Boys and Girls Learn Differently!: A Guide for Teachers and Parents (Wiley Audio)
The best kept secret in education -- a controversial manifesto on how the fundamental differences between boys and girls affect the way they learn. Many of us have felt instinctively that boys and girls don't learn the same way -- or at the same rate. Now, we have the scientific evidence to document and understand their many biological gender differences. For instance, girls talk sooner, develop better vocabularies, read better, and have better fine motor skills. Boys, on the other hand, have better auditory memory, are better at three-dimensional reasoning, are more prone to explore, and achieve greater abstract design ability after puberty. In this profoundly significant book, Michael Gurian synthesises this current knowledge and presents a new way to educate our children based on brain science, neurological development, and chemical and hormonal disparities. Then he goes on to demonstrate how this difference in hard-wiring and socialised gender differences affects how they learn. Approximate running time: 180 minutes. Three CDs.

The End of Molasses Classes: Getting Our Kids Unstuck--101 Extraordinary Solutions for Parents and Teachers
A new book from bestselling author, award-winning educator, and founder of the Ron Clark Academy provides 101 revolutionary and powerful ways for parents, teachers, and communities to uplift, educate, and raise the children of America.

Ron Clark’s breakout bestseller, The Essential 55, lit a fire under parents and teachers everywhere to raise their standards and expect the best from our children. Using the proceeds, Ron established the non-profit Ron Clark Academy (RCA), a revolutionary model school located in Atlanta whose mission is to have a profound impact on the lives and futures of all students who enter. Each year some 3,000 teachers from around the world visit the school to see how thinking outside the box can help create winning results.

Now, Ron shares the wisdom he has painstakingly learned from building a school from the ground up. There are many groundbreaking in invaluable lessons here for teachers on how to promote success and get the most from each and every lesson, but this is also for parents and the community, as we all have a share in the responsibility of raising inspired and creative kids.

The RCA way demands that we change the way we teach our kids. This includes:

• Only reward excellence. Parents and teachers should have high expectations for their kids and not give a cookie for average work.

• Education is a shared responsibility. Parents need to be as involved in their kid’s education as teachers.

• Teach to the brightest in the room, but uplift the students who have the furthest to go.

• Only the best teachers should be hired and retained. This means increasing pay, but also changing the tenure system.

It is time to “Get on the Desk” and make every school in America an excellent school that values every student.

Montessori from the Start: The Child at Home, from Birth to Age Three
What can parents do to help their youngest children in their task of self-formation? How does the Montessori method of hands-on learning and self-discovery relate to the youngest infants? This authoritative and accessible book answers these and many other questions. Based on Dr. Maria Montessori's instructions for raising infants, its comprehensive exploration of the first three years incorporates the furnishings and tools she created for the care and comfort of babies. From the design of the baby's bedroom to the child-sized kitchen table, from diet and food preparation to clothing and movement, the authors provide guidance for the establishment of a beautiful and serviceable environment for babies and very young children. They introduce concepts and tasks, taking into account childrens' "sensitive periods" for learning such skills as dressing themselves, food preparation, and toilet training. Brimming with anecdote and encouragement, and written in a clear, engaging style, Montessori from the Start is a practical and useful guide to raising calm, competent, and confident children.
