Description : "An essential addition...Wegerif zooms in on the most important ingredient of all in a learning-to-learn classroom culture - the kinds of talk that are allowed and encouraged - and brings together both scholarly and practical approaches in a highly fruitful and accessible way." Guy Claxton, author of Building Learning Power, What's the Point of School? and New Kinds of Smart 'This is a thought-provoking and readable book, which makes a very good case for the importance of teaching thinking skills and encouraging creativity through dialogue.' Professor Neil Mercer, University of Cambridge, UK, author of Words and Minds and Dialogue and Development There is growing interest in developing flexible thinking and learning skills in the primary classroom but there has been little agreement as to exactly what these skills are and how best to teach for them. This innovative book responds to that challenge with a coherent account of what thinking and creativity are and how they can be taught. Taking a 'dialogic' approach, it shows how engaging children in real dialogue is possible in every area of the curriculum and how this can lead to more reflective, considerate and creative children who are able to think for themselves and to learn creatively. Wegerif explores the success of approaches such as Philosophy for Children, Thinking Together, Dialogic Teaching and Building Learning Power. Using illustrations and activities, he explains how teaching and learning across the primary curriculum can be transformed. This book is important reading for all primary teachers and trainees who are looking for practical ideas for teaching thinking. It will also be valuable for anyone who wants to understand education and think more about what is most important in education.

Description : In the early years children's cognitive development is largely shaped by their home environment, but research shows that on average, children who are entitled to free school meals start primary school with lower scores in reading and mathematics than their peers. As an early years practitioner, you can influence these children's learning within your setting, and help them to achieve the same levels as their more affluent peers. That's what this book aims to do - help you to narrow the gap! This unique book shows you how to provide a 'safety net' for children who are most at risk of underachievement. You will be taught about the different factors that positively impact upon children's learning (including adult interaction and literacy and mathematical experiences) and how they link to good practice within the EYFS. From tips for creating a rich, and diverse play environment for them to enjoy, to suggestions on how to carefully guide activities and experiences, this book will help you to establish a strong, long term education programme. You will be amazed at the impact you will have upon these children simply by making small changes to your practice and planning, and you might even increase your setting's chance of gaining an 'outstanding' Ofsted grade!

Description : Give students the essential thinking skills they need to thrive. Exclusively content-focused teaching may improve test scores, but it leaves students without the cognitive skills for success in an information-overloaded world where deep thinking, collaborative problem solving, and emotional intelligence is essential. In this book, David Hyerle presents case studies of schools and educators who have applied these powerful models, in some case system-wide, to remedy this situation, including: Visual learning tools including Hyerle’s renowned Thinking Maps A language for students to improve their intellectual-emotional behaviors as they learn A system for developing students’ abilities to ask questions in the context of a developing Community of Inquiry

Description : Literacy teaching tends to take a structural approach to language, focusing on auditory products or skills such as sounds, morphemes, words, sentences, and vocabulary. However, new research suggests that the majority of English speakers actually think and learn in visual concepts, and that there is a cultural and linguistic mismatch between auditory teaching methods and the way students think and learn. This has important implications for all educators including those who work with students with neurogenic disabilities, such as autism spectrum disorders and ADHD. In her new book, Dr. Ellyn Lucas Arwood outlines a revolutionary four-tiered model of how a learner acquires language, and suggests ways to impose visual language functions onto an auditory language like English in order to improve learning for both neurotypical learners and those with neurogenic disabilities. Dr. Arwood provides tried-and-tested intervention strategies that work with all levels of ability, giving readers the knowledge and confidence to teach learners to become more literate in a way that raises learners' abilities to think and problem solve. This book takes a fresh look at how language and literacy interact, and will be of interest to educators and special educators, speech and language pathologists, and other professionals who support language learning and development.

Description : About the book and the author John Yench tackles that grand conception, a universal language for mankind. He has been involved with the printed word all his life, as journalist, correspondent, editor, columnist, and author, as well as TV moderator and host. His interests range to acting and singing in musicals and theater, including a character role in a Hollywood film. Born in Russia during the throes of its revolution, John Yench grew up in China where his career began in the Associated Press and China News. In Asia, he was an organizing founder of the Free Enterprise Society of the Philippines, along with well known national figures that included a President of the Republic, whose daughter is now the current President of the Philippines. While there, he edited the Journal of the American Chamber of Commerce, and formed the Economic Information Service. From 1948 on, he has worked on a universal, self-consistent language, where a word's sound alone would reveal its meaning, without the need of a dictionary. He summarized his ideas in the seventies, acquiring in the process, a Master's Degree at California State University. This book is the compilation of his work since that time.

Description : What comes before phonics? The teaching of phonics is now strongly embedded in early literacy teaching in schools and early years settings, and it has been shown to be an important part of becoming literate. There is, however, significant concern about the formalising of phonics teaching for very young children. So what should we be focusing on in early years? What comes before this formal teaching? What do children need to know and experience to enable them to access phonics teaching with success? This book looks in detail at the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes that children need to enable them to come to phonics teaching ready to learn and with a good chance of success. The second edition has been updated to include the latest research and enhanced support on working with parents and carers.
