In order for students to compete in today’s global economy, our schools need to help them develop better cognitive and technological skills. School counselors have an enormous impact on students’ achievement and their success in their post-secondary education, yet initiatives to improve student outcomes often overlook them. Fitzpatrick and Costantini present their own action-based curriculum for high school counselors that will meet the needs of 21st century students, helping to foster their growth and ambition and actively engage them in learning what they need to succeed beyond high school. Important steps covered in this curriculum include Making the transition to ninth grade successful Using technology in the advising process, such as online resources for college and career research, assessing interests, and structuring advising sessions Preparing for standardized testing and using it to motivate students about the college application process Assisting students in researching careers and colleges, making the most of college visits, applying for college, and writing the application essay Equally important, the book focuses on the counselor and his or her role as an advocate and leader for students and details running a guidance office, working with parents, and writing Secondary School Reports.

Learning Throughout Life

An Intergenerational Perspective

The dangers of age segregation and the benefits of age integration are examined. Each generation should be recognized as an essential source for learning. Harmony will increasingly depend on general awareness of how other age groups interpret events, respect for values that guide their behavior, responsiveness to their needs and concerns, consideration of their criticisms and solutions, and acknowledgement of their contributions. This book describes: (a) personality assets and mental abilities to focus learning at each stage of development; (b) obstacles to anticipate and overcome; (c) a rationale to make reciprocal learning common; (d) research findings which identify generational learning needs; and (e) benefits of providing lifelong education. Six stages are explored: infancy and early childhood (birthage 6); middle and later childhood (ages 610); adolescence (ages 1020); early adulthood (ages 2040); middle adulthood (ages 4060); and older adulthood (age 60+). Some outcomes of lifelong learning include selfcontrol, patience, integrity, resilience, persistence, problem solving ability, acceptance of criticism, and generativity. The intended audiences for this book are professionals working with individuals and families.

Werden wir irgendwann durch Wände gehen können? In Raumschiffen mit Lichtgeschwindigkeit zu fernen Planeten reisen? Wird es uns möglich sein, Gedanken zu lesen? Oder Gegenstände allein mit unserer Willenskraft zu bewegen? Bislang waren derlei Fähigkeiten Science-Fiction- und Fantasy-Helden vorbehalten. Aber müssen sie deshalb auf immer unerreichbar bleiben? Der renommierte Physiker Michio Kaku zeigt uns, was nach dem gegenwärtigen Stand der Wissenschaft möglich ist und was vielleicht in Jahrhunderten oder Jahrtausenden realisierbar sein wird. Seine Ergebnisse überraschen – und eröffnen faszinierende Perspektiven auf die Welt von morgen. «Eine großartige Quelle der Wissenschaftsunterhaltung.» DIE ZEIT «Man wird geradezu hineingezogen in die Welt der kleinsten Teilchen und größten Dimensionen – und stellt mit Verwunderung fest, dass es trotz der phantastischen Ideen letztlich um den eigenen Alltag geht.» Saarländischer Rundfunk

Die überwucherten Tempelruinen von Angkor Wat, die zerfallenden Pyramiden der Maya in Yucatan und die rätselhaften Moai-Statuen der Osterinsel - sie alle sind stille Zeugen einstmals blühender Kulturen, die irgendwann verschwanden. Doch was waren die Ursachen dafür? Jared Diamond zeichnet die Muster nach, die dem Untergang von Gesellschaften (oder ihrem Überleben) zugrunde liegen, und zeigt, was wir für unsere Zukunft daraus lernen können.

Der Klassiker zum Wiederentdecken: Mit seinem Weltbestseller revolutionierte der Bergsteiger und Schriftsteller Jon Krakauer die Abenteuerliteratur – und läßt Spannung und Faszination, Fassungslosigkeit und blankes Entsetzen eins werden. 1996 nahm der amerikanische Journalist Jon Krakauer an einer Mount-Everest-Expedition teil. Das Unternehmen endete in einer Katastrophe, fünf von Krakauers Kameraden kamen auf tragische Weise in einem peitschenden Schneesturm ums Leben, er selbst konnte sich mit letzter Kraft in Sicherheit bringen. Minutiös und eindrucksvoll schildert er in diesem Bericht den Verlauf der Expedition. Er äußert sich außerdem kritisch über die Auswüchse des modernen Alpinismus mit seinen oft tödlichen Folgen, vermittelt aber zugleich einen Eindruck von der magischen Anziehungskraft und der Faszination des Bergsteigens.
