Description : Human beings are born to learn. During the last few decades, developmental science has exploded with discoveries of how, specifically, learning happens. This provides us with an unprecedented window into children's minds: how and when they begin to think, perceive, understand, and apply knowledge. Wendy Ostroff builds on this research and shows you how to harness the power of the brain, the most powerful learning machine in the universe. She highlights the processes that inspire or propel learning--play, confidence, self-regulation, movement, mnemonic strategies, metacognition, articulation, and collaboration--and distills the research into a synthesis of the most important takeaway ideas that teachers will need as they design their curriculum and pedagogy. Each chapter has suggested activities for exactly how teachers can put theory into practice in the classroom. When you understand how your students learn, you will know how to teach them in ways that harness the brain's natural learning systems. Dr. Wendy L. Ostroff is Associate Professor in the Program for the Advancement of Learning at Curry College.

Description : Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in Schools is a key resource in supporting student teachers during and beyond their teaching training to begin to understand how, and be able, to address the needs of children and young people within schools and college in line with the Code of Practice (DfE, 2014). Drawing on her wealth of experience and up-to-date theory, Janice Wearmouth explores current legislation related to special educational needs and disability (SEND) within a historical and geographical context so that readers can understand how and why the current SEND policy and practice has developed as it has. She considers assessment and planning in relation to both informal and standardised approaches, and offers ways to engage with young people's, peers' and families' views and experiences. Wearmouth focuses on ways to understand, assess and address the most common forms of SEND: literacy and numeracy difficulties and behavioural concerns related to social, emotional and mental health. She discusses how ICT might be used to include young people with various degrees of difficulty in learning and explores professional relationships and partnership work with parents and families. Throughout this engaging guide, readers are supported with clear questions of focus for each chapter, and within each chapter exemplars and vignettes, and reflective and discussion activities for individuals and groups, can be found to enable them to consider their own practice to ensure that all young people can learn effectively in their classrooms. The supportive companion website provides a wealth of further reading resources.
