Author: Erik Palmer
With the Common Core State Standards emphasizing listening and speaking across the curriculum, these long-neglected language arts are regaining a place in schools. For teachers, this means reexamining practices and rethinking expectations. How much do we know about teaching listening and speaking as the complex communication skills they are? How do we teach students to discuss appropriately, integrate and understand the mountains of information they receive, and express themselves clearly and effectively? In this lively and practical book, 20-year teaching veteran Erik Palmer presents an approach aligned to the six Common Core anchor standards for speaking and listening but focused on preparing students for 21st century communication inside and beyond the classroom. Here, you'll get concrete guidance for teaching and assessing * Collaborative discussion * Listening and media literacy * Questioning and reasoning * Speech presentation * Effective multimedia use * Adapting speech to different content and tasks With due respect to reading and writing, we do most of our communicating--in the classroom and in life--through listening and speaking. Filled with examples and specific activities targeted to variety of subjects and grade levels, this book is an essential resource for all teachers interested in helping students acquire core skills that cross the content areas and support long-term success.

As we enter the 21st century, questions of language and communications have never been more strongly posed. To celebrate the "century of langauge" this book deals with advances in modern languages teaching and learning across Europe. Individual chapters examine the developments in teaching methodologies over the past 100 years and the theoretical advances in our understanding of how languages are learned. The example of Communicative Language Teaching is used to illustrate the principles and purpose of learning a second language. The need for combining the content and form of language learning in a much more integrated fashion is set out; for example, teaching a curriculum subject through a foreign language. Individual national case studies show how these developments have been applied in a range of cultural contexts.

Consider that many of the people who are alive today will be working at jobs that do not currently exist and that the explosion of information means that today's knowledge will quickly become outdated. As a result, two goals for education clearly emerge -- learning how to learn and how to think critically about information that changes at a rapid rate. We face a multitude of new challenges to our natural environment, difficult dilemmas concerning the use of weapons of mass destruction, political agendas for the distribution of scarce commodities and wealth, psychological problems of loneliness and depression, escalating violence, and an expanding elderly population. International in scope and in magnitude, these new problems strain resources and threaten the continuance of life on earth. To creatively and effectively attack these imminent problems, a well educated, thinking populace is essential. An abridged edition of Halpern's best-selling text, Critical Thinking Across the Curriculum is designed to help students enhance their thinking skills in every class. The skills discussed are needed in every academic area and setting -- both in and out of class. They are: determining cause; assessing likelihood and uncertainty; comprehending complex text; solving novel problems; making good decisions; evaluating claims and evidence; and thinking creatively. In this adaptation of her best-selling text, Diane Halpern applies the theories and research of cognitive psychology to the development of critical thinking and learning skills needed in the increasingly complex world in which we work and live. The book is distinguished by its clear writing style, humorous tone, many practical examples and anecdotes, and rigorous academic grounding. Everyday examples and exercises promote the transfer of critical thinking skills and dispositions to real-world settings and problems. The goal is to help readers recognize when and how to apply the thinking skills needed to analyze arguments, reason clearly, identify and solve problems, and make sound decisions. Also of importance, a general thinking skills framework ties the chapters together, but each is written so that it can "stand alone." This organization allows for maximum flexibility in the selection of topics and the order in which they are covered. This book is intended for use in any course emphasizing critical thinking as an approach to excellence in thinking and learning.

This book emphasizes ways in which communication skills are used to enhance the learning process in the disciplines. Specifically, it presents experiences and best practices from institutions in various cultures – the United States, India, Egypt, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Australia. Related pedagogical issues that affect engagement - critical inquiry, creativity and integrity - are given prominence. The title “Sustaining Excellence in Communicating across the Curriculum: Cross-Institutional Experiences and Best Practices,” thus, provides a framework for the variety of practices that foster student empowerment, cultivate ownership of expression, and sustain learning excellence within and across disciplines. Scholars of CAC, teachers concerned with active, engaging pedagogies across the disciplines, and applied linguists will find this anthology particularly appealing. The culture-specific experiences are intriguing, highlighting surprising similarities and differences in the application of CAC theory.
