Includes in-classroom and home-school connection handouts. Buzz on in for the adventure of a life time by reading the How Mother Nature stories! Mother Nature has a terrible dilemma. Supreme Queen Bee, Queen Bluefire, no longer wants the responsibility of getting all the flowers to grow. Her bees want to play and have fun. They no longer want to work to pollinate the flowers. Oh dear, what's Mother Nature to do? Reviews from educators... "In the tradition of established folk and fairy tales, Mr. Schwartz has created a variety of engaging characters in this imaginative environmental trilogy. The message of preservation of humans and their environment is an important one for our youth." Dr. Richard Di Patri, Superintendent, Brevard Public Schools, Florida "The environment and conservation are becoming increasingly important to keeping our planet livable. Tom Schwartz has written a book to help children understand the importance of each creature in the scheme of things. The three stories in this book are tied together by the interaction of the wonderful, believable characters... The stories are well plotted with plenty of action and peril to keep even reluctant readers interested. The story shows how teamwork really pays off, and how the action of one can affect the whole planet. The vulnerability of the earth and it's creatures is stressed, and the whole ties in nicely with school curriculum. Tom Schwartz is a gifted writer, and this is a much needed contribution to children's literature and a great addition to your child's library." Beverly J. Rowe, MyShelf.com "Tom's stories about Mother Nature and her helpers left a big impact on the children, which will help make our Earth a cleaner place." Diane Goodson, Curriculum Resource Teacher, Eccleston Elementary School, Orlando, Florida "Tom visited out school and the children were enthralled with his stories about Mother Nature. Great message about saving the environment." Maureen Tassone, Media Specialist, Christa McAuliffe Elementary School, Palm Bay, Florida "Tom's Mother Nature stories reinforce what we teach about the environment. Our students loved the characters and their parts in helping Mother Nature." Sharen Talbert, Principal, Mims Elementary School, Mims, Florida

17 000 Classroom Visits Can T Be Wrong

Most educators are skilled at planning instruction and determining what they will do during the course of a lesson. However, to truly engage students in worthwhile, rigorous cognition, a profound shift is necessary: a shift in emphasis from teaching to learning. Put another way, we know that whoever is doing the work is also doing the learning—and in most classrooms, teachers are working much too hard. Authors John V. Antonetti and James R. Garver are the designers of the Look 2 Learning model of classroom walkthroughs. They've visited more than 17,000 classroomsÑexamining a variety of teaching and learning conditions, talking to students, examining their work, and determining their levels of thinking and engagement. From this vast set of data, they've drawn salient lessons that provide valuable insight into how to smooth the transition from simply planning instruction to designing high-quality student work. The lessons John and Jim have learned from their 17,000 (and counting) classroom visits can't be wrong. They share those lessons in this book, along with stories of successful practice and practical tools ready for immediate classroom application. The authors also provide opportunities for reflection and closure designed to help you consider (or reconsider) your current beliefs and practices. Throughout, you will hear the voices of John and Jim—and the thousands of students they met—as they provide a map for shifting the classroom dynamic from teaching to learning.

Try going a week without hearing a call for a massive overhaul of our educational system. Parents, students, educators, bureaucrats, pundits . . . everyone says something must be done. But what? And who should do it? In this environment, school leaders must build bridges for change. As the system now stands, many students spend great portions of their lives feeling inferior if they struggle, invisible if they already know the material, problematic if they're not a child of the dominant culture, and perverse if they question the school agenda. This book explores how school leaders can develop responsive, personalized, and differentiated classrooms. Differentiation is simply a teacher attending to the learning needs of a particular student or small group of students, rather than teaching a class as though all individuals in it were basically alike. Expert educators teach individuals the most important things in the most effective ways. No single approach works with all students. Classrooms function best when teachers and students join to develop multiple avenues to learning. Until every student is growing and successful, our own growth is unfinished. The authors show how school leaders can encourage and support growth in our classrooms.

Death was sleeping all around us. I could feel her in the high cries of uncomfortable babies and the low moans of old men as they fight the pain and discomfort of dysentery. This would be a trip through hell, and perhaps some unfortunate souls on this boat would make not make it out alive as is often the case on the Congo River. Perhaps, we all knew that some of us wouldn’t all arrive at our destination and that we would meet our Lord, our Maker, here on this black river of death and hope. Death and hope. Can it be one and the same? With this river, the answer is yes. People lived and died under the power of this powerful river every single day. It was now my turn to make this journey on its surface. Despite my deepest fears, I feel the warm breeze of God’s grace lingering around me in the air. Yes, hope is a powerful element in each of our hearts and that is what everyone here now clings onto tightly and with both fists, even if it means kissing death right on the lips.

Many primary teachers need help with their personal subject knowledge in science. Now that there is a nationally published scheme of work for science in primary schools, many teachers also need help in constructing lesson plans in order to cover all of the themes and possible activities in the scheme. Designed with those needs in mind, this book provides practical help in the form of sample lesson plans together with linked background subject knowledge for each of the science topics in the primary national curriculum. Each chapter has sample lesson plans for four different age-groups: reception, years 1-2, years 3-4 and years 5-6.
