Education in a Narcissistic Nation - Build Foundations for Students, Not Pedestals (Paperback, 2nd Edition): Karen Brackman,... Education in a Narcissistic Nation - Build Foundations for Students, Not Pedestals (Paperback, 2nd Edition)
Karen Brackman, Chad Mason
R613 Discovery Miles 6 130 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In their first edition, authors Chad Mason and Karen Brackman examined and explained the difficulties associated with attempting to successfully educate today's, often, over-indulged and narcissistic student population. The proliferation of narcissistic tendencies had consequences reaching every aspect of the educational environment from student achievement to the spate of school shootings across the United States. Included in the original edition were signs to observe of narcissistic traits and steps educators could take to alleviate the negative repercussions of students exhibiting those tendencies. The second edition not only reviews many of those same aspects from the first edition but seeks to add additional information based on further research, additional observations of contemporary incidents across the United States, and updated strategies educators can utilize when faced with over-indulged and narcissistic students who affect their already busy and difficult educational tasks. New material includes a greater in-depth examination into the history and growth of narcissism in the United States, the state and federal government's roles in fueling the narcissistic fire, and additional material regarding social media's role and how to effectively navigate that medium when educating students. This is a must-read book for all educators who work with today's 'me-driven' society and parent population. In an easy-to-read format, Mason and Brackman zero in on the problem, describe the consequences for failing to act, and provide practical solutions for those individuals in the educational trenches.

As a result of this distressing information on the challenges facing our educators, this book was written to highlight approaches and strategies that have been found to improve student outcomes. Administrative factors, educational policy and law, implementation of evidence-based teaching practices, collaborating with teachers' unions, fostering partnerships with parents as well as community organizations, meaningful professional development, and considerations for early childhood and special populations of students have been found to play a role in achieving such improved results.

Dropping Out - Why Students Drop Out of High School and What Can Be Done About It (Paperback): Russell W. Rumberger Dropping Out - Why Students Drop Out of High School and What Can Be Done About It (Paperback)
Russell W. Rumberger
R660 Discovery Miles 6 600 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The vast majority of kids in the developed world finish high school-but not in the United States. More than a million kids drop out every year, around 7,000 a day, and the numbers are rising. Dropping Out offers a comprehensive overview by one of the country's leading experts, and provides answers to fundamental questions: Who drops out, and why? What happens to them when they do? How can we prevent at-risk kids from short-circuiting their futures? Students start disengaging long before they get to high school, and the consequences are severe-not just for individuals but for the larger society and economy. Dropouts never catch up with high school graduates on any measure. They are less likely to find work at all, and more likely to live in poverty, commit crimes, and suffer health problems. Even life expectancy for dropouts is shorter by seven years than for those who earn a diploma. Rumberger advocates targeting the most vulnerable students as far back as the early elementary grades. And he levels sharp criticism at the conventional definition of success as readiness for college. He argues that high schools must offer all students what they need to succeed in the workplace and independent adult life. A more flexible and practical definition of achievement-one in which a high school education does not simply qualify you for more school-can make school make sense to young people. And maybe keep them there.

In Search of Civility - Confronting Incivility on the College Campus (Paperback): Kent M. Weeks In Search of Civility - Confronting Incivility on the College Campus (Paperback)

Americans are troubled by the growing incivility they see in public life and in their interpersonal relationships. The lack of civility is an increasing issue on college campuses, reflecting deep societal problems.
"In Search of Civility: Confronting Incivility on the College Campus," explores the timely issue by weaving stories of four college freshmen at a large university with current research on civility issues.
The four students encounter civility dilemmas ranging from cheating, plagiarism, and misuse of technology to alcohol, diversity, and peer pressure. They want to do the right thing, but distinguishing between right and wrong sometimes proves to be difficult particularly when their personal values conflict with campus norms.
"In Search of Civility" provides relevant context for the complex civility challenges facing students, faculty, and administrators. Colleges can play an important role in instilling civility among their students in their academic and social lives. Civil conduct requires treating others the way one wishes to be treated as well as a sense of duty and responsibility to the community.
By raising questions, "In Search of Civility" challenges students to make the connection between the morals and values they claim to hold and the practical implications of those values expressed through acts of civility in every part of their lives.
Weeks draws on a wide range of experiences--as teacher of undergraduate and graduate students at George Peabody College, Vanderbilt University, and as legal advisor to colleges throughout the US.

Creating Cultures of Consent - A Guide for Parents and Educators (Hardcover): Laura McGuire Creating Cultures of Consent - A Guide for Parents and Educators (Hardcover)
Laura McGuire
R663 Discovery Miles 6 630 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

With conversations about sexual violence, consent, and bodily autonomy dominating national conversations it can be easy to get lost in the onslaught of well-intended but often poorly executed messages. Through an exploration of research, scholarly expertise, and practical real-world application we can better formulate an understanding of what consent is, how we create consent cultures, and where the path forward lies. This book is designed with both educators and parents in mind. The tools highlighted throughout help adults unlearn harmful narratives about consent, boundaries, and relationships so that they can begin their work internally through modeling and self-reflection. We then uncover what consent truly is and is not, how culture plays an integral role in interpersonal scripting, and how teaching consent as a life skill can look in and out of the classroom. By integrating the need for consent to be taught in schools and homes we build bridges between the spaces where children learn and create alliances in the often-daunting task of eradicating rape-culture. This book is perfect for those already comfortable and familiar with this topic as well as those newer to understanding consent as a paradigm. Starting with a strong historical and research-informed foundation the book builds into action-oriented guidelines for conversations, curriculum, and community activism. This blended approach creates a guidebook that is unlike anything else on the market today.
