It discusses cooperative learning and communities of practice; cooperative learning and neuroscience; cooperative learning and critical thinking; cooperative learning and alternative assessment; cooperative learning and multiple intelligence; cooperative learning and positive education; cooperative learning and meeting the needs of introverts; and cooperative learning and justice issues, with each chapter exploring a different aspect of how education can be student centered.If you are looking for a fresh perspective on cooperative learning, this book is for you.

Celebrating The Quiet Child: A Must Read For Every Parent, Teacher, Mentor, Sports Coach, Who Is Interested In Raising The Self-esteem of Kids And Teens From Prasenjeet Kumar, the author of Quiet Phoenix, the Amazon #1 Bestseller, comes a sequel, and a biography for kids aged 9-12 years, that no one who deals with introverted children should miss. The underlying theme of the book is that just as a Phoenix Bird is hardwired to be reborn from the ashes of her ancestors, her tears are meant to cure wounds and she symbolises undying hope and optimism, so is your Quiet child built for persistence, creativity, self-discipline, and for displaying a knack for self-learning, high emotional intelligence and an impeccable sense of moral responsibility. ˃˃˃ Instead of cherishing such rare traits Introverts are sadly often misunderstood by almost every one. * Parents worry if their children prefer spending time in solitude, probably day dreaming. * Teachers presume that if a child hesitates to answer questions, she must be having some kind of learning or even social disability. * Quiet Children have difficulties in making friends, with their classmates seeing them as “weird”, “rude” or “arrogant”. * They are seen as “over” sensitive to mean comments or bullying. * They appear to lack aggression or as some say 'the will to fight back’. * Overall, introverted children seem to be more flustered about almost every facet of life in noisy and large Public Schools. ˃˃˃ Any advice that Quiet children should be more 'outgoing’, 'sociable’ and 'active’ seems to be counter-productive. Any aggressive follow up on this advice often results in your Quiet child losing her self-esteem, forcing her to become even more withdrawn. ˃˃˃ With fables, stories and real incidents from the author’s own childhood, “Quiet Phoenix 2: From Failure to Fulfilment” is a memoir for teens and kids that Reiterates that introvert Children being asked to behave in a more extroverted fashion is like asking a young Phoenix bird to behave like an Eagle. Every child is born with some unique traits. The challenge is: how parents, teachers and friends can recognize, nurture and enhance those powers so that every child, quiet or loquacious, becomes a winner. ˃˃˃ “Quiet Phoenix 2: From Failure to Fulfilment” sincerely intends to help everyone dealing with ‘Quiet Children’ to cherish and celebrate for what they are. And to help them rise above everything; to lead them towards a path of happiness leaving behind all old memories of pain and isolation; and to turn them into life’s winners. Just like the Phoenix rising from the ashes. ˃˃˃ With real life characters like Ms. Brownie Points, Mr. Noisy Ferrari and Ms. Pencil Snatcher, this biography for teens and kids is intended for everyone--a parent, teacher, or sports Coach. Who wants to understand how to harness the powers of Quiet children in an extroverted world. And if you are an introvert adult, you may find this book useful in understanding yourself, your past and what you want out of life in the future. So what are you waiting for?

WRITING: TEN CORE CONCEPTS is based on ten fundamental lessons-the Core Concepts-that student writers must learn to become sophisticated writers. The thorough integration of these Core Concepts distinguishes the book from all other writing guides. Most composition textbooks present far more material than students could ever grasp and retain in a single semester. That approach ultimately waters down the most essential lessons students need to learn for their different writing tasks. Emphasizing writing as an interaction between a writer and a reader, WRITING: TEN CORE CONCEPTS offers students guidance in three main aims of writing and a way to participate in the important conversations that shape our lives. Each student text is packaged with a free Cengage Essential Reference Card to the MLA HANDBOOK, Eighth Edition. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
