  1. Thinking Protocols for Learning

    Thinking protocols for learning empowers readers to implement deliberate practice and intentional application of protocols, and provides strategies for the promotion of different types of thinking. These are not time fillers or isolated activities; they integrate instruction for crucial skills into the existing curriculum for more effective engagement. Educators often struggle to find a resource that addresses all of the key types of thinking. This book is a response to that need, drawing on and concisely synthesising ideas and approaches from many different areas and authors. Thinking protocols for learning is an essential resource that gives educators the tools to prepare students for the future.

  2. Educating and Raising Boys

    Modern education is failing our boys. Educating and raising boys challenges society’s war on boys and boyishness and encourages educators and parents to expand their understanding of the male brain to better support the boys in their lives. By examining the behaviour of boys from a neuroscientific standpoint and how the hardwiring in their brains influences the way they learn, author Michael Nagel challenges readers to examine how we currently engage with boys physically, academically, emotionally and spiritually. Rather than expect boys to change, readers will learn how to best adapt their own behaviour to ensure they are allowing boys to flourish.
