How can we ensure that all students, regardless of cultural background or socioeconomic status, are granted equitable opportunities to succeed in the classroom and beyond? In Keeping It Real and Relevant: Building Authentic Relationships in Your Diverse Classroom, author and veteran educator Ignacio Lopez offers hard-won lessons that educators at all levels can apply to teaching, assessing, counseling, and designing interventions for learners from all walks of life. These insights are all rooted in the same core principle: building deep and meaningful relationships with students is the key driver of their success. In addition to examining the pivotal role of relationship-building among teachers and students in preparing the latter to perform at the highest level, this book offers * Real-life examples of challenging classroom situations, each with a detailed breakdown of how they were peacefully and non-punitively resolved; * Strategies for designing learning environments suited to the individual needs of students and reflective of their cultural backgrounds; * Ideas for scaffolding students as they experience and internalize epiphanies about what works and what doesn't, both academically and behaviorally; and * Activities and reflection questions for use in professional development. Many teachers find balancing the needs of increasingly diverse classrooms made up of learners from increasingly diverse backgrounds to be a difficult and often thankless task—and one that takes precious time away from instructional planning. Here, Lopezoutlines simple but ingenious steps for addressing these needs holistically, in a way that takes no extra time yet amply enhances the learning experience for students. Clear, practical, and much-needed, Keeping It Real and Relevant is the ultimate blueprint for creating a harmonious and successful classroom for kids of all colors, creeds, and cultures.

This text has been developed to satisfy two major goals. First, we build the confidence, assurance, and poise of the reader with regard to energy matters, in general, and energy effects on real estate, in particular. The reader must have a basic understanding of the energy sectors so that he or she can be comfortable with what is to follow. Secondly, the text strives to develop competence in the reader, so that he or she can proficiently perform the analytical evaluations needed to incorporate energy factors into his or her business routines. The intent of these goals is to provide the reader with the tools needed, and to demonstrate how these tools can be used to improve the reader's way of doing business. The text includes applications of these tools to actual energy saving methods, but it does not dictate "pat" answers to the energy crisis. Instead, it strives to provide the reader with the best answers for a particular market area. This approach also enables the reader to adjust to changing conditions and to evaluate new energy conserving devices not discussed in the text. This report was originally prepared for and published by the U. S. Department of Energy. At the time of original publication Hans R. Isakson was Assistant Professor, Department of Real Estate and Urban Development, College of Business Administration, University of Georgia; and Deena D.

Communicating the eternal truth of the Gospel in the continually changing context and language of contemporary culture can be a challenging task. In HEAR the WORD, author Dr. James A. Prette explores authentic Christian preaching in the postmodern culture. In this examination, Prette discusses the three essential elements of persuasive communication—pathos, ethos, and logos—and their parallels in Christian spiritual transformation—content, context, and conveyor. He offers a theological reflection exploring and defining a biblical paradigm for spiritual formation through the exposition of the biblical logos that crosses cultural and generational boundaries. He also delves into the cultural shift that has taken place in the ethos of western culture, from a modernist worldview to a postmodern one, and its impact on Christian life and ministry. HEAR the WORD offers nine important themes that can guide spiritual leaders in listening to and proclaiming the authentic word of God in this new postmodern paradigm.

Developmental Psychology: From infancy to adulthood, 3rd edition, continues to bring together a balanced focus on Australian and international research contributions in developmental psychology. Students and lecturers alike will find this text addresses the issues of lifespan development in a rigorous and challenging way using a thematic rather than chronological approach. International and national research on graduate attributes consistently identifies critical thinking as one of the most important skills for psychology students. The inclusion of Critical Thinking for Group Discussion at the end of each chapter is designed to encourage students in the development of this key skill. These questions help students develop the ability to engage in discussions on truth and validity and evaluate the relative importance of ideas and data. Students learn by doing, and this is encouraged through interactive features such as Stop and Review, Research Focus Boxes, and Practical Exercises which engage them in group discussion and challenge them to delve into complex and cross-domain analysis of lifespan development. Concept maps at the start of each chapter provide students with a visual snapshot of the chapter content.

Is there too much emphasis on guided reading in primary classrooms? It's a question that many educators, like kindergarten teacher and literacy coach Cathy Mere, are starting to ask. Guided reading provides opportunities to teach students the strategies they need to learn how to read increasingly challenging texts, but Cathy found that she needed to find other ways to help students gain independence. While maintaining guided reading as an important piece of their reading program, teachers need to offer students opportunities during the day to develop as readers, to learn to choose books, to find favorite genres and authors, and to talk about their reading. In More Than Guided Reading, Cathy shares her journey as she moved from focusing on guided reading as the center of her reading program to placing children at the heart of literacy learning—not only providing more time for students to discover their reading lives, but also shaping instruction to meet the needs of the diverse learners in her classroom. By changing the structure of the day, Cathy found she was better able to adjust the support she was providing students, allowing time for whole-class focus lessons, conferences, and opportunities to share ideas, as well as reading from self-selected texts using the strategies, skills, and understandings acquired in reader's workshop. The focus lesson is the centerpiece of the workshop. It is often tied to a read-aloud and connected to learning from the previous day, helping to build skills, extend thinking, and develop independence over time. This thoroughly practical text offers numerous sample lessons, questions for conferences, and ideas for revamping guided reading groups. It will help teachers tweak the mix of instructional components in their reading workshops, and provoke school-wide conversations about the place of guided reading in a complete literacy curriculum.
