Ross Morrison McGill, bestselling author of Mark. Plan. Teach. and Teacher Toolkit, pinpoints the top ten key issues that schools in Great Britain are facing today, and provides strategies, ideas and techniques for how these issues can be tackled most effectively. We often talk about the challenges of teacher recruitment and retention, about new initiatives and political landscapes, but day in, day out, teachers and schools are delivering exceptional teaching and most of it is invisible. Ross uncovers, celebrates, analyses and disseminates best practice in teaching. This is supported by case studies and research undertaken by Ross in ten primary and secondary schools across Great Britain, including a pupil referral unit and private, state and grammar schools, as well as explanations from influential educationalists as to why and how these ideas work. Ross explores the issues of marking and assessment, planning, teaching and learning, teacher wellbeing, student mental health, behaviour and exclusions, SEND, curriculum, research-led practice and CPD. This book inspires readers to open their eyes to how particular problems can be resolved and how other schools are already doing this effectively. It is packed with ideas and advice for all primary and secondary classroom teachers and school leaders keen to provide the best education they possibly can for our young people today.

Teach Them All To Think

It just happened! There they were! Shouting! “Put it in a book! The research is significant! The magazine “Grade Teacher” devoted the whole issue to the research. What is significant is that we can teach for thinking! We can improve our pupil`s cognitive skills, be they decision- making, creativity, analysis, problem- solving, inductive and deductive reasoning, as well as concept development, to mention just a few. It all began when I had given a presentation at the ASCD convention addressing over 500 educators following a nine- year study on inquiry and cognitive-centered teaching funded by The Ford Foundation and now found myself mobbed by publishers to “PUT IT IN A BOOK! The book was written in ten weeks and it sold and sold and sold one hundred thousand copies and --- was translated into many foreign languages. This resulted in teaching pupils at all grade levels to process information, to develop conceptual frameworks and in depth understanding of the content in all disciplines be it mathematics, the sciences, the social science, music and the arts. Learners developed and “grew” concepts and conceptual frameworks and really understood the material as opposed to mouthing memorized sequences of words. Let me show you what I am trying to convey. I visited a first grade class and there they were singing praises to TWO, chanting One and One is TWO. Then it happened! One little boy raised his hand and blurted out, “What`s a two? We live in a conceptual world. Whether we are teaching kindergarten children their ABCs or graduate students advanced mathematics, we must teach so that they truly understand what they are talking about, so that they can develop concepts, simple concepts first and then more intricate concepts. That my friends is---- what learning is all about. My career has spanned over sixty years spent examining, researching, developing, writing and teaching various methods teachers can use to educate our children more effectively. So here it is, an updated version of the original book, designed for the digital age and our digital destiny providing our new generation with the critical cognitive skills to deal with a very challenging future! The processes and strategies are clearly delineated and applicable to every discipline at every level of instruction. These have been researched and evaluated. In sum, the world has become far more complex than any of us as educators could have envisioned. We are being deluged with the new, the unknown. We will need thinkers and problem solvers. Teach them all to think. Need I say more?

Can capitalism and citizenship co-exist? In recent years advocates of the Third Way have championed the idea of public-spirited capitalism as the antidote to the many problems confronting the modern world. This book develops a multi-disciplinary theory of citizenship, exploring the human abilities needed for its practice. It then argues that capitalism impedes the nurturing of these abilities. In advancing these arguments, Kathryn Dean draws on the work of a wide range of thinkers including Freud, Marx, Lacan, Habermas and Castells.

First published in 2008, Donna Freitas's Sex and the Soul revealed what college students -- at institutions large and small, public and private, secular, Catholic, and evangelical -- really think about sex, dating, religion, and spirituality. Based on face-to-face interviews with students across the country, Sex and the Soul achieved national acclaim, illuminating the as-yet-unexplored struggles of college students navigating the lines of faith and sexuality. Now, in this updated edition, Freitas reflects on the hundreds of conversations she has had with students since the book was first published in an all-new afterword, and offers practical advice for young people struggling with issues of sex and spirituality and for the adults giving them guidance.

Surviving Technopolis

Technopolis has no end in view other than bigger, faster, newer, and more. While giving us many material benefits--at least in the short run--in its wake are spiritual loss, alienation, and devastation. These essays not only evaluate Technopolis, but also seek wisdom to cope with our new human-made environments. Positively stated, they offer suggestions on how to bring us back into balance. Some of our best wisdom in analyzing Technopolis can be found in the voices of the Christian humanists. Unlike Enlightenment humanism, which tends to be human-centered, Christian humanism is concerned with the role of humankind within God's created order. G. K. Chesterton, T. S. Eliot, J. R. R. Tolkien, and C. S. Lewis represent this tradition. They, and others like them, understood that technological progress with no clear telos obscures what Eliot called the permanent things. Surviving Technopolis means restoring the things closest to us--those old identity-forming institutions of home, church, and community.

Death threats rock a Hollywood film festival: “Imagine Day of the Locust updated and rewritten by Carl Hiaasen” (Kirkus Reviews). After a family tragedy, LAPD cop Larry Freeman gets back to work with what he thinks is a simple assignment: Keep a rabid group of right-wing evangelical protestors as far away as possible from a celluloid celebration of ex—and very X—adult film actors. But when an oceanic research vessel off the West Coast is discovered with its crew vanished, Freeman has no idea how dirty this twisty game in the City of Angels is going to get. The players include the voluptuous daughter of a conservative US senator, a Glaswegian photographer with a mysterious agenda, a yacht-load of Hollywood producers, a throng of faded stars feeling more exposed than ever, and a band of self-righteous extremists bent on a glittering apocalypse. Set on the near side of the millennium, at a point when the world is about to spin out of control, this witty thriller delivers “a crazy off-the-wall roller coaster of a book that throws in not only the kitchen sink but the dresser, the best china, and the cook herself” (The Irish Times). “A wild, no-punches-pulled ride.” —The Philadelphia Weekly
