<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鈥檚 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 鈥?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鈥檇 endured. And that was the beginning of Marc鈥檚 awareness that what he was going through was temporary. He wasn鈥檛 alone, he wasn鈥檛 stuck on a timeline, and he wasn鈥檛 鈥渨rong鈥?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鈥檚 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鈥檛 have to be. Marc Brackett鈥檚 life mission is to reverse this course, and this book can show you how.</p>

<b><b>The untold story of the root cause of America's education crisis--and the seemingly endless cycle of multigenerational poverty.</b></b><br /><br />It was only after years within the education reform movement that Natalie Wexler stumbled across a hidden explanation for our country's frustrating lack of progress when it comes to providing every child with a quality education. The problem wasn't one of the usual scapegoats: lazy teachers, shoddy facilities, lack of accountability. It was something no one was talking about: the elementary school curriculum's intense focus on decontextualized reading comprehension "skills" at the expense of actual <i>knowledge</i>. In the tradition of Dale Russakoff's <i>The Prize </i>and Dana Goldstein's <i>The Teacher Wars</i>, Wexler brings together history, research, and compelling characters to pull back the curtain on this fundamental flaw in our education system--one that fellow reformers, journalists, and policymakers have long overlooked, and of which the general public, including many parents, remains unaware. <br /><br />But <i>The Knowledge Gap</i> isn't just a story of what schools have gotten so wrong--it also follows innovative educators who are in the process of shedding their deeply ingrained habits, and describes the rewards that have come along: students who are not only excited to learn but are also acquiring the knowledge and vocabulary that will enable them to succeed. If we truly want to fix our education system and unlock the potential of our neediest children, we have no choice but to pay attention.

Dissecting twenty years of educational politics in our nation鈥檚 largest cities, <i>American School Reform</i> offers one of the clearest assessments of school reform as it has played out in our recent history. Joseph P. McDonald and his colleagues evaluate the half-billion-dollar Annenberg Challenge鈥攍aunched in 1994鈥攁longside other large-scale reform efforts that have taken place in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and the San Francisco Bay Area. They look deeply at what school reform really is, how it works, how it fails, and what differences it can make nonetheless.<br /><br />聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 聽<br /><br />McDonald and his colleagues lay out several interrelated ideas in what they call a theory of action space. Frequently education policy gets so ambitious that implementing it becomes a near impossibility. Action space, however, is what takes shape when talented educators, leaders, and reformers guide the social capital of civic leaders and the financial capital of governments, foundations, corporations, and other backers toward true results. Exploring these extraordinary collaborations through their lifespans and their influences on future efforts, the authors provide political hope鈥攖hat reform efforts can work, and that our schools can be made better. 聽聽

鈥淒rop the flashcards鈥攇rit, character, and curiosity matter even more than cognitive skills. A persuasive wake-up call.鈥濃€?lt;i>People</i><br /><br />Why do some children succeed while others fail? The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in <i>How Children Succeed</i>, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter more have to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, optimism, and self-control.<br /><br /><i>How Children Succeed</i> introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators, who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories鈥攁nd the stories of the children they are trying to help鈥擳ough reveals how this new knowledge can transform young people鈥檚 lives. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do鈥攁nd do not鈥攑repare their children for adulthood. And he provides us with new insights into how to improve the lives of children growing up in poverty. This provocative and profoundly hopeful book will not only inspire and engage readers, it will also change our understanding of childhood itself.<br /><br />鈥淚lluminates the extremes of American childhood: for rich kids, a safety net drawn so tight it鈥檚 a harness; for poor kids, almost nothing to break their fall.鈥濃€?lt;i>New York Times</i><br /><br />鈥淚 learned so much reading this book and I came away full of hope about how we can make life better for all kinds of kids.鈥濃€?lt;i>Slate</i>

Growth Mindsets are recognized as a powerful teaching and learning tool. To avoid misunderstanding, misuse or oversimplification, this new book explores what Mindsets are, what they are not and how effective use of them can support and enhance learning and teaching. It takes a focused look at whether a more general approach to mindsets for all learning in the classroom is more effective than a subject specific approach and explores who Mindsets can work for. It includes a chapter on Mindsets and SEN and also looks at wider issues of self-esteem, mental health and wellbeing. It offers clear guidance backed up by research and avoids quick fixes or suggestions with little evidence base. The text will appeal to teachers as a pragmatic and trusted guide to a well-known strategy proven to enhance learning.

If burying a child has a special poignancy, the tragedy at a Catholic elementary school in Chicago almost forty years ago was an extraordinary moment of grief. One of the deadliest fires in American history, it took the lives of ninety-two children and three nuns at Our Lady of the Angels School, left many families physically and psychologically scarred for life, and destroyed a close-knit working-class neighborhood. This is the moving story of that fire and its consequences written by two journalists who have been obsessed with the events of that terrible day in December 1958. It is a story of ordinary people caught up in a disaster that shocked the nation. In gripping detail, those who were there鈥昪hildren, teachers, firefighters鈥昫escribe the fear, desperation, and panic that prevailed in and around the stricken school building on that cold Monday afternoon. But beyond the flames, the story of the fire at Our Lady of the Angels became an enigma whose mystery has deepened with time: its cause was never officially explained despite evidence that it had been intentionally set by a troubled student at the school. The fire led to a complete overhaul of fire safety standards for American schools, but it left a community torn apart by grief and anger, and accusations that the Catholic church and city fathers had shielded the truth. Messrs. Cowan and Kuenster have recreated this tragedy in a powerful narrative with all the elements of a first-rate detective story.
