About the first edition: "School governors will find this a sound and practical guide to the nature of their responsibilities and the process of managing their workload. It is well researched, based on vast experience, illustrated from the best practice, free from jargon – and always interesting." Joan Sallis. Described by the National Association of Governors and Managers as "definitely a ‘must’ for your bookshelf"; reviewed in the Times Educational Supplement as an "essential guide to help governors". This book is about governing schools – about how a governing board made up largely of ‘ordinary’ people with no professional educational experience, working in partnership with professional leaders, can help to make schools better. It is intended for governors in schools in England and Wales, in other parts of the world where lay people engage in school leadership, and for people who work with governors. Improving School Governance examines: How school governors got to be where they are today How governing boards do their jobs How individual governors can best contribute to their schools Governors’ accountability The nature of governors’ meetings The rights that governors have The relationships between governors and the headteacher The role of governing boards in school inspection Governors’ relationships with parents and the wider community How to evaluate the performance and impact of governing boards What the future might hold for state-funded schools and their governance What national strategic issues will need to be addressed by governing boards in the next five to ten years

For some students, the mere thought of solving a word problem can transform even the most confident among them into nervous wrecks. In her guidebook, Math Vitamins, retired educator Loretta Jean Everhart shares her methods of success that will help any student from Pre-K to fifth grade effectively solve even the most challenging word problems. Everhart taught elementary students for over thirty years and relies on her diverse experience working with students of all levels to offer useful techniques and step-by-step guidance that will lead parents and teachers through several ways to cope with math anxiety, improve math writing and vocabulary, and use cooperative learning to solve word problems. While providing simple strategies like having children work on jigsaw puzzles to learn guess and test methodologies, Everhart also shares an in-depth exploration of Polya’s four-step model, which helps children first understand the problem and then develop a plan on how to answer it. For the parent of a home-schooled child or for teacher who is searching for new ideas, this innovative guidebook offers practical tips and suggestions that will help lead struggling students out of the often tricky world of word problems and onto a successful path of future problem solving.
