How to Use Grading to Improve Learning Book Excerpt:

Grades are imperfect, shorthand answers to “What did students learn, and how well?” In How to Use Grading to Improve Learning, best-selling author Susan M. Brookhart guides educators at all levels in figuring out how to produce grades—for single assignments and report cards—that accurately communicate students’ achievement of learning goals. Brookhart explores topics that are fundamental to effective grading and learning practices: • Acknowledging that all students can learn • Supporting and motivating student effort and learning • Designing and grading appropriate assessments • Creating policies for report card grading • Implementing learning-focused grading policies • Communicating with students and parents • Assessing school or district readiness for grading reform The book is grounded in research and resonates with the real lessons learned in the classroom. Although grading is a necessary part of schooling, Brookhart reminds us that children are sent to school to learn, not to get grades. This highly practical book will help you put grading and learning into proper perspective, offering strategies you can use right away to ensure that your grading practices actually support student learning.

Dripping in detail, Judith Dring’s Pearl: An Australian Story brings to life the complex nature of a small Australian town. The realness of the world Judith Dring creates is truly remarkable and should not be missed.

In a world speckled with abusive husbands and wealthy classmates, Sally must work through the inequity of being a poor female to find a better life. Through much of her youth, her best friend, Pearl, opens her eyes to the world around her. However, as Sally will learn later, Pearl is an outcast herself. When Pearl must leave her, will Sally be able to navigate the path to adulthood and success on her own?

The Love Makers Book Excerpt:

How artificial intelligence and robotics are transforming the future of love and desire: a philosophical thriller and essays. A chance encounter between two women and a road trip into the future: It's Christmas Eve, and Scarlett, banker-turned-technologist, is leaving a secret underground lab to catch the last flight that will get her home in time to open presents with her three-year-old son. She offers a lift to a young woman in distress, who shares her intimate life story as they drive to the airport. These revelations will have devastating consequences for both of them. The Love Makers is a philosophical thriller about female friendship, class, motherhood, women, and work--and how artificial intelligence and robotics are transforming the future of love and desire.

Will advances in intelligent machines reverse decades of progress for women?

Queen Bee Roxanne Quimby Burt s Bees and Her Quest for a New National Park Book Excerpt:

How did she navigate the world of venture capitalists and investment bankers to engineer the sale of her company and reap a personal fortune? And what does her subsequent odyssey to buy and donate a new national park in Maine’s north woods—thus repaying what she regards as the “harmonic debt to the planet” she incurred by manufacturing beauty products—tell us about America and the American dream? Queen Bee is a fascinating biography of a fascinating woman, her game-changing skin-care company, and the quest to create a national park in the north woods. A richly textured portrait of the woman who built Burt’s Bees from nothing and altered the global business of skin care. A tightly woven story of the paper-industry exodus, the giant clearance sale of the north woods, the downward spiral of paper-company towns, and the battle for a new national park. A tale of the American Dream in action— what it can do for the fortunate few who are in the right place at the right time with wits and determination, and what it can do to the unfortunate many who find themselves on the wrong side of “creative destruction.”

Bolder Book Excerpt:

* BBC RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK * 'A joyously life-enhancing book [that] shatters the myths about ageing' Daily Mail Carl Honoré captured the zeitgeist with his international sensation, In Praise of Slow. In Bolder, he introduces us to another rising movement: a revolution in our approach to ageing. Ageing is inevitable. In this time of longer lifespans, however, we have the potential to age better than ever before. Having travelled the globe to meet the pioneers who are redefining ageing, Carl Honoré explores the cultural, medical and technological trends that will help us make the most of our longer lives. He shows us that the time has come to cast off prejudices and blur the lines of what is possible at every age. We can tear up the old script that locks us into learning in early life, working in the middle years and pursuing leisure with whatever time is left at the end. Instead, we can learn, work, rest, care for others, volunteer, create and have fun all the way through our lives. Bolder is a radical re-think of our approach to everything from education, healthcare and work, to design, relationships and politics. An essential and inspiring read to help all of us make ageing a bonus rather than a burden.

Out Walked Mel Book Excerpt:

A gripping book for teenage readers by award-winning writer - fast-paced, punchy and much loved Mel is short, stroppy and never knows when to keep her mouth shut. When she interferes with her best friend Wai's interaction with none other than the Minister of Education, and the interference isn't appreciated, Mel storms out. Out of school and out of home - and heads north. At first she sees it as an escape from a past and present too messy to deal with. But standing up for yourself is one thing; facing the consequences is quite another. Mel's return journey from one end of New Zealand to the other turns into a discovery of not only truths about her past, but also truths about herself. 'The most nicked book in schools'. Mel is instantly familiar - mixed-up, smart, and sassy.
