101 WORDS YOUR CHILD WILL READ BY THE END OF GRADE 1

$14.95
Given encouragement, kids enjoy reading because they accept the challenge to read as one more fun game to play. This book assists parents in giving their child extra help in reading. It begins with a list of 101 "non-decodable" words--that is, words that cannot be sounded out because they don't follow basic phonetic rules. Among them are words such as laugh, through, walk, would, and others containing letters that are not pronounced. The author advises parents on how to teach children to recognize these and other "non-decodable" words. Next, parents get tips on teaching phonetic rules that enable children to sound out "decodable" words, which are the majority of words they will encounter as beginning readers. Chapters that follow feature practice activities, games, and projects, all focused to enhance children's reading skills. Answer keys appear at the back of the book. The accompanying CD-ROM features games and activities that will help boys and girls learn to read.

AMERICAS BLACK FOUNDERS: REVOLUTIONARY HEROES & EARLY LEADERS WITH 2

$16.95
History books are replete with heroic stories of Washington, Jefferson, and Adams, but what of Allen, Russwurm, and Hawley? America’s Black Founders celebrates the lesser known but significant lives and contributions of our nation’s early African American leaders. Many know that the Revolutionary War’s first martyr, Crispus Attucks, a dockworker of African descent, was killed at the Boston Massacre. But far fewer know that the final conflict of the war, the Battle of Yorktown, was hastened to a conclusion by James Armistead Lafayette, a slave and spy who reported the battle plans of General Cornwallis to George Washington.
 
Author Nancy Sanders weaves the histories of dozens of men and women—soldiers, sailors, ministers, poets, merchants, doctors, and other community leaders—who have earned proper recognition among the founders of the United States of America. To get a better sense of what these individuals accomplished and the times in which they lived, readers will celebrate Constitution Day, cook colonial foods, publish a newspaper, petition their government, and more. This valuable resource also includes a time line of significant events, a list of historic sites to visit or explore online, and Web resources for further study.

AN ADMINISTRATORS GUIDE TO BETTER TEACHER MENTORING

$43.95
This book address a major gap in the current mentoring programs at the secondary level. Staff development resources are often concentrated on helping new teachers be successful in their early school experience. Yes, a good idea, but a limited vision. Meanwhile many veteran teachers go without the mentoring assistance they need to be effective classroom teachers. While a few become mentors themselves, many veteran teachers just settle, slowly giving up, and become at risk of failure, burnout, and thinking only of retirement. This book is a call to school superintendents, building administrators, department chairs, school board members, union leaders, parent leaders, and teacher educators to address the need to provide ongoing mentoring for all teachers.

APPROACHES TO TEACHING (P)

$24.99
This popular text continues using the format of the three approaches--The Executive, The Facilitator, and The Liberationist. For the Fifth Edition, the authors add four new case studies: ''Scripted Teaching,'' ''Accountability and Merit,'' ''What is the Value of Caring Relationships?'' and ''School Funding.'' Using these and other realistic case studies, they explore the strengths and weaknesses of each approach so that teachers can critically assess their own philosophical positions on teaching. Teachers are urged to ask themselves such questions as: What is the main goal of teaching? What is the most important purpose of education? What do I expect my students to eventually become? Is the way I structure my teaching influenced by how I view my role and goals? This updated edition also adds a new section called ''Topics and Resources'' to encourage further inquiry into teaching.


Approaches to Teaching is one of the five books in the highly regarded Teachers College Press THINKING ABOUT EDUCATION SERIES, now in its Fifth Edition. All of the books in this series are designed to help pre- and in-service teachers bridge the gap between theory and practice.

BEYOND AFFIRMATIVE ACTION: REFRAMING THE CONTEXT OF HIGHER EDUCATION

$23.40
A century ago, universities were primarily in the business of molding upper-class young men for the professions. The world has changed, and universities have been forced to keep pace by experimenting with affirmative action, curriculum overhauls, part-time degree programs, and the like. But at the core of the modern university establishment is an ingrained academic culture that has operated in the same ways for centuries, contends Robert Ibarra, and in Beyond Affirmative Action, he calls for a complete paradigm shift. Why does academic culture, he asks, emphasize individual achievement over teamwork? Why do so many exams test discrete bits of knowledge rather than understanding of the big picture? Why is tenure awarded for scholarly publications rather than for sharing knowledge in diverse ways with students and a wider community? Why do undergraduates drop out? And why do so many bright graduate students and junior faculty-including many minorities, women, and some majority males-become disenchanted with academia or fail to be accepted and rewarded by the tenured faculty? Ibarra introduces a theory of "multicontextuality" which proposes that many people learn better when teachers emphasize whole systems of knowledge and that education can create its greatest successes by offering and accepting many approaches to teaching and learning. This revolutionary paradigm also addresses why current thinking about academic systems and organizational culture, affirmative action, and diversity must be revised. Ibarra bases his groundbreaking proposals upon his own synthesis of findings from anthropological, educational, and psychological studies of how people from various cultures learn, as well as findings from extended interviews he conducted with Latinos and Latinas who pursued graduate degrees and then either became university faculty or chose other careers. From his perspectives as a practicing anthropologist, teacher, re
