,” Angela Duckworth is now a celebrated researcher and professor. It was her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience that led to her hypothesis about what really drives success: not genius, but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.<br /> <br /> In <i>Grit</i>, she takes us into the field to visit cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, teachers working in some of the toughest schools, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she’s learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers—from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to <i>New Yorker</i> cartoon editor Bob Mankoff to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll.<br /> <br /> “Duckworth’s ideas about the cultivation of tenacity have clearly changed some lives for the better” (<i>The New York Times Book Review</i>). Among <i>Grit</i>’s most valuable insights: any effort you make ultimately counts <i>twice </i>toward your goal; grit can be <i>learned</i>, regardless of IQ or circumstances; when it comes to child-rearing, neither a warm embrace nor high standards will work by themselves; how to trigger lifelong interest; the magic of the Hard Thing Rule; and so much more. Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, <i>Grit</i> is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how<i> that</i>—not talent or luck—makes all the difference. This is “a fascinating tour of the psychological research on success” (<i>The Wall Street Journal)</i>.

<b>The classic, bestselling book on the psychology of racism -- now fully revised and updated</b><br /><br /> Walk into any racially mixed high school and you will see Black, White, and Latino youth clustered in their own groups. Is this self-segregation a problem to address or a coping strategy? Beverly Daniel Tatum, a renowned authority on the psychology of racism, argues that straight talk about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides. These topics have only become more urgent as the national conversation about race is increasingly acrimonious. This fully revised edition is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of race in America.<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>

<b><i>WALL STREET JOURNAL</i> BESTSELLER</b><br /> <br /> <b>As featured in the <i>New York Post</i> and as seen on Tucker Carlson, Fox and Friends, Martha MacCallum, and more.</b><br /> <br /> <b>The Parkland school shooting was the most avoidable mass murder in American history. And the policies that made it inevitable are being forced into public schools across America.</b><br /><br />“After my sister Meadow was murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the media obsessed for months about the type of rifle the killer used. It was all clickbait and politics, not answers or justice. That wasn’t good enough for us. My dad is a real tough guy, but Meadow had him wrapped around her little finger. He would do anything she wanted, and she would want him to find every answer so that this never happens again.<br /> <br /> My dad teamed up with one of America’s leading education experts to launch his own investigation. We found the answers to the questions the media refused to ask. Questions about school safety that go far beyond the national gun debate. And the answers to those questions matter for parents, teachers, and schoolchildren nationwide.<br /> <br /> If one single adult in the Broward County school district had made one responsible decision about the Parkland shooter, then my sister would still be alive. But every bad decision they made makes total sense once you understand the district’s politically correct policies, which started here in Broward and have spread to thousands of schools across America.”<br /> <br /> <i>—Hunter Pollack, “Foreword”</i>

<p><b>By the <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author: a provocative account of the attack on the humanities, the rise of intolerance, and the erosion of serious learning</b><br /><b></b><br />America is in crisis, from the university to the workplace. Toxic ideas first spread by higher education have undermined humanistic values, fueled intolerance, and widened divisions in our larger culture. Chaucer, Shakespeare and Milton? Oppressive. American history? Tyranny. Professors correcting grammar and spelling, or employers hiring by merit? Racist and sexist. Students emerge into the working world believing that human beings are defined by their skin color, gender, and sexual preference, and that oppression based on these characteristics is the American experience. Speech that challenges these campus orthodoxies is silenced with brute force.</p><p><i>The Diversity Delusion</i> argues that the root of this problem is the belief in America’s endemic racism and sexism, a belief that has engendered a metastasizing diversity bureaucracy in society and academia. Diversity commissars denounce meritocratic standards as discriminatory, enforce hiring quotas, and teach students and adults alike to think of themselves as perpetual victims. From #MeToo mania that blurs flirtations with criminal acts, to implicit bias and diversity compliance training that sees racism in every interaction, Heather Mac Donald argues that we are creating a nation of narrowed minds, primed for grievance, and that we are putting our competitive edge at risk. </p><p>But there is hope in the works of authors, composers, and artists who have long inspired the best in us. Compiling the author’s decades of research and writing on the subject, <i>The Diversity Delusion</i> calls for a return to the classical liberal pursuits of open-minded inquiry and expression, by which everyone can discover a common humanity.</p>
