Excellent eBooks with a novel approach

'A Class Apart' by Alec Klein. In "A Class Apart", Alec Klein isn't only recounting the saga of one semester in this prestigious one hundred and three year-old New York City public high school, that is noted not only for its academic excellence in the sciences and mathematics, but truly, for having had such a profound impact on American intellectual life in everything from politics and law to literature and the performing arts. Klein's representation of Stuyvesant as a hotbed of intellectual activity, where the students excel and the teachers encourage, is certainly not false. But it is extremely narrow. Klein writes of the spattering of advanced math and science courses; the exemplary English classes; the self-sacrificing and highly dedicated teachers; the student who brings a textbook to Senior Prom. He writes of the students and parents who fret over grades of 98 and 97, and the intense competition to get into highly coveted colleges. To his credit, Klein has no pretenses that all the students at Stuyvesant are extraordinarily gifted. Klein captured the incredible collection of moving parts beautifully, and his largely gentle treatment of the students made for a truly warm read.

'The Mislabeled Child:' by Brock & Fernette Eide. The Eides take a new and refreshing approach to many of the concerns and challenges that impact our children's ability to learn. Informative and well documented, this eBook is appropriate for anyone involved with children, including parents, teachers, therapists, and physicians. On the back cover is a quote from Paul Beljan,president , American Board of Pediatric Neuropsychology where he states : "This is the kind of book that parent's will want to keep out and refer to again and again. This book provides a comprehensive, commonsense and scientifically insightful overview of the causes and behaviors associated with a number of learning problems." That say's it right there. Good and educational read! Use the Coupon code below to receive a Discount on either of these two eBooks.

A Class Apart eBook edition by Klein, Alec
Enter Stuyvesant High, one of the most extraordinary schools in America, a place where the brainiacs prevail and jocks are embarrassed to admit they play on the woeful football team. Academic competition is so intense that students say they can have only two of these three things: good grades, a social life, or sleep.

Recommended eBooks About Education

'TABE Test Of Adult Basic Education' by Phyllis Dutwin. I recommend this book for someone who does not have time to take a remedial English class. This eBook is a great tool for study. I do agree it is "the First Step to Lifelong Success" as a student and for any professional. I believe that adults need a refresher course from time to time no matter what profession they are in. GED students will most likely be familiar to the TABE tests because it is used to help the teacher locate the grade level of the student through the test scores. They help the student by the practice of taking tests. This is a eBook designed to help the student improve their skills by taking the TABE test.

'Getting Started with English Language Learners' by Judie Haynes. Getting Started with English Language Learners is especially valuable for educators who are new to the ESL field yet recommended to ESL teachers of all experience levels. These assessments should provide teachers with a realistic picture of what individual ELLs can do without focusing unduly on what they can't do." From basic concepts of second-language acquisition theory, to the best way to handle newcomers' first weeks of school, to differentiating instruction for English language learners, programs for English language learners, and more, Getting Started with English Language Learners is a top-quality resource.

'The Cure for the Common School' by Lee Ognibene. Reading THE CURE FOR THE COMMON SCHOOL feels far more like being in conversation with an inspired and inspiring teacher than it does reading a typical text on theoretical pedagogy. This book takes one through his time tested method of whole teaching and motivational techniques for today's students of all ages. This very readable eBook will make your face (and heart) light up too.

'Experience And Education' by John Dewey. Very useful and informative eBook. Dewey set some of the philosophical standards of education in our country. Like it or not, the information is, like so much of philosophy, opinion based. This is a great book about education in the United States and World. I highly recommend it. It illustrates many shortcomings in modern education because of governmental, parental and teacher input error. A must read for all. As always… Use the Coupon Code below for a Discount on either of these two eBook Titles.

The Cure for the Common School (Adobe Reader) eBook edition by Ognibene, Lee
Most American students are bored and uninspired; our teachers are overwhelmed and losing hope; our schools have fallen behind the rest of the world in the subjects of science, math, and reading. And Lee Ognibene has the cure.
